Two County Commissioners Still at Odds Over Communications System

The idea of moving forward with an upgrade to Montgomery County’s Emergency Communication System is slowly getting the brush off after comments from one County Commissioner. Bruce Castor says municipalities are not stepping forward in mass to support the upgrade idea. According to Castor, only 56 percent of the 54 municipalities want to participate in the upgrade. The cost of a new system is one of the main causes for pause.  For the 48-million dollar proposal to get the green light, municipalities would have to cough up 17-million dollars. Just 20 municipalities have showed interest in participating in the new system. 10 jurisdictions have not warmed to the idea, while two other municipalities have not decided either way.   County Commission Joe Hoeffel is not ready to give-up on the idea to upgrade the communications system. Hoeffel says before a final decision is made in September, more can be done to move the process forward. Hoeffel  believes the results of a competitive bidding process may enable the county to reduce the estimated price tag of 48-millionn dollar.
