Staff recommends approval of the additional funds needed to pay for the review of a second Separation Study of the facilities in the City of Fruitland Park. Additional funds total $9,973.12 with the final project totaling $49,973.12. The work has been completed and additional funds are needed to pay for additional services requested.
R. W. Beck has reviewed and provided comments regarding the appraisal of the electric distribution facilities prepared by GAI Consultants and the separation study prepared by WWH Enterprises on behalf of the City of Fruitland Park. R. W. Beck has completed an extensive review of the documents and has provided excellent reports regarding the methodologies used and study findings. The additional charge resulted from the Staff request that R. W. Beck not only review the WWH Separation and Reintegration Study, but also review an additional Separation and Reintegration Study developed by City of Leesburg Electric Staff. Reviewing both studies, R. W. Beck has provided the City of Leesburg with a more balanced view of the value of the electric distribution system and a Separation and Reintegration plan that preserves current service levels to Leesburg utility customers that are located outside city limits of Fruitland Park.
1. Approve the Amendment to the R. W. Beck Resolution as presented; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The current budget includes $40,000 as approved by City Commission on November 23, 2009. A budget adjustment is necessary to appropriate the additional $9,973.12 from fund balance.
