County Reacts to GREC Purchase Agreement

The only item on the evening agenda of the March 28, 2017 Regular Public Hearing was a discussion about the GRU/City of Gainesville purchase of the GREC Biomass Power plant.

After discussing the issue the County Commission decided to send a letter to the Mayor of the City of Gainesville Lauren Poe, signed by the Chair), discouraging them to move forward with the purchase agreement, and restart the arbitration process.

The County Commission is one of the largest customers for GRU, as well as the only elected body representing the 30 percent of GRU customers in the unincorporated area.

The letter begins:

Dear Mayor Poe,

On behalf of the Alachua County Commission, I want to thank you for allowing Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU) General Manager Ed Bielarski to participate in our Public Hearing on Tuesday night. Your quick response to our request for him to present was much appreciated.  Mr. Bielarski stayed with us for over three and a half hours, fielded our questions, listened to our point of view, and the public was provided an excellent opportunity to hear the details of the proposal to purchase the GREC facility and extinguish the Power Purchase Agreement.

As one of the locally elected bodies representing the citizens of Gainesville, the only elected body representing the 30% of GRU customers in the County’s unincorporated area, and one of GRU’s largest customers, the County has an obligation and responsibility to add its voice to this important discussion.

Proposals are due no later than 5 p.m., on Friday, May 12, 2017, at the Alachua County Community Support Services office (218 S.E. 24th St., Gainesville).

View details about the Healthy Baby Home Visit Program.

View the Request for Proposals.

The focus of the Healthy Baby Home Visit Program is to arrange visits by a registered nurse to assess the physical, social, and emotional health of mothers and babies. They will also provide guidance on issues such as family bonding, breastfeeding, healthy sleeping habits, infant safety (car seats, pool safety, etc.), and infant growth and development. A key component of this visit will be the early identification of needs and referrals for appropriate services. This program will be available to every new mother in Alachua County if she chooses to participate. 

The Alachua County Commission created the Children’s Services Advisory Board (CSAB) with the overarching goal to assure all Alachua County children are ready to enter kindergarten – this program advances this mission. The Commission appropriated $1.2 million to fund programs directed at early childhood development with an emphasis on children, prenatal to age five, and their families.

Alachua County’s Environmental Protection Department (EPD) has received $300,000 in funding from the St. Johns River Water Management District to reduce water use by replacing irrigated turf with Florida Friendly Landscaping. A 50 percent rebate, up to $2,000 is available to property owners that meet program criteria while funds are available. The program is open to homeowners, commercial properties, and Homeowner Associations within Alachua County, including the municipalities.

Participants are encouraged to call EPD staff at 352-264-6800 to make sure they fully understand the program requirements before making changes in their landscapes. Work must be conducted by qualified “SWAP Shops” and must include at least partial removal of traditional irrigation.

“Newer homes with irrigation systems use over 350 gallons per day on average,” said EPD Water Conservation Coordinator Stacie Greco.

County Recognizes Impact of National Service

April 4, 2017, is recognized by the County Commission as “Day of Recognition for National Service” in Alachua County. On April 4, Alachua County and the City of Gainesville will join the Alachua County Foster Grandparent Program and more than 4,093 city and county leaders across the country in a national bipartisan initiative to highlight Senior Corps and national service. As part of the day’s celebration, County and City officials, County Public School staff, and Foster Grandparent staff and volunteers will have an opportunity to shadow Foster Grandparent volunteers at Lake Forest Elementary school from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

The Day of Recognition for National Service not only recognizes the positive impact of national service but also stops to thank those who serve and encourages citizens to give back to their communities.

In Alachua County, more than 104 Foster Grandparent Program volunteers served over 90,000 hours of one-on-one assistance to over 200 children in schools, after-school programs, and childcare centers. These volunteers provide vital support to local children by working towards positive, education-related outcomes. The County Foster Grandparent Program has been financially sponsored by the County Commission for over 43 years.

“I am proud to be working with Alachua County as we continue to strengthen communities through national service,” said Acting CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service Kim Mansaray. “County officials and Mayors are leaders who get things done. They know first-hand the value of national service in tackling local problems. I commend Alachua County and Gainesville City officials for working with us to improve lives and strengthen communities through national service.”

Alachua County Foster Grandparent Program matches low-income volunteers aged 55 and older with children and young people who would benefit from one-on-one assistance, to increase opportunities for them to succeed, while providing challenging and rewarding experiences for the volunteers. 

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is a federal agency that engages millions of Americans in service through Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, the Social Innovation Fund and other programs.

For more information on how to volunteer with the Alachua County Foster Grandparent Program, call 352-264-6731.

DOH-Alachua Addresses County Health Rankings

The Florida Department of Health in Alachua County (DOH-Alachua) recognizes the value in measuring health outcomes and today (March 29, 2017) acknowledged the 2017 County Health Rankings & Roadmaps tool released by the University of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. This study highlights the many community factors that influence health and uses established data, much of which is available from the Department online.

“The 2017 County Health Rankings reflect the tireless efforts of our partners in advancing health in our community,” stated DOH-Alachua Administrator Paul Myers. “While we celebrate the collective progress we have made, we recognize that much work must be done and are confident that the commitment our community has demonstrated in making healthy choices the easy ones will continue.”

These rankings are a snapshot of the health of counties across the country, and they emphasize that health is not a singular effort but a combined work in progress across all community partners. The Department works in collaboration with local governments, non-profit organizations, health care facilities, business groups, schools, faith-based organizations, and many other stakeholders to improve the health of all people in Alachua County. These rankings use data related to physical environments, social and economic factors, health behaviors and clinical care.

In Alachua County, the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is designed to address opportunities for improved health that have been identified by the community. The Department has partnered with many stakeholders to implement the CHIP and regularly collaborates to track progress.

DOH-Alachua collaborates with its community partners to prioritize local health improvement activities in the community. Stakeholders share a common goal of ensuring access to comprehensive care and promoting wellness to all Alachua County residents. This strong collaboration is evident by improvement in the areas that determine future health.

“The Alachua County Board of County Commissioners continues to support our County Health Department in improving access to care and the control of communicable diseases,” stated Alachua County Commission Chair Ken Cornell. “We also support policies that encourage healthy environments and lifestyles.”

“The School Board of Alachua County has a long history of collaborating with our public Health Department and community partners to ensure that students have access to essential health services,” stated Interim Alachua County Schools Superintendent Sandy Hollinger. “We recognize that health is a key factor for successful academic progress.”

Last week the Florida Department of Health celebrated a one-year milestone as the first integrated Department of Health in the nation to achieve national accreditation through the Public Health Accreditation Board. Public health departments play a critical role in protecting and improving the health of people and communities. The seal of accreditation signifies that the Florida Department of Health has been rigorously examined and meets or exceeds national standards that promote continuous quality improvement for public health.
