Sherman Oaks Residents Want T-Mobile Cell Phone Tower, Erected In The 'Wee Hours,' Taken Down
Some Sherman Oaks residents want to disconnect this call.
Another day another cell-phone tower controversy in Los Angeles, this time in Sherman Oaks.
We recently told you how neighbors at a tower site near Beverly Hills became enraged by what they saw as an un-permitted move by AT&T at 125 North Doheny Drive. Those opponents eventually won that battle.
In Sherman Oaks, NBC4 reports, neighbors say T-Mobile made a sneaky move and erected its mobile tower in a residential neighborhood in the wee hours when nobody could attempt to block it.
See NBC4's video report here.
Protesters, concerned about possible radiation in a residential area filled with families, say they will fight to have the 4G tower removed.
They say neighbors never received a required letter that would have warned them before the tower went up.
