This booklet has been prepared for the convenience of the Board of County Commissioners in discussing matters before them. Every effort has been made to include all items to be discussed at this Board of County Commissioners meeting, however, Commissioners may add items, which are not a part of this Agenda, or items may be removed from consideration. While it has been the goal to present error-free information, we do not represent that documentation is without errors or omissions.

In addition to regular Board meetings, the Board of County Commissioners may, from time to time, schedule a workshop during which they will receive information from staff, have discussions with staff and among themselves, and then proceed to give staff direction on the subject matter being discussed unless otherwise shown on the Agenda item. These discussions and workshops do not take the place of the formal public hearing process during which any member of the public may comment and formal action is taken.

The Board and staff welcome written comments prior to workshops and other meetings. If you have comments or questions regarding the subject matter of any Board action or workshop, please deliver your written comments to appropriate County staff or mail to the Board of County Commissioners, Post Office Box 7800, Tavares, FL 32778.

  Tab 3 Approve Budget Change Request and Unanticipated Revenue Resolution.
  1. Budget transfer - General Fund, Department of Facilities Development and Management, Facilities Management Division.  Transfer $33,745 from various operating and capital outlay accounts to Machinery and Equipment.  Funds are requested to purchase a towable trailer-mounted articulated 42-foot boom lift for use in performing preventive and ongoing maintenance programs.  The boom lift will allow staff to perform functions that currently require the use of rental equipment or external contractors.  Savings for Fiscal Year 2009 are projected at $14,640.  Savings for future fiscal years are expected to be the same, resulting in a payback period for 2.4 years based on today's dollars, excluding fuel, maintenance and insurance.  Also excluded from the payback calculation are the potential savings from the in-house maintenance of parking area lighting and other maintenance items that may be added to the responsibility of in-house staff vs. outside vendors when a savings to the County could be realized.  The life expectancy of the boom lift is 10 years.  Funds are available due to savings in various operating and capital outlay accounts.
    2. Resolution to amend the County Library System Fund in order to receive unanticipated revenue for Fiscal Year 2008 in the amount of $1,000 deposited into Other Miscellaneous Revenues and provide appropriations for the purpose of purchasing adult literacy learning materials for tutors and students at the Cagan Crossings Community Library, as part of the Family Literacy Program.
