MY MY GOOD FRIEND RYAN PETTY AND I HAVE LISTENED TO TESTIMONY ABOUT THE RADIO FAILURES WE'VE BEEN INVESTIGATING THIS TRAGEDY FOR THE LAST 17 MONTHS AFTER OUR CHILDREN WERE MURDERED. I'M ACTUALLY RYAN'S DAUGHTER ELAINA AND LORI'S YOU KNOW OR HIS DAUGHTER ALYSSA AND MY SON ALEX RAWL IN ENGLISH CLASS SITTING THERE WHEN THE MURDERER SLAUGHTERED THEM SITTING IN ENGLISH CLASS WORKING ON THEIR ENGLISH PAPERS. THE REASON THIS NEEDS TO GET FIXED AND THE REASON WHY WE'RE HERE THANKING YOU IS BECAUSE WHEN LAW ENFORCEMENT RESPONDED THERE WERE SO MANY. EVERYBODY'S ON THE SYSTEM THE SYSTEM THROTTLED. MOTOROLA HAS A SAFETY MECHANISM IT'S CALLED THROTTLING SELF THERE'S TOO MANY PEOPLE ON THE SYSTEM. IT BASICALLY SHUTS DOWN SO WHEN YOU PUSH THE THE PDT BUTTON THE PUSH TO TALK BUTTON YOU BASICALLY GET YOU'RE NOT ABLE TO COMMUNICATE AT ALL IT'S JUST A LOOP AND THEN. SO LAW ENFORCEMENT COULD NOT COMMUNICATE. YOU DIDN'T HAVE YOU KNOW CORAL SPRINGS WAS NOT ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH BROWARD SHERIFF'S OFFICE. AND THEN WHEN WE HAD SWAT THAT WAS TRYING TO CLEAR THE BUILDING THEY COULD NOT COMMUNICATE.

THEY HAD TO USE RUNNERS IN USE HAND SIGNALS SO EACH OTHER'S THEY DIDN'T SHOOT AND KILL EACH OTHER. SO THIS IS A PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE. THIS HAPPENED AT THE AIRPORT IT HAPPENED IN PARKLAND IT CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTY. WE LIVE IN A DANGEROUS WORLD. AND THIS IS GOING TO MAKE OUR COUNTY SAFER SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

MORE GUN IS NOW EXITING. MR. BETTY HI GOOD EVENING MAYOR. VICE FARE COMMISSIONERS IT'S A PLEASURE TO BE HERE TONIGHT I WANT TO ADD TO THE COMMENTS THAT YOU'VE HEARD THE NAME PLEASE. I'M SORRY.

WE ARE MAX TALKED ELOQUENTLY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED

[00:45:07]

AT STONEMAN DOUGLAS BUT WE ARE JUST ONE BREAKDOWN OF THE SYSTEM. WE CANNOT GET SPARE PARTS ANYMORE FOR THE RADIO SYSTEM THAT'S IN PLACE TODAY SO SOMETHING BREAKS. WE CAN'T TURN IT BACK ON WERE LITERALLY ONE SPARE PART. WE USED TO BUY PARTS ON EBAY. THAT'S HOW OLD THE SYSTEM IS AND NOW WE CAN'T EVEN GET THE PARTS ON EBAY. SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP. THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME COME UP AND TALK ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS FOR ALL THE RESIDENTS OF BROWARD COUNTY. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. IS THERE ANYONE ELSE. REMEMBER WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY ANYTHING NOT TO PUT YOU ON THE SPOT BUT OK SEEING THAT THERE'S NO ONE HERE. THEY HAVE THE COUNTY THAT WOULD LIKE TO SAY ANYTHING I HAVE A LIST OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE SIGNED IN FOR PUBLIC SPEAKING. I'M GOING TO GO THROUGH THEM AND IF I SAY YOUR NAME AND YOU'RE NOT HERE TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM I'LL ASK THAT YOU WAIT. WE'LL COME AROUND AND HAVE PUBLIC SPEAKING AFTERWARDS. AND IF YOU HAVE NOT SIGNED UP AFTER I'M DONE WITH EVERYBODY WHO I'LL GO THROUGH HERE I WILL ASK YOU TO COME COME UP. SO I HAVE JOE LEWIS AND JOANNE AMIEL. DAVID A ROSENZWEIG. AND THIS ITEM ROBERT ALFONZO KAREN CAPUTO IF YOU WOULD PLEASE COME UP THE NEXT PERSON I HAVE ON THE LIST IS ALEX BROWN. I ALSO SEE WITH THE HOLLYWOOD ADDRESS SO IF YOU WILL BE READY IN FOR AFTER MR. BUDA. YOU NAME AND ADDRESS PLEASE FOR THE RECORD IF YOU WOULD PLEASE. MS CAPUTO. MS CAPUTO IF YOU WOULD PLEASE COME TO THIS MICROPHONE. I APPRECIATE IT. OK. THANK YOU. YES PLEASE ACCEPT. I. MY NAME IS KAREN CAPUTO AND I'M A RESIDENT OF HOLLYWOOD AND I'M HERE TO TELL YOU WHY HOLLYWOOD IS FIGHTING SO HARD TO KEEP THIS TOWER OUT OF WESTLAKE PARK. THE DOCUMENT YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU IS THE FIRST DOCUMENT THAT WAS WRITTEN BY OUR MAYOR BACK IN 1974 WHEN HE MADE AN APPEAL TO THE PUBLIC FOR ASSISTANCE IN GETTING FUNDING GETTING ZONING AND GETTING DEED RESTRICTIONS GETTING COVENANTS GETTING THE CHARTER TO PROTECT THE PARK. AND IT IS A BEAUTIFUL DOCUMENT. IT IS A WORK OF ART. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU ALL REMEMBER JOHN WILLIAMS BUT JOHN WILLIAMS WAS OUR MAYOR AT THE TIME AND IT TOOK DECADES TO GET US WHERE WE ARE. WITH THE PRESERVATION IN THIS PARK. IT'S SEVEN PAGES AND IT'S WELL WORTH READING SO IF YOU HAVE TIME LATER ON I WOULD LIKE YOU TO READ IT ALL AND I THINK IT'S A VALUE AND YOU MIGHT WANT TO HAND IT TO OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE ENVIRONMENTALISTS. BUT I WILL READ TWO PARAGRAPHS ON PAGE THREE PARAGRAPH FIVE.

THE MOST IMPORTANT REASON TO HAVE HOPE THAT WESLEY CAN BE SAVED IS THE EVER INCREASING AWARENESS OF THE PEOPLE PARTICULARLY IN SOUTH FLORIDA THAT AREAS SUCH AS THIS ARE VITAL TO THEIR OWN FUTURE HAPPINESS THAT MANKIND CANNOT SUSTAIN ITSELF UNDER THE STRESS OF URBANIZED LIVING WELL DRAWING ON THE PEACE THAT COMES FROM SHARING HIS WORLD WITH THE OTHER CREATURES IN GOD'S KINGDOM GRADUALLY HE HAS BEEN LEARNING THAT EVEN IN AN URBAN EXISTENCE HE CAN NO SOLACE AND CONTENTMENT IF ONLY HE CAN TOUCH UPON THE FRINGE OF SUCH A WILDERNESS AS THIS AND PERHAPS INTRUDE QUIETLY WITHIN IT THERE AGAIN TO GAIN A GLIMPSE OF HIS BEGINNINGS. THIS IS JOHN WILLIAMS VOICE. ALL THESE LITTLE SCRIBBLINGS ON THIS OR JOHN WILLIAMS SCRIBBLINGS EXCEPT. ON PAGE SIX WHERE. I PUT A LITTLE ARROW ON THE SECOND TO THE LAST PARAGRAPH AND I THINK HE WROTE THIS FOR US. AND I THINK THIS DOCUMENT CAME DOWN TO ME FOR THIS DAY. AND HE SAID I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT ALL OF YOU TO WHOM THIS PETITION IS ADDRESSED WILL GIVE IT YOUR UTMOST CONSIDERATION AND ATTEMPT TO MEASURE THE VALUE OF THIS WESTLAKE AREA NOT ONLY AS IT APPEARS TODAY BUT AS IT COULD APPEAR TO THOSE LIVING IN SOUTHEAST FLORIDA TWENTY FIVE YEARS FROM TODAY AND HOPEFULLY THERE WILL BE LEADERS AMONG YOU WHO WILL COME FORTH TO HELP ORGANIZE AND CONCENTRATE THE EFFORTS NECESSARY TO MAKE THIS DREAM A REALITY. HE LIVED TO SEE THIS DREAM A REALITY. HE PASSED A YEAR AGO I RECEIVED THIS DOCUMENT BECAUSE OF WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING WITH MY LIFE AND HOW I HAVE BEEN ADVOCATING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT IN HOLLYWOOD FLORIDA. I WILL SAY THIS TO YOU WITH ALL THE GOODWILL I COUNT IN MY

[00:50:01]

HEART. NOBODY IN THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD WOULD SUPPORT THE COUNTY IN DOING SOMETHING IN TAMARACK THAT YOU WOULD NOT WANT. SO PLEASE WHEN YOU CONSIDER THIS.

CONSIDER THAT WE HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE. WE'VE ALWAYS HAD AN ALTERNATIVE. THE EXPERTS REPORT SAID THAT IT IS P. 25 QUALIFIED. IT ALSO SAYS THAT BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE TO RAISE A TOWER IN AN ESTUARINE AREA THAT IT CAN BE DONE EARLIER THAN THAT THAT WE ARE NOT THE ONES THAT ARE DELAYING THIS PROJECT. WE HAVE NOT BEEN WE HAVE FOUGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS. AND IF THAT'S WRONG. WELL THEN SO BE IT. AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE HERE THAT I AM SORRY FOR ANYBODY'S LOSS. I AM SORRY FOR ANYBODY'S LOSS OF A CHILD THROUGH ANY CANCER OR THROUGH ANY DISASTER. BUT THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE. AND WE'RE NOT HOLDING THIS UP BY ANY MEANS. THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I'M GOING TO ASK IF THE COUNTY HAS ANYTHING IT WISHES TO SAY AT THIS TIME OR DO YOU WISH TO RESPOND AFTERWARDS. I HAVE MR. BROWN ALEX BROWN. MR. BROWN YOUR NAME AND I JUST PLACE FOR THE RECORD. THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. MY NAME IS ALEX BROWN SAID NOT A RIVER BIRD STREET HOLLYWOOD FLORIDA 3 3 0 1 9. FIRST I WANT TO START BY SAYING I'M POPPY 25. EVERYONE AT THE CITY COMMISSION IS PRO P 25. EVERY GROUP IN HOLLYWOOD THAT IS TRYING TO PUT THIS IN THE PROPER PLACE IS PRO P 25. BACK IN NOVEMBER OF 18 WE SELECTED THE CIRQUE THE CIRQUE. WE GOT OUR OWN EXPERT THE EXPERT SAID YES IT WORKS. LET'S PUT ON TOP OF CIRQUE. THAT COUNTY HAS BEEN DELAYING THIS SINCE NOVEMBER. I DIDN'T DO NOT LIKE THE MISINFORMATION I'VE BEEN HEARING HERE WAS ALSO VERY UNUSUAL IS TAMARACK BUYING A HOLLYWOOD PARK FOR FIVE YEARS GUARANTEED TO THEN KIND OF SLIP IT BACK TO THE COUNTY. IT SOUNDS. REALLY UNDER THE TABLE AND THAT IS TRULY HOW MOST PEOPLE ARE VIEWING THIS. TWENTY 25 WORKS AS FAR AS COVERAGE RADIO COVERAGE. IT WORKS ON TOP OF CIRQUE AND THEY'VE SELECTED THIS SINCE NOVEMBER. THIS IS NOT ABOUT P. 25. THIS IS ABOUT THE COUNTY RIGHT NOW DOING A VERY STRANGE LAND SWAP. AND I KNOW YOU PROBABLY TODAY DID RECEIVE SOME PAPER FROM OUR ATTORNEY. AND BASICALLY THE MESSAGE I'M TRYING TO HAVE RIGHT NOW IS VERY CLEAR THIS IS PROBABLY IS IS AN OPPORTUNITY RIGHT NOW TO TAKE A BREATHER FOR A WEEK OR TWO AND TO SAY WE'RE ALL PRO P. 25 WE'RE ALL TRYING TO GET SOLUTIONS BUT PLEASE BE VERY CLEAR THIS IS A SITUATION WHERE RIGHT NOW WE'RE TRYING TO AMICABLY WORK OUT BETWEEN THE COUNTY AND THE CITY PRIOR TO LITIGATION.

AND OBVIOUSLY IF THINGS DON'T GO WELL IT'S KIND OF GO ANOTHER ROUTE AND YOU POSSIBLY DON'T WANT TO STEP IN THAT BUCKET TODAY. I WANT TO GO BACK TWO MONTHS TWO MONTHS AGO THE CITY ENTERED INTO A GOOD FAITH AGREEMENT WITH THE COUNTY THEY ENTERED INTO AN L.A. PROBABLY SIMILAR TO WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT ENTERING INTO. THEY ALSO ENTERED INTO THE 164 BOTH OF THOSE WERE BASED ON INCORRECT INFORMATION DUE TO OMISSIONS NOT PROVIDED BY THE COUNTY. SO YOU RIGHT NOW MIGHT BE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION WITH THE COUNTY MAY NOT HAVE EVEN GIVEN YOU ALL THE INFORMATION LIKE THEY DIDN'T GIVE IT TO THE CITY AND THOSE AGREEMENTS CAN BE VOIDED BECAUSE OF MISINFORMATION. THERE'S SOME REAL PROBLEMS GOING ON. WE'RE NOT SAYING WE'RE A.P.

TWENTY FIVE WE'RE NOT SAYING NEVER DO IT IF WE CAN'T COME TO A GREAT AGREEMENT. I REALLY SUGGEST THE NEXT ONE OR TWO WEEKS JUST TABLING IT. LET'S SEE IF THEY CAN COME TO AN AGREEMENT PRIOR TO ALL THE EXPENSES AND ALL THE HUGE DELAYS IN THE POTENTIAL FUTURE. WE'RE REALLY LIKE WE'RE TRYING TO FINISH THIS OFF QUICKLY LIKE WE TRIED TO FINISH OFF IN NOVEMBER. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE CITY HAS BEEN PRO P. 25 AND THEY HAVE SOMETHING THAT WORKS. THIS IS THIS IS NOT ABOUT P. 25 OR PARKLAND OR ANY OF THAT STUFF. THIS IS A VERY STRANGE LAND SWAP AND YOU'RE GETTING INVOLVED IN IT POSSIBLY NOT WITH ALL THAT SAME INFORMATION THAT YOU NEED JUST LIKE THE CITY DIDN'T GET ALL THE INFORMATION FROM THE COUNTY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I KNOW THAT VICE MAYOR TRACY CLARK IS HERE FROM THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD. WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEAK. GOOD EVENING. MAYOR COMMISSIONER'S RESIDENCE.

[00:55:06]

COUNTY COMMISSIONERS VICE MAYOR. CAN YOU PLEASE EXCUSE ME I'M JUST GONNA GET MY THOUGHTS TOGETHER HERE. SO AT OUR CITY COMMISSION MEETING YOUR CITY COMMISSION EACH EVENING THIS EVENING YOU'LL BE CONSIDERING THE APPROVAL OF THE ITEM THAT IS BEFORE YOU THE SWAPPING AND LEASING OF LAND IN THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD RELATED TO THE PROPOSED SITE OF THE 9 11 COMMUNICATIONS TOWER. YOU ARE PROBABLY WELL AWARE OVER THE PAST YEAR THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN HIGHLY DEBATED AND DIFFICULT AND VERY CONCERNING PRIORITY FOR THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND ITS RESIDENTS. IN THIS ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE AREA OF WESTLAKE DESPITE ONE OR TWO BRIEFINGS PASSING REFERENCE IN THE PAST YEAR WITH NO DETAILS AND NO EXPLANATION. THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD ONLY LEARNED OF THE ACTUAL PROPOSAL TO SWAP AND LEASE BACK THE SAME DISPUTED SITE IN OUR JURISDICTION BY BROWARD COUNTY WITH THE CITY OF TAMARACK. BE A NEWSPAPER ARTICLE. WE THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES AND OUR RESIDENTS OF THE CITY. ASK YOU AS FELLOW PUBLIC SERVANTS TO PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT. STOP PLACE YOURSELVES IN OUR POSITIONS AS ELECTED OFFICIALS AND RELATE TO HOW YOU WOULD FEEL IF THIS CITY IF THIS SITUATION SUDDENLY OCCURRED TO YOU. THE CITY OF TAMARACK HOW WOULD YOUR RESIDENTS FEEL ABOUT ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE LAND IN TAMARACK BEING SWAPPED AWAY AND THEN LEASED BACK TO THE OWNERSHIP AND CONTROL OF ANOTHER CITY. HOW WOULD YOU FEEL AS AN ELECTED PUBLIC OFFICIAL OF YOUR CITY THAT RECEIVED LITTLE TO NO DISCLOSURE OF THE DETAILS IN ADVANCE FROM BROWARD COUNTY. ADDITIONALLY HOW WOULD YOU APPRECIATE. AND THEN WE COULD BE REQUIRED TO EXPLAIN TO YOUR RESIDENTS THAT THE CITY OF TAMARACK WAS NOT AFFORDED THE SAME LAND SWAP BACK OR THE OPPORTUNITY FOR LAND IN YOUR JURISDICTION WE THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES AND RESIDENTS OF THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD CAN ASSURE YOU THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES AND RESIDENTS OF THE CITY OF TAMARACK IS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE AND REMEMBER INAPPROPRIATE SITUATION. THIS HAS CREATED FOR ALL OF US A SITUATION THAT DOES NOT REPRESENT THE QUALITY OF ETHICAL GOVERNING AND REPRESENTATION SHOULD BE ALLOWED FOR ALL OF US HERE IN BROWARD COUNTY WHAT CAN BE DONE TO CORRECT THIS INAPPROPRIATE SITUATION RESPECTFULLY OUR REQUEST IS A SIMPLE ONE PLEASE DEFERRED ACTION TO THIS AGENDA ITEM TONIGHT UNTIL YOUR NEXT MEETING TO ALLOW THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND BROWARD COUNTY TO WORK AS PARTNERS AND PROVIDE US THE OPPORTUNITY FOR ONE LAST CONSIDERATION OF THE ALTERNATIVE SITE FOR OUR TOWER THAT WILL BE PROVIDED FOR ALL OF BROWARD COUNTY. WE BELIEVE YOU AND YOUR RESIDENTS WOULD WANT THE SAME OPPORTUNITY. WE UNDERSTAND THAT SERIOUS NESS AND THE IMPORTANCE OF PLACING THIS TOWER CIRQUE GIVES US THAT OPPORTUNITY NOT JUST FOR THE RESIDENTS OF HOLLYWOOD BUT FOR ALL OF BROWARD COUNTY AND IT PROVIDES BETTER COVERAGE FOR ALL OF US. IT IS VERY HARD FOR ME TO COME AND SPEAK TO EACH OF YOU TODAY TO PLAY OUR KEY CASE OR TO EXPRESS OUR CONCERNS BUT WE BY NO MEANS WANT TO DELAY ANY SAFETY FOR ANY RESIDENT BARBARA COUNTY BUT WE FEEL THAT WE HAVE PROVIDED A SOLUTION TO A PROBLEM AND WE ARE ASKING FOR CONSIDERATION TO POSTPONE LET THINGS WORK ITSELF OUT WITHIN THE NEXT WEEK WITH THE COUNTY THAT WE CAN PARTNER AND TRY TO COME UP WITH A BETTER SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM AND GET THE BALL ROLLING. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERATION. AND WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO MOVING FORWARD ON THIS. THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH VICE MAYOR AT THIS TIME I AM SEEING RESIDENTS THAT ARE HERE FROM TAMARACK MR. GRAFF NETS ARE YOU HERE FOR. DO YOU WISH TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM OR IS IT ANOTHER ITEM THAT YOU WISH TO SPEAK SAME FROM MRS. GOVERNOR. OKAY. AND I HAVE LS DON SKI OR ELIAS IS THAT FOR THE NEXT ITEM OR IS IT FOR THE HOLLYWOOD ITEM. DO YOU WISH TO SPEAK ON THE HOLLYWOOD MATTER OR DO YOU WISH TO SPEAK ON ANOTHER ITEM. YOU SAY THAT ONE MORE

[01:00:07]

TIME PLEASE. THIS ITEM APPEAR FOR HOLLYWOOD. YES PLEASE COME TO THE PODIUM JUST FOR THE RECORD. MY NAME IS ELLIS DON SKI. I LIVE AT 70 715 SOUTH HAMPTON TERRORISTS AND TAMARACK. AND I'VE BEEN OUT OF TOWN FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS. BUT IN TODAY'S PAPER APPARENTLY THE CITY COUNTY FEUD COULD SLOW THE 911 RESPONSE UPDATE WAS IN TODAY'S PAPER. SO I'M HERE REALLY ONLY TO ADDRESS ALTERNATIVES FOR THE TOWERS NOW APPARENTLY THE MINETTI WHO IS THE CONSULTANT IN HAS DEEMED THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE 15 OR 16 TOWERS SPREAD AROUND THE COUNTY TO BETTER TRANSMIT THE SIGNALS. AND OF COURSE THE PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY SPOKEN ABOUT THE POOR EQUIPMENT.

SO ON TOP OF THAT YOU SHOULD BE AWARE THAT RADIO SIGNALS TEND TO STRIKE TRAVEL IN A STRAIGHT LINE. BUT BECAUSE OF THE CURVATURE OF THE EARTH THESE SIGNALS WILL GO OUT IN THE SPACE. THAT'S WHY YOU NEED ANOTHER TOWER TO PICK UP THE SIGNAL. AND IF YOU LOOK AROUND YOU'LL SEE ALL THIS. THE CELL PHONE TOWERS THAT ARE OUT THERE.

OKAY MY ALTERNATIVE IS TO SPEAK ABOUT ONLY THE TOWERS THEMSELVES AND APPARENTLY IF THE PARK PROBLEM DOESN'T GET RESOLVED I'M SUGGESTING THAT CONSIDERATION BE GIVEN TO A SITE NEXT TO THE HOLLYWOOD WATER TOWER THE WATER TANK YOU KNOW THAT ELEVATED TANK IN THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD. HAVE YOU SEEN IT. IT'S A MONSTER. IF YOU PUT A TOWER NEXT TO IT NO ONE SHOULD COMPLAIN AT ALL BECAUSE THE TOWER WILL LOOK LIKE A TOOTHPICK COMPARED TO THE WATER TOWER ITSELF. THE OTHER ALTERNATIVE AND I'M NOT MAKING A JOKE ABOUT THIS THE OTHER ALTERNATIVE I'M THINKING OF WOULD BE GO TO THE PEOPLE THAT RUN HIGH ROCK. HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW GUITAR HOTEL. IT'S A IT'S FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY FEET HIGH. FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY FEET HIGH. I'M ONLY SUGGESTING AS A WILD THOUGHT. TO GO TO THE. HARD ROCK PEOPLE. AND ASKED IF YOU COULD POSSIBLY USE PART OF A HOTEL AS A SITE FOR SOME OF THE TRANSMISSION RELAYS FOR. THE WHOLE SYSTEM. IT'S IT'S A WILD THOUGHT BUT IT MAY WORK ALL FROM A MILLION DOLLARS FOR TEN YEARS. IT WOULD ONLY COST ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND A YEAR TO MAINTAIN IT. I'M SURE THEY LIKE THE MONEY. IN TEN YEARS THE WHATEVER SYSTEM THEY'RE USING NOW I MEAN WHATEVER SYSTEM THE COUNTY IS GOING TO BE USING WILL BE OBSOLETE ANYWAY. SO YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING ELSE. HOPEFULLY BY THEN YOU'LL HAVE A SATELLITE RELAY INSTEAD OF TOWERS FOR TRANSMISSION OF POLICE SIGNALS. THAT'S MY STORY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. LANSKY. ALL RIGHT IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE IN THE AUDIENCE THAT WISHES TO SPEAK ON THIS MATTER. OK. IF YOU WOULD LET'S TRY TO COME ONE AT A TIME. NAME AND I JUST PLEASE FOR THE RECORD. GOOD EVENING MAYOR. VICE MAYOR ATTORNEY AND CITY MANAGER. MY NAME IS DOUG YOUNG. I'M TAMARA RESIDENT I LIVE AT 1 0 8 7 1 WEST CLAREMONT CIRCLE IN KINGS POINT. IT'S VERY

[01:05:04]

DIFFICULT FOR ME TO TALK RIGHT NOW BECAUSE OF THE CONNECTIONS THAT I HAVE TO REPRESENT THE NONPROFIT. AND I HAVE ANOTHER CONNECTION SORT OF RELATED TO THE COUNTY. SO I'M HERE AS A PRIVATE CITIZEN BUT ACTUALLY MAYOR. YOU MET ME A FEW YEARS AGO AT MILLENNIUM MIDDLE SCHOOL. AND SO THE WORK THAT I DO IN THE COUNTY AND ACTUALLY COMMISSIONER HOMELESS HAS MET ME A NUMBER OF TIMES. HE DOESN'T KNOW ME BUT HE'S SEEN ME AT THE COMMISSION CHAMBER BECAUSE I'VE RECEIVED PROCLAMATIONS FOR WORK THAT I CONSERVATION WORK THAT I DO ANYWAY. SO I'M TOTALLY FOR THE TOWER. I TOTALLY BELIEVE IN EVERYTHING THAT IT DOES. AND YOU KNOW I FEEL FOR EVERYBODY FROM 9/11 TO MARJORY STONEMAN DOUGLAS AND ALL THE TRAGEDIES THAT WE'VE HAD. BUT IT'S THE LOCATION. AND SO I'M GOING TO MAKE IT REAL SHORT. THE LOCATION IS NOT THE BEST LOCATION. I'M VERY FAMILIAR WITH THE AREA. I WON'T GO INTO DETAILS BUT BECAUSE I DO CONSERVATION WORK I'M EXTREMELY FAMILIAR IT ALSO HAPPENS TO BE A FLOOD AREA AND THAT WHOLE AREA. IT MAY NOT BE DETAILED BUT I'VE BEEN AROUND THERE RIGHT ON SHERATON ACROSS THE STREET AND CALLED NATURE CENTER. WHEN YOU CAN'T EVEN DRIVE ON THAT STREET AND THIS GOES BACK A FEW YEARS EVEN BEFORE SEA LEVEL RISE AND CAPE TIDE AND ALL THAT KIND OF THING. SO FROM THAT POINT OF VIEW IT'S NOT SUITABLE BUT I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT THE OTHER YOU KNOW CONSERVATION OR ENVIRONMENTAL REASONS. SO THAT'S REALLY IT. THERE WERE ALTERNATIVES THAT THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD HAD AND THE ONLY THING I WANT TO SAY WITHOUT PUTTING MY FOOT IN MY MOUTH IS THAT. I DON'T BELIEVE THIS IS TOTALLY ON THE TABLE NOT FROM YOUR POINT OF VIEW BUT FROM THE TOTAL POINT OF VIEW BETWEEN THE COUNTY AND HOLLYWOOD AND THE CONSULTANTS AND ALL THAT SORT OF THING. SO THERE ARE ALTERNATIVES AND THERE'S ALREADY BEEN IN OPERATION ACTUALLY BUT. SO THAT'S BASICALLY IT. I DON'T I DON'T SUPPORT THE LOCATION. JUST I THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I GUESS PLACE IS. WHERE. COMMISSION IS. GOOD EVENING. CAN WE HAVE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS. I'M SORRY. CAN WE HAVE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS PLEASE FOR THE RECORD. MY NAME. YES PLEASE MY NAME IS CHARLOTTE ROTH AND I'M A HOMEOWNER AND WESTLAKE VILLAGE I AM DEAF. SO IF YOU TALK TO ME I MAY NOT UNDERSTAND MY JAW SET. I WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT HISTORY. THE QUESTION HAS BEEN WHICH IS BEST WESTLAKE PARK OR THE SHARK HOTEL. THE QUESTION SHOULD BE WHICH SIDE IS LEGALLY AVAILABLE. AND THE PARK IS NOT LEGALLY AVAILABLE. IN 1978 THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND BROWARD COUNTY PURCHASED THE MELA TRACT. THAT'S THE AREA WHERE THE TOWER IS SCHEDULED TO GO. THIS WAS A PARTIAL OF 84 A GIRTH AND ADDITIONAL PROPERTY PREVIOUSLY PURCHASED FOR A TOTAL OF NINETY FIVE ACRES. IT IS NOW REFERRED TO AS THE NINETY FIVE ACRE TRACT THE TRACT WAS TO BE USED FOR. PARK CULTURAL AND RECREATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. AND COBE WAS A COUNTY COMMISSIONER IN 1978 AND IT AVID ENVIRONMENTALIST AND SHE PUSH TO SAVE THE MANGROVES ON THE FLORIDA COAST. SHE SAID AT THE TIME THAT THE PURCHASE WAS MADE THAT NO ONE. THE REASON THEY MADE THE

[01:10:04]

PURCHASE IN THE LAND WAS SO THAT NO ONE WOULD EVER BUILD THEIR SHE SAID WHEN YOU BUILD UP LAND PROPERTY THE WETLANDS DETERIORATE UNTIL THEY ARE NO LONGER ENVIRONMENTALLY VALUABLE. FOR ELEVEN YEARS AFTER THE 1978 PURCHASE THE CAMPAIGN TO SAVE AS MUCH OF THE MANGROVES AS POSSIBLE CONTINUED. AND FINALLY IN 1985. THE COUNTY AND THE STATE THROUGH A MITIGATION PROCESS PURCHASED THE WEST LAKE TRACT FROM HOLLYWOOD. THERE IS SUFFICIENT DOCUMENTATION TO SUPPORT THE ARGUMENT THAT THE ORIGINAL 1978 PURCHASE WAS INCORPORATED INTO THE 1985 FIVE. THE NINETY FIVE ACRE TRACT AND THE WEST LAKE TRACT. THEN BECAME LESS LIKE PARK AND THE 97 1978 DEED WAS AMENDED. AT THAT POINT BASED UPON DOCUMENTATION AND OTHER INFORMATION THAT WE KNOW THAT THE 1985 DEED HAS RESTRICTIONS THE COUNTY CLAIMS IT DOESN'T HAVE THE DEED THE 1985 DEED HAS DISAPPEARED BUT WE HAVE A QUICK CLAY MDT FROM 1978 IN NINETEEN NINETY THREE THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND BROWARD COUNTY AGREED TO EXCHANGE PROPERTY PURCHASED IN 1978 TO ALLOW BROWARD COUNTY TO OBTAIN MORE ACRES INCLUDING MILLER LAKE. FOR THE ENHANCEMENT OF WEST LAKE PARK. HOLLYWOOD RECEIVED AN APPROXIMATE 20 ACRES TRACT IN EXCHANGE BROWARD COUNTY WAS MAKING IMPROVEMENTS TO WESTLAKE PARK AND DESIRE TO INCORPORATE THE EXISTING LAKE EXCUSE ME INTO THE PARK SITE. THIS WAS. THE FIRST AMENDMENT OF THE 1978 QUIT CLAIM TO EACH AND IN NINETEEN AND NINETEEN NINETY THREE I'M SORRY IN NINETEEN NINETY FIVE THE MLA TRACK LEASE AGREEMENT TO MICHAEL SWERDLOW COMPANY AS A DEVELOPER. WAS SIGNED AND THE 1978 PURCHASE WAS INCORPORATED INTO THE NINETEEN NINETY FIVE EXCHANGE DEED. THAT DATE IS MISSING TOO SO QUIT CLAIM DEED THE COUNTY WILL GIVE YOU WHEN YOU TAKE POSSESSION OF THE PARK IS NOT A VALID DEED THEY ARE GIVING YOU THE ORIGINAL 1978 DEED. THEY ARE NOT GIVING YOU THE 1985 DATE CLOSER TIES DISAPPEAR. THEY ARE NOT GIVING YOU THE NINETEEN NINETY FIVE DAYS BECAUSE IT HAS DISAPPEAR. WE HAVE BEEN DOING PUBLIC SEARCHES WE'VE HAD EXPERTS TO PUBLIC SEARCHES AND THE COUNTY DOES NOT HAVE ITS OWN DATE. MAYBE BECAUSE IT HAS THE RESTRICTIONS SPECIFY THE COUNTY HAS DENIED ALL OF THIS. WE HAVE ENOUGH DOCUMENTATION TO PROVE THIS IS TRUE. WE ALSO KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT SOME INFORMATION GIVEN TO US BUT HE'S HAD DOZENS OF RESTRICTIONS. AND AS ADAM COLE POINTED THERE SHOULD BE NO BUILDING ON WHAT IT'S LIKE TO PARK. THANK YOU VERY MUCH LIKE DAVE AND GENTLEMEN OUR NEXT SPEAKER FOR PRESIDENTS COMING UP. GOOD EVENING MAYOR VICE MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LOVING US TO SPEAK. MY NAME IS LISA STING GONI. I LIVE IN WESTLAKE VILLAGE AS WELL. I'M SORRY MA'AM CAN YOU PLEASE SPEAK A LITTLE CLEARER. OK. MY NAME IS LISA AUSTIN GONI. I LIVE IN WESTLAKE VILLAGE. I WAS SAYING THANK YOU FOR

[01:15:05]

ALLOWING ME TO SPEAK. I'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS PROJECT FOR QUITE A WHILE AND LAST FRIDAY WHEN WE READ THE NEWSPAPER ARTICLE ABOUT THIS EXCHANGE AND LAND SWITCH WITH TAMARACK WE WERE ALL VERY SURPRISED. WE FEEL THAT THIS WAS CIRCUMVENTING THE COUNTY CHARTER IN A WAY THAT WAS NOT INTENDED AND IT WAS VERY SURPRISING TO US. I WANTED TO MENTION ALSO REGARDING THE MINETTI REPORT SOME THINGS THAT DID COME OUT THAT WERE VERY CONCERNING TO ALL OF US. THE MINETTI REPORT WHICH WAS THE THIRD PARTY REPORT THAT CAME OUT SAID THAT POLICING THE ANTENNA ON TOP OF THE SEARCH KOTEL WOULD ACTUALLY PROVIDE BETTER COVERAGE FOR SOUTH BROWARD HALL AND DALE AND THE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL BUT THE METRO MONITOR REPORT SELECTED WESTLAKE PARK BECAUSE THEY FELT IT GAVE MORE REDUNDANCY TO THE AIRPORT WHICH I THINK HAS THREE OR FOUR LAYERS OF REDUNDANCY. THEY ALSO CONCLUDED THAT THE PRICE THE COST WOULD BE LESS EXPENSIVE AT WESTLAKE PARK BUT THEY DIDN'T CONSIDER. THE LAND ACQUISITION FROM THE AIKEN PROPERTY FOR A HUNDRED NINETY THOUSAND. IT ALSO DID NOT CONSIDER THE SIXTY TWO THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS THAT WOULD BE PAID TO TAMARACK EVERY YEAR FOR RENT WHICH I THINK WAS INCREASING. SO THE INFORMATION THAT THE MINETTI ENGINEERS HAD WHEN THEY DID THE REPORT WAS NOT COMPLETELY ACCURATE ACCORDING TO THE COST. THE OTHER THING WAS THAT THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD HAD GONE INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITH THE COUNTY WITHOUT THIS KNOWLEDGE THAT THIS WAS HAPPENING AND I TRULY DON'T THINK THEY WOULD HAVE ENTERED INTO IT KNOWING ABOUT THIS LAND SWAP WITH TAMARACK OR AT LEAST BEING PRIVY TO THIS INFORMATION OR AT LEAST THE COUNTY APPROACHING THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND OFFERING THE CITY HOLLYWOOD TO SWAP LAND WITH THE COUNTY. YOU KNOW WITH THE SITUATION BUT APPARENTLY THE COUNTY OFFERED THIS TO OTHER MUNICIPALITIES BUT NOT TO THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD. THE OTHER THING I WANT TO MENTION I DON'T FORGET I'M SAY OH THE GENTLEMAN THAT MENTIONED THE HARD ROCK HOTEL MET VICE MAYOR CLARY HAD ACTUALLY MENTIONED OR HAD ASKED THE COUNTY TO LOOK INTO THAT BECAUSE THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD IS GETTING TO. THEY HAVE TWO LOCATION SITES ONE IN WEST HOLLYWOOD AND ONE IN EAST HOLLYWOOD. AND THEY DID.

