MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - An effort to create a regional emergency dispatch center in central Vermont has received a vote of confidence from city councilors in Montpelier, but they say they still need to see a more detailed plan.

The Times Argus reports the Montpelier City Council gave the Central Vermont Public Safety Authority four weeks to provide more specifics. At a meeting Wednesday, some councilors raised concerns that there had been significant revisions to the proposal recently.

The authority’s board chairman Tom Golonka said the changes were based on feedback from officials in Montpelier and Barre, which would also be covered by the dispatch center.

The authority had planned to take over municipal dispatch centers in both cities, but now wants to start with Montpelier and grow into Barre.
