Lycoming County commissioners approved several contracts during their Thursday meeting.
A $389,000 contract was awarded to R.J. Schickler, of Scottsville, N.Y., for upgrades at two county emergency communications towers.
John Yingling, county director Department of Public Safety, said the company will construct new pre-cast shelters and install underground utilities and antennas for sites on Bald Eagle Mountain and Shrivers Ridge, north of Trout Run.
Yingling said the work could be completed by the end of the year.
Commissioners also approved a service agreement with the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association for computer equipment that will be used by the district attorney's office for central booking.
Eric R. Linhardt, district attorney, told commissioners the equipment - which can be used by any police department in the county - records fingerprints and photos digitally that can be sent immediately to state police headquarters in Harrisburg.
A $35,000 Federal Emergency Management Agency grant application was approved by commissioners to develop local emergency preparedness brochures and videos.
Mya Toon, county grants administrator, also told commissioners that bids for the sale of 11 cattle from the county farm will be accepted.
