Can you hear me now?

Representatives from contractor Bechtel recently checked on one-year permit deadlines for the five AT&T cell tower construction sites approved this spring, County Administrator John McCarthy said Wednesday. Told that two permits expire in April and two in June and July, McCarthy said, the Bechtel agent felt filing for extensions would be unnecessary.

“They haven’t given me a date yet,” McCarthy said, “but they say they’ll start construction in the first quarter of next year and once they start they will go very fast. How fast, I am not sure.”