APPARENTLY THE COUNTY DID CHECK IN TO THE HARD ROCK HOTEL AND THEY SAID THEY DIDN'T WANT TO ENTER ANY AGREEMENT WITH THE SOVEREIGN NATION BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T THINK IT WOULD BE EASY OF ACCESS. SO THERE IS A TOWER GOING INTO WEST HOLLYWOOD THE EAST HOLLYWOOD SITE WHICH EVERYBODY'S INDICATED IS A IT'S A COASTAL UPLAND. AND THERE ARE NO OTHER COASTAL UPLANDS LEFT IN SOUTH FLORIDA. THIS IS THE LAST ONE AND WE DON'T FEEL THAT THIS LAND THAT'S IN DAVIE IS AN EQUIVALENT SWAP FOR THAT. THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. HELLER. OH ACTUALLY THIS GENTLEMAN WAS. THANK YOU AND GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS MARK FLORIO A RESIDENT OF HALLANDALE BEACH. I LIVE IN A BUILDING BY THE OCEAN. AND ON THIS ONGOING ISSUE THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF INFORMATION SOME MISINFORMATION THAT HAS BEEN SPOKEN RESPECTFULLY IN THE REGARDS OF THROTTLING THIS 25. TOWER DOES NOT ADDRESS THROTTLING AT ALL. IT IS CONCERNED WITH THE PENETRATION OF THOSE HIP. WALKIE TALKIES THAT THE FIRST RESPONDERS HAVE AND WHEN PUSH TO PUSH TO TALK THAT HAS TO HAVE PENETRATION INTO THE BUILDING. NOW THE THE SITE LAKE PART MOVES THE COVERAGE ABOUT A MILE NORTH OF THERE AND IT ELIMINATES. IT DOES NOT AFFECT THE PENETRATION INTO THE BUILDINGS WHICH I LIVE. AND THERE'S SUCH BIG TALL BUILDINGS AND HOW UNHEALTHY A BEACH THAT WILL NOT HAVE THE COVERAGE WILL NOT HAVE THE PENETRATION. SO THE SURF. IS A BETTER LOCATION. IT'S A BETTER LOCATION. THEY'RE THESE VERY SMART PEOPLE FROM BROWARD COUNTY AND THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD ARE WORKING IN GOOD FAITH. THEY HAVE A COMPLEX DYNAMIC GOING AND THEY ARE ON THE VERGE OF WORKING THIS OUT FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE ENTIRE. EVERY PRESIDENT

[01:20:02]

EVERY GUEST IN BROWARD COUNTY. SO NOTHING HAS TO BE DECIDED BY THE GREAT CITY OF OF TAMARACK TONIGHT. LET THESE GOOD PEOPLE CONTINUE WORKING ON THEIR GOOD FAITH.

THERE THEY'RE ON THE VERGE THERE. THERE'S A MAJORITY OF COMMISSIONERS ON BOTH SIDES THAT AGREE. SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING DECIDE ANYTHING TONIGHT. LET THESE GOOD PEOPLE VERY SMART PEOPLE WORK THIS OUT AND YOU DO NOT WANT TO GET INTO THIS DYNAMIC RIGHT NOW. THANK YOU SO MUCH. THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. HELLER.

GERALD HELLER. 7 7 2 7 SOUTH HAMPTON TERRACE. I HAVE BEEN WORKING. I'M NOT A PAID INDIVIDUAL WORKING ON THE TOWER. ALL THE TOWERS APPROVAL FOR OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST YEAR OR SO. I'VE BEEN FOLLOWING THE MOST RECENT EVENT AND WAS REALLY SURPRISED THAT WE HAD THIS SITUATION WITH TAMARACK GETTING IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. THE IMPORTANCE OF MY POINT OF VIEW IS TO GET A TOWER BUILT AND DO THE RIGHT THING FOR THE COUNTY. AND AS I LOOK AT ALL THE DIFFERENT ELEMENTS OF IT I'M NOT A SENIOR I TRIPOLI A MEMBER AND VERY INVOLVED IN THE WORK AND COMMUNITY AND I TRIPOLI RELATIVE TO ALL THE TECHNOLOGIES THAT ENTER INTO THIS PROBLEM. I CAN'T EXPECT THE UH THE COMMISSION HERE IN TAMARACK TO NECESSARILY UNDERSTAND ALL THE DETAILS. TECHNICALLY I'M TO BE HONEST I'M NOT REALLY SURE MYSELF AS TO WHICH WOULD BE A BETTER LOCATION THE CIRCLE WHERE THE UH OR THE PARK. I DON'T THINK THE PROBLEM RELATIVE TO THE PARK IF IT WAS WE WOULDN'T LIKE IT SOLVED THE PROBLEM I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE TOWER UP THERE FOR THE OBVIOUS REASONS BUT I SEE LITIGATION ALL OVER THIS. AND THAT'S WHERE I'M COMING FROM. IF THAT'S GOING TO STALL GETTING THIS TOWER BUILT THAT'S TOO MUCH OF A PROBLEM FOR UH FOR US RIGHT NOW WE'RE ALMOST AT THE POINT WHERE THAT SHOULD BE DONE. I'M GOING TO ASK ONE THING. YOU GUYS ARE REALLY REALLY INTO THIS THING AND VERY INTELLIGENT. AND THE MAYOR BEING LEGALLY AN ATTORNEY AS WELL AS THE MAYOR OF THE TOWN. I'D LIKE. FOR NO OTHER REASON TO SEE OUR COMMISSION MAKE A UNANIMOUS CHOICE IN TERMS OF THIS PARTICULAR VOTE. I THINK THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT FOR THE CITY. I THINK IT'S VERY IMPORTANT FOR EVERYBODY HERE INVOLVED. AND THAT'S WHAT I'M ASKING FOR YOU USE YOUR INTELLIGENCE TO DISCUSS IT. DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO BUT DO IT TOGETHER. PLEASE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE IN THE AUDIENCE WHO WISHES TO SPEAK ABOUT THIS MATTER. THE COUNTY I HAVE ANYTHING THAT YOU'D LIKE TO SAY. THANK YOU. JUST IDENTIFY YOURSELF IF YOU ALPHONSO JEFFERSON ASSISTANT COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR. MAYOR COMMISSIONERS AGAIN LET ME TAKE YOU BACK A LITTLE BIT ON THIS ITEM AS YOU ARE WELL AWARE WHEN I FIRST CAME BEFORE YOU WE TALKED ABOUT TOWERS THROUGHOUT BROWARD COUNTY AND TOWERS WITHIN THE CITY TAMARACK AS WELL. I PERSONALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THE HOLLYWOOD TOWER ITEM FOR WELL OVER THREE YEARS WELL OVER THREE YEARS. IT HAS NOT BEEN A YEAR IT'S BEEN WELL OVER THREE YEARS. IF I REFRESH MEMORIES THE COUNTY HAS LOOKED AT MULTIPLE WELL OVER ABOUT 10 SITES WITHIN THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AT THE REQUEST OF THE CITY OUR FIRST INITIAL SITE WAS IDENTIFY WAS AT THE WATER TREATMENT PLANT THAT WAS RICH AT THEY ACTUALLY MOVED US TO WESLEY PARK. WE WANTED TO BE RIGHT BY A TOWER THAT THEY ALREADY HAVE EXISTING WITHIN THEIR WATER TREATMENT PLANT TO DATE SO THAT STARTED AT THAT PARTICULAR POINT.

WE LOOKED AT THE HARD ROCK. WE LOOKED AT OTHER LOCATIONS THAT MULTIPLE LOCATIONS WHEN WITHIN ON THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD FOR TWO SITES AS WE HAVE IT WITH THE CITY OF TAMARA. WE'D NEVER REJECT THAT LOOKING AT A SITE. WE PROVIDED THE INFORMATION THAT CAME BACK. I RECALL MAYOR AND YOU AND I SPENT WELL OVER OUR ON THE PHONE GOING

[01:25:01]

OVER VARIOUS INFORMATION. WE'RE NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF TRYING TO HIDE ANY TYPE OF INFORMATION ASSOCIATE ASSOCIATED WITH THESE RADIO TOWERS. WE HAD A MANDATE THAT CAME FROM OUR PUBLIC SAFETY USERS AND WE'RE FOLLOWING THAT PARTICULAR MANDATE.

WE DON'T WANT ANY. WE WANT THE BEST SYSTEM AVAILABLE FOR OUR PUBLIC SAFETY USERS AND THAT IS WHAT THAT IS WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DELIVER HERE. I CAN TELL YOU BACK IN NOVEMBER 2008 18 COUNTY STAFF WENT BEFORE THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND THEY TALKED ABOUT THE SITE PLAN AT THAT POINT IN TIME AT THAT TIME. THEY WERE WE WERE DIRECTED IT TO THEIR PLANNING BOARD. NOW LET ME REMIND EVERYBODY HERE THAT CITY STAFF ACTUALLY RECOMMENDED WESTLAKE PARK THE PLANNING BOARD DENIED IT AND WENT TO THE CITY COMMISSION. NOW WE'RE INTO TO 19 NOW HAVING THE DISCUSSIONS. IT WAS ADVISED AND IT WAS THE RIGHT COUNTY STAFF TO DO A STUDY ON THE CIRCLE TO HOTEL. WE PAID OVER ONE HUNDRED TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR THIS DOUGLAS STUDY STUDY CAME BACK GAVE ALL TYPES OF DETAILS AND INFORMATION. THAT STUDY WAS REJECTED. NOW WE HAD A POINT WHERE WE AGREED TO DO AN INDEPENDENT EXPERT STUDY MOTOR CITY THE COUNTY THE EXPERT OUR EXPERT DECIDE ON WHO THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT IS WITH A BINDING AGREEMENT A BINDING AGREEMENT. THEY SAY WHATEVER THE BEST SITE LOCATION WAS IS WHAT WE AGREED TO GO TO NOW THAT STUDY IS MAN REJECTED WE CONTINUE TO SAY LESS WEIGHT LESS WEIGHT LESS WEIGHT WAS WEIGHT. WE'RE BEING OUT OF TIME FOR A LONG AS MR. PETIT CAME BEFORE YOU. HE SAID TO YOU. THE COUNTY HAS MIGHT BE IN BUYING PARTS ON EBAY. THAT'S A FACT. WE CANNOT FIND PARTS FOR THIS SYSTEM ANYMORE. WE CONTINUE TO WAIT AND WAIT AND YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A SYSTEM THAT IS NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO OPERATE THAT WE CANNOT MAINTAIN ANYMORE. THAT IS A FACT. THIS SITE THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS ONLY SEVENTY FIVE BY 75. WE DID ALL THE ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES WE DID ALL THE FAA STUDIES WITH ALL THE NECESSARY STUDIES THAT PEOPLE HAVE ASKED US TO DO ON THIS PARTICULAR SITE. WE HAVE EVEN BASED ON THE RECOMMENDATION FROM THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT REDESIGN AND LIFTED THE PLATFORM ANOTHER TWO FEET BECAUSE OF A CONCERN THAT HAS SOME RESONANCE OF THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD HAVE HAD REGARDING FLOODING. LET ME REMIND YOU THE COUNTY IS HAS BEEN IN THE BUSINESS OF DEALING WITH DEALING WITH RADIO TOWERS FOR MANY MANY YEARS. SO WE KNOW ABOUT DISASTER RECOVERY WHEN IT COMES TO RADIO TOWER SITES. WE HAVE SITES IN PART LOCATIONS TODAY AND OTHER PART LOCATION SO THIS IS NOT SOMETHING NEW TO US AT ALL. WE HAVE HAD MULTIPLE CONVERSATIONS REGARDING THIS PARTICULAR SITE. IT'S TIME FOR US TO MOVE FORWARD ON THIS. WE DID NOT HIGH ANY PARTICULARLY INFORMATION. WE HAD TWO JOINT MEETINGS WITH THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD SWAPS AS CHANGES CAME UP IN THOSE PARTICULAR MEETINGS COUNTY STAFF DID OUR DUE DILIGENCE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH VARIOUS TYPES OF INFORMATION ASSOCIATED WITH THIS TO PREPARE THESE SITES. WE HAVE ALREADY INVESTED ONE MILLION DOLLARS IN A WESTLAKE PART THAT'S FOR THE SHELTER AND FOR THE STEEL ALREADY ORDER ALREADY IN PROCESS BECAUSE WE BELIEVED THAT THE BINDING AGREEMENT WAS IN PLACE TO MOVE FOR THERE HAVE BEEN MANY CONVERSATIONS. HOW CAN WE GO AHEAD AND PROCEED AND STILL HAVE THIS CONVERSATION REGARDING WESLEY PARK. I CAN TELL YOU. COUNTY STAFF HAS NEVER RECOMMENDED BUILDING NOT A SITE ONLY WHAT NOT BUILT NOT A SITE WITH JUST ONE SITE REMAINING. WE DIDN'T WANT A 15 15 RADIO TOWER SITE BUT THAT'S AN OPTION THAT IS AN OPTION ON THE TABLE AT THIS PARTICULAR POINT. NOW THAT DOES HAVE IMPACTS WHEN AN IMPASSE FROM A RESIDENT OF HOLLYWOOD BECAUSE THEY DON'T GET A PATENT SYSTEM THAT WE'RE BUILDING OUT TODAY. SAME THING WITH A RESIDENT ON HOLIDAY BEACH IN DAYTONA BEACH. THEY DON'T GET THE BENEFITS OF THEY ENHANCED SYSTEM. WHEN WE TALK ABOUT RADIO PENETRATION WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THROTTLING THIS NEW SYSTEM ADDRESSES THAT BUT IT DOES TAKE A COMBINATION OF HOW OUR FIRST RESPONDERS UTILIZE THEIR PUSH THE TALKS AND HOW THEY COMMUNICATE ON THE

[01:30:03]

RADIO SYSTEM AS WELL. SO ALL THAT ITEMS ARE BEING ADDRESSED IN EXISTING SYSTEM TODAY. THE COUNTY BELIEVES IT'S TIME FOR US TO MOVE FOR IT'S TIME FOR US TO GO AHEAD AND FINALIZE THIS LAST SITE WHICH WAS TO LET WESLEY PART SITE WHICH WAS IDENTIFIED IDENTIFIED AND SAY IT WAS THE BEST SITE BY THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT. WE HAVE DONE THESE CHANGES BEFORE. THERE'S NOTHING THE COUNTY IS HEIDI. THERE IS NOTHING THAT THE COUNTY IS TRYING TO DO BACKHANDED HERE. WE'RE TRYING TO MOVE THIS PROJECT FORWARD BECAUSE THAT WAS MANDATED BY US TO GET THIS DONE. AND WE ASKED FOR YOUR PARTNERSHIP TO GET THIS DONE. WE'RE WELL PAST THE TIMEFRAME. I REMEMBER WHEN I CAME BEFORE YOU I SAID TO YOU THAT OUR GOAL WAS TO HAVE THIS SYSTEM UP AND RUNNING. DECEMBER 20 19 WE WILL NOT MEET THAT DATE. WE'RE GONNA BE INTO WE'RE GONNA BE AT A 20 20 FOR THIS SYSTEM. OUR GOAL WAS DEC. 20 19. IT WILL NOT HAPPEN. SO I CAN TELL YOU AGAIN AND I JUST REWRITE AT THIS POINT. I'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS SYSTEM JUST IN HOLLYWOOD FOR WELL OVER THREE YEARS AND I PERSONALLY HAVE BEEN IN INDIVIDUAL MEETINGS GOING OVER SITE LOCATIONS WITH COMMISSIONERS IN THE CITY OF HOLLOWAY. WHEN IT'S FIRST STARTING SO THE COUNTY HAS A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF DUE DILIGENCE AND WE HAVE LESS THAN WE HAVE. MAYOR COMMISSIONERS YOU HAVE PERSONALLY CALLED ME I KNOW YOUR CITY MANAGER HAS CALLED ME. HEY ALFONSO LOOK AT THIS PARTICULAR SITE IN THE CITY OF TAMARACK. LOOK AT THIS PARTICULAR SITE.

THERE WAS NO SITE THAT WE WOULD NOT LOOK AT BUT WE PROVIDED YOU THAT INFORMATION.

WE DID NOT HIDE ANYTHING. AND WE DID NOT HIDE ANYTHING FROM THE CITY OF HOLLOWAY WE ARE FOCUSED ON GETTING THIS SYSTEM GONE AND WE BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO GET IT DONE TODAY. NOT A WEEK FROM NOW OR TWO MONTHS NOW AND EASILY GET DONE TODAY. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND I DID SEE THE LADY CAME UP TO SPEAK AND IF YOU WOULD AND THEN IS THERE ANYONE ELSE TO SPEAK ON THIS MATTER BECAUSE IT WAS MARYVILLE AFTER SHE'S DONE AND THEN WE WILL BRING IT BACK TO OUR COMMISSIONS OR A COMMISSION CAN ASK SOME QUESTIONS PLEASE. THANK YOU SO MUCH MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS THANK YOU FOR HELPING WELCOMING US AND TAMARA THIS EVENING. MY NAME IS CAROL SHU HAM. I'M THE COMMISSIONER FOR DISTRICT 1 IN THE HOLLYWOOD DISTRICT ONE IS HOME OF NOT ONLY WESTLAKE PARK BUT ALSO OF THE CIRQUE HOTEL AND WASN'T REALLY PLANNING TO SPEAK TONIGHT. I THOUGHT I WOULD BE HERE IN THE EVENT THAT YOU HAD SPECIFIC QUESTIONS. BUT I I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO ADDRESS A FEW OF THE COMMENTS THAT WERE MADE. FIRST I'M SPEAKING FOR MYSELF BUT I HAVE ASKED REPEATEDLY TO OUR STAFF A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS. ONE DID YOU. THE CITY STAFF OF HOLLYWOOD SUGGESTS THIS WESTLAKE PARK SITE. THE ANSWER IS NO. 2 DID YOU. THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD STAFF EVER RECEIVE THE INVITATION THAT YOU ALL ARE DISCUSSING TONIGHT. AND THE ANSWER IS NO. SO I THINK THAT WE HAVE TO ASK OURSELVES WHY WOULD THIS COUNTY COME TO TAMARACK AND NOT TO HOLLYWOOD. AND WITH RESPECT TO WHAT THE PRIOR SPEAKER WAS SAYING ABOUT HIDING THINGS HIDING IS A TOUGH WORD. BUT I WILL SAY THERE WERE CERTAIN THINGS THAT WERE NOT DISCLOSED TO THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND AMONG THEM IS THE REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION THAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THIS EVENING. WE WENT INTO AN INTER LOCAL AGREEMENT WITH THE COUNTY WITH INFORMATION THAT HAD BEEN TRANSFERRED BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE CITY AND COUNTY FOR MONTHS. AND NOWHERE INCLUDED IN THAT INFORMATION WAS THAT A LAND TRANSACTION IN DAVIE WAS RELATED IN ANY WAY TO WHAT WAS HAPPENING AT WESTLAKE PARK NOR THAT THERE WOULD BE ANY LEASE PAYMENTS PAID BY THE COUNTY TO ANY ENTITY FOR THE PRIVILEGE OF RESIDING. HAVING THE TOWER RESIDE IN WESTLAKE PARK THAT IS VERY. THAT INFORMATION WAS VERY MATERIAL TO HOW OUR CITY MOVED FORWARD WITH THE EYE. THE ONLY THING I WANT TO SAY IN CONCLUSION IS THAT WE HAVE SEVERAL EXPERTS THAT ONE'S NOT FOR YOU. OK. WE'VE HAD SEVERAL EXPERTS CONFIRM THAT THE CIRQUE HOTEL IS A VERY VIABLE LOCATION THAT WILL PROVIDE THE ULTIMATE SAFETY FOR THE RESIDENTS OF BROWARD COUNTY. THERE'S THERE'S THERE'S NO DOWNSIDE. WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE LOSING GREEN SPACE. WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE HAVING A TOWER THAT'S SITTING AT SEA LEVEL. I DON'T KNOW IF ALL OF YOU WATCH CNN AS I DID REPEATEDLY PANNING BACK

[01:35:05]

AND FORTH ACROSS THAT RADIO TOWER IN THE BAHAMAS AND ALL I COULD SAY IS GOD WILLING THIS WORKS OUT AND THIS ANTENNA GOES ON TO THE TOP OF THE CIRQUE SO THAT WHEN WE SUFFER AND WE KNOW THAT WE WILL WHEN WE SUFFER OUR CAT 5 HURRICANE. THERE'S NOT PICTURES OF CNN OF OUR TOWER IN WESTLAKE PARK DOWN THE CIRQUE BUILDING AS A CATEGORY 5 BUILT STRUCTURE. AND WE HAVE EVERY REASON TO BELIEVE IT WILL BE A MUCH SAFER PLACE FOR THIS ANTENNA. AND AS OTHER SPEAKERS HAVE INDICATED IT WILL MUCH BETTER COVER IN A REDUNDANT FASHION LOCATIONS TO THE SOUTH OF. THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD INCLUDING TAMARACK AND THE SOUTH END OF HOLLYWOOD ALONG WITH LOTS OF CONDOMINIUMS AND AND TALL BUILDINGS LIKE THAT ALONG OUR BEACH WHICH IS ONE OF THE REASONS THAT THIS CURRENT SYSTEM ISN'T 100 PERCENT IS THAT WE DON'T HAVE GREAT COVERAGE ALONG OUR BEACH BY PUTTING AT WESTLAKE PARK THE WEAKEST LINK IN OUR SYSTEM NOW WON'T BE ADDRESSED IN A REDUNDANT WAY. SO IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER THEM. I'VE BEEN DEEPLY INVOLVED IN THIS. WE SO APPRECIATE THE EFFORTS OF THE COUNTY. EVERYONE'S HEART IS IN THE SAME PLACE. WE WANT TO GET THIS DONE. WE WANT TO GET IT DONE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. I'VE BEEN INVOLVED IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND IT IS MY OPINION THAT PUTTING THIS ON TOP OF AN EXISTING VERY STRONG STRUCTURE WILL BE EASY. IT WILL BE QUICK IF THE COUNTY WORKS WITH US. WE CAN ALL WORK TOGETHER WITH MOTOROLA AND GET THIS DONE IN A VERY EXPEDITIOUS FASHION. THANK YOU SO MUCH. THANK YOU COMMISSIONER. OK GREAT. THANK YOU. SO OUR LAST SPEAKER ON THE MATTER WILL BE THE VICE MAYOR TOMORROW. OH SORRY. YOU HEADLINE. YES. GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS. MAYOR CITY ATTORNEY CITY MANAGER THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME THE COUNTY HERE MY NAME IS AND YOU CAN ACTION. I'M A DEPUTY COUNTY ATTORNEY AND I HANDLE THAT COUNTY'S REAL PROPERTY MATTERS. AND I'VE BEEN INVOLVED IN HELPING THE COUNTY ACQUIRE OUR PARCELS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY OR ACQUIRE OR LEASES AS WE HAVE IN TAMARACK TO DEVELOP THESE TOWERS. I JUST WANTED TO ADDRESS A FEW. A NUMBER OF ITEMS WE'RE THE WE ULTIMATELY ARE WHERE WE ARE. WITH RESPECT TO THE SITE OF THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND THE SITE PLAN AFTER THE CITY AND THE COUNTY WENT THROUGH THE PLOT STARTED TO GO THROUGH THE PROCESSES FOR UNDER CHAPTER 164 HAVING JOINT MEETINGS BETWEEN OUR COMMISSION AND ULTIMATELY DECIDING THAT WE WOULD GO WITH THE PROCESS OF HAVING A THIRD PARTY NEUTRAL MAKE A DECISION ON WHICH PARTS WHICH PROPERTY WOULD MAKE THE BEST WOULD MAKE THE BEST LOCATION FOR FOR OUR FINAL TOWER 16TH TOWER. THE COUNTY HAS FOLLOWED THE PROCESS UNDER THE INTO LOCAL AND HAVING HAD THE EXPERT DECIDE THAT THE WESTLAKE PARK TEC PARK LOCATION WAS THE MOST IDEAL. THE NEXT STEP IN THE PROCESS IS THAT. WE SHOULD BE ALLOWED OUR SITE PLAN IS APPROVED AND WE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO PROCEED. THE COUNTY IS COMMITTED TO FOLLOWING THE PROCESS AND THAT INTO A LOCAL JUST LIKE IT WOULD BE IF WE SIGNED THE INTO LOCAL HERE WITH TAMARACK. JUST WANTED TO ALSO CLARIFY AND MAKE SURE THE CITY IS A WORRY. WE BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE ALL THE LEGAL RIGHTS IN ORDER TO MAKE THE DEVELOPMENT AT WESTLAKE PARK WITH RESPECT TO THE TOWER. THE FINAL STEP BEING THIS SWAMP THE COUNTY HAS THROUGHOUT THE MONTHS OF DEVELOPING THE SITE TAKEN VARIOUS STEPS FOR INSTANCE HAVING TO DO A WAIVER OF A DECLARATION WITH RESPECT TO THE PROPERTY AND NOW DOING THE SWAP IN ORDER TO COMPLY WITH OUR CHARTER REVISION WHICH SPECIFICALLY ALLOWS FOR A TRANSACTION LIKE THIS WHERE THE CITY OR THE COUNTY MAY SWAP A PARCEL WITH A MUNICIPALITY IN ORDER TO TO DEVELOP THE AREA. AND WHEN ONE OF OUR REGIONAL PARKS SO WE ARE FULLY COMPLIANT WITH OUR LEGAL OBLIGATIONS IN ORDER TO DEVELOP THE PARCELS IF I KNOW WE SPOKE WE SPOKE TO YOU ON MONDAY AT THE WORKSHOP IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT ANY OF THE AGREEMENTS AND THE INTER LOCAL IN PARTICULAR I'D BE HAPPY TO ANSWER IT. BUT WE'RE HERE AND HAPPY TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE ENTIRE LOCAL AGREEMENT WITH THE CITY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. NOW VICE MAYOR ALMOST AGAIN THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALLOWING US THIS TIME. IF I MAY I THINK OR STAFF ABLY ADDRESSED THE ISSUES THAT WE FACE. WE ARE ELECTED TO REPRESENT PEOPLE IN ALL CITIZENS. AND THEN IN THE COUNTY. AND I UNDERSTAND THE ANGST THAT SOME OF THE RESIDENTS IN HOLLYWOOD HAVE OVER THIS SITE. THEY DON'T WANT IT IN THEIR BACKYARD. TRULY WHAT HAPPEN AT THE END OF THE DAY IS NOT NECESSARILY GOING TO BE THE MOST LIKELY THING BUT LET'S ALSO

[01:40:02]

UNDERSTAND THAT TODAY TWO HUNDRED FEET AWAY FROM WHERE WE'RE LOOKING TO PLACE THIS SITE IS THE HOLLYWOOD WATER TREATMENT PLANT. WITH A WATER TOWER AS ONE OF YOUR RESIDENTS DESCRIBED EARLIER THAT WHAT WE'RE LOOKING TO DO WOULD LOOK LIKE A PEN NEXT TO THAT WATER TOWER. SO IT WE'RE NOT PUT IN SOMETHING SOMEWHERE WHERE SOMETHING ELSE SIMILAR IS NOT LOCATED. I HAVE A LOT OF ANGST OVER DELAY DELAY DELAY BUT WE'RE PATIENT ENOUGH WITH THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND THE REST OF OUR COMMISSION TO EXTEND TIME AND TIME AGAIN THE PROCESS. WE HAD TWO JOINT MEETINGS. AND THEN THE FINAL MEETING WE HAD AN AGREEMENT THAT WE WOULD GO OUT AND GET THIS THIRD PARTY AND IF WHATEVER SITE THIS THIRD PARTY SAID WAS THE BEST IS THE ONE WE WOULD BOTH AGREE TO GO TO THAT HAPPENED. THE THIRD PARTY SAID WESLEY IS THE BEST SITE AS OR PREVIOUS EXPERT HAD SAID SO WE ARE COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR. BEEN WORKING TO MAKE THIS THING HAPPEN AS SOON AS THAT CAME BACK. WE FIGURED HEY WE HAVE AN AGREEMENT. NO PROBLEM. WE'LL GO AHEAD AND PURSUE IT THIS SWAP HAD TO HAPPEN. WE DISCUSSED IT PUBLICLY. THERE'S NO SECRET ABOUT THE SWAP THAT WE HAD TO DO IT IS CLEARLY ACKNOWLEDGED THAT WE HAD TO DO THE SWAP IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE THIS SITE. THIS IS WHAT WE'RE DO IN TUCSON HIDING THE FACT THAT WE NEEDED TO DO THIS THAT WE'RE DOING HERE TONIGHT. IT IS REALLY CRITICAL THAT WE MOVE FORWARD. WE'VE ALREADY PUT MONEY OUT BASED ON THE FACT THAT WE THOUGHT WE HAD AN AGREEMENT THAT WAS BINDING ON BOTH OF US THAT WE WOULD LIVE WITH COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR AS SOON AS THAT CAME BACK.

MOVE THE PROCESS FORWARD ALREADY ORDERED IN THIS AND THEY DID THE DESIGN FOR THE SITE. BUILDING IS ALREADY DONE. MEDALS FOR FOR THE STEEL FOR IT FOR THE BUILDING OF THE TOWER ALREADY ORDERED THAT'S MONEY ALREADY SPENT NOW THERE'S DISCUSSION ABOUT IF FOR SOME REASON WE'RE DELAYED THROUGH ANY LITIGATION OR WHAT HAVE YOU THAT WE GO DOWN TO 15 SITE THAT'S NOT OPTIMAL FOR PEOPLE AND IT'S GOING TO COST US MORE MONEY IN THE END. I DON'T CARE FOR US TO GO TO A LEGAL BATTLE. BUT WE MUST DO WHAT WE NEED TO DO FOR ALL THE RESIDENTS OF BROWARD COUNTY THE RESIDENTS TAMARACK PARKLAND CORAL SPRINGS EVERYWHERE IN BROWARD COUNTY AND I HOPE THAT YOU WILL UNDERSTAND AND GIVE THAT DUE CONSIDERATION TO MOVE FORWARD TO HELP US AND HELP THE PEOPLE OF BROWARD COUNTY. THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND AT THIS TIME I'M GOING TO CALL OUR COMMISSIONER. EXCUSE ME MAY I. CAN YOU CLOSE A PUBLIC HEARING PLEASE.

