Letter to the Editor

To the EDN:

Thank you very much for your support in passing the E911 Surcharge increase. This is just another example of how Emmet County cares and supports its emergency responders. With the passing of the surcharge increase this will help fund some very necessary improvements on receiving the 911 call, dispatching the needed emergency equipment and tracking where the call is coming from. This is another example of the user paying the way and saving Emmet County tax dollars. We will continue to search for grants and other funds to complete our upgrade, along with the cooperative effort of Emmet County Board of Supervisors, the City of Estherville and the Emmet County E911 Service Board. Thank you very much.
