B1: A-Ebba Springs Fact Sheet original pdf

Thumbnail of the first page of the PDF
Page 1 of 1 page

U.S. Board on Geographic Names Ebba Springs Proposal Fact Sheet • The U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) has received a proposal from a property owner near Commons Ford Ranch Metropolitan Park and the Austin Lake Hills neighborhood to officially name a natural spring on their property as Ebba Springs. • The BGN is responsible by law for standardizing geographic names for use by the Federal Government. The spring currently has no name that is official for federal use. • The BGN places importance on local opinion and therefore in accordance with their standard processes, asks for input from local government elected officials who represent community members who may have an interest. • The requesting property owner states that the spring has been known locally for many years as Ebba Springs, and the property is known as the "Ebba Springs Wildlife Refuge." • The City Council is asked to provide its recommendation on the naming to the BGN due to the property being located on land in Travis County that falls under the Extra Terrestrial Jurisdiction of the City Austin to protect the nearby Colorado watershed. Recommendations are also being sought from the Travis County Commissioners Court and Texas Geographic Names Committee. Federally recognized Tribes also have an opportunity to provide comments. • This item comes to the Parks and Recreation Board as a courtesy review for comment because of the spring’s proximity to Commons Ford Ranch Metropolitan Park. • The City Council is scheduled to consider its recommendation on this matter at the October 15, 2020 meeting. 1 of 1

C1: Board Member Faust Presentation original pdf

Page 1 of 4 pages

Parks and Recreation Board Financial Committee PARB Bylaws Article 8 – Standing Committees  Bylaws adopted November 2016 mandate the Contracts Committee and Land, Facilities and Program Committee. Charge of LFP Committee to “serve in an advisory capacity on issues of development and programs of the public parks, playgrounds and recreational facilities, and the general welfare of the parks, playgrounds and recreational facilities.”  May 27, 2020 PARB discussed continuation or termination of Land, Facilities and Program Committee.  PARB could create a Financial Committee to replace Land, Facilities and Program Committee. Reasoning for and Operation of Financial Committee  Challenges to funding Parks and Recreation goals are increasing. State law changes to City’s control over property tax rate changes and COVID-19 related closures of fee generating activities and additional expenses are causing additional pressure on PARD; closure of fee-based programs and facilities may continue on and off into the future creating volatility.  PARB would benefit from members being able to develop more in-depth knowledge on budget issues and additional PARD funding opportunities, to provide meaningful input on budget and funding to PARD staff, and to be more effective advocates for PARD funding.  Financial Committee would set an annual agenda for itself each year outlining the financial items meriting consideration, including an annual review of capital improvements, an annual review of fees charged by PARD, proposals for generating income to be used for parks and parks acquisition, and at least two meetings reserved each year for reviewing the PARD proposed budget prior to presentation and consideration of the budget by the PARB. Next Steps  Board and Staff discussion on creation of Financial Committee as advisory committee to PARB on issues of budget, fees, revenue, funding and other financial matters.  Recommend PARB bylaw amendment at October PARB meeting.  City Council Audit & Finance Committee reviews and approves or denies at November meeting.
