Some updates that came from our City Manager:

17 households qualified for the Fire Assessment Fee Hardship Program. The expense to the City for these Hardship Fees is just over $2,800

Lights will be installed in the parking lot at 3rd & Baker by the end of this month. The parking lot will be closed from May through July to repair the grass in the lot. There is a potential for additional cost during these repairs. The engineer has suggested the City consider laying rock in the "travel" area that circles the inside of the lot. City Staff will present pricing for the rock at our meeting on March 17, 2020.

Lastly, the Mount Dora Golf Association will experience some demolition this month. The dilapidated building next to the tennis courts will be demolished. At the same time, the tennis courts will be torn up and removed along with the fencing and lighting in that area. Nothing about the golf course or the clubhouse will be a part of this demolition.
