The Clinton County Board of Commissioners met on Feb. 25, 2015 to discuss plans to build a communications tower in the Southeast region of Clinton County. The $1.29 million project has been discussed for almost 14 years now. According to Clinton County documents, the tower will increase the effectiveness of the county’s communications system, making it easier for police to communicate with each other and will improve communications between citizens and police during any emergency. “This tower is necessary because radio communications are not operable related to topography,” said Clinton County Administrator Ryan Wood.
