Town of Inlet residents and board members gathered last Tuesday and discussed several issues at their latest meeting, including updates on the tower project.
In the latest news on the tower, Town of Inlet Supervisor John Frey said a memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed with a private land owner, giving access to use the land and build a tower.
Officials say the next step is to have the town attorney draft a lease and meet with the Adirondack Park Agency and conduct a balloon test. According to officials, the balloon test will determine if one tall tower will be sufficient, or if there will be a need for two smaller ones.
If all four major cell carriers wish to use the tower, officials say there will need to be two towers.
Frey suggested to the board the construction of a lattice tower, rather than a pole tower, but also said that will be left for the APA to decide.
