County voters renew E-911 millagePublished 11:50pm Tuesday, August 5, 2014
Cass County voters have overwhelmingly agreed to renew the millage supporting the county’s emergency 911 service, according to unofficial results from the Cass County Clerk’s office.
The ballot proposal, which was presented to the entire county electorate across all 22 voting precincts, was passed by a vote of 2,783 to 1,277.
With its passage, the millage will be extended to the year 2017, with the money collected going toward covering operating costs of the county’s central emergency dispatch system. It’s expected to raise $376,822 in the first year.
The full text of the resolution is:
Shall the constitutional tax rate limitation in the County of Cass be renewed 1/5 mill ($.20) per thousand dollars against all taxable property in the County of Cass for a period of 4 years beginning with the December 1, 2014 levy and ending with the December 1, 2017 levy so as to provide funding for the operation of the “9-1-1” Central Dispatch? If approved and levied in its entirety on December 1, 2014, this millage would raise an estimated $376,822 in the first year.
