Commissioner Ron Wells made the motion to sign the approximately $10 million radio upgrade. The base cost for covers $5 million of the agreement with the remaining being paid for over 15 years. Chairman Marvin Rodriguez gave his thanks for all those involved in the process.
“This was not an easy thing and I think it’s a big step for us and I think it will give us what we need in the county,” said Rodriguez, “You can’t put a price on life and this I think is going to solve our problems.”
