SC Council Considers More Cell Towers, Logan's Law is Signed, SPM, 5:32

050619 532

The Sioux City Council will be asked today to approve site plans for three U.S. Cellular cell towers.  The network build-out is part of the telecommunications company's expansion into Sioux City. U.S. Cellular said last month that it expects to add about 30 total cell sites in Sioux City and the surrounding area, with only five being new tower builds within the city. 

In February, the council denied U.S. Cellular's site plan for a 130-foot cell tower at 2015 W. Sixth St. because the site plan failed to meet setback requirements. 

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts visited a Lincoln auto repair shop today to call for lawmakers to "put the brakes on taxing Nebraska families."

Legislative Bill 289, as put forth by the Revenue Committee last week, seeks to cut property taxes by raising the sales tax rate, applying sales tax to several more services and increasing other taxes.

It would drive down property taxes by boosting state school aid and imposing tighter budget and tax limits on schools.

The bill named after a Charles City teen who died after sustaining brain injuries in an ATV accident is now law.

The law will let people signal their intentions to be an organ and tissue donor when they buy a hunting or fishing license. Governor Kim Reynolds was in Logan Luft’s hometown this morning to sign what has become known as Logan’s Law.
