Easy, killer. The FCC has been given the authority to regulate communications in this country, not your local village board. How many village boards are there in the US, pick a number, 10,000? Imagine 10,000 different laws regulating your cell phone? Your problems with T-Mobile would be the least of your problems!Under Federal Law the Village Board can't consider enviornmental effects??? What??? You mean the Cell Industry lobbied to have this provision because they know there are negative effects. Find the politician or politicians who got paid off big time and jail them. Just look at who sponsored the legislation and you will have your answer. The law flies in the face of public health and logic and should be challenged. It is almost definite the legislation will be overturned. The Village Board should go to court and request a stay pending a legal challenge. I have had prior experience with T-Mobile. They are the worst outfit out there as far as customer service and being a responsible company. The worst

"Under Federal Law the Village Board can't consider enviornmental effects??? What??? You mean the Cell Industry lobbied to have this provision because they know there are negative effects."
Just plain wrong. Under the Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996 the government deemed that cell phones do have a public utility function and public safety status. Jurisdications can place limitations on where antennas are placed but they cannot look at health effects because the FCC has set stringent regulations, which carriers must adhere to for RF emmissions.
Cell phones are a matter of public safety and without wireless facilities to work with E-911, I guarantee you we'll have people in car accidents all over the place who cannot be found because their locations cannot be properly tracked.
The rooftop of a nursing home is entirely appropriate for antennas, versus having to construct a new facility, which would be met with additional complaints because it would be called an eyesore.
Wake up and live in today's world people!
