Ken Fellman, Esq., special counsel for telecommunications law, reviewed the current state of the law concerning small cell infrastructure and the limits placed on municipal government by state and federal law at the July 19, 2019, City Council meeting.
Overview of the Irwin Thomas Gravel Mine Operation
