Background and Discussion:

 

GHC 9-1-1’s Board of Managers approved the 2022 Budget for GHC 9-1-1. As required under Chapter 772, Subchapter B, of the Texas Health and Safety Code GHC 9-1-1 is required to have both Harris County Commissioners Court and the City of Houston Council approve the annual operational and capital budget…GHC 9-1-1 is requesting that Harris County Commissioners Court approve the budget totaling $53,210,000 for the calendar year 2022.

 

GHC 9-1-1 works closely with the HCSO Communications Division and as in prior years, funding for 96 HCSO 9-1-1 call takers totaling $7,475,000 is included in the budget. HCSO is responsible for the supervision and management of the 9-1-1 call takers. GHC 9-1-1 reimburses Harris County for actual expenses and also provides the infrastructure/systems to deliver all 9-1-1 emergency calls to HCSO and all other similar call centers for the 49 cities within Harris and Fort Bend counties and unincorporated areas of Fort Bend County.

 

Funding for GHC 9-1-1 is based on collections of the 9-1-1 service fees from wireline and wireless telephone customers within the Harris and Fort Bend county area…the wireline fee is set by GHC 9-1-1’s Board of Managers, while the fee on wireless devices was set by the Texas State Legislature when the legislation was originally passed in 1997.
