County making progress on communications system

October 04, 2006|by TARA REILLY

Washington County Public Works Director Gary Rohrer said Tuesday the county is making progress on the new $19.3 million public safety communications system.

The county has been meeting with Motorola, which is installing the system, to work out the contract design. Eight more meetings are scheduled this month.

A final meeting is planned for Nov. 1, Rohrer said.

Included in the project are three towers - a 330-foot tower at the county's Elliott Parkway building, another tower on Town of Hancock property at the Interstate 70 and Interstate 68 interchange, and a 185-foot tower on Keep Tryst Road in the southern part of the county.

Rohrer said he didn't think the towers at the Elliott Parkway or Hancock sites would cause controversy, but that the Keep Tryst Road site might raise concerns.
