Cell phones........get phase II compliant (you are collecting 911 surcharges?)
Repeaters....build more! It is not the users fault that there is not enough infrastructure
Outdated equipment/state telecom board Who is going to these meetings, who is make noise, 5 billon is going to be set aside for interoperability, get some!
Someone needs to be dedicated (a full time job for someone) to fixing these problems. Push for someone to do this to fix the problems!
Telephone lines... Go microwave, should have been done from the beginning, leased lines are a cop out for critical infrastructure

Microwave isn't always possible if you don't have a clear shot and/or towers in convinient spots to make it happen. Sometimes RTPA circutis are it.Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

How about our dispatch for the entire county ran out of the biggest city, 35,000 people, in the county, not only that but out of there PD.
Dispatchers hopping from PD channel, to county SO, to State Law Enforcement, to city FD, private ambulance, to another county channel, to one rural fire which has 2 depts on it channel. Depending on what all is happening they could be hopping through more channels if everyone in the county was out. There is 3 dispatchers, put one on city, and one on county, one on overflow. simple but they don't do that. They had a rural FD calling for directions to a fire and the dipatcher told them to standby, in the mean while that dispatcher switched to city PD and was telling the dog catcher where some dog was running loose in a neighbor hood.
Having 2 county repeaters one of which is the county highway dept., niether one works very well, lots of dead spots in the edges of the county. No direct portable radio to dispatch communications.
Dispatch not having a very good computer mapping system or E911/radio comm, and the county has all addresses start from the center of the city and go through out the county. For example my dept, no matter which direction from town we go its ALL a southwest address, until 5 miles south of town where the county line is, then its NW.
County 911 cooridnator on the CITY's payrole, and not giving a rat's @$$ about anything past the city limits.
