Vote expected on 911 nuisance ordinance

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The South Bend Common Council is expected to vote on an ordinance that aims to crack down on non-emergency calls to 9-1-1.

Supporters of the measure hope it will eventually eliminate this problem.

According to police, they spend time at certain locations leaving other areas of the city unattended.

If the bill passes, property owners will be fined $250 if police are called to that residence more than five times in 60 days.

The vote is expected to take place at Monday's Common Council meeting.
