Beltrami County Commissioners Amend 9-1-1 Funding Agreement

The Beltrami County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday, adopted a new version of an ordinance funding emergency communications. The new ordinance expands options for appropriating 911 technology funds. The old ordinance it replaced, limited the county’s special assessment fund to be used on towers, repeaters and equipment within the 911 center. Now, money can be used to provide maintenance and upgrades to the entire emergency communications infrastructure.
