Mr. Dennis announced that the meeting would begin with the monthly update on the Loblolly Wetlands Mitigation Bank by the administration, a quarterly budget update from the Council Auditor, and a report from the Employee Services Department on the City’s tuition reimbursement program. Mr. Dennis reviewed the Auditor’s marked agenda which included 17 items marked for deferral, 14 items ready for action (1 as a substitute) and 17 items for second reading and re-referral. He noted that 2017-20 (offering City employees an option to enroll in a UF Health Jacksonville health care plan) is marked incorrectly on the agenda – the bill is not proposed to be substituted.
