WE WILL NOW MOVE ON TO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD BEAUTIFICATION RECOGNITION PROGRAM.

WE HAVE A GENERAL MANAGER HERE, BUT BEFORE AND I'M GOING TO JUST SHARE WITH YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE PROGRAM, THE CITY OF TAMRAT TAKES GREAT PRIDE IN ENHANCING THE VISUAL IMAGE OF OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, IMPROVING LIVABILITY AND PROMOTING COMMUNITY SPIRIT.

AND SO THIS EVENING, THE MAYOR AND COMMISSION PROUDLY PRESENT OUR NEIGHBORHOOD BEAUTIFICATION RECOGNITION AWARDS FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER.

THIS AWARD IS GIVEN TO RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES THAT DISPLAY ARCHITECTURAL APPEAL AND LANDSCAPE MAINTENANCE AND SUSTAINABLE DESIGNS SO THAT THE VISION OF THE PROPER CONTRIBUTION TO THE VISUAL, BEAUTY AND VIBRANCY OF THE CITY OF TAMARAC IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE.

I ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS AND I HAVE TO SHOW A GENERAL MANAGER WHO WILL ACCEPT ON BEHALF OF THE PROPERTY OWNER, ARE YOU HERE? AND WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY A FEW WORDS? I'M TRYING TO SEE IF I CAN SEE.

I TAKE IT THAT THIS REPORT THAT WE STILL NOT GET A CHANCE TO JOIN US.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? OH, THERE YOU ARE.

AND THERE'S A LAST MINUTE CHANGE ON THE CALENDAR.

HI, I'M SANDRA RUIZ, VICE PRESIDENT OF SUNSHINE GASOLINE, OR THE OPERATORS OF THE GAS STATION AS WELL.

NOW WE'LL BE GOING TO DISTRICT ONE, EVANS AND LINDA BAILEY, WHOSE PROPERTY IS LOCATED AT FIFTY SIX POINT ONE NORTHWEST.

I THOUGHT I SAW MR. MRS. BAILEY ON THE LINE.

AND IF YOU ARE HERE AND WOULD LIKE TO SAY A FEW WORDS.

HELLO.

GOOD EVENING.

WE TAKE GREAT HONOR AND HAPPINESS BESTOWED UPON US.

WE WORK VERY HARD TO MAINTAIN OUR PROPERTY AND HOPEFULLY HAVE MY NEIGHBORS OR OUR NEIGHBORS WOULD FEEL THE SAME WAY.

YOU ARE NOW GOING TO DISTRICT TO ELIZABETH AND JOHN ZACKY AND TZATZIKI.

YOU HIGH.

HI.

RIGHT.

I JUST WANT TO SAY I AM AMAZED BECAUSE WE WERE ACTUALLY WINNERS WHEN YOU DID THIS PROGRAM DURING THE FIRST ROUND.

I THINK IT WAS ABOUT TWO OR THREE YEARS AGO.

WE HAD A TOTALLY DIFFERENT FRONT.

WE HAD OUTDOOR TRAINS THAT COULD RUN AROUND THE HOUSE.

OUR HOUSE IS DIFFERENT COLOR.

THE ONLY THING THAT'S THE SAME, REALLY, IS THE WAY THE HOUSE LOOKS AND THE TREES.

NOW WE HAVE HIBISCUS IN THE FRONT.

WE HAVE KINGSMAN THOUGHT.

THIS IS ALL MY HUSBAND JOHN'S DOING.

I JUST PULL WEEDS.

THAT'S ALL I DO.

BUT WE WERE SO EXCITED.

I'M SORRY YOU COULDN'T BE HERE TONIGHT.

HE'S ACTUALLY AT A UNION MEETING, SO I SAID I'LL I'LL SIT IN FOR US AND SAY THANK YOU AGAIN.

SECOND TIME AROUND.

WE REALLY, REALLY APPRECIATE AND WE LOVE GREENHAVEN TWELVE AND ONE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

BEAUTIFUL.

WE WILL GET THE AWARD TO YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

OK, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

WE DO HAVE FOR DISTRICT THREE, ALL OF YOU ALL DAY AND I APOLOGIZE FOR NOT

[00:10:05]

PRONOUNCING CORRECTLY.

AND SHE'S AT SEVENTY SIX OR ONE EIGHTY EIGHT TAMARAC AND UNFORTUNATELY NOT ABLE TO ATTEND THIS EVENING.

BUT AS YOU CAN SEE, YOUR HOME IS BEAUTIFUL AND WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT SHE GETS HER AWARD SOME SOMETIME VERY SOON.

SO WE'LL MOVE OVER TO DISTRICT FOR CHRISTIE SATO SALVATO, WHOSE PROPERTY IS LOCATED 80, 20, ONE NORTHWEST 80, THIRD STREET AND TAMARAC AND.

I SEE THE CHRIS IS UNABLE TO ATTEND, BUT TRACY SALTER WILL ACCEPT ON BEHALF OF THE WIFE AND WILL YOU PLEASE CORRECT ME ON THE PRONUNCIATION? I APOLOGIZE VERY CLOSE.

IT'S DEL SOL.

SO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS AWARD.

I MEAN, WE'RE FAIRLY NEW TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD, BUT WE DEFINITELY PUT IN THE WORK TO MAINTAIN OUR NEW HOME AND TO MAKE EVERYTHING LOOK BEAUTIFUL.

SO WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL.

THANK YOU.

IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE WILL MAKE SURE TO GET YOUR WORDS YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

SO WE THANK EVERYONE.

AND CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF YOU FOR HAVING ONE OF THE MOST ATTRACTIVE AND WELL MAINTAINED PROPERTIES IN OUR CITY.

AND THANK YOU FOR PLAYING YOUR PART TO HELPING TAMRAT BE THE CITY FOR YOUR LIFE.

WE ARE GRATEFUL.

AND WE WILL NOW MOVE ON TO OUR COMMISSIONER, SPORTS COMMISSIONER BALTON.

[3.a. Commissioner Bolton]

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR, I HAVE NOTHING TO REPORT EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT IT IS BLACK HISTORY MONTH AND WE DID, YOU KNOW, TALK ABOUT BLACK HISTORY MONTH THAT ARE OUR VERY LAST MEETING.

I HAVE A VIDEO THAT IS COMING OUT TOMORROW THAT I WILL BE POSTING ON MY SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS.

SO FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SEE MY BLACK HISTORY MESSAGE, I WOULD LOVE THEM TO CHECK OUT FACEBOOK, NOT FOR ITS LAST COMMISSIONER, MARLON BOLTON.

OTHER THAN THAT, I FIND JOY IN GOING OUT TO THE COMMUNITY AND TALKING WITH THE RESIDENTS HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF GOING OUT IN THE COMMUNITY JUST TO BE, AGAIN, TALKING ABOUT IT OR THE WALL THAT IS ON COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD THAT IS SLATED TO COME TO COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD.

SO FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN EMAILING AND ASKING ABOUT THAT PROJECT, I JUST WANT THEM TO KNOW THAT THE WALL IS COMING.

AND ONCE WE HAVE ALL OF THE DETAILS THAT WE THAT WE THAT WE NEED, THEY THEY THEY WILL BE ABLE TO RECEIVE THAT AND SEE THAT WALL COME TO FRUITION.

I ALSO HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF WORKING AGAIN WITH ANOTHER STATE REPRESENTATIVE TO PROVIDE VACCINATIONS THIS LAST THIS PAST SUNDAY.

THAT WAS A GREAT SUCCESS.

WE WERE ABLE TO PROVIDE VACCINES TO A SLEW OF TAMANAC RESIDENTS, ALTHOUGH SOME PEOPLE WERE TURNED AWAY BECAUSE THEY RUN OUT O VACCINES.

BUT, YOU KNOW, MY OFFICE FINDS JOY AND PLEASURE IN TRYING TO FIND VACCINATION OPPORTUNITIES FOR OTHER COMMUNITIES.

SO WE WERE ABLE TO PROVIDE VACCINES TO A LOT OF TIME RESIDENTS AND THEY WERE EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY HAPPY ABOUT THAT.

THAT IS ALL THAT I HAVE FOR TONIGHT.

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO REACH ME, THEY CAN GET NINE FIVE FOUR TWO SEVEN FIVE THREE EIGHT FIVE ZERO FOR ANYTHING PERSONAL OR TO MY OFFICE, NINE FOR FIVE MINUTES BEFORE SIX FOUR SIX THREE.

AND MY FACEBOOK ADDRESS AGAIN IS FACEBOOK DOT COM COMMISSIONER, MARYLAND, BALTIMORE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER GARLAND.

GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

GOOD TO SEE EVERYONE JUST TO REPORT SOME OF MY ACTIVITIES AND MY CONTROL OF

[3.b. Commissioner Gelin]

THIS OR YOU CONTROLLING THIS, JAMES COULD DO IT EITHER WAY.

IF YOU WANT TO LET ME KNOW WHEN THEY'VE ASKED THAT, I'LL BE HAPPY TO DO THAT FOR YOU.

I'M SURE YOU CAN ADVANCE OR YOU CAN HEAR I MAKE THE REQUEST, BUT THERE YOU GO.

ALL RIGHT.

HERE WE GO.

MS. NOT QUITE WORKING, BUT YOU CAN IMAGINE I DON'T.

IT'S NOT OK.

YES, LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS I ATTENDED THE KIWANIS CLUB MEETING, AS WELL AS MY

[00:15:02]

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT LIAISON.

DEIDRE ROGERS HAD A MEETING WITH A GROUP CALLED LEVEL UPCYCLING AS WE PLANNING OUR BIKE EVENT FOR MAY 22ND.

ALSO MET WITH DEPUTY MARIJAN TO DISCUSS THE BESSO BIKE RODEO, THE BIKE PLANNING EVENT WHERE WE'LL NEED SOME SUPPORT, PARTNERSHIP AND COOPERATION WITH VSO, AND ALSO A DISCUSSION ABOUT THE BREEDING EVENT COMING UP LATER THIS MONTH.

ATTENDING THE BROWARD COUNTY BLACK ELECTED OFFICIALS MEETING ON THE 6TH DID A NICE VIDEO FILMING WITH MY BLACK HISTORY MONTH MESSAG WITH CONNECT THE CAR.

SO THAT'S OUT OF MY SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES.

I DO NEED TO ADD IT TO NEXT DOOR.

AND THEN EARLIER TODAY, I ATTENDED THE NORTHWEST COUNCIL OF ELECTED OFFICIALS MEETING WITH JOE SCOTT, THE BROWARD.

AND SO WE HAVE THE GUEST SPEAKER NEXT LINE.

SO JUST AN IMAGE OF THE EVENT EARLIER TODAY WITH SOME OF THE OTHER ELECTED OFFICIALS AND I GUESS THE NORTHWEST AREA IS WHAT THEY'RE CALLING IT, NEXT FLIGHT.

EARLIER THIS YEAR, I DID, OR I GUESS LAST MONTH, I INTRODUCED A RESOLUTION TO CONDEMN THE ACTIONS OF PRESIDENT TRUMP.

IN CONTRAST, ANOTHER CITY IN FLORIDA FOR US, CITY IN POLK COUNTY, THEY DECLARED THE FIRST WEEK OF FEBRUARY, DONALD TRUMP WEEK, SO LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIALS CAN DO THINGS AND PASS RESOLUTIONS.

AND, YOU KNOW, IT CAN BE LOOKED UPON AS POLITICAL AND NOT.

BUT WE DO HAVE THE ACTIONS.

AND WHEN IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO, WE SHOULD DO THE RIGHT THING.

AND I THOUGHT IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO CONDEMN THE ACTIONS OF PRESIDENT TRUMP NEXT, LIKE THE VACCINE.

UNFORTUNATELY, THE THE NOT THE VACCINE.

THE CORONAVIRUS IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE HERE TO STAY, ACCORDING TO THE PFIZER CEO AND ARTICLE IN BLOOMBERG MAGAZINE.

NEXT, LIKE THE ONLY DISEASE THAT HAS EVER BEEN ERADICATED IS SMALLPOX.

THAT'S IN THE LAST PARAGRAPH.

SO, YOU KNOW, WE DON'T REALLY KNOW HOW WE'RE GOING TO LIVE WITH THIS VACCINE AS THE YEARS GO BY.

I'M SORRY, THE CORONAVIRUS WITH THESE NEW STRAINS COMING ABOUT AND A VACCINE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO IMPACT THE NEW STRAINS WE DO.

WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO ADAPT TO THIS NEW LIFESTYLE, WHATEVER IT ENDS UP BEING.

SO JUST A HEADS UP ON THAT NEXT LINE.

YOU KNOW, I DON'T THINK OUR COUNTRY IS GETTING ANY SAFER, JUST IN JANUARY ALONE, TWO MORE TWO MILLION MORE GUNS WERE PURCHASED NATIONWIDE AND FLORIDA BEING A RIGHT TO CARRY STATE.

I'M SURE A LOT OF THOSE NUMBERS WERE HERE IN FLORIDA.

SO, YOU KNOW, IF YOU BELIEVE IN PUBLIC SAFETY, THIS MAY NOT BE A GOOD IDEA.

IT ALSO PUTS POLICE OFFICERS ON HIGHER ALERT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO ASSUME THAT, YOU KNOW, WHEN THEY'RE GOING INTO A TOUGH SITUATION, IT'S VERY LIKELY THAT SOMEONE IS GOING TO BE ARMED.

WE SAW THAT IN SUNRISE JUST A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO WHERE UNFORTUNATELY TWO FBI AGENTS WERE KILLED AND FORGOT TO ADD IT TO MY REPORT.

BUT ON SATURDAY, I WASN'T REALLY DOING ANYTHING.

AND I GOT THE BREAKING NEWS ON MY PHONE.

THE SUN-SENTINEL WAS DOING THE FUNERAL CEREMONY FOR THE YOUNG LADY WHO WAS KILLED AND THE FBI DIRECTOR, CHRISTOPHER WRAY, WAS IN TOWN FOR THAT.

AND ONE THING THAT WAS AMAZING ABOUT THE LADY WHO WAS KILLED, SHE WAS ACTUALLY ABLE TO DO PULL UPS WITH TWENTY FIVE POUND WEIGHTS O TOP OF HER BODY.

SO I MADE A LOT OF PLEASANT THINGS TO SAY ABOUT HER AND JUST SEND OUR CONDOLENCES TO HER AND THE GENTLEMEN WHO WERE BOTH KILLED.

AND THEY BOTH HAD CHILDREN, BOTH HAD SPOUSES.

AND IT'S A VERY SAD SITUATION NEXT LINE.

SO AS ELECTED OFFICIALS, WE HAVE TO TACKLE TOUGH SITUATIONS AND RESOLVE THOSE PROBLEMS AND COME UP WITH CREATIVE SOLUTIONS IN DENVER.

INSTEAD OF SENDING POLICE OFFICERS OUT TO HANDLE MENTAL HEALTH CASES, THEY CAME UP WITH A GROUP OR SOMETHING CALLED A STAR PROGRAM, WHERE INSTEAD OF HAVING POLICE OFFICERS RESPOND TO SUBSTANCE ABUSE ISSUES, MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, THEY SEND OUT MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND THEY'VE HAD 748 CALLS AND REQUIRE NO POLICE OFFICERS AND NO ARRESTS.

SO WE HAVE TO THINK BIG AND THINK CREATIVE IN ORDER TO SOLVE PROBLEMS THAT IMPACT OUR COMMUNITY NEXT TIME.

JUST MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THAT, SO IT'S A SUPPORT TEAM ASSISTANCE RESPONSE PROGRAM, ITS CALLS ARE HANDLED BY TWO PEOPLE, A MEDIC AND A CLINICIAN.

THE HOURS ARE FROM 10:00 A.M.

AND 6:00 P.M.

AND I KNOW A LOT OF DANGER PROBABLY HAPPENS AT NIGHT.

SO HOPEFULLY THEY EXPAND THAT PROGRAM, BUT IT DOESN'T ELIMINATE POLICE.

THE PROGRAM WAS FORMED BY A COALITION OF POLICE, PARAMEDICS ON ONE AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS.

THIS IS THE KIND OF BIG THINKING THAT WE NEED TO BE DOING IN BROWARD COUNTY.

NEXT LINE.

AND ALSO, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE GET AFRAID OF THE TERM DEFUND THE POLICE.

ALL IT MEANS IS REALLOCATING RESOURCES AND THE CITY OF AUSTIN DID JUST THAT.

[00:20:05]

IT TOOK SOME RESOURCES FROM THE POLICE BUDGET AND USE IT TO BUY A HOTEL AND THEY'RE GOING TO HOUSE AND TRAIN AND REHABILITATE SOME HOMELESS PEOPLE.

SO I HEAR TAMARACK RESIDENTS ALL THE TIME AND A LITTLE BROWARD COUNTY COMPLAINING ABOUT HOMELESSNESS.

WELL, WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT IF WE'RE GOING TO RESOLVE THAT PROBLEM.

LOOKS LIKE SAME IN SAN FRANCISCO OVER TWO YEARS.

THEY ARE GOING TO TAKE ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS FROM THE POLICE AND SHERIFF'S OFFICE DEPARTMENT AND USE THAT TO FUND POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY, MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES, HOMELESS CRISIS, ALL THESE THINGS THAT IMPACT ALL OF US IN OUR COMMUNITY.

AND WHAT THE MAYOR SAY.

IT'S NOT FAIR TO ASK OUR POLICE OFFICERS TO DO THE WORK OF MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, AND IT'S NOT EFFECTIVE FOR THOSE IN CRISIS.

OFFICERS ARE NOT TRAINED TO HANDLE MENTAL HEALTH CASES, EVEN THOUGH THEY'RE DOING SOME OF THAT NOW.

IT'S BETTER TO HAVE THOSE EXPERTS WHO ARE ON THOSE FIELDS TO DO THAT WORK.

NEXT SLIDE.

AND THEN IT'S BLACK HISTORY MONTH, AND SO I JUST WANT TO TAKE TWO MINUTES AND RECOGNIZE BLACK HISTORY MONTH, SO IF YOU'RE JUST CLICK ON THAT LINK ON THE BOTTOM, JAMES, THAT YOUTUBE LINK ON THE BOTTOM, AND WE CAN ENJOY TWO MINUTES OF HISTORY.

FROM MY FIVE MINUTES.

I DON'T THINK MOST OF US KNOW OUR COUNTRY FOUGHT A CIVIL WAR IN THE 60S, BUT LESS IS KNOWN ABOUT WHAT CAME AFTERWARDS, THE CHAOTIC, EXHILARATING AND ULTIMATELY DEVASTATING PERIOD KNOWN AS RECONSTRUCTION.

IT WAS A MOMENT OF PROFOUND CHANGE WITH PROMISES OF CITIZENSHIP AND EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.

ONE OF THE GREATEST ACHIEVEMENTS OF RECONSTRUCTION WAS GRANTING BLACK MEN THE RIGHT TO VOTE.

IN 1867 ALONE, OVER 80 PERCENT OF ALL THE BLACK MEN IN THE FORMER CONFEDERATE STATES REGISTERED TO VOTE.

THREE YEARS LATER, HIRAM REVELS WAS ELECTED THE FIRST BLACK MAN TO SERVE IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE, AND JOSEPH RAINEY BECAME TH FIRST BLACK UNITED STATES CONGRESSMAN.

THEIR ELECTION PAVED THE WAY FOR MORE THAN 2000 BLACK OFFICEHOLDERS WHO SERVED AT EVERY LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT DURING RECONSTRUCTION.

THERE ARE NOT MANY MOMENTS IN RECORDED HUMAN HISTORY WHERE A GROUP THAT WAS SO SUBORDINATED WOULD, WITHIN THE SPACE OF A DECADE, ACTUALLY BE INTEGRATED INTO THE HIGHEST ECHELONS OF POLITICAL SOCIETY.

BUT THE MOMENTUM WOULDN'T LAST.

BLACK MEN'S ACCESS TO THE BALLOT BOX, ALONG WITH OTHER KEY RIGHTS GAINED DURING RECONSTRUCTION, WERE ROLLED BACK SYSTEMATICALLY THROUGHOUT THE SOUTH IN 1875, NEAR THE END OF RECONSTRUCTION.

THE 44TH CONGRESS INCLUDED SEVEN BLACK HOUSE MEMBERS AND THE UNITED STATES SENATE BY NINETEEN HUNDRED, ONLY ONE REMAINING CONGRESSMAN GEORGE HENRY WHITE OF NORTH CAROLINA AT THE TIME, GEORGE H.

WHITE LEAVES OFFICE IN 1991.

HE LITERALLY TURNS THE LIGHT OFF ON NATIONAL BLACK POLITICAL LEADERSHIP.

NO ONE WILL COME BEHIND HIM FOR AN ENTIRE GENERATION.

ONE OF THE CRUEL IRONIES OF RECONSTRUCTION IS THAT BLACK PEOPLE COULD CLAIM CERTAIN RIGHTS IN THE 18TH 70S THAT THEY WOULD HAVE T FIGHT TO RECLAIM IN THE 1960S, A SOBERING REMINDER THAT ACHIEVEMENTS THOUGHT PERMANENT CAN BE OVERTURNED AND RIGHTS CAN NEVER BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED.

AND THAT CONCLUDES MY REPORT.

SO THAT'S A GREAT YOUTUBE VIDEO CALLED BLACK HISTORY IN TOO MANY MINUTES ON YOUTUBE.

IT'S BY HENRY LOUIS GATES, WHO'S A HARVARD PROFESSOR.

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THAT'S MARVELOUS.

GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, MADAM.

AT THIS TIME, I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO REPORT AND I USE MY TIME.

BUT I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST AT SOME POINT AFTER THE CITY ATTORNEY AND CITY MANAGER IS TO REPORT AND AFTER THAT PUBLIC PARTICIPATION IN A TIME OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE.

SO NOTED, THANK YOU.

[3.d. Commissioner Placko]

BLAGGER.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, JAMES.

DO YOU HAVE THE SLIDE TO PUT UP FOR ME? OH, THANK YOU.

DURING THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS, I HAVE SPENT PRETTY MUCH ALL MY TIME ON THE PHONE AND EMAILS, PEOPLE WANTING TO KNOW WHERE CAN I GET A VACCINATION?

[00:25:02]

SO THIS IS SOME USEFUL INFORMATION.

I HAVE BLASTED IT OUT, BUT I THOUGHT MAYBE IF WE PUT IT UP ON THE SCREEN, IF YOU CAN GO TO THE NEXT ONE OF WHERE THE NEW LOCATIONS ARE NOW STARTING FRIDAY AT WAL-MART LOCATIONS, THESE ARE THE LOCATIONS.

THERE IS A PHONE NUMBER THAT WILL COME UP.

IT DOES TAKE SOME PATIENCE GETTING THE CALL THROUGH, BUT THE VACCINATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE.

UNFORTUNATELY, THEY WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT PUBLIX OR WINN-DIXIE LOCATIONS IN BROWARD COUNTY.

SO THAT WAS A DECISION THAT WAS MADE BECAUSE THEY ASSUMED WE HAD ENOUGH LOCATIONS.

IF WE GO TO THIS THIS YOU'RE LOOKING AT, THERE ARE CONTINUING VACCINATIONS LOCATED AT THESE LOCATIONS.

YOU HAVE TO BE TENACIOUS IN CALLING FOR YOUR PHONE WITH YOUR PHONE CALL TO GET AN APPOINTMENT.

BUT I WILL TELL YOU, PEOPLE ARE GETTING THROUGH.

PEOPLE ARE GETTING APPOINTMENTS AND PEOPLE ARE GETTING VACCINATIONS.

SO PLEASE BE A LITTLE PATIENT.

THEY ARE COMING THROUGH NOW.

WE WILL SEE THROUGH THE COMING WEEKS MORE AND MORE VACCINATIONS COMING THROUGH.

SO STAY CALM.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO HELP ANY WAY WE CAN.

BUT I THOUGHT MAYBE IF WE PUT THIS UP AND YOU DIDN'T GET THE BLAST I SENT OUT, YOU WOULD SEE THIS.

BUT CONTINUE TO CALL.

I'LL BE HAPPY TO HELP IN ANY WAY I CAN.

EVERYONE, PLEASE STAY SAFE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU.

[3.e. Mayor Gomez]

SO IT'S BEEN A VERY BUSY COUPLE OF WEEKS, DON.

THANK YOU FOR THE VIDEO AND YOUR CITY STAFF.

THANK YOU FOR THE EVENTS THAT WE ARE PUTTING ON AND LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DAY FOR LONG ON SATURDAY, WHICH I KNOW OUR CITY MANAGER WIL TELL US MORE WHAT I HAD THE PLEASURE OF ATTENDING THE LA LIGA CITIES.

CONFERENCE WITH OUR DIVISION OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT DIRECTOR, MIKE JARED MOSCOWITZ, TO WHERE HE ACTUALLY GAVE US A WHOLE HISTORY OF THAT SINCE YOU STARTED IT IN TWENTY NINETEEN.

SO THAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE CITY AND THE STATE AND RESOURCES AND FEMA REIMBURSING THE CITIES FOR ITEMS. BUT OF COURSE, THE BIGGEST PART OF THE CONVERSATION WAS DEALING WITH THE VACCINES AND HOW MUCH WAS PROMISED TO OUR STATE, HOW MUCH IS NOT YET COMING IN AND THE COORDINATION EFFORTS OF IT.

IT'S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HE SAID THAT SURPRISED ME WAS THEY GET A PHONE CALL ON TUESDAY LETTING THEM KNOW THE ALLOTMENT THAT WILL BE RECEIVED IN THE STATE FOR THE FOLLOWING MONDAY.

SO THEY HAVE LESS THAN A WEEK TO PREPARE AND WHERE THE ALLOCATIONS ARE GOING.

AND THEY ARE WORKING VERY HARD TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE GOING INTO SOME OF OUR RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS, CHURCHES THAT ARE LOWER INCOME, TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS EDUCATION OUT THERE TO HELP PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THE VACCINE.

THERE IS A FEAR BY MANY ABOUT THE VACCINE AND WHETHER OR NOT THEY SHOULD RECEIVE IT.

SO THERE'S A BIG EDUCATIONAL COMPONENT GOING OUT THERE AS WELL.

AND YES, WE DO HAVE TIMES WHEN SOME OF THE THESE FACILITIES, WHICH WE ALL KNOW BY NOW, ARE SELECTED BY THE STATE RUN OUT OR DO NOT HAVE OR ARE THERE FOR TWO WEEKS AND THEN THEY GET MOVED FOR ANOTHER TWO WEEKS.

AND SO IT IS A LITTLE BIT DISTRESSING ON SOME OF OUR RESIDENTS, BUT IT HAS NOT YET BEEN A YEAR.

AND WE JUST NEED TO KEEP POSITIVE AND PATIENT THAT IT IS COMING.

AND YES, WHEN IT COMES TO THE WAL-MART, WE DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING ON THE NORTH WEST SIDE OF THE STATE OF THE COUNTY THAT IS BEING DISCUSSED.

A COUPLE OF THE MAYORS AND I HAVE ALREADY MET TO DISCUSS THAT WITH WAL-MART AND SEE WHAT IS GOING TO BE DONE TO BRING THAT THROUGH TO OUR SIDE OF BROWARD AND THE BROWARD LEAGUE OF CITIES.

OR DIRECTORS MEETING, AND ONE OF THE MAIN TOPICS WAS THE.

HOUSE BILL 219, WHICH PREEMPTS THE REGULATION OF VACATION RENTALS TO THE STATES, BASICALLY TAKING AWAY ALL OF WHAT WE'VE BEEN WORKING SO HARD FOR AND WHAT WE HAVE NEGOTIATED AND THE RIGHTS THAT THE CITIES HAVE PUT IN, THE ITEMS THE CITY HAS PUT IN PLACE WILL SHOW THAT.

I DID SEND OVER TO THE REGULATORY COMMITTEE THIS MORNING ON EMAIL SAYING TO OPPOSE HOUSE BILL 219, WHICH PREVENTS THIS REGULATION SHARING, THAT THE VACATION RENTAL HOMES IN ALL NEIGHBORHOODS, NOT JUST THOSE LUXURY HOMES ON THE WATER OR GOLF COURSES, THESE SHORT TERM RENTALS ARE WREAKING HAVOC IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, BRINGING PROPERTY VALUES DOWN, IN MANY CASES, FORCING RESIDENTS TO MOVE JUST TO ESCAPE INCONSIDERATE PEOPLE, NOISE, GARBAGE AND THE TRANSIENT NATURE OF THEIR NEIGHBOR'S BUSINESS DECISION IN A RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY.

AND ASKED THE HOUSE SUBCOMMITTEE TO KNOW THAT ALL VOTERS THAT LIVE AND INVEST DEEPLY IN THE CITIES MAKE UP THE SAME STATE THA THEY REPRESENT AS WELL, AND TO STOP TRYING TO TAKE AWAY OUR HOME POWER.

SO I'M WAITING TO FIND OUT THE STATUS OF THAT.

I'M NOT SURE IF OUR.

WHERE HOW THE VOTE WENT TODAY, I DO NOT HAVE THAT INFORMATION.

[00:30:02]

I DON'T HAVE THE INFORMATION, BUT I'LL SHOW YOU.

OK, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I APPRECIATE I WAS NOT ABLE TO DO THAT BEFORE THE MEETING.

I DID HAVE THE PLEASURE OF GOING TO FLORIDA MEDICAL CENTER TODAY WHERE THEY HAD A RIBBON CUTTING FOR THAT TELEHEALTH E.R., WHICH IS USING NEW TECHNOLOGY TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A FULL TIME DOCTOR OR NURSE NURSE AT TH HOSPITAL RECEIVING CALLS TO DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT SOMEBODY SHOULD BE COMING IN AND CALLING AN AMBULANCE AND COMING INTO THE HOSPITAL.

OR THEY SHOULD JUST RECEIVE MEDICAL CARE FROM THEIR DOCTOR OUTSIDE THE HOSPITAL IN THE NEXT DAY OR SO.

THIS WILL BE SOMETHING THAT WILL BE VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT TAKING CARE OF THEIR HEALTH BECAUS THEY'RE AFRAID OF COVID.

THEY'RE AFRAID IF THEY GO TO THE HOSPITAL THAT SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN.

OUR HOSPITALS WOULD THANKFULLY ARE DOING WELL.

OF COURSE, WE DO HAVE A SHORTAGE OF NURSES, AND SO WE MUST MAKE SURE TO THANK OUR FRONT LINE WARRIORS FOR ALL THAT THEY ARE DOING.

IT'S STILL VERY TIRING OVER THERE, BUT WE DO HAVE ENOUGH BEDS.

WE DO HAVE ENOUGH TREATMENT.

AND THE NUMBERS RECOVERED, THANKFULLY, ARE GOING DOWN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN WATCHING THE TRENDS ATTENDED THE BROWARD COUNTY AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

THE FEDERAL HOUSING COMMITTEE MEETING THIS PAST MONDAY, IT'S WE HAVE QUARTERLY MEETINGS AND WE WILL BE STARTING AGAIN IN MAY WITH MORE DETAILS.

WE HAVE BEEN TAKEN TO THE COUNTY FOR THEIR REVIEW AND APPROVAL IN DECEMBER.

LET'S SEE.

I KNOW.

STILL DOING OUR FOOD DRIVE, SO PLEASE, IF YOU NEED ANY ASSISTANCE, OUR FOOD DRIVES ARE GOING ON EVERY SATURDAY AT THE KOREAN UNITED METHODIST CHURCH STARTING AT 8:00 A.M.

AND WE DO HAVE WE HAD CHRISTIAN LIFE CENTER THIS MORNING.

WE WILL HAVE CHRISTIAN LIFE CENTER AT NINE A.M.

NEXT WEDNESDAY.

AND THEN WE WILL BE AT COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN ON MONDAY, TWENTY FOR THE TWENTY FIRST DAY.

AND THEN I WOULD LIKE TO A NOTICE OF A HUNDRED YEAR YOUNG INDIVIDUAL IN OUR CITY TURNING A HUNDRED YEARS YOUNG TOMORROW AND ADDING THAT ARMY MAN AND HIS BIRTHDAY IS TOMORROW AND THERE WILL BE A.

VERY QUICKLY, A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION FOR HIM OUTSIDE AND HIS COMMUNITY AND I WILL BE SENDING AN INVITATION TO THE COMMISSION AFTER THE MEETING.

SO YOU HAVE A FEW MINUTES TO JOIN TOMORROW TO SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

I'M SURE HE WOULD APPRECIATE IT.

AND AT THIS TIME, I WILL TURN TO THE INTERIM CITY ATTORNEY FOR HIS REPORT.

[4. CITY ATTORNEY REPORT]

THANK YOU.

BUT I DON'T ONLY HAVE ONE STARTING POINT, WHICH YOU GUYS WERE GIVING A STATUS REPORT EARLIER IN THE WEEK THAT WAS NOT A HOTEL CASE.

THE APPELLATE COURT HAS DIRECTED THE CITY TO FILE RESPONSE OR REPLY BRIEF NO LATER THAN MARCH 10TH, TWO THOUSAND TWENTY ONE.

AND THAT'S ON YOUR STATUS REPORT? I HAVE.

THANK YOU, CITY MANAGER.

[5. CITY MANAGER REPORT]

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR, I HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS FOR YOU, MADAM MAYOR, AND FOR THE COMMISSIONER THIS EVENING.

WE RECENTLY RECEIVED THE RESULTS OF OUR 20 20 EMPLOYEE SURVEY.

AND I'M PLEASED TO SHARE WITH YOU THAT A RECORD NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES PARTICIPATED IN THE SURVEY.

THREE HUNDRED AND ONE EMPLOYEES OUT OF A POSSIBLE FOUR HUNDRED AND ONE EMPLOYEES SURVEY COMPLETED THE SURVEY.

