Emergency 911 Board discusses funding options
Tuesday, April 17, 2012
At the regular monthly meeting of the Moniteau County 911 Emergency Dispatch Board of Directors on Thursday, April 12, the matter of money needs for the center was discussed.
The sales tax rate currently collected was approved by the voters on Aug. 24, 1994, and has not been changed. The funds collected are becoming inadequate to keep up with the needs of the center.
Among other options being considering is the possibility of a small increase in the sales tax being put on an upcoming ballot as an election issue.
Administrator Corey Sullivan reported the problem to the board.
