New County Radio System Could be Costly

(TNS) - The Saline County, Kan., Commission Tuesday approved the purchase of hardware to enhance the 911 system.

Computer Technology Director Brad Bowers said the software from Tyler Technologies will cost $31,435, with the city of Salina paying half of that cost.

Commissioners then heard from Emergency Management Director Hannah Stambaugh that the 911 radio equipment might have to be upgraded.

Stambaugh said other counties that have upgraded from analog UHS to 800 HMz radio communication systems have spent up to $11 million.

"It has the potential of having a pretty hefty price," she said, but it could be good for public safety.
