It's unfortunate that the county didn't already take advantage of infrastructure being put into place by the State of North Carolina on the VIPER System. So much for frugal use of tax dollars! My guess it would have cost them no where near the $9 million to join VIPER versus going their own way. I beleive somebody got snowed by a really good, fast talking radio salesperson!
