LAGRANGE – LaGrange County Commissioners approved the purchase of a half-million dollar piece of software Monday.
The new Flex Computer Aided Dispatch software was purchased without taking quotes or proposals but after much due diligence according to I-T Director Bob Murphy.
The price from Spillman Technologies – which is owned by Motorola – $512,285 plus $53,734 for system maintenance.
A $100-thousand dollar grant and inmate fees at the jail will offset a portion of the cost.
Murphy said the new system will take 12 to 18 months to implement.
County Engineer Sarah Farlow told commissioners the reconstructed bridge in Scott will re-open this afternoon, while the bridge on 100 West south of State Road 120 should reopen later this week.
