CCCDA Funding

On August 7, 2012 the voters in Calhoun County rejected the 9-1-1 Surcharge
Funding Proposal by a margin of 63 votes.  Therefore, in accordance with the Calhoun County Emergency Telephone Service District Final Plan (Section VI – Fiscal Considerations, Subsection - Operational Funding; fourth paragraph) the CCCDA Governing Board of Directors will begin the process of implementing the Call for Service Fee formula.  This formula is what the municipalities declared to be the second most fair and equitable funding solution as a result of the municipal and public presentations conducted from June 2010 thru September 2011.


The alternative funding mechanism is a combination of the current $.60 local 9-1-1 surcharge and a formula which divides the revenue to be generated by previous “Calls for Service” by each municipality (City, Township, or Village).  Each City, Village, Township, and the County of Calhoun will receive a quarterly invoice from CCCDA for 25% of their annual dispatch service fee as determined by the Call for Service formula.  This fair and equitable funding mechanism will take effect July 1, 2013. 



The following documents provide guidelines for implementing the Call for Service Formula:
