ELKO, Nev. (AP) - An Elko County committee tasked with planning how the county can launch an enhanced 911 system has approved its master plan.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports (https://bit.ly/2n9p0rH ) that the Elko County Enhanced 911 Board approved its five-year master plan on Thursday, just one day after exceeding its $200,000 fundraising goal.

The master plan still needs approval from the County Commission.

The county is planning to upgrade its 911 system over the course of five years. The $200,000 will go toward start-up costs before the county begins collecting a surcharge on phone bills. The commissioners already approved the surcharge is September.
