• Proposed cellphone tower in Ligonier Township causing controversy


    LIGONIER TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A proposed cellphone tower is causing controversy in Ligonier Township.

    The tower would make life a little easier for those who run the Ligonier Valley Cemetery, which has fallen on hard times.

    Verizon and the cemetery association had an agreement that would be a financial win for the cemetery, but now there’s static.

    Some believe the free-standing structure will interfere with the beauty of the hillside.

    “What bothered me the most was the aesthetics.  From our position, we would see the tower, which is proposed to be 149 feet tall,” said museum manager Sommer Toffle.

    The cemetery association president said the cemetery would get $15,000 a year in the deal.

    “We feel there are many alternatives rather than a cemetery,” said Toffle.
