The Pulaski County Commissioners this week accepted a change order from CenturyLink that increased the 911 system project cost by nearly $22,000. RB Walters of DeGroot Technology told the commissioners last month that these change notices required their approval and the commissioners approved them pending council approval. Since then, the council gave their blessing, and the commissioners this week proceeded with accepting the change orders.
Walters told the commissioners this week that he would soon be replacing two outdated servers, but another server is experiencing a number of issues. The server is a vital part of the record-keeping system and the commissioners approved the advertisement of around $4500 for a new server, but Walters said he did not have exact paperwork. He explained he will bring the exact cost figures to the next meeting.
The commissioners also learned that Walters replaced a power supply unit in the server as well to get it operational until it can be replaced.
