    Tracy Residents Now Have To Pay For 911 Calls

    Tracy Residents Now Have To Pay For 911 Calls - cbs13.com

    Tracy residents will now have to pay every time they call 9-1-1 for a medical emergency.

    But there are a couple of options. Residents can pay a $48 voluntary fee for the year which allows them to call 9-1-1 as many times as necessary.

    Or, there's the option of not signing up for the annual fee. Instead, they will be charged $300 if they make a call for help.
    This is terrible. I foresee this situation: Someone gets in a wreck or has a medical emergency on a sidewalk somewhere and this has the potential to cause someone to think twice about calling 911 to help.

    There are no words for the stupidity of something like this.

    Great idea.

    I'd opt for the $300 per call because the likely hood of calling it is low.

    Is it wrong to be slightly amused by this?

    It would be hilarious is the guy who made this bill got into a car accident, and nobody called 911 because they didn't want to pay the $300.

    Don't they already pay taxes for this?

    Why the extra fees?

    Because government stupidity on all levels knows no bounds.

    We truly have the government we deserve.

    What is so wrong with this?

    You can pay the yearly tax and be fully covered?

    The people of this once thriving Community are mostly power middle class and below and the leadership is foolish.

    This is another indication of how bad things are across the State. I lived in this town in the 702 1nd early 80s and it was once a nice place to live and raise a family but those days are long gone.

    I do wonder where all the tax money goes, but then I always wondered that. There has always been a drug problem and a ghetto in what is called the South side, just south of the Rail Road Tracks almost like on old country song. That area is almost all minorities. It's a sad truth.

    I think they should recall everyone from city Government, and replace them with people who will address the real problems of unions, they don't belong in government
