Buffalo residents are speaking out after a tower was built on Bailey Avenue.
They say the cell phone tower was suddenly built in their neighborhood and they're concerned about the potential for radiation affecting their health.
A spokesperson for Buffalo Common Councilman Ulysses Wingo said his office only just learned about the tower's construction when residents did. Now, community leaders are calling for more information about how this happened, and what it means for the future of the city.
"Take it down and put it somewhere were the radiation won't bother anyone. We don't want it there. It's an eyesore," said Glenda Jones, Ruspin Avenue Block Club president.
The Ruspin Avenue Club has plans to file a complaint with the common council and petition the Erie County clerk.
Erie County Legislator Howard Johnson said there will be a follow up meeting at the Buffalo Science Museum Tuesday, October 22 at 7 p.m. that will address environmental concerns regarding the tower.
