  • The McPherson County Commission approved some changes to a proposal to upgrade the county's 911 system. The new computer-aided dispatch system will allow the public to transmit texts, images, video and data to the 911 center and the department to integrate and share information seamlessly.
    The cost of these upgrades is $236,350. However, the county has received a grant for $34,020, reducing the county's cost to $202,330.
    Darren Frazier, director of emergency management and communications, said he expects the system to be installed and ready by February. The software is provided by InterAct Records Management System. The commission approved an on-call seeding agreement with Erosion Control Services in Moundridge.
    Justin Mader, public works project engineer, said the company will do seeding and mulching work following county construction projects. The commission also approved a contract with B&B Bridge Company for deck work rehabilitation on four county bridges. The cost will be about $215,000.
