Pittsfield City Council Asks for Assistance With Cell Tower Concerns

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday passed three petitions asking multiple state and local entities to look into the possible effects of cell tower radiation.

Ward 1 Councilor Kenneth Warren and Ward 4 Councilor James Conant requested that the state and federal delegation is notified of the council's position on the negative health effects of cell tower radiation and that the Massachusetts Municipal Association, particularly Mayors Association President Linda Tyer and Councillors Association President Lisa Blackmer of the North Adams City Council, are contacted for assistance in dealing with them.

Conant pointed out that this has been an issue for some time and said the city has no answers on its health implications.

"This is just an effort to communicate to state and federal officials that we're looking for information to help guide all of us on where we can go and what we can do for this," he explained.

"But I'll make this very clear: I do not support any litigation or lawsuit of any type. This is just an effort to communicate and get information from a state and federal level because our hands are tied by the FCC."

Warren added that they are asking for people at different levels to assist the city with investigating the type of concerns raised and whether they are an issue that needs to be dealt with.
