MARSHFIELD, WI (WSAU) City officials in Marshfield have given a green light to the construction of a new Wood County Emergency Management communications tower. Josh Miller is director of planning and zoning for the city, and says the tower should eliminate emergency communication “problem areas” on Marshfield’s northwest side.

Original concerns over the tower presenting a possible obstruction for aircraft like the “Spirit of Marshfield” helicopter were somewhat mitigated by shortening the tower’s height to 156 ft. The county will also build a 288 square foot equipment building in conjunction with that new tower.
