The city of Marysville recently approved the purchase of new radios for its fire trucks and ambulances from two different vendors. At its regular meeting on May 26, the city council voted unanimously to approve the purchase of the radios for the fire trucks from Digicom Global, which carries Kenwood equipment, for about $12,980, and for the ambulances from AMK Services, which specializes in Tait electronics, for about $4,880. "Back in about 2014, we were told by Motorola that they were no longer going to service our current radios," said Tom Konik, public safety chief. "Since then, we've been aggressively pursuing grants and alternative funding to try to update our radios, which total more than $100,000 in capital assets.
