The Milton City Council will consider revamping its cell tower ordinance Wednesday, placing more restrictions on telecommunications companies wishing to add to the skyline.
The revisions come as the city nears the end of a 60-day moratorium on cell tower applications. In late April, the city granted T-Mobile South permission to build a cellphone tower, but with restrictions, and turned down the company's request to build two other towers.
The revised ordinance adds restrictions requiring the applicant to demonstrate a need for the new tower through a study signed by a Georgia licensed engineer. It also calls for detailed line-of-sight studies and requires applicants to pay a standard fee and be liable for up to $7,500 in engineering or consulting costs incurred by the city.
The meeting is at 6 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall.
