A new cell phone tower has gone up alongside Highway Toronto Street to service Rogers cell phone customers. Township of Uxbridge Mayor Dave Barton says this tower and others are under Federal jurisdiction meaning the Municipality has had little say in where they go on private lots. He says he would like to change that and put in more guidelines to get the Township involved.

The Mayor says he and Township staff were only recently told the new tower was going up.
