Supervisors Approve Phone Service Agreement

The Webster County Board of Supervisors received three proposals and approved one to provide telephone service for the county yesterday. Andy McGill, data processing manager for the county, said five-year contract proposals from Frontier Communications and NetINS were accepted. The proposals include 150 phone number extensions, 5,000 long distance minutes, and two voice and one fax circuit. A 60-month contract with Frontier Communications would have cost the county $3,261 per month, while NetINS submitted options of $2,315 and $2,047. Several Frontier representatives were in attendance, touting the local service they could provide; however Board Chairman Bob Singer says ultimately, they went with the most cost-effective proposal 

The agreement with NetINS represents about a $70,000 difference over the course of five years.
