911 Surcharge

Posted on 04 November 2010 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Boone County voters this week, approved a proposed rate increase in the Enhanced 9-1-1 surcharge. The surcharge is apparent on telephone bills and is currently $.85 a month. With the vote this week, that will go to $1.00 a month. All the proceeds are used for emergency communications in Boone County. That includes new radios for police and fire departments. Revenues have been declining because fewer people actually have land line telephones, instead opting for cell phones. Voters gave the measure a 51-percent approval Tuesday.
