11. Florida Institute of Technology Stadium Naming Rights Agreement
Attachment: AgreementNewSignedMcCay2019.pdf
Minutes: 

Mr. Susin pulled this item.  He suggested that there are advertising dollars that we may be missing. He further commented that it had been discussed to hire an outside agency to try to capture some possible revenue. Ms. Descovich said that she recommended that this discussion be held at a Board Retreat or Board Workshop and ask for staff to bring suggestions and/or concerns.  Board members were in agreement.  Dr. Mullins said that he and Mr. Susin had a conversation a couple of weeks prior and he said that staff was already working on developing a proposal and study of what opportunities may be available.

Mr. Susin asked if he could get a tentative date of when they might get that information.  Dr. Mullins said that he would follow-up with staff and get a timeline by the end of the week.



Motions:

Approve the 2019-2022 Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) Naming Rights Agreement  effective July 1, 2019 and ending on June 30, 2022.

F. Financial Services

14. Financial Statements for the Period Ending April 30, 2019
Attachment: Financial Statements for April 30, 2019.pdf
Minutes: 

Mr. Susin pulled this item.  He asked for Board members to go to page 19- Capital Projects Fund 2018-2019 Compared to 2017-2018 as of April 30, 2019.  He asked the Board to look at Local Sources as of April 2018 which were $83,785,398 and as of April 2019 are $100,147,156.

The ending fund balance was $130,005,908 in April 2018 and in 2019 was $167,634,676.  Mr. Susin said that he just wanted to clarify that revenues were going up.   Dr. Mullins said that more clarification could be provided at the Board Workshop following the meeting.

Ms. Belford believed the sales surtax was within those funds Mr. Susin mentioned.  She didn't want the public to leave thinking that we have this enormous amount of capital.  On that same note, if the sales surtax goes away in 2020, this fund looks very different. Not only will this fund look very different, but we are going to have to take dollars from the operating budget to cover facility needs.

Mr. Susin wanted to clarify that there were enough reserves to cover the hurricane deductible.



Motions:

Approve the April 30, 2019 Financial Statements.
