RECOGNITION OF BARRY BARNETT FOR DONATION OF ART PIECES FOR
Ms. Pam Steinke, R.N., M.A., Administrator of the Lake County Health Department, stated that Mr. Barry Barnett was an artist of international note, whose works hang in private, commercial, and institutional collections in 28 countries. She noted that his contributions towards environmental and humanitarian concerns have been recognized by state and national leaders and that he has contributed his works to benefit medical research and patient care, including his most recent donations of several hundred thousands of dollars in fine art to over 21 Department of Health clinics. She commented that they were thankful to Mr. Barnett for his beautiful works that they would be putting in their new clinic in Umatilla this afternoon and that the ribbon cutting would be on Thursday.
Mr. Barnett related that they have topped contributions for
40 health clinics throughout the state, with the goal to do every health clinic
in the state free of charge. He
mentioned that he received inspiration to give back to the community from his
mother, who was a health care worker and who has worked with him from the
beginning. He pointed out some of the
pieces which were displayed, including Egrets of Astor Crossing and Easy
Pickings, both subjects taken from local wildlife, as well as one depicting one
of the four bears residing on his property.
He also hoped that these paintings would belong to the people of
Sheriff Borders commented that they were successful in Mr. Barnett’s community because of his involvement in his community. He stated that he worked well with them, illustrating that it took the community to stand together to help them keep it safe, which is what they stressed throughout the County.
Commr. Cadwell invited everyone to the ribbon cutting at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 5 at the new health department in Umatilla.
PRESENTATION – JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT OF
Ms. Cathy Sleaford, Director, Junior Achievement of Lake County, thanked the School Board for their role in promoting the partnership between Junior Achievement and the schools and commented that the support that they have given them has been tremendous and allowed them to do what they do. She initially gave some statistics about the large amount of debt and lack of financial knowledge of many teenagers, as well as statistics regarding the financial consequences of the high school drop-out rate. She commented that economic education was critical for economic development and our community’s future. She explained that Junior Achievement (JA) was the leading non-profit provider of business and economic education programs for school-aged students and was a partnership between the business community, educators, and volunteers to inspire young people to reach their potential and to become successful by teaching business, entrepreneurship, workforce readiness, and personal economics. She reported that Junior Achievement was founded in 1919 and that it had a history of performance, including greatly increasing the high school graduation rate for those having at least three JA experiences and resulting in more positive attitudes and greater career aspirations than comparison students. She also noted that students also learned from JA how to relate to a future career, to value education, positive work ethics, leadership skills, and cooperation, as well as gaining the realization that the community cares about them.
Ms. Sleaford related that the delivery of their programs in
Commr. Stewart commented that as a former teacher, she had JA come into her classroom at every opportunity and wanted to reinforce the fact that this was an excellent program. She added that the students loved it, that it opened their minds to a new way of looking at their future, and that they learned so much. She opined that any investment put into JA would result in good returns for the County.
Commr. Cadwell stated that School Board Member Cindy Barrow, who was a strong supporter of JA along with the rest of the School Board, regretted that she could not be there for this presentation due to a scheduling conflict. He noted that the School Board has expressed their strong commitment to Junior Achievement and helping it grow and commented that the Board needed to be a partner also.
Ms. Sleaford opined that the
RECESS AND REASSEMBLY
At 10:05, the Chairman announced that there would be a ten-minute recess.
INTERLOCAL AGREEMENTS WITH CITY OF
Mr. Jim Stivender Jr., Public Works Director, stated that Tab
10 was regarding some annexations and explained that about six months ago, the
police departments of both Eustis and
Commr. Stewart was concerned that the citizens living along
those roads would have some concerns, and she confirmed with Mr. Stivender that
by doing this, it could not be used for any further annexations. She also understood that this was strictly to
ensure better safety on the roads so that
Mr. Sandy Minkoff,
Commr. Stivender asked if there was a discussion of who was going to maintain those roads.
Mr. Stivender stated that there was a change in State law in
1993 when it came to transfer of roads basing it all on mutual agreements, but
the dilemma was the condition of the county road at the time of transfer. He noted that they were working on using
impact fees to make improvements to
On a motion by Commr. Stewart, seconded by Commr. Renick and carried unanimously by a vote of 5-0, the Board approved Tab 10, the request from Public Works for approval and execution of the Interlocal Agreements and City Annexation Petitions with the City of Mount Dora for the annexation and transfer of jurisdiction and maintenance for a portion of a county maintained roadway known as Niles Road; also for annexation only of portions of Britt Road, CR 19A, Old Highway 441, Wolf Branch Road, and Round Lake Road.
MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING WITH LIFESTREAM
Commr. Renick had some reservations about Tab 5, which was for approval of the Memorandum of Understanding between LifeStream and the County for implementation of the Criminal Justice, Mental Health and Substance Abuse (CJMH&SA) Reinvestment Grant, in light of the current budget situation. She was concerned that they would not be able to put this study to use once it was completed due to funding concerns and pointed out that they already had the pre-booking crisis intervention training in place. Even though she thought this would be a very good program, in light of the limited amount of money that was currently available for community services, they did not want to do away with any of the programs they had in place now.
