Although the City Council agreed with the Mayor to reject T-Mobile’s request to rent space atop the City’s Municipal Water Tower, “that doesn’t mean the company couldn’t pursue other locations inside the city limits, Beck told council,” quoting the Nisqually Valley News (NVN).
“For the amount of money and with access and maintenance issues, ‘It wasn’t worth it,’ Harding said Wednesday.
‘I have nothing against cell towers,’ [Yelm Mayor] Harding said, ‘but if they want to put one in town, they can go through the site plan review like everyone else.'”
This will not be the last time the city is propositioned to rent municipal space to cellphone companies, what with the city’s projected doubling of population in 5 years. The $$$ will be sugar-plum fairies dancing around in these companys’ heads.
