A consultant hired by West Palm Beach to negotiate for a new police radio system recommended Monday that the city spend up to $5.6 million to upgrade a system that has already cost the city $5 million but has never been activated.
Mayor Jeri Muoio, who for two years has said she wants the city to go on its own radio system and not remain with the multi-city consortium that runs the OpenSky radio system, now says she favors the recommendation.
