The Trigg County Communications Board unanimously approved the proposal when they met early Wednesday morning.
Cadiz Police Chief Hollis Alexander said they want that equipment there “so that the State Police can have better communications in that part of the county.”
Alexander went on to say, “I’m certainly for it. Any time we can advance the communications and better serve them, I think it helps the Sheriff out in that end of the county, as far as the State being able to respond and help him out.”
The 300,000-gallon, 100-foot-tall tower stands near Ky. 139, or South Road, near the Kentucky/Tennessee line, said BLWD Manager Terry Goins, who added that the matter will come back to the BLWD Board when they meet again Monday afternoon.
