MOUNT SINAI - Residents on Apricot Road in Mount Sinai say they're frustrated and confused by a 30-foot pole that was erected on a resident?s front lawn two weeks ago.
Lori DeMarco says she was surprised to find out the utility pole was installed by a cell phone company, NextG, and that they did so legally within the Town of Brookhaven's laws.
In a statement, NextG says "the town didn't require permits to do this work, in this site there were no telephone poles so we had to install a tower.?
A town spokesman says Brookhaven's Highway Department is conducting a review with the town attorney's office.
