Tower Feud: Saratoga County & APA Square Off

Listen to this story
The Adirondack Park Agency has worked hard to improve relations with local governments in the region. But last week, a dispute with Saratoga County erupted into public. Town and county officials hope to build three emergency broadcast towers on prominent mountain summits inside the Park. They've accused the Park Agency of delaying a project that's vital for public safety.
APA officials say the towers could do unnecessary harm to forests and scenic views. They say Saratoga County has been uncooperative and has refused to consider more environmentally-friendly technology. As Brian Mann reports, the feud could shape the APA's response to other government-sponsored projects.
