In appreciation for the Boards actions, the Hippodrome Theatre sent the following letter:

Dear Board of County Commissioners,

“Art is a nation’s most precious heritage. For it is in our works of art that we reveal to ourselves and to others the inner vision which guides us as a nation.”   – Lyndon Johnson, on signing into existence the National Endowment on the Arts

On behalf of the Hippodrome’s supporters, patrons, acting company, and staff, we wanted to express our deepest gratitude to you for your recent policy decisions regarding the Tourism Development Council grant application and funding process.

Non-profit arts organizations contribute significantly to the fabric of Alachua County - including the interwoven financial, cultural, educational, and tourism-related sectors. According to Americans for the Arts, non-profit arts and cultural organizations represent over $85 million in annual economic impact, and provide 2,344 full-time equivalent jobs in Alachua County.

We deeply appreciate your time and attention as you listened to the concerns raised by many of the region’s most cherished and long-standing cultural organizations. Your decision to examine the TDC funding process is beneficial in every way: for residents, for visitors, for our economy, and for the smart and innovative growth your commission has exemplified. We feel very strongly that our work to offer unique cultural and entertainment opportunities is valuable, and we are humbled by the support of your leadership as we leverage our resources for the greater good of Alachua County’s residents and visitors.

We know you have many pressing and critical issues before you, and we are eternally grateful for your comprehensive understanding and attention to our concerns. Thank you once again.

With warmest regards,
Jessica Hurov, Managing Director
Lauren Caldwell, Artistic Director

Lobbyist Registration Renewals Are Due July 1st

Alachua County is reminding all lobbyists that they are required to renew their registration by July 1, 2016. The lobbyist registration must be renewed by July 1, of each year. Lobbyists can renew by filling out and turning in a registration form online or turning in or mailing a paper form.

Register online.

Print PDF form to mail in.

On June 10, 2014, the Alachua County Board of County Commissioners enacted a Lobbyist Registration Ordinance. The ordinance requires registration of all lobbyists who engage in efforts to influence the Board on matters within its official jurisdiction. Before engaging in lobbying, each lobbyist will be required to file a registration statement with the Alachua County Clerk of the Court, which contains general identification information as to the lobbyist and their client(s). Even if lobbying only on an occasional basis, it is important that the lobbying rules are followed.

The intent and purpose of the ordinance reads:

The County Commission of Alachua County, Florida, hereby determines and declares that the operation of responsible government requires that the fullest opportunity be afforded to the people to petition their county government for the redress of grievances and to express freely to the elected officials their opinions on legislation and other actions and issues; and that to preserve and maintain the integrity of the governmental decision-making process, it is necessary that the identity and activities of certain persons who engage in efforts to influence county commissioners, on matters within its official jurisdiction, either by direct communication or by solicitation of others to engage in such efforts, be publicly and regularly disclosed.

Environmental Protection Receives $414,000 in Funding for Water Conservation Projects

The Alachua County Environmental Protection Department is receiving three grants to continue local springs protection and water conservation efforts. 

A $9,000 grant from the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission Protect Florida Springs Tag Grant program will be used to purchase media time for a water conservation television commercial as well as Facebook marketing designed to encourage low water and fertilizer use in landscapes.

Grants from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the Suwannee and St. Johns River Water Management Districts will go towards two rebate programs. The first program provides $105,000 in funding to incentivize the State’s voluntary Florida Water StarSM certification program for water conservation. Through the program, builders can receive a $700 rebate for new residential and commercial properties that achieve certification.

The second rebate program includes a total of $300,000 for property owners that replace irrigated turf with Florida Friendly LandscapingTM (FFL). A $0.50/ft2 rebate will be offered to property owners that switch to non-irrigated FFL, while $0.35/ft2 will be offered for switching to FFL with correctly installed micro-irrigation. Rebates will be available for residential and commercial properties, with no single rebate to exceed $2,000. UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County and their Master Gardeners are partners for this project.

The rebate programs are expected to be available starting in the fall of 2016. Information will be posted on the Alachua County Environmental Protection Water website as soon as the rebate programs are open.

The Florida Department of Health in Alachua County Urges the Community to Get Tested for HIV

In honor of National HIV Testing Day, the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County is partnering with Black AIDS Services and Education, Inc. (B.A.S.E.) to provide free HIV testing at Archer Family Health Care (16939 S.W. 134th Avenue, Archer) on June 27, 2016, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

National HIV Testing Day is an effort that encourages individuals to become proactive about their health and get tested for HIV. Counselors also educate individuals on the risk factors associated with HIV transmission and promote safe practices.

Almost 1.2 million people in the US are living with HIV. This virus is not restricted to any specific race or population; therefore, no one is immune from infection. There were 104,554 people living with HIV/AIDS in Florida as of January 31, 2014. About 16% of people infected with the virus are unaware of their status. In 2014, there were 6,132 newly reported cases of HIV infection in Florida.

“Getting tested is the first step in taking care of your health and controlling the spread of HIV,” said Gay Koehler-Sides, HIV/AIDS Program Coordinator for Area 3/13. “Once you know your status, you can make informed decisions about your health. If you are positive, we can help get you into care and on HIV medications to improve your health and reduce the chance that you will transmit the virus to your partners.”

The Florida Department of Health in Alachua County supports National HIV Testing Day. Community-based organizations and other health care providers are encouraged to help prevent the spread of HIV by raising awareness, providing support, and offering testing during routine health care visits.

To find an HIV testing site near you, text your zip code to 477493 or visit the Stop the Spread website.

For more information about HIV services in Alachua County, please visit the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County website.

For more information, contact Gay Koehler-Sides at 352-334-7965 or Gay.Koehler-Sides@flhealth.gov.
