Public Safety Radio Project Millage
Clinton County voters, in the March 10, 2020 election, approved a millage in the amount of .85 mills for 9-1-1 center operations and the local voter approved surcharge will be reduced to no more than $1.50 for the radio system infrastructure. The estimated capital cost for Clinton County to transition to the MPSCS Radio System is roughly $8 million. The local surcharge, currently at $2.75, will decrease to $1.50 per month in July 2020 or $18.00 per year per device and cover capital costs. The millage of .85 mills will generate approximately $2.5 million annually to fund the 911 Center Operations. The new millage amount will go into effect December 2020.
