I'm a little confused on the 24 hour Emergency Services. Does that mean 911 won't work or will it?
Bad Dawg 2/13/2014 10:52:39 AM Report

911 will work..... public works emergencies I believe

phatbear... I believe they are referring to Board of Works-type of emergencies -- flooded roads, trees down, etc.

So much for anyone but gov't and city workers getting a paid day off.
