GRANT APPLICATION REQUESTING $15,301 FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR/
MANPOWER ADMINISTRATION TO FUND WEST COAST REGIONAL WATER SUPPLY
AUTHORITY'S TITLE VI EMERGENCY JOBS PROGRAM APPROVED FOR EXECUTION

Mr. Hesse stated that, some time ago, the Vice Chairman

requested him to research the possibility of utilizing the Manpower

and Criminal Justice Planning Units for additional personnel; that

he has explored the feasibility of such a program with Mr. Lachman,

Coordinator of this program for Pinellas County, and advised that the

necessary documents have been prepared for his signature upon the

approval of the Board. He added that he plans to employ one engineer

and one clerk typist, utilizing Federally appropriated funds at a

maximum of $10,000 a year per individual.

Senator de la Parte interjected that he has reviewed the

program with Mr. Lachman and doesn't find any problems with the

implementation of same.

Mr. Twachtmann moved, seconded by Mr. Wedding and carried,

that the General Manager be authorized to execute a grant application

requesting $15,301 from the Department of Labor/Manpower Administration

to fund the Authority's Title VI Emergency Jobs Program.

Vice-Chairman Curry expressed the opinion that the slide

presentation project could be achieved by in-house staff and

suggested that the request be deferred. In response, Mr. Hesse replied

that he is concerned about the quality of the project, noting that he

is not a professional in this field.

Following discussion, Mr. Wedding moved, seconded by-

Commissioner Law and carried, that the matter be deferred.


RESOLUTION ADOPTED RELATING TO FEDERAL OLD AGE AND SURVIVORS INSURANCE;
RESOLUTION ADOPTED RELATING TO MEMBERSHIP IN THE FLORIDA RETIREMENT SYSTEM

Mr. Hesse recommended that the Authority staff be made a

part of the Florida Retirement System. He stated that the Florida

Retirement System is participated in by most Florida counties as well

as SWFWMD; that both TBART and TBRPC are considering entering the

system; that in order to join, the Authority is required to adopt a

resolution that pertains to social security; and that the required

documents have been examined by Counsel.

REPORT ON THE PROGRESS OF NEGOTIATIONS RE CYPRESS CREEK WELLFIELD AND
RELATED FACILITIES RECEIVED

Mr. Hesse presented the following report on the progress

of the negotiations re Cypress Creek Wellfield and related facilities

"and requested the Authority members to read same:

REPORT ON CYPRESS CREEK


We have held several meetings of key staff members to collect
and disseminate information and background and to identify
potential problem areas. One of the prime questions to be
answered in the Cypress Creek deliberations is the extent of
the project which should come under Authority control. That
is, should it include transmission.mains from Cypress Creek
and which mains should be included in the proposed acquisition.

The method of financing this undertaking has received consid-
erable deliberation and discussion. A lease-purchase arrange-
ment may pose the fewest number of problems. Senator de la Parte
"is researching constraints, options and methods.

It appears to be desirable to have the existing construction
contracts completed by the entities which now hold the contracts.
Pinellas County is training operational personnel capable of
operating the well field and associated facilities. Transfer
of these personnel on a voluntary basis would be a logical step
at the appropriate time.

The SWFWMD policy with respect to operation of the flood
detention areas may be a critical factor in the amount of water
available for withdrawal from the aquifer. SWFWMD will probably
retain a consultant satisfactory to us to investigate operational
policies which would be responsive to both flood control and
re-charge and still be consistent with possible environmental
constraints. The cost of the production of the Cypress Creek
plant will depend largely on the amount of water which may be
withdrawn. This has not been determined and will not be known
until pumping tests are complete sometime in 1976.

SWFWMID has not progessed very far on the procurement of real
estate in the retention area and land costs (for which the
Authority will be responsible for 50%) are still unknown. Over
$1,000,000 has been contributed by Pinellas, Pasco and-St.
Petersburg for real estate and the expectation is that $1,500,000
more will be needed in FY 76. The Authority will, of course, be
responsible for these costs.

Commissioner Curry expressed concern that "there seems to

be some attitude on St. Petersburg's part, at this time, and maybe

Pinellas County, that unless all entities involved within this Authority

are willing to give up their water supply, that they won't be", and

requested that this be addressed.

During discussion, Senatqr de la Parte highlighted the ideas/

attitudes that surfaced at a recent meeting with the various attorneys



140










and staff members as follows:

1. At the conclusion of the meeting, the assembly was
very close to formalizing an agreement.
2. Attempts were made to identify those areas in which
problems were anticipated very few areas were identified.
3. The finale of the transfer should appear by the 90-
day deadline.

He recommended that an extensive discussion of this matter

be deferred until such time as the Chairman of the Authority is present.

Mr. Talley concurred with the remarks of the Authority

attorney and advised that Pinellas County has not taken a position on

this matter, but is still negotiating at the staff level and exploring

methods of transferring.

Mr. Wedding stated that the position of St. Petersburg has

been and continues to be of a cooperative nature, however, there are

some difficulties, both legal and otherwise, that will have to be

resolved, i.e. bonding requirements. He reassured the Authority that

the City has not placed a condition on the transfer as outlined by

the Vice-Chairman.

Mr. Twachtmann interjected that, prior to this meeting, he

"heard" conversation from Mr. Duynslager of the City of St. Petersburg

relating a similar idea as projected by the Vice-Chairman. He

suggested that, "if that, indeed, is not the position of the City of

St. Petersburg, then perhaps the staff should not be voicing them".

In response, Mr. Wedding stated that the exploration by the staff of

various possibilities is its prerogative, however, he pointed out that

the final decision will be made in this body and "that's my chore and

I will continue to act as Council instructed me to do and that's not

a pre-condition at this time".

The Vice-Chairman indicated that the submitted report was

to be received and noted.
