The improvements also include buying five narrow band capable two-way mobile radios for $7,500; and one maintenance support vehicle for $35,050.

The total cost of the upgrades comes to $1,933,750.

The projects will be paid through $1.54 million in federal money; $328,606 in state funds and a local match commitment in the amount of $64,144. The local match is for 2015.
