Item No: 4.C.2.
Meeting Date: August 13, 2012
From: Raymond S. Sharp, Public Works Director
Subject: Cable Easement to CenturyLink on city’s north spraysite property at CR 470
Staff recommends approval of the Cable Easement.
Embarq Florida, Inc. d/b/a as CenturyLink has requested a cable easement to access the communications tower located on the city’s north spraysite property at CR 470. Previous easements have generally followed an access road which threads through the middle of the property. This may interfere with future uses of the property.
Therefore, this non-exclusive easement follows the western edge of the property line, adjacent to the turnpike. This location will remain clear of any future use or redevelopment of the spraysite property. There are no adverse impacts associated with the easement.
1. Authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute the attached easement; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
There is no direct fiscal impact to the city. The easement may result in future additions to the communications tower by third parties and lease payments to the city for any facilities associated with such additions. These are unknown at this time.
