A Des Moines bond counsel was hired by the Tama County Board of Supervisors Monday in connection with the proposed issuance of up to $6,750,000 in bonds to pay for a new emergency and law enforcement communication system. "Desperately needed" was Emergency Management and E911 Coordinator Mindy Benson's call Monday for replacement of the present radios and equipment which she has said are more than 20-years old. 1st District Supervisors Larry Vest, rural Traer, made the motion to hire Dorsey and Whitney LLC as bond counsel noting this action results in deferring action on a loan agreement and issuance of bonds. "We haven't spent a dime yet," he said by approving the bond counsel agreement.
