Upgraded telephone system in the works for OB

OSAGE BEACH – The city is moving forward with an upgrade to their telephone systems, since, as City Administrator Jeana Woods says, “Our phone system is at its end of life.”

The proposal, which had its first reading approved last week, would be to purchase the equipment from Mitel for $15,196.97.

“This is a Cooperative Bid Purchase using a contract that was originally administered by NJPA on behalf of the State of Montana, the State of South Carolina, the State of Nevada, the State of Washington and many other governmental entities,” said Assistant City Administrator Mike Welty in his report to the Board of Aldermen.

The breakdown of the cost is:

• Mitel:$ 3,305.00
• TCS: $11,891.97

TCS is the local vendor that Mitel uses for installation in Central Missouri, according to Welty.
