DEFER UNTIL SPECIAL FINANCE COMMITTEE MEETING

 

The committee engaged in considerable discussion about the purpose and parameters of the new mechanism for use of the convention development tax funds and posed numerous questions about the draft agreement to General Counsel Cindy Laquidara, Council Auditor Kirk Sherman and Assistant Auditor Janice Billy, and Jacksonville Jaguars attorney Paul Harden.  The role of the City Council in approving changes in the timing of projects in the CIP was discussed, as well as the advisability of setting formal criteria for distributing the convention development tax funds among the various SMG-managed facilities.  Ms. Laquidara raised a separate Jaguars-related issue that needs resolution having to do with a desire  on the parts of the universities of Florida and Georgia to change pricing policy for stadium suite tickets, which is now controlled by the Jaguars.

 

Chairman Davis announced that a special meeting would be scheduled on August 6th or 9th to work through the proposal and finalize a recommendation for the Council meeting on August 10th.

DEFER UNTIL SPECIAL FINANCE COMMITTEE MEETING

 

Chairman Davis announced that a special meeting would be scheduled on August 6th or 9th to work through the proposal and finalize a recommendation for the Council meeting on August 10th.

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the conclusion of the agenda the committee took public comments from two speakers regarding the Recreation and Community Development Department’s announced intention to issue an RFP for a contractor to operate the City’s tennis centers.  B. J. Laster questioned why the Mayor’s proposed budget for FY10-11 includes $180,000 in cost savings based on hiring a private operator when the RFP has not even been promulgated yet and any potential cost savings are as yet unknown. Thelma Young of Southside Tennis opposed the privatization of operations because of the potential for cost increases to the citizens who use the facilities and a reduction in affordable availability.
