Why a telephone surcharge?
• It is a fair and equitable way to share costs of maintaining the 9-1-1 operations by everyone within Clinton County.
• By law, the money collected via the 9-1-1 surcharge can only be used to fund the 9-1-1 Center for operations and equipment.
• The funds are used for the day to day operations, personnel, on-going maintenance and equipment replacement and upgrades.
