The Lafayette Public Utilities Authority is going to consider allocating 850,000 dollars toward the purchase of a SmartNet Trunked Radio System. This is a sophisticated "two way radio" system operating in the 800mhz range (as far as I can tell) that has been deployed chiefly to manage complex public service radio communications (police, fire, 911, emergency preparedness, etc).
