RECOMMENDATION
Approve execution of a Service Agreement with Spectrum Enterprise for enterprise fiber cable TV service at the Courthouse and the Jail.
BACKGROUND
Cable TV services at the Courthouse and the Jail cease to work on May 15th. All the TVs are currently using the “analogue” service, which Spectrum is deactivating across the country. IT is researching the needs at the jail (for phase 2), but the courthouse has nearly 30 TVs. Since this requires a new contract and services will need to expand, A “Master” agreement covering fiber, coax, SIP, etc is needed. Near-future-expansion include: • Jail cable TV service (unfunded but no choice) • EOC cable TV service (part of the “improvements” to prepare for next storm) • All future cable TV drops (outsourcing solution for absorbed Public Works responsibilities) • Padre Balli Park Nueces County fiber (funded expansion)
DISCUSSION
The IT department will absorb both the reoccurring ($1,115/mo.) and installation costs ($2,500).
