Board members are set to hear from Scotty Hancock, the county’s emergency management agency director, and two consultants at its caucus session.
Two change orders to the Harris Corp. radio contract, deferred from the June 19 meeting, are on the action agenda.
County Manager Blaine Williams said the total cost is still below the $26.7 million earmarked in the 2009 special purpose, local option sales tax package.
“With any big construction project you have, there are periods of uncertainty … we’re moving past that now,” he told the board last month.
Some of the extra costs are associated with soil conditions at the radio tower sites — especially in the Lake Marvin area where a track hoe with a 4,800-pound hammer had to be rented for a month to remove rock.
Also, adjustments had to be made to rein in the signal area, which extended too far outside the county to meet Federal Communications Commission licensing approval.
Commissioners deferred action on the change orders until today, when Allen Cutts of Tusa Consulting could provide details about the FCC licensing status.
The board also may take action to dispose of surplus weapons held by the county police department.
Commissioners caucus at noon and start their regular session at 2 p.m. in the County Administration Building, 12 E. Fourth Ave. Both sessions are open to the public.
