Last week Plymouth Clerk Treasurer Janine Xaver spoke before the Board of Public Works and Safety asking members to review the regulations they set forth earlier this year pertaining to the possible installation of micro cells in the city.
While City Engineer Rick Gaul had prepared stricter guidelines including placement, the board approved a document prepared by the city attorney that was not as regulated. Xaver told the Board of Work that companies currently have the opportunity to install 5-foot poles with wide bases in the city’s right-of-way including historic Michigan Street. She said some of these poles could be place right in front of homes that are on the historic registry.
The micro cells provide an upgrades internet service in residential areas.
City Councilman Jeff Houin asked Xaver to email a copy of the agreement they approved to members of the Board of Public Works and Safety for review.
