KITTCOM (KITTITAS COUNTY 911) <br />700 ELMVIEw ROAD <br />ELLENSBURG, WASHINGTON 98926 <br />509/925-8534 • FAx 509/925-8540 <br />A GENDA REPORT <br />SEPTEMBER 28, 2017 <br />TO: Board of County Commissioners <br />FROM: Darlene Mainwaring, Director, 925 -8530a& -".,w"---' <br />RE: E911 Agenda Item <br />ACTION: Consider E911 Contract for State FY2018 <br />#E 18-024 <br />BACKGROUND: By RCW, enhanced 911 services are a county obligation, <br />which Kittitas County delegated to KITTCOM. Two sources are used to fund the <br />mandate; a local $.70 per month per access line tax and grants from the State <br />Enhanced 911 Program Office for WAC eligible services and equipment not fully <br />funded by local E911 tax revenue. <br />The E9-1-1 Operations Contract has a slight decreased amount from the <br />previous year. The excise taxes for wireline and wireless continue to decrease <br />and the prepaid wireless & VolP do not increase enough to supplant the <br />difference. During FY17 as we purchased the Capital Equipment for the Next <br />Generation 9-1-1 phone system and the recorder, we included the maintenance <br />costs for the next few years which are deducted from our operations contracts, <br />however this approach provided cost savings going forward. <br />INTERACTION: Contract Amendment E18-024 for E911 operations is before the <br />Board for consideration. <br />RECOMMENDATION: Authorize the Board Chairman to sign the Enhanced 911 <br />contract with the Washington State Military Department. <br />HANDLING: Return two copies of the executed contract to the Military <br />Department along with a signature page. <br />ATTACHMENTS: A contract and signature page from the Washington State <br />Military Department. <br />
