AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           June 23, 2008

 

From:                          Raymond S. Sharp, Director, Environmental Services/Public Works

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing a Utility Service Agreement with K & M Properties of Florida, LLC

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the Utility Service Agreement with K & M Properties of Florida, LLC.

 

Analysis:

Some time ago, Prestige Ready Mix relocated their concrete plant to Jim Rogers Industrial Park.  Lake County required Prestige Ready Mix to connect to central water and sewer.  Subsequently, the ownership of Prestige Ready Mix was transferred to K & M Properties of Florida, LLC.  This agreement is with K & M Properties of Florida, LLC. 

 

As is customary with such connections, the City required the connection to be made at the developer’s expense.  This utility service agreement defines the conditions under which the City will provide water and wastewater service to K & M Properties of Florida, LLC.  In brief, the developer is required to furnish appropriate easements and convey ownership of the completed system to the City.

 

A Utility Construction Reimbursement (Pioneering) Agreement is presented separately.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the Utility Service Agreement as presented, or;

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The lift station and line extensions provided under this Agreement will be conveyed to the City upon satisfactory completion.  This will facilitate the connection of additional properties to the City’s central water and sewer systems, as they develop in the future.  The City will be able to convert fire protection in the Industrial Park to the central water system, and decommission the dedicated fire well that is presently providing fire protection.  Overall, the latter action will result in reduced costs of operation and maintenance, while providing improved reliability of fire protection in the area.
