Howard County, Md., will spend $44,000 to launch a new snow plow tracking system to replace one the county has used for more than a decade, the Baltimore Sun reported.

The Public Works fleet of 152 vehicles will be equipped with automatic vehicle locators designed by AT&T and BSM technologies, while another 25 locators will be installed in contractor vehicles.

The cost consists of an initial $32,000 to develop a mobile-friendly website and $12,000 in annual maintenance and support costs.
