Council giving our property away to Verizon
I respect the work city staff put into negotiating with Verizon, but I strongly disagree with the city council's vote to allow Verizon to install 45 new wireless canisters throughout our city in return for only $50 per year. Verizon is already leasing space, but at the much higher price of $3000 a year! Our council should never be in the practice of essentially giving away property in our neighborhoods to big corporate interests. We also need better efforts by the council to bring competition into the city for cable and high-speed internet. As a city councilor, I'll work hard to make sure our neighborhoods get better service they deserve - without giving away our property!
