TRUMBULL COUNTY 911 center will get upgrade
The county will also auction goods and decide when to vacate roads.
WARREN -- Trumbull County will use $432,838 in federal homeland security money to make communications improvements at the 911 center in Howland.
The center's director, Tim Gladis, explained to commissioners at their work session Tuesday that $432,838 is the total amount awarded the county in 2004.
Staley Communications, 7891 Southern Blvd., Boardman, will provide improvements to the police and fire radio systems.
Today, commissioners were expected to approve a one-year contract with LightGov LLC., 860 Boardman-Canfield Road, suite 204, Boardman, for Internet auctioning of unused county goods.
The county will pay LightGov $1,000 per year for use of the Online Surplus Property Network and the eProcurement System; LightGov also will receive a 6 percent commission on all surplus sales revenue.
The commissioners also are expected to set a date and time for a public hearing on vacating six roads at the Brookfield Township site of the closed county nursing home.
The county does not want to continue maintaining these roads in the event the county sells the land.
They also will reappoint Atty. Daniel B. Letson and the Rev. Alton L. Merrell Sr. to one-year terms on the Trumbull County Children Services Board.
