[TowerTalk] Tower Rating - 90 MPH with Ice

Has anyone had success meeting the new TIA 222 G spec. in the northern states?

My city simply says "meet the spec."  The way I understand the spec is that 
the tower / antenna must be able to withstand 90 MPH with 1/2 inch radial ice.  
I also understand that the 90 MPH 3 second gust speed  correponds to 75 mph.

So my question is simple.  Is there a reasonably sized (and priced) 50 foot 
tower out there that will meet the this spec?  I don't mind paying for 
engineering certification if I knew what was being certified was going to meet 
spec.  By the way, my city will not accept arguements like existing 
installations, nesting tower during storm, etc.

Any suggestions appreciated.
