Florida State Public Library Construction Grant: Michelle Brown informed the Board that Marian Deeney, the State Library liaison and member of the Public Library Construction Grant Committee, had called to advise the Library to increase their grant request from $315,000 to the $500,000 maximum allowed by the granting agency. The Board reviewed the prior construction project cost estimates and determined that adding architect fees [supplied to the Board after the original grant submission] as well as increasing the remodeling budget for impact windows, and the FFE [furniture, fixtures, equipment] for improved level of furniture and technology, would bring the grant budget up to the requested $500,000 figure.   A motion to approve the adjustment of the grant request to $500,000 was made by Cheryl Gowing, seconded by Donna Hurtak; motion passed.

Michelle Brown will contact Ms. Deeney to determine whether the State will require a new resolution from the Village Council, since the original Council resolution submitted with the grant proposal did specify the amount of grant request.

 

PUBLIC COMMENT: None

Meeting Adjourned at 9:35 am.

Respectfully submitted: Cheryl Gowing, Secretary
