THANK YOU GENTLEMEN. GOOD MORNING. GOOD MORNING AARON. JACK STRAIN PUBLIC SERVICE DIRECTOR MARK MASON FINANCIAL SERVICE DIRECTOR. OK. SO WE HAVE TEMPER RESOLUTION TR 1 3 2 7 5 APPROVAL OF THE MARKER GROUP CHANGE OR ON MAY 8TH 2019 RESOLUTION ARE 2 0 9 1 9 DASH THIRTY FIVE HAS ACCEPTED AN ASSIGNMENT OF MARKER CONSTRUCTION AGREEMENT ON MAY 8 2019 RESOLUTION ARE 2 0 1 9 THIRTY SIX TERMINATED THE CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT BETWEEN THE CITY AND 81. PRIOR TO THE TERMINATION OF THE AGREEMENT AGREEMENT 81 HAD APPROVED CHANGE ORDERS 1 THROUGH 4 WITH MARKER SHOWN BELOW CITY ACCEPTED THE ASSIGNED CONTRACT WITH THE ORIGINAL CONTRACT AMOUNT OF 8 MILLION 1 9 3 8 5 4 THE NEGOTIATED COSTS OF THE CHANGES IS 8.

EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED THIRTY ONE THOUSAND NINE FIFTY EIGHT AND IT INCLUDES CHANGE ORDERS 1 2 3 AND FOUR OR A TOTAL OF 1 MILLION FORTY ONE NINETY THREE ADDED TO THE BASE CONTRACT OF 8 1 9 3 8 5 4. THE REVISED CONTRACT IS NOW 9 2 3 5 7 5 7. THIS SPREADSHEET BASICALLY SHOWS YOU THE ORIGINAL BUDGET VERSUS THE REVISED BUDGET NOTICE THE BOTTOM NUMBER IS OBVIOUSLY STAYING THE SAME SO WE'RE STILL WITHIN OUR ORIGINAL RESOLUTION AUTHORIZATION FUNDING AND. THAT'S KIND OF IN A LONG RUN WHO APPROVED TR 1 3 2 7 5 AUTHORIZING THE EXECUTION OF CHANGE ORDERS 1 THROUGH 5 WITH MARKER GROUP FOR THE AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED 1 0 4 1 9 0 3 INCREASING ASSIGNED CONTRACT FROM 8 1 9 3 8 5 4 2 9 2 3 5 7 5 7 THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ALL RIGHT. OKAY. SEEING THAT THERE ARE NO QUESTIONS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ALL RIGHT. WELL I MIGHT HAVE SPOKEN TO SAY THAT LIKE I'M GONNA BE QUITE CLOSE. MAN.

THANK YOU. YOU'RE MY GOT. I NOTICED IN REVIEWING THERE WERE A LOT OF CHARGES FOR DELAYS. CAN YOU GIVE ME. DID YOU HEAR ME. YEAH I CAN HEAR YOU NOW. OK. SORRY. THERE WERE A LOT OF CHARGES FOR DELAYS WAS THAT DUE TO OUR PART OR WAS THAT DUE TO THE PROBLEM WITH A D ONE. THAT WAS SOMETHING ELSE THAT'S DUE TO THE PROBLEM WITH 81 AND THAT'S WHY WE NO LONGER HAVE A CONTRACT WITH 81. OK. AND WE WERE NOT FULFILLING THEIR DUTIES AND WE HAD TO ABSORB THOSE COSTS FOR DELAYS. YEAH I REALLY DON'T KNOW. IT'S PART OF THE AGREEMENT. YES THE LAW THE LONG STORY IS AND SAM CAN CHIME IN

[00:05:02]

HERE WE DISCUSSED ALTERNATIVE METHODS BUT AFTER SEEKING THE ADVICE OF A CONSTRUCTION LITIGATOR WE DECIDED THAT THE COST TO GO AFTER THEM FOR THESE CHANGES WOULD BE QUITE HIGH AND THE CHANCES OF GETTING A POSITIVE RESULTS WERE NOT THAT GREAT. SO WE BASICALLY DID A VALUE ENGINEERING TYPE OF DECISION AMONGST THE THAT'S A RECOMMENDATION THAT WE MADE TO THE CITY COMMISSION WHEN WE TERMINATED THE AGREEMENT. AS YOU'LL RECALL THERE WERE A NUMBER OF ITEMS THAT WERE IN THAT TERMINATION AGREEMENT WHERE WE AGREED REGARDING MANY OF THE CHANGE ORDERS. IN RESPONSE TO THE FACT THAT THEY OWED US MONEY TO DO SO IT WAS BASICALLY A WASH.

OKAY. HI. I UNDERSTAND. AS WE GET FURTHER INTO THIS ARE YOU GOING TO BRING FORTH DRAWINGS TO US TO SEE WHAT IT'S REALLY GOING TO LOOK LIKE. I MEAN I DID LOOK AT WHERE WE'RE AT A STAGE OF ISSUING PERMITS WITHIN THE NEXT DAY OR TWO FOR THE CLUBHOUSE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE US TO SHARE WITH AN UPDATE I'M SURE WE CAN HOPEFULLY GET SOME NICE. WELL YEAH HOPEFULLY NICE 3D RENDERINGS MAYBE THREE. THE REASON I'M ASKING THAT IS I'M HAPPY TO SEE THAT WE'RE AT BUDGET AND I BELIEVE WE NEED TO STAY WITHIN BUDGET AND I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED THE BASIC NET. THAT'S A BAD WORD. I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED THE BONES OF A GOOD BUILDING AND IN STAYING WITHIN BUDGET AND KEEPING IT THE SIZE. I THINK THAT'S TREMENDOUS. BUT I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO SEE WHAT'S GOING TO MAKE US STAND OUT IN ANY OTHER CLUBHOUSE. I THINK THE RELIEFS ON THE BUILDING WILL NOT CHANGE THE EXTERIOR DESIGN OF THE BUILDING. IT'S NOT REALLY CHANGING AT ALL THROUGH THE VALUE ENGINEERING OR WE KNOW MAYBE LOWERING YOU KNOW MAKING THE BUILDINGS AND YOU KNOW THE WINDOWS ON THE BACK SMALLER. YES BUT IT'S NOT REALLY GOING TO CHANGE THE RELEASE OF THE BUILDING. BASICALLY GOING TO BE THE SAME THAT YOU'VE ALREADY SEEN IN THESE PICTURES. THIS REALLY IS KIND OF A RHETORICAL QUESTION BUT I'D LIKE TO SEE SOMETHING THAT'S GOING TO BE OUR WOW FACTOR IN OUR BUILDING SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SAY. THIS MAKES IT DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER CLUBHOUSE WITHOUT NAMING ANY NAMES BECAUSE IT DOES IT'S GONNA BE A LOT DIFFERENT. WE HAVE THE PICTURES. OK ALL RIGHT. THAT IS A KIND OF QUESTION. BUT YOU KNOW WE HAVE WE HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS AND I UNDERSTAND BUDGETS. I GET ALL THAT. BUT I WOULD JUST BE CONCERNED ABOUT THAT A LITTLE BIT. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU KNOW THAT THE PICTURES YOU ALREADY SEE AND YOU HAVE SEEN AREN'T CHANGING. OK SO IT'S GONNA LOOK THE SAME BUT LIKE I SAID YOU KNOW MAYBE THE WINDOWS ARE SMALLER THAN WE ORIGINALLY PLANNED.

YOU KNOW AS OPPOSED TO A 12 FOOT BUILDING WINDOW. MAYBE YOU'RE RIGHT. NO WINDOWS LOWERED THE CEILING HEIGHTS AND THE FUNCTION IN THE FUNCTION ROOM BUT THAT'S INTERNAL 6 0 FEET TALL AND IT WAS JUST YOU KNOW AND I UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE CHANGES WE HAD TO WRITE ARE TRYING TO DO WHATEVER WE CAN DO TO MAKE MONEY BUT WE DON'T WANT TO CHANGE THE CHARACTER OF THE EXTERNAL PART OF THE POOL. NO THAT'S NOT WHAT WE WANT INTERNAL. YOU HAVE PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO BE COMING THERE HOPEFULLY TO BE MARRIED. SURE. SO THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING SPECIAL THAT BRINGS THEM THERE.

I KNOW WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE A PHOTO OP WITH THEIR WEDDING PARTY AND THINGS LIKE THAT. THAT'S KIND OF WHERE I'M GOING. IT WAS KIND OF RHETORICAL BUT I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KIND OF KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING. THANK YOU. OK THANK YOU. AND I WILL JUST SAY I AGREE WITH THE VICE MAYOR. THIS IS A PLACE THAT WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT FOR YEARS. WELL WE WANT AN ATTRACTION. WHAT MAKES THEM COME HERE AND THEN NOT GO INTO A CITY FACILITY. THEY'RE GOING TO CALL ME WEST. THEY'RE GOING TO GO TO AN AMAZING PLACE BEAUTIFUL FUNCTIONS. AND THIS IS WHY THEY'RE COMING HERE VERSUS GOING ANYWHERE ELSE. SO IT DOES NEED TO HAVE THAT POP STYLE AND CHARACTER BECAUSE WHEN YOU DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME YOU NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT AGAIN. SO THANK YOU FOR WORKING PART OF WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND DEALING WITH. GREATLY APPRECIATED. AND LOOKING FOR THAT. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

[2. Sister Cities Discussion]

MOVING ON NOW TO SISTER CITIES DISCUSSION IN CAROLINA KUNDERA AND DARIO CHIEF MARKETING AND DEVELOPMENT OFFICER CONNECT TO GLOBAL INC. AND OUR ASSISTANT CITY MANAGER LAURA KOPLOVITZ. MORNING LADIES AND GLAD YOU ARE WITH US TODAY. I AM TOO.

THANK YOU. GOOD MORNING AND THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME HERE AGAIN. AND I DON'T KNOW WHO WANTS TO START BUT IF YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE TAKE IT FROM THERE. WELL ACTUALLY THE

[00:10:03]

LAST TIME WE WERE HERE AND THE CITY COMMISSION EXPRESSED INTEREST IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM. THAT'S WHY WE BROUGHT MR. NAVARRO BACK HERE TO TALK TO YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT THE PROGRAM ENTAILS HOW SOME OTHER CITIES DO IT. AND THEN AFTER THAT WE HAVE PREPARED SOME ESTIMATES FOR YOUR FATHER A DISCUSSION OF THE PROGRAM. SO THERE ARE DIFFERENT PROGRAMS THAT WE HAVE AT SISTER CITIES.

AND IT VARIES ON WHETHER YOU WANT TO START A SISTER CITY AS A FELLOW YOU KNOW JUST A FRIENDSHIP CITY WHICH WE ALWAYS RECOMMEND A FRIENDSHIP CITY IS GREAT. IT'S A STEPPING STONE IT'S LIKE DATING RIGHT. YOU FIGURE OUT IF YOU DO WELL TOGETHER OR NOT WITHOUT GOING INTO THE FULL BLOWN SISTER CITY COMPONENT OF IT. RIGHT. AND WITHIN THAT A LOT OF THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN WITHIN THE FRIENDSHIP CITIES ARE DEFINITELY THE EDUCATIONAL COMPONENT OF IT WHERE THE SCHOOLS GET MORE ENGAGED AND WHERE WE TRY TO ENGAGE PRINCIPALS AND TEACHERS AND WORKING WITH STUDENTS EVEN BRINGING THEM IN THE WEBINAR WITH ANOTHER CLASS OF ANOTHER CITY IN ANOTHER COUNTRY.

AND THAT REALLY HELPS A LOT ESPECIALLY NOW USED TO BE THAT WAS MORE COSTLY TO DO NOW WITH SKYPE AND AND ZOOM AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT THAT'S TURNING OUT TO BE REALLY A REAL GOOD CONNECTOR WITH ESPECIALLY ON THE EDUCATION COMPONENT OF IT. AND THEN THERE'S YOU KNOW THE FULL BLOWN SISTER CITY PROGRAM AND THAT ENTAILS MORE WORK OF COURSE AND ALL THIS FALLS UPON OF COURSE VOLUNTEERS. ALL RIGHT. AND AND SO THERE'S A DIFFERENT SETUP SOME CITIES FOR EXAMPLE HERE IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA. I OVERSEE THE ENTIRE STATE. ORLANDO DOESN'T EVEN HAVE HAS A SISTER CITY PROGRAM THAT RUNS STRICTLY AS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. SO THEY HAVE A PAID EMPLOYEE AND PAID EMPLOYEES RUNNING IN THE SISTER CITY PROGRAM. THAT IS A VERY UNIQUE CONCEPT. BUT THAT'S HOW THEY'VE RUN THEIRS IN. AND I THINK A LOT OF THAT HAS TO DO WITH THE CORPORATIONS THAT EXIST IN ORLANDO THAT ARE HELPING FUND ALL THAT. SO THAT IS A VERY RARE OCCURRENCE THAT THAT HAPPENS AND YOU KNOW IT'S A GREAT MODEL THOUGH WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING FOR FUNDING BUT THE NORM IS THAT THE MAYOR NORMALLY WANTS TO RUN THE SISTER CITIES AND IN THE KITCHEN THE COMMISSION. ALL RIGHT. AND SO WHAT THEY DO IS LIKE CORAL GABLES IS SET UP IN THE CITY OF MIAMI EVEN IN TAMPA AND ST. PETERSBURG GAINESVILLE. IT'S RUN BY THE GOVERNMENT AND THE VOLUNTEERS ARE APPOINTED BY THE CITY COMMISSIONERS. AND EACH ONE IS A LIAISON TO THE SISTER CITY PROGRAM TO BE IN AN EDUCATION THAT SOMEONE'S IN CHARGE OF EDUCATION OR SOMEONE'S IN CHARGE OF THE RESPECTIVE CITY OR COUNTRY THAT THEY'RE PARTNERING WITH. FOR EXAMPLE IN CORAL GABLES WE HAVE NINE SISTER CITIES THOSE NINE SISTER CITIES EACH HAVE A BOARD AND BOARD MEMBER THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR REPORTING ON THAT SISTER CITY EVERY MONTH. OK. AND KNOWING WHAT'S GOING ON AND WHAT EXCHANGES ARE COMING IN IF THERE'S DELEGATIONS COMING IN FROM THAT CITY INTO THE STATE OF FLORIDA OR INTO THE US HOW CAN WE GET THEM TO CORAL GABLES AND TO THE MIAMI AREA. OR IF WE'RE SHOWING SISTER CITIES WITH ANOTHER CITY HERE IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA HOW CAN WE COMBINE A JOINT DIFFERENT MEETING BETWEEN THE TWO CITIES. SO THAT'S WHAT WE'RE STARTING TO SEE MORE IN FLORIDA IS THAT YOU HAVE A LOT OF MULTIPLE CITIES WITH THE SAME SISTER CITIES FOR DIFFERENT REASONS. SOME IS HAS TO DO WITH EDUCATION OTHERS HAS TO DO WITH BUSINESS. RIGHT. AND AND SO WHAT I'VE TRIED TO DO IS TRY AND CONNECT THOSE CITIES SO THAT IF THEY'RE DOING A MISSION LET'S JUST SAY THAT SOMEBODY IS DOING A MISSION TO MEXICO CITY JUST FOR THE SAKE OF IT. AND WE HAVE THREE SISTER CITIES WITH MEXICO CITY IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA. I'VE NOW CONNECTED THEM AND SAID LISTEN IF YOU'RE GOING TO LAND DOES GO INTO MEXICO CITY THEN SARASOTA AND MIAMI SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS TRIP AND SEE HOW WE AS A STATE CAN GO TOGETHER AND BE MORE FORCEFUL AND REALLY DEVELOPING THAT RELATIONSHIP FOR THE STATE OF FLORIDA AS A WHOLE RATHER THAN JUST FOR ONE ENTITY. AND I THINK IN THE SMALLER MARKETS SUCH AS CORAL GABLES AND TAMARA I THINK POPULATIONS AROUND SIXTY FIVE THOUSAND WERE FIFTY ONE THOUSAND IN CORAL GABLES. WE REALLY LOOK FOR THAT BECAUSE THAT REALLY BOOSTS THE VALIDITY OF THE RELATIONSHIP AND IT GROWS MORE BUSINESSES BECAUSE HALF OF THE TIME IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA WE DON'T UNDERSTAND WE DON'T REALIZE WHO'S DOING BUSINESS WITH WHOM AND IT'S AND IT'S HAPPENING IN YOUR OWN NEIGHBORHOOD AND YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT IT UNTIL YOU'RE ON A ROAD TRIP WITH SOMEBODY WHO KNOWS THAT WELL HERE WE ARE. SO THOSE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS THAT I THINK ARE IMPORTANT BUT THE

[00:15:01]

FACT THAT SISTER CITIES DOES HELP INCREASE RELATIONSHIPS BOTH FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES. DEFINITELY WE'RE SEEING A VERY VERY STRONG DEAL IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT WHERE THAT'S BECOME A FOCUS OF IT. WE EVEN NOW HAVE THE DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE INTERESTED IN SISTER CITIES AND WE'VE PAID FOR THAT FOR 50 YEARS AND YOU'RE FINALLY LISTENING. SO WE MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. BUT IT IS IT IS A LONG JOURNEY TO DO IT AS COSTLY JOURNEY. I MEAN YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO HAVE SOME MONEY ASSIGNED TO IT IF NOTHING ELSE WE HAVE WITHIN USE MIAMI AGAIN THERE'S TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS ALLOCATED FOR SISTER CITIES AND A LINE ITEM IN CORAL GABLES. I KNOW THE COUNTY ALSO ASSIGNS A VERY NOMINAL FEE OK BUT IT DOES HELP US WHEN WE WANT TO WHEN WE WANT TO BRING IN SOMEONE AND OFFER A COCKTAIL RECEPTION THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO GO BEGGING FOR FIFTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS EVERY TIME TO SOMEBODY ELSE WHERE WE CAN HAVE THAT AT LEAST. THEREFORE IF WE WANTED TO DO THAT THERE'S SOME RESTRICTIONS ON IT. WE WE DID SET UP A FOUNDATION FOR OUR SISTER CITY PROGRAM AND THAT FOUNDATION ACTUALLY DOESN'T ALLOW FOR ALCOHOL BEVERAGES BUT ALLOWS FOR FOOD DOESN'T ALLOW FOR TRIPS.

OK. SO NOBODY CAN TAKE MONEY OUT OF THEIR TO DO TRIPS WITH IT. IT DOES ALLOW FOR EDUCATION PURPOSES THOUGH. IF WE WANT TO PROVIDE A SCHOLARSHIP TO A STUDENT OR BRING A STUDENT OVER UNDER THE STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM WE CAN USE MONEY FOR THAT. SO THAT'S PRETTY MUCH IT IN A NUTSHELL. I AM OPEN FOR ALL KINDS OF QUESTIONS BECAUSE I ASSUME YOU ALL HAVE QUESTIONS AND I HOPE TO HAVE THE ANSWERS FOR YOU. BUT AS I TOLD LAURA I HAVE BROUGHT EVERYTHING HERE THAT IS GREAT TO KIDS THAT IS FROM SISTER CITIES IN THAT WE CAN HELP YOU IN ANY WAY ESPECIALLY ON THE STATE LEVEL. I HAVE GONE TO THIRTY NINE CITIES ALREADY AND VISITED WITH EVERYBODY SO THAT WAS MY JOURNEY A LITTLE VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE I'VE COME TO THIS THE STATE OF FLORIDA WHICH IS KIND OF INTERESTING ACTUALLY. SO I WELCOME ANY QUESTIONS THANK YOU. LAURA DO YOU HAVE YOUR PRESENT. SO JUST TO RECAP SISTER CITIES INTERNATIONAL IS AN INTERNATIONAL MEMBERSHIP ORGANIZATION HEADQUARTERS IN THE SEA. AND THAT'S THE ORGANIZATION THAT OFFICIALLY REGISTERS RECOGNIZES AND COORDINATES THEIR CITY LINKAGES BETWEEN THE CITIES IN THE UNITED STATES AND ABROAD SO AS YOU KNOW TAMARACK HAS HAD SOME PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS IN IMPLEMENTING THE PROGRAM. SO WE DID A LITTLE BIT MORE RESEARCH ON THAT. IN 1980 FOR THE CITY OF TAMARACK ADOPTED A RESOLUTION THAT EXECUTED THE MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING WITH THE CITY OF KOREA TAIWAN AND ISRAEL IN NINETEEN NINETY THREE. THE CITY ADOPTED AN ORDINANCE ESTABLISHING A SEVEN MEMBER SISTER CITIES COMMITTEE. SO THE MEMBERS TO THIS COMMITTEE ARE APPOINTED BY THE CITY COMMISSION ANNUALLY AND THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF COMMITTEE ARE BASICALLY TO DUTY SEARCH AND REPORT ON THIS CITY'S ACTIVITIES TO THE CITY COMMISSION AND THE CITY COMMISSION MAY ASSIGN OTHER RELATED DUTIES TO THIS COMMITTEE BY A RESOLUTION IN TERMS OF THE MEMBERSHIP. THERE ARE NO VERY DEFINED THE REQUIREMENTS IN THE ORDINANCE BUT THE ORDINANCE ALSO PROVIDES THAT THE COMMITTEE MAY HAVE A CITY COMMISSION LIAISON AND AS WELL THE CITY MANAGER MAY APPOINT A STAFF MEMBER AS THE LEES AND TO SERVE IN AN ADVISORY CAPACITY. IN 2002 THE CITY OF TAMARACK HAS ESTABLISHED AN ACCORD WITH THE CITY OF FOX IN TURKEY. SO WE HOSTED A DELEGATION OF I BELIEVE TO TURKISH OFFICIALS AT THE CITY OF TAMARACK. AND AT THAT TIME WE COVERED THEIR TRAVEL AND LODGING EXPENSES AS LOSS HAS RECEPTIONS AND SOME OTHER THINGS THAT I MENTIONED. SO THE EXTENT PENSIVE THAT ATE UP AT EIGHTY FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS AT THAT TIME WE ALSO DONATED SURPLUS FIRE RESCUE EQUIP MEANT TO THIS VIDEO PLATFORM. SO THIS IS JUST AGAIN THAT CAP THE SISTER CITIES PROGRAM HAS A LOT OF FLEXIBILITY AND THE CITIES CAN CHOOSE THEIR ENGAGEMENT LEVEL AND DEPENDING WHAT THEY'RE INTERESTED IN AND WHAT MEETS THEIR NEEDS YOU KNOW WE CAN ENGAGE IN AS MANY OR AS LOW PROGRAM COMPONENTS AS WE'D LIKE. SO OBVIOUSLY YOU HEARD THE EDUCATIONAL COMPONENT AND THERE ARE SOME THINGS LIKE YOUNG ARTISTS AND AUTHORS SHOWCASE WHERE STUDENTS CAN PARTICIPATE IN SHOWCASING THEIR WORK. AND IF THEY WHEN THEY GET TO SHOW THEIR WORK

[00:20:03]

NATIONALLY THERE IS A YOUTH LEADERSHIP SUMMIT WHICH IS A WONDERFUL PROGRAM WHERE STUDENTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD GET TOGETHER AND THEY GET TO MEET THE DIPLOMATS THEY GET TO MEET CURRENT LEADERS AND THEY GET TO WORK WITH THEIR COUNTERPARTS ON PRESSING GLOBAL ISSUES AS A PROJECT. SO IT'S REALLY A GREAT PROGRAM. OUR PARTICIPATION IN SISTER CITIES PROGRAM IS NOT REQUIRED BUT IF WE WERE A MEMBER OUR STUDENTS WOULD PAY A LITTLE BIT LOWER A FEE TO PARTICIPATE AND THEN THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM OF WHICH INVOLVES THOSE TWO DONE FROM OUR SISTER CITY COMING TO STAY WITH A FAMILY IN THE CITY OF TAMARACK. AND AT THIS POINT THE WAY THE PROGRAM IS SET UP IT LOOKS LIKE IT WOULD BE A CITY'S RESPONSIBILITY TO FOR THAT STUDENT AND THE CITY'S RESPONSIBILITY TO FIND THE FAMILY FOR THEM TO STAND. AND WE WOULD ALSO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENGAGING THE STUDENT IN OUR SISTER CITIES ACTIVITIES A CULTURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM. AND AGAIN YOU KNOW DIFFERENT CITIES DEPLOY DIFFERENTLY BUT IT BASICALLY FOCUSES ON EXCHANGE RELATED TO FOOD ARTS CRAFTS THINGS OF THAT NATURE. AND THERE ARE SOME VERY EASY WAYS THAT WE COULD DO THAT IN TAMARACK FOR EXAMPLE WHERE WE SHOWCASE LOCAL ARTISTS ART. YOU KNOW WE COULD SHOWCASE ARTS FROM OUR SISTER CITY OR LOCAL REPRESENTATIVES OF THE CULTURE OF THAT SISTER CITY OR WE COULD HAVE A BOOTH AT ONE TAMARACK BECAUSE IT'S VERY WELL ADVERTISED AND VERY WELL ATTENDED EVENTS WHICH WOULD INCREASE THE REACH YOU KNOW OF CULTURAL EXPOSURE OF OUR SISTER CITIES CULTURE. AND AT THE SAME TIME YOU KNOW IMPROVE OUR FESTIVAL AS WELL. SO I ASK CAROLYN I MENTIONED ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IS THE BIG FOCUS AT THIS TIME WHICH COULD INVOLVE TRADE MISSIONS AND EXCHANGES WHERE OUR OFFICIALS AND BUSINESS REPRESENTATIVES WOULD MAKE CONNECTIONS WITH THE CITY OFFICIALS AND BUSINESS REPRESENTATIVES. AND FINALLY THERE IS A TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE COMPONENT WHICH IS BASICALLY LIKE BEST PRACTICE SHARING ON THE INTERNATIONAL LEVEL WHERE PROFESSIONALS COULD EXCHANGE THEIR KNOWLEDGE FOR EXAMPLE IN BEST WAYS TO STRUCTURE PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS OR HOW CAN WE BEST INVEST IN INFRASTRUCTURE MAINTENANCE THINGS LIKE THAT. SO IF WE WERE TO JOIN THE ORGANIZATION THE ORGANIZATION OFFERS SOME SERVICES TO ITS MEMBERS. THE ONE IS COMMUNICATION. THEY HELP PROMOTE SISTER CITIES PROGRAMS EXCHANGES EVENTS AND THEY OFFER CRISIS COMMUNICATION CONSULTING SERVICES IF THE NEED ARISES. THEY OFFER CONNECTION TO THE NETWORK TO PEERS FOR SHARING HOW THEY'RE DEPLOYING THE SISTER CITIES PROGRAM AND ENCOURAGE THAT COMMUNICATION AS WELL AS PUBLICITY THROUGH THE ANNUAL REPORT AND MEMBERSHIP DIRECT. GOVERNANCE AND POLICY SERVICES. THEY INCLUDE ADVICE ON GOVERNMENT. WE HAVE ACCESS TO DIFFERENT TEMPLATES BYLAWS SAMPLES AND AGAIN INFORMATION SHARING BETWEEN OTHER MEMBERS. AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST THERE IS A SISTER CITIES OF CITIES SEEKING CITIES PROGRAM WHICH IS ASSISTANCE FROM STAFF IN D.C. OFFICE WITH ESTABLISHING SYSTEMS A SISTER CITY RELATIONSHIP. BUT AGAIN THERE ARE A COUPLE WAYS TO STRUCTURE A PROGRAM AND WE PICK THESE TWO BECAUSE BOTH OF THOSE CITIES ARE ALLEN FORT LAUDERDALE HAVE A VERY WELL RUN VERY ACTIVE PROGRAMS. SO ONE IS KIND OF SIMILAR TO WHAT CATALINA WAS TALKING ABOUT ORLANDO DORAL HAS A STAFF RUN PROGRAM SO IT'S MORE CITY DRIVEN CITY ADMINISTRATION REPRESENTATIVES ARE THE ONES FOR ESTABLISHING THOSE RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN THE STAKEHOLDER COMMUNITIES WITH THEIR CITIES COMMUNITIES PROGRAMMING EVENTS ALL OF THAT AND THEY HAVE THE EVALUATION COMMITTEES AS THEIR CITIES EVALUATION COMMITTEE THAT CONSISTS OF STAFF MEMBERS AT FORT LAUDERDALE HAS AN INDEPENDENT FIVE OR ONE C THREE SISTER CITIES ORGANIZATION TO WHICH THEY DONATE NINETEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR. AND THEN THE ORGANIZATION IS FOR THE MOST PART TAKING CHARGE OF EVENTS STAKEHOLDER INVOLVEMENT AND ENGAGING WITH THE PROGRAM AND ENGAGING WITH THE SISTER CITIES. SO IN BOTH INSTANCES THERE IS A CLOSE COLLABORATION BETWEEN CITY STAFF AND ALL THE VARIOUS STAKEHOLDERS. IT'S JUST A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT APPROACH IN TERMS OF ONE IS MORE

[00:25:02]

CITY DRIVEN AND ONE IS MORE COMMUNITY DRIVEN THE BUDGET BUDGET DEPENDS AGAIN BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH FLEXIBILITY ON HOW THE PROGRAM CAN BE SET UP AND WHAT ELEMENTS WE CHOOSE. BUDGET DEPENDS ON WHAT ELEMENTS WE SELECT AND HOW MUCH ENGAGEMENT WE'D LIKE. IF WE'RE LOOKING FOR MINIMAL ENGAGEMENT WHERE WE JUST YOU KNOW MAYBE YOU SEND LETTERS TO OUR SISTER CITY TO CELEBRATE THEIR INCORPORATION OR YOU KNOW THEIR INDEPENDENCE DAY OR THINGS OF THAT NATURE AND PASS ON INFORMATION TO OUR SCHOOLS ABOUT WHAT OPPORTUNITIES TO PARTICIPATE IN THE LEADERSHIP SUMMIT OR OPPORTUNITIES TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CONTEST FOR YOUNG ARTISTS AND AUTHORS THAT COULD BE AS SMALL AS A COUPLE OF THOUSAND DOLLARS. BUT IF WE'RE LOOKING FOR A MORE ROBUST ENGAGEMENT THAT PROVIDES A LITTLE BIT MORE RETURN ON INVESTMENT THEN WE HAVE TO CONSIDER ADDITIONAL EXPENSES. SO AGAIN THESE ARE JUST ESTIMATES FOR A PROGRAM TO BE SUCCESSFUL IT NEEDS A DEDICATED CHAMPION. SO IT WE NEED WE WOULD NEED SOMEBODY TO OVERSEE THE PROGRAM AND SOME OF THE CITIES THAT WE SPOKE WITH THEY DIDN'T HAVE ACTIVE PROGRAMS FOR THAT REASON BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE A STAFF PERSON. SO THERE ARE A COUPLE OPTIONS FOR THAT. SO WE COULD HAVE A PART TIME EMPLOYEE HIRED BY THE CITY SETTING UP AND ADMINISTERING THE PROGRAM. WE ESTIMATED AT TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS AN HOUR 15 HOURS A WEEK AND THAT COULD ADD UP FROM NINETEEN THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND DEPENDING UPON HOW WE STRUCTURE IF WE PROVIDE GUIDES REIMBURSEMENTS FOR EXAMPLE OR A LAPTOP FOR THE PERSON TO DO THEIR WORK IN THE FIELD. ANOTHER OPTION WOULD BE AN EXTERNAL CONSULTANT WHICH COULD BE AROUND 60 TO 80 THOUSAND DOLLARS DEPENDING. AND THAT IS BASICALLY AN EXPERT IN COMMUNITY BUILDING THAT COULD HELP ESTABLISH THOSE CONNECTIONS FIND THE RIGHT PEOPLE FOR THE CITIES OR THE COMMITTEE ENGAGE THE RIGHT BUSINESS COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVES HERE AND IN THE SISTER CITY TO REALLY COORDINATE A PRODUCTIVE EXCHANGE. SO SO THOSE ARE JUST SOME CONSIDERATIONS. ANOTHER BUDGETARY CONSIDERATION IS TRAVEL AND THE CITIES THAT YOU SEE IN THE POWERPOINT ARE BY NO MEANS MEANT AS THE COMMENDATION. WE JUST TRIED TO RANDOMLY PICK SOMETHING THAT'S RELATIVELY CLOSE TO US AND SOMETHING THAT'S PRETTY FAR AWAY AND PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE GONE WITH AUSTRALIA. BUT IT WAS MAY THE CHERRIES WERE BLOOMING SO JAPAN WAS ON MY MIND. SO AGAIN. IF WE'RE LOOKING AT TRAVEL YOU KNOW TO THE CITY OF FORCE THE LU IN HAITI FOR A PERSON FOR A SEVEN DAY TRIP THAT COULD BE A RANGE FROM UNDER EIGHTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS OR TWENTY SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS OR JAPAN THAT COULD RANGE FROM UNDER TWENTY TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS TO UNDER FORTY SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS. SO AGAIN THAT WILL DEPEND BASED ON WHAT OUR SISTER CITY IS AND YOU KNOW DELEGATION HOSTING CAUSE LAST TIME WE COVER THE TRAVEL AND LODGING EXPENSES. SO WE PROVIDED THESE ESTIMATES HERE. IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE HAVE TO DO IT THE SAME WAY WE CAN PROBABLY STRUCTURE OUR AGREEMENTS WHERE YOU KNOW WE COVER OUR TRAVEL THEY COVER THEIRS. BUT WHAT WE ALSO DID WAS A RECEPTION AND AGAIN BASED ON THE RECEPTION THAT WE HAD LAST TIME YOU KNOW WITH A PICKUP FROM THE AIRPORT WINE AND CHEESE RECEPTION WE HAD A BREAKFAST BUFFET TO WHICH WE INVITED REPRESENTATIVES FROM OTHER CITIES THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MEMBERS. SO THE RECEPTION HOSTING COSTS COULD ADD UP AT THE BAR FOR THE TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS. AND AGAIN THESE ARE JUST CONSIDERATIONS. THESE ARE NOT MEANT TO BE AS THE FINAL CAUSE BUT THEY WILL DEPEND ON WHAT WE ELECT TO DO AND HOW WE STRUCTURE OUR PROGRAM. IF WE GO FOR IT AND ALSO AS CATALINA MENTIONED YOU KNOW FOR SOME CITIES THAT HAVE VERY ACTIVE OR AS THEY HAVE SEEN SUCCESS IF YOU KNOW IF THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY IS ENGAGED WITH SECURING SPONSORSHIPS AND DONATIONS AND SOMETIMES BUSINESSES PROVIDE SOME SERVICES IN KIND. SO IF WE'RE SUCCESSFUL BUT THAT THAT COULD REDUCE THE COST AS WELL SO WITH THAT WE'RE OPEN TO ANY QUESTIONS AND THEN WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOUR DIRECTION IN TERMS OF WHETHER YOU'RE INTERESTED IN JOINING YOU KNOW WHAT ELEMENTS YOU WOULD LIKE US TO EMBRACE IF YOU DO WANT TO JOIN. AND IF YOU HAVE ANY SISTER CITIES PREFERENCES IN

