AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:              August 25, 2008

 

From:                           Edward F. Smyth, Jr., Deputy City Manager

 

Subject:                       Resolution Authorizing an Agreement with Simon Properties, Owners of the Lake Square Mall, for an Emergency Response Staging Area for the City’s Utility Operators

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of  an agreement with Simon Properties for an emergency response staging area for the utility operators.

Analysis:

The Mall Management Team contacted staff in July to offer the use of a portion of their parking lot to stage utility vehicles and equipment during emergency or disaster situations.  This agreement allows any of the City of Leesburg’s utility departments, and/or their contractors, to make use of the area East of JC Penney to stage equipment, vehicles and crews during emergencies or disaster recovery operations. 

The use of this area is a potential advantage during recovery operations where there is significant damage in the area.  This location provides a convenient location from which to dispatch and respond in this area.

Options:

1.  Approve the resolution;  or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

Fiscal Impact: 

There is no fiscal impact associated with accepting this agreement.
