Item No: 4.C.1.
Meeting Date: April 9, 2012
From: Jim Lemberg – Manager, Communications Utility
Subject: Resolution authorizing a Customer Order with Level 3 Communications LLC for Internet bandwidth.
Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing a Customer Order with Level 3 Communications, LLC for upstream Internet bandwidth.
At its March 12, 2012 meeting, the Commission approved execution of an Internet Service Agreement with The School Board of Lake County, Florida. That agreement requires the City to provide 500 Megabits per second of Internet bandwidth to the Lake County Schools. The Customer Order contemplated by this resolution is for the Internet bandwidth the City will provide to the Schools.
1. Approve the resolution, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
This is a budgeted expense and the amount required for the months remaining in the current fiscal year is less than the amount of budgeted funds available. Appropriate amounts will be included in the coming fiscal year’s budget. The monthly fees that the City’s Communications Utility will receive from the Lake County Schools for Internet bandwidth will cover this cost plus provide margin for operating expenses.
