County set to buy computers

Friday, October 11, 2002

CHARLESTON - Computers for the E-911 centers at Charleston and East Prairie will be supplied by Integrated Computer Solutions in East Prairie which submitted the low bid of $4,950 for two desktop stations and two laptop computers.

Commissioners opened bids and made their decision during their regular session Thursday.

The only other bid was from Anderson Computer in Charleston which offered to sell the four computers for $5,352.

County Clerk Junior DeLay said in addition to having offered the lowest bid, Integrated Computer Solutions also offered a better warranty.

Each of the E-911 centers will receive one desktop and one laptop. The laptops will be used for remote access, according to DeLay.

In other Mississippi County business:

* Commissioners approved an application and its overnight delivery for a homeland security grant which may help pay for the county's Geographic Information System.

The application is due at 5 p.m. today in California.

* County officials are hoping for some more warm weather so they can seal a few more roads.

Richard Wallace, county road and bridge department supervisor, is still looking at sweepers and rock spreaders for a resurfacing method commissioners hope to use during next year's blacktopping season, according to commissioners.

* Commissioners discussed plans to plant oak trees at the county-maintained Oak Grove Cemetery. Commissioner Homer Oliver reported he was advised November is the ideal time to plant the oaks.
