The August remittance to counties under 100,000 was sent out during the week of Feb. 15.  September surcharge remittance for wireless 911 systems will be sent out by the end of the week of Feb. 22.

• Network costs

January network bills have totaled up to approximately $10.4 million as compared to the original $9.8 million originally estimated during creation of the legislation.

7)  Consolidations/Waivers

Fayette County has applied for a consolidation waiver.  The Department’s review is due to the Board on or before March 9.  The Department will also be sending out a list of anticipated consolidations to all 911 authorities.

Consolidation and Waiver forms have been revised and will be posted on the ISP website by the end of the week of Feb. 22.  A revised grant form was presented to the Board for review.

8) Consultant RFP

The Chairman announced that the RFP cannot be discussed in an open meeting or emailed to the Board members.  Therefore, three RFPs from other states were given to the Board to review.  Board members should identify items they would like to see in the RFP for Illinois and the Department will prepare the final RFP. 

9) Old Business

The question was posed as to whether there should be some sort of public announcement regarding the discontinuance of call boxes.  The Board agreed that it would only cause confusion.

Representatives from Madison and St. Clair Counties expressed their opinions to the Board regarding payment of network charges for fiber that might support services not related specifically to 911.  The dispute process was discussed at this time.


The meeting was adjourned at 4:24 P.M. on a motion by Linda Zerwin and a second by Glenna Johnson.