IN FACT, ETSI AND CHRIS HAYTHEM, THE GENTLEMAN THAT YOU'VE HEARD FROM IN THE PAST, WHO CONDUCTED THE SURVEY FOR US, TOLD US THE TAMARAC LEVEL OF EMPLOYEE PARTICIPATION IS THE HIGHEST THAT THEY'VE EVER SEEN FOR AN EMPLOYEE SURVEY THAT THEY HAVE ADMINISTERED.

THE MAJOR FINDING OUT OF THE SURVEY IS THAT NINE OUT OF 10 EMPLOYEES RATE THE CITY OF TAMARAC AS A GOOD EMPLOYER.

SO I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL THE EMPLOYEES WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE EMPLOYEE SURVEY AND SAY THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR EMPLOYEES FOR CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVING OUR STRATEGIC GOAL NUMBER SIX BY MAKING TAMARAC A DYNAMI WORKPLACE.

I'M HAPPY TO REPORT THAT THE CITY OF TAMARAC.

RANKED NUMBER ONE OUT OF THE 31 CITIES IN BROWARD COUNTY FOR EMPLOYEES GIVING THIS YEAR AGO.

IN TOTAL THIS YEAR, OUR EMPLOYEES RAISED JUST UNDER TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS, WHICH FAR EXCEEDED THEIR ORIGINAL GOAL.

SO I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO THE COMMITTEE FOR ALL THE HARD WORK THAT THEY DID.

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, THANK YOU TO OUR EMPLOYEES FOR ALL OF THEIR GENEROUS DONATIONS TO THE UNITED WAY CAMPAIGN THIS YEAR, CERTAINLY IN HONOR OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH.

THE CITY WILL BE OFFERING A NUMBER OF PROGRAMS AND EVENTS, INCLUDING THE STORY WALK.

[Additional Item (Part 1 of 2)]

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR.

AND YES, I BOUGHT SOME TICKETS FOR THE DROP BALL, SO I'M HOPING TO WIN THIS HERE.

I DIDN'T WIN IN TWENTY NINETEEN AND WE DIDN'T DO IT LAST YEAR, SO WE'LL SEE HOW THAT GOES.

BUT I WANT TO TAKE TIME TO THANK YOU FOR THE FLOOR.

THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT APPLIES TO THE CURRENT PROPOSED FUTURE LANDMARK CHANGE REGARDING THE WOODLANDS COUNTRY CLUB THAT IS SCHEDULED TO BE

[00:40:02]

CONSIDERED FOR A SECOND TIME BY THE PARK COUNTY PLANNING COUNCIL LATER THIS MONTH.

APPARENTLY THE REASON THIS ITEM IS BACK BEFORE THE COUNTY PLANNING COUNCIL IS BECAUSE THE CITY AND THE COUNTY STAFF FAILED TO PROPERLY EVALUATE THE TRAFFIC IMPACTS OF THE PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION OF FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY PLUS OR FOUR HUNDRED PLUS NEW HOMES IN COUNTRY CLUB NEIGHBORHOOD WILL HAVE ON THE TRAFFIC IN THE CITY, PRIMARILY ON THE COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD ROCK ISLAND.

IT TOOK THE INTERVENTION OF THE STATE EFFORT FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO POINT OUT THAT COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD IT CURRENTLY OPERATES AT A LEVEL OF SERVICE F AND ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC GENERATED BY THE PROPOSED NEW HOMES WILL ONLY WORSEN THAT LEVEL OF SERVICE.

AS I UNDERSTAND THE F THOUGHTS COMMENTS AS CURRENTLY PROPOSED, A WOMAN'S COUNTRY CLUB PROJECT IS NOT CONSISTENT WITH THE CITY'S COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.

SO THE CITY'S COMMISSION SHARES COMMENTS AND OBSERVATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN VOICED REGARDING TRAFFIC AND IDENTIFIED BY EFFORTS.

AND THEREFORE, UNTIL THE ISSUES ARE ADDRESSED BY THE CITY, AS IS REQUIRED BY A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN, THE CITY COMMISSION, THE CITY REPRESENTATIVES REFRAIN FROM VOICING AND SUPPORTING THE APPLICATION UNTIL THE ISSUE ARE RESOLVED.

AGAIN, I REPEAT, THESE ARE ISSUES THAT WERE IDENTIFIED BY FDR AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THE TRAFFIC ON COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD AND ROCK ISLAND CAN BE IMPROVED TO ACCOMMODATE IF THERE'S NO TRAFFIC THAT WILL BE GENERATED BY THESE PROPOSED HOMES AS REQUIRED BY THE STATE LAW, THE CITY'S COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND OUR COUNTY COMPREHENSIVE PLAN BEFORE THIS PROPOSED FUTURE LAND USE MAP AMENDMENT IS APPROVED.

AT THIS MOMENT, I WOULD LIKE MY COLLEAGUES TO TAKE ACTION ON THIS BEING THAT WE ARE IN COMMISSION AND THAT ACTION, THE ACTION THAT I WANT TO TAKE IS TO INSTRUCT OUR CITY ATTORNEY TO DRAFT A RESOLUTION AND THEREFORE MAKE A MOTION TO DIRECT OUR CITY ATTORNEY ON THE FOLLOWING.

I'D LIKE TO GO AHEAD AND MAKE A MOTION TO WITHDRAW SUPPORT MOVING FORWARD WITH THIS FUTURE PROPOSED LAND USE MAP AMENDMENT UNTIL THE TRAFFIC ISSUES ARE IDENTIFIED BY F THAT HAVE BEEN PROPERLY ADDRESSED AND THE CITY AND TO DIRECT THE CITY COMMISSION AND STAFF FROM VOICING THEIR SUPPORT ON THE APPLICATION UNTIL THE ISSUE IS RESOLVED.

SO THAT'S MY MOTION.

AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

AND VICE MAYOR, AS WE TALKED ABOUT PUTTING THINGS ON THE AGENDA, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE HAD RECEIVED NOTICE OF PLENTY OF TIME IN ADVANCE, AND THIS IS AN ITEM THAT ACTUALLY IS NOT AS ONE HUNDRED PERCENT AS YOU HAVE PUT FORTH ON HERE.

AND I BELIEVE IT TAKES MORE OF A DISCUSSION THAN TO JUST PUT IT OUT THERE.

SO THIS IS SOMETHING THAT.

IN MY OPINION, SHOULD HAVE BEEN PUT ON THE AGENDA SIX DAYS AHEAD OF TIME FOR DISCUSSION BECAUSE IT'S NOT AS YOU PORTRAY IT AT THIS TIME.

CITY ATTORNEY, THANK YOU ABOUT THIS ISSUE, THIS LAND USE PLAN THAT WAS PRESENTED TO THE COMMISSION AS A QUASI JUDICIAL MATTER.

IN LIGHT OF THAT, WE NEED TO REFRAIN FROM MAKING ANY COMMENTS OR ANY DECISION RELATED TO THAT MATTER, BECAUSE IT WOULD BE CLEARL A POTENTIAL VIOLATION OF DUE PROCESS, MIGHT ALLOW THIS APPLICATION TO GO THROUGH PLAN WITH DUE PROCESS AND EVENTUALLY THIS PROCESS, THIS PLAN, IF IF APPROVED BY THE STATE OF FLORIDA, WILL COME BACK BEFORE THE COMMISSION AND AN APPLICANT WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT HIS CASE AND ANYONE WHO OBJECT TO THE APPLICATION CAN PRESENT THEIR CASE.

SO LIKE ANY QUASI JUDICIAL DECISION, THIS COMMISSION SORT OF LIKE AND JUST LIKE CAPACITY, ANY COMMENTS YOU MAKE, ANY MOTION THAT IS MADE OR APPROVED MAY BE HARMFUL TO THE CITIZENS IN THE FUTURE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THERE'S SIMPLY NO FURTHER CONVERSATION REGARDING THIS.

THIS IS NOT AN ITEM AGENDA ITEM FOR TODAY.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING US YOUR OPINION ON THE MATTER.

EXCUSE ME, MADAM MAYOR, THERE IS A MOTION ON THE TABLE.

AND AGAIN, I WANT TO REITERATE, THIS IS JUST TO DRAFT A RESOLUTION FROM THE CITY COMMISSION AND STAFF FROM VOICING SUPPORT OF THE APPLICATION UNTIL AFTER IT FINALIZES WITH THE COUNTY IF WE CAN MOVE FORWARD OR NOT.

SO THERE IS A MOTION ON THE TABLE.

[00:45:01]

NO, THAT ACTUALLY WAS NOT SECONDED IN OUR CITY ATTORNEY HAS DIRECTED US THAT THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE DONE AT THI TIME.

IT IS.

BUT IN DOING SO, I'M REFRAINING FROM SAYING WHAT THE ACTION IS BEFORE THE COUNTY TO NOT DELIBERATE THAT I'M SITTING HERE SAYING THERE'S NOT A SECOND, BUT THERE'S TWO HANDS RAISED BY THE MAYOR.

SO THEY HAVE COMMENTS THEY MAY HAVE VICE MAYOR, BUT IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT OUR CITY ATTORNEY IS PROVIDING US WITH LEGAL GUIDANCE REGARDING THIS MATTER.

AND.

IT IS AGAIN.

I WASN'T HERE WHEN THIS MATTER WAS APPROVED BY THE COMMISSION, BUT AGAIN, THIS IS A QUASI JUDICIAL MATTER.

IN LIGHT OF THAT, WE SHOULD REFRAIN FROM MAKING ANY COMMENT FOR OR AGAINST.

OBVIOUSLY, IT WILL MOST LIKELY COME THROUGH THE COMMISSION.

AND I WANT EVERY MEMBER OF THE COMMISSION HAVE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THE MATTER WITHOUT THE APPLICANT OBJECTING.

YOU CLAIMING IS BIASED OR HE WILL NOT HAVE A FAIR HEARING.

SO OBVIOUSLY SOME MEMBERS MAY HAVE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE INVOLVED IN A PRIOR POOL IF THEY WERE INVOLVED AND THEY VOTED NO.

I GUESS THEY CAN RELY ON THOSE COMMENTS THAT THEY MADE PREVIOUSLY AS AS AS THIS IS WHAT I SAID AS OTHERS READ IT.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, GOING FORWARD, I WILL DEFINITELY ADVISE THIS COMMISSION TO REFRAIN FROM SPEAKING ABOUT PUBLICLY SO THE MOTION AND WE'RE NOT VOTING WHETHER WE SUPPORT OR DON'T SUPPORT THE PROJECT, THAT THE MOTIO ON THE TABLE RIGHT NOW IS A MATTER OF VOICING OUR OPINIONS BEFORE ANYONE.

AND THAT'S THE MOTION TO TABLE FROM AND THAT'S THE RESOLUTION THAT I WOULD LIKE FOR THIS CITY TO TRY TO DRAFT SO AND SO THE ATTORNEY ON THE BASIS OF THAT, BECAUSE IT IS CLEAR AND EVERYBODY IS AWARE OF THIS, THAT I SERVE ON THE BROWARD COUNTY PLANNING COUNCIL AND THE MOTION THAT IS BEING REQUESTED WOULD HAVE RESTRICTIONS ON MY ABILITY TO DO WHAT I WAS APPOINTED BY THE COUNTY TO BOARD.

I WAS APPOINTED ON THE COUNTY TO SERVE ON, AND THAT IS KIND OF BACK DOORING IT BY HAVING SOME KIND OF RESTRICTIONS ON MY ABILITY TO DO MY JOB.

MAYOR GOMEZ, IN TERMS OF YOUR ROLE WITH THE BROWARD COUNTY PLANNING COUNCIL, OBVIOUSLY THEY HAVE THE PLANNING COUNCILS TO HAVE COUNTY WHERE YOU CAN VOTE ON THE MATTER OR NOT.

THAT ATTORNEY WILL GIVE YOU ADVICE BECAUSE OF YOUR ROLE HERE AS MAYOR OF CITY TIMELINE.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, WITH RESPECT TO A PRETTY CONSISTENT WITH QUASI JUDICIAL MATTERS, IS NOT LEGISLATIVE.

THIS WAS A QUASI JUDICIAL MATTER THAT CAME BEFORE THE COMMISSION.

AND ANY COMMENTS CAN BE HURTFUL TO THE CITY IF IT'S CONSTRUED FOR OR AGAINST, BECAUSE IT WILL DEFINITELY GIVE ANYONE EVIDENCE THAT THERE'S SOME DETERMINATION WITH RESPECT TO THE APPLICATION.

THE COMMISSION MUST SERVE IN THE JUDGE'S CAPACITY RULE BASED ON EVIDENCE PRESENTED AS EVIDENCE BY RESIDENTS.

IT WILL BE EVIDENCE BY EXPERT, BUT ALLOW THE PROCESS TO WORK ITSELF THROUGH THE PANEL DUE PROCESS.

ONE OF THE FIRST STEP, SECOND STEP, I CALL IT, IS BEFORE THE PLANNING BOARD.

AND THE PLANNING BOARD CAN OBVIOUSLY REJECT IT.

I'LL PROVE IT.

IT'S THE LAW DOES NOT.

I WANT TO MAKE IT CLEAR, YOU KNOW, AGAIN, THE LAW IS WITH RESPECT TO THIS.

AND THAT IS CLEAR.

IF A MEMBER OF THE COMMISSION TAKE THE LIBERTY TO SAY IT, PROBABLY MAKE HER THE CASE MORE THAN HELP THE CASE.

AND I JUST WANT TO MAKE THAT CLEAR.

I DO UNDERSTAND THAT.

BUT I THINK MY POINT HAS BEEN MISSED.

THE MOTION IS JUST SIMPLY TO DRAFT A RESOLUTION FOR THE CITY COMMISSION, OUR CITY COMMISSION AND STAFF AVOID THEM FROM VOICING SUPPORT OR ON THE APPLICATION UNTIL AFTER IT FIGURES IT OUT.

SO THAT I'M NOT DISAGREEING WITH CITY ATTORNEY.

I'M NOT DISAGREEING WITH YOU, MAYOR GOMEZ.

I'M SAYING IS I HAVE A MOTION ON THE TABLE AND WE STILL HAVE TWO COMMISSIONERS THAT HAVE HAD THEIR HAND RAISED AND HAVEN'T BEEN ABL TO SPEAK.

MAKE ME NOW.

OK, THE ATTORNEY.

OK, FIRST OF ALL, FOREMOST, OUR MAYOR.

MR. ANDERSON, I UNDERSTAND.

[00:50:02]

I USE MY TIME TOO MUCH.

THANK YOU.

SO, OK, FIRST OF ALL, I SECOND THE MOTION BECAUSE I WANT TO HEAR WHAT.

THE VICE MAYOR HAS TO SAY IN MORE DETAIL, I DON'T THINK THAT WE SHOULD BE IN AN ERA WHERE WE DO NOT SECOND MOTIONS.

I THINK THAT IF A ELECTED OFFICIAL HAS A MOTION OR SOMETHING THAT THEY FEEL STRONGLY TO TO BE ADDRESSED, THEY SHOULD ADDRESS THAT SPEAKS TO HAVING ACCESS TO THE AGENDA.

AND I BELIEVE THAT THE VICE MAYOR HAS ALL RIGHT TO THE AGENDA WHENEVER HE PLEASES.

THE PREVIOUS ATTORNEY HAD NO PROBLEM WITH THAT AS WELL.

AND SO I FEEL THAT HE HAS A RIGHT TO THE AGENDA.

SO AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME, MY HAND IS UP AND I WANT TO DISCUSS THIS, NOT AD NAUSEUM, BUT BUT AT LEAST ASK THE GOOD VICE MAYOR ON THE SUNSHINE WHAT IS DEAL IS SO WE CAN MOVE ON.

YOU KNOW, YOU YOU KNOW, GOING OVER AND OVER WITH THIS PROCESS COULD HAVE SOLVED EVERYTHING ALREADY.

SO THE MOTION IS SECOND.

BUT THANK YOU FOR SECONDING THE MOTION.

CITY ATTORNEY, DO YOU THINK IT WOULD BE BEST TO ACTUALLY HAVE THE CLARIFICATION OF WHAT? IS BEING PRESENTED BEFORE BROWARD COUNTY PLANNING COUNCIL THAT WE'RE BEING ASKED TO VOTE ON, THE PART OF THE PROBLEM IS, AS YOU'RE SAYING, IT'S A QUASI JUDICIAL AND WE RUN AFOUL OF HAVING.

A CONVERSATION REGARDING IT, RIGHT, BUT THE WAY IT IS BEING DESCRIBED IS NOT AS IT IS.

WITH RESPECT TO LET ME LET ME BE VERY RESPECTFUL, I WOULD LAY OUT THE DETAILS AND WHATEVER WAS PRESENTED TO THE COMMISSION, OBVIOUSLY THAT MAXIME CALLOWAY'S BEST WOULD SPEAK ABOUT IT.

BUT WITH RESPECT TO A POSITION THAT WAS TAKEN BY THE COMMISSION, ALSO STAFF, YOU KNOW, I DON'T HAVE PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF STAF RECOMMENDATION WAS POSITIVE AND THAT MAXINE CALLAWAY WOULD INDICATE THAT.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, IF IF STAFF AND THE COMMISSION MADE A DECISION OR POSITION MATTER AND IT HAS PROCEED TO THE NEXT LEVEL, MY RECOMMENDATION, BASED ON MY KNOWLEDGE OF THE LAW, IS TO REFRAIN FROM TALKING ABOUT THE MATTER, FROM DISCUSSING IT IN ANY WAY THAT MAY BE CONSTRUED AS A VIOLATION OF THE APPLICANT DUE PROCESS.

BUT THAT'S MY WITNESS.

AND I SAID SO.

BECAUSE IF THIS IS TO MOVE FORWARD, THOUGH, FOR A CONVERSATION, I REALLY THINK IT'S INCUMBENT ON MS. CALLOWAY TO ACTUALLY PRESENT AND SHARE THE ACTUAL MATTER THAT IS BEFORE THE COUNTY COMMISSION IF WE ARE BEING ASKED TO MAKE ANY KIND OF COMMENTS ON IT.

SO I JUST ASK YOU TO.

FLORSHEIM, PARDON? IS THIS STILL MY FLOOR TIME? FIRST ON THE FLOOR, YOU'LL HAVE THE FLOOR IN SECOND.

OK? I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I'M UNDERSTAND I'M BEING UNDERSTOOD.

IT'S NOT WE'RE NOT VOTING FOR OR AGAINST A PROJECT.

WE'RE DEALING WITH A THOUGHT SITUATION.

AND THAT'S WHAT I'M RAISING.

RIGHT.

MY COMMENTS ARE BASICALLY THE EXACT SITUATION THAT YOU ARE.

SHARING IS NOT AS IT IS BEING SHARED.

IT WAS BASED ON THE REPORT THAT WE RECEIVED MCNAMARA, THAT VICE VICE MAYOR.

THE WAY YOU FRAME THIS RESOLUTION, AGAIN, THIS IS THIS MATTERS NOT BEFORE THE COMMISSION.

IT WAS A QUASI JUDICIAL MATTER.

APPLICANT DOES NOT CARE.

THE APPLICANT CANNOT ADDRESS ANY ISSUE RELATING TO THE APPLICATION ON THIS FACE.

I CAN TELL YOU THAT'S A POTENTIAL DUE PROCESS VIOLATION.

ALLOW THIS PROCESS TO WORK ITSELF OUT, ALLOW IT TO GO THROUGH THE PLANNING PROCESS, AND EVENTUALLY THE STATE WILL HAVE A REVIEW.

OBVIOUSLY, THE REVIEW IS PENDING BEFORE THE BROWARD COUNTY PLANNING COMMISSION.

AND AND BECAUSE OF THAT, I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT WE DO NOT DISCUSS FOR OR AGAINST RESPECT TO WHERE THE STAFF CAN MAKE COMMENT.

WE'RE NOT DISCUSSING FOR OR AGAINST.

WE'RE NOT DISCUSSING FOR OR AGAINST.

I THINK I THINK YOU INDICATED THAT YOU WANT STAFF TO REFRAIN FROM MAKING ANY COMMENTS AT IN THE FUTURE LIKE THAT.

[00:55:04]

RIGHT UNTIL AFTER CLARIFIES WHAT WE HAVE ON HAND.

WHAT I'M SAYING TO YOU AGAIN, STAFF ALREADY HAS A REPORT THAT IS ALREADY PART OF THIS PROCESS.

AND SO THAT WE HAVE THAT THE POINT AND THAT'S THE PROBLEM THAT WE HAVE.

SO WHAT I'M REQUESTING IS JUST UNTIL THE TRAFFIC ISSUES ARE IDENTIFIED BY AFTER HAVING PROPERLY ADDRESSED BY THE CITY, WAIT FOR THE COMMISSION AND THE STAFF, YOU KNOW, PRETTY MUCH NOT VOICING THEIR SUPPORT ON THE APPLICATION UNTIL THESE ISSUES ARE RESOLVED.

THAT'S THAT'S THE MOTION.

THERE'S NOTHING COMPLICATED.

WE HAVE A SECOND.

I MEAN, COMMISSIONER GARLAND STILL HAS HIS HAND RAISED.

I DON'T KNOW WHY WE KEEP DISCUSSING THIS THING OVER AND OVER.

AND VICE MAYOR, I DON'T HAVE ANY KNOWLEDGE THAT ANYONE FROM THE CITY HAS BEEN SUBPOENAED TO TESTIFY BEFORE THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

I'VE BEEN REQUESTED MS. MAGIC CAN ANSWER THAT.

SO I DON'T HAVE ANY KNOWLEDGE OF THAT.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, YOU KNOW, IF THEY'VE NOT BEEN ASKED TO TESTIFY OR THEY HAVE NOT BEEN SUBPOENAED, MY UNDERSTANDING THEY WILL NO MAKE ANY COMMENT, BECAUSE RIGHT NOW IT'S BEFORE THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND TH COMMISSION WILL MAKE ITS DECISION BASED ON WHAT WAS APPROVED BY THE CITY COMMISSION.

SO MY MY CONCERN AGAIN, AN APPLICANT IS NOT HERE AND ONLY DEALING WITH QUASI JUDICIAL MATTER.

I WOULD NOT OPEN UP UNLESS THE APPLICANT IS HERE.

RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

CITY ATTORNEY.

WE'LL GOATSE HAS GONE UP AND DOWN, COMMISSIONER.

I THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE A QUESTION FOR THE CITY ATTORNEY OF THE MAYOR SITS ON THE PLANNING BOARD AND SO SHE WOULD BE SPEAKING.

BEFORE HE COMES BACK, SO IT'S A QUASI JUDICIAL HEARING FOR US, BUT AS A MEMBER OF THE PLANNING BOARD, SHE'S ALSO SPEAKING BEFORE IT COMES BACK TO US IN A QUASI JUDICIAL HEARING.

SO WHETHER OR NOT SHE SPEAKS FOR OR AGAINST THE PROJECT AT THE PLANNING BOARD LEVEL, I THINK IT IS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST FOR HER TO SPEAK AT THE PLANNING BOARD LEVEL, KNOWING THAT THE ISSUE IS GOING TO COME BACK TO US IN A QUASI JUDICIAL FORM.

SO THAT'S THE THAT'S THE FIRST POINT THAT THAT I THAT I SEE WITH THIS.

SO MY REQUEST TO YOU IS THAT YOU ISSUE AN OPINION AND ALSO FIND OUT FROM THE FLORIDA DIVISIONAL ETHICS COMMISSION ON ETHICS WHETHER OR NOT IT IS APPROPRIATE FOR A MEMBER OF THE CITY COMMISSION TO HAVE A TALK ABOUT THE PROJECT BEFORE IT COMES BACK TO US.

THE QUASI JUDICIAL HEARING THAT WOULD BE MY THAT WOULD BE MY FIRST REQUEST TO YOU.

AND THIS IS JUST THINKING OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD, BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY I STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND THE VICE MAYOR'S REQUEST.

I THINK THROUGH DISCUSSION I WILL UNDERSTAND IT AND KNOW HOW BEST TO MOVE FORWARD.

SO SO THAT'S THE FIRST THING THAT COMES TO MIND.

THE SECOND THING THAT COMES TO MIND IS WHETHER OR NOT WE SPEAK ON ALL OF THIS RIGHT NOW IN MY.

AND AT LEAST IN MY HEAD, OR AT LEAST TO MY KNOWLEDGE, I CAN AT ANY POINT.

SUPPORT OR SPEAK FOR OR AGAINST A PROJECT, UNDERSTANDING THAT IT'S GOING TO COME BACK TO US IN A QUASI JUDICIAL HEARING AND.

AT LEAST FOR ME, A RESOLUTION IS NOT GOING TO AFFECT HOW I WEIGH THE EVIDENCE WHEN THE THE APPLICANT BRINGS IT BRINGS BACK HIS APPLICATION TO US, BECAUSE IT WOULD BE ON THAT NIGHT THAT I WOULD MAKE MY DECISION BASED ON THE

[01:00:01]

EVIDENCE THAT THE THE APPLICANT AND ANY EXPERT EXPERTS WOULD BRING.

SO.

THIS WOULD HAVE NO BEARING ON MY DECISION, SO NOT.

UNDERSTANDING, UNDERSTANDING, IT'S A QUASI JUDICIAL HEARING THAT'S COMING UP, AT LEAST FOR ME, IT WOULD THIS WOULD HAVE NO BEARING ON THAT QUASI JUDICIAL PROCESS.

SO ANSWER THE FIRST QUESTION FIRST AND THEN YOU COULD ANSWER SUBJECT WITH RESPECT TO WHETHER THE MAN CAN VOTE ON THIS MATTER IF IT'S PRESENTED TO HER AS A MEMBER OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

I NEED TO CONDUCT FURTHER RESEARCH.

I DON'T WANT TO GIVE THAT ANSWER WITHOUT CONDUCTING FURTHER RESEARCH.

WITH RESPECT TO THE RULES OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND AND DISCUSSING WITH THE ATTORNEY, THE PLANNING COMMISSION STATES THE CAPTAIN OF.

BEFORE YOU GO TO THE SECOND SECOND QUESTION, HOW MANY MEMBERS ARE IN THE PLANNING COMMISSION BROETJE COMMISSION? I DON'T I DON'T KNOW.

OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD, OBVIOUSLY, SOME TIME IS USUALLY A MATTER.

YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW IF THE PROBLEM THERE, IF IT'S A PLEASURE TO ANSWER THAT, IS THERE IS TWO APPOINTEES FOR EVERY PERSON ON THE COUNTY COMMISSION.

SO THERE'S 18 THERE'S ONE ELECTED OFFICIAL AND THERE'S ONE I'M NOT ELECTED OFFICIAL THAT SERVES ON THE COMMISSION ON THE COUNCIL.

AND JUST TO ANSWER THE QUESTION, AND I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM WITH OUR OWN FUNDS DOING THE WORK, BUT BEFORE SERVING ON THAT WAS THE PERSON THAT GOT THE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERED, THANK YOU.

18 PEOPLE ARE SO TO JUST 19.

SO LET'S JUST SAY THAT NINE PEOPLE VOTES AGAINST ON THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND THEN TEN VOTES FOR AND THE MAYOR IS IS SEEN AS A TIE VOTE.

ISN'T SHE USING HER POSITION TO ADVANCE THE PROJECT TO TO THEN KICK IT TO THE COUNTY COMMISSION AND THEN BACK TO THE CITY COMMISSION? JUST OFF THE TOP OF LOOKING AT IT, IT JUST SEEMS LIKE, YOU KNOW, SHE HAS, YOU KNOW, MORE IN THIS THAN THAT THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

AND PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY HAVE LONG SAID THAT THE MAYOR IS DOING VITAL WORK FOR THE DEVELOPER AND SHE'S GOING TO GET MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM IT.

QUITE FRANKLY, I BELIEVE IT BECAUSE, I MEAN, SHE HAS THE KIND OF CHARACTER TO TAKE BRIBES.

AND THAT'S THAT'S JUST MY OPINION.

BUT, YOU KNOW, I CAN'T TELL FOR SURE HOW MANY PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY HAS PROVED THEY'VE SHOWN THE PROOF AND THAT SORT OF STUFF.

YOU KNOW, I CAN'T SPEAK TO THAT, BUT I CAN ONLY SPEAK TO THE MAYOR'S CHARACTER, UNDERSTANDING OF WHO SHE IS FROM THE FIVE YEARS THAT I'VE DEALT WITH HER.

AND SHE'S REALLY NOT A NICE PERSON.

SHE'S DISARMING.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, YOU KNOW, WE WE HAVE OUR MAYOR AND WE JUST HAVE TO MOVE ON TO THE STREETS.

SO GO AHEAD AND ANSWER THE SECOND QUESTION.

YEAH, THE SECOND QUESTION AGAIN, MR. BOLTON, LOOK, AS AN ELECTED OFFICIAL, YOU CAN YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO SAY WHATEVER YOU WANT TO SAY.

UNFORTUNATELY, A MAN IS MADE TO QUASI JUDICIAL DECISIONS.

COMMENTS THAT APPEAR TO VIOLATE ME VIOLATE PROCESS.

MY APPLICATION MAY BE USED AGAINST THE CITY OR AGAINST A DECISION TO BOLSTER THE CASE FOR THE APPLICANT.

AND THAT'S THE LAW.

IT'S NOT THE SAME AS THE LAW IS LIKE THE LAW WHERE WHEN COMMENTS ARE MADE, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE APPLICANT IS NOT HERE, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE DECISION HAS BEEN ALREADY MADE BY THE COMMISSION LINKED TO THE APPLICATION.

YOU HAVE TO ALLOW THAT PROCESS TO PROCEED, KNOW IT.

AND I CAN TELL YOU BY MAKING ANY COMMENTS DURING THIS PROCESS, BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY, LET'S SAY THE APPLICATION COME BACK BEFORE THE COMMISSION AND AND AND THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AND FILE AN APPEAL WITH THE STATE DOESN'T BECOME RIGHT UNTIL THE SECOND HEARING WHAT OUR APPLICANT OBJECT IN APPEAL.

[01:05:04]

THE DECISION, LET'S SAY FOR A HYPOTHETICAL THAT THE COMMISSION DECIDED WHATEVER REASON THAT THEY WOULD NOT APPROVE THE APPLICATION THE SECOND TIME AROUND.

NOW, THE ABACUS NOW HAS PLENTY OF EVIDENCE TO PLAY AN ADMINISTRATIVE HEARING BEFORE THE STATE.

THAT PROCESS, RIGHT.

WAS VIOLATED.

THAT COMMISSION DECISION WAS NOT BASED ON ONCE AGAIN.

YES, YOU CAN SAY WHATEVER YOU WANT TO SAY.

SEE, WITH AS YOUR LAWYER, I'M BEING CLEAR THAT COMMENTS AND AND ESPECIALLY WHEN THE APPLICANT IS NOT HERE, WHEN THE DECISION HA BEEN MADE, WILL BE CONSTRUED UNDER THE LAW AS A DUE PROCESS KNOWLEDGE.

SO I THINK I THINK I HAVE A FLAW.

I THINK MY EMOTIONS BEING REALLY FROM BEING TAKEN FROM A TO Z.

AGAIN, IT GOES BACK TO A STATE DEPARTMENT AFTER NOT HAVING AN ISSUE WITH A PARTICULAR PROJECT.

OK, THE MOTION IS JUST TO BASICALLY DIRECT THE CITY ATTORNEY, THE RIGHT TO CITY COMMISSION AND START FROM VOICING SUPPORT AND THE APPLICATION UNTIL THE ISSUES ARE RESOLVED.

THAT IS THE MOTION.

WE'RE NOT VOTING IN FAVOR OF THE PROJECT.

WE'RE NOT DISAPPROVING A PROJECT.

WE DON'T CARE ABOUT THE PROJECT.

ALL WE CARE ABOUT IS SAYING, HEY, PAUSE ON THIS, BECAUSE THERE'S THINGS THAT I THOUGHT STILL HAS IDENTIFIED AS BEING AN ISSUE.

AND MY MOTION IS JUST TO BASICALLY SAY.

REFRAIN FROM VOICING SUPPORT ON THE APPLICATION UNTIL THE ISSUES ARE RESOLVED, AND I REALLY WOULD LOVE TO HEAR WHAT COMMISSIONER GARLAND SAYS, BECAUSE WE KEEP WE'VE LET YOU DOWN AND THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO LEARN MORE.

SO THANK YOU.

I DID NOT ASK THE FLOOR WITH MY MOTION AND IT WAS SAID YOU HAD YOUR MOTION, YOUR MAJOR MOTION MADE YOUR POINT.

AND NOW WE'RE GOING THROUGH DISCUSSION BECAUSE THERE WAS A SECOND ON IT AND THERE'S DISCUSSION AND WE'RE GOING THROUGH THERE.

AND I AM GOING TO SAY A COMMENT ON YOUR THANK YOU TO COMMISSIONER VOLKMAN.

COMMISSIONER GARLAND, I'M SORRY, BUT I STILL HAVE THE FLOOR.

IT'S VILLA-LOBOS IN MOTION.

I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF ASKING QUESTIONS.

YOU MAY CONTINUE, OK? SO THIS IS A QUESTION FOR YOU, MADAM MAYOR.

DO YOU SEE SEE THIS AS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST THAT YOU ARE VOTING TWICE? ON THIS ISSUE, NO, I DO NOT CONSIDER IT.

CONSIDERING THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED PRIOR TO THE FIRST TIME THIS CAME BEFORE THE BROWARD COUNTY PLANNING COUNCIL, IT WAS A BY ATTORNEY AND SIGNED BY THE BROWARD COUNTY ATTORNEY AS WELL.

THE BROWARD COUNTY PLANNING COUNCIL'S FOCUS IS A LOT MORE LIMITED AND FOCUSED ON WHAT THE CITY'S FOCUS IS.

AND THERE'S A SPECIFIC QUESTION THAT IT IS BEING ASKED.

IT IS NOT AS WHAT IS BEING PRESENTED AND THEREFORE IS NARROW IN FOCUS.