[00:30:04]

MIND AND IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS OF YOU KNOW IN TERMS OF PROGRAM STRUCTURE IF I CAN'T I'D LIKE TO MAKE A FEW COMMENTS JUST TO LAURA'S PRESENCE WHICH WAS GREAT. ONE THAT STEALS A LITTLE BIT OF THE WHAT WE AND THE SISTER CITY DELEGATIONS WE ALL PAY OUR OWN WAY NOTHING THE CITY DOESN'T PAY FOR ANYTHING FOR US. SO THOSE BOARD MEMBERS THAT WANT TO GO ON THESE DELEGATIONS WE PAY OUR OWN WAY. THE ONLY PERSON THAT GETS PAID IS MAYOR OF COURSE. AND SO SOME PEOPLE KNOW THAT GOING IN SO THE MONEY THAT WE MAY HAVE ALLOCATED IN SISTER CITIES IS DEFINITELY NOT FOR THOSE ON THE BOARD TO GO. AND THE ANSWER IS NO PROBLEM. AND THE OTHER THING I DO WANT TO SAY IS ON AN OUTSIDE CONSULTANT YOU REALLY NEED IT. IT'S NOT SOMETHING I WOULD RECOMMEND BECAUSE YOU HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE THAT LIVE WITHIN YOUR COMMUNITY THAT ARE KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE COUNTRIES WHERE THEY'RE FROM. AND THAT MAY BE A GOOD TIME FOR YOU TO BEGIN WITH AND THEY CAN OPEN THE DOORS. BUT DEFINITELY SISTER CITIES CAN OPEN THE DOORS FOR YOU FOR FREE. I MEAN YOU GUYS CAN CALL ME AND I PICK I CALL GOVERNMENTS ALL DAY LONG. I MEAN IT'S I SHOULD GET PAID FOR WHAT I DO BUT I DON'T KNOW. AND THE OTHER THING IS YOU HAVE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY IF YOU DO CONTINUE WITH THIS WITH OUTSIDE TURKEY BECAUSE THE NEW CONSUL GENERAL OF TURKEY WHO'S BASED IN MIAMI BY JUST FOR THIS FOR THE SOUTH FLORIDA REGION FOR THE TRI COUNTY REGION. HE IS GUNG HO AND HE'S GOT A STAFF THAT IS TOTALLY GUNG HO ON BUSINESS AND EXCHANGE AND EVERYTHING. SO AND CULTURAL EDUCATION FOR THEM MIGHT BE A GOOD START FOR YOU THERE WITH THEM IF YOU IF YOU CONTINUE TO GO WITH THAT AND THE TWO CITIES REALLY TWO COUNTRIES LOOKING FOR SISTER CITY MATCHUPS RIGHT NOW ARE MEXICO AND GERMANY OTHER THAN CHINA IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR PEOPLE FOR NEW CITIES BUT GERMANY AND MEXICO WE'VE GOTTEN A HUGE REQUEST ON THAT LATELY. AND ONE THING THAT I DID MENTIONED BUT IT IS IN THIS PACKAGE HERE AND IS THAT WHEN WE DO BRING STUDENTS OVER WE DO HELP WITH THE VISAS WE WORK WITH THE STATE DEPARTMENT ON GETTING THE STUDENTS OVER HERE THAT NEED VISAS AND IN HELPING THAT THAT PROGRAM. OK. THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. FISHMAN. I CAN SEE A LOT OF POTENTIAL IN THIS. WHEN EDUCATION WAS BROUGHT UP I WAS THINKING OF MILLENNIUM AND THEIR CHINESE PROGRAM. IT WOULD BE FASCINATING FOR THEM TO BE ABLE TO SPEAK TO A CITY A SCHOOL ROOM IN CHINA AND UTILIZE THEIR SKILLS I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WE PUT THE SISTER CITIES COMMITTEE IN ORDINANCE IN 93. DID WE EVER ACTUALLY POPULATE THAT COMMITTEE. DO WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. DID THE COMMISSION CHANGE AND IT NEVER HAPPENED. WE'RE NOT HUNDRED PERCENT SURE WHAT WE KNOW THAT THEN IN 2002 THAT 17 YEARS AGO YOU KNOW AND WE WENT BACK TO RE-ESTABLISH OUR SISTER COMMITTEE WE SISTER CITIES PROGRAM WE DID NOT HAVE A COMMITTEE AT THAT TIME. SO AT LEAST FOR THE LAST 17 YEARS WE HAVE NOT HAD AN ACTIVE APPOINTED COMMITTEE FOR THE PROGRAM. THANK YOU. I KNOW COMMISSIONER GALEN WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK BUT HE NEEDS TO STEP OUT FOR A MOMENT AND I SEE NOTHING FROM MY COLLEAGUES. WE ARE NOT FORCING YOU TO SPEAK ABOUT IT. HE IS ON HIS WAY BACK.

HE'S RAISING QUESTIONS. NOT AT THIS TIME. SO I WAS NOT AWARE WHEN I BROUGHT THIS UP TO THE CITY MANAGER THAT WE HAD A PROGRAM IN PLACE BEFORE. SO WHAT IS THE STATUS OF THE PROGRAM. IT'S NOT ACTIVE. YOU JUST JUST TO BE JUST TO CLARIFY WE DON'T WE DON'T HAVE A PROGRAM. OK. AND TO BE MORE CLEAR IN 2002 WHEN WE VENTURED INTO THIS ARENA WE DIDN'T HAVE A PROGRAM. THE COMMISSION REALLY NEVER SANCTIONED THE CREATION OF A SISTER CITIES PROGRAM THROUGH THE WHEN I DESCRIBE WHAT HAPPENED. I WOULD SUGGEST TO YOU THE COMMISSION THAT ONE ONE COMMISSIONER AT THAT POINT OVERSTEPPED HIS BOUNDS AND MADE SOME COMMITMENTS ON BEHALF OF THE CITY THAT THE CITY HAD TO HONOR. AND AFTER ONE EXCHANGE THE PROGRAM WENT AWAY AT THE

[00:35:03]

COMMISSION'S DIRECTION. AT THAT POINT THE COMMISSION WAS NOT INTERESTED IN PURSUING IT BEYOND THAT. SO IT DIDN'T HAPPEN. IT LITERALLY JUST DISAPPEARED. WELL I DON'T SEE ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT ESTABLISHING A PROGRAM AND ADOPTING A PROGRAM AND ENGAGING OUR LOCAL SCHOOLS FAVELA OR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL OR MIDDLE SCHOOL GIVES A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO ESTABLISH BUSINESS RELATIONS. WE HAVE SOME COMPANIES HERE INCLUDING YOU KNOW FORMER CITY FURNITURE THAT WE CAN GO TO AND TRY TO SECURE SPONSORSHIPS TO MINIMIZE THE COST TO THE CITY OF TAMARACK BUT I'M IN FAVOR OF ADOPTING THIS PROGRAM. I THINK IT WOULD BE BENEFICIAL TO OUR CITY TO OUR RESIDENTS. I ACTUALLY SPOKE TO A RESIDENT ABOUT IT WHO'S FROM HONDURAS. HIS SON WAS PART OF THE TAMARACK SWIM TEAM AND GOT A SCHOLARSHIP TO THE UNIVERSITY PENNSYLVANIA. SO HE WAS EXCITED ABOUT IT. AND I THINK IT'S DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT WE SHOULD PURSUE CONSIDER CONTINUE TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS WITH OTHER CITIES THAT ARE DOING IT SUCCESSFULLY AND THEN MODEL A PROGRAM AFTER SOME OF THOSE SUCCESSFUL CITIES AND USE THE RESOURCES OF SISTER CITIES INTERNATIONAL TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DEVELOP THE BEST MODEL BASED ON HEARING AT LEAST TWO OF MY COLLEAGUES WHO ARE INTERESTED IN GOING FURTHER. I HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING FROM MY COLLEAGUES OF NOT GOING FURTHER. THIS IS A DISCUSSION THAT WE NEED TO HAVE. YOU'VE ASKED FOR DIRECTV FROM US I THINK EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION IS ALWAYS VERY IMPORTANT. FORGIVE ME NOT HAVING ONE OF MY BETTER DAYS. I THINK THE EDUCATIONAL COMPONENT IS REALLY GOOD. MY CONCERNS REST ON FINANCES AND STRAIN ON CITY RESOURCES. OUR STAFF IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I DON'T KNOW THOUGH WE HAVE THE FULL TIME DEDICATION. I'M SURE WE WOULD HAVE THE FULL TIME DEDICATION BECAUSE OUR STAFF IS AMAZING AND WOULD BE DEDICATED BUT I DON'T KNOW IF AT THIS TIME WITH EVERYTHING WE'VE GOT GOING ON WE HAVE THE FULL TIME DEDICATION. MY DESIRE IS IF WE ARE TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS I WOULD REALLY WANT TO SEE OUR BUSINESS COMMUNITY STEP UP AND BE A PART OF THIS AND ASSIST US IN THIS IN ORDER TO MAKE IT SUCCESSFUL VERSUS HAVING IT BE A CITY RUN TYPE ORGANIZATION. WE WOULD HAVE A LIAISON OF COURSE BUT NOT HAVE THE ONUS ON IT COMPLETELY ON OUR CITY. AND AGAIN THIS MY FEELINGS ON IT. I THINK EDUCATION AND CULTURAL BITS OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DEPEND ON WHAT WHERE WE ARE AND WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE BEST POLICIES FOR BOTH CITIES IS ALWAYS VERY IMPORTANT. I ALWAYS THINK THAT AN ESTIMATED BUDGET. I LOOK AT OUR BUDGET AND I APPRECIATE IT. BUT I THINK IT'S WE LOWER THAN THE REALITY OF LIFE IN ALSO DO SEE A GRAND BALLROOM IN THE COLONY WEST LOCATION FOR AN EXTRAVAGANT RECEPTION ANYWAY. I JOKE BUT I DON'T BECAUSE AGAIN WE DO THINGS DO IT RIGHT. BUT YOU NEED US TO GIVE YOU DIRECTION IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS GO FORWARD INSTEAD OF IT NOT GOING TO TURN TO MY TWO COLLEAGUES WHO HAVE NOT SPOKEN AND ASK YOU ARE YOU IN FAVOR OR NOT IN FAVOR OF MOVING FORWARD WITH SOME TYPE OF PROCESS. YES I'M DEFINITELY IN FAVOR OF IT I THINK WE HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE AND SEE HOW WE PUT THE PLAN IN PLACE. BUT YES I'M DEFINITELY IN FAVOR. SO AT LEAST NO QUESTION MR. BOLTON IS NODDING HIS HEAD THAT HE IS IN FAVOR. HE SEEMS TO BE HAVING A DAY WORSE THAN I AM. I HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER. YES. YES. THE NOD WAS AN AFFIRMATIVE FOR FAIRLY FOR THAT. I'M SURE IF I SAID IT WRONG I WOULD BEEN TOLD SO. MY QUESTION IS THIS. YOU SAID ABOUT DATING FIRST. INTRIGUING FRIENDSHIP CITY FRIENDSHIP CITIES. WHAT DOES A FRIENDSHIP. FRIENDSHIP CITIES WHERE YOU REACH OUT TO ANOTHER CITY THAT YOU'RE INTERESTED AND BASICALLY THERE'S NOT A FULL BLOWN SISTER CITY PROGRAM TO IT COULDN'T EVEN BE ANOTHER CITY THAT SOMEONE ALREADY HAS A SISTER CITY WITH AND YOU JUST DO THE EXCHANGE AND CULTURAL EDUCATION BUSINESS DOESN'T FALL SO MUCH INTO IT BUT IT DEVELOPS EVENTUALLY AND USUALLY PEOPLE REMAIN ON A FRIENDSHIP CITY TWO YEARS MAYBE THREE YEARS SOME IN THE FIRST YEAR KNOW THAT THEY CAN GET WHAT THEY'RE LOOKING FOR OUT OF IT NOT EVERYBODY'S LOOKING FOR BUSINESS. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE JUST LOOKING FOR THAT CULTURAL EXCHANGE. THE ARTS AND EDUCATION. THAT'S ALL THEY WANT BUT THERE'S A LARGE COMPONENT LOOKING FOR BUSINESS AND AND SO WITH THE FRIENDSHIP CITY I FEEL ALWAYS HELPS THAT YOU KNOW BECAUSE YOU GET TO SEE HOW EVERYBODY WORKS AND HOW COMMITTED THEY ARE TO REALLY MAKING THIS RELATIONSHIP

[00:40:05]

WORK. SO THAT'S WHY I WOULD CALL IT DATING. OKAY SO BUT THE FRIENDSHIP CITY TO ME IS IS A GOOD ROUTE TO GO. I MEAN AND I WOULD REALLY FOSTER IF YOU'RE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS FOX IN TURKEY. I KNOW THAT TURKEY'S NOT POLITICALLY IN THE GREAT REALM OF THINGS RIGHT NOW AND WHEN THINGS ARE IN THE GREAT POLITICAL REALM AS WHEN PEOPLE ARE BETTER ON HANDSHAKES TO EACH OTHER AND REALIZING THAT WE'RE ALL THE SAME IN OUR OWN COUNTRIES AND THE PEOPLE AT A BUS TOP SOMETIMES THAT ARE HELPING US OUT TOO MUCH. SO I THINK THAT IS YOU KNOW IN TIMES OF CRISIS I THINK THOSE ARE CITIES TO HAVE. SO IN TURKEY THAT'S A LOT. THEY'RE ONE OF THE LARGE TRADING PARTNERS WITH CARGO INTO LAUDERDALE AND INTO THE EVERGLADES AND PORT EVERGLADES OR MIAMI. SO LOOKING AT THAT APPRECIATE. I MEAN ONE OF THE THINGS AS MUCH AS CORAL GABLES HAS WE HAVE SOME SIMILARITIES WE DO HAVE SOME DIFFERENCES IN THE THE MAKEUP OF OUR CITY AND THE RESPECT THAT WE ARE SO MORE BEDROOM CITY THAN WE ARE A BUSINESS CITY AND CORAL GABLES IS VERY MUCH A BUSINESS A BUSINESS CITY AND WE ARE WORKING TOWARDS A HAPPY MEDIUM. WE ARE NOT SAYING WE'RE TRANSFERRING TO ONE VERSUS ANOTHER. WE'RE TRYING TO GROW RESPONSIBLY IN BOTH AREAS.

SO I THINK THE EDUCATION AND THE CULTURAL IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND I DO THINK IN ORDER TO DEVELOP I THINK SOME PEOPLE DO IT FAST. AND PART OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO DATE 30 DAYS. NEXT THING YOU KNOW THEY'RE ENGAGED AND MARRIED THREE WEEKS LATER SO YOU NEVER KNOW. BUT I THINK A WAY TO START THE PROGRAM OFF WISELY WHERE WE'RE NOT GOING TO. I WOULD HATE TO JUMP IN FULL STEAM AHEAD AND SAY I'M SORRY WE'RE DONE. YOU KNOW I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE FORWARD ON A SLOW BASIS THAT IF WE CRAWL AND WALK QUICKLY RIGHT AFTERWARDS GREAT. I'D LIKE TO START UP WITH A FRIENDSHIP CITY WITH THE EYE ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SISTER CITY PROGRAM WITHIN OUR REALM AND OUR BOUNDARIES OF WHAT WE CAN DO AND THEY TRULY DO WANT ARE. EVEN IF IT DOES PRIMARILY STARTS WITH EDUCATIONAL AND CULTURAL I DO REALLY WANT OUR BUSINESS COMMUNITY TO GET INVOLVED. I THINK IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT OUR BUSINESS COMMUNITY GET INVOLVED. I SEE THAT WE HAVE A MISSION IN GOWANUS. BUT COMMISSIONER BOLTON IS FLIPPED AND HE HAS NOT SPOKEN. MR. BOLTON THANK YOU. I DON'T MEAN TO LOOK NONCHALANT. I REALLY WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I. I BELIEVE THAT YOU'RE DOING AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL JOB AND YOU'VE COME HERE TWICE AND YOU'VE TAKEN IN THE INFORMATION AND IT IS WONDERFUL INFORMATION THAT THE PROGRAM IS GREAT. I JUST THINK THAT AS WE MOVE FORWARD CAUTIOUSLY. IT IS BECAUSE OF THE TEMPERATURE OF OUR CITY. SOMETIMES WE DON'T WANT OUR GOOD TO BE SPOKEN EVIL IN A PROGRAM LIKE THIS YOU COULD HAVE A NEGATIVE SPIN THAT YOU KNOW PEOPLE ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF IT AND USING IT FOR OTHER PURPOSES AND THAT'S THE STUFF. SO THAT IS WHY I'M VERY VERY CAUTIOUS ABOUT IT. BUT AS THE MAYOR SAID YOU KNOW THERE ARE COMPONENTS OF IT THAT ARE REALLY INTERESTING AND INTRIGUING. THE CULTURAL EXCHANGE THE EDUCATION AND THAT'S THE STUFF AND THOSE PARTS. I'M REALLY FOR.

THERE ARE OTHER PARTS THAT I'M CAUTIOUS ABOUT. AND YOU KNOW MAYBE BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE A LOT OF INFORMATION OR YOU KNOW REALLY DIVE IN INTO YOUR PROGRAM. BUT I'VE I'VE SEEN YOU KNOW CITIES FORT LAUDERDALE AND MIRAMAR. YOU KNOW TAKING ADVANTAGE OF YOU KNOW THIS PROGRAMMING OR PARTS THEREOF AND IN THOSE PARTS SOME I'M INTRIGUED ABOUT SO YOU KNOW AS THEY SAY IN THE CARIBBEAN SILENT RIVERS RUN DEEP. SO. SO YOU KNOW IT'S NOT THAT I'M AGAINST IT I LOVE IT BUT IT'S YOU KNOW I HAVE TO BE CAUTIOUS BECAUSE OF YOU KNOW PARTS OF IT THAT JUST DOESN'T MAKE ME FEEL COMFORTABLE. BUT I THINK CULTURAL EXCHANGE AND EDUCATION IS ALWAYS GREAT. YEAH IT IS. IT DOES SOMETIMES. UNFORTUNATELY WE FIND IT ACROSS THE BOARD. IT BECOMES SOMETIMES SELF-SERVING TO SOME PEOPLE AND WE HAVE TO YANK THEM BACK AGAIN BECAUSE WE DO GET COMPLAINTS AND WE HAMMER DOWN ON THOSE. THAT'S WHY WE HAVE STATE REPRESENTATIVES SO THAT WE WERE HERE WHERE THE BOOTS ON THE GROUND. BUT I THINK I

[00:45:06]

TOTALLY BELIEVE IN IT. I TO BE REALLY MY OWN PERSONAL TIME DOING THIS STUFF. BUT WE DO HAVE OUR CONFERENCE COMING UP IN HOUSTON TEXAS THIS YEAR JULY 17TH THROUGH THE 19TH. ANYONE WANTS TO GO. THEY CAN. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A MEMBER TO ATTEND BUT WE HAVE SOME GREAT PROGRAMS WE HAVE A WHOLE YOUTH PROGRAM ON CHINA. WE HAVE JAPAN ALSO COMING IN. WE HAVE A GERMAN PROGRAM GOING ON. WE HAVE A PROGRAM ON AFRICA WOMEN IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN AFRICA. SO ALL THOSE PROGRAMS WILL BE GOING ON AND RUMOR HAS IT. WE HAVE A VERY A PAST PRESIDENT COME IN TO SPEAK SO WE CAN'T SAY SO BUT THE HITMAN IS ONE OF THE GOOD ONES. OKAY. LET'S SAY THAT IT'S GONNA BE A GREAT PROGRAM THAT'S BEING HELD. SURE. THANK YOU. MICHELLE GO. YEAH.

CAROLINE HOW MANY HOW MANY BROAD CITIES HAVE SISTER CITY PROGRAM. HOW MANY CITIES IN BROWARD AND BROWARD. WE HAVE. I THINK IT'S THIRTY SEVEN THIRTY SIX. THEY'RE NOT ALL LIKE MY NIGHTSTAND AND THEN PALM BEACH IN MIAMI PALM BEACH. OKAY SO MIAMI I CAN TELL YOU WE HAVE 84 OF THOSE 84. TWENTY THREE ARE ACTIVE. THE REST ARE ALL CEREMONIAL THAT THE MAYOR WANTED OUR PREVIOUS MAYORS OR EXISTING MAYORS THAT HAVE IT AND NOW WE ARE REALLY PUSHING THAT THAT THEY EITHER GO BACK TO BEING A FRIENDSHIP CITY OR GET THEM OFF THE PAGE AS A SISTER CITY. THEY'RE NOT REALLY FOLLOWING THEM AND THAT'S BEEN A NICE CLEANUP THAT'S GOING ON RIGHT NOW. AND IT'S ACTUALLY FORCING THEM TO FOCUS IN AND SEE NEW AVENUES FOR THEM. SO WEST PALM BEACH I THINK WE ONLY HAVE SIX VERIFIED. WE'RE JUST THE COUNTY IN GENERAL TO MAKE THE COUNTY IN GENERAL. HOW MANY CITIES IN THE COUNTY HAVE PARTNERSHIPS WITH OTHER MIAMI-DADE COUNTY PALM BEACH COUNTY BEACH COUNTY. I DON'T KNOW THAT ON TOP OF MY HEAD I CAN GET YOU THAT NUMBER. OK. AND THEN I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW FOR THE COMMISSION THERE IS SOME CONCERN REGARDING COST BUT WE ALSO HAVE TO LOOK AT THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT WHEN WE INVEST IN A PROGRAM. WHAT IS THE POTENTIAL IN TERMS OF NEW BUSINESS ADDITIONAL BUSINESS AND CAN WE GET A FULL RETURN TO INVESTMENT IF OF COURSE WE GET OUR PARTNER CORPORATIONS TO COVER THE MAJORITY YOUR ALL OR HALF THE COSTS. WE HAVE TO LOOK AT IT FROM THAT PERSPECTIVE. ALSO I WOULD ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH DO YOUR OWN READING AND FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE THE PROGRAM WORK. I SPOKE TO OUR ECONOMIC DEPARTMENT MANAGER LARRY FUNDER WHITE WHO CAME FROM CHICAGO AND THEY'RE ON THEIR TWENTY NINTH CITY. SO I DON'T EXPECT US TO HAVE 29 CITIES BUT FOUR OR FIVE CITIES I DON'T THINK WOULD BE A BAD IDEA. AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE POPULATION OF TAMARACK WHICH I UNDERSTAND IS MAJORITY MINORITY FROM FROM STAFF'S RESEARCH 24 PERCENT OF THAT POPULATION IS HISPANIC 20 PERCENT OF THEIR POPULATION IS BLACK AND UNDER THAT BLACK IS YOU KNOW A LOT OF CARIBBEAN BLACKS. SO YOU KNOW MY PARENTS ARE FROM HAITI. I THINK MOM WHEN YOU WERE BORN IN JAMAICA SOMALIA IS JAMAICAN WE HAD STAFF WE HAVE STAFF MEMBERS WHO WERE BORN IN OTHER COUNTRIES WHERE WE'RE A GLOBAL CITY AND WE NEED TO PREPARE OUR STUDENTS TO FUNCTION IN THE GLOBAL WORLD. AND THAT'S WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM IMPORTANT. SO AGAIN I JUST WANT TO ASK AGAIN ABOUT THE. AND I ALSO SPOKE TO REPRESENT INCENTIVES FROM OTHER CITIES THAT HAVE PROGRAMS INCLUDING BOYNTON BEACH NORTH MIAMI FORT LAUDERDALE. SO IT WILL WORK IF WE WANT IT TO WORK AND IT WON'T WORK IF WE DON'T WANT IT TO WORK. AND SO WE JUST HAVE TO COMMIT TO MAKING IT WORK. SO JUST ANOTHER QUESTION ABOUT TURKEY. YOU WERE SAYING THEY WERE VERY INTERESTED. I'M I'M ACTUALLY. SO YEAH. TELL ME ABOUT TURKEY. TURKEY'S HEAD RIGHT NOW INTO SOUTH FLORIDA. THEY'VE HAD THREE DELEGATIONS IN THE PAST SIX MONTHS AND DELEGATIONS WERE ONE OF THEM WAS ON TECH AND INNOVATION. SO WAS A TOP TECH STUDENTS OUT OF THEIR UNIVERSITY SYSTEM CAME IN EXCHANGE WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI AND THEN WE TOOK THEM ALSO UP TO YOU. AND WE DID. IF YOU WITH THEM AS WELL. AND ON THE BUSINESS.

AND THEN THE OTHER DELEGATION THAT CAME IN WAS ON HEALTH CARE AND ALSO TECH AND INNOVATION. BUT IT WAS MORE BUSINESSES THAT CAME IN ON IT. BUT I THINK IT WAS. I DON'T REMEMBER. I DON'T REMEMBER WHAT THE THIRD ONE WAS BECAUSE I WAS OUT OF THE COUNTRY AT THE TIME BUT I THINK THOSE ARE THAT'S A GREAT START FOR IF YOU'RE GOING TO PURSUE THIS BECAUSE YOU'RE REALLY HAVE THAT RELATIONSHIP IS JUST DEALING WITH A CONSUL GENERAL. HE'S A YOUNG GUY AND VERY IN TUNE TO WHAT'S GOING ON AND REALLY WANTS WANTS THAT RELATIONSHIP GOING BACK AND FORTH TO TURKEY. WHAT'S HIS NAME. OH.

[00:50:04]

I SENT YOU THE NAME YOU KNOW FROM YOUR ALPHABET. THAT'S WHAT IT IS. I'VE JUST READ NAMES. YES. YOU KNOW WHAT I WAS AT THE SWEARING IN CEREMONY FOR NEWLY ELECTED OFFICIALS IN NORTH MIAMI AND I MET THE MINISTER OF TOURISM THERE AND I TOLD HIM THAT WE WERE CONSIDERING THIS PROGRAM. AND WHEN I TOLD THEM MY LAST NAME HE SAID OH PEOPLE WITH THIS LAST NAME ARE FROM THIS PART OF HAITI SHOULD CONSIDER DOING IT FOR THIS PART OF HAITI AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE SO I THINK IF WE PROMOTE SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO OUR DIVERSE POPULATION WE DEFINITELY WOULD NOT NEED TO HIRE A STAFF TO WORK ON THIS PROGRAM. WE CAN MAKE IT VOLUNTEER BASE FORM A COMMITTEE ON TOP OF THAT. YOU KNOW WE ARE ALREADY APPROVED HIRING STAFF LIAISONS SO WE CAN HAVE OUR STAFF. WE CAN ASSIGN THIS PROJECT TO OUR STAFF LIAISON AND NOT HAVE TO HIRE ADDITIONAL STAFF. WE CAN USE THE RESOURCES OF SISTER CITIES INTERNATIONAL AND LEAN ON THE OTHER CITIES THAT ALREADY HAVE A SUCCESSFUL PROGRAM IN PLACE. SO I JUST WANT TO REINFORCE THAT I FULLY SUPPORT AND ENDORSE THIS PROGRAM COMMISSIONER GONE.

THERE IS NO WAY NO HOW NO CONTEMPLATING ANYWHERE IN ANYBODY'S MIND THAT YOU DO NOT SUPPORT THIS PROGRAM. THANK YOU. SO I THINK SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE NEED TO DO IN ORDER TO MOVE THIS CONVERSATION ALONG OBVIOUSLY I'M GOING TO START IT BACK AND YOU KNOW I LIKE TO DO THINGS SEPARATELY SO FORGIVE ME BUT I THINK IT WILL BE EASIEST. ARE WE MOVING FORWARD AT THIS TIME FULL BORE AHEAD WITH SISTER CITIES ARE WE DOING FRIENDSHIP. AND I'M GOING TO ASK ON THE LINE OK. KNOWING THAT IF WE DO FRIENDSHIP CITY FIRST THE GOAL IS TO ACTUALLY HAVE A FULL BLOWN SISTER CITY. BUT TO START SMALL MR. FISHMAN YOUR OPINION. I THINK SINCE THIS IS OUR FOURTH BITE AT THIS APPLE WE SHOULD START SLOW AND START AS A FRIENDSHIP CITY AND SEE HOW THAT DEVELOPS. WHEN WE'RE TAKING OUR HOUR WHEN WE'RE LOOKING AT BECOMING A FULL BLOWN SISTER CITY MICHIGAN WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME A FRIENDSHIPS CITY PART OF ME.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A FRIENDSHIP. SEE IF YOU GET LISTED IN THE DIRECTORY AS WELL IT'S JUST NOT YOU'RE STILL NOT A FULL BLOWN SISTER CITY YOU HAVEN'T SIGNED. IT'S MORE OF AN M.O. YOU AS A FRIENDSHIP CITY THEN WHAT IS THE INTERACTION BETWEEN TWO CITIES. IT'S THE SAME IT'S THE SAME. IT'S DEFINITELY THE SAME. IT'S LITERALLY JUST MAKING SURE THAT THAT THAT YOUR PROGRAMS ARE LINING UP WITH THE PROGRAMS THAT THEY HAVE AND VICE VERSA. AND SOMETIMES SISTER CITY OF FRIENDSHIP CITIES STAY IN TWO OR THREE YEARS. I'M ONLY A FEW MONTHS BEFORE THEY REALIZE THIS IS WHAT WE WANT TO DO AND WE'RE GOING TO GO FORWARD WITH IT. SOME OF IT IS ALSO TOO. PEOPLE HAVE USED THEIR FRIENDSHIP AS A STEPPING STONE TO RAISE THE MONEY THAT THEY NEED TO CONTINUE THE PROGRAM. AND IF I CAN INTERJECT HERE BEFORE FLIES OUT OF MY MIND AGAIN IS THAT A LOT OF THE CORPORATIONS WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING FOR MONEY IS GOING TO THE CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY SECTOR. OK. THAT'S WHERE THE MONEY IS. AND IF YOU SAY THAT IT'S GOING TO BE USED IN SISTER CITY WITH AN EDUCATIONAL COMPONENT FOR THE YOUTH PROGRAMS ESPECIALLY OF COUNTRIES THAT THEY'RE IN THAT'S WHERE YOU FIND OUT WHERE THEIR INTEREST IS TO GO AND THAT'S WHERE WE GOT OUR MONEY AND WE CONTINUE TO GET OUR MONEY FROM THIS. SO I'M IN FAVOR OF IT BUT I WOULD LIKE TO I WOULD LIKE TO RECONNECT WITH TURKEY BUT ALSO LEAN ON NAME THE COMPANY UNIFORMITY FROM VENEZUELA. YES YES. I WOULD WANT TO. I WOULD WANT TO PARTNER WITH YOU KNOW A FARMER YOU KNOW TALK TO THEM I ALREADY GOT THE CONTACT INFORMATION FROM MICHAEL AND TALK TO THEM ABOUT YOU KNOW THEIR WILLINGNESS TO SUPPORT I THINK WE EXPLAIN THE PROGRAM TO THEM IT WILL BE WILLING AND IF YOU GO TO ALMOST ANY FORTUNE 500 COMPANY THEY ALL HAVE A CORPORATE AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY PAGE WHERE THEY TALK ABOUT YOU KNOW WHAT THEY GIVE HOW THEY GIVE AND KNOW WE WE DON'T HAVE TO LEAN ON OUR OWN BUDGET TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL PROGRAM. IF WE APPROACH THE RIGHT CORPORATIONS WITH THE RIGHT MESSAGE THAT'S WHY I ASK YOU FOR THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY BE MORE THE VOICE. YES I'M IN FAVOR. THANK YOU VICE MAYOR FRIENDSHIP CITY I DEFINITELY DO NOT WANT TO SEE THIS PROGRAM FAIL IN ANY WAY. SO I THINK IF WE START WITH THE FRIENDSHIP CITY THERE'S NOT A TIMEFRAME. IF WE ARE DOING WELL AND CAN FAST FORWARD IT THEN WE CAN. SO I THINK IF WE CAN LAY THE GROUNDWORK AT THAT POINT BY

[00:55:02]

REACHING OUT TO SOME OF OUR BUSINESS COMMUNITY FOR FUNDING AND SEE HOW WE WORK IT WITH VOLUNTEERS OR STAFF OR WHATEVER. SO THAT WOULD BE MY IDEA. THANK YOU. THANK YOU MR. BOLTON SOME NOT REALLY BECAUSE TITLES ARE WHAT IT'S CALLED. I'LL I'LL JUST TELL YOU WHAT I'D LIKE TO SEE AND THEN YOU PUT IT INTO HOW IT WORKS. I'M NOT NECESSARILY INTERESTED IN GOING TO JAMAICA ON BEHALF OF TAMARACK. MATTER OF FACT I'M TIRED OF GOING TO JAMAICA. YOU KNOW MY MY WIFE LOVES TO GO THERE. I'M JUST TIRED.

