Fiscal Court Approves Call System Contract
By Carrie Pond
Murray, KY – Calloway County fiscal court members Tuesday voted to sign a conditional one-year contract for a new emergency notification phone system. The vote follows last week's test of the software, which went off with only a few kinks. Emergency Management Director Bill Call says the company- One Call Now- is confident it will be able to make the board's desired adjustments. During last week's test, the number appeared on Caller-ID as a toll-free number, so board members want the call to be easily identified as an emergency call. The system costs less than 15 thousand dollars, which Call says is roughly the cost of a single emergency siren.
