Slayton City Council

March 20, 2013

Council opts to move phone service; evaluates adminstrator
By: Rebecca Hudson Murray County News Staffwriter

The Slayton City Council Monday night decided to change its phone service carrier from Frontier to Knology in an effort to save money and receive additional services that the new service would provide. 

First brought to council attention in January by City Administrator Josh Malchow, explained that by installing a "voice over IP" (VoIP) phone system, the city would have greater flexibilty in routing and transfer of calls in addition to other tools.  In addition, the cost will be approximately $200 a month less than the existing traditional phone service.

The city will enter into a three- year contract with Knology at a cost of $763.70 per month.  The previous year's monthly costs for phone service ranged from $987 to $1,000 per month.

A final payment of $10.720.62 for the 26th Street improvements was approved less a 2% retainage of $7,147.09 to Rupp Construction.  There are a few cosmetic issues including seeding of areas, Malchow said, but other than that the project has been completed.
