The 911 radio system challenge has but to be outlined earlier than the communities are able to decide to native
Nobody necessarily rejected the Commissioner’s proposal, but questioned the need to accelerate the project on the timeline that at least the 911 Center Director and Actions Communications Representative Rick Derr and Motorola Representatives have been pushing.
Rexus, who had entered his position shortly before Richards’ retirement, has urged those involved in the communications center – Scottsbluff, Gering, Mitchell, Terrytown, Morrill, Minatare, Lyman, Melbeta, Henry, and McGrew – to commit to deadlines based on the project for funding agreements established by Motorola, the contractor for the project. Motorola has offered a financing package that includes 0% for two years and the costs of which are to be borne over a period of ten years. The company has also offered significant discounts that include the same discount offered on state bids plus an additional $ 1 million.
Several officials, including Scottsbluff Police Chief Kevin Spencer and Henry’s representative Dawn Bowen, asked several times who was involved in planning the infrastructure portion of the project. Finally, the answer came that ex-director Ray Richards, Rick Derr of Action Communications, and Motorola agents were the only ones involved in designing the piece of infrastructure.
The updates will be required within the next 5 to 10 years. The state is also moving towards implementing NEXTGen911, which would allow people to communicate with 911 centers through text messages, videos and pictures. Updates are required for this.
