To be clear, Independence County is not getting into the cellular communication business. While the county is sharing part of an Arkansas Department of Transportation cell tower in the Thida and Pleasant Plains area, it’s to improve emergency radio communications for law enforcement, fire departments, and county road workers, not cell phone service for the public.

Judge Robert Griffin texted us Wednesday night to point out our Wednesday article reporting on quorum court conference call missed that important detail. Cell phone reception for consumers in these areas won’t be improving, but emergency radio communications for law enforcement, fire departments, and county road workers will.
