Machias dispatchers suspended with pay

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Both employees of the Machias dispatch center have been suspended with pay effective July 15, according to Machias Town Manager Christina Therrien. After the suspension was enacted, all calls for Machias emergency services were rerouted to the Washington County Regional Communications Center which handles 911 traffic for the county, dispatching fire, ambulance and police calls.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is assisting the town with its investigation into what Therrien described as a personnel matter.
