Roanoke Town Council pays for new emergency services software

The Roanoke Town Council paid for new emergency services computer software at its meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 2.

The board agreed to pay a bill for $11,461 to Spillman Technologies for the software. All public safety agencies in Huntington County are transitioning to the software, with towns chipping in 2.5 percent apiece toward the total cost of the software while Huntington City and Huntington County cover the majority of the cost.

Council will consult with Clerk-Treasurer JoAnne Kirchner to determine whether it would be best to pay the bill using CEDIT or Public Safety LOIT funds.

In other business:

The board voted to renew the town’s insurance for a cost of $40,814.

Council kept the same officers in place for 2018. Dave Tucker will continue to serve as council president while Troy Karshner will continue to serve as vice president.

The board’s liaisons for 2018 will be as follows: Joan Abbott, emergency services; Cory Cartwright, utility department; Karshner, park department; and John Stoeckley, Roanoke Chamber of Commerce and Roanoke Public Library.