I APOLOGIZE. AT THE SAME PUBLIC HEARING IS CLOSED FOR THIS MATTER. COMMERCIAL FISHMAN HELPS IF I TURN MY MIKE ON. I DO HAVE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS. UM MR. JEFFERSON IF YOU WOULD PLEASE AND PERHAPS THE COUNTY ATTORNEY COMMISSIONER EFFICIENT IF YOU WOULD PLEASE BE CLOSER TO THE MIKE SOME PEOPLE ARE HAVING TROUBLE HEARING. THANK YOU. IT'S THAT BETTER. SO ON MONDAY'S MEETING WE DID COVER A LOT OF THE ACTUAL IN OUR LOCAL AGREEMENT AND I'D LIKE TO GO OVER SOME OF THAT AGAIN. BUT I'D LIKE TO START WITH THE REQUEST THAT I MADE VERY SPECIFICALLY ON MONDAY'S MEETING AND REITERATED VERY SPECIFICALLY AT THE CLOSE OF THE ISSUE WHAT I HAD REQUESTED WAS A LIST OF CITIES THAT OWEN COUNTY PARK LAND IN OTHER CITIES SIMILAR TO WHAT YOU'RE ASKING TAMARACK TO DO. COMMISSIONER ON THAT PARTICULAR LIST THAT I PROVIDED INCLUDES A NUMBER APOLOGIZE. WHAT WAS THAT. WELL WE BELIEVE WHAT WAS ASKED US WAS WAS THERE A SEAMLESS CHANGE THAT WOULD OCCUR THAT ASSOCIATED WITH THE PARK CHARTER WOULD A LAND SWAP OR A CHANGE ON THAT PARTICULAR LIST IS A PARTICULAR PARCEL OF LAND THAT'S CALLED A ROLLING ROLO MARTIN LAND MARINE AND LAND. I APOLOGIZE. I INDICATED THAT AND I APOLOGIZE I INDICATED THAT IN THE EMAIL AS WELL THAT THAT THAT PARTICULAR PARCEL IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PARK CHARTER THAT WAS

[01:45:04]

DEALT WITH EXCHANGE OR SWAP ASSOCIATED WITH IT. WHAT WE ALSO PROVIDED WAS A LIST OF ALL THOSE CHANGES BECAUSE WE WANT TO MAKE SURE AND WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU YOU UNDERSTOOD THAT WE DO AS CHANGES IN SWAPS WITH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE ASSOCIATED WHITLEY BUT THAT ROLAND CAN KEEP SAYING WHAT IS THERE. I'M SORRY RILEY MARINE ON ONE IS THE ONE THAT'S ASSOCIATED WITH THE PARK CHARTER RIGHT. BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT I REQUESTED. WHAT I REQUESTED WAS A LIST OF SIMILAR DEALS TO WHAT YOU'RE ASKING TAMARACK TO ENTER INTO SO THAT IT WOULD SAY WESTLAKE PARK LAND ACCORDING TO YOUR LIST. THE ONE THAT SOME BROWARD COUNTY. WAIT A SECOND. THE PARTY THAT DOING THE EXCHANGE WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN FOR RALEIGH MARINE. IT WAS PARTY ONE WAS BROWARD COUNTY PARTY TWO WAS THE CITY OF DANIA BEACH AND THE LANDS IN DAYTONA BEACH. IF I'M READING THIS CORRECTLY WHAT I'M ASKING FOR. IS A LIST OF DEALS SIMILAR TO THE ONE YOU'RE ASKING TAMARACK TO DO SO THAT IT WOULD SAY WESTLAKE PARK LAND BROWARD COUNTY PARK IT'S IN TAMARA OR IT WOULD BE CALLED TAMARACK BUT IT'S IN HOLLYWOOD THAT'S NOT WHAT I GOT. SO WE DON'T HAVE ANY SIMILAR TRANSACTIONS. WE'VE ONLY HAD ONE TRANSACTION WHERE WE'VE USED THE PARK CHARTER. WITH THE WITH THE SWAP IN A SWAP TRANSACTION LIKE THIS. AND IT'S THE RALEIGH MARINE TRANSACTION. AND IN THAT CASE IT INVOLVED THE THIRD PARTIES PRIVATE ENTITY RATHER THAN ANOTHER CITY THAT WAS ABLE TO DO THAT PURCHASE THE PRIVATE PROPERTY AND THEN CONVEYED IT TO THE COUNTY. RIGHT. AND THAT WAS DUE TO AN ERROR BY A SURVEY COMPANY THAT WAS NOT A WE'RE COMING TO A CITY AND ASKING THEM TO SWAP LAND. WELL THIS WAS AN ERROR. EXCUSE ME I'M SORRY THE ERROR BY THE SURVEY COMPANY RESULTED IN PROPERTY BEING BUILT OR SOME PRIVATE PROPERTY BEING BUILT ON COUNTY LAND AND SO IN ORDER FOR IT THEY USED TO CONTINUE. WE PARTICIPATED IN THAT SWAP. OTHERWISE THERE THERE HAD BEEN SOME PRIVATE PROPERTY ON COUNTY LAND WHICH WOULD HAVE ON OUR REGIONAL PARK WHICH WOULD HAVE VIOLATED THE PARK. SO IT'S A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCE AND IT'S NOT WHAT I ASKED FOR BECAUSE YOU'RE NOW TELLING ME THAT NO OTHER CITY HAS PARTICIPATED IN THE LAND SWAP THAT YOU'RE ASKING US TO DO. TONIGHT. THAT'S CORRECT.

OK. THANK YOU. ON THAT ONE OF THE RESIDENTS OF HOLLYWOOD SAID THAT THE THE LAND THAT'S BEING SWAPPED THE PARK LAND THAT'S BEING SWAPPED IN HOLLYWOOD OR I'M SORRY IN WESTLAKE PARK FOR THE DAVEY PARK LAND IS NOT EVEN SIMILAR IN NATURE CAN YOU EXPLAIN TO ME HOW THAT HAPPENS. BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND BY CHARTER IT HAS TO BE LIKE ACRE FOR ACRE REPLACEMENT OF THE TRANSFERRED PROPERTY TO ME LIKE WOULD MEAN IF YOU'RE GOING FOR A MANGROVE AREA IN ONE CITY YOU'RE GOING FOR A MANGROVE AREA IN ANOTHER CITY OF THIS OF SAME OR SIMILAR SIZE. CORRECT. YES IN THAT IN THAT EXAMPLE YES. SO IN OUR VIEW THIS IS A LIKE ACRE SWATH JUST TO UNDERSTAND WHAT A PARK IS IS A HAS HUNDREDS OF ACRES OF LAND. THIS PARTICULAR PARCEL IS LAND THAT'S DIRECTLY ADJACENT TO THE CITY'S GOLF COURSE. AND SO WHAT'S PROBABLY CONSIDERED THE RECREATIONAL AREA OF WESTLAKE PARK SO IT'S MORE YOU KNOW IT'S NOT ONE OF THE MANGROVE AREAS IT'S A FLAT GRASSLAND GENERAL RECREATION NOT MANGROVE AS IT IS FOR INSTANCE ON THE NORTH SIDE OF SHERIDAN WHERE IT'S PROTECTED MANGROVE UNDEVELOPED PROPERTY ASK AS VICE MAYOR HOLLIS MENTIONED IT'S NEXT TO THE WATER TREATMENT PLAN AND WHERE THE CITY'S WATER TOWER IS. SO THE AIKEN PROPERTY IS IN THE MIDDLE OF A LONG KEY NATURE CENTER WHICH IN OUR VIEW IS SIMILAR. LIKE PARCEL WHICH IS JUST YOU KNOW NOT ONE PIECE PROBABLY ACTUALLY HAS A LITTLE BIT MORE NATURAL OF THE NATURAL VEGETATION ORIGINAL NATURAL VEGETATION BUT IT IS SIMILARLY NOT BECAUSE OF WESTLAKE PARCEL THAT WE ARE GONNA BE WORKING WITH AND THAT WE'RE SWAPPING IS NOT MANGROVE

[01:50:03]

AREA WE DIDN'T FEEL WE HAD TO TO DO AN EXCHANGE FOR A MANGROVE AREA AS WELL JUST SIMPLY PARK RECREATIONAL AREA AS WE'RE GETTING FROM WESTLAKE PARK. AND HOW FAR FROM THE MANGROVE AREA IS THE TOWER. SO THIS PARCEL IS ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF WHAT'S WELL WHAT'S THE. PARK RUNS ALL THE WAY UP TO PORT EVERGLADES DOWN SOUTH PASS HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD. THE MANGROVE AREA IS GOING TO BE TO THE TO THE EAST OF THERE.

THERE'S THE RECREATIONAL AREA BUT THERE'S A FEW DIFFERENT MANGROVE AREAS BUT THERE'S THIS RECORD THIS PARCEL THAT'S KIND OF PARK RECREATIONAL. IT HAS SHELTERS AND OTHER THINGS LIKE THAT. THEN THERE IS A LAKE AND THEN THERE'S SOME SOME MANGROVE SLASH WATER AREA WITH A LOT OF WATER RETENTION. AND THEN ON THE NORTH SIDE IS WHERE WE HAVE THE MAJORITY YET WHERE IN COLD IS THE MAJORITY OF OUR MANGROVE KIND OF NATURAL NATURAL. DEVELOPED. DO YOU HAVE AN ESTIMATE OF HOW FAR DISTANCE WISE THE TOWER IS FROM THE MANGROVE AREA OR ANY OTHER PROTECTED AREA. I DON'T HAVE A DISTANCE. WE CAN WE CAN TRY TO LOOK AT THAT AND TRY TO GET YOU A DISTANCE TONIGHT BUT DOES NOT IMPACT IN ANY OF THE MANGROVES COMPONENT OF IT IF YOU LOOK AT THIS PARTICULAR AREA ITSELF IS REALLY IS USED BY OUR PARKS DEPARTMENT IS A GATED AREA IT IS HAS BEEN UNTOUCHED PRETTY MUCH ARE WE JUST USE IT AS REALLY FROM A PARKS PERSPECTIVE WHERE WE HAVE OUR TRUCKS TO GO IN THERE THEY DO VARIOUS THINGS BUT IT'S NOT IMPACTING THE MANGROVES OBVIOUSLY IS NOT IMPACTED IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL SIDE WHICH IS PROBABLY ON ON THE MORE NORTHERN SIDE OF THE PARTICULAR LOCATION ITSELF BUT THEY ESTIMATE HOW FAR AWAY FROM MANGROVES WE NEED TO LOOK AT A MAP AND PROBABLY MAKE THAT DETERMINATION. HOW FAR AWAY FROM THE MANGROVES IT IS. BUT IT'S NOT IMPACTED IN ANYTHING ENVIRONMENTAL AN AREA IS IT MORE THAN THREE HUNDRED AND THIRTY FIVE FEET.

YOU'RE ASKING ME TO MAKE A GUESSTIMATE WHICH I CANNOT GO ON UNTIL I LOOK AT THAT. OKAY. I HAVE KNOWN THAT QUESTION BEFORE AND I COULD HAVE HAD THAT FOR YOU TONIGHT. I DIDN'T THINK TO ASK GABE BECAUSE I DIDN'T REALIZE THE CONJUNCTION OF THE MANGROVE AREA IS LIKE. AND I APOLOGIZE. I HAVE A SERIES OF QUESTIONS I SHOULD HAVE STATED THAT YOU ARE FINE. WELL WE GOT AUDIO IN AND OUT. SO PLEASE EVERYBODY JUST REGARD THAT HE'S JUST TRYING TO GET BACK TO THE MEETING. CAN. I ASKED AT MONDAY'S MEETING BUT I'D LIKE YOU TO REITERATE HOW FAR FROM THE TOWER IS THE HOLLYWOOD PUBLIC WORKS AREA IF WE HAVE A MAP RIGHT HERE ON A MAP WE'RE LOOKING AT IS YOU SEE THE TOWER. HOW MANY FEET IS. IT'S ABOUT 200. IT'S ABOUT 200 FEET. OK.

UNDERSTANDING THAT THESE TOWERS ARE BUILT TO WITHSTAND LARGE HURRICANES CAT 5 AND ALL OF THAT. IN AN INSTANCE WHERE THE WORST HAPPENS AND THE TOWER FALLS AND IT IMPACTS THE PUBLIC WORKS BUILDING FOR HOLLYWOOD. THE MUSIC. THE OTHER MUSIC WITH IT. SORRY THE WORST HAPPENS. HURT CAME TO OUR TOWER WHAT THE TOWER IN THE BAHAMAS WENT THROUGH AND IT IMPACTS THE PUBLIC WORKS BUILDING IN THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD.

THIS ONE IS ACTUALLY FOR THE ATTORNEY. COULD YOU EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IN THAT INSTANCE IF THERE WERE MORE THAN A MILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF DAMAGE DONE TO THE HOLLYWOOD BUILDING AND HOW A SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY WOULD WORK FOR BOTH OUR CITIES.

WELL OF. BOTH OUR CITIES TAMARACK AND HOLLYWOOD AND THE COUNTY MADAM MAYOR IF I COULD JUST INTERRUPT FOR A MINUTE BEFORE THE ATTORNEY RESPONDS TO THE QUESTION FROM THE COMMISSIONER. COULD YOU JUST GIVE US A MINUTE TO GET COMMISSIONER GILLAN BACK ON THE LINE. WE JUST NEED. OH HOW ABOUT THIS. WOULD ANYBODY MIND IF I HELD A 10 MINUTE RECESS. WE JUST SHOULD TABLE THIS MESS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR OPINION. WE. ANY TIME. YEAH WE JUST NEED SOME. WE JUST NEED SILENCE FOR JUST MAYBE 30 SECONDS AND LIVE

[01:55:01]

AND I'LL HOOK IT UP. ALL RIGHT. SO ACTUALLY WE'RE GONNA CALL A TEN MINUTE BREAK. PLEASE GET COMMISSIONER GALEN ON THE LINE. EVERYBODY WE WILL BE BACK HERE AT 9 10. THANK YOU YOUNG MAN. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN LET'S FIND OUR SEATS. WELL NOVEMBER RIGHT. PLEASE MAKE ME THINK. YOU. SHOULD GIVE THEM HELL. GOOD TO SEE. I THINK HE SAID GIVE EM HELL YES. WELL WE LEFT BEFORE A BREAK. WE WERE MAKING SURE THAT COMMISSIONER GALEN CAN HEAR US AND WE CAN HEAR HIM. COMMISSIONER GALEN ARE YOU STILL THERE. YEAH I'M HERE. I WAS ABLE TO MEET THE MAN ON THE COMPUTER BUT NOT GET FEEDBACK. WELL NOW I THINK YOU'RE ON THE PHONE. BYE BYE. EXCELLENT THANK YOU COMMISSIONER FISHMAN IS STILL UNDER. HAVING HER QUESTIONS ANSWERED THEN WE HAVE THE VICE MAYOR AND THEN YOURSELF. THANK YOU MR. FISHMAN. PLEASE BEGIN. WELL JUST JUST TO START OFF TELL YOU WE USED BEGAN WE. WE PROVIDED FOR YOU A MAP CALLED THE HOLLYWOOD TOWER SITE PROPOSED LOCATIONS AND SOME OTHER INFORMATION AS WELL.

LUCKILY WE HAD IT IN OUR CAR. SO WE BROUGHT THIS IN FOR YOU ON THE PARTICULAR MAP. IF YOU LOOK AT LOCATION A LOCATION A IS THE. AREA THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

THAT'S THE WAY SLATE PART SITE THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE SEVENTY FIVE SEVENTY.

LOCATION LOCATION SEE THAT'S WITHIN THE WATER TREATMENT PLANT LOCATION. THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE PROPOSED FOR THE WATER TREATMENT LOCATION WHICH WAS REJECTED LOCATION B WAS THE LOCATION THAT WE ALSO LOOK THAT AT THE REQUEST OF THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD. OBVIOUSLY THAT IS AT THE FRONT PART OF WESTLAKE PARK. BUT THAT IS BY THE WATER TOWER ITSELF. SO A LOCATION A HAS BEEN THE BEST SITE. OR IT COULD HAVE BEEN LOCATION C WHICH WE WERE MORE THAN WILLING TO DO IT AT A PARTICULAR LOCATION SEE ITSELF. SO WE WANT TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THAT VISUAL SO YOU CAN SEE THAT THE LOCATION A RIGHT NOT A GOLF COURSE RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE WATER TREATMENT PLANT. THE TOWER ITSELF. WE DON'T BELIEVE WILL FALL IN A MANNER THAT IS THAT COULD BE INDICATED JUST FALL OVER IS IS DESIGNED IN A WAY THAT IT CRUMBLES DOWN IN THE EVENT THAT SOMETHING OF THAT NATURE OCCURS OF THAT NATURE BUT NOT HIT THE WATER TREATMENT PLANT BUILDINGS OR STRUCTURES OR THOSE PARTICULAR THINGS THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. I. I APPRECIATE THE. WE DON'T THINK IT WILL FALL IN THE MANNER THAT UH WHAT HIT THE BUILDING. BUT LET'S JUST SAY IT DOES. AND THE SCENARIO PLAYS OUT AS I SAID THERE IS OVER A MILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF DAMAGE TO THE HOLLYWOOD PUBLIC WORKS BUILDING. YOU HAVE THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND THE CITY OF TAMARACK BECAUSE WE ARE THE DEED HOLDER NOW EMBROILED IN SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY. COULD YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN TO US HOW THAT WOULD WORK. SO AS JUST TO ANSWER THE LEGAL QUESTION FROM A TORT LIABILITY PERSPECTIVE THE COUNTY DOES NOT HAVE IS PROTECTED BY SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY AND SO WE WE ENJOY A CAP JUST LIKE MUNICIPALITIES IN TERMS OF THE DAMAGES THAT WE WOULD FACE.

HOWEVER PURSUANT TO THE CONTRACT AND THE INTER LOCAL AGREEMENT AND THE LEASE THAT WILL EXECUTE WITH THE CITY THE COUNTY HAS AGREED THAT WE WILL TAKE ON ALL LIABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY WITH RESPECT TO THE OPERATION OF THE TOWER AND THE LOCATION OF THE TOWER AND THE FACT THAT WE ARE LEASING THE TOWER. SO WE ARE WE WOULD BE CONTRACTUALLY OBLIGATING OURSELVES TO ANY LIABILITY THAT THE CITY MIGHT BE EXPOSED TO. AND THEN IN ANY CASE THE CITY OF OUR WHOEVER WOULD BE HARMED BY THAT WOULD STILL HAVE TO THEN CONTEND WITH THE SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY PROTECTIONS THAT THE CITY MIGHT MIGHT ENJOY AND OR THAT THE COUNTY WOULD ENJOY BY ANY FAULT THAT THAT MAY BE APPORTIONED TO IT. OK. IF I UNDERSTAND AND I'M NOT AN ATTORNEY I DON'T PRETEND TO BE ONE I PROBABLY KNOW ENOUGH JUST TO GET MYSELF IN TROUBLE HERE. BUT MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT EVEN THOUGH THE COUNTY BY CONTRACT WOULD TAKE OVER THAT LIABILITY THAT DOES NOT PRECLUDE SOMEONE FROM INCLUDING THE CITY OF TAMARACK IN ANY TYPE OF LAWSUIT GOING FORWARD FOR DAMAGES. CORRECT. THAT'S CORRECT. BUT THE COUNTY WOULD IS AGREEING CONTRACTUALLY TO PAY THEY SET TO COVER THE LIABILITY THAT THE CITY OF TAMARACK WOULD WOULD INCUR COVER AND AS FAR AS COURT COSTS. YES BUT YOU'D STILL YES YOU WOULD STILL BE AT POTENTIALLY RIGHT AS A PROPERTY OWNER.

[02:00:03]

NORMALLY YOU CAN SOMEONE FILED A LAWSUIT THEY WOULD STILL NAME ALL POSSIBLE PARTNERS THAT THEY COULD GO AFTER IT WOULD JUST BE THAT THE COUNTY HAS AGREED PURSUANT TO THE CONTRACT TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FIGHT ANY OF THE FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS THAT THE CITY WOULD HAVE UNDER THE PROPERTY. OK. AS FAR AS THE OTHER CITIES THAT THIS LAND SWAP WAS PUT BEFORE MY UNDERSTANDING WAS THAT YOU SAID IT WAS OFFERED TO DAVY I'M SORRY TO DANA BEACH AND TO HOLLAND TO LBJ. IS THAT CORRECT.

THERE WERE DISCUSSIONS WITH THOSE TO WHOM AND THIS APOLOGY. YES. AND THEY CHOSE NOT TO GO FORWARD. OR WAS THAT THE COUNTY'S DECISION. I'M NOT AWARE OF WHAT THE FINAL DECISION WAS. OBVIOUSLY WE HAVEN'T. WE DID NOT MOVE FORWARD. THEN ARE BEAUTIFUL WITH HALLANDALE BEACH. SO IT COULD HAVE BEEN THE CITIES WHO MADE THAT DETERMINATION. SO YOU DON'T KNOW WHO MADE THE DETERMINATION TO STOP THE DISCUSSION. I WAS NOT IN THOSE PARTICULAR MEETINGS BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN THE CITIES THEY MADE A DETERMINATION NOT TO DO THOSE PARTICULAR FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS. IS THERE SOMEONE FROM THE COUNTY HERE THAT WAS IN THOSE NEGOTIATIONS. NO. NO. OK. AGAIN THERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS THAT I ASKED IN MONDAY'S MEETING THAT I'M GOING TO BE ASKING AGAIN. AND THE FIRST ONE IS WE HAVE A 50. THE. WE'RE CONTEMPLATING A 50 YEAR LEASE WITH 10 YEAR RENEWALS. COULD YOU EXPLAIN AGAIN HOW THOSE RENEWALS WOULD WORK THE RENEWALS SO WITH RESPECT TO REYNOSA JUST BE AUTOMATIC UNLESS THEY'RE UNLESS THEY'RE TERMINATED PRIOR TO WITH NOTICE PRIOR TO THE RENEWAL PERIOD BUT THEY OTHERWISE AUTOMATICALLY RENEW. CORRECT. AND THERE'S NO SET NUMBER OF OF THOSE OVER IN THE WALLS. SO THIS COULD BE IN PERPETUITY. THAT'S CORRECT. YES. OK. AGAIN ON THE TERMINATION OF THE LEASE WHICH IS IN TWO POINT THREE POINT ONE OF THE AGREEMENT AND THAT I ASKED THE QUESTION ON MONDAY UM ON TWO POINT THREE POINT ONE ON THE TERMINATION OF THE LEASE. IT REQUIRES THAT THE CITY IF THE COUNTY WANTS THAT LAND BACK IT REQUIRES THE CITY TO GIVE IT BACK. NO QUESTIONS ASKED AT THE AFTER FIVE YEARS. SO THE CITY IS IS ENTITLED TO LEASE THE COUNTY PROPERTY TO THE COUNTY FOR FIVE YEARS AND THEN AFTER THE FIVE YEARS IF THEY UPON A DEMAND BY THE COUNTY THE CITY WOULD BE REQUIRED TO CONVEY THE PROPERTY BACK TO THE COUNTY IN 90 DAYS. AND THE COUNTY WOULD PAY ESSENTIALLY NOMINAL CONSIDERATION FOR TEN DOLLARS FOR THEIR PURCHASE. THAT'S TWO POINT THREE POINT FOUR. AND THAT'S MY NEXT QUESTION. BUT WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT ONE FOR A MOMENT. THE COUNTY'S DOING THIS LAND SWAP BECAUSE THE COUNTY CANNOT BUILD ON ITS OWN PARKLAND. CORRECT YES A CAMPBELL ON THAT PROPERTY. OK. IS THERE ANYTHING TO PRECLUDE THE COUNTY FROM OWNING THE LAND ONCE THE TOWERS BUILT. WE BELIEVE THAT ONCE THE TOWER IS BUILT AND IF WE REPURCHASED WESTLAKE PARK IS A LITTLE BIT SPECIAL IN OUR PARK SYSTEM AND HOW IT'S DESCRIBED IN OUR CHARTER ESSENTIALLY IF WE OWN PROPERTY IN WESTLAKE PARK IT BECOMES SUBJECT TO THE CHARTER PROVISION SO WE DON'T BELIEVE THAT WITH THE CHARTER PROVISION IN PLACE THAT THE COUNTY COULD COULD OWN THAT PARCEL. AND BUILD THE TOWER. CORRECT. I GET THAT THE COUNTY CAN'T OWN THAT PARCEL AND BUILD ON IT AND OPERATE THE TOWER AS WELL BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE USED FOR PARK PURPOSES AND SO ONCE EVERY ONCE NOT MERELY BUILDING A TOWER WOULD BE PARK PURPOSES OPERATING AND MAINTAINING THE TOWER WOULD BE A WOULD NOT BE A PARK PURPOSE. OK. BACK TO TWO POINT THREE POINT ONE THE PROVISION THAT SAYS ON TERMINATION OF THE LEASE THE CITY WOULD BE

[02:05:07]

REQUIRED TO GO TO REENTER A LEASE WITH THE SAME PROVISIONS AS THE TERMINATED LEASE CORRECT SO THAT THAT IS CORRECT WHAT IT SAYS IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF A HOLDOVER TO AN INITIAL DRAFT OF THE LEASE. BUT YOU KNOW NOW AS DRAFTED IT DOESN'T WE DON'T CONTEMPLATE THERE BEING A TERMINATION JUST THE AUTOMATIC RENEWAL. AND SO THE ONLY TIME THAT THE LEASE WOULD TERMINATE IS GOING TO BE WHEN THE COUNTY IS BUYING THE PROPERTY BACK AS OPPOSED TO. AND AS INITIALLY DRAFTED WHERE IT WAS GOING TO BE JUST A 50 YEAR LEASE WITHOUT THE AUTOMATIC RENEWALS. OK BUT WHY WOULD THE COUNTY BUY THE LAND BACK IF IT COULDN'T HAVE THE TOWER THERE AND COULD NOT UTILIZE THE TOWER. SO IN THE CASE FOR INSTANCE THAT THE TOWER WERE NOT BUILT ON THE PROPERTY IN THE CASE THAT THE TECH RIGHT. SO THIS IS A LONG TERM LEASE CONTEMPLATING 50 YEARS AND PERPETUAL 50 YEARS AND PERPETUAL RENEWAL. SO IN THE CASE THAT YOU KNOW THERE'S A I THINK THAT ONE OF THE EARLIER SPEAKERS SAID THERE'S A SATELLITE SYSTEM IF WE'RE NO LONGER OPERATING A RADIO TOWER AND THEN IT NEEDS IT CAN GO BACK TO PARK PURPOSE THEN THE COUNTY WOULD WANT TO REACQUIRE THE PROPERTY AND MAKE IT PART OF THE PARK AGAIN. WELL I GET THAT AND I'LL READ THE LANGUAGE SO THAT WE KNOW WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HERE. UPON TERMINATION OF THE LEASE THE PARTIES AGREED TO ENTER INTO A SUBSEQUENT LEASE ON THE SAME TERMS AS STATED IN SECTION TWO POINT THREE INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE SAME FINANCIAL AND DURATION TERMS AND THE REPURCHASE RIGHT STATED BELOW. THAT MEANS AGAIN WE WILL BE BINDING. THIS COMMISSION WILL BE BINDING A FUTURE COMMISSION TO TERMS OF AN AGREEMENT IN THE FUTURE.

THAT'S CORRECT AND THAT IS SOMETHING I AM NOT WILLING TO DO. EACH COMMISSION SHOULD BE ABLE TO DETERMINE FOR THEMSELVES WHAT CONDITIONS AND LIMITATIONS ARE IN THEIR OWN AGREEMENTS. IN THREE POINT TWO COULD YOU GIVE ME AN EXAMPLE OF NOT FOR CAUSE OR CONVENIENCE IS THE TERMINOLOGY THAT'S USED IN THEIR WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A TERMINATION BREACH OR CHALLENGE. COULD YOU GIVE ME AN EXPLANATION OF WHAT THAT WOULD MEAN IN THIS INSTANCE. IN TERMS OF THE WHAT THE FIRST SENTENCE OF SECTION THREE POINT TWO MEANS YES THE GOAL IS TO SAY SIMPLY THAT THE THE AGREEMENT SHOULD NOT BE TERMINATED EXCEPT PURSUANT TO THE TERMS HERE WHICH ARE THAT THE COUNTY SHOULD PURCHASE THE PROPERTY BACK THAT WOULD BE THIS ONLY CIRCUMSTANCE THAT THE AGREEMENT WOULD BE TERMINATED AND THE REMAINDER OF THE PARAGRAPH DESCRIBES THAT IF THERE IS A BREACH BY EITHER PARTY THEN WHAT WE COULD WHAT EACH OF US COULD SEEK IN THE COURT HEARING IN THE COURT IS MERE PERFORMANCE OF EACH OTHER'S OBLIGATION UNDER THE LEASE. SO WE COULD SEEK TO TERMINATE THE LEASE OR SEEK TO RECOVER ANYTHING OTHER THAN OUR OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE LEASE WHICH IS THAT THE COUNTY WOULD CONTINUE TO PAY THE CITY AND MAINTAIN THE PROPERTY AND PERFORM ALL OF ITS OBLIGATIONS AS THE TENANT AND THAT THE CITY OF TAMARACK WOULD CONTINUE TO LEASE THE PROPERTY TO THE COUNTY UNDER THE TERMS OF THE AGREEMENT. WHAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED A BREACH BY THE COUNTY. THE FAILURE TO TO BEAR THE FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES FOR INSTANCE WOULD IT INCLUDE CORRECT MAINTENANCE OF THE TOWER AND THE FACILITIES AROUND THE TOWER. THAT'S CORRECT. ALMOST DUMB GUYS ALMOST DONE. YOU JUST MENTIONED COURT OF LAW BUT DOES NOT SECTION THREE POINT EIGHT SAY THAT ANYTHING THAT ANY DISAGREEMENTS

[02:10:02]

THAT WE HAVE WOULD NOT BE TAKEN TO COURT. NO IT WOULD BE TAKEN TO COURT. THERE IS JUST A WAIVER OF A JURY TRIAL RIGHT. SO YOU'RE NOT HAVING A JURY MAKE A DECISION.

YOU'RE HAVING A JUDGE MAKE A DECISION AS TO THE INTERPRETATION OF THE CONTRACT.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE FOR RIGHT NOW. THANK YOU VERY MUCH VICE MAYOR. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I'D FIRST LIKE TO THANK THE RESIDENTS FOR HOLLYWOOD AND YOUR VICE MAYOR AND COMMISSIONER FOR COMING OUT. I KNOW IT'S QUITE A WAYS TO COME AND WE APPRECIATE YOU TAKING THE TIME TO TELL US HOW YOU FEEL AND I I HAVE AN AFFINITY FOR HOLLYWOOD. I USED TO LIVE THERE YEARS AGO SO I UNDERSTAND HOW YOU FEEL. WE'VE BEEN THROUGH THE TOWER HERE AND WE VIRTUALLY HAVE IT IN OUR BACKYARD. SO AS I WAS SITTING HERE LISTENING TO EVERYTHING THE COUNTY HAD TO SAY AND EVERYTHING YOU HAD TO SAY. I TRIED TO BACK AWAY FROM IT FOR A MINUTE AND LOOK AT IT NOT FROM A COUNTY VIEW AND NOT FROM THE RESIDENTS VIEW AND THIS IS NOT A NICE POSITION FOR US TO BE ON. UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE SO LOOKING AT IT THAT WAY TO ME IT BECAME A SAFETY ISSUE AND LOOKING AT IT AS A SAFETY ISSUE I WOULD NOT WANT ANY CHILD TO EVER BE PUT IN DANGER AGAIN. LIKE OUR CHILDREN AND PARK LAND WHERE I WOULD NOT WANT ANY MAN AND A WOMAN ANY OF OUR FIRST RESPONDERS TO BE PUT IN DANGER BECAUSE OF IT. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE WE NEED TO GET THIS SYSTEM ONLINE. IT WAS A DIFFICULT DECISION FOR US AND WE WENT THROUGH THE SAME SITE ISSUES THAT YOU'VE GONE THROUGH. I GET IT. I UNDERSTAND. BUT LOOKING AT IT FROM MY POINT OF VIEW CLEARLY IT'S A SAFETY ISSUE AND WE NEED TO GET THIS SYSTEM ONLINE. WE NEED TO GET IT MOVING. THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER GALEN ARE YOU AVAILABLE. I AM AVAILABLE. ALL RIGHT. PLEASE GO AND ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE. I JUST WANT TO FIRST CLARIFY A COMMENT MADE BY THE CITY ATTORNEY FOR THE WASH UP ON MONDAY. I AM THE COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR. IF GARLAND COUNTY OWNED LAND IN TAMARACK AND HE CONFIRMED THE ANSWER WAS YES. AND THEN I ASKED IF THE COUNTY CAN NOT COME TO AN AGREEMENT ON A PIECE OF LAND THAT THEY OWN THE TAMARACK. COULD THEY GO TO ANOTHER CITY NEGOTIATE A DEAL WITH ANOTHER CITY TO DO A LAND SWAP WITHOUT OUR APPROVAL OR AUTHORIZATION. COULD THAT HAPPEN. YES. I JUST WANT TO CONFIRM THAT THAT IS STILL CORRECT. YOU'RE A LITTLE GARBLED. SO I'M GOING TO JUST REPEAT IT FOR CLARIFICATION. I BELIEVE THE QUESTION YOU'RE ASKING IS TO THIS COUNTY. ARE YOU ASKING FOR THE COUNTY OR THE CITY ATTORNEY TO ANSWER FOR THE CITY ATTORNEY MET WITH THE CITY ATTORNEY MADE A STATEMENT ABOUT LAND IN TOWN LIKE THE COUNTY MAY OWN. AND I THINK IT COMPLIED WITH WHAT WAS CLARIFIED BY THE COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR AT THE WORKSHOP ON MONDAY. SO IS WHAT I DO KNOW FROM THE ATTORNEY WHAT HE STATED EARLIER IN THE MEETING DOES THAT COMPLICATE OR CLARIFY WHAT WAS STATED BY THE COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR ON MONDAY CITY ATTORNEY. I MEAN IF I CAME AT AMEREN COMMISSION THEY TRY TO FRAME OUT THE QUESTION AND COMMISSIONER JELENA IF I'M MISSTATING IT YOU CAN CERTAINLY CORRECT ME BUT THE ISSUE THAT WAS DISCUSSED AT THE MONDAY WORKSHOP RELATED TO THE ABILITY OF THE COUNTY TO DO THIS TRANSACTION WITH ANOTHER MUNICIPALITY THE ANSWER IS THEY COULD THE END RESULT IS IS THAT THE CITY OF TAMARACK OWNS PROPERTY ADJACENT TO CITY HALL ON WHICH THERE IS A 911 TOWER AND THE 911 TOWER. IT EXISTS UNDER A LONG TERM LEASE BETWEEN THE CITY AND THE COUNTY AND THE CITY OWNS THAT LAND. THE PROPOSAL BEING OFFERED BY THE COUNTY UNDER THIS IN A LOCAL AGREEMENT RELATES TO THE WESTLAKE PROPERTY WHICH AT THE END OF ANY DAY THAT YOU WOULD LOOK AT WOULD PLACE OWNERSHIP OF LAND IN WEST LAKE IN THE CITY OF TAMARACK OVER WHICH THE TOWER WOULD BE LOCATED. TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE IF THE COUNTY WERE TO OFFER THIS OPTION DON'T KNOW THE MINE IS APPARENTLY UNDER THE COUNTY CHARTER IT COULD AT THE MOMENT THAT'S NOT THE PROPOSAL ON THE TABLE. THE PROPOSAL ON THE TABLE IS TO THE CITY OF TAMARACK TO BE THE EXCHANGE PARTNER ON THIS TRANSACTION. MY MISTAKE AND MR. JEFFERSON THAT THAT'S THE DEAL. THAT'S CLEARLY TO DO SO. THE QUESTION THAT I THINK COMMISSIONER GALEN

[02:15:04]

WISELY ASKED AND ALSO COMMISSIONER BOLTON WAS COULD THE COUNTY DO AN EXCHANGE ON PROPERTY WHICH THE CITY HAS CURRENTLY WITH ITS TOWER. AND THE ANSWER IS NO BECAUSE UNDER THE CURRENT SITUATION THE COUNTY IS UNDER IS A LONG TERM TENANT ON THE CITY'S PROPERTY AS THE TENANT IN POSSESSION WITH THEIR TOWER. SO THEY ONLY ARE A TENANT.

