(DAVIESS CO.) - The Daviess County Council took a second step toward helping a county business add more jobs.

Last week the council passed a resolution in support of tax abatement for a new building at Maysville Enterprises.

Final action on the proposal will come at the Council's December meeting.

The Council also approved a request to use E-911 funds by the Montgomery-Cannelburg Fire Department and the Washington Fire Department.

The Montgomery-Cannelburg Fire Department needs to move a repeater to eliminate a radio communication dead zone with the Dispatch Center at the Sheriff's Department.

Washington Fire Chief David Rhoads told the Council that 80 percent of all 9-1-1 calls are made from cell phones which automatically go to County Dispatch. Valuable, potentially life-saving, time is lost if the County Dispatch has to call the Washington Police Dispatch before the Fire Department can be sent on a run.

The Washington Fire Department and Sheriff Jerry Harbstreit asked for funds to eliminate that dead zone.
