AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           November 24, 2008

 

From:                          Kevin Cochrane, Communications Manager  

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an Agreement for Pole Attachment Services with Sumter Electric Cooperative, Inc.        

                                   

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to execute an agreement for Pole Attachment Services with Sumter Electric Cooperative, Inc

 

Analysis:

The City currently has a pole attachment agreement with Sumter Electric Cooperative, Inc. which expires in January 2009. The current agreement was for a term of ten years. The new agreement will replace the existing agreement and is for a term of ten years. The City has approximately seven hundred and twenty seven fiber optic cable attachments on SECO poles throughout Lake County. The City requires use of SECO poles because it is more cost effective to install fiber in an aerial configuration rather than underground.

 

There is a first addendum attached to the agreement which modifies the indemnification language of the agreement to meet the statute requirements for municipal indemnification. The addendum is to be signed at the same time the agreement is signed. The city attorney’s office has reviewed the agreement and the addendum.

 

Options:

1.   Approve the Resolution authorizing execution of an agreement with Sumter Electric Cooperative, Inc. or,

2.   Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The City of Leesburg will pay $13,297.00 for pole attachment rental fees during the next year. This charge is for 727 poles @ $18.29 per pole per year. The cost of the attachments is accounted for in the Utility’s operating budget.
