Emergency Telephone System Board
In 1989, the City of Calumet City deemed it in the best interest of the City to upgrade and maintain an Enhanced 9-1-1 emergency telephone system and to impose a surcharge on telecommunication carriers to be passed through to its subscribers to pay for the costs associated therewith. This was done through the passage of a referendum question to the voters of Calumet City.
The Emergency Telephone System Board is comprised of:
The Mayor of Calumet City or designee
The Police Department Chief or designee
The Fire Department Chief or designee
The Calumet City “9-1-1” Coordinator
The Calumet City Computer System Manager
The Calumet City Purchasing Director
The Board meets the first Wednesday of the month at 8:00am in the City Council Chambers at 204 Pulaski Rd.
