Staff Lead:


Anthony I. Hooper, Deputy County Administrator

County Administration


A Resolution Authorizing the County Administrator to Execute a Memorandum of Understanding Between Fauquier County and Commonwealth Link to Interoperable Communications (COMLINC)


Topic Description:

This agreement will provide access to COMLINC that allows the use of the internet for radio communications with the State or other localities.  It will extend Fauquier County’s range to communicate with the Department of Virginia State Police and other agencies such as the National Guard beyond what is now available.  It provides another way to link up to adjoining counties that are not on an 800 Mghz radio system or with other localities on the 800 Mghz band that are out-of-range of our system. 


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

There is no cost to the County for the equipment to be utilized to allow this communication link, but Fauquier County will be providing access to our communication equipment and facilities to support this interoperability enhancement.


Identify any other Departments, Organizations or Individuals that would be affected by this request:

Warrenton-Fauquier Joint Communications Center
