The City Council's Committee on Housing and Building is now weighing three bills to regulate cellphone antennas on residential buildings. Some council members are worried that the antennas, the locations of which aren't always recorded by the city, could pose health risks, so they want to require notification of plans to install phone equipment and a 30-day waiting period for any objections. The DOB's not on board with the plan, while supporting council members insist the city's current antenna recording system is "like the Wild West." [NYT]
