From the Eagle Tribune;

Atkinson, town consider tower plan

ATKINSON, N.H. — Town officials told SBA Tower II they want the company to stop making changes to the Hog Hill tower without their permission.

SBA Tower met with selectmen last night to discuss its proposal to add three flush-mounted antennas to the 160-foot communications tower.

But selectmen said that before voting on the proposal, the company needs to assure Atkinson officials they will adhere to the agreement with the town.

For years, previous owners of the tower have made changes, not followed through with required inspections, and failed to landscape the property as proposed. SBA Tower purchased the tower from Mariner Tower in 2007.

Selectman Bill Bennett said the tower's previous owners did not have annual inspections done by the town.

Attorney Steven Grill, who represents SBA Tower II, told selectmen that the company with follow through with its responsibilities even though the previous owners did not.

"This is not just more of the same, we're committed to doing it the right way," Grill said.

The latest proposal is almost identical to the one denied a special exception by the town's Zoning Board of Adjustment in March 2007.

SBA Tower II filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in September 2007, but a federal judge ruled in September 2008 that it was up to selectmen to decide the case. The zoning board issued its decision when the 50-year-old tower was owned by Mariner Tower.

Abutters also say they were concerned about changes to the tower.

Resident Karen Donnelly said she's frustrated there have been changes to the tower without the town's permission. There are frequently people working on the tower day and night, and Donnelly said she never knows who they are or what they're doing.

"I've sat here for 11 years and heard, 'We'll do better, we'll do better,'" Donnelly said.

Grill said the tower company will make a presentation on proposed changes to the tower before selectmen prior to a public hearing Aug. 17. The presentation and hearing were to be last night but rescheduled because the company was not ready.

Yup, EMPTY SUIT is back. Can't discuss the issues so he posts foolishness. Wonder if this suit has a badge on it or just one of the other plaintiffs?

This is by far the most stupid thing I have ever seen! Obviously someone has far too much time on their hands. Please, please come out of the woodwork and help those of us who don't fully grasp the whats, wheres, and howevers of the tower proposal to reach a better understanding of it. We are not all geniuses.

Hey, what do you expect of defendants in a major lawsuit? If this is an example of how they run our town, then it's time to vote them out of office.

In the case of Phil, well since the selectmen don't appoint him, it's time to make it an elected position. That would bring a nice clean sweeping change to town government.
