MINUTES - Meeting date January 13, 2014

The meeting was called to order at 5:32 PM by Chair Benson. Roll call - attendees: J Benson, S Sturgill, H A Duncan; absentees: A Gaussart, R Garrett

Minutes of the November 2013 meeting were unavailable to be approved. (December 2013 - cancelled, no quorum)

The 2014 Meeting Calendar was presented, a call to motion for approval requested, motion was placed to accept the dates and new time of 6 PM as published by Sturgill, seconded by Duncan.

Conserve All Ways Inc. renewal with the Division of Corporations was discussed and it was determined that Benson would submit the fees electronically and follow up with a reimbursement request to be submitted to SSWCD Secretary Sturgill.

Niagara's permit was discussed in general conversation after supervisors were presented with a copy of a Letter of Objection penned by Linda Bystrak, President of Oklawaha Valley Audubon Society and Supervisor of Lake Soil & Water Conservation District.

CFWI Draft Regional Water Supply Plan was discussed in general by supervisors with note of upcoming dates for public comments and meetings.

Supervisor Sturgill mentioned Sean Law vs. City of Longwood case which includes landscape violations which have been imposed by the City. Mr. Law has an organic edible garden located in his front yard which has become an issue that has been elevated to the State's Supreme Court. Sturgill questioned whether SSWCD could be of assistance in some manner to alleviate or lessen the severity of the situation. Benson stated that she would invest time in this matter.

Sturgill informed the supervisors that he contacted Michael Ertel regarding insurance liability issues for road cleaning volunteers and reported that SSWCD would not be liable for issues that may arise. Benson questioned whether Mr. Ertel was a valid resource for this information. General discussion ensued and no determination was completed.

After the financial report was presented by Sturgill, general discussion of means to increase funding for SSWCD was  held. Duncan informed the board that prior experience within Seminole County provided him with the knowledge that at one time Seminole County had a Grants Department with services available. He informed the board that he would verify that the department is operating and seek guidance for SSWCD's access to such services.

Sturgill and Benson held a brief discussion pertaining to the storage facility that is included in the monthly budget and it was again determined that this fee was beyond the means of the District. Benson stated that she has secured a small business office where these items may be stored for a period of time, eliminating the budget item altogether. A motion was entered by Sturgill to remove all property of SSWCD from the storage facility and relocate to Benson's office space. Duncan seconded the motion.

With the meeting concluded, this session was adjourned at 7:25 PM
