Danvers, however, needs to upgrade its police station’s communications center, and a recent study recommends a $4.5 million to $6.5 million addition to the station, depending on which of three options the town might choose.
Selectmen Chairman Gardner Trask said the board should reconsider joining the regional center. In comparison to the study’s findings, joining the regional center would cost the town $430,000 a year.
Still, Trask said he does not want any Danvers civilian dispatchers to lose their jobs if the town joins the regional dispatch center.
“I just want to have the discussion,” Trask said.
