METRONET

Mike Crabb, Business Enterprise Sales, spoke about the voice and data telephone system that was presented at the June 19 meeting. At that meeting, he proposed to replace the telephone systems at the Courthouse, Jail, and Annex along with the installation of fiber internet, for $7,000/month. There will be no deposits or start-up costs required.

 

Mr. Crabb encouraged the commissioners to move ahead with the quote because there is a 90 day waiting period before any work is started on their end and that will put them in November to lay fiber.

 

Attorney Loy asked if there was a proposed contract. Mr. Crabb said that there isn’t a proposed contract, but he will develop a “scope of work” that details what the project includes. After it’s approved by the IT Department, he will turn it over to the county attorney.

 

Mr. Crabb will put the “scope of work” proposal together and email it to the commissioners’ secretary.

 

AREA PLAN – ROAD NAME CHANGE

After further review of the White County Zoning Ordinance, the commissioners requested the name change of Clark Street at the White County Fair Grounds be referred to the Reynolds Town Board for approval.

 

There being no further business to come before the board, the commissioners adjourned their meeting.
