After crunching the numbers, Allen County 911 Communications Director Angela Murphy estimates it would cost the county about $167,000 annually to absorb the City of Chanute into its emergency system. 

Murphy suggested three more employees would be needed, which would entail additional licensing fees. 

Chanute currently pays $180,000 for 911 services through Neosho County, but has been unhappy with the results, which have not improved despite 3%-5% percent fee increases, according to Murphy.
