GeoComm Advises Iowa County on Communications (12/18)
Monday, January 01, 2007 | Comments
GeoComm is working with Pottawattamie County, Iowa, to alleviate its interoperability communications problems. The Pottawattamie County board of supervisors recently approved nearly $250,000 in spending to advance a 9-1-1 communications center project, which includes an updated 800 MHz radio system. The board is currently moving forward on a $24.5 million project to upgrade the county system to 800 MHz and build a new communications center. The board has applied for a $10 million grant from the Iowa West Foundation, secured $3.5 million from a federal grant, and will spend more than $1 million from the county general fund. The county's radio system will be a subnet of the Douglas County, Neb., system, with which GeoComm also assisted. The contract with Pottawattamie County is to see the radio project through the procurement and implementation phases.
