On March 19, 2018, the Town Commission approved executing an agreement with Benchmark Lady Lake 25 Associates, LLC in an effort to correct capacity constraints on the main collection line that serves the entire north end of Town by constructing approximately 3,900 lineal feet of 18-inch PVC sanitary sewer line.

This conveyance will satisfy the terms as agreed by the Town and Benchmark Lady Lake 25 Associates, LLC to reimburse the developer for final costs as outlined per the executed agreement. In addition to the developer expediting the project, the Town’s cost was significantly reduced from its original estimate of $636,725.00. The actual cost totaled $479,132.55; a 25 percent decrease.
The following items are included in the packet:
