  • The Chairman announced that, despite having been deferred in earlier committees, he intended to take up 2010-435 (extension of contract with Visit Jacksonville, Inc.) and 2010-440 (appropriation of $7,762,362 energy efficiency grant).
  • 2010-353 will have a floor amendment to limit the amount of trust funds that can be expended via self-appropriation.
  • Nathan Rezeau of the Recreation and Community Services Department gave a brief explanation of 2010-455 which will place use restriction covenants on two parcels of City property adjacent to Whitehouse Field and will donate the “in-kind” value of the development rights to the U.S. Navy to use as a match toward further property fee simple or development rights acquisitions.
  • Ordinance 2010-553 (TRIM notice and proposed millage rate), introduced for first reading at the  recent special council meeting, will be taken up in order to be acted upon by the Council at next week’s meeting to meet the state’s advertising deadline.
  • At the conclusion of the meeting Mickey Miller will give the mandatory quarterly investment portfolio update.
