SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Johnson County Board of Supervisors voted Thursday to send a letter to all the entities involved in the Joint Emergency Communication Center expressing various concerns held by the supervisors, said Supervisor Sally Stutsman.

"The Board of Supervisors has a problem with how the policy board is running the center," Stutsman said.

Currently, the communication center has a non-elected individual serving in the emergency-manager position, she said. The supervisors would like to see all staff elected to their positions.

Another concern is the exact size of staff the center will need, Stutsman said.

The letter will be sent out later this week, and the supervisors plan to wait for a response before moving forward on the issue.

The entities include Iowa City, North Liberty, and Coralville.
