An informational joint meeting with the Horton City/Brown County Commissioners will be held next Tuesday July 15th at the Horton Blue Building starting at 6:00 p.m. The purpose of the meeting is to gather further information and hear public comments from representatives of Emergency Response Representatives and community members in which we serve, regarding the possibility of merging the Horton Communications Center with Brown County Communications and relocating the Dispatchers to Hiawatha. I ask that public comments be limited and respectful as the decision makers involved have a very tough decision to make as there are pros and cons to whatever decision iseventually made. There likely will not be time for every individual to speak, so please feel free to contact The Mayor, Commissioners, City Administrator, Sheriff Merchant or myself with your concerns! Respectfully, Chief Calhoon
