Item No: 4.C.3.
Meeting Date: February 11, 2013
From: Jim Lemberg – Manager, Communications Utility
Subject: Resolution authorizing execution of an Interlocal Agreement with Lake County for construction of fiber optic cable infrastructure and placement of a prefabricated building.
Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing execution of the Interlocal Agreement with Lake County for construction of fiber optic cable infrastructure and placement of a prefabricated building.
A key part of the Communications Utility’s network expansion plan involves a remote site in Tavares in which to place network electronics. This Interlocal Agreement will allow the Utility to place a previously procured prefabricated building on County property near the County’s new judicial center for that purpose. In exchange for a license for placing that building on County property, the Utility will construct fiber optic cable infrastructure and pass title to that infrastructure to the County. The agreement will require the County to reimburse the City over a 36-month period for its actual construction costs up to a maximum of $50,000; costs over $50,000 will be shared equally by the County and City. The Utility set the $50,000 limit after having carefully estimated construction costs and adding a comfortable contingency amount.
1. Approve the resolution, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
On January 28, 2013 the City Commission approved the budget Rollovers from FY 2012; $7,567 was included for this project which was funded from Renewal & Replacement funds. Additionally, the Communications Utility has requested a budget adjustment for another $90,000 for this and related projects in the same geographic locale. This specific project is estimated to require $35,000 to $42,000 of those funds. This will be funded with available Renewal & Replacement funds and included on the First Quarter Budget Adjustments.
