Options:

1.  Accept the Florida Department of Health grant, or;

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The total cost is $18,500. The Florida Department of Health will provide 75% of the cost totaling $13,875.00 and the City of Leesburg will contribute 25% totaling $4,625.00.  Funds are available in the FY 2011-2012 contingency budget for the city match.  A budget adjustment will be necessary to add the additional revenue and expense into the current budget.
