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.
