EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey county has called a meeting of local officials over a proposal to centralize emergency dispatching in a $25 million building slated to be built at Stockton University.

The Press of Atlantic City reports (https://bit.ly/21IxnHm ) the meeting will be held Tuesday night in Egg Harbor Township.

Some mayors say they don’t have enough information about how much centralized dispatching in Atlantic County would cost or save their taxpayers. Under the plan, the cost of dispatching would be dropped from municipal taxes but tacked onto county bills.

County Executive Dennis Levinson says the county wants to know what issues towns see with the plan before they spend any more money on it.
