We went and built 4 towers (rohn 25g, 50 footers each) on an island where we needed to setup a wireless Backbone around the island.
The town came blasting guns, we threw OTARD at them and they bought it. My partner's a good sales guy, though :) We ended up paying $250 per tower in fines, and the $75 permit fee, and we went on our way. YMMV :) -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Owen Harrell Sent: Wednesday, May 31, 2006 1:23 PM To: WISPA General List Subject: [WISPA] Towers and the Law I hope someone can help me on this. I believe that back in 1997 or 1998 a law was passed that prevented local governments from preventing tower construction that would provide Internet service to remote areas. If anyone knows of such a law or could at least point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. I am in the process of getting permits for new towers and I would just like to be prepared in the unlikely case that the county was to turn me down for my permits.
