Vertical Consultants, a telecom consulting firm and cell tower lease expert, is proud to announce the addition of the City of Elizabethton to its client list. Representatives from the City of Elizabethton engaged the experts at Vertical Consultants with questions and concerns related to an extension of a current telecom lease located on municipal property.

After reviewing the City of Elizabethton’s cell tower lease, the telecom lease was deemed undervalued, warranting renegotiations of the lease terms to reflect the true value of the City of Elizabethton’s land to their telecom tenants. Officially representing the City of Elizabethton, Vertical Consultants will be handling negotiations with the City’s telecom tenant in an effort to achieve not only achieve full and fair value for the use of the City’s property, but a restructuring of the agreement to allow more flexibility for the City and the use of its property going forward.

“We are very honored to have the opportunity to work with the City of Elizabethton and are looking forward to providing the City with results that will not only immediately affect it positively, but will have a long lasting impact on the municipality and those individuals, businesses and government that comprise it,” states Odom. “While municipalities across the nation often lose revenue from undervaluing their telecom assets, Vertical Consultants strives to provide them vital information and services that can put revenue back into municipalities where it belongs,” Odom adds.
