 HIGH SPRINGS – High Springs City Commission members met July 9 and worked through a brief agenda.

During the 35-minute long meeting, Commissioners acted on two matters. The Commission approved an agreement between First Christian Academy and the City to provide a school resource officer to the school. The Commission also appointed Commissioner Linda Jones to continue as the City’s representative to the North Florida Regional Planning Council.

An intended quasi-judicial public hearing on first reading of an ordinance that would have amended the Future Land Use Plan Map of the City was tabled since the Plan Board continued their hearing of the item until the July 28 Plan Board Meeting.

A resolution that would have established and amended Land Development Code Administrative fees was also tabled.

A review of the City’s financial statements through March of this year was cut short due when Finance Director Jennifer Stull commented that the March figures reflected City finances prior to COVID-19. Areas she thought could be problematic and worth watching in the future included revenue sharing and income from sales taxes. On the positive side, water and sewer funds increased because so many people remained at home during the previous month.

“We are watching our expenditures very carefully and only spending on items we absolutely must have until we see where we are financially,” said Stull.
