Lessee shall not place any advertisement or other notice on or about the Leased Premises which
identifies the Lessee in any way ( except for emergency notification postings). Lessee shall, at its
expense, comply with all present and future federal, state, and local laws, ordinances, rules and
regulations (including laws and ordinances relating to health, safety, radio frequency emissions,
and radiation) in connection with the use, operation, maintenance, construction and/or
installation of Lessee's Equipment on the Leased Premises.
(b) Lessee shall be permitted to use the area reasonably agreed upon by Lessor and Lessee, to be
described in Exhibit C hereof, for ingress and egress to and from the Leased Premises for the
use and benefit of the Leased Premises, or such other access easements as Lessor may designate
during the term of this Lease. Lessee shall have 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week access to the
Leased Premises at all times during the term of this Lease Agreement.
The Lessor agrees to permit the Lessee and its contractors reasonable access during normal
working hours defined as Monday through Friday 8 am to 4 pm (unless otherwise consented to
by the Lessor) to the Property to facilitate the installation, operation and maintenance of the
Equipment and the removal thereof, but only under Lessor's supervision and subject to
reasonable prior notice to the Lessor. Lessor shall provide Lessee phone numbers in order to
gain immediate access to the Property in case of emergencies which occur after normal business
hours. Lessee, or Lessee's employees, agents, contractors, subcontractors, lenders or invitees,

BAC244 Glenmount ES

Pmt-cd3.vedin-4152008

Premises, over, across and through that portion of the Property reasonably agreed upon by Lessor
and Lessee described on Exhibit C to the nearest available utility source.
The foregoing shall be accomplished without interfering with the use or development of the
Property by Lessor, and promptly upon completion of such construction, erection or installation
Lessee shall, at its own cost and expense, repair any damage to the Property resulting from such
construction, erection, or installation.
(d) Lessor specifically reserves the right to develop the Property in any manner that does not
cause undue interference to Lessee's use of the Leased Premises.
( e) If Lessee wants to add any improvements, other than an emergency services location based
system, to the Leased Premises after initial construction drawings are approved by Lessor and
improvements specified in drawings are installed by Lessee, Lessee shall make its request in
writing and specify in detail the proposed change or modification in accordance with Paragraph 5
of this Agreement. Lessor will respond to any such request within thirty (30) working days of
receipt. Lessor shall not unreasonably withhold, condition, delay or deny approval of any
proposed change. Should Lessor fail to respond within thirty (30) working days, the proposed
change shall be deemed approved. A change or modification solely to the interior of any cabinet
is not considered a change or modification of Lessee's Equipment. Lessee shall have the right to
substitute, modify, change or replace any of its communications equipment, including antennas,
which was previously approved for installation by Lessor, without the permission of Lessor.
(f) Lessee agrees to install and operate equipment of a type and frequency which will not cause
interference in any way to Lessor's operation or to the operation of Lessor's existing tenant if

to Lessor's Operations at any future date when Lessee desires to add additional equipment to the
Leased Premises with respect to Lessor and Lessor's tenants with rights in the Property prior in
time to Lessee's. In the event Lessor believes, in Lessor's reasonable judgment and opinion, that
an installation or activity of Lessee is directly causing interference to Lessor's Operations, Lessor
shall give oral notice of the interference at a number posted at the site (to be followed by written
notice) to Lessee and Lessee shall immediately dispatch within twenty four (24) hours authorized
representatives to inspect and test Lessee's operations and equipment. In the event of an
emergency, Lessee shall disconnect its operations and equipment from a remote location. Lessor
shall cause an independent third-party expert to perform, upon notice to Lessee, a technical
evaluation to determine the cause of interference. If, after considering the results of Lessee's
inspection and tests or any technical evaluation performed by Lessor, Lessor determines that
Lessee is, in fact, directly causing interference to Lessor's Operation, Lessor shall, within six (6)
hours of such determination, notify Lessee and Lessee shall immediately cease interfering with
Lessor's Operation. In any event, if Lessee fails to cease its interference with Lessor's Operation
within twelve (12) hours of such determination, Lessor shall have the right to take whatever steps
it deems necessary, in its reasonable judgment and discretion, to cause the interference to cease.
Lessee shall be responsible for all reasonable payments/expenses that occur as a direct result of
having to correct any interference problems caused solely by Lessee.
For a period of thirty (30) calendar days after Lessor determines that Lessee's operations have
caused interference and that the interference has not ceased within twelve (12) hours of such
determination, Lessee may request, and, if its request is approved by Lessor, remain on the
Leased Premises and perform intermittent testing of potential cures during specified hours.
Lessor's approval of a request to remain and conduct intermittent testing during specified hours
shall not be umeasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned.
Lessor's sole liability to Lessee for action taken pursuant to this Paragraph shall consist of the
value of any damage or repairs made necessary by willful or negligent acts of Lessor. In no
event shall Lessor be liable for loss in value of Lessee's equipment, or any loss of revenue by
Lessee resulting from removal, which is not the result of Lessor's willful or negligent act, or for
any consequential or other damages to Lessee.
Similarly, Lessor shall not use, nor shall Lessor permit its employees, invitees, agents, or
existing or future licensees or lessees to use, any portion of the Property in any way which
interferes with the operations of Lessee. Such interference shall be deemed a material breach by
Lessor, who shall, upon written notice from Lessee, be responsible for terminating said

