Information received from Genesee County 9-1-1 and posted on April 2, 2017:
The Genesee County Board of Commissioners voted and approved our request for a local 9-1-1 surcharge increase from $1.24 to $1.86 to be place on the May 2, 2017 ballot.
Q. What do we use Surcharge funding for?
Q. What is the Surcharge Increase Request?
Q. When was the original $1.24 surcharge set and by
Technology is EXPENSIVE! We are currently in need
of replacing all of our 800 MHz radios within every jurisdiction in
Genesee County are at as their are at the end their life cycle and no longer supported by
Motorola and at an estimated cost of $7,700,300.00 based on current
State of Michigan Bid Pricing.
IF we do nothing, and we still plan to replace the radios, but it will have to be done over a three-year period and those who are forced to wait until year two or three will have to limp along on equipment that is no longer supported by Motorola.
On Capitol Purchases; If this surcharge increase is
not successful, 9-1-1 can't pay for 100% of the capital needs of all the
members. We will need that money to fund operations.
We live in a culture that cannot be caught without 9-1-1- ready and able to respond to domestic or foreign threats against our citizens. Genesee County is the 5th largest county in the State of Michigan with population of 410,849, and a call volume of 522,173 calls for help in 2016.
Adjacent counties comparison – county surcharge rates.
The state average surcharge collection is $2.03 per device for counties that are only funded by the 9-1-1.