SO, NO, I DO NOT FEEL THAT THERE'S A CONFLICT OF INTEREST.

I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THERE IS NO CONFLICT OF INTEREST.

AND THEN I'M GOING TO SAY ONE THING FURTHER.

ANY OTHER CHARACTER ASSASSINATIONS YOU WANT TO TRY TO DO? BACK IT UP, PROVE IT, BECAUSE A LOT OF WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS UNTRUE.

AND THIS HAS BEEN BROUGHT UP BEFORE VERY WELL THAT I AM NOT DOING ANY TYPE OF WORK FOR THE DEVELOPER.

I DON'T DO ANY TYPE OF WORK FOR ANYBODY HERE SO THAT ANYBODY WHO'S DOING ANY DEVELOPMENT WORK IN OUR CITY.

SO BACK IT UP OR YOU CONTINUE TO ASSASSINATE ME WITH YOUR LIES.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, COMMISSIONER? YES.

YOU KNOW, I'M NOT I'M NOT SAYING THAT YOU ARE TAKING BRIBES, MR. MAYOR.

I JUST I JUST I'M JUST SAYING THAT YOU HAVE THE PERSONALITY TO DO IT.

SO WHEN RESIDENTS OF THE CITY MAKE THOSE CLAIMS, I HAVE A PREROGATIVE TO BRING THOSE CLAIMS HERE AND TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THAT IS A THING IN THE COMMUNITY.

AND IN MY WHAT I SAID WAS, I BELIEVE THEM BECAUSE I KNOW THE TYPE OF PERSON THAT YOU ARE.

YOU'RE THE TYPE OF PERSON TO ATTACK ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA WITH YOUR THUGS.

YOU DO IT EVERY WEEK.

SO, YOU KNOW, IT'S IT'S IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS.

AND, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN YOU CAN LAUGH ALL YOU WANT.

BUT, YOU KNOW, AT THE END OF THE DAY, THESE ARE THINGS THAT YOUR CONSTITUENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT YOU.

THEY THINK THAT YOU ARE CORRUPT AND THEY THINK THAT YOU'RE A PERSON THAT DOES NOT HAVE THE CITY'S BEST INTERESTS AT HEART.

AND I WISH OUR CODE WAS WRITTEN IN A WAY WHERE WE COULD HAVE A CODE, A VOTE OF

[01:10:02]

NO CONFIDENCE IN YOU, BECAUSE REALLY AND TRULY, I'M NOT A VERY GOOD LEADER AND YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO RUN A MEETING.

AND JUST BEING RUDE, YOU'RE RIGHT.

YOU'RE RIGHT ON THE EDGE.

AND YOU'RE PROVING MY POINT RIGHT NOW.

YOU'RE NOT VERY GRACEFUL AND YOU'RE NOT A VERY GOOD QUEEN OF THIS MEETING, SO TO SPEAK.

SO I YIELD THE FLOOR RIGHT NOW.

THANK YOU SO MUCH GOING.

YEAH.

SO I WANT TO HEAR AGAIN FROM THE CITY ATTORNEY IN TERMS OF WHETHER OR NOT.

SO OBVIOUSLY, WE ALREADY HAVE A LAWSUIT BEFORE US, WHICH THE CITY ATTORNEY COVERED IN HIS REPORT, AND I JUST WOULD LIKE FOR THE CITY ATTORNEY TO CLARIFY.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A QUASI JUDICIAL HEARING AND WHY IT MAY BE DANGEROUS AND WHY HE'S RECOMMENDING THAT WE TAKE NO ACTION ON VICE MAYORS PROPOSED RESOLUTION, YOU KNOW, I AS SOMEONE WHO WHO WAS A NEW COMMISSIONER TWO YEARS AGO, I KNOW THERE ARE THINGS THAT I WANTED TO DO, BUT WE HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY WITHIN THE RULES OF THE GAME.

AND SO I DON'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING THAT'S GOING TO HARM US NOW.

AND I KNOW THAT, YOU KNOW, THIS ITEM WAS NOT ON THE AGENDA AND THE APPLICANT IS NOT OFFICIALLY HERE, BUT THE APPLICANT IS ON THE CALL.

SO I DON'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING THAT IS GOING TO BE HARMFUL TO THE CITY IN THE LONG RUN.

SO WE CANNOT MAKE A DECISION THAT'S GOING TO BE A FEEL GOOD TODAY DECISION ONLY TO HARM US SO.

IF YOU COULD JUST ANSWER THOSE QUESTIONS AND I HAVE A FOLLOW UP QUESTION, I YOU PLEASE CAN YOU HEAR ME, PLEASE? I'M YOU.

PLEASE.

THANK YOU, MR. GARLAND.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR QUESTION.

AS I INDICATED PREVIOUSLY IN A WRITTEN MEMORANDUM TO ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION WHEN THIS COMMISSION REVIEW.

SAME TYPE OF LAND USE APPLICATION, ZONING APPLICATION, YOU ARE SITTING BASICALLY AS A JUDGE, YOU REVEAL IN THE EVIDENCE THAT COME BEFORE YOU AND YOU MAKE A DECISION BASED ON THE EVIDENCE.

THEREFORE, YOU CANNOT ENGAGE IN, I CALL IT PRIOR COMMUNICATION ABOUT A MATTER AND GIVE ANYONE THE INFERENCE THAT YOU ALREADY MADE YOUR MIND ABOUT THE CASE BEFORE THE CASE WILL COME BEFORE YOU.

I UNDERSTAND LITTLE MORE THAN A DOUBLE INDICATE HE'S NOT.

HE'S ANXIOUS TO REFRAME ANYBODY AND STAFF THE MISSION FROM TAKING A POSITION ON THIS MATTER AT ANY AT ANY FUTURE.

MEET THE APPLICANT.

OBVIOUSLY, THEY MAY HAVE A GOOD ATTORNEY WILL USE THAT AS EVIDENCE OF DETERMINATION, EVIDENCE THAT THE COMMISSION HAS TAKEN ACTION AGAINST HIM WITHOUT EVEN HIM BEING INVITED.

SO DUE PROCESS IS A CENTRAL REQUIREMENT IN ANY ISSUE HERE.

OK, SO AS YOUR ATTORNEY, I IN FACT, IF YOU ASK ME RIGHT NOW, I WOULD TELL YOU THE CONVERSATION THAT WE ARE HAVING HERE RIGHT NOW ABOUT THIS MATTER.

IT WILL NOT HELP THE CASE.

OK, SO SO WITH THAT BEING SAID, I THINK WE NEED TO END THE CONVERSATION NOW BASED ON THE ADVICE OF THE ATTORNEY.

YOU KNOW, WE DON'T NEED TO PUT OURSELVES IN ANY KIND OF TROUBLE.

AGAIN, YOU KNOW, SOMETHING LIKE I'M SURE THE APPLICANT SOMEHOW HEARD ABOUT THIS AND THEY'RE THERE ON THIS CALL NOW.

SO EVEN HAVING THIS CONVERSATION IS A VIOLATION OF DUE PROCESS, WHICH IS A FUNDAMENTAL PIECE OF THE CONSTITUTION AND LAW.

AND SO WE SHOULD NOT WANT TO HARM ANYONE DUE PROCESS RIGHTS.

I KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO HAVE MY RIGHTS OF DUE PROCESS VIOLATED, AND I DON'T WANT TO IMPOSE IT ON ANYONE ELSE.

AND AGAIN, YOU KNOW, WELL, I'LL JUST END IT THERE, ALTHOUGH I THINK WE SHOULD PUT IT INTO THE CONVERSATION AND LET THE PROCESS PLAY OUT, BECAUSE THE PROCESS

[01:15:03]

THAT'S PLAYING OUT NOW IS A NORMAL PROCESS.

THE APPLICANT CAME TO THE CITY COMMISSION.

THEY GOT THE VOTES THAT THEY NEEDED AND THEN THEY HAVE TO GO THROUGH SEVERAL OTHER CHANNELS TO GET APPROVALS OR DENIALS OR ADJUSTMENTS THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE HAVE THE FINAL SAY WHENEVER IT COMES BACK TO US.

SO ALLOW THE PROCESS TO MOVE FORWARD.

AND WHEN THE PROCESS IS COMPLETED, IT COMES BACK TO US AND WE HAVE THE FINAL SAY AND WE MAKE THE DECISION AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME WHEN WE SERVE AS JUDGES.

AND SO, AGAIN, YOU KNOW, WE ARE I BELIEVE WHAT HINES IS SAYING IS WE ARE TAINTING OUR POSITION AS JUDGE IN THE QUASI JUDICIAL HEARING JUST BY EVEN HAVING THIS CONVERSATION.

AND TO GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE, WE HAD A SPEAKER FROM MONICA KING AND THAT SPEAKER WAS VERY CAREFUL ABOUT HIS WORDS.

AND I KNOW WHY HE'S A JUDGE.

YOU JUST GOT TO LET THE JUDGE.

SO HE CANNOT I MEAN, HE'S A GUY.

HE SAID BLUE LIVES MATTER, ALL LIVES MATTER, ALL KIND OF STUFF, BECAUSE HE HAS TO SAY THAT AS A JUDGE, HE CAN'T SHOW PREJUDICE OR THA WOULD HARM HIM IN HIS NEXT ELECTION CYCLE, NOT EVEN EVEN IN THE FUTURE CASE.

SO THE COMMISSION GARLAND ONLY.

BUT BUT THE APPLICANT CAN REQUEST RECUSAL, RIGHT? HE CAN BASICALLY HAVE THE JUDGE MOVE FROM THE CASE.

SO.

THAT'S RIGHT.

RIGHT.

SO I THINK IT'S BEST THAT WE I SEE THE INTENTIONS.

I UNDERSTAND THE INTENTION.

BUT THERE ARE DIFFERENT AGENCIES THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF FLORIDA, WHETHER IT'S ENVIRONMENTAL, WHETHER IT'S TRAFFIC, WHETHER IT'S ANYTHING CHECKING ON THE APPLICATION, WHICH IS WHY IT'S A MULTI-YEAR PROCESS T MAKE SURE ALL THE T'S ARE CROSSED, THAT DOT THE I'S ARE DOTTED, AND THEN IT COMES BACK TO US.

WE'LL HAVE OUR SAY WHENEVER IT COMES BACK TO US.

SO LET'S NOT TAINT THE PROCESS AS IT MOVES FORWARD.

SO THAT'S MY OPINION.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER.

I DON'T HEAR THAT CALL THE QUESTION, BUT SO THEREFORE, COMMISSIONER FLOCCO.

THANK YOU.

I HAVE JUST A COUPLE OF BASIC QUESTIONS.

WILL THIS BE GOING BACK TO BROWARD COUNTY, TO THE BROWARD COUNTY COMMISSION ONCE THE SITUATION IS CLEARED UP? WILL IT BE GOING BACK TO THE COUNTY? OH, YES.

YES.

OK, THANK YOU, MAXINE.

OK, SO WHAT IF IT GOES BACK TO THE COUNTY? IF IT FAILS AT THAT LEVEL, THEN IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING IT WILL NOT BE COMING BACK TO US.

SO WE MAY BE ARGUING A MOOT POINT HERE.

I UNDERSTAND THE VICE MAYOR'S CONCERN WHAT HE'S SAYING, BUT I ALSO THINK THAT EACH OF US HAS ENOUGH SENSE NOT TO BE, YOU KNOW, SUPPORTING THIS ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

I CERTAINLY COULD NOT AT THIS POINT.

I DON'T KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT THE PROJECT.

IT'S CHANGED TREMENDOUSLY, I'M SURE, OR I WOULD THINK SO.

I WOULD THINK NONE OF US WOULD BE COMMENTING ON THIS TO BEGIN WITH.

SO THAT'S THAT'S MY THREE CENTS, AND I AGREE WITH YOU, IF WE'RE GOING TO GO AGAINST OUR CITIES ATTORNEY ADVICE, THEN THAT DOESN'T MAKE A WHOLE LOT OF SENSE TO ME EITHER.

THANK YOU.

I'M VOTING ON THIS MATTER THE MOST, AND THAT'S BEFORE US CAUSE ISSUE TO THE CITY.

AS I INDICATED, AGAIN, DUE TO THE FACT WAS, OF COURSE, A JUDICIAL MATTER THAT CAME BEFORE THE COMMISSION, ANY DISCUSSION, I'M NOT GOING TO PREDICT THE FUTURE, BUT OBVIOUSLY AN APPLICANT IS NOT HERE, WAS INVITED, IS NOT A PUBLIC HEARING.

IT'S IT CAN BE HELPFUL TO EVEN HAVE THIS DISCUSSION.

OBVIOUSLY, MY RECOMMENDATION IS NOT TO HAVE THAT DISCUSSION AT ALL.

SO THIS IS YOUR TURN.

ANOTHER QUESTION.

IF THIS MOTION SHOULD CONTINUE, BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING, EVEN IF IT GOES FORWARD, IS THERE A WAY FOR ANYBODY TO RECUSE THEMSELVES FROM THAT VOTE? I KNOW WE HAVE VERY STRICT I'M NOT VOTING, BUT THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT MIGHT BE PUTTING PEOPLE IN JEOPARDY.

SO DO WE THEN HAVE THE RIGHT TO NOT NOT PUT OURSELVES IN JEOPARDY? NOT THE STATE LAW REQUIRE A MEMBER OF THE COMMISSION TO VOTE.

THAT'S THE STATE LAW.

IF THEY ARE PRESENT IN THE PUBLIC MEETING THAT REQUIRED TO VOTE UNLESS THEY HAVE A FINANCIAL COLUMN, THAT'S USUALLY THE TEST.

OK, WITH RESPECT TO MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION SERVING IN PROSIT JUDICIAL MATTER, THAT APPLICANT CAN OBVIOUSLY REQUEST RECUSAL.

[01:20:03]

AND AT THE TIME OF THE HEARING, ALSO, THE APPLICANT CAN OBVIOUSLY RAISE A BIAS ISSUE IF HE OR SHE IS DENIED A BENEFIT WITH RESPECT TO THE APPLICATION.

IS THAT SAME FOR YOU? ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THE APPLICANT HAVING THAT ABILITY NOW? WE KNOW THAT THERE'S AN ENTITY THAT IS AGAINST IT.

DO THEY HAVE THE SAME RIGHTS AS THE APPLICANT? YES.

IF IF THEY BELIEVE THAT A MEMBER OF THE CITY COMMISSION HAS PREDETERMINED HIS OR HER VOTE OR HAS DONE THINGS THAT MAY SHOW BIAS, OBJECT CAN RAISE THE SAME.

NOTHING CONCLUSIVE JUST FROM RAISING THAT ARGUMENT.

THANK YOU, LORD.

WE'RE GOING TO WRAP THIS UP THERE AGAIN, THE MOTION IS.

UNTIL AFTER.

IDENTIFIES THE ISSUES THAT HAVE BEEN PROPERLY ADDRESSED, MY MOTION IS FOR THE STATE COMMISSION STAFF.

FROM VOICING SUPPORT AND THE APPLICATION UNTIL THESE ISSUES ARE RESOLVED, THAT IS JUSTICE MOTION.

THERE'S NOTHING ELSE TO IT.

WE'RE NOT VOTING IN FAVOR OR AGAINST THE PROJECT.

WE'RE JUST THAT'S IT.

THERE'S NOTHING ELSE THAT.

CAN YOU JUST CALL THE QUESTIONING IS WHAT ARE YOU ON? WASTING.

MR. BOLTON.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

SO.

I THINK I THINK I UNDERSTAND WHAT WHAT THE VICE MAYOR WANTS, AND I MEAN, I NOW UNDERSTAND THAT AFTER HE REPEATED IT LIKE SEVEN TIMES.

SO SO HERE, HEAR ME OUT.

HE HE IS ASKING FOR US.

ESSENTIALLY TO FOLLOW THE LAW.

WHICH IS NOT TO TALK ABOUT THE PROJECT POSITIVELY OR NEGATIVELY.

THAT SO HE'S NOT HE'S NOT ASKING US TO TAKE ACTION TO.

HE'S NOT ASKING US TO TAKE ACTION TO SPEAK AGAINST A PROJECT OR SAY THE PROJECT IS GOOD OR BAD.

WHAT I UNDERSTAND THAT HE'S ASKING FOR IS SIMPLY.

A RESOLUTION AND A RESOLUTION IS ONLY AN EXPRESSION OF OF THE BODY.

HE'S ASKING FOR A RESOLUTION THAT SAYS.

WE WILL NOT TALK POSITIVELY OR NEGATIVELY ABOUT THE PROJECT, WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY FOLLOWING YOUR ADVICE AT ALL.

CAN WE JUST VOTE ON IT, PLEASE? OK.

SO SO I THINK WHAT I UNDERSTAND FROM ALL OF THIS IS THAT HE IS SAYING.

I WANT TO FOLLOW YOUR ADVICE, HONS.

I JUST WANTED TO BE IN WRITING.

SO I WANT TO FOLLOW YOUR ADVICE THAT SAYS WE WILL NOT PREJUDICE THE CLIENT, THE APPLICANT IN ANY WAY.

WE DON'T WANT THE CLIENT TO FEEL LIKE WE ARE BADMOUTHING THEM OR WE DON'T WANT THE CLIENT TO FEEL THAT WE ARE THROWING SUPPORT DURING GALAS OR DIFFERENT MEETINGS OR WHATEVER IT IS HE IS SAYING.

LET'S PUT IN WRITING THAT WE ARE FOLLOWING YOUR ADVICE.

DID YOU DO YOU UNDERSTAND IT THE WAY THAT I JUST LITERALLY JUST NOW UNDERSTOOD IT HAUNTS ME MY RESPONSE.

AND AGAIN, JUST JUST DISCUSSING THIS APPLICATION WITHOUT A HEART TO HEART.

I WOULD I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND WE DISCUSS IT AT ALL.

WE ARE WE'RE NOT WE'RE NOT DISCUSSING IT.

WE ARE SAYING LET'S PUT IN WRITING THAT WE SHOULD NOT DISCUSS IT UNTIL IT COMES BACK.

THAT'S THAT THAT'S WHAT I THAT'S WHAT I UNDERSTAND WHERE HE IS SAYING, LET US PUT IN WRITING THAT WE ARE NOT GOING TO DISCUSS THIS PROJECT.

BE AGAINST IT OR FOR IT UNTIL IT COMES BACK FOR A QUASI JUDICIAL HEARING,

[01:25:03]

WHICH IN MY OPINION STRENGTHENS THE THE WHOLE SANCTITY OF WHAT A QUASI JUDICIAL HEARING IS, BECAUSE WE'RE PUTTING IN WRITING THAT WE ARE AFFIRMING ABOUT BOLTON HERE IS AND THIS IS AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT SOME MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION MAY NOT BE AWARE.

THIS IS THE COUNTY OR STATE MAY HAVE TECHNICAL QUESTIONS THAT MAY HAVE TECHNICAL QUESTIONS ABOUT THE MATTER.

OK.

OK, SO THE CALL.

YEAH.

IF HE LIMITS HIS MOTION TO SAYING NO MEMBER OF THE CITY COMMISSION MAY OR MAY SPEAK ABOUT THE PROJECT IN ANY SETTING UNTIL IT COMES BACK FOR A QUASI JUDICIAL HEARING.

WOULDN'T THAT BE AFFIRMING THE SANCTITY OF A QUASI JUDICIAL HEARING THEN, BECAUSE WE DON'T ANSWER TECHNICAL QUESTIONS AGAIN? OH, NO, NO, I'M JUST GIVING YOU THE LAW AS I KNOW.

OK, AND AGAIN, IF THE COMMISSION DOESN'T WANT TO FOLLOW MY ADVICE AND ASK, DOES THE COMMISSION WILL? BUT MY ADVICE IS THAT I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS MOTION TO BE THAT'S WITHOUT I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HUN'S.

WE WE WOULD BE FOLLOWING YOUR ADVICE IN WRITING.

WE WOULD BE SAYING EXACTLY WHAT YOU JUST SAID IN WRITING, WHICH IS.

AS A MEMBER OF THE CITY COMMISSION, I WILL NOT DISCUSS THIS PROJECT IN ANY SETTING FOR OR AGAINST IT.

I WILL AND I WILL WAIT A SECOND.

I WILL PREJUDICE THE CLIENT.

I WILL GO ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

YOU KNOW, I WON'T TALK ABOUT IT IN ANY WAY.

I MEAN, I'VE SAID UNDER SUNSHINE BEFORE.

I THINK WHEN THEY WERE HERE THAT I LOVE A LOT OF THE PROJECT.

I HAPPEN TO BELIEVE THAT MEMBERS OF THE WOODLAND'S, THE PARTS OF THE WOODLAND'S NEED THE PROJECT.

I'VE SAID THAT SO THE APPLICANT KNOWS MY MY FEELING TOWARD THE PROJECT.

SO AT LEAST FOR ME, I'M NOT THIS IS NOT PREJUDICING THEM IN ANY WAY.

I'VE SAID THAT THERE'S SOME PARTS OF THE PROJECT THAT I DON'T LIKE AND THEY'RE PART OF THE PROJECT THAT I LIKE.

THEY KNOW THAT.

BUT I'M WAITING FOR THEM TO COME BACK AND TALK TO US IN THE QUASI JUDICIAL HEARINGS.

THEN I WILL WEIGH THE THE EVIDENCE THEN AND MAKE MY DECISION THEN.

BUT I THINK AT THIS POINT, WHAT THE VICE MAYOR IS ASKING FOR US TO DO IS TO REITERATE OUR OUR POSITION THAT WE WILL NOT PREJUDICE THE CLIENT.

THAT'S HOW I UNDERSTAND IT.

AND IF THAT IS THE WAY HOW I THINK THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY.

IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE.

MR. BOLTON IS.

I'LL CALL THAT.

YOU KNOW, I UNDERSTAND.

FIRST OF ALL, I WILL TELL YOU FROM THE COMMISSION AS WE WILL SPEAK, AN ISSUE.

I HAVE A QUASI JUDICIAL MATTER AGAIN.

YOU ARE BASICALLY IN A JUDGE LIKE CAPACITY, SO YOU HAVE TO REFRAIN FROM SPEAKING.

BUT THE PROBLEM WHEN YOU ACT IS WRITTEN RESOLUTION.

NOW, LET'S SAY HYPOTHETICALLY, SOMEBODY VIOLATE THAT RESOLUTION FOR OR AGAINST.

NOW, IF I'M THE APPLICANT, I HAVE EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT MY CASE.

IF I'M DENIED THAT THERE IS A RESOLUTION HERE THAT, SAY MEMBERS COMMISSION SHOULD NOT DISCUSS THIS MATTER WITH ANYONE RESIDENTS.

DEVELOPER OR EVEN FAMILY MEMBER, IF YOU WANT IF YOU WANT TO TAKE IT AS BROADLY.

I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THAT.

OK, WHAT WHAT DO WE DO WITH THIS MOTION THAT I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION, MAKE A MOTION TO TABLE THIS MOTION? YOU KNOW, WE PAY THE CITY ATTORNEY A LOT OF MONEY, MONEY, AND WE NEED TO TAKE OF IT.

BUT THEN IT TURNS OUT, I DON'T KNOW, THE CITY FOR 16 YEARS HAS A LOT OF EXPERIENCE.

WE NEED TO TAKE OUR SECOND THAT.

SORRY.

COMMISSIONER BOLTON, YOU HAVE A MOTION ALREADY, SO YOU HAVE TO TAKE ACTION ON

[01:30:03]

THE FIRST MOTION BEFORE YOU CAN.

SURE, THE ATTORNEY IS CORRECT THAT A MOTION TO TABLE SUPERSEDE JUST PROCEDURALLY, SINCE IT'S A MOTION AND A SECOND, I, I WOULD I WOULD BASICALLY DEAL WITH THAT FIRST.

AND AND AND THEN COMMISSIONER GARLAND CAN MAKE HIS MOTION TRADITION.

YEAH.

AND AND THEN IF IF HIS MOTION IS NOT SUPPORTED, WHY THEN WOULD WE NEED THIS MOTION.

IT DOESN'T SENSE THAT.

I THINK I THINK, MADAM MAYOR, YOU SHOULD JUST MOVE ON FROM THIS ITEM ANYWAY.

I THINK WE'VE DISCUSSED THIS AD NAUSEUM AND WE DON'T NECESSARILY NEED TO TAKE ACTIONS ON THE ON THE MOTION.

IT WOULD YOU BE AGREEABLE TO JUST WITHDRAWING YOUR MOTION? NO, I HAVE A MOTION ON THE TABLE.

I HAVE A SECOND.

AND MAYOR GOMEZ, IF YOU CAN PLEASE CALL THE ROLL AT THIS TIME.

ARE YOU WORKING ON YOUR SPEC INTO THE NOTES AND BASED ON ATTORNEY'S ADVICE? NO, I.

I DON'T BELIEVE IN NOT.

SO THEN THE MOTION IS ON THE FLOOR SUBJECT.

EVEN THOUGH IT WAS OUR UNDERSTANDING OF MOTION TO TABLE SUPERSEDES, WE'RE NOW PUT IN A SITUATION WHERE THIS COMMISSION IS NOW HAVING TO VOTE ON SOMETHING THAT THE CITY ATTORNEY HAS GIVEN US.

WARNING COULD BE AN ISSUE FOR THIS COMMISSION.

AND AS SUCH, EVERYONE HAS BEEN FOREWARNED.

SO PLEASE FOLLOW ME.

AND I DON'T THIS IS NOT THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT I HAVE TO VOTE ON BECAUSE PROCEDURALLY IT IS NOT A PROBLEM.

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU CAN'T USE THE RULES TO WHEN THEY'RE CONVENIENT UNDER THE SELECT ITEM, YOU HAVE STUCK IN THE MOTION.

YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO WITHDRAW YOUR SECOND ITEM BY ITEM.

IT'S NOT ON THE AGENDA.

CITY ATTORNEY, LET'S LISTEN.

MY MY INSTRUCTION, I LIKE THE FACT THAT COMMISSIONER BOLDEN, AS WE CAN, WE CAN MOVE WITH COMMISSION GARLAND MOTION TO TABLE THAT.

BUT HOW HOW WOULD WE CHANGE THE RULES AS WE GO ALONG? YOU KNOW, THIS IS KHOSRO.

LET'S A LITTLE OF YOUR REPLY.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO VOTE ON IT, AND THEREFORE WE NEED TO MOVE TO THE NEXT ITEM.

WE NEED TO MOVE.

OK, PROCEDURALLY, THIS HAS BEEN A MESS AND WE HAVE CERTAIN RULES AND REGULATIONS WILL BE FOLLOWED WHEN IT IS CONVENIENT FOR THIS COMMISSION AND FOR OTHERS.

THERE'S A MOTION TO TABLE A SECOND COMMISSIONER BUT DOESN'T WANT TO VOTE ON IT IS A VOTE ON IT, BUT JUST NOT FOR THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE THAT CAN VOTE.

I WAS TALKING ABOUT YOUR MOTION, VICE MAYOR, THE MOTION.

HOWEVER, THIS COULD MOVE OUR COMMISSIONER GARLAND MOTIONS ON THE FLOOR.

WE WILL MOVE FORWARD WITH THE MOTION TO TABLE THE ATTORNEY.

WE PLEASE CALL THE ROLL OF CITY CLERK, CITY PARK CITY CLERK.

I'M LOOKING AT JENNIFER'S PICTURE BOUNCING UP AND UP, COMMISSIONER BOLDON.

THIS IS THE MOTION TO TABLE.

MR. GARLAND, YES, THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER POLACCO.

YES, VICE MAYOR VILLA LOBOS, NO.

AND THEY ARE DOING THIS AS THE MOTION CARRIES THREE TO ONE, TABLE ONE, IS IT BEING TABLED FOR PRIOR TO THE MEETING OF THE COUNTY OR ONE? DEFINITELY AND DEFINITELY.

AND WE WILL NOW MOVE ON TO OUR CONSENT AGENDA.

CITY ATTORNEY, IS THERE ANYONE IS THERE ANY CONDITIONS OR THE INSPECTOR

[7. CONSENT AGENDA]

GENERAL? I DON'T HAVE ANY CITY MANAGER, ALTHOUGH THE MAYOR HAD TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES.

NONE OF THE.

NONE FOR ME EITHER, MADAM.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR.

I HAVE I.

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? OK.

I HAVE SORRY.

I HAD TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES BEFORE THERE.

THERE IS AN ITEM ON THE AGENDA THAT I WANT TO PULL.

IT IS ITEM SEVEN.

WE SEE OUR ONE THREE, FIVE, SIX, THREE, AND I APOLOGIZE, I HAD TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES, BUT FOR ONCE AGAIN, IT'S NOT HERE AND THERE WAS A BLACKOUT.

[01:35:05]

SO DO WE WANT TO CALL THE ROLL FOR HIS VOTE NOW? OK, GO AHEAD.

BUT WAS A DIFFERENT ITEM, CORRECT? OK, JUST CORONADO BOTTOM.

DO YOU WANT TO CALL THE CONFERENCE AGENDA? ARE WE DONE? ARE YOU GUYS DONE? AND YOU'RE DONE.

EXCELLENT.

WE CAN PROBABLY MOVE ON BECAUSE IT'S OBVIOUS THAT COMMISSIONER PAULSON DOES NOT WANT TO DO AS YOU SAY, COMMISSIONER, GOING ANYWHERE.

SO WE ARE PULLING ITEM 70 FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA.

AND ARE THERE IF THERE'S NO OTHER ITEMS TO BE PULLED, DO I HAVE A MOTION IN THE SECOND FOR THE CONSENT AGENDA AS MODIFIED? MOTION TO APPROVE THIS PURPOSE FOR THE WORLD.

THANK YOU, MR. POLACCO.

YES.

THANK YOU, GARLAND.

YES, YES, MR. BOLTON.

COMMISSIONER VOTED YES, I'M SAYING YES, I'M STARVING, SORRY, I'M STILL HAVING DIFFICULTIES.

YES, THANK YOU.

AND MAYOR GOMEZ.

YES.

MOTION CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY FIVE ZERO.

THANK YOU.

NOW, MR. GOODVIN, I JUST HAVE SEVEN DAYS, SO THE ATTORNEY PLEASE READ THE

[7.d. TR13563 - Authorization for Specification Writing Services for Emergency Assistance Repairs Program (Round 5) (Part 1 of 2)]

TITLE FOR THE RECORD, OF COURSE WE ARE ONE THREE FIVE SIX THREE AUTHORIZATION FOR SPECIFICATION SERVICES, FOR MARKETING ASSISTANCE, FOR CASH FOR ROUND FIVE, A RESOLUTION TO THE COMMISSION.

OVER THE THIRD, AMENDING THE AGREEMENT WITH TSC.

ASSOCIATE IT TO PROVIDE HOMES, INSPECTOR, SPECIFICATION WRITER AND CONSTRUCTION SERVICE INCREASE THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT TO THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND AND WE KNOW WILL ALL THE STORY FOLLOWS.

TWO THOUSAND TWENTY ONE AUTHORIZES A CITY OFFICIAL EXECUTED AMENDMENT NUMBER THREE ATTACHED TO AN EXHIBIT NUMBER ONE INC.. HERE IT PROVIDES A WINDOWS LUBBOCK ISD PROVIDES A SEVERAL SOLVABILITY PROVIDE FOR AN EFFECTIVE.

THANK YOU, NEED EMOTIONAL SECOND SON MOVED.

THE SECOND CIRCUIT, THANK YOU.

MR. BOLTON, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING YOU WISH TO SAY ABOUT THIS MATTER? YOU JUST WANTED THIS VOTED ON SEPARATELY? YES, MA'AM.

I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS ON THE FLOOR.

OK.

AND TO BE CLEAR ON COMMISSIONER GUILLEN'S MOTION TO TABLE, I WAS NOT

[Additional Item (Part 2 of 2)]

HERE, BUT IF I WERE, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE AFFIRMATIVE.

JUST SO THAT IF ANY OF YOUR THUGS WANT TO FILE AN ETHICS COMPLAINT THAT I DID NOT WANT, THAT WAS NOT THE CASE.

I JUST HAD TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES.

SO I VOTE IN THE AFFIRMATIVE.

OK, WHAT DO WHAT DID YOU HEAR? ME? OK, SO YOU YOU AMENDED US AS DIRECTED.

NOW, YOU VOTED FOR THE BILL AND IN THE AFFIRMATIVE, YES, YOU ARE.

THANK YOU.

OK, ON THIS ITEM, MY QUESTION IS, WHO OWNS THI BUSINESS? I DID A QUICK SEARCH ON SUNDAYS.

THEY PULLED THEIR LICENSE AND I WAS A LITTLE BIT CONFUSED THROUGH THE SO WHAT I PULLED.

SO CAN STEVE KEITH GLATZ, TELL US JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT TEA? AS ASSOCIATES ARE THE MINORITY OWNED.

HOW LONG HAVE THEY BEEN IN BUSINESS? ARE THEY IN THE TAMARAC, THAT SORT OF STUFF? MR. GHAZZAWI AVAILABLE.

OK, HAVING A LITTLE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES THERE MYSELF, KEITH KLUTZES, THE PURCHASING CONTRACTS MANAGER, TASB, WE'VE BEEN DEALING WITH TASB FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS.

THEY HAVE RESPONDED RIGSY THROUGH A COMPETITIVE BID PROCESS A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.

TO BE HONEST, THEY WE WERE NOT CHECKING THE OWNERSHIP AT THE TIME.

WE COMPETITIVELY BID IT.

I BELIEVE IT'S A SINGLE OWNER OF THE COMPANY.

I BELIEVE HE IS A MALE AND A NONMINORITY.

I DON'T BELIEVE HE'S IN I DON'T BELIEVE HE IS A TAMARAC RESIDENT OR A

[01:40:09]

VETERAN.

LET ME JUST ADD TO THAT, KEITH.

IT'S A MINORITY OWNED IT IS OK.

