Troyer vs. Commissioners Over 911 Control, Director Resigns
Friday Mar 07, 2014 5:52am
Angola, IN

(ANGOLA) - A battle has erupted between Steuben County Sheriff Tim Troyer and Steuben County Commissioners over control of County Communications. Troyer states in a letter that Communications is suffering from a critical lack of manpower, direction, and resources and it has reached the point it can no longer safely operate. Troyer went on to say that under its current management, only three of the twelve full-time positions are filled and that Communications Director Cindy Snyder, who was appointed by the County Commissioners, gave her notice of resignation on Thursday. He added the full-time dispatcher and Indiana Data and Communications Systems (IDACS) coordinator quit via a text message last week. The Sheriff says the current staff is working up to 16 hour shifts and that the lack of staff has been an issue for the past year. Troyer says Snyder came to him on Tuesday and told him of the current situation, and asked him to assume control of Communications. Together they went to Commission Chair Ron Smith where according to Troyer, she again said she was stepping down and requested and recommended that Communications become a division of the Sheriff’s Office. But Troyer says the Commissioners are not convinced that Communications should be a division of the Sheriff’s Office. While he has temporarily assigned full time deputies to dispatch through Monday, Troyer is threatening to return to three employees at that time if Commissioners insist on maintaining their hold on County Communications. Smith says there is no crisis and even though its shorthanded, there are enough people to cover the 911 Center. Smith says Commissioners are taking care of the situation in a proper manner. Following Thursday's executive session in which no decisions were made, the Commissioners have scheduled a public meeting for Monday morning at 9:00am to resolve the matter. The meeting will be held in the Commissioners’ meeting room at the Steuben County Community Center.
