Staff recommends approval of the agreement with Lake County Water Authority.
This agreement will secure Lake County Water Authority grant funding in an amount not to exceed $45,490.00 in matching funds for the restoration portion of the Lake Lucerne Stormwater Project. The funding will support the removal of sediment and invasive vegetation from the lake. The City of Leesburg already has Lake County Water Authority grant funding in place for the Lake Lucerne sediment box project of $50,815.00.
1. Approve the agreement with Lake County Water Authority; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Approval of this grant will result in additional revenue of $45,490.00 which was not included in the 08-09 budget. Therefore, a budget adjustment will be necessary for this agreement.
