FRAMINGHAM A proposal for a joint regional dispatch center that will handle 911 calls for Framingham and Natick has been approved by the Framingham City Council.

“For a number of years, Framingham has been talking about creating a new, joint-dispatch center,” Sisitsky said. “Currently, we have dual dispatch centers, operating out of the Route 9 fire station and police station. Both of those sites are functionally obsolete, require very expensive upgrades and there just isn’t enough room in those buildings for them to operate properly.”
