Horry County resident, T-Mobile rep voice opposing views on telecommunications tower

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - An Horry County resident and T-Mobile representative voiced their opposing views on the installation of a telecommunications tower at a council meeting Tuesday.

The tower would be located off Highway 544 and Todd Boulevard.

William Wood spoke during public input. He asked council to view the area before approving the permit. Wood claimed there is land located nearby that would be better suited for the tower and away from residents.

Jonathan Yates, a T-Mobile representative, claimed the tower would be “most visually pleasing” and would pose “no light, no odor, no fumes” on the 1.3-acre property.

“Apparently, college kids love cell phones. [The installation of the tower] would rectify the problem,” he argued.

The tower measures 145 feet in height, according to Yates. The tower could be installed in 30-45 days and telecommunications crews would be required to service the tower four to five times annually, Yates said.

“[The tower would] provide necessary coverage to the campus, students and residents in the area, and serve as a solution to a very important problem,” Yates added.
