County Board to Pursue Broadband Agreement
The Moore County Board of Commissioners has passed a resolution authorizing the negotiation of written agreements between the county and a wireless broadband company.
County Manager Cary McSwain prefaced the motion to pursue payment by relating that he had inadvertently allowed Broadlink to place an antenna on a county water tank, after which the county attorney informed him that placement without payment was illegal.
"I knew it was disruptive (to customers) to remove it, but it had to come down," he said. "Ultimately, it would be good to provide broadband wireless services to the rural community."
The resolution read in part that in light of equipment being placed without payment, "the Moore County Manager is authorized and directed to negotiate written agreements" for compensation to the county from Broadlink "and any other similarly situated companies."
In other action, the board passed a resolution recognizing 4-year old Lucas Daniel Odom for his actions in calling 911 to assist his mother, who had suffered a medical emergency.
