City officials appear to be planning to continue as a subscriber to ChatComm emergency dispatch services, rather than joining the authority. The city’s current agreement with the Chattahoochee River 911 Authority expires Aug. 31.

In January, ChatComm, owned by Johns Creek and Sandy Springs, offered to allow Dunwoody to join as a member for a annual fee of $1.075 million or to continue as a subscriber for $1.2 million a year.

Since January, ChatComm has reduced to $1.125 million a year the amount it wants to charge Dunwoody to subscribe, Acting City Manager Billy Grogan told the council in a memo.

“I definitely agree being a subscriber is the right approach,” City Councilman Terry Nall said during the council’s May 12 meeting.