THEY DON'T OWN THAT THEY CAN'T EXCHANGE OR EXCHANGE THE CITY'S LAND FOR ANY LAND UNLESS THE CITY WOULD CONSENT. OK SO THAT'S NOT MY QUESTION. MY QUESTION IS I ASK. MR. JEFFERSON IF THE COUNTY OWNS LAND IN TAMARACK MICHAEL STERN IT'S ANSWERED YET AND SO SHOULD THE COUNTY DO A LAND SWAP WITH ANOTHER CITY WE DON'T APPROVE OF A DECISION. THE OF WHAT THEY'RE DOING RIGHT NOW WHERE TAMARA IS PARTICIPATING AND BUYING THE LAND IN HOLLYWOOD COULD THEY RECRUIT ANOTHER CITY TO BUY THE LAND IN TAMARACK YOU CAN FIND THE ANSWER WAS YES OR NO. I WANT TO KNOW THAT. IF IF I MAY HAVE THAT CONFIRMATION MEETING TONIGHT. LET ME JUST MAKE SURE I FULLY UNDERSTAND THE QUESTION. TODAY THE COUNTY DOES OWN SOME LAND WITHIN THE CITY OF TAMARACK. WE ARE THE PROPERTY OWNER SINCE WE ARE THE PROPERTY OWNER COULD WE EXCHANGE LAND WITH THAT PROPERTY YET WE OWN HERE WITH ANOTHER CITY. IS IT IS THE COMMISSIONER. IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE ASKING. YEAH. YES IT DOES ALLOW FOR US TO EXCHANGE PROPERTY FOR COUNTY OWNED PROPERTY. THAT'S IN THE CITY OF TAMARACK WITH ANOTHER CITY. IF WE CHOSE TO GO THAT PARTICULAR ROLE WE DON'T BELIEVE THERE IS ANY PARCEL OF LAND THAT WE'RE OBVIOUSLY WE'RE NOT LOOKING AT THIS STAGE IN ANY PARCEL LANDS WITHIN THE CITY. TAMARA WOULD ANY OTHER CITY. WELL YES I MEAN STATUTES ALLOWS US TO DO THOSE PARTICULAR THINGS. WAYNE COUNTY ON A PARTICULAR LAND IF I MAY INTERRUPT MEASURING GO ON MR. JEFFERSON. MR. COMMISSIONER IN DOES NOT POSSIBLY HAVE THE MAP THAT WE WERE PROVIDED WITH THIS EVENING. SO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH HIM WHAT'S ON THIS MAP. SURE. THE MAP COMMISSIONER THAT I THAT WE PROVIDED TO THE COMMISSIONERS FOR TAMARACK IS SHOWING THE HOLLOW OUR HOLLYWOOD TOWER SITE PROPOSED LOCATIONS AND THIS DEALS WITH WESTLAKE PARK. I'M SORRY WHICH ACTUALLY IS THE AERIAL LOCATION MAP BROWARD COUNTY PARCELS WITHIN THE CITY OF TAMARACK AND KNOW THAT THAT'S THE POINT WAS WAS CONVEYED. SO MY POINT WAS WHAT'S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW WHERE WE ARE POTENTIALLY GOING TO ACQUIRE LAND IN HOLLYWOOD WITHOUT MENTION AUTHORIZATION OR APPROVAL OF THE HOLLYWOOD COMMISSIONERS. COULD THAT SAME THING HAPPEN IN THE CITY OF TAMPA. WITHOUT OUR APPROVAL OR AUTHORIZATION AND THE ANSWER IS YES AND NO. AND I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT PERSONALLY. AND WE OBVIOUSLY THE E-MAIL FROM AT LEAST ONE HOLLYWOOD COMMISSIONER WHO I SPOKE WITH TODAY AND I THINK WE SHOULD GIVE DEFERENCE TO THE LEADERSHIP OF THAT CITY TO MAKE DECISIONS. I UNDERSTAND THERE'S BEEN SOME NEGOTIATIONS FOR YEARS BUT CAMERA ACTION NOT BE INVOLVED IN HOLLYWOOD BUSINESS. IN MY VIEW THE COUNTY AND THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD NEED TO COME TO AN AGREEMENT. THEY'VE HAD DISCUSSIONS ON WHICH SITES WORK BEST. THERE ARE SOME RESIDENTS AND THE HOLLYWOOD COMMISSION DO NOT AGREE IN THE MEETING ON MONDAY. I REFERENCED AN ARTICLE I READ IN THE SENSE THAT NO THAT WAS WRITTEN IN JUNE THAT STATED THE CITY HIGHWAY COMMISSION VOTED 7 0 AGAINST THE LOCATION IN HOLLYWOOD AND THE 50 CAL ADMINISTRATORS THERE. THAT WAS THE WHOLE ARTICLE. THEY HAD THINK SINCE THAT'S NO LONGER THE CASE. WELL BASED ON MY DISCUSSIONS TODAY IT STILL IS THE CASE THAT IS NOT A PREFERRED LOCATION. THEY ARE NOT AGAIN HAVING AN ADDITIONAL POWER. THEY JUST WANT IT AT A DIFFERENT LOCATION. AND SO I BASED ON THE DISCUSSIONS TODAY BASED ON THE ITEMS THAT COMMISSIONER FISHMAN POINTED OUT TODAY I THINK WE HAVE ENOUGH CAUSE TO DELAY THIS VOTE ALLOW FOR CONTINUE NEGOTIATIONS AND A DEAL TO BE DONE BETWEEN HOLLYWOOD AND THE COUNTY SO THAT WE WE DON'T NEED TO BE INVOLVED IN THIS TRANSACTION. ANOTHER QUESTION I HAVE FOR COMMISSIONER FISHMAN ASKED ABOUT WHAT OTHER CITIES WILL OFFER THIS DEAL VENUE BEACH IN HOLLYWOOD WERE WERE PARTS OF DISCUSSION. I WONDER WHAT THAT MEANS. SO MR. JEFFERSON YOU WERE NOT INVOLVED IN THOSE DEALS WAS THE ASSISTANT COUNTY ATTORNEY INVOLVED KNOWS THAT CUSTOM THIS IS ANY CASH IN DEPUTY COUNTY ATTORNEY. I WAS NOT INVOLVED IN ALL OF THE DISCUSSIONS TO THE EXTENT THAT WE WERE THAT OR THAT I

[02:20:04]

WAS INVOLVED IN THEM. WE LOOKED AT AT LEAST AN INITIAL MANNER OF A NUMBER OF SITES THAT COULD POSSIBLY HAVE BEEN SWAPPED. AND SO I KNOW THAT FOR INSTANCE WITH DANIA BEACH WE'RE LOOKING AT PROPERTY IN DANIA BEACH THAT THEY WOULD BE SWAPPING WITH US FOR THEIR PROPERTY. AND BUT I'M NOT SURE. SO WITH WITH MR. JEFFERSON'S RESPONSE WAS WE DIDN'T KNOW NEITHER OF US IS AWARE OF KIND OF HOW THE CITY'S DECIDED NOT TO TO ENGAGE IN THAT TRANSACTION. SO WHAT STAFF MEMBERS WERE INVOLVED IN THE DISCUSSIONS WITH THOSE TWO CITY I'M SURE IT WAS THE COUNTY I MEAN IT KIND OF ADMINISTRATOR ALONG WITH THE CITY MANAGERS OF THOSE PARTICULAR MUNICIPALITIES. I'M SURE IT COULD HAVE BEEN THE COUNTY ATTORNEY AS WELL INVOLVED IN THOSE PARTICULAR DISCUSSIONS BECAUSE THIS IS THIS IS A LAND SWAP. YOU KNOW THOSE THOSE ARE DECISIONS THAT ARE MADE AT THAT PARTICULAR LEVEL WHEN IT COMES TO LAND SWAPS. NOW COMMISSIONER IF I CAN GO BACK JUST VERY BRIEFLY WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE PARCEL OF LANDS THAT WE PROVIDED TO YOU ASSOCIATED WITH THAT CITY TAMARACK THE MAP THAT WE PROVIDED TO THE CITY AT TAMARACK DEALT WITH LOCATIONS SUCH AS WHAT MIGHT PARK SOME RIGHT AWAY. TAMARACK COMMUNITY LIBRARY. SO THERE ARE PARCELS THAT WE DO ALL WITHIN THE CITY TAMARA AND SUCH AS WRITE A WAYS THAT MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR LAND SWAP AT A PARTICULAR TIME BUT WE PROVIDED INFORMATION THAT WAS REQUESTED OF US TO SHOW THE PARCEL OF LAND THAT WE OWN WITHIN THE CITY OF TAMARACK BACK. I APPRECIATE THAT. ANOTHER QUESTION WAS THIS LAND SWAP DEAL SHARED WITH HOLLYWOOD BEFORE AT SOME POINT BEFORE IT WAS DISCUSSED ABOUT THE MONEY COMMITMENT WORKSHOP THE DISCUSSION ON LAND SWAPS WAS DEFINITELY COMMUNICATED TO THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD. THAT WAS PART OF DISCUSSION AND IT CAME UP IN MULTIPLE DISCUSSIONS. AS FAR AS THE LEASE AGREE ON THE DEAL THAT WE HAVE WITH THE CITY OF TAMARACK I'M NOT AWARE IF THAT WAS COMMUNICATED TO THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD HAD AN EMERGENCY MEETING ON MONDAY TO DISCUSS THIS POTENTIAL DEAL BECAUSE THEY FOUND OUT ABOUT IT LAST FRIDAY. ARE YOU AWARE OF THE OUTCOME OF DISCUSSIONS THAT THEY HAD AT THAT EMERGENCY MEETING. I'M AWARE OF THE DISCUSSIONS THAT TOOK PLACE. I'M AWARE OF CERTAIN COMMENTS THAT WERE MADE. OUR BOARD HAD A DISCUSSION YESTERDAY YESTERDAY REGARDING THIS PARTICULAR ITEM AND THEY MOVE FORWARD WITH APPROVAL OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN US AND THE CITY OF TAMARACK. I BOUGHT OUR BOARD HAD MULTIPLE CONVERSATIONS. WE WOULDN'T BE HERE TONIGHT IF THIS WAS NOT SOMETHING THAT OUR BOARD WANTED US TO MOVE FORWARD WITH. THIS IS A ITEM THAT IS IS NEEDED AND WE JUST ASK FOR YOUR PARTNERSHIP WITH. SO ON MONDAY YOU INDICATED THAT THE BASED ON YOUR STATEMENT THE HOLLYWOOD COMMISSION WAS IN AGREEMENT AND THAT THE ARTICLE I REFERENCED IN THE JUNE SOMETHING NO NEWSPAPER WAS OLD. SO TO DATE YOU BELIEVE THAT THE COMMISSION WOULD SUPPORT THIS TOWER AT WESTLAKE PARK. THE MAJORITY WILL BE IT WILL BE AN AGREEMENT OF THIS DEAL TODAY. WELL IF I GO BACK COMMISSIONER ON YOUR QUESTION FROM MONDAY'S DISCUSSION LET ME LET ME BACK UP ALL OF IT. I'M GOING BACK TO WHEN THE.

CITY OF HOLLYWOOD APPROVED THE INITIAL AGREEMENT WITH US ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SITE AND THEY ALSO APPROVED THE SITE PLAN ASSOCIATED WITH THAT SITE. SO THEY APPROVED THIS PARTICULAR SITE. THEY KNEW FROM THE STANDPOINT OF WHAT THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT THAT THIS SITE WAS A OPTION. SO THAT VOTE ON THAT PARTICULAR NIGHT WAS DEALT WITH THE SET SITE PLANNED OUT WITH THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT TO SAY THAT THEY WOULD APPROVE THAT. SO THEY WERE AWARE OF THE APPROVAL OF THAT PARTICULAR ITEM AND COMMISSIONER JUST TO CLARIFY AND I SEE MR. SCHUMAN COMING UP HERE. BUT YOU KNOW THE TIMING OF IT ALFONZO IS INDICATED THAT AT THE TIME WE SPOKE TO YOU ON MONDAY MORNING WE THE OFFICIAL ACTION BY THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD WAS TO ACCEPT THE THE DIRECTION OF THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT AND GO FORWARD WITH OUR AGREEMENT UNDER THE INTER LOCAL AGREEMENT. WE MET WITH THE CITY OF TAMARACK ON MONDAY MORNING AND THEN ON MONDAY AFTERNOON THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD HELD A MEETING WHERE TO DISCUSS THIS

[02:25:04]

TRANSACTION AS WELL. I DON'T KNOW AMONGST OTHER THINGS THAT I KNOW THAT THEY GAVE DIRECTION TO THEIR CITY ATTORNEY TO EXPLORE SOME LEGAL ACTION THAT THEY COULD TAKE AS WELL AFTER THAT. SO THEIR POSITION MAY HAVE CHANGED. I BELIEVE THAT THEIR POSITION CHANGED AFTER MR. JEFFERSON AND I SPOKE WITH YOU ALL ABOUT THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD'S OFFICIAL ACTION ON THAT WHICH WAS IN CONTRAST TO THE EARLIER JUNE VOTE THAT THEY TOOK WHETHER IT WAS A ZERO A NO VOTE ON THE TRANSACTION THEN THEY TOOK A SUBSEQUENT VOTE TO MOVE FORWARD UNDER PURSUANT TO THE TERMS OF THE INTER LOCAL AGREEMENT AND THEN ON MONDAY I KNOW THAT THEY GAVE SOME DIRECTION TO THEIR CITY ATTORNEY REGARDING EXPLORING OPTIONS FOR STEPPING BACK ON THE SITE PLAN APPROVAL.

SO SO MAKING THE DECISION TODAY BASED ON WHAT WAS DISCUSSED AT THE WORKSHOP ON MONDAY WE'RE ACTUALLY WORKING ON INCOMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION BECAUSE WE DON'T WE HAVE NOT BEEN UPDATED ON THE RESULTS OF THE DISCUSSION. THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD COMMISSION HAD MONDAY AFTERNOON IF I MAY. I DON'T BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE AN ACCURATE INFORMATION. WE HAVE A LOCAL AGREEMENT. WE HAVE A BINDING AGREEMENT. WE'D LIKE TO SEE THE HOLLYWOOD STAND BY THAT PARTICULAR AGREEMENT SO WE CAN MOVE FORWARD WITH IT. WESLEY PARK OK SO I WOULDN'T MIND HEARING FROM THE COMMISSIONER FROM HOLLYWOOD AND SITTING BEHIND YOU MR. I'M PRESUMING YOU'D LIKE TO SPEAK. THANK YOU COMMISSIONER GALEN. I JUST WANT TO POINT OUT ONE THING SPECIFICALLY AND THAT IS PRIOR TO THIS WEEKEND THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD WAS NEVER CONTACTED REGARDING THIS PARTICULAR TRANSACTION AT ALL. AND SO IT'S IT'S HARD TO SIT HERE WITHOUT BEING GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO CLARIFY THIS. SO I APPRECIATE YOUR REACHING OUT TO ME VERY MUCH JUST NOW. COMMISSIONER GALEN I ALSO IF I MIGHT JUST TOUCH BASE ON THE VICE MAYOR'S CONCERNS OBVIOUSLY YOUR CONCERNS ARE OUR CONCERNS. THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD HAS TWO TOWERS AS HAS TWO LOCATIONS. OUR WEST LOCATION WAS APPROVED. IT'S A TOWER. IT'S GOING UP. SO I DON'T WANT YOU TO TO FEEL THAT IT'S A NOT IN MY BACKYARD SITUATION. WE ACCEPTED A TOWER. NO PROBLEM. THE SITUATION IS DIFFERENT IN THAT THERE IS ANOTHER LOCATION THAT IS VIABLE WHEN THE COUNTY AND I EMPHASIZE IT WAS THE COUNTY WHO SELECTED THE CURRENT LOCATION THAT'S IN DISPUTE WHEN THIS LOCATION WAS SELECTED BY THE COUNTY THE BUILDING THAT THE CITY IS PROPOSING AND ENCOURAGING DID NOT EXIST. IT'S A NEW STRUCTURE. IT WAS COMPLETED APPROXIMATELY A YEAR AGO. SO THIS WHOLE DISCUSSION ABOUT THE CIRC AND THE AVAILABILITY OF A LOCATION TO PROVIDE COVERAGE IN THIS AREA DIDN'T START UNTIL ONE YEAR AGO WHEN THIS BUILDING WAS COMPLETED AND THE LAST THING I WANT TO MENTION AS LONG AS I'M HERE IF YOU DON'T MIND COMMISSIONER GALEN IS CONCERNS. I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THE REFERENCE TO THE WATER TREATMENT PLANT THAT THE COUNTY HAD MADE TONIGHT. THIS THIS LOCATIONS COME UP REPEATEDLY. SO IF YOU CAN IMAGINE WE HAVE A PARK AND NEARBY WE HAVE A WATER TREATMENT FACILITY ON THAT WATER TREATMENT FACILITY PROPERTY IS A MUCH SMALLER COMMUNICATION TOWER IT'S A HUNDRED FEET VERSUS 300 FEET. AND SO THE COUNTY HAS REPEATEDLY SAID JUST PUT THIS BIG TOWER WHERE THAT LITTLE TOWER IS AND OUR PUBLIC UTILITY STAFF HAS LOOKED AT THIS IN EXHAUSTIVE DETAIL. THERE ARE MULTIPLE MULTIPLE REASONS WHY THE TOWER THIS COMMUNICATION TOWER CANNOT BE LOCATED ON THAT WATER TREATMENT PLANT AND THESE REASONS HAVE BEEN COMMUNICATED REPEATEDLY TO THE COUNTY AND I WITHOUT READING AND VERY LENGTHY E-MAIL THAT OUR UTILITIES MANAGER HAS SENT TO THE COUNTY. I'LL JUST HIGHLIGHT A FEW OF THEM FOR YOU. OUR CITY IS GETTING READY TO DO A MAJOR SEPTIC TO SEWER CONVERSIONS AND THIS WATER WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THAT. IT WILL BE EXPANDED. THERE ARE CONCERNS WITH THE RECENT APPROVAL IN

[02:30:02]

THE CITY OF DEEP WELL I'M SORRY WHEN TO GET THE PROPER WORDING IN FRONT OF ME A DEEP INJECTION WELLS IN THAT LOCATION. THERE ARE MANY TREATMENT PLANTS WHERE THIS TYPE OF INFRASTRUCTURE IS SUBJECT TO HIGH LEVEL OF SECURITY BY THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY. SO WE HAVE ADDITIONAL SECURITY ISSUES AT WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANTS THAT WILL NOT BE ENHANCED THE SAFETY THERE WILL NOT BE ENHANCED IF A TOWER WERE LOCATED THERE. SO THIS GOES ON AND ON THE WE HAVE MANY USERS OF OUR TREATMENT PLANT THAT HAVE A VESTED INTEREST IN THE PROJECT AND HOLLYWOOD INCLUDING THE COUNTY PEMBROKE PINES HALLANDALE DANYA PEMBROKE PARK AND MIRAMAR. THEY ALL UTILIZE OUR SERVICES AT THIS PLANT AND IT IS EXPECTED TO BE INCREASED. I DON'T KNOW. VICE MAYOR CLARY IF I'M MISSING ANY POINTS ABOUT IT BUT WE'RE HAPPY TO SHARE WITH YOU THE EMAIL WHY I WON'T. WHY THAT LOCATION IS NOT AN OPTION FOR US. BUT TO TO COMMISSIONER GUILLEN'S POINT YOU HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD THE REFERENCES TO SITE PLAN APPROVALS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. ALL OF THAT TOOK PLACE AFTER OUR CITY ENTERED INTO AN INTRA LOCAL AGREEMENT. AND THE CONCERN THAT WE HAVE IS THAT THAT INTER LOCAL AGREEMENT THAT WE EXECUTED WITH THE COUNTY WAS BASED ON INCOMPLETE INFORMATION. AND PART OF THAT INCOMPLETE INFORMATION THAT'S WHAT'S IN FRONT OF YOUR COMMISSION TODAY. THE COST ASSOCIATED WITH THIS LAND TRANSACTION IT WAS REPRESENTED TO US THAT THERE WERE NO OTHER COSTS NO LEASE COSTS NO NOTHING.

AND SO IT'S AN IMPORTANT POINT. YOU KNOW WE'RE HERE IN PART FOR EXACTLY WHAT COMMISSIONER FISHMAN WAS DESCRIBING AND THAT IS YOU KNOW THIS THIS CAN HAPPEN TO ANY CITY. IT'S NOT A DIRECT SWAP. YOU'RE GOING THROUGH A THIRD CITY OF DAVIE AND I THINK THAT YOU KNOW PUTTING OURSELVES IN YOUR SHOES WE KNOW YOU'RE IN A DIFFICULT POSITION AND WE DEEPLY APPRECIATE YOU HEARING US TONIGHT. SO THANK YOU SO MUCH COMMISSIONER GALEN. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I CAN TRY TO ANSWER FOR YOU. NO I THINK I WOULD SAY THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU. COMMISSIONER GOTTEN YOUR GUN. IS THAT CORRECT. I JUST WANT TO MAKE ANOTHER COMMENT. SO I MEAN I'M NOT NTI BROWARD COUNTY. I BELIEVE THAT BOTH THE COUNTY AND THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD SHOULD HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB OF COMING UP WITH A DEAL SO THAT IT DID NOT FORCE THE COUNTY TO FIND OTHER WORK AROUNDS BY RECRUITING OTHER CITIES LIKE DANIA BEACH WENT INTO NEVER BE LIKE IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS DEAL HAPPEN BUT BOTH PARTIES ARE NOW AT A STANDSTILL. IT APPEARS THAT THE COUNTY HAS A LITTLE BIT OF LEVERAGE NOW BECAUSE THEY'RE ON THE CUSP OF EXECUTING THIS DEAL AND REALLY GOING AROUND THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD. IF I PUT MYSELF IN HOLLYWOOD SHOES I WOULD LIKE IT IF ANOTHER CITY NEGOTIATED A DEAL WITH THE COUNTY TO GO AROUND US. SO MY VIEW WOULD BE TO TABLE THIS ITEM UNTIL THE NEXT COMMISSION MEETING OR A OR AT LEAST 30 DAYS GIVE BOTH SIDES 30 DAYS TO COME TO A DEAL. AND IF HOLLYWOOD AND THE COUNTY CAN'T COME TO A DEAL. THEN WE CAN MOVE FORWARD. BUT I THINK WE SHOULD HAVE ONE LAST DITCH EFFORT. FINALLY. YOU KNOW I WELL I DID NOT APPRECIATE EARLIER WHEN THIS MEETING STARTED IT WAS RAINING OVER FOLKS IN THE PARK LANE AREA AND STONEMAN DOUGLAS HIGH SCHOOL ALMOST TO PUT PRESSURE ON US TO RESOLVE THIS POTENTIAL SOLUTION. THE ISSUE THAT HAPPENED AT THE AIRPORT AN EMERGENCY FIELD WITH A TOWER THAT'S FINE BUT I WAS PREDICATED ON THE WRONG MAN HAVING A GUN STANDING APARTMENT THE WRONG MAN HAVING A GUN. I'M ON THE DANCE ALL THE TIME ANTI-GUN AND POSSIBLE. THAT'S THE REAL ISSUE. DON'T PUT THAT ON US. AS A PARENT I FEEL FOR THOSE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR CHILDREN AND DIFFERENT TRAFFIC TRAGEDIES AND EVEN THE FOLKS AT THE AIRPORT. BUT THAT'S NOT ON THE CITY OF TAMARACK. AND FINALLY I WAS AT THE COMMITTEE MEETING WHEN THE FORMER MAYOR WAS VEHEMENTLY OPPOSED TO THIS TOWER BEING IN TAMARACK. BUT WE GOT THAT DEAL DONE.

LET'S GIVE HOLLYWOOD A CHANCE TO GET THEIR DEAL DONE WITH THE COUNTY WITHOUT OUR INTERFERENCE. AND WITH THAT I QUOTE THANK YOU COMMISSIONER AND VICE MAYOR DID YOU REALIZE. NOT INTENTIONALLY. SORRY MR. I DO NOT SEE THE LIGHT LIT FOR ANYONE ELSE.

THEN I WILL ASK A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS. IT'S ACTUALLY OFF THE COUNTER. THANK YOU.

[02:35:11]

JUST SITTING ON SOME OF THE CONCERNS OUT MENTIONED FROM THE DAY IS THE CITY OF TAMARACK AT THIS TIME HAS TWO REGULAR PARCELS OF LAND THAT ARE OWNED BY THE COUNTY. IS THAT CORRECT. WOULD MOUNT PARK AND THE TAMARA COMMUNITY LIBRARY. THE OTHER LANDS ARE RIGHT A WAYS BASICALLY ROADWAY ROADWAYS AND SUCH. YES. OK THANK YOU. I TOO WANT TO THANK OUR COMMISSIONERS AND THE VICE MAYOR FROM HOLLYWOOD OUR RESIDENTS FROM HOLLYWOOD OUR RESIDENTS FROM TAMARACK HAVE SPOKEN ON THIS MATTER IN OUR COUNTY. I DO KNOW FROM WHEN WE WERE DEALING WITH THE ISSUE HERE IN TAMARACK THE TIME AND DEDICATION THAT THE COUNTY DID PUT FORTH WHEN WE WERE SAYING WE WANTED A DIFFERENT LOCATION WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE. THE HIRING OF OUTSIDE. EXPERTS FOR BOTH THE CITY AND FOR THE COUNTY TO HAVE THAT NEUTRAL THIRD PARTY THERE'S A LOT THAT GOES INTO THIS NO DOUBT. SO THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN HOLLYWOOD AND THE COUNTY IF I'M UNDERSTANDING THIS CORRECTLY CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND THE COUNTY HAD AN INDEPENDENT REPORT DONE THAT TOOK. BOTH PARCELS OF LAND INTO COUNTY INTO CONSIDERATION AND THROUGH THAT CONSIDERATION THE PARTIES AGREED THAT WHICHEVER PROPERTY WOULD BE THE CORRECT. THE RIGHT PROPERTY FOR THIS PROJECT.

KNOWING ALL ALONG WHAT IS FOR THE P 25 BOTH PARTIES WOULD AGREE WITH THAT INDEPENDENT PARTY. THAT. IS MY UNDERSTANDING CORRECT ON THAT. THAT'S CORRECT AND THAT'S PURSUANT TO THE FACT THAT THE COUNTY OWNED THE PROPERTY AND THEN APPLIED FOR THE LAND FOR THE SITE PLAN ON THE LAND USE PROCESS. SO IT WAS A RESOLUTION RATHER THAN GOING THROUGH THE CHAPTER 164 PROCESS OF THAT DISPUTE BETWEEN THE COUNTY AND THE AND THE CITY. THE COUNTY BELIEVE THAT WE WERE ENTITLED TO APPROVAL OF THE SITE PLAN. THE CITY DISAGREED AND SO RATHER THAN GOING THROUGH THE FORMAL FULL COURT PROCESS WE DECIDED TO GO TO HAVE AN EVALUATION OF THE TWO SITES. AND WHEN DID THE IDEA OF THIS SWAP FROM WITH THE COUNTY BRING IN THE CITY.

WHEN DID THE CITY OF TAMARACK GET INVOLVED IN THIS. SO JUST TO TO KIND OF TAKE A COUPLE STEPS BACK. SO AS I EXPLAINED THE ENTIRE LOCAL AGREEMENT WAS A RESOLUTION OF THE 164 PROCESS OF THE SITE PLANNING PROCESS. RIGHT. THE SWAP ISSUE IS ESSENTIALLY INDEPENDENT OF THE SITE PLAN ISSUE. SO EVEN IF CITY OF HOLLYWOOD HAD APPROVED OUR USE OF THE SITE FULLY SUPPORTED US BUILDING ON THE WEST SIDE PART PARCEL THE COUNTY WOULD STILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH SOME KIND OF SWAP IN ORDER TO RESOLVE THE CHARTER ISSUES WITH US DEVELOPING THE WESTLAKE PARK PARCEL. WE DON'T BELIEVE THAT THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD COULD HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THAT BECAUSE IF WE HAD TRANSFERRED FOR INSTANCE THE AIKEN PROPERTIES AT THE CITY THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD HAS A CHARTER PROVISION THAT ACTUALLY READS VERY SIMILARLY TO THE COUNTIES EXCEPT IT DOESN'T HAVE THE SWAP PROVISION THAT THE COUNTY'S CHARTER PROVISION HAS THEY HAVE THEY HAVE TO GO TO A VOTE IN ORDER TO GET THAT PART PARCEL SOLD GO TO THE VOTE OF THE POPULATION TO GET TO THE POPULATION OF THE CITY. SO THIS SWAP THE SWAP HAS TO TAKE PLACE REGARDLESS OF THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD'S POSITION ON THIS. AND WE AS AS HAS BEEN MENTIONED THE SWAP CAME UP DURING THE DISCUSSIONS OF THE ENTIRE LOCAL. BUT ONE OF THE REASONS WHY IT WASN'T DISCUSSED EXTENSIVELY IS BECAUSE IT WAS JUST SOMETHING THAT HAD TO TAKE PLACE JUST LIKE EARLIER ON IN THE PROCESS. WE APPROVED A WAIVER OF OUR DECLARATION OF OUR DECLARATION OF RESTRICTIVE COVENANTS ON THE PROPERTY WHICH HAD TO TAKE PLACE BY SUPER MAJORITY OF OUR OF OUR COMMISSIONER. SO THAT WAS THE FIRST THING THAT WE DID UNDER THE ENTIRE LOCAL ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE AGREED TO WAS THAT WE WEREN'T GOING TO MOVE FORWARD WITH ANY DEVELOPMENT OF THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD SITE OF THE WEST A PARK PERSONAL RIGHT. SO WE WERE KIND OF TAKING A BREAK WITH IT WITH THE DEVELOPMENT AND SO ONLY ONCE THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT CAME OUT WITH A DECISION ABOUT WHICH PARCEL THAT THEY WANTED TO GO THROUGH. THEN WE STARTED TO MOVE FORWARD AND IT'S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY YOU ALL RECEIVED THAT ACTUAL AGREEMENT AT A LATER DATE AT A LATER POINT. BUT WE WERE YOU KNOW HAD THE PRIOR TO STARTING THE ARE ENTERING INTO THE LOCAL AGREEMENT. WE HAD APPROACHED A NUMBER OF CITIES AND KIND OF WE'RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT AN OPTION FOR ADDRESSING THE PARK USE PART OF THE PARK PURPOSE ISSUE WITH THE CHARTER. BUT BUT THE CITY OF TAMARACK I BELIEVE CAME IN AS WE WERE GETTING TO THE END OF THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT AND A DECISION ABOUT HOW WE WERE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE WESTLAKE PARK CHARTER CHARTER PROVISION CAME IN AS WE GOT A DECISION FROM THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT AND WE WERE DECIDING HOW TO MOVE

[02:40:02]

FORWARD WITH ADDRESSING THAT SO THAT WE COULD DO THE DEVELOPMENT. SO IT WAS THE LAST NIGHT LIKE LAST MONTH. BUT IT WAS AT THE END OF YOUR FINDINGS WHEN YOU FOUND THAT YOU NEEDED TO DO THIS AS THE INDEPENDENT REPORT SHOWED THAT THE WESTLAKE PARK WAS THE BEST SITE AT BOTH SITES. THAT WAS INVESTIGATED AND THEREFORE YOU NEEDED TO DO AN LAND SWAP IN THE LAND SWAP THAT YOU ARE PROPOSING IS OUT OF THIS HUNDRED ACRE PARK. YOU WERE ACTUALLY ONLY TALKING ABOUT AN ACRE OF THE PARK AND WE'RE IN THIS ACRE OF PARK IT IS A SEVENTY FIVE BY SEVENTY FIVE PARCEL OF LAND FOR WHICH THE ACTUAL TOWER WILL BE ON. SO YEAH IT'S A FULL IT'S ACTUALLY THREE ACRES OF A TOTAL THREE ACRES BECAUSE THERE'S AN ACCESS ROAD SO IT'S A ROAD FROM SHERIDAN DOWN INTO THE PARK WHICH KIND OF WINS BECAUSE IT FOLLOWS AN EXISTING ROAD. MOST OF THE WAY THROUGH AND ONLY AT THE VERY END IS THERE A NEW PARCEL. BUT AGAIN YOU KNOW EVEN FURTHER ROAD WE DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE THE COUNTY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE HAS ISSUED OPINIONS WHERE WE HAVE FOUND THAT IT'S NOT A PARK PURPOSE A GRANTED EASEMENT OVER OUR PARK TO ANOTHER ADJOINING PROPERTY OWNER. AND SO WE DIDN'T WANT TO EVEN THOUGH WE ALREADY HAVE A ROAD IN THE PARK TO RUN INTO A PARK. I TRY TO PROVISION ISSUE BY EVEN USING THE ROAD EVEN THOUGH IT EXISTS TO ACCESS TO ACCESS THE TOWER. BUT WHAT WE'RE REALLY GOING TO BE DISTURBING IS THE SEVENTY FIVE FOOT BY 75 FOOT TOWER FACILITY BUT IN THE SWAMP IT'S A FULL THREE ACRES BECAUSE IT'S THE ACCESS ROAD PARTIAL PLUS THE TOWER PARCEL AND THE PARCEL IN ONE KEY NATURE CENTER AND DAVID'S ALSO THREE OR PARKS. SO WE'RE DOING A SWAP OF THREE. ONCE THEY GETS A LITTLE UNDER THREE ACRES FOR THREE ACRES OF PASSIVE PROPERTY. THANK YOU FOR ALL THE QUESTIONS I KNOW WE'RE PROBABLY AT THE POINT OF NEEDING TO MOVE THIS ON. THIS HAS BEEN SOMETHING THAT'S GONE ON FOR A WHILE. THIS COUNTY HAS BEEN WORKING ON THIS AND OTHER CITIES BEEN WORKING AT CITY HALL I WAS WORKING ON IT AND MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD IN THE COUNTY WILL STILL BE CONTINUING CONVERSATIONS AFTER TONIGHT. IT IS MY FEELING IN THE MATTER OF TIME THAT OUR CITY MY OPINION IS TO MOVE ON AND VOTE ON THIS. MY OPINION IS TO APPROVE IT AND THEN AS YOU DO YOUR DISCUSSIONS IF YOU SHOULD FIND THAT THIS NEED FOR OUR PROPERTY AND OUR PARTICIPATION IS NOT THERE ANYMORE THEN COME BACK TO US AND TELL US WE DON'T NEED YOU ANYMORE AND MOVE ON WITH WHATEVER YOU NEED TO DO WITH THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD. BUT I FEAR THAT IF WE ARE TAKING THIS AND SAYING WE ARE GOING TO WAIT AND DEFER FOR ANY LONGER EVEN MORE AND MORE DELAYS WILL COME. SO IT IS MY OPINION. WE VOTE FOR IT. AND THEN AGAIN I AM HAPPY TO HAVE YOU COME BACK TO US AND SAY IT US THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND THE COUNTY HAVE MADE A DECISION TO MOVE ON WITHOUT THE CITY OF TAMARACK AND THEN BE SOVIET. SO THAT IS MY. TIME. I ACTUALLY NOW SEE MORE LIGHTS LEFT THAN THEY WERE IN THE END. SO. SO MUCH FOR BEING LEFT ANYWAY. COMMISSIONER FISHMAN YOU ARE ON YOUR ROUND TO OUTRIGHT. THANK YOU MADAM MAYOR I JUST HAVE A COUPLE MORE QUESTIONS. UM WHEN DID THE ORIGINAL RFP FOR THE NEW RADIO SYSTEM GO OUT THEY'LL NOTICE THAT DATE. PROBABLY TWO YEARS AGO.

