The Oyster Bay Town Board plans to vote Tuesday night on an ordinance that would create a longer process for companies to obtain permits to install cellphone transmission equipment.
The town faces a federal lawsuit from Crown Castle NG East LLC of Texas, brought after Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino revoked the company’s permits to install cellphone antennae in residential areas in May. According to the lawsuit, the town issued the permits in April.
Saladino plans to hold a news conference on the proposal Tuesday afternoon.
Democrats challenging Saladino and members of the all-Republican board in November plan to follow up with their own news conference the same afternoon.
