The DOT communications tower in Pennington County is being replaced.
According to Pennington County Sheriff Ray Kuznia, the tower that carries the sheriff’s department radio system, and paging system is being removed to from it’s location. A new tower, and existing equipment that goes along with it will be moved to the Highway Department building. Sheriff Kuznia says its all part of an upgrade from the Department of Transportation. Kuznia says the DOT system is being removed at the expense of the state.
Kuznia asked the Pennington County Board of Commissioners last week to approve moving equipment tied to the old tower to the new site.
