Good Afternoon Commissioners,

The following items will NOT be on the October consent agenda:

Honorary resolutions to be sent forward to the BOC meeting for a formal vote and recognition.

Schools Item 14. This is related to the land swap between Knox County, The City of Knoxville, and the Knox County School Board for the new school at Lonsdale. Superintendent Thomas, Please review the basic details of the deal and the timeline.

Engineering Item 21. Jim, please provide insight as to why the increase has gone up by $105K since we originally approved the resolution last November.

Engineering Item 25. Jim, Please provide insight as to what exactly the Pavement Management Software is going to do. I know we are working intentionally to be more efficient in this area; is this a new investment in systems or a renewal of a current systems provider.

Community Development Item 26. Jenny, Please provide a brief update on this program. Is this an extension of a current contract or are we going with a new vendor to help with this important program.
