Those in the audience at the Johnson County Commissioners meetings in the future may have an easier time hearing what is going on, after the commissioners discussed the sound system in their chambers and whether or not to have it worked on or replaced.
They inherited the sound system as installed when the room was used as a courtroom.
They have received a bid from API Systems Integrators of Casper to re-install the system that was removed when the rooms were remodeled to accommodate the county commissioners.
Part of the bid price was for additional work on the system, according to Commissioner's Administrative Director Jennifer Jackson, who explained further.
Commissioner Jim Hicks suggested the commissioners wait on the decision and check into other possible solutions to the problem, suggesting it might be close to the same cost to purchase and install a new system.
The commissioners voted to table the decision for now to allow looking at other options for the sound system.
They also approved Commission Chair Delbert Eitel to make the decision once he is satisfied with one of the sound system options.
