            County Attorney
 It is recommended that the data herein presented be given formal consideration by the Board of

 County Commissioners.

 DESCRIPTION AND CONDITIONS:

On October 21, 2003, this Board discussed two proposed versions of the ballot language for
the Infrastructure Sales Surtax Referendum (“Penny for Pasco”). The first of those two
versions (Version #1), drafted by Michael Nurrenbrock for the Board’s consideration,
reimburses the District School Board of Pasco County for the .5 millage reduction prior to the
distribution of the surtax proceeds to the parties, effectively reducing the total amount of
proceeds received by each party.

  Upon the discussion by the Board on October 21, 2003, the County Attorney’s Office has
  continued to work with the parties, a representative of the Florida Department of Revenue and
i has modified the proposed language (Version #2). A meeting was held with the City Clerks and

  Managers to discuss the distribution of the surtax proceeds. At that time, the representatives of
  the municipalities agreed to the distribution format that reimburses the School District prior to
  the distribution to all the parties. Version #2 of the proposed referendum language contains the
  agreed distribution format along with additional modifications for clarification purposes and to
  comply with statutory requirements that the ballot language be an explanatory statement of the
  chief purpose of the measure and contain a brief general description of the projects to be
  funded while not exceeding 75 words in length.

Today, the County Attorney’s Office requests this Board to consider the two proposed versions
of the draft referendum language and make the determination as to which version shall appear
on the March 9, 2004, ballot.

ALTERNATIVES AND ANALYSIS:

Board        of County Commissioners is requested to consider the following alternatives:

                 1.      Adopt the Penny for Pasco referendum ballot language Version #1 which is
                         the version considered by the Board at its last meeting.
                 2.      Adopt the Penny for Pasco referendum ballot language Version #2 which
                         contains modifications made for clarity.
                 3.      Direct the County Attorney’s Office as to other modifications to the ballot
                         language.
 RECOMMENDATIONS AND FUNDING:

The County Attorney’s Office recommends that the Board of County Commissioners adopt
alternative number 2 as this distribution format has been agreed to by the District School Board
and the Municipalities of Pasco County, and the Florida Department of Revenue considers the
language to be legally acceptable and the language meets the requirements of Florida Statutes.
