Curtin is right our property value will go down if tower is built.

Farmingville Fire Commissioner
July 13, 2009
To Commissioners John Caputo, Norman Neill, Robert Wallace and Rob Heller
At our last meeting on June 22, 2009 a representative from T-Mobile was
present and we all received a tentative contract for the installation of a cell tower
on the grounds of fire headquarters. I have two major concerns about this
1.) I could not find where it states the height of this tower.
2.) I questioned this contract being signed by only one commissioner who
currently does not sit on the Board of Fire Commissioners any more.
I had the secretary review past minutes and he could not find any minutes
where a motion was made, second and carried to erect this cell tower. As of this
date, we do not know who voted to enter into this agreement.
Before I openly and publicly campaign against this project, I am asking the
board to make a motion and vote to not continue with this cell tower project
at headquarters. I believe the cons outweigh the pros of this project. The
resident who live near the fire house will see their property value decline and the
fire district recently installed a 125 foot tower at station 2 to help improve radio
If members of this board support this project, then a motion should be
made and carried and a record should be made to continue with this project.
Thank you for your time on this important matter.
Stephen Curtin, Fire Commissioner
