Rankin County E911 Database/Project Manager
WHAT CAN 911 REVENUE
BE USED FOR?
• IF THE PROCEEDS GENERATED BY THE EMERGENCY
TELEPHONE SERVICE CHARGE EXCEEDS THE AMOUNT OF
MONIES NECESSARY TO FUND THE SERVICE, THE BOARD
OF SUPERVISORS MAY AUTHORIZE THE FOLLOWING
EXPENSES:
•
COSTS RELATING TO INDENTIFYING ROADS, HIGHWAYS &
STREETS
•
THE DEVELOPMENT OF COUNTY/DISTRICT COMMUNICATIONS
& PAGING SYSTEMS; WHEN USED PRIMARILY FOR THE
ALERTING AND DISPATCHING OF PUBLIC SAFETY ENTITIES.
•
ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS SUCH AS MANAGEMENT &
MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL & THE RELATED BUILDING &
OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS.
CARRIER COST RECOVERY…WHAT DOES
THIS DO FOR THE LOCAL 911 USER?
NOTHING EXCEPT HINDER YOUR COUNTIES ABILITY TO
MAINTAIN & PROVIDE THE SERVICE EXPECTED BY YOUR LOCAL
CITIZENS!
LET’S BREAK IT DOWN:
• APPROXIMATELY 30₵ OF EVERY DOLLAR PAID BY THE
TAXPAYER IS RETAINED BY THE MS CMRS BOARD FOR THE
CARRIERS.
• THIS FEE DOES NOT ENHANCE THE LOCAL 911 SYSTEM AND
IS BASICALLY A METHOD FOR THE CARRIERS TO MAINTAIN
& ENHANCE THEIR NETWORK AT THE COST OF THE TAX
PAYER.
• BY RE-DIRECTING AN ADDITIONAL .25 CENTS BACK TO THE
COUNTY LEVEL, THE COUNTIES WOULD REALIZE A
SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN FUNDING & WOULD PUT
WIRELESS SERVICE FEES MORE IN LINE WITH THE
TRADITIONAL LAND LINE FEES.

• To illustrate a path for obtaining
proficient and economical Multi
Jurisdictional Next Generation

PSAP
(Public Safety Answering Points)
Monetary restrictions have placed a need to end an
obsolete mindset in regards to PSAPS.
A true public servant searches for efficient ways to
provide outstanding safety not only to the general public
but to all emergency service personnel as well.
PRODUCTIVE AND EFFICIENT
What can be gained through cooperative efforts and
multi jurisdictional agreements:





Amplified interoperability
Decreased staffing demands
Enhanced redundancy in equipment
Reduction of equipment needs and costs
Improved proficiency within agencies

RECOMMENDATIONS PARTIALLY
BASED ON PEER REPORT #579
1. To control expenditures and improve efficiency, emergency
communications districts (ECD’S) should implement the
following:
• Where applicable, ECD’S with more than one PSAP should consolidate or colocate into one central PSAP.
• Where applicable, ECD’S should consolidate with neighboring ECD’S or enter
into interlocal agreements in return for a fee.
RECOMMENDATIONS CONTINUTED:
2. To improve expenditure controls and improve the
accountability of the 911 service delivery system, the Legislature
should revise the following:
•
Amend MS Code Ann. §19-5-307 to provide specific statutory guidance in
regard to how ECD’S may expend funds.
•
Require ECD’S operated by a board of supervisors to be included in the
county audit conducted by the Office of the State Auditor (MS Code Ann. §77-211 [3] [1972]. If the ECD is established as a separate fund entity with a
board of commissioners separate from the county audit, the ECD should
contract for an audit.
•
Expand the authority of the current CMRS board to establish a centralized
entity to oversee aspects of the implementation of the 911 service delivery
system in MS. Examples of this expanded authority should include the power
to enforce efficiency standards to ECD’s, the power to audit an ECD, and the
power to establish equipment procurement guidelines.
RECOMMENDATIONS CONTINUTED:
3. Contingent on ECD’s implementing efficiency improvements,
and should the Legislature consider additional funding for
ECD’s, the Legislature should consider the following to reduce
the disparity between revenues and expenditures:
• Amend MS Code Ann . §19-5-335 [1972] to redirect the portion of future
CMRS service charges currently allocated for the reimbursement of actual cost
incurred by the providers. Such funds should be reallocated to increase the 70%
disbursement of CMRS service charges to ECD’s to 100% disbursement for
those ECD’s that enjoin in the state plan.
• Amend MS Code Ann . §19-5-335 [1972] to redirect the portion of future
CMRS service charges currently allocated for the reimbursement of actual cost
incurred by the providers. Such funds should be reallocated to increase the 70%
disbursement of CMRS service charges to ECD’s to 95% disbursement for
those ECD’s that enjoin in the state plan.
RECOMMENDATIONS CONTINUTED:
4. To improve efficiency the Legislature should implement a
four (4) year repealer to ensure that the requirements and
standards are being met.
SUMMARY
CITIZENS OF THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI BELIEVE THE 911 FEES ARE PUT INTO
PLACE TO ENHANCE LOCAL 911 SYSTEMS AND SERVICES.
OPERATION QUARTER BACK ASKS FOR NO ADDITIONAL FUNDING FROM THE
TAXPAYERS. THESE MONIES ARE ALREADY BEING PAID BY THE TAXPAYER. THIS
PLAN MERELY REDUCES THE SUBSIDY PAID TO THE CARRIERS.
RESTRICTIONS OF POPULATION AND FUNDING SHOULD COMPEL OFFICIALS WHO
ARE CHARGED WITH MISSISSIPPI EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS TO DEVELOP
MULTI-JURISDICTIONAL AND INTEROPERABLE PSAPS THROUGHOUT THE STATE.
THIS PLAN WILL HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON EVERY 911 SYSTEM THROUGHOUT
THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI PROVIDING THE SERVICES THAT TAXPAYERS EXPECT
FOR THE FEES PLACED UPON THEM.
IT WILL ALLOW ALL COUNTIES AND JURISDICTIONS THE ABILITY TO ACHIEVE THE
TECHNOLOGY AND SERVICE THAT THEY MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO AFFORD AS A
STAND ALONE PSAP.
