Recap of February 4th City Council Meeting
Updated: Feb 16
We began at 5:30pm in City Hall with two presentations.
1. Resolution 2020-25, Recognition of Former Mayor Nick Girone
2. Resolution 2020-26, Recognition of Former Councilmember Laurie Tillett
The Consent Agenda had just one item. This passed 6-0 (Mr. Crail was absent)
1. Approval of Meeting Minutes
- January 17, 2020, City Council Retreat (Strategic Planning Session)
- January 21, 2020, Regular Meeting
We had six Resolutions for vote:
1. Resolution 2019-193, Purchase of Vehicles from Alan Jay Fleet Sales and Bozard Ford Fleet Sales, Inc. under the Florida Sheriff's Association Cooperative Purchasing Program. This passed 5-1. Mr. Tucker voted no. The City is phasing out some of our leased vehicles over the next couple of years.
2. Resolution 2020-10, Fiber Optic Upgrades. This passed 6-0
3. Resolution 2020-11, Change Order #2 for Commercial Industrial Corporation. This passed 6-0. Our Utilities Director gave some additional information regarding this change order. This project was first engineered five years ago, before AdventHealth was built. Three years ago plans were developed in more detail but still AdventHealth was not yet built. When the City submitted plans for the portion of the project that is now AdventHealth the State took 7 months to issue the permit. Due to the delay in permitting, the construction of AdventHealth got ahead of our project causing a change order for the project.
4. Resolution 2020-17, Approval of Agreement with Architects Design Group for architectural services for the new Public Works Facility. This passed 6-0
5. Resolution 2020-18, Authorization to negotiate for Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) Services for Public Works Facility. This passed 6-0
6. Resolution 2020-19, Approval for 6th Avenue Drainage System Agreement. This passed 6-0
We had one Appeal:
1. Appeal (de novo), to the City Council stemming from the DENIAL of a variance application pertaining to the property located at 844 North Grandview Street, issued by the Planning and Zoning Commission on November 20, 2019. City Council denied the Appeal by a vote of 6-0. This variance will not be granted.
We have two Discussion Items:
1. Establishing Special Dates for Annual Recognition. Through some discussion City Staff is being asked to research what other small cities do in regards to recognizing people that have contributed to our City.
2. Community-wide Clean-up Days. Staff will provide recommendations at a future meeting as to what potential volunteer type organizations (churches, Kiwanis, etc.) would want to be involved in Community-wide Clean Up Days throughout the year. This notion is limited to trash pick up. This conversation was not to include such projects as house painting, small home repairs, etc. More information will be provided at a future date.
