FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo voters might be asked to approve a 50-cent increase in the monthly 911 fee assessed to their phone bills.

The fee is currently $1, which goes to fund the Red River Regional Dispatch Center. City finance director Kent Costin (CAW’-sten) says increased operational costs and the loss of landline phone fees will leave the center with a $630,000 deficit this year.

KFGO radio reports that a decision will have to be made by early September to get the question on the November ballot.