YOU KNOW IT'S MY COUNTRY BANDS YOU KNOW SO I WOULDN'T WANT TO NECESSARILY GO SOMEWHERE. WHAT I LOVE IS TO WHAT I'D LOVE IS TO HAVE PEOPLE FROM THEIR PAST PRIME MINISTERS OR TOURISM LEADERS TO COME HERE TO TALK TO OUR CITY AND OUR CITY'S RESIDENTS. I THINK THERE'S A SENSE OF PRIDE WHEN YOU LIVE IN A CITY AND THE CITY EMBRACES WHERE YOU COME FROM. AND SO YOU KNOW WATCHING OTHER CITIES DO THAT AND HAVING YOU KNOW PEOPLE FROM OTHER COUNTRIES COME AND SPEAK TO THEIR RESIDENTS. I THINK THAT'S PHENOMENAL. SO I DON'T KNOW IF THE FRIENDSHIP CITY OF OR FRIENDSHIP PARTNERSHIP DOES THAT BUT IF IT DOESN'T DO THAT THEN I WOULDN'T WANT TO SUPPORT A FRIENDSHIP PROGRAM BECAUSE THAT IT DOESN'T ACCOMPLISH TO THAT END. SO I'M I'M I'M INTERESTED IN THAT. I'M INTERESTED IN HAVING YOU COME TO ONE TAMARACK YOU KNOW COMING TO THE COMMUNITY CENTER AND HAVING TALKS AND SETTING UP TABLES AND JUST EXCHANGING JUST HAVING CONVERSATION. SO I DON'T WANT TO BE HUNG UP ON THE SCHOOL SHRINK AT CITY LEISURE AND THE FRIENDSHIP CITY IS JUST A BASIC THING WHERE IT'S JUST SO CEREMONIAL I'M NOT REALLY INTERESTED IN THAT. SO NO ONE IS ON OUR GUY. I JUST WANT TO TELL YOU WHAT I WHAT I WANT AND IF THE FRIENDSHIP CITY DOES NOT ACCOMPLISH THAT I DON'T WANT TO DO IT. OKAY. SO LET ME JUST READ THE DESCRIPTION OF THE FRIENDSHIP CITY OK. MAYBE THAT WILL HELP EVERYBODY. A FRIENDSHIP CITY OR FRIENDSHIP CITY'S RELATIONSHIP IS OFTEN FORMED BY CITIES AS A STEPPING STONE TO A MORE FORMAL SISTER CITY AGREEMENT TYPICALLY FRESH FRIENDSHIP CITY AGREEMENTS ARE REFERRED TO AS SUCH IN THE FORMAL DOCUMENTS THAT ARE SIGNED.

SISTER CITIES INTERNATIONAL SHALL RECOGNIZE FRIENDSHIPS CITY RELATIONSHIPS BY MEMBERS IN ITS MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY AND WEB SITE. SO IT GETS THE SAME RELATIONSHIP IN THE MEMBERSHIP AND DIRECTORY AND EVERYTHING ELSE. SO. AND WHEN YOU GO ON THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS THE ONLY THING THAT THE FRIENDSHIP CITY PROBABLY DOESN'T DO IS THAT AS A SISTER CITY YOU HAVE LIKE FULL LOAN LISTING OF ALL THE MEMBERS AND EVERYTHING ELSE UNDERNEATH. AND FRIENDSHIP CITY DEFINITELY IN THE DIRECTORY SHOW THAT THE CITY OF TAMARACK IS A FRIENDSHIP CITY WITH YOU KNOW JAMAICA WHATEVER AND IT DESIGNATED AS A FRIENDSHIP CITY NOT AS A SISTER CITY BUT EVERYBODY KNOWS WHAT THAT IS. SO IT'S NOT ANYTHING IT'S JUST YOU HAVE TO HAVE THAT BUILD UP ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE NEW STARTING THIS OUT AGAIN IS TO BUILD IT UP ON A FRIENDSHIP CITY. JIM IS IS WHAT I CAN RECOMMEND. I THINK IT'S IT'S EASIER THAT WAY AND YOU GET A LOT MORE DONE SO. SO WHAT I DESCRIBED WHAT EXACTLY IT DOES. OK. YOU'LL HAVE THE ACCESS TO EVERYBODY THE SAME THING I MEAN. AND THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT FOR YOUR CITY. I MEAN IF YOU BRING THOSE PEOPLE OVER FROM A CITY THAT YOU HAVE AN AGREEMENT THEN IT'S JUST MAKING THAT ASK YOU CAN COME TO US SO YOU CAN NOT MAKE THE ASK DIRECTLY. OK. AND THEN YOU SAID OTHER CITIES HERE AND IN FLORIDA I'VE READ SOMEWHERE THAT ONE CITY HAD NINE CITIES. YEAH THAT'S CORAL GABLES HAS NINE. BUT YOU KNOW THE COUNTY HAS A TON OF THEM. CITY OF MIAMI HAS 20 SOMETHING MIAMI BEACH'S 19 OF THOSE 19 IN MIAMI BEACH I THINK I LOVE IN OUR ARE ARE ACTIVE BUT NOW WHAT MIAMI BEACH HAS DONE IS TURNED IT INTO WHAT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT EARLIER IS THAT THEY'VE TAKEN THAT OUT OF THE CITY OF MIAMI BEACH AND NOW RUNNING IT TOTALLY INDEPENDENTLY UNDER A DIFFERENT DEAL OK. SO I'D LIKE TO. WHEN WE WHEN WE MOVE ON. WELL IT SOUNDS LIKE WE'RE GOING TO MOVE ON WHEN WE MOVE ON. I'D LIKE TO SEE IF WE COULD HAVE TWELVE CITIES. AND

[01:00:07]

HERE'S WHY. THE MAYOR WILL LOVE SHE HOPES YOU MUST BE RIGHT. I MEAN I'M OUT. I'D LIKE EACH OF THE COMMISSIONERS TO CHOOSE TWO CITIES THAT WOULD WANT TO BE A FRIENDSHIP CITY WITH. I'M SURE COMMISSIONER GOVERNOR IS GOING TO CHOOSE SOMEWHERE IN HAITI AND VENEZUELA RIGHT. AND THEN SO IF EACH OF US WOULD WE'D BE ABLE TO CHOOSE TWO CITIES RIGHT. AND THEN THE MAYOR GETS TO CHOOSE FOR EACH. SHE LOVES ME. SHE DOUBLES IT CHOOSE FOR SHE'S SHE'S THE MAYOR AND SHE GETS. SO THEN WE HAVE A TOTAL OF TWELVE TWO FOUR SIX EIGHT VOTES FOR US. WELL THAT'S HARDLY RIGHT.

WELL. AND SO THAT GIVES EVERYBODY IS A STAKE IN THIS AND EVERYBODY FEELS COMFORTABLE. AND YOU KNOW YOU'RE SERVING YOUR COMMUNITY TO SEE KIND OF LIKE WHAT PEOPLE WOULD BE INTERESTED IN AND THAT'S GOOD STUFF. AND SO ON. YOU KNOW LEVANT LOVE US AGAIN. WE'LL GIVE YOU THE TURKEY AND THEN WHERE ARE YOU FROM OR NEAR LITHUANIA. SO MAKE HER HAPPY. YOU GET A CITY YOU GET. OKAY RIGHT. SO GET IT.

COMMISSIONER BOLTON IS NOT GOING TO LIKE WHAT I WAS GOING TO ASK BUT SOMETIMES THAT'S NOT SURPRISING. IN ORDER TO AVOID TAKING IN SOME OF YOUR COMMENTS YOU MADE EARLIER THE CONCERNS THAT I THINK YOU ARE EXPRESSING ABOUT PEOPLE THINKING THAT WE WERE GONNA UTILIZE THIS FOR PERSONAL PRIVILEGE. MY COMMENT TO MY COMMISSIONER WAS GOING TO BE MAYBE WE SHOULD FIND A CITY THAT HAS NOT YET BEEN UTILIZED THAT IS NOT ATTACHED TO ANYONE'S BACKGROUNDS. I MEAN WE ALL HAVE TIES TO SOMEWHERE. BUT IN ORDER TO START OFF THE FIRST CITY THAT WE DO NOT BEING SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE HAVING ANYBODY ACCUSE OF USING THIS POTENTIAL PROGRAM FOR THEIR PERSONAL GOOD SO THAT IS MY INITIAL THOUGHT TAKING ON SOME OF THE COMMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE HERE TODAY. I ALREADY KNOW THAT COMMISSIONER GALAN IS SHAKING HIS HEAD NOT HAPPENING BECAUSE HE DESPERATELY WANTS TO GO TO HAITI. WELL. SO. SO I KNOW IT'S NOT A GOOD TIME TO GO TO VENEZUELA GIVEN THE INSTABILITY AND WE'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

WE'RE WE'RE E-MAILING BUT. BUT I DO THINK AS THINGS CHANGE WE CAN PARTNER WITH THE FARMER AND HELP US FARMERS SIMULATIONS AND AS A HUGE VENEZUELAN POPULATION IN THE CITY OF WESTERN AND THEY HAVE THEIR TIES ARE MORE SPENT YEAH IN NORTHERN SPAIN. SO AND ACTUALLY MY COUSIN WHO'S AN ELECTED OFFICIAL IN HAITI IS A SENATOR IN HAITI.

AND SO IT WOULD BE EASY TO ESTABLISH RELATIONS THERE. I GUESS I JUST MET WITH THE MINISTER OF TOURISM A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. I WANT TO CALL THE GENERAL COUNSEL OF TURKEY IN A WEEK OR SO FROM NOW. BUT I THINK I THINK THE BEST WAY TO ESTABLISH A PROGRAM IS WHERE YOU ALREADY HAVE SOME RELATIONSHIPS BUT YOU KNOW THAT'S WE CAN DISCUSS LATER ON. I THINK WE KIND OF NEED TO FINISH THE DISCUSSION A LITTLE BIT. NOW FOR SOME DIRECTIVE BUT FOR FORGIVE ME AND I KNOW YOU WERE A GUNG HO ON THIS AND I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH YOU BEING GUNG HO ON THIS BUT THIS IS ONE OF THOSE ITEMS THAT THE WAY IT'S GONNA BE ORGANIZED IT CANNOT HAVE ANYONE ON THE COMMISSION IN MY OPINION RUNNING OUT IN FRONT WHEN THE CITY IS NOT WITH IT. THIS IS NOT AS MUCH AS I KNOW THIS IS YOUR BABY I RESPECT THAT BUT I'M GOING TO ASK THAT UNTIL WE HAVE LINE THAT ORGANIZE THAT THIS IS NOT SOMETHING YOU'RE GOING OUT AND INTRODUCING OR DOING CERTAIN THINGS ON BEHALF OF US OR THE CITY OR EVEN YOURSELF. UNTIL WE HAVE SOMETHING IN PLACE LET US GET ORGANIZED. OK I'LL KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. BUT WILL YOU SAY YOU CAN EVEN CALL THE PERSON FROM IRAQ. YOU'RE GOING TO CALL. BUT WHAT I CALL CAROLINE. I MEAN I UNDERSTAND AND YOU'VE GOT IT IN THE DOOR AND NOW WE'RE WORKING TO GET IT TOGETHER AS A COMMISSIONED BASE. RIGHT. THERE MAY BE SOME PEOPLE ON THE COMMISSION WHO WOULD RATHER WE KNOW EXACTLY WHAT CITIES WERE GOING WITH FIRST VERSUS SOMEBODY HANDING OUT ON BEHALF OF THE CITY A CITY THAT IT MAY NOT BE ACCEPTABLE TO THE COMMISSION. YES I MEAN MY ROLE IS JUST TO EXPLORE AND HAVE CONVERSATIONS. I THINK THAT I THINK BUT MAYBE AS A COMMISSION WE SHOULD ACTUALLY ASK THE COMMISSION IF THERE'S CONSENSUS FOR THAT TO BE YOUR ROLE MODEL. SO IF YOU'RE DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO DO. I'M JUST WANTING CONVERSATIONS. CAN WE GET TO IT. CAN WE GET THE PROGRAM ORGANIZED FIRST. I PLAN ON MAKING A MOTION AT THE COMMISSION MEETING ON WEDNESDAY BECAUSE WE CAN'T WE CAN'T GIVE WE ARE ACTUALLY AT A WORKSHOP.

[01:05:05]

RIGHT. WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO GET CONSENSUS RIGHT NOW SO WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THIS SO MUCH ON WEDNESDAY. SO WE HAVE A ON DEVELOPING A FRIENDSHIP PROGRAM. CORRECT.

BUT THEY ALSO ASKED US FOR SOME OTHER THINGS LIKE I'M TRYING TO GET THAT RIGHT.

SO THE OTHER THINGS WAS. WHICH CITY TO GO THROUGH FIRST. AS MUCH AS IT WOULD BE NOVEL TO GO STRAIGHT STRAIGHT TO TWELVE WE REALLY NEED TO CUT OUR TEETH LET'S AT LEAST JUST PICK ONE AND ESTABLISH IT. AND IF WE ARE FRIENDSHIP CITY WELL ENOUGH WITH ONE WE CAN IN FRIENDSHIP SAY WELL ENOUGH WITH TWO AND THEN WE CAN GET OUR LITTLE PATH ON BECOMING A SISTER CITY. I THINK WE SHOULD START WITH FIVE WHERE EVERYONE PICKS THEIR ONE CITY FOR ORGANIZATIONAL PURPOSES. WHAT IS THE COMPLICATION OR IS THERE NO COMPLICATION FOR DOING FIVE AT A TIME. I MEAN I SEE YOUR HEAD JUST POP OUT LIKE WHAT. FORGIVE ME. YOU GAVE ME A LOOK THAT I WOULD GIVE MYSELF. NO I WOULDN'T. I KNOW THAT EVERYBODY GETS AMBITIOUS HERE BUT YOU REALLY NEED TO VOTE. I WOULD IF I WERE YOU GUYS I WOULD YOU KNOW TOSSED AND I HAVE THE FIVE CITIES YOU'RE INTERESTED IN RIGHT. AND PICK OUT THE FIRST ONE. ALL RIGHT. BUT IT HAS TO BE A CITY THAT REALLY CONNECTS WITH YOU GUYS AND AND FOSTER TURKEY BECAUSE ONCE YOU HAVE A SISTER CITY UNDER YOUR BELT IT BECOMES EASIER BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO LEARN FROM TURKEY AS WELL. THEY DEAL WITH THEIR PROGRAMS AND EVERYTHING ELSE. WHICH WILL GIVE YOU GUIDANCE DURING THIS FRIENDSHIP CITY. AND WE'RE HERE TO HELP. I MEAN I'M AVAILABLE IF YOU'D NEED IT. AND DEFINITELY THE TEAM UP IN D.C. BUT I THINK AN AMBITION OF TWELVE IS WAY TOO MUCH. AND I WOULD REALLY AT THIS POINT. SORRY MARLA. BUT I REALLY DO. I DO THINK THAT YOU GUYS CAN HANDLE AT LEAST TWO OR THREE BUT ONE AT A TIME YOU KNOW AND I THINK AMONGST YOURSELVES IS TOSSED OUT THE NAMES OF THE CITIES OF THE COUNTRIES THAT YOU'D LIKE TO CONSIDER WITH FRIENDSHIP CITIES AND THEN DO THAT LITMUS TEST YOU KNOW WHERE DOES IT FALL AND WITH WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE HOW WE'RE GROWING WITH OUR EDUCATION WITH OUR CULTURAL AND WITH OUR BUSINESS. AND YOU KNOW THE ONE THAT GETS THE MOST TICKS ON IT GETS IT. YOU KNOW SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

BECAUSE I'M SPEAKING FOR MYSELF ON THIS ONE. AND PLEASE DON'T THIS FORGIVE ME BUT I DON'T WANT TO WORKSHOP THIS AGAIN NEXT MONTH OR NEXT WEEK. I KIND OF WANT US TO KIND OF GET THROUGH IT NOW SO WE CAN MOVE ON. SO COLLEAGUES I'M GOING TO START WITH MARLON OH I THOUGHT I'D JUST NEVER FLIP BACK OVER SO I'M GONNA I'M GONNA I'M GONNA FLIP WHAT YOU SAID. LIKE FOR ME IS NOT IT'S NOT A CITY THAT IS CLOSE TO MY HEART. IT IS A CITY THAT IS CLOSE TO THE RESIDENTS HEART. SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT TAMARACK GENERAL WHAT CITIES DO YOU THINK THE RESIDENTS IDENTIFY WITH MOST. YOU KNOW SO WE WE DON'T HAVE TO HAVE 12. BY ALL MEANS. AND YOU KNOW JUST TO BE CLEAR PERHAPS I WOULD NEVER CHOOSE JAMAICA YOU KNOW. SO IT'S IT'S IT'S IT'S KIND OF LIKE IT I'M THINKING WHAT WHAT CITY WOULD OUR RESIDENTS APPRECIATE. I DON'T WANT TO I DON'T WANT TO CHOOSE RUSSIA WHEN WE'RE NOT THE CITY OF HAVING TO SOMETHING. WE'RE NOT A SUNNY ISLES. WE'RE TAMARACK AND I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST RUSSIA. I BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE AMAZING PEOPLE. YOU'RE GOOD WITH COMPUTERS. YOU KNOW BUT IT'S SO YOU KNOW IT'S LIKE I JUST WANT TO CHOOSE A COUNTRY THAT IS CLOSE TO OUR HEARTS. BUT IT'S NOT CLOSE TO OUR RESIDENTS. SO IT'S LIKE I DON'T KNOW HOW WE MOVE ON BUT I THINK THIS IS A POSITIVE THING. AND AND I HEARD JUST A LITTLE BIT OF DEBATING PASSIONATE PASSIONATE DEBATING AND I THINK YOU KNOW WE SHOULD QUIT WHILE WE'RE AHEAD AND JUST GET THE CONSENSUS AND MOVE ON. WELL WE HAVE WE HAVE CONSENSUS TO MOVE ON. THE PROBLEM IS WE DON'T HAVE CONSENSUS TO MOVE ON TO WHICH CITY. THEN THE QUESTION BECOMES IS IT ONE TO HAVE IT STARTED AND HAVE THIS COMMITTEE OF PEOPLE THAT WE WANT TO HELP PROVIDE US WITH IDEAS I WAS TRYING TO GIVE IT TO OUR COMMISSION TO DEAL WITH FIRST AND IS IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE WANT NEW. I MEAN THAT'S WHY I WAS ASKING IF IT'S SOME CITY SOMEWHERE NOT CLOSE TO EACH OF US IS SOMEWHERE NEW THAT ALLOWS FOR

[01:10:09]

DIFFERENT ADDITIONS OF EXCHANGE OF IDEAS AND EXPERIENCE. BECAUSE AS YOU'RE SAYING OUR POPULATION IS VERY CULTURAL AND WE HAVE SOME OF THAT. SO MAYBE WE NEED TO ADD THAT WHICH YOU DON'T HAVE. I KNOW YOU'RE LIKE BUBBLING OVER HERE. SO I WAS ASKING COMMISSIONER BOLTON IF YOU HAD IN MIND IF YOU'D ANSWER IS NO THE ANSWER IS NO THEN WE HAVE TO PROBABLY MOVE THIS TO ANOTHER TIME BECAUSE FORGIVE ME WE'RE ONLY ON NUMBER TWO AND IT'S A QUARTER TO ELEVEN AND WE DO HAVE A LOT OF STUFF GOING ON SO WE WILL I WILL. IF WE CAN'T GET A CONSENSUS ON THE CITY PART WE WILL HAVE TO COME BACK ON THAT PART. IS THERE A CITY THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO PUT FORTH WHEREAS NOT AT THIS TIME SAYS LITHUANIA IS MY FRIEND. CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE THE CROWN FOR TODAY. YES MA'AM. THE ENTIRE COUNTRY OF LITHUANIA ALSO. THAT'S IMPRESSIVE.

THANK YOU. I MAKE NOTE OF THAT. I'M I'M A LITTLE TORN WITH MY DECISION ONLY BECAUSE I KEEP HEARING YOU TALK ABOUT TURKEY IN THAT WE HAVE LOCAL PEOPLE HERE AND THAT MIGHT BE A GOOD WAY TO START BUT I ALSO KNOW VENEZUELA BECAUSE IT'S A TIE TO OUR CITY WHICH MIGHT BE A GOOD TIME. SO I'M I'M A LITTLE BIT WARMER SO I I'M A LITTLE BIT TORN THEY ARE SO AND JUST SO YOU KNOW OTHER CITIES THAT HAVE WELL-RUN PROGRAMS THEY KIND OF HAVE CRITERIA ON WHICH TO BASE THE SISTER CITY CONNECTIONS. SO ONE IS YOU KNOW KIND OF SIMILAR EDUCATION SITUATION YOU KNOW LIKE WE PROBABLY WE DON'T HAVE A UNIVERSITY IN TAMARACK SO IT'S NOT AS IMPORTANT FOR US BUT OUR SISTER CITY HAS UNIVERSITY BUT WE WANT ENGAGE OUR STUDENTS IN MIDDLE SCHOOL HIGH SCHOOL YOU KNOW THINGS OF THAT NATURE CULTURAL CONNECTIONS AGAIN. BUT WE DO HAVE A LOT OF DIFFERENT CITIES BECAUSE WE ARE A VERY DIVERSE POPULATION. AND THEN THERE IS NO ECONOMIC CONNECTION OBVIOUSLY WHICH IS WHY I HEAR UNIFORM OF VENEZUELA. BUT THE LAST CONSIDERATION IS THE CONNECTIVITY THAT ABILITY TO ENGAGE IN BILATERAL TRAVEL AND TRADE YOU KNOW SO. SO THAT'S ALSO ONE OF CONSIDERATIONS YOU KNOW IN TERMS UP AND WE'RE THINKING ABOUT SOME COUNTRIES WHERE THERE MIGHT BE SOME UNREST AND YOU KNOW THAT MIGHT BE A FACTOR. DEFINITELY WOULD BE A FACTOR. OK. COMMERCIAL EFFICIENT AND COMMISSIONER GO ON THESE COMMERCIAL FISHERMEN AND I DON'T HAVE A SPECIFIC CITY IN MIND. HOWEVER I DO THINK WE NEED TO HAVE CRITERIA. WE NEED TO ENSURE THAT AS LAURA SAID WE HAVE SIMILARITIES AND ALL OF THOSE THINGS. SO WE ALSO NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE SIMILAR SIMILARITIES IN OUR HUMAN RIGHTS AS WELL. YES. AND THAT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO ME. SO. SO GOING BACK TO A LAW WAS SAID REGARDING CONNECTIVITY. SO WE HAVE A SIGNIFICANT HISPANIC POPULATION HAS SPENT A SIGNIFICANT CARIBBEAN SLASH BLACK POPULATION AND WE HAVE A SIGNIFICANT JEWISH POPULATION IN TAMARACK. AND WHEN I LOOK AT THE SISTER CITIES PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF FLORIDA ALMOST EVERY SISTER CITY HAS SOME KIND OF PARTNERSHIP WITH A CITY IN ISRAEL. SO IF WE'RE GOING TO TARGET TWO OR THREE CITIES I THINK ONE SHOULD BE FROM LATIN AMERICA. ONE SHOULD BE FROM THE CARIBBEAN. AND ONE SHOULD BE FROM ISRAEL. AND I THINK THAT WOULD BE A GOOD START. AND JUST LIKE YOU KNOW IN ADDITION TO TURKEY AND ISRAEL WE THE STATE OF FLORIDA ACTUALLY WORKS WITH ISRAEL ON AN EXCHANGE ALREADY IN THE AEROSPACE AND SPACE COAST WITH THEIR TECH AND INNOVATION. SO STATE OF FLORIDA MATCHES A MILLION DOLLAR GRANT WITH A MILLION DOLLARS THAT COMES FROM ISRAEL EVERY YEAR TO DO THAT EXCHANGE IN AEROSPACE. SO ISRAEL IS A GOOD TARGET MARKET BECAUSE YOU CAN ALSO KIND OF BY SOME POINTS PUT THE STATE ON IT. KELLY COUNTY COMMISSIONER OR INVITES ME IN THEIR HOME OFFICE IN ISRAEL RIGHT NOW ON A TRADE MISSION. AND OUR GOVERNOR WAS JUST THERE.

YEAH. I THINK AT THIS POINT IN TIME WE'VE GOT CONSENSUS THAT WE WANT TO MOVE FORWARD THIS FRIENDSHIP CITY. I THINK WHEN THE UNIFORM ACTUALLY IS MORE TIED TO SPAIN MY UNDERSTANDING IS MY RECOLLECTION IS CORRECT. I THINK AT THIS POINT IN TIME IF YOU WOULD YOU'VE GOT CRITERIA LET'S LOOK AT THE CRITERIA FIGURE OUT SOME CITIES

[01:15:02]

THAT ARE ALONG THE LINES AND THEN WE CAN CIRCLE BACK ON THE CITY ITSELF. BUT THE BIGGEST THING IS BEFORE WE EVEN HAVE A CITY TO REACH OUT TO OR CITIES TO REACH OUT TO. WE NEED TO HAVE THAT GROUP OF PEOPLE PUTTING IT TOGETHER TO DO THE REACH OUT FOR US AND BE ABLE TO GROW THIS PROPERLY AND FIGURE OUT ON A TRUE BUDGET VERSUS AN ESTIMATE WHAT WE HOPE TO TO ACCOMPLISH IN THE BEGINNING BEFORE WE GROW. SO ON THAT NOTE I WILL THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. APPRECIATE YOUR TIME. AND AT 10 52 WE ARE GOING TO TAKE IF WE'RE GOING TO COME BACK AT 1 1 0 5. COFFEE IN RESTAURANTS IT'S GOT THEM. IT IS NOW 11:00 0 8. AND WE ARE BACK IN SESSION FOR A PUBLIC ART DISCUSSION. NUMBER THREE WITH

[3. Public Art Discussion]

OUR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR MAXINE CALLOWAY AND PUBLIC ART ADMINISTRATORS GEORGE GADSON AND BETH RAVITZ. THOUGH IT IS SOME GOOD MORNING THIS GO AHEAD. OH YES. OK WE'RE HERE TODAY TO TALK ABOUT IT. IT'S BETH RAVITZ OF GADSON AND RABBITS AND TO GET TO THE MEMBERS GETS AN RAVITZ LLC. WE HAVE THREE PROJECTS THAT WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT. SHOW YOU FOR DISCUSSION. ONE IS CALLED INSPIRATION WAY. ONE IS CALLED COLONY WEST BANK WALL RELIEF. AND THE THIRD IS THAT TCC THE TAMARA COMMUNITY CENTER MURAL INSPIRATION WAY. THIS IS AN ART ON LOAN PROGRAM. THE CALL TO ARTISTS WAS ISSUED MARCH 20 19. WE HAVE A PURCHASE BUDGET OF SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. IF WE SHOULD DESIRE TO USE THAT BUDGET IT IS NOT MANDATORY. THE ARTISTS WERE TOLD THAT BUT THE TWO IN ORDER TO ENCOURAGE REALLY GOOD ARTISTS TO APPLY. IT'S A LITTLE BIT LIKE DANGLING A CARROT BEFORE THEM THAT WE HAVE SIXTY THOUSAND APPROVED IF WE SHOULD DESIRE TO BUY ONE OR SIXTY THOUSAND IF THERE IS ONE THAT'S TEN THOUSAND. THAT'S 20. ANYTHING THAT ADDS UP TO THE 60 IF WE SO DESIRE WE RECEIVED 35 RESPONSES. THE FINAL SELECTION WAS 15 AND THE INSTALLATION AND RIBBON CUTTING IS PROJECTED RIGHT NOW FOR SEPTEMBER 2019 19 AND THE IMAGE BELOW THAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT ARE THE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS WHERE IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY WHEN YOU'RE DRIVING YOU WILL SEE THE CONCRETE PADS HAVE ALREADY BEEN POURED IN THESE LOCATIONS. WE WENT AHEAD AND BECAUSE THIS WAS SO WELL LIKED AND THE COMMITTEE PURCHASED THIS FOR TWENTY EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS AND IT WILL BE INSTALLED AT SEVENTY SEVENTH AND PINE ISLAND. RIGHT WHEN YOU LEAVE CITY HALL IF YOU GO A LITTLE BIT NORTH AND YOU CAN SEE THE PAD THERE RIGHT NOW THIS IS CLAYTON SCHWARTZ IT'S CALLED THE FAMILY OF HEARTS AND CLAYTON RESIDES IN PINELLAS PARK FLORIDA. AND THIS IS ONE OF THE SCULPTURES THAT WILL BE IN THE EXHIBIT. ROBERT CORDY SCO IS FROM PALM BEACH GARDENS AND COINCIDENTALLY PASTOR BRYAN APPROVED OF THIS SCULPTURE AND THAT WILL BE PLACED ON THE CHURCH GROUNDS. THIS IS ANNA DONAHUE AND SHE'S FROM GRAND RAPIDS MICHIGAN AND THIS IS THE BRONZE REALISTIC SCULPTURE. GEORGE AND I HAD ONE PAD FOR SMALL R SCULPTURE THAT WOULD BE RAISED OFF THE GROUND MORE THAN THE OTHERS. AND THIS SCULPTURE WILL GO THERE. THIS IS HANNA GIBRAN. HE IS FROM NORTH CAROLINA. GRIMES BILL NOR A GRINDSTONE NORTH CAROLINA. I NEVER HEARD OF IT BUT I HAVE WORKED WITH THIS ARTIST BEFORE ONE CORAL SPRINGS DID THEIR VERY FIRST SCULPTURE ON THE AVENUE AND HE WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO HIS HIS PIECE WAS PURCHASED AND IF YOU WANT TO SEE IT IT'S AT THE LIBRARY IN CORAL SPRINGS ON UNIVERSITY AT THE CORNER OF SAMPLE. THIS IS MARK. CHATTER LEE FROM MICHIGAN AND IT IS CALLED BIG HEADS AND IT'S CERAMIC. AND HIS WORK WAS CHOSEN FOR ITS HUMOR AND PULLS IT AWAY FROM SOME OF THE OTHER WORKS. THIS IS ROBERT KOONS AND HE IS FROM VERO BEACH FLORIDA AND HE HAS SINCE NAMED HIS PIECE SINCE WE DID THE POWERPOINT. AND I DON'T KNOW THAT I CAN PRONOUNCE IT BUT IT'S CALLED CAT SO TOTAL DECLINATION THAT LARGER THAN THIS. IT DOES SEEM THAT WAY.

[01:20:09]

AND THIS IS MIKE HENSEL FROM RHODE ISLAND. AND THIS IS CALLED US LIVE. THIS IS LUIS FERNANDEZ AND IT'S CALLED BUTTERFLY. AND HE IS FROM VENICE FLORIDA.

AND HE USED TO LIVE IN MIAMI AND GEORGE AND I HAVE VISITED HIS STUDIO THIS IS LIE IN LONDON. HE'S FROM TEMPE ARIZONA. AND WE CHOSE TWO OF HIS SCULPTURES. OR ORACLE OF WIND AND GRACE AND THE ONE THAT I JUST SHOWED YOU WHICH IS ARTEMUS. THIS IS JERRY NEWCOMB AND HE IS FROM SEATTLE WASHINGTON AND THIS WAS CHOSEN TO TRY TO GET SOME DIFFERENT MATERIALS IN IT BECAUSE IT'S MADE OF GLASS AND METAL AND HE IS FROM SEATTLE RUSSELL WHITING. THIS IS A BRONZE AND IT'S FROM THE BOW BRIDGE LOUISIANA.

AND THIS SCULPTURES CALLED LEADERSHIP LEADER RACHE HAAS IS FROM PONTIAC MICHIGAN. AND THIS IS CALLED BLUE GEOMETRIC. AND AGAIN THIS WAS CHOSEN WE HAD GEORGE AND I HAD ONE PAD HAWED FOR A HORIZONTAL SCULPTURE AND THIS WAS IS HORIZONTAL AND THE LAST IS RAY KATZ. AND HE IS FROM PONTIAC MICHIGAN AND WE HAVE SELECTED. WE DIDN'T SELECT TWO OF THIS I THOUGHT WE HAD. I THINK HIS SECOND IS AN ALTERNATE IN CASE SOMEBODY WE HAVE ALTERNATES OF EVERY ARTIST HERE. WE HAVE AN ALTERNATE SCULPTURE FROM THEM JUST IN CASE WE RUN INTO ANYTHING WE WANTED TO BE COVERED. AND THAT'S RIGHT. YES. ALL RIGHT. WE'RE PREPARED BEFORE WE GO TO THE NEXT TWO. IF YOU DON'T MIND CAN WE TAKE THEM SEPARATELY. YES START GREAT COLLEAGUES DO YOU HAVE ANY COMMENTS QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS ABOUT ANY OF THE PIECES THOUGHTS THAT. ALL RIGHT. VICE MAYOR YOU ARE UP. THANK YOU. WE HAVE BEEN WAITING A REALLY LONG TIME FOR THIS. AND I'M SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THIS. WHEN DO WE EXPECT. HAVE WE SIGNED THE CONTRACTS WITH THE ARTISTS YET. LET'S BACK UP. NO WE HAVE NOT. THAT IS PENDING THAT WE. ARE IN THE PROCESS OF DRAFTING THE CONTRACTS. WE WANTED TO COME HERE FIRST. THESE ARE RECOMMENDATIONS OF COURSE FOR INSTALLATION ON INSPIRATION WAY AS MENTIONED BY BETH IT'S TEMPORARY IN NATURE. IT'S INTENDED TO BE INSTALL FOR A YEAR AT A TIME AND THEN ROTATED AFTER A YEAR. SO WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF PUTTING THAT TOGETHER WITH A PROJECTED INSTALL DATE OF SEPTEMBER OF THIS YEAR SEPTEMBER 2009. OK. EXCELLENT AS I SAY. WE'VE WAITED A LONG TIME FOR THIS.

