CAMBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A group seeking to preserve two deteriorating wooden observation towers built in the 1920s in Michigan's Irish Hills has received a reprieve from local officials.

The Daily Telegram of Adrian and MLive.com say the Cambridge Township Board voted 4-0 Wednesday to give the Irish Hills Historical Society 60 days to present a comprehensive plan for the towers. They were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007 but have been closed to the public more than a decade.

Officials estimate repairs to the Irish Hills Towers would cost $300,000. They're in Lenawee County, about 60 miles southwest of Detroit.

Township officials in April declared the towers a nuisance and gave the society until Aug. 1 to make progress on fixing them.
