AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           March 10, 2008

 

From:                          Raymond S. Sharp, Director, Environmental Services/Public Works

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing the First Amendment to an Agreement with  St. Johns River Water Management District

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the first amendment to the agreement with St Johns River Water Management District.

 

Analysis:

On April 11, 2006, the District and the City entered into an agreement for WPSP Project funding by the District for the City’s reuse projects.  The funding was provided over a three year period.  The City’s  use of the funding for the last year was delayed, pending the 2007 bond issue, the major portion of which was dedicated to reuse projects.  At the City’s request, the District has extended the contract though September 30, 2009 to allow use of grant funds for completion of these reuse projects.  The total amount of funding that we will be able to use under this extension is approximately $1.2 million, or about 20% of our actual costs.

 

The contract extension also adds a paragraph relating to auditing, to make the Agreement consistent with current Agreements for State funding.

 

Options:

1.  Authorize   the Amendment as presented, or;

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The fiscal impact is entirely positive, in that the funds made available to the City by this amendment will provide for approximately 20% of the costs of reuse project construction.
