PLEASANT VALLEY — Following a contentious meeting in November 2012 regarding the possible construction of a cell tower, Verizon Wireless went back to the drawing board and on Wednesday came back before the Pleasant Valley City Council to request a permit to build in Kingmont.

The permit request was approved.

According to code enforcement manager John Miller, who reviewed the application, the proposed tower was in compliance with all of Pleasant Valley’s ordinances, with the exception of a request to waive a $25,000 bond that would go toward the decommissioning of the tower in the event that it was no longer needed.

He walked council through the ordinances that Verizon had to satisfy in order to build a tower at 448 Kramer Lane.
