OTSEGO – The Chenango County Safety and Rules Committee offered the following Resolution #10-8 for consideration by the Board of Supervisors at their monthly meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 11, regarding the potential leasing of a tower site in the Town of Otsego to T-Mobile Northeast, LLC.

Upon negotiation and approval by County Attorney Alan E. Gordon, Esq., Chairmain Lawrence Wilcox would be authorized to execute, on behalf of the Board of Supervisors, a lease with T-Mobile Northeast, LLC for the lease of land around a vacant tower site in the Town of Otselic with a term lasting up to 30 years.

Chairman Wilcox said that the contract isn't yet set and remains in negotiation, however the revenue portion is fixed and the County would receive $1,800 a month for the leasing of the tower and surrounding land.

Pharsalia Town Supervisor Dennis Brown inquired about where the revenue would go, to which Charman Wilcox responded that it would most likely be set aside in the County's general funds.
