Flathead 911 Ballot Measure Fails After Re-count

911.

A vote re-count in Flathead County Friday resulted in a ballot measure failing by 10 votes.

The measure would have changed the funding stream for the county’s 911 operations center, adding a per-household fee in exchange for reducing contributions from Kalispell and Whitefish. County Administrator Mike Pence says local leaders are looking to the future.

"They definitely think we ought to put it back on the ballot. It would probably be at least a year and a half or two years from now," said Pence.

The original vote count had the measure losing by eleven votes, it picked up one more in the recount.
