Bethel lawmakers back bill to require local representation on Siting Council

Some Greater Danbury area municipal officials have raised concerns in the past about not being able to have a say in the decision on cell tower placements.  Now the state legislature is considering a measure requiring local representation via nonvoting members of the Siting Council for certain projects.  Bethel Representatives Raghib Allie-Brennan and Stephen Harding have signed on as cosponsors.  In Danbury several years ago, there was a proposal for a rooftop cell tower on an existing apartment building and the company petitioned for a ruling that no Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need was required.  New Milford officials have filed an appeal with the Connecticut Siting Council over their ruling to allow Ameresco's 20-megawatt solar farm on Candlewood Mountain to go forward.