TWO YEARS AGO TWO YEARS AGO ABOUT TWENTY SIXTEEN THEREABOUTS. AND I ASSURE YOU THAT IT HAS BEEN A WHILE IT'S BEEN OUT FOR A WHILE. DEFINITE WAS NOT IN 2019 OR 2018 SO SHE AROUND THE 2017 TIMEFRAME I ASKED THE QUESTION BECAUSE SEVERAL TIMES THIS EVENING WE'VE HEARD THAT THIS IS A 30 YEAR OLD SYSTEM. YES AND IF THE RFP FOR THE NEW SYSTEM ONLY WENT OUT A COUPLE YEARS AGO. HOW IS IT TAMARA X PROBLEM OR TAMARA X ISSUE THAT NOW WE'RE IN A HURRY TO REPLACE THIS 30 YEAR OLD SYSTEM. WHY DID THE COUNTY NOT PUT OUT THIS RFP 10 YEARS AGO TO GET THIS SYSTEM UPDATED. SO LET ME GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY WHEN IT CAME TO THE SYSTEM ITSELF. REMEMBER THE COUNTY BACK IN 2013. THAT'S WHEN THE CONSOLIDATION OF THE SYSTEM OCCURRED. THAT IS WHEN ALSO AT THAT PARTICULAR TIME THE COUNTY. THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE RADIO SYSTEM AND ALL THE 9 11 SYSTEM ALL THAT STUFF CAME BACK TO THE COUNTY. SO IN THAT TIME FRAME AS PART OF THAT TIME FRAME AS WELL WHAT THE COUNTY DID WAS WENT OUT AND GOT A CONSULTANT MISSION CRITICAL PARTNERS AND WE HAD A CONVERSATION WITH THE CITY

[02:45:05]

REGARDING MISSION CRITICAL PARTNERS I ACTUALLY THINK THAT YOU WE DID A PRESENTATION WITH THEM AND OUR CONSULTANTS ASSOCIATED WITH IT ON THE NEEDS ANALYSIS AN ENTIRE ANALYSIS OF THE SYSTEM THAT WAS DONE THAT DAY TO INCLUDE FEEDBACK FROM OUR FIRST RESPONDERS AS WELL. SO WE HAD TO ASSESS THE SYSTEM TO SEE WHAT THE ACTUAL WAS GOING ON WITH THE SYSTEM. GET FEEDBACK FROM OUR FIRST RESPONDERS COME UP WITH THE NECESSARY PLAN TO REPLACE THE SYSTEM BEFORE WE GO OUT FOR RFP. WE HAD TO DO THAT NEEDS A LOT OF ANALYSIS IN ORDER TO DEVELOP THE RFP TO GO OUT FOR. THAT'S WHERE YOU GET THE 16 SITES FROM. SO OUR CONSULTANT DID ALL THAT PARTICULAR WORK THAT LED UP TO DEVELOPING THE RFP TO GO OUT WHICH WE HAD TO VENDORS THAT AS YOU MAY BE AWARE THAT WENT FOR THIS PARTICULAR CONTRACT WHICH WAS HARRISON MOTOROLA AN OBVIOUS MOTOROLA HAD WANDA THE CONTRACT. AND WE'RE AT THIS PARTICULAR POINT WITH THE SITES THAT WE'VE HAVE IDENTIFY EITHER HAD TO GO THROUGH SOME ENHANCEMENTS WHICH MAJORITY MORE COMPLETE OR WE HAD TO BUILD NEW TOWER SITES SO THAT'S JUST A BRIEF HISTORY ON WHERE WE ARE SO SOON AS THEY CAME BACK TO THE COUNTY. WE MOVE FOR WHAT THAT THESE THAT WE NEEDED TO DO TO GET THIS SYSTEM REPLACED THE PART THAT IS OWNED BY THE COUNTY IN THE CITY OF TAMARA WOODLANDS PARK ONE MONTH WHAT MONTH SORRY. THAT WAS RATHER QUICK MADAM MAYOR THOUGHT IT WOULD MONT. PARK IT IS A NATURE PRESERVE. CORRECT I APOLOGIZE. COMMISSIONER I'M NOT AWARE OF WOODLAND PARK. OKAY. YES. IT IS A NATURE RESERVE OKAY. IT YES IT IS LISTED IN THE NATURE PRESERVE IN THE CHARTER. SO THE LANGUAGE OF THE REGIONAL PARK AND THE NATURE PRESERVE LAND SWAP IS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME. SO THE COUNTY COULD DECIDE THAT WOULD MONT WOULD MONT PARK SHOULD BE OWNED BY ANOTHER CITY AND COULD COME IN AND MAKE A LAND SWAP AND WE WOULD BE IN THE SAME POSITION AS THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD. I DON'T EVEN WANT TO CONSIDER HOW THAT WOULD FEEL AS A COMMISSIONER IN THE CITY OF TAMARACK. I CERTAINLY WOULDN'T WANT TO CONSIDER HOW THAT WOULD FEEL AS THE COMMISSIONER OF A WOULD WANT IT. IT'S AN UNTENABLE SITUATION. AND THE FACT THAT THIS HAS NEVER BEEN DONE BY ANY CITY WITH THE COUNTY TELLS ME THERE'S A REASON WHY IT'S NEVER BEEN DONE. AND I DON'T WANT OUR CITY TO BE A PART OF THIS DEAL. THANK YOU. THANK YOU COMMISSIONER AND BOLTON GOOD EVENING. SO INITIALLY WAS NOT GOING ASKING THE QUESTIONS ALTHOUGH. COMMISSIONER FISHMAN SOUNDS LIKE COMMISSIONER BOLTON TONIGHT WITH ALL THE QUESTIONS. SO I'LL KEEP MY QUESTIONS TO.

JUST A MINIMUM. YOUR ATTORNEY SAID SOMETHING THAT. STUCK OUT TO ME AND I JUST WANT CLARIFICATION. YOU SAID AND CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG THE SWAP HAS TO TAKE PLACE REGARDLESS OF THE CITY OF LA TO HEAL THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD'S POSITION. WAS THAT WHAT YOU SAID. YES THAT'S CORRECT. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE TO DO THAT. IF IF WE SAY NO TONIGHT SO IF THE CITY OF IT IF BASED IF WE CAN'T HAVE A CITY PARTNER TO DO THE SWAP EVEN IF THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD SUPPORTED THIS PROCESS THIS TOWER WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DO THE DEVELOPMENT IN THE PARK. RIGHT. BECAUSE WE NEED A CITY IN ORDER OR YOU KNOW OR WE COULD GO TO A VOTE OF THE ELECTORS OF BROWARD COUNTY. SO EITHER A CITY OR THROUGH A BALLOT INITIATIVE TO EXCLUDE WESTLAKE PARK FROM THE PARK CHARTER PROVISION TO DO THE SWAP. SO AGAIN EVEN IF THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD WAS SO SIMILAR TO YOUR TOWER. SO EVEN IF IT WOULD BE A SITUATION WHERE IF YOU KNOW YOU SUPPORTED YOUR TOWER BUT BECAUSE OF THIS RESTRICTION WE WOULD STILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH SOME KIND OF SWAP AND IT MIGHT INVOLVE THE CITY THAT WERE SET THAT THE TOWER SITS IN. BUT AS I SAID I THINK THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD MAY HAVE SOME OWN ISSUES WITH ITS CHARTER THAT MIGHT NOT ALLOW IT TO BE INVOLVED IN THE SWAP BUT WE'D HAVE TO HAVE ANOTHER CITY INVOLVED SOMEWHERE TO HELP US TO GET THIS DONE OR

[02:50:02]

HAVE IT GO TO A VOTE OF THE PURSUANT TO THE CHARTER PROVISION. SO THEN PERHAPS THE CITY OF PARKLAND WOULD BE WILLING TO SWAP WITH THE CITY OF TIME RICKS LAND IN WHITMONT OR SWAP SOME LAND SOMEWHERE SO THAT THEY ARE A PART OF THE DEAL. COULD THAT COULD THAT WORK. WE COULD HAVE ANOTHER ANOTHER CITY SO IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE TAMARACK OR HOLLYWOOD IT COULD BE ANY OTHER CITY IN BROWARD COUNTY THAT COULD DO IT INCLUDING PARK LINGERING COLD SPRINGS. TELL US ABOUT THE OTHER SITES THAT YOU LOOKED AT IN THIS PROCESS AND WHY THOSE SITES WERE NOT. TO YOUR LIKING AND WHY THIS SITE IS THE REASON WHY YOU KNOW THIS ITEM IS HERE. WHAT COMMISSIONER IS MULTIPLE SITES. I DON'T HAVE A FULL LISTING WITH ME BUT DEFINITELY WE HAVE PROVIDED TO AND WE LOOK BACK OBVIOUSLY WE GO THROUGH A COVERS ANALYSIS. THAT'S THE BASIC STARTING POINT FOR ALL OUR ITEMS. AS I MENTIONED REGARDING THE NEEDS ANALYSIS OR THE NEEDS ANALYSIS STARTS AND SAY OK HERE'S THE COVERAGE THAT WE NEED WE ALREADY KNOW WHERE THE GAPS ARE IN THE SYSTEM THAT TODAY WE KNOW WHERE THE GAPS ARE. SO THE NEEDS ANALYSIS GOES THROUGH THAT AND DETERMINES OK. THIS IS WHERE WE NEED TO GENERALLY HAVE A TOWER SITE LOCATED AT. HERE'S THE GENERAL BASIC POINT WITH CAR COVERAGE BUILDING PENETRATION THOSE PARTICULAR COMPONENTS. SO WHEREVER A TOWER IS LOCATED SIMILAR TO WHAT WE DID WITH TAMARACK WE'LL DO THAT PARTICULAR ANALYSIS TO DETERMINE FROM A BASIC STANDPOINT IS THE COVERAGE MET OR NOT OTHER FACTORS GO WITH THAT. BUT WE START WITH THAT BASIC COMPONENT OF CANNOT HAVE A COVERAGE COMPONENT COMPONENT ASSOCIATED WITH IT. I RECALL LIKE IN TAMARACK THEN WE LOOKED AT OUR PUBLIC WORKS FACILITY AT ONE POINT IN TIME WE LOOKED AT CITY FURNITURE LOCATIONS. SAME SAME THING THAT WE DID WITH THE CITY HALL THE WAY WE LOOKED AT VARIOUS LOCATIONS AND LOCATIONS THAT WERE OFFERED UP BY THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD. OK OK. SO I BELIEVE THAT THE CITY OF TOM REICH HAS DEMONSTRATED ITS WILLINGNESS TO MAKE SURE THAT PUBLIC SAFETY IS AT THE FOREFRONT. WE HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT PUBLIC SAFETY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US AND THAT IS WHY THE TOWER IS GOING UP AND ARE IN OUR BACKYARD. AND. AT THAT TIME I HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE LOCATION NOT PROBLEM WITH PUBLIC SAFETY. AND SO WE YOU KNOW WE LITERALLY FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM BITE THE BULLET AND HAVE THE COUNTY BUILD THE THE TOWER THERE. SO I BELIEVE THAT THIS COMMISSION HAS DEMONSTRATED IT STANDS FOR IT FOR PUBLIC SAFETY AND THAT SHOULD BE COMMENDED. SO REGARDLESS OF HOW OUR VOTE GOES TONIGHT I DON'T BELIEVE THAT WE SHOULD PAINTED WE SHOULD BE PAINTED AGAIN WITH YOU KNOW BEING OBSTRUCTIONISTS TO PUBLIC SAFETY. I THINK THAT WE HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT IN A PREVIOUS VOTE.

WOULD YOU AGREE WE'RE HERE AS PARTNERS WAY WE COUNTY STAFF. BUT WOULD YOU AGREE. YES I AGREE THAT WE ARE AS PART THANK YOU SO MUCH. I'M SORRY COMMISSIONER FISHERMAN IF I COULD JUST ADD MAYOR THAT ROLE MARINE DEAL JUST GOT CLARIFICATION SO IN THAT CASE THE CITY OF DANIA BEACH WHO WAS INVOLVED IN THAT TRANSACTION DID PURCHASE THE WAS SWAPPED WITH PROPERTY THAT WAS LOCATED IN THE CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE. SO IT WAS A ANOTHER CITY OUTSIDE CITY PURCHASING PROPERTY IN ANOTHER CITY TO GET THAT DONE. AGAIN THAT WAS TO CORRECT A SURVEYOR'S MISTAKE THAT WAS NOT SOMETHING THAT HAD TO BE DONE PRIOR TO THE BUILDING BEING DONE. THE BUILDING HAD BEEN DONE AND IT WAS DONE TO CORRECT A MISTAKE. JUST TO ADD TO THAT TRACY CLEARY VICE MAYOR OF CITY HOLLYWOOD AND I APPRECIATE YOU GUYS AGAIN FOR ALLOWING IT BUT DANGER FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE. OUR COASTAL CITIES THEY ARE RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO EACH OTHER. PLEASE TAKE THAT INTO CONSIDERATION AS WELL. YOU ARE WEST WE ARE EAST WHAT HAPPENS IN HOLLYWOOD DOESN'T HAPPEN THE SAME AS WHAT I'M TAMARA WE ARE ALL ONE BROWARD BUT WE ARE ON

[02:55:05]

DIFFERENT SIDES OF THE SPECTRUM. IF YOU WOULD SAY I WOULD LIKE TO IF I COULD. I'VE BEEN WAITING AND I WOULD LIKE TO JUST ADD SOME COMMENTS TO A LOT OF THE THINGS I SAID AND I MUST SPEAK FROM THE HEART BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I DO BEST. BUT THERE IS SOME CLARIFICATION EXCUSE ME AS I PULL IT UP BECAUSE I WAS TAKING NOTES AS YOU GUYS WERE TALKING AND I REALLY HAVE TO SAY THAT I'M VERY DISHEARTENED TODAY BY THE ACTIONS OF THE PARTIES INVOLVED. NOW WHY DO I SAY THAT I MEAN GET MY NUTS SO FIRST I'M GONNA SPEAK FROM MY NOTES AND THEN MUST PICK FROM MY HEART. SO CLARIFICATION BY SAMIR AS WAS STATED BY COMMISSIONER SHOW HIM. WE HAVE ONE TOWER IN OUR CITY.

WE HAVE TWO THAT ARE RECOMMENDED. ONE WAS TO BE PLACED IN WEST HOLLYWOOD. WE TRIED AS YOU TO DO WHAT WAS BEST AND NOT IN OUR BACKYARD AND EVERYTHING WE REALIZED AND WE UNDERSTAND THE NEED TO HAVE A SAFE BROWARD COUNTY AND WE MOVE FORWARD WITH THAT BECAUSE WE DID NOT HAVE A DIFFERENT SOLUTION. IN WESTLAKE PARK AS WAS STATED BY COMMISSIONERS TO HIM AS WELL WHEN THIS WAS ALL DECIDED TO PLACE THE TOWER IN WESTLAKE PARK AND DISCUSSED WITH THE COUNTY THE CIRQUE WAS NOT AN OPTION AT THAT TIME BECAUSE IT WAS NOT THERE. IT'S THERE. IT IS A BETTER SITE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE THIRD PARTY RECOMMENDATION IT IS EQUAL TO WESTLAKE PARK WHERE WE HAVE A PROBLEM IS WE HAVE TWO DIFFERENCES OF OPINIONS EVEN THOUGH THE THIRD PARTY CAME IN AND SAID THIS IS WHERE WE THINK IT SHOULD GO. IF YOU READ THAT REPORT YOU WILL FIND THAT THERE ARE ERRORS AND THAT THE BEST LOCATION FOR ALL OF BROWARD COUNTY IS AT THIS ARK. I CAN'T EVEN TELL YOU HOW MUCH I BELIEVE THAT FROM MY INNER SOUL. LET ME CONTINUE TO CONSIDER THAT THE COUNTY IN MY OPINION WILL BE LOOKING TO DO A CHARTER AMENDMENT TO GET BACK THIS PROPERTY LESS THAN FIVE YEARS. SO THE DEAL THAT YOU MIGHT BE MAKING MAY BE THE WRONG DEAL GIVE THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND THE COUNTY A CHANCE TO PARTNER AND MAKE THIS GREAT FOR ASKING UNTIL MONDAY. POSTPONE THIS DECISION UNTIL MONDAY AND EVEN SWAP LAND. AS WAS STATED EARLIER IT'S NOT AN EVEN SWAP PLAN. YOU'RE MISSING AND I DON'T KNOW IF MANY OF YOU KNOW BUT OBVIOUSLY WE HAVE DEALT WITHIN THE CITY HOLLYWOOD. WE'VE HEARD THINGS I'VE LEARNED THINGS EVERY DAY YOU LEARN SOMETHING NEW. IT'S AN UPLAND IT'S NOT COMPARABLE PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD WANTS THE BEST NOT ONLY FOR OUR RESIDENTS BUT FOR ALL OF BROWARD COUNTY THE LACK OF TRANSPARENCY THE LACK OF ETHICS AND THE LACK OF PARTNERSHIP IS VERY THIS HEARTENING TO ME. I DO THIS AS A PUBLIC SERVANT. SO AGAIN I WILL SAY THIS FROM MY HEART. I HAVE A HUSBAND WHO IS A FIRST RESPONDER.

HE IS A POLICE OFFICER IN THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND FOR THE PAST SEVEN YEARS AS A COMMISSIONER FOR THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD THE CONCERN OF THE NINE ON ONE SYSTEM AND THE TOWER MSD AND ALL THE TRAGEDIES THAT WE FACE IN THE CITY. HOLLYWOOD AND WE FACE IN OUR NATION HIS CONCERN WHEN HE GOES TO WORK EVERY DAY. I HAVE TO BE CONCERNED IF HE COMES HOME BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF INSUFFICIENCY THAT THE COUNTY HAS PROVIDED. BUT HE DOES HIS JOB. I HAVE FAITH AND I BELIEVE THAT WE ARE HERE TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT. AND I UNDERSTAND THIS IS A COMMITMENT ON YOUR PART. YOU HAVE TO ALSO UNDERSTAND WE WOULD NOT BE WASTING OUR TIME. WE WOULD NOT BE COMING TO TAMARACK.

WE WOULD NOT BE FIGHTING WITH SOMEONE WHO IS SUPPOSED TO BE OUR PARTNER TO GET SOMETHING TO BENEFIT EVERYBODY. IF WE DID NOT FEEL AND KNOW THAT THIS IS THE RIGHT

[03:00:05]

DECISION. I KNOW IT'S HARD. IT'S HARD FOR US TO. BUT I AM ASKING YOU TO PLEASE DON'T MAKE A DECISION TODAY. LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE WHO CAME OUT HERE LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE WHO ARE LIVING IT EVERY DAY WHICH IS US. WE'RE JUST TRYING TO FIND THAT RIGHT SOLUTION AND THAT RIGHT SOLUTION IS CIRQUE I PROBABLY CAN'T CHANGE ANY OF YOUR MINDS BUT I AM ASKING YOU TO BE PATIENT. WHAT IS ONE MORE WEEK AND A MATTER BUT THIS WILL BE ABLE TO HELP US GET BETTER DIRECTION AND HAVE A BETTER OUTCOME FOR ALL OF US INCLUDING TAMARACK. YOU WOULD NOT WANT THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD TO COME INTO YOUR BACKDOOR AND BUY A PIECE OF PROPERTY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO MAKE A CHANGE FOR THE BETTERMENT OF SOMETHING WITHOUT KNOWING ALL THE FACTS. AND I THINK THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF FACTS THAT ARE MISSING AND THAT THEY WILL COME OUT. THAT IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY TODAY. THANK YOU. I WILL BE LEAVING. I HOPE YOUR DECISION IS IN FAVORITE TO HOLD OFF UNTIL WE CAN COME TO A RESOLUTION AND A PARTNERSHIP WITH THE COUNTY WHICH WE ARE DILIGENTLY TRYING THE BEST TO DO. AND JUST ONE MORE NOTE. WE WERE ADVISED PROBABLY NOT TO COME HERE TODAY OR WE WERE TOLD THAT NO ONE FROM THE COUNTY WOULD BE HERE TODAY. NO COMMISSIONERS. MY GUT AND I BELIEVE COMMISSIONER SHOULD HAVE SOME GUT SAID WE NEED TO COME. AND I HAVE TO SAY I AM SO HAPPY I CAME BECAUSE I WAS SURPRISED TO SEE THAT THERE WERE OTHER INDIVIDUALS FROM THE COUNTY HERE THAT WE WERE NOT AWARE OF AS WE WERE TOLD NOT TO COME. SOMETIMES YOU GOT TO STAND UP AND DO WHAT'S RIGHT FROM YOUR GUT AND MAKE THAT RIGHT DECISION AND FIGHT FOR WHAT YOU WANT AND FIGHT FOR THE BETTERMENT OF ALL BROWARD COUNTY. THANK YOU WE APPRECIATE YOUR HUSBAND YOURSELF AS WELL. AND YOU ARE INVITED TO THE CITY OF TAMARACK ANYTIME YOU WANT TO CALL. THAT'S VERY NICE TO TELL YOU JUST WAIT ONE MINUTE. SO I NOW HAVE THE VICE MAYOR AND THEN COMMISSIONER BOLTON. I JUST WANTED TO TO SAY TO THE VICE MAYOR AND THE COMMISSIONER IN NO WAY PLEASE. WAS I EVER EVER TRYING TO SAY THAT YOU WILL DON'T CARE ABOUT THE SAFETY OF YOUR COMMUNITY.

SO I TOLD YOU I LIVE THERE. I KNOW A LOT ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. I'VE KNOWN ONE OF YOUR COMMISSIONERS FOR PROBABLY 20 YEARS. SO IN NO WAY WAS I TRYING TO IMPLY THAT WHATSOEVER. PLEASE. IF IF I OFFENDED YOU I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT. THAT WAS NOT MY INTENTION. SO THANK YOU FOR SAYING SO. I COULD SAY THAT I HAVE. A COUPLE. QUESTIONS OVER HERE. WHAT WOULD BE A REASON FOR SWAPPING LAND I SEE THE NOW THE TOWER.

WHAT ELSE WOULD BE A REASON THAT THE COUNTY WOULD SWAP LAND SPECIFICALLY FOR THE PARK CHARTER PURPOSE OR FOR. I'M ASKING WHAT WOULD BE A REASON. SO THE COUNTY AND THE CITIES IN YOUR IN YOUR ORDINANCES RIGHT. SO WERE REGULAR PROPERTY OWNERS AND JUST LIKE IF SOMEBODY OWNED PROPERTY WE HAVE THE ABILITY OR TO SWAP LAND AND STATUTORILY WE'RE ALLOWED TO EXCHANGE PROPERTY WITH THE CITY OR ANOTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCY PROVIDED THAT WE PROVIDE NOTICE OF IT. SO USUALLY IT'S I MEAN JUST LIKE THE CITY WE HAVE TO HAVE SOME PUBLIC PURPOSE FOR US FOR FOR DOING IT. I THINK ONE OF THE WE PROVIDED A LIST OF OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES IN WHICH WE HAVE EXCHANGED PROPERTY FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS AND THE REASON AND THE REASONS STATED USUALLY A LOT OF ROADWAY TRANSFERS PROJECTS THAT WE'RE WORKING ON WHERE WE NEED TO EVEN SOMETHING OUT OR THERE'S THERE IS A BENEFIT TO BOTH PARTIES. SO THE REASONS CAN BE MYRIAD. AS YOU CAN SEE THOUGH I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THE CHARTER CHARTER PROVISION IS THAT WE ARE THAT COUNTY GENERALLY DOES NOT USE THE PROVISION UNLESS IT IS IN A CIRCUMSTANCE WHERE IT REALLY NEEDS TO SO IN THE RALEIGH MARINE SITUATION WHERE THEY HAD BUILT AN ENTIRE BUILDING ACCIDENTALLY ON COUNTY PROPERTY ON THE PARK PROPERTY AND THE DETRIMENT OF REMOVING IT WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY SEVERE. THE COUNTY DID AGREE TO ENGAGE IN THAT TYPE OF SWAP AND THE ENTITY THAT HAD DONE IT SPENT A LOT OF MONEY TO GET US SOME ADDITIONAL PROPERTY FOR A REGIONAL PARK. AND HERE YOU KNOW AS MR. DE AS ALFONZO SAID WE HAVE GONE THROUGH. WE LOOKED AT A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT SITES AND WE JUST HAVEN'T FOUND A SITE THAT IS APPROPRIATE. THAT GIVES US THE COVERAGE THAT WE WOULD WANT AND IN THE INDEPENDENT

[03:05:01]

EXPERT ANALYSIS. THAT'S WHY THE COUNTY WAS WILLING TO GO TO THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT ANALYSIS. WE WERE WILLING TO TAKE THE DECISION THAT WAS MADE BY THE EXPERT ABOUT WHICH SITE WAS BETTER. WE DON'T HAVE A PARTICULAR PREFERENCE FOR WESTLAKE PARK OR THE SAUK SITE EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT THIS WAS A PARK SITE IS A BETTER SITE FOR OUR REGIONAL MY MOM WANTS US. THAT'S REALLY WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO FURTHER FROM THE COUNTY'S POSITION AND WHY WE'RE PURSUING THIS OPTION. WE HAVEN'T FOUND A SITE THAT GETS US IN THE LOCATION AND GIVES THAT LEVEL OF COVERAGE THAT WE'D GET FROM THE WESTLAKE PARK SITE AND WE'VE TRIED TO FIND AND LOOK AT OTHER SITES THAT MIGHT WORK AS WELL. WAS THE SEARCH SITE CONSIDERED IN YOUR FINAL ANALYSIS WITH THE INDEPENDENT PEOPLE COMING IN. YEAH. SO THE SEARCH SITE WAS WAS EXPRESSLY COMPARED TO THE WESTLAKE PARK SITE BY AN INDEPENDENT EXPERT FOR THE ABILITY TO COMPLY WITH THE P 25 SYSTEM BUT ALSO THE DIFFICULTY OF ADMINISTERING THE SYSTEM OVER THE LIFETIME OF THE PROJECT AND ACTUALLY DEVELOPING IT FROM AN INITIAL STANDPOINT. AM I CORRECT.

I THINK I'VE HEARD OUR MAYOR SAY IT AND I THINK I READ IN THE PAPER THAT BOTH SIDES AGREED WHATEVER THE INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS CAME BACK WITH BOTH SIDES WOULD AGREE. THAT'S CORRECT. PURSUANT TO THE TERMS OF THE INTER LOCAL AND THAT'S HOW WE RESOLVED OUR OUR 164 PROCESS. OK I WOULD CERTAINLY LIKE TO SEE THE COUNTY CONTINUED TO WORK WITH THE CITY TO SEE IF THERE'S A WAY SO THAT THERE ARE NO HARD FEELINGS BETWEEN THE COUNTY AND THE CITY. AND WE WILL BE MOST HAPPY TO RELEASE OURSELF FROM THIS HAMLET AND WE'LL WORK IT OUT WITH HOLLYWOOD. I DON'T LIKE THAT. WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO WORK WITH THEM. SO EVEN IF WE DO THE SWAP WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO WORK WITH THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD. SO AS I SAID THE SWAP ISSUE IS A LITTLE BIT SEPARATE FROM THE SITE PLAN AND THE ACTUAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE SITE. SO EVEN IF WE ARE WE GET THE SWAP DONE RIGHT THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD IS STILL THE CITY THAT CONTROLS THE ZONING AND PIPELINE APPROVAL. SO. THE COUNTY HAS THE PERSON DEVELOPING THE PROPERTY. WE'LL STILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH ALL THE CITY'S PERMITTING AND AND TO THE EXTENT THAT THE CITY WITHDRAWS OR SEEKS TO WITHDRAW THE SITE PLAN APPROVAL. THE COUNTY WILL STILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT PROCESS WITH THE CITY SO MOVING FORWARD WITH INTERIM LOCAL AGREEMENT TODAY FOR THE SWAP WHICH FALLS ART PARK CHARTER PROBLEM DOES NOT AFFECT REALLY IN ANY WAY THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD'S OBJECTION TO THE SITE. SO THE SITE PLAN YOU KNOW NO CITY LIKES TO GET IN ANOTHER CITY'S BUSINESS THAT GOES WITHOUT WITHOUT SAYING THAT WE WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO REMOVE OURSELVES. I'D JUST LIKE TO SAY AS FAR AS THE NATURE OF PRESERVE THAT THAT SITE WAS CONSIDERED FOR THEIR TOWER AND TAMARACK AND IT WAS DEEMED NOT APPROPRIATE. THIS SITE WAS WAS MORE APPROPRIATE AS YOU SAID WE TALKED ABOUT CITY FURNITURE. SO THAT'S A NATURE PRESERVE. WHAT COULD THAT LAND BE USED FOR OTHER THAN THAT. I DON'T THINK I CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION I WOULDN'T REALLY HAVE TO LOOK AT THAT PARTICULAR SITE ITSELF. I THINK THAT THE USE THAT IT IS RIGHT NOW IS WHAT THEY INTEND TO USE FOR IT IS. SO I WILL HAVE TO REALLY LOOK AT THAT PARTICULAR SITE TO DETERMINE OR MAKE ANY INTERPRETATION OF THAT PARTICULAR. OK BECAUSE IF IT WAS NOT DEEMED APPROPRIATE AT THE TIME FOR THE TOWER. ABSOLUTELY. THAT'S ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. OK. SO VICE MAYOR IF I COULD JUST INTERJECT ON THE WARDMAN PARK SITE IT WAS LOOKED AT FOR A TOWER IT WAS DEEMED NOT APPROPRIATE FOR A TOWER BECAUSE IT IS RESTRICTED TO A NATURE PRESERVE. IT IS RESTRICTED BY THE COUNTY I BELIEVE BY DEED TO A NATURE PRESERVE. SO WHETHER THE COUNTY OWNS IT OR WE OWN IT OR ANYONE OWNS IT IT IS GONNA BE A NATURE PRESERVE UNTIL THAT DEED RESTRICTION IS REMOVED. OK. WE'VE WE'VE LOOKED WE'VE ASKED THE COUNTY ABOUT OTHER USES FOR THAT PARK TO MAKE IT MORE OK SAY PRODUCTIVE IN THE PAST AND WERE ADVISED THAT IT IS DEEMED RESTRICTED TO A NATURE PRESERVE. SO THERE ARE NO. THAT IS WHY THERE ARE NO OTHER PARK ELEMENTS THAT EXIST IN THAT PARK OTHER THAN THE TRAIL THROUGH THE THROUGH THE PRESERVE. AND I WANTED THAT TO BE LOUD AND CLEAR AND ON THE RECORD. SO MY WOULD NOT RESIDENTS DON'T GO CRAZY. SO THANK YOU FOR CLEARING THAT UP. YOU KNOW IT'S NOT MUCH FUN SITTING IN THIS POSITION GETTING GETTING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTY AND ONE OF OUR OTHER CITIES. IT REALLY IS NOT. BUT I FIRMLY BELIEVE IN SAFETY ISSUES AS EVERY CITY DOES. SO I WOULD I WOULD TEND TO WANT TO MOVE IT FORWARD WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT YOU

[03:10:06]

WILL CONTINUE TO WORK WITH THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND HOWEVER YOU CAN WORK THAT OUT WE WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO BACK AWAY FROM IT AND LET YOU DEAL WITH THEM DIRECTLY. THANK YOU. THANK YOU COMMISSIONER BOLTON. OKAY. ALFONZO WOULD YOU WOULD YOU BE AMENABLE TO PULL YOUR ITEM OR. RISK THAT AT THAT A MOTION IS MADE TO TABLE IT FOR TWO WEEKS OR 30 DAYS SO THAT YOU CAN GO BACK TO THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD AND THEN COME BACK TO US. OR WOULD YOU PREFER TO RISK THAT YOU GET A YES OR NO COMMISSIONER FROM OUR FUNDS THOSE OPINION AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE ASKING IS THAT YOU KNOW WE'VE WE'RE EVERY DAY IS SUDDENLY ONLY FOR THIS SYSTEM. AND IT CONTINUES TO BE A DELAY. IT CONTINUES TO BE MR. FER ALFONZO IS PAYING IS THAT WE WILL LIKE TO PARTNER WITH THE CITY AT TAMARACK INTO MOVE FOR TONIGHT. IF THAT'S POSSIBLE WITH THE CITY OF TAMARACK WE WERE BEHIND SCHEDULE I JUST PUT IT THAT SIMPLE THAT WE'RE BEHIND SCHEDULE WE SHOULD BE OPERATING DECEMBER 2019 WILL NOT MEET THAT DATE SO AS OUR FUNDS THOSE ARE PAYING THAT WE'D LIKE TO MOVE FORWARD TONIGHT. TO SEE IF WE CAN PARTNER WITH THE CITY OF TAMARACK OKAY. I THINK OF BOTH ROUNDS ASKED MY QUESTIONS IN LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES SO IT'S VERY YOU KNOW.

