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.
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.
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.
The City intends to send four apprentice linemen to the training program at a total cost of $4,525.18, which is included in the current budget. If awarded, the grant will pay 50% of the total cost of the training ($2,262.59).
