Page County Board of Supervisors approved $4,800 to improve 911 dispatch reception for the Shenandoah Police Department.
Page County Communications Director Kris Grebert informed the supervisors Tuesday, Feb. 19, Shenandoah police officers have had difficulty with 911 communication inside buildings since the county’s new digital system was activated last month. A signal booster will ease that problem.
The county has a $12,000 credit with Motorola Solutions, who designed the new 911 system. The $4,800 will come from that credit. Grebert expected the work will take about a week.
Supervisors approved a tax abatement for the city of Clarinda for property at 522 W. Main St. The property had been considered a nuisance and has been destroyed.