CORDIAL TO THE PEOPLE WHO ARE WAITING TO TALK ABOUT OTHER THINGS. SO I'M NOT RUNNING THE MEETING FOR THE FOR THE MAYOR. I'D LIKE TO JUST SEE THAT DISCUSSIONS ARE CLOSED NOW AND. A QUESTION IS CALLED UNLESS COMMISSIONER GALAN IF YOU'RE THERE AND YOU WANT TO MAKE A MOTION THROUGH THE CHAIR I WOULD APPRECIATE THAT. NO THERE IS NO THANK YOU. HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME. THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER BOLTON. YEAH. I JUST WANT TO REITERATE THAT WE AS COMMISSIONERS SHOULD GIVE DEFERENCE TO OUR FELLOW COMMISSIONERS IN HOLLYWOOD WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT WE WOULD NOT WANT SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO HAPPEN IN OUR CITY. ONE RESIDENT ASKED THAT WE DELAY THIS UNTIL THE NEXT COMMISSION MEETING. LIKE MAYOR OF HOLLYWOOD AND THAT WAS THE LATEST FROM MONDAY I THINK WE SAID I'LL MAKE A MOTION TO TABLE THIS ITEM FOR 30 DAYS TO ALLOW THE COMMISSIONER COMMISSIONERS IN HOLLYWOOD AND THE COUNTY TO COME UP WITH A DEAL. THAT WAY WE WILL FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE IN BEING ABOUT THIRD PARTY AS WELL. OR AT COMMISSIONER BOLTON THAT LET PARKLAND BE THE PARTY TO DO THE DEAL. SO THAT NOTHING IN MY MOTION MOTION TO TABLE THAT ITEM BUT REALLY AND THAT WILL MAKE IT THE FIRST ITEM BY COMMISSION MEETING AFTER THAT VERY LATE TIME PERIOD. MADAM MAYOR IF I CAN FOR THE RECORD TO THE EXTENT THAT THERE'S A SECOND ON THE MOTION TO TABLE TWO A TIME CERTAIN FOR 30 DAYS IT TAKES PRECEDENCE OVER THE CAR MOTION ON THE TABLE WHICH IS THE RESOLUTION TO APPROVE.

AND ARE THERE ARE FRIENDLY THAT AWB TO MOTION TO THE TABLE. EXCUSE ME ARE FRIENDLY AMENDMENTS ALLOW A MOTION TO TABLE SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. THERE ARE NO AMENDMENTS. IT IS WHAT IT IS. IF YOU GET A SECOND YOU STOP TALKING ABOUT IT AND YOU VOTE ON IT. SECOND QUESTION YOU ASKED ME A QUESTION THAT IS SAID HE WANTED A MOTION TO TABLE IT FOR 30 DAYS. IT WAS SECONDED. THAT'S CORRECT THERE'S NO DEBATE. SO NOW I NEED TO CALL A VOTE ON GET THE CALL QUESTION MADAM CLERK COMMISSIONER GALEN COMMISSIONER BOLTON YES. VICE MAYOR FLACCO. YES COMMISSIONER FISHMAN. YES MAYOR GOMEZ NO. MOTION PASSED. THIS ITEM IS A TEMPORARY RESOLUTION 1 3 3 3 1 TABLED FOR 30 DAYS. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THAT ITEM IS NOW. COMPLETE COUNTING. LADIES AND

[5. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION]

OUR PUBLIC PARTICIPATION IS NOW OPEN AND I WILL CALL MS. JILL LEWIS. NAME AND I JUST PLEASE FOR THE RECORD AND I'M GOING TO REMIND EVERYBODY WHILE THERE WAS A SLIGHT EXCEPTION FOR THE LAST ROUND WE DID NOT CLAP. WE DO NOT BOO. WE DO NOT CHEER. IF YOU TRULY WANT TO WISH TO EXPRESS YOURSELF LET'S DO WHAT THEY DO IN THE COUNTY AND WE COULD DO THE SNAPS AND WE COULD BE ASKED IF WE'RE AT A POETRY READING OR SOMETHING IS THAT TO KEEP IT. A LITTLE BIT ON A QUIETER LEVEL SO. MISS LEWIS PLEASE. MADAM MAYOR IF IT PLEASES YOU BEFORE MISS LEWIS GOES FORWARD I'D LIKE THE RECORD TO CLARIFY THAT WE DID VOTE ON THE CONSENT AGENDA TO MOVE FORWARD WITHOUT HEARING THE INTO LOCAL AGREEMENT PIECE. OR ARE WE TAKING. A PUBLIC PART OF THIS VISION FIRST AND THEN HEAR THE CONSENT AGENDA OF HIS WORDS. GOOD POINT. LET ME. WHEN I WAS PUTTING US BACK IN ORDER I MOVED THE ONE ITEM OFF THE CONSENT AGENDA AND I MOVED IT BEFORE PUBLIC HEARING. AND THEN WE'RE BACK TO PUBLIC HEARING AND WE WILL THEN GO TO CONFIRM PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PUBLIC PARTICIPATION AND THEN I WILL MOVE US BACK TO THE CONSENT AGENDA IN THE REGULAR ORDER OF BUSINESS WHICH BY THE WAY FOR AS A MATTER OF LAW STAYS INTACT EXCEPT FOR THE ITEM WHICH WAS REMOVED FOR DISCUSSION AND WAS ACTED UPON WHICH IS ITEM. YES. CORRECT. AND IF THE CONSENT AGENDA HAS NO CHANGES OR DELETIONS WE WILL DO ALL THAT. THANKS MA'AM. GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS JILL LEWIS. I AM PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS FOR TUSCAN VILLAS CONDOMINIUMS TWENTY EIGHT FIFTY ONE WEST PROSPECT ROAD UNIT 13 10 IN SEPTEMBER 2010 TAMARACK ANNEX PROSPECT ROAD WHICH INCLUDED TUSCAN VILLAS CONDOMINIUMS. THE LANGUAGE IN THE ANNEXATION BUILD INCLUDED THESE WORDS. MOREOVER THE ANNEXATION OF THESE PARCELS INTO THE CITY WILL PROVIDE ECONOMIC BENEFITS NOT OTHERWISE AVAILABLE TO THE CITY INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION INCREASE AD VALOREM TAX REVENUE PAID DIRECTLY BY THE ANNEXED PARCELS WHICH WILL FUND AND ENHANCE OTHER CITY SERVICES PROVIDED CITYWIDE WHICH IF NOT FOR THE ENHANCE REVENUES RECEIVED FROM THE ANNEX PARCELS WOULD HAVE TO BE FUNDED THROUGH EXISTING REVENUES. IT WAS PRESUMED WHEN THE BILL PASSED THAT ANNEX PARTIES WOULD ALSO RECEIVE BENEFITS BUT APPARENTLY NOT. WHEN IT COMES TO WATER AND SEWER TAMARA ACTS ATTITUDE HAS BEEN TUSCAN VILLAS IS FORT LAUDERDALE AS WATER CUSTOMERS. THEY ARE NOT OUR PROBLEM. FORT LAUDERDALE CLASSIFIES TUSCAN VILLAS. AS OUT OF CITY RESIDENTS SO THEY ADD A 25 PERCENT SURCHARGE ON TOP OF OUR WATER RATES WHICH MEANS THAT TUSCAN VILLAS IS PAYING 100 PERCENT HIGHER WATER RATES THAN ANY OTHER TAMARACK RESIDENT TAMARACK IS SUBSIDIZING ONE THOUSAND RESIDENTS WHO ARE IN THE EXACT SAME WATER POSITION AS TUSCAN VILLAS. BUT I'M BEING TOLD THAT TAMARACK WILL NOT PROVIDE RELIEF TO TUSCAN VILLAS UNTIL 2021 AND THAT'S A MAYBE. WE WERE ANNEXED IN 2010 AND NOW WE'RE BEING EXPECTED TO WAIT ELEVEN YEARS BEFORE YOU TWEET US AS RESIDENTS I ESTIMATE WE HAVE SPENT FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS EXTRA IN WATER AND SEWER COSTS BECAUSE TAMARACK IS NOT TREATING TUSCAN VILLAS AS OTHER RESIDENTS. NOT NOT ASKING FOR SPECIAL TREATMENT. I'M ASKING FOR YOU TO TREAT US AS EVERYBODY ELSE IF WE HAVE TO FIGHT TAMARACK. WE'RE GOING TO FIGHT FORT LAUDERDALE TWENTY FIVE PERCENT SURCHARGE DEMANDS THAT WE FIGHT TUSCAN VILLAS IS NOT GOING TO SIT STILL TILL 2021. WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE A BACKSEAT WHILE OTHER RESIDENTS REAP ADDITIONAL WATER AND SEWER

[03:20:03]

BENEFITS THAT TUSCAN VILLAS IS PAYING FOR. IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. CITY MANAGER. DO YOU WANT TO ADDRESS THIS ITEM. I KNOW THAT WE HAVE A COUPLE OF OTHER RESIDENTS THAT WANT TO SPEAK ON THE MATTER. SURE. MADAM MAYOR AS I THINK THE COMMISSION IS AWARE THERE ARE ACTUALLY THREE. THREE WATER SERVICE AREAS IN THE CITY OF TAMARA. THERE IS THE THE CITY OF TAMARA EX WATER SERVICE AREA WHICH WHICH INCLUDES AS WE DISCUSSED EARLIER TONIGHT THROUGH THE FREE CHLORINATION ANNOUNCEMENT THE AREAS WEST OF 441 THOSE ARE ON THE TAMARACK WATER SYSTEM. THERE ARE AREAS EAST OF 441 THAT ARE ALSO ON THE TAMARA I WATER SYSTEM BUT WHO RECEIVE WATER THROUGH THE CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE IS WATER INTERCONNECT WITH THE CITY OF TAMARA THAT WE PURCHASED FROM THE CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE TO SUPPLY THOSE AREAS AND AS YOU KNOW WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH YOU TO DEVELOP A PLAN IN ORDER TO ELIMINATE THE INTERCONNECT WITH FORT LAUDERDALE AND TO PROVIDE THOSE CUSTOMERS THAT ARE ON OUR SYSTEM BUT GET FORT LAUDERDALE WATER WITH WATER PRODUCED THROUGH OUR OWN WATER TREATMENT PLANT. THE SECOND AND MUCH SMALLER AREA IS AND IS THE FORT LAUDERDALE WATER SERVICE AREA WHERE THERE ARE SEVERAL SEVERAL I MEAN I THINK TWO COMMUNITIES AN INDUSTRIAL AREA TUSCAN VILLAS IS ONE OF THOSE COMMUNITIES THAT ARE OUTSIDE OF THE CITY OF TAMARA EX WATER SERVICE AREA. THEY ARE ACTUALLY ON THE CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE IS WATER SYSTEM. THEY ARE FORT LAUDERDALE WATER CUSTOMERS.

THEY RECEIVE THEIR WATER FROM FORT LAUDERDALE THEIR SEWAGE GOES TO FORT LAUDERDALE AND THEY RECEIVE A BILL FROM THE CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE. THERE IS ALSO A THIRD WATER SERVICE AREA AND I'M NOT RECOLLECTING EXACTLY WHERE IT IS BUT IT IS A PORTION OF THE CITY A VERY SMALL PORTION THAT IS ON THE BROWARD COUNTY SYSTEM.

KEEPING IN MIND THAT THESE WATER SERVICE AREAS WERE ESTABLISHED LONG BEFORE CERTAIN PARTS OF THE CITY WERE DEVELOPED AND AS SUCH WHEN THE CITY WAS DEVELOPED CERTAIN PARTS OF THE CITY WERE IN OTHER PEOPLE'S WATER SERVICE AREAS AND THE BOUNDARIES TYPICALLY FOR THOSE WATER SERVICE AREAS DON'T DON'T CHANGE. IF WE IF WE HAVE AN AREA THAT WANTS TO BE CONSIDERED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE AS WATER SERVICE AREA FOR INSTANCE AND MOVED INTO OURS I BELIEVE THE PROCESS WOULD BE THAT THEY WOULD FIRST HAVE TO PETITION THE CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE TO EXIT THE CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE AS WATER SYSTEM. UNDERSTANDING THAT THE CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE IS WATER SYSTEM WATER RATES AND THINGS LIKE THAT ARE ALL BASED ON THE NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS THAT THEY HAVE WHEN THEY ISSUE BONDED INDEBTEDNESS TO IMPROVE THE SYSTEM LIKE WE DO. THEY PLEDGE THOSE WATER CUSTOMERS AND THAT REVENUE AND SO TYPICALLY WATER SERVICE AREAS ARE NOT WILLING TO GIVE UP THEIR CUSTOMERS TO ANOTHER WATER SERVICE AREA. THE WATER SERVICE AREAS DON'T NECESSARILY RESPECT CITY LIMIT LINES. THEY THEY RESPECT THEIR OWN BOUNDARIES AND THE PURVEYORS AND SUPPLIERS OF THE WATER AND WASTEWATER SERVICES THAT THAT THEY'RE IN. A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THAT WOULD WOULD BE OUR NEIGHBOR TO THE NORTH CORAL SPRINGS. I THINK THAT THERE ARE FOUR WATER AND WASTEWATER PROVIDERS WITHIN THE CITY OF CORAL SPRINGS. THERE'S THE NORTH SPRINGS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT I BELIEVE THERE'S THE CORAL SPRINGS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT. THERE'S THE CITY OF CORAL SPRINGS MUNICIPAL WATER SUPPLY AND THEN I BELIEVE THERE'S ONE MORE. AS YOU MOVE FURTHER EAST IN CORAL SPRINGS AND SO THE CITY OF CORAL SPRINGS ONLY SUPPLIES WATER AND WASTEWATER TO A LIMITED NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS WITHIN THEIR CITY. THE OTHER THE OTHER CUSTOMERS IN THOSE CITIES RECEIVE WATER AND WASTEWATER SERVICES AND STORMWATER SERVICES IN SOME CASES FROM THE THE OTHER WATER AND WASTEWATER SUPPLIERS. SO I BELIEVE WHAT THE WOMAN DESCRIBED IS IS TRUE AND ACCURATE AND IT EXISTS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRETY OF BROWARD COUNTY. AND SO IT REALLY ISN'T UP TO THE CITY IF YOU ARE ON OUR WATER SYSTEM OR ANOTHER WATER SYSTEM. IT DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU LIVE AND WHAT WHAT WATER SERVICE SUPPLIER HAS THE RIGHTS TO THAT AREA. IN THE CASE OF TUSCAN VILLAS THAT WAS ESTABLISHED BEFORE TUSCAN VILLAS WAS ANNEXED INTO THE CITY OF TAMARACK THEY WERE A PART OF THE CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE IS WATER SYSTEM WHEN THEY WERE ANNEXED IN

[03:25:02]

AND THEY REMAIN SO TODAY THANK YOU VERY MUCH. MS JOANNE AMIEL GOOD EVENING I'M JOHN EMILE. VICE PRESIDENT TUSCAN VILLAS BOARD OF DIRECTORS 28 FIFTY ONE WEST PROSPECT ROAD UNIT 6 0 1. AS I STAND HERE AS AN ADVOCATE FOR MY COMMUNITY I HOPE THAT AT THE END OF THESE TWO MINUTES YOU WILL CHOOSE TO ADVOCATE FOR US AS WELL YOUR CITIZENS THE CITY OF TAMARACK ACQUIRED TUSCAN VILLAS IN 2010 CHOPPED 2010 DASH TO FIVE SIX OF THE COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR HOUSE BILL NUMBER 11 TWENTY NINE CLEARLY SPOTLIGHTS THE ACQUISITION OF TUSCAN VILLAS PROVIDES A DIRECT ECONOMIC BENEFIT TO THE CITY OF TAMARACK AND PROVIDES FUNDING FOR CITY PROJECTS THE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WHO CALL TUSCAN VILLAS HOMES DID NOT REQUEST TO BECOME A PART OF TAMARACK IN 2010 YOU SOUGHT OUT OUR COMMUNITY FOR YOUR OWN ECONOMIC BENEFIT NEARLY A DECADE LATER WE'RE STILL WAITING TO TRULY BE A PART OF THE CITY OUR FEELING OF DISCONNECT WITH TAMARACK ONLY DEEPENS AS WE'RE HIT EVERY MONTH WITH A WHOPPING WATER AND SEWAGE BILL THOSE OF WHICH OTHER FELLOW RESIDENTS OF TARMAC DO NOT HAVE TO PAY EITHER BECAUSE THEY'RE DIRECTLY HOOKED UP TO THE CITY'S WATER OR YOU HAVE BROUGHT THEM INTO YOUR BULK WATER PURCHASING AGREEMENT. YOU KNOW THAT OUR WATER AND SEWAGE BILL IS 50 TO 100 PERCENT MORE THAN 10 MAX RATES. YOU KNOW THE CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE TAX ON A 25 PERCENT SURCHARGE TO THOSE ALREADY LOFTY RATES. SO IMAGINE TAMARACK WON'T GIVE TAMPAX RATES DESPITE THE FACT THAT TAMARACK RESIDENTS AND IN SOME TWISTED IRONY BECAUSE WE'RE STILL CONNECTED TO FORT LAUDERDALE WATER BUT ARE NOT IN FACT FORT LAUDERDALE RESIDENTS WERE HIT WITH A TWENTY FIVE PERCENT SURCHARGE.

SO HERE WE ARE SUPPORTING THE ECONOMIC INFRASTRUCTURE OF TWO CITIES WHO ARE IN TURN NOT SUPPORTING US. IT'S TROUBLESOME THAT THERE'S A ONE POINT SEVEN MILLION DOLLAR BUDGET IMPROVEMENT PLAN FOR OUR NEIGHBORING PARK. WHILE WE'RE HERE PLEADING WITH THE CITY ABOUT OUR UNFAIR WATER RATES THAT ARE DROWNING US THERE. I MISS MY HUSBAND I SPOKE WITH YOU DOING PAUL IGNATIUS SHIFT COMMISSIONING YOU GAVE US HUGS AND YOU ASSURED US THIS WOULD GET TAKEN CARE OF. WE ARE NOT ASKING FOR ANY SPECIAL TREATMENT HERE WE'RE ASKING TO BE INCLUDED INTO THE TAMARACK FAMILY WHEREAS CURRENTLY TAM MACK'S PRESENCE IS NOT FELT IN OUR COMMUNITY AND AS CONSTITUENTS WE DO NOT HAVE BUY INTO ANY TARMAC ELECTED OFFICIAL WHO DOES NOT DISPLAY AN INTEREST IN TUSCAN VILLAS. MAYBE IT'S NOT AN EASY THING BUT VERY FEW THINGS ARE. WE'RE ASKING YOU TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND TO HELP PROVIDE TUSCAN VILLAS WITH THE SAME WATER AND SEWAGE RATES AS THE CITY. OUR CITY OF TAMARACK THANK YOU. THANK YOU DAVID ROSENZWEIG. GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS DAVE ROSENSWEIG AND I AM A RESIDENT OWNER OF A CONDO 6 0 3 AT TUSCAN VILLAS 28 51 WEST PROSPECT IN TAMARACK. I RECENTLY BEEN MADE AWARE OF A TERRIBLE DISCREPANCY IN TUSCAN VILLAS WATER RATES AND WASTEWATER RATES AS COMPARED TO THOSE OF THOSE RATES BEING PAID BY SIMILAR RESIDENT CUSTOMERS IN OTHER SECTIONS OF TAMARACK LIKE THESE OTHER RESTAURANT CUSTOMERS. WE AT TUSCAN VILLAS GET OUR WATER SERVICES FROM FORT LAUDERDALE THROUGH FORT LAUDERDALE PIPES.

YES HOWEVER THESE OTHER RESIDENT CUSTOMERS PAY A LOWER SUBSIDIZED WATER RATE HAVING BEEN GRANTED A BULK WATER ARRANGEMENT BY THE CITY OF TAMARACK TUSCAN VILLAS WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS ARRANGEMENT. SINCE OUR ANNEXATION BY TAMARACK IN SEPTEMBER OF 2010 WE AT TUSCAN VILLAS HAVE BEEN PAYING A MUCH HIGHER RATE TO FORT LAUDERDALE PRINCIPALLY BECAUSE WE'RE NOT RESIDENTS OF FORT LAUDERDALE AND LIKEWISE AN ADDITIONAL 25 PERCENT SURCHARGE IS ADDED TO OUR BILL. THIS IS TOTALLY UNFAIR. WE RESIDE IN TAMARACK WE PAY REAL ESTATE TAXES TO TAMARACK AND YET ARE NOT GETTING ANY ANY AND. THE WHOLE BENEFITS FROM THE BULK WATER ARRANGEMENT THAT OTHER TAMARACK RESIDENTS RECEIVE THIS SITUATION MUST BE FIXED BEAR IN MIND. BEAR WITH ME FOR A MOMENT AS I SKETCH OUT A KIND OF A FICTITIOUS SCENARIO TO CONSIDER CORPORAL A

[03:30:04]

PARK SITUATED IN OUR SECTION OF TAMARACK IS A MARVELOUS RECREATIONAL FACILITY FOR ARGUMENT'S SAKE LET'S SAY THE TAMARACK WAS HAS DECIDED TO GRANT TUSCAN VILLAS A BULK ADMISSION FEE OF FIVE DOLLARS IF ANY FEE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE CHARGED AND ALL OTHER TAMARACK RESIDENTS WERE REQUIRED TO PAY FIFTEEN DOLLARS. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE UPROAR THAT THIS WOULD CAUSE. THIS WOULD NOT BE FAIR AT ALL. COMPARING THIS FICTITIOUS SCENARIO TO OUR PRESENT REAL WATER SITUATION MAKES ME REALIZE THE INEXORABLE INEQUITABLE PLACE TUSCAN VILLAS AND MY WATER PAYMENTS ARE IN. WE ALL PAY OUR TAXES AND WE ARE ALL PART OF THE WE ARE ALL PART OF TAMARA X FAMILY. IN THE NAME OF EQUALITY AND FAIRNESS WE NEED TO BE INCLUDED IN THE BULK WATER ARRANGEMENT WHICH SHOULD BE ENJOYED BY ALL TAMARACK RESIDENTS WHO DO NOT PAY TAMARACK WATER AND SEWER RATES. TIME TO FIX THIS IS NOW. THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH ROBERT ALFONZO. DAMON I JUST PLACE. WELL YOU JUST SAID MY NAME. SO ROBERT ALFONSO 1 0 2 1 4 NORTHWEST 18TH COURT TAMARACK. SO I'M HERE. FIRST OF ALL I WANT TO TELL YOU THAT I'M PRETTY DISAPPOINTED THAT YOU MEET ALL OF US WAIT THREE HOURS SO YOU COULD HAVE THIS PAP GOING ON WITH THESE POLITICIANS HERE AND YOU MOVED IT IN THE AGENDA. I KNOW WHAT YOU DID. IT'S NOT GOOD. IT'S NOT RIGHT. I REALLY DON'T APPRECIATE IT. ALL RIGHT. I'M HERE BECAUSE THERE WAS AN ARTICLE ON SEPTEMBER 3RD IN THE TEMP TALK FROM SHARON AARON BARON AND IT TALKS ABOUT HOW YOU GUYS WASTED MONEY. SO I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THAT FOR A MINUTE. I'M SURE YOU GUYS HAVE ALL SEEN THE ARTICLE ALREADY BUT IF YOU DON'T IF YOU HAVEN'T ALL SUBMITTED FOR THE RECORD SO INTENTIONAL WASTEFUL SPENDING OF TAXPAYER MONEY IS A FORM OF CORRUPTION. YES IT IS. YES THERE ARE DEGREES OF CORRUPTION. SOME WORSE THAN OTHERS. BUT IT'S ALL CORRUPTION. THIS CITY HAS A HISTORY OF INTERNAL CORRUPTION. I'LL REMIND YOU OF AKIN'S GRAD IT'S ONE EXAMPLE THAT WAS VERY SERIOUS CORRUPTION BUT ALL CORRUPTION IS SERIOUS. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN AGAIN. SO I CHALLENGE YOU ON THIS COMMISSION TO ADOPT RULES VOTE.

HAVE A CLEAR RULE WHERE YOU BRING THE PUBLIC IN AND YOU VOTE ON EVERY SINGLE EXPENDITURE IN FRONT OF US. AND ON THE RECORD. I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT STAPLES AND POST IT NOTES I'M TALKING ABOUT THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS LIKE THE TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS THAT YOU SPENT MICHELE ON YOUR OFFICE FURNITURE OR THE SIXTY FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS THAT YOU AND THE PREVIOUS MAYOR SPENT ON JUNKET TRIPS CALLED EDUCATIONAL TRIPS SIXTY FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS. JULIE THAT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE. WE WANT TO HAVE FULL VISIBILITY OF THESE EXPENDITURES. AND NO WE DON'T WANT EXCUSES. JUST DO IT AND DO IT QUICKLY. MIKE ALLEN I FIND IT PARTICULARLY PATHETIC THAT YOUR STAFF IN THIS ARTICLE FOR YOUR FIRST YEAR SPENDING SPREE YOU SPENT THAT MONEY THEY KNEW. YOU WERE SHOTS AND NOW YOU ASK FOR THOSE DECISIONS YOU. MIKE YOU SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO YOUR STAFF. BLAME ME FOR THE REST. I DISAGREE WITH YOUR SIX THOUSAND DOLLAR OFFICE REMODEL EXPENDITURE JOY AS YOUR CONSTITUENT. I ALREADY ASKED YOU TO RETURN THE FURNITURE A COUPLE WEEKS AGO. YOU DIDN'T EVEN HAVE THE COURTESY TO REPLY TO MY EMAIL THE SECOND TIME. THAT SAYS A LOT. IT SAYS YOU HAVE NO ARGUMENT TO MAKE AND SILENCE IS YOUR ONLY DEFENSE AND THAT'S PATHETIC. MARLIN BOLTON THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING REASONABLE AND NOT TAKE PART IN THIS. FAIR'S FAIR. YOU DID IT YOU DID IT RIGHT MAN. HISTORY IS LITTERED WITH POLITICIANS THAT WERE CORRUPT. I PROMISE YOU ALL ON THIS COMMISSION THAT WE WILL NEVER. WE WILL MEMORIALIZE YOUR NEEDS. IF YOU DO NOT ACT. THIS WILL NOT BE KIND TO YOUR NAMES IN THE FUTURE. MARLIN. ONE FINAL NOTE. YOU CONTACTED ME TODAY TO ASK TO TALK AND QUOTE CLEAR THE AIR ABUSING YOUR ELECTED OFFICE AND ITS POWER IS ANOTHER PROBLEM THAT WE HAVE IN TAMARACK

[03:35:04]

YOU DO NOT USE YOUR OFFICE FOR PERSONAL OR POLITICAL GAIN. MYSELF YOU DO NOT USE YOUR OFFICE FOR PERSONAL OR POLITICAL GAIN EVER. BUT YOU DID YOU HELP THE BODY YOU NEED YOUR OFFICE TO HELP HIM. SO. MARILYN I CALL ON YOU TO ISSUE A PUBLIC APOLOGY TO ME AND TO YOUR DISTRICT. BY THE WAY I'M NOT IN YOUR DISTRICT. I THINK I THINK YOU KNOW THAT. TO ME IT'S STRICT EXPLAINING WHAT YOU DID DO THIS OR I'LL DO IT FOR YOU. I'M NOT DONE YET. YOU MADE ME WAIT. BUT MR. ALPHONSE I DON'T CARE. YOU MAY NOT THINK I'M GOING TO READ THIS INTO THE RECORD NOW. YOU MADE ME WAIT. THANK YOU.

WE NORMALLY DO NOT ALLOW THAT. PLEASE KNOW THAT THERE ARE RULES AND PROCEDURES FOR A REASON AND I'M GOING TO DO IT RIGHT NOW. OFFICE FURNITURE ONCE USED BY FORMER ELECTED OFFICIALS ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE TAMPA COMMISSION AFTER YOU DECIDED TO REPLACE THE CHAIRS ON THE TAX DIME. ALTHOUGH HER OFFICE FURNITURE WAS ONLY TWELVE YEARS OLD MAYOR MICHELLE GOMEZ SPENT TEN THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED NINETY FOUR DOLLARS AND TWENTY NINE CENTS PLUS ONE THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED THIRTY FIVE DOLLARS AND SEVENTY EIGHT CENTS FOR NEW CARPETING. COMMISSIONER MIKE GOVERNMENT SPENT ELEVEN THOUSAND NINETY NINE DOLLARS NINETY ONE CENTS TO UPDATE THE FURNITURE FROM 1998. VICE MAYOR DEBRA FLACCO SPENT EIGHT THOUSAND FIVE DOLLARS AND FORTY SIX CENTS A COMMISSIONER JULIE FISHMAN SPENT SIX THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED NINETY ONE DOLLARS AND 30 CENTS FRESH PAINT FOR BOTH THE MAYOR AND THE VICE MAYOR'S OFFICE WAS EIGHT HUNDRED TWENTY DOLLARS AND CARPETING FOR ALL COMMISSION OFFICES AND RECEPTION AREA WAS EIGHT THOUSAND ONE OR SIXTY NINE DOLLARS INCLUDING LABOR TOTAL COST. FORTY FIVE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED NINETY FIVE DOLLARS AND SEVENTY FOUR FRANKINCENSE.

YEAH THAT'S A LOT OF MONEY FOR SOME FURNITURE. ONLY ONE COMMISSIONER MARLIN BOLTON REFUSED TO ORDER NEW FURNITURE. HE SAID HE WAS UNCOMFORTABLE SPENDING MONEY OF THIS MAGNITUDE AND THAT IT SHOULD HAVE FIRST BEEN DISCUSSED IN A PUBLIC SETTING FOR RESIDENTS. DAMN STRAIGHT COMMISSIONER GALEN FURNITURE EXPANSION COST THE MOST SAID IT WAS ORDERED FROM THE SAME CATALOG AS EVERYONE ELSE'S AND WAS MEANT TO LAST 20 TO 30 YEARS. HE INSISTED IT WAS THE CITY STAFF WHO DECIDED TO PURCHASE FURNITURE FOR ELECTED OFFICIALS IN NOVEMBER OR DECEMBER OF 2018. QUOTE FROM WHAT I RECALL THEY SAID THE TO EXTEND ITS USEFUL LIFE UNQUOTE. LAST PAGE GALEN SAID AN AGENDA ITEM FOR THE FURNITURE WOULD NEVER HAVE GONE BEFORE THE CITIZENS BECAUSE THE AMOUNT WAS LESS THAN SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. AS IF THAT'S TRIVIAL SOMEHOW AS ELECT QUOTE AS ELECTED OFFICIALS WE MAKE DECISIONS ON POLICIES THAT IMPACT OUR CITIZENS. WE DO NOT MAKE DECISIONS ON ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS OR EXPENSES THAT FALL BELOW SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS UNQUOTE. THAT'S A LIE. ALTHOUGH HIS DESK. HAD A FEW SCRATCHES. COMMISSIONER BOLTON DECLINED. NEW FURNITURE BECAUSE IT DID NOT. IT DIDN'T. THE RIGHT TO SPEND TAX PAYERS MONEY WHILE SHOWING NO REAL RETURN ON THE INVESTMENT. SO TRUE ONLY ENCOURAGING COMMISSIONERS TO SPEND MORE TIME IN THEIR OFFICES RATHER THAN OUT IN THE COMMUNITY. HE SAID THE RESIDENTS WERE THE REAL BOSSES. THAT'S TRUE. QUOTE. WE SHOULD GO TO THEM. WE ANSWER TO THEM NEVER THE OTHER WAY AROUND. UNQUOTE. YOU GUYS ALL DISGUST ME.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. GAFFNEY. YOU SAID MARRIED WOMAN. MAY I RESPOND. WE TRADITIONALLY DO NOT REPLY COMMISSIONER GO IN. AND ACTUALLY MR. ALONZO IS ALREADY OUT THE DOOR. MR. GOLDMAN GOOD GOVERNOR I WANT TO CLARIFY FOR THE OF PEOPLE WANT MY COMMISSIONER GO AND I BELIEVE MR. GOLF WISHES TO SPEAK ABOUT THE SAME MATTER. IS THAT CORRECT. OH NO NO. I'VE GOT ANYTHING. OK COMMISSIONER. GO ON PLEASE.

