Approval to send written approval to Lake County allowing them to move forward with a lease proposal with Verizon for carrier co-location at the communication tower facilities located at 1113 Teal Lane
In 2008, the Town of Lady Lake entered into an interlocal agreement with Lake County for a shared public service radio communications facility at 1113 Teal Lane (the Town owns the land and Lake County owns the communications tower). In 2012, the County requested written approval from the Town to allow a carrier (AT&T) co-location that included twelve antennas. In 2014, there was another request by the County to add six remote AT&T radio units to the tower. The Town Commission voted to approve both requests (2012 and 2014) and we are currently receiving $3,212.78 rent per month from AT&T. The County is now requesting approval from the Commission to allow them to move forward with another carrier co-location agreement, this time with Verizon. Should the Commission vote to approve the request, the Town will also receive revenue from the Verizon lease.
Proposed to be approximately $1,250 per month
