Gering, Minatare go to court over 911 services

Posted: Updated:

Gering and Minatare have gone to court to ensure Scotts Bluff County won't stop providing them with emergency dispatch services.

Attorneys for the two Panhandle cities filed a request for injunctive relief on Tuesday and asked Scotts Bluff County District Court to set a hearing. The complaint says the county didn't provide proper notice of its intention to terminate services. The county had set a Dec. 17 deadline for its partners in the service to sign a new contract dealing with the costs of new equipment for the county's communications center.

But Gering Mayor Ed Mayo has said the county's stance was unacceptable and that the city couldn't sign an open-ended agreement sought by the county.

Scotts Bluff County Commissioner Mark Masterton said Tuesday that he's disappointed by Mayo's response.
