Staff recommends approval of the agreement to allow the library to serve as a point-of-sale, within the City of Leesburg, for citizens to purchase the passes required to ride on the Lake Xpress buses.
Lake County Department of Community Services, Public Transportation Division has requested libraries within Lake County serve as site where citizens are able to purchase a Fixed Route Transportation Pass from the municipality. At this time, the bus does stop in front of the Library to pick up and drop off passengers on its route down Main St and through the City of Leesburg. It would be a convenient place for citizens to purchase their pass and take advantage of the public transportation service.
The agreement states that the County will provide a cash box containing a variety of the passes at different levels and $30.00 to serve as change. There will be no credit card or check purchases made; all transactions will be cash only.
The Library will be required to keep a record of purchases on a form provided by the County and will have to make monthly reports of those purchases at the time the money is deposited with the County. The County will replenish the passes on request or at the time of deposit.
1. Agree to sale of bus passes at the Library
2. Choose another site for the sale of passes.
3. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
There will be no need for additional funding but there will be staff time involved in the transaction and the reporting. No costs for supplies or equipment will be incurred.
