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 :)

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.

Thanks in Advance
