City authorizes more than $1 million toward public safety


Katy City Council voted July 27 to authorize nearly $1.16 million in reserve funds to be used for police, fire and emergency medical system improvements.

Mayor Pro Tem Charles Brawner said the funds will be used for a new ambulance, a radio system for the fire department that meets new federal mandates and other upgrades, including system map and flyover satellite image updates, an animal control vehicle, laptops for fire department units and a mobile repeater system that enables first responders to communicate in the field.

The largest portion of the funds, more than $549,000, will be used for data conversion and migration to a new dispatch system that will connect police, fire and EMS for the first time in the city’s history.
