HB 566 -- Marion County 911 Board

This bill establishes an Emergency Telephone Service 911 Board in Marion County. The board will implement a 911 system, supervise the system's maintenance and finances, and hire staff. The administrative control and management of the 911 service will rest entirely with the board. The board will elect a chairman, vice chairman, and a treasurer. The treasurer will enter into a surety bond paid for the board.

The 11 members of the board will be appointed by the governing body of the county. At least 6 of the members will represent public safety agencies; at least 9 of the members will be residents of Marion County or an adjoining county. Of the first board appointed, 5 members will serve for one year, 3 members will serve for 2 years, and 3 members will serve for 3 years. All future board members will serve 3 year terms. The members will receive no compensation for their services.

This bill also outlines the grounds and procedures by which a board member may be removed from office by a majority vote of the other board members.
