VIDEO: Marquette County Central Dispatch is receiving some much-needed improvements thanks to the Marquette County taxpayers. The center has been having issues with its fire dispatching due to aging equipment. A department on the county’s western edge says these issues affect how quickly crews can arrive on the scene. “Now a few months past here, we’ve been having problems getting clear precise pages. There’s been a lot of static and interruptions and the dispatcher’s voices coming through to us so at times we don’t know exactly where to go or what exactly the problem was,” Michigamme Spurr Fire Department Firefighter Charles Gardner said. On Tuesday night the Marquette County Board approved $150,000 to update the fire dispatch equipment.
