REPORTS - COUNTY ATTORNEY
ORDINANCE - APPROVAL TO ADVERTISE - TRAFFIC EDUCATION FUNDING
Mr. Minkoff presented the request for approval to advertise an ordinance amending Section 9-15, Lake County Code, entitled “Collection of Additional Costs in Civil Traffic Penalty Cases,” in order to reflect that all programs applying for traffic education funding under the section must comply with statutory requirements. On June 15, 2004, the Board adopted Ordinance 2004-41 authorizing the clerk of court to collect additional costs in civil traffic penalty cases pursuant to Section 318.1215, Florida Statutes, entitled the “Dori Slosberg Driver Education Safety Act.” Last year, the Legislature changed the statute to require that 30% of the funds be used to provide behind-the-wheel training. He explained that, in order to make it clear to recipients of our funds, this small change in the Lake County Code indicates that whoever gets this money must comply with those requirements in the statute. The Lake County Department of Community Services administers these funds.
On a motion by Commr. Pool, seconded by Commr. Stivender and carried unanimously, by a vote of 4-0, the Board approved the request to advertise an ordinance amending Section 9-15, Lake County Code, entitled “Collection of Additional Costs in Civil Traffic Penalty Cases,” in order to reflect that all programs applying for traffic education funding under the section must comply with statutory requirements.

Mr. Minkoff presented the request by the City of Groveland to annex three County-owned parcels (Alt Keys 1007941, 1009413 and 1384028) into the City of Groveland. Staff recommends approval of the request which will eliminate enclaves from being created.
A motion was made by Commr. Stivender and seconded by Commr. Pool for approval of the request by the City of Groveland to annex three County-owned parcels (Alt Keys 1007941, 1009413 and 1384028) into the City of Groveland.
Mr. Minkoff explained that, on occasion, the cities ask the County to approve annexations, usually for a road right-of-way.
The Chairman called for a vote on the motion which carried unanimously, by a 4-0 vote.
AMENDMENT TO AGREEMENT WITH KENNETH COHRN, D.D.S.
Mr. Minkoff presented the recommendation of the five-county Medical Examiner Board for approval of an Amendment to Agreement between Lake County Board of County Commissioners and Kenneth Cohrn, D.D.S. for Forensic Odontology Professional Services for the Lake County Medical Examiner. The change in the contract increases Dr. Cohrn’s monthly rate from $250.00 to $600.00.
In response to Commr. Stivender’s question regarding the large jump, Mr. Minkoff explained that this covers the five-county area and the number of deaths and amount of work has increased.
Commr. Hill noted that, in reading the District 5 Medical Examiner Committee meeting minutes, Dr. Cohrn is underpaid if he were to be paid on a case-by-case basis.
Mr. Minkoff remarked that Dr. Cohrn, who has a dental practice, mainly does this work because it is of interest to him.
On a motion by Commr. Stivender, seconded by Commr. Hill, and carried unanimously, by a vote of 4-0, the Board approved an Amendment to Agreement between Lake County Board of County Commissioners and Kenneth Cohrn, D.D.S. for Forensic Odontology Professional Services for the Lake County Medical Examiner.

Commr. Stivender advised that she can report on that next week after the Historical Society meets. She stated that the photographs have been put together.
Commr. Hill noted that the project was begun a few years ago by the judiciary and the Lake County Bar Association. The plan is to hang the photos, of elected officials, in the Judicial Center.

Mr. Gregg Welstead, Deputy County Manager, advised that there may be some environmental concerns because of the wetlands/marshland location. He suggested that the County might be able to make some money on the trees.

