We've got a special meeting all about big poles – the Crown Castle affair…

Residents have been upset at the prospect of big poles with large equipment boxes stapled to the side being put up around town, including many in front of homes.

Do you have a view on these big poles? Post a comment or send a letter to the publisher.
