AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           August 11, 2008

 

From:                          Kevin Cochrane, Communications Manager              

 

Subject:                      Telecommunications Rate Schedule Change  

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends authorizing a resolution changing the Telecommunications Rate Schedule, deleting the rate for dial-up internet service, and consolidating all previous City Commission approved telecommunications rate schedules.

 

Analysis:

The City approved Ordinance No. 02-74 October 28, 2002, which created a new Chapter 22, Article V, and Division 7 of the Code of Ordinances for the City of Leesburg, entitled “Telecommunications Services.”  This ordinance gave approval for service rates to be charged by the City for various Telecommunications Services.  The rates were consolidated September 12, 2005 by Resolution 7440. Additional rate changes have been approved for new services and rate increases since Resolution 7440 was approved. The City Commission is scheduled to approve a change in Ordinance 02-74  August 11, 2008, removing dial-up Internet service from the Telecommunications schedule. This Resolution, if approved by the City Commission, will remove the listing and rates for dial-up Internet service from the Telecommunications Rate Schedule, and consolidate all other Telecommunications Rates.

 

Options:

1. Authorize a resolution to change the Telecommunications Rate Schedule to remove dial-up Internet service, and consolidate all other Telecommunications Rates, or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

This resolution is presented to consolidate all telecommunications rates, and to remove dial-up Internet service rates. The removal of dial-up internet service will result in a loss of approximately $23,310.00 in annual revenue [based on 150 customers]. This action  will also result in a savings of $18,000.00 in annual expenditures for the service and support required.
