Staff recommends approval of an Agreement for Services with The School Board of Lake County for an extension of the City’s fiber optic network, and specifying a completion date.
The contemplated extension of the City’s fiber optic network will position the City to provide data transport services to two additional school sites (Round Lake Elementary and the newly-constructed School “J.” The School Board approved the contract at its meeting on May 10, 2010. Under the contract, The School Board will pay the City to extend its network to the two school sites and the City will subsequently own the new network infrastructure. The agreement will require the City to complete construction by August 1, 2010, but will not identify any consequences if that date is not met. The contract will further solidify the City’s fiber optic network position with one of its largest customers.
1. Approval of the Resolution authorizing execution of the agreement, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The School Board will pay the City a total fixed fee of $146,975.10 as follows: $25,000.00 upon contract execution; $25,000.00 upon physical start of cable deployment; $96,975.10 upon completion of cable deployment. As noted above, the City will retain ownership of the network infrastructure deployed under this contract.
Beginning August 1, 2010, the City will begin invoicing The School Board for two additional sites for data transport services (the existing data transport agreement will be amended by the City and School Board under a separate action between now and August 1). The City will earn approximately $415.00 of additional revenue per site per month, or $9,960.00 a year on a continuous basis.
