Michael Arnold is the new director of the Ralls County 9-1-1 Center at New London.

Arnold’s hiring was announced Monday evening. He’s spent the last eight years as director of the Miller County 9-1-1 Center in mid-Missouri. He’ll start his new duties in a couple weeks.

Ralls County 9-1-1 board members also voted to extend the agreement with Marion County for dispatch services for another month to ease the transition.
