Lewis County legislators have started looking at proposals for the anticipated emergency radio upgrade project. The Johnson Newspapers report that the proposals requested three separate contracts to complete the project. The first would address the needs of the overall radio system and 911 radio system improvementswhile the second contract is for the microwave radio system. The third contract, which is expected to be paid for by grant funding awarded in May, covers the E-911 system. Legislators applied for a $6 million grant inSeptember to cover the bulk of the project, but have not received a response yet. The county was previously denied a grant for the project. County officials are optimistic about this grant request as counties that were previously turned down are now in good standing to be appropriated the funds this time around.
