Other than the zoning and road vacation public hearings, the Board will not receive comment from the public on matters not pertaining to the issues before them.




Regular meetings of the Lake County Board of County Commissioners are held on the first, third and fourth Tuesdays of each month (starting at 9 a.m.) in the Board Chambers of the Lake County Administration Building, located at 315 W. Main Street, Tavares.

Board workshops, if needed, are held on the second Tuesday of each month and could be located at various venues throughout the County. To view workshop meeting locations, or for more information on upcoming meetings, visit, or call (352) 343-9888.


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.
