Staff Recommended Motion
Staff recommends approval of Rebecca Higgins as the Representative of Lady Lake to the Metropolitan Planning Agency’s (MPO) Technical Advisory Committee, and reassignment of C.T. Eagle as the Alternate Member to the committee.
On September 7, 2023, Wendy Then resigned her position of Senior Planner with the Town of Lady Lake. Her resignation created the vacancy of a representative to serve on the Technical Advisory Committee of the Lake-Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). C.T. Eagle, Public Works Director, presently serves as the alternate member representing the Town of Lady Lake, and he would like to remain in the post of alternate representative. The current vacancy has afforded the opportunity to allow Rebecca Higgins, the Town’s current Senior Planner, to serve as the Town’s representative on the Technical Advisory Committee.
The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is comprised of planners and engineers from the various local governments comprising the MPO. Therefore, the input provided by the TAC is of a very technical nature. This may include making technical design recommendations and verifying that all documents conform to the appropriate standards. Rebecca possesses the knowledge and experience needed to make informed decisions and to assist the committee as a voting member to forward recommendations to the Lake-Sumter MPO Governing Board for their consideration.
