“Verizon Wireless made a presentation to the Rainier city council asking permission to build a cell phone tower at the citys water tower site on Minnesota Street.
The proposal was to either build an antenna on the tower or build an antenna adjacent to the water tower to increase Verizons coverage in the Rainier area.
Nextel presented a similar plan a few years ago, but the council succumbed to an organized protest of the tower that drew actress Linda Evans, among others.
Verizon made the proposal during a council meeting Tuesday [Jan. 27].
Verizon representative Tom Johnson said it is Verizons impression that public opinion may have changed,” quoting the NVN.
CELL TOWER RADIATION EFFECTS ON THE HUMAN BODY
In May, 2007 when the Clearwood Community was discussing the potential of a cell tower there, I asked then-area resident (now deceased) Bioengineer and former Radiation Health Physicist Carroll Cobbs to share his experience in the context of a cell tower discussion. Nothing has changed since then about the dangers of electro-magnetic fields on human tissue. In fact, even more information has been released that supports Mr. Cobbs’ research.
