A Resolution Authorizing the County Administrator to Take All Actions Necessary to Dissolve the Warrenton-Fauquier Joint Communications Center Agreement

Topic Description:

On October 18, 1991, Fauquier County entered into an Agreement by and between the Town of Warrenton, The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office, and the Fauquier Fire and Rescue Association to establish a Joint Communications Center.  This Center became operational on July 1, 1994.


As the terms of this Agreement have not been formally adhered to and are somewhat obsolete, this resolution authorizes the County Administrator to take the necessary actions to dissolve the Agreement.  The Joint Communications Center will continue to provide dispatch services to both Fauquier County and the Town of Warrenton.


The terms of the Agreement provide that it is subject to dissolution upon the mutual agreement of  the Warrenton Town Council and the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors.  Either party may discontinue its participation at the end of any fiscal year, subject to one year’s written notice to the other party.
