Breaking: On April 6, 2022, the Pittsfield, Massachusetts Board of Health voted to send a cease and desist order to shut down a Verizon cell tower. The order will be sent to Verizon by certified mail on Friday April 8, 2022. The Board took this action because families living in the neighborhood of Shacktown near the tower on 877 South Street Pittsfield MA reported wireless radiation-related health issues soon after the tower became operational in 2020 and since then, have been working tirelessly to turn the transmissions off.
Statement by Courtney Gilardi after Pittsfield Board of Health Votes to Send Cease and Desist Order for Verizon Cell Tower
We pray that the Honorable Mayor supports the Board of Health’s decision and stands with the 17 harmed and the three with cancer. We pray she honor’s the Board of Health’s careful, conscientious and unanimous decision and frees up funds for the Board to retain legal council.
