Staff recommends approval of an Encroachment Agreement with Florida Gas Transmission Company LLC.
The City has previously entered into an agreement with The School Board of Lake County to extend the City’s fiber optic network to two additional school sites. That effort will require a cable to be placed underground at the intersection of Wolf Branch Road and County Road 437. Florida Gas Transmission Company owns two natural gas pipelines that run beneath that intersection in an easement. In order to place the new cable under that intersection, the City must enter into this Encroachment Agreement.
1. Approval of the Resolution authorizing execution of the agreement, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
