A conditional use to allow two communication towers in an area of the county with mobile phone coverage issues were the first items covered during last week’s Board of Commissioners meeting.

A 280-foot telecommunication tower on Highway 18 West across from the Plentitude Church Road intersection was the first item on the April 1 agenda, and a 295-foot tower on Round Oak-Juliette Road across from the Caney Creek Road intersection was number two.

Both items were approved unanimously. Providence Real Estate Consulting LLC submitted the applications on behalf of AT&T.

The first new business item was a safety presentation by Jones County’s safety compliance officer, Charles Cook.

Cook told board members that, over the past three years, workers comp premiums have been reduced by 31 percent, which is directly related to the county’s safety program.
