The Pender County Office of Emergency Management urged residents to sign up for the free weather-alert system, CodeRed.

“With the recent loss of the Winnabow transmitter, Pender County residents will not receive NOAA weather alerts on their weather radios,” said Tom Collins, Pender County Emergency Manager. “We urge our residents to sign up for CodeRed, a free alert system for Pender County.”

Collins said the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather radio transmitter in Winnabow is damaged. He said it was most likely damaged during Hurricane Matthew but the recent winter weather caused the failure.

Pender County will launch a new Software Program on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 aimed at improving Agenda Management and Transparency for Pender County.

Pender County is currently working to complete Phase 1 of the implementation of the iCompass Agenda Software. The transition to a paperless agenda and records management system is expected to benefit the Pender County in a number of ways. First, by reducing the time the County Manager’s office spends preparing and distributing agenda packets.  We expect this new tool to save many hours per meeting which our Manager’s office will use to focus on other important projects. Secondly, this program will reduce the number of paper packets printed for the Board of Commissioners Meeting. Of course, this improvement in paper usage will also have a substantial  impact on our overall carbon footprint. Perhaps the most important benefit of this system is that Pender County has improved the public’s access to information online by launching the CivicWeb Portal - a new online hub for meeting and records information.  We are excited to now provide complete searchable access to agenda packets and supporting items from previous and upcoming meetings online. Once the Municode Code Recodification project is complete, the Public will also be able to find Pender County’s Code of Ordinances here. To view the iCompass CivicWeb Portal and subscribe for updates, please visit https://pendercountync.civicweb.net/Portal/.
