Although I appreciate the Public Service <br />Commission staff support of the termination of the existing territorial agreement between FPL <br />and the City of Vero Beach and the charging of FPL rates, I am extremely disappointed that <br />the Public Service Commission staff opposed the sale as structured "and negotiated by the <br />parties and unanimously approved by the Florida Municipal Power Agency. <br />The acquisition is intended to bring much-needed rate relief to the residents of the <br />City of Vero Beach, and those residents in the unincorporated areas of Indian River County <br />and the Town of Indian River Shores that are currently served by the City of Vero Beach, <br />1801 27th Street, Building A <br />Vero Beach, FL 32960 <br />(772) 226-1490 <br />
