Pappas rejects bringing 9-1-1 dispatch back to city control.
Editor’s Note: North Tonawanda Mayor Arthur Pappas issued a statement on the debate over control of 911 dispatch an effort to end public safety discussions. The following statement is attributable to NT PBA President Daryl Truty.
“We are extremely disappointed in the mayor’s actions today. He completely overstated the level of interest the city took in our public safety concerns and he mischaracterized the PBA’s interactions with county officials in discussing the county-run 9-1-1 dispatch process.
