LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee County officials are looking to possibly upgrade their communications systems.

Tuesday, they held a special called meeting about upgrades to their EMS radio systems.
They now share a system with Albany and Thomasville and need to upgrade their software.
Commissioners are now working to decide if they can afford the upgrade with Motorola to give them a slightly stronger signal.

"There won't be a significant change in functionality,” said Rick Muggridge, Lee County Chairman. “We'll just gain a much greater reliability. We'll retain the technical support that we've enjoyed for the last several years.”

The estimated cost of the upgrades is more than 1-milllion dollars.
No word on when commissioners will vote on the decision.
