Broward Commissioners are willing to wait a little longer to get a deal done with the Broward Sheriff's Office over the operation of the county's 911 system, but Commissioner Beam Furr has had just about enough. "I'm a pretty patient person, but I'd be honest, this is taking me right up to the edge."
The current operating agreement expired at the end of 2022, and the County Administrator believes a deal could be struck by March 31st, but she admits there are still about a dozen sticking points between the two sides.
The Commission unanimously agreed to set March 31st as the deadline for a signed term sheet.
If it's not signed, the Commission can begin to look for a new operator, and the BSO will stay on the job until a new one is found.
