  • Glenview JETSB (Glencoe, Kenilworth, Northfield, Winnetka) Consolidation Plan:


  • Motion was made by Ken Caudle and seconded by Linda Zerwin to recommend that the 9-1-1 Administrator approve the application for consolidation as submitted.  Motion carried by a unanimous vote by the Board.


  1. Legislative Update


The Chairman indicated that there has been no movement on the 9-1-1 legislation (HB1984/SB985).  HB1811 SA1 & 2 which contained exemptions from consolidation for Rosemont and Deerfield were not called for a vote.  There was also no movement on HB2967, which includes a $1.35 surcharge for Northern Illinois, and HB2608, a continuing appropriation bill.


  1. Fiscal Update


The Board was presented with a summary of the Statewide 9-1-1 Bureau’s spending for FY17 through 4/30/17 and projected spending for all of FY17.  Karl Pound indicated that the main distribution checks for January were cut by the Comptroller on 5/15.  The distribution for counties under 100,000 were cut by the Comptroller on 5/18.  March network bills are going to Shared Services by the end of the week.  There is a reduction from $1.2 million to $580,000 per month as the amount held for grants decreased due to less than anticipated dollars requested by grantees. 


  1. Administrator Update


  • 2016 AR911 Reports – 5 reports are still outstanding.  92% of Annual Reports are in for 2017.  Sixteen 911 authorities have not reported to date.
  • 2017 Consolidation Grants – Notice of State Award is next in the process.  Awards in June.
  • Text to 911 – Mission Critical Partners has been contacted regarding statewide deployment opportunities for text to 911.
  • NG911 Project – Mission Critical Partners has met with service providers and the Commerce Commission.


  1. Old Business


Larry Deetjen requested that Karl Pound include the prior fiscal year with the spending for the current fiscal year.  Karl indicated that it would only show 6 months for FY16.  Ralph Caldwell recommended that the topic of unmanned backups be reviewed by the Board as costs are covered for some 911 systems, but not for others.


  1. New Business


The Board presented Jana Fear with a plaque recognizing her service with the Board and as an advocate for 911 statewide.


  1. Public Comment





The meeting was adjourned at 10:56 AM on a motion by Jana Fear and a second by Linda Zerwin.
