Twin Lakes Village Board discusses surge protection for police station

Sometimes you have to spend a little money to save a whole lot more.

That seemed to be the philosophy Monday night behind the Twin Lakes Village Board’s discussion of purchasing building wide surge suppression for the police station.

The police station has experienced damage to equipment caused by lightning strikes in the past. The resulting power surges have damaged equipment that cost from $15-20,000 to replace, said village administrator David Cox.

Police Chief Dale Racer has obtained quotes for building wide surge protection that would cost $6,000 or $8,000 and provide additional — though maybe not total — protection from future damaging surges.

Recent surges have damaged dispatch room and heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment, Racer said.

Final action on the $6,000 proposal recommended by Racer will take place at a future meeting.
