Commissioners plan next steps toward new communications tower

Next steps toward eventual construction of a new Boone County communications tower were discussed by county commissioners Monday, Dec. 8.
Sheryl Machacek, communications director, and Sheriff Denny Johnson reported progress so far.
The southwest corner of the fairgrounds has been identified as the probable location of the new 300 foot tower. After looking at the site, tower suppliers have stated the space would be suitable for a free-standing tower but not a guide-wired tower.
