Glendal, Calif., faced questions like Santa Fe faces (Podcast)
(2010-04-05)
(KSFR) -
-- The question of a telecommunications ordinance for Santa Fe still hangs in the balance. City Council has postponed any further discussion until after two public town halls are completed. A draft ordinance has already been written, but will it be changed? And, if so, when?

City Councilor Miguel Chavez is organizing those two town halls in concert with a citizens group concerned about the possible health effects of more wi-fi type systems in Santa Fe. There's also been concern expressed by Santa Feans about devices being installed without adequate neighborhood notification.

Chavez has been a strong supporter of the idea of putting a moratorium in place until they have more information to work with. That's exactly what happened in Glendale, California. In fact, it's been exactly a year since Glendale put a moratorium in place, to give itself time to create a new city ordinance. Christina Sansone is the city attorney and I asked her what happened during that 12 months.
