Tower in FRG

To the Editor:

I was a trustee in Fox River Grove last time AT&T came up with this idea.

We rejected it then, and agreed they could use the ski tower or the water tower, which I believe they are now doing.

The reason for denying at the time was that we were privy to a coverage map of the existing cell towers at the time. Fox River Grove was well covered, and also parts of Barrington Hills, Lake Barrington and Cary.

We also found out the towns surrounding Fox River Grove refused to have the tower built in their area.

Plus constituents opposed it.

As to the economics of cell sites, the village and Norge receive compensation from the sites. If the proposed tower goes up, will the village lose its compensation when AT&T moves and possibly anyone else using the water tower moves?

The only advantage I see is to surrounding towns.