WE HAD WORD OUT AND WE LET THE RESIDENTS NAME IT INSPIRATION WAY I KNOW I'M CONTINUING TO BE ASKED ABOUT IT. I'M HOPING THAT WHEN EVERYTHING IS IN PLACE IT'S A BIG FANFARE. WE NEED TO ADVERTISE IT EVERY WAY POSSIBLE WE NEED TO GET THE WORD OUT. I DON'T KNOW HOW WE CAN GO ABOUT TOURING BECAUSE PEOPLE NEED TO BE ABLE TO GET TO THESE YOU KNOW UP CLOSE PERSONAL PHOTO OPS. SO I'M HOPING WE CAN FIND A WAY TO DO THAT. BUT WHAT WE'RE HOPING TO HAVE A NICE EVENT IN SEPTEMBER AND WE'VE CONTACTED DIFFERENT DANCE SCHOOLS BECAUSE WE WANT DANCERS TO GO AROUND EACH SCULPTURE AND DO A DANCE. SO WE'RE HOPING FOR A VERY NICE EVENT FOR THE RIBBON CUTTING NOT JUST A REGULAR RIBBON CUT RIGHT FOR EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE SAYING SO THAT WE CAN HAVE PEOPLE WALK ON THE SIDEWALK ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE STREET.

EVERY SCULPTURE HAS A SIDEWALK. AND BY THE WAY THIS GOES EXTENDS FROM IT'S ON PINE ISLAND. IT'S ON NOB HILL AND IT GOES FROM MCNAB DOWN TO COMMERCIAL AND THERE IS A SIDEWALK WHERE PEOPLE CAN WALK. SO WE'RE HOPING FOR THAT. ADDITIONALLY THE SITE LOCATIONS WOULD LEND THEMSELVES ALSO TO VEHICULAR TRAFFIC IF YOU WILL. THEY WANT TO PULL AROUND AND PUT INTO A PARKING LOT IF YOU WILL. THERE'S AMPLE PARKING AND ONE SPECIFICALLY I THINK WITH THE CHURCHES THERE'S A SIDE STREET THERE. AND I EVEN HOPE AND FEEL THAT THE CITY OWNS THE THREE MAJOR SCULPTURES WILL GO THERE. SO IN TERMS OF THAT OPPORTUNITY FOR PULLING OVER IN A PARKING SPACE FOR PHOTO OPS IS DEFINITELY THERE. BUT WE MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER MAKING ARRANGEMENTS WITH VSO TO HAVE MAYBE SOMEONE THERE DIRECTING TRAFFIC TO PUT THEM INTO THE PARKING LOT OR WHEREVER. I MEAN THIS IS A BIG EVENT FOR US. THIS IS A HUGE DEAL. AND I THINK WE

[01:25:03]

NEED TO DRAW PEOPLE OUT. LET THEM WALK AROUND LET THEM SEE LET THEM TAKE PICTURES THEN KNOW THAT TAMARACK REALLY DOES HAVE AN EXTENSIVE ART COLLECTION. I ALSO WOULD LIKE THEM TO KNOW THAT THIS WILL BE ROTATING. WE WILL BE CONTINUING TO DO THAT. SO GREAT JOB. CAN'T WAIT. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. SURE. GO. I WAS AT A COMMUNITY MEETING AT PLUM BAY AND A QUESTION WAS ASKED ABOUT THESE CONCRETE BLOCKS ACROSS NOB HILL WHERE THIS IS GOING TO BE RESCUED SIR. YES THAT'S CORRECT.

VERY GOOD. SO ARE WE. HAVE WE PURCHASED ALL OF THESE PIECES OF ART. NO. THESE THESE PARTICULAR IMAGES ARE A SCULPTURE THAT ACTUALLY WILL BE ON LOAN IF YOU WILL. AND AS MY COLLEAGUE HERE MENTIONED THERE'S A PURCHASE BUDGET IF INDEED THE COMMISSIONERS DETERMINE THERE THERE'S A PIECE THAT THEY WOULD DEFINITELY LIKE TO HAVE ONE OR TWO THAT WOULD TOTAL TO SIXTY THOUSAND AT WHICH TIME THEN THE PURCHASE WOULD TAKE PLACE. BUT THIS IS A VERY POPULAR PROGRAM AROUND THE COUNTRY RIGHT NOW WHERE DIFFERENT CITIES HAVE INITIATED IT AND IT'S A SCULPTURE LOAN PROGRAM. WE HAVE DECIDED THAT WE WANT THE SCULPTURE UP FOR ONE YEAR. WE ARE GIVING EACH ARTIST TWENTY FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS STIPEND HALF. THEY'LL GET UPON INSTALLATION OF THEIR SCULPTURE AND THE OTHER HALF IN A YEAR UPON THE INSTALLATION OF THE SCULPTURE.

MAYBE WE WILL PURCHASE SOMETHING WHICH IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR AN ARTIST AND FOR THE EXPOSURE FOR THE ARTIST AND FOR US AS A CITY. IT'S AN ART APPRECIATION CLASS WITHOUT HAVING TO GO TO A MUSEUM AND WE HAVE THE OPTION TO DO IT YEARLY. IF YOU SO DESIRE AND INTEREST TO ADD TO THAT WE HAVE RIGHT OF RIGHT TO PURCHASE FIRST. IT DOESN'T MEAN ANY MEMBER FROM THE PUBLIC IF YOU LIKE A PIECE WITHIN THE YEAR YOU TOO CAN MAKE AN OFFER AND PURCHASE A PIECE YOU KNOW SO IT HELPS THE ARTIST IN DISPLAYING YOUR PIECE. SO WE CAN'T GET EVERYTHING FOR 60 THOUSAND. YES WE CAN'T GET EVERYTHING 60 THOUSAND. BUT IF YOU'VE EVER DRIVEN BY USED TO BE THE MERRILL LYNCH BUILDING YOU CALL SPRINGS UNIVERSITY AND SAMPLE THERE IS A BRUSHED ALUMINUM SILVER SCULPTURE SITTING ON THE LAWN. IT'S CALLED THE NICKNAME IS THE PRETZEL. I HAPPENED TO PASS IT AGAIN THIS MORNING BECAUSE IT'S A WONDERFUL LOCATION FOR IT. AND AGAIN IT WAS RELOCATED AFTER THE PROGRAM WAS FINISHED FOR THOSE FEW MONTHS. SO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT IF YOU IF YOU GET A CHANCE THAT IT CAN BE VERY SUCCESSFUL. I ALSO.

CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG BUT I THINK THE OTHER PART OF THE THE PROGRAM'S OFFERING IS THE PUBLIC WOULD BE MADE AWARE OF COURSE OF THE SCULPTURES AND THE PUBLIC WOULD BE GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY ALSO FOR PEOPLE'S CHOICE. I BELIEVE IT IS. AND THERE'S SOME COMPENSATION THERE FOR THE ARTISTS WHOSE SCULPTURE IS CHOSEN BY THE PUBLIC. WE ALSO HAVE A 1000 DOLLAR BEST IN SHOW. OK. SO ARE ALL 15 PIECES GOING TO BE DISPLAYED. YES SIR. OK. ALL RIGHT. WELL THAT'S ALL I HAD I DIDN'T WANT TO ADD THAT HAD I HAD A MEETING OF MY COMMUNITY MAYBE TWO WEEKS AGO I HAD 50 OR 60 PEOPLE SHOW UP AND I TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW THAT PICTURE OF THE GUY ON THE BIKE AND THE FIRST PICTURE THAT I SHOWED WAS IT WAS JUST A GUY ON A BIKE FROM THE HOTEL. THE SECOND PICTURE I SHOWED WASN'T FROM THE HOTEL. THERE WAS A BIG LAUGH IN THE ROOM.

SO LAURA WAS THERE TOO SALES WERE THERE A WAS THERE. SO. SO THAT I GUESS THAT WAS THE REACTION YOU GUYS WERE LOOKING FOR. SO WAS THERE. AND SO I DO THINK I DO FAVORITE THAT PIECE ONCE AGAIN TODAY. THANK YOU FOR SHARING THANK YOU COMMISSIONER. GO. IT WAS EFFICIENT. MY QUESTION IS IN EACH OF THESE INSTALLATIONS WILL THERAPY THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE PIECE. THE NAME. ABSOLUTELY THE NO NAME. THE MATERIAL THAT THEY WORKED IN AND PERFECT RICE AND AND THE CITY THAT THE ARTIST IS FROM. RIGHT AND EVERY. WELL THERE'LL BE A PLAQUE ON EACH PAD AND ARE THE PADS ILLUMINATED. ARE THE PIECES GOING TO BE ELIMINATED. YES THEY WILL BE WE'RE WORKING ON THAT NOW. THE WEST SIDE OF THE STREET HAS A LEFT TRACK THE EAST SIDE OF THE STREET DOES NOT. SO THE SCULPTURES ON THE EAST SIDE WILL BE HAVE SOLAR LIT BY SOLAR AND THAT'S BEING WORKED ON NOW.

PERFECT THANK YOU. THANK YOU. I'M SURE YOU ALREADY LOOK INTO THIS. BUT WITH THE DIFFERENT MATERIALS IN THE SUN AND THE DRIVING AS LONG AS THIS SUGGESTS THE REQUESTS AND I'M SURE YOU DO IT ANYWAY JUST MAKE SURE THAT SOME OF THESE BEAUTIFUL PIECES THAT ARE IN A MATERIAL THAT COULD HAVE REFLECTING LIGHT. WE DON'T HAVE SOMEBODY RUN OFF THE ROAD AND INTO IT AS FAR AS WHEN WE DO THIS. WOMEN CUTTING

[01:30:05]

KICK OFF. MAYBE WE CAN FIGURE OUT A WAY TO CLOSE THE ROAD FOR A DAY AND WE CAN HAVE SOMETHING LINED UP WHERE WE PEOPLE IN PARK INSERT LOCATIONS ASKED THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY IF WE CAN BORROW THEIR PARKING LOT. SUCH AS TAMARA MARKETPLACE OR SOME OTHER AREAS MAYBE WE CAN ASK THE CHURCH IF WE CAN BORROW THEIR PARKING LOT. AND THIS WAY HAVE PEOPLE PARKED THERE AND COME ENJOY THE SCULPTURES TO BE ABLE TO SEE IT ALL BECAUSE I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS AND HE DOES HAVE ART FOR EVERYBODY. AND I AM JUST MY ONLY OTHER CURIOSITY IS THE FINANCES ON THIS SHOW YOU HAVE WORKED OUT BUT IF IT'S A SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLAR BUDGET WE'VE ALREADY PAID TWENTY FOR IT. THAT'S SEPARATE FROM THE SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLAR BUDGET. THAT IS CORRECT. OK. YES BECAUSE RIGHT OFF THE TOP THAT WE'RE IN THE HOLE. AND THE REASON THAT TOOK PLACE WHEN INITIALLY WE WERE AT THE CALL HAD GONE OUT SEVERAL MONTHS AGO. WE DIDN'T GET AS WHAT WE CALL THE WE'LL CONSIDER CREAM OF THE CROP IN TERMS OF CHOICES. BUT THIS PARTICULAR ONE IBIS WAS PART OF THAT AND THE COMMITTEE JUST SAID WE REALLY DON'T WANT TO LOSE THIS PIECE. AND AND THAT'S WHY THAT TWENTY EIGHT THOUSAND AND WOULD YOU BE PLEASED TO KNOW THAT ACTUALLY THE ARTIST WAS ASKING FOR MUCH MORE THAN THAT. AND ONE OF OUR COMMITTEE MEMBERS OUR WINNER SMITH WHO SINCE HAS TRANSITION OFF OF THAT OF THE COMMITTEE SHE SAYS LET'S NEGOTIATE IT. I CAN SEE WHAT TO DO THAT.

YES. AND NEGOTIATED AND WE HAVE A NICE SCULPTURE FOR A NICE PRICE. THANK YOU. AND THEN MY OTHER QUESTION WOULD BE SPEAKING OF THE NICE PRICES THE ARTISTS HAVE THEY GIVEN YOU THEIR IDEA OF HOW MUCH THEY WOULD LIKE FOR THEIR PIECES NOW. SO IN THE YEAR YES EVERY IDEA HAS GIVEN A FINITE PRICE. THEY KNOW THAT IT'S FINE. IT CAN GO UP IN IT COULD MANY TIMES IT DOES GO DOWN THAT PRETZEL IN FRONT OF MERRILL LYNCH. HE DID NOT WANT TO D INSTALL AND THAT'S IT. WITH THE CITY WE GOT THAT FOR A BARGAIN.

IT WAS JUST GREAT. SO A LOT OF VERY NICE NEGOTIATION HAPPENS IN THE END BECAUSE IT'S DIFFICULT FOR AN ARTIST TO TRAVEL ONE ARTIST FROM MICHIGAN. I SPOKE TO. HE SAID VERIFY THIS IS WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING AND I DRIVE EVERYWHERE AND INSTEAD OF PAYING FOR A COMPANY TO TRANSPORT HIS SCULPTURE. AND HE SAID FOR ME TO GET TO TAMARA FROM MICHIGAN HE SAID I HAVE TO DO IT FOUR TIMES I HAVE TO DRIVE SO TAMARACK TO DELIVER THE SCULPTURE AFTER DRIVE BACK HOME. THEN I HAVE TO COME BACK A YEAR LATER IF IT DIDN'T SELL GET IT AND DRIVE BACK HOME. YOU SAID THAT'S A THOUSAND DOLLARS IN GAS RIGHT THERE AND WHICH WAS HIS PIECE. SO I ALSO OF COURSE LEARNED THAT HE'S HIS EX WIFE IS IN BOCA. AND YOU KNOW IT'S IT'S IT'S FUN BUT THEY'RE NOT ENOUGH TO INITIALLY MAKE MONEY THERE. THEY'RE HERE FOR THE EXPOSURE AND HOPEFULLY TO THAT IT'S THE OPPORTUNITY TO FOR A PURCHASE IS TERRIFIC. UNDERSTOOD.

AND THEN ACTUALLY THE UPKEEP OF THESE ITEMS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. IF SOME OF THEM THAT HAVE COLORFUL PAINT OR MATERIALS THEY WILL BE MAINTAINING IT OR WE'RE OBLIGATED TO MAINTAIN IT. THE GOOD THING ABOUT THESE SCULPTURES IS WE KNOW THAT WITHIN A YEAR IN TERMS OF THE CAN I SAY THIS THE MATERIALS THIS USED IS ADAPTABLE FORWARD IN SOUTH FLORIDA WEATHER. AND WITHIN NINE MONTHS TO A YEAR WE PRODUCE AND WE'LL INSPECT THEM AS THEY ARE BEING INSTALLED. BUT TYPICALLY ARTISTS WHO'VE BEEN DOING THIS AS THESE ARTIST HAVE BEEN ART WORK COMES PREPARED AND READY TO INSTALL WITH NO NEED FOR MAINTENANCE. SO I'M JUST THINKING ABOUT A YEAR LATER IF WE SHOULD BE BUYING ANY OF THESE PIECES OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT IF ANY OF OUR RESIDENTS OR BUSINESSES SHOULD DECIDE TO BUY THESE PIECES THAT THEY'RE GOING TO GET QUALITY PIECES THEY'RE NOT GOING HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT OH. CORRECT. IT'S JUST FADED OR MAYBE IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE. AND EVEN WITH THE PIECES OK WELL THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND NOW IT IS TIME TO MOVE ON TO THIS. THERE'S NOTHING ELSE ON THIS SEGMENT. OUR NAVY BASED RELIEF IS OUR NEXT PRESENTATION IS THE FOCUSING IN ON THE COLONY WEST CONSTRUCTION PROJECT. THE BAR RELIEF JUST BRIEFLY FOR THOSE WHO MAY NOT KNOW THE UNDERSIDE OF THE TERMINOLOGY OF VIBRANTLY. IS THIS IMAGINE A SCULPTURE THAT IS NOT FULL ROUND THAT YOU CAN VIEW IT FALL ROUND BUT RATHER IT'S STILL RAGED FROM THE FLAT WALL SURFACE SO THAT THERE IS SOME SENSE OF DEPTH AND DIMENSION. SO A BAR REALLY IS JUST THAT. SO IT ACTUALLY RAISES FROM THE WALL BUT YOU CAN'T ACTUALLY SEE IN THE FOREGROUND. SIMILAR TO IF YOU WILL IMAGINE THAT A COIN THAT WE

[01:35:03]

HAVE IT HAS THE PRESIDENT'S YOU KNOW FAKE FACES ON IT. IF WE SAW THAT IN A LARGE SCALE THAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED A BAR RELIEF. IT'S RAISED FROM THIS LAST YEAR.

SO THE CALL TO ARTISTS WENT OUT BACK IN JULY OF 2008. THE BUDGET FOR THIS PROJECT WAS FORTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS. WE RECEIVED ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN RESPONSES. AND OF COURSE THE LOCATION WILL BE TAKING PLACE AT THE INSTALLATION RATHER IN THE INTERIOR OF THE SOON TO BE BUILT HOTEL JUST TO GIVE IT CONTEXT. THE CLUBHOUSE I'M SORRY. JUST TO GIVE YOU THE CONTEXT OF THIS LOCATION THE HIGHLIGHTED AREA HERE ACTUALLY GIVES YOU THE LOCATION WHERE THE ART WORK WILL BE WILL BE. THE DIMENSIONS OF THAT WALL IS DIRECTLY ADJACENT TO THE BALLROOM. AM I CORRECT YOU CALL IT THE PRETTY FUNCTION FOR EACH AND EVERY AREA BEFORE YOU GO IN TO THE MAIN FUNCTION AND THE MEASUREMENTS OF THAT WALL IS 10 FEET HIGH BY THIRTY ONE FEET WIDE.

AND AGAIN IT'S JUST RIGHT OUTSIDE THE FUNCTION AREA. SO THEY COME AFTER THE MISSION OF THE ART THE COMMITTEE. NOW DOWN TO THE OF MY FINAL IS WHICH WAS NAME TO APPEAR HERE JIM BOWMAN WHO'S FROM ASHEVILLE NORTH CAROLINA TAYLOR METAIRIE OH SHE IS ACTUALLY FROM WEST PALM BEACH AND TARYN MITCHELL IS FROM WILMINGTON DELAWARE. SO WHAT WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU IS THE IMAGES AND PROPOSED SOME PREVIOUS WORK AS WELL AS PROPOSED WORK OF THESE THREE PARTICULAR ARTISTS AND JUST SHARE WITH YOU THE RECOMMENDATION BY THE SHOW ABOUT AGING. BUT FIRST JIM BOWMAN WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT HERE JIM IS A GLASS ARTISTS OF THESE YEARS. INSTALLATION IS DONE IN OTHER LOCATIONS WHERE HE'S ACTUALLY CREATED BUILDING SCULPTURES OF ALL DONE IN GLASS OR WHAT HE PRESENTED TO OUR COMMITTEE WAS THIS PARTICULAR IMAGE HERE AND WE'LL GET MORE DETAILS IN JUST A FEW MINUTES WITH OTHER SLIDES BUT HE'S PRESENTING HAND BLOWN GLASS KILN FIRED GLASS IN SYSTEM ABOUT 16 RECTANGULAR PIECES OF FOUR AT 48 INCHES TIMES EIGHT. YOU KNOW THE DIMENSIONS ARE HERE THE BLOWN GLASS WILL BE SEVEN CIRCULAR PIECES TWELVE INCHES TO 20 INCHES IN DIAMETER ON THE STILL ARMATURE IS CONSTRUCTED OF PIPES ETC ETC. AND WEIGHS ABOUT 500 POUNDS. WE DO NEED TO ADVISE YOU THAT THIS PARTICULAR ARTIST WHEN HE PRESENTED THIS PARTICULAR PIECE HOW REALLY HAVING CREATED AND SO IT WAS A CONCERN OF THE COMMITTEE THAT MAYBE THIS IS NOT REALLY THE BEST RETURN ON OUR INVESTMENT IN TERMS OF THE SIZE. NOW TO THE ARTIST CREDIT HE INDICATED HE DIDN'T REALLY OPEN HIS E-MAILS IN TIME AND SAW THAT HE WAS A SEMIFINALIST. SO THIS IS WHAT HE WAS PRESENTING TO THE COMMITTEE.

BUT HE IS DEFINITELY SINCE THAT TIME WE'VE BEEN IN COMMUNICATION WITH HIM. IF HE INDEED HIS STYLE OF WORK IS IS CHOSEN AND RECOMMENDED BY THE COMMISSION THAT HE WOULD BE WILLING TO CREATE A PIECE THAT WOULD DEFINITELY BE WORTHY OF THE FORTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLAR THESE ARE IMAGES THAT SHOWS A BIT MORE CLOSE UP OF THE WORK ITSELF AND HIS TITLE. THIS PIECE RIPPLES AND HE SORT OF CONNECTING IT TO I GUESS THE WATERWAYS HERE IN CAMERA. THAT'S PRETTY MUCH. AGAIN THIS WAS ALREADY CREATED BY HIM WHEN HE PRESENTED TO US. SO BUT HE'S OPEN TO ACTUALLY CREATING SOMETHING THAT IS EVEN MUCH MORE SPECIFIC TO THE CITY OF TAMARACK. THIS WAS A CONCERN ON THE PART OF THE COMMITTEE IN TERMS OF THE CONNECTIVITY. HOW DOES IT REALLY RELATE TO THE NEXT ARTISTS. TAYLOR ONTARIO AS I MENTIONED SHE'S FROM WEST PALM BEACH IS PROPOSING AND THIS IS A SAMPLE HERE. AND WE'VE GOT MORE DETAILS IN JUST A MOMENT PROPOSING TO DO A SEPARATE FOUR FEET BY FOUR FEET PANELS COMPRISING OF 1916 INCHES IN A SECTION. NOW WHAT YOU'RE SEEING HERE AND WE'LL GET A GREATER PHOTOGRAPH OF IT LATER IS A SECTION OF THIS JUST GIVE YOU THE THOUGHT PROCESS OF THE ARTIST. THIS IS SOME OF THE OTHER WORK THAT SHE'S DONE THAT THEY'VE DONE. THEY'RE BASED OUT OF WEST PALM BEACH METHOD ALL VERY FAMILIAR WITH THE THE ARTISTS AND AND THE COMPANY OF ARTISTS IF YOU WILL THAT WORK WITH MACAO GLASS ETHNIC MAORI GLASS

[01:40:01]

WHICH HAS BEEN IN LAKE WORTH FOR 41 YEARS. AND THIS IS THE COMMISSIONED WORK THEY WON IN MARLON'S PARKING CROSS SPRINGS. THERE'S SOME RESIDENTIAL WORK THAT THEY'VE DONE WHICH SHOWS A KIND OF A DIFFERENT STYLE DIFFERENT VARIETY. NOW THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS WORK THAT THEY'RE PROPOSING FOR THE CLUBHOUSE THE INSPIRATION FOR THEM WAS BASED UPON THE ACTUAL CITY OF TAMARACK ITSELF WHERE FROM AN AERIAL VIEW IF YOU LOOK AT THE STREETS SIDE IF THE STREET VIEW MORE IMPORTANTLY A GOOGLE GOOGLE EARTH IMAGE THESE IT'S TOOK THIS AND CONVERTED IT TO WHAT THEY'RE FOCUSING IN ON AS IF YOU WERE LOOKING FROM ABOVE. AND THAT'S WHAT THE PIECE IS CALLED. SO HERE IS A. HERE IS A SEGMENT OF ONE OF THE PANELS THAT'S DONE IN GLASS.

ALL OF THIS IS DONE IN GLASS FUSED GLASS. AND I LED TO PASS IT AROUND IF YOU LIKE.

IT'S A LITTLE BIT HEAVY SO THEY THEIR APPROACH WAS A LITTLE BIT MORE ABSTRACT IN TERMS OF IF YOU LOOK AT IT FROM AN AERIAL VIEW THE LAYOUT THE TOPOGRAPHY IF YOU WILL OF TAMARACK AND THEN TRANSLATING THAT INTO SOME TYPE OF ARTISTIC FORM TO GO ON TO THAT THAT WALL THAT HAS TO HAVE FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE THE COMMITTEE YOU KNOW HAS TO HAVE THAT WELFARE OUR NEXT ARTISTS TARAN MITCHELL IF WE MAY MR. MITCHELL IS FROM WILMINGTON DELAWARE AND I THINK MR. LEES HAS VOLUNTEERED TO BE DOWN A WHITE HORSE FOR WHAT YOU'RE SEEING HERE. THERE WAS THIS MAYBE MORE HERE MAYBE ON THE SIDE SIDE AS WE GO FORWARD AND THEN WE PARK IT OVER THERE. MM HMM. THANKS THANK YOU. WE APPRECIATE IT. THANK YOU. JEFF THESE ARE SOME OTHER IMAGES PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS. MR. MITCHELL HAS DONE THIS TYPE OF TYPE OF WORK FOR NOW THESE ARE THE INSPIRATIONAL CONCEPTS THAT HE PRESENTED TO THE COMMITTEE. AND WITHOUT READING VERBATIM IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE FIRST ONE ON THE TOP LEFT THE RETIREMENT ROSE IMAGERY YOU'LL SEE THAT IN THE DESIGN AND I'LL ASK MY ABLE COLLEAGUE TO BE MISS VANNA WHITE FORCE THE RETIREMENT ROSE IMAGERY. HE USED THAT TO PRETTY MUCH REPRESENT THE INITIAL RETIREMENT COMMUNITY OF TAMARACK AND THEN TO THE FAR RIGHT THE FAMILY IMAGERY YOU SEE HERE EVOLUTION OF THE CITY'S GROWTH FROM A TOP RETIREMENT COMMUNITY ACTUALLY TO A FAMILY ORIENTED TYPE OF CITY AS REPRESENTED BY THE ABSTRACT IMAGES OF THE FATHER THE MOTHER AND THE CHILD. THEN THE CATTLE EGRET WING NATURE IS PART OF OUR GROWING CITY THE CATTLE THAT THE BIRDS ARE ACTUALLY WINGS OF THE BIRD THAT THE BIRD.

YES YEAH THE CATTLE EGRET IS PART OF TAMARA ITS HABITAT. ITS WINGS REPRESENT SOARING HEIGHTS GROWING A COMFORTABLE PLACE TO LIVE. AND IN FACT SO AS WE LISTEN TO HIS PRESENTATION HE POINTED OUT EVEN FURTHER THE EDUCATION AND BUSINESS.

EDUCATION AND BUSINESS. AND OF COURSE BECAUSE OF THE CITY IS HAVING MORE IF YOU WILL INTO A MORE DIVERSE COMMUNITY. HE HAS CAPTURED DIVERSE ETHNICITY THREE OF THE IMAGES THERE WHICH IS YOU CAN SEE SORT OF IN THE BOTTOM LEFT OF THE OF THE AT THE BOTTOM LEFT HERE. YES THE SWIRL THERE. YES AND WELL THE THREE ARE THERE. AND THIS IS WHAT'S SO INTERESTING ABOUT IT. AND THEN OF COURSE THE SUBTROPICAL PALM TREES ARE

[01:45:01]

PRETTY APPARENT IN THE PALM TREES JUST RIGHT JUST RIGHT HERE. AND YES IT'S THANK YOU. SO HE TITLES THIS PIECE SHOWER AND GROW FOREVER SWEET TAMARACK HE SHOWS HERE A COLORLESS COLLAGE. AND THEN OF COURSE YOU KNOW THE COLOR IMAGE EIGHT FEET BY TWENTY EIGHT FEET WHICH IS REALLY RIGHT WITHIN THE PARAMETERS OF THE WALL ITSELF AND THE MATURE WOULD BE PINEWOOD WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO ME. THANK YOU. WITH THE APPROPRIATE COLOR OK SO SHALL WE. YES. MY ONLY CONCERN IS FOR RIGHT NOW LOCATION AND I DON'T WANT OUR FIRE CHIEF BEING UPSET WITH US. SO CAN WE WALK THIS BACK TO OVER THERE WHERE WE DON'T HAVE A FIRE HAZARD PLACE. I'M SURE WE WILL HAVE NO ISSUE BUT I COULD JUST FEEL IT FROM THE BACK OF THE ROOM. THANK YOU. AS THIS PIECE IS GOING BACK TO BE SAFELY ENSCONCED TO WHERE PEOPLE CAN WALK FREELY THROUGH THE ROOM AM. ARE YOU NEWLY FLIPPED OR YOUR OLDEST LEFT MOVEMENT. OKAY NEARLY MICHELLE MICHIGAN GOT TO GO FIRST OF ALL BY SUMMER HAVE SENIOR HIGHER TITLE. THIS IS RANKED NUMBER ONE FOR ME. I LIKE THE MEANING. I THINK IT'S PRETTY. I LIKE THE JIM BOWMAN PIECE AS WELL SO I WILL FALL IN NUMBER TWO RANKING FOR ME. AND THE THIRD PIECE THE TAIL THE MATERIAL PIECE WAS A GOOD ATTEMPT AT TRYING TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY BASED ON THE MAP. BUT THEN IT WORKED FOR ME SO I LIKE THIS PIECE. ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. VICE MAYOR. THANK YOU. OH YOU CALL ME. ONE DAY YOU'RE TAPIOCA MAGNET. THANK YOU. I LOVED THE BOWMAN PIECE. I. I UNDERSTOOD THE BOWMAN PIECE. I LOVED IT. I MEAN IT WAS VIVID COLORFUL. I UNDERSTOOD THAT YOU KNOW THAT WAS THE PIECE HE ALREADY HAD MADE AND HE DID AGREE TO DO IT MORE SPECIFIC TO TAMARACK BUT LOVE THAT PIECE. I WOULD LOVE TO FIND SOME PLACE IF NOT THIS SPOT FOR HIS WORK. I MEAN I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS INCREDIBLE AND HE PASSED THE DISCS AROUND TO US TO SEE AND THE WORK THAT WENT INTO IT WAS INCREDIBLE. SO ABSOLUTELY LOVED THAT THIS MITCHELL PIECE. THE WORKMANSHIP TO ME IS INCREDIBLE WITH THE WAY HE DOES IT WITH THE DIMENSIONS BUT THE COLORS TO ME ARE WAY TOO MUTED. I JUST I THINK WE NEED SOME COLOR CHANGES IF THIS IS WHAT SELECTED THEY NEED TO BE A LITTLE BIT MORE VIBRANT TO REALLY MAKE AN IMPRESSION. AND IS THE PIECE AS SHOWN HERE GOING TO BE FRAMED OUT SO IT DOES SHOW TO ME A FRAME AROUND IT. I BELIEVE THAT THAT IS THE INTENT BUT WE ARE ALWAYS OPEN TO GUIDING HIM INTO FULFILLING THE WISH. YEAH HE WAS INCREDIBLE THE AMOUNT OF WORK HE PUT INTO YOU KNOW INVESTIGATING THE CITY AND WHO WE ARE AND WHO WE WERE AND WHO WE'RE GOING TO BE. AND HE PUT A LOT OF THOUGHT INTO THIS. IT WAS REALLY QUITE REMARKABLE. BUT THE COLORS ARE JUST NOT WORKING FOR ME. WE CAN WORK WITH YOUR MODELS OK BUT LET'S NOT FORGET MR. BELLMAN. OK. I HAVE TO ECHO THE SENTIMENTS OF THE VICE MAYOR. THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WOULD HAVE SAID THE BOWMAN PIECE BLOWS ME AWAY. ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT A PRIX FUNCTION ROOM. YOU WANT SOMETHING THAT IS A CONVERSATION PIECE YOU WANT SOMETHING THAT STANDS OUT. YOU WANT SOMETHING THAT'S VIBRANT AND COLORFUL AND THE BOWMAN PIECE RIGHT OFF THE BAT FILLS ALL OF THAT FOR ME BUT I ALSO AGREE WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT THIS PIECE THE AMOUNT OF WORK THAT HE WENT THROUGH TO TRULY FIND THE SPIRIT OF TAMARACK IS PHENOMENAL. BUT I ALSO AGREE ON THE COLORS. THEY ARE VERY MUTED WHEN

[01:50:02]

ARE AGAIN TALKING ABOUT A PRE FUNCTION ROOM YOU WANT THOSE BRIGHT VIBRANT COLORS THAT ARE GOING TO DRAW YOU TO THE PIECE. MY CONCERN WITH THIS THESE COLORS IS THAT THEY WOULD BLEND INTO THE WALL AND NOBODY WOULD KNOW IT WAS THERE. SO IF WE CAN PUT THE COLOR VOLUME UP ON THIS PIECE I WOULD GO WITH THIS. IF WE CAN'T. I WOULD GO WITH THE BOWMAN PIECE. IF WE DON'T CHOOSE BOWMAN FOR THIS PARTICULAR PIECE WE'VE GOT TO KEEP THEM IN MIND FOR SOMETHING ELSE. THANK YOU. YOU'RE WELCOME. OH MY. I THOUGHT IS THE SAME. I MEAN I LIKE THIS PIECE. I MEAN I KNOW WHAT IT STANDS FOR. I THINK IT'S I THINK WHAT IT STANDS FOR STANDS MORE IN MY MIND THAN THE COLORS.

