BROOKVILLE â€” Michael McNulty, a consultant who reviews the countyâ€™s 911 system and advises funding, recently reported that the countyâ€™s justification of wireline surcharges was approved.
The plan will be good for the next three years, he said. Each resident with a land-based telephone line pays $1.50 per month, and that money is used to upgrade and maintain the 911 phone system in the county.
McNulty said the plan was reviewed and approved by the Pennsylvania Utility Commission (PUC).
