Unapproved Cell Tower Gone, At Least for Now

The AT&T tower that was put up without permission has been removed, report says.

A cell phone tower that mysteriously popped up in Ridgewood several months ago has been taken down. But, according to a NorthJersey.com report, it may soon be back, and this time with permission to be there.

AT&T has submitted an application to the village’s zoning board to have the temporary tower placed back where it was, near an Exxon Mobil gas station on Route 17, the report said.

According to the report, the 100-foot tower was moved after conversations between the village and AT&T’s attorney. 

Village officials had been unaware of the tower until a resident complained about it at a zoning board meeting last month. The village issued summonses for land use violations to AT&T because the company did not have permission to place the tower in the village.

AT&T representatives say they hope to work with the town to find a permanent place for the tower, though they have not submitted an application for a permanent tower, the report said.

Idiots. That tower did more for local citizens than anything else the town has ever done, so they order it removed because some loser with nothing better to do all day called it out.
