SANDY, Utah (AP) -- Some Sandy residents are concerned about the location for a new cell phone tower.

The plan is to put the tower base atop Albion Middle School.

School officials say that isn't final yet and parents have been calling in their concerns over possible health risks to students.

Parents are concerned the school would see the money the tower would bring in and not consider the children. The superintendent says the district will not jeopardize students' health for the tower proposal.

The Jordan School District already has 41 cell phone leases in the district. It's up to each school's community council whether the towers can be put there.

The original plan was to put a 60-foot tower east of the school.

But that plan was rejected. The new plan is for a smaller box-like version.

The cell phone company maintains that there is no health risk to students.
