Derry councilors to discuss contract, cell tower
Councilors also plan to discuss a proposal to construct an AT&T cell tower on town-owned property.
Councilors voted to table consideration of the collective bargaining agreement during their last meeting on Feb. 4 because they wanted more time to review the proposal.
The employees would also receive raises in fiscal years 2015, 2016 and 2017 of 1.5 percent, 2 percent and 2 percent, respectively, if the contract is approved, said Larry Budreau, human resource director and acting town administrator.
AT&T would pay the town $2,000 a month to lease the property, Carrier said.
The area is zoned medium residential, however, and telecommunications facilities are not permitted there, Carrier said. AT&T would need to go before the ZBA for a variance. In addition, the company would also need to obtain site plan approval from the Planning Board.
