Bronson officials are considering a land rental deal that could bring in thousands of dollars in extra revenue each year.

Verizon Wireless has approached the town in hopes officials will rent a small section of land on the corner of the James H. Cobb Park where the company will erect a cell phone tower.

The company has offered to pay $1,000 a month in rent each year with an additional 2 percent fee tacked on each year. Verizon is looking at a 25-year contract, which, in the end, could bring in an estimated $384,000.

"They would rather give it to a municipality or a non-profit (than to a private land holder)," said Bronson Town Clerk Kelli Brettel at Monday night's regular meeting.

Council members made no vote on the matter, wanting instead to first check into some of the specifics of the contract and rental fees offered.
