AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           January 10, 2011

 

From:                          Jim Lemberg, Manager – Communications Utility

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an Amendment to Pole Attachment Agreement with Florida Power Corporation to extend the term of the original pole attachment agreement between the parties

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of an Amendment to Pole Attachment Agreement with Florida Power Corporation.

 

Analysis:

The Communications Utility attaches fiber optic cables to utility poles under pole attachment agreements.  The City’s original pole attachment agreement with Florida Power Corporation did not contain auto-renewal language.  The term of the original agreement has ended. This amendment to the original pole attachment agreement with Florida Power Corporation will extend that agreement on a year-to-year basis until one of the parties gives notice that it wishes to terminate the agreement.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the resolution, or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Under its pole attachment agreements with various pole owners, the Communications Utility pays pole attachment fees.  These fees are included in the Utility’s budget.  This amendment does not change the fees anticipated by the Utility’s current budget.
