Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing a Services Agreement with the City of Groveland.
When Leesburg was constructing a portion of its fiber optic network in southern Lake County in the 2004-2005 timeframe, it agreed to provide one pair of optical fibers at no recurring charge to the City of Groveland in consideration for Groveland’s allowing Leesburg to route fiber optic cable through parts of Groveland. Earlier this year, Groveland notified Leesburg that it was ready for Leesburg to begin providing the promised fiber optic connectivity. Staff from Leesburg’s Communications Utility prepared a standard construction estimate, and Groveland’s City Council agreed to pay the construction costs that Leesburg will incur in extending its fiber to the specific sites that Groveland wishes to interconnect.
1. Approve the resolution, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Leesburg staff has estimated construction costs, and Groveland has agreed to pay that amount.
