September 27, 2018, City Council Regular Meeting
18. Motion to Adopt Resolution Updating and Authorizing 911 Charges on Prepaid Wireless Services
Strategic Priority
Good Government

This resolution updates the City's current 911 Prepaid Wireless resolution to reflect substantially revised State statute.  The resolution authorizes the collection of $1.50 per prepaid wireless retail transaction within the City of Savannah. Funds can only be used to offset costs of 911 service.

In accordance with revisions to State law, funds previously collected by City of Savannah for 911 emergency services will now be collected by the State of Georgia Department of Revenue, as the contracted collection partner of the Georgia Emergency Communications Authority.  This resolution will become effective on January 1, 2019.
