Staff Summary

                     Lake County wishes to issue bonds to fund the construction and equipping of a consolidated 911 and emergency operations center, improve the site, and potentially finance other capital expenditures for the County and to support the 911 Dispatch Center, the Emergency Management Agency, and the Emergency Telephone Systems Board (ETSB). The project will create shared staff support areas and shared facility support areas that will benefit the entire county.
