Report: Knox E-911 state system to cost $3M more than going in house
An independent consulting firm has suggested that hooking onto the
Tennessee Valley Regional Communications System could end up costing
Knox County roughly $3 million more than if the county bought its own
digital radio system.
Instead, the firm recommended, the city and
county should hire Harris Communications, the company that initially won
the rights to oversee the system during a bidding process conducted
earlier this year.
The firm, Pennsylvania-based Blue Wing, Inc., turned over its 80-page report to the county on Friday.
The Knox County E-911 Board will discuss the findings during its Nov. 9 meeting.