Mr. Fletcher Smith, Community Services Director, explained that the local match was already budgeted and that the Memorandum of Understanding with DCF (The Department of Children and Families) was approved about a month and a half ago. He clarified that this was simply to execute an agreement with LifeStream to cover their cost for doing the work.
Commr. Cadwell commented that he thought that this would be a plan that would have a rational application to it and would end up saving the County money that was currently being spent in the jail budget.
Mr. Smith reported that the Public Safety Coordinating
Council was planning to do a presentation on June 17 on the Jail and Justice
System Assessment. He pointed out that
Commr. Renick stated that she understood that, but she thought that they had to get more people trained in the pre-booking crisis intervention training that the County already had rather than spending money to have another study done.
Mr. Smith added that LifeStream was providing training to law enforcement officers out in the community to try to look at what was causing criminal behavior, which diverted a lot of people from the jail to LifeStream already.
Mr. Minkoff pointed out that this grant was part of a two-step grant process, and they could not apply for the actual implementation monies until they did this first study.
Commr. Hill stated that this would be a continuation of the programs they already had in place, and this would help with implementing the next step to see what programs would be the most viable and how much value there would be to the matching money.
Commr. Cadwell commented that this money would give them leverage to possibly receive $300,000, even though they might not spend that much over three years.
On a motion by Commr. Hill, seconded by Commr. Stivender and carried unanimously by a vote of 5-0, the Board approved Tab 5, the request from Community Services for approval of the Memorandum of Understanding between Lake County and LifeStream Behavioral Center for implementation of the CJMH&SA Reinvestment Grant.
ADVERTISEMENT FOR BIDS FOR DEWEY ROBBINS ROAD PROJECTS
Commr. Renick expressed concern that the
Commr. Stivender pointed out that it was not done before, even though it had been listed on previous programs, because they did not have the right of way.
Commr. Cadwell also noted that the prices were different at that time. He explained that the impact fees were collected in the benefit district and not particularly for a specific road or project and commented that these roads were collector roads.
Commr. Renick stated that she was concerned it would be putting traffic through a very rural area.
Commr. Stivender also stated that they have had continuous complaints about the road because the school buses had not been able to get down that road to pick up the children.
Commr. Cadwell added that they have had a bus accident on that road.
Mr. Jim Stivender, Jr., Public Works Director, explained that the road has been on the program since 1997 and that the road extended from US Highway 27 to State Road 19. He stated that the first phase was built around that same era of the late 1990’s and that the plan was to come back at a later date and finish the project. He mentioned that two years ago they had the entire project on the program, but when the price escalated and there were cutbacks, they funded just to the intersection. He went on to explain that when the prices of this project came in under budget, they realized that they could complete the remaining portion of the link of the project that was originally intended with the leftover funds for that.
On a motion by Commr. Stivender, seconded by Commr. Renick, and carried unanimously by a vote of 5-0, the Board approved Tab 12, a request from Public Works to advertise for bids for the #2824 Dewey Robbins Road “Part” and #2625 South Dewey Robbins Road “Part” Paving Project No. 2008-07 at an estimated cost of $772,500 from the Road Impact Fee Fund, Benefit District 4.
AMENDMENT TO FY 2006-09 LOCAL HOUSING ASSISTANCE PLAN
Mr. Fletcher Smith, Community Services Director, stated that
they were requesting approval to send to the State three amendments to the
Local Housing Assistance Plan (LHAP). He
reported that the first one was a way to increase efficiency and to provide
better customer service to the Home Purchase Program applicants, the second one
was to utilize SHIP (State Housing Initiatives Partnership) funds for
development of housing affordable to low and moderate income households, and
the third was to update
Commr. Cadwell commented that there was a lot of discussion on the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee about this, because the classes got so large that they had to reduce the amount of people in the classes by making sure that the ones that attended were only those who were qualified at that time for the program.
Mr. Smith added that Affordable Housing by Lake was one of
the agencies qualified to do the home buyer education, and they were still
waiting to get the contract signed with the City of
Commr. Cadwell commented that the City of
Mr. Smith specified that they were spending about $28,000 per unit to renovate them.
On a motion by Commr. Stivender, seconded by Commr. Hill, and carried unanimously by a vote of 5-0, the Board approved Tab 23, a request from Community Services for approval of Resolution No. 2008-83 amending the FY 2006-09 Local Housing Assistance Plan and directing the Department of Community Services to transmit the revised Plan to the Florida Housing Finance Corporation.
GUARANTEED MAXIMUM PRICE FOR COOPER MEMORIAL LIBRARY
Ms. Wendy Breeden, Library Services Director, stated that they have reached a milestone and needed the Board’s approval for the Cooper Memorial Library project at Lake-Sumter Community College (LSCC) for the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) in order to move forward. She reported that they were mostly on schedule, but in order to meet the guidelines for the Library Construction Grant with the State, they needed to have a GMP by June 23.