WE TYPICALLY DON'T BUT IF YOU WISH. AT THIS TIME PLEASE MAKE IT VERY QUICK. WE ALSO HAVE COMMISSIONER BOLTON WHO WISHES TO SAY SOMETHING. MR. GOVERNOR WELL YOU CAN TELL ME CAN YOU PLEASE DO BRIEFLY. NO NO. COMMISSIONER GOVERNOR MY WIFE HAD THREE MINUTES ALSO. MR. GOVERNOR WE DON'T. MR. GOVERNOR PLEASE HAVE A SEAT FOR A MOMENT. COMMISSIONER GALEN COMMISSIONER GELINAS SPEAKING THEN COMMISSIONER BOLTON IS SPEAKING AND WE DO NOT SHARE MINUTES. WE HAVE THREE MINUTES OF SACRIFICING UNITY. SO I THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT PLEASE DO NOT DO THAT. I'M ASKING TO HAVE A C SO

[03:40:02]

COMMISSIONER YELLEN CAN FINISH SPEAKING MACHINE GUN. YES. THANK YOU MAYOR GOMEZ. I JUST WANT TO CLARIFY FOR THE RECORD BECAUSE THE GENTLEMAN WHO SPOKE BEFORE MAY SOME INACCURATE STATEMENTS. SO NUMBER ONE THE CITY MANAGER CAN VOUCH FOR ME. I OFFER TO PURCHASE FURNITURE ON MY OWN. I OFFER TO PURCHASE FURNITURE ON MY OWN FOR MY OFFICE AND THE CITY MANAGER SAID NO WE'RE DUE FOR FOR A CHANGE OF FURNITURE AND MY PARTICULAR OFFICE WAS 31 YEARS OLD AND HE SAID WE BUY HIGH QUALITY FURNITURE AT MEANT TO LAST 30 YEARS AND WE'RE NOT. I'M NOT SPENDING TAXPAYER DOLLARS FOR MY PERSONAL GAIN. I DON'T THINK ANY OF US ARE. THIS IS OFFICE FURNITURE THAT BELONGS TO THE CITY. WE CAN RESIGN FROM OFFICE. WE CAN BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE. WE CAN MOVE AN ELECTION THE FURNITURE BELONGS TO THE CITY. SO WHEN I CLARIFY THAT FOR THE PUBLIC I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE THAT WITH SHARON IN HER QUESTIONING OF ME AND I DID NOT. BUT YOU KNOW I OFFERED THE PARTS OF THE FURNITURE. THIS IS FURNITURE THAT BELONGS TO THE CITY. I JUST WANT TO CLARIFY THAT. AND ONCE AGAIN WE DO NOT MAKE AS YOU KNOW ADMINISTRATOR OF THIS IS THE DECISION THE CITY MANAGER AND THE CITY STAFF MAKES A DECISION AND THEY NEED TO BE CLARIFIED WITH THE PUBLIC. AND AGAIN AS YOU ALL KNOW WE DID NOT EVEN SEE PURCHASES BELOW THE 60 VOTE THRESHOLD. I THINK THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR EDUCATING THE PUBLIC ON HOW LOCAL GOVERNMENT WORKS. SOME DON'T KNOW AND WE CANNOT ALLOW NON PROFESSIONAL STATE JOURNALISTS LIKE SHARON BARRON MAKE THESE FALSE STATEMENTS. THAT'S MY POINT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH COMMISSIONER GALEN COMMISSIONER BOLTON. GOOD EVENING JUST. JUST TO CLARIFY WHAT WAS SAID REGARDING THE AMOUNT OF MONEY SPEND AND MY FEELINGS OF NOT MY FEELINGS OF BEING UNCOMFORTABLE SPENDING MONEY OF THAT MAGNITUDE FROM ME. I DID NOT KNOW WHAT.

AMOUNT THE FURNITURE COST WOULD COME TO IF IT WERE GOING TO BE OVER SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS OR NOT. SO IF MORE THAN SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS WERE SPENT THEN WE WOULD BE IN HOT WATER. WAS JUST MY PERSONAL BELIEF THAT I DO NOT WANT TO FIND MYSELF IN A PICKLE. IT IS NOT GEARED TO WHETHER OR NOT FURNITURE WAS NEEDED IN THE OFFICES OR NOT. IT IS SIMPLY THAT I DID NOT KNOW WHAT THE TOTAL COST WOULD BE FOR EVERYONE. AND IT WAS NOT DISCUSSED IN PUBLIC SO THAT WE WOULD KNOW EXACTLY HOW MUCH WOULD HAVE BEEN SPENT. SECONDLY THE RESIDENT MENTIONS THAT I TEXTED HIM TODAY TO CLEAR THE AIR. THE RESIDENT HAS REPEATEDLY MADE ALLEGATIONS THAT I EMAILED THE CITY CLERK TO REPORT A SIGN IN HIS YARD. AND I DID. I EMAILED THE CITY CLERK AND I TOLD THIS TO THE CLERK A THAT HIS SIGN WAS TOO LARGE. HE HAD A BILLBOARD OFFICE SIGN IN HIS YARD IN TAMARACK. THE SAME HAPPENED IN NORTH LAUDERDALE AND I DID NOT APPRECIATE THAT. I TEXTED THE RESIDENT TO TELL HIM WHAT HOPE HOPING THAT HE WE WOULD CLEAR THE AIR WHERE THE LAWS IN TAMARACK. WERE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FURNITURE JUST TO CLEAR THE AIR WHERE THE SIGNS WERE. WHAT WAS THE RESIDENT CUT THE SIGNS AND CUT HIS SIGN IN TO AND AND THE CITY. THE CITY ALLOWED THAT SIGN. TO REMAIN IN HIS YARD ONE PIECE TO THE RIGHT AND ONE PIECE TO THE LEFT. AND THAT WAS NOT APPROPRIATE. AND I STAND. BY THAT. WITH THE RESIDENT. I HAVE NOTHING TO

[03:45:07]

APOLOGIZE TO THE RESIDENT FOR IF HE WANTS AN APOLOGY. HE WILL NOT GET IT. I DON'T THINK THAT I HAVE ANYTHING TO APOLOGIZE FOR HIM FOR. NO. AT NO TIME DID I USE MY PUBLIC OFFICE TO ADVANCE ANYONE IN AN ELECTION. WE FOLLOW THE LAW. IF WE ARE GOING TO ENDORSE SOMEONE FOR THEIR CAMPAIGN WE SIMPLY ADVISE THE CITY CLERK OF WHO ARE GOING TO ENDORSE. I CHOSE TO ENDORSE SOMEONE THAT I THOUGHT WOULD MOVE THE CITY FORWARD IN A POSITIVE WAY. WE ALL DISAGREE AND THAT'S WHAT I DID AND I STAND AND I STAND BEHIND THAT. I SUPPORTED ELVIN VILLALOBOS BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT HE WOULD HAVE BEEN RIGHT FOR THE. THE ROLE TO RUN OUR CITY. AT THAT TIME. THAT IS PASSED ELEVEN LOST. WE HAVE A NEW MAYOR. HER NAME IS MICHELLE GOMEZ AND. WE WORK WELL TOGETHER. IF THERE IS ANYBODY THAT I OWE AN APOLOGY TO IS THE IS THE MAYOR OF THE CITY NOT THE RESIDENT. WE HAVE NOTHING MORE TO TALK ABOUT THAN TO CLEAR THE AIR ABOUT THE ILLEGAL SIGN THAT HE HAD IN HIS YARD. AND. AND THAT IS IT. IF THE RESIDENT WANTS TO LISTEN TO THIS COMMISSION MEETING TO KNOW WHY WE WANT IT TO CLEAR THE AIR THAT IS THE TOPIC OF CONVERSATION NOTHING ELSE. SO MY ROLE OF ENDORSING ELVIN VILLALOBOS AS ALL CITY ELECTED OFFICIALS AT PROBABLY SOME POINT IN THEIR LIFE HAVE DONE TO ENDORSE SOMEBODY FOR SOME THING OR WHATEVER THAT IS NOT TAKING ADVANTAGE OF YOUR PUBLIC OFFICE. SO I'M VERY DISTURBED WITH WHAT THE RESIDENTS HAVE SAID. AND I'M GLAD HE'S NOT HERE TO MAKE A REBUTTAL. BECAUSE THAT IS NOT ALLOWED EITHER. WHAT IS EQUALLY NOT ALLOWED IN CLOSING IS FOR US TO ALLOW A RESIDENT TO TALK FOR MORE THAN THREE MINUTES. WE ARE THE ELECTED BODY OF THE CITY OF TIME RIGHT AND WE ARE THE ONES THAT SHOULD LET A RESIDENT CONTINUE OR NOT THE RESIDENT CAME IN HERE AND TOTALLY DISRESPECTED OUR COMMISSION AND DISRESPECTED OUR MAYOR. IT'S NOT THE FIRST TIME SOMEBODY HAS COME HERE TO DISRESPECT US. AND TODAY I STAND FIRMLY AND SPEAK FIRMLY THAT IF WE'RE GOING TO HAVE POLICIES IF WE'RE GOING TO HAVE ANY SORT OF POLICY OR CODE OR OF CONDUCT OR WHATEVER IT IS TO HAVE RESIDENTS SPEAK FOR THREE MINUTES OR IF THEY'RE GOING TO DISRESPECT US WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT THE THE RAMIFICATIONS ARE BROUGHT FORWARD. THE POLICE DID NOTHING AND HE DISRESPECTED US IN THESE CHAMBERS AND WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT. SO I HOPE WHEN HE'S EDITING HIS VIDEO HE PUTS ME SPEAKING MY RESPONSE AS A TAG AT THE END.

SO THERE GOES YOUR APOLOGY FOR ME DEFENDING THE LAWS OF THE CITY FOR YOU NOT TO PUT A BILLBOARD IN YOUR YARD. DO IT AGAIN. I DARE YOU. THAT'S IT THANK YOU COMMISSIONER BOLTON. MR. GARNETT YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES THREE MINUTES. WHEN YOU GET TO THIS PODIUM IT WILL NOT START BEFORE YOU SPEAK IT WILL EVEN LET YOU HAVE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS TO THE RECORD BEFORE YOU START GOING 5 1 0 6. MAYBERRY LANE I'M SORRY SORRY I DID NOT HEAR THAT WILLIAM GOLFING AT 5 1 0 6 MAY VERY WAY OKAY.

FIRST OF ALL YOU ALL WORK FOR US. SPEAK TO THE NAME. THAT'S A GOOD SHOW. I GOT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THIS OKAY. YOU GUYS GET SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS A MONTH AS A CAR ALLOWANCE FOR EACH ONE OF YOU GUYS. IS THIS TRUE. PLEASE PUT YOUR CAR. YOU CAN SPEAK WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE ANSWERING YOU. PLEASE HAVE YOUR THREE MINUTES TO SPEAK WITH US.

SPEAK. YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES. I JUST ASK YOU ABOUT THE CAR ALLOWANCE OKAY. YOU WENT OVER BY FIVE NINETY NINE TWENTY FOUR. I'M WONDERING SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS. DOES THIS

[03:50:04]

TRIGGER SOMETHING OK. OK. YOU DIDN'T MAKE OVER TO YOUR OFFICE YOU GOT A COUPLE OF NICE PUSSY CAT COUCHES I SAW THAT RIGHT MISS CALLAWAY IN THE ZONE IN THE. WHAT'S HER WHAT'S HER POSITION OFFICIALLY. COMMUNITY AFFAIRS DIRECTOR IS THAT IS THAT CORRECT. COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. CORRECT. THANK YOU. OK. WHY IS SHE RECOMMENDING ANYTHING THAT COMES FORWARD. YOU DON'T DO THAT. YOU DO NOT RECOMMEND SOMETHING YOU BRING IT FORWARD FOR A VOTE. YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS SAYING ONE WAY OR THE OTHER HOW YOU THINK SOMETHING SHOULD GO. NOW BACK TO THE LAST MEETING I WAS HERE FOR BECAUSE YOU HAD A DAY MEETING OK 8 3 8 POINT 0 1 6 PUBLIC CORRUPTION AND FRAUD. MISS GOMEZ. OK. HOW LONG HAVE YOU KNOWN SCOTT BACKMAN. OK. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN ASSOCIATION WITH 13TH FLOOR. OK. YOU'VE DONE TITLE WORK FOR THEM ADMITTEDLY SINCE 2014. CORRECT. WHO'S ADMITTING ANY NOW THAT WAS ADMITTED AT THE LAST. NOW SIR I HAD GUESTS. NOW SIR. GO AHEAD. YOU ADMITTED TAKING MONEY FROM CORRECT. YOU ADMITTED TAKING MONEY FROM HIM CORRECT. DID YOU ADMIT TAKING ANY CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS. I DID NOT TAKE ANY CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS SIR. OKAY. NOW WHY WERE THEY ALLOWED TO VOTE ON THIS ISSUE. ANY REACTION YOU KNOW 8 3 8 SAYS NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE TO ADMIT WHICH I DOUBT THAT YOU TWO WOULD HAVE ADMITTED THIS UNLESS MIKE SAID THAT. OK. BUT ON THE OTHER END OF THAT YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO VOTE.

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO RECUSE YOURSELF FROM THE VOTE. OK. OTHERWISE YOU CAN BE CHARGED FOR THAT. AND THE FACT THAT YOU WENT AHEAD AND DID IT AFTER BEING TOLD YOU SHOULD.

THAT'S WITH MALICE AND MALICE OCCURS NOT ONLY PHYSICALLY. IT OCCURS MENTALLY AND IT ALSO OCCURS. SO THAT'S IT FOR ME GOT OFF EASY TODAY OKAY. AND I WILL PUT IT ON THE RECORD BECAUSE WHY NOT AT THIS POINT IN TIME SIR. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IN THE VERY BEGINNING AND WE DON'T HAVE TO TALK ABOUT IT NOW I'M HAPPY TO MEET WITH YOU AND TALK WITH YOU ABOUT IT BECAUSE I DON'T UNDERSTAND SOME OF YOUR FIGURES. BUT AT NO POINT IN TIME HAVE I EVER DONE ANY TITLE WORK FOR 13TH FLOOR OR SCOTT BACHMANN'S LAW FIRM. I HAVE NO PROFESSIONAL AFFILIATION WITH THEM.

PARDON. FOR AS LONG AS I'VE BEEN IN OFFICE AND HE'S COME BEFORE US. KNOW SOMEWHERE WE KNOW THAT. BUT ANYWAY SIR IF YOU WANT TO TALK WITH ME I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO MEET WITH YOU. GOVERNOR. WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE YOUR THREE MINUTES PLEASE. JUST PLEASE.

INTO THE MICROPHONE BECAUSE IT REALLY IS HARD TO HEAR. SORRY. THANK YOU. NOW I'LL SWITCH TO THE MICROPHONE PLEASE. WENDY KOPP IN THAT 5 1 0 6 BABY 3 LANE CAMERA.

I'VE BEEN A RESIDENT OF TAMARACK FOR 20 YEARS. I BOUGHT MY HOUSE IN THE WOODLANDS FOR THE PEACE AND QUIET. I DON'T WANT TO GO THROUGH YEARS OF CONSTRUCTION THAT RUINED RUINED MY HOME LIFE. TERRIBLE. I DON'T WANT A BUILDER TO COME INTO THE MIDDLE OF OUR COMMUNITY THAT WE BUY OUR HOUSES FOR AT RECKITT JUST PUT IN BRAND NEW HOUSES WHICH WILL BE AS UGLY AS THE ONES THEY BUILT ACROSS THE STREET. THEY'RE NOT BUILDING TO GO WITH OUR DECOR CAMP. THE WOODLANDS IS BUILT IN A VERY MARKED.

NOW IT'S MEYER WASN'T THERE. NOW IT'S MODERN 50S. LOOK HOUSES. THEY'RE GOING TO COME IN AND BUILD THOSE UGLY STUCCO HOUSES ALL OVER IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS COMMUNITY OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPING. I DON'T KNOW WHY. SO THAT THEY CAN BUILD MORE AND MAKE MORE MONEY. IT DOESN'T HELP OUR COMMUNITY. I LOVE MY COMMUNITY MY NEIGHBORS ACROSS THE STREET LIVE ON THE GOLF COURSE. THEY ARE UP IN ARMS THAT SOME PEOPLE TAKE THE PRIVACY THEY BOUGHT THEIR HOUSE FOR AND BUILD A BUNCH OF UGLY STUCCO HOUSES LIKE THE REST OF THEIR BUILDINGS. THAT'S MY OPINION. BUT WE WANT TO SAY IT. MY FRIENDS ON THE GOLF COURSE ARE ONLY BOUGHT TWO OR THREE YEARS AGO WITH NOBODY TELLING THEM THAT A BUILDER WAS COMING IN TO DO THIS TO OUR HOME. IT'S NOT RIGHT. WE PAY TAX YOU PAY OUR TAXES. WE ENJOY THE NEIGHBORHOOD. IT'S A VERY CLEAN AND QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD WITH VERY LITTLE TRAP VERY LITTLE TRAFFIC.

[03:55:04]

THERE ARE NO BAD THINGS HAPPENING. WE DON'T WANT TO GIVE IT UP. TO LET IT ALL THE TEENAGERS AND ALL OTHER PEOPLE WHO BUY FOUR BEDROOM HOUSES. WE DIDN'T BUY FOR THAT REASON AND NOW WE OBJECT. YOU GET MY OBJECTION FROM THE COMMUNITY. I AGREE WITH WHAT MY HUSBAND SAYS BUT I'M TELLING YOU I BOUGHT THE HOUSE BEFORE WE MARRIED. AND I WANT TO KEEP THE HOUSE TILL I'M NO LONGER. SO PLEASE DON'T RUIN MY COMMUNITY PLEASE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. IS THERE ANYONE WHO WISH TO SPEAK WHO HAS NOT SIGNED UP TO SPEAK SEEING NONE THEN WE ARE DONE WITH PUBLIC PARTICIPATION.

YOU KNOW I KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THE LAST MEETING I WAS THE ONE TO PULL YOUR ITEM FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA. AND I DON'T WANT YOU TO TAKE THAT PERSONALLY. I JUST BELIEVE THAT YOU KNOW IF ESPECIALLY YOU KNOW WHEN SOME OF OUR RESIDENTS YOU KNOW COMPLAIN THAT THEY'VE GOT THIS TRAFFIC TICKET IN THE MAIL AND THE CAMERAS AS THEY RUN THE TRAFFIC LIGHT. AND THEY'RE ADAMANT THAT THEY DIDN'T. GO TO THE MAGISTRATE. THEY'RE SAYING THE MAGISTRATE DIDN'T EVEN LISTEN TO THEM. THEY JUST DID WHAT THEY WANTED TO DO AND THAT'S THE STUFF AND THEY WEREN'T HEARD. THOSE ARE REAL ISSUES. I KNOW A REALLY ON A DAILY BASIS. AND I JUST WANTED TO BE ABLE TO SEE AND MEET OR TO READ ABOUT WHO WOULD BE MAKING THOSE DECISIONS THAT COULD AFFECT THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF OUR RESIDENTS. AND THAT WAS ALL THERE IS TO IT. I WELCOME YOU TO THE CITY OF TIME RICK AND THE CAPACITY THAT YOU WILL BE SERVING US. AND I HOPE THAT THIS IS A LONG TERM RELATIONSHIP THAT WE'LL HAVE WITH YOU AND THAT. YOU WILL BE A VERY COMPASSIONATE MAGISTRATE THAT YOU WILL FOLLOW THE LAW. BUT YOU'LL BE COMPASSIONATE WHEN THE RESIDENTS COME BEFORE YOU. ESPECIALLY WITH THESE TICKETS THAT THEY'LL HAVE. THAT'S ALL OK. ABSOLUTELY. I THINK THAT YOU HAVE ALL EXHIBITED THE STRENGTH AND THE CANDOR THAT IT REQUIRES TO SERVE IN POSITIONS LIKE THIS WHERE YOU DO HAVE TO ENGAGE WITH THE PUBLIC. AND I THINK I'LL ABSOLUTELY BE ABLE TO FOLLOW IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS AND BE COMPASSIONATE AND FOLLOW THE LAW AT THE SAME TIME MAKE IT A MISSION TO GO.

ITEM EIGHT A FOR THE RECORD IS TEMPORARY AUDIENCE NUMBER 2 4 0 7 READS AS FOLLOWS AN AUDIENCE OF THE CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY TAMARACK FLORIDA PROVING A AND NUMBER TWO TO RENEW THE EXISTING FRANCHISE AGREEMENT FOR FURNISHING COLLECTION AND DISPOSAL OF RESIDENTIAL SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLING AND COMMERCIAL SOLID WASTE SERVICES FOR THE PERIOD EFFECTIVE ARMY OCTOBER 1 2020 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30 2023 ATTACHED HER TO AS EXHIBIT NUMBER ONE AND INCORPORATE HEREIN BY REFERENCE AUTHORIZING THE APPROPRIATE CITY OFFICIALS TO EXECUTE AMENDMENT NUMBER TWO THE FRANCHISE AGREEMENT WITH WASTE MANAGEMENT INC A FLORIDA IN TO TAKE ACTION CONSISTENT WITH THE INTENT OF THIS ORDINANCE PROVIDING FOR CONFLICTS SEVERABILITY AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE 24 0 7. THANK YOU AMERICAN NATION. THANK YOU AT THIS TIME I WILL ASK FOR ANY DISCLOSURES FROM MY COMMISSION I WILL GO DOWN THE LINE. COMMISSIONER FISHMAN NONE. COMMISSIONER.

GONE. YEAH. I DO NOT HAVE ANY FORMAL DISCUSSION ABOUT THIS WITH WASTE MANAGEMENT. I DID SPEAK TO THE REPRESENTATIVE AT THE WORKSHOP ON MONDAY BUT IT WAS MORE OF A SOCIAL CONVERSATION THEN ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR EXTENSION. I DIDN'T HAVE A DISCUSSION WITH REPRESENTATIVES FROM POSTAL AND WITH REPRESENTATIVES OF PUBLIC SERVICES. THANK YOU MR. VICE MAYOR. YES I DID HAVE A PHONE CONVERSATION TODAY WITH A REPRESENTATIVE FROM REPUBLIC COMMISSIONER BOLTON. YES I DID HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH WASTE MANAGEMENT. HAVE CONVERSATION WITH REPUBLIC SERVICES. I HAVE HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH WASTE PRO AND CONVERSATIONS WITH REPRESENTATIVES FOR COASTAL. I BELIEVE THAT IS IT. IF THERE ANYMORE. THEY'RE ALL REGISTERED LOBBYISTS AND THE ONUS IS ON THEM TO REGISTER AT CITY HALL. THE COMMISSIONER I HAVE SPOKEN WITH REPRESENTS ONE COASTAL REPUBLIC AND WASTE MANAGEMENT AND YES ALL LOBBYISTS HAVE BEEN REGISTERED. THAT BEING SAID WE ARE NOW TYPICALLY IN OUR PUBLIC. OUR AUDIENCE IS ON FIRST READING. THERE'S NO PUBLIC HEARING ABOUT IT THERE'S NO PUBLIC HEARING ON NEGATIVE THOUGHTS. FIRST READING FIRST RATING DO WE HAVE ANY PROPOSALS ANY PRESENTATION THAT WOULD BE DONE TONIGHT OR NOT TONIGHT. WE DIDN'T HAVE A PRESENTATION PLANNED FOR THIS EVENING MADAM MAYOR. HOWEVER WE DO HAVE STAFF HERE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS. IF YOU HAVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FROM THE WORKSHOP ON MONDAY COLLINS YOU HAVE COMMISSIONER GALEN I KNOW YOU DON'T LIKE TO BE LATE DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. I DON'T HAVE QUESTIONS I'M WAITING. FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE MEMBERS FROM A DIFFERENT COMPANY. SO I'M WAITING TO HEAR FROM THEM THAT I HAVE QUESTIONS AFTER THEY SPEAK ON THE MATTER. WE DON'T HAVE OTHER PARTICIPATION THROUGH THE FIRST READING OF THIS. SO THEN I DID HAVE A RECOMMENDATION THAT WE ISSUED THE ARTY AND NOT GO THROUGH WITH THE EXTENSION BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT THE COMPETITION AND THE INTEREST FROM THE MARKETPLACE WILL PROVIDE SOME COMPETITIVE QUOTES. AND I DIDN'T HEAR ANY LEGITIMATE REASON WHY WE SHOULD EXTEND THE AGREEMENT AT THE WORKSHOP. THERE WAS SOME TALK ABOUT THIS POTENTIAL AGREEMENT AMONG THE CITIES WITH THE COUNTY FOR HAULING OFFER DISPOSAL BUT THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE HAULING OF THE TRASH. I HEARD OUR TIMELINE WITH SATELLITE MEDIA EMPLOYEES DIDN'T FEEL LIKE DOING THE WORK OF AN RFP. I DIDN'T HEAR ANY LEGITIMATE REASON WHY WE SHOULD NOT GO THROUGH WITH THE RFP NOW. SO MY

[04:05:01]

RECOMMENDATION WOULD BE THAT WE USUALLY ARE FREE NOW WITH THE MARKETPLACE DELIVERED AND THE CITY MANAGER HAS THE RIGHT TO APPROVE THE BID REJECT ALL BID BECAUSE HE WOULD BACK WITH THE CURRENT CONTRACT. BUT THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE CITY TO SEE WHAT THE MARKETPLACE HAS TO OFFER. WE HAVE A BUDGET MEETING ON FRIDAY WHERE WE'RE POTENTIALLY GOING TO BE ASKING THE PUBLIC TO SPEND MORE MONEY WHERE THEY'RE NOT NECESSARILY RAISING TAXES BUT INCREASING FEES AND WE MIGHT RECEIVE HIGHER PROPERTY TAX REVENUE SO THIS CAN BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO LOWER THE COST OF THE RESIDENT THAT WE'VE GOT TO THANK YOU COMMISSIONER GALEN. I AM NOT SEEING ANYBODY ELSE'S LIGHTLY MR. BOLTON. I WOULD LIKE TO. HOWEVER ASK SOME OF THE COMPANIES THAT ARE REPRESENTED HERE. QUESTION I BELIEVE THAT THROUGH MY DISCUSSIONS SOME I CAN USE THEM AS AN EXHIBIT OR SOMETHING FROM THE CHAIR I'M SORRY COMMISSIONER BOLTON HAS QUESTIONS FOR SOME OF THE MEMBERS HERE IN THE AUDIENCE. IF THE CHAIR WILL PERMIT AND THE BODY WOULD LIKE TO HEAR ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS THE ANSWER IS YES. SO MR. BOLTON. OK. FIRST FROM REPUBLIC SERVICES MR. ONLY IF YOU WOULD NAME BUSINESS FOR THE RECORD PLACE GOOD EVENING JOANNE STANLEY REPUBLIC SERVICES 751 NW THIRTY FIRST AVENUE. THANK YOU MISS STANLEY HAVE. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN A POSITION WHERE YOU. ARE SERVING THE CITY IN THE SAME CAPACITY THAT THE WASTE MANAGEMENT IS SERVING THAT YOU ARE THE COMPANY THAT THE THAT THAT CITY HAS CONTRACTED TO. AND THEY WANT TO NOW GO OUT FOR FOR A BIT TO SEE WHAT. TO TEST THE MARKET. YES MANY TIMES. OK CAN YOU TELL US SO FAR OF ANY RECENT SCENARIOS WHERE WHERE THAT HAS HAPPENED THE CITY OF COCONUT CREEK JUST WENT OUT TO BID. WHY. WHY DO YOU THINK THEY WANTED TO GO OUT TO BID THERE. WELL THEY WENT OUT TO BID WHEN THEY HAD EXTENSIONS BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO TEST THE MARKET AND TO GET COMPETITIVE PRICING. THEY WERE TALKING WITH THE INSPECTOR GENERAL THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO JUST TWO TO GET FILLER BECAUSE THEY'VE HAD THIS SAME CONTRACTOR WHICH HAPPEN TO BE US FOR YEARS SO THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THERE'S A COMPETITIVE BID. AND THEN WE NEGOTIATED FOR TWO YEARS AND THEY JUST PUT A COMPETITIVE A BIT OUT. AND NOW WE'VE GOT A SEVEN YEAR CONTRACT. SO HOW LONG HAVE YOU AT THAT TIME. HOW LONG WERE WAS YOUR AGREEMENT WITH THE SAME FIVE YEAR AGREEMENTS WITH TO YOUR OPTIONS TO TWO YOUR OPTIONS. SO AT THAT TIME YOU WERE AT SEVEN YEARS. YES.

AND AT THAT PARTICULAR CONTRACT YES. AND THE AND THE THE OIG YOU JUST STATED WAS LOOKING INTO HOW THEY JUST YOU KNOW THE CITY MANAGER JUST OPTED TO TO JUST YOU KNOW PUT IT OUT AND IT WASN'T ANYTHING. PROMPTED BY THE A.G.. OKAY. AND AT THAT TIME NOT THE RENEWAL RATE BUT AT THAT TIME. HOW MUCH WAS YOUR RATE FOR THE SERVICES. THAT'S FOR THE VARIOUS SERVICES THAT YOU OFFERED. YOU THAT WAY. DISPLACED UP TO THE MIKE SIR. SO I CAN HEAR YOU AND THROUGH THE MAYOR NAMED HIM YOU ARE ALSO IF HE CAN CERTAINLY REPRESENT YOUR BUSINESS UNIT FINANCE MANAGER PUBLIC SERVICES SIR MAYBE WE CAN WE CAN'T HEAR YOU SIR EXCUSE ME. CAN YOU TELL US. WE COULDN'T HEAR ON THIS. SORRY. YOU'RE MICHAEL REPRESENT POLICE. ARE YOU LISTENING. WE ARE ISEE. O P O YOU ALLOW US. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. THANK YOU.

THE RATE AT THE TIME FOR THE RESIDENTS WITH THE CURRENT CONDITION OF WHICH WE WERE UNDER WAS I BELIEVE SOMEWHERE IN THE 15 DOLLAR RANGE. ALL AND RECYCLING TRASH AND FRANCHISE FEES. AND WHEN YOU WHEN THE CITY OF COCONUT CREEK WENT OUT FOR BID.

WHAT. WHO WHO WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE BID. ALL OF THE HAULERS WASTE MANAGEMENT COASTAL WASTE PRO. PUBLIC SERVICES. AND FROM YOUR RECOLLECTION. HOW. HOW MUCH WHAT WAS THE HIGHEST NUMBER RECEIVED. YEAH WE HAVE TO BE HONEST WITH YOU I'D HAVE TO GO

[04:10:06]

BACK AND TAKE A LOOK BUT WE'RE THINKING SOMEWHERE WE SPEND IT WITH SOMEWHERE MAYBE 20 30 PERCENT HIGHER THAN WE WERE. OKAY. AND AFTER THE BID WENT OUT THE CITY OF COCONUT CREEK DECIDED TO GO GO WITH YOUR COMPANY. WE HAVE A LONG STANDING RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM. WE EXECUTE VERY WELL ON THE STREET. NO ISSUES ANY ISSUES WE HAVE WE COME TO THE PLATE AND WE FIX THE ISSUES AND AND WE ARE VERY COMPETITIVE IN OUR PRICING. SIR I KNOW YOU'RE AN ADULT BUT I'M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE SAYING BUT BECAUSE YOU'RE CHEWING GUM IT'S IT'S VERY DISTRACTING IF YOU CAN'T STICK IT OUT. THANK YOU. SO. SO WHEN WHEN THE WHEN THE BID CAME BACK THE CITY OF COCONUT CREEK WENT WITH WITH YOUR COMPANY AND DID YOUR PRICE CHANGE. YES. IN THE PARTICULAR CONTRACTS AS YOU PUT THEM OUT ON THE STREET THEY REQUIRE NEW EQUIPMENT. WHEN YOU'RE SPENDING ALMOST 10 MILLION DOLLARS ON NEW EQUIPMENT PRICE IS GOING TO CHANGE. WE'RE REPLACING EQUIPMENT TWICE OVER A PERIOD OF SEVEN YEARS WITH AGAIN OPTIONS TO EXTEND THAT BELIEF TWO OPTIONS TO EXTEND SO PRICE INFLATION ON WAGES FUEL. COST OF METAL NEW TRUCKS NEW FLEET OK. SO WHEN YOU WENT WHEN YOU RENEW THE AGREEMENT FOR TWO YEARS YOUR PRICE DECREASED OR INCREASED PRICE STAYED THE SAME PRICE STAYED THE SAME THE SAME. WE OWE ALL WE DID WAS RECOGNIZE THE INDEXES THAT WERE ALLOWED AT THE TIME SO WE JUST STAYED WITH THE CURRENT PRICE WHERE WE WERE AT AND APPLIED THE CPI. AT THOSE TIMES THE PRICE TO ACHIEVE THAT RATE OF BEING THE SAME. DID YOU HAVE TO REARRANGE ANY OF YOUR YOUR SERVICES HOW YOU DID THEM CHANGING MULTI-FAMILY OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. EVERYTHING STAYED STATUS QUO. OK. SO YOUR BEST ADVICE. ABSENT OF YOU BEING A A COMPETITION AND INCOME RIGHT WOULD WOULD BE TO GO OUT FORBID BECAUSE YOU THINK THAT THE MARKET IS COMPETITIVE. YES.

ABSOLUTELY. THANK YOU SO MUCH. IF I WOULD HAVE THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE COASTAL.

