Montgomery Narrowly Approves 911
Thursday, 18 March 2010

March 18--  The Montgomery County Commission narrowly approved a new 911 agreement with Toombs County Thursday,

The new agreement requires that Montgomery County pay ten percent of any cost overruns for the 911 service which is located at the Toombs County Sheriff's office and serves both counties.  Until now, Montgomery County paid no tax money but contributed telephone 911 user fees to help pay for the service. Officials estimate the new deal will cost Montgomery County about $1,900 a month with a year-end reconciliation to take care of any shortfall.

At a called meeting Thursday morning, commissioners Clarence Thomas and John Carpenter voted against the agreement while commissioners Vernon Sumner and Franklin Brantely voted for it.  Commission chairman Brandon Braddy cast the deciding voter in favor of the proposal.
