A funding reduction has been approved for the design phase of the Redding Telecommunications Upgrade Project. There was a change in the scope of the project. First Selectwoman Julia Pemberton says that's led to a reduction of $4,680, split by the four involved parties. Selectman Mike Thompson questioned if all fire departments were on board with the project and was told that this is just a reduction in the design phase. He suggested a meeting with representatives from all fire departments. Pemberton noted that Northeast Communications is available to advise where technical competency is needed. PerCon will be invited to attend a meeting in September.
