AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           July 25, 2011

 

From:                          Lucy Gangone, Library Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing approval of the Interlocal Agreement with Lake County relating to provision of Library Services

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing approval of the Interlocal Agreement with the County for the provision of Library Services.

 

Analysis:

The Leesburg Public Library is a member of the Lake County Library System through an Interlocal Agreement.  The current Agreement for October 1, 2007 thru September 30, 2010 was extended for a one year period through September 30, 2011.  The proposed Agreement is for the period October 1, 2011 thru September 30, 2013. There are few changes in the new Agreement, with the exception of Section 13, which details the formula that will be used for distributing county funds to the member libraries.  The changes to the formula are designed to ensure a base of financial support for each member library, while also compensating the higher circulating libraries for their activity.   

 

Options:

1.  Approve the resolution authorizing the execution of the Interlocal Agreement with  Lake County for the provision of Library Services, or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Funding from the County to the City for Library Services is projected to decrease from $314,420 received in FY 2010 – 2011 to $307,792 in FY 2011 – 2012, a 2.1% decrease, or $6,628.  Our base amount is reduced from $25,000 to $15,000, a $10,000 reduction (as it is for each member library), while the amount based upon circulation increases by $3,372, resulting in a net decrease of $6,628.
