CONSENT AGENDA

1. Request Approval of Amendment 1 to the Utility Upsizing Impact Fee Credit Agreement between the City of Mount Dora and Forestar (USA ) Real Estate Group, Inc. (formerly with D.R. Horton, Inc.), Related to the Timberwalk PUD. Council approved Resolution No. 2020-139 for the impact fee agreement between D.R. Horton, Inc. and the City in August 2020 (Attachment #1). The utilities that were upsized include the sanitary sewer, reclaimed, and potable water mains. These increases in size allow for the increased flows adjacent growth will need in the future. The total cost of up-sizing the water, sewer and reclaim mains was estimated at the time to be $567,015.00.

On June 3, 2022, D.R. Horton assigned its interest in the agreement to Forestar (USA) Real Estate Group, Inc. Amendment 1 to the agreement seeks to memorialize the assignment of interest in the agreement and adjust the total impact fee credit. The original Timberwalk agreement stipulated a total impact fee credit of $567,893.  The new total cost incurred by the developer to construct the augmented utility mains is $600,671.72. Section 6 of the existing agreement is proposed to be amended to adjust the total impact fee credit. The increase of the impact fee credit amount of $32,778.72 will be cost neutral to the existing utility customers.

2. Request Adoption of Resolution 2022-42, Rankings for Architectural and Engineering Services for the Community Resource and Recreation Center. On March 24, 2022, RFQ (Request for Qualification) #22-GS-003 for Architectural and Engineering Services for the Community Resource and Recreation Center was issued. Seven (7) submittals were received by the opening date of April 25, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. The Evaluation Committee elected to hold individual Presentation/Question & Answer sessions with each of the top three (3) ranked/shortlisted firms. This item is requesting approval of the final ranking and entering into negotiations with the top ranked firm. If unable to reach a successful negotiation with the #1 ranked firm, staff will cease negotiations and move to negotiations with the #2 ranked firm and so on until a successful negotiation is achieved. The Evaluation Committee scoring of the three-shortlist firms resulted in the following final ranking:

#1 – Borrelli + Partners

#2 – Bentley Architects & Engineers Inc.

#3 – CPH, Inc.

3. Request Approval of the Agreement Between the City of Mount Dora and Round Lake Charter, Inc., Related to Before/After Care. This is a 3-year agreement between the City of Mount Dora and Round Lake Charter School that allows the City to continue operating a Before and After School program out of the Round Lake facility. This agreement has rental fees that come out of the recreation budget. The City pays Round Lake $150.00 for each week of facility use, as well as $.75 for each snack provided to the participants.

To cover the increasing cost of staff wages, the weekly After Care fee was increased slightly from $40 to $45 and the weekly Before Care fee was increased from $18 to $20. The revenue for this program is in the recreation budget.

4. Request Approval of the Agreement between the City of Mount Dora and Round Lake Charter, Inc., Related to Summer Camp. This is a 1-year agreement between the City of Mount Dora and Round Lake Charter School that allows the City to continue operating a Summer program out of the Round Lake facility. The City pays Round Lake $450.00 for each week of facility use, totaling $4,950.00 for 11 weeks of camp.  The camp fee for one week of summer camp ranges from $105 to $185. The weekly camp fee will increase to $110 to $195. Summer Camp serves 190-210 children per week.

5. Request Approval of the Agreement between the City of Mount Dora and Round Lake Charter, Inc., Related to Transportation. This is a 3-year agreement between the City of Mount Dora and Round Lake Charter School that allows the City to utilize Round Lake's buses during our Summer program. This agreement has transportation fees that come out of the recreation budget. The City pays Round Lake $4.25/mile for each mile of use and reimburses Round Lake at a rate of $19.00 per hour for bus drivers.

ACTION ITEMS

1. Request Approval of the Amended and Restated Parking Agreement between the City of Mount Dora Florida, the City of Mount Dora Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), and The First United Methodist Church, Inc. This agreement will extend this shared parking relationship for 10 additional years.

City Hall employees utilize parking during normal working hours and the parking lot is free to the public with the exception for church use.

2. Request Adoption of Resolution No. 2022-40, Reimposition of Fire Services Special Assessment. The Fire Services Assessment Rate per residential dwelling unit is $219, which represents 61% of the maximum allowed by ordinance. Commercial Rates are based on square footage of the facility. This resolution, if approved by City Council, will set the maximum rates for residential and commercial properties for the coming year.  At the last City Council meeting in September, the final rates for the coming year will be established.  Fire Services may include operating functions, salaries of the firefighters and officers, capital programs and projects.

PUBLIC HEARINGS - RESOLUTIONS/ORDINANCES

1. Request Approval of the Final Reading of Ordinance No. 2022-39, Annexation for Lake County Water Authority (153.79 Acres). The applicant (Lake County Water Authority) has petitioned the City for annexation for several parcels (153.79 acres) located south of SR 46, the terminus of Robie Avenue, and on the west side of Round Lake Road. This action is for annexation only. The lands are eligible for annexation, contiguous to existing city limits adjacent to the west (land-fill site) and located within the City/County Joint Planning Agreement (JPA) boundary. The annexation application fee of $2,000.00 has been waived.

2. Request Approval of Final Reading of Ordinance No. 2022-07, Amending Prohibited Parking in Specified Places. In Sec. 42-31. - Prohibited Parking in Specified Places (6) it currently states the following: "Within an alley in a business district, except for the expeditious loading or unloading of materials." Staff is proposing to change that statement to the following: "Within an alley in a business district, whether attended or unattended, so as to provide free passage for emergency vehicles; Blocking an alley may be approved by the City Manager or designee for construction, repair, or service vehicles." There is no cost associated with this Ordinance.
