VERNON — The city spent $2,800 upgrading the Vernon Fire Department security system, the City Council learned on Dec. 10.

City Council Member Byron Biddle asked about a $2,800 expense on the monthly report, and City Clerk Dian Hendrix explained that the expenditure was for the security system upgrade.

The council approved the expenditure at the Nov. 26 meeting when Hendrix explained that the fire department security system was in need of an upgrade, and requested approval for $3,000 for the improvements.

“We bought a new computer for the system, but it was so old it didn’t work with the new computer,” she said.

The council also accepted the low bid of $558,279.50 from Utilities Solutions of DeFuniak Springs for the replacement of 25,000 feet of city water lines.

Nolan Baker of CDG Engineers & Associates of Dothan, Ala., presented the bids to the council.

“Now we’ll get to work on getting the contracts and paperwork drawn up,” Baker said once the bid was accepted.
