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.

Budget transfer - County Library System Fund, Department of Community Services, Library Services Division.  Transfer $15,160 from Special Reserve to Rentals and Leases.  The transfer is needed to cover the increase in the building lease cost for the month-to-month extension beginning June 1, 2009 on the leased property in Clermont used for the Cooper Memorial Library.  The library will be moving to the new facility in August.  Funds were budgeted in the Rentals and Leases account to accommodate a 5% increase in the lease cost for a one year extension.  When the County exercised the option to renew for a month-to-month term, the monthly rent increased from $4,961 to $9,000, an 81% increase.  This transfer will leave $37,644 remaining in the Special Reserve account.
