E-911 phone system to get major overhaul
Hubbard County's E-911 system is a step above a tin can telephone.
It's a 10-year-old computer running Windows 95.

Wednesday the Hubbard County Board of Commissioners voted to spend nearly $132,000 to overhaul the system.
"At some point soon they will not be supplying parts to fix it," said E-911 administrator Sherri Klasen.
