Item No: 4.C.5.
Meeting Date: July 22, 2013
From: Lucy Gangone, Library Director
Subject: Resolution of the City Commission of Leesburg, FL authorizing approval of the Interlocal Agreement between Lake County and City of Leesburg relating to provision of Library Services.
Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing approval of the Interlocal Agreement with Lake County for the provision of Library Services.
The Leesburg Public Library is a member of the Lake County Library System through an Interlocal Agreement. The current Agreement expires September 30, 2013. The proposed Agreement is for the period October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2016. There are few changes between this Agreement and the current Agreement. The funding formula will remain the same. Other changes were made to reflect minor changes made to the State Aid to Public Libraries Grant Guidelines; elimination of the Interlibrary Loan program, for borrowing books from outside Lake County; and discontinued reciprocal borrowing with Polk County and Orange County.
1. Approve the resolution authorizing the execution of the Interlocal Agreement between the County and the City for the provision of Library Services, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funding from the County to the City for Library Services is projected to decrease from $292,072 received in FY 2012 – 2103 to $285,544 in FY 2013 – 2014, a 2.2% decrease, or $6,528.
