phone call from Chx County Rd commission, Norwood Twp ZA asking what our antenna language was. 8.03.13 talks about towers. Twp lawyer said that anything that receives and transmits need a permit. Height does not matter. COLI has been putting up towers. A temporary one has been put up on Richardson road, planning to put a permanent one in the spring, which will be on Chx County right of way.
