Ordinance No. 2016-77 granting Natural Gas Franchise Agreement for Peoples Gas System


The City of Orlando granted a non-exclusive Natural Gas Franchise to Peoples Gas System, a division of Tampa Electric Company, in 2006 for a ten year term (until 2016). Peoples Gas System/TECO and City staff have negotiated a new franchise agreement with the same terms as the previous Franchise Agreement, including the 6% Franchise Fee. The term of the non-exclusive franchise is ten (10) years through 2026, with an option to an additional ten (10) year renewal term upon agreement by Peoples Gas System/TECO and the City. Construction standards and specifications for the system in the City's rights-of-way are subject to the City’s approval and insurance and indemnification requirements are imposed. A non-assignability clause prevents the system from being transferred to another entity without the advance written approval of the City.

Fiscal & Efficiency Data:

The City will continue to receive franchise fee revenue for the use of the City’s rights-of-way.

Recommended Action:
Adoption of the attached Ordinance No. 2016-77 as drafted and authorization for the Mayor/Mayor Pro Tem and City Clerk to execute the same upon adoption, subject to review and approval by the City Attorney’s Office.

Agenda Item attachment(s) on file in the City Clerks Office.
