Gibson City approves bid for tower inspection

GIBSON CITY — Council members have taken action on a long-delayed lease termination agreement with Sprint.

The company previously removed some of its equipment from the city-owned tower adjacent to city hall but wants to pay the city $10,000 to leave behind some equipment.

Mayor Daniel Dickey said he hasn't felt comfortable signing the agreement before a tower inspection is done to determine the type and safety of equipment that the city would assume liability for.

Members approved the lower of two bids for the work from Griffin Tower Connection Inc. of Decatur. The firm will charge $2,200 to inspect the tower and also "map" the remaining equipment for location, condition and ownership.

Council members also gave authority for the mayor to sign the lease termination agreement if he is satisfied with the inspection report.

A groundbreaking for the city's assisted-living facility — to be known as Villas of Hollybrook — will be at 10 a.m. Friday at the property north of GCMS Middle School.
