Judge orders Irondequoit to approve controversial cellular tower | News
A U.S. District Court Judge, the Hon. Charles Siragusa, has ordered the town of Irondequoit to approve Verizon’s application for a special-use permit to allow construction of a proposed 120-foot monopole behind the St. Paul Boulevard firehouse at 233 Cooper Road.
In a 22-page decision dated Jan. 31, which the Post obtained today, Siragusa also indicates that the court will retain jurisdiction over the matter “to enforce the injunction” that the cellular tower be built.
Attorney Robert Koegel of the Remington, Gifford, Williams and Colicchio law firm in Rochester represented the town in the matter.
He said late this morning that the town has until early March to appeal Siragusa’s decision to the Court of Appeals, but has not yet made a decision.
