It isn’t a cell tower; the shape is all wrong. No TV or radio signal broadcasts from it. The plot is owned by the city but rented by an unknown entity whose unsigned checks arrive like clockwork on the first of every month and cash promptly. But there is no description of the tower’s function in any official documentation other than a terse “antenna” in the notes of obscure city paperwork. Among locals, opinion is evenly divided: about half think the tower is incomplete and being held for eventual sale, and the other half is more in the “alien mind control conspiracy” camp.
