Appeals board OKs cell towers

The Jackson County Board of Zoning Appeals recently approved variances and special exceptions for two cell towers.

Skyway Towers of Indianapolis submitted the applications for the two 300-foot towers.

One of those towers will be erected on a 0.23-acre site at 5460 N. County Road 200E in Hamilton Township. That property is owned by Carol Ann Bell of Seymour.

The second tower will be located on a 0.23-acre site at 4514 S. County Road 700E in Grassy Fork Township. That property is owned by Melvin and Marjorie Bishop of Crothersville.

Each tower will have a 10-foot lightning rod and ground equipment.
