Recap of June 16, 2020 City Council Meeting and Northeast CRA Meeting
We began at 5:30pm in the Community Building. We had two presentations:
Certificates of Appreciation for Facility Care Staff - Our Facility Care Staff has a combined 98 years of service to the City of Mount Dora. WOW! Thank you so much for all that you do everyday and particularly for your extra efforts during this pandemic.
Lake Franklin Presentation - The history of this Lake isn't exactly clear because good records weren't kept, but it is believed this Lake was born of a borrow pit for orange groves that were in this location long before most of us. The question was raised by some residents on the Lake regarding ownership and who is responsible for cleaning/treating the lake. Residents were encouraged to reach out to our Public Works Manager Robert Harper to get questions answered.
