Winchester Approves Cell Tower Permit
13 September 2018 News
The 6-3 vote Tuesday forwarded the CUP request for the tower with the stipulation that it include a bank of lights for the Lester P. Singhass BMX Track, which it would be built next to. However, councilors objected to the franchise agreement Shentel proposed for the tower, which would net Winchester $622,800 over the course of a 20-year-lease, an offer Councilor Evan Clark described as low. Despite this objection, Councilor Milt McInturff claimed that an experienced source told him the offer was on par with money paid for tower leases in the 1990s. The Council voted 8-1 to table the matter of the franchise proposal until its next work session on September 25th.
