The Allen County Commissioners Friday approved an agreement that will reduce the county's share of the expense of the joint emergency communications department it created with the city in 2010.

The original deal called for the county to pay 30 percent of the department's budget and the city the remaining 70 percent. But among other things the amendment – which will also require City Council approval – will change the ration to 20 percent county and 80 percent city. The split will be reviewed and if necessary changed annually on the basis of where 911 calls originate.

The department's current budget is about $6.9 million, much of it from 911 fees paid by telephone customers.
