County looking for solutions to tower problem
PRINCETON – The Bureau County Board continues to look at what can be done to protect the county jail’s communication tower from lightning strikes.
At Tuesday’s meeting, the county board voted unanimously to hire E & S Grounding Solutions of California to do a field work study on the grounding grid system at the base of the tower, located directly behind the county jail. The California company will complete testing of the grounding grid, write an interpretation of the test results, and complete a site work plan. The cost to the county for the work is $9,650, which includes travel expenses.
On Thursday, Buildings and Grounds Committee Chairman Kristi Warren said the tower has been hit by lightning three times in recent years, with the last time, in April, causing the most extensive damage.
