Ionia County 911 is the only emergency 911 answering point in Ionia County and the only dispatch service for police, fire, medical first responder and ambulance service. Equipment, systems and technology to provide a 911 service is very costly to implement, maintain and operate.
The surcharge pays for the operation of Ionia County 911 (including all personnel costs, utilities, computers and servers, rent, equipment maintenance/support, insurances, telephone services, equipment updates/replacement etc.), new technology and state-of-the-art service to our residents such as Smart911, TEXT to 911 and the latest technology to accurately locate a 911 cell phone caller.
The proposed surcharge increase would begin July 1, 2021.
Paid for with unrestricted funds by the Citizens for Ionia County 911, P.O. Box 196, Ionia MI 48846
