Submitted by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Authorize the City Manager to execute the attached First Amendment to Lease for the City's Water Tower with GTE Mobilnet.
On June, 1988, the City entered into a lease with GTE Mobilnet to lease an area on the City's Water Tower to place up to ten antennas for cellular communications and 3 whip antennas. The initial term was for one year with an option to renew for 3 additional terms of five years each. The monthly lease was $650 plus annual Consumers Price Index increase that would not exceed 6% per year.
GTE Mobilnet has requested replacement of its 3 whip antennas with nine, 8 foot high panel antennas. GTE Mobilnet has agreed to increase the monthly rent to $1,125 from its current rate of $915. All other significant provisions of the original lease remain in effect.
