WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A proposed 150-foot cell phone tower could be placed on school property in West Lafayette.
A Verizon employee was at Wednesday night's West Lafayette Community Schools Corporation (WLCSC) board meeting to see if the board would have any interest in a tower.
It would bring in extra money for the district, but there are some concerns about how neighbors would feel about it.
"We're going to explore all options. We want community input. There won't be a decision made on this until we know how our community members feel," said WLCSC Superintendent Rocky Killion.
The board also approved the school budget for next year and remodeling plans for West Lafayette Junior/Senior High School.
The $1.1 million remodel will open up some classrooms and make the building more secure.
Construction is slated to begin after Spring Break and be done by the start of the next school year.
Money to pay for the project is available through a previous bond.
The Hoosier Heartland Highway has three new signs honoring three Tippecanoe County veterans.
Lafayette is named one of the nation's top cities for producing and sustaining jobs.
