The September 8th major wind event caused significant damage to several county facilities including the county Road Department salt shed, the County Fairgrounds, and the county owned TV tower. Unfortunately the TV tower was a complete loss. The cost to replace the TV tower is estimated at over $100,000. The county does not currently have a budget appropriation to cover this cost. Although Morgan County is not required to provide a TV repeater tower by state or federal statute, the costs for maintaining the tower in the past have been covered by tax payers as a convenience to residents of the County. We are looking into various sources of funding to cover the cost of replacement as well as alternatives which may include not replacing the tower at this time. If funding is able to be secured, it may take several weeks or months for materials to be obtained and the work to be completed. We do not expect to have the TV tower operational within the next couple of months at a minimum. We do understand this is an inconvenience for many county residents, we encourage residents to look for alternative options for television viewing including online sources.
