Mike Serpe makes a point

Pleasant Prairie village trustee Mike Serpe came up with a good question at last night's village plan commission meeting.

The commission was considering a rezoning request from US Cellular which would allow it to replace an old "cell tower" with a better one a short distance away.

Serpe, who is the commission's vice-chair, asked whether other carriers could be located on the same tower.

A great question. (The answer was that there may be room for one other carrier.)

There are times when consolidation is a good idea. There are times when it isn't. But in any event Serpe was right to ask that question.
