DERBY â€“ Derby town officials heard more controversy Monday evening over a telecommunications tower proposed by the Vermont Electric Company (VELCO).
Derby residents Sharon and Mark Tarbox, who live near Derbyâ€™s antenna farm at 3557 Nelson Hill Road, expressed concerns about possible health effects from the large tower VELCO wants to install. VELCO officials say the tower will emit a very low amount of emissions, but some residents are concerned over the cumulative emissions from VELCO and other towers as well as from undetermined transmitters that would be put on the tower in the future.
