Up Next - Feb 5th Regular Meeting



Two presentations to begin the 6:00pm meeting. First, a proclamation commending Joe Lewis for his contribution to holiday decorations in Mount Dora. Second is a swearing in ceremony for the Honorary Canine Mayor and Vice-Mayor. đŸ¶


There are six Resolutions to vote on Tuesday evening:


Resolution 2019-01 to award the contract for utility line relocation on Hwy 441 from Lincoln Ave. to Donnelly to Commercial Industrial Corporation. ($7+ million project will begin in May 2019 and is projected to finish in June 2021)


Resolution 2019-07 to approve a State Revolving Fund (SRF) Loan for $1.8 million to fund the Drinking Water portion of the Hwy 441 utility relocation project. Some additional information on SRF loans: Florida's State Revolving Fund (SRF) is made up of three programs - Clean Water State Revolving Fund, Drinking Water State Revolving Fund and State Revolving Fund Management. Both the Clean Water and the Drinking Water SRF Programs are funded through money received from federal grants as well as state contributions. These funds then "revolve" through the repayment of previous loans and interest earned. While these programs offer loans, grant-like funding is also available for qualified small, disadvantaged communities, which reduces the amount owed on loans by the percentage that the community qualifies.


Resolution 2019-08 to approve a SRF Loan for $4 million to fund the Clean Water portion of the Hwy 441 utility relocation project.


Resolution 2019-14 to approve a Minor Subdivision and Duplex Division to subdivide a platted parcel. This property is the southwest corner of Grandview St and Jackson Ave. The owner wishes to subdivide this parcel into three lots: a Single Family residence and the current Duplex would be split into two separate lots.


Resolution 2019-10 to award the contract for construction of the Apopka Reclaim Transmission Interconnect Project to Randall Environmental. ($2.7 million project)


Resolution 2018-208 is a request for City Council to grant funding in the amount of $10,000 to the Mount Dora Chamber of Commerce