OK, HOW IS IT ASIAN? CAN YOU TELL ME HOW THEY ARE MINORITY OWNED BY WHAT OUR STANDARD I KNOW THAT THE THAT THE OWNER IS WILLIAM RUFFIN WITH A FORT LAUDERDALE ADDRESS, ACCORDING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONA REGULATION.

THE OWNER IS A BLACK MALE.

[7.d. TR13563 - Authorization for Specification Writing Services for Emergency Assistance Repairs Program (Round 5) (Part 2 of 2)]

OK, AND WHEN DID WE.

SO ACCORDING TO THE RESOLUTION, WE ENTER INTO AGREEMENT WITH THEM IN 2007 AND 2016, RIGHT? THAT IS CORRECT, COMMISSIONER.

AND IN 2016, THE CONTRACT WAS ONLY SIX TO FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS WAS YEAR AND ONLY TO.

OK.

THREE YEARS LATER, IT WOULD ESCALATE TO THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND MS. CALAWAY A JUMP, AND IN THREE YEARS FROM SIX TO FIVE THOUSAND TO THEN GO TO THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND TO ME IS A LITTLE BIT EXCESSIVE.

DID YOU, DID YOU DIDN'T SEEM TO BACK UP THE MENU OF SERVICES THAT THE THAT THEY OFFER FOR INSTANCE IN 2016.

THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT THEY DID IN TWENTY SEVENTEEN.

THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT THEY DID IN TWENTY EIGHTEEN.

THESE ARE THE THINGS, THE, THE, THE MEMO IS JUST A LITTLE BIT VAGUE.

AND LET ME TELL YOU HOW BIG IT IS.

IT SAYS THE US DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT IS SCHEDULED TO PERFORM A TIMELINESS TEST ON AUGUST TWO, 2021.

THE TESTS INDICATE INDICATES TIME, TIMELINESS IN SPENDING OUR ENTITLEMENT ALLOCATIONS IN ORDER TO HAVE AN ACCEPTABLE SPENDING RATIO.

THE NUMBER OF HOMES TO BE REPAIRED AND INSPECTED WITHIN THE NEXT SIX MONTHS HAS INCREASED, WHICH WILL CHANGE THE VALUE OF THE AGREEMENT BUT WILL NOT EXCEED THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND.

BUT SO YOU'VE ONLY TOLD ME THAT THEY'RE GOING TO DO MORE WORK, BUT YOU'VE NOT DEMONSTRATED THE AMOUNT OF WORK THAT THEY HAD IN 2016, THE AMOUNT OF WORK THAT THEY HAD OVER THE YEARS AND AND NOW THEY HAVE MORE RESPONSIBILITIES.

I DON'T I DON'T SEE THAT.

WHAT WHAT DID YOU NOT PUT THAT IN? I APOLOGIZE IF YOU DON'T HAVE WHAT I HAVE IN FRONT OF ME OR READ IN THE SECOND PAGE OF THE MEMORANDUM.

THE FIRST PAGE INCLUDES THE PROGRESSION OF OUR EXPERIENCE WITH WITH TSC ASSOCIATE.

IT SPEAKS TO WHEN WE ENTERED INTO THE CONTRACT IN 2016, THE SUM AT THAT TIME WHEN WE EXTENDED THE CONTRACT IN 2017, THE SUM AT THAT TIME, AN ADDITIONAL SIXTY THOUSAND, BRINGING IT TO ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN THOUSAND.

AND THEN IT SPEAKS TO THE SECOND AMENDMENT THAT BROUGHT IT TO ONE SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND.

AND THEN THIS AMENDMENT THAT SEEKS TO BRING IT TO NOT TO EXCEED THREE HUNDRED POUNDS.

AND IT ALSO SPEAKS.

SCALLOWAY, I, I SEE IT, I CAN READ, READ THE WHOLE THING.

WHAT I'M SAYING IS IN TWENTY SIXTEEN YOU IT IT WAS A NOT TO EXCEED AMOUNT OF SIX TO FIVE THOUSAND AND THEN IT ESCALATED TO ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND AND THEN IT ESCALATES NOW TO NOT TO EXCEED THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND.

SO I GET, I GET THE ESCALATIONS AND I SEE HOW IT PROGRESSED UNDER THE BACKGROUND.

I, I WAS, I WAS HERE, I REMEMBER IT.

BUT WHAT I'M SAYING IS THAT YOU HAVE NOT SHOWN THE MENU OF SERVICES IN 2016.

IN 2016 WE SIGNED AN AGREEMENT NOT TO EXCEED SIX TO FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS BECAUSE COMPANY X WAS DOING RESPONSIBILITIES ABCDE, DFG, AND THEN WE INCREASED THE AGREEMENT BECAUSE COMPANY X WAS DOING A, B, C, BUT NOW THEY'RE DOING WHATEVER IT IS.

AND THEN, NOW TWENTY, TWENTY ONE, THERE'S EVEN MORE WORK.

AND THIS IS A LIST OF THE WORK, THIS IS THE SCOPE OF, OF THEIR WORK.

[01:45:07]

I DON'T SEE A CONTRACT THAT SAYS, OK, HERE'S THE SCOPE OF THE WORK THAT IS CHANGED.

ALL ALL THAT YOU GAVE ME IS AN AMENDMENT TO THE AGREEMENT AND YOU SAID AMEND ARTICLE FOUR, WHICH IS JUST AMENDING THE CONTRACT AMOUNTING TO THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS.

THERE'S NO SCOPE OF WORK.

YOU YOU HAVE NOT SAID YOU'VE YOU'VE SPENT YOU KNOW, JUST VAGUELY THE SCOPE OF WORK HAS CHANGED BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO INSPECT A NUMBER OF HOUSES.

BUT HOW MANY HOUSES, HOW MANY HOUSES WERE THEY INSPECTING LAST TWO YEARS? HOW MANY ARE THEY GOING TO BE DOING NOW? YOU KNOW, THERE'S SOME CLARIFICATION.

THE SCOPE ITSELF HAS NOT CHANGED.

THEY PROVIDE FOR THE SAME TYPE OF SERVICE.

THEY CONDUCT RESIDENTIAL INSPECTIONS TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT OF THE REHAB THAT'S NEEDED ON EACH ROOM THAT WE REHABILITATE.

THEY PREPARE THE COST ESTIMATE PURSUANT TO INDUSTRY STANDARD, AND THEN THEY PROVIDE THE SPECIFICATIONS FOR EACH HOME.

SO THE SCOPE ITSELF HAS NOT CHANGED THE VOLUME OF WORK EACH YEAR.

AND SO.

THE AGREEMENT THAT WAS BROUGHT TO YOU IN TWO THOUSAND AND SIXTEEN, IT HAS SOME RENEWABLE OPTIONS AND SO WE WERE ABLE TO RENEW THEM EACH YEAR, WHICH INCREASED THE VALUE.

BUT THE SCOPE ITSELF IN TERMS OF THE WORK THAT THEY PROVIDE FOR US HAS NOT CHANGED.

I CAN PROVIDE TO YOU WITH TOTAL OR AN ANNUAL AMOUNT OF WE HAVE HOMES THAT THEY DO.

I CAN GIVE THAT TO YOU AND SEND AN EMAIL WITH THAT INFORMATION.

WE NORMALLY PROVIDE AN UPDATE ON THE AMOUNT OF HOUSING REHAB THAT WE DO ON AN ANNUAL BASIS, BUT I CAN PROVIDE THAT TO YOU.

BUT THE SCOPE ITSELF DID NOT CHANGE.

THE SERVICE IS ALWAYS BEEN THE SAME AMOUNT.

BUT BUT IF I'M GOING TO GIVE SOMEBODY ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS, I WANT TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE GOING TO BE DOING MORE WORK AND I WANT TO SEE THE WORK THAT THEY ARE DOING.

SO THIS THIS IS TOO BIG.

SO I APPRECIATE THE EMAIL AND I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN SEND IT NOW BECAUSE I WANT TO BE COMFORTABLE ABOUT SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT SO THAT IF SO.

I GUESS THE QUESTION IS WHETHER THE AGREEMENT WAS SUPPOSED TO EXPIRE FEBRUARY 16, BUT WE'RE JUST EXTENDING THE AGREEMENT UNTIL AUGUST THIRTY FIRST.

SO IN SENSE, WE ARE WE'RE NOT EVEN GIVING THEM ONE HUNDRED FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS ADDED FOR A NEW CONTRACT.

WE'RE JUST GIVING A MODERATE TRUSTEE THOUSAND DOLLARS TO DO WORK OVER THE NEXT SIX MONTHS.

IS THAT CORRECT? AND I THINK WHAT YOU WROTE INITIALLY WAS JUST A JUSTIFICATION BECAUSE OF COLE THAT WE WERE UNABLE TO REALLY FOCUS ON THE REHAB PROJECT.

WE HAD PROPERTY OWNERS THAT WERE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH INSPECTORS AND STAFF COMING INTO THEIR HOME.

AND SO WE HAD TO MOVE OUR FOCUS ON THE EMERGENCY REPAIR PROGRAM.

WE WERE UNABLE TO DO THE RESIDENTIAL ASSISTANT FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS, INCLUDING THE DISCOMFORT OF SOME OF OUR PROPERTY OWNERS COMING INTO THEIR PROPERTY NONETHELESS, BUT HAS NOT EXTENDED OR TIME ON THIS DEADLINE.

WE HAVE TO EXPEND CERTAIN FUNDS FROM OUR ACCOUNT BY AUGUST OF THIS YEAR.

SO THAT'S REALLY THE JUSTIFICATION AS TO WHY WE NEEDED TO DO AN AMENDMENT.

AND AND THE THOUSAND DOLLARS IS COMING FROM WHERE IT CBG FUNDS AND THEN INTEND ON REBIN IN THIS PROJECT, OF COURSE, IN AUGUST OF THIS YEAR.

OK, SO THIS IS COMING FROM SEABAG FUNDS, BUT IF WE DID IF WE WERE DOING ANOTHER TYPE OF PROJECT LIKE A FREE PAINT PROGRAM, THIS THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS COULD HAVE BEEN SPENT IN A BETTER WAY, DON'T YOU THINK? IT'S LIKE WE'RE GIVING WE'RE GIVING A LARGE AMOUNT, A LARGE AMOUNT OF THE MONEY.

TWO PEOPLE TO DO WORK, BUT IT'S JUST TO INSPECT THE HOUSE, THEN TO TURN AROUND AND SPEND A FEW MORE DOLLARS TO ACTUALLY FIX TH HOUSE IS IS WHAT I'M SAYING.

SO IF WE HAD THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS TO GIVE THIS INSPECTION COMPANY AND THEN ANOTHER THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS TO FIX HOMES, THAT WOULD BE SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS, THAT COULD BE USED IN A BETTER WAY.

I JUST DON'T FEEL LIKE IT IS RIGHT TO GIVE ONE COMPANY THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS TO INSPECT HOMES.

AND THEN HOW MANY HOMES ARE THEY GOING TO INSPECT.

LIKE FIVE OR SIX.

BECAUSE FROM YOUR FROM WHAT YOU'VE SAID IN THE PAST, THE MONEY IS NOT ENOUGH TO HELP A LOT OF PEOPLE.

SO HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE WE HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE WE PLANNING TO HELP? NO, IT WOULD BE ABOUT 15 MILLION HOMES THAT WOULD BE INSPECTED.

[01:50:04]

AND WHEN WE SAID NOT TO EXCEED THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS, IT DOESN'T NECESSARILY MEAN WE'LL SPEND THE ENTIRE 150.

AND WE JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DON'T NEED TO COME BACK TO YOU.

SO IT'S LIKELY IT'S NOT GOING TO BE UP TO THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS AND THEN TO MS.. GALLOWAY NO, NO, BECAUSE I DID THE MATH AND YOU KNOW.

YOU KNOW WHY? I KNOW THAT IS NOT TRUE.

HERE, LET ME TELL YOU, THE CONTRACT IS MOVING FROM ONE SEVENTY FIVE TO THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND.

THAT'S A HUNDRED AND TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS INCREASE.

SO SOMEWHERE IN THERE, SOMEBODY PUT TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.

I DON'T SEE A CONTINGENCY WHERE WHERE'S THE MATH? BECAUSE THE LAST PARAGRAPH OF THE OF THE MEMO, THE FRONT PAGE SAYS SUBSEQUENTLY THE CITY ESTIMATES THAT AN ADDITIONAL ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS WOULD BE NECESSARY TO MEET THE CURRENT AND FUTURE NEEDS FOR THE HOME INSPECTIONS THEN.

SO THEN WHERE'S THAT? WHERE'S THE THE THE TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS GOING? BECAUSE THIS IS A HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN PLUS ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE IS ONE HUNDRED AND IT'S TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY THOUSAND SO.

WHERE'S THE OTHER TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS GOING NOWHERE, COMMISSIONER.

THAT'S A NOT TO EXCEED ROUNDED FIGURES.

I AM NOT TO EXCEED THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS.

AND SO, AS I SAID BEFORE, LIFE.

EXCUSE ME.

HOLD ON.

SO, SO SO THEN THERE'S A CONTINGENCY BUDGET OF TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.

RIGHT.

THE TERMINOLOGY THAT WE'RE COMFORTABLE WITH, THEN THAT'S FINE, BUT IT'S NOT INTENDED TO BE THAT IT'S A NOT TO EXCEED THE AMOUNT THAT WE WERE TRYING TO HIT.

SO SO THEN YOU'RE SAYING THAT YOU'D COME CLOSE TO THE THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS WOULD YOU WOULDN'T GO OVER IT, BUT ACCORDING TO THE MEMO, IT WOULD BE ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS THAT IS REALLY NEEDED.

SO THEN YOU'D HAVE TEN, TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS LEFT OVER.

SO THEY AT SOME POINT COULD SAY, OH WE FORGOT TO DO X, SO WE'RE GOING TO CHARGE NINE THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED NINETY NINE DOLLARS, 99 CENTS ADDITIONALLY.

AND IT DOESN'T GO WITH THE THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS, WHETHER OR NOT IS ONE HUNDRED TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS, WHETHER OR NOT IS ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.

I'M NOT COMFORTABLE GIVING SOMEBODY THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS TO DO INSPECTIONS ON 10, 15 HOMES.

IT IS IT IS IT IS CRAZY HOW MUCH MONEY WE HAVE TO SHELL OUT ONLY TO HELP 15 RESIDENTS.

FIFTEEN, FIFTEEN RESIDENTS, AND THIS IS JUST SPENDING MONEY ON AN INSPECTION, IT'S IS NOT RIGHT AND I SAID THAT TWO YEARS AGO.

I SAID THAT I SAID THREE YEARS AGO, TWO YEARS AGO AND A YEAR AGO.

AND SEEING IT AGAIN, WE'RE GIVING COMPANIES TOO MUCH MONEY AND ADMINISTRATIVE FEES THAT COULD HAVE OTHERWISE GONE INTO THE POCKETS OF OUR RESIDENTS DURING COGAT.

THIS THIS IS THIS IS BAD.

THIS THIS IS THIS IS BAD BUSINESS, MISS GALLOWAY.

I'M NOT I'M NOT COMFORTABLE IN DOING IT, SO.

SO THEN THE AGREEMENT THAT WE HAVE WITH TASB.

IS IT IS IT AUTOMATICALLY RENEWED IN AUGUST OR DOES IT HAVE TO COME BACK BEFORE THE COMMISSION? WE WILL BE COMPETITIVELY BID IN IT COME AUGUST.

SO WHAT BEFORE YOU NOW IS AN EXTENSION JUST TO GET US TO AUGUST, TO ALLOW US TO GO TO REHAB THESE PROPERTIES.

OTHERWISE, IF WE'RE UNABLE TO MEET OUR EXPENDITURE DEADLINE IN AUGUST, THEN WE ARE IN JEOPARDY OF LOSING THOSE FUNDS.

OK, THAT'S A.

GARLAND.

YEAH, A QUESTION FOR EITHER KEITH OR MAXINE, THE APPLICANT OR DOES THE VENDOR PROVIDE INVOICES? OH, ABSOLUTELY, YES.

OK.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, SEEING THAT THERE'S NOBODY ELSE TO WISH TO SPEAK ON THIS MATTER SO QUICKLY, PLEASE.

YES, MA'AM.

MR. GARLAND.

YES.

THANK YOU, MR. POCHO.

YES, NO.

COMMISSIONER BOLTON, NO, MARIO MS., THAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO DO.

YOU SEE WHERE THE BEGINNING AND END OF IT IS, OBVIOUSLY, IT'S KIND OF A SMALL SCALE.

I APOLOGIZE, WE PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE BLOWN IT UP A LITTLE MORE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO SIMILAR FORCE, MAIN INSTALLATION PROJECTS, THE CENTER SLIDE SHOWS A TYPICAL CUT AND COVER PROCESS, WHICH IS GOING TO BE USED FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE FOREST MAIN REPLACEMENT, THE MAJORITY THAT FALLS WITHIN NORTHWEST FIFTY SIXTH STREET AND TO THE RIGHT AND TO THE LEFT OF THAT CENTER PHOTO SHOWS TYPICAL DIRECTIONAL BORING PROCESS.

AND THAT PROCESS IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO USE TO CROSS COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD FROM THE NORTH TO THE SOUTH AT WHITE OAKLAND.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THE PROJECT BUDGET AND TIME LINE REPLACEMENT AND RELOCATION OF THE FOUR MAIN FORBIDDEN NUMBER, TWENTY ONE DASH 4B CONTRACT AGREEMENT WITH SANFORD CONSTRUCTION COMPANY CONTRACT COST CONTRACT IS THREE HUNDRED EIGHTY FOUR THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTY FOUR DOLLARS AND FORTY FOUR CENTS.

CONTINGENCY IS FIFTY SEVEN THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTY NINE DOLLARS AND SIXTY SEVEN CENTS FOR A TOTAL PROJECT BUDGET OF FOUR HUNDRED AND FORTY ONE THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED AND FOUR DOLLARS AND 11 CENTS.

THE PROJECT TIMELINE.

THE FINAL COMPLETION IS SCHEDULED TO BE ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY DAYS FROM NOTICE TO PROCEED.

CONTRACTOR IS A RECOGNIZED BROWARD COUNTY MINORITY OWNED BUSINESS AND AS A DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE.

NEXT SLIDE.

ALL RIGHT, THE LAST SLIDE IS A QUESTION, SO I GUESS I CAN JUST SAY QUESTIONS.

EXCELLENT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. FLOCKE.

THANK YOU, JACK.

CAN YOU TELL ME HOW WILL THIS HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE COMMUNITY, THE TRAFFIC, IT'LL POSSIBLY DISRUPT THE INSTALLATION ON FIFTY SIXTH STREET, BUT BECAUSE THERE'S

[02:00:06]

ALTERNATE ROUTES TO GET OUT OF THOSE NEIGHBORHOODS AND STUFF AND THEY'LL ONLY CLOSE DOWN ONE LANE AT A TIME WITH THE DISRUPTION WILL BE MINIMIZED AND UNBIASED USING RATIONAL, BORING UNDER COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD, WHICH YOU CAN IMAGINE IF WE DID A CUT AND COVER PROJECT ACROSS COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD, THERE'D BE A HUGE DISRUPTION TO TRAFFIC.

AND SO WE ARE AVOIDING THAT BY DOING THE DIRECTION BORING.

SO WE'LL BE ON THE NORTH, ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF IT RIGHT AWAY FOR COMMERCIAL AND BORING ACROSS COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD TO THE NORTH SIDE TO MAKE OUR CONNECTION.

OK, SO YOU'RE SAYING AS FAR AS TRAFFIC ON COMMERCIAL, IT WILL HAVE NO IMPACT? NO.

OK, GOING BACK TO FIFTY SEVEN FOR A MINUTE.

FIFTY SIX.

FIFTY SIX.

SORRY.

YOU SAID CLOSING ONE LANE DOWN AT A TIME.

CAN YOU GIVE ME MORE INFORMATION.

WELL I'M YOU KNOW, THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE A MAINTENANCE OF TRAFFIC AND THAT HAS TO BE APPROVED BY US.

AND THAT'S ALL PART OF WHEN WE GIVE THEM THE NOTICE TO PROCEED, THEY'D HAVE TO SUBMIT THAT TO US AND HAVE TO BE APPROVED US.

BUT WE NORMALLY WOULD REQUIRE THEM TO KEEP AT LEAST ONE LANE OPEN AT ALL TIMES.

NOW, THERE ARE GOING TO BE HALF AN HOUR WINDOW WHERE A TRUCK HAS TO BACK UP AND THEN PECULIAR TO THE TRENCH OR SOMETHING.

AND SO IT MAY BE CLOSED FOR A 10, 15 MINUTE PERIOD, BUT IT'LL BE MANNED BY FLAGMAN OR THEY WILL, YOU KNOW, GET SOME KIND OF A DETOUR TO WORK AROUND IT.

THERE'S A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT STREETS TO ASK ACCESS.

FIFTY SIX STREETS.

SO YOU COULD POSSIBLY GO AROUND BY OTHER ROUTES, ET CETERA, DEPENDING ON WHERE THEY'RE WORKING ALONG FIFTY SIXTH STREET.

BUT WE OBVIOUSLY REQUIRE THEM TO MAINTAIN TRAFFIC IN AN ORDERLY MANNER.

AND ACTUALLY OUR MOTIVES ARE ACTUALLY ALSO APPROVED BY DADE COUNTY.

IS THERE ANY WAY TO NOT SCHEDULE THIS DURING BUSY HOURS, LIKE EARLY IN THE MORNING AND LATE IN THE AFTERNOON WHEN PEOPLE ARE COMING AND GOING FROM WORK SO WE DON'T TIE UP TRAFFIC? OR DURING THOSE HOURS, YOU WOULD HAVE HAD YOU YOU WOULD HAVE HAD TO INCORPORATE THAT GO WHEN YOU WENT OUT TO BID.

IF YOU AND IF YOU APPLY THAT RULE AFTER YOU'VE GONE OUT AND WASN'T PART OF THE ORIGINAL SCOPE FACTOR WOULD BE WITHIN HIS RIGHTS TO COME BACK TO US.

AND KEITH CAN JUMP IN HERE ANYTIME HE WANTS.

BUT, YOU KNOW, YOU WOULD HE WOULD MAKE CHANGES.

AND SO THEY WOULD HAVE TO REQUEST AN OPPORTUNITY, WHICH WE WOULD NOT DO.

BUT REST ASSURED, WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT THE TRAFFIC IS MAINTAINED PROPERLY.

AND THERE ARE A COUPLE OF OF OF ACCESSING THOSE NEIGHBORHOODS.

AND IT IS A FAIRLY SMALL AREA.

AND THOSE PEOPLE LIVE ON BANAIAN LANE.

OBVIOUSLY, IF THERE'S CONSTRUCTION GOING ON ON FIFTY SIXTH STREET, THEN THEY CAN GO SOUTH TO WOODLANDS BOULEVARD AND GO OUT THAT WAY.

SO THERE'S THERE'S A BUNCH OF ALTERNATIVE METHODS TO TRAVEL AROUND THROUGH THAT.

BUT STILL, I DON'T THINK THAT WE ARE THE TRAFFIC IMPACT IS GOING TO BE A HUGE FACTOR HERE.

THEY'LL BE DOING SMALL RUNS AT A TIME, MAYBE 40 FEET OR TRENCH AT A TIME.

THEY'LL BE BACK FILLING AS THEY'RE INSTALLING AND STUFF.

AND SO IT'S NOT GOING TO BE A HUGE IMPACT.

OK, I DO KNOW THAT THE TRAFFIC UP IN THAT AREA IS ALWAYS A CONCERN.

I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE SAYING ABOUT THE CURRENT CONTRACT, BUT MAYBE WE MIGHT WANT TO THINK ABOUT THAT FOR FUTURE CONTRACTS THAT MAY BE IN HIGHLY TRAFFICKED AREAS THAT WE MIGHT WANT TO HAVE THEM AT OFF HOURS.

JUST A SUGGESTION.

THANK YOU, GENERAL.

THANK YOU.

MR. GAGNON.

YEAH, WHAT IS THE MINORITY CLASSIFICATION OF THE COMPANY, AFRICAN-AMERICAN, I'M MALE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMISSIONER.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

SOME OF THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN BROUGHT UP, BUT.

THIS IS FOR JACK BAUER TO BEGIN WORK AT LEAST A COUPLE OF WEEKS BEFOREHAND.

WILL YOU BE REACHING OUT TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR WOMEN'S ASSOCIATION, SECTION TWO AND SEXUAL? WE DEFINITELY WOULD TELL THAT TO THE NEIGHBORS.

WELL, WE'LL ACTUALLY PUT OUT DOOR HANGERS ON A LOT OF THE DOORS THAT ARE

[02:05:03]

IMMEDIATELY ADJACENT TO THE WORK TO ALLOW THEM TO KNOW THAT WHAT'S COMING, ET CETERA.

AND WE CAN WE WILL REACH OUT TO THE WAYS THAT OUR COVER THAT AREA.

APPRECIATE IT.

IF YOU NEED ANY OF THE CONTACT INFORMATION, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

BUT THAT IS THE SERVICE ROAD.

FIFTY SIX IS A SERVICE ROAD AND I UNDERSTAND THE WORK THAT IS GOING TO BE DONE IS ALSO VERY BENEFICIAL TO THE COMMUNITY OVER THERE, SOMETHING THAT IS NEEDED AS WELL.

BUT THIS WAY THAT THEY ARE AWARE OF SOME OF THE TRAFFIC IMPACT THAT THEY WILL HAVE COMING IN AND OUT OF THEIR HOMES, AND ALSO BECAUSE IT IS PURELY RESIDENTIAL OVER THERE AND ACROSS THE WAY THAT THEY'RE AWARE THEY WILL BE HAVING ANY NOISE IN THE MORNING PRIOR TO.

IT STARTED THE DAY, RIGHT NOW THE CONTRACTOR IS REQUIRED BY OUR ORDINANCE, NOT START UP ANY HEAVY EQUIPMENT PRIOR TO EIGHT O'CLOCK.

IF THEY DO AND WE FIND SOMEBODY REPORTS IT TO US, WE WILL OBVIOUSLY CORRECT THAT PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

NO OTHER QUESTIONS, IF YOU WOULD, PLEASE CALL THE ROLL.

OH, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT.

MY APOLOGIES.

I FORGOT WITH OUR VIRTUAL MEETINGS, ANY PUBLIC COMMENTS ALL THE TIME, AND THERE'S NO PUBLIC COMMENT FOR NOW CLOSED.

SO THEY SAID IF I THIS CALL THE REAL PROBLEM.

YES, MR. GARLAND.

YES.

MR. BOLTON.

YES.

MR. POLACCO.

YES.

AMERICAN MS.. YES.

MOTION CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY.

FIVE ZERO.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

MOVING ON TO A, B, C OR ONE THREE FIVE FIVE FRIENDS ACCUSED THE CITY OF

[8.b. TR13565 - Granting Keys to the City and Proclamations]

PROCLAMATION'S GREATLY PLEASED WITH THE PART OF THE RECORD.

YES, A RESOLUTION CITY COMMISSION SYSTEM WORKS ON ESTABLISHING A POLICY FOR ONE KEYS TO THE CITY GARLAND CITY PROCLAMATION.

BUT THE CONFERENCE PROVIDES FOR SEVERAL BUILDING PROVIDE FOR THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE ONE MILE AMENDMENT TO SECTION TWO.

IT WAS REQUESTED BY COMMISSIONER BOLTON AND WOULD LIKE TO READ IT.

THE LAST SENTENCE IN SECTION 2A IS DELETED.

WE PLACE WITHIN THIS WOULD BASICALLY BE THE KEY MAY ALSO BE AWARDED TO A PERSON WHO HAS PERFORMED AN ACT OF TERRORISM OR MADE A CONTRIBUTION TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC OR ANY INDIVIDUAL DEEMED WORTHY OF THE KEY TO THE CITY BY A MEMBER OF THE CITY COMMISSION FIELD.

SO THAT WAS ALL THERE AND THEN, YOU KNOW, YOU PUT THAT ON IT.

SHOULD HAVE BEEN ADDED BEFORE THE AGENDA.

I JUST HAVE A QUESTION WHILE WE'RE WAITING.

YES.

SHOULD THIS EVIDENCE HAVE BEEN PROVIDED TO, AS FAR AS WE CAN HAVE READ THIS PRIOR TO THIS MEETING? IT WOULD HAVE BEEN PREFERRED.

SO THIS COMMISSION CAN DISCUSS WHETHER OR NOT THIS ADDITION IS SOMETHING TO ADD OR IF WE'RE GOING TO KEEP IT FROM WHAT HAS BEEN PROVIDED TO US OR PREPARATION.

BUT I HAD TROUBLE HEARING THE CITY ATTORNEY, SO I'D LIKE TO ACTUALLY READ WHAT IT WAS WHAT WAS BEING PRESENTED IN THE VERSUS ATHLETICA.

PLEASE NOTE, THIS AMENDMENT WAS BASED ON A DISCUSSION RIGHT BEFORE THE COMMISSION MEETING WITH THE BOLTON.

SO IF I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE THEM PRIOR TO THIS MEETING, I WOULD HAVE MADE THAT AMENDMENT AS A MINOR AMENDMENT IN THE CLARIFICATION OF LANGUAGE.

MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THE STUFF THAT'S BEEN PROPOSED TO US TODAY WAS BASED ON A CONVERSATION AND DISCUSSION WE HAD AS A COMMISSION PRIOR.

SO IF THERE'S SOME OF US WHO HAVE QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS AND MAYBE WANTED CHANGES THAT WE COULD HAVE PRESENTED TO PRIOR TO IF WE KNEW WE HAD THAT OPPORTUNITY.

SO WHY IS IT THAT ONE PERSON ON THE COMMISSION IS MAKING AMENDMENTS AND CHANGES TO

[02:10:05]

SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT FULLY DISCUSSED PRIOR BY THE COMMISSION? I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE QUESTION.

SO THERE'S SOME OF US WHO ARE READING THIS, MAYBE WE HAD SOME ADDITIONS AND IDEAS THAT WE MAY HAVE WANTED TO PRESENT TO YOU FOR INCLUSION, BUT WE DIDN'T BECAUSE THAT'S NOT HOW THE PROCESS GOES.

WE WERE WE HAVE THIS DISCUSSED.

WE DISCUSSED THESE ITEMS PRIOR TO THE COMMISSION.

YOU BROUGHT IT FORTH BASED ON WHAT WAS.

DISCUSSED AT THE LAST MEETING, ALLEGEDLY, AND NOT CHANGED, AND WE WOULD MAKE ANY CHANGES HERE AT THE COMMISSION MEETING VERSUS HAVING THEM DONE.

BY ONE PERSON, ONLY TWO PRESENT.

I DON'T BELIEVE ANY OF THEM IS COMMISSION IS GENOCIDE AND WAS PRESENT, IT MAY MAKE ANY PROPOSAL TONIGHT THE DUST WILL YOU NOT PRECLUDED FROM MAKING A DECISION? OBVIOUSLY, COMMISSION VOTING WAS THE ONE WHO REQUESTED THIS RESOLUTION AND HE WANTED A MINOR REVISION BASED ON HIS REVIEW.

WE HAD A DISCUSSION EARLIER TONIGHT.

A RESOLUTION OR ORDINANCE CAN BE MODIFIED BY THE COMMISSION AT THE PUBLIC HEARING OF ALL EVEN BEFORE THE HEARING.

SO BASICALLY, THIS REQUEST IS NOT ACTUALLY AS MODIFIED.

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT THE COMMISSION WILL ADDRESS.

YES, OK, BECAUSE LOOK NOW.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

SO, VICE MAYOR, THAT THAT IS WHAT IS BEING PROPOSED IS A PROPOSAL THAT IS NOT THE ACTUAL IS NOT AN ACTUAL CHANGE AT THIS POINT.

YES, I UNDERSTAND THAT.

BUT THAT WAS JUST A QUESTION IN YOUR ANSWER THAT I MADE A MOTION.

AND SECOND, WE NEED THE MOTION AND A SECOND TO DO WHAT? NOTION IS SECOND ON THE KEYS GRANT, GRANTING KEYS TO THE CITY AND PROCLAMATIONS AND THEN TO PROCEED WITH THE DISCUSSION FOR THIS ITEM.

I WOULD REQUEST A MOTION BASED ON THE MODIFICATION THAT YOU REQUESTED.

I'M SO SORRY, MADAM MAYOR.

THE JUDGE, JUST TO BE CLEAR, WHENEVER WHENEVER I GET MY AGENDA AND THE BACK UP, I HAVE A PREROGATIVE TO DISCUSS THE AGENDA AND ALL THE INFORMATION WITH THE CITY ATTORNEY AND HIS REVIEW OR THE CITY THE CITY MANAGER OR THE CITY ATTORNEY, AND MAKE A DESIRE TO MAKE ANY CHANGES OR ASK FOR ANY INFORMATION OR THAT WE ALL HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO THAT.

SO THIS IS NOT MY AREA BEING, YOU KNOW, DIRECTING THE CITY ATTORNEY TO DO SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, THAT THAT THAT, YOU KNOW, WE WOULD NOT DO.

THIS IS NOT A MINOR CHANGE.

AND IF WE ARE IF WE ARE IN OUR HOUR BACK UP, IT'S A B AND THEN IT IS PAGE TWO OF THE RESOLUTION TO.

SO.

SO THE CRITERIA FOR GIVING UP THE THE KEY, WHAT SHOULD ALSO SAY A KEY MAY BE A KEY, MAY ALSO BE AWARDED TO A PERSON WHO HAS PERFORMED AN ACT OF HEROISM OR MADE CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC OR ANY INDIVIDUAL DEEMED WORTHY OF A KEY TO THE CITY BY A MEMBER OF THE CITY COMMISSION.

