The POA held a public comment meeting on January 14 on whether to pursue a lease with Commnet Wireless and install a 150ft cell phone tower near the Kit Carson Rod and Gun Club and Camper Village. One Board member said that one would need a Phd to grasp the information, so we’d have to trust Comnet and the FCC. Attendees at the meeting weren’t so quick to trust.  Reminiscent of the hard-fought battles over tobacco and asbestos, information on the health impacts of cell phone towers is coming out. The Eagle will have a two-part report covering the legal playing field as well as the health consequences and potential impact for our community in the February issue, on the stands on January 29.
