Preliminary Financing Policy for Emergency Communications System Set by Fiscal Court

At the March 7, 2017 meeting of the Boone County Fiscal Court, the county’s elected body affirmed its support for a regional communications system to support the need of first responders and correct significant deficiencies in the current antiquated system. A majority of the Court approved a motion endorsing a 911 dwelling unit fee to fund the emergency communications system and the operation of the Public Safety Communications Center and to eliminate all other options. The Court directed staff to prepare a draft ordinance consistent with this direction.