I THOUGHT THAT CHANGE WAS NECESSARY BECAUSE LET'S SAY COMMISSIONER PLUGHOLE WANTS TO WANTS TO GIVE A KEY TO MARK SHIMMIES AND THE REST OF THE COMMISSION SAYS, OH, YOU KNOW, I DON'T WANNA GIVE A KEY TO MY ARGUMENT.

I THINK THAT COMMISSIONER PLUTARCO HAS.

ALL RIGHT.

TO WANT TO AWARD A KEY TO WHOMEVER SHE BELIEVES IS WORTHY OF IT.

RIGHT.

SO, YOU KNOW, THE THE LANGUAGE OF THE CITY ATTORNEY BROUGHT FORWARD DID NOT GIVE EACH COMMISSIONER THAT FLEXIBILITY.

[02:15:02]

IT WAS JUST VERY NARROW.

AND IT JUST SAYS A KEY MAY ALSO BE AWARDED TO A PERSON WHO HAS PERFORMED AN ACT OF HEROISM WHILE IN CITY LIMITS.

SO THEN WE'D ONLY BE GIVING KEYS TO LOCAL HEROES, SO TO SPEAK.

SO IT WOULDN'T WE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GIVE A KEY TO SOMEBODY IN WASHINGTON OR MAYBE THE PRIME MINISTER OF HAITI, YOU KNOW, WHO KNOWS IT? WELL, IT WOULD JUST BE LIKE LIMITED TO CITY LIMITS OR A DIGNITARY OR CELEBRITY VISITING CITY.

SO THEN IT'S THE LANGUAGE WAS ALSO NARROWED BECAUSE THEN WOULD ONLY BE GIVING IT TO PEOPLE WHO ARE COMING.

WHAT IF WHAT IF THEY ARE SICK? WHAT IF THEY HAVE WHAT IF THEY'RE NOT VISITING THE CITY? BUT WE FEEL LIKE WE WANT TO GIVE THEM A KEY.

LET'S LET'S SAY I WANT TO GIVE ALCEE HASTINGS THE KEY YOU'VE GOT VISITING THE CITY.

YOU KNOW, HE DIDN'T GIVE AN ACT OF HEROISM OR THAT SORT OF STUFF, SO HE WOULD NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE IT.

SO THAT IS WHY NOW THIS NEW LANGUAGE FOR IT TO BE EMBEDDED IN THE CRITERIA TO SEE THAT A KEY CAN BE GIVEN TO AN INDIVIDUAL THAT COMMISSIONER GARLAND FEELS LIKE IS WORTHY OF THE QUEEN OR COMMISSIONER PLATEAU'S FEELS LIKE THIS WORTHY OF THE KEY SO FAR WITH THE EMOTION IN PLACE RIGHT SO FAR WITHOUT THE NEW LANGUAGE.

I JUST WANT PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND WHY WHY THAT WAS MADE.

THE MAYOR MADE A BIG FUSS OF IT.

SO I HAD TO, YOU KNOW, DEFEND THE LANGUAGE SO THAT IS THERE A MOTION TO MOTION, A MOTION TO APPROVE AS.

IS THERE A SECOND? SECOND.

I KNOW THE INTERIM CITY ATTORNEY IS AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS, IN THE MEANTIME, I WILL OPEN THIS UP TO PUBLIC COMMENTS.

CITY CLERK, ARE THERE ANY COMMENTS? I SEE NOTHING ON IT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED.

BLOGGER.

NOW, THIS IS A GOOD THING, THIS IS A NICE THING TO GIVE THE PROCLAMATION OR A KEY TO THE CITY, SO LET'S NOT ARGUE ABOUT THE MINUTIA AND LET'S MAKE IT A NICE THING, KEEP IT A NICE THING.

AND I WOULD LIKE THE PREROGATIVE IF I CHOOSE SOMEONE THAT BECAUSE I'VE CHOSEN THAT PERSON FOR WHATEVER REASON, THAT MY COLLEAGUES WOULD RESPECT THAT DECISION AND VICE VERSA.

SO LET'S MOVE THIS ONE ALONG.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, VICE MAYOR.

THERE'S A QUESTION FOR US, THE ATTORNEY, THAT'S THE ATTORNEY WHEN WE HAVE A MOTION.

AND THE SECOND IS THEY'RE REQUIRED TO HAVE A DISCUSSION OR IS THAT RIGHT, PARLIAMENTARY OR ORDER BASED ON RULES THAT THIS COMMISSION HAD USED PRIOR TO ME BECOME INTERIM CITY ATTORNEY.

YOU GET EMOTIONAL.

SECOND, IN YOUR DISCUSSION OF THE DISCUSSION, OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE A VOTE, BUT BECAUSE OF THE VOTE, SHALL WE ALLOW THE PUBLIC TO MAKE OTHER COMMENTS PRIOR TO THE.

SO WE'RE GOING HISTORICALLY WHERE WE ALLOW DISCUSSION AMONG OURSELVES AND NOT REGARDING THAT, THE PUBLIC I'M TALKING ABOUT AMONG OURSELVES, ONCE EMOTION IS MADE IN A SECOND IS MADE IS SHOULD HAVE NOT JUST GO UP FOR A VOTE DOWN OR UP.

IT IS WITHIN THE DISCRETION OF THE COMMISSION.

IF THE COMMISSION WANT TO HAVE DISCUSSIONS, ACTUALLY DELAY DISCUSS THE COMMISSION.

DON'T WANT TO DISCUSS.

YOU CAN HAVE A VOTE UP AND DOWN.

BUT BUT DOES IT BREAK PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURES IF WE HAVE IT UP FOR DISCUSSION VERSUS JUST A VOTE UP OR DOWN AFTER A SECOND? FOLLOW PROCEDURE STANDPOINT, YOU MAKE A MOTION, YOU SECOND AND PERMIT DISCUSSION.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE? SUSPICION IS IS CLEARLY WITHIN THE DISCRETION OF THE COMMISSION.

IF YOU SAY, OK, SO WE HAVE A COMMISSION THAT LIKES TO TALK ELVAN, RIGHT.

IF PEOPLE WISH TO NOT SPEAK, THEN THEN WE MOVE FASTER.

BUT PEOPLE HAVE THINGS TO ASK QUESTIONS AND THEN THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO SPEAK BECAUSE WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASK QUESTIONS, TO KNOW WHAT WE'RE VOTING ON, WHETHER WE FOLLOW RULES.

SO I'M JUST GONNA MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE FOLLOWING THE RULES AND NOT THOSE RULES

[02:20:01]

ARE THAT EVERYBODY GETS ONE ROUND TO SPEAK AFTER EVERYONE HAS HAD A CHANCE TO SPEAK IF THEY WISH TO SPEAK A SECOND TIME.

WE HAVE ALLOWED IT AT THE SECOND ROUND.

WE DON'T I DEPENDING ON THE TOPIC, BECAUSE WE TRY TO BE FAIR TO LET PEOPLE HAVE THEIR ABILITY TO SPEAK WHILE NOT REITERATING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

THEN WE DON'T GO TO THE THIRD ROUND.

WE JUST PROCEED.

WE CALL THE CORE.

IF SOMEBODY CALLS A QUESTION, THAT IS ALSO WHAT THE COMMISSION CAN DO AFTER THE FIRST ROUND OF COMMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE.

THAT ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, VICE MAYOR.

I'LL TAKE THAT, AS I PREVIOUSLY SAID, YES TO A CITY ATTORNEY.

COMMISSIONER BOLDEN.

OK, JUST JUST TO CLARIFY THAT POINT, IT IS IT IS AN OUR IT IS IN OUR CODE THAT WE DISCUSS EACH ITEM AND THAT EACH PERSON HAS FIVE MINUTES AND THAT THE MAYOR CAN INSTITUTE A FILIBUSTER RULE, WHICH IS NEVER WHICH HAS NEVER DONE SO.

THAT'S THE ONLY GOOD THING I'D SAY ABOUT HER.

BUT I WOULD I WOULD LIKE TO TO SAY, THOUGH, THAT SINCE THIS IS THIS WAS MY IDEA, I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF THE IF MY COLLEAGUES GIVE ME THE COURTESY OF REQUESTING THE FIRST KEY, BECAUSE I THINK, YOU KNOW, IT'S JUST A NICE THING TO DO FOR A NICE PERSON.

SO I WOULD APPRECIATE THAT.

IF ANYBODY NOBODY HAS ANY OBJECTIONS TO THAT, THEN THE CITY CLERK RECORD THAT I MADE A REQUEST TO HAVE THE FIRST KEY PRESENTED AND THE COMMISSION HAD CONSENSUS ON THE ITEM.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS.

IT HAS BEEN NOTED.

AS IF NO OTHER QUESTIONS I WOULD LIKE TO ASK.

THERE'S SOMETHING WHEN IT COMES, WE DON'T HAVE ANYTHING ON THE POLICY FOR AWARDING A CITY.

HOW MANY WILL BE DONE? A COMMISSION MEETING AT OUR LAST COMMISSION MEETING, IT WAS MADE VERY CLEAR THAT THERE'S ONLY THREE PROCLAMATION'S PER PERSON FOR A COMMISSION MEETING.

MY QUESTION FOR THIS COMMISSION IS, WHAT IS THE DETERMINATION ARE THE SAME AS PROCLAMATION'S? SO IS IT A TOTAL OF THREE? IS IT A TOTAL OF THREE KEYS AND THREE PROCLAMATIONS FOR MEETING? OR HOW IS THIS? PROPOSED BY THE COMMISSION FOR ITS DESIRE ON THAT ONE.

THE GARLAND, YEAH, I MEAN, I VIEW THE KEY TO THE CITY AS BEING A RARE EVENT, THAT'S AT LEAST WHAT I HOPE IT WOULD BE.

IT'S USUALLY SOMETHING THAT'S GIVEN TO DIGNITARIES OR TO MAYBE, YOU KNOW, A POLICE OFFICER THAT SAVES A LIFE, A FIREFIGHTER SAVES A LIFE.

SOME EXTRAORDINARY EVENTS.

I WOULD THINK IT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT'S ISSUED VERY RARELY.

AND I'M OPEN TO HEARING WHAT OTHER COMMISSIONERS HAVE TO SAY.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER.

I HAVE NO COMMENTS.

RAISE YOUR HAND, MR. BOLTON.

GO AHEAD.

YEAH, I HAVE THE SAME SENTIMENT AS COMMISSIONER GARLAND THAT.

AT LEAST IN MY MIND, KEYSTART CITY IS NOT NECESSARILY SOMETHING THAT YOU DO EVERY DAY AND JUST GIVE TO ANYONE.

SO EVEN THOUGH THE LANGUAGE ALLOWS YOU TO REQUEST THE KEY TO THE CITY, SOMEBODY IN YOUR DISCRETION, YOU KNOW, I THINK THAT IT IS AN HONOR FOR SOMEONE TO GET A KEY TO THE CITY.

SO AND IT'S THE SAME THING FOR PROCLAMATION'S.

I THINK IN MY TIME HERE, I'VE PROBABLY GIVEN INDIVIDUALS THREE PROCLAMATION'S.

MY PROPAGATIONS ARE ABOUT, YOU KNOW, EVENTS OR TIME IN HISTORY OR THAT SORT OF STUFF.

SO.

SO IF IT IF IT IS THE DESIRE, IF YOU HAVE A DESIRE TO LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF KIDS, THEN WE CAN HEAR YOUR DESIRE FOR THE AMOUNT OF KIDS.

AND LET'S SEE, THAT'S SOMETHING THAT OUR COLLEAGUES ARE AMENABLE TO.

BUT I DON'T HAVE A NUMBER RIGHT NOW.

I DON'T HAVE A NUMBER, I'M JUST TRYING TO HAVE US DISCUSS IT WHILE WE'RE IN THE PLANNING STAGES.

SO THERE'S NOBODY COMPLAINING AT A LATER DATE THAT SOMEBODY ONE JUST GAVE FIVE KEYS, ANOTHER PERSON, ANOTHER DISTRICT DIDN'T GIVE ANY OR OR.

[02:25:01]

WE'VE TAKEN UP A WHOLE COMMISSION MEETING WITH KEYS AND WE DIDN'T LIMIT IT BECAUSE WE HAD EVERYBODY HAD THREE PROCLAMATIONS THA DAY ON TOP OF FOUR ITEMS THAT WE'RE PUTTING ON.

SO I'M JUST TRYING TO WHILE WE'RE DISCUSSING THINGS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE PUTTING IN OUR PROCEDURES THE WAY WE FEEL IS BEST SUITED AND NOT TO HAVE ANY ISSUES IN THE FUTURE.

BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS, I DON'T THINK IT'S IT'S IT SHOULD BE BASED ON LIKE A DISTRICT OR, YOU KNOW, WHO'S GIVING A KEY OR THAT'S THE STUFF I FIND WHEN ALL OF IT WOULD WOULD BE UNIFIED AND I'D BE HAPPY TO GIVE SOMEBODY A KEY IRRESPECTIVE OF WHO THEY ARE.

SO.

WELL, I AGREE WITH YOU, I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT, I JUST AM TRYING TO BRING THAT NOW TO WORK IT THROUGH NOW SO WE DON'T HAVE ANY ISSUES IN THE FUTURE, THAT'S ALL.

AND IF THERE'S NO CONCERN ABOUT IT, THAT'S FINE.

AND I SEE I HEAR WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.

SO WE'RE NOT GOING TO MOVE ON TO THIS WHERE YOU HAVE YOUR HANDS UP.

WHY DON'T WE JUST GIVE A CLEAR RECORDER AND MAYOR AT LARGE AND PERHAPS WHEN WE ARE GOING AT LARGE FOR THE CITY AS COMMISSIONERS, FOR EVERYONE TO VOTE FOR US, WE CAN PROBABLY JUST GIVE ONE TO EVERYONE, ONE EACH.

SO ANY PARTICULAR PERSON, NO MATTER WHAT DISTRICT THEY'RE ON, AND WE'RE JUST ACKNOWLEDGING THAT PERSON FOR DOING THEIR ROLE.

AS FAR AS A BUSINESS OWNER THAT HAS BEEN IN TAMRAT FOR 20, 30 YEARS OR A HOMEOWNER HAS BEEN WITH US FOR 30 OR 50 YEARS, WHATEVER THE CASE IS.

BUT THIS THIS SUBJECT IS TAKING WAY TOO LONG AND WE NEED TO MOVE FORWARD WITH IT SO WE CAN JUST VOTE ON THE AMENDED PORTION OF IT OR A IT WAS WRITTEN TO US, THAT WE REALLY GREAT.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR OPINION.

SO I HEAR THAT THERE'S NO DESIRE TO MAKE ANY RESTRICTIONS AT THIS TIME, THERE IS A GOOD FAITH BELIEF THAT THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT'S GOING TO BE GIVEN OUT LIKE CANDY IN OUR COMMISSION MEETINGS, BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO TREAT IT WITH HONOR AND RESPECT THAT WE BELIEVE THAT'S WHAT WE'RE PUTTING FORTH ON THIS PLATFORM.

NEWS THE CITY ABOUT HAVING A HIGH HONOR.

SO THERE'S NO OTHER DISCUSSION ON THAT PART.

THAT IS FINE.

I DO HAVE OTHER QUESTIONS.

COMMISSIONER BOLTON, IS IT WISHING TO.

I KNOW YOU HAVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS AND YOU HAVE THE PREROGATIVE TO ASK THEM, BUT AFTER YOUR QUESTIONS, I WOULD JUST LIKE TO MAKE SURE THAT IT'S ON THE RECORD THAT MY COLLEAGUES DO NOT HAVE ANY ISSUES WITH ME REQUESTING THE FIRST KEY.

I THINK WE'RE READY TO SAY NO TO THAT.

SO IT'S KEYNOTED IS NOTED AGAIN FOR THE SECOND TIME.

I THINK IT SHOULD BE DONE RANDOMLY.

LIKE AS WE VOTE RANDOMLY, WE CAN CITY CLERK AND JUST SPIN THE WHEEL, WHOEVER GETS IT FIRST.

I HAVE A FEELING THAT THE GENTLEMAN FROM BOLTON HAS SOMEBODY HE IS READY TO AWARD THE KEY.

AND SO IT'S THAT'S WHY I'M SAYING IT'S AN OPEN THING HERE.

IT'S NOT LIMITED TO ONE PERSON PER PERSON ON THE COMMISSION.

SO WE'LL SEE HOW IT FLOWS ON THAT ONE.

SO MY OTHER QUESTION IS GOING DOWN TO THE POLICY FOR GRANTING CITY PROCLAMATION'S.

SO THERE'S SOMETHING THAT WAS PUT IN HERE THAT WE NEVER DISCUSSED AND I'M CURIOUS ABOUT, THERE'S BEEN A LIMITATION OF TIME REQUESTS ON PROCLAMATION'S BEING AT LEAST FOUR WEEKS FOR THE PUBLIC TO PRESENT THE REQUEST FOR THE PROCLAMATION'S PUBLIC.

IT'S SECTION THREE OF THE PUBLIC REQUEST.

A MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC MAY ALSO MAKE A REQUEST FOR A PROCLAMATION TO THE CITY.

THE REQUEST MUST BE MADE FOUR WEEKS PRIOR TO THE MEETING, AND I'M NOT SURE WHY THERE HAS BEEN THIS TIME FRAME PUT ON THERE.

I OFTEN GET PROCLAMATION REQUESTS, WHETHER IT'S FOR AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION, WHETHER IT'S FOR AMERICAN RED CROSS OR THE ONE THAT I JUST GOT ON MY DESK TODAY FOR GAMBLING TO TO MAKE A PROCLAMATION FOR THAT WHICH ARE THINGS THAT GO ON THE COMMISSION AND THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE READ AS WE HAD DISCUSSED.

SO I'M NOT SURE WHY WE'RE PUTTING A TIMEFRAME ON THEIR.

IS THERE IS THERE A REASON THAT THIS WAS PUT IN CITY ATTORNEY? NO, JUST JUST GIVING STAFF AN OPPORTUNITY TO DRAFT APPROPRIATE PROCLAMATION.

AGAIN, THAT TIME FRAME IS WITHIN THE DISCRETION OF THE COMMISSION.

YOU WANT NO TIMEFRAME? I'M FINE WITH IT.

OK, IS UP TO THE DEFICIT COMMISSION.

IT'S NOT WHAT YOU WANT ME A TIMEFRAME FOR.

WHAT THEY WANTED IN WAS A REQUEST THAT IF SAVING THE PUBLIC FROM THE PUBLIC WISHES TO ASK FOR A PROCLAMATION LIKE THE AMERICAN RED CROSS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE ASKED AT LEAST FOUR WEEKS AHEAD OF TIME, I DON'T THINK THAT THERE'S A NEED FOR THAT SPECIFIC TIME AND THE TIME FRAME DOESN'T APPLY TO.

[02:30:01]

I KNOW, I KNOW IT DOESN'T, I KNOW IT DOESN'T, BUT FOR EXAMPLE, OF THE AMERICAN RED CROSS, THEY WANTED SOMETHING IN THERE DOING SOMETHING FOR FROM MARCH, IF THEY ONLY GOT IT, AT LEAST IF THEY GET TO SIX DAYS BEFORE THE AGENDA, SIX BUSINESS DAYS AND THEY GET IT ON TIME FOR THE AGENDA AND THERE'S ROOM ON THE AGENDA, I DON'T SEE WHY WE HAVE TO BE FORCING AN OUTSIDE PARTY, SEEKING FOR PROCLAMATION OF THE CITY'S GOING TO DO ONE TO MAKE IT AT LEAST FOUR WEEKS, PUTTING RULES AND REGULATIONS ON WHO'S GOING TO FOLLOW THAT.

SO THAT'S WHERE I'M JUST.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE IT CAME FROM.

WE NEVER DISCUSSED THIS BEFORE, SO I'M BRINGING IT UP BECAUSE IT'S BEEN BEFORE US NOW.

IT WAS WRITTEN IN HERE FOR SOME REASON.

SO COMMISSION HAS NO ISSUE WITH IT, THEN WE CAN JUST TAKE OUT.

YOU COULD JUST BE AT LEAST WITH SUFFICIENT TIME TO MAKE IT TO THE NEXT AVAILABLE AGENDA.

OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT.

I'LL GET COMFORTABLE WITH LANGUAGE LIKE SIX DAYS, AND THAT'S A FACT.

SO SIX BUSINESSES HAS TO FIT THE.

IT'S THE SAME IT'S THE SAME, RIGHT, THAT WE HAVE TO PUT THINGS ON THE AGENDA, GIVING THE PUBLIC THE SAME, RIGHT? CORRECT.

SO I'M ALL FOR LANGUAGE THAT SIX DAYS.

OK, SO YOU WILL YOU BE AMENDING YOUR MOTION? LET'S JUST HEAR ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE FIRST AND THEN WE'LL DO ONE AMENDMENT THAT IS.

MY QUESTION, AND I'M PRESUMING THAT WHEN THE KEYS ARE MADE, THE EXCEPTION FOR THE KEYS SHALL NOT BE GRANTED TO ANYONE CONVICTED OF A FELONY OR UNDER INDICTMENT FOR POTENTIAL VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL LAWS.

I BELIEVE THAT'S GOING TO BE IN THE HANDS OF THE PERSON WHO'S MAKING THE.

REQUEST FOR THE KEY THAT THEY WILL DO THAT BACKGROUND.

THE ATTORNEYS THAT WHAT IS THE PROPOSAL BUY HERE? YEAH, YEAH, I MEAN, IF IF OBVIOUSLY GOOGLE SOME TIME COULD REVEAL INFORMATION ABOUT THIS INDIVIDUAL ALSO, YOU KNOW, THERE'S NO REQUIREMENT OF MILITARY BACKGROUND SEARCH BECAUSE THIS, OF COURSE, IS A FISCAL IMPACT.

IF OBVIOUSLY INFORMATION COME TO THE CITY, ANY COMMISSIONER, YOU KNOW, THEN, YOU KNOW, THIS PROVISION WILL APPLY.

BUT THERE'S NO REQUIREMENT TO DO A BACKGROUND SEARCH ON ANYONE.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THEY HAVE TO GO OUT AND DO A FULL BACKGROUND.

IT'S UP TO THE COMMISSIONER WHO IS REPRESENTING THE PERSON OR ENTITY FOR THE KEY THAT THEY WILL HAVE DONE THEIR DUE DILIGENCE.

AND THAT'S HOW SECTION TWO OF THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT.

YOU KNOW, IF THE COMMISSION WANT TO CONDUCT DUE DILIGENCE ON THAT INDIVIDUAL, FINE.

BUT IT'S NOT AN AFFIRMATIVE REQUIREMENT ON THE COMMISSIONER TO DO THAT.

OK.

THIS IS THESE ARE JUST THINGS THAT WERE NOT DISCUSSED WHEN THIS WAS BROUGHT FORTH, SO I'M JUST ASKING.

ANYTHING ELSE FROM AT THE SCENE? NOTHING FROM ANYONE ELSE, COMMISSIONER BOLTON.

I, I FURTHER AMEND MY MOTION TO HAVE COMMISSIONER GARLAND BOLTON AND GIVE THE FIRST KEY TO THE CITY AND TO ALSO PROVIDE CHANGES TO THE AMOUNT OF DAYS THAT THE PUBLIC CAN GIVE PROCLAMATIONS CHANGING IN SOME FOUR WEEKS TO SIX DAYS BACK IN THE AMENDMENT.

THE MOTION WAS COMMISSIONER GARLAND, IS THAT CORRECT? YES.

COMMISSIONER GARLAND, DO YOU ACCEPT THE FRIENDLY AMENDMENT OR THE AMENDMENT TO THE MOTION? CAN YOU REPEAT THAT? THE COMMISSIONER BOLTON, CAN YOU SHOW YOURSELF AS WELL? I, I, I'M HERE.

I'M, I'M NOT I'M ON THE STREET.

THAT'S THE TECHNICAL LEVEL THAT I WAS I DIDN'T SEE THE LEVEL THAT YOU ARE.

THERE WILL BE JAMES, JAMES, JAMES ON MY ON THE SCREEN.

YOU'RE ON ONE OF THE SCREENS OVER ON MY SIDE.

USUALLY THIS HAPPENS WHEN THERE'S ISSUES OF BANDWIDTH.

THE ONLY THING WE CAN REALLY TRY IS IF THERE IS A BREAK JUST TO SORT OF HAVE YOU WRITTEN UP IN THE LATER TIME.

OK, AND THAT'S FINE.

CAN YOU JUST REPEAT THE AMENDED MOTION? I DON'T MIND YOU BEING THE FIRST ONE.

IT WAS YOUR IDEA.

YOU KNOW, GIVE YOURSELF A PAT ON THE BACK FOR THAT.

AND I'M FOLLOWING IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS, GARLAND.

I HOPE SO.

A KEY TO THE CITY MAY BE AWARDED TO A PERSON WHO HAS PERFORMED AN ACT OF TERRORISM OR MADE CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC OR ANY INDIVIDUAL DEEMED WORTHY OF A KEY TO THE CITY BY A MEMBER OF THE CITY COMMISSION.

[02:35:01]

THE FIRST KEY WILL BE GRANTED BY COMMISSIONER GARLAND BOLTON.

AND AS IT RELATES TO PROCLAMATION'S, IT WILL NOT BE THE PUBLIC WILL NOT HAVE A FLOOR, DOES NOT HAVE TO GIVE A FOUR WEEK NOTICE FO COMMISSION.

THEY CAN REQUEST A PROCLAMATION IN SIX DAYS.

YEAH, I MEAN, I'M FINE WITH THAT, I'M FINE WITH THAT.

I DON'T KNOW THAT WE NEED TO HAVE IT CODIFIED THAT YOU'RE THE FIRST ONE, BUT IF THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT, THAT'S WHAT I THINK CAN MAKE A SET OF TWO MOTION.

YOU CAN MUCH A SECOND ON THE FLOOR IF THE MOTION THE SECOND MOTION DOESN'T HAPPEN.

YES, YOU WANT TO SAY SOMETHING? A COMMISSION OF ISD, IF YOU WANT TO ADD IT TO THE MOTION.

BUT YOU HAVE A MOTION TO SAY HE CANNOT MAKE A FRIENDLY AMENDMENT TO MY MOTION.

OK, YOU'VE BEEN ADVISED THAT THERE WILL BE NO ACCEPTING OF ANY FRIENDLY AMENDMENTS TO THE MOTION.

SO I HAVE NOT HEARD THAT.

THANK YOU.

THIS MOTION DOES NOT PASS.

AND WE'LL COME BACK TO YOU FOR WHAT? YOUR MOTION OR FOR THAT MATTER TO.

SO, YES, I KNOW MR. BOLTON.

YES, COMMISSIONER PACHO.

YES.

YES.

THE MOTION PASSES FOUR TO ONE.

THERE'S NO OTHER DISCUSSION OR NO OTHER MOTIONS FOR THE TOPIC AT THIS TIME, IT IS NINE THIRTY SEVEN.

WE WILL BE TAKING A BREAK.

WE ARE IN RECESS UNTIL NINE FIFTY.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS NINE FIFTY.

WE ARE BACK ON THE RECORD, CITY CLERK, WILL YOU PLEASE CONFIRM THAT WE ARE ALL PRESENT, PLEASE? YES, MR. BOLTON, I'M HERE.

THANK YOU.

GARLAND.

I'M HERE, VICE CHAIRMAN MR. GARLAND SCREEN, AND THEY ARE COMING AS I HAVE ONE QUICK ANNOUNCEMENT, I KNOW I MADE A COMMENT DURING MY REPORTS THAT THERE WAS BE A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION FOR OUR ONE HUNDRED YEAR YOUNG ARMY VETERAN.

AND DURING THE BREAK, I WAS ADVISED THAT AS MUCH AS THE BIRTHDAY GENTLEMAN APPRECIATES THE IDEA OF CELEBRATING, HE HAS ASKED THAT THERE BE NO FESTIVITIES.

SO THEREFORE THERE WILL BE NO FESTIVITIES TOMORROW.

MOVING ON NOW, WE WILL GO TO NEW ORLEANS FOR ITS INTENT TO ENFORCE THIS ORDINANCE.

GOOD EVENING, MADAM VICE MAYOR.

COMMISSIONERS.

YES, THIS IS TO REVISE THE CITY'S FLOOD ORDINANCE DUE TO THE MANDATES OF THE

[02:40:03]

FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

JUST A LITTLE BIT BACKGROUND INFORMATION, APPROXIMATELY 50 TO 52 PERCENT OF BUILDINGS IN TAMARACK ARE IN A FLOOD ZONE.

TAMARA PARTICIPATES IN THE NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM DUE TO TAMARA'S PARTICIPATION WHERE A FEMA GRANT ELIGIBLE DUE TO THE CITY'S EFFORTS.

OUR PROPERTY OWNERS RECEIVE A 20 PERCENT DISCOUNT ON MANDATORY FLOOD INSURANCE AND A 10 PERCENT DISCOUNT ON PREFERRED RISK FLOOD INSURANCE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

CHANGES IN THE FLOOD PLAIN ORDINANCE ARE PROMULGATED BY NFIP IN THE STATE FLOODPLAIN MANAGEMENT OFFICE.

THERE ARE THREE THERE ARE BASICALLY THREE CHANGES IN AGRICULTURAL AREAS MANUFACTURED IN MOBILE HOMES AND THE EDGE ONE FOO REGULATION ABOVE THE BASE FLOOD ELEVATION.

NEXT SLIDE.

AGRICULTURAL AREAS CHANGED TO ALLOW AGRICULTURAL AREAS, EXEMPTIONS AND FLOOD PROOFING MITIGATION.

THERE IS NO AGRICULTURAL AREAS IN TERROR, SO THERE'S NO MONETARY EFFECT NEXT JULY.

MANUFACTURED MOBILE HOMES CHANGED FROM THIRTY SIX INCH MINIMUM ELEVATION TO OTHER CONSTRUCTION STANDARDS, WHICH IS THE BAS FLOOD ELEVATION PLUS ONE FOOT, THERE'S NO MANUFACTURED OR MOBILE HOMES IN TAMARACK.

SO AGAIN, THERE'S NO MONETARY EFFECT FOR US.

NEXT SLIDE TO INCREASE THE ELEVATION REQUIREMENT, NEW CONSTRUCTION IN THE FLOOD ZONE MUST BE ELEVATED ONE FOOT HIGHER THAN THE BASE FLOOD ELEVATION.

THIS IS REQUESTED BY THE STATE FLOODPLAIN MANAGEMENT OFFICE, WHICH COINCIDES WITH THE FLORIDA BUILDING CODE REQUIREMENTS.

THERE'S NO MONETARY EFFECT BECAUSE IT'S ALREADY IN THE BUILDING CODE.

NEXT FLIGHT.

A LITTLE FLOOD RELATED ITEMS, 20 TWENTY ONE IS OUR FIVE YEAR COMMUNITY RATING SYSTEM REVIEW, WHICH IS CONDUCTED BY THE INSURANCE SERVICE SERVICES OFFICE, PUBLIC SERVICE, PARKS AND RECREATION, THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, PEIO COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT ALL PARTICIPATE IN MAINTAINING OUR CLASSICS CREDIT RATING.

NEXT FLIGHT.

QUESTIONS, DO I HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

BEFORE WE GO TO THE COMMISSION QUESTIONS, CITY CLERK, ARE THERE ANY PUBLIC COMMENTS? WE DO NOT HAVE ANY PUBLIC COMMENTS.

THANK YOU FOR THE MOTION TO APPROVE.

WE ALREADY HAVE THAT.

SO NOT SEEING A QUESTION, COMMISSIONER BOLTON, WITH GEORGE, DOES THIS HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH TOM BLAKE'S WANTING TO NOW BEING ON A NEW ZONING FLOODS UNDER A NEW FLOOD ZONE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT OR.

NO, NO, THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT OR DOES IT? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? THAT THERE ARE NO OTHER QUESTIONS OR PERMISSION AT ALL? THANK YOU.

YES, BUT MR. GARLAND.

YES, MR. FLACCO.

YES, I CAN HEAR THIS.

YES.

AND THEY ARE GOING AS FAST AS IT IS ON THEIR OWN.

CAN WE SEE THAT ANYONE CAN PLEASE MUTE AS WE GO BACK TO THE NEXT ITEM? WE'RE NOW MOVING TO NINE B, THE O TO FOUR FOR SEVEN ORDINANCE REQUIRING ELECTRIC

[9.b. TO2447 - Ordinance requiring Electric Charging Stations in all multifamily and non-residential new development]

CHARGING STATIONS AND ALL MULTIFAMILY AND NON RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT ENGINES RETURNING.

PLEASE BE THE TITLE FOR THE RECORD.

IN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER AT FLORIDA IN CHAPTER 10, I'M SICK OF CODE OF ORDERS ENTITLED LAND DEVELOPMENT CALLED, I MADE AN ARTICLE FOR ENTITLED DEVELOPMENT DESIGN STANDARDS, SPECIFICALLY MADE IN SECTION TEN THIRTY FOUR POINT THREE ENTITLED ALL PARKING LOHRI BY CRANE IN THE THREE DAY PARKING FARMERS UNTIL SIX A.M.. THE CONSTRUCTION DEFINITION SECTION SIX POINT THREE AND FIVE OTHERS COUNTING HOW MUCH TV IS ON.

IT'S VERY DISTRACTING.

CAN YOU FACE A NEW DEFINITION OF ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATION LIFE, A CODIFICATION, LESS CONFLICT AND POSSIBILITY.

IN FACT, A BIT LIKE A REMEMBER.

THANK YOU.

AN EMOTIONAL SECOND.

OF THE.

SECOND, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

[02:45:02]

WE'LL NOW HAVE VACCINE CALLAWAY, OUR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR, PROVIDE A BRIEF PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

GOOD EVENING AGAIN, MAXINE CALLAWAY, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.

QUICKLY, THE NEXT SLIDE, JAMES.

GAMESPY ADVANCE TO THE NEXT LINE.

