CUPs Approved for Cell Towers, Antiques Business

Sheridan County commissioners this week approved conditional use permits for a new cell tower, continued operation of a second tower, and construction of additional retail space for an antiques business.

Action came during the commissioners' meeting.

All three permits were granted by 5 to zero vote of commissioners, and there were no protesters at the meeting. The county planning and zoning commission recommended approval of all three permits.

The new cell tower, to be owned and operated by Verizon Wireless, will be on land owned by Gary and Vicki Jo Koltiska on their ranch near Clearmont. According to Verizon, the site will strengthen coverage along US Highway 14/16 and in Clearmont, and will add cell phone capacity to the area.

The continued tower also is owned and operated by Verizon, and has been in use, and is on the Sheeley Ranch near Dayton. Verizon officials say the site will be needed only until a permanent tower can be built inside the town of Dayton.

The third permit was granted to Neltje for construction and use of additional retail space for the existing Turned Antiques business at 1 Lower Piney Road.
