New Grady phones go on-line

CAIRO, GA (WALB) - Grady County will soon have a new phone system installed. After nearly two years of researching and evaluating an upgrade, county commissioners approved purchasing new Voice Over Internet Protocol equipment.

The county accepted a bid for $38,000 from Odum communications in Thomasville, which was much less expensive than other vendors.

"The vendors gave us a Ferrari model and a GMC model, and we want the GMC model. It has all the same technology it just isn't a name brand. Again, this is Grady County and we're known for our frugality and we're not into name brands," said Grady Co. Administrator Carlos Tobar.

The phones will be installed next week in the Sheriff's office and tax commissioner's office.
