HUNTINGTON - Although some people believe that cell phone towers affect health negatively, there are others who are protesting a proposed moratorium on them in the Town of Huntington.
Huntington and Huntington Station residents are in the middle of a debate on whether the Town of Huntington should put a temporary ban on the construction of cell phone towers in their area. Town officials say the code has not been updated since 2003.
If the 90-day moratorium is approved, it will not include municipalities. Councilman Mark Cuthbertson says that residents will be able to object to any proposals the Town of Huntington may enter regarding the construction of a cell tower.
There will be a public hearing on the moratorium tomorrow at the town hall at 6 p.m.
Cuthberston says that a vote on the issue is not expected until sometime in February.
