Quoted from a recent article on the resolution:
“….[Mayor Wheeler] recently protested a Federal Communications Commission order filed in August requiring cities to accept all applications from telecommunications firms to build new wireless and broadband infrastructure.
Speaking at the U.S. Conference of Mayors winter meeting in Washington DC in late January, Wheeler said, ‘We need every single mayor who cares about this issue — local control of local assets — to sign on with this. The more the better, obviously.'”
2) More complaints about higher bills after smeters being installed. These from South Carolina where some bills have doubled. I have yet to hear of bills being reduced thanks to the smeters due to more accurate reading or reductions in rates.
Smart meters blamed by Blue Ridge Electric customers for soaring monthly power bills
“Tabitha Riley said her power bills have nearly doubled since Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative installed a smart meter at the mobile home in Dacusville that she shares with her fiance.
Her two most recent monthly bills were $330 and $370, she said. Before the new meter was installed, her bills were between $150 and $200 per month, she said.”