JUST WANT TO GIVE YOU A BACKGROUND AS TO WHY WE'RE HAVING THIS DISCUSSION NOW AND WHY AN ORDINANCE OF THIS NATURE IS RELEVANT AN NEEDED AT THIS TIME, JUST ABOUT BACKGROUND AND SOME OF THE THINGS THAT ARE HAPPENING.

OF COURSE, WE KNOW THAT ELECTRIC VEHICLE SALES HAVE INCREASED BY ALMOST 50 PERCENT SINCE 2016.

IN FACT, THEY ACCOUNT FOR ABOUT A MILLION OF THE ALL VEHICLE SALES THAT WE HAVE SINCE THEN.

AND THAT HAS REALLY TRIGGERED THE NEED FOR INFRASTRUCTURE THROUGHOUT OUR NATION.

WE ALSO KNOW THAT A REGULAR GASOLINE POWERED VEHICLES, THEY EMIT ABOUT 60 PERCENT MORE HARMFUL CARBON DIOXIDE INTO THE ATMOSPHERE.

AND SO THERE IS GREATER ATTENTION THAT'S BEING PAID TO THIS BOTH LOCALLY AND ON THE NATIONAL LEVEL.

WE KNOW THAT SOUTHEAST FLORIDA REGIONAL CLIMATE CHANGE COMPACT HAS POLICIES AND PLANNING POLICIES THAT REALLY PROMOTE EFFECTIVE CLIMATE CHANGE.

AND THEY ARE ALSO PROVIDING RESOURCES TO CITIES THAT ARE SEEKING TO ENHANCE THEIR ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE.

NEXT SLIDE.

WE KNOW THAT CLIMATE RESILIENCY AND GREEN POLICY INITIATIVES, THOSE HAVE TAKEN CENTER STAGE ON BOTH THE NATIONAL AND REGIONAL LEVEL AND IN SOUTH FLORIDA AS WELL.

BROWARD COUNTY RECENTLY ADOPTED AS A PART OF THE LAND USE PLAN THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE INFRASTRUCTURE STRATEGY, JUST TO PROMOTE THAT COUNTYWIDE SOUTH FLORIDA REGIONAL PLANNING COUNCIL ALSO HAVE AN EV READY BROWARD INITIATIVE THAT REALLY CREATES PUBLIC CONFIDENCE IN ELECTRIC TRANSPORTATION AND IT FACILITATE CHARGIN INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION ON A COUNTY LEVEL.

WE ALSO KNOW THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT RECENTLY THERE'S AN EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT PLEDGE TO REPLACE IN THE US GOVERNMENT FLEET BY ELECTRIC VEHICLES AND ALSO PLEDGE TO BUILD ABOUT FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND EV CHARGING STATIONS, NEW INFRASTRUCTURE ON THE NATIONAL LEVEL.

SO THOSE ARE SOME OF THE CONVERSATIONS THAT ARE HAPPENING NOW THAT IS REALLY FORCED THE CITY TO LOOK AT THIS ISSUE.

WE CURRENTLY DO NOT HAVE ANY STANDARDS OR CRITERIA IN OUR CODE THAT SPEAKS TO ELECTRIC VEHICLE OR ELECTRIC CHARGING STATIONS.

SO HENCE THE REASON FOR THIS AMENDMENT, THINGS LIKE.

SO ESSENTIALLY, WHAT WE'RE DOING IS VERY SIMPLE, WE ARE AMENDING SECTION 10, DASH FOUR POINT THREE, WHICH IS ARE OFF STREET PARKING AND LOADING SECTION.

AND IN THAT SECTION WE ARE PUT IT IN A SUBSECTION G THAT SPEAKS THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE.

ESSENTIALLY, THAT NEW SECTION WILL REQUIRE FOR ALL NEW DEVELOPMENT WITH 20 OR MORE PARKING SPACES TO INSTALL ELECTRIC VEHICLE INFRASTRUCTURE.

NEXT LINE.

THE S.

ALSO J ONE, WHICH IS THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE PARKING REQUIREMENTS, SPEAKS TO WHAT WE EXPECT THESE STATIONS TO LOOK LIKE.

IT TALKS ABOUT THE SIGNAGE THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE, WHAT DEVICE NEEDS TO BE INCLUDED AT EACH STATION.

AND IT SPEAKS TO REQUIRED SCREENING.

SO IT'S NOT VISIBLE FROM THE PUBLIC RIGHT OF WAY, DEPENDING ON WHERE THE STATION IS LOCATED NEXT.

SECTION ONE, SUBSECTION ONE SPEAKS TO THE CALCULATION OF ELECTRIC VEHICLE IS REQUIRED, SO ESSENTIALLY, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SINGL FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT, BECAUSE THERE IS AN EXPECTATION THAT THOSE PROPERTY CAN INSTALL THEIR OWN STATION.

BUT EVERY OTHER ZONING DISTRICT IN THE CITY WOULD BE REQUIRED FOR NEW DEVELOPMENT, OVER 20 PARKING SPACES TO INCLUDE ELECTRIC VEHICLE PARKING STALLS CALCULATED AT A MINIMUM OF 20 PERCENT OF THE REQUIRED PARKING, BUT NO LESS THAN ONE PARKING STALL, WHICH IS AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATION AGAIN FOR RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY SUCH AS OUR MULTIFAMILY PROPERTIES.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE ARE LIMITED ONLY FOR THE BUILDING RESIDENTS.

SO THE USE OF THOSE CHARGING STATION WOULD ONLY BE FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE OCCUPYING THAT MULTIFAMILY DEVELOPMENT AND FLINT.

WE'VE ALSO INCLUDED SOME REQUIREMENTS FOR EXISTING DEVELOPMENTS.

IF YOU'RE AN EXISTING DEVELOPMENT AND YOU ARE DOING AN UPGRADE THAT ADDS 20 OR MORE PARKING SPACES TO THAT UPGRADE, THEN YOU WOULD BE REQUIRED TO COMPLY CONSISTENT WITH THE NEW DEVELOPMENT REQUIREMENT.

NEXT LINE.

JUST TO MAKE SURE THE CODE IS USER-FRIENDLY AND IT DEFINES ALL THE TERMS ARE ALSO AMENDED THE DEFINITION SECTION OF THE CODE TO DEFINE ELECTRIC VEHICLE, ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING LEVEL.

[02:50:01]

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

ELECTRIC VEHICLE, PARKING SPACES AND ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATION TO THOSE ARE THE NEW DEFINITIONS THAT WERE INCORPORATED AS A PART OF THE DEFINITION SECTION OF THE NEXT.

TO THE FINAL SLIDE, SAYS THE OFFICE, OF COURSE, RECOMMENDED APPROVAL OF THIS ORDINANCE TONIGHT ON FIRST READING AND WOULD BE BEFORE YOU AGAIN ON SECOND READING AT THE NEXT MEETING.

AND THAT ENDS MY PRESENTATION.

I'LL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE AT THIS TIME.

JAMES, YOU CAN GO TO THE QUESTIONS LIKE THANK YOU.

THIS IS JUST A YES OR NO QUESTION MAKES MAXINE.

DO WE HAVE PLANS TO TRANSITION OUR VEHICLES, CITY VEHICLES FROM GAS TO ELECTRIC IN THE NEAR FUTURE ARE BEING PLANNED JUST A YES OR NO QUESTION, COMMISSIONER.

I'LL THE JACK IF YOU WANT.

THAT'S CONCERNING THE CITY FLEET.

VICE MAYOR, AT THIS POINT IN TIME, WE ARE NOT THAT IT'S A IT'S A COST ANALYSIS TYPE OF THING OR THEY'RE SO EXPENSIVE AT THIS POINT IN TIME VERSUS THE TIME THE AMOUNT OF MILES THAT WE PUT ON, WE DON'T KNOW THAT WOULD BE PERTINENT.

THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, SAYING THAT THERE ARE NO OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS, PLEASE CALL THE ROLL.

BY MAYOR BILL.

YES, YES, YES, YES.

THE MAYOR VOTED JUST THREE FIVE ZERO.

THANK YOU.

MOVING ON TO NANCY, TWO TO FOUR, FIVE TO PORT AND CEMENTING THE WOODLANDS OVER

[9.c. TO2452 - Ordinance amending the Woodlands Overlay District to strike approval of exterior colors for single family homes from the City’s authority and granting approval to the WHOA]

THE DISTRICT TO STRIKE APPROVAL OF EXTERIOR COLORS FOR SINGLE FAMILY HOMES FROM THE CITY'S AUTHORITY AND GRANTING APPROVAL TO THE WHL ENTRANCE.

THE ATTORNEY FEES WITH THE TITLE FOR THE RECORD, LIKE THE ORDERS OF THE CITY COMMISSION SYSTEM.

A FLORIDA MAN IN CHARGE OF TEN OF ISD TIME CODE ORDERED THE GARLAND CODE.

ARTICLE TWO IN PART, ISN'T SPECIFICALLY MENTIONED.

SECTION 10 DOES TWO POINT SEVEN C AND TITLE WOODLAND'S OVERLAY DISTRICT BY STRIKING THE PAGE WITH THE CITY UNDER SECTION AND DOES TWO POINT SEVENTY SEVEN WILLINS HOMEOWNER ASSOCIATION QUALIFICATION PLUS CONFLICTS FOR SELF BUILDING AND PROVIDES ON THE SITE.

THANK YOU, MADAM.

THANK YOU.

AN EMOTIONAL SECOND PLACE.

SLOWMO.

YOU HAVE A SECOND.

SECOND, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

MAXINE COLECTOMY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR, IS AVAILABLE FOR ANY QUESTIONS, IF THERE'S ANY QUESTIONS, PUBLIC COMMENTS ARE NOW OPEN THAN PUBLIC COMMENTS AND NO PUBLIC COMMENT AT THE TIME.

MAKING PUBLIC COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED.

THAT'S COMMISSIONER BOLTON MS. COLORWAY.

HOW MANY COMMUNITIES IN TAMARAC HAS AN ELDERLY DISTRICT? THE WOODMAN'S COMMUNITY IS THE ONLY COMMUNITY IN THE CITY WITH A CODIFIED OVERLAYED DISTRICT.

WHY WAS THE WOODLAND COMMUNITY GIVEN THE ALBANY DISTRICT IN THE FIRST PLACE UP? COMMISSIONER, THAT WAS WAY BEFORE ME.

I CAN TELL YOU THAT I THINK THERE WAS SOME DISCUSSION RELATIVE TO THE LACK OF A GENERAL OR A COMMUNITY WIDE HIGHWAY.

AND I THINK THIS WAS STRUCTURED IN TO ASSIST THE COMMUNITY RELATIVE TO CERTAIN STANDARDS THAT THEY NEEDED TO HAVE MAINTAINED, AS YOU KNOW.

CONSEQUENTLY, THIS WAS LOOKED AT AS A PART OF OUR ZONING CODE UPDATE.

AND SO THIS WAS SUNSET, I THINK, MID TWENTY, TWENTY ONE.

WE EXTENDED IT ONCE, I BELIEVE.

AND I THINK IT WILL ULTIMATELY SUNSET THIS YEAR, SUMMER THIS YEAR.

AND FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE, WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF HAVING AN THOSE OTHER DISTRICTS? TYPICALLY FROM A ZONING PERSPECTIVE, IT INCLUDES ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS THAT ARE BENEFICIAL TO AN AREA THAT ARE NOT NECESSARILY CONTAINED IN THE ZONING DISTRICT.

SO IT'S NORMALLY ABOVE AND BEYOND THOSE STANDARDS THAT ARE CONTAINED IN A ZONING DISTRICT YOU'LL FIND IN AN OVERLAY DISTRICT.

AND IT'S NORMALLY TO ENCOURAGE.

SO YOU'LL HAVE A CULINARY OVERLAY DISTRICT THAT IS ENCOURAGING A PARTICULAR TYPE OF USE FOR REDEVELOPMENT ACTIVITY IN AN AREA OF THE CITY TYPICALLY

[02:55:03]

WHERE YOU SEE, OK, AND WOULD YOU SAY THAT THE OVERLAY DISTRICT BENEFITED THE WOODLANDS COMMUNITY WHILE THEY HAD IT OR WAS IT AT THEIR DISADVANTAGE? I THINK THEY WOULD SAY THAT THERE HAVE BEEN SOME BENEFITS THAT WE HAVE ADMINISTERED THIS PAIN PROGRAM.

I CAN TELL YOU THAT IT HAS A LEVEL OF VOLUME.

WE WERE PROCESSING PAIN PERMITS ANYWHERE FROM NINETEEN TO FIFTEEN ON AN ANNUAL BASIS.

WE ALSO INCLUDED SOME STANDARDS RELATIVE TO FENCING ON PROPERTY THAT THEY WERE THEY HAD TO COMPLY WITH.

SO I THINK AT LEAST FOR THE COMMUNITY, THEY SAW SOME BENEFIT FROM HAVING THIS DISTRICT.

OK, SO THIS AUTHORITY WILL BE GIVEN TO THE W.H AWAY AT SOME POINT, IF THAT IS NOT WORKING OUT.

DO WE HAVE THE PREROGATIVE TO INSTITUTE RECONSTRUCTION OF IT FOR YOU? TONIGHT IS JUST STRIKING THE OTHER THE OTHER ELEMENTS OF THE OVERLAY DISTRICT WILL STILL BE IN THE CODE.

THE ONLY THING WE'RE STRIKING TONIGHT IS OUR AUTHORITY AS IT RELATES TO THE AID APPROVAL PROCESS, THE PAIN PERMIT AND APPROVAL PROCESS.

SO THAT'S THE ONLY THING WE'RE STRIKING.

ALL THE OTHER ALL THE OTHER ELEMENTS WOULD STILL BE IN THE CODE.

OK, AS IT RELATES TO FENCING AND ALL THAT STUFF, YES, OK, THAT'S IT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU.

AND THIS MATTER WAS BROUGHT TO US AS A REQUEST DIRECTLY FROM THE COMMUNITY, SAYING THAT THERE'S NO OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS TO REPORT, PLEASE CALL THE ROLL COMMISSIONER.

THIS IS OPTIONAL.

IF YOU DON'T WANT IT, YOU DON'T HAVE TO REQUEST IT.

DO YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS? BUT ARE OTHER CITIES UTILIZING THIS? YES.

OTHER CITIES HAVE UTILIZED FIXED EXPENSE ACCOUNT.

IN FACT, I RECOMMEND IT.

AND IT WAS ADOPTED IN THE CITY OF ST. CHARLES BEACH 10 YEARS AGO.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

JUST USE OF.

EXPENSES HERE IN BROWARD, POMMIES, MIAMI, I'D LIKE YOU JUST TO ELABORATE MORE, AND IF IT'S NOT AN OPT IN, IS IT THE SAME POLICIES AND PROCEDURES THAT WE'VE USED? SO IF SOMEBODY GOES OUT TO COFFEE SOMEWHERE AND THEY WANT TO EXPENSIVE BECAUSE IT'S WITH SOMEBODY IN THE CITY FOR A CITY PURPOSE, THEN THEY HAVE TO PROVIDE THE RECEIPTS SHOWING THE KIND OF BUILDING, IS THAT CORRECT? CORRECT.

IF YOU DO NOT OPT IN TO FIX THE ACCOUNT, IF YOU WON'T IF YOU'RE SEEKING REIMBURSEMENT FROM THE CITY FOR ANY EXPENSE LOCALLY RELATED TO YOUR OTHER DUTIES, YOU WOULD HAVE TO PROVIDE.

OK, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THERE'S NO OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS TO THE CLERK, LUIS COLORA.

MISSIONER DELANE.

CITY COUNCIL FOR YOU TO SEE WHAT COMMISSIONER BOLTON NO WISHES TO SPEAK.

BUT IN THE MIDDLE OF CONTROL, WOULD YOU GO AHEAD OF ITS TIME COLORABLE BETANCOURT, SORRY.

I THINK I THINK I CAN CONTINUE READING, I WAS I WAS READING THE LEGISLATION JUST TO BE SURE THAT I HAVE SOMETHING TO COVER, BUT I WAS NOT FINISHED YET.

SO IT WAS IT WAS GOING TOO FAST.

SO I WANT TO CONTINUE READING, BUT BUT IT'S IT'S FINE.

YOU CAN.

IS THERE A QUESTION YOU HAVE WITH THE CITY ATTORNEY, METROPOLITAN? NO.

OK, SO LET'S CONTINUE.

THANK YOU, MR. GARLAND, I HEARD YOU.

YES, YES.

THANK YOU.

ZERO FOUR FIVE EIGHT OF THESE HAVE THANK YOU AND ALL NECESSARY CONDITIONS IN TAMPA, FLORIDA, CHAPTER TWO OF THE CITY CODE UPON THIS ENTIRE ADMINISTRATION,

THANK YOU.

AT THIS TIME I'M GOING TO HAVE THIS THING BROKEN DOWN INTO PIECES INSTEAD OF IT BEING ONE MASS VOTE.

SINCE THERE ARE DIFFERENT TOPICS THAT BUT KNOW THE AUDIENCE IS ONE ITEM FOR US TO APPROVE TO FOUR OR FIVE EIGHT.

SO I MOVE.

THAT'S FINE, I'M GOING TO TAKE THEM IN PIECES BECAUSE OF METAMORA, YOU CANNOT DO THAT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE CONSENSUS OF YOUR TEAM.

THE DIRECTOR PROBABLY WITH SOME OF THE TABLE AT THE TABLE, BUT THE DISCUSSION WILL GO THROUGH PIECES.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIKE IT.

THAT'S I'M ALLOWED TO DO THIS.

DO YOU HAVE ANY PLAQUE THERE? ANY PUBLIC COMMENTS, PUBLIC COMMENTS, PUBLIC COMMENTS.

AND I'LL CLOSE.

IF THERE ARE NO QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS BY THE COMMISSION, THEN I WILL ASK QUESTIONS TO THE CITY ATTORNEY MS. ABOUT THEM.

WHAT ARE YOUR QUESTIONS?

[9.e. TO2456 - Amending Section 2-425 "Travel Expense" (Part 2 of 2)]

JUST JUST FOR CLARIFICATION.

HANDS ON THE ON THE PREVIOUS ON THE PREVIOUS ITEM, AND THIS IS JUST CLARIFICATION IS NOT ASKING FOR A VOTE AGAIN.

YOU SAID THAT THE THIS SUPERSPEED SUPERSEDES THE THE CAR ALLOWANCE, CORRECT.

YES.

THE FIXED ACCOUNT IS IF YOU ARE IF YOU OPT IN IS INCLUSIVE OF THE CAR.

LOTS OF.

AND THEN SO, SO DOES IT REPLACE THE CAR LOANS OR.

NO IT IS IS THE AMOUNT IS IN ADDITION TO THE CAR LOANS.

IT DOES IN ESSENCE IF YOU WANT TO USE THE WORD, IT DOESN'T REPLACE IT IN AN IDENTICAL WAY, BUT THE AMOUNT IS INCLUSIVE.

YOU UNDERSTAND, BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO FIX THIS GARLAND.

ALL RIGHT, SO SO I'M JUST ASKING BECAUSE IF IT'S IF IT'S AN UP AND RIGHT, SO IF I'M IF I'M REPLACING THE CAR ALLOWANCE, I'M REPLACING THE CAR LOANS.

IF I'M NOT, I'M NOT.

IT HAS TO BE.

YEAH, IT IS REPLACING CAR IN THERE.

RIGHT.

SO SO ONCE WE UP TO THEM THERE'S THE CAR ALLOWANCE GOES AND THEN THIS, THIS KICKS IN.

CORRECT.

OK, AND, AND HOW DOES ONE OPTION OR OPT OUT BY THEIR VOTE.

WELL OBVIOUSLY IT'S NOT VIABLE BUT THE ORDINANCE DID PASS AND IT'S MEMBERS WANT TO GET FIXED.

ACCOUNT IS BASICALLY MAKING THAT REQUEST TO THE CITY MANAGER AND HE WOULD DIRECT THE FINANCE DIRECTOR TO OBVIOUSLY PROVIDED A FIXED ACCOUNT.

OK, SO SO IN OTHER WORDS, TONIGHT, EVERYBODY'S CAR ALLOWANCE IS IS DELETED.

THAT IS NO MORE.

AND THEN IF WE WANT TO OPT INTO THIS NEW TRAVEL PROGRAM, WE WOULD DIRECT THE CITY MANAGER ACCORDINGLY AND HE WOULD DO THAT.

AND IT'S NOT WE AND WE DON'T WANT IT.

WE JUST WE JUST CONTINUE WITHOUT.

SO YES OR NO DOESN'T NECESSARILY MEAN THAT WE THAT WE ARE OPTING IN, BECAUSE I THINK THE LEGISLATION FOR ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO OPT IN THE FUTURE DATE.

CORRECT.

OK, SO SO SO ANY OF US WHO WANTED IN THE PAST TO GET RID OF THE CAR ALLOWANCE, THIS IS THEIR OPPORTUNITY TO NOT UPDATE.

OK, THAT'S THAT'S ALL THAT'S ALL I HAVE.

SO THANK YOU, GENTLEMEN, FOR GETTING RID OF YOUR CAR LOANS, OK? THAT THAT THAT'S JUST A CLARIFICATION THAT I HAD BEFORE.

SO I DON'T HAVE A QUESTION.

NO.

SO.

THANK YOU, MADAM.

I JUST I NEED TO I GUESS I NEED SOME CLARIFICATION, JUST JUST TO BE SURE I UNDERSTAND THE CHOICES THAT THE COMMISSION IS GOING TO MAKE.

[03:10:01]

SO THIS LEGISLATION IS PASSING ON FIRST ON FIRST READING AND SELLING.

IT PASSED ON SECOND READING.

WE WILL IF I UNDERSTAND THIS CORRECTLY, THERE WILL BE NO MORE CAR ALLOWANCE.

AND YOU WILL HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT YOU OPT IN TO THE SIXTH FIX BECAUSE THE CITY ATTORNEY IS NOW SHAKING HI HEAD.

BUT I THOUGHT THAT WAS JUST WHAT COMMISSIONER BOLTON SAID.

SO I WANT TO BE CLEAR, BECAUSE I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET YOU WHAT WHAT YOU WANT.

AND I'M NOT I'M I GUESS I'M HEARING SOME CONFLICT HERE.

SO I JUST WANT TO BE OUR GUEST IS BASICALLY IF YOU IF YOU DON'T, YOU KEEP THE STATUS QUO.

IF YOU OPT IN IN THE STATUS QUO, CHANGE THE STATUS QUO.

RIGHT NOW, BASED ON THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE GIVEN ME THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM, LOANS IS PROVIDED TO THE COMMISSION.

IF THEY WANT TO KEEP THAT, THEY DO NOT HAVE TO OPT IN TO FIX IT.

OK, OK, OK.

THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.

BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT I HEARD COMMISSIONER BOLTON ASK.

AND I JUST WANTED TO BE SURE IT IS AN OPTIONAL FIX.

THE OPTIONAL MEANS IS IS REALLY IT'S UP TO THE COMMISSION.

IT'S SO SO THEN HANDSOME, I'M CONFUSED AGAIN, SO IF I IF I OPT IN, IS IT IN ADDITION TO THE CAR LOANS OR ARE.

NO, NO.

OK, IT'S INCLUSIVE OF THE CAR ALLOWANCE IF YOU WALKED IN.

OK, AND IF I IF I IF I DON'T, AND THEN I STILL KEEP THE CAR ALLOWANCE AND NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM, CORRECT.

OK.

I WANT TO LEAVE THIS ITEM, I THINK SOMETIME BETWEEN FIRST AND SECOND READING, I WILL GET THE CAR ALLOWANCE BE BE TERMINATED.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

MAYOR.

ONCE THE MOTION IS PASSED, ARE WE ALLOWED TO GO BACK ON AIR, JUST ONE POINT OF CLARITY TO SAY I WAS PASSED, BUT IT WAS A POINT OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE THAT THE CHAIR OF THE COMMISSION BOTHERED TO DISCUSS THIS NOT.

THANK YOU.

AND MADAM MAYOR, JUST JUST TO BE CLEAR, IN A MOMENT OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE, BECAUSE I GUESS THE VICE MAYOR IS IS NEW AND QUITE FRANKLY, THESE BUDDING ENDS TO ASK WHETHER OR NOT SOMETHING IS JUST OR NOT IS GETTING TO BE ANNOYING.

SO A POINT OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE.

I JUST WANT TO UNDERSTAND, IF WE'RE GOING BACKWARDS, WE'RE GOING FORWARD.

WHY DO WE KEEP GOING BACKWARDS ON THE SUBJECT MATTER? THAT'S ALL.

OK, YOU BUT YOU BUTTING IN IS ACTUALLY MOVING US BACKWARDS RIGHT NOW.

SO A MOMENT OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE IS A WAY WHICH A LETTER WAS NEVER REQUESTED AND IT IS NOT THAT WAS NOT REQUESTED.

IS IS IS WAY THAT THAT A LEGISLATURE CAN GET THE ATTENTION OF THE PRESIDING OFFICER AND I GOT THE ATTENTION OF THE PRESIDING OFFICER ON THE FLOOR AND IT IS USED TO QUESTION IT IS USED WHEN SOME QUESTION REQUIRES IMMEDIATE CONSIDERATION, WHICH THIS FELL UNDER, SUCH AS MAKING A PARLIAMENTARY INQUIRY.

I MADE MY INQUIRY CALLING ATTENTION TO DISORDERLY CONDUCT OR WORDS OR RAISING THE QUESTION OF NO QUORUM.

SO UNDER ALL OF THAT, I NEED A POINT OF CLARITY.

JUST A IT'S JUST A TEACHABLE MOMENT, VICE.

THANK YOU, SIR.

AND I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT.

AND THAT'S WHY I'M ASKING QUESTIONS TO OUR CITY ATTORNEY.

THANK YOU.

WE'RE DONE WITH THE QUESTIONS AT THIS POINT.

[9.f. TO2458 - Amending Chapter 2 - "Comprehensive Procedures" (Part 2 of 2)]

I'D LIKE TO GET BACK TO WE ARE ON NINE F.

SO THIS WAS ON THE.

COMPREHENSIVE PROCEDURES AND AT THIS TIME, IS THERE ANYBODY WHO HAS ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THE PROCEDURES THAT HAVE BEEN LAID OUT? IF THERE ARE NOT BY OTHERS, I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS FOR THE CITY ATTORNEY.

THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT WERE WRITTEN IN HERE THAT I DON'T BELIEVE THAT WE DISCUSSED.

I WAS JUST CURIOUS WHERE THEY CAME ABOUT FOR.

I'M TRYING TO BE BEST IF WE LOOK AT OUR PAGE THREE OF THE MEMORANDUM.

I WAS CURIOUS HOW THE PROCESS AND PROCEDURE WOULD WORK FOR ONE AND TWO, ARE WE

[03:15:02]

GOING TO BE SAYING BEFORE EVERY PERSON, BEFORE THERE'S EVERY EVERY KIND OF EVERY TIME THAT THERE'S GOING TO BE A PUBLIC DISCUSSION? ARE WE CALLING FOR A COMMISSION VOTE ON HOW LONG THE PUBLIC WILL BE ALLOWED TO SPEAK? BECAUSE IT'S BEEN CHANGED FROM HAVING THE PRESIDING OFFICER OR THE MAYOR WHO RUNS THE MEETING TO BE ABLE TO DETERMINE THE TIME LIMIT, WHICH IS STANDARD FOR OUR CITY COMMISSION? FOR A 30 MINUTE TIME ALLOTMENT OR TO ALLOW THE COMMISSION TO SPEAK.

CURIOUS AS TO THE MIND FRAME BEHIND YOU, THERE WAS NOT THE LAST WEEK THAT.

EVERYTHING IS IN HERE WAS CONSISTENT WITH THE DIRECTION THAT THE CITY COMMISSION GAVE THE CITY ATTORNEY AND WITH RESPECT TO THE MEMORANDUM THAT I HAD PROVIDED, THE COMMISSION AND THE VOTES RELATING TO THE ITEMS AND AND YES, WHAT IS IT MEMBERS REFLECT AND WHICH THE COMMISSION INDICATED WITH RESPECT, RESPECT TO REGULATE DEBATE THAT ALLOWED THE PRESIDING CHAIR, WHICH IS THE MAYOR HAS AUTHORITY LIKE RESPECT TO TIMELINESS, RESPECT TO THE REMOVAL OF THE PUBLIC, RESPECT THE REMOVAL OF A MEMBER OF THE COMMISSION.

THEY WANTED THE AUTHORITY TO BE THE BODY, NOT ONE INDIVIDUAL THAT WAS CONSISTENT WITH WHAT THE VOTES WERE BASED IN THE MEMORANDUM THAT I GAVE TO THE CITY COMMISSION AT THE LAST MINUTE.

I DON'T RECALL WHEN WE'RE DEALING WITH H EIGHT THAT IT WAS IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR THE MEMBERS OF THE CITY COMMISSION COULD NOT BE REMOVED BY THE MAYOR, BUT WE DID NOT DEAL WITH ANYONE DEALING WITH AN UNLAWFUL O DISRUPTIVE INDIVIDUAL AT THE COMMISSION.

SO BASICALLY BETWEEN AGE AND J.

I REMOVING ANY INDIVIDUAL WHO IS UNRULY, DISRUPTIVE AND POTENTIALLY VIOLENT, WE HAVE LEFT OUR RESIDENTS WITH NO POTENTIAL.

IF THERE SHOULD BE ANY ISSUES AT COMMISSION MEETINGS THERE, THE COMMISSION STILL HAS AUTHORITY THAT IF WE'VE CROSSED IT OUT, WE'VE CROSSED IT OUT.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE WAY IT'S BEEN DRAFTED, IT'S ALL CROSSED OUT THERE.

IT REMOVES THE ABILITY.

HE SAYS IT SHALL BE UNLAWFUL FOR ANY INDIVIDUAL MEMBER OF THE COMMISSION, BUT THE WHOLE THING IS CROSSED OUT, INCLUDING THE INDIVIDUAL ON ANY INDIVIDUAL OR CITY COMMISSION MEMBER WHO HAD A COMMISSION OR BOARD MEETING WILLFULLY INTERRUPTS AND DISTURBS A MEETING IN VIOLATION OF FLORIDA STATUTES IS SUBJECT TO ARREST AND OF COURSE, AND BY THE OFFICERS PRESENT, NO ACTION BY THE PRESIDING OFFICER IS REQUIRED FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT TO ENFORCE AS AMENDED FROM TIME TO TIME, WE COMPLETELY REMOVE THAT WHOLE SECTION.

I KNOW I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE ON THIS COMMISSION WHO ARE SO CONCERNED THAT THEY'RE GOING TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE OR REMOVED FROM A COMMISSION MEETING IF THEY'RE DISRUPTIVE.

IT'S NEVER HAPPENED.

THERE'S BEEN DISRUPTION BEFORE.

THEY'VE NEVER BEEN REMOVED.

SO I'M REALLY NOT SURE WHY ALL THE PONTIFICATING FOR HAVING THESE ITEMS REMOVED FROM OUR COMMISSIONS CODE FOR A CODE OF CONDUCT.

BUT YES, THAT'S WHAT THIS COMMISSION, AS THE MAJORITY WANTED.

BUT I DON'T BELIEVE IT INCLUDED INDIVIDUALS FOR THE PROTECTION OF PEOPLE WHO WILL EVENTUALLY BE COMING BACK INTO COMMISSION CHAMBERS.

I THINK THAT THERE WAS MORE OVERREACHING IN SOME OF THE DRAFTING OF THIS.

RULES FOR BUSINESS ON HBO ANNOUNCED EARLIER THAT I'VE NEVER SPEAKING THAT PRESIDENT.

SO I JUST BELIEVE THAT SOME OF THE ATTACKS HERE WERE ADDITIONAL ATTACKS THAT WERE NOT AS DISCUSSED.

SO I MAKE NOTE OF THIS FOR THE CITY COMMISSION TO BE AWARE OF.

AND ALSO OUR CITY COMMISSION SHOULD BE MINDFUL, EVEN OUR COUNTY COMMISSION.

AND THEY'VE JUST WE DID THIS LAST MONTH, I BELIEVE IT WAS FOR THEIR CODE OF CONDUCT, TRYING TO ENFORCE THE FACT THAT THERE SHOULD BE.

DECORUM AND RESPECT AND CIVILITY AMONG THE MEMBERS, SO THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS.

I AM ALSO HIGHLY OPPOSED TO THE CITY COMMISSION HAVING ADDITIONAL LIAISONS THAT ARE PAID FOR THE WORK THAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO.

AND WHILE I HAVE NO OBJECTION TO SOME OF THE MATTERS THAT ARE ADDRESSED HERE, CONSIDERING THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT GOING TO BE PROTECTED AS SUCH, I WILL NOT BE I WILL NOT AGREE TO THIS.

COMPREHENSIVE PROCEDURES CHANGE AS SUCH.

[03:20:03]

COMMISSIONER BALTON.

MADAME MAYOR, DO YOU HAVE AN EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT THAT REPORTS DIRECTLY TO YOU, PLEASE, ON THE RIGHT TO WORK? SO I'M I'M JUST FLABBERGASTED BY YOU SAYING THAT.

WE WANT PEOPLE TO DO THE WORK THAT WE WERE ELECTED TO DO, HAVING PEOPLE AS LEGISLATORS, IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY ARE DOING OU WORK.

TO ME, IT MEANS THAT WE ARE GIVING PEOPLE THE OPPORTUNITY, INCLUDING COLLEGE STUDENTS, TO LEARN ABOUT CITY GOVERNMENT WHIL UNDERSTANDING THEY MAY BE THEY MAY RECEIVE A STIPEND OR HOWEVER WE WE INTERPRET IT AT THE TIME OF INSTITUTING IT.

BUT YOU HAVE THE LAST TIME WE IT ON COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT LIAISON'S, YOU SAID NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, I DON'T WANT IT.

