Explanation of Other

The County Attorney’s Office reviewed a similar undertaking with FPL associated with the Southeast Water Reclamation Facility Building in 2015 and their opinion regarding this form was expressed in RLS 15-092.  We utilized this RLS in our review of the current form. With the exception of the deletion of section 8.(g), which serves to eliminate a County obligation to provide a meter enclosure, downpipe and elbow, the 2015 document and the current document are the same.
