Holbrook church's neighbors protest cell tower

Holbrook residents are voicing their opposition after a local pastor gave the OK for a cell phone tower to be installed on church property.

The Church of the Good Shepherd?s property joins several residents? backyards. Some say the tower will devalue their own properties, while others are concerned about the health of their children. Still others say revenue from the tower should go to the town and not a tax-exempt entity.

Neighbors say they have more than 30 signatures on a petition against the tower.

The Diocese of Rockville Centre says the decision is purely up to the pastor.
