Mililani cell tower okayed by town association

MILILANI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A controversial cell phone tower got the unanimous okay Wednesday night from the Mililani Mauka Town Association. The 80-foot antenna is disguised as a tree.

Clearwire plans to build it at Rec Center 7, right across from Mililani Ike Elementary. Opponents say it's ugly and they should put it somewhere else, but the association says the town needs it for better reception.

Clearwire must now get approval from the city.
