The following is a voicemail recording sent to me from early February 2019 from a City Manager’s office in response to a citizen query about 5G installations being constructed in various locations of the city.
The name of the city employee individual has been removed, as has the name of the resident and the city itself simply to preserve anonymity. The voice of the individual has been altered as well.
This statement reflects a nationwide development within the U.S., and indeed throughout most of the world. I am posting this with the express permission of the person who sent it to me.
I will probably publish this openly on Youtube in the next few days.
Good morning ________. My name is ________. I am the administrative assistant for the city manager’s office in __________. And I am returning your call with your question about 5G.
Unfortunately, state regulations have been passed in such a manner that the city of ________ has no leverage or no control over what happens with 5G.
Cellular companies are allowed to post the small 5G units on existing towers around the city, and all they need to do is apply for a permit. there’s no type of hearing.
And the cell companies are not responsible for telling the city anything about when those sites are activated. So the city really has no involvement and no information about what’s happening with 5G, other than the fact that from time to time the cell company will apply for a permit.
So there’s really no other information that we can give you. I’ve talked to city planning and several other people, but the legislation that was passed in the state and on the federal level have kind of taken all of that out of the city’s hands.
So, if you have any further questions, you can call back but at this point there’s really no other information to share with you. Thank you. Bye bye.”
