An $80,000 contract with Sentinel Technologies for infrastructure and network equipment for Queen Creek’s new police department was recently approved by the Town Council.
“This equipment is being purchased at a reduced price due to the vendor year-end. If we delay the purchase the price will be at a higher cost in the future,” Procurement Manager Melissa Bauer said in a memo to the Town Council.
Funds for the contract have been identified within the town’s line-item budget, she said.
The Town Council on July 15 voted unanimously to approve the contract in a consent agenda with other items with Councilmember Emilena Turley absent. On the dais were Mayor Gail Barney and Councilmembers Jake Hoffman and Robin Benning. Meeting by WebEx were Vice Mayor Julia Wheatley and Councilmembers Jeff Brown and Dawn Oliphant.
