Item No: 4.C.3.
Meeting Date: September 10, 2012
From: Jim Lemberg – Manager, Communications Utility
Subject: Resolution authorizing an Encroachment Agreement with Florida Gas Transmission Company, LLC.
Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing an Encroachment Agreement with Florida Gas Transmission Company, LLC (FGT).
The City has previously entered into an agreement with Lake County Schools which will require the City’s Communications Utility to extend fiber cables to several new school sites. Part of that construction will require placement of cable in an underground conduit near the intersection of Wolf Branch Road and County Road 437. That conduit will pass over a gas pipeline owned by FGT. This encroachment agreement is the formal document under which FGT is willing for the conduit to be placed in near proximity to its pipeline.
1. Approve the resolution, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
