Barnes County Commissioners voted to send notice to Valley City regarding termination of the existing 9-1-1 contract during their regular meeting on Jan. 8.
According to Stateâs Attorney, Lee Grossman, the old contract, which dates from the 1990s, needed to be updated regardless of whether the 9-1-1 system is taken over by Barnes County.
The current contract, as it is written, will end on July 16.
Commissioners also considered pay and benefits for city employed 9-1-1 dispatchers who may become county employees if Barnes County takes over day-to-day operations of the 9-1-1 system.

The Valley City City Commission decided Monday during its finance meeting to consider reconstituting building permit fees in Valley City.
âIn 2004, the city voted to eliminate all fees on building permits in the city,â Valley City City Administrator David Schelkoph said.
That vote remained in effect for six years, which has expired, so now the commission is able to consider reconstituting building permit fees.
