The board held a conference call with Nathan Ward from Verizon to discuss the construction of a new cell phone tower on the courthouse premises. Verizon will dismantle the old tower and replace it with a new tower that will be 165 feet in height. Equipment on the old tower will be relocated to the new tower. Verizon is requesting rent abatement for the first ten years, allowing them to recoup approximately $140,000 worth of investments. Beginning in year 11, Verizon will pay the county $18,000 annually in rent, with a 3% increase each successive year. Verizon hopes to have a lease agreement in place by June 15, 2012, with construction beginning in September 2012. County Sheriff asked if it would be possible to negotiate any equipment or airtime into this agreement and Ward said that would not be possible because the service and sales side of Verizon’s business is separate from the engineering side which is responsible for the tower agreement. Bock asked if there would be an option of negotiating the rent payment structure, allowing the county to receive some amount of rent the first ten years. Ward will check into this, and also said one of the primary benefits to the county is replacement of significantly outdated equipment, with ownership of the new equipment eventually turned over to the county.

Motion by Bock, second by Nieland to approve claims for payment as presented. On roll call, all voted aye.
