From:                          Paul Kalv, Electric Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution applying for and accepting Grant Funding from WorkForce Central Florida, Inc.

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval to apply for and accept grant funding, if our application is approved, from WorkForce Central Florida, Inc., for  $2,262.59 for fifty percent of the tuition expense for four electrical workers enrolled in the Apprentice Lineman Educational Program.

 

Analysis:

In the past, the City has fully funded the educational expenses for electrical workers enrolled in the Apprentice Lineman Program administered by the Lake Sumter Community College. This will be the second year the City has applied for grant funding.

 

 

Options:

1.  Approval to apply for and accept funding, if approved, from WorkForce Central Florida, Inc. 

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
