The Gordon County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday night approved the purchase of a new Computer Aided Dispatch System for Gordon County E-911.

According to Gordon County Administrator John King, the five-year agreement with Spillman Technologies will replace the existing system. The county will begin coordination with Spillman for the equipment and software installation, data transfer and training for all 911 operators during an initial start of work meeting.

“This is a contract to provide software and purchase third party hardware with Spillman Technologies to replace our current CAD system,” said Gordon County Attorney Jim Ledbetter. “The package total is $298,292 and includes $96,000 in hardware, $112,800 in professional services, $44,700 in third-party hardware and we’ve also purchased an extended maintenance plan for $43,892. That price is going to be spread out over the term of the contract in a lease-purchase.”
