The director of Baker County’s 9-1-1 Dispatch Center told county commissioners Wednesday that she believes proposed budget cuts would seriously harm the Center.

Hope Lindsey said she is frustrated with the budget process.

“The budget I got on April 25th is completely different than the budget I got after lunch today,” she said Wednesday. “There were cuts made to where I honestly feel like our Center cannot function.”

Lindsey tendered her resignation on Monday, effective May 15, a decision prompted by her accepting a job in Idaho rather than the budget situation.
