KRKO/Everett-Seattle Gets Tower Permit From County

Sports-Talk KRKO-A/EVERETT, WA-SEATTLE wins its six year battle with the county to build four new towers to improve its signal, as the SNOHOMISH COUNTY COUNCIL voted to approve the station's permit on MONDAY night. The four towers- one at 350 feet, the others at 200 feet- were scaled back from the originally-proposed 8 tower array and encountered local opposition from residents and environmentalists.
Opponents may take the case to court in a last-ditch effort to block tower construction, which they say will damage the aesthetics of the area; the plan also needs to obtain a shoreline development permit.
