Commissioners OK dog warden internet change, talk vehicle purchases

Richland County commissioners Cliff Mears, Tony Vero and Darrell Banks.

The Richland County commissioners have decided to pay an early termination fee for current internet service at the Dog Warden’s office in order to save money while bringing the office under the same provider as other county departments and offices. The decision was made after the board met with County Auditor Pat Dropsey and Matt Hill from the auditor’s IT department.

Hill told commissioners the Dog Warden’s office is the only one that has not converted from Lumen, formerly CenturyLink, to Spectrum and still has13 months on the Lumen contract at a cost of $3,796 per month. He said early termination would cost 50% of the remaining contract, depending on the company’s current interpretation, which would total around $4,000 under the worst case scenario.
