The agenda for the upcoming Board of County Commissioners Fiscal Year 2020 and 2021 retreat has been released. The retreat is slated for Monday, Jan. 25.
According to the agenda, some of the top priorities for the retreat are a community impact report on the Leon CARES expenditure plan as well as a discussion on Policy No. 01-05, “Rules of Procedure for Meetings of the Leon County Board of County Commissioners.”
The Leon CARES community impact report will cover the impacts of the program so far. The County Commissioners voted to implement the Leon CARES expenditure plan in July 2020 to distribute $51.2 million in Coronavirus Relief Funds. The goal of Leon CARES was to provide financial assistance to businesses and individuals suffering due to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.
The discussion on Policy No. 01-05, which pertains to meeting procedures, will be led by County Attorney Chasity O’Steen. At their Dec. 8 meeting, the County Commissioners voted to review meeting procedures at the retreat. According to the retreat agenda, the commissioners could consider making amendments to Policy No. 01-05.
Later in the day, the retreat will also include a review of the Fiscal Year 2017-2021 Strategic Plan, including five-year targets and goals.
The retreat will take place Monday at Florida State University’s Dodd Hall from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
