Commission to consider raising
9-1-1 fees

Braxton County 9-1-1 Director Mike Baker was one of the first to appear before the Braxton County Commission at their regular meeting last Friday, February 6. Baker requested that the Commission raise the 9-1-1 fee charged telephone land lines.
Baker told the Commission that the payroll expenses had increased by $145,761.33 between 2010 and 2014 due to a state mandate that requires two dispatchers on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. He said that during the same period land telephone lines, which are currently charged a $2.10 per month 9-1-1 fee, have decreased from 5,912 to 5,233 which equates to a $17,107.45 decrease in revenue.
