Tower Construction on Hold Due to City’s Lawsuit Against County

The county officials of St. Louis, Missouri have put off construction on an emergency cell tower due to a lawsuit that the city of Sunset Hills filed against the county. The city filed the lawsuit on September 4th to get a preliminary injunction against the construction of the communications tower.  The county owns the land where the potential site is for the tower to be built.

“As proposed, the emergency communications tower would be one of roughly 25 towers being located throughout the county as part of St. Louis County's new emergency communications network.  In its suit, Sunset Hills claims St. Louis County lacks the authority to construct and operate the tower within the city without approval from city officials,” the Call reported.

The city officials want the county to look for other locations that would be better for the cell site. The judge has schedule a trail Friday to determine the outcome.
