The Danbury City Council is being asked tonight to authorize a committee to look into satellite dishes. Danbury officials are looking to crackdown on satellite dish placement, which some say could be an indication of over-occupancy of residential properties.
Mayor Mark Boughton says the City is continuing to implement certain legislation to better residents lives, and a review of regulations about the placement of satellite dishes on structures within Danbury is the next initiative. An ordinance is under development and will be completed soon.
His concern is about what he called the excessive and unbridled proliferation of such devices with no recognition of structural, safety and aesthetic integrity. Boughton noted that potential over-occupancy continues to be a major safety issue and processes are pending that will address that specific concern.
