The Sutherland Elementary School Local School Council (LSC) unanimously voted against renewing two contracts for cellular equipment that is installed on a smokestack at the school.

The celltower equipment will begin shutting down this summer, after the LSC voted 10-0 on Feb. 15 in the wake of the school community leading a petition drive to remove the equipment.
