Tower Battle Moves to LaGrange Circuit Court

The battle over a new communications tower has moved to LaGrange Circuit Court.

LaGrange County REMC along with Todd, Jayne, Rodney and Kathleen Perkins filed their appeal of a county board of zoning appeals denial of a variance for a new communications tower.

The 124 page lawsuit was filed last week against the LaGrange County Board of Zoning Appeals.

Not named as a plaintiff was LaGrange County itself, which partnered with the REMC to build the communications tower that would serve both REMC and provide a remote transmitter site for a new fire paging system for the county.

The tower was to be built on land owned by the Perkins family along County Road 275 South just east of State Road 3.

Other residents living in the area opposed the variance at a BZA meeting in June, and the board sided with them in denying the variance.

The tower project was bid last October with ERS-OCI WIRELESS winning the project with a bid of $438,868.

Another 347 feet tall communications tower is located just south of 275 South on State Road 3. That tower built in 2014 is owned by SBA of Boca Raton, Florida. The company develops and leases tower sites for the communications industry.

The court gave the BZA an extra 15 days to produce transcripts and records of their meeting.
