Local Resolution Calls for County To Upgrade Communication System
While Montgomery County officials consider updating the county’s public safety communication system, one borough likes the idea. North Wales Borough recently passed a resolution to encourage the county to move forward with upgrading the county’s emergency communication system. The cost of the plan, if lawmakers ever agree to install a newer system, would cost the county 48-million dollars. Some elected officials believe the system can be constructed for less than the estimated price. North Wales Solicitor, Greg Gifford says the county should make the move and get it right the first time, should it become a reality. The North Wales Resolution also asks State Lawmakers to get involved by assessing a 9-1-1 fee to cell phones.
