Commissioners to Consider Approval of Permit for 56-Foot Wireless Internet Tower

SWEETWATER COUNTY — LR Communications is proposing to construct a 56-foot wireless internet site at 87 Gaensslen Drive, west of Green River, which the Sweetwater County Commission will consider approval of during its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday.

The Commission will meet at 8:30 a.m. on August 16, at the Sweetwater County Courthouse. LR Communications acquired the land from Laurence and Judi Laughter and have applied for a conditional use permit to construct the site.

According to meeting documents, the site will be very similar looking to the existing Mansface Site, which is pictured below. The goal of the site is to help in the expansion of their network. The site will be run off of on-site solar panels only, and no other utility services are expected.

It is proposed to cover roughly 15-feet by 20-feet of ground. At the August 10 Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, the board voted 5-0 to recommend approval, and Sweetwater County Land Use staff recommends approval as well.

Other Business

The Commission will consider approving the publication of the names, positions, and salaries of each full-time county employee and elected officials. Additionally, the Commission will hear an update from the Wyoming Department of Transportation on local projects.

The County Commissioners will also have a discussion regarding a county administrator, which is a position the county does not currently have.
