Lack of interest from the most of the 15 communities in Sullivan County was the reason County Officials gave for tabling talks on the proposed central dispatch center. The proposal called for the central dispatch to be housed in Claremont.
On Mon. May 6, Newport’s Selectboard voted unanimously not to take part in the Sullivan County Central Dispatch due to information the Board currently had but they offered to be on a committee if one formed.
Other towns not interested in the dispatch center were Croydon,Langston, Plainfield and Washington.
