Another meteorological tower will be going up in Madison County

December 13, 2018 GMT

MADISON - Madison County will be getting another meteorological tower after it was unanimously approved by the County Commissioners at the meeting Tuesday.

Charlie Smith with Lincoln Clean Energy and Emerick Wind LLC requested a conditional use permit to construct the temporary tower nine miles southwest of Meadow Grove on 834th Road.

Smith said the tower will be 197 feet tall and not very bulky.

“It has meteorological equipment on it measuring the wind speed. There will be guides going up to the top of the tower to make sure it doesn’t fall over.”

Smith said the tower is being constructed to see if that area is a good spot to put a wind farm up.

It will be there approximately four years.
