HAMPSTEAD – The Board of Selectmen received a surprise gift of a new telephone system Monday evening. Mike Higgins gave the Town a new AVAYA phone system to replace the one currently in place in the Town Office Building. The AVAYA Magix PBX system offers caller ID and is widely used by U.S. government agencies, Higgins told the board.
“The ‘gift’ includes installation of one AVAYA Magix PBX System, one Merlin Messaging Voicemail System, operator console, 16-plus phones, Auto Attendant set-up and on-site end user training for one day,” he said. The board asked if it needed to hold a public hearing for the gift and Higgins confirmed the gift is under the criteria for a public hearing.
