Mahaska County E911 Service Board Enters New 28E Agreement

Oskaloosa, Iowa – The Mahaska County E911 Service Board created a new 28E agreement to hire Mahaska County Emergency Management to manage the 911 operations for them.

The E911 Service Board held a meeting on January 2nd, 2020 after their previous 28E agreement with Mahaska EMA was held invalid by a Mahaska County District Court Judge.

The judge expressed concerns over the agreement because there had been non-voting members of the 911 Board that had voted for the initial agreement back in 2015. Concern was also raised that the agreement was difficult for the agreement to be ended.

The new 28E agreement was voted on by the correct members of the board, and also addressed the clause to exit the agreement, satisfying issues specified by the judge.

The Mahaska County Emergency Management Commission met following the E911 Service Board meeting, also agreeing to the new 28E agreement.

Both boards approved the new 28E agreement unanimously, with the exception of Mahaska County Supervisor Mark Groenendyk, who expressed his concerns about the new agreement.