YOU KNOW I FIRST I DIDN'T I DIDN'T EVEN SEE THE FAMILY. YOU KNOW AND THEN YOU POINTED IT OUT I'M LIKE OH THERE'S LIKE PEOPLE. SO IT REALLY STANDS FOR WHAT WE STAND AND WHERE WE'RE GOING AS A CITY. SO ARE WE I REALLY LIKE THIS PIECE. I DON'T KNOW THAT THE COLORS ARE MORE VIBRANT. THE COLORS AREN'T. IT DEPENDS ON WHAT'S GOING ON INSIDE THE ROOM. I THINK IF I MAY WHAT'S WHAT IS MISSING AND I GET THAT I BOTH HAVE WORKED IN MATERIALS. WHAT MAKES A WORK POP IS IN ADDITION TO THE COLOR IS HAVING A SEALER ON IT THAT HAS A FINISH THAT'S A GLOSSY FINISH. AND I THINK THAT THAT WOULD WOULD ALSO CAN ADD TO IT. BUT YOUR YOUR YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS WILL DEFINITELY BE COMMUNICATED TO HIM. AND IF THIS PIECE IS CHOSEN WE FELT THAT IT WOULD BE A REALLY GOOD IDEA ON THE PLAQUE BESIDE IT TO HAVE THE EXPLANATION OF THE DIFFERENT SYMBOLS BECAUSE THAT HELPS TO MAKE THE PIECE VERY INTERESTING AND TIED MORE SPECIFICALLY INTO THE CITY. AND WITH THAT IT CREATES A CONVERSATION. AND INSTEAD OF IT BEING SO ABSTRACT THAT NOBODY CAN SEE IT BECAUSE YOU ACTUALLY GO TO WHERE YOU LOOK AT IT AND TALK ABOUT IT. SO AGAIN IT IS DEPENDENT ON WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE ROOM. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUNCTION ROOM IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE WE'RE GOING GO. CERTAINLY IF IT'S IN THIS ROOM YOU'RE GOING TO SEE IT. YOU KNOW I DON'T KNOW THE PRE I DON'T KNOW IF THE ROOM HAS THIS COLOR OR YES EACH ARTIST WAS TOLD THAT WHEN WE HAVE THE MATERIALS THE COLOR OF THE WALL THE WALLPAPER OR THE CARPETING THEY WILL BE RECEIVING THAT AND ADJUST THE WORK ACCORDINGLY. SO EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE SEEING. THAT'S ALL. YES. AND ONE OTHER THING THE BOWMAN PIECE THAT YOU ALL SEEM TO BE ATTRACTED TO. HE DOES SUSPENDED PIECES AS WELL WHICH YOU SAW IN HIS SUPPORT MATERIALS SO AND WE DON'T HAVE A SUSPENDED PIECE IN THE COLLECTION YET.

SO THAT'S AN IDEA. ALSO WE DON'T HAVE TO USE HIM FOR THE WALL. HE CAN WE CAN USE IT FOR SOMETHING SUSPEND IT AND THIS PIECE ALSO WILL BE LIT. WE HAVEN'T SPECIFICALLY DONE THAT YET BECAUSE WE'RE WAITING FOR THE FINALIZATION OF THE PIECE BUT THAT WILL BE INCORPORATED SO THAT IT WILL BE ENHANCED SO SO. SO IT'S NOT LIKE THEY'RE GONNA SEND US SOMETHING AND THEN WE DESIGN AROUND IT. THEY WILL GET THE COLOR IT.

YES. AND THEN SEE EVERYTHING AND THEN ADJUST THE REST OF THIS YEAR HE SAYS. I THINK THAT WOULD SOLVE OUR MAJOR CONCERNS. IT WOULDN'T STAND OUT BECAUSE EVERYBODY'S OBVIOUSLY YOU KNOW IMPORTANT. SO BETH AND I HAVE I'VE GOT IT. CERTAIN PROJECTS FOR EXAMPLE ARE ROGER STROLLERS HIS PARTICULAR SCULPTURE AS WELL AS ALBERT PALEY YOU KNOW WITH UNCOMMERCIAL BOULEVARD WHEN WHEN THOSE CONCERNS ARE THERE THEN IT'S OUR JOB TO ASSURE THAT THOSE CONCERNS ARE ADDRESSED IN A MANNER THAT DOES NOT LEAVE IT OPEN FOR SURPRISE. IS DELIVERED. SO WE'LL BE ON TOP OF THE ARTIST TO BE SURE ONCE HE HAS DONE THE COLOR PALETTE FOR THOSE IN THAT AREA THAT WE'LL MAKE SURE THAT THESE CONCERNS ARE TAKEN CARE OF. MR. GO AHEAD A QUESTION AND JUST HOW BIG IS 8 FEET BY 20 FEET. IS GOING TO BE LIKE SUPER SUPER WIDE. WELL THE CEILING

[01:55:01]

ROUGHLY IS ABOUT. I GOT OUR GUYS BACK HERE PROBABLY THAT THE CEILINGS HERE. WHAT ABOUT NINE ABOUT 10 FEET IN HEIGHT. OK. OK. AND THEN 28 FEET IS ACROSS THIS WHOLE WALL. PROBABLY NO. PROBABLY YEAH MAYBE IT'S ABOUT 20. HE'S MY SON. FAIRLY LARGE IT'S GOING GONNA BE VERY VISIBLE. OK WELL GOING ON AS 30 FEET LONG. SO TO COVER THE MAJORITY THE WALL MAJORITY 31 BY 10. YEAH. TWENTY 28 FEET. OH YEAH. THEY'RE HUGE. OK. SO BASICALLY AS I KIND OF SAID EARLIER WITH THE COLONY WAS THIS IS OUR WOW FACTOR AND I RESPECT THE TIME AND ENERGY AND THE THOUGHT THAT WAS PUT INTO THIS PIECE BY MR. MITCHELL. AND I THINK THAT IS DEFINITELY DONE ONE TENDER LOVING CARE BUT FORGIVE ME I DO NOT THINK THAT THIS POSSESSES THE WOW FACTOR THAT WE WANT IN A MODERN CLUB. WE'VE MADE THIS CLUBHOUSE MODERN. I HAPPEN TO THINK THE BOWMAN PIECE WHETHER IT IS FOR US OR NOT HAS THAT WOW FACTOR. IT HAS A VIBRANCE IT HAS A COLOR THIS COORDINATION OF SHAPES. IT HAS LIGHT IT HAS EVERYTHING IN THERE THAT A MODERN CONTEMPORARY BEAUTIFUL BUILDING WILL HAVE WHERE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO WANT TO TAKE PHOTOS OF IT I DON'T THINK PEOPLE ARE COMING TO OUR COMMUNITY ARE CALLING US FUNCTION ROOM AND ACTUALLY CARING ABOUT THE THOUGHTS THAT GO INTO HOW IT WAS MADE UP. FORGIVE ME. THEY'RE NOT. I DON'T BELIEVE THAT'S GOING TO BE THEIR PRIMARY CONCERN TO SEE IF IT ENCAPSULATES ALL OF WHAT TAMARACK HAS TO OFFER. I THINK IT IS A PIECE THAT CAN BE USED ELSEWHERE IN OUR CITY. IF THAT IS AN OPTION BUT I TRULY DO NOT THINK THAT EVEN WITH VIBRANT COLORS PUT ONTO IT THAT A WILL DO IT. SO PERSONALLY I DO THINK THAT THE BOWMAN PIECE IS IT IN THIS FORM OR IN WHATEVER OTHER FORM THAT HE PLANS ON TRYING TO MAKE FOR OUR CITY. AND SEEING THAT WE DO HAVE CONSENSUS ON THREE FOR THE MOMENT AND IT HAS BEEN LIKED BY OTHERS AS WELL. CAN WE ASK HIM TO DO A DRAWING OUT BEFORE HE PUTS FORTH A LOT OF ENERGY INTO AN ACTUAL PIECE JUST IN CASE THE PIECE HE CURRENTLY HAS IS A BETTER PIECE OR THE ROOM THAN THE OTHERS. WE WOULD NOT WANT TO WASTE HIS TIME ON MAKING A PIECE OF WOOD NOT WHAT MIGHT JUST SIT IF THE ORIGINAL BOWMAN PIECES THE BETTER PIECE. WE HAVE CONSENSUS. WE HAVE THREE AT LEAST WHO LIKE THE BOWMAN PIECE BETTER. YES AND YOU EVEN LIKE THE PIECE. I LIKE YOUR NUMBER TWO. CAN WE CONFIRM REMEMBER. IF YOU FEEL THE NEED COMMISSION ASSESSMENT. IF I HAD MY PREFERENCE I WOULD GO WITH THE BOWMAN PIECE. I THINK IT HAS THE WOW FACTOR WE'RE TALKING ABOUT. MR. BALL GO. I LIKE THIS PIECE OKAY. I LOVE SHOWERING GROWTH. AND AGAIN IT'S NOT THAT THE PIECE IS NOT NICE IT'S THE LOCATION. AND THIS ONE IS LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. AND SO WE'VE GOT CONSENSUS FOR THREE ON THE BOMB AND PIECE WITH THAT LUCK. SO NO WE'RE NOT THERE. I LOVE YOU BUT I'M SORRY. YES. THERE YOU GO. SO DEADLOCK MIKE IS GOING TO BE SO MAYOR LIKE SOMEONE OVER WITH A BOMB AND HE'S JUST GOT A POINT OF CLARIFICATION. ISN'T THAT THE STYLE OF MR. GOLDMAN IS IS WHAT YOU ARE IN FAVOR OF THIS. YOU KNOW THAT THIS PARTICULAR PIECE IS NOT THE SIZE THAT WOULD ACCOMMODATE A 10 FOOT BY 30 FOOT WALL. SO MR. GOLDMAN I HAD AGREED THAT HE WOULD REDESIGN SOMETHING ELSE. OK. WE CAN THEN BRING BACK BEFORE YOU FOR YOUR APPROVAL. LET'S FACE.

YES. AND LETTING HIM KNOW THAT THE WOW FACTOR IS WHY THE MAJORITY IS GOING WITH HIS PIECE OF THE GLASS WORK AND THE MODERNIZATION OF HIS FEET. I THINK YOU UNDERSTAND MY LACK OF ENGLISH RIGHT NOW. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. OK. SO MOVING ON TO THE NEXT SEGMENT WE ARE TO TALK ABOUT COMMUNITY CENTER 10TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF TAMARACK HISTORICAL SOCIETY THE ART. THIS WAS THIS ARTIST WAS DIRECTLY SELECTED FOR THIS PROJECT. THE PUBLIC ART COMMITTEE OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS HAS WANTED TO

[02:00:02]

PLACE MURALS THROUGHOUT THE CITY ON DIFFERENT BUILDINGS SUCH AS THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA HAS A VERY FAMOUS AT THIS POINT MURAL PROGRAM ON BUILDINGS TO THE POINT THAT IT IS A DESTINATION AND IN FACT ONE SUMMER I WENT AS A DESTINATION AND I WOULD VERY MUCH ADVISE ALL OF YOU TO DO WHAT IT WAS A WONDERFUL WONDERFUL THEY HAVE TOURS AND WALKING TOURS THEY HAVE BUS TOURS THEY ADDED WITH GUIDES AND IT'S VERY INTERESTING. SO WE CHOSE AN ARTIST THAT WAS A SEMIFINALIST AT SPORTS PLEX WHERE CECILIA LOISEAU RIGHT NOW WON THE COMMISSION AT SPORTS PLEX THEN SHE'S PAINTING IT NOW ON A DUGOUT IF ANY OF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GO VISIT HER. SHE'S BUSY PAINTING BUT THIS ARTIST FROM DE BARI AND ASSOCIATES. WE LOVED WHAT HE HAD DONE VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT WE'RE DISCUSSING RIGHT NOW. WE LOVE WHAT HE DID HIS STYLE BUT IT WASN'T APPROPRIATE FOR THE SPORTS PLEX SO THEREFORE WE FOUND ANOTHER LOCATION AT TAMARACK COMMUNITY CENTER. AND WE KNOW THAT THIS YEAR MARKS THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE HISTORIC COMMISSION A HISTORIC COMMITTEE. AND WE GAVE THE ARTIST SEVERAL IDEAS FOR WHAT THEY COULD INCLUDE FOR THE HISTORY OF TAMARACK BUT WE LEFT IT UP TO THE ARTIST TO CHOOSE WHICH IMAGES HE WOULD LIKE TO INCLUDE. SO HERE'S SOME OF THE IMAGES AND THIS IS A BOOK MANY MANY CITIES HAVE THIS BOOK WHICH SHOWS THE HISTORY OF THE PARTICULAR CITY AND THIS IS THE HISTORY OF TAMARACK BOOK AND THAT'S THE FIRST MAYOR SO WE JUST SHOWED THEM DIFFERENT IMAGES THAT THEY COULD INCLUDE IF THEY SO DESIRED. THIS WAS THE FIRST ITERATION THAT THE ARTIST CAME BACK WITH AND WE STARTED TWEAKING IT AT THIS POINT. THIS IS ANOTHER IMAGE THAT AFTER WE TWEAKED AND WE ASKED FOR ONE MORE TWEAK AND THIS IS THE FINAL AND YOU CAN SEE WE TRIED TO POINT OUT TO YOU SOME OF THE A FEW OF THE THINGS THAT HE INCLUDED THERE.

BUT THIS IS THE FINAL MURAL AND WE FEEL THAT IT DOES INCLUDE A LOT OF THE HISTORY AND IS READY TO GO. HIS CONTRACT HAS BEEN SIGNED SO JUST TO SHOW YOU THERE'S THE PHOTOGRAPH HERE OF THE DON CARTER. WE USE THE ARROW TO KIND OF SHOW YOU WHERE HE INCORPORATED THAT. ADDITIONALLY ALSO HERE IT'S A LITTLE BIT HARD TO SEE HERE ON THE SCREEN BUT THERE'S ALSO THAT THAT ONE OF THE OLD TAMARACK LOGOS. OF COURSE THE FAMOUS PHOTOGRAPH OF THE MAYOR WITH A SIGN THAT SAYS ADULTS AT PLAY ABOUT BLOCK IS THE MOST CURRENT IF YOU WILL FROM THE FROM THE MARQUEE FOR OTHER CITIES THE CITY'S LOGO THE BRANDING FUNCTION SECTION AND SOME OTHER PUBLIC ARTISTS THAT EXIST WITHIN THE CITY THE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL THE SHUFFLEBOARD COURTS ARE LOCATED HERE.

SO THE ARTISTS AS BEST AS HE COULD REALLY TRY TO CAPTURE THOSE HISTORIC ICONIC IMAGES THAT WOULD BRING BACK MEMORIES OF SOME SORT. SO THOSE WHO REALLY DO NOT REALLY ARE FOR ME WITH THE CITY OF TAMARACK AND AS HISTORY THE THING THAT HE WAS COGNIZANT OF. AND AS ARTISTS WE ARE AND THAT IS YOU CAN'T GET EVERYTHING IN TO THE IMAGE BECAUSE THEN IN SO DOING TOO MUCH IS IT IT CLUTTERS IT. BUT WE THOUGHT THAT THIS OCCURS WE MEANING THE COMMITTEE THEMSELVES AND WE HAD TO WRITE AND PASS OF OTHER FOLKS AS WELL TO GET THEIR VIEWPOINT. AND THIS IS THE FINAL PIECE THAT HE WILL BE STARTING IN MOMENTARILY MOMENTARILY AND MOMENTARILY. BECAUSE IT IS BEING TIED INTO THE HISTORY COMMITTEE'S EVENT IN JULY TO CELEBRATE THEIR TENTH ANNIVERSARY. MY COLLEAGUES HAVE MANY QUESTIONS. BY SUMMER. OH COULD YOU PUT THAT LAST FLIGHT PLEASE. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE ONE. YES THE FIRST ONE IN THE

[02:05:01]

CITY. I KNOW I'M LOOKING A LITTLE HAGGARD RIGHT NOW BUT I DON'T THINK I LOOK LIKE THAT. I'M SUPPOSED TO BE WEARING JOGGING OR SOMETHING AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE'S WEARING IT WAS THAT THAT WAS NOT INTENTIONAL. THE LAST ITERATION THAT HE PROVIDED US WITH JUST A FEW DAYS AGO IT WAS ACTUALLY I SAW IT AND IT WAS POINTED OUT TO US BY A FEW OTHER PEOPLE AND HE CAN MAP HE CAN MODIFY THAT AS WE AS HE BEGAN THE PROCESS. WE WILL LET HIM KNOW. NO WE DON'T NEED TO HAVE A YARMULKE ON. I WAS CURIOUS IF THAT WAS INTENTIONAL. NO MA'AM. NO MA'AM. AND AGAIN AND I DON'T FROM THE ARTIST PERSPECTIVE I'M PRETTY SURE THAT HE DOESN'T SEE IT AS A YARMULKE. BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY IT'S THE CLIENTS WHOSE VIEWS IT THAT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IT TRANSLATES WELL. WELL YOU CAN LEAVE IT ON THOSE TO BE WEARING THE JOGGING OR AND IT'S ALMOST LIKE YES WE'VE NOW GOTTEN TO PSYCHO. WE'VE GOT SOME GOOD MEMORIES. YEAH. IT'S THE OPPOSITE. OH YES THE ORIENTATION. THAT IS CORRECT. AND STILL AS WELL. YEAH. IT'S ARTISTICALLY ARSENAL'S SEAL AS WELL. IS IT GOOD. WELL THAT'S ONE OF THE PLASTIC ITSELF MEANING THAT WE ARE. SO HE'S REVERSED. YEAH IT IS REVERSED. SO HE HAS ON A SHIRT IN HERE. SO YOU'D PREFER TO SEE PAT WELL. SURE.

CURIOUS. WHAT'S THE LOGIC BEHIND IT. WELL NONE OF WHICH THEY USE LET ME GO BACK TO THE FIGURES. WELL YOU KNOW IT'S AN ARTIST. THAT'S CORRECT. NONE OF THE PARTIES HAVE THE FINAL HELLO I'VE STRUGGLED IN MAKING YOU FEEL LIKE I AM. SO HERE'S A LITTLE MORE SILHOUETTE REPRESENTATION HERE. THESE ARE ALL THIS ALMOST LOOKS LIKE SANTA CLOSET FINAL. THAT'S. WELL AGAIN THAT'S THAT BUT THAT'S THAT'S THE FILM THAT'S NOT THE FINAL. SO THIS IS THE FIRST ONE. OK. YEAH. YEAH. IN MY MIND THE COLORS THAT WERE SELECTED BY THE ARTIST WERE BECAUSE OF THE HISTORICAL PERIOD MY VIDEO THE CPO IS REAL. EXACTLY. AND TO BE EXACT TO GO WITH THE EXISTING BUILDING THE COLORS OF THE THE COLORS HERE HE CHOSE IT WAS PART OF WHAT THE COMMITTEE RESPONDED TO IN THAT IT'S A DIFFERENT MURAL IT'S NOT AT MAINLAND'S PARK APPROPRIATELY EXTREMELY COLORFUL AT TCC WE WANTED IT TO GO WITH HIS IDEA OF BLENDING WITH THE BUILDING WE THOUGHT WAS A VERY GOOD IDEA OK ARE WE GOING TO BE ABLE TO SEE THIS AT I DON'T HAVE LIGHTING BUT I DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS ANY. WHAT WE DIDN'T PLAN FOR ANY APPLIED IN ON THE MURAL BUT THAT'S CERTAINLY SOMETHING WE CAN DO. I MEAN YEAH SURE SURE WE WILL LOOK. THAT'S A VERY GOOD SUGGESTION AND WE WILL LOOK INTO THAT. ALL RIGHT. ALL RIGHT SEE MY COLLEAGUES HAVE NOTHING TO SAY AND I WILL I FIND IT INTERESTING THAT DON CARTER'S HAS A SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN OUR CITY'S HISTORY TO BE PUT ON OUR WALL LIKE US IS BUILDING OUR CITY HALL. I'M TRYING TO JUST UNDERSTAND SOME OF HERE. YEAH THE YES MA'AM AND THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE A FIRE STATION 78. YES ABOVE IT. THAT'S THE ALBERT PALEY SCULPTURE WHICH IF THERE'S A WAY TO MAYBE REDUCE SOME OF THE VINES COMING DOWN TO THE TREES OR THE LEAVES MAKE IT A LITTLE MORE CLEAR AND NOT AS RUNNING INTO IT IF POSSIBLE. OR IS IT OK PLEASE. THE OUTER RIGHT EYE IS SITUATED. REMEMBER WE'RE LOOKING AT A SMALL SKETCH.

BY THE TIME THIS IS EXPANDED IT. IT'S ALTERED GREATLY IT'LL BE VERY VERY CLEAR MAN. VERY I GUESS BECAUSE I SEE A SMALL SKETCH WITH THE LEAVES ALREADY IN IT. I WAS JUST PRESUMING IF YOU NOTE TO THE VERY LEFT WHERE THE TAMARACK LOGOS ARE TWO LOGOS THERE'S A LEAF ON TOP OF THAT AS WELL. THAT'S VERY INTENTIONAL. THIS IS GOING TO BE VERY LARGE IT'S GONNA BE VERY CLEAR AND IT IS IMPORTANT TO LET THE ARTIST USE THEIR VISION. I DON'T THINK THAT THAT'S A CONCERN BUT WE WILL TELL HIM

[02:10:06]

AS LONG AS IT'S UNDERSTOOD BECAUSE AT FIRST IT JUST LOOKED LIKE AN IMMEDIATE SQUIGGLE THAT IT COULDN'T TELL. BUT IT'S CLEAR. SO WE ARE HAVING PEOPLE UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS NOT GOING. YES. YES A VERY GOOD COMMENT. AND ALSO I'M SURE THE LINES IN THE SHUFFLEBOARD WILL BE CLEAR AS WELL SO PEOPLE WILL GO SHUFFLEBOARD I NOT EXACTLY FOND OF THE COLOR. EVERYBODY KNOWS HOW I FEEL ABOUT THE COLORS AND THE BUILDING OF THE CITY BUILDINGS AND I KNOW THAT WE'VE DISCUSSED POSSIBLY CHANGING SOME OF THE COLORS OF THE CITY BUILDINGS WHICH HAS ME A LITTLE CONCERNED THEN AT THIS MAY THE COLORS BEING USED BY THE ARTISTS ACTUALLY HAVE A LITTLE MORE VIBRANCY. I'M NOT SAYING IT HAS TO BE AS COLORFUL AS MARLINS PARK WHICH I THINK IS A BEAUTIFUL VIBRANT PIECE. I'M SURE THE ART PIECE OVER AT THE SPORTS COMPLEX IS VIBRANT AND BEAUTIFUL AS WELL. HISTORY AS VIBRANT AS WELL SO JUST MAYBE THERE BEING A LITTLE BIT LESS IN IN PERSON IT WILL BE IT WILL BE VERY YOU KNOW WE'RE LOOKING AT A COMPUTER IMAGE WE'RE LOOKING AT IT WITH LIGHT IN THE ROOM. IN FACT IF YOU LOOK THERE I'VE BEEN LOOKING FROM BEHIND YOUR BACK AND IT'S MUCH MORE MUTED THAN HERE. HE WILL SUBMIT THE COLORS TO US IN ADVANCE AND HE'D LIKE TO SEE THEM WE CAN ARRANGE FOR THAT OF A GROUP. THANK YOU. THAT'S GOOD. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I WAS. NOW HAS A COMMENT. AND I LIKE IT THE WAY IT IS. OK. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. IT'S STILL ON MY SILENCE TO BE INTERPRETED AS SOMETHING NEGATIVE. NO IT WAS INTERPRETING SILENCE. BY ANY MEANS ANY LOOK ANY KIND OF STRETCH SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. TWELVE O FIVE. USUALLY AT THE TIME I AM BEING TOLD THAT WE ARE HAVING A BREAK ESPECIALLY BECAUSE WE HAVE MORE ITEMS. ARE WE GOOD TO GO. CAN WE GO THROUGH ANOTHER ROUND BEFORE WE EVER BREAK. ARE WE ALEX OR ARE YOU WITH ME CAN YOU HANDLE ANOTHER ROUND. YES I'M AM GOING TO GO GET SOME PRETZELS. WHAT ARE YOU DOING. WELL WE'RE MOVING FORWARD WE'RE

[4. TO2404 - MU-N Self Storage Code Amendment]

GOING ON 2 2 2 4 0 4. MOON EMMIE WHEN DASH N OR M DASH N SELF-STORAGE CODE AMENDMENT ITEM NUMBER 8 ON ORDERS IS FIRST READING AND A SERVICE ROSA PARKS INC. PLEASE CONTINUE. THANK YOU MADAM MAYOR. THIS ONE IS A QUICK ONE FOR YOU. WE HAVE BEEN HAVING. YEAH. YEAH. SO WE ARE DISCUSSING SELF-STORAGE AS YOU KNOW WE CURRENTLY HAVE A MORATORIUM WE HAVE BEEN HAVING SOME DISCUSSION ON THIS FOR QUITE SOME TIME IN 2017 JUST SOME BACKGROUND WE RECEIVED SOME INCREASE FROM VARIOUS PEOPLE FOR CONSTRUCTION OF SELF-STORAGE FACILITIES IN THE CITY. AND AT THAT TIME WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE USEFUL FOR US TO AMEND OUR CODE AND TO REQUIRE CERTAIN STANDARDS DESIGN STANDARDS TO MAKE SURE WE WERE GETTING THE BEST FACILITIES EVER. SO WE DID THAT BACK IN 2017 AND SUBSEQUENTLY WE APPROVED TWO APPLICATIONS ONE FOR AN EXPANSION. ONE FOR A NEW FACILITY ON MATLAB AND THEN A THIRD APPLICATION WAS FINE AND THERE WAS SOME CONCERNS THAT WE NEEDED TO LOOK AND STUDY THIS A LITTLE BIT FURTHER TO SEE WHETHER WE WOULD HAVE A PROLIFERATION OF STUFF STORAGE FACILITIES. SO WE INSTITUTED A MORATORIUM WHICH EXPIRES IN JULY WHILE THE MORATORIUM WAS ISSUED OF COURSE WE APPROVED ROCK ISLAND SELF-STORAGE WHICH WAS EXEMPT FROM THE MORATORIUM BECAUSE IT WAS PENDING AT THE TIME AND THEN NOW I'M BRINGING TO YOU AN AMENDMENT TO THE CODE TO RESOLVE THE MORATORIUM AND TO PROPOSE LOCATIONS FOR SELF-STORAGE FACILITIES GOING FORWARD. SO THIS IS OUR EXISTING CODE WHICH ALLOWS SELF-STORAGE FACILITIES IN THE EMU AND BP BUSINESS PARK AND YOUR LIGHT INDUSTRIAL. THIS IS ACTUALLY TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM YOUR LINE DEVELOPMENT CALL IT IS AS YOU CAN SEE SELF-STORAGE IS SHOWN WITH THE GREEN ARROW AND THE P MEANS PERMITTED BY RIGHT WHICH MEANS NO PUBLIC AREA AND NO SPECIAL EXCEPTION IS JUST PERMITTED BY RIGHT STRAIGHT TO BUILDING PERMITS IN THESE ZONING DISTRICTS. AND THIS IS WHAT IT TRANSLATE TO ON OUR ZONING MAP THEREFORE MEANS THESE ARE THE LOCATIONS THROUGHOUT THIS CITY THAT YOU SEE IN THAT MUSTARD COLOR WHERE YOU CAN HAVE SELF-STORAGE GO BY RIGHT. AND I THINK THE LAST TIME I GAVE THIS POWERPOINT I ASSUME WHAT THE DISTANCE OPERATION THAT WE COULD PROBABLY HAVE A TOTAL OF ELEVEN SELF-STORAGE CITYWIDE BY RIGHT IF NOT STUDIED AND ADDRESS. SO WHAT S IS BEFORE WE GET TO STAFF RECOMMENDATION. JUST A REMINDER IN TERMS OF SELF-STORAGE THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE IN THE CITY THERE ARE TWO

[02:15:02]

THAT ARE EXISTING ONE ON UNIVERSITY DRIVE AND ONE ON COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD AND THEN RECENTLY APPROVED WE HAVE A SAFE AND SECURE SELF STORAGE AS WELL AS A ROCK ISLAND SELF-STORAGE AND WE KNOW WHERE THOSE LOCATIONS WILL BE STAFF IS THEREFORE PROPOSING THAT WE AMEND THE CODE AND TO PROHIBIT SELF-STORAGE IN M YOU END ZONE INDUSTRY. THAT'S A MIXED USE NEIGHBORHOODS ON INDUSTRY TO MAINTAIN SELF STORAGE IN YOUR BP AND YOUR I WANT INDUSTRIAL. THAT'S YOUR LIGHT INDUSTRIAL. AND SO THIS MAP SHOWS YOU WHERE THOSE FUTURE SELF-STORAGE FACILITIES WOULD GO PRIMARILY IN THEIR BUSINESS PARK WHICH IS ON THE EASTERN WESTERN PORTION OF THE CITY YOU SEE IN GREEN AND THEN THERE IS A LIGHT INDUSTRIAL AREA NORTHWEST FOR THE NINTH STREET WHICH PROBABLY COULD HAVE TO ACCOMMODATE ONE AND AN OVER ON WEST PROSPECT ROAD. IN OUR LIGHT INDUSTRIAL ERA WOULD BE THE ONLY AREAS THROUGHOUT THE CITY THAT WOULD THEN PERMIT OR ALLOW SELF-STORAGE SO THE EFFECT OF THE PROPOSED LEGISLATION SIGNED TO THE NEW ORDINANCE IT WOULD ESSENTIALLY MAKE ALL OUR EXISTING AND PROPOSED SELF-STORAGE LEGALLY NONCONFORMING BECAUSE WHAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE IS PERMISSIBLE IN THEIR EMULATION. AND SO SINCE WE'RE MAKING IT PROHIBITED THEN THOSE THAT ARE EXISTING WOULD BE LEGALLY NONCONFORMING AND WE'RE ALL AWARE OF THAT PROVISION WHICH MEANS OVER TIME IF THEY WERE TO SEIZE OR NOT EXIST OVER SIX MONTHS OR SO THEN IT WOULD HAVE TO CONFORM TO THE CODE AND THEN WE WOULD STILL KEEP IN PLACE THOSE SAFEGUARDS THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE WHICH WE ADOPTED IN 2017. WE HAVE DISTANCE SEPARATION WHICH MEANS NO ONE SELF-STORAGE CAN BE CLOSER THAN TWENTY FIVE HUNDRED FEET FROM THE NEXT SO WE'D STILL MAINTAIN THOSE DISTANCE SEPARATION WOULD STILL MAINTAIN THOSE DESIGN STANDARDS THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE IN THE CODE. SO THEY LOOK VERY MUCH LIKE AN OFFICE BUILDING ACCESS TO THE STORAGE FROM THE INTERIOR NOT THE INTERIOR SO ALL THOSE DESIGN STANDARDS THAT WE ADOPTED IN 2017 WOULD STILL. WE'RE NOT PROPOSING ANY CHANGES TO THAT. THE ONLY CHANGE IS TO YOUR ALLOWED USE THIS CHART WHERE YOU CAN SEE THAT HE IS BEING STRICKEN OUT AND IT'S TRICKING OUT IN THE ORDINANCE AND SO YOURSELF STORAGE WOULD ONLY BE PERMITTED IN YOUR BP AND YOUR LIKE INDUSTRIAL AND ZONING DISTRICT. THOSE ARE THE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT HE IS MAKING. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. DO I HAVE ANY COMMENT. MICHIGAN SO I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT WE HAVE NO MORE SELF-STORAGE FACILITIES IN THE CITY. TAMARA. WE'RE ONLY 12 SQUARE MILES.

WE ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH. WE ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH SURROUNDING THE CITY IN NORTH FLORIDA ALL IN LAUDER HILL IS ONE OF MY REQUESTS FREE FROM THE TAMARACK LIBRARY THAT WE HAVE ENOUGH STORAGE FACILITIES AND WE JUST SHOULDN'T HAVE ANY MORE IN THE CITY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR OPINION NEXT. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY. SEE MY COLLEAGUES DO NOT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH MOVING RIGHT ALONG TO T.O. 2 4 0 5 HUMAN

[5. TO2405 - Human Trafficking Public Awareness Signs Ordinance]

TRAFFICKING PUBLIC AWARENESS SIGNS ORDINANCE. ITEM NUMBER HB ON FIRST ORDINANCES ON FIRST READING. MAXINE YOU'RE SITTING WITH US. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

PLEASE PROCEED. SO YOUR APRIL 22ND WORKSHOP MEETING WE HAD A DISCUSSION ON HOW WE CAN CREATE A NO TRAFFIC IN CITY AND AT THE TIME WE IDENTIFY THAT WE WOULD NEED TO MAKE AN AMENDMENT TO THE CODE SPECIFICALLY IF WE WANTED TO POSE WHAT WE CALL PUBLIC AWARENESS SIGNS AT CERTAIN ESTABLISHMENTS THROUGHOUT THE CITY. SO WHAT'S BEING PROPOSED IS AN AMENDMENT TO OUR SIGN REGULATIONS SPECIFICALLY SO WE CAN POST CERTAIN HUMAN TRAFFIC IN PUBLIC AWARENESS SIGNS AT CERTAIN ESTABLISHMENTS THROUGHOUT THE CITY. SPECIFICALLY WE ARE AMENDING OUR SIGN REGULATIONS SECTION AND THE SECTION IS IN BOLD TEN DASH FOUR OR IN 10 DAYS 3 AM WHERE WE ARE CREATING A NEW PROVISION THAT WOULD BE ENTITLED HUMAN TRAFFICKING PUBLIC AWARENESS SIGNS AND FOR A STRIP CLUB OR ADULT ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESSES FROM ASADA ESTABLISHMENTS AND FOR HOTELS. THE PROPOSED LEGISLATION IS REQUIRING THE POSTING OF A SIGN THE SIGN WILL BE AT LEAST EIGHT AND A HALF INCHES BY ELEVEN INCHES IN SIZE THE PRINT OR THE FONT HAS TO BE SIXTEEN POINT TYPE AND IT HAS TO BE IN THREE LANGUAGES IN MANDARIN SPANISH AND ENGLISH. IT MUST BE POSTED IN A CONSPICUOUS LOCATION CLEARLY VISIBLE TO THE PUBLIC AND WHERE EMPLOYEES CAN SEE MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC CAN SEE AS WELL. AND THIS IS AN ENTIRE SLIDE DEDICATED TO THE VERBIAGE THAT NEEDS TO BE IN DESIGN ITSELF. SO THIS IS WHAT THE SIGN WILL READ IN THREE LANGUAGES. AND IN TERMS OF EFFECT OF THE ORDINANCE OF THE ORDINANCE WOULD BE EFFECTIVE UPON ADAPT ADOPTION STAFF IS PROPOSING THAT WE DO SOME EDUCATION AND SOME COURTESY NOTICE FOR A PERIOD OF A MONTH OR TWO. WE ONLY HAVE SIX HOTELS THAT ARE REGISTERED IN THE CITY. THREE MASSAGE PARLORS SO WE CAN GET OUT AND PROVIDE SOME EDUCATION SOME FLYERS IN TERMS OF THE

[02:20:01]

POSTING THAT IS GOING TO BE REQUIRED AND THEN AFTER THAT OF COURSE WE CAN START RIGHT IN VIOLATIONS IF THERE IS ANY PROBLEMS OR PEOPLE ARE NOT COMPLYING. SO THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. FISHMAN I'M LOOKING AT THE NUMBERS. YEAH. FORGIVE ME BUT DON'T WE HAVE THE TRAPPINGS ESTABLISHMENT WE DO.

