Deschutes County 911 officials are hoping that voters will approve a measure on the May 15th ballot that will provide stable funding for the agency. Currently, they have to go to voters every 3 to 5 years to ask for money. Director Rob Poirier was a guest on 1110 KBND’s Your Town on Wednesday. “It’s difficult, especially in this day and age when you're doing long term capital it. Planning for things like Nextgen 911, and when you only have a 3 to 5 year window on.” And then we have to go out every 3 to 5 years that obviously takes time and money from the District. He says it can also be stressful for 911 employees who may fear that their jobs are in jeopardy if the new levy doesn't pass. He says that can hinder their ability to get and keep good workers.
