Mt. Vernon Board of Aldermen sticks with Monett dispatching, for now

Springer said the Lawrence County Commission has already signed a three-year agreement with Monett. A competing offer was made by the city of Aurora to provide dispatching services, however, Springer said that not all the equipment is in place for the Aurora proposal. Springer also said that Aurora’s numbers probably would be much different from Monett’s in the end.

Alderman Kathy Fairchild offered the motion to accept the Monett proposal, saying that she didn’t see another option.

“I would like to go on record as saying, I’m not happy with the way Monett has handled things … that said, Monett is the best solution for right now.”

In the following vote, Alderman Craig Nelson was the lone dissenter. Nelson, also a volunteer firefighter, has spoken of issues he has had with Monett dispatching at previous meetings.

 In other business, the board:

- Re-elected board members and the mayor were sworn-in.

- Approved making the intersection of Alice and McCanse streets an all-way stop.

Is the recession over?

Hey, look at that idiot right above me blaming conservatives. We have been telling them for months and months that a mega-depression is coming. We told them they were a big fail. We told them they were like locusts...destroying and then pointing the finger.
