Project is complete with the exception of the final payment to Williams Communication. Williams Communications has so far been unable to demonstrate the Loop Protection feature required by the proposal documents. Though not part of the City responsibility, the County is still waiting on changes to the project relating to the Microwave installation at the 911 center. It is my understanding that remaining funds in this SPLOST 6 project were repurposed into other SPLOST 6 projects.
