Topic: 

A Resolution to Authorize Improvements to the Public Safety Radio System

Topic Description:

The Public Safety Committee renewed the report of CTA Communications to improve radio coverage in the New Baltimore area.  The consultant reviewed a number of alternatives to determine the most effective means of improving coverage without compromising operations of Public Safety personnel. The committee concurred with the recommendation of the consultant that the preferred option is to add a new transmission site and related equipment and to utilize the existing antenna at Vint Hill if possible.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

The estimated cost of the new site is $1,500,000. This will be considered as part of Fiscal Year 2008 budget process. Due to the planned opening of two new schools in this area and the planned changes by the vendor of equipment in the future, this project is a priority.
