County Manager position discussed at workshop

The board recognized Norton on her upcoming retirement after 21 years of service.

County Engineer Cliff Knauer informed the board that they were ready to send out bids for the mowing, which is a part of the additional Sunny Hills services.

After much discussion the board decided that the contract to bid out should be under the guidelines of pay per cycle with a minimum of 10 cycles guaranteed for the main roads and twice a year for the alternate side roads and would include descriptions for trash pickup and weed-eating services.

The current figures, Knauer explained, were based on the current mowing services and the description was based on current Florida Department of Transportation standards.

Goodman informed them that he had created a new draft ordinance for the MSBU, which was similar to the one in 2011 but excluded the MSBU Advisory Board.

“We’ve created budgeting guidelines to replace the necessity of the advisory board and to be completely transparent with the community and agrees to add addition services,” explained Goodman. “The annual assessment of money is to go to toward repaying their debt, mowing and additional lighting. After these expenses are taken out we’ve got a contingency of three to five percent that will be used for the next year’s services and after all those provisions are made then any addition money will go toward paying off their debt.”

Supervisor of Public Works Dallas Carter received permission to get rid of the old Sunny Hills Municipal Service Benefit Unit equipment by calling a scrap company to come pick it up and putting the money back into MSBU funds.
