   Some St. Peters homeowners are upset after a controversial cell phone tower was approved by the Board of Aldermen on a 6-2 vote Thursday night.  

   It was the second time St. Charles Tower had applied for a special use permit to build a 90 -foot tower in the 700 block of Jungerman Road.  The first time, the permit was denied because of it's proximity to a daycare.  

   But that was before Missouri's new Uniform Wireless Communications Infrastructure Deployment Act, which took affect at the end of August.  The legislation makes it more difficult for local communities to block cell tower construction.
