An effort is under way to place a referendum on the November ballot to see if Pownal residents want additional cell phone towers. Suzanne Caraman says people have been voicing a need for cell phone towers to improve service for some time. She says an interruption in telephone service last month sparked the petition.
Nearly every household in town was without phone service for more than eight hours after a contractor apparently severed an underground phone line. Caraman says it’s time to let the town know how valuable cell phone towers can be in Pownal.
Select board members suggested a petition to see how much interest there is in installing more towers.
