Cities Sue State Over Wireless Antennas On Municipal Buildings

Mar 21, 2017


Dozens of Ohio cities, including Columbus, have filed lawsuits challenging a state law allowing four telecommunications companies to place wireless antennas on municipal buildings within city limits.

The lawsuits allege the measure violates the home rule provision of the Ohio Constitution.   The cities also argue the law was improperly placed in an unrelated bill that dealt with pet store regulations. The Ohio Attorney General's Office says the claims are being reviewed.
