ATLANTA — Atlanta officials made a two-hour pitch Monday to City Council members that a new $41.6 million radio system will help authorities communicate better with police and fire officials across the region.
The city wants the council to approve a 10-year lease with Motorola to replace Atlanta's 12-year-old analog system with a digital system being used in Cobb County. The Motorola system is being installed in DeKalb and Gwinnett counties.
