Upcoming City Council Meeting Tuesday, May 19, 2020
This meeting will be held in the Community Building, shown on Facebook Live and live-streamed on the City of Mount Dora homepage. Public is welcome to attend, plenty of room for social distancing.
We begin at 5:30pm with a presentation from the Mount Dora Chamber of Commerce
There are two items on the Consent Agenda:
1. Approval of Meeting Minutes
-May 5, 2020 Regular City Council
2. Resolution 2020-68, Temporary Execution of Employee Vacation Accrual Cap. The City Manager has decided to extend the time period allowed, for all employees, to use vacation time. Employees max out at 240 hours and typically have to use their hours by the end of the fiscal year (September 30) or they lose the unused hours. Due to Covid-19 the City Manager has decided to allow employees an extra 120 days to use their accrued vacation time. Hopefully by then, it will be safer to travel without fear of getting sick.
We have three Resolutions:
1. Resolution 2020-48, Approval of Mid-Florida Materials (Hubbard) Annexation Agreement. Hubbard is the owner of approximately 180 acres of land south of SR 46 between Hwy 441 and Round Lake Road (see map). Hubbard wishes to voluntarily annex into the City Limits. Hubbard is using the majority of this site as a Construction and Demolition (C&D) landfill. A C&D landfill is only permitted for construction and demolition debris. This property's southern boundary is adjacent to Robie Ave as well as Sullivan Ranch subdivision.
2. Resolution 2020-78, Approval of mid-Year Budget Amendments for Fiscal Year 2019-20. Non-essential projects are being scaled back, or delayed entirely, due to Covid-19. Due to the lack of tourism, retail shopping and travel, the City will certainly see a cut in the amount of revenue we receive from the state. These amendments will cut $344K from the 2019-20 budget. Future adjustments will be made once we learn the actual dollar amounts the City will receive (late June/early July).
3. Resolution 2020-80, Change order 1 to Task Authorization 1, Authorizing Flo Power LLC to perform load tap changer repair on Power Transformer T1. It has been determined that the load tap changer needs to be replaced in order to continue full service operation of this transformer (T1). The replacement adds $23,798 to the cost of the project. City Council is asked to approve this increase in expense for the project.
We have one Ordinance:
1. Final Reading of Ordinance 2020-08, Annexation 0.93 Acre Wekiva Ridge, LLC. This Ordinance is to correct an error made in the original annexation of this property. The legal description does not currently include this 0.93 acre parcel. This Ordinance will annex the 0.93 acre parcel which is required under the Wekiva Ridge Preliminary Plat Resolution.
City Manager Discussion:
1. Construction Projects Update
2. Trails/BUILD Grant Update
3. Fire Station Update
