County begins major purchases of radio equipment
As Hubbard County complies with a federal mandate to convert all radio communications to narrowband by 2013, the board Wednesday approved spending $479,862 for radio equipment.
Hubbard County is joining a statewide radio program called ARMER. Costs for the conversion have been defrayed by grant monies and the 911 fund, which accrues at a rate of $96,000 annually. That fund will be called on to help supplement the county's share of the conversion, which is slated for this fall.
