Chat with Times columnists Rich James and Marc Chase on the competing plans for consolidating emergency dispatch services in Lake County. Both will be on a web chat at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

It promises to be a lively conversation.

"With all 17 Lake County communities linked together on the same system, there will be better communications and, in the long run, a financial savings," James said.

Chase disagrees. "E-911 is turning into good government gone bad in Lake County," he said. "The idea of consolidating could be beneficial and more cost effective for county taxpayers – but not the way it’s being handled right now."
