Enabling/Regulating Authority

Florida Statute Chapter 125, Section 125.01 - Powers and Duties

Background Discussion
  • The County plans to install a sidewalk on the north side of Tallevast Road, extending easterly from 15th Street East approximately 2,980 feet.  The sidewalk will need to traverse an existing railroad right of way that is operated by Seminole Gulf.  Seminole Gulf is willing to accommodate the County's sidewalk within its right of way, but intends to take this opportunity to make certain improvements to the existing railroad crossing.

  • Seminole Gulf agrees to perform the Crossing Improvement Project at a cost of $113,250.00 which will cover all work to be performed and all materials to be furnished by Seminole Gulf in connection with the improvement of the crossing and sidewalk.  County agrees to pay the project cost as follows:
    • One half of the project cost ($56,625.00) is to be paid upon execution of this Agreement.  The balance is to be paid upon completion of Seminole Gulf's portion of the work. 
  • The execution of this Agreement will provide the funding to Seminole Gulf to construct this project.
