WENATCHEE — Chelan County commissioners will host a public hearing Aug. 6 on a proposed rule change that would allow sheriff’s deputies to crack down on abusers of the region’s 911 system.

The meeting will happen at 11 a.m. in commission chambers, 400 Douglas St.

The rule change would make it a gross misdemeanor to make a nuisance call to 911. Gross misdemeanors are punishable by nearly a year in jail, a fine of up to $5,000, or both.
