LOCKPORT, N.Y. - The Niagara County Legislature has approved a consultant deal that will study how the county can improve its telephone system at county government buildings. Some lawmakers say that the deal will get rid of the current system, which they say is too old and needs to be replaced.
While others believe that campaign donations tells the real story.
"The technology that's currently there with our phone system is extremely obsolete," said Republican legislator, David Godfrey, who sits on the Administration Committee, which allowed the contract to be voted on the full legislature.
So, Tuesday night, the Republican-led legislature awarded a contract to study this problem.
