Action Requested
  • Execution of Underground Distribution Facilities Installation Agreement between Manatee County and Florida Power and Light Company; and
  • Execution and Recording of Easement to Florida Power and Light Company.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statutes Chapter 125, County Government

Background Discussion
  • Bennett Park has two electronic gates.  However, the rear gate does not have electricity and is manually opened and closed each day.
  • When Bennett Park was constructed the contractor installed conduit and connector boxes to the gate without an easement to Florida Power and Light (FPL) to provide electricity.
  • FPL's existing underground system is a "radial" feed that originates at the main entrance and extends westward into the park for approximately 1,200 feet.  
  • This easement will allow for 120 volt power to the rear gate providing lighting for improved safety.
  • Bennett Park has long-range plans for an additional pavilion and restrooms that will also have the ability to be supplied power from this easement.
