A Resolution Authorizing the County Administrator to Acquire Interests in Real Property Necessary to Construction and Install Public Safety Radio System Equipment, Antenneas, and Equipment Enclosures

Topic Description:

The County applied for space on two American Tower sites in December of 2001, one at Morrisville and the other at Blue Mountain.  To date, the County has received an offer to lease the Morrisville site.  This offer differs materially from the proposal which was previously discussed by the Board in closed session. The County has not received a written proposal with respect to Blue Mountain.  It is necessary to obtain access to these properties in order to continue to implement the radio system installation.