NAME AND I JUST PLACE IT THERE. YES ABSOLUTELY. PHILIP MEDICO 1 1 9 7 7 CLASSIC DRIVE IN CORAL SPRINGS FLORIDA. I OWN AND OPERATE PTC PCM CONSULTING LLC AND HERE REPRESENTING COASTAL WASTE AND RECYCLING OF BROWARD COUNTY. OKAY. THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING YOURSELF AND THANK YOU FOR STAYING HERE. I HAVEN'T BEEN TO THIS TIME IT SHOWS THAT YOU'RE DEDICATED TO THE PROCESS. YOUR COMPANY DOES. WHAT EXACTLY HARMING WE DO COLLECTION HAULING DISPOSAL AND PROCESSING THOUGH CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION DEBRIS AND BULK WASTE. WE HAVE FOUR FACILITIES ONE IN MARTIN COUNTY ONE IN PALM BEACH COUNTY AND WE HAVE TWO FACILITIES IN BROWARD COUNTY A FULL PROCESSING FACILITY AND WE ACQUIRED THE LARGEST PRIVATELY HELD WASTE COMPANY CALLED WORLD WASTE IN THE CITY OF MIAMI AND A TRANSFER STATION IN MIAMI. WE ARE LOCATED ALL THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES. WHERE DO YOU BRING YOUR. WHERE DO YOU BRING THE TRASH WHEN YOU PICK IT UP FROM VARIOUS CITIES. JUST NAME ONE OF THE CITIES THAT YOU WORK LOCALLY HERE IN SOUTH FLORIDA ALL THE IN THE OPEN MARKETS SPECIFICALLY THE OPEN MARKET. DO YOU PICK UP FOR ANY LOCAL LIKE FORT LAUDERDALE FOR EXAMPLE. DOES YOUR COMPANY PICK UP FOR ANY SOUTH FLORIDA CITY COMMERCIAL. YES. NO RESIDENTIAL NO RESIDENTIAL WE DID BID ON COCONUT CREEK WHICH WHICH THERE IS IN OUR LOCAL AGREEMENT BUT ON THE IN THE OPEN MARKETS WE COLLECT BOTH RESIDENT WAS COMMERCIAL. WHO DO YOU COLLECT FOR FOR COMMERCIAL. A NUMBER OF ESTABLISHMENTS CAN YOU MEAN LITERALLY THOUSANDS OF THEM. CAN YOU NAME ONE IN SOFTWARE AND ONE OF. YES WE HAVE A 10 YEAR OPERATING AGREEMENT TO PROCESS ALL OF MARTIN COUNTY'S CONSTRUCTION THEMSELVES IN FLORIDA. THAT'S MARTIN COUNTY IS IN SOUTH FLORIDA ST.

LUCIE JUST NORTH OF PALM BEACH COUNTY MARTIN COUNTY IS NOT IN SOUTH FLORIDA

[04:15:05]

NOW. WELL IT'S SOUTHEAST FLORIDA AND IN MY OPINION IT'S DADE BROWARD PALM BEACH WASHINGTON COUNTY. WE HAVE A CONTRACT WITH THE SOLID WASTE AUTHORITY TO PROCESS ALL OF THAT. NOT MYSELF. I'M JUST. OH. I LIKE YOU. I'M TRYING TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION YET BUT I JUST YOU KNOW IT'S ELEVEN THIRTY SO I KIND OF WANT TO LIKE JUST GET THE ANSWERS. SURE. SO IN SOUTH FLORIDA IS THERE ANY ANY COMPANY THAT YOU PICK UP TRASH FOR YES FOR COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION TO RE AND FOR COMMERCIAL WHICH IS A NAME ONE CLIENT. LYNN LYNN CONSTRUCTION IS ONE OF THEM. THERE IS A NUMBER OF CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES THAT WE PICK UP FOR SPECIFICALLY WE'RE JUST IN THE PROCESS OF BEING THE CONTRACT FOR LAX ARCHIE GROVES AND PALM BEACH COUNTY. SO YOU DON'T PICK UP FOR ANY CITIES. WE DO NOT HAVE ANY CITIZEN. YEAH YEAH YEAH. WE.

I'M SORRY I. I STAND TO BE CORRECTED IN DADE COUNTY. WE HAVE BAY HARBOR ISLAND AND THE CITY OF HIALEAH. WE HAVE CONTRACTS WITH THOSE CITIES. OK JUST ABOUT TO BE AWARDED LOCKS ARE HATCHING GROSS. OK. SO WE KNEW EVEN COCONUT CREEK AND WE'RE QUALIFIED TO BID. OK. WHEN YOU PICK UP IN BAY HARBOR ISLAND RESIDENTIAL COMMERCIAL AND CURBSIDE RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING OK. WHEN YOU PICK UP IN B HARBOR ISLAND WHERE WOULD YOU BRING THE TRASH. THERE IS IN THERE A LOCAL AGREEMENT TO TAKE ALL OF THE WASTE IN DADE COUNTY TO THEIR FACILITIES TO THEIR TRANSFER STATIONS AS IN BROWARD COUNTY. THE CITY HAS IN THEIR LOCAL AGREEMENT TO TAKE ALL OF ITS MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE TO WILLOWBROOK LIBERATOR. WHERE DO YOU TAKE THE RECYCLABLES THE CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION DEBRIS. WE INTERNALIZE AND PROCESS THAT AT 1840 NW THIRTY THIRD STREET IN POWER LINE PALM BEACH OR POMPANO BEACH FLORIDA. WHAT WAS THE NAME OF THE COMPANY ITS COASTAL WASTE AND RECYCLING. SO YOUR HOME THE COASTAL FOUR SUITS YOU HAVE YOUR OWN RECYCLING. YES IT IS HOW IT OPERATES. IT'S A BRAND NEW FACILITY AT 22 MILLION DOLLAR FACILITY THAT OPERATES CONSTRUCTED. IT COVERS UP TO 60 PERCENT OF CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION DEBRIS YARD WASTE AND BULK WASTE PULP WASTE MATERIAL. WE ALSO HAVE A FACILITY IN PALM BEACH COUNTY AND IN MARTIN COUNTY DOING THE SAME THINGS ALONG WITH A CONTRACT FOR 10 YEARS TO PROCESS ALL OF MARTIN COUNTY'S CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION DEBRIS OK. IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO ADD AARON. THERE IS IF I MAY. I HAPPEN TO BE AT THE WORKSHOP. AND AND FRANKLY I'M HERE TO REQUEST THAT THE EXTENSION OF WASTE MANAGE ITS CONTRACT BE DENIED AND YOU ISSUE AN RFP. THE ONLY REASON I SAY THAT IS THAT THERE WERE GLARING FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM OMISSIONS ON THE TIMING OF THE RFP COCONUT CREEK WENT OUT TO BID WITHIN A FOUR TO SIX MONTH PERIOD. THIS CITY CAN DO THE SAME THING. AND TO SAY THAT IT WOULD TAKE 12 TO 18 MONTHS TO DO AN RFP FOR THIS CITY IS JUST SIMPLY NOT TRUE. AND SECONDLY MOST IMPORTANTLY IN YOUR BACKUP IT TALKED ABOUT A LACK OF COMPETITION IN THE MARKETPLACE. I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT WASTE MANAGEMENT WASTE PRO FCC REPUBLIC SERVICES AND OTHER MULTIPLE COMPANIES WOULD PARTICIPATE IN A BID PROCESS. AND WHAT THAT CLEARLY INDICATES THAT THIS IS A FLUID HIGHLY COMPETITIVE MARKET. WE'RE THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK. WE HAVE THE FINANCIAL CAPABILITIES AND THE EXPERIENCE AND THE INTELLIGENCE AND THE BACKGROUND. I BEING IN THE MARKET FOR 30 YEARS. THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE. IT'S AUTOMATED SERVICE AND IT TAKES A LOT OF CAPITAL INVESTMENT. SO TO SAY THAT THERE'S NOT COMPETITION IN THE MARKETPLACE IS JUST INACCURATE. AND FINALLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY YOU'RE EXTENDING A CONTRACT WITHOUT TESTING THE MARKETPLACE. AND THE ONLY WAY YOU REALLY

[04:20:02]

TEST THE MARKETPLACE IS TO GET THE INDUSTRY EXPERTS IN HERE TO BID ON YOUR SYSTEM. YOU'RE EXTENDING A CONTRACT ON A NUMBER THAT IN FACT IS ILLUSORY. IF YOU DON'T GO OUT TO BID YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO KNOW WHAT YOUR REAL NUMBER IS. AND THE BEAUTY OF YOUR CITY IS YOU HAVE A BAFFLE IN YOUR PROCUREMENT CODE. SO IF YOU END UP WITH TWO VERY QUALIFIED COMPANIES VERY CLOSE TO EACH OTHER YOU'RE GONNA BE IN THE POSITION TO BE ABLE TO DO A BAKE OFF AND ASK HER BEST AND FINAL OFFERS. SO THE DEAL THAT'S IN FRONT OF YOU NOW CAN BE SUBSTANTIALLY BETTER IN THE FUTURE. AND I IMPLORE YOU THAT IT'S YOUR DUTY AND OBLIGATION TO YOUR CONSTITUENTS TO GO OUT AND TEST THE MARKET. EXTENDING THIS CONTRACT AT THIS TIME AND PLACE AND TO SAY THAT YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO DO IT IS AN ACCURATE IN ALL DUE RESPECT. AND TO SAY THAT THERE'S NOT COMPETITION IS JUST SIMPLY NOT THE TRUTH. OK. I HOPE I ANSWERED ALL YOUR QUESTIONS. YOU DID AND I APPRECIATE THE TIME. THANK YOU SO MUCH. IS WINS PROOF HERE. I DON'T WAYNESBORO. KNOW I THINK THERE WAS SOME FOLKS THAT WERE HERE THAT LEFT. OK THANK YOU. IF I WOULD HAVE WASTE MANAGEMENT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. YOU'RE WELCOME. THANK YOU. COMMISSION THANK YOU MAYOR. GOOD EVENING.

LOUIS G PACE WASTE MANAGEMENT TWENTY THREE EIGHTY COLLEGE AVENUE DAVEY AND FOR THE RECORD LOUISIANA I LIKE YOU DO SO DON'T GET JEALOUS. TELL ME ABOUT THE RATES THAT WE HAVE HERE IN TIME RACK FOR THE VARIOUS SERVICES THAT'S YOU YOU HAVE IS IT FOURTEEN DOLLARS AND I'M SPEAKING FROM RECOLLECTION I'M SORRY TO GO ON I PACKED MY STUFF UP FOURTEEN THOUSAND EIGHTY FOUR SENDS THE CURRENT RATE IS FIFTEEN NINETY ONE FIFTY NINETY ONE IT WILL CHANGE IN OCTOBER IT WILL CHANGE IN OCTOBER TO WHAT SIXTEEN SEVENTEEN SIXTEEN SIXTEEN DOLLARS AND 17 CENTS SIXTEEN DOLLARS AND 17 CENTS. DO YOU RECALL IN 2010 11 THE COMMISSION APPROVING TWENTY TWO DOLLARS AND 90 CENTS. DOES THAT RING A BELL. NO SIR IN 91 I WAS IN OPERATIONS. OK. SO YOU'VE NEVER EVER CHARGED THE CITY. TWENTY TWO DOLLARS. AND THE CITY OF TAMARACK.

YEAH. NO. OK. SO NOT THAT I'M AWARE OF. OK SO WHAT. REMIND ME OF THE VERY FIRST YEAR THAT WASTE MANAGEMENT GAVE THAT WE CONTRACTED YOUR SERVICES HERE IN TIME. I BELIEVE THE CONTRACT STARTED IN 2010. AGAIN I WASN'T INVOLVED IN THAT PROCESS BACK IN 2010. YOU WERE. NO SIR I WAS AN OPERATIONS I WAS NOT MANAGING MUNICIPAL AGREEMENTS. OK. AND IN 2010 WHAT WAS THE RATE. I APOLOGIZE. HE WENT IN 2000. SHAME ON YOU. IN 2010 WHAT WAS THE RATE. I DON'T HAVE THAT IN FRONT OF ME NOW FOR 2010. NO SIR. HOW ABOUT 2011. THE EARLIEST RATE I HAVE WITH ME IS JUST THE CURRENT RATE WE HAVE I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS GOING TO NEED TO BRING PRIOR RATES MR. MASON NAME NOT EVEN AS YOUR NAME AND TITLE PLEASE. NOT I JUST DON'T NEED THE ADDRESS. MARK MASON FINANCIAL SERVICES DIRECTOR THE RATE IN ON 10 1 2011 WAS 14 DOLLARS AND 43 CENTS. TWO THOUSAND AND TEN IN 2011 THAT'S WHEN THIS CONTRACT WENT INTO EFFECT OCTOBER 1 2011.

OCTOBER 1 2011 GROWTH. AND THEN WHAT. WHAT WAS IT IN 2012 I DIDN'T BRING ALL THE RATES BUT IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE CHANGE IN THE RATES BETWEEN 2011 AND 2009 819 ARE. IT WAS A TWELVE POINT SIX PERCENT CHANGE IN RATES. OKAY. THE INFLATION RATE IS FOURTEEN POINT ONE PERCENT. OKAY. THANK YOU. I'M PRETTY SURE THAT'S WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR. YEAH OKAY. YES YOU ALWAYS ANSWERED MY QUESTIONS WITH PRECISION AND I APPRECIATE YOU. SO THE RATES WILL WILL CHANGE IN OCTOBER 2019 DO YOU THINK THAT

[04:25:12]

WILL CHANGE AGAIN IN 2020 THE WAY THE AGREEMENT ALLOWS FOR AN ANNUAL ADJUSTMENT BASED ON CPI AND THAT AND WHAT IS THAT ANNUAL ADJUSTMENT BASED ON CPI. IT COULD BE LIKE MR. MASON SAID OVER THE SPAN IT'S BEEN TWELVE PERCENT. IT COULD BE A ONE POINT EIGHT PERCENT IT COULD BE THREE PERCENT OF WHATEVER CPI IS WE DON'T CONTROL THAT. OKAY. WHERE WHERE DO YOU BRING YOUR TRASH. THE CITY'S MUNICIPAL WASTE MUST BE DELIVERED TO WHEEL OPERATOR. WHERE DO YOU BRING YOUR RECYCLABLES. THE CITY'S RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING IS DELIVERED TO ROUTERS RECYCLING ON U.S. 27 SO I'M DO YOU KNOW WHERE ANY OF YOUR COMPETITORS BRING THEIR TRASH. IT'S. IF OUR COMPETITORS. I'M SORRY. LET'S USE WAZE PRO AND. REPUBLIC SERVICES AN EXAMPLE. WHERE DO THEY BRING THEIR TRASH. IT WOULD DEPEND ON THE MUNICIPALITY THEY SERVICE. SO ON TO A CITY VERY CLOSE TO TAMARACK SUNRISE. COURTNEY'S GORGEOUS IN SUNRISE. A WHEELER BREEDER WITH A BREEDER. THEY BOTH PEOPLES BRING IT TO WILLA BREEDER. I BELIEVE BOTH CITIES ARE COMMITTED TO WIELD GREATER. YES.

RIGHT. WHERE DO CORAL SPRINGS AND SUNRISE BRING THEIR TRIBE THEIR RECYCLABLES. IT WOULD EITHER BE THE FISH THEY WOULD EITHER BE THE RUDER FACILITY OR A FACILITY OFF A WILD ROAD. OK. SO WHAT WOULD YOU SAY THE DIFFERENCE THEN. IS WITH YOUR SEARCH WITH YOUR COMPANY AND LET'S SAY REPUBLIC SERVICES AND WASTE BRAWL. IF THEY PICK UP THE TRASH AND THEY BRING IT TO WILL A BREEDER THEY PICK UP THE RECYCLABLES AND THEY BRING IT TO THE SAME PLACE WAS THEN THE DIFFERENCE IF IF THEY WOULD BE AMENABLE TO OFFERING A LOWER RATE FOR FOR HAULING. IT. IF THE COMPETITOR WOULD BE A I COULDN'T TELL YOU THEIR PRICING OR THEIR COST STRUCTURE. SO. SO THEN IF THEY IF WE WENT UP FOR BID AND THEY CAME IN AT A LOWER RATE THAN WHAT WOULD BE THE DIFFERENCE BECAUSE THE BRING THE TRASH THE SAME PLACE THEY BRING THE RECYCLABLES THE SAME PLACE. WHAT SETS YOU WASTE MANAGEMENT APART FROM WASTE BRO OR REPUBLIC SERVICES OR COASTAL. WELL I BELIEVE WE HAVE THE BEST PEOPLE. THAT'S WHAT SETS US APART. WE HAVE THE BEST PEOPLE OK. AND TONIGHT WE ARE DEALING WITH THE HAULING CONTRACT OR ALL OF THE AGREEMENTS. FOR US IT WOULD ONLY BE THE HAULING CONTRACT. DISPOSAL IS A SEPARATE SEPARATE ISSUE AND NOT WITH US BECAUSE OF THE BACKUP INFORMATION THAT I WENT THROUGH KIND OF SUGGESTED DIFFERENTLY LIKE I THOUGHT IT WAS ALTOGETHER. SO THIS IS JUST JUST HAULING YES SIR. OK. AND THE PRICE THAT YOU QUOTED. THAT'S 15. REMIND ME THE CURRENT RATE FIFTEEN NINETY ONE FIFTY NINE TO ONE THAT IS INCLUSIVE. THAT IS ALL IN. THAT'S ALL IN WHAT WE CHARGE THE CITY CORRECT FOR IT FOR HAULING AND DISPOSAL. OR IS THERE ANOTHER RATE FOR DISPOSAL THAT YOU WOULDN'T BE PRIVY TO BECAUSE THAT IS WE LIBERATOR THE RATE FOR DISPOSAL I BELIEVE IS CURRENT RATE IS FORTY FIVE DOLLARS A TONNE FOR DISPOSAL AT REAL OPERATOR AND HOW MUCH FOR RECYCLABLES. I BELIEVE THE RECYCLING PROCESSING IS IN THE HIGH 80S PER TON OR NINETY DOLLARS A TONNE THE PROCESSING WHY HAVE WASTE MANAGEMENT NOT CONSIDERED YOU KNOW THAT W AN UNFAIR QUESTION. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR FOR ANSWERING MY QUESTIONS. I WILL FAIL. THANK YOU. COMMISSIONER EFFICIENT. I JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY THE RECORD I DID NOT SPEAK TO WASTE MANAGEMENT BUT I DID SPEAK TO REPUBLIC SERVICES COASTAL. THANK YOU I HAVE NO LASLETT I SHOULD GO ON I NEED TO SAY YES I DID YES.

[04:30:04]

I APPRECIATE THE PRESENCE OF LIVE UP THEN IS ON THE THREAD THAT CONFIRMS I ALSO HAD INFORMAL DISCUSSIONS WITH WAZE PRO WHILE I WAS AT OTHER CITY HANDLING OTHER BUSINESS BUT THEY DID EXPRESS AN INTEREST IN BUILDING ON THE CITY OF TOWN LIKE WHENEVER IT CAME OUT THAT THEY WEREN'T INVOLVED IN THIS PARTICULAR. ITEM. THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS. THANK YOU. SAME AS NO OTHER LIGHTLY CALL QUESTION PLEASE. AND FOR THE RECORD THE ITEM BEFORE THE MAYOR AND COMMISSION IS IN FACT ITEM NUMBER 8 A WHICH IS THE ORDINANCE FOR FIRST READING WITH REGARD TO THE EXTENSION OF THE WASTE MANAGEMENT CONTRACT. FIRST READING THESE HAVE FOR MOTION AND A SECOND PLEASE WE NEVER GOT ONE EARLIER BEFORE THE QUESTION IS CALLED. I LIKE THIS LETTER. DON'T LET IT SLIP. BUT HEY I'M NOT THAT TIRED. OK GO AHEAD. COMMISSIONER BOLTON YOUR SECOND ROUND. SO THERE IS A SAYING THAT SAYS IF THE WHEEL IS NOT BROKEN THEN DON'T FIX IT. AND SO YOU KNOW IN THIS CASE I DON'T THINK THAT THE WHEEL IS IS BROKEN. I THINK THAT WHEN THE TIME COMES TO GO OUT FOR A BIT AND THAT'S THE STUFF WE WILL HAVE TO LOOK AT DIFFERENT COMPANIES AND MAKE A DECISION ANYWAY. I WANT TO PROTECT THE COST THAT WE HAVE RIGHT NOW. GOD FORBID. WE GO OUT FOR A BIT NOW AND THEN THE PRICES COME BACK AT A HIGHER RATE. AND THEN NOW WE HAVE TO CHARGE THE RESIDENTS MORE MONEY AND THEN HAVE PEOPLE LIKE JILL LEWIS COME HERE AND SCREAM AND ASK FOR HIGHER AIDES. OH I DON'T THINK THAT WOULD BE YOU KNOW OR ANY RESIDENT I'M PICKING ON HER. I JUST THINK THAT SHE'S VERY INTELLIGENT AND SHE. YOU KNOW LOOKS FOR THINGS. YOU KNOW SO SO. SO I REALLY WANT TO BE ABLE TO PROTECT THE RATE THAT WE HAVE. AND YOU KNOW AT A LATER DATE SOMEDAY WHENEVER THAT DAY IS LOOK AT WHAT OTHER COMPANIES ARE OFFERING. AND THAT'S THE STAFF AND YOU KNOW SEE WHAT THEY WOULD COME WITH AT THAT TIME. SO IT'S IT'S NOT THAT. I'M AGAINST OTHER COMPANIES. I THINK THAT. YOU KNOW SOME COMPANIES REPRESENT THE THEMSELVES A LITTLE BIT BETTER THAN OTHER COMPANIES. AND THAT'S WHY I KIND OF YOU KNOW JUST WANT TO STICK WITH OUR AGREEMENT NOW BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST NOT SOLD WITH HOW AT LEAST ONE OF THE COMPANY REPRESENTED THEMSELVES TONIGHT. SO I THINK WITH TIME AND GIVING THEM TIME TO GROW AND MAKE AND GETTING THEIR ACTS TOGETHER WE COULD LIKE LOOK AT IT AT A LATER DATE. BUT FOR NOW I I LIKE THE I'D LIKE TO STAY WITH THE AGREEMENT WITH WASTE MANAGEMENT AND I THINK MY VOTE WILL REFLECT THAT QUESTION CLARIFICATION QUESTION FOR EITHER THE CITY MANAGER AND OR THE CITY ATTORNEY. GO ON. GO AHEAD AND ASK THE QUESTION. AND EITHER THE CITY MANAGER OR THE CITY ATTORNEY WILL RESPOND. GO AHEAD. SO IF WE GO OUT TO BED REGARDLESS OF THE RESULT OF THAT OUR CITY DOES THE CITY OF TAMARACK DO THE CITY MANAGER RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REJECT ALL BID AND CONTINUE THE CURRENT CONTRACT GENTLEMEN. EITHER ONE OF YOU PLEASE ANSWER I'M I'M GOING TO I'M GOING TO SAY YOU KNOW TYPICALLY WE WOULD PREFER TO DEFER TO KEITH GLASS JUST BECAUSE OF THE TECHNICAL NATURE OF THE QUESTION. I THINK THE ANSWER IS YES THAT CAN BE DONE. I I'LL I'LL DEFER TO THE CITY ATTORNEY IF HE HAS A DIFFERENT OPINION. NOT YET. MADAM MAYOR TO THE COMMISSIONER I CAN ASSURE YOU ALAN CAN YOU HEAR ME OKAY. JUST ONE. GOOD. THE ANSWER IS IS THAT IN TYPICAL FORMAT THE RFP OR BIDDING PACKET IS THAT WE PROMOTE THROUGH THE CITY'S ADMINISTRATION WOULD PROVIDE THE RESERVATION OF RIGHTS TO IN FACT REJECT ALL BIDS THAT ON THE PREMISE THAT THERE'S A BASIS TO DO SO AND THAT YOU

[04:35:02]

RESERVE THAT RIGHT TO DO IT AND YOU WOULD LEGALLY BE ABLE TO DO THAT. SO THE ANSWER IS YES AND TYPICALLY AT LEAST BASED MY EXPERIENCE THE CITY MANAGER RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REJECT ALL BIDS FOR ANY REASON. SO THERE'S THAT TO BE A SPECIFIC CHARGE.

LET'S TRY TO FIGHT TO. THAT RIGHT. THE ANSWER MAN AND MR. COMMENT COMMISSIONER IS THE FACT YOU CAN'T BE RECKLESS ABOUT IT AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PROCESS IN PLACE AND THE DOCUMENTS HAVE TO REFLECT THAT PROCESS AND TO THE EXTENT THAT THE CITY FULFILLS ITS OBLIGATIONS IN OFFERING UP THE SERVICE TO THE PUBLIC AND THE AND THE VENDORS PROVIDE THEIR PROPOSALS IN GOOD FAITH. THE ANSWER IS THAT THEY ARE BIDDING BASED UPON THE CONDITIONS SET FORTH IN THE BID PACKAGE AND THAT WOULD INCLUDE THE CITY'S ABILITY TO IN FACT WITHDRAW OR TO IN FACT REJECT BIDS JUST TO PUT YOUR MONEY TO DO AT THEIR PRESENT. CAN YOU REPEAT THAT. COMMISSIONER WE'RE HAVING. AT LEAST I AM I'M HAVING A LITTLE TROUBLE HEARING YOU YOU'RE VERY LOVELY THE PROCUREMENT DIRECTOR KEITH BLACK PREGNANT THIS EVENING. YES HE IS. HE IS QUITE WELL. AND WHILE KEITH IS MAKING HIS WAY TO THE TO THE PODIUM YOU KNOW JUST KEEP IN MIND THAT AS WEAK AS WE COMPARE THE ACTUAL RATES FOR FOR THE HAULING OF THE GARBAGE YOU KNOW WE HEARD REFERENCE TO THE COCONUT CREEK BID THAT WAS RECENTLY DONE AND THE 16 DOLLAR AND 53 CENT COST FOR THAT HAULING. KEEPING IN MIND THAT WASTE MANAGEMENT'S PROPOSAL FOR THE COMING YEAR UNDER THEIR EXISTING CONTRACT IS SIXTEEN DOLLARS AND 17 CENTS WHICH IS LOWER THAN THE RECENTLY BID COCONUT CREEK PRICE. ONE THING THAT MIGHT HELP AND IT DOESN'T HAVE TO DO WITH HAULING IT HAS TO DO WITH DISPOSAL BUT IT MIGHT HELP IF WE HAD TROY GUYS EXPLAIN THE DISPOSAL PROCESS AND THE DISPOSAL COSTS AND HOW WE WORK TO CONTROL THOSE AND SAVE MONEY THROUGH THE DISPOSAL PROCESS. AGAIN THAT IS NOT WHAT WE ARE CONSIDERING TONIGHT BUT IT CERTAINLY IS A FACTOR IN THE RATE THAT THE RESIDENT RECEIVES SO KEITH IS IS AT THE PODIUM COMMISSIONER GALLON FOR YOUR QUESTION. GOOD EVENING. THAT'S YOUR PURCHASING MANAGER AND HE KNEW WHAT YOUR PROFIT IS WHEN IT COMES TO DROPPING IN OUR FEE FOR THE SERVICE. YOU JUST COPY AND PASTE THE LAG ON THAT WAS ISSUED. YOU LOOK AT THE RECENTLY ISSUED BY THE CITY. YOU GET FEEDBACK FROM COMPETING VENDORS TO MAKE SURE THERE'S NO OBSTACLE THE ARTIFICIAL BARRIER THAT WOULD KEEP OTHER BIDDERS FROM BIDDING. WELL WE WE DO A NUMBER OF THINGS. COMMISSIONER ONE ONE IS YES WE DO A LITTLE BIT OF CUTTING AND PASTING THAT AT THAT. THAT'S OBVIOUSLY THERE'S SOME THINGS THEY'RE GOING TO IT GOING TO TRANSLATE FROM ONE PROPOSAL TO ANOTHER. WE WORK WITH OUR USING DEPARTMENT AND THEY WORK WITH THAT AS WELL. WE ALSO LOOK TO OTHER COMMUNITIES IN THE AREA. WE WE WE WOULD WE WOULD GO BACK TO A COMMUNITY FOR INSTANCE THAT RECENTLY ISSUED A SOLICITATION AND ASKED TO SEE COPIES OF THEIRS TO SEE THERE ANY NEW AND INNOVATIVE METHODOLOGIES THAT THEY'VE COME UP WITH. SINCE WE HAD LAST COME UP WITH OURS. WE WE WILL HAVE. WE WILL SEND THE RFP OUT AND WHAT WE WILL HAVE IS WE'LL HAVE. A PRE PROPOSAL CONFERENCE. AND THAT'S THAT'S AN AREA WHERE WE PROVIDE THE VENDOR COMMUNITY THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE COMMENTS OR DISCUSS ISSUES AND THOSE SOME OF THOSE PRE THREE PROPOSAL CONFERENCES THAT HAVE ACTUALLY LED TO SOME ADDENDUM THAT ARE THEN ISSUED THAT ACTUALLY HAVE CHANGED SOME OF THE PROCESS ARE SOME OF THE SOME OF THE REQUIREMENTS WE HAD BECAUSE THEY'RE THERE THEY'RE REFLECTING MARKET CONDITIONS OR WHATEVER. AND SO WE USE IN ALL THOSE DIFFERENT VEHICLES TO DO THAT ARE ALL BLENDED INTO OUR PROCESS. IT'S SORT OF A DYNAMIC PROCESS OBVIOUSLY.

SO. SO HOW LONG WOULD IT TAKE YOU TO RECREATE AND I'D BE IF YOU WERE TO START TODAY AND GET ONE DRAFT IN THE READY. HOW LONG WOULD IT TAKE YOU TO GET IT DONE FROM START TO FINISH AND GET IT REVIEWED BY THE MANAGER FOR APPROVAL TO GO OUT TO THE MARKET. WELL WE ALSO ME IN A PROCESS THIS COMPLEX WE ALSO MAY BRING IN SOME PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE. AND IN THE PAST WE HAVE WE HAVE UTILIZED CONSULTANTS. AND SO ONCE WE DRAFT SOME INITIAL DOCUMENTS THAT I WOULD SAY WOULD PROBABLY TAKE OR

[04:40:03]

PROBABLY BOTH TIME WE GO BACK AND FORTH INTERNALLY. THAT'S THAT'S PROBABLY I WOULD SAY TO TWO MONTHS TO DO GO THROUGH THAT PROCESS NOT SOMETHING THIS COMPLEX. NOW THIS WAS JUST A SIMPLE SERVICE. OUR APF EVERY DAY A LOT LESS TIME. BUT THIS THIS ONE WE JUST WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE DO IT RIGHT. AND SO BE ABOUT TWO MONTHS BEFORE WE GET THE GET THAT CREATED WE WOULD THEN WANT TO IF WE IF WE WOULD BRING IN A CONSULTANT THERE'D BE SOME TIME FRAME FOR THEM TO GO BACK AND FORTH AND WITH THE DISCUSSION WITH WITH US ON THOSE AND THOSE ASPECTS OF THE PROPOSAL THAT. WE MAY NEED TO TWEAK SOME WAY OR ANOTHER AND THAT THAT CAN GO BACK AND FORTH MAYBE FOR ANOTHER MONTH OR TWO. AND SO WE'RE UP TO ABOUT THIS ONE. AGAIN THIS IS A LOT LIKE THIS IS A BIT LONGER PROCESS. WE'RE HOME AFTER ABOUT FOUR MONTHS I WOULD SAY IF WE'RE USING OUR CONSULTANT BEFORE WE PROBABLY GET THE PROPOSAL OUT ON THE STREET AND WE HAVE USED THE CONSULTANT AND MAYBE THE CONSULTANT FOR THE THERAPY AND THE. WE HAVE. WE'VE ACTUALLY OUR LAST PROPOSAL I BELIEVE WE USED TWO DIFFERENT CONSULTANTS AT ONE STAGE OR ANOTHER WAS ONE AS A AS AS THE DOCUMENT PREPARATION AND WE USE THE OTHER ONE FOR THE EVALUATION FOR UP PROCESS. WHAT WAS THE PROCESS OF BEING BUILT CONSULTANT I'M NOT. COULD YOU REPEAT THAT AGAIN I'M SORRY I DIDN'T HEAR WHAT WAS THE PROCESS OF SELECTING THOSE CONSULTANTS. WELL. WE USED I BELIEVE AND WE USE ON OUR FIRST ONE. WE USED TO BE BACK AND WE USED. COMMISSIONER ON ARE YOU ASKING WHICH CONSULTANTS WERE USED OR HOW DID THEY SELECT THE CONSULTANTS. HOW DO THEY COLLECT THEM. SO WE USE AN RFP BROUGHT THEM TO SELECT VARIOUS VENDORS OR BETTER SERVICES. WE'RE USING THE CONSULTANT WORKFORCE THAT WE USE LIKE THE CONSULTANT. WHO'S BEEN. IS THERE AN RFP PROCESS LIKE THAT CAN OPEN. WELL IT'S A NORMAL PROFESSIONAL SERVICES PROCESS THAT WE UTILIZE FOR THAT. WE WOULD GO OUT AND WE WOULD SOLICIT PROPOSALS FROM THOSE CONSULTANTS IN THE PAST WE HAD ACTUALLY ONE CONSULTANT THAT REALLY WAS NOT A HIGH DOLLAR. THEY WEREN'T VERY. THEY WEREN'T VERY EXPENSIVE. SO HE REALLY WAS WELL UNDER A THRESHOLD AND WE WERE JUST ABLE TO BRING THEM IN AND THE ONE THAT WE USE FOR OUR EVALUATION LAST TIME. OK SO HOW DO YOU ENSURE THAT THE CONSULTANT IS WORKING INDEPENDENTLY AND. WHEN THERE THE MOMENT.

WELL WE LOOK AT THE RECORD WE LOOK AT THE REFERENCES AND WE WILL TALK TO OTHER OTHER COMMUNITIES OR INDIVIDUALS THAT TO USE THEIR SERVICES TO SEE IF THEY HAD ANY BIAS IN THE MANNER IN WHICH THEY PERFORM THEIR WORK. AND IF WE WOULD SEE THAT TYPE OF TREND OR OCCURRING WE WOULD PROBABLY NOT WORK WITH THAT CONSULTANT. OK. NO FURTHER QUESTIONS HERE. OK. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. AT THE TIME WHEN I CALLED I NEED EMOTION A SECOND TO HAVE THIS ITEM BESIDE IF I MOVED. I THOUGHT WE DID TOO BUT. THAT WAS WHEN I HEARD A COMMISSION INSIDE ITEM.