AND THEN HIRED SOMEBODY.

AND NONE OF US KNEW THAT YOU EVEN HIRED SOMEBODY TO DO YOUR WORK, SO THOSE KIND OF THINGS IS IT IS JUST REALLY DRAINING AND THAT THE CITY ATTORNEY DID A FINE JOB CAPTURING WHAT THE COMMISSION WANTED.

I READ THE LEGISLATION IS WITH THIS.

I THOUGHT IT IS THOUGHTFUL AND AND AND CAPTURES WHAT EVERYBODY HAD TO SAY.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL MOVE FORWARD WITH THE YES VOTE ON THIS WITHOUT POLITICS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR.

YOU WILL.

I WOULD LIKE TO ECHO COMMISSIONER BOLTON'S WORDS, EVERY SINGLE ONE, I AGREE WITH IT, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT IF WE ARE GOING TO BE ADDING THIS, THAT'D BE A TAMRAT.

RESIDENTS PREFER BLAKE.

AND I LIKE TO KNOW HOW WE CAN IMPLEMENT THAT.

OR WE DON'T WANT THAT MAJORITY ON THAT.

IS THAT A REASON THAT WINDS UP BEING THE ULTIMATE DECISION OF THE COMMISSIONER WHO IS FIRING THE PERSON? WE DON'T SEE THE LANGUAGE OBVIOUSLY INDICATE PREFERENCE TO RESIDENTS.

THERE'S ALWAYS SOME ISSUES IN TERMS OF THE LAW AND EMPLOYMENT LAW.

I WILL WORK WITH THE H.R.

DIRECTOR TO COME UP WITH SOME POLICY THAT IS CONSISTENT WITH THE WISHES OF THE COMMISSION.

BUT WE MAKE IT AS A POINT OF CLARIFICATION.

ONE OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANTS HERE IN THE OFFICE DOES NOT WORK FOR ME, SOLELY WORKS FOR THE COMMISSIONER.

DISTRICT FOUR COMMISSIONER AS WELL.

AND ALSO.

THERE MY ISSUE IS REGARDING LEGISLATIVE AIDES AND THE PAYMENT OF THEM, ALL FOUR OF THEM HAVE BEEN STICKING THE WAY WE HAD IT TO HAVE THEM GETTING SCHOOL CREDIT.

I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO WORK ON AN INTERNSHIP PROGRAM AND BEING ABLE TO HAVE THEM LEARN THE CITY.

IT WAS A MATTER OF A FUNCTION WHERE OUR CITY IS HAVING A BUDGET ITEM AND THEN NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN EXPANDED BY THREE ADDITIONAL PEOPLE OR TWO ADDITIONAL PEOPLE WAS WHERE THE CONCERN IS.

THERE IS NO NEED TO REBUT.

I'M ENTITLED TO MY OPINION.

YOU'VE SAID YOURS AT THIS POINT IN TIME.

THERE'S NO FURTHER DISCUSSION FOR ANYTHING NEW.

THEN IT'S TIME TO QUALIFY.

MADAM MAYOR, I'M NOT MAKING A REBUTTAL.

I HAVE MY HAND UP TO DISCUSS THE ITEM AND I'D LIKE TO READ IT AND THEN PLEASE GO FORWARD.

OK, QUESTION FOR MY COLLEAGUE, COMMISSIONER CLARK.

I'LL DO THAT TO.

BUT YOU HAVE THREE ASSISTANTS TO EXECUTIVE AND ONE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT LIAISON.

I'M SORRY YOU WERE CUTTING OUT IN THE BEGINNING.

I DIDN'T HEAR WHAT YOU SAID.

DO YOU WANT ME TO THINK ABOUT THAT? I HAVE NO, I DO NOT.

SO SO THE MAYOR IS SAYING THAT YOU WORK FOR THAT WORKS FOR YOU.

THAT IS NOT TRUE.

ONE PERSON, NOT TWO.

OK, I'M NOT SURE WHAT YOU'RE ASKING ME.

ARE YOU ASKING ME IF I HAVE A COMMUNITY LIAISON?

[03:25:01]

YES, I HAVE ONE COMMUNITY LIAISON.

OK, AND DOES AND DOES ITLIONG AND JENK ALSO WORK FOR YOU OR JUST ELIADE.

JUST ELIáN.

OK, SO SO THEN THE THE MAYOR HAS GENGAR.

WHO IS THE THAT ASSISTANT REPORTING ONLY TO HER.

OH.

SO I'M NOT SURE WHY SHE DOES NOT WANT TO ADMIT THAT SHE HAS AN EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT FOR HERSELF AND ALSO A COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT LIAISON.

OK, CAN I, CAN I SAY SOMETHING.

IT IS THE, THE THOUGHT PROCESS IN THE OFFICE THAT BOTH OF OUR ASSISTANTS WORK FOR EVERYONE DEPENDING ON WHO'S HERE ON ELIAN WAS HER FIRST AND HER AND I HAVE DEVELOPED A VERY GOOD WORKING RELATIONSHIP.

SO I HAVE BEEN CONSISTENTLY WORKING WITH ELIáN.

OK, SO DO WE, MR. MANAGER, DO WE NEED TWO EXECUTIVE ASSISTANTS IN THE OFFICE IS THAT IS AH THERE IS JUST SO MUCH WORK THAT WE NEED TWO EXECUTIVE ASSISTANTS.

WELL, I THINK THAT THE EXECUTIVE ASSISTANTS WOULD TELL YOU, YES, THAT'S OK, BUT BETWEEN THE FIVE, YOU MUST FIND ENOUGH WORK TO KEEP THEM BUSY.

I'M ASKING I'M ASKING YOU I'M NOT I'M NOT ASKING FROM THEIR PERSPECTIVE BASED ON BASED ON THE INPUT THAT WE'VE RECEIVED FROM THEM AND THE EVALUATIONS OF THEIR WORK THAT WE'VE DONE, I WOULD SAY YES.

MR. STANAGE, IF IF IF COMMISSIONER POLACCO DOES NOT SEND ANY WORK TO EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT AID AND VICE MAYOR VILLA-LOBOS DOES NOT SEND A NEW WORD TO HER AND I DON'T SEND AN EMAIL TO HER AND COMMISSIONER GILLANDERS DOES SENDING WORK TO HER, ISN'T SHE ONLY WORKING FOR THE MAYOR AND.

THEN.

IS THE MAYOR DOES THE MAYOR HAVE SO MUCH WORK TO PASS ON TO THE EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT? I MEAN, SHE'S A KEY.

ACCORDING TO HER WORD, SHE WAS ELECTED TO DO THE JOB HERSELF.

SO WHY DOES SHE EVEN NEED AN ASSISTANT? DOESN'T MAKE SENSE, IT'S IT'S IT'S LIKE WE'RE WE'RE GOING BACK AND FORTH HERE, WHAT IN ONE BREATH WE'RE SAYING, OH, WE DON'T NEED ANY HELP TO DO THE WORK THAT WE WERE ELECTED TO DO.

AND IN ANOTHER SENSE, YOU'RE SAYING, OK, LET'S HAVE THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT LIAISON'S, LET'S HAVE THE EXECUTIVE ASSISTANTS AND THE AND THEN THAT'S FINE.

IT JUST BAFFLES ME.

SO THAT'S THAT'S THAT'S I THINK THE MAYOR WAS AT A POINT WHERE SHE WAS GOING TO ASK THE CRITICAL QUESTION.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR OPINIONS THAT ARE NOT FULLY THOUGHT OUT.

AND I DON'T NEED A REBUTTAL.

THAT'S THE CITY CLERK.

PLEASE CALL THE ROLL.

FOR CLARITY, IT WAS VICE MAYOR VILLARAIGOSA MADE THE MOTION EXTRA CAREFUL TO BE SECONDED AND ARE INCLUDED IN THAT LEGISLATIVE AIDES, TAMARACK RESIDENT OR WHAT THE CITY ATTORNEY IS GOING TO WORK ON THAT REALLY YOU HAVE TO WORK ON INFORMALLY, BECAUSE IT ALREADY IS SOMETHING IN OUR PROCEDURE THAT CONVERSATION WITH OUR OK.

BACKGROUND NOISE IS SOMETHING THAT WE NEED TO DO.

I CAN SEE FROM WHAT I'M LOOKING AT IT AND BELIEVE IT MAY BE COMING FROM ONE OF THE COMMISSIONERS JUST IN THE BACKGROUND.

I'M NOT SURE IF THEY'RE GOING TURNED ON SOMEWHERE, BUT I CAN TELL BY THE SYSTEM, WHENEVER THERE IS NOISE, SOMEBODY LIKE A PERSON TO SEE THEM IS THE BEST THING WE COULD DO IS BE VIGILANT ABOUT NEWLING OURSELVES.

THANK YOU.

NOW WE'RE MOVING ON TO 13, A DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE DIRECTION RELATED TO

[13.a. Discussion and possible direction related to Commission Initiatives]

COMMISSION INCENTIVES.

CITY MANAGER HAS A SHORT PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR, CAN EVERYONE HEAR ME ALL RIGHT? YES, GOOD.

OK, LET ME GO AHEAD AND SHARE MY SCREEN WITH YOU.

JIM, DID I DO THAT OR DID YOU? I HAVE A PRESENT, BUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO IT, THEN I CAN DEFINITELY CHANGE THAT.

OH NO, GO AHEAD.

WE'LL JUST LEAVE IT LIKE IT IS.

SINCE YOU'VE GOT IT.

YOU'VE GOT IT THERE ALREADY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO DURING THE BUDGET PROCESS, YOU INCREASED YOUR EXPENSE ACCOUNTS TO THE POINT WHERE YOU ARE ABLE TO DO THE INITIATIVES THAT YOU DESIRE.

AND SO IN AND DURING THAT PROCESS, YOU ADVISED US THAT WE NEED TO DO ADOPT.

WE NEED TO COME FORWARD WITH A POLICY IN ORDER TO FACILITATE THESE INITIATIVES IN AN ORDERLY WAY AND IN A WAY THAT ACCOMPLISHED THE OBJECTIVES THAT YOU WISH TO ACCOMPLISH WITH THE INITIATIVE.

SO, JIM, THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT, SO WE NEED TO DEVELOP A POLICY THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO DO THE ACTIVITIES THAT YOU WISH TO DO, TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY AND TO PROVIDE THE COMMUNITY WITH SPECIALIZED ATTENTION THAT GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND THE EVENTS THAT

[03:35:01]

WE DO CITYWIDE AS AS AS A CITY.

AND SO WE NEED TO COME UP WITH A PROCESS THAT'S GOING TO FACILITATE SOME TIMELY AND SOME TRANSPARENT COMMUNICATION WITH YOU AND AMONG YOUR COLLEAGUES IN ORDER TO BE SURE THAT WE GET THE ALLOCATION OF RESOURCES APPROPRIATELY ALLOCATED FOR THE THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO DO.

IF WE'VE GOT ANY NUMBER OF INITIATIVES THAT YOU'RE ALREADY WORKING ON.

AND WHAT WE WANT TO DO IS WE WANT TO BE SURE THAT WE'RE COMMUNICATING WITH YOU PROPERLY, THAT WE'RE WORKING WITH YOUR COMMUNIT ENGAGEMENT LIAISONS AND WITH THE ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF AND THE COMMISSION OFFICE APPROPRIATELY IN ORDER TO BE SURE THAT YOUR EVENTS GET PLANNED IN A TIMELY MANNER AND THAT THEY GET IMPLEMENTED AND AND THAT YOU'RE SATISFIED WITH THEM.

ALSO, WE WANT TO BE SURE THAT WE'RE COMMUNICATING AND THAT YOU ARE COMMUNICATING WITH ONE ANOTHER REGARDING THE INITIATIVE AND THAT WE'RE CREATING OPPORTUNITIES TO COLLABORATE AND TO PARTNER ON INITIATIVES THAT YOU HAVE THAT ARE SIMILAR OR THE SAME.

AND AT THE SAME TIME, WE WANT TO BE SURE THAT WE ARE ACCOUNTING FOR THE EXPENSES APPROPRIATELY IN ORDER IN ORDER THAT WE CAN TRACK OUR INITIATIVES AND BE SURE THAT WE ARE BUDGETING ENOUGH MONEY IN ORDER FOR YOU TO DO THE THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO DO ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT WE'RE ALREADY DOING.

JIM, CAN I HAVE THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE? OK, SO WHAT WHAT ARE OUR INITIATIVES? WELL, INITIATIVES OR ACTIVITIES THAT ARE INITIATED, ORGANIZED OR FACILITATED BY YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

THESE CAN INCLUDE THIRD PARTY, THIRD PARTIES THAT YOU WISH TO PARTNER WITH.

THEY ARE ACTIVITIES THAT MAY OR MAY NOT REQUIRE THE USE OF USAGE OF STAFF TIME OR RESOURCES OUTSIDE OF CITY FACILITIES.

AND AND, OF COURSE, THEY ARE THEY HAVE A PUBLIC THEY ARE PUBLIC PURPOSE EVENTS AND THEY ARE DESIGNED TO BETTER COMMUNICATE WITH THE COMMUNITY AND TO BETTER ENGAGE WITH THE COMMUNITY.

AND EXAMPLES ARE THINGS THAT SOME OF THE THINGS THAT YOU'VE ALREADY DONE, WHETHER THERE BE SPECIAL EVENTS OR ROUNDTABLES OR TRADE STYLE SHOWS, RECEPTIONS, COMMUNITY CLEANUPS, THEY CAN BE ADVERTISEMENTS, MAILINGS, DIRECT MAIL, COMMUNICATION WITH YOUR CONSTITUENTS.

THEY CAN BE ANY NUMBER OF OF THOSE THINGS.

A JIM, THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO THE INITIATIVES THAT YOU ARE BRINGING FORWARD ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE CITY WIDE OPERATING BUDGET, MEANING THAT WE HAVE A FULL A FULL GAMUT OF CITYWIDE EVENTS THAT WILL OCCUR AND THAT THE INITIATIVES THAT YOU ARE DOING ARE ABOVE AND BEYOND THOSE CITYWIDE.

THE INITIATIVES ARE DESIGNED TO ADDRESS COMMUNITY NEEDS.

THEY'RE DESIGNED TO ENGAGE WITH THE PUBLIC AND THEY ARE DESIGNED TO CREATE PERTINENT CONVERSATION AND THEY CONTRIBUTE TO THE CITY'S STRATEGIC GOALS.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE DO IS THAT WE PLAN AND ALLOCATE FUNDS FOR THESE EVENTS THAT THE CITY PUTS ON DURING THE ANNUAL BUDGE PROCESS.

YOU ARE BUDGETING A LUMP SUM TO UTILIZE DURING THE FISCAL YEAR TO DO THE INITIATIVES THAT WILL ENHANCE THE EVENTS THAT THE CITY'S ALREADY DOING.

AND SO KNOW SOME OF THE THINGS THAT ARE IMPORTANT IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOALS TRULY ARE THE TIMELY COMMUNICATION OF WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WISH TO ACHIEVE AND THE OUTCOMES WHICH YOU ACHIEVE, WHAT YOU WANT TO GET AS WE GO AS WE GO THROUGH ALL OF THIS.

AND SO FOR US INTERNALLY, THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF ANY EVENT THAT WE DO IS THE COMMUNICATION AND THE PLANNING AND HAVING EVERYTHING DONE IN A TIMELY MANNER IN ORDER THAT WHEN THE EVENT COMES AROUND, EVERYTHING'S READY TO GO.

AND THAT IS WHAT WE DESIRE TO FACILITATE FOR YOU WITH WITH YOUR INITIATIVES.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, THERE'S A LOT THAT GOES INTO A SUCCESSFUL EVENT.

AND WE JUST WANT TO BE SURE THAT WE CAN MANAGE THE EVENTS IN A WAY THAT SATISFIES YOU AND THAT ACCOMPLISHES YOUR GOALS FOR YOUR INITIATIVES.

JIM, THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO IN A IN A NORMAL YEAR, WE'RE GOING TO USE TWENTY NINETEEN BECAUSE TWENTY TWENTY HAS BEEN ANYTHING BUT NORMAL.

BUT IN A NORMAL YEAR WE DO 40 LARGE COMMUNITY ORIENTED EVENTS EVERY YEAR.

WE ALSO DO A WEEKLY FARMER'S MARKET.

WE OFFER ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY PLUS CLASSES AND PROGRAMS AT CITY FACILITIES.

NOW THAT'S NOT JUST ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY CLASSES.

[03:40:03]

THAT WOULD BE ONE ONE OF THOSE, ONE OF THOSE HUNDRED AND THIRTY CLASSES MAY BE A FOUR DAY A WEEK AEROBICS PROGRAM OR IT COULD BE READING IN THE PARK.

IT COULD BE COOKING WITH KIDS AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER OR THE REC CENTER.

IT COULD BE ANY NUMBER OF THINGS.

SO EVERY ONE OF THOSE CLASSES HAPPENS MULTIPLE TIMES A WEEK.

TO TRY TO QUANTIFY THAT, WE DO ALMOST TWENTY THOUSAND HOURS OF ROOM USAGE AT THE FACILITIES THAT WE HAVE BETWEEN OUR PROGRAMS AND RENTAL.

AND SO WITH ALL OF THAT GOING ON, WE WANT TO BE SURE THAT WE HAVE ENOUGH NOTICE FROM YOU ABOUT THE EVENTS THAT YOU WANT TO DO AND WHERE YOU WANT TO PROMOTE THEM IN ORDER THAT WE CAN MAKE SURE THAT THE SPACE IS AVAILABLE FOR THE THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO DO AND THAT WE GET THE FACILITIES BOOKED IN A TIMELY MANNER IN ORDER THAT THEY'RE THERE FOR YOUR USAGE.

SO, JIM, CAN I SEE THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE? JUST JUST TO JUST TO SHARE WITH YOU A PLANNING TIMELINE FROM OUR EVENT STAFF, OUR BOARDS AND COMMITTEES LUNCHEON IS A PRETTY SIMPLE EVENT.

IT'S STRAIGHT UP JUST PLANNING A LUNCHEON, BUT IT TAKES THREE MONTHS TO IMPLEMENT.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE TIMELINE, IT HAS A THREE THOUSAND DOLLAR BUDGET.

TWO EMPLOYEES PUT THIS TOGETHER.

OBVIOUSLY, THEY HAVE OTHER THINGS THAT THEY'RE WORKING ON AT THE SAME TIME.

BUT THIS JUST GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF THE PLANNING THAT GOES INTO AN EVENT LIKE A LUNCHEON.

JIM, CAN I HAVE THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE? IF IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT DOING AN EVENT LIKE THE TURKEY TROT, YOU'LL SEE THE TURKEY TROT IS MORE COMPLEX.

IT INVOLVES MULTIPLE DEPARTMENTS.

IT INVOLVES MULTIPLE VENDORS.

IT'S AN ALL HANDS ON DECK TYPE OF EVENT.

WE TAKE FIVE OR SIX MONTHS THE PLANET, AND IT'S GOT A FORTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLAR BUDGET.

ALL RIGHT.

AND SO, JIM, CAN I HAVE THE NEXT SLIDE? SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'D LIKE TO PROPOSE TO YOU IS THAT EVERY MONTH DURING THE SECOND COMMISSION MEETING, WE'RE GOING TO ASK YOU TO BRING UP INITIATIVES, EVENTS, MEETINGS AND THINGS THAT YOU'RE PLANNING ON DOING SO THAT WE CAN EFFECTIVELY COMMUNICATE THAT NOT JUST TO US, BUT ALSO TO YOUR COLLEAGUES AS WELL.

AND SO SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? IT MEANS THAT EACH OF YOU HAS UNIQUE THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO DO.

AND BY COMMUNICATING THOSE THINGS TO YOUR COLLEAGUES, WE WOULD HOPE THAT YOUR COLLEAGUES WOULD BE THERE TO SUPPORT YOUR INITIATIVES AND THAT YOU WOULD BE THERE TO SUPPORT.

THERE IS AT BEST A DESIRE.

AND AND THAT IF THERE ARE INITIATIVES OR EVENTS, THINGS THAT YOU'RE DOING THAT ARE SIMILAR OR EVEN THE SAME, THAT THAT YOU WOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO COLLABORATE AND PARTNER ON ON SOME OF THESE THINGS OR THAT YOU PUT TOGETHER, BRING IN THIRD PARTY PARTNERS TO SHARE IN THE EVENTS AND THE INITIATIVES THAT YOU'RE PLANNING TO IN THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

JIM, CAN I HAVE THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE? IS EVERYBODY ELSE FROZEN LIKE I'M SEEING THE SCREEN, SO THERE'S THE NEXT SLIDE.

THANK YOU, JIM.

ALL RIGHT.

SO IN ORDER TO SUCCESSFULLY PLAN THESE INITIATIVES, WE'RE GOING TO BRING YOU A POLICY.

SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE ARE CONSIDERING FOR THE POLICY WOULD INCLUDE THE EARLIEST POSSIBLE SUBMISSION OF YOUR PLANS, EVENTS, INITIATIVES, SO THAT WE CAN PROPERLY HELP YOU PLAN FOR THEM IF WE CAN HAVE YOUR PLANS.

ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY DAYS BEFORE AN EVENT, WE CAN ADVERTISE IT APPROPRIATELY IN THE TOWN OF GRAHAM.

IF YOU NEED CITY FACILITIES, WE WOULD LIKE FORTY FIVE DAYS NOTICE IN ORDER THAT WE CAN GET THOSE FACILITIES CLEARED AND BOOKED FOR YOU AND FOR YOUR EVENT OR INITIATIVE.

AND THEN WE NEED WE NEED TO ALLOW FOR SEVERAL WEEKS OF TIME TO COORDINATE EVENTS LIKE MEETINGS OR EVENTS INVOLVING PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS.

AND SO YOU HAVE DEMONSTRATED IN THE PAST SUCCESSFUL INITIATIVES, THINGS.

ACTUALLY, JIM, WHY DON'T YOU GO AHEAD AND GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE FOR ME? SO YOU GUYS HAVE DEMONSTRATED, AS I SAID IN THE PAST, THE ABILITY TO WORK WITH US AND TO PLAN SOME VERY SUCCESSFUL INITIATIVES, THE COPS AND

[03:45:01]

COMMUNITIES FORUM COMES TO MIND.

THE MARIJUANA SUMMIT, THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA SUMMIT COMES TO MIND OUR OUR HUMAN TRAFFICKING SUMMIT AND PARTNERSHIP COMES TO MIND.

THESE ARE ALL THINGS THAT YOU'VE BROUGHT FORWARD AND SUCCESSFULLY WORKED WITH STAFF TO INITIATE.

AND IN SOME CASES, THESE ARE BECOMING REPETITIVE INITIATIVES THAT YOU'RE GOING TO SEE EVERY YEAR, WHICH WILL SIMPLIFY THINGS.

BUT THE REPETITIVE ONES, HOWEVER, WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING AN INITIATIVE REQUEST FORM, WHICH IS GOING TO ALLOW US TO SIT DOWN WITH YOU AND UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT THE INITIATIVE IS, WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH, AND ALL OF THE RESOURCES THAT NEED AND ARE EXPECTED FOR THAT EVENT.

THINGS LIKE DETAILED, SET UP PLANS, IF YOU HAVE SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ROOM OR FOR THE BALLROOM OR FOR THE AUDITORIUM, SORRY, FOR THE GYM.

ALSO, RESOURCES NEEDED BEYOND JUST THE INITIATIVE ITSELF, LIKE MARKETING, LIKE STAFF ASSISTANCE VIA SO DETAILED THAT THAT IS REQUIRED PARKING RESERVATIONS, TRAFFIC GUIDANCE, ANY NUMBER OF THINGS THAT MAY OR MAY NOT BE NECESSARY, DEPENDING ON THE INITIATIVE THAT YOU'RE TRYING TO IMPLEMENT, FOR INSTANCE, REFRESHMENT.

SO IT IS AT THE VARIOUS INITIATIVES AND EVENTS THAT WE'VE DONE UP TO THIS POINT.

SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN SPECIFIC ABOUT REFRESHMENTS AND FOOD.

OTHERS HAVEN'T WANTED ANY.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO US THAT WE MAKE SURE THAT THE REFRESHMENTS ARE WHAT YOU WANT AND THAT THE FOOD IS WHAT YOU WANT, IF THAT'S WHAT YOU DESIRE.

WE ALSO WANT TO BE ABLE TO PUT TOGETHER AN APPROPRIATE BUDGET FOR YOUR EVENT SO THAT YOU'RE NOT THINKING THAT IT'S GOING TO COST 5000 DOLLARS WHEN IT'S REALLY GOING TO COST 10, BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT YOU ONLY HAVE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF MONEY TO SPEND AND THAT YOU'RE MINDFUL OF THOSE DOLLARS.

WE WANT TO BE SURE THAT EVERYBODY'S ON THE SAME PAGE AS FAR AS WHAT THE BUDGET IS FOR THE FOR THE EVENT.

AND THEN IF THERE ARE SPECIAL REQUESTS FOR THE EVENT, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND THOSE AND THAT WE'RE ABLE TO BE SUCCESSFUL WITH THEM FOR YEARS.

JIM, CAN I HAVE THE NEXT SLIDE? ALL RIGHT, SO AS FAR AS PURCHASES FOR INITIATIVES ARE CONCERNED, YOU JUST, I THINK, SIMPLIFIED THINGS GREATLY IN TERMS OF THE PROCUREMENT WITH THE PASSING OF THE WAIVER OF PROCUREMENT FOR INITIATIVES ON FIRST READING.

SO WITH THAT, WE'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO WORK WITH YOU TO DO A COUPLE OF THINGS.

NUMBER ONE, YOU CAN CONTINUE TO WORK THROUGH STAFF FOR THE PROCUREMENT OF CERTAIN OF CERTAIN GOODS AND SERVICES, OR YOU CAN WORK THROUGH YOUR COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT LIAISON FOR THOSE FOR THAT PROCUREMENT OR YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF.

ALL RIGHT.

WE WILL STILL WORK FROM A REIMBURSEMENT STANDPOINT FOR INCIDENTAL PURCHASES FOR SOME OF THE SMALL THINGS THAT YOU'LL BE DOING.

BUT FOR THE LARGER PURCHASES, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO WORK WITH YOU FOR SOME OF THE DIRECT BILLING THAT YOU'VE ASKED FOR IN THE PAST.

AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO BE SURE THAT IN SPITE OF THE PROCUREMENT POLICIES BEING WAIVED, WE STILL HAVE TO ISSUE REQUISITIONS PRIOR TO PURCHASES.

WE STILL HAVE TO HAVE SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION.

IF PURCHASES AND SERVICES ARE ABOVE THE SIX HUNDRED DOLLAR LIMIT, WE STILL HAVE TO PROVIDE TEN, NINETY NINE TO THE VENDORS.

THERE ARE STILL CERTAIN THINGS THAT HAVE TO BE FOLLOWED, EVEN THOUGH YOU'VE OPTED OUT OF THE PROCUREMENT GUIDELINES.

SO YOU'RE ALREADY FAMILIAR WITH REIMBURSEMENT AND THE REIMBURSEMENT FORMS. WE JUST WANT TO BE SURE THAT THE SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION EXISTS IN ORDER TO FACILITATE YOUR INITIATIVES ON THE ON A GOING FORWARD BASIS.

AND SO, JIM, CAN I HAVE THE NEXT SLIDE? ALL RIGHT, SO INITIATIVE EXPENSES ARE IMPORTANT.

AGAIN, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE A REALISTIC BUDGET.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAPTURE ALL OF THE COSTS OF THE INITIATIVES AND TO MAKE SURE THAT THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT WE'RE BUDGETING FOR YOUR INITIATIVE MEETS YOUR NEEDS AND IS AN APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF MONE WHEN WE LOOK BACK AT THE AT THE END OF THIS FIRST YEAR.

SO THE TYPES OF THINGS THAT ARE GOING TO BE CHARGED FOR THE INITIATIVES AND THINGS

[03:50:01]

LIKE REFRESHMENTS, SUPPLIES, FACILITY, RENTAL FEES FOR NON CITY FACILITIES, IF YOU HAVE TO GO OUTSIDE OF THE CITY AND UTILIZE THE FACILITY AND THERE'S A FEE THAT'S GOING TO BE A PART OF THE INITIATIVE, SPEAKER FEES, EXPERT FEES, IF WE HAVE TO RENT FURNITURE OR EQUIPMENT, IF WE HAVE TO GET PERMITS, IF THEIR STAFF OVERTIME, IF THERE'S A DSL DETAIL, THE MARKETING OF DESIGN, PRINTING VIDEOS OF THEIR EFFORTS ARE REQUIRED.

THOSE THOSE THINGS WILL BE CHARGED TO THE INITIATIVE OR TO THE EVENT.

AND ONE THING THAT I THINK EACH OF YOU IS ASKING ABOUT IN THE PAST, BUT I WANT TO BE CLEAR ABOUT GOING FORWARD, IS THAT STAFF CANNOT BE ASKED TO VOLUNTEER THEIR TIME FOR INITIATIVES.

ITS STAFF IS IS IS THEY'RE WORKING.

THEY'RE WORKING.

THEY HAVE TO BE PAID.

ALL RIGHT.

SO THERE'S JUST THERE'S A FEW THINGS THAT WE WANT TO BE CLEAR ABOUT.

JIM, CAN I HAVE THE NEXT SLIDE? OUR NEXT STEP WOULD BE TO GET SOME INPUT FROM YOU TONIGHT AND BASED ON THAT INPUT, TO BRING A POLICY FORWARD HERE SHORTLY FOR YOUR ADOPTION SO THAT WE CAN BEGIN TO CONTINUE TO FACILITATE YOUR EVENTS IN A TIMELY MANNER, THAT AGAIN MEETS YOUR EXPECTATIONS AND GETS THE TYPE OF OUTCOMES FOR THE INITIATIVES AND EVENTS THAT YOU'RE SEEKING TO GET.

JIM, THE LAST SLIDE, I BELIEVE, IS FOR COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS.

AND AT THIS POINT, I'LL STOP SHARING THE SCREEN.

THANK YOU.

AND WE'LL LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR INPUT ON THE INITIATIVES AND EVENTS.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER.

AT THIS TIME, I'M ASKING ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS.

MR. BOLTON.

YES.

CAN YOU GO BACK TO THE SLIDE THAT HAS THE 120 DAYS, THE NOTICE FOR FOUR TO FIVE DAYS, ET CETERA? JIM, CAN YOU BRING THAT BACK UP TO THE COMMISSIONER? OK, I JUST WANTED TO LOOK AT IT FOR A MINUTE.

WHAT DOES SEVERAL WEEKS MEAN, IT SAYS ALLOWS SEVERAL WEEKS.

OF TIME TO COORDINATE EVEN FOR RELATIVELY SIMPLE EVENTS OR MEETINGS OR MORE COMPLEX ACTIVITIES OR EVENTS.

RIGHT.

SO IF YOU IF YOU KNOW THAT YOU HAVE A MEETING COMING UP, SAY YOU WANT TO HAVE A MEETING AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER AND TODAY'S FEBRUARY 10TH AND YOU WANT TO HAVE, YOU KNOW, TODAY THAT YOU WANT TO HAVE A MEETING APRI 1ST, THEN WE'D LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT IT AS SOON AS YOU KNOW ABOUT IT SO THAT WE CAN BEGIN TO MAKE SURE THAT THE ROOM IS AVAILABLE SO THAT WE CAN PROVIDE THE APPROPRIATE STAFF AND MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE PREPARED THAT THAT FOR THAT MORNING, AFTERNOON, EVENING, WHATEVER THE MEETING IS GOING TO BE TO TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE MEETING.

IF IF YOU WANT SOMETHING IN THE TAMO GROUND BECAUSE IT'S A QUARTERLY OR BECAUSE IT'S A BI MONTHLY PUBLICATION, WE'D LIKE AS MUCH ADVANCE NOTICE AS WE CAN GET IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN APPROPRIATELY ADVERTISE YOUR INITIATIVE OR EVENT IN THE MAMMOGRAM.

YOU KNOW, I'LL GIVE YOU I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE, COMMISSIONER GARLAND HAS ADVISED US THAT HE'S GOING TO DO A BIKE RIDE IN MAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO HE TOLD US THAT AT THE END OF JANUARY.

THAT'S GREAT.

THAT GIVES US A LOT OF A LOT OF TIME.

IF WE IF WE HAVE THAT AMOUNT OF TIME, WE FEEL CONFIDENT THAT WE CAN COORDINATE WITH BCO AND ALL OF THE PARTNERS THAT HE WANTS TO BRING IN TO THAT TO BE SURE THAT IT'S READY TO GO AND THAT IT'S ADVERTISED AND ALL OF THAT.

I THINK THAT'S PROBABLY A GOOD EXAMPLE OF A LARGER INITIATIVE.

IF IF YOU'RE HAVING A SMALLER INITIATIVE, SAY, A NEIGHBORHOOD FOOD TRUCK INITIATIVE, MAYBE YOU DON'T WANT THAT ADVERTISED.

MAYBE YOU JUST WANT TO ADVERTISE IT TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO FIND OUT FROM YOU.

AND THEN WITH YOU OR YOUR COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT LIAISON OR ONE OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE COORDINATORS, YOU KNOW, WE'LL GET THROUGH THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO PLAN THAT THE WAY THAT YOU WANT IT TO GO.

BUT IN ORDER TO DO THAT, WE JUST NEED AS MUCH NOTICE AS POSSIBLE.

[03:55:04]

YOU KNOW, WHEN WE HAVE WHEN WE HAVE PLENTY OF NOTICE, WE'RE VERY SUCCESSFUL.

WHEN WHEN WE DON'T HAVE AS MUCH NOTICE AS WE'D LIKE.

THAT'S WHEN WE HAVE TO RUSH AROUND AT THE END TO TRY TO GET THINGS DONE.

