One Florida County is realizing that cell towers in their community could equal more money for the the county.
According to Florida Today, “New cell phone towers could be taking on an unconventional look in Brevard County, disguised as pine trees or flagpoles, under new plans under consideration by county officials. Additionally, the county is considering getting into the cell tower business, and making money from cell phone companies by renting space on them.”
The amount of money generated for each carrier on a cell tower per year, could be anywhere from $40,000 to $50,000 which in turn could generate millions of dollars of income for the county.
So the next time you think about opposing a new cell tower, think of the money it could generate for your city or county. It may be worth it in the end.
