Washoe County, NV: Agreement Reached for $150M Radio System

- Via the Nevada Appeal

The Washoe County Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to join the inter-local agreement that will build and operate the Shared Nevada Radio System. That's a $150 million project that will build an 800-megahertz public safety radio network for Northern and rural Nevada with Washoe County, the Nevada Department of Transportation, and Sierra Pacific Power, which is owned by NV Energy, as partners.

Washoe County's approval was much more abbreviated and smoother than the Monday hearing before the Nevada Transportation Board, which required more than 90 minutes of questions and testimony before the panel, headed by Gov. Brian Sandoval, unanimously approved the inter-local agreement.

The next step is to put out the Request for Proposal to potential vendors. The state of Nevada will put up about $90 million of the cost with Washoe County and Sierra Pacific making up the remainder of the total. Washoe County's sign-off on Tuesday completes the inter-local agreement, allowing the project to move ahead.
