Further complexities in the 911 funding negotiations between the cities and counties of Van Buren County became apparent with the review of a Mutual Aid agreement, signed Dec. 31, 2001 and entered into county records Jan. 3, 2002, which includes:

"2. A fair share of 911 will be contributed as set forth in ACA 12-10-305 amd 12-10-323 by the Van Buren County 911 fund to the City of Fairfield Bay for operating the 911 public safety communications center." 

The document shows the agreement between Fairfield Bay and Van Buren County only with no mention of the City of Clinton. 

The Van Buren County Democrat continues to follow this story.
