SEMINOLE – The Seminole City Council approved the allocation of the year-end fund balance to meet several of its goals as well as unforeseen city needs.

At its Dec. 10 meeting, the Council unanimously approved Ordinance No. 14-2013, authorizing a budget amendment to increase Charter Section, the Administration Department and the Public Works Department accounts by $295,100.

The city identifies its year-end fund balance at the end of each fiscal year, said City Manager Frank Edmunds, who brings recommendations for distribution of the money to the Council.

The ordinance increases the Charter Section account by $12,000 for office equipment and an email record retention system.

“Our email management system right now is a completely manual system,” said Edmunds. “Our IT folks, as time allows, will attempt to manage that.”

A new system “will make it more automated and easier for staff to manage.”

The Administration Department will receive an additional $110,000 for office equipment, public art and city branding. The recreation center will receive $41,000 to recondition its two pools, while the library will receive $80,000 to replenish and update its lending materials. The library receives money from the year-end fund balance annually.

Money also will be given to the Public Works Department for contract services, the creation of a community garden and the purchase of traffic calming devices.

At the same meeting, the Council also unanimously approved a resolution urging Gov. Rick Scott to review the Florida Public Service Commission’s recent approval of a $3.2 billion settlement agreement with Duke Energy Florida, formerly Progress Energy of Florida.

Councilor Chris Burke, who initially requested the resolution, said the Council was disappointed by “how [FPSC] voted to approve Duke Energy to be reimbursed the billions of dollars they spent on a nonexistent nuclear power plant. And we felt that it’s not fair to the residents of Seminole that they should be passed down this bill for something that wasn’t built.”
