   Some St. Peters homeowners are upset after a controversial cell phone tower was approved by the Board of Aldermen on a 6-2 vote Thursday night.  

   It was the second time St. Charles Tower had applied for a special use permit to build a 90 -foot tower in the 700 block of Jungerman Road.  The first time, the permit was denied because of it's proximity to a daycare.  

   But that was before Missouri's new Uniform Wireless Communications Infrastructure Deployment Act, which took affect at the end of August.  The legislation makes it more difficult for local communities to block cell tower construction.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — An organization representing city officials from across Missouri is urging Governor Jay Nixon to veto legislation limiting their ability to regulate cellphone towers.

The Missouri Municipal League said Friday the bill could allow placement of large cellphone towers in town squares or residential neighborhoods, which could hurt property values.

But bill supporters say their intent is to encourage the expansion of wireless Internet service across the state. They say the expansion can be hampered when companies have to comply with a hodgepodge of different local regulations that sometimes can be costly.

A Nixon spokesman declined to say whether the governor has any concerns about the bill, noting only that it will receive a thorough review.
