GREENVILLE FIRE DEPT TO SEEK ANTENNA POLE AT FIRE HOUSE --POSSIBLE RENT TO GENERATE REVENUE FOR FIRE
Release Date: February 11, 2009

Representatives of the Greenville Fire Department (located in Edgemont) appeared before the Greenburgh Town Board at our Tuesday work session. They are planning to seek permission (and a possible zoning change or variance) so they can place an antenna pole at the fire house. The pole will be used for enhanced communications at the fire house. In addition, the fire house will take advantage of the antenna pole and will rent the pole to  to phone companies -to enhance service to Edgemont residents.
Everytime I drive on Ardsley Road my NEXTEL cell phone stops working. It's frustrating. Cell phone service in Edgemont is horrible.
Everytime a proposal is initiated to place a cell tower in a neighborhood there is opposition. Federal laws limit the ability of governments to say no to cell towers.
The benefit of this proposal -which is in its early stage- is that the rent and revenues will go to the fire district, not a landlord. If we have to have cell towers somewhere doesn't it make sense for local governments to get some revenue from it?  The fire dept will reach out to the immediate neighborhood to seek their comments before finalizing a proposal to the Town Board.  Our work session can be watched on the web--work sessions are streamed and archived: www.greenburghny.com.
