FAIRFIELD N.Y.- A meeting was held in the Town of Fairfield about a proposed AT&T cell tower on Route 169 Thursday.
The tower would be on Route 169 in Fairfield, and it would improve cell coverage in the area between Little Falls and Middleville.
Thursday evening, the public was able to attend the meeting at Fairfield Community Hall to voice their opinions.
Only five people showed up, and the meeting was over in less than 20 minutes.
Everyone who attended the meeting said yes to the proposed tower, and the Town of Fairfield zoning board of appeals voted 3-0 to approve the first step in the process.
Brenda Blask-Lewis, a Site Acquisition Consultant with Centerline Communications, one of the five who attended the meeting tells NEWSChannel 2 she's very happy with the vote and outcome.
"We're waiting for approvals by NEPA and Chippo, and then we're pretty much ready to wrap it up, and hand it off to the construction company. Everybody was in favor, I'm very happy. It's a very targeted area, (and) AT&T is looking to improve their coverage in the area so that's the main goal." said Blask-Lewis.
Letters were sent to the neighboring property owners to make them aware of the project.
The next steps are up to AT&T to get the project organized and in motion.
No word yet on if construction will happen, but there's a possibility construction could start by the end of the year.
