A lease agreement was signed between the city of Lynch and Appalachian Wireless at a recent meeting of the Lynch City Council.


The lease is for five years with an allowance of an additional six automatic renewals of five-year terms unless the city gives written notice that they do not wish to renew.


Appalachian Wireless agreed to pay the city $350 per month with a 5 percent increase added to the rental payment every five years.


Construction of the tower will be in the old Lynch High School parking lot.


A representative for Appalachian Wireless said the city will be given access to their building where they will have heat in the winter and air-conditioning in the summer, plus the benefits of their generator.


Police Chief Owen Wilson reminded council in the lease Appalachian Wireless granted the city permission to place two two-way radio antennas on their telecommunication tower after construction is completed.


“This is going to be a great improvement to our radio communications,” said Wilson. “There won’t be any issues of someone trying to get in touch with a police officer because we’ll have an antenna right here in the city. Appalachian Wireless has agreed to work with my department 100 percent.”


Construction could possibly begin immediately with a portable tower being constructed, which will suffice until paperwork is completed, which could be as long as one year.
