An audit shows the Deschutes County 911 Center has spent $300,000 in overtime in last year’s budget. Officials are trying to fix that. Rob Poirer is the Director of the Deschutes County 911 Center. 1110 KBND asked him why all the overtime? “Part of it was illness, part of it was short staffed. Right now we are trying to recruit for four openings that we have. So, when you have people in training, but they are not released yet to actually cover positions, it makes it problematic.” Poirer says he wants his staff to be involved in the solution to cut overtime expense. The 911 Center employs a little over 40 people with an annual payroll including benefits of a little over $4-million. He is hoping come up with a solution by the middle of next month. Note: The 911 Center will have a public open house Tuesday from four to 6pm in the Public Safety Complex on Poe Sholes Drive. A short presentation and question and answer session will be conducted at 5pm.
