CORRALES, N.M. (KRQE) – It appears the village of Corrales has lost a fight to keep a cell phone tower out.
According to the Rio Rancho Observer, a federal appeals court has affirmed a decision to allow AT&T to build a cell tower that is 65 feet tall in the middle of the village. AT&T says it will help fill a major gap in cell coverage there. Residents say it will ruin the landscape.
The mayor of Corrales says they do not plan to file an appeal and will approve AT&T’s application for the tower.
AT&T told the observer now that a decision has been made, the company can decide their next step.
