Amanda Cooley, Powell County Planner and Ann O'Toole, GIS Tech, and a Planning Office administrative assistant describe the location of the newly permitted cell phone tower in the Ovando area.

Bridger Tower Corporation's application for placing a cell phone tower near Highway 200, approximately 4.2 miles west of Ovando on the north side of Highway 200 was approved with one nay at the Powell County Planning Board public meeting Sept. 7.

The project now moves on to the Powell County Commissioners for final approval. The application for the conditional use permit is for a 195 foot tall cell tower supported with three sets of guy wires. The height of 195 feet is 30 feet taller than Big Gus, the largest western larch tree located near Seeley Lake.
