New public radio system goes live

Communications Sergeant Jim Lucas, Ottawa County Sheriff Steve Levorchick, Fred Peterson of Ottawa County Emergency Management Agency, Alan Close of Cleveland Communications.

On Tuesday, April 8, Ottawa County announced the replacement of its 25 year old 800 MHZ system with a new P25 800 MHZ radio system. The new radio system has a value of over six million dollars and went live last Thursday, April 3. 

“The new system exceeds our expectations,” said Ottawa County Sheriff Steve Levorchick.

The new system, that was provided by Harris Corporation and was installed by Cleveland Communications Incorporated, was funded by grants, Sprint/Nextel funds and other financial contributions without utilizing any taxpayer dollars. Ottawa County worked with Sprint/Nextel through the federally mandated 800 MHZ rebanding order to obtain the system at no cost to the county.


Redfern votes to bring new beds to OVH

This week State Controlling Board member Rep. Chris Redfern (D-Catawba Island) voted to appropriate $315,775 to replace 150 electric beds at the Ohio Veterans Home in Sandusky.

“This is important to the quality of life and comfort of our veterans,” said Rep. Redfern. “They have risked their lives to protect our country. The least we can do is provide a safe and comfortable place for them to rest their heads.”

The Ohio Veterans Home first opened in 1888 to care for Civil War Veterans and has been in operation ever since. The home specializes in caring for individuals in need of an intermediate level of care, as well as veterans with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

There are 427 resident beds in the Ohio Veterans Home, most of which are nearing the end of their 15 year life span. The nursing home plans to replace all 427 beds throughout the course of the next two biennium budgets.

Rep. Redfern serves as one of seven members on the State Controlling Board, a panel tasked with oversight of state spending. In October, Rep. Redfern cast the deciding vote in favor of expanding Medicaid for low-income and disabled Ohioans, including some 52,000 veterans.
