Gainesville Citizens Care, Inc. vs City of Gainesville

GC-CARE advocated to protect the public interest with regard to a 30 year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) between the City of Gainesville d/b/a Gainesville Regional Utilities and the limited liabilty corporation GREC. This $3 billion to $4 billion contract is the most expensive contract into which the City has ever entered.

In April of 2012 GC-Care filed suit to have the PPA declared void ab intio as a result of having been negotiated in violation of Florida’s Sunshine Law.

A mediated settlement agreement was reached with the City on December 20, 2012 the City Commission in a 4-3 vote accepted the mediated agreement.

The agreement, among other things, required the Gainesville City Commission to hold its first ever public workshop of the GREC contract.
