Uintah County/Team Mobile Agreement

During Monday’s meeting, the Uintah County Commission approved an agreement with T-Mobile for a lease of property at Western Park.  T-Mobile will pay $700 dollars a month to Uintah County to have access to a cell tower owned by Strata Networks. Strata Networks also maintains an agreement with Uintah County to access the property for their tower. The amount the County is charging T-Mobile is high compared to similar leasing agreements on local BLM land which averages around $200 dollars per month per unit. The $700 dollars per month T-Mobile will pay to Uintah County is separate from their agreement with Strata Networks to use the actual cell tower.
