For the past several years members <br />of these agencies have experienced problems with the system relating to <br />insufficient signal strength. A recent check of each of the eight tower/antenna <br />locations revealed some mechanical malfunctions that have been repaired. In <br />addition, there are two areas in the county where there is no signal to serve the <br />responders. <br /> <br />MidStates Wireless conducted a signal strength analysis of the system and <br />recommends adding two antennas and radio receivers to fill in the holes in <br />coverage. MidStates Wireless has provided a quote to provide two repeaters, two <br />antennas, and related equipment and installation for $9239. I believe this would <br />be a wise expenditure to repair a long standing problem. This project is not <br />within the scope of the Homeland Security Radio Upgrade project. <br /> <br />The personnel account for Emergency Management has realized some savings <br />and these funds can come from that account without negatively affecting the <br />budget. <br /> <br />Recommended Motion: I move to accept a budget adjustment of $9239. from <br />account # 101-3701-427.10-05 to account # 101-3701-427.74-04 to upgrade the <br />Cass County Rural Paging System. <br /> <br />Sincerely, <br />In A. AJ"L/ <br />Dave ~èss <br />Emergency Management Coordinator <br />
