Deb Grossman, spokesperson for the LaGrange County Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program, received permission from county commissioners to buy a cellphone for the program’s breast feeding counselor. The phone will cost $149.88 and there will be a $45 monthly charge for unlimited voice, data and text service. Grossman noted that LaGrange County is doing well with the breast-feeding program and the phone is necessary for the counselor to provide 24/7 service to clients.
WIC will also be purchasing a new copier/scanner/fax machine at a cost not to exceed $7,000. The new machine and monthly maintenance costs are already budgeted for 2013.
