Exeter Closer to Permanent Cell Tower
A permanent Verizon tower is still awaiting final approval next month but rezoning approval brought the tower project one step closer to reality.
According to a representative from Verizon who was present at the hearing, the temporary tower that is now in place at the Exeter football field will be moved to Milligan once the new tower is completed and working. It was estimated the construction would be complete mid-July.
The Exeter Village board reviewed the recommendations made by the Fillmore County Zoning Commission and had the option to approve or deny the recommendations by the zoning commission. The zoning change to a conditional use only was approved but no resolution was made. The second part of the hearing was to approve the application for the conditional use permit to construct a 105’ cell tower. The board will vote on the resolution next month.
Willard Meyer Recreation Area near Tobias was crawling with Cub Scouts and their families as the Prairie Winds District of the Cornhusker Council held their first annual Cub Scout Camporee last weekend.
Over 150 Cub Scouts and their family members descended on Swan Lake for the overnight camping at the LBNRD area. Almost all of the scouts from Pack 218 in Exeter attended. Friday evening the scouts and families gathered at a community campfire to sing songs, perform skits and have s’mores.
Scouts from Seward, York, Geneva, Utica, Friend, Exeter, Milligan, and Fairbury attended the event.
The Exeter Aquatic Center got a new green and gold sign recently. It is mounted on the north wall of the poolhouse.
