It was noted that the lease would be for approximately three years.
Commr. Swartz stated that he is concerned with using this much money to renovate a building that will be rented, and only making contact with two contractors to perform this task. He stated that he felt the Home Builders Association should be made aware of such matters, so that more contractors can participate in the bidding process.
Mr. Thelen stated that, because of the timing, the proposal approach was used rather than bid advertisement, which fits the County policy to proceed, due to time constraints.
Mr. Anderson informed the Board that four contractors were contacted, with interest only being shown by two of the contractors. He stated that several were not interested in remodeling, and the time frame was another issue.
Commr. Swartz stated that he would like to see a broader contractor involvement from those who would like to bid on a County project. He stated that he had no problem with waiving the bid portion of an emergency project, but would like to see greater involvement. Commr. Swartz further suggested that the County go to the Homebuilders Association when the regular bid process is not going to be used.
On a motion by Commr. Bailey, seconded by Commr. Gregg and carried unanimously, the board approved to contract with Emmett Sapp Builders, Inc. for remodeling of the second floor of rental space above the County Attorney's Office, at an estimated cost of $15,900.00; and approval to transfer funds, in the amount of $18,500.00 from the General Fund Contingency to the General Fund Health Department Repair and Maintenance, as discussed above.

On a motion by Commr. Bailey, seconded by Commr. Gregg and carried unanimously, the Board approved a six month extension on the mobile home bond agreement for Mr. James E. Hilliard.
At this time, the Board discussed confusion in the request being presented for an extension in the name of Mr. James E. Hilliard, and the request being made by Mr. Williams.

She stated that the Board had discussed the possibility of using special assessments in the future, in lieu of the ad valorem taxation.

PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT/ORDINANCES
At 10:00 a.m., the Chairman announced that the advertised time had arrived for the public hearing on the proposed ordinance amending Chapter 17, Lake County Code, Planning and Development, Article V, on Tree Protection and Landscaping. It was noted that the proper proof of publication was on hand as it appeared in The Orlando Sentinel, The Lake Sentinel.
Ms. Annette Star Lustgarten, County Attorney, addressed the proposed ordinance regarding the irrigation plan, requiring that, if it is not ready at the time the time plan is submitted, that there will be notation that an automatic irrigation system will be installed, in compliance with the ordinance, prior to the issuance of a CO (Certificate of Occupancy). She further stated that all of the language was taken out that previously required that a landscape plan be prepared by a landscape architect. The only language now states that, if landscape plans are prepared by a landscape architect, that they be sealed, as required by State Statute. Ms. Lustgarten stated that language was also added that indicates the Department of Environmental Services will process the review.
Mr. Greg Beliveau, Land Planning Group, appeared before the Board to discuss the proposed ordinance.
Ms. Lustgarten stated that there is no requirement that landscape plans be submitted by a landscape architect. It states that, if a landscape plan is submitted by a landscape architect, that those plans need to be sealed by a landscape architect registered pursuant to State Statute.
Mr. Beliveau stated that he wished to go on record objecting to the interpretation being given for sealed plans. He stated that he will file a letter from the State, which gives an interpretation of State Statute, that plans do not have to be submitted to a public agency in a sealed fashion, except for those exemptions in the Florida Statutes that are listed.
Ms. Lustgarten stated that she has a copy of the letter, and that she felt it was an advisory opinion, with the Statute not making it mandatory.
Mr. Beliveau stated that he does want to go on record in opposition, and recommended that it be amended to require a registered landscape architect to submit landscape plans.
On a motion by Commr. Gregg, seconded by Commr. Bailey and carried unanimously, the Board approved Ordinance 1990-21, as follows:
