AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           March 14, 2011

 

From:                          Jim Lemberg – Manager, Communications Utility

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an agreement with The School Board of Lake County, Florida under which the City will collocate communications equipment at School sites

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of an agreement under which the City will collocate communications equipment at School sites.

 

Analysis:

By locating equipment away from its physical core (at City Hall), the Communications Utility can more economically provide managed communications services to its customers having locations in outlying communities such as Clermont, Eustis, Mount Dora and The Villages.  By using an existing customer’s sites to collocate such equipment, the Utility saves itself the cost of extending its network to collocation sites to which its fiber does not yet extend.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the resolution, or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

These amounts are not in the current fiscal budget, but will be offset by increased revenues that the Utility will realize as a result of collocating equipment at the sites
