The proposal for telephone landline E-911 services in the areas of the county without the services will go to the vote of the people at the November 7 election to determine if they will approve a ten percent (10%) tax increase to fund the services. (Note: The City of Shawnee will not vote on this referendum since it has the services in place. The City Commission took action at a previous meeting to not take this question to the vote of the people since it would increase the current three percent (3%) tax to ten percent (10%) tax on the existing services. The City of Shawnee citizens will be voting on a referendum on November 7 to approve a 50-cent tax for E-911 services for cell phones)
