The reeve of Stuartburn is excited about the announcement of a cell tower going up in Vita.
M-T-S Allstream announced this week the community of Vita is 1 of 30 locations in Manitoba that will be receiving a digital cellular site this year.  Stuartburn Reeve Jim Swidersky says currently cell reception does not exist in Vita and residents have to drive 30 minutes just to get service.  He anticipates this new tower will be an economic boost, it will enhance public safety and be a real plus to the farming community.  Swidersky says his municipality will now lobby to have a tower erected in the R.M. of Piney.  He says it's important the entire southeast has cell reception and not just small pockets.
