SUBJECT: Georgia Power Laydown Lease Agreement - 3321 Buena Vista Road

INITIATED BY: Planning Department


Recommendation: Approval is requested to enter into a lease agreement with the Georgia Power Company (GPC) for a laydown lease agreement at 3321 Buena Vista Road.

Background: GPC has plans to work on the Bull Creek Substation which is located adjacent to 3321 Buena Vista Road, a parcel owned by the city. GPC would need access to the site as soon as possible and continued access through the end of January 2019. The site will be used to store cranes, bucket trucks, materials, etc. while working on the substation and a fence would be installed to protect the GPC construction equipment/materials. The fence would be removed once the substation project and restoration efforts are complete.

Analysis: The site is currently vacant and is suitable for this proposed short-term lease for the purpose of servicing the adjacent electrical substation.

Financial Considerations: Standard lease agreement total costs of $10.00 are recommended for this project.

Projected Annual Fiscal Impact Statement: There are no annual fiscal impact costs anticipated with this agreement

Legal Considerations: The City Attorney has reviewed this proposed lease agreement and has approved.

Recommendations/ Actions: Approval is requested to enter into a lease agreement with the Georgia Power Company (GPC) for a laydown lease agreement at 3321 Buena Vista Road.
