MOUNT VERNON — The 911 consolidation project is expected to come in over estimates presented when the Knox County Board of Commissioners asked for approval from townships, villages and the city of Mount Vernon in 2013.

Knox County 911 Coordinator Richard Dzik told City Council Monday night the current project is coming in at $467,043.10.

“On July 11, 2012, the projected costs were estimated at $377,575 for required upgrades and $145,250 for possible additional or future upgrades,” Dzik said. “By Aug. 31, 2012, when we applied for state loan funds, we set the project budget at $405,000 to ensure our ability to obtain $350,000 in total loan funds.”
