With one existing system approaching the end of its contract, a new two-way radio system for use by police, firefighters, emergency medical personnel, school bus drivers, road crews and other public servants in Bulloch County could cost, by one projection, $3.6 million. But the city of Statesboro, the county government, the Board of Education and Georgia Southern University will first pay $15,000 each, a total of $60,000, for Omnicom Consulting Group of Tallahassee, Florida, to advise them on the issue. “Given the price tag on this, we thought that it would be advantageous to look for a consultant to tell us whether it’s a good deal, is it not, are there other options,” said Darren Prather, central services director for the city of Statesboro.
