Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an Agreement to Terminate Developer’s agreement and bond between Fruitland Park, LLC, and the City of Leesburg

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends authorizing the Agreement to Terminate as submitted by Fruitland Park, LLC and release the security bond and a portion of the cash deposit after deducting the expenses incurred by the City of Leesburg for the installation of the electrical utility infrastructure solely intended to serve “Fruitland Estates—Phase I.”

 

Analysis:

In connection with the Agreement, and in compliance with the City’s Code of Ordinances, the Developer obtained a Utility Security Bond in the penal sum of $60,076.00 and placed with the City a cash deposit in the amount of $67,322.00, both to secure payment of the cost of certain work to be done at the Project by the City to provide electric utility service. The Developer has now elected not to proceed at this time with construction of the Project and has requested to cancel the Agreement and receive a return of its bond and cash deposit.

 

In accepting this Agreement to Terminate, the City shall release the utility security bond to the Developer and a portion of the cash deposit that remains after reimbursement to the City of all of its costs and expenses incurred or paid to date in connection with the Project Developer.
