EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

Recommendation to approve the Easement Agreement with Bradstrom Village Condominium Association, Inc., a Florida not-for-profit corporation (“Sellers”), at a cost not to exceed $4,553 for the acquisition of a Utility Easement for proposed water and wastewater infrastructure improvements, Project Number 70043.

 

 

OBJECTIVETo purchase a utility easement which will provide safer access and install a permanent generator for Pump Station 300.06 as a reliable back-up power source in Basin 300.  The public purpose is to bring outdated or inadequate utility infrastructure into compliance with current county standards while meeting the demand for service, improving reliability, protecting public safety, and providing proactive environmental protection.

CONSIDERATIONSA perpetual, non-exclusive utility easement is necessary.  The Sellers are willing to grant an easement for future water and wastewater service to Collier County Water Sewer District at the cost of its appraised value.

FISCAL IMPACTThe total outlay should not exceed $4,553 ($3,553 for the utility easement and approximately $1,000 for title commitment, title policy, and recording of documents).  Funding is available in the Gravity Sewers Project 70043 in Wastewater Capital Fund (414).  The source of funding is from wastewater user fees.
