Senoia awards contract for new police/court building

Senoia’s new police and municipal court building is still on schedule to open in early May. The City Council Monday night in preparation for the opening approved bids for the installation of the telephone system and the court speaker and recording system.

The council after hearing the specifics of the bids explained by Police Chief Jason Edens voted to hire Ultimate Security to install each of the systems.

Ultimate’s bid for the court recording and speaker system was $4,750 compared to the $5,225 offered by Diversified Resource Group and $10,881 from Trinity Technical Solutions.

Though it was the high bidder for the phone system, Ultimate Security was awarded the bid totaling $9,470. That bid compared to $6,353 from Botwin Communications and $4,502 from Spratcom. The Ultimate bid did come with a lower annual maintenance contract.

In his rationale for recommending Ultimate, Edens said the company, compared to the others, afforded the city the best opportunity to adapt to future expansion needs within the police/court building and in terms of the connectivity between that building, city hall and public works and the costs involved.

The council agreed and awarded the bid to Ultimate.
