Public hearing set June 8 on proposed increase for 911 fee

The Carroll County commissioners will hold a public hearing at 2:30 p.m. June 8 on a proposal for a 25-cent increase in the fee that telephone customers pay for 911 service.

The proposed change would bring the charge to 75 cents a month.

County public safety officials said the increase would help pay for rising costs associated with operating the county's 911 center, including improving and maintaining the system.

The public hearing is scheduled in Room 300A at the County Office Building, 225 N. Center St. in Westminster.
