But the money isn’t the biggest gain for the county, said Morganton Department of Public Safety Maj. Ronnie Rector. The biggest gain will be one communication facility for the county and the “seamless” service it would provide. • “To take this technology that exists in four separate locations and move that into one new facility is close to a $9 million project,” Rector said. The Burke County Homeland Security Task Force, which prepared the grant application, projected the consolidated PSAP’s cost at $8,480,630.
