BCC To Improve Campus Security
Brunswick Community College
plans to increase campus security
this year with the hiring of an even
ing coordinator and installation of
alarms and a computerized card ac
cess system.
The three-step plan, approved by
trustees last week, will cost approx
imately $25,431.
The new employee will not be a
"security guard," but his or her pre
sence on campus is expected to help
deter crime.
The part-time staff member would
be available to assist faculty, answer
questions for visitors, escort females
to their cars on request and generally
manage the college in the evening.
This coordinator would be equipped
On Sal* At
with a walkie-talkie for communica
tion with the switchboard operator
and will be paid $8 an hour.
An earlier proposal called for the
alarm and card access systems, but
no additional employees. A com
mittee of trustees has since decided
that the college's highest priority
should be the physical security of
students, visitors and staff.
The second phase of the project
calls for installing alarm systems in
building without them, activating all
campus alarm systems and lying
them to a emergency notification
service bureau, at a cost of $10,431.
Finally, as the project budget per
mit, a computerized card access
system would be installed building
by building. "The computer can tell
us who went in and when," said Al
bert Wooten, chairman of the build
ing and grounds committee.
Noting that a similar system is in
place at Carolina Power & Light's
Brunswick Nuclear Plant, Board
Chairman David Kelly said, "It
works mighty good."
The $25, (XX) budget for campus
security was included in the col
lege's allocation from Brunswick
County this year.

Holden Refuses To Waive Fee
Heritage Harbor Properly Owners
Association must pay a $20 permit
fee to the Town of Holdcn Beach
for a new sign planned for the en
trance to the island subdivision.
Town commissioners rejected the
property owners association's re
quest to waive the fee at a special
meeting last Wednesday, saying
other subdivisions have paid permit
fees for their signs in the past.
"If we've charged all the rest of
them, I don't think we have any
choice," Commissioner Bob Buck
Interim Town Manager Diane
Clark said a representative of the
Heritage Harbor group said he was
told by the former town manager,
Blake Proctor, that the permit fee
would be waived.
But Building Inspector Dwight
Carroll said at last week's meeting
that the former manager never
agreed to waive the $20 fee.
Carroll said the town waived the
S35 fee for appearing before the
town board of adjustment because
that's what's been done in similar
situations in the past.
The property owners association
came before the board of adjust
ment last month to request a vari
ance from town code. The variance
would allow the new sign to be
placed in the right of way on Scotch
Bonnet Drive.
In other business, commissioners
voted to pay S9.050 to Southport ar
chitect John Thompson for design
work relating to the renovation and
expansion of the town hall complcx.
