Staff recommends approval of Amendment No. 1 to the existing agreement with Nextel South Corp., to add a natural gas generator at the Bassville Water Tower antenna site.
The Nextel South Corp. leases antenna space from the City at the Bassville Water Tower site under an existing Communications Site Lease Agreement which was originally signed in May, 2000. This first amendment to the agreement adds, as a permitted use, the installation, use, repair, and maintenance of a backup power generator, which will be powered by natural gas which is available at the site. The City Water Department has reviewed and approved the location of the generator system. The agreement has been reviewed by the City Attorney’s office and Nextel South Corp., and has been signed by Nextel South Corporation.
1. Approve the resolution with Nextel South Corp. to add a generator power system at the Bassville Water Tower site.
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
All costs to install the generator will be the responsibility of Nextel South Corp. The City will realize additional revenue of $320.00 per month for the space used to locate the generator.
