Cell Tower Carrier Behind on Rent in New JerseyComments Off on Cell Tower Carrier Behind on Rent in New Jersey
The Lebanon Township in New Jersey voted at the beginning of August to approve a second carrier contract on an existing cell tower. This approval allowed Nextel to place equipment on the tower as well as outlined provisions for other companies to use the tower. Even though Nextel has been using the tower for a few months now, they have not been paying rent to the township as agreed upon.
Mayor Tom McKee said it was not yet time to send default notice as suggested by a resident. Invoices have been sent, McKee said, but the language in the contract “doesn’t give us a leg to stand on.” (Source: NJ.com)
