LIVERMORE — The Planning Board will hold a public hearing Tuesday to accept public comment on a site plan application to construct a 190-foot telecommunications tower on Waters Hill Road.

The hearing will begin at 6:45 p.m. on  Dec. 15 at the town office.

U.S. Cellular has a lease agreement to use a portion of land owned by Calvin and Ruth Gammon, to install a cell tower, Livermore Administrator Kurt Schaub said.

Two other applications to install towers on properties, including the Gammon’s, were approved in the past but the towers never went up, Schaub said.

In another matter, the new building at the transfer station is up and open, he said. The compactor has not been installed yet but the transfer station employees are using their office space.

As of Thursday, the transfer station started to accept products again that contain mercury such as thermostats and fluorescent light bulbs, Schaub said.

The town had to hold off on collecting those items after a fire destroyed the transfer station building and damaged another building in April.

“We appreciate our residents understanding of the situation and their patience, and we hope that very, very shortly things will be back to normal,” he said.
