Morrow reconsiders E911 emergency system

The Morrow City Council will discuss using the E911 Emergency System during its regular meeting at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 23 in the council chambers of the Morrow Municipal Complex, 1500 Morrow Road.

The council approved the use of the system in December, allowing Clayton County to answer calls and relay them to Morrow police and fire departments, but has not yet made the switch from using its own call center. The switch was scheduled for last month, but the city will discuss whether it’s ready to switch systems during Tuesday’s meeting.

The council will also consider approval of two invoices from Fincher, Denmark and Minnifield, as payment for legal services rendered to the city.

An emergency ordinance will be considered as well, which would allow the installation of large signs, measuring 35 square feet or 20 feet long, and the use of electronic messaging equipment in the city.
