The FY14 budget            for beach patrol was $60,000. The proposal consisted of increasing this budget by $52,211 to start the 2014 beach season, plus an additional $93,816 in one-time capital purchases such as a mobile tower, an ATV, a jet ski with trailer, a utility ATV. The total budget increase needed for FY15 would be $95,484. Staff was asked          to return at the Board’s February work session with a less expensive proposal.

                        Finance Director Tonya Miller presented the entire list of projects for SPLOST 3, SPLOST 4, and SPLOST 5 and discussed every project that has not yet been completed.

 

3.         Update on Public Works master plan and vehicle maintenance building. REPORT

 

                        Public Works Director Becky Rowell and Robert Ussery, of Ussery-Rule      Architects, presented the proposed Public Works Master Plan. Phase 1 of the plan was to build a shop for the Fleet Maintenance Division. The total cost of Phase 1 was $2,650,000. Phase 2 would be to repurpose the H Building currently used by the Glynn County Sheriff’s Department for use by the Traffic Engineering Division at a cost of $410,000. The total cost of Phases 1 and 2, $3,060,000 would be funded by SPLOST 5, the Glynn County Reserved Fund Balance, and interest received from SPLOST 5.

                        Ms. Rowell said the build out of the Master Plan (Phase 3) consisted of adding buildings for Administration, Engineering, Roads & Drainage, and Facilities. The total cost of Phase 3 is $3,540,000.

                        The Board asked Ms. Rowell to place the bidding of the construction services for Phase 1, the development of construction drawings for Phase 2, and the funding allocations for both, on the February 6, 2014, regular meeting agenda for consideration.
