Jackson Co. can save $80K on annual phone bill
Published: November 23,2010
PASCAGOIULA — Jackson County supervisors have learned the basic ways to save $80,000 a year on the county phone bill.
The Sun Herald reports RMH Telecom Consultants’ Robert Hardy told the board Monday that by taking advantage of a state contract with the company that provides telephone service to the county, Jackson County could realize $69,000 a year in savings.
Hardy said it would be a matter of shifting billing through the state.
In addition to those savings, Hardy said his company found data circuits that Jackson County was being billed for even though it had terminated them after Hurricane Katrina.
Hardy said straightening that out constituted a $17,000-a-year savings, and the county could pursue a refund for the lines back to 2005.
