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.

Or it can reject aid, retain its private beach and allow erosion and other issues to worsen. (AP Photo/Emily Dooley)
