Macomb County Michigan Rejects 9-1-1 Fee

Macomb County Commissioners in North Carolina rejected a proposal to add an additional $0.42 per month to citizens phone lines. The proposed fee would have been used to improve 9-1-1 services through the county.

A cited reason for rejecting the proposed fee was that the funding for next year’s dispatch needs have been allocated for within the County’s budget. Also, it was though that the county’s emergency dispatch center already has the most advanced 9-1-1 technology available. However, for some commissioners, it was felt that the proposal should be placed before the voters to decide.
