Item No: 4.C.4.
Meeting Date: June 25, 2012
From: Jim Lemberg – Manager, Communications Utility
Subject: Resolution authorizing acknowledgment of cancellation of Fiber Optic Facilities License by Level 3 Communications, Inc.
Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing acknowledgment of the cancellation of a Fiber Optic Facilities License by Level 3 Communications, Inc.
Level 3 Communications, Inc. is the successor in interest of Progress Telecommunications Corporation (“Progress”). The City and Progress entered an agreement on May 8, 2000, under which Progress leased six pairs of dark fibers from the City for an annual of $25,000 from Progress to the City. Per the terms of the agreement, it may be terminated by the “written agreement of the parties.” (section 11.1(b) of the agreement). The City uses Level 3 Communications, Inc. as its upstream Internet provider, and we are in the course of turning up additional Internet bandwidth. Staff will likely use this termination as leverage in the continuing relationship with Level 3.
1. Approve the resolution, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The Communications Utility’s revenues for fiscal year 2012-2013 will be reduced by $25,000.
