The Aurora Beacon News has an article about possible changes for the Montgomery Dispatch Center:

Trustees in the Village of Montgomery are expected to discuss the future of their police dispatchers at their board meeting Monday night.

The catalyst for the change was when Sugar Grove notified the village they are moving from having Montgomery dispatch calls for their police and fire protection. The $200,000 in revenue from Sugar Grove will also go away and the village is left to decide if they will continue to operate their dispatch center, with less revenue or also move.

“The village currently provides dispatch services to Sugar Grove Police and
Fire, Montgomery Countryside Fire, Aurora Township Fire and Waubonsee
Community College,” according to Police Chief Dan Meyers.

Acting Village Administrator and Finance Administrator Jeff Zoephel said
the switch to a regional group would amount to a cost savings but said that
figure is not yet available.

Meyers also states in the memo he would recommend the village partner with
Ken-Com Public Safety Dispatch. “Currently the majority of the Village’s
population, (57 percent) is in Kendall County. Also, the majority of our
commercial and retail businesses are in Kendall County.”
