GREENBURGH, N.Y. - A public hearing on a wireless networking company's plan to install 20 antennas throughout Greenburgh will continue at a special Town Board meeting Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall.
The proposal by NextG Networks was heavily criticized by some residents and town officials during a lengthy hearing three weeks ago, when a high ranking NextG official accused the town of violating the federal Telecommunications Act of 1996 by stringing along the application for more than two years.
Peter Heimdahl maintained NextG, whose primary customer for the project is MetroPCS, should not be held to Greenburgh's wireless law since it was an infrastructure provider, not a service provider.
NextG provides technology for MetroPCS in White Plains, New Rochelle and Rye and is seeking special permits for antennas in unincorporated Greenburgh, including several in residential areas.
The Town Board is also expected to receive a final report from its consultant HDR Architecture and Engineering, P.C. The board is not expected to take any action on Tuesday on NextG's application. Its next regularly scheduled voting meeting is March 20.
