final review process and will be ready for the printer before the December
Governing Board meeting. Mr. Allee said the printing and binding cost may be
above $5000 and in order to comply with the District Purchasing Policy, the
staff recommended the Board authorize the Executive Director to approve printing
the Ordinance and companion flyer at a cost above the $5000 limit, if necessary.
Following consideration, Mr. Zagorac moved, seconded by Mr. Lambert, to authorize
the Executive Director to approve printing and binding the Ordinance, as
recommended by the staff. Motion carried unanimously.
Procedures for Establishing Lake Levels
Mr. Blain stated the legal staff is considering revising the procedure relating
to the establishment of lake levels. He said the only suggested change at the
moment is on Lake Tarpon which is to have a series of workshops rather than a
workshop followed by a public hearing. Mr. Stubbs said he felt the Hearing
Officer approach is viable and should be utilized, and requested the staff
discuss these proposed changes with the Governing Board members who share his
concern prior to initiating any changes in procedure.
At approximately 12:05 p.m., the Chairman recessed the meeting to provide a
lunch break. He announced the Personnel Committee and Audit and Budget
Committee would meet during the break.
Following the lunch break, the meeting reconvened at approximately 12:40 p.m.
and proceeded with consideration of Item 4-E, Line of Credit/Loai; Item K(1),
Employee Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance; and Item K(2), Travel
Accident Insurance for Governing and Basin Board members, which were
deferred earlier in the meeting.
Line of Credit/Loan Lower Hillsborough and Tampa Bypass Canal Recreation
The Governing Board, at its October 6, 1982, meeting, expressed concern
regarding the Escrow Agreement for Recreation Development at Canal 135 and
Lower Hillsborough Flood Detention Area to guarantee funding on the project
to the Corps of Engineers and referred it to the Audit and Budget Committee
for further discussion. Mr. Kimbrough reported that following a discussion
regarding the Escrow Agreement and the District's 50% share of the total
cost of the project, the Committee recommended to the Board that the staff
prepare a Resolution, approved by the Board, wherein the District would
advise the Corps of Engineers that its money is ready and available after
the staff has inspected the work and it meets District approval, as opposed
to placing funds on deposit with the Corps as they requested. He said the
Committee further recommended that if the Corps does not accept the Resolution,
the District establish the line of credit as recommended by the staff with
Ellis Bank and Trust, Sarasota and establish an escrow account with payments
tc the Corps of Engineers as the work is completed and approved. Following
consideration, Mr. Updike moved to approve the Committee's recommendation and
authorized the Chairman or Executive Director to execute an appropriate
Resolution to assure the Corps of Engineers that the funds will be available
when needed. The motion was seconded by Mr. Kimbrough and carried unanimously.
Employee Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance
Ms. Kumpe advised that the Personnel Committee generally agreed to recommend
to the Governing Board, approval of twenty-four hour accidental death and
dismemberment program for District employees, with the premiums paid 100% by
