Consider This: Digital radio system a clear choice for Horry County

Horry County leaders want to spend $16 million to buy a new digital radio system for emergency workers.

The current one in use is an analog system and has dead spots that cause a public safety concern and on top of that…the system will no longer be usable after 2016 as the manufacturer will no longer support it, instead focusing on new, more reliable technology.

It’s a big price tag; but how do you argue against it?

We are fortunate to have collected more revenue with Ride II than projected meaning all of the road projects will be funded and completed.  And now the county has extra money to spend on this much needed communication system.

Consider This:  The money is there.  The need is there and it benefits everybody in the county.  County Council is right on track with this initiative.
