Cell tower coming to Century

The Century Town Council voted Monday night to approve Diamond Communications' request for a variance from the 200-foot setback requirement from the lot line of any residence or school in order to construct a cell tower.

This 5G cell tower will have provisions for 3G and 4G, according to the representative who called in and does not present any health effects, a concern expressed by Councilwoman Brenda Spencer.

He said the tower is designed to bend if bad weather threatens, and that it has a fall zone.

Diamond was contracted to build the tower for AT&T, the primary tenant, he said.