BUT IT IS NOT REGISTERED AS AN ADULT ENTERTAINMENT. IT'S A PRIVATE CLUB. THAT'S THE CATEGORY UNDER WHICH IT'S ESTABLISHED WOULD WE BE ABLE TO INCLUDE IT IN THE WHEREAS CLAUSES THAT I SENT YOU EARLIER TODAYAS A SEXUALLY ORIENTED BUSINESS NEED TO GO BACK AND JUST LOOK AT THE DEFINITION OF INTERACTIVE MAP TO SEE IF IT FALLS WITHIN THAT. BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO ENSURE THAT SIGNAGE IS IN THAT ESTABLISHMENT AS WELL. WE'LL GO BACK AND CHECK THE DEFINITION TO SEE IF IT FALLS WITHIN THAT. AND WE ONLY HAVE THREE MASSAGE SHOPS FOUND BUSHMAN THAT THIS WOULD INCLUDE. RIGHT. SO WE HAVE SOME THAT ARE LISTED ON YOUR DOCTOR'S OFFICE. I THINK I'D SEND YOU A LIST THAT INCLUDED LIKE ELEVEN I THINK EIGHT OF WHICH ARE ASSOCIATED WITH PHYSICIAN OR A DOCTOR'S OFFICE AND SO YOUR ACTUAL MASSAGE PARLOR OR SPA IS SEPARATED. WE HAVE IT IN TERMS OF CLASSIFICATION UNDER TWO SEPARATE CLASSIFICATIONS FOR ACTUAL MASSAGE PARLORS. AS WE KNOW IT IS THREE AND THEN YOU HAVE MASSAGE AS A USE THAT'S LISTED IN OUR DOCTOR'S OFFICE WHICH IS SEPARATE.

AGAIN IF WE'RE A MASSAGE THERAPIST THAT IS COVERED UNDER STATUTE FOR EIGHTY I BELIEVE IT IS IS DIFFERENT THAN A MASSAGE PARLOR IF WE ARE LOOKING AT THOSE THAT ARE REGULATED BY THE STATE AS OPPOSED TO THOSE THAT ARE NOT REGULATED BY THE STATE. DOES THAT NUMBER CHANGE. I DON'T BELIEVE SO BUT I CAN GO BACK AND BE THE EIGHT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH PHYSICIANS WITH DOCTORS. IF YOU COULD VERIFY THAT AND LET US KNOW BY WEDNESDAY SO THAT WE KNOW ABSOLUTELY ABSOLUTELY WHAT WE'RE COVERING. THANK YOU I MEAN IF I CAN BRIEFLY WE'VE BEEN WORKING WITH COMMISSIONER FISHMAN ON SOME SOME REVISED LANGUAGE OR THIS ORDINANCE WHICH WE HAVE COMPLETED AS OF THIS MORNING THE TITLE TO THE ORDINANCE WILL NOT CHANGE. THE BODY WILL BE SOMEWHAT TWEAKED SOME ADDITIONAL LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS GIVEN THE ADDITIONAL RESEARCH PERFORMED BY COMMISSIONER FISHMAN. THE DOCUMENT THAT YOU WILL HAVE BEFORE YOU ON WEDNESDAY FOR FIRST READING WILL BE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT. WE WE'RE GOING TO SUBSTITUTE THIS DRAFT FOR THE ONE THAT'S IN THE BACKUP. IT IS NOT IT IS NOT MATERIALLY OR SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT. WE SIMPLY ADDED SOME FINDINGS THAT WE THINK WILL BOLSTER THE LEGAL SUPPORT FOR THE OBLIGATIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THOSE WHO ARE OBLIGATED AND RESPONSIBLE FOR POSTING AND FOR ENFORCING AS WELL AS THE CITY. AND IT MADE SOME JUST JUXTAPOSED CHANGES WITHIN THE BODY. SO WHAT YOU WILL SEE ON THE DAY IS ON WEDNESDAY EVENING OR BEFORE WE REVISED DOCUMENT WHICH IS AGAIN A NEW DOCUMENT BUT WITH SOME MINOR ALTHOUGH LEGALLY AND OPERATIONALLY SUPPORTABLE LANGUAGE WE'LL GET THAT TO YOU PROBABLY TODAY. MAXINE WE CAN TAKE A LOOK AT IT BECAUSE IT'S THIS IS DONE IN WORD FORMAT AND WE WORKED ON IT LITERALLY OVER THE WEEKEND. YESTERDAY I MAY SAY SO. SO THE TITLE DOES NOT CHANGE. SO THERE'S NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN THE DESTINATION OF THE ORDINANCES SIMPLY TWEAKS SOME OF THE LANGUAGE THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY PREPARED. IT DOES FOLLOW THE PASCO COUNTY AUDIENCE IN THE BROWARD COUNTY AUDIENCE THAT DO EXIST AND HAVE EXISTED FOR SOME TIME. WITH ALL DUE RESPECT ALL OF US IN THE ROOM IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE IN THE CONTEXT OF BEING A NEW DOCUMENT WITH NEW MATERIALS. IT IS A REVISION AND A CLARIFICATION OF WHAT'S IMPORTANT FOR THIS CITY AND THIS LOCATION FOR OUR TIME. THANK YOU SAM IF THERE ARE NO OTHER QUESTIONS ON THIS ONE. I JUST WANT TO ASK WHEN YOU COME BACK ALONG THE LINES OF WHAT WAS BROUGHT UP WHAT DOES PRIVATE CLUB MEAN AND WHAT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY TO THE CITY HAVE IF YOU'RE A PRIVATE CLUB. BECAUSE EVEN IF YOU'RE A PRIVATE CLUB THERE MIGHT BE SOME RULES AND POSTINGS THAT WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO INCLUDE. AND I THINK WE HAVE A COUPLE OF OTHER LOCATIONS IN OUR CITIES THAT ARE

[02:25:02]

PRIVATE CLUBS IF WE CAN LOOK INTO THAT PLACE FOR WEDNESDAY AS WELL. THANK YOU.

AND AT THIS NOTE IT IS 12:00 18 SO LET'S JUST SAY 12:00 20 WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A 45 MINUTE BREAK. LET'S SAY YOU WERE APPROXIMATELY LET'S ALL BE BACK HERE AT 1 O'CLOCK PLEASE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WELCOME BACK TO PART TWO. WE'RE UP TO ITEM

[6. Medical Marijuana Discussion]

NUMBER SIX MEDICAL MARIJUANA DISCUSSION COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR MAXINE CALLOWAY AND ASSISTANT CITY ATTORNEY BRIAN SHERMAN PRESENTING. THANK YOU MAYOR.

MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION I BROUGHT WITH ME BRIAN WHO HAS ALL THE ANSWERS TO ALL YOUR QUESTIONS THIS AFTERNOON BUT NO SANDY PLEASURE. SO FOR DISCUSSION PURPOSES WHAT WE WILL BE SEEKING IS CONSENSUS AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THE CITY COMMISSION IS DESIROUS TO INSTRUCT STAFF TO GO BACK AND BRING FORWARD LEGISLATION TO PERMIT OR NOT PERMIT DISPENSARY FACILITIES AND JUST TO GIVE YOU SOME BACKGROUND AND WHAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING SINCE 2016 WHEN OVERWHELMINGLY THE STATE OF FLORIDA VOTERS APPROVED MEDICAL MARIJUANA. WE HAVE BEEN HAVING THIS DISCUSSION AND BACK IN 2016 WE UNDERSTOOD THAT WE ARE ALLOW TO LIMITED IN A LIMITED WAY REGULATE DISPENSARIES THAT'S THE JUST THE THOUGHT RETAIL COMPONENT OF THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA IS JUST WHAT IS SOLD TO THE CLIENTS OR THE PATIENTS WHO HAVE A PRESCRIPTION. AND SO DURING THAT TIME WE DECIDED THAT THE INFORMATION WAS JUST TOO NEW AND WE INSTITUTED A MORATORIUM SO WE CAN STUDY IT AND LOOK AT IT FURTHER. AND WE CONTINUE TO STUDY IT BECAUSE WE ALSO LOOKED AT OTHER CITIES WHO ALSO INSTITUTED MORATORIUMS OR HAD A BAD. AND SO WE EXTENDED OUR MORATORIUM THREE TIMES BECAUSE INFORMATION WAS STILL JUST NOT ENOUGH. AT THE TIME AND SO BACK IN JUNE 13 2018 WE DECIDED TO JUST DO A BATTLE TO PROHIBIT IT WHICH WE THEN RATIFIED WHEN WE ADOPTED OUR CITY CODE BACK IN JULY 2018.

AND AT THE TIME WE DID THAT WE WANTED TO RESERVE THE RIGHT TO COME BACK AND TO LOOK AT THIS AGAIN AND TO SEE WHETHER IT WOULD BE USEFUL. AFTER MORE INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE TO ALLOW DISPENSARIES IN THE CITY. AND SO THAT'S WHAT WE'RE DOING NOW.

SO THROUGH THE CITY MANAGER'S OFFICE BACK IN APRIL WE CONDUCTED A SURVEY ON THE WEB SITE AND WE ASKED PEOPLE WHETHER OR NOT THEY WANTED TO SEE DISPENSARIES THROUGHOUT THE CITY. AND IF YOU LOOK AT THIS SLIDE THERE REGISTERED SURVEY RESPONDERS ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY WHO REGISTERED AND PARTICIPATED IN THE SURVEY AND OUT OF THE 140 89 PERCENT OR 125 VOTED TO SEE OR COMMENTED ON WANTING DISPENSARIES THROUGHOUT THE CITY AND JUST SO TO TO CLARIFY AND JUST TO CALL A DISTINCTION BETWEEN A MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CENTERS AND BRIAN WILL SPEAK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT. WE CANNOT REGULATE THE TREATMENT CENTERS. THOSE ARE THE GROWERS ALTHOUGH THEY'RE ALSO ALLOWED TO DISPENSE BUT THOSE ARE THE GROWERS THE MANUFACTURER THAT PROCESS MEDICAL MARIJUANA. WE ARE PREEMPTED BY THE STATE SO WE CANNOT REGULATE BUT ON THE BOTTOM OF THE SLIDE I'VE INCLUDED THERE IS SOME SAFEGUARDS THAT ARE IN THE STATUTE THAT YOU KNOW PUT IN PUTS IN SOME PROTECTION FOR MUNICIPALITIES SOME DISTANCE SEPARATION FROM SCHOOL FROM MIDDLE AND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND FROM SCHOOLS ELEMENTARY MIDDLE AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN THAT JURISDICTION. SO BRIAN WILL SPEAK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CENTER REGULATION AND THEN I'LL COME BACK AND TALK ABOUT WHAT'S CONTAINED IN OUR CURRENT CODE. THANK YOU. THANK YOU MISS CALIFORNIA MADAM MAYOR COMMISSIONERS. SO AS FAR AS THE REGULATION IT'S WIDELY KNOWN THAT IT'S EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT YOU CAN ONLY REGULATE IT LIKE PHARMACIES. WHAT DOES THAT REALLY MEAN. SO THE WHAT THE CITIES CAN DO AND IT'S PROVIDED BY STATUTE IS EITHER BAN WHICH IS WHAT YOU HAVE DONE OR ONCE YOU OPEN IT UP THEN IT'S GOING TO BE ONLY REGULATED HOW YOU DO HOW PHARMACIES ARE REGULATED. THERE'S ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE IN THE STATUTE THAT TALKS ABOUT DIFFERENT CRITERIA FOR THE LOCATION BUT IT CANNOT CONFLICT WITH OTHER STATE REGULATIONS OR STATE LAW PROVIDED AND WE'LL GO THROUGH IT IN THE STATUTE TALKS A LOT ABOUT THE SECURITY REQUIREMENTS BACKGROUND REQUIREMENTS.

HOURS OF OPERATION INCLUDED ONE 8 HOURS OF OPERATION ARE REGULATED BUT ALSO EVEN THOUGH THE DISPENSARY WOULDN'T BE OPEN FOR REGULAR PUBLIC THEY'RE ACTUALLY ALLOWED TO RUN A 24 HOUR OPERATION SO DELIVERIES OR PREPARATION OF DIFFERENT ORDERS MAY ALL BE DONE WITHIN THE DISPENSARY. DURING THOSE PARTICULAR TIMEFRAMES THOSE ARE ALL REGULATED BY STATUTE. SO ANYTHING THE CITY DOES WANT TO BE ABLE TO COULD NOT CONFLICT WITH THE STATE STATUTE. A LOT OF DISCUSSION GOES OVER WHAT IS A MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CENTER INSTEAD OF CENTER YOU CAN ALMOST CALL IT BASICALLY A COMPANY. THE REASON WHY IT'S CALLED MTC FOR THAT IS BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT'S IN THE

[02:30:02]

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. BUT THE COMPANIES THEMSELVES OWN THE ENTIRE PROCESS WHAT'S CALLED FROM SEED TO SALE. SO FROM THE VERY BEGINNING FROM CULTIVATION EVERYTHING BUT FOR INDEPENDENT LABORATORY TESTING THROUGH DEVELOPMENT OF THE PRODUCTS THE PACKAGING OF THE PRODUCTS AND THE DISPENSING OF THE PRODUCTS ARE OWNED BY ONE SINGLE COMPANY RIGHT NOW AND WE HAVE THE LIST LATER IN THE PRESENTATION. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF MMT SEES THAT ARE CURRENTLY OPERATING IN DISPENSING. THERE'S A NUMBER OF OTHER MMT SEES THAT HAVE BEEN APPROVED BUT ARE NOT CURRENTLY DISPENSING BUT WILL COME ONLINE IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS AS THEIR PRODUCT MATURES AND THEY MOVE FORWARD. ALSO SOME ADDITIONAL RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IS IN THE STATUTE EACH M MTC WAS ABLE TO GET UP TO 25 INITIALLY AND THEN THAT NUMBER GREW AS FAR AS NUMBER OF DISPENSARIES UPWARDS IT'S THIRTY FIVE NOW BASED ON THE NUMBER OF PATIENTS THAT ARE REGISTERED WHILE THROUGH SOME RECENT LAWSUITS. THAT NUMBER IS GOING TO WHAT'S IN THE STATUTE THAT IT'S GOING TO EXPIRE. THAT PROVISION IN APRIL OF 2020 AND IT'S ANTICIPATED THERE'S GOING TO BE NO CAP IN ACCORDANCE WITH ACTUALLY THE COURT CASE THAT JUST CAME OUT BETWEEN THE STATE OF FLORIDA AND TRULY WHICH IS ONE OF THE COMPANY PROVIDERS THEY CAME UP WITH A DEAL WHERE THEY'RE ALLOWED TRULY WOULD BE ALLOWED TO KEEP ALL THE DISPENSARIES THEY HAVE AND THOSE NUMBERS WOULD NOT COUNT TOWARDS THE CAP. THE CAP WAS RULED UNCONSTITUTIONAL BUT IT IS GOING TO SUNSET IN THESE IN THE STATE STATUTE BY APRIL OF NEXT YEAR. THERE'S ALSO A A FORMULA ON WHERE DISPENSARIES ARE SUPPOSED TO GO THROUGHOUT THE STATE TO MAKE SURE THAT THE ENTIRE STATE IS GOING TO BE SERVICED BY THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES SO HERE ARE SOME OF THE STATE REQUIREMENTS THAT THAT ANY TYPE OF REGULATION WOULD BE A CANNOT CONFLICT WITH AS FAR AS OUTDOOR LIGHTING AS FAR AS VIDEO SURVEILLANCE IN THERE. ALSO WE HAVE A SLIDE LATER THAT TALKS ABOUT THE STATUE GOES INTO THE PACKAGING IT GOES INTO ADVERTISEMENTS WHAT THEY CAN ACTUALLY HAVE ON THE STORE FRONT WHAT THEY CAN ACTUALLY ADVERTISE ONLINE THAT THE FACT THAT PRICES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE STRENGTH OF THE PRODUCT SUPPOSED TO BE THERE AND THE REASON WHY WE PRESENT THIS TO YOU SO THAT PRESENT THE INFORMATION THAT ANY REGULATION IF THE CITY CHOOSES TO ALLOW DISPENSARIES COULD NOT CONFLICT WITH THESE EXPANSIVE REGULATIONS. SO ESSENTIALLY WOULD ONLY BE AS FAR AS THE LOCATION WHERE THEY WOULD GO AND AGAIN NOT WITHIN 500 FEET OF SCHOOLS UNLESS THERE IS A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE MATTER. OR IT WOULD BE AGAIN NOT ALL BUT AND THE SAME AS PHARMACIES. PLEASE ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT ANY TYPE OF FEES OR WOULD ALSO BE THE SAME FEES THAT YOU CHARGE TO PHARMACIES AND A LOT OF QUESTIONS THAT I'VE GOTTEN AT DIFFERENT PRESENTATIONS TALK ABOUT WELL WHAT ABOUT ALL THE MONEY THAT'S COMING IN. WELL THESE ORDERS AND IT'S NOT A PRESCRIPTION IT'S AN ORDER FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA IS TAX FREE. IT'S CONSIDERED MEDICINE. SO THERE IS NOT A TAX REVENUE COMING THROUGH ON THESE ITEMS AND THE FEES THAT ARE PAID ARE PAID TO THE STATE. THERE IS AN EXEMPTION WITHIN THE CODE WITHIN THE PART OF THE STATE STATUTE THAT SAYS AS FAR AS FIRE CODE AND BUILDING CODES MUST BE COMPLIED WITH AS WELL. MOST CITIES CAN ENFORCE THE BUILDING CODE AND FIRE CODE TO THE EXTENT THAT APPLIES TO THE DISPENSARIES. SO HERE'S MORE OF THE OF THE REGULATIONS. AND THIS IS THE REASON WHY WE HIGHLIGHTED IS BECAUSE IT'S ACTUALLY NOT INCLUDED IN THE PREEMPTION PORTION OF OF THE STATUTE. BUT IN THE OTHER REGULATORY PORTIONS OF THE STATUTE WE WANT TO HIGHLIGHT THAT TOO WHERE A LOT OF PEOPLE FOCUS ON ONE PARTICULAR SECTION YOU HAVE TO ACTUALLY LOOK AT THE ENTIRE STATUTE ALTOGETHER AND THE REGULATIONS AND OF COURSE THE REGULATIONS ARE CHANGING AS YOU MOVE FORWARD. AS FAR AS I AS MORE COMPANIES GET LICENSES AS MOVING ON AS FAR AS AS THE WHOLE INDUSTRY MATURES AT THIS POINT SO THE TOP OF THE STATE REGULATIONS TRANSPORTATION REGARDLESS OF THE COMMISSION'S DESIRE TO EITHER OPEN UP THE CITY AS FAR AS ALLOWING DISPENSARIES OR MAINTAIN THE BAN. LET'S BE CLEAR THAT THE PRODUCT FOR THE PATIENTS WITHIN THE CITY IS AVAILABLE WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO OTHER DISPENSARIES THROUGHOUT THE STATE OR ACTUALLY HAVING THE PRODUCT DELIVERED TO THEM AS WELL. THAT'S ALWAYS AN OPTION. AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AS FAR AS THE THE ASPECT OF HOW A PATIENT WOULD EITHER GET THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA OR AS FAR AS WHAT THEY CAN DO AS FAR AS POSSESSION AGAIN THAT'S ALL REGULATED IN STATUTE

[02:35:03]

DOESN'T NECESSARILY PERTAIN TO THE ACTUAL REGULATION OF DISPENSARIES. BUT THE STATUTE DOES PROVIDE FOR HOW PATIENTS CAREGIVERS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT REGULATE THE INDUSTRY. ANOTHER IMPORTANT POINT AS FAR AS THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA AS WE KNOW THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT 88 C PRODUCTS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A EUPHORIC PRODUCT WITHIN THE PARAMETERS THAT YOU'RE GIVEN THE ORDER FROM THE DOCTOR. IT'S NOT A PRESCRIPTION BECAUSE WE STILL HAVE TO BE COGNIZANT THAT MARIJUANA AND ITS USE EVEN MEDICAL MARIJUANA IS STILL ILLEGAL UNDER FEDERAL LAW. SO AS FAR AS THE DISPENSARIES THESE ARE GENERALLY CASH INDUSTRIES BECAUSE ANYTHING THAT MOVES IN INTERSTATE COMMERCE IS GOOD IT MUST ABIDE BY FEDERAL LAW WHICH IS GENERALLY WHY YOU DON'T HAVE CREDIT CARD COMPANIES AND BANKING INSTITUTIONS PARTICIPATE IN THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA INDUSTRY. OTHER STATES SUCH AS COLORADO AND CALIFORNIA HAVE DEVELOPED KIND OF NICHE MARKETS REGARDING THE ACTUAL BANKING AND THE MONEY TRANSACTION OF THAT. SO THERE'S A LOT OF DIFFERENT ASPECTS TO THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA BUT AS FAR AS THE REGULATION WE WANT TO PRESENT THIS TEAM THIS IS JUST SOME DATA WE JUST WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU AND BRIAN MENTIONED THAT THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CENTERS WHICH IS THE M.A. SEES A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF LICENSE THAT'S GIVEN TO THEM THEY ARE ALLOWED TO THEN GIVE OUT A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF LICENSE UP TO 25 OR EVEN MORE FOR DISPENSING DISPENSARIES WHICH CAN BE LOCATED THROUGHOUT MUNICIPALITIES. AND SO THIS IS THE LAST DATA WE GOT FROM THE STATE WEBSITE. THIS IS JUST TO SHOW HOW THE BUSINESS IS GROWING. THAT SHOWED 88 APPROVED DISPENSING LOCATIONS THROUGH THE MTC. THESE ARE THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CENTERS AND THEN THE ACTUAL DISPENSARIES WHICH IS A RETAIL COMPONENT WHICH IS WHAT WE ARE LOOKING TO DISCUSS FURTHER. ONE HUNDRED AND NINETEEN AS OF APRIL 25TH THAT IS THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF FLORIDA. SO JUST SOME CASE LAW THAT WE NEED TO BE AWARE OF. BRIAN WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT BEFORE WE GO INTO WHAT THE CODE CURRENTLY PROVIDES. THIS IS A BRAND NEW CASE THAT'S CURRENTLY BEING LITIGATED IN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY. BASICALLY IN THIS SITUATION THERE WAS A 300 FOOT DISTANCE REQUIREMENT BETWEEN TWO DISPENSARIES AND THE CITY COMMISSION THERE CHANGE IT TO A TWELVE HUNDRED FOOT DISTANCE REQUIREMENT WHICH WAS BEING ARGUED BY MADMEN WHICH IS ONE OF THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CENTERS THAT ESSENTIALLY LIMITS ALL OF THE LIMITS THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF DISPENSARIES IN THE CITY TO AROUND 7. AND SO THEY'RE ARGUING THAT THAT IS A SPECIFIC LIMIT ON MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CENTERS WHICH CANNOT BE ALLOWED BEFORE AGAIN. WE TALKED ABOUT THE TRULY A CASE THAT WAS UP THERE AS FAR AS THE NUMBER OF DISPENSARIES. SO THAT'S THOSE SPECIFIC LIMITS ARE. IT'S VERY BROAD IN THE STATUTE. THE LEGISLATURE HAS CHOSEN AT THIS POINT NOT TO PROVIDE ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION OR DIRECTION AS TO THE INTERPRETATION OF THAT LANGUAGE YOU WOULD FIND AS IN YOUR BACKUP MATERIAL.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF OTHER CITIES THAT HAVE PUT IN DIFFERENT TYPES OF REGULATIONS AS OF TODAY. IT'S OUR UNDERSTANDING THAT THOSE HAVE NOT BEEN CHALLENGED AND I THINK THAT'S AS FAR AS WHERE. WHY SOME CITIES HAVE DONE CERTAIN DIFFERENT PRACTICES AS TO WHAT THEY CHOOSE TO ALLOW AND HOW THEY CHOOSE TO ALLOW IT. IT REALLY ALSO MATTERS ON THE DISPENSARIES AS THEY COME THROUGH IF THEY WANT TO PUT ONE THERE IF THEY'RE WILLING TO SPEND THE TIME EFFORT TO CHALLENGE THOSE ORDINANCES AND MOVE THROUGH THE LEGAL PROCESS AS TO THAT ESPECIALLY AS WE HAVE AS YOU SAW A NUMBER OF DISPENSING MMT SEES AND THERE'S TWENTY TWO TOTAL RIGHT NOW WITH MORE APPLICATIONS OF COURSE GROWING EVERY YEAR. SO THIS IS JUST A SNAPSHOT A SHARP SNAPSHOT SHOT OF OUR EXISTING COURT. I'M SORRY TO SEE YOU HAVE A MEDICAL MARIJUANA DISPENSARY THAT'S LISTED AND WE WENT AHEAD AND INCLUDED IT AS A PART OF THE CODE REWRITE ON JULY 2018 BECAUSE WE KNOW IT HAS BEEN A LONG GOING DISCUSSION AND WE WANTED TO COME BACK AND TO RECONSIDER THIS AND SOMETIMES AS YOU CAN SEE IT'S NOT POPULATED ACROSS THE BOARD SAID THAT ESSENTIALLY MEANS IT'S NOT PERMITTED AND THIS DISCUSSION OF COURSE IS WHETHER WE WANT TO SEE THAT POPULATED WITH A P OR NOT ABOVE THE CHART IS THE 16 PHARMACIES THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE IN THE CITY. AND AS MENTIONED BEFORE THERE'S CASE LAW SHOWING THAT MIAMI BEACH IS CURRENTLY BEING CHALLENGED BECAUSE OF DISTANCE SEPARATION THAT THEY HAVE PUT INTO THEIR LEGISLATION. THERE IS CURRENTLY NO DISTANCE SEPARATION AS IT RELATES TO OUR PHARMACIES. THERE ARE 16 PHARMACIES THAT ARE THROUGHOUT THE CITY PERMITTED IN OUR VIEW WHEN ZONING DESIGNATION SO ALL OUR RETAILS AT DESIGNATION CURRENTLY ALLOW PHARMACIES WHICH MEANS IF WE ALLOW

[02:40:01]

DISPENSARIES IT WOULD THEN BE IN ALL THE ZONING DESIGNATIONS THAT CURRENTLY ALLOW PHARMACIES WHICH IS ALL OUR RETAIL YOUR AND YOU AND YOUR M YOU G AND YOUR M YOU SEE DESIGNATION WITH NO DISTANCE SEPARATION IN ADDITION TO THAT PHARMACIES ARE ALLOWED BY RIGHT. THERE IS NO PUBLIC HEARING PROCESS IS NOT A SPECIAL EXCEPTION. AND SO I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU THE FEES THAT WE CURRENTLY ASSESS PHARMACIES WHEN THEY COME IN AND IT'S BASED ON A SQUARE FOOTAGE AND SQUARE FOOTAGE BASIS AND RETAIL STOCK INVENTORY THAT THEY HAVE AND YOU CAN SEE THE FEES RANGE FROM 180 650 AT YOUR LOWEST TO A LITTLE BIT OVER A THOUSAND. I DON'T BELIEVE THAT WOULD HAVE A DISPENSARY OVER 200000 SQUARE FEET WITH INVENTORY AND THAT'S JUST TO SHOW YOU THE FEES THAT WE CURRENTLY ASSESS PHARMACIES SO AS FAR AS THE UPDATE THERE WAS THIS IS THE THE CHANGES ALLOWING SMOKE OF MARIJUANA WHICH SO A MIRACLE MEDICAL MARIJUANA EXCUSE ME IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA. SO IT EXPANDED THE DEFINITION OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA DELIVERY DEVICES BASICALLY TO INCLUDE DIFFERENT FORMS OF SMOKING GENERALLY YOU WERE ONLY ABLE TO USE APPROVE MTC DEVICES WHICH WERE LABELED ACCORDINGLY AND PACKAGED ACCORDINGLY. NOW AS FAR AS THE VOCAL MARYLAND MEDICAL MARIJUANA YOU'RE NOT LIMITED TO THAT FOR OTHER TYPES OF DISPENSING DEVICES YOU ARE SUCH AS VAPING AND OTHERS AS WELL AS THE LIMITS THE AMOUNT OF THE SMOKER WILL. MEDICAL MARIJUANA. SAME WAY THAT IT ACTUALLY REGULATES THE AMOUNTS FOR ANY PATIENT GIVEN ANY TYPE OF MARIJUANA WHETHER IT BE IN AN OIL 18 SURE A VAPE OR AN EDIBLE TYPE OF FORM THAT ALSO ADDRESSES PACKAGING TO DETER CHILDREN. THE ORIGINAL STATUTE DID HAVE SAFEGUARDS IN THERE. THEY WERE EXPANDED WHEREAS ALL EDIBLES SHOULD BE KEPT IN THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING AS WELL AS CLEARLY LABELED INCLUDING ALSO THE NAME OF THE PATIENT ON THERE. AND THEN SUPPOSEDLY IN A PACKAGING THAT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE ENTICING TO CHILDREN. WE WANTED TO BRING YOUR ATTENTION TO SENATE BILL ONE 10 20 HERE. THIS IS ACTUALLY A STATE HEMP PROGRAM. THIS IS ENROLLED WHICH MEANS IT'S BEING SENT TO THE GOVERNOR AND IS NOT YET SIGNED. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL BE BUT WE WANTED TO BRING YOUR ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT PART OF THIS AND THERE'S ACTUALLY GOING TO BE MEETINGS WITH LOCAL GOVERNMENT ATTORNEYS AND AS THIS BILL MOVES FORWARD BASICALLY CREATING A CBD A CANNABIS ALL INDUSTRY UP THROUGH THE PROCESSING OF HEMP IT WOULD THEN ALSO ISSUE LICENSES. IT WOULD ALSO THE PLAN MUST BE APPROVED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AS WELL AND THE CULTIVATED BATCHES ARE SHALL CONTAIN LESS THAN POINT THREE PERCENT THC. SO THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING. BUT THE BILL HAS BEEN PASSED BOTH HOUSES AND IS MOVING TO THE GOVERNOR FOR CONSIDERATION HIS SIGNATURE. SO THIS IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT'S GOING TO BE COMING DOWN THE ROAD. THIS IS SEPARATE AND APART FROM THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA AS WE'RE DISCUSSING IN HERE TODAY. BUT RIGHT NOW THE ENABLING LAWS THIS WOULD BE THE ENABLING LEGISLATION AND AS WELL IT PROVIDES FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH TO GO AND ISSUE ADDITIONAL RULES AND REGULATIONS. SO WE'LL HAVE TO SEE HOW THAT INDUSTRY EVOLVES ONES IF AND ONCE THIS BILL IS PASSED INTO LAW ALL RIGHT. SO JUST TO END THE DISCUSSION WE JUST WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU OR UPDATED POLL OF MOST OF THE MUNICIPALITIES IN BROWARD COUNTY AND THE LAST TIME YOU SAW THIS WE HAD QUITE A BIT OF BAN AND MORATORIUM. BACK IN 2016 2017 WE UPDATED THIS LAST WEEK AND AS YOU CAN SEE ABOUT 15 MUNICIPALITIES IN BROWARD COUNTY HAVE SOME TYPE OF REGULATION ON THEIR BOOKS WHERE THEY ARE ALLOWING DISPENSARIES IN THE CITY CONSISTENT WITH THEIR REGULATIONS FOR PHARMACY. SO AS BRIAN MENTIONED CURRENTLY YOUR CONSTITUENTS ARE ABLE TO GET MEDICAL MARIJUANA IF THEY WOULD LIKE BECAUSE THE DISPENSARY YOUR MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CENTERS ARE ABLE TO DISPENSE.

