Weather prompts county to delay business



Rogers County Information Technology Director Brett Williston has requested an outside contractor be hired to work on the critical infrastructure, according to E911 Director Janet Hamilton.
Commissioner Mike Helm voiced his concern about hiring the contractor when he is not able to work on Presidio products.
“Brett will continue to take care of the Presidio phone system for the center,” Hamilton said.
The center has two systems, the Presidio phone system and a dispatch/911 module, according to Hamilton.
Nine computers need immediate installation and interfacing with the servers, she said.
Parks contracts services with the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office and was recently approached about working on the installation of equipment in the new Emergency Operation Center located in the Rogers County Jail.
Helm said Parks was unable to perform all the work necessary for the EOC and questioned how the E911 Center project would be managed.
“Brett is more than qualified to do the work,” said Hamilton. “He is just uncomfortable touching anything dealing with critical infrastructure or 911.”
Williston was not present for the discussion but told the Claremore Daily Progress he will be working on the installation of the telephone and data infrastructure with Presidio. Williston said he wants to make sure the 911 equipment is installed by someone with experience in 911 systems.
In other business, the board tabled a fencing relocation project for 86th Street North in Owasso for District 2.
Helm said there were additional items with the project that he wished to discuss with the district attorney before bringing the item before the board for a vote.
Commissioner Dan DeLozier made a short announcement, thanking county employees for their work in clearing the roads during the snowstorm.
He also thanked Rogers County residents for staying off the roads during the storm and making it easier for plows to get through.
