The Barton County Commission Monday morning approved replacing aging devices serving Barton County law enforcement.
First, commissioners approved the purchase of a new copier for the Sheriff’s Office. Having made almost a million copies over the last 10 years, the current Sheriff’s Office copier needs to be replaced. Sheriff Brian Bellendir said.
He recommended the current unit be traded for a Canon ImageRunner Advance C5535i from Office Products Inc. in Great Bend. With trade, the delivery price of the updated copier is $9,400. In addition, there will be a $60 monthly maintenance agreement charge. The initial cost will be paid through equipment replacement, with the Sheriff’s Office being responsible for the monthly maintenance.
Bellendir said was surprised by how many copies the machine had made over the years. But, the copier makes copies of cases that go to attorneys, copies of accident reports that to go to victims and insurance companies and copies requested by the general public.
The sheriff said they looked at renting a machine. But, this still required the service agreement.
Besides, with the heavy use, the copier — which has a 10-year life expectancy — will pay for itself in about four years, he said. “We’d be money ahead.”
