Fiscal Court holds first reading for 911 funding ordinance

-A A +A

Would shift funding to real property fee

By Glen Jennings

 Shelby County Fiscal Court introduced an ordinance that would alter the way the county collects 911 fees.

The ordinance, introduced and given first reading at Thursday’s regular fiscal court meeting, would repeal the county’s previous ordinance which established landlines as the primary means through which the county collected fees to fund 911 and shift them to an annual $48 fee on each parcel of real property in Shelby County.

The ordinance text states that the fee was originally instated in Ordinance 94-01, but has now become outdated.
