PUTNEY, Vt. (AP) - The town of Putney is not going to support a proposal to erect a temporary, 85-foot cell tower in the village of the southern Vermont community.
The select board and the Planning Commission discussed a request by AT&T as the company prepares to apply to the Public Service Board for a permit.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports AT&T wants to put up the temporary tower for up to 18 months, although the company has not been able to promise that the tower would come down if a permanent location can't be found.
The company says it is trying to find a location for a permanent tower.
The Public Service Board approves or rejects cell tower applications.
