Still no decision on cell tower construction next to Ezzell school

The Ezzell school district is waiting to hear from a Lavaca County District Court judge about whether construction of an AT&T cell tower near the school will continue.

The Ezzell school district will have to wait over the weekend to find out whether a cell tower under construction near its school building will continue to be built.

A Lavaca County judge has not yet issued a ruling in the district’s effort to stop its construction.

The Ezzell school district, located on Farm-to-Market Road 531, requested a temporary injunction to have an unfinished AT&T cell tower moved to another location. The tower is on privately owned land less than 350 feet from the school.

District officials and parents are petitioning to have the cell tower moved farther from the school out of fear of potential health risks to its students.

The school district and the owner of the land, Frances Elaine Heinemann of Cuero, spoke before Lavaca County 25th’s District Court Judge Jessica Richard Crawford on Wednesday during a hearing.

Crawford had not issued a decision as of 5 p.m. Friday.
