Maberly Rogers Cell Tower.

A Media Release of January 24 updated citizens. As a result of citizen concern  (expressed at the 15th meeting ) over health and aesthetics with the proposed location of the Rogers Cell Tower in Maberly, they together with the company, citizens and landowner have worked cooperatively and have found a new location satisfactory to all.  This will be on higher ground, 700m north of the hamlet. As a result, wireless service for local residents, travellers along Highway #7 and emergency services will be greatly improved. A speedy collaboration to the benefit of the community!
