Announcements (Updated 3/8/11)
We have officially selected a location for the current tower. We will be working with the Augusta County Service Authority to place the tower on the Augusta County Landfill. Unfortunately this means that currently we have no more towers available at this time. Those who had submitted applications should be expecting an email in the near future to discuss next steps and the future opportunities with the program. If you have any questions please call Kenny Howell.
