The Effingham County 911 Board met to discuss possibly upgrading the system they use to record calls. Currently, some calls are recorded using an analog system. However, maintenance costs to repair analog systems continue to rise so the county is considering upgrading to a full digital system. According to Systems Administrator Jodi Moomaw, the company providing the recording services, Word Systems, INC, said that upgrading would not cost much more than the county’s current maintenance plan. Word Systems, INC is currently preparing a proposal.
The board also discussed updating certain By-Laws to make them more current. According to Moomaw, the changes being made are routine in nature.
