Staff recommends approval of an agreement for Leased Fiber Optic Services with the Lake County Board of County Commissioners.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office wishes to connect a new facility at 15839 Old US Hwy 441, Tavares, Florida, to their data center located at 360 W. Ruby St., Tavares, Florida, by using the City of Leesburg’s fiber optic network [2 pairs of Dark Fiber]. The County Commission and the county attorney have signed the agreement, and the city attorney’s office has reviewed the agreement.
1. Approve the Resolution authorizing execution of an agreement with the Lake County Board of County Commissioners or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The City of Leesburg will realize additional revenue of $1,530.00 per month. The customer has agreed to fund 75% of the cost of the installation due to the significant distance from our fiber of their connection point. The estimated cost for installation of this connection is $24,929.00, of which the Sheriff’s Office is funding $18,360.00 through a pre-pay installation contribution. This pre-payment will provide one year’s credit for fiber optic service, after which our agreed upon monthly charge of $1,530.00 per month will commence. Funds are available for the City’s portion of the installation cost [$6,569.00]. Ongoing support costs are accounted for in the operating budget.
