Bill Hiemer isn’t in the habit of carrying his laptop to the park, but on Wednesday he was among those at the waterfront trying out downtown Elizabeth City’s new free wireless signal on their mobile devices.

GREAT JOB, MR HARRIS !

Great job by Wayne Harris, our Economic Development Director, in taking this project under his capable wing & getting it done! With so many moving parts, certainly not an easy task. Accomplished with grants & corporate/private contributions, this is a true example of what can be done in Elizabeth City when all interested parties work together. Free Wi-Fi is a huge plus for every business, resident and visitor in our Downtown. Thanks, Mr. Harris, for a very impressive accomplishment! Also, a big thank-you to Mr. West & Mr. Turney of TDA for really excellent coverage of this great event :-) ! Bill Hiemer

Correction

Great article covering an exciting addition to downtown. Please correct the owners of the former First Union building to read Russell and Rosabelle Twiford. The Twifords' have been long-time benefactors of the community with contributions to AoA, MoA, ECSU and many other organizations and individuals.