Bait/Washington
BAC244 Glenmount ES

Pmt-cd3. ver .fin-4152008

interference. In the event any such interference does not cease promptly, the parties
acknowledge that continuing interference may cause irreparable injury and, therefore, Lessee
shall have the right, in addition to any other rights that it may have at law or in equity, to bring a
court action to enjoin such interference or to terminate this Lease Agreement immediately upon
written notice.
(g) Lessor hereby grants Lessee, its employees, contractors, subcontractors, agents,
representatives and invitees a non-exclusive right to use an area for ingress and egress by
vehicular traffic over that portion of the Property designated in Exhibit C hereof or such other
area of similar dimensions as may be designated by Lessor to the Leased Premises, for the
purpose of constructing, installing, maintaining, operating, repairing and removing Lessee's
Equipment. Should such area be taken or otherwise removed or made unusable, Lessor and
Lessee shall reasonably determine another area for Lessee's non-exclusive use.
(h) Lessor hereby grants to Lessee, at its option, the right to survey the Leased Premises. Said
survey, along with any site plan shall become Exhibit B to this Lease.
(i) Lessee shall have the right to remove all or any portion of Lessee's Equipment from time to
time, whether before or after a default under this Lease, in Lessee's sole discretion and without
Lessor's consent. Lessee at its own expense shall dispose of any materials used or generated
during any and all construction, erection, reconstruction, operation, maintenance, repairs or
removal activities.
U) Lessor hereby grants Lessee and the local utility and telephone companies entry/access to
construct, install, maintain, operate, provide, repair and remove overhead and/or underground
communication and electric power lines and systems along, over and/or under that portion of the
Leased Premises designated in Exhibit C hereof; and telephone and electric service to the Leased
Premises. It is hereby understood by both Lessor and Lessee that the aforementioned
entry/access will not take the place of, and shall not be construed to replace any necessary
easements, right of entry or license agreements that may be needed to accommodate any of the
activities mentioned in this paragraph G).

the sole but reasonable discretion of Lessor) and/or which maybe allowed by law. Lessor
reserves the right to prescribe the weight and position of all "heavy equipment" prior to
construction, and to prescribe the reinforcing necessary, if any, which in the opinion of Lessor
may be required under the circumstances, and any such reinforcing shall be at Lessee's expense.

7.

UTILITIES:

Lessee, at its sole expense, shall arrange for its own separately metered electrical supply
from the local utility company and shall pay for all electrical and other utility charges attributed
to Lessee's use. Upgrading of utilities and installation of new utilities shall be done only with
Lessor's prior written consent and at Lessee's expense. In the event Lessee is unable to obtain
separate utility service, Lessee has the right to use an existing, unused sub-meter, if available, or
to install a separate sub-meter, at its sole expense, and draw electricity from the existing utilities
on the Property. Lessee may install such additional risers and feeders as may be reasonably
necessary to connect the sub-meter to the Equipment. After the meter is read by Lessor and
billed to Lessee, Lessee shall pay for the electricity it consumes in its operations at the rate

Bait/Washington
BAC244 Glenmount ES

Pmt-cd3. ver.fin--4152008

charged by the servicing utility company.


At Lessee's expense, Lessee may install on the Property a back-up uninterrupted power
supply ("UPS") system consisting of batteries, and a generator, and a fuel tank. The UPS system
and fuel tank shall be maintained at Lessee's sole cost and expense. Lessor shall have the right to
reasonably designate the location of such UPS system and fuel tank.
8.

DISTURBANCE/JNTERFERENCE:

Lessee shall not commit or suffer to be committed any waste upon the Property or any
nuisance or other act or thing which may disturb the Lessor, any other lessee or tenant of the
Lessor or their use and/or occupancy of the Property, or affect their quiet enjoyment thereof.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Lessee covenants and agrees that the operation
of its facilities hereunder will fully comply with applicable FCC technical requirements and
Lessee will not intentionally or knowingly create or cause technical interference to any radio
communication or any electronic or other transmission or reception operations of Lessor or any
of Lessor's tenants, invitees or lessees existing at the Property prior to the installation of the
Equipment. In the event Lessee's use of the Property shall interfere with or obstruct the full, free
and proper operations of Lessor or other of Lessor's existing tenants, invitees or lessees, Lessee
agrees to use its best efforts and cooperate with Lessor to devise a way in which Lessee can
continue its use of the Property without such interference or obstruction. In the event of an
interference which affects City Emergency Communications Systems, Lessor shall give twentyfour (24) hours notice to Lessee and Lessee shall cease and desist operations upon receipt of
notice of the problem. Lessee will take all necessary steps to correct and eliminate the
interference consistent with appropriate government rules and regulations. If the interference
affects City Emergency Communications Systems, Lessee shall cease operation of its equipment
until such interference is cured, with the exception of intermittent testing necessary to determine
a remedy for the interference.
Lessor shall require that all future radio operators desiring to use this location will first
coordinate with Lessee to insure that their frequencies and antenna locations will be compatible
with Lessee's so as to prevent harmful interference. However, in the event that, subsequent to the
date of this Lease Agreement, Lessor leases space on the Property or grants a lease to use
antennas at the Property to a person or entity other than Lessee and said tenant or lessee causes
technical interference to Lessee's use and operation of its Equipment, or in the event that Lessor
at any time causes technical interference to such use and operation by Lessee, then Lessee shall
give Lessor notice in writing of such interference and an opportunity to cure. Upon receipt of
such notice, Lessor shall immediately endeavor to eliminate the interference and/or cause any
other tenant or lessee at the Property causing the interference to eliminate same. Lessor's failure
to comply with this paragraph shall be a material breach of this Lease Agreement. If such
interference does not cease promptly after the notice thereof by Lessee to Lessor then Lessee,
without liability to Lessor may sue to enjoin the interfering activity or declare this Lease
Agreement terminated pursuant to section 29(d) hereof
9.

