The project includes the replacement of an existing 70-foot tall field light with a new light pole that is approximately 85-foot high.
At a City Council meeting on July 19, a company representative said the installation includes a small equipment compound at the base of the light pole. Another company representative said wireless signals from the pole will not interfere with other wireless services.
City officials say an agreement with T-Mobile would be a revenue generator but the rental rate has not been negotiated. Public comment on this proposed facility will be accepted until 10 a.m. on July 26.
