Ethics board reviews radio contract



“There are now safe guards that the mayor has put in place,” Bryson said.  “There’s another person who is reviewing any requests for radios or radio repairs who is not a member of the police department but works directly under the authority of the mayor. (This person) is reviewing all purchase requests or repair requests, anything that money has to be expended on.”

Walker then went on to explain how doing business with London Radio Service is in the best interest of the city.

“I pride myself on focusing on service to local governments,” Walker said.  “I started in Clay County and now provide service to six counties.  I don’t advertise, my service does that for me.  I do however go the extra mile to provide excellent service and to get things fixed and online like as quickly as possible.  I keep spare parts on the shelf and provide service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

After discussing the subject in executive session, ethics board members Donna Harris, Judy Nicholson and Beth Wilson came to an agreement; however, their opinion on the ethical relationship between the city and London Radio Service was not released and will be published at a later date.