Mr. Dick Scott, Lake-Sumter Community College Vice President of Administrative Affairs, stated that they were anxious to continue this project and have crossed a major milestone in the last several months. He stated that there had been some trepidation because they were not sure if they had enough money based on the conditions that they were seeing and all the cost estimates that they were getting, and the legislature did not fund the matching project. However, he was happy to report that the College Board stepped up at their last meeting to express belief in the importance of the project and the partnership and offered to fund this out of their money and to seek funding from the State in the future, which was a gamble on their part. He also reported that they finally got the GMP through PPI, the construction manager. He pointed out that it initially came in at $12,836,859, but they further reduced that down to $12,717,769, which was a reduction of $810,000 and brought the project well within their budget. He commented that they have had stellar cooperation from Ms. Breeden and all the library staff and from Mr. Jim Bannon, Director of Capital Construction and his department in designing the facility and working through the GMP. He reported that their other partners at University of Central Florida (UCF) had given them $5,000 and would be giving them another check at the end of this fiscal year. He also recognized the Friends of the Library, who have raised over $300,000 for this project, which they were currently seeking a match on. He concluded that the construction crew was standing by and that an invitation would be sent to the Board for the official groundbreaking on June 30 at 9:00 a.m. He added that the grand opening of the library was expected to be in July of 2009.
On a motion by Commr. Hill, seconded by Commr. Renick, and carried unanimously by a vote of 5-0, the Board approved Tab 24, the request for approval of the Guaranteed Maximum Price for Cooper Memorial Library at LSCC.
TRANSFER OF OPERATION OF LAW LIBRARY TO COUNTY
Ms. Breeden stated that they were requesting the Board’s final approval for the transfer of the Law Library from the Clerk of Courts operation to Community Services/Library Services, which included the transfer of one staff position. She related that a lot of the materials would be in storage for the duration while the joint use Cooper Memorial Library was under construction, and then they would be housed there. She explained that the online database for Westlaw would be available at all the libraries. She commented that while they were decreasing some access, they were making the access available all over the County, and she hoped this would be a win-win situation for everyone.
Commr. Hill thanked the Clerk for working with the County on this project, and she commented that she thought it would expand and that all of the citizens would be able to access it easier.
Ms. Breeden pointed out that there was one change from part of the narrative in how the monies would be transferred.
Ms. Cindy Hall,
On a motion by Commr. Hill, seconded by Commr. Stivender, and carried unanimously by a vote of 5-0, the Board approved Tab 25, a request for final approval to transfer operation of the Law Library to Community Services/Library Services effective July 1, 2008, approval of associated Form 9 transferring one position to Library Services/Cooper Memorial Library, approval of Budget transfer to operate the Law Library for the remainder of FY 2007/08, and approval and signature of Westlaw online database subscription agreement, pending County Attorney approval.
FIRST AMENDMENT TO EXTEND EMPLOYERS MUTUAL, INC. CONTRACT
Mr. Barnett Schwartzman, Procurement Services Director, stated that Tab 27 dealt with the contract extension on behalf of Employee Services for the third-party administrator for general liability and workers’ compensation claims. He related that the additional time provided with this extension would allow Employee Services an opportunity to more closely review the current programs, functions and needs prior to placing these services out for competitive bid, so this was a request to extend for another year. He mentioned that the reason that it had come before the Board as a departmental item was because of the dollar value.
On a motion by Commr. Stivender, seconded by Commr. Hill, and carried unanimously by a vote of 5-0, the Board approved Tab 27, a request from Procurement for approval and execution of the First Amendment to Employers Mutual, Inc. to extend the contract for one additional year, through September 30, 2009.
AWARD TO REYNOLDS, SMITH AND HILLS, INC.
Mr. Schwartzman stated that Tab 28 was a contract award for
architectural services for an addition to the warehouse to add space for record
retention. He commented that basically
it was a competitive process following the architectural Statutes by the State
On a motion by Commr. Hill, seconded by Commr. Stivender, and carried unanimously by a vote of 5-0, the Board approved the request from Procurement for Reynolds, Smith and Hills, Inc. to receive the award in the amount of $118,200 plus $2500 reimbursables with a contingency of $10,000 to be used at the discretion of Mr. Jim Bannon, the director of Facilities Development and Management.
AWARD TO D.A.B. CONSTRUCTORS, INC.
Mr. Schwartzman informed the Board that this was the first time they had done a term and supply contract for any type of road resurfacing, because usually they were done project by project, but Public Works had an initiative to try to come up with a structure that would allow them to be more responsive to specific situations as they arose. He stated that it was competed and they were recommending award to the low bidder, but it was before the Board because of the high dollar value.
On a motion by Commr. Stivender, seconded by Commr. Hill, and carried unanimously by a vote of 5-0, the Board approved Tab 29, the request from Procurement for award of ITB 09-0004 to D.A.B. Constructors, Inc.
On a motion by Commr. Stivender, seconded by Commr. Renick, and carried unanimously by a vote of 5-0, the Board gave the County Attorney approval to go forward with the purchase of the Akron Meadows LLC property.
