Memorandum

Please find attached for your consideration a resolution that authorizes the issuance of a purchase order to Washtenaw County for FY16 for the City of Ann Arbor’s share of the maintenance costs of the shared 800 MHz simulcast system.

 

The cost of maintaining the system is distributed to each radio that uses the 800 MHz system.  The current cost for each radio is $50.00 per year.  The City currently has 764 radios that use the system; therefore, our cost of maintaining the system annually is $38,200.00

 

Annually each Service Area budgets their share of the 800 MHz system costs in their operating budgets.  The Field Operations Service Unit of the Public Service Area receives internal transfers from each Service Area and pays Washtenaw County, who is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the system.
