From:                          Darel W. Craine, Deputy Director, Environmental Services


Subject:                      Request to Grant Easement from City of Leesburg, Florida to The Plantation Residents Golf Club, Inc.



Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends granting an easement to The Plantation Residents Golf Club, Inc. (The Plantation) for property in Section 23, Township 20 South, Range 24 East. Analysis:

The proposed easement area consists of a retention pond which receives reclaimed water from a wastewater treatment plant owned and operated by the City of Leesburg, from which The Plantation currently pumps water to irrigate its golf course. The City plans to discontinue use of the wastewater treatment plant and to supply The Plantation with treated wastewater for irrigation from another of its wastewater treatment plants, and charging The Plantation the applicable rate for treated wastewater.  This easement is for the sole purpose of onsite storage of treated wastewater supplied by The City and for no other purpose whatsoever. This easement shall terminate immediately if The Plantation ceases to be a customer of The City for the purpose of purchasing treated wastewater for irrigation purposes.



1.  Approve granting of easement to The Plantation Residents Golf Club, Inc., or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate


Fiscal Impact

The City will incur no costs in granting the easement.
