Ellsworth Authority buys first easement


The Ellsworth Authority purchases an easement property off Hillsview Drive, which is a step forward in clearing a hazard zone.
The purpose for the Authority buying the easements is to keep people safe.

At issue is an area in a crash zone, which can also experience ear damaging noise of more than 70 decibels.

Box Elder Mayor William Griffiths says that is a big step forward in keeping Ellsworth Air force Base off a future closure list.

"Our concern is the whole area, we want to protect our families, and we want to protect Ellsworth. This is not just for Box Elder, it's about keeping Ellsworth open," says Griffith.

Griffiths says there are between 400 and 500 properties, both residential and commercial in the hazard zone.
