Two contracts were approved for the Southlake Department of Public Safety’s Emergency Operations Center during the May 21 City Council meeting.

The details

A change order was approved for Allen-based Gliden Industries to install a new pathway for cables for a HAM radio room, which also includes adding new antennae systems, according to city documents.

The city had $7,197 left in the contingency fund from the original contract that was not to exceed $753,000, which was approved during the Dec. 5 meeting. The revised contract total is now for an amount not to exceed $782,000. The change order contract for Gliden is for $28,830, according to city documents.

Located at 600 State St., the emergency operations center is moving from the second floor to the bottom level of the department of public safety. Work for the project commenced in January.

What else?

The HAM radio work installation was a byproduct of a contract with Mobile Communications America, a company headquartered in Arlington. The contract between the city includes the purchase of equipment, services and installation of equipment in an amount not to exceed $69,300.

Funding for the projects will come from the Capital Improvements Program budget and the Crime Control and Prevention District budget.
