They had to have bought all new phones!

By:  Diane Benjamin

I decided to see what the PCard and phone bills were for January.  I was interrupted and side-tracked at least a dozen times, forgive me if I missed something.

January phone Checks written: $26,112.00

February checks:  6,843.36

January phone PCard Charges:  $11,301.98

Total January:  $37,413.98

February PCard:  $209,026.79

Total February:  $216,077.72

I don’t know what could explain the difference other than new phones for all!

Do they have a written cell phone policy?

    I would say those charges of $100-$150 would be for monthly service only. All other charges would probably be for new phones. I’ve seen several Staff members with new tablets. Those are sometimes charged through phone companies. 🐥

  2. Not all of it is phones. For some departments Verizon is also AVL on fleet vehicles.

      They don’t need discounts. They have taxpayers. It’s like a free lunch…they really do exist if you work for the government.

  4. Just guessing that all the police cars, ambulances and fire trucks have a computer in them. So they probably have a Verizon Data card in those, that’s 100 right there.
