September 5- Telecommunications
Cell Tower Leasing for Cities
Local governments can generate long term revenues by leasing land, water towers and buildings for cellular communications towers and antennas. The key to a successful lease is the rental terms, plus the right terms and protective conditions so as to avoid potential legal landmines. John Pestle, Esq. and Jonathan Kramer, Esq. are highly experienced local government telecommunications attorneys who regularly craft and enforce municipal cell tower leases. In this 90-minute webinar, they will walk you through the process of dealing with the cell tower providers and their contractors to help get the best financial terms in leases, and identify and avoid the legal landmines commonly found in industry boilerplate provisions, including the risk of accidently triggering property reverters. They will also provide helpful practice pointers about the cell tower leasing and sales process. The program will cover both key aspects of cell leases, and the potential sale by municipalities of such leases, as well as long-term leasing rights. Extensive handouts in PDF format will be provided to participants, which commonly include local government attorneys, city managers and the real estate property managers working for local governments. A lively and interactive Question and Answer session will follow the presentation.
