CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The Jefferson County Board of Zoning Appeals rescheduled a hearing on an appeal of a Planning Commission decision to allow U.S. Cellular to build a 260-foot-high tower in the middle of a Civil War battlefield.
The hearing was to have been held Thursday, but the Zoning Appeals Board did not have enough members present to hear the case.
One member was absent, and another recused himself because he had been involved in litigation against a cellular phone tower in Shepherdstown, W.Va. A third member had been in business with the previous owner of the site.
