Item No: 4.C.3.
Meeting Date: June 10, 2013
From: Jim Lemberg – Manager, Communications Utility
Subject: Resolution authorizing execution of an Amendment No. 1 to PCS Site Agreement with SprintCom, Inc.
Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing an Amendment No. 1 to PCS Site Agreement with Sprint which will have the effect of allowing a generator owned by Sprint to remain in place at the City’s water tower site that is near Lake Square Mall.
Prior to their merger, Sprint and Nextel had each entered into separate antenna leases with the City related to this site. Nextel had negotiated an amendment to its lease that allowed it to place a backup generator at the site. When the companies merged, the generator was used as a backup power supply for both companies’ equipment. The merged company decided during 2012 to decommission the Nextel site and terminated the Nextel antenna lease in November 2012. However, the company did not realize that in terminating that lease, it was also terminating its right to have a backup generator at the site. This Amendment of the legacy Sprint antenna lease will correct that oversight.
1. Approve the resolution authorizing the Amendment, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The Amendment will restore annual revenue of $4,665.84 that was lost when the legacy Nextel antenna lease was terminated. The Amendment will also result in Sprint’s paying $2,462.53 in back rent for the period of November 2012 through May 2013, plus a late fee of $36.94.
