Greg Sitek, president of Upper Mountain Fire Com,pany signed a lease with the county to rent fire company land for a 221 foot tower. He has said, prior to the advent of the lawsuit, that his company’s primary goal in accepting the tower was to ensure first responders have adequate emergency radio communications.
NYPA land (arrow) has been mentioned as possible site of tower.

These aerial pictures with (below) and without (above) a super imposed tower - which has fallen. It is unlikely that a tower will fall but it is not impossible.

Some, but not all, of the near neighbors consider the installation of a 221 foot tower on Fire Company property to be an unkind gesture feeling not unlike what this man thought of his neighbor shaping his evergreen bush in this artistic way.

This story is coming soon.
