Upcoming Regular City Council Meeting - Tuesday, March 3, 2020

We begin at 5:30pm in City Hall

We'll have two presentations:

1. Purple Heart City Plaque Presentation

2. Ocala Mountain Bike Association Celebrates the Tenth Anniversary of the Mount Dora Trail

We have four items on the Consent Agenda:

1. Resolution 2020-15, Approval of Piggyback Agreement with Guardian Equipment, Inc. City Council is asked to approve a contract for chemical feed system maintenance, repair and equipment services under a piggyback agreement with Volusia County. Our previous contract has expired. This is an as-needed service contract so a dollar specific dollar amount is impossible to provide. However, monies are budgeted for repair and maintenance of the chemical feed equipment.

2. Resolution 2020-16, Lakes of Mount Dora Streetsweeping Agreement. Similar to the previous two Streetsweeping Agreements (Loch Leven and Waterman Village), the City wishes to enter into an agreement with the Lakes of Mount Dora to sweep the privately owned streets in the Lakes of Mount Dora. There is no budget impact for this Resolution since the residents of the Lakes of Mount Dora are assessed stormwater fees to help maintain the stormwater system.

3. Interlocal Agreement with Lake County Sheriff's Office and the Police Departments for the Cities of Mount Dora, Leesburg, Groveland and Eustis. This agreement will require the Mount Dora Police Department to dedicate a channel of our police radios to the Lake County Sheriff's Office for the purpose of faster response/dispatch time of 911 emergencies. This agreement is a result of Florida Statute 365.179