THERE IS A WAY THAT THEY CAN ACCESS ACCESS OR FILL THEIR PRESCRIPTION. HOWEVER IF IT'S A DESIRE IF THE CITY COMMISSION TO ACTUALLY HAVE DISPENSARIES THROUGHOUT THE CITY REGULATED CONSISTENT WITH PHARMACIES THEN WE WANT TO HAVE THAT DISCUSSION AND GET SOME DIRECTION FROM YOU AS TO WHAT DIRECTION YOU'D LIKE STAFF TO TAKE. WITH RESPECT TO THAT THANK YOU VERY MUCH COMMERCIAL FISHERMEN. I HAVE A LEAD ON THAT. THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION. IS THERE ANYTHING ACCORDING TO STATE STATUTE IF WE CHOSE TO CHANGE OUR REGULATION ON PHARMACIES IN PREPARATION FOR ALLOWING

[02:45:11]

MEDICAL MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES WOULD THAT BE SOMETHING THAT WE COULD DO AS WITH ANYTHING. THE ANSWER IS GOING TO BE IT DEPENDS. THERE'S A LOT OF CITIES HAVE TAKEN THAT APPROACH AND CHANGE THE REGULATION AS TO ALL BUT WHEN IT GOES SO FAR WHERE SOME OF THE ARGUMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE BY THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES AND THE TREATMENT CENTERS IS THAT WHILE YOU'RE CHANGING THIS REGULATION SPECIFICALLY TO ALLOW TO REGULATE THE MMT SEASON NOT PHARMACIES THAT YOUR INTENTION ESSENTIALLY WASN'T PURE IT IT'S NOT TO. WELL THERE WAS ONE CITY REMEMBER WHICH ONE IT WAS BUT THERE WAS AN ISSUE WHERE THEY SAID ALL THE PHARMACIES COULD STAY AND REDEVELOP EXACTLY WHERE THEY ARE ON A GO FORWARD BASIS CONSIDERING THAT THIS WAS A I BELIEVE IT WAS A SMALLER CITY. THERE WAS ISSUE AND THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CENTERS TOOK EXCEPTION TO THAT SAYING THAT YOU DESIGNED THIS SPECIFICALLY TO REGULATE US. THEREFORE NOW CONFLICTING WITH THE STATE STATUTE. I ASKED FOR THIS TO BE BROUGHT UP BECAUSE WHEN WE ORIGINALLY WERE DISCUSSING THIS YOU'RE RIGHT THERE WERE A WHOLE LOT MORE BANDS OUT THERE. IT WAS A BRAND NEW ISSUE. IT HAD JUST BEEN PASSED.

NOBODY WAS REALLY SURE WHERE THIS WAS GOING. NOBODY WAS SURE HOW THIS WAS GOING TO ROLLOUT. THERE WERE SAFETY CONCERNS THERE WERE CONCERNS OF A MYRIAD OF CONCERNS. AND SINCE THIS HAS ROLLED OUT I HAVE THEN TO A DISPENSARY I'VE BEEN TO A COUPLE OF THE GROWTH SITES THE DEVELOPMENT SITES AND IT'S IT'S A BUSINESS IT'S A BUSINESS LIKE ANY OTHER. YOU HAVE GOOD PLAYERS YOU HAVE BAD PLAYERS. WHAT I LIKE TO BE ABLE TO REGULATE IT ON A ON A HOME RULE BASIS. ABSOLUTELY. BUT I ALSO DON'T WANT TO DENY OUR RESIDENTS THE ABILITY TO GO TO THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD DISPENSARY TO TALK TO SOMEBODY BECAUSE THAT'S THE OTHER PART THAT THE DISPENSARIES DO. THEY EDUCATE THE CONSUMER ON WHAT THEY'RE DOING AND WHAT THEY'RE TAKING AND THEY WORK WITH THE CONSUMER OR THE CUSTOMER OR CLIENT TO ENSURE THAT IF SOMETHING ISN'T WORKING AT A CERTAIN LEVEL THAT THEY CAN WORK WITH THEM TO SEE THAT THAT LEVEL'S TAKEN UP A LITTLE BIT BUT STILL WITHIN THE ORDER SO THERE'S THERE'S IT'S GREAT THAT THEY CAN GET IT BY HOME DELIVERY. BUT THERE'S ALSO THAT HUMAN TOUCH THAT THAT EDUCATION PIECE THAT'S NECESSARY AND THEY CAN ONLY GET THAT PERSON TO PERSON AND IF THAT MEANS THAT THE CITY OF TAMARACK HAS TO OPEN UP AND BE WILLING TO LOOK AT DISPENSARIES.

I'M I'M ALL FOR THAT. THANK YOU AGAIN I'M FOR LIFTING THE BAN AND HAVING SOME SORT OF REGULATION LIKE SOME OF THE OTHER CITIES DO. I THINK NATIONAL NATIONALLY IT'S BEEN ACCEPTED THAT MARIJUANA HAS ITS BENEFITS. JAMAICANS HAVE LONG FOR A VERY LONG TIME THAT MARIJUANA HAS HAD ITS BENEFITS. THAT'S RIGHT COMMISSIONER MOULTON. AND YOU KNOW WE KNOW THAT THERE'S ALSO THE POTENTIAL ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY IN THE LONG RUN. SO GIVEN YOU KNOW THE FACT THAT WE UNDERSTAND THERE ARE SOME SOME LAWS AND REGULATIONS YET TO BE OVERCOME IN FEDERAL LAWS I THINK WE SHOULD BE MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION VICE MAYOR THANK YOU FROM A MEDICAL STANDPOINT. I CERTAINLY WOULD NEVER WANT SOMEONE WHO DID THIS FOR MEDICAL REASONS NOT HAVE IT AVAILABLE TO THEM. HOWEVER I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW THESE OTHER CITIES HAVE REGULATED IT BECAUSE YOU KNOW I ENVISION THIS FULL STRIP CENTER OF NOTHING BUT BUT THAT AND THAT THAT WOULD CONCERN ME. THE OTHER QUESTION I HAVE. WHAT DO WE SEE HAPPENING WITH JUST RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA ON THE FOREFRONT. SO DO WE HAVE ANY IDEA WHERE THAT'S GOING WHERE WE MIGHT WIND UP WITH THAT RIGHT NOW. THERE'S BEEN EVERY YEAR

[02:50:06]

FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS THERE'S BEEN AND NUMEROUS BILLS INTRODUCED INTO THE LEGISLATURE REGARDING RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA TO DATE OF COURSE WHICH THEY HAVE NOT PASSED. SO UNLESS AND UNTIL THE LAW CHANGES IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA THEN IT'S GOING TO REMAIN JUST A MEDICAL MARIJUANA PRODUCT. AGAIN ALSO TO MAKE SURE THAT THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA IS DIFFERENT THEN OF COURSE THAT SOMEONE WOULD GET FROM THE STREET OR FOR SOMEONE ELSE. SO THERE IS A DISTINCTION WITHIN THE LAW BETWEEN THOSE TWO WHICH I WOULD ANTICIPATE ALSO BE THE CASE WITH RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA. HOWEVER AGAIN WE STRESS THAT IT IS ILLEGAL STILL UNDER FEDERAL LAW WHICH IS GOING TO PROVIDE A NUMBER OF HURDLES THAT MUST BE OVERCOME BEFORE. AND AGAIN THAT WOULD BE NATIONWIDE WHERE THAT IS THE ANSWER IS I DON'T KNOW I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW THESE OTHER CITIES ARE REGULATING IT AND WHAT. YEAH WELL WE DO HAVE SOME DETAILS ARE SOME NODES IT'S ALLOWED IN CERTAIN DISTRICTS AS ALLOWED BY SPECIAL EXCEPTION BUT THEIR LIMITATION IS SIMILAR TO OURS. IT HAS TO BE CONSISTENT WITH THE WAY WE REGULATE PHARMACY FOR US. WE KNOW THAT PHARMACY IS ALLOWED IN PRETTY MUCH ALL YOUR MIXED USE ON YOUR COMMERCIAL ZONING DISTRICTS AND ALL OF THEM WHICH MEAN WE'D OPEN IT TO DISPENSARIES THE SAME AS WE CURRENTLY HAVE FOR PHARMACIES. THEY MAY ALREADY HAVE SOME LIMITATIONS RELATIVE TO PHARMACY WHETHER IF THE PHARMACY IS CURRENTLY ALLOWED IN THEIR CODE AS A SPECIAL EXCEPTION THEN THEY CAN BE CONSISTENT WITH THAT WITH THE DISPENSARY. SO IF YOU LOOK AT SOME OF THE NOTES IS A CONDITIONAL IN CERTAIN DISTRICTS BY ORDINANCE 2017 WHICH PROBABLY MEANS THAT THEIR PHARMACY IS CONDITIONAL IN CERTAIN DISTRICTS AS WELL. SPECIAL EXCEPTION IN CERTAIN DISTRICTS OR ALLOWED IN CERTAIN ZONING DISTRICTS SO IT HAS TO MIMIC HOW THEY TREAT PHARMACIES. DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW WE COULD CHANGE OUR CODE AS FAR AS PHARMACIES. WELL WE DO HAVE SOME FLEXIBILITY AND I'LL TALK ABOUT IT A LITTLE BIT MORE WITH THE CITY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE. BUT ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS WE DID AS A PART OF THE CODE REWRITE IS THAT PHARMACY ITSELF IS NOT ENUMERATED IN OUR CODE. IT'S CURRENTLY LUMPED UNDER RETAIL. SO WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO EXTRACT THAT AND TO CREATE SOME SOME MORE SPECIALIZED REGULATIONS FOR PHARMACY. AND BY DOING SO WE CAN DO THE SAME FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA. WE KIND OF KNEW THIS DISCUSSION WOULD HAPPEN. I WROTE THE CODE IN THE WAY WE DID. SO CURRENTLY PHARMACY ON ITS OWN IT'S NOT ENUMERATED IN OUR CODE. IT GIVES US SOME LATITUDE IN MY OPINION. OK. FURTHER I WOULDN'T. I WOULD DEFINITELY BE INTERESTED IN THAT. I MEAN YOU PEOPLE WHO NEED THIS FOR MEDICAL CONDITIONS I WOULD NEVER EVER WANT TO DEPRIVE HIM OF THAT AND I KNOW THEY CAN GO WHEREVER THEY CAN GO OR WHATEVER. BUT AS COMMISSIONER FISHMAN SAID SOMETIMES BEING ABLE TO TALK WITH SOMEONE ABOUT IT AND GET SOME INFORMATION. SO I WOULD LIKE FURTHER INFORMATION AND I CAN ALSO SEE WHAT I CAN ADD TO THE DISCUSSION IS FOR ALL THE CITIES THAT HAVE CHOSEN TO REGULATE IT IN BROWARD COUNTY THE DISPENSARIES ARE LOCATED IN DEERFIELD AND. THOSE ARE THE ONLY TWO DISPENSARIES THAT HAVE OPENED UP IN BROWARD COUNTY. THE TREATMENTS AND TREATMENT CENTERS RIGHT.

RIGHT. YET THE ACTUAL DISPENSARY PART OF THE ORGANIZATION. SO AND SO JUST BECAUSE SOME OTHER CITIES MIGHT REGULATE IT AND MAYBE THEY'RE REGULATED FURTHER THAN OR LESS THAN THE CITY IS CONSIDERING EVERY ORDINANCE IS GOING TO BE VALID UNTIL CHALLENGED. BUT AGAIN AS THE NUMBER OF MMT SEES GROW AND MORE AND MORE COME ONLINE MORE AND MORE PATIENTS ARE ADDED TO THE REGISTRY THEN YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE MORE AND MORE REQUESTS FOR THE DISPENSARIES. THE MMT SEEMS TO OPEN UP IN DIFFERENT MUNICIPALITIES OKAY. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. YEAH. YEAH. I WAS JUST LOOKING AT THE WHAT WAS THE SURVEY. THE ONLY METHOD OF AN ONLINE SURVEY WAS THAT THE ONLY METHOD OF REACHING OUT TO RESIDENTS. YES. OK. WHAT WAS THE TOTAL DISTRIBUTION THAT THE I SAW ONLY ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY ONE HUNDRED AND MAYBE THIRTY PEOPLE TOTAL. YEAH AND LAURA IS BEST TO EXPLAIN THIS PRACTICE BUT I THINK YOU CAN GO ON AND YOU CAN REVIEW AND YOU CAN READ IT AND NOT NECESSARILY REGISTER. BUT I THINK TO FULLY PARTICIPATE OR TO HAVE SAFE ATTENDEES OVER FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY SIX OR FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY SIX I LOOKED AT IT. CORRECT. LAURA AND THEN ONE 40 REGISTERED THEIR SURVEY RESPONSE. AND THERE ARE. NO. VERIFIED EMAIL ADDRESS AND IN THOSE INSTANCES I

[02:55:06]

MEAN THE RESULTS WERE VERY SIMILAR FOR UNREGISTERED. WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY REGISTERED UNREGISTERED. OH I JUST VERIFIED THAT THERE. WERE UNREGISTERED COMING FROM AND TO INCREASE PARTICIPATION ALSO POSTED THE LINK ON OUR. WE SENT AN EMAIL TO OUR CITY DISTRIBUTION LIST. NOW IT'S SOMETHING YOU NOTICE HOW MANY RESIDENTS ARE IN OUR EMAIL DISTRIBUTION LIST. YOU KNOW 16. OKAY. AND THEN. SO MAXINE YOU WERE SAYING THAT WE HAVE FLEXIBILITY IN OUR CURRENT CODE. THAT'S MY OPINION. I JUST NEED TO DISCUSS FURTHER WITH SAM. YEAH. LIMITED AND NOT INCOMPATIBLE AS BRIAN MENTIONED WITH THE STATE STATUTES BUT WE HAVE SOME ROOM WE CAN BE CREATIVE I THINK STILL LEGALLY SUFFICIENT AND OPEN THE DOOR FOR US. OK.

BUT DOES OUR CURRENT CODE ALLOW US TO REGULATE IT WITHOUT THE RISK OR WHILE MINIMIZING THE RISK OF A LAWSUIT. MORE OF THE SAME. I MEAN LEGITIMATE ANYBODY CAN LEGITIMATE. DOESN'T MATTER. ALL WE SAY MAY HAVE TO PAY A COMMISSION THROUGH GRANT OF THE. IF ANY PROVIDER WANTS TO OPEN UP A DISPENSARY AND BELIEVES THAT THEY'RE AGGRIEVED BY THE REGULATION BECAUSE THEY'RE BEING EITHER UNDULY BURDENED BY THE REGULATION OR A LEGALLY CHALLENGED BY IT THAT'LL OPEN UP THE DOOR SOME OF THE CITIES IF I MAY QUICKLY TELL A COMMISSION THAT ARE ON THE LIST OF CITIES WE REPRESENT WHERE WE DO HAVE REGULATIONS. I DIDN'T PERSONALLY DRAFT THOSE AUDIENCES I KNOW THAT THEY ARE SORT OF SIMILAR. I THINK OAKLAND PARK MAY BE SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT. THEY HAVE A BIT OF A DIFFERENT APPROACH. THEY'VE NOT BEEN CHALLENGED. I THINK WHAT MATTERS HAS NOT BEEN CHALLENGED. NONE OF OUR CITIES HAVE BEEN CHALLENGED THUS FAR CORRECT. AND SEVERAL OF OPEN UP DISPENSARIES. MATTER WERE GOOD. IF. I HAD THE RIGHT LEGAL WE WOULD DRAFT ANYTHING THAT THE COMMISSION WOULD DIRECT US. ANYTHING THAT'S LEGALLY SUFFICIENT. ABSOLUTELY AND DEFENSIBLE.

WELL THAT'S EXACTLY ANYTHING. AND IF I MAY MADAM MAYOR SPECIFICALLY WHAT WE'RE REFERRING TO IN THE STATUTE WHEN IT SAYS IS A COUNTY MISS APPARENTLY THAT DOES NOT BAN DISPENSING FACILITIES UNDER THE SUB PARAGRAPH MAY NOT PLAY SPECIFIC LIMITS BY ORDINANCE ON THE NUMBER OF DISPENSING FACILITIES THAT MAYBE LOCATE WITHIN THAT MUNICIPALITY. ALSO IT GOES ON TO SAY THAT EXCEPT FOR PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION IN THE COUNTY MISS MISFILED VALLEY MAY NOT ENACT ORDINANCES FOR PERMITTING OR FOR DETERMINING LOCATION OF DISPENSING FACILITIES WHICH ARE MORE RESTRICTIVE THAN THE ORDINANCES PERMIT OR DETERMINE LOCATIONS FOR PHARMACIES AS LICENSE MINUTE. AND IT GOES INTO THAT YOU CAN'T CHARGE ANY FEES GREATER THAN YOU WOULD FOR FARMING. SO THAT'S THE LANGUAGE DIRECTLY WHAT WE'RE REFERRING TO THANK YOU. ARE YOU COMPLETE. MISSION STATEMENT. CAN EITHER OF YOU EXPLAIN TO US IF I AM A PERSON THAT HAS AN AILMENT THAT I BELIEVE MEDICAL MARIJUANA WILL HELP ME WITH THE PROCESS I HAVE TO GO TO OR GO THROUGH TO BE ABLE TO GET AN ORDER IN ORDER TO. BEYOND THE CONTEXT OF REGULATION TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION. YOU FIRST GO TO A DOCTOR THAT IS ALLOWED TO GIVE YOU AN ORDER FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA. THEY MUST BE LICENSED BY THE STATE BY TAKING THE SPECIAL COURSE AND ONCE THEY GET THAT AUTHORIZATION THEY'RE ADDED TO THE QUALIFIED PHYSICIAN LIST. YOU CAN GO VISIT ONE OF THOSE PHYSICIANS AFTER THE YOU THEN SEE THAT PHYSICIAN AND YOU HAVE A QUALIFYING AILMENT AS PROVIDED BY THE STATUTE WHICH IS NUMEROUS. THEN AT THAT POINT YOU GET THE ORDER. THE DOCTOR THEN SUBMITS THAT INFORMATION TO THE PATIENT REGISTRY. YOU THEN HAVE TO ALSO GO ON AND APPLY TO THE REGISTRY PROVIDE THE INFORMATION PROVIDE THE RESIDENT INFORMATION AND ALSO IN THE STATUTE DOES PROVIDE FOR NOT ONLY RESIDENTS BUT SEASONAL RESIDENTS BEING ABLE TO GET ORDERS FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA. SO AFTER YOU GO THROUGH THE REGISTRATION PROCESS EXACTLY HOW LONG. I KNOW THAT IT WAS UPWARDS OF 30 TO 45 DAYS AND THAT WAS A FEW YEARS AGO. HOW QUICKLY YOU GET REGISTERED. TODAY I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT NUMBER IS. BUT ONCE YOU GET YOUR ID CARD OR TEMPORARY ID CARD THAT'S GOING TO CONTAIN THE INFORMATION THAT YOU ARE A A PATIENT THAT YOU ARE ALLOWED THAT YOU'RE ON THE REGISTRY AND ALSO THE ORDER FOR THE PRODUCTS AND THE STRENGTH OF THE PRODUCTS YOU'RE ALLOWED TO GET. THEN ONCE YOU HAVE THAT THEN YOU CAN GO TO ANY DISPENSARY THROUGHOUT THE STATE PRESENTED IN YOUR

[03:00:04]

ORDER. THEY THEN CHECK THE REGISTRY AND THEN PROVIDE YOU THE PRODUCT IN THE AMOUNTS THAT ARE CALLED FOR IN THE ORDER AND THEY CAN ONLY DISPENSE TO YOU A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TO A 70 DAYS SUPPLY. THERE ARE DIFFERENT EXEMPTIONS ON CERTAIN PATIENTS COULD GET SOMETHING MAYBE A LITTLE BIT STRONGER A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN A SEVEN DAY SUPPLY BUT THAT'S YOU GO THROUGH THAT APPROVAL PROCESS TO GET THEM AND THEN AT THAT POINT YOU WILL HAVE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP THE INFORMATION TOGETHER TO KEEP EVERYTHING IN ITS ORIGINAL PACKAGING AND ALSO ABIDE BY THE RULES OF THE USE OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA WHICH NOT IN PUBLIC PLACES. AGAIN THIS HAS NOTHING DO WITH IT AS FAR AS THE EMPLOYERS CAN HAVE THEIR OWN RULES REGULATIONS AS WELL. SO THERE IS ALSO LIMITS ON THE USE AND THAT'S ALL GONE THROUGH I'M ASSUMING YOU COULD MAYBE GO THROUGH THAT WITH YOU BUT IT IS PROVIDED IN STATUTE AND SO THAT'S THE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CLIENT OR THE PATIENT RIGHT. WHAT IS THE PENALTY FOR THEM TO SEE THAT DISPENSES TO SOMEONE WITHOUT A CARD. OR WITHOUT AN ORDER WITHOUT REFERRING DIRECTLY TO THE STATUTE AS FAR AS THE AMOUNT OF THE FINES IT IS PREEMPTED TO THE STATE. THAT REGULATION AND ITS GENERALLY IT COULD BE FINES IT COULD BE A LOSS OF THEIR LICENSE AS WELL. SO GENERALLY THEY'RE VERY CAREFUL AS FAR AS MAKING SURE THAT YOU'RE ON THE REGISTRY BEFORE YOU CAN DO THAT. I CAN'T SPEAK FOR THE TREATMENT CENTERS BUT THE ALL THAT'S PREEMPTED TO THIS DATE AND AS FAR AS IT ALL GOES UNDER THEIR LICENSURE AS WELL AS FINES IF THERE'S ANYTHING BEYOND THAT IF YOU ARE DISPENSING A PRODUCT THAT IS NOT APPROVED AS A MEDICAL MARIJUANA EITHER TREATMENT CENTER OR OFFICIAL BY DEFINITION MEDICAL MARIJUANA AT THAT POINT YOU'RE DEALING IN NARCOTICS WHICH IS A VIOLATION OF CHAPTER 8 93 PUNISHABLE BY LAW. SO THIS IS A THIS IS DEVELOPED INTO A PRETTY WELL REGULATED INDUSTRY. THAT'S NOT WHAT WE WERE DEALING WITH. IN THE BEGINNING AS THE UNKNOWN AS THE ANATOMICALLY CORRECT. AND THAT'S WHY I'M ASSUMING THAT'S WHY THE REGULATIONS AGAIN THAT GO BACK TO THAT SEED TO SALE WHERE THE THOSE NUMBER OF COMPANIES ALTHOUGH AGAIN 22 AT THIS POINT ARE AUTHORIZED BY THE STATE OF FLORIDA. THOSE ARE THE ONLY 22 THAT YOU CAN GO TO THE CORNER STORE AND THEY'RE IN CHARGE OF THEIR PRODUCT FROM BEGINNING TO END. AND I HAVE TO REGULATE THE TREATMENT CENTER. NOW THIS IS JUST DISPENSARY RIGHT. RIGHT. I REALLY LIKE GROWING. AND THE REASON WHY WE HIGHLIGHTED SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE DID IS IT GOES INTO THAT PART WHERE YOU CAN'T PLACE ANY RESTRICTIONS CONFLICTING WITH THE REGULATIONS OR STATE LAW WHEREAS THE STATE LAW DOES GO INTO PACKAGING. IT DOES GO INTO HOURS OF OPERATION IT DOES GO INTO ADVERTISING AS WELL. SO IF IT SOUNDS THAT IT'S VERY LIMITING ON CITIES IS BECAUSE THAT'S HOW IT'S DESIGNED I HAVE HAD THE I'VE TAKEN SOME TIME TO LOOK AT THIS ISSUE. I HAVE THROUGH THE FLORIDA LEGAL STUDIES SEEN THAT PROCESS NOW FROM SEED SALE THROUGH THE FLORIDA LEAGUE AND THROUGH BROWARD COUNTIES MEDICAL MARIJUANA ADVISORY BOARD AND THIS IS A VERY WELL REGULATED INDUSTRY. AND I WANTED TO MAKE THAT CLEAR BECAUSE IT'S NOT WHAT WE WERE DEALING WITH BEFORE. IT IS IT IS IT HAS DEVELOPED IT HAS GROWN INTO. PARDON THE PUN. IN AN INDUSTRY THAT IS A BUSINESS AND ONE OF THE FASTEST DEVELOPING CLIENTELE FOR THAT BUSINESS IS PEOPLE OVER 65 AND WHEN I LOOK AT THE RESIDENTS OF MY DISTRICT THAT ARE SAYING WE NEED THIS IN OUR CITY I DON'T I CAN'T STAND IN THEIR WAY. THANK YOU SEE NO OTHER COMMENTS. I'M GOING TO ASK A FEW QUESTIONS BECAUSE I'VE WELL I HEAR WHAT'S BEING IMPRESSED UPON US ABOUT IT BEING A REGULATED HIGHLY REGULATED I THINK IT'S NOT COMPLETELY FULLY REGULATED IF IT WAS WE WOULDN'T BE HAVING ALL THESE LAWSUITS ABOUT TO UNFOLD OR SAW UNFOLDING BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY REGULATED. SO THAT'S JUST MY TAKE ON THE THE DISCUSSION OF ITS IT'S NOT JUST MARKET. I'M NOT SAYING. ANYTHING FURTHER THAN ON THE LITIGATION FRONT OF WHAT SOME PARAMETERS ARE STILL OUT THERE I THINK WILL BE SEEN. THERE IS A STORE AND FORGIVE ME I SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT IT WITH

[03:05:02]

ME. BUT I'M BLANKING ITS NAME RIGHT NOW ON NOB HILL IN NORTH AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW THAT INDIVIDUALLY I'M NOT REMEMBERING RIGHT NOW IN THE SAME SHOPPING PLAZA AS KINGS POINT DINER. THAT IS A CLINIC IS THAT CORRECT. IT DISPERSES TO BE CBD OILS. IT DOES. OK. SO WE CURRENTLY HAVE AT LEAST ONE STORE IN OUR CITY THAT THIS PERSON SEE THE B OILS WE SHOULDN'T HAVE ANYONE DISPENSING BUT WE DO HAVE MEDICAL OFFICES THAT ARE RIGHT IN THE ORDER AND THERE IS THERE IS A DISTINCTION BETWEEN DISPENSING MEDICAL MARIJUANA VERSUS A RETAIL SALE OF CBD OILS WHICH IS NOT CONSIDERED MEDICAL MARIJUANA. RIGHT. RIGHT. AND YES I THINK THAT WITH MEDICAL MARIJUANA. ANYTHING OF WHERE THERE SHOULD GET THEIR INFORMATION THEY REALLY SHOULD BE GETTING IT FROM THEIR DOCTOR. THE DOCTOR IS THE ONE WHO'S GONNA BE PRESCRIBING IT AND IT IS FOR MEDICINAL PURPOSES AND THEREFORE IT IS UNDER THE OBLIGATION OF THE DOCTOR TO FULLY INFORM PATIENTS OF WHAT THEY WILL BE TAKING FOR THEIR AILMENTS AND LET'S JUST CALL IT OUT IN THE ROOM OBVIOUSLY I AM ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO AM A PRIME CANDIDATE IF I SHOULD NEED IT MY DOCTOR HAS NOT PRESCRIBED IT I HAVE NOT ASKED FOR IT. THAT IS A PERSONAL ITEM THAT I'M JUST SHARING WITH PEOPLE BEFORE ASSUMPTIONS ARE MADE ALL OVER THE PLACE. YOU SAID SOMETHING ABOUT VAPING STOP VAPING AND BEING ABLE TO USE A VAPING IF WE'RE CHANGING ANY OF THE RULES OR LOOKING INTO CHANGING THE RULES. MY CONCERN WOULD BE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DON'T ALL OF A SUDDEN ALLOW VAPING STORES WHICH WE HAVE WORKED HARD IN OUR RULES AND REGULATIONS TO NOT HAVE IN MANY OF OUR CLAUSES OF SOME BE POPPING UP AS A UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE OF BEING GIVEN AUTHORITY TO DISPERSE THIS.

IT'S JUST A THROW THROW OUT THERE FOR IF YOU'RE LOOKING INTO THINGS IN THE FUTURE FOR US TO REVIEW. OKAY. IF I MAY A MADMAN TO THE EXTENT THAT A VAPING DEVICE IS A MEDICAL MARIJUANA APPROVED TOOL THROUGH THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CENTERS IT WOULD BE ALLOWED. NOW AS FAR AS OTHER TYPES OF UNAPPROVED DELIVERY DEVICES THEN THE CITY'S CURRENT REGULATIONS WOULD REMAIN IN PLACE BUT AS FAR AS A AN APPROVED MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CENTER THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO SELL A VAPING DEVICE WHICH WAS APPROVED AND LABELED ACCORDINGLY FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA USE.

THIS ISN'T CONCERNED ABOUT VAPING ON PREMISES OR HAVING A VAPING SHOP THAT YOU BASICALLY DON'T WANT TO HAVE NO BACKDOOR OPEN UP BY A SLIDE AND A LOOPHOLE OF ANY KIND OF CHANGES THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO THEN ALLOW THAT WHICH WE ALREADY DECIDED WAS NOT WHAT OUR CITY AND HOW ENTITLED OR WANTED I'M PRESUMING THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION IS YES. BUT WHEN YOU WERE DESCRIBING THE PROCESS THIS REGISTRY FOR THE ORDERS THAT ARE PROVIDED THE ORDERS ARE TRACKED SO USUALLY THERE IS A LENGTHY TIME ON A PRESCRIPTION YOU CAN'T GET MORE THAN THESE MANY REFILLS CERTAIN PERIOD OF TIME PRESUMING THAT PROCESS IS THE SAME WITH US. YES. IS IT A MANDATORY LINK FROM ALL CENTERS THAT WOULD BE DISPERSING. THAT THEY HAVE CONNECTIVITY SO WE HAVE SOMEBODY WHO COVERS THE TAMARACK TO PLACE THEIR ORDER WITHIN AN HOUR DRIVES OVER TO POMPANO BEACH BECAUSE IT SHOULDN'T TAKE THAT LONG. BUT YOU KNOW HOW TRAFFIC IS IT MIGHT TAKE THAT LONG AND THEN TRIES TO DISPENSE THERE ARE THOSE PROVISIONS ARE THAT REGISTRY SUPPOSED TO BE REAL TIME. YES IT'S DUE TO THE BEST OF MY UNDERSTANDING BECAUSE ONCE THAT ORDER IS FILLED IT GOES INTO THE REGISTRY SO TO PREVENT THAT KIND OF ABUSE. SO FROM WHAT I HEAR FROM MY COLLEAGUES THERE IS A MAJORITY IF I HEARD OK THERE SEEM TO BE THREE. WELL I'M NOT PUTTING ANYBODY IN THIS FIGHT THOSE PEOPLE WHO WILLINGLY SPOKE ABOUT IT I HEARD THREE OK TO NOT PUT ANYBODY ON THE SPOT I HAVE TO SAY YES OR NO. FOR A REVIEW OR A MORE IN-DEPTH REVIEW OF POTENTIAL ORDINANCE TO BE BROUGHT BACK BEING LOOKED AT WITH AN EYE FOR KEEPING IN MIND OUR CITIZENS SAFETY THOSE WHO ARE FOR IT AND AGAINST IT SO EVER. BUT HE FEELS OK

[03:10:05]

WITH IT. CERTAIN DISTRICTS ON IT. I AM A LITTLE CONCERNED ON OUR SURVEY IN THE RESPECT SAID I DON'T KNOW IF I WAS AS DETAILED AS A SURVEY COULD BE IT SHOULD BE THAT WE'RE ACTING ON. BUT THAT BE ASIDE IF THE COMMISSION HAS ALREADY HAD THREE THAT WISHES FOR MORE DETAIL PLEASE PROVIDE US MORE DETAIL AND THEN WE CAN GO FROM THERE ON OUR REGULATIONS. ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU LADIES AND GENTLEMEN IF THERE'S NOTHING

[7. Other]

FURTHER THAN AT WAS THIS SOMETHING YOU COULD HAVE TOLD ME ABOUT EARLIER. BUT I GUESS NOT. GO FOR IT. WHAT IS IT. OKAY. I HAVE TWO THINGS TO DISCUSS. THE FIRST ONE IS THAT SOME TIME AGO WE HAD SPOKEN ABOUT THE STORAGE FACILITY HIGHLAND ROAD AND COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD. AND WE I MENTIONED IN PASSING THAT I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THIS. I'D LIKE TO HAVE THE CITY'S PROCEEDS OF THE SALE WAS A SALE OF THE PROPERTY TO BE EARMARKED FOR PROJECTS IN DISTRICT 1. AND SO NOW THAT THE LAND IS SOLD YET WE HAVE NOT CLOSED YET JUST FOR THE RECORD. BUT THERE IS A POTENTIAL ITEM NUMBER.

