OGDENSBURG — The city’s three-part plan to transfer emergency dispatch services to St. Lawrence County may be coming to a halt as the county’s emergency dispatching services cannot safely assume the additional call volume.

Ogdensburg had plans to transition all emergency dispatch services between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. to the county starting Sept. 26. By Dec. 31, the city planned to transition all emergency dispatching services to the county.
