ALPENA -The current surcharge for the Alpena County 911 Center is set to expire, and if it isn't renewed during the Aug. 7 primary election, there could be changes made to the system, as well as a large drain on the county budget. The 911 center relies on a surcharge to maintain operations of the service in the county, and the revenue generated from the surcharge is needed to pay for building maintenance, equipment upgrades, and staff. The monthly surcharge is applied to landline, cell phones, wireless, and VOIP providers within the county and cannot exceed $3 a month.
