Item No: 4.C.1.
Meeting Date: July 22, 2013
From: Jim Lemberg – Manager, Communications Utility
Subject: Resolution authorizing execution of a Third Addendum to Lease Agreement with Verizon Wireless Personal Communications LP.
Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing a Third Addendum to Lease Agreement with Verizon Wireless which will allow Verizon Wireless to place additional cables on the City’s monopole at the CR 470 sprayfield site.
Verizon Wireless wishes to place additional antennas and cables on the City’s monopole at the CR 470 sprayfield site. The agreement currently in place states how many antennas and cables Verizon Wireless may place on the pole. The additional antennas are within the number allowed, but additional cables will require an amendment to the agreement. A structural analysis was performed by a licensed professional engineer hired by Verizon Wireless. That analysis indicates the addition of the antennas and cables is within the structural capabilities of the monopole.
1. Approve the resolution authorizing the Addendum, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The annual rent due to the City from Verizon Wireless will increase by $3,174.00. The Communications Utility will not experience any additional operating expenses or capital outlay if the Addendum is approved.
