4. Additions/Deletions to Agenda

According to Section 120.525(2), Florida Statutes, additions to the published agenda will only

be made for "good cause" as determined by the "person designated to preside." The items

that have been added to the agenda were received by the District after publication of the

regular agenda. The Board was provided with the information filed and the District staff's

analyses of these matters. Staff has determined that action must be taken on these items

prior to the next Board meeting.

Therefore, it is the District staff's recommendation that good cause has been demonstrated

and should be considered during the Governing Board's meeting.

Staff Recommendation:

Approve the recommended additions and deletions to the published agenda if necessary.

Presenter: Blake C. Guillory, Executive Director
