The Belmont County ballot this November will include a tax levy intended to upgrade and replace many parts of the county's 911 system.
The levy is for an additional one mill and would last five years.
911 Supervisor Doyle Crooks says the current 911 radio system is old.
Crooks says many of the hand held radios the police officers carry have broken and are so outdated that they are completely un-repairable.
He also says there are parts of the radio tower that need attention.
Crooks says this levy passing is extremely important for the safety of all Belmont County residents.
