19. Motion to Adopt Resolution Updating and Authorizing 911 Charges on Telephone Services and Wireless Enhanced Services other than Prepaid Wireless Services
Strategic Priority
Good Government

This resolution updates the City's current 911 Other than Prepaid Wireless resolution to reflect substantially revised State statute. It applies to Savannah residents who receive telephone service or enhanced wireless service. The fee is $1.50 per month for each connection. This revenue helps fund 911 services within the City of Savannah.  

In accordance with revisions to State law, funds previously collected by the 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 January 1, 2019.
