Cordele -- A tower building company has filed a federal lawsuit against the Crisp County Board of Commissioners, because they turned down their request to build a cell phone tower.

Southeast Towers wants to build a 148 foot tall cell phone tower on Truman Street, which is zoned rural residential.

 Commissioners turned down their construction request July 11th, saying the tower could be a hazard to Cordele Airport Traffic if they decided to expand.

Attorneys for Southeast Towers filed the federal lawsuit last week, demanding a jury trial to force Crisp County Commissioners to O.K. their building permit. The tower building company says there is no cause to turn down their construction.
