AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           February 22, 2010

 

From:                          Kevin Cochrane, Communications Manager  

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing the First Amendment to the existing agreement with Florida Lambda Rail, LLC, allowing the City to utilize its fiber optic connection to Florida Lambda Rail as a Network Aggregator

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the first amendment to the agreement with Florida Lambda Rail, LLC, to utilize its fiber optic connection to Florida Lambda Rail as a Network Aggregator for municipal agencies in Lake County.

 

Analysis:

The City has an existing agreement approved by Resolution 7879, approved February 26, 2007  with Florida Lambda Rail to provide Broadband Internet Services to the City. This amendment will allow the City to act as an aggregator for Florida Lambda Rail by providing connectivity to Florida Lambda Rail, via the City’s fiber optic network, to any government or health care agency in Lake County who may want to utilize various technology services offered by Florida Lambda Rail. The City will gain additional Ethernet fiber optic connections by providing the connectivity.

 

Options:

1.  Approval of the Resolution authorizing execution of the amendment, or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The City of Leesburg will realize additional revenue if any governmental agency decides to utilize Florida Lambda Rail technology services. If no agencies choose to connect to Florida Lambda Rail, there will be no fiscal impact to the City.  If an agency wishes to connect to Florida Lambda Rail, the City will collect a separate fee [$1,200.00] from the agency [in addition to the standard City fees for Ethernet fiber service] wishing to connect, and reimburse that fee on a quarterly basis to Florida Lambda Rail.  If agencies who are not current Communications customers choose to connect to Lambda Rail, the City will incur a cost for last mile connectivity.   This cost will be covered through the Communications Utility capital budget, in the same way the Utility incurs last mile costs for all fiber connections. Funds are available for the installation work in the Utility’s approved Capital Improvement Plan. Ongoing support costs are accounted for in the operating budget.
