MECC Regional Council of Governments To Meet March 23 in Violet Township

GAHANNA, Ohio – The Metropolitan Emergency Communications Consortium (MECC) Regional Council of Governments (RCOG) will meet next Wednesday, March 23 at 1 p.m. at the Violet Township offices, 12970 Rustic Drive in Pickerington, Ohio.

The RCOG is a form of government available under Ohio Revised Code. Founding members of the MECC RCOG represent Mifflin, Truro, Violet, Jefferson and Plain Townships. Last summer, the boards of trustees of the consortium voted to formalize their governance structure and to transition into a council of governments. This change opened the door for shared projects and services. Participating agencies anticipate that the RCOG will generate a cost savings for those entities involved. Members will be able to save on everything from supplies and training, to uniform and health care costs through their collective buying power.

Delegates appointed to the RCOG governing board include Trustee Lynn Stewart, Mifflin Township; Trustee Pat Mahaffey, Truro Township; Director of Operations John Eisel, Violet Township; Trustee Rich Courter, Jefferson Township; and Trustee David Olmstead, Plain Township.
