911 board has special-called meeting

GLASGOW — The 911 Governing Board approved the cost of new pager tones and a renewal of a software program contract Tuesday during a special-called meeting.

The board called a special meeting in order to meet its deadline to decide whether it would renew its annual contract with Codespear, the emergency notification system software that the Barren and Metcalfe 911 centers use to send out warnings to local residents in the case of any type of emergency. The Codespear contract is $19,334 per year base rate, 911 Director Beverly Harbison told the board. Discounts are offered based on longer contracts.

“I personally think we should stick with the one year,” Harbison told the board when she reviewed the contract information. “Six months from now, there may be more things out there than what we’ve got.”

The board decided a discount would be worth the extra commitment. If paid up front, the 911 board will get a 12 percent for two years discount off the contract price. Gary Fancher, Regional Response Manager for Kentucky Emergency Management, said the system has been used a lot in several of his counties, and they have been happy with it.

“We’ve been really satisfied with the service,” Fancher told the board.
