News & Events

911 service adds texting

Kenosha County Joint Services just announced that cell phone users in the county will now be able to text 911. The new service will be beneficial to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. 

When using the service, officials ask that you include your location (full address if possible) as dispatch is not able to pinpoint your exact location, and the nature of your emergency.

There is no guarantee that your text message will be delivered as intended. If it was transmitted successfully, the sender should receive an automated return message confirming delivery. 

Tax Audit released

When the village of Somers adopted its 2019 budget, it needed to fund additional first responder services. The board approved the increase to the budget to be paid through increase revenue from new construction. That would have resulted in additional services with no increase in taxes to residents.
