By Brian Slattery

Brunswick County will take a chance that an old Time Warner Cable tower off N.C. 211 in Southport will meet the needs of Southport and Oak Island’s 911 radios at a third of the cost of a new radio tower.

County commissioners approved spending $335,000 for communication equipment to install on the tower at N.C. 211 near Long Beach Road.

Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Charlie Miller spoke to the board about the need for improved signal for the VIPER radios the county switched to for police, fire, and emergency services.
