MINUTES OF REGULAR MEETING OF BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
MONDAY – OCTOBER 6, 1969
The Board of County Commissioners convened in regular session in the County Commissioners’ Room in the Courthouse, Tavares, Florida, on Monday, October 6, 1969, at 9:00 o’clock A.M. with the following members present: Commissioner Windram, Chairman; Commissioners Carson, Macdonell, Hoskinson and VanAuken. Others present were County Attorney C. E. Duncan, Clerk of Circuit Court Frank E. Owens, County Engineer Gordon Hays, Jr., and Deputy Clerk Norma Coven.
The meeting was called to order by Chairman Windram and the invocation was given by Mr. Hays.
On motion of Commissioner Hoskinson seconded by Commissioner Carson and carried, the minutes of August 4, 1979 were approved as submitted.
On motion of Commissioner Hoskinson seconded by Commissioner Macdonell and carried, the minutes of August 11, 1969 and August 14, 1969 were approved as submitted.
With reference to the minutes of September 2, 1979, Commissioner Hoskinson said, “with reference to the Dora Canal project, I felt that a vital part of this discussion was the statement made by our Clerk to the public that the contingency fund was ample to cover the acquisition costs of this park and any other contingency that might arise during the year, and I think the minutes should reflect this.”
The record recites as follows: Mr. Macdonell asked the Clerk, “Is there plenty contingency to cover this?”
Mr. Owens: “You have an item of $10,000 and also you have contingency and that is also true of your present budget.”
Mr. Macdonell: “Do you think there is ample contingency to cover any unexpected costs?”
Mr. Owens: “You have a total of a little over $43,000 set up in the budget for a contingency item for the coming year. There will have to be some adjustments made that you have already discussed when the budget becomes operative on October 1.”
Mr. Macdonell: “Do you think the item is adequate that we can invite possibly more expenses?”
Mr. Owens” “Well, I don’t know. All these years they anticipated the cost of that (Dora Canal) at $10,000 and you have that much set up in there (69-70 Budget). You have a balance of $10,400 (68-69 Budget). Do not know how soon they can bring it to a conclusion, but if they did, it is close to the end of the year, you could put up money from the old budget and when the new one becomes effective, for any deficiency you could use that $10,000, but I think there is contingency in this year’s budget. There is more contingency in the present budget than in the new budget.”
Mr. Hoskinson: “But you feel the contingencies are adequate to cover other contingencies and this amount – any amount of money that will be required here also? Is this right?”
Mr. Owens: “Have you gotten your statement? I would say – I will go in and get the balances and let you know.”
On motion of Commissioner Hoskinson seconded by Commissioner Macdonell and carried, the minutes of September 2, 1969 and September 3, 1969 were approved.
On motion of Commissioner Hoskinson seconded by Commissioner VanAuken and carried, the minutes of the September 8, 1969 meeting were approved as submitted.
W. M. Haywood, Jr., President of the Tavares City Council, appeared relative to the City using the County’s facilities and personnel to aid in the development of a master plan for the City of Tavares and update and revise the Zoning Ordinances. On motion of Commissioner Hoskinson, seconded by Commissioner Carson and carried, the Planning Department was authorized to render planning services to the City of Tavares on a cost accounting basis and that the Planning Director consider a future system to charge the municipalities on a retainer basis.
Mr. Macdonell asked the Clerk the status of the financial condition of the MVI stations. Mr. Owens advised the income exceeds the outgo and when we collect the balance of the money from the State, we hope to be able to pay off two of $25,000 notes.
Commissioner Macdonell moved that a wall space approximately 4’ x 4’ be set aside in the Courthouse for the Safety Council to hang safety awards. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Hoskinson and carried.
On motion of Commissioner Macdonell seconded by Commissioner Hoskinson and carried, the Board authorized the closing of the Stuckey pit west of Mascotte and that “no dumping” signs be erected. Paul Milton, Mosquito Control Director, was present and reported the machine that covers this pit broke down last week and we are pulling the machine from the Clermont dump today to cover this one. Mr. Milton further stated the smaller dumps are being used by the cities and we have to bury their garbage. Recommended that the cities continue to use the larger dumps.
Mr. Milton reported he has located a site on the WLBE Road that will be adequate to serve the Bassville Park and Lisbon areas. Commissioner VanAuken requested that approval of this site be withheld until he views the property in question.
Mr. Milton also reported on the number of fires being started at the dump sites by persons unknown. The fires do not hurt anything but they are in violation of the air and water pollution laws. If this problem occurs when dump sites are established in the Ocala National Forest, we will be breaking our agreement with the Forest Service. The Board Members concurring, Chairman Windram asked Mr. Milton to encourage the attendants to be more observant and attempt to apprehend the culprits. Mr. Milton said he will have appropriate signs posted at all the pits.
It now being the time advertised to receive bids on the following items, the Chairman directed the Clerk to open and tabulate the bids, whereupon Clerk Owens reported receiving the following bid:
Cleveland M. Kuharske $201.00 with the provision that the County will have the right to mine clay for a period of 5 years.
Commissioner Macdonell said this provision is in error, the stipulation was for the County to use the property as a landfill site; whereupon, he moved that the bid from Mr. Kuharske be accepted with the provision that the County lease the property for a landfill site at the rate of $1.00 per year for a five year period, with the right of renewal. The motion was seconded by Commissioner VanAuken and carried.
