We have six resolutions for vote:

  1. Resolution 2020-91 Approval of Agreement with Explosive Touch Enterprises, LLC. This agreement is for Annual Fireworks Services at a total cost of $30,000. The agreement includes fireworks for Freedom on the Waterfront and for New Year's Eve. The agreement allows for flexibility in the dates due to Covid-19.

  2. Resolution 2020-95 Approval of 2020 fireworks display and dock closure. Staff will present this Resolution to Council regarding fireworks to be held on July 3rd. To be clear though, City Staff is NOT recommending that Council approve this Resolution. Based on Covid-19 Staff recommends the fireworks display be postponed to a future date.

  3. Resolution 2020-49 Approval of the Agreement with Parkson Corporation for the Rebuild/Retrofit of the Bar Screen at Wastewater Treatment Plant #2. The mechanical bar screen that filters out all debris from entering the rest of the plant's system is in need of repair. This project was not budgeted for in year 2019-20. The cost to repair is $45,135

  4. Resolution 2020-85 Approval of the Fire Services Special Assessment. This resolution sets the maximum Fire Assessment Fee amount to be imposed in Fiscal Year 2020-21. The current year's Fire Assessment Fee is $219 for residential properties and commercial properties pay by the square foot.

  5. Resolution 2020-89 Approval to Piggyback Kissimmee Utility Authority Contract "HVAC Maintenance Services Re-Bid". Our Public Works Department does routine maintenance on the City's air conditioning systems however, at times, repairs require licensed and trained technicians for larger, more expensive repairs. City Council is asked to approve this Piggyback agreement for HVAC services as needed.

  6. Resolution 2020-87 Authorization for a Wi-Fi Project to service the Historic Downtown District. This will allow for public wi-fi, connection of public safety equipment, cameras, smart lighting controllers and more. This project will cost approximately $506,012

We have one ordinance:

  1. Final Reading of Ordinance 2020-04 Comprehensive Plan EAR-Based Amendments (Adoption Hearing). The Comprehensive Plan guides future development, maintains quality of life and provides for economic development. It also regulates land use and provides the basis for Land Development Regulations. This plan stretches to 2045. This is the final look at this plan before its adoption.

We will adjourn as City Council and reconvene as the Northeast Community Redevelopment Agency Board. There is one item on the agenda.

Resolution 2020-88 (Northeast CRA) Northeast Community Redevelopment Plan of 2020. The Redevelopment Plan of 2020 has been modified to include three additional parcels into the Northeast CRA Boundary. They are the recently annexed parcel at Bristol Lakes Apartments and the City properties on Limit Ave that will be home to our new fire station and Public Works facility. The update to this plan also includes the addition of Disaster assistance programs. These are the only changes since the 2018 plan.

Thank you for your attention. If you have any questions/concerns regarding this agenda please reach out anytime.
