Cell phone tower contract for Grand Portage approved

At long last, Grand Portage is going to have cell phone 
service.  On November 20, the county board approved contracts with 
Grand Portage and New Cingular Wireless for a county-owned tower to be 
constructed on Grand Portage tribal land.
New Cingular Wireless will pay for the construction of the tower and 
in exchange will pay no rent during a lease of 25 years.

The company has not yet announced when the tower will be in operation.
