presentation of plats from surveyor indicating water and sewer lines. Second by
Commissioner Schoonover. Pass 5-0.
3. Cell Phone Tower presentation
Tom Holliman: Represent BRT LLC Tower Company; T-Mobile is the client and will have at least four carriers to share the tower. Goal was to serve the interstate and Greenland.
Bill Lazenby manages the 53 acres, up against Washington County Line, for the 195-foot monopole. This is an area that is already of interest to City as an Industrial Zone. BRT LLC Tower Company would lease a 80’x80’ square, with a non-excusive easement with the owners. Dilemma: owns 54 acres, and if it is rezoned all in the beginning then taxes might go up, so owner is concerned about increase of taxes. Typical in a tower agreement, that when the tower goes in that they will pay for any increase in taxes going Industrial. They will research with tax assessor to determine if tax increase for entire acreage would happen with just this tower development.
