Starting Jan. 4, all 911 calls from Rice Lake will be directed to the Barron County Dispatch Center.
Rice Lake is shutting down their dispatch mainly due to a tight budget, rising costs, and a new county dispatch center.
Officials say this will have no affect on response times or public service.
The Rice Lake Police Chief says this should save the city about $150,000 a year.
Rice Lake is the last city in Barron County to consolidate with the county dispatch center.
