Angola Board of Public Works and Safety Discusses Action On Radio Tower Lease
Tuesday, November 5, 2019

The Angola Board of Public Works and Safety gathered on Monday evening to discuss and consider action on a radio tower lease.

The Board heard from legal council Kim Shoup in regards to a radio tower located on city property. The City and Trine University entered into a lease agreement in 2007 to erect and use the tower.

Trine University has recently sold the tower to a Christian radio company, Star Educational Media Network. Discussion was in regards to constitutional considerations of the separation of church and state. Kim Shoup spoke on the potential slippery slope of such a contract.

The City and Star Educational Media Network will discuss options moving forward to satisfy both parties.

The Board of Public Works and Safety will gather again on Monday, December 2nd at 6:30pm.