Commr. Hanson noted that the City of Leesburg will host this year’s Earth Day event (April 22, 2006) and has asked for participation by Lake County. Mr. Greg Mihalic, Economic Development & Tourism Director, has agreed to coordinate that participation.
CITIZEN QUESTION AND COMMENT PERIOD
Ms. Linda Wrenn
Ms. Linda Wrenn requested a Lake County Commission resolution in support of Senate Bill 552 and House Bill 423 (Building Code Enforcement Officials; provides that said officials' bill of rights does not apply when official is subject of disciplinary proceedings for actions occurring outside scope of employment; provides that assisting any person in violating building code is grounds for discipline; provides that violations of said codes by contractors need not be willful; provides that local jurisdictions may issue civil citations, etc.). She explained that this will assist local municipalities when they have to prove willfulness on the part of building code enforcement officials. She stated that currently those officials are statutorily protected, exercise police powers and they can only be disciplined by DBPR (Department of Business and Professional Regulation). She stated that she is seeking a change only when the building code enforcement official does something outside of working for a municipal government and are on their own time for their own profit and gain and they violate the very thing they are enforcing. She cited a recent Lake County case in which she was involved as an example. She noted that the changes are being opposed by the Building Officials Association of Florida (BOAF). She stated that the City of Leesburg and the City of Mount Dora have passed unanimous resolutions of support for the changes and she repeated her request for a resolution of support from the Lake County Commission.
Regarding disciplinary action, Ms. Wrenn explained that the change would provide state and local boards, their investigators and their attorneys with language and tools they currently do not have. The county could find them in violation and send findings to the state. She remarked that the bill of rights is about six years old and has never been challenged and her case exposed some cracks in the system.
Mr. Minkoff confirmed that these are relatively minor changes. Staff will contact FAC (Florida Association of Counties) to see if they have taken a position on this issue, will look more deeply into the proposed legislation and bring a recommendation to the Board next week.
Ms. Wrenn concluded that these bills are consumer protection legislation and are being supported by AARP in Tallahassee. House Bill 423 may go before the House of Representatives’ Business Regulation Committee next Tuesday.
Mr. Roy Hunter
Mr. Roy Hunter, Northeast Lake Chamber of Commerce, expressed thanks for resurfacing on CR 439 and the new working traffic light at CR 44-A and CR 439. He repeated his past suggestions that citizens buy extra food, batteries, water and prescriptions to prepare for disasters.
Mr. Travis Whigham
Mr. Travis Whigham, Forest Hills Association, asked the Board to consider implementing a $2.00/day car rental tax for visitors only, excluding local residents who have to rent cars. Regarding newspaper articles concerning School Board Superintendent Anna Cowin’s proposal to condemn low-income housing in Leesburg to make way for a language school, Mr. Whigham asked the Board, in conjunction with the School Board, to try to find property to help those displaced residents if condemnation occurs. He reminded the Board that he has been invited to attend the VOTRAN (Volusia County’s Public Transit System) meeting in Daytona regarding public transportation for northeast Lake County. The meeting will be held March 8, 2006, at 10:30 a.m., at 1190 Pelican Bay Drive, Daytona, Florida. He stated that the Chairman of the Volusia County Board of County Commissioners will attend the meeting and he invited the Lake County Board, staff and citizens to attend the meeting.
Commr. Stivender will ask Ken Harley, Public Transportation Manager; T.J. Fish, Executive Director, Lake-Sumter MPO; or David Hope, MV Transportation, to attend the VOTRAN meeting.
REPORTS - COMMISSIONER HANSON - CHAIRMAN & DISTRICT #4 (CONTINUED)
Commr. Hanson announced that a much-needed traffic light will be installed within the week at Round Lake Road and SR 46.
REPORTS - COMMISSIONER STIVENDER - DISTRICT #3 (CONTINUED)
Commr. Stivender stated that she has been e-mailing Ms. Hall and Mr. Stivender about Shirley Shores Road. She has had numerous phone calls from residents concerning speeding on the “drag strip” from CR 448 to the first curve by the horse farm. While the speed limit is 45 mph, people probably are doing 60 mph, and numerous tickets from Sheriff’s Deputies have not stopped the speeding. She stated that she has asked staff to look at alternatives for the road because the high speeds are very dangerous.
There being no further business to be brought to the attention of the Board, the meeting was adjourned at 10:15 a.m.
