Staff recommends that a staff member, citizen, or City Commissioner be appointed to this position.
The Lake County Board of County Commissioners has reorganized the membership and duties of the committee that makes decisions regarding cultural and arts activities within Lake County. At their May 15, 2007, meeting the “Lake County Arts and Cultural Alliance” was created to serve this purpose, replacing the Lake County Cultural Affairs Council.
The new Alliance will consist of seven (7) members including one each from Leesburg, Clermont, Eustis, Minneola, Mount Dora and Tavares; and one (1) rotating member to represent Astatula, Fruitland Park, Groveland, Howey-in-the-Hills, Lady Lake, Mascotte, Montverde, and Umatilla.
Each of the six permanent members will be appointed for a term of two (2) years. However, the initial term of the representatives from Clermont, Leesburg, and Minneola will expire on July 1, 2008. The term of the rotating member will be one (1) year.
The City Commission must select the member who will represent Leesburg on this Alliance. The Board of County Commissioners will then appoint the members as recommended by the municipality. Greg Mihalic of Lake County has advised that the Commission may appoint any individual who they feel will best represent the City’s interests in this endeavor, which can be a staff member, City Commissioner, or citizen.
1. Appoint the City of Leesburg’s representative to the Lake County Arts and Cultural Alliance
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
There is no fiscal impact to the City of Leesburg as a result of this action.
