Cell tower gets final OK

January 20, 2009

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Washington Township Supervisors, on a 3-1 vote Monday, gave land development approval to a cell phone tower in Blue Ridge Summit, Pa.

Representatives of Liberty Towers said construction could begin in two to three weeks and last less than 30 days.

The supervisors approved a galvanized pole, rather than requiring the tower to be painted. Supervisor John Gorman voted "no" because he preferred a brown pole.

The months of negotiations and presentations pushed the project out of several wireless carriers' capital budget cycles, representatives of Liberty Towers said. That means negotiations need to start over, they said.

Voting in favor were supervisors Elaine Gladhill, Christopher Firme and Carroll Sturm. Stephen Kulla was absent.

The tower will be built on property owned by the Pen Mar Youth League.
