Verizon Lawsuit Update 01/28/2022
As many of you may know, the City Council voted on December 7, 2021 to deny an application by Verizon Wireless to install a wireless facility on a replacement wood pole on Carmelo Street between 8th Avenue and 9th Avenue. The City Council approved Resolution 2021-084 which I signed denying the Verizon application.
I want to let you know that Verizon filed a lawsuit against the City which challenges the City’s denial of the Carmelo site application and that lawsuit was served on the City yesterday afternoon. The and are available for review. The City will be represented in the lawsuit by Gail Karish of the Best Best & Krieger law firm who has substantial experience with telecommunications law.