AND THOSE EVENTS TEND TO NOT COME OFF AS WELL AS THE ONES WHERE WE HAVE MORE ADEQUATE TIME TO PLAN.

THE GOAL IS SIMPLY TO MAKE SURE THAT WHATEVER THE INITIATIVE IS OR EVENT THAT IT COMES OFF THE WAY THAT YOU WANT IT TO.

I WOULD LIKE FOR THE AREA TO BE MORE SPECIFIC WITH TIME, JUST LIKE THERE'S A FOUR TO FIVE DAY NOTICE TO REQUEST EVEN FOR SIMPLE EVENTS, MAYBE YOU COULD DO 30 DAYS OR 45 DAYS FOR SIMPLE EVENTS TO THE SEVERAL WEEKS.

JUST SOUNDS TO DATE.

SO I THINK.

RIGHT, A 30 DAY LANGUAGE FOR SIMPLE EVENTS WOULD WOULD SUFFICE.

OK.

AND, YOU KNOW, COMMISSIONER, THAT IT'S NOT SPECIFIC TONIGHT BECAUSE WE'RE ASKING YOU FOR JUST THE INFORMATION THAT YOU JUST PROVIDED.

SO THANK YOU FOR THAT.

YOU KNOW, THAT'S THAT'S THE KIND OF FEEDBACK THAT WE NEED IN ORDER TO DEVELOP A POLICY THAT WORKS FOR YOU.

AND AGAIN, THE POINT OF THIS IS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE INITIATIVES THAT YOU WANT TO DO, THE EVENTS THAT YOU WANT TO DO, THAT THEY GET DONE AND MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, SERVE THE COMMUNITY THE WAY THAT YOU WANT THEM TO WORK.

OK, GO BACK TO THE SLIDE, WHICH SAYS.

THAT STUFF, WHEN STUFF HAS TO BE PRESENT AT THE MEETINGS YOU MADE, MENTION I WAS LIKE YOUR STUFF.

IS THERE STUFF THAT'S THERE THAT CAN VOLUNTEER? RIGHT.

OK, SO LET'S LET'S SAY THAT I HAVE AN EVENT.

IT'S THE MARIJUANA SUMMIT OF THE COMMUNITY CENTER AND STUFF IS THERE.

AND LET'S SAY THE STAFF GETS PAID FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR.

THE EVENT, WHAT, THREE HOURS? DOES THAT MEAN THAT FORTY FIVE DOLLARS IS COMING FROM THE INITIATIVE FUNDS TO PAY THAT STAFF MEMBER.

COMMISSIONER, WE'VE GOT TO WORK THROUGH THE COST OF STAFFING FOR YOUR INITIATIVES, BUT HERE'S HERE'S WHAT I'LL SAY TO YOU.

WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH IS TO YOU, FOR INSTANCE, STAFF.

OVER TIME, WHAT WE TRY TO DO IS AVOID STAFF OVERTIME.

AND IF WE HAVE ENOUGH NOTICE FROM YOU ABOUT THE EVENT, THEN WE CAN SCHEDULE STAFF APPROPRIATELY, GIVEN THEIR REGULAR SCHEDULES TO HAVE THEM THERE IN A NON OVERTIME SITUATION.

IF THEY'RE THERE IN A NON OVERTIME SITUATION, I DON'T KNOW THAT WE'VE WORKED OUT EXACTLY HOW OR IF WE WOULD CHARGE THEIR PERSONNEL COSTS TO THE INITIATIVE.

BUT I THINK IF OVERTIME IS REQUIRED TO PUT ON AN INITIATIVE, WE WOULD CHARGE THE OVERTIME.

WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO IS ACCOMPLISH PLANNING THESE THINGS IN A WAY THAT THEY FALL WITHIN THE CURRENT STAFFING SO THAT WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO CHARGE OVERTIME.

OK, OK, SO SO YOU WOULD LET US KNOW BEFORE THAT THIS IS GOING TO REQUIRE STAFF TO HAVE TO WORK OVERTIME AND YOU PUT THAT IN THE BUDGET.

RIGHT.

AND SO THAT'S THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT, COMMISSIONER.

AND IF WE HAVE ENOUGH NOTICE, THEN WE CAN STAFF APPROPRIATELY SO WE CAN SCHEDULE STAFF APPROPRIATELY SO THAT THERE WOULDN'T BE OVERTIME INCURRED, WHICH IS ALWAYS OUR GOAL.

OK, CAN PERMITS BE EXEMPTED FROM THE INITIATIVE EXPENSES? WE'LL HAVE TO LOOK AT THAT.

I DON'T I DON'T KNOW THAT I DON'T I DON'T I CAN'T THINK OF AN INITIATIVE THAT ANY OF YOU HAVE DONE THAT HAS REQUIRED A PERMIT, BUT I'M GOING TO GO BACK AND I HAVE TO RESEARCH THAT A LITTLE BIT WITH STAFF.

BUT WE'LL HAVE TO WE'LL JUST HAVE TO RESEARCH THAT.

I DON'T I DON'T KNOW THAT PERMITS ARE A BIG DEAL OR BECAUSE I SO SO IN THE PAST, I'VE I'VE ALWAYS BEEN OF THE SCHOOL OF THOUGHT THAT, YOU KNOW, THE CITY COMMISSION, WHEN WE MAKE RECORDS REQUESTS, WE WE DON'T GET PAID FOR IT OR WE DON'T PAY FOR THE RECORDS REQUEST AS COMMISSIONER.

OR, FOR INSTANCE, IF WE'RE DOING AN EVENT, WE DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A PERMIT LIKE

[04:00:07]

SPECIAL USE PERMITS, LET'S SAY.

BUT THE VICE MAYOR GLOBALSTAR WANTS TO DO A FOOD TRUCK EVENT AT WESTWOOD 24.

THEN THERE IS A SPECIAL EVENTS PERMIT THAT WOULD NEED TO BE PULLED AND YOU HAVE TO BE A THOUSAND DOLLARS, TEN FOOD STAMPS AND EVENTS LATER OR 40.

THAT'S EVENTS LATER.

FUZZY MATH, HE'D BE OUT OF MONEY.

SO I THINK THE DIRECTION SHOULD BE TO ELIMINATE HAVING TO PAY FOR PERMITS OR HAVING TO PULL THEM FOR FOR EVENTS.

LIKE ONCE THE CITY KNOWS THAT WE'RE DOING AN EVENT, I DON'T THINK THAT PERMITS WE SHOULD BE PAYING FOR PERMITS.

OK, WELL, COMMISSIONER, LET ME LET ME TALK SOME MORE TO STAFF, BECAUSE I KNOW, FOR INSTANCE, EVEN FOR OUR OWN EVENTS, WE HAVE TO PAY FOR PERMITS.

BUT LIKE I SAID, LET ME TALK THAT THROUGH WITH STAFF.

WE HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEAR.

AND, OF COURSE, WE KNOW THAT EVERYBODY GETS PERMITS FOR FOOD TRUCK EVENTS.

AND SO AS WE LOOK AT MAKING FOOD TRUCKS MORE ACCESSIBLE TO THE TO THE COMMUNITY, MAYBE WE CAN WORK THROUGH SOME OF THAT WHEN MAXINE BRINGS BACK LEGISLATION FOR THE FOOD TRUCKS AS WELL.

OK.

NOW, THE.

THE SLIDE WHERE WE TALKED ABOUT.

PROCUREMENT.

YEAH, SO I'M SORRY, MY BRAIN IS IT IS IS IT'S THAT TIME OF THE EVENING, COMMISSIONER.

YEAH.

MOVING SLOWER THAN I SHOULD BE.

OK, PROCUREMENT.

SO I THINK IF WE'RE GOING TO DO REIMBURSEMENTS, IT'S REIMBURSEMENTS REGARDLESS OF THE THE PRICE TAG THAT IS ON THE ITEM, YOU KNOW.

SO IF IF I GO OUT AND I DO AN EVENT FOR FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS OR FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS, I NEED TO PAY FOR THAT EVENT MYSELF AND THEN ASK THE CITY FOR REIMBURSEMENT, YOU KNOW, SO, YOU KNOW, SAYING BIG TICKET ITEMS. YEAH, WE WILL GO TO THE CITY.

THE CITY WILL WILL DIRECT BILLED LITTLE ITEMS. THE CITY MAY NOT GO.

I THINK I THINK THAT'S THAT'S THAT'S FUZZY.

AND I'D BE MORE COMFORTABLE WITH EVERYTHING.

JUST SEEK A REIMBURSEMENT FOR IT.

OK.

IF THERE'S NO OBJECTIONS TO WHAT I DISCUSSED THAT I WOULD LIKE THOSE STUDENTS TO COME BACK IN THE.

AND THE POLICY THAT THAT THAT YOU HAVE, SO IT'S SO IT'S A MATTER OF TELLING YOU THAT WE THAT THAT'S WHAT WE WANT AND NOT NECESSARILY EMPOWERING YOU TO GO AND RESEARCH AND THEN COME BACK TO TELL US THAT WE CAN BE DONE.

SO IF THERE IS ANY OBJECTIONS, THERE IS OBJECTIONS.

BUT IF THERE IS NONE AND THAT'S THE DIRECTION.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND? I DO.

COMMISSIONER, THANK YOU.

THAT'S GOOD FEEDBACK.

OK, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

ARE YOU COMPLETE? ARE YOU DONE, MR. BOLTON? YES, MY FABULOUS MR.. COMMISSIONER GARLAND, BEFORE WE PROCEED TO COMMISSIONER GARLAND, I'M GOING TO JUST HAVE EVERYONE TAKE NOTE OF THE TIME.

IT IS CURRENTLY 11 17.

WE HAVE A HARD STOP THAT IS SET BY OUR AUDIENCES AT 11 THIRTY UNLESS WE HAVE A MOTION TO EXTEND SO THAT IF WE DO, WE'LL EXTEND.

WE ALSO NEED TO I BELIEVE THIS IS CORRECT.

JAMES WILL LET US KNOW.

WE NEED TO TAKE A MOMENT TO HAVE A RESET ON OUR VIRTUAL.

SO KEEP THAT IN MIND, PLEASE, AND.

MR. GOODVIN.

THAT'S WHEN I HEARD.

ALL RIGHT.

THE SECOND MAKING A FRIENDLY AMENDMENT TO THAT MOTION TO EXTEND TO MIDNIGHT.

I'M SORRY.

TIME'S 60 TIMES, AND THE VICE PRESIDENT WOULD SUFFER THE MOST, IF NOT WHAT HE

[04:05:01]

WANTS.

I'M TO WHAT ANYONE SAYING RIGHT NOW KNOW THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF THIS.

MR. BOLTON IS ASKING YOU, VICE MAYOR, TO EXPAND YOUR MOTION.

DO YOU HAVE THE TIME TO START LOOKING TO EXPAND TO OTHER BUSINESS? THAT'S FROM TODAY'S ACCOMPLISHED.

SO BOTH BOLTON REJECTS THE ACTUAL TIME BEFORE MIDNIGHT.

IS THERE A SECOND TO THE.

YES.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER PLOTKA.

ROLL CALL ON THIS.

TAKE A ROLL CALL, COMMISSIONER GARLAND, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING AT 11, 30, NO EXTEND UNTIL THE BUSINESS IS COMPLETED, OK? MOST APPROVE.

THANK YOU.

WHATEVER.

YES.

YOUR YES VOTE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WE'VE GOT TO GO WITH THE.

YES, YES.

THANK YOU, MR. BOLTON.

YEAH.

BILL OF US, YES, OUR MAYOR GOMEZ, YES, MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY, FIVE TO ZERO, THANK YOU.

AND AT 11.

WE'LL RESET AFTER YOU DON'T NEED TO RESET, OK, TAKING CARE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, COMMISSIONER GARLAND YOU.

YEAH, I THINK WE'RE HEADED IN A DECENT DIRECTION WITH THIS, BUT THERE'S TOO MANY ITEMS TO COVER IN ONE DAY, SO OR ESPECIALLY IN A TIME THAT WE HAVE NOW.

SO I THINK WE SHOULD DISCUSS THIS AT ANOTHER MEETING OR A WORKSHOP SO THAT WE CAN DIG INTO THE DETAILS.

LOOKING AT THE SLIDE EARLY.

I KNOW IT SAID SOMETHING LIKE, THE CITY PUTS ON 40 EVENTS.

PERHAPS THE CITY SHOULD MAYBE PUT ONLY 30 EVENTS TOGETHER AND THEN THE REMAINING 10 EVENTS SHOULD BE A COMMISSION INITIATIVE EVENTS THAT WE HAVE.

AND THAT WAY THERE'S NO ISSUE WITH OVERTIME HOURS OR OTHER HOURS.

THOSE HOURS WOULD ALREADY BE DEDICATED TO COMMISSION INITIATIVE TYPE EVENTS.

SO THERE'S A LOT TO DISCUSS HERE.

AND I THINK WE SHOULD JUST HAVE A SEPARATE WORKSHOP ON THIS TO DIG INTO THE DETAILS AND JUST LOOK AT THE STRUCTURE OF HOW WE DO THINGS.

THANK YOU, CITY MANAGER.

OH, I JUST WANTED TO SAY TO COMMISSIONER GARLAND, YES, I MEAN, I THINK THAT'S A VERY APPROPRIATE DISCUSSION TO HAVE AND I'M SURE THAT I'M SURE THAT THE PARKS FOLKS WOULD BE VERY, VERY HAPPY TO HAVE THAT CONVERSATION.

AND, YES, WE DIDN'T EXPECT TO ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING TONIGHT OTHER THAN TO REALLY BEGIN TO GET YOUR FEEDBACK SO THAT WE COULD BRING A POLICY BACK TO YOU, THAT THEN YOU COULD GIVE US ADDITIONAL FEEDBACK ON SO WE COULD FINALIZE.

BUT I AGREE WITH YOU, COMMISSIONER.

I THINK THAT WOULD BE A VERY HELPFUL DISCUSSION FOR EVERYONE TO HAVE AS WE TRY TO RE PRIORITIZE OUR FOCUS ON PROVIDING THE COMMUNITY WITH THESE TYPE OF EVENTS.

SO THANKS.

I JUST WANTED TO SAY REALLY THANK YOU FOR THAT.

ALL RIGHT.

THANKS.

AND CAN I HAVE A COPY OF THIS POWERPOINT AND ALL THE POWER POINTS AS WELL? CERTAINLY WELCOME TO ALL OF US.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

GOOD QUESTION.

AND I NOW HAVE A THANK YOU.

I WAS GOING TO ASK TO SEE WHAT THESE 40 COMMUNITY EVENTS ARE.

SO I THINK COMMISSIONER GARLAND JUST TOOK CARE OF ALL THAT.

SO WE'LL WAIT FOR THE WORKSHOP.

BUT I WOULD BE CURIOUS TO SEE WHAT THEY ARE AND WHAT THE THIRTY ONE HUNDRED THIRTY PLUS CLASSES ARE JUST TO SEE AND MAYBE HOW MUCH PARTICIPATION.

I MEAN OBVIOUSLY NOW IS NOT IS NOT THE NORM SO TO SPEAK.

BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT AT ANOTHER TIME AND AN EARLIER TIME OF DAY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

MR. TIGER HAS SAID THAT HE WILL FORWARD THE POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS TO US SHORTLY.

MS., YEAH, I JUST WANTED TO SAY.

NEMANJA.

I GOT A I GOT A MUTE, SO YOU DON'T GET THE FEEDBACK, I JUST WANTED TO SAY TO COMMISSIONER POLACCO AND TO COMMISSIONER GARLAND AGAIN AND CERTAINLY TO ALL THE COMMISSIONERS AND THE MAYOR KNOW PRIORITIZING AND REALLY EVALUATING SOME OF

[04:10:04]

THE THINGS THAT WE'RE DOING THAT MAYBE WE DON'T NEED TO BE DOING ANY MORE IS IS REALLY GOING TO BE VITAL GOING FORWARD.

AND SO PARTICULARLY WITH EVENTS, YOU KNOW, WE'VE TALKED ABOUT IMPROVING EVENTS.

WE'VE TALKED ABOUT HAVING THE DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION GROUP HAVING A ROLE IN PLANNING EVENTS FOR MARTIN LUTHER KING AND FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH AND REALLY REORIENTING OUR APPROACH TO SOME OF THOSE THINGS.

AND WE WANT, YOU KNOW, THE INITIATIVES TO SUPPLEMENT.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I THINK THAT THERE ARE THERE ARE MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO DO TO SUPPLANT SOM OF THE THINGS THAT WE'VE BEEN DOING FOR A LONG TIME THAT MAYBE WE JUST DON'T NEED TO DO ANYMORE.

SO I THINK THAT THIS IS A REALLY GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO IMPLEMENT THE INITIATIVES THAT YOU WANT TO SEE GOING FORWARD AND TO NOT BE DOING SOME OF THE STUFF THAT WE JUST DON'T NEED TO DO AND TO REALLY TAKE A LOOK AT FRESHENING UP THE EVENTS THAT HAPPENED CITYWIDE AND DOING SO, TRY TO MAKE THEM MAYBE MORE COMPLEMENTARY TO SOME OF THE STUFF THAT YOU WANT TO DO AS INDIVIDUALS O COLLABORATING WITH ONE ANOTHER AND WITH THIRD PARTY PARTNERS.

SO I THINK YOU'RE ALL ON THE RIGHT TRACK AS FAR AS WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WANT TO SEE, AS FAR AS WHAT I'M HEARING.

AND I WOULD CERTAINLY ENCOURAGE MORE OF THAT CONVERSATION.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT, I SEE THAT WE HAVE NO OTHER COMMENTS, I BELIEVE CITY MANAGER, HOPEFULLY YOU HAVE RECEIVED ENOUGH DIRECTION TO BE ABLE TO GO FORWARD AND BRING BACK WHAT WHENEVER IT COMES BACK TO US? YES, MADAM MAYOR, THAT'S A GOOD START FOR US.

AND WE'LL BE BACK TO YOU SOON WITH WITH SOME MORE DETAIL.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

WE WILL NOW MOVE ON TO 13 BIG DISCUSSION RELATED TO CONVENING THE CHARTER BOARD.

[13.b. Discussion related to convening the Charter Board]

SO THEY WORK FOR US.

THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING, AARON.

COMMISSION 10 FOR JONATHAN FOR THE RECORD.

AND WE JUST WANTED TO BRING TO YOUR ATTENTION TONIGHT THAT WE DO HAVE A PRESENTATION, JIM, PUTTING IT UP RIGHT NOW.

BUT WE WANTED TO BRING TO YOUR ATTENTION TONIGHT THAT TWENTY TWENTY ONE IS A YEAR IN WHICH WE NEED TO CONVENE OUR CHARTER BOARD.

THE LAST TIME WE CONVENED A CHARTER BOARD WAS IN 2015 AND 2016.

SO THE CHARTER BOARD IS THERE TO DO A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF WHAT WE HAVE IN THE CHARTER.

NOW THEY LOOK TO IMPROVE IT, REFINE IT, WHILE ALSO PRESERVING THE HEALTH, WELFARE AND THE SAFETY OF THE INHABITANTS OF THE CITY, WHICH IS STRAIGHT FROM THE BRONX CHARTER.

AND LIKE I SAID IT, EVERY SIX YEARS NEXT WEEK.

THE CHARTER FOR THE FIVE MEMBERS, FOUR OF WHICH WILL RESIDE IN ONE OF EACH OF YOUR DISTRICTS, AND THEN ONE WILL BE AT LARGE BY THE MAYOR AND THE APPOINTMENTS ARE FOR ONE YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO WE'RE GETTING READY TO GO OUT FOR OUR ADVERTISING FOR THIS, WE'RE HOPING TO HAVE THE HAVE AN ABUNDANCE OF APPLICATIONS FOR YOU TO CHOOSE FROM BY USING SOME DIFFERENT AVENUES UNLESS YOU GUYS HAVE SOME OTHER OPTIONS USING SOCIAL MEDIA, USING OUR EMAIL SYSTEM, USING THE WEBSITE AND POSSIBLY STILL IN THE NEWSPAPER.

WE'RE HOPING TO GET YOU SOME APPLICANTS BY EARLY MARCH SO YOU CAN LET US KNOW BY MARCH 10.

THIS IS A TENTATIVE DATE THAT WE'RE WORKING WITH AND THEN WE'RE HOPING TO BE ABLE TO POINT THEM AT THE MARCH.

TWENTY FOURTH MEETING.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO MEET REGULARLY.

THE ONLY THING THAT THE CHARTER SAYS IS THAT THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO MEET REGULARLY, SO WE'RE HOPING TO SEE THEM TOWARDS THE END OF APRIL, IF POSSIBLE.

WE DO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF FLEXIBILITY IN THAT UNTIL THEY'RE DONE REVIEWING THE CHARTER.

THAT COULD TAKE THREE MONTHS.

THAT CAN TAKE SIX MONTHS.

THAT CAN TAKE UP TO NINE MONTHS.

BUT THEY DO.

THEY ARE APPOINTED FOR A YEAR.

SO NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

PART OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS IN THE FIRST PART OF THIS IS THAT PRIOR TO THE FIRST MEETING OF THE CHARTER COMMISSION, THE MEMBERS WERE GOING TO ASK THAT THE CITY COMMISSION SUBMIT ITEMS TO STAFF THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE CHARTER BOARD REVIEW.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS WILL GO TO THE CHARTER BOARD, THE CHARTER, THE BOARD WILL THEN EVALUATE THOSE AND THEY'LL MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS AND WE'LL PROVIDE THE STAFF OR THE CITY ATTORNEY WILL PROVIDE A REPORT TO THE CITY COMMISSION.

THE CITY COMMISSION WILL NEED TO MEET AND DISCUSS THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS.

THEN THE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE BROUGHT FORWARD BY ORDINANCE AND THEY OBVIOUSLY NEED TO READ THINGS BEFORE THEY ARE SENT TO INCLUSION ON THE BALLOT.

SO THERE IS A TIME FRAME THAT WE HAVE TO BE WORKING WITHIN AND THAT'S WHY WE'RE BRINGING IT TO YOU NOW.

SO IF YOU CAN, NEXT SLIDE.

I HAVE A HARD DEADLINE TO ADOPT THE SECOND READING BY THE END OF APRIL, AND THEN

[04:15:02]

WE'LL SUBMIT THE BALLOTS FOR INCLUSION NO LATER THAN EARLY JUNE OF TWENTY TWENTY TWO, AND THEN THEY'LL BE INCLUDED ON THE BALLOT FOR NOVEMBER OF TWENTY EIGHTEEN.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE FOR YOU.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? THANK YOU, JIM.

VICE MAYOR AND I GIVE INSTRUCTIONS TO CITY MANAGER TO BEGIN THE PROCESS OF OBTAINING INFORMATION REGARDING CITY AT LARGE FOR COMMISSIONER B PRIOR TO THE APPOINTMENTS OF THIS BOARD, SO THAT BY THE TIME WE APPOINT THE BOARD FOR IN PLACE, WE CAN HAVE THIS INFORMATION ON HAND VERSUS WE'RE WAITING FOR THE BOARD TO TAKE PLACE AND THEN PROVIDING THEM OR GATHERIN INFORMATION.

SECONDLY, HOW DO WE GET TO CHANGE ON HOW THE MAYOR VOTES LAST AND GET INTO THE ROTATION LIKE ALL OF US? IS THAT A CHARTER ISSUE THAN A CODE ISSUE? THIS IS POPULAR, THE MANAGER OR CITY ATTORNEY TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

BUT THE FIRST ONE WAS ACTION.

THE SECOND ONE IS A QUESTION AS TO HOW WE CAN IMPLEMENT SOMETHING OR CHANGE SOMETHING THAT WOULD REQUIRE THE MAYOR BE IN TH ROTATION VERSUS BEING ALWAYS.

THANK YOU.

NOW, OF COURSE, DO THE MANAGER.

YEAH, I.

I WAS JUST GOING TO SAY, FIRST OF ALL, BEISNER, AS FAR AS THE RUNNING OF LARGE DISTRICTS, WE'VE I THINK THE CITY CLERK IS ACTUALLY ALREADY BEGUN LOOKING AT THAT UNDERSTANDING THAT WE KNEW THAT WOULD BE AN ISSUE THAT YOU WOULD WANT TO PUT FORWARD.

SO, YES, WE'LL HAVE THAT INFORMATION FOR YOU, YOU KNOW, JUST AS SOON AS IT'S AVAILABLE UNTIL THE ENTIRE COMMISSION REPORT.

AND THEN THE ISSUE OF WHEN THE MAYOR VOTES.

I'M NOT LOOKING AT THE CODE RIGHT NOW, BUT I DON'T BELIEVE THAT'S A CHARTER.

ISSUE.

AND, YOU KNOW, IF YOU IF THE COMMISSION WANTS TO CHANGE THE CODE, THE COMMISSION CAN CHANGE THE CODE.

THE QUESTION FOR THE ATTORNEY, CAN WE ADD THAT TO THE NEXT AGENDA MEETING? YES, THANK YOU.

SO THAT WAS YOU THAT.

MR. GARLAND, I THINK I FORGOT MY QUESTION.

WHO'S GOING TO PROVIDE THE WHO'S GOING TO EDUCATE THE CHARTER MEMBERS ON HOW TO READ AND UNDERSTAND THE CHARTER? IS THAT GOING TO BE DONE BY THE CITY ATTORNEY, BY INDEPENDENT PARTY? WHO'S GOING TO DO THAT? YEAH, IT WILL BE DONE BY, OBVIOUSLY, THE CITY ATTORNEY.

IT IS ME OR SOMEONE ELSE GENERALLY.

FROM MY EXPERIENCE, IT IS A PARTICULAR THIS USED ITEM THAT THE VICE MAYOR IS DISCUSSING ABOUT THE DISTRICT ISSUE.

EXPERTS OUT THERE YOU BRING IN TO GIVE A SHORT PRESENTATION ON THAT ISSUE.

YOU KNOW, IS MYSELF AND OTHER MEMBERS OF STAFF BELIEVE THAT THE EXPERT WILL WOULD HELP CLARIFY THAT ISSUE WILL BE MADE.

BUT, YOU KNOW, THERE'S THERE'S ISSUES THAT WE CAN HANDLE INTERNALLY.

THERE'S ISSUES THAT WE KNOW SAY, HEY, LET'S BRING AN EXPERT, JUST MAKE A DIFFERENT CHOICE.

WELL, YOU KNOW, YOU'RE THERE.

MR. GAGNON SON WAS DROPPED OFF.

I DON'T KNOW IF ANYBODY ELSE WAS DROPPED OFF.

NO.

I AM NOT GOING HOME.

CAN I HEAR YOU ALL YOUR.

YES.

OK.

YEAH.

I DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING BEYOND THE CITY ATTORNEY THING THAT EXPERTS CAN BE BROUGHT IN TO TALK ABOUT WHAT VICE MAYOR BROUGHT UP.

AND THEN I DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING ELSE AFTER THAT.

YES.

IT DEPENDS ON THE TOPIC.

IT IS FOOD.

EDUCATION IS NEEDED BY MEMBERS.

THE COMMISSION WILL MAKE A DECISION TO BRING ANYONE WHO WE FEEL IS AN EXPERT IN

[04:20:04]

A PARTICULAR AREA.

OBVIOUSLY, REDISTRICTING THAT DISCUSSION AS TO IMPACT DIFFERENT IMPACT.

AND YOU MAY WANT SOMEONE TO COME IN AND TALK ABOUT THOSE IMPACTS.

ALL RIGHT.

AND THEN WHAT ABOUT MAKING CERTAIN POSITIONS, CHARTER OFFICER POSITIONS? WOULD THAT BE THE RIGHT TIME TO HAVE THAT DISCUSSION OR ANYTHING ELSE ON THE CHARTER? THAT'S OBVIOUSLY THAT'S THAT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TIME TO HAVE THAT DISCUSSION IF YOU INTEND TO MAKE THAT RECOMMENDATION.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

GOOD.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. BOLTON.

THANK YOU, OUR FABULOUS MAYOR, CITY CLERK, YOU YOU MADE MENTION OF THE OF EACH COMMISSIONER HAVING AN APPOINTMENT.

GO BACK TO THAT SLIDE IF YOU CAN.

OK, SO FOUR MEMBERS SHALL RESIDE IN EACH OF THE DIFFERENT DISTRICTS AND EACH MEMBER SHALL BE APPOINTED BY THE COMMISSIONER OR FRO THAT DISTRICT FORCE OF OFFICE.

IS THAT ETCHED IN STONE SOMEWHERE? OR AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT THIS IS.

IT'S NOT A COMMISSION, BUT IT IS REAL.

AND SO IT'S WRITTEN IN THE CHARTER THAT THE PERSON HAS TO LIVE IN EACH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT, CORRECT? CORRECT.

DOES IT DOES IT SAY IF THE COMMISSIONER CANNOT FIND SOMEBODY IN THE COMMISSION DISTRICT, THEN THEY CAN GO OUTSIDE OF THEIR DISTRICT AND JUST KNOW THE PLACE AND THE PLANNING? YOUR LANGUAGE IS PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD IN THE TITLE OF SO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO BE A CITY ATTORNEY OR CITY CLERK OR JUST SEND ME THE PORTION OF THE CHARTER THAT SAYS THAT.

OK, WELL, NOW THE THE BOARD WOULD BE CONVENED AND EACH CITY COMMISSIONER AND THE BOARD WILL CONVENE AND THE BOARD.

DO WE HAVE TO HAVE A BOARD OR CAN BE CITY COMMISSION AT ITS OWN CHARTER REVIEW? THE CHARTER REQUIRE A BOARD IS SPECIFIED SECTION EIGHT ONE ZERO ONE SPECIAL FOR THE CHARTER REVIEW.

THERE'S NO FLEXIBILITY IN THAT LANGUAGE.

SO WE HAVE TO HAVE A BOARD.

RIGHT.

AND THE COMMISSION CAN COUNT, CANNOT SERVE, AS THE BOARD KNOW ALSO.

AND THEN THE CHARTER REVIEW BOARD BRINGS.

RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE CITY COMMISSION.

BUT THE CITY COMMISSION CAN ALSO HAVE ITS OWN RECOMMENDATIONS AS WELL, RIGHT? YES, COMMISSION CITY COMMISSION CAN HAVE ITS OWN RECOMMENDATIONS.

THEY CAN REJECT THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE CHARTER REVIEW BOARD.

IN FACT, THE LAW PERMITS THE CITY COMMISSION AT ANY TIME TO PROPOSE ANY CHARTER SO IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE WITH THE CHARTER.

GOOD.

OK, AND THEN TO GO BACK TO THE SLIDE FOR THE NOVEMBER FOR THE NOVEMBER 2022.

BALUT.

OK, SO THE THE HARD DEADLINE.

SO THE HARD DEADLINE FOR THE SECOND READ IS OK, SO JUST GET ON THE NOVEMBER 20 22 BALLOT DEADLINE IS WE HAVE TO BRING THAT BY APRIL 20, APRIL 22, THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT THE BALLOT QUESTIONS TO THE SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS OFFICE IN EARLY JUNE.

I'M ASKING TO HAVE THE SECOND READING OF THE ORDINANCES COMPLETED BY THE END OF APRIL TO GIVE ME TIME TO PREPARE THEM, TO SEND THEM TO THE SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS AND TO MAKE ANY ADJUSTMENTS.

I NEED TO DURING THE MONTH OF MAY, PRIOR ELECTION TO THE DEADLINE.

[04:25:03]

OK, YES, OK, SO THEN FROM A CITY ATTORNEY POINT OF VIEW, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU'RE STILL HERE? I MEAN, IF YOU'RE STILL HERE IN 2022? AND WHAT WHAT WOULD THE TIMELINE BE FOR YOU TO, LIKE, DRAFT QUESTIONS AND THAT SORT OF STUFF? WELL, OUR GOAL IS ALWAYS WHEN THE TO BOARD IS WORTH, THE RECOMMENDATION SHOULD COME TO THE CITY COMMISSION.

AND SO FULL OF QUESTIONS FROM AT LEAST, YOU KNOW, WE CAN YOU KNOW, BECAUSE IT COULD BE A SIMPLE QUESTION, DOESN'T HAVE TO BE COMPLICATED.

GENERALLY, THE LAW WITH OUR CHARTER QUESTIONS, JUST LIKE ANY BALLOT QUESTION, BE VERY SIMPLE IN PLAIN ENGLISH.

RIGHT.

SO IF THE CHILD WILL COMPLETE THIS LIST, WE CAN ADD TO THE NATION OF THE RECOMMENDATION.

ALSO PROPOSE A QUESTION THAT MAY BE SUBMITTED TO THE ELECTORS.

OH, IT'S ALL RIGHT.

AND THEN WHAT ARE THE QUALIFICATIONS OF THE BOARD MEMBERS? DOES IT SAY IN THE CHARTER OR THE LIKE THE PLANNING BOARD AS THEY HAVE TO BE COMMUNITY ACTIVISTS OR EACH OF THE ONLY COMMISSION ONLY REQUIREMENT? THEY HAVE TO BE VOTERS.

THEY HAVE TO BE A VOTER IN THE CITY.

AND THEY ALSO IN THE FOUR RESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS, THEY HAVE TO LIVE IN THAT DISTRICT WITH THE EXCEPTION EXCEPTION OF ONE MEMBER.

WHAT THE REQUIREMENT IS, IS REALLY WHAT REQUIREMENT WILL LEAD TO A VOTE IN A VOTE.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE.

WE'LL HAVE MORE FOR YOU SHORTLY.

THANK YOU.

SEEING THAT, THERE ARE NO FURTHER QUESTIONS CURRENTLY.

ELEVEN.

FORTY.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IF YOU'RE NOT AT HOME, GET HOME SAFELY.

YOU'RE HOME.

GOOD NIGHT, EVERYBODY.

AND A VALENTINE'S DAY PRESIDENTS DAY AM THINKING ABOUT THE FAMILY.

AND HAVE A GOOD NIGHT, EVERYONE.
