STEVENS POINT, WI (WSAU) -  The back-and-forth process of merging the Stevens Point and Portage County emergency dispatch operations is before the City Council today. The council is expected to go into closed session and discuss possible personnel issues before a likely open session vote on the proposal.

If the City approves the plan, there are still details to work out including the transfer of city dispatch staff to the county dispatch center, the related contracts, and some contract language.

A timeline for the merger hasn’t been worked out yet, but County Executive Patty Dreier says it is possible to make it happen before the January 1st 2014 target date.
