Henderson passes first reading to add 911 fee to water bills

HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - Henderson County’s Fiscal court voted Tuesday morning to pass the first reading of an ordinance that would add a 911 fee to Henderson County Water Bills.

The fee is $3.25.

County officials say the final vote will be at their next meeting on Aug. 27.

Right now, the fee is on landlines, but with fewer people having home phones, Judge-executive Brad Schneider says it has hurt the amount collected from the fees.
