At Town Meeting this year, voters in many communities will be asked whether to form the Chittenden County Public Safety Authority, a new union municipal district to provide regional emergency dispatch services. The Public Safety Authority would serve as the central hub to dispatch police, fire and rescue personnel for the communities it serves, and take on the role as the region’s 911 call answering center.
