The Lisbon Town Council will hold a workshop Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 6 p.m. at the town office to discuss dispatch consolidation.

The meeting had been scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 24 but was postponed due to anticipated incliment weather. 

Dispatch consolidation with Androscoggin County’s dispatch service is something town officials looked into in 2015 and ultimately decided against. Androscoggin County’s dispatch service currently handles the town’s emergency 911 calls.

Lisbon Town Manager Diane Barnes said since four new councilors have joined the council, there have been many questions and comments from residents.

Barnes said councilors decided to hold a workshop with stakeholders to ask questions and gather information. The workshop on the issue does not mean there is another proposal to consolidate the town’s dispatch services, she said. It is a good opportunity to ask questions.
