||Western Will County Communications Center
||The Western Will County Communications Center (WESCOM) owns, operates and
maintains a wireless radio network for the purpose of monitoring and receiving fire, burglar,
trouble and supervisory alarm signals from premise equipment. The radio transmitter that
connects to on-site premise equipment is also owned by WESCOM. All premises that
connect to WESCOM’s alarm network fall within its jurisdiction of coverage in Will,
Grundy, Kendall, DuPage and Cook Counties, Illinois.

These fees are remitted to WESCOM on a scheduled basis, and the vendor is compensated
for their work.
WESCOM currently has approximately 980 alarm connections, and the network continues to
grow as the communities and districts in our jurisdiction grow. WESCOM charges a fee of
$50 per month for alarm monitoring services.
WESCOM currently has approximately 123 accounts that are in arrears 30 days or more,
with an estimated dollar value of $335,600.
The successful bidder will be involved in the collection of outstanding alarm maintenance
fees for WESCOM.
