Belington Zoning Board Approves New Cell Phone Tower

Posted: Updated:

The Belington Zoning Board has given its approval to a new cell phone tower in the city.

Verizon wants to build the tower on private property within the city limits to improve cell phone service in the county.

The board said they took many different factors into account before giving the project a go.

"What is to the best benefit of the town? Also taking a look at the City of Belington's strategic plan and again, what the citizens, what would benefit the citizens the most," said Alan Coberly, of the Belington Zoning Board.

The ruling now goes to the Belington City Council for final approval at its meeting Thursday night.
