Background Discussion

The County Capital Improvement Program Project No. 6040460: 9th Street East from 53rd Avenue East to 57th Avenue East was adopted by the Board of County Commissioners in 2004.  The scope of the project is to "Upgrade the existing two lane roadway to a new four lane divided roadway facility with sidewalks and streetlights".  The 2007 design incorporates the installation of 18 FPL owned street lights installed by the utility company, Florida Power and Light (FPL). In order to continue servicing the lights, FPL requires an agreement with Manatee County, whereby FPL will provide power service and maintenance of the 18 street lights for an average 2012 monthly rate of $15.83 per street light.  This is a total of $3,419.04 per year for power and maintenance of 18 street lights.


Staff recommends authorization for the Chairman to execute the FPL Streetlight Agreement.
