GREENBURGH, N.Y.-- The town of Greenburgh is appealing a court order that says it must issue permits to install 20 cell-phone antennas on utility poles in residential neighborhoods, according to an article in the Westchester County Business Journal .

Crown Castle International Corp. of Houston filed an application in November 2009 to install an antenna system that would help resolve dead spots in the area via a local subsidiary, NextG Networks of NY Inc., according to the article.

The Town Board rejected the application in July of 2012. NextG Networks sued the town for failing to comply with federal statutes that require a response within a reasonable time.

U.S. District Judge Cathy Seibel agreed with NextG Networks in a ruling handed down on July 3.
