Will you get me some help with what ‘appears’ to be missing?,” City Councilman Richard Winger wrote to the City Clerk today.
Though just two days remain before the FPL-controlled majority on the Vero Beach City Council will presumably approve a proposed purchase and sale agreement for the handover of Vero Electric, many documents appear still to be unavailable for review by members of the Council, or by the public.
Councilman Richard Winger today wrote the following email to City Clerk Tammy Bursick asking about documents that, presumably, will be part of the contract between the City and FPL.
Winger’s email to the City Clerk:
Because I know documents were still dribbling in Friday, I am suspicious more documents are missing and necessary for a review. In attempting to reconcile the tabs in this book with the index pages iv, v, and vi of the agreement to see what is missing, I come up with the following.
Tab 1 is the Contract with the addition of the following.
Tab 2 It the termination with OUC. I cannot find it in the list of exhibits.
Tab 3 is A-1 in Exhibits
Tab 4 is Exhibit A-2 in Exhibits
Tab 5 is Exhibit B – Bill of Sale for the System. But under this tab is Schedule I with nothing behind it. Is it misplaced?
Tab 6 is the Franchise Ordinance Exhibit E
Tab 7 is the Termination Agreement Exhibit F
Tab 8 is Exhibit D Seller’s Affidavit
Tab 9 is the movement of Substation 1 across the street. What Exhibit or Schedule is it?
Tab 10 is the Partial Sale Default of the IRS business. – Does it have an Exhibit or Schedule Associated?
Tab 11 is the sale of 15 parcels of property around the City. The last few are the tie line but for the rest it is almost impossible to know what we are selling. Is this Exhibit C? Obviously, we need to know what FPL is buying.
Tab 12 Must be Exhibit I-1A – Lease of Substation 5 at the airport.
Tab I is Exhibit P – Indian River Farm License.
Tab II is Exhibit 1-1B Substation 6 Lease at Airport.
Tab III apparently is Exhibit L-3 (not labeled) for dismantling the current substation #1.
Tab IV is L-1 – Fiber Optics Leasing to FPL
We also have further pieces as follows that came in later
Friday not yet tabbed in the Blue Book. They are:
A. Substation License and Access Agreement – What Exhibit or Schedule is this?
B. Exhibit Q – Indian River Farms Sublicense
C. Ground License Agreement with School Board and County. What Exhibit or Schedule is This.
Check me, but looking at the index of Schedules and Exhibits the missing ones appear to be:
Exhibit I-2 – Warehouse Lease
Exhibit J Current Form of Streetlight Agreement – But look at Exhibit B which involves this same subject
Exhibit L-2 Form of Substation Easement Agreement
Exhibit R Substation 20 Transmission
Exhibit S Power Plant Site Property Description
Exhibit T Grand harbor Property Description.
Exhibit U Acquired Substations and Certain Other FPUA Joint Facilities
Exhibit Y Form of Grounding Lease Agreement May be part of L-1
Schedules – There are 42 schedules listed on page v & vi some are fairly critical. Where are these 42 documents?
Will you get me some help with what “appears” to be missing?
What is really missing need be there in time for the meeting. We cannot vet an incomplete contract.
Also, I will need 3 hours with the attorney tomorrow. I see a number of issues which “appear” to cause the taxpayers unnecessary expense.
