During Monday night’s County Council meeting, Montgomery County residents expressed concerns about plans to erect new 30-foot cell towers in residential neighborhoods to broaden cell service and connectivity in the county, according to WDCW-TV. Those concerns focused on RF emitted from those towers.
“How would you or the Chair of the FCC feel if we held a cell phone up to their child’s head 24/7? We feel that kind of passion, I feel that about my children, my neighbor’s children, about all these people here, so how can we fight them?” asked one of the audience members during the public hearing, reported WDCW-TV.
County officials said they have been working to update RF standards while trying to find ways to make the plan for the new towers more compatible with neighborhoods.
