(County to get a new Communications Tower)…The tower will help cover more of the county.
Imperial County has one of the top communications systems for emergency systems in all of California. Officials told the Board of Supervisors this week that there are some blank areas. The new tower will help fix that. The funds to pay for the new tower come from a Homeland Security Grant Program. The funds are to be distributed among the first responders in the County. The Supervisors were told the $183,940 would be pooled to pay for the tower, which will be used for inter-agency coordination in emergency and non-emergency situations.
