Assistant Council Auditor Janice Billy reviewed the Auditor’s marked agenda, which showed 1 item to be withdrawn, 7 items to be deferred, 25 items ready for action and 14 items to be read a second time and re-referred.
Council Member Davis will be
present to discuss Ordinances 2010-39 and -40 (fair share assessment agreements
with Harmony Farms of Jacksonville and Olsen Farms LLC, respectively) for
construction of Parramore road near the intersection of I-295 and
Ms. Sidman announced that amendments will be offered to all of the ordinances appropriating fair share dollars to Better Jacksonville Plan road projects (2010-75 through 2010-91) to remove the CIP page attachments; some of the bills also have other amendments. Ms. Billy explained how the removal of the CIP amendments will keep all of the project total budget allocations the same, but will substitute fair share sector funds for BJP funds to overcome funding shortfalls. If and when BJP funds are collected in excess of the budgets for each of the projects, future legislation will be needed to shift that excess funding to other BJP uses.
