Bowling Green Mayor Richard Edwards said there is progress in the effort to get Verizon Wireless to consider another location for a tower under construction at the northbound Interstate 75 exit at Wooster Street.
"We had a productive meeting Friday, I believe," Edwards told city council Monday night. He heavily praised the efforts of State Sen. Randy Gardner, R-Bowling Green, for bringing the parties together. Work has not ceased at the site, although Edwards said he believes discussions on an alternative will continue.
Edwards said one of Verizon's engineers admitted during the meeting that he "much preferred" a site that had been offered by the university. "The pressure is on to seek a solution. BGSU and Verizon are talking. I know we left feeling a little more optimistic. It's not a totally rosy picture but we do see progress. The city did reaffirm its intent not to supply electricity to the site."
The mayor said Verizon wants to have the tower operational by August.
