AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           January 24, 2011

 

From:                          Jim Lemberg – Manager, Communications Utility

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of a Nonbinding Memorandum of Understanding with the Lake Town Center Property Owners' Association, Inc. regarding placement of City-owned fiber optic cable

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of a Nonbinding Memorandum of Understanding with Lake Town Center Property Owners’ Association, Inc. regarding placement of fiber optic cable.

 

Analysis:

The City needs to directionally bore under a parking lot from the street to the edge of a building in order to provide communications services to a customer.  The property owner has declined to grant the City a standard utility easement.  Without a standard utility easement, any future repair to the cable may be difficult to arrange.  After studying the situation, staff has concluded that because the cable would be installed under a private parking lot, minimal risk exists regarding a potential future need to undertake such repairs.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the resolution, or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The City will spend approximately $6,200 to perform this customer installation work.  Those amounts are well within the Communications Utility’s capital budget for new customer installations.  The service order for the customer at this site will be structured with a two-year initial term, guaranteeing slightly over $10,000 of revenue.
