Pierce Township Trustees negotiate for second cell tower

Shortly after the completion of a cell tower in a Pierce Township Park, the trustees are in negotiations to construct a second cell tower on township property.

According to township administrator David Elmer, the township has negotiated with T-Mobile to install the new tower, but haven’t completed any agreements yet. However, the decision could be made as early as next week.

“I’ll present to the board a lease agreement at the Jan. 9 trustee meeting,” said Elmer. “In general, the comments from the public has been a concern about towers with a light on them. They don’t want the light.”

Previously, a Cincinnati Bell tower was constructed in one of the township parks. However, the proposed tower will not be located near that one, but will be located near another communications tower.
