This week were introducing You Asked, a new feature that will run occasionally in the Blue Mountain Eagle. Readers can send in those nagging questions about things they see around the county that beg for some answers.
A bit of advice: Keep your questions to specific topics This isnt the format for Whats wrong with Congress? thats way, way too broad.
This week, well get started with:
Q : Whats that new road zig-zagging up the hill on on the northeast side of Prairie City?
A:That road zig-zagging up the hill on the northeast side of Prairie City leads to a new cell tower for American Tower, an independent owner and operator of wireless and broadcast communication sites. According to city recorder Diane Clingman, the City of Prairie Citys lease was originally with AT&T, before being assigned to American Tower. The citys initial term is for five years at $900 per month. The tower is on city property, with the access road on private land by contract with American Tower.
