Meeting Date:           May 26, 2009

 

From:                          Jay M. Evans, City Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an agreement with Simon Property Group, owners of the Lake Square Mall, for an emergency response staging area for the City of Leesburg’s utility operators

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

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

 

Analysis:

The mall management team contacted staff 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 City of Leesburg utility department and/or their contractors to make use of the area east of JC Penney to stage equipment, vehicles and crews during emergency 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 site provides a convenient location from which to dispatch and respond in this area.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the agreement with Simon Properties;  or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact:

There is no fiscal impact associated with accepting this agreement.
