RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE CITY TO LEASE ANTENNA SPACE ON THE WOODLAND WATER TOWER TO THE STATE OF MINNESOTA FOR A CONSIDERATION OF $135 PER YEAR.

BY COUNCILOR FENA:

RESOLVED, that the proper city officers are authorized to enter into an agreement, substantially in the form of the agreement filed as Public Document No. _________, leasing to the state of Minnesota a space on the Woodland water tower and space in an adjacent pump house for installation of communications antennas and equipment for a consideration of $135 per year, said money to be deposited in Water Fund No. 510.



STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution authorizes an agreement with the state of Minnesota for a five year lease for antenna space on the Woodland water tower for a lease fee of $135 per year. Significant provisions of the lease are similar to our other Woodland water tower communications leases. There are some additional boilerplate clauses relating to human rights, smoking and audits that the state considers mandatory in all of its contracts. A single model DB224 antenna will be mounted on the tower and used for state of Minnesota wireless communications.
