Letter: Towers are a good investment

I'm writing in regard to "$1M sought for key radio towers" [News, Jan. 7].

I believe it's a good idea for Suffolk County to seek $1 million in federal aid to strengthen five communication towers. This project could potentially save people's lives. County officials said emergency agencies had some problems communicating during superstorm Sandy.

It's better than the county using the money to give board members pay raises or something like that. The county should spend our money on more important issues, just like this one.
