Suburban Parochialism in Kettering.

The Ketteringites have collected 4,000 signatures opposing a consolidated emergency dispatch center(where the various city and suburban dispatch centers for fire, police,EMS, would be consolidated into one central center.

Sounds reasonable and a common sense thing? Maybe just some technical details to be worked out?

Apparently not to the Kettering folks, who want their own little dispatch center. Anything that smacks of consolidation is scary to them. Common sense and cost savings are irrelevant.

So, something that seems innocuos becomes a controversy, leading to a grass roots movement and petitition drives.