FORGIVE ME FOR JUST INTERRUPTING THE CONTRACTOR SALE REQUIRES CLOSING WITHIN 30 DAYS AFTER THE SIGNATURE OF THE EXECUTION OF THE FINAL SITE PLANT ORDER. AND THE OTHER LEGAL DOCUMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE APPROVAL WHICH ARE THEN QUOTE NOT APPEALABLE BUT THEN CALL FOR CLOSING. THEY HAVE BY THE WAY THE BUYER HAS POSTED THEIR SECOND AND FINAL DEPOSIT AS OF LAST WEEK. THANK YOU. RIGHT. SO I'M PENDING THE SALE OF THE PARCEL OF LAND. I'M ASKING THAT WE FORMALIZE PLANS TO EARMARK THE PROCEEDS OF THAT OF THE SALE OF THE LAND FOR PROJECTS IN DISTRICT 1 MIGHT THIS BE A DISCUSSION THAT WE WILL BE BETTER OFF HAVING AS WE GO THROUGH THE BUDGET NEXT WEEK BECAUSE WE ARE DISCUSSING NUMEROUS BUDGET ITEMS AND THIS WAY IT WILL BE GIVEN THE REST OF THE COMMISSION AN OPPORTUNITY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT OTHER ITEMS ARE GOING FORWARD AND BE ABLE TO AT LEAST IN MY OPINION HAVE A BETTER IDEA OF HOW TO ANSWER THAT. I DID HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH APPROPRIATE PEOPLE AND I WAS ASSURED THAT THIS IS THE VENUE TO DO THAT. I UNDERSTAND THAT BUT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW SOME OF THE PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE PLANNED FOR THE NEXT YEAR AND WHAT WE PLAN ON EARMARKING AND WHAT WE PLAN ON WORKING FORWARD. I'M NOT SAYING I'M AGAINST ANY OF IT BUT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE OF WHAT WE HAVE PLANNED FOR A BUDGET BEFORE I AUTOMATICALLY SAY THERE'S SOME CERTAIN MATERIAL AND GO TO ONE PART OF THE DISTRICT. THERE IS ALSO DISTRICT 2 THAT IS ALSO AFFECTED BY IT AND OUR WHOLE CITY IS AFFECTED BY IT. AND PERSONALLY I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR MORE ABOUT OUR BUDGET AND MAYBE IF YOU FEEL THAT THE BUDGET IS NOT THE RIGHT PLACE AND WE DISCUSSED THIS AT THE NEXT BUDGET MEETING WHICH IS ALL NEXT WEEK FEW DAYS NEXT WEEK THEN WE CAN BRING IT BACK TO A DIFFERENT WORKSHOP AND WORKSHOP THE ITEM ACCORDINGLY. SO PERSONAL. AND YOU'VE YOU'VE MADE YOUR POINT SO NO I PERSONALLY WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM MY COLLEAGUES IF THEY'D BE INTERESTED IN HAVING THE PROCEEDS BE EARMARKED FOR PROJECTS IN DISTRICT 1. AND I'D ALSO LIKE TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT OUR EARMARKED IDEAS ARE LIKE WHAT OUR MONEY IS GOING TO BE WHICH I DON'T KNOW IF WE COULD DO JUST YET IF WE HAVE A SETTLEMENT STATEMENT PROPOSED OR IF IT'S STILL TWO WHICH ARE THINGS WHICH ARE A MATURE MATTER IT'S PREMATURE FOR A SECOND FINAL DEPOSIT AND WE'RE WORKING WITH THE BUYERS AND SELLERS COUNCIL TO COORDINATE CLOSING WHICH WILL PROBABLY BE WITHIN WITHIN THE NEXT 30 DAYS OR LESS. OKAY. THANK YOU SAM. COMMISSIONER GO I SUPPORT IT. I THINK DISTRICT 1 IS MAYBE THE MOST NEGLECTED DISTRICT OR THE WELL THAT'S GETS THE LEAST REALLY OR THE LEAST ATTRACTIVE DISTRICT. I MEAN WITH ALL THE NEW REPAIRS THOUGH I'M JUST GUESS IT'S JUST MY OPINION. IT'S JUST MY PAIN. I MEAN MY OPINION IS THAT MY DISTRICT IS THE BEST DISTRICT AND HAS I MEAN IT HAS THE MOST MODERN FACILITIES IT HAS THE BEST FACILITIES WE'RE ABOUT TO HAVE TAMARACK VILLAGE. BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE ALL OF TAMARACK LOOK THE SAME OR SIMILAR OR HAVE SIMILAR AMENITIES WHERE EVERYONE CAN FEEL LIKE THEIR DISTRICT IS THE BEST DISTRICT. AND I THINK

[03:15:05]

COMMISSIONER BOLTON FEELS LIKE HIS DISTRICT IS NEGLECTED AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE ATTENTION TO THAT DISTRICT. SO. SO I SUPPORT THAT GREAT REFRESHMENT. I BELIEVE THAT I'D LIKE TO. I'D LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS. I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A BUDGETARY ITEM THAT SHOULD BE DISCUSSED NEXT WEEK DURING THE BUDGET DISCUSSIONS.

NOT SAYING I'M FOR IT OR AGAINST THAT. I JUST NEED MORE INFORMATION VICE MAYOR YOU KNOW THE ISSUE. WELL THAT STORAGE FACILITY HAS BEEN SO CONTENTIOUS. HAVING DRIVEN THROUGH DISTRICT 1 I I HAVE TO SAY WITHOUT WITHOUT SOUNDING AT ALL NASTY IT DOES NEED SOME WORK. THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT DO THAT REALLY DO NEED TO BE DONE IN DISTRICT 1. I DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS FALLS IN WITH THE BUDGET. IF THIS WOULD BE THINGS THAT ARE BUDGETED AND THAT MONEY WILL GO TO THAT OR THINGS THAT ARE NOT BUDGETED BUT I DON'T HAVE ANY PROBLEM WITH IT BEING EARMARKED FOR DISTRICT 1 I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO BE A PROPER TIME. SO. SO BASICALLY BASICALLY THOUGH AGAIN THE BEST TIME FOR SNOW IS GOING ON WE'LL BE AT OUR NEXT WEEK'S MEETING WHEN WE ARE HEARING ABOUT WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO FOR THE CITY AND BUDGETING SO I'M GOING TO ASK OUR CITY MANAGER FOR THE APPROPRIATE WAY TO BE DEALING WITH THIS BECAUSE AS MUCH AS A KNEE JERK REACTION TO MAKE A DECISION I DON'T WANT TO PUT THE COMMISSION TO MAKE ANY DECISION THAT WILL WIND UP BEING A PROBLEM WHEN WE CAN'T COMPLETE THIS. SO THERE HAS BEEN DISCUSSION WE TALKED ABOUT IT THROUGH STRATEGIC PLANNING WE ALL HAVE SAID THAT WE WANT TO DO MORE. HE'S NEVER BEEN A PROBLEM WITH IT. WE'VE ACTUALLY TALKED ABOUT DOINGS EARMARKING AND WHATNOT. BUT AGAIN WE ALSO TALKED ABOUT MAKING SURE WE GET TO OUR BUDGET. SO CITY MANAGER HOW APPROPRIATELY SHOULD WE BE HANDLING THIS AT THIS TIME. SINCE WE DON'T KNOW WHAT'S BEFORE US UNTIL NEXT WEEK. SO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY CAN HEAR ME OK. I'D SAY THERE'S THERE'S TWO ISSUES TO CONSIDER AND I'LL JUST GIVE YOU MY THOUGHTS ON BOTH. NUMBER ONE IS IS THE POLICY OF EARMARKING REVENUES FOR CERTAIN THINGS. AND THEN THE SECOND IS THE SALE OF THE PROPERTY IN DISTRICT 1 AND THE YOU KNOW IN THE USE AND THE USE OF THE MONEY IN DISTRICT 1. AND THIS IS A BIT LIKE I SAID I WANT TO SPEAK TO BOTH BECAUSE THEY'RE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE. I THINK THIS IS A UNIQUE CIRCUMSTANCE THAT WE DON'T SEE EVERY DAY AS A POLICY. YOU KNOW WE DON'T LIKE TO EARMARK MONEY THAT'S COMING IN FOR CERTAIN THINGS. WE LIKE TO TAKE A PROJECT AND WE LIKE TO YOU KNOW EVALUATED ON THE MERITS OF THE PROJECT AND THEN WE LIKE TO COME TO YOU AND WE LIKE TO ASK YOU TO FUND IT BASED ON THE MERITS OF THE PROJECT NOT NECESSARILY BASED ON WHERE THE MONEY'S COMING FROM. IF YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I MEAN NOW. SO AS A POLICY I DON'T LIKE EARMARKING MONEY FOR CERTAIN THINGS BECAUSE THE THINGS THAT WE'RE DOING SHOULD BE THINGS THAT WE WOULD DO REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT WAS THIS MONEY OR OTHER MONEY. AND I THINK THAT THERE'S PLENTY TO DO IN DISTRICT 1. AND SO THERE ARE ANY NUMBER OF PROJECTS AND THIS MONEY WILL GO VERY QUICKLY IN DISTRICT 1. SO AGAIN I DON'T LIKE THE POLICY OF EARMARKING FUNDS FOR FOR SPECIFIC THINGS. NOW TO SPEAK TO THE SALE OF THE PROPERTY AND THE REVENUE THAT'S COMING FROM THE SALE OF THE PROPERTY WE HEARD ALL THROUGH THE SETTLEMENT PROCESS AND THEN THE LAND USE PROCESS ABOUT THIS LAND AND IT WAS IT WAS NOT AN EASY DECISION FOR YOU TO MAKE IT WAS CONTROVERSIAL SOME PEOPLE REALLY DIDN'T LIKE IT. A LOT OF PEOPLE DIDN'T LIKE IT. BUT THE COMMISSION WENT AHEAD AND SETTLED THE LITIGATION BY SELLING THE PROPERTY AND APPROVING THE LAND USE. AND WE'LL HAVE A CLOSING IN 20. FUMING THAT THAT CONTINUES. AND SO YOU KNOW RECOGNIZING THIS FOR WHAT IT WAS I CERTAINLY DON'T SEE ANY PROBLEM WITH THE COMMISSION SAYING LET'S PUT THAT MONEY TOWARDS A PROJECT IN DISTRICT 1. KNOW AGAIN I DON'T LIKE IT AS A POLICY AND I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND IT BUT THIS IS A UNIQUE CIRCUMSTANCE WHERE A PIECE OF PROPERTY WAS USED TO SETTLE LITIGATION. IT WAS A LONG

[03:20:03]

STANDING LITIGATION. IT WAS NOT TYPICAL. AND YOU KNOW THERE WAS A LOT OF CONTROVERSY ABOUT THE IMPACT THAT THIS WAS GOING TO POTENTIALLY HAVE ON PEOPLE IN DISTRICT 1 AND IN DISTRICT 2. AND I GUESS WHAT I'M SAYING IS YOU KNOW THERE'S THERE ARE PLENTY OF PROJECTS IN DISTRICT 1 THAT ARE GOING TO GET FUNDED THROUGH THE BUDGET. THIS MONEY WILL GO. I THINK IN DISTRICT 1 VERY QUICKLY AND TO SAY YOU KNOW TO THE GOOD PEOPLE OF DISTRICT 1 THAT YOU KNOW THIS THIS THIS SALE OF THIS PROPERTY HAS A BENEFIT TO YOU IN THIS WAY I THINK IS OK. AND JUST JUST TO ADD IF I IF I MAY. SO WE WE ARE WE WOULD BE TAKING DIRECTION TO MAKING SURE THAT THAT MONEY BE EARMARKED FOR PROJECTS. THE BUDGET PROCESS IS IS THEN TO IDENTIFY WHAT PROJECTS WE WOULD USE THE MONEY FOR. SO I'M NOT SAYING YOU KNOW WE SHOULD EARMARK THE MONEY FOR THIS SPECIFIC PROJECT AND THIS IS WHAT I WON ALL WE WERE SAYING IS WE'RE WE ARE WE'RE DESIGNATING THAT MONEY TO BE USED IN DISTRICT 1. WHEN WE GET TO THE BUDGET MEETING WE FIND OUT WHAT PROJECTS IN DISTRICT 1 IS IS GOING TO BE SUITABLE FOR THAT MONEY. THAT'S ALL WE'RE SAYING. SO I THANK MY COLLEAGUES FOR THOSE COLLEAGUES WHO SUPPORTED IT TODAY. ON WEDNESDAY I'LL MAKE THE FORMAL MOTION TO MOVE IT FORWARD. I WANT TO STEP IN BEFORE YOU GO TO YOUR SECOND PLACE SIR. I'D LIKE TO STEP IN BEFORE YOU GO TO YOUR SECOND. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND COMMENTS WERE NOT MADE THAT THEY DIDN'T SUPPORT IT. IT'S THE PROPER FORUM IN THE CHAIRS OPINION TO TRY TO MAKE SURE THINGS ARE DONE BECAUSE I BELIEVE I KNOW I WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO SAID YOUR MARKET AND WAS TOLD ABOUT OUR POLICY THAT WE USUALLY DON'T EARMARK. SO AND ALSO IN SOME RESPECTS I GUESS ON BEHALF OF PEOPLE IN DISTRICT 1 IN WHICH I KNOW YOU REPRESENT AS WELL I GUESS I DON'T THINK IT LOOKS AT THAT I THINK WE'RE LOOKING GOOD. WE'VE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY OVER THE YEARS THERE TRYING TO MAKE THINGS COME ABOUT AND SOME OF THE STUFF THAT I THINK WE GET. SAY THAT AGAIN YOU DON'T YOU DON'T THINK I THINK THE CITY OF TAMARACK LOOKS GOOD. I THINK WE'RE IMPROVING EVERY DAY SPEAKS SPECIFICALLY ABOUT THIS. ONCE AGAIN YOU SAID YOU DON'T THINK. I THINK SOMETIMES DISTRICT 1 GETS HIT WITH SOME OF OUR SISTER CITIES THE IMPRESSION OF SOME OF OUR SISTER CITIES ON US THAT IS NOT US BORDERS BEFORE YOU START TRYING TO PIGEONHOLE ME TO MARK ME DOWN ON SOMETHING AND SAY SOMETHING I DIDN'T SAY PLEASE DON'T. NO I'M NOT JUST ONE OF THESE ONE. LET ME SET UP A EMAIL AND I DON'T FEEL GOOD. PLEASE STOP. I DON'T FEEL GOOD. ALL I'M TRYING TO SAY IF YOU BOUGHT MY LINE YOU SHOULD HAVE STAYED HOME AND LET THE VICE MAYOR HANDLE THE MEETING MARLIN.

THAT'S WHAT THE PROCESS IS IS FOR. MARLIN ADVISED ME TO RUN A MEETING IF YOU'RE NOT FEELING WELL I'M NOT MORAL INSENSITIVE BUT I'M JUST SAYING YES YOU ARE YOU'RE NOT LETTING ME FINISH YOU'RE GOING TO BE A MAYOR BE A MAYOR IF YOU CAN MORALLY THEN LET THE VICE MAYOR HANDLE IT. SHE KNOWS THAT MARLIN WOULD BRING FEELINGS INTO THIS. THIS IS A MEETING. YES I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO MONEY TO MARLIN. I'M TRYING TO SPEAK. GO AHEAD. YOU HAVE MY PERMISSION. WHY. THANK YOU SIR. BASICALLY I THINK OUR CITY IS LOOKING VERY GOOD AND OUR CITY HAS BEEN WORKING VERY HARD TO MAKE THINGS LOOK BETTER AND BETTER AND BETTER. AND I DO HOPE THAT SOMETIMES WHEN PEOPLE ARE DRIVING THROUGH OUR CITY WHETHER IT'S ANY OF OUR BORDERS PEOPLE KEEP IN MIND THAT SOMETIMES THE BORDERS OF OUR CITY. I LOVE OUR SISTER CITIES BUT MAYBE IT'S SOMETIMES THE SISTER CITY THAT IS NOT LOOKING AS GOOD AS THEY WANTED TO BE WHEN THEY PEOPLE UNFORTUNATELY MISTAKE SOME OF OUR BORDERS TO NOT BEING OURS. BUT THINK IT'S ARES GENERAL COMMENT SO WE WILL CONTINUE TO GO THROUGH THE PROCESS AND CONTINUE TO DO EVERYTHING WE POSSIBLY CAN FOR ALL DISTRICTS IN OUR CITY TO LOOK GOOD AND LOOK BETTER AS WE CAN. WHAT IS YOUR SECOND ITEM JUST TO BE CLEAR. I HAVE ACCESS TO THE AGENDA ITEM ON WEDNESDAY. I'LL MAKE THE PROPER MOTION TO MOVE WHAT THE MAJORITY OF MY COLLEAGUES HAVE CONSENTED TO TODAY. SECOND THING IS THAT SOME TIME AGO I SPOKE ABOUT BOYD ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL AND HOW BOYD ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL NEEDS OUR HELP. I WAS TOLD BACK THEN THAT SCHOOLS ARE NOT OUR PROBLEM.

THAT IS IS THE SCHOOL BOARD. THAT IS OUR PROBLEM. SOMETIME AFTER THAT WE SHIFTED FOCUS AND COMMISSION MEMBERS ARE NOW TAKING A LOOK AT SCHOOLS AND MAKING. AND REALIZING THAT OUR HELP IS NEEDED. SO I'M ONCE AGAIN BRINGING BACK BOYD ANDERSON TO THE COMMISSION TO ADD BOYD ANDERSON TO OUR LIST OF CHARITIES I BELIEVE THAT THEY NEED

[03:25:09]

OUR HELP. I BELIEVE THAT WITH OUR RESOURCES AND WITH OUR CELEBRITY WE CAN HELP THE SCHOOL SO I'D LIKE TO HAVE THE SUPPORT OF MY COLLEAGUES TO WITH TO OUR LIST OF CHARITIES MR. CITY ATTORNEY THIS MAN IF I RECALL CORRECTLY THE REASON THAT'S BOYD ANDERSON WAS NOT ADDED TO THE LIST OF CHARITIES WAS DUE TO IT BEING A 5O SEE SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT ON THE LIST UNDER THE REGULATIONS FOR BARAK COUNTY'S GOVERNANCE FOR CHARITIES WHICH IS WHY WAS NOT PUT ON THERE. WHAT WE HAD ASKED WAS IF THERE WAS A PTO OR ANY OTHER SPECIFIC ORGANIZATION THAT IS A C 5O AND C THREE THAT COULD BE PROVIDED TO US TO PUT ON THE LIST OF CHARITIES. AND THAT WAS NEVER BROUGHT FORTH. YOU GET A MOTHER THAT A NARROW CHECKLIST THE AUDIENCE TO BE CLEAR ON WHETHER OR NOT A CHARITY GENERALLY OR IF I GO AND SEE THREE SPECIFICALLY IS DISTINGUISHED IN THE CODE I BELIEVE THAT IT IS IN THE ONE SECOND I'LL FIND IT. WITH REGARD TO THAT SUBJECT MATTER. I DO A LOT OF RESEARCH ON THIS. I AM WAITING FOR THIS CITY ATTORNEY TO RESPOND. COMMISSIONER BOLTON IT IS THE CITY ATTORNEY'S FLOOR. SO IT IS THE CITY ATTORNEY'S FLOOR. COMMISSIONER BOLTON OF MISSISSIPPI ATTORNEY WHEN YOU'RE DOING YOUR RESEARCH. THANK YOU. I HOPE THAT YOU USE CONCURRENT REFERENCES SOLICITATION AND RECEIPT OF CONTRIBUTIONS CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION FUNDRAISING THE SOLICITATION OF FUNDS BY AN ELECTED OFFICIAL FOR A CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION FOR IT FOR IT TO BE FOR A NON-PROFIT CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION AS DEFINED UNDER THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE IS PERMISSIBLE SO LONG AS THERE IS NO QUID PRO QUO OR OTHER SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS INCLUDING ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT BENEFIT BETWEEN THE PARTIES TO THE SOLICITATION. SO IF YOU LOOK AT THE REFERENCE IT DOES MAKE REFERENCE TO AN IRS CODE OF REFERENCE WHICH IS AS DEFINED UNDER THE IRS INTERNAL REVENUE CODE WHICH WOULD BE A 5 0 1 2 3 4 5 ETC.. SO THAT IS THAT THAT IS ACTUALLY IN THE IN THAT IN THE PROVISIONS OF THE ETHICS CODE. AND THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE CONSTRAINT SOME TIME AGO WHEN IT WAS CONSIDERED IN THE CONTEXT OF THE DISCLOSURE HERE REQUIRED IF THE CITY WERE TO CO-SPONSOR CO ENDORSE FOR THAT PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SO THERE IS A PROVISION THAT TALKS ABOUT A NON-PROFIT CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION AS DEFINED UNDER THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE SO THEN THE QUESTION BECOMES CAN THEY CAN. CAN THE CONDITION OTHERWISE SUPPORT A AN ORGANIZATION WHICH IS NOT A NON-PROFIT AND NOT A CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION AS DEFINED BY THE IRS CODE WHICH WAS WHAT THE CONCERN WAS IF I'M HAVING A LITTLE TROUBLE HEARING OVER THE MANICURISTS IN THE BACK. BASICALLY IF I HEARD YOU CORRECTLY CAN YOU RESTATE IT SO WE CAN HEAR YOU CORRECTLY. RIGHT FROM THE CODE IT'S NOT MY STATEMENT BUT I'LL REPEAT IT AGAIN SOLICITATION AND RE AND RECEIPT OF CONTRIBUTIONS CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION FUND RAISING. AND THIS IS THE SECTION UNDER THE BROWARD COUNTY ETHICS CODE THE SOLICITATION OF FUNDS BY AN ELECTED OFFICIAL FOR A NON-PROFIT CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION AS DEFINED UNDER THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE IS PERMISSIBLE SO LONG AS THERE IS NO QUID PRO QUO OR OTHER SPECIAL CONSIDERATION INCLUDING ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT BENEFIT BETWEEN THE PARTIES TO THE SOLICITATION AND THEN IT REQUIRES AS YOU KNOW TO PROVIDE FULL AND COMPLETE TRANSPARENCY OF ANY SUCH SOLICITATION AN ELECTED OFFICIAL SHALL DISCLOSE ON A FORM CREATED BY THE OFFICE OF THE COUNTY ATTORNEY THE NAME OF THE CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION THE EVENT FOR WHICH THE FUNDS WERE SOLICITED AND THE NAME OF ANY INDIVIDUAL OR ENTITY THAT REQUESTED THAT THE ELECTED OFFICIAL ENGAGE IN THE CHARITABLE FUNDRAISING SOLICITATION. THE FORM SHALL BE FOR REPUBLICANS FACTION WITHIN 15 DAYS AFTER THIS LIMITATION OF FUNDS BY THE ELECTED OFFICIAL WE'VE TAKEN THE POSITION THAT IF YOU'RE ON A LIST APPROVED BY THE CITY COMMISSION AS A QUOTE KOCH SPONSORSHIP YOU DON'T NEED TO FILE A FORM. OK. GOD BLESS YOU. SO THE QUESTION IS WHETHER OR NOT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT OR THE SCHOOL ITSELF QUALIFIES UNDER THIS PROVISION TO RECEIVE FUNDS FROM THE CITY OR TO BETTER SAID RECEIVE YOUR SUPPORT. BUT IN ANY ONE OF US IF WE FEEL THAT ANY THING IS A NONPROFIT AND WE WISH TO PERSONALLY GIVE FUNDS WE CAN WE JUST HAVE TO FILL OUT A FORM IS THAT CORRECT. THAT IS GENERALLY CORRECT.

SO DOES A SCHOOL WHICH IS A GOVERNING BODY IN ITS OWN DISTRICT COME UNDER THE PARAMETERS OF BEING A LEGALLY ACCEPTABLE CHARITY FOR WHICH CITY FUNDS CAN BE USED.

THAT'S THAT'S ANOTHER TOPIC WHICH IS PROBABLY A LITTLE LENGTHY TO DISCUSS TODAY WHICH IS YOU SHOULD DOUBLE TAXATION BECAUSE CITY MONIES CAN'T BE CAN'T GO TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR BUILDING FACILITIES. YOU KNOW THOSE KINDS OF THINGS. AND THAT'S WHERE IT BECOMES A LITTLE BIT GRAY IN THE CONTEXT OF WHAT IS

[03:30:04]

AN INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL A SCHOOL IS PART OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. IT'S PART OF THE SCHOOL BOARD OF BROWARD COUNTY. IT'S NOT JUST A SCHOOL AS PART OF THE LARGER ORGANIZATION. THE PLAIN LANGUAGE OF THE ETHICS CODE SAYS THAT THAT IF YOU ARE SUPPORTING AS A INDIVIDUAL ELECTED OFFICIAL A NONPROFIT CHARITY CHARITY UNDER THE FIRE UNDER THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE YOU HAVE TO DISCLOSE YOUR FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES UNLESS OF COURSE AND WE'VE OPINED TO THIS IN THE PAST UNLESS THE CITY AS A WHOLE CITY COMMISSION TAKES ON THE CHARITY AS A GROUP EFFORT AND THEREFORE YOU YOU KNOW ENDORSE THEM WHICH MEANS YOU DON'T HAVE TO INDIVIDUALLY DISCLOSE YOUR FUNDRAISING BEHAVIOR ON THEIR BEHALF. THE ISSUE IS WHETHER OR NOT A SCHOOL AMONG MANY IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT IS IN FACT AN INDEPENDENT CHARITY. I CAN'T ANSWER THAT QUESTION HERE. I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEIR CONSTITUTION IS AND HOW THEY'RE ACTUALLY MADE UP. I DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER. I MEAN I DON'T MEAN ANY ANY HIGH SCHOOL OR MIDDLE SCHOOL OR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. THEY'RE PART OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT ITSELF WHICH IS A PUBLIC ENTITY. THERE ARE 67 COUNTIES 67 SCHOOL DISTRICTS. YOU KNOW WHETHER OR NOT A SCHOOL WITHIN THE DISTRICT IS INDEPENDENT OF THAT I CAN'T SAY FOR SURE BUT I'D DO ANY HOMEWORK MORE THAN LIKELY NOT. NOW FOR EXAMPLE THERE MAY BE A PTO THAT THAT BECAME A NOT A 5 1 C 3. THAT'S I GUESS THEORETICALLY POSSIBLE I DON'T KNOW THAT I DON'T THAT THAT THAT SCHOOL HAS ONE FOR EXAMPLE WHERE IN SOME INSTANCES THE THE PTO IS ACTUALLY FORMED SEPARATE ENTITIES TO RAISE MONEY FOR THEIR OWN SCHOOL WHICH IS SEPARATE AND DISTINCT FROM RAISING MONEY FOR THE SCHOOL DISTRICT IS FOR THAT INDIVIDUAL SPECIFIC SCHOOL. BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEIR WHAT THEIR LEGAL STRUCTURE IS AT THAT POINT ANDERSON. WE CAN CERTAINLY DO SOME HOMEWORK WHICH IS WHY WE WOULD ASK IF THERE WAS A PTO OR ANY ORGANIZATION THAT WE COULD DO TO HAVE IT WHERE IT WOULD FALL UNDER OUR PARAMETERS.

MR. EFFICIENT I JUST WANT TO CLARIFY BECAUSE AT NO TIME DID WE SAY BOYD ANDERSON WAS NOT OUR PROBLEM NO TIME. WITH THAT SAID I'LL CLARIFY IF I MAY. THE MAYOR AT THE TIME SAID SCHOOLS ARE NOT OUR PROBLEM. IT'S ON RECORD. THE MAYOR THE MAYOR IS NOT HERE BECAUSE THE VICE MAYOR WAS IN CHARGE OF THAT MEETING. NO NO NO NO. YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH. RIGHT HERE RIGHT HERE IN A WORKSHOP THE MAYOR SAYS SCHOOLS I GOT THE FULL TITLE BECAUSE I DON'T WANT ANY OF THIS STUFF COME BACK TO ME I'LL ACCEPT WHAT'S ON MINE NOT LET'S NOT SO PLEASE USE THE RIGHT MAYOR MAYOR RIDGE WRESTLER SAID RIGHT HERE IN A WORKSHOP THAT SCHOOLS ARE NOT OUR PROBLEM EVERYONE REMAIN SILENT. I PULL THE MEETING UP PULL THE TIMESTAMP AND E-MAIL IT TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. THE SESSION YOU RENOUNCE HALLOWEEN AND DANCE YOU REMAIN SILENT. YOU REALLY ENJOY ANDERSON GOING ON OUR CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION. ANDERSON WE'RE TALKING THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SCHOOLS IN GENERAL. YOU SAID THAT IT'S NOT OUR CONCERN. IT'S NOT OUR PROBLEM. YOU SAID THAT RIGHT NOW LADIES AND GENTLEMEN AT THIS POINT IN TIME WE NEED TO BRING IT BACK TO JANUARY. JUNE 10TH 2019 COMMISSIONER BOLTON BY ANY CHANCE. ARE YOU AWARE IS THERE A PTO OR SOME ORGANIZATION AT BOYD ANDERSON THAT HAS A FIVE O AND C THREE THAT WE CAN KNOW WITHOUT ISSUE AND WITHOUT FURTHER RESEARCH. NO AT THIS TIME THAT CAN ACCEPT FUNDS IF THEY ARE PUT ON THE CITY'S LIST. I THINK THE MORE INTELLIGENT QUESTION TO ASK IS TO HAVE THE CITY ATTORNEY RESEARCH WHETHER OR NOT BOYD ANDERSON CAN GO ON THE LIST IN WHATEVER CAPACITY. LET HIM DO THE ATTORNEY THING AND COME BACK TO US AT A TIME CERTAIN WITH INFORMATION WHETHER OR NOT BOYD ANDERSEN CAN BE ON THE CITY'S LIST AND IF THEY CAN'T FIND A WAY. BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY THE SOLUTION IS WE NEED TO HELP POINT BLANK PERIOD. YOUR OPINION IS NOTED HOWEVER POINT BLANK PERIOD HAS A COMMA OR A SEMICOLON BECAUSE SOME THINGS ARE NOT AS CUT AND DRY AND IN ORDER TO IN ORDER TO BE TRYING TO GET SOMETHING WHERE WE CAN GET IT ON WEDNESDAYS OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT IN AN ATTEMPT TO HELP YOU GET TO WEDNESDAY'S MEETING WITH BOYD ANDERSON ON THERE WAS A REASON FOR THAT EASIER ACCESS REQUEST BUT YOU FAILED TO DO THAT TO APPRECIATE IT YOU'RE AT THIS POINT IN TIME FUMING THAT ON WEDNESDAY IT IS TIME SENSITIVE. YOU'RE ASSUMING THAT THIS TIME I WAS TRYING TO HELP YOU. WHAT I SAID MUST NOT HAVE TO BE A BATTLE MISS. COMMISSIONER BOLTON IT'S NOT A BATTLE. IT'S NOT A BATTLE. I GOT THIS I GOT IN TIME NOW. WEST POINT IN TIME THOUGH I'M NOT THERE USUALLY HAS TO BE CONSENSUS ON WHETHER OR NOT WE WANT

[03:35:03]

SOMETHING TO BE MOVE FORWARD IN THAT RESPECT IN MY CORRECT CITY ATTORNEY. THE COMMISSION ACTS IN THIS REGARD TO WORKSHOP SESSION JUST TO READ JUST TO RESTATE THE OBVIOUS WHICH IS YOU'RE NOT IN A REGULAR MEETING OF THE CITY COMMISSION OR A SPECIAL MEETING OR YOU CAN DO IS HAVE CONSENSUS OF ANY KIND. IF ARE EMOTIONS BROUGHT FORTH LEGALLY AND APPROPRIATELY UNDER THE CITY COMMISSION AGENDA THEN BY MOTION BY ACTION OF THE MAJORITY THE COMMISSION YOU CAN TAKE PHYSICAL LEGAL ACTION. TODAY IS JUST SIMPLY A CONSENSUS BASED CONVERSATION. THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE DOING. SO BASICALLY AT THIS TIME I WILL JUST PULL IT ON THE BROAD SCOPE OF MY COMMISSION AS A BROAD SCOPE IS FINE AND I MAY HAVE JUST TO QUICKLY FOR HISTORICAL PURPOSES I MADE SOME NOTES DURING TODAY'S DISCUSSION. BUT BACK IN THE DAY PREVIOUS COMMISSIONERS USED TO HAVE WHAT WAS CALLED AN EXPRESSION OF INTEREST WHICH IS NOTHING DIFFERENT BY THE WAY THAN A AN UNOFFICIAL MOTION AND AGAINST CONSENSUS BASED DISCUSSION. THAT'S KIND OF WHAT YOU'RE HAVING TODAY AS WELL. IT'S JUST IT'S JUST YOUR YOUR COLLECTIVE CONVERSATION. NO MOTIONS CAN BE TAKEN IF THE COMMISSION TAKES IT UP IN A REGULAR SPECIAL MEETING THAT'S A DIFFERENT ISSUE. LIKE CONSENSUS TRYING TO GET THERE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. CONSENSUS IS DIFFERENT. YOU ARE NOT A CHAIR BELIEVE IT OR NOT. SO ANYWAY I AM GOING HOME AND ABROAD. BUT SURE I LIKE DOING HER JOB THAT COMMISSION THE MAYOR IS ACTUALLY TRYING TO GET A SENTENCE OUT. SO BASICALLY TAKING AGAIN AS I STATED EARLIER ON THE BROAD STROKES. WILL YOU PLEASE LET US KNOW IF IT GOES THROUGH THE COMMISSIONERS CONSENSUS WHETHER OR NOT SCHOOL ANY SCHOOL UNDER BROWARD COUNTY IS ALLOWED TO BE PUT UNDER OUR CHARITABLE LIST ARE TERRIBLE THOSE INVOLVED YOU SHOULD LET US UNDER BROWARD COUNTY ETHICS RULES. AND IF WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DO IT AS A DISTRICT BECAUSE IT IS A DISTRICT BODY WHAT ARE THE AVENUES IN WHICH THEY ARE ABLE TO BE PUT ON A LIST. IF THIS COMMISSION IS TO CHOOSE TO PUT THEM I ONLY HAVE ONE LIST MADAM. IT'S YOUR LIST THE CITY'S LIST. MR. FISHMAN DO YOU AGREE TO THAT. YES COMMISSIONER GALEN. YEAH. I BELIEVE ALL SCHOOLS TAKE IT AS A YES OR NO PLACE. JUST YES OR NO. THANK YOU. YES.

VICE MAYOR MR. BOLTON. YES. THANK YOU. YOU HAVE A CONSENSUS OF THE FIVE OF US. PLEASE MAKE EVERYTHING COMPLICATED. PLEASE REVIEW AND GET BACK TO US. WELL THANK YOU. IT IS 217. UNLESS THERE'S ANYTHING ELSE THAT IS GONNA BE POPPING UP AS QUICKLY THAT AMERICA MAY THERE'LL BE AN ORDINANCE ON THE AGENDA ON WEDNESDAY WITH REGARD TO THE MEMBERSHIP AND COMPOSITION OF THE PLANNING BOARD THAT WAS DISCUSSED DURING YOUR WORKSHOP MEETING THAT DID NOT ATTEND. WE DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO GET IT UNDER THE WIRE FOR DELIVERY TO YOU IN TIME BUT IT WILL WALK IT WE'LL WALK IT THROUGH AND DELIVER IT BETWEEN NOW AND WEDNESDAY WHICH IS THE COMPOSITION QUESTION. IT'LL BE ON FOR FIRST READING. FIRST READING THANK YOU VERY MUCH. CITY MANAGER NOTHING MORE I CAN BACK IT UP. IT'S IN PREPARATION RIGHT. IT IS TO 18. EVERYBODY ENJOY THE REST OF MONDAY. SEE YOU ON WEDNESDAY. THANK YOU.
