Tribal Council directs letter to people
To the People of Warm Springs,
Over the past few years, we
have considered the installation
of a 91 1 phone system that will
enable Warm Springs residents
to more quickly reach the police
department in case of emergen
cies. That new system will be a
reality in a few short months.
We will be able to participate in
the planning of the state-wide
program as well as retain and
manage our own system. Instead
of residents having to remember
a lot of different phone numbers,
callers with a 553 prefix will
only have to dial 9-1-1 and
immediately reach the Warm
Springs police department. The
proper law enforcement agency
will automatically be dispatched.
Available state funding will help
offset our expense of installing
Tribal Council has been review
ing the cost of our liability

jected this year.

recently completed his one-year
probation period and will conti

showing of community support,

Tribal Council listened to his
proposal but took no action.
Tribal Council recently
reviewed the third draft of
Chapter 362 which would provide
for the appointment of a
guardian or conservator for a
person who is not capable of
caring for himself or property.
Chapter 362 would set guidelines
as to just how it would be
determined that a person is in
need of a guardian or conserva
