Executive Committee plans up-close look at mobile communications resource

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

The Capital Area Council of Governments Executive Committee will get a chance to kick the tires of Williamson County's emergency mobile communications vehicle during the committee's 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, session at 6800 Burleson Road, Building 310, Suite 165, in Austin.

The Regional Mobile Communications Platform 3 vehicle, made possible in part by federal Homeland Security Grant Program funds awarded through CAPCOG, can provide rapid mobile voice and data communications support - including replacing a damaged or destroyed 9-1-1 communication center - in the event of a natural disaster or other major event. Staff from Williamson County's Emergency Communications Department will brief the committee on RMC-3's capabilities and provide a tour.

Also on the meeting agenda: a presentation on regional water issues, updates to Travis County representation on the committee and review or approval of selected agency business. 

As CAPCOG's governing body, the 28-member Executive Committee - including three nonvoting legislators representing State Planning Region 12 - largely comprises city and county elected officials nominated and selected annually to provide direction to CAPCOG staff regarding program implementation, budgets and contracts, and general policies and procedures for managing the agency. Members meet the second Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m.

CAPCOG, serving Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis and Williamson counties, helps its member governments and organizations maximize opportunities and eliminate duplication on key regional issues.
