Attachment: Financial Advisor Recommendation Letter - 2013 Rev Refunding Bonds.07FEB2013.pdf --  With interest rates at a historical low, the county stands to save $5.5 million (over the scheduled period of original). Jim Seuffert, Director of Financial Management, confirmed there would not be any credit extension, nor had the county participated in any IRS's (Interest Rate Swaps) in the bond's history. He said current credit limit exceeded bond debt by a very measurable amount and that the county's financial rating remains AA. -- Approved, Unanimous

39.: Park and Recreation Athletic Field Sign Policy:  (Addition to regular agenda) -- Staff recommended that the Board maintain the adopted sign policy. Lakewood Ranch Little League (LRLL) President David Dees explained to the Board that their sign business will not carry the financial weight of the organization if they are forced to go back to fabric signs. LRLL chose to ignore the county's sign ordnance believing the "safety factor" that worried county officials had been taken care of. LRLL agreed with the motion to have them first replace the half inch bolts with flat ones (to prevent injury risk) and soon meet with the county and modify the policy if it is in both party's interest. -- Approved, Unanimous   (Full Story)

Commissioner Gallen said, "I would like to make a motion for county and staff to get with volunteers and others to see what alternative use we can find for the old jail." We should put a panel together. -- Approved, Unanimous

Gallen said he was working with School Board District One Barbara Harvey on opening the school yards to after hour activi
