With the financial bumps worked out, Upton and Hopedale are ramping up plans for a joint 911 emergency-response system. According to Blythe Robinson, Upton’s town manager, the regional dispatch agreement has been approved by the selectmen in both towns, and lawyers are drafting the final contract. “We have some equipment to be installed, and so does Hopedale,”  she said. “They plan to hire some dispatchers, and we need to check with the state about equipment installation. Right now, we hope to have the system in place and up by Jan. 1.” The final sticking point, an $18,000 payment from Hopedale to Upton to cover management and training costs, was approved last week by the Hopedale selectmen.
