Commissioners approve purchase of updated data, communication equipment for EOC

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Williston said at no time in the future would the sheriff’s office allow an assessor employee to connect to the sheriff’s network. The two will never merge because of the huge security risk involved.
“The issue is not to have the sheriff’s office on the same server as the courthouse or EOC, but to have the EOC on the courthouse’s current phone system so that we can save money. I know the upfront investment is costly, but we’re going to make that money up just in the first couple of months on the phone bill alone,” said Williston. 
“In a Plexar system you put in an additional line, you’re going to have an additional monthly bill. Here we have a collection of numbers, (ie: if someone needs to configure a new phone number, there is no monthly cost) we pay a base rate every month.”
Sappington said if the sheriff’s office would spend $20,000 to upgrade the entire building to CAT 5, then they would make the switch purchase, however, RCSO operates fine with the service they have now. 
District 3 Commissioner Kirt Thacker made the motion to pay for the switch for the EOC from 911 addressing funds. 
DeLozier and Helm both voted in favor.
