WORK SESSION. The Board of Supervisors discussed potential funding for replacement of the E911 Board’s Public Safety Software that is 30+ years old. County Sheriff Tony Thompson said that currently there is a hodgepodge of systems that is imperfectly interfaced and over capacity. He said an estimate for a new, integrated system serving law enforcement entities throughout the county is between two and three million dollars, and while the E911 Board can pay most of the amount in debt service payments on a bond issue, it likely cannot pay on more than a $3 million bond. Since the E911 board doesn’t have taxing authority, it would rely on the county to issue the bonds and then pay on the debt, as it did with their current radios. Finance Director Susan Deaton said that the E911 radio bond was paid off in FY18, and no debt service payment was budgeted for FY19. Thompson said that when those radios were purchased they received a $1 million grant from the Gaming Commission, but although he hopes it will support another grant, it traditionally does not support requests for software. Deaton said the E911 budget is expected to have a balance of about $300,000 at the end of FY19. Magsamen asked why there is a reduction in the E911 board ability to pay. Thompson said 911 surcharge funds continue to dwindle, because even though wireless phones now pay the same surcharge as wired phones, there is a steady reduction in the use of wired phones. He said he expects to have three to five serious bidders on the system, and if the request for proposal goes out in January, data conversion and other preliminary steps should be able to start in July. Deaton said that the public safety radio system bonds will be paid off in mid-2020. She said that the county’s financial advisers brought up the possibility that the county could make a loan to E911 from reserves, which could be repaid with interest. Thompson said that there are a number of options, and he just wanted to start a preliminary conversation before budget time.
ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD. Schwartz said there would be a vigil that evening at 7:30 at the Sons of Jacob Synagogue in remembrance of the eleven people murdered at a synagogue in Pittsburgh on October 28. Magsamen wished White a happy birthday.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
