KEYSER, W.Va. — The Mineral County commissioners voted Tuesday to approve a new strategic plan for the 911 center.
“This plan will help the 911 center move forward and plan for the next 5 to 10 years,” Luke McKenzie, director of the county’s Office of Emergency Management, said. “The plan includes personnel changes, revised budgets and technology upgrades.”
According to McKenzie, the 911 center has had staffing problems and would like the center to be financially stable.
“This plan will help the center run smoothly, so I am all for it,” Commissioner Richard Lechliter said.
The commissioners also voted to purchase four new public terminals/computers for the county clerk’s office.
“We have been borrowing two terminals for about a year and they aren’t even enough,” said Mineral County Clerk Lauren Ellifritz. “Four will be the right amount and we won’t have people hovering over each other on the terminals.”
