Geneva Co. Phone Rates Going Up

Geneva County residents phone bill is about to go up.

The increase of a dollar a month relates to 911 expenses.

The Geneva County E-911 board recently voted to raise the monthly rate from 2 dollars to 3 dollars.

The increase is to cover remaining costs on the E-911 operations center.

Geneva county commissioners aren't happy about the increase.

They're asking the 911 director to make sure the rate hike is necessary and legal before it is implemented.
