Duxbury, Plympton to share dispatch center

The consolidation of emergency dispatch services on the South Shore took another step forward last week, as the new Duxbury Regional Emergency Communications Center agreed to handle “911” calls for the town of Plympton.

Under the five-year agreement, which was signed Monday by Duxbury selectmen, the state will pay Plympton’s $55,858 annual share, or 13 percent of the roughly $430,000-a-year operating budget. Meanwhile, Duxbury gets $159,956 for the first year of equipment upgrades to the center.
