Item No: 4.C.4.
Meeting Date: July 9, 2012
From: Jim Lemberg – Manager, Communications Utility
Subject: Resolution authorizing execution of a Fiber Connection Schedule with Level 3 Communications, LLC.
Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing execution of a Fiber Connection Schedule with Level 3 Communications, LLC.
The City’s Communications Utility is establishing a redundant connection to the Internet at Level 3’s network Point-of-Presence in Tavares, Florida. Level 3’s internal business processes, driven in large part by Sarbanes-Oxley Act requirements, require documentation specifying details and fees associated with such interconnection with other parties’ networks. As detailed in a separate agenda memo for this Commission meeting, the fees stated in this Schedule were effectively approved by Commission at its April 9, 2012 meeting when Commission approved a separate Customer Order with Level 3.
1. Approve the resolution, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The Schedule calls for monthly fees of six-hundred dollars. Those amounts are included in the Communications Utility’s current budget, and will be included in the Utility’s budgets for coming fiscal years. The Utility will cover those fees and associated operating costs through the revenues it earns from selling Internet bandwidth to its customers.
