This measure sought to double the 911 fee rate in the village in order to help pay for services offered by the dispatch center in the village as well as updating technology used by the center. The current rate is $.75 and if this measure had been approved the fee would have gone to $1.45 a month. Only land lines are charged this 911 service fee and about 40 percent of all 911 calls are made from a land line in the village. Cell phones are charged a separate fee, with only a portion of that going to the village.[2]

A similar measure was defeated in February.
