County County Passes First Reading of Tower Ordinance

At their most recent meeting Kershaw County Council passed first of an ordinance dealing with communications towers.  The ordinance establishes what is called a tower notification zone and is intended to give adjacent property owners more voice in the location of communications and cell phone towers.  The tower notification zone equals one and a quarter time the height of the tower and property owners in the zone who oppose the location of the tower can take the matter before the Kershaw County Planning and Zoning Commission.  The measure passed with a unanimous vote.  The ordinance faces two more readings before it becomes final.
