Board approves new radio equipment

NATCHEZ — The Adams County Board of Supervisors approved Thursday a $279,000 contract to purchase new E-911 radio equipment for the county.

The equipment will replace the current system, which Civil Defense Director Stan Owens said will no longer be serviceable after the end of the year.

“They will no longer support the hardware, so we will not be able to get replacement parts if we need them,” Owens said.

The contract was awarded to Comsouth by the E-911 board and ratified by the board of supervisors.

The county has another system that it can borrow parts from, Owens said, but replacing the equipment, which was put into service in 2002, is inevitable.

The supervisors authorized County Administrator Joe Murray to request bids from banks to finance the $279,000 contract.
