People often call 911 about very difficult or uncomfortable situations. Even if the answer is difficult or embarrassing, it is important never to lie to the Telecommunicator. It is a crime to knowingly and intentionally give false information to the police, and misrepresenting the facts about a situation might put those who are coming to help in danger.
If you have a mobile phone with “emergency dial” features be sure to lock your keypad, or otherwise prevent accidental “pocket dialing” that can result in multiple accidental calls to 911.

Residential Customers: All residential customers are charged for an average of 2,588 square feet (sq. ft.) of impervious surfaces (1 equivalent residential unit or ERU). The residential charge for 1 ERU is $4 per month.
Commercial Customers: The impervious surfaces for each property in the City are measured using aerial photography and geographical information systems technology. The amount of impervious surfaces is divided by the equivalent residential unit (ERU) of 2,588 square feet and multiplied by $4 per month.
