Communities opting out of tower policy to aid broadband

Door County communities are doing their part to promote broadband expansion by opting out of the county's policy covering tower use.  That's prompted in large part by villages, townships and cities joining broadband providers in applying for state grants to expand internet access.  Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Jim Schuessler says by opting out of the county's nearly one-size-fits-all tower policy communities can sharply reduce start-up costs.




The lighting requirements and the need to register towers with the FAA won't apply to broadband towers being proposed in several communities.  That's because the towers are below 200-feet high and are excluded from the county tower policy.
