Lease for Radio Tower near
Water Tower

All, I am wondering if anyone would be willing to share what other cities are being paid for having a separate radio tower on City property adjacent to a water tower? Our lease is up next year and we are trying to get some background info.

Different People — One Mission

What People Say

I joined SUSA in 1997. Before that I was part of the MSSA group since 1991 and never felt “at home”! The SUSA group has the nicest, most intelligent people I know! They welcome all new members and will help anybody that asks for help. After 38 years in Public Works, I trust the SUSA group to help me out in difficult situations because I know I can trust them! I have made many lifelong friends and connections through this group!

Paul Coone

The greatest advantage to be a SUSA member is the networking opportunities, and the wealth of knowledge amongst the other SUSA members.

Eric Volk

With out question the social networking is the leading benefit I receive from membership with SUSA. The camaraderie of the organization is a reflection of the passion so many have for the water/sewer community. The mutual desire to share knowledge, assist colleagues, and develop operators is clearly the emphasis of SUSA.
