Grady County working to improve E911 tower reliability
GRADY COUNTY, GA (WALB) -
Grady County's E911 tower needs a good cleaning.
County commissioners voted to spend $12,000 to spruce up the tower to improve the reliability of communication. They also plan to relocate the paging antenna to improve coverage in the Beechton area.
“The most important part is to improve the paging system for the volunteer fire department, to get better coverage on the south east side of Grady County, that is the most important part, because it improves public safety,” said county administrator Carlos Tobar.
County leaders say the project will help reduce overall operating costs. Originally the county was using two buildings to house the generators and wires associated with the tower now they will only use one eliminating a hefty bill.
