AT&T Attorney: 'I Will Come Back with an Army'; Cell Antenna Hearing Set for Dec. 19

November 22, 2013 at 12:25 AM

CHATHAM, NJ - It was a brief skirmish, but the battle lines were drawn Thursday night between residents and AT&T proponents for placing cell antennas on the water tower on Buxton Road at the Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting.

Although she was not confrontational, AT&T attorney Judy Fairweather promised, "I will come back with an army (of experts)" for the Dec. 19 hearing before the board. In the meantime, a site inspection for the board was set for Dec. 7 at 9:30 a.m.

The Weisgerber family of Huron Drive, opposed to the antennas, have hired attorney Robert F. Simon to represent them. He was promised he would have a chance to cross-examine the AT&T experts at the Dec. 19 hearing.

The small room was filled for the meeting, with residents lining up in the hallway to hear the proceedings. Stephen H. Shaw, attorney for the board, said that the Dec. 19 hearing would be held in a larger room at the municipal building.

Tony Gualtieri, engineer for AT&T, explained the plan, noting that there are no cell towers being built, but that 12 "small refrigerator" size boxes would be installed at the sight. Gualtieri said that computer equipment would be in the boxes, so the only noise generated would be similar to the sounds produced by a laptop.

Closed Fund Open Mind

Closed-end funds (CEFs) can play an important role in a diversified investment portfolio. They offer benefits similar to those of an open-end mutual fund, but also sport unique advantages.  

Unlike a traditional open-end mutual fund, CEFs have a fixed number of shares available to trade. Their price is not tied to the value of the underlying portfolio. The only way the number of shares ...
