PEOPLE MOVER/JOINT PARTNERSHIP
Louis Rotundo, representing the City of Altamonte Springs, addressed the Board to introduce Frank Martz, staff member from the City of Altamonte Springs. He stated monies for the proposed North Orange/South Seminole People Mover project has been funded and set aside under the Intelligence Transportation System (ITS).
Frank Martz, City of Altamonte Springs Planning Manager, addressed the Board to advise the project was funded as part of the TEA-21 (Transportation Equity Act), and it is only one of three in the Country. He stated there are a number of arterial roads in the north Orange and south Seminole area that suffer traffic congestion and this study is an effort to identify those corridors and take advantage of some of the travel time during the morning, afternoon and lunch hours. He explained how the concept of the project would work. He stated the MetroPlan is asking that the local governments contribute $60,000 to the project. Thus far, the Cities of Altamonte Springs and Maitland have committed to $15,000. He said the City of Maitland is pursuing Orange County to contribute $15,000. He added he is requesting that Seminole County contribute $15,000 as well, and to identify a staff member to sit on a guidance and oversight committee with them.
Chairman Henley stated he spoke with Chairman Martinez several months ago and he has indicated that he saw no problem with Orange County participating in this program.
Commissioner Morris stated he feels it would be appropriate to review this issue during the Budget work sessions.
Upon inquiry by Chairman Henley, Mr. Martz advised he would need a letter from Seminole County within the next two weeks indicating that they are willing to participate.
Discussion ensued between Commissioner Maloy and Mr. Martz relative to the funding source, RFP process, hiring a consultant to do the study and how the money will be used.
Commissioner Van Der Weide stated he feels it is important that Mr. Martz coordinate this issue very closely with staff.
Chairman Henley stated he feels it would be appropriate to consider this issue during the Budget work sessions. No objections were voiced.
Commissioner Morris left the meeting at this time.
WATER & SEWER REVENUE BOND ISSUE STATUS
Cindy Hall, Fiscal Services Director, addressed the Board to state it was determined during April 1999 that perhaps the County would have an opportunity to gain savings by doing some cash defeasance of the 1992 Water and Sewer Bonds. She introduced members of the County’s bond counsel, John Stokes, Nabors & Giblin, and David Lee, Collins, Smith, Barney. She explained what would happen with the defeasance. She submitted and reviewed a chart showing how the money flows and what the savings would be.
Upon inquiry by Chairman Henley, Ms. Hall advised the interest rate for the 1992 bonds is at 6% and the new bonds will be at 5.2%.
Commissioner Morris reentered the meeting at this time.
John Stokes addressed the Board to discuss with Commissioner Maloy whether a portion of the connection fees could be used to pay the old debt, and if they could split the issue of defeasance from the new debt.
Upon inquiry by Commissioner Van Der Weide, Ms. Hall advised staff’s job is to determine what money is remaining in the system so they can add it to the $13 million and perhaps bump it up to $14 million.
Upon further inquiry by Commissioner Van Der Weide, Ms. Hall advised staff is anticipating coming back in two weeks with a bond resolution and they should have the final figures sometime today. The money can only be used for sewer expansion projects.
Mr. Stokes explained the reason why they focused on the connection fees.
Commissioner Morris stated he believes the request is to get some direction on the fees and staff will come back in two weeks with new numbers. He stated he feels staff should submit as a briefing item an estimate on interest rates and a tighter proposal recognizing market fluctuation.
Chairman Henley asked if there is consensus to instruct staff to come forward with the resolution in two weeks. The Board voiced no objections.

DISTRICT COMMISSIONERS’ REPORTS
Commissioner Maloy stated he would like to see if there is consensus from the Board to remove specific language from the billboard regulations on the SR 46 issue as it contradicts what the Board recently voted for.
Commissioner Morris stated he believes this issue will be coming back to the Board.
Commissioner Van Der Weide stated if the Board can make themselves clear on issues, they can save staff time. He stated he feels this is a bigger issue than a district item as it deals with the different issues such as billboards and flags. He stated he would rather direct staff to eliminate those sections.
Chairman Henley stated he has no problem with what Commissioner Maloy is bringing up, but he feels it would be premature bringing this issue up since the District Commissioner is absent.
Commissioner Maloy stated he was just asking if there were any objections in removing that language.
Commissioner Maloy stated he will be looking forward to putting revisions in the Land Development Code regarding bringing equity to the zoning classifications for schools.
Commissioner Morris stated the Board has had discussions relative to the ongoing process of looking at land for a park in The Crossings area. He stated he has met with The Crossings representative and their key interest is the potential restrictive use of the Greenwood Lakes Middle School site for activities. The main issue is the school has a sidewalk problem. He stated the Crossing Guards have indicated that a lot of children have been using the eastern boundary of The Crossings to walk to school. He said he would like a sidewalk installed along Longwood/Lake Mary Road. He added he would like an opportunity to meet with the Master’s Association to see what they would like to see and come back with a request. The Board voiced no objections.
Commissioner Morris stated he would like to make the Board aware that the Forest Association Board will be meeting relative to a potential traffic light at their entrance. He stated 1/3 of the cost would be paid by the Forest Association, 1/3 by Seminole County and 1/3 by the City of Lake Mary.
Chairman Henley informed the Board that he took the time to meet with three businesses in his district, Electone, Parker Hannifin and S & S Contract Furniture. He stated he let the businesses know that the Board is pleased to have them in Seminole County. All three came forth with the same problem. That is the labor market in skilled and unskilled people with many of the people not having transportation to get to work. He stated one of the contracting companies is looking for a larger place and he wants to know if he is going to have the same problem that he had with the permitting department.
Commissioner Morris stated he will be touring the United Studios and Dynamic Healthcare.
Chairman Henley stated there have been improvements in attracting industry to Seminole County. He stated Tracy Geigle, EDC, met with the companies to review the problems with them.
Chairman Henley recommended reappointing Randy Berridge and Jack Zelsman to the Program Review Committee for a 2-year term ending January 1, 2001.
Motion by Commissioner Morris, seconded by Commissioner Van Der Weide to reappoint Randy Berridge and Jack Zelsman to the Program Review Committee.
Districts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.
Commissioner Morris stated he would like to inform the Board that there has been some correspondence relative to the Wekiva Study issue. The County has been trying to assist East Central Florida Regional Planning Council (ECFRPC) relative to the study and there is a questionable nonsupport from the environmental community. The County has requested the environmental entities, as third party sources, if they have information regarding any other studies and they do not want to provide this information to the County. He stated he would advise staff to continue to resolve this issue with the public and allow the ECFRPC to continue to do their study.
The meeting was recessed at 10:50 a.m., reconvening at 7:00 p.m. with only the County Attorney, Robert McMillan, in attendance and Deputy Clerk Carylon Cohen, who replaced Deputy Clerk Eva Roach from the Opening Session.
