911 BUILDING PLANS APPROVED - Bids Will Be Advertised, Annual Levy Approved


The architect plans submitted by Sean Simon of Spencer for a new 911 building for Calhoun county were approved by the Calhoun Commission at a special meeting held yesterday.

The small building will be constructed on a lot donated by the Calhoun Board of Education behind Calhoun-Middle High School, and will house radio and E-911 equipment for the county system.

Besides the routine approval of levy rates for the county, the commission moved to advertise for bids for construction of the 911 building. The bids will be opened on May 7.

A bid opening was conducted for a generator for Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center, accepting a low bid of $107,000 from Walker Machinery.

The hiring of part-time 911 center help was delayed contingent upon a written recommendation from the 911 Director and advisory board.
