Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing agreement #AP822 with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for eligibility in the FDOT State Highway Lighting, Maintenance, and Compensation Program.
This FDOT program began in FY 1997/1998 with various local governments to allow the FDOT to reimburse local governments for a portion of the cost to maintain and operate highway lighting on the state highway system. For highway lighting, the reimbursement rate is no greater than the statewide standard rate. The attached table is a summary of the locations of highway lights in the state highway system that are located within the City of Leesburg limits, and eligible for partial reimbursement from the FDOT.
Each year the city and the FDOT must agree on the number of highway lights for reimbursement, whereas a work order will be issued that indicates the new compensation to be paid. This initial executed agreement is all that will be required for future years.
1. City Commission approval of agreement #AP822 with the FDOT, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
