October 17, 2012

Barnes County commissioners approved in a 3-2 vote to move 911 operations to the county. The decision came after much discussion both during the regular county commission meeting Tuesday and in meetings prior involving the city and county over who would control 911.

A mid-2013 deadline to upgrade existing 911 systems to digital, “next generation” 911 was set by Gov. Jack Dalrymple. Valley City and Barnes County are interested in a joint powers agreement that has been formed between Richland and Stutsman County for sharing the cost of the new equipment.

A scam has begun circulating in Valley City, trying to convince residents they have won $50 in gift cards, said Valley City Police Chief Fred Thompson Monday.

Thompson said Valley City police learned of the scam about one week ago. It consists of written documents claiming the user can obtain vouchers for $50 in Walmart gift cards in return for receiving up to three issues of magazines. Readers are instructed to call an 800 number to receive the gift card voucher.
