Verizon is Raising the Bar in the Valley

WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV)-- Stacey Bridge likes to talk and talk on the phone. But she says that she's run into a lot of problems when it comes to getting service.

"Depending on where I'm at, I don't get service. I've had a lot of dropped calls,' said Bridge, 'it's really irritating, yeah, it's frustrating."

That's why she's happy to hear that Verizon may be building a new cell phone tower, on the campus of Waynesboro High School. If built, the tower could help improve cell phone service in the area. The company already has two towers in the city and that leaves some people wondering if a third tower is really needed.

"I really don't see a need for it. I've never had a problem with Verizon's service at all," said Rupp, a Verizon customer.

Rupp lives right across the street from Waynesboro High School. She say she thinks it won't improve or hurt her phone's service.

"It's just an eyesore pretty much," said Rupp.

Either way, Bridge supports the idea and hopes the move will give her more bang for her buck.

"I'm hoping better service, less dropped calls," said Bridge.

You can chime in on the proposal in front of the Waynesboro Planning Commission at 7 p.m. on Aug. 19 in Waynesboro City Hall. The application for the tower will go in front of city council, if the planning commission approves it.
