Meeting Date:           February 22, 2010

 

From:                          Kevin Cochrane, Communications Manager  

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an Agreement for Telecommunications Data Transport Services with the School Board of Lake County                  

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing an agreement for Telecommunications Data Transport Services with The School Board of Lake County.

 

Analysis:

The School Board of Lake County has an existing contract with the City of Leesburg that expires on June 30, 2010.  The School Board approved the new agreement term at their meeting on January 25, 2010. The new agreement will run from July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011. The new agreement has the same terms and conditions as the agreement that was approved by the City Commission on February 13, 2006, by Resolution No. 7573.  Data Transport Service will be provided to 44 sites throughout Lake County. The new agreement was approved by the School Board with a maximum rate increase of 2.69% over current rates. The rate increase was presented to the School Board as being indexed to the Gross Domestic Product Implicit Price Deflator Index [GDPIPDI], which is determined in the 4th quarter of the year. The price adjustment will be effective as of 10/1/2010. The City has agreed that the maximum increase will not exceed 2.69% [the last increase was 1.96%].

 

Options:

1.  Approve the agreement with Lake County School Board or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

Fiscal Impact

The City  will realize revenue for the School Board’s fiscal year 7/1/2010 – 6/30/2011, of $221,556.00 [$427.00 per month, per site], if the GDPIPDI index is 2.69%. The revenue will be slightly less if the index is lower than 2.69%.  Annual revenue in the current agreement which expires on 6/30/2010 is $215,807.76. The estimated support cost for the school network for the new fiscal year is approximately $35,000.00, not including the one time cost to replace the wireless connection in Howey-in-the-Hills [$28,000.00]. These support costs are included in the utility’s operating budget.
