Two Intergovernmental Agreements approved by Winter Park Town Council, Fraser Board of Trustees

An amended intergovernmental agreement for a joint Fraser-Winter Park Police Department has been approved by both town boards.

Winter Park remains the managing agency responsible for administering bill paying, accounting, employee matters and insurance. Police Chief Glen Trainor reports directly to the Fraser town manager and Winter Park town manager, according to the document.

Up until the amended agreement was approved this week, the apportionment of expenses was 60 percent Winter Park, and 40 percent Fraser. The agreed apportionment is now 63 percent Winter Park, and 37 percent Fraser. Additionally, the town of Fraser will pay a 2 percent fee for Winter Park’s administration services. This apportionment percentage will be re-evaluated annually and can be amended if both towns agree.

The second intergovernmental agreement approved this week pertains to the cooperative efforts between Fraser and Winter Park’s public works departments and the sharing of equipment and personnel such as heavy equipment and equipment operators. The formal agreement has been talked about for eight years, said Jeff Durbin, Fraser’s town manager.

Both boards wanted the details in writing for the benefit of any newly elected officials, Durbin said.
