CALL TO ORDER AT 5:44 P.M.

DECLARATION OF A QUORUM

Roll was called with four Commissioners present and a quorum was declared.

AGENDA ITEM NO. 1: Discussion of the Communications Upgrade Project.

City Manager Brian McDougal began the discussion by explaining the proposed lease with Motorola which will be considered during the city commission meeting later. He stated that this project has been a priority for quite some time and has been on the Capital Improvement list for 2 or 3 years. The City Manager then turned the presentation over to Emergency Management Director Don Lynch.
Mr. Lynch provided briefing documents regarding the upgrade project. He gave a brief history of the current state of our communication system and also spoke regarding the “dead” radio coverage areas in the northern part of the City. Mr. Lynch listed the following projects that will be completed if the proposed upgrade is approved:

a. Upgrade Existing Intelli-Repeater Site at Shawnee City Hall. The proposed upgrade will replace seven Motorola Quantar Repeaters that are at the end of the product life and add three additional repeaters for a total of ten.
b. Maintenance on Existing Antenna Monopole at Shawnee City Hall. The project will provide labor and materials to
• Strip the monopole of all antennas, scrape the paint, wash and prime the pole then repaint.
• Replace climbing pegs that are missing
• Replace all of the banding and refasten antenna standoffs to the tower and replace rested components
• Replace all antennas and feedline
c. Replace and Upgrade Existing Radio Consoles in Dispatch Center at Shawnee City Hall. This project will replace the three existing consoles which are near the end of product life and add an additional four consoles, bring the total number of consoles to seven.
d. Add a New Intelli-Repeater Site at the Water Tower on North Kickapoo. This site will add ten additional repeaters and will improve the poor coverage in the north part of town.
e. Replacement of Subscriber Radios in Public Safety Vehicles. The project proposes to replace 140 mobile and portable radios in the Police and Fire Departments. The old radios will be transferred to general government use.
f. New VHF and UHF Radios for Emergency Management. This will improve the ability to activate the outdoor warning devices and will also be used by the fire department as a secondary means of alerting fire stations of calls for service.

Mr. Lynch then discussed the project cost estimate. Equipment to be funded under the proposed Lease/Purchase from Motorola will total $2,065,746.00. The equipment to be funded by the City of Shawnee totals $114,075.00. The total project cost is $2,179,821.00.

AGENDA ITEM NO. 2: ADJOURNMENT
