Three years after being built, the cell tower in Shandaken at Glenbrook Park will finally become operational.
It was announced at the September Shandaken Town Board meeting that AT&T will erect equipment on the tower.
The news comes on the heels of recent complaints by Shandaken Supervisor Rob Stanley, who noted the frustration of emergency service personnel during the recent Hurricane Irene catastrophe. Evacuating people under the harsh conditions was very difficult without adequate wireless communications, he said.
