Roulette Township Receives $6,000.00
Grant For 2-Way Radios


The $6000.00 grant money that is being received is being utilized to supplement funding to purchase and operate new high frequency radios for the township.

The acquisition includes the purchase and installation of 3 mobile radios mounted in the plow and service vehicles, 1 mobile radio mounted at the township office, three handheld radios with spare batteries, and a dedicated frequency in which to talk with each other.

The primary function of this equipment is to enable communications between the road workers and the office. Being in such a rural area, the majority of the locations which our workers are in are too remote for reliable cellular coverage. This will help to ensure the ability to communicate road conditions, hazards, and receive assistance when there are issues without walking miles to get cell service.

A supplemental benefit to this acquisition is the ability for the township to communicate easily with other municipalities, the fire departments, the county and the local dispatching agencies during times of emergency.

The Roulette Township Supervisors would like to thank Barry Mayes, the DCED, Charlotte Dietrich and Doug Morley for their roles in helping us receive such a generous grant.


North Central, through funding provided by the PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED), looks for opportunities such as this to partner with the local municipalities and the Potter County officials to make available funds to increase the use of today’s technology to help the local municipality to better serve their constituents, as well as increase the health and safety of municipal employees/officials, constituents and the traveling public.

So...what happened with the rest of the grant money after they spent the first $1,200 on radios??

Actually the total cost of the radio equipment and the dedicated frequency was $7,400.00. The additional $1400.00 was expended from the state liquid fuels tax account. As usual, I recommend attending the monthly meetings to understand where your tax dollars are spent and why.

To Mr. Sarcastic (aka Moron); Why to you think that they only spent $1200 on radios? These aren't CBs like you play with all day we're talking about here. Public service band radios are a little more pricey. And then you also have to figure in the cost of installation. So next time try doing a little research before you open your mouth.

That being said, congrats to Roulette Twp for receiving this grant and putting it to a great use.

Congrats to roulette Twp. I also would like to thank Barry Mayes from North Central for all of his generous support up here in the northern teir, I don't think people realize how much North Central Reg. Planning & Dev. can do for us.

I hope one of the road masters has one of these radios to tell his plow guys enough is enough. Our money can be better spent then repairing trucks and roads from plowing bare roads just for something to do.
