BOZEMAN, Mont. – The City of Bozeman and Gallatin County have met to discuss problems with the current 911 dispatch center.

This comes after Bozeman emergency officials brought up concerns with 911 response times to the county. The county initially responded that they were not interested in meeting with Bozeman police or the Bozeman fire unions to discuss the issue. County Administrator Jim Doar says the meeting with Bozeman City Manager Andrea Surratt was productive and a start for future conversations and solutions for the dispatch issues.

“It went well, the city and the county are trying hard to see each other’s perspective it’s still going to take some ongoing conversation,” said Doar.

A date and time haven’t been set for an additional meeting between city and county to discuss this topic.
