GOSHEN — Elkhart County leaders have renewed a contract to rent a radio tower in Elkhart that allows county departments to operate two-way radios.

The Elkhart County Board of Commissioners signed a five-year agreement with Pathfinder Communications Corp. to lease a 400-foot tower and transmitter building on East Indiana Avenue in Elkhart. The county surveyor’s office and the code enforcement department use a two-way radio system that depends on the tower.

The commissioners agreed to pay $540 per month in 2014. The monthly rent increases by $15 each year after that until the contract expires at the end of 2018.

 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
