The Kennewick City Council on Tuesday unanimously voted to approve an interlocal agreement dealing with regionalization of emergency communications in the Tri-Cities.
The agreement is among Benton and Franklin counties and the cities of Kennewick, Pasco and Richland.
Under the pact, a consultant will be hired using a state grant to create a plan to form a regional emergency communications system in Benton and Franklin counties.
The pact doesn't guarantee regionalization; a final decision will come once the plan lays out details.
Never miss a local story.
Benton County commissioners and the Pasco and Richland city councils also have approved the agreement. Franklin County commissioners are scheduled to discuss it Wednesday.
