From the Queens Gazette:
Continuing his fight against the placement of cellphone towers in residential neighborhoods, City Councilmember Peter Vallone Jr. has proposed legislation requiring homeowners with cell towers on their buildings to notify the cell company when the Department of Buildings schedules an inspection.
The bill would apply only to buildings six stories or more in height and is aimed at protecting DOB inspectors and building residents from certain equipment that would otherwise remain in operation during the inspection.
“If a property owner enters into an agreement with a cell carrier, then it should also be his or her responsibility to notify the carrier when the equipment must be turned off temporarily for city inspections,” Vallone said (D–Astoria).
Why is the equipment more dangerous for the people living there only when the inspector comes?