ALTERATIONS: RELOCATION: REMOVAL: RESTORATION:

additional alteration, installation, improvement, structural change or other modification to the
Property, or any part thereof, without first obtaining Lessor's prior written consent, in every
instance (excluding routine maintenance, repairs, the like-kind replacement of the Equipment, or
any modifications to the interior of the equipment shelter or items housed therein). Each request
for Lessor's consent shall be in writing and shall contain all pertinent information. Upon Lessor's
prior written consent, which may be withheld at the Lessor's reasonable discretion, Lessee may
remove and/or replace all or part of the Equipment and substitute other equipment at the
Property, all at Lessee's sole expense, on or before the expiration or earlier termination of this
Lease Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lessee shall have the right to remove all of its
Equipment from the Leased Installation prior to or upon termination or expiration of this Lease
Agreement. Lessee shall make any necessary repairs to the Property, minimal wear and tear

After initial installation of the Equipment and the expiration of the Initial Term, Lessor
has the one-time right to require Lessee to relocate the Equipment on the Property, upon twelve
(12) months prior written notice to Lessee; provided, however, that (i) no relocation shall be
required to a location which will not permit the Equipment to function properly or which would
not allow for necessary transmission paths, in Lessee's sole discretion and (ii) Lessor shall bear
the reasonable cost of such relocation.
10.

is received by the Lessee, Lessor shall have the right to abate any graffiti present at the Leased
Premises and Lessee shall reimburse Lessor all costs directly attributable to abatement of
Lessee's Equipment which are incurred by Lessor in connection with such abatement within
thirty (30) days of Lessor's presenting Lessee with a statement of such costs.

Premises for the purpose stated herein, and terminates this Agreement pursuant to provisions
herein, Lessee agrees that it shall restore the Leased Premises and such other portions of the
Property that have been damaged, modified or altered by or on behalf of Lessee as nearly as
possible to their original condition.
Prior to beginning any operation of the Leased Installation, Lessee shall secure all
necessary leases, permits and other approvals, including but not limited to FCC and zoning and
building permits and/or authorizations, required for Lessee's use of the Property and operation of
the Equipment hereunder (all such approvals hereinafter referred to as "Approvals").

Upon request, Lessor agrees to cooperate with Lessee, in obtaining such Approvals;
however, Lessee shall bear all costs and expenses associated with any such efforts undertaken by
either Lessee or Lessor, including providing reasonable compensation to Lessor for Lessor's time
and efforts in providing such cooperation. It is expressly agreed that Lessor's obligation to
provide reasonable cooperation in securing the Approvals does not include any obligation, as a
regulatory authority, to issue any zoning or any other local Approval. Lessee shall take all
necessary steps to maintain all Approvals in full force and effect, including complying in all
material respects with the terms and conditions of the Approvals; complying with applicable law
and regulations governing Lessee's conduct under this Lease Agreement; effectuating proper and
timely filing of all reports and other documents with the relevant governmental authorities
pertinent to the Approvals; and timely seeking all necessary renewals, extensions and/or other reauthorizations of the Approvals. In the event any such application is finally rejected or Lessee, in
its reasonable discretion, believes such application approval will be too costly, time consuming
or there is a reasonable likelihood that said application will be rejected or any certificate, permit,
license or approval issued to Lessee is canceled, expires or lapses, or is otherwise withdrawn or
terminated by governmental authority, or soil boring tests or radio frequency tests are found to be
unsatisfactory so that Lessee, in its sole discretion, will be unable to use the Leased Property for
its specified purposes, Lessee shall have the right to terminate this Agreement.

Upon installation of the Equipment, Lessee shall provide Lessor with such evidence as
Lessor may reasonably require of compliance with laws, including (if appropriate), regulations of
the FCC and FAA.

in safe and good condition, reasonable wear and tear and damage from the elements excepted,
and in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Lessor must give Lessee written

make such repairs within reasonable time after any damage occurs, Lessor shall have the right
to make all necessary and reasonable repairs, and Lessee shall reimburse Lessor for its expense
within fifteen (15) days, of Lessor presenting to Lessee a statement showing the cost of such
