Taylorville School Board Approves News Phone System

 

The updated amounts of the Mitel phone system were given to the Taylorville School Board at their meeting Monday night. The board called for a re-bid at last month’s meeting due to specification issues between the three companies that could provide the system: Midco in the Chicago area, TechElectronics in the  St. Louis area, and NewWave/Heart in the Taylorville and Decatur areas. Despite Midco being the lower than NewWave/Heart by 126-dollars, Technology Direct Chris Kuntzman still preferred NewWave because of the localism factor:
