AND I DO SEE VICE MAYOR BOLTON AND HE HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED AS IN ATTENDANCE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WELCOME.

[1. PROCEDURES FOR VIRTUAL MEETINGS]

THIS IS A DIFFERENT MEETING THAN WHAT WE'VE HAD BEFORE.

I APPRECIATE THAT YOU'RE ALL IN ATTENDANCE FOR OUR FIRST VIRTUAL MEETING.

AND BEFORE WE GO ON, WE WANT TO DO SOME THINGS THAT ARE TO PUT THIS TECHNICAL MEETING PROPERLY ON THE RECORD.

SO FOR THE MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WILL BE WATCHING AND BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE.

BEFORE WE PROCEED, I WANT YOU TO KNOW YOU CAN EMAIL QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS TO CITY CLERK AT TAMRAT, DAWG, AND YOU CAN PROVIDE YOUR QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS TO THE CITY OFFICIAL OR THROUGH THE CITY OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE.

AND OUR TELEPHONE LINE IS OPEN UP BY LOGGING IN YOUR REQUEST AT W W W TAMARAC DOT ORG BACKSLASH SIGN UP.

STAFF WILL BE MONITORING ALL THREE PLATFORMS THROUGHOUT THE MEETING.

SO, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE APPRECIATE THAT YOU WILL BEAR WITH US AS WE GO THROUGH.

THIS IS OUR FIRST TIME AND I'M NOW GOING TO ASK FOR OUR CITY ATTORNEY TO PLEASE.

READ INTO THE RECORD THE FIRST ITEM OF BUSINESS SO WE CAN DISCUSS PROCEDURES FOR VIRTUAL MEETINGS. THANK YOU.

OH, FORGIVE ME, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I WANT AND I MS. THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE. I APOLOGIZE IF EVERYONE WILL PLEASE STAND AT THIS MOMENT.

WE HAVE THE FLAG BEHIND ME AND OUR VICE MAYOR WILL LEAD US IN THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE.

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE, ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND TO THE REPUBLIC REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION, ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR.

MY APOLOGIES AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

ALL RIGHT. AS I SAID, WELL, BUMPS AND BRUISES A LITTLE BIT AS WE GO THROUGH THIS.

AND NOW CITY ATTORNEY, WILL YOU PLEASE READ INTO THE RECORD THE DISCUSSION SO WE CAN HAVE A MOTION TO ADOPT A VIRTUAL MEETING ORDER? THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR. CAN YOU HEAR ME, MADAM COMMISSIONERS? EVERYONE CAN. MADAM CLERK, YOU CAN HEAR ME AS WELL.

YES, I GUESS, OK, ALLOW ME TO ELABORATE BRIEFLY, BUT ON THE RECORD, MADAM MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS IN THE BACK UP, THERE'S A MEMORANDUM FROM OUR OFFICE DATED APRIL THE 8TH, AS WELL AS A PROPOSED ORDER REGARDING WHAT'S CALLED CONDITION MEETING PROCEDURES AND REFERENCE SPECIFICALLY AS CAN THE COMMUNICATIONS MEDIA TECHNOLOGY, BETTER KNOWN AS CMT.

FOR THE RECORD, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, ON THE DATE OF MARCH THE 20TH, GOVERNOR RONJA SANTOS ENTERED AN ORDER NUMBER TWENTY TO SIXTY NINE, WHICH IS IN THE BACK UP TODAY IN THE HARD AGENDA AND IN THE PRINTED AGENDA AND IN THE INTERNET AGENDA, WHICH SPECIFICALLY WAIVES THE REQUIREMENT OF A OF A PHYSICAL QUORUM TO ATTEND PUBLIC MEETINGS OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT BODIES. THE CITY COMMISSION IS IN FACT A LOCAL GOVERNMENT BODY UNDER STATE LAW. TO THE EXTENT THAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL THE DAY BEFORE ISSUED AN OPINION WHICH DISALLOWED FOR VIRTUAL MEETINGS, GOVERNOR SANTOS, SPECIFICALLY BY ORDER, OPENED THE DOOR FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT BODIES, INCLUDING SPECIAL DISTRICTS AND OTHER ENTITIES OF STATE GOVERNMENT AND CITY AND COUNTY GOVERNMENT, TO CONDUCT MEETINGS HAVING A VIRTUAL QUORUM. SO TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY IN WHICH THIS CITY COMMISSION HAS ELECTED TO IMPLEMENT A TWENTY TWO HOUR SIXTY NINE IN THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURES.

IN THE BACK UP, WE MAKE SOME FINDINGS SPECIFIC TO THIS ISSUE IN THIS MATTER AND ALLOW ME TO READ INTO THE RECORD FOR NOT JUST THE MAYOR AND CONDITION, BUT ALSO FOR THE PUBLIC AS TO WHAT THE REQUIREMENTS ARE AND WHAT THE RULES OF THE ROAD WILL BE CONSISTENT WITH WHAT'S CALLED COMMUNICATIONS MEDIA TECHNOLOGY.

NO ONE NOTICEABLE QUOTE, VIRTUAL MEETINGS OF THE CITY COMMISSION SHALL BE PREPARED AND POSTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION ONE TWENTY POINT FIFTY FOUR, SUBSECTION FIVE B TWO OF THE FLORIDA STATUTES, AS WELL AS CHAPTER TWENTY EIGHT, DASH ONE ZERO NINE AT WHAT'S

[00:05:03]

CALLED THE FLORIDA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE, ALONG WITH THE CITY'S CODE OF ORDINANCES AND OTHER APPLICABLE LOCAL AND STATE LAW.

FOR THE PURPOSE OF DISCUSSION, THE CITY CLERK, ALONG WITH THE CITY ADMINISTRATION, HAVE PROPERLY AND APPROPRIATELY POSTED THIS MEETING IN THE APPROPRIATE LOCATIONS AS WELL AS ON THE INTERNET, CONSISTENT WITH CHAPTER ONE TWENTY AND CHAPTER TWENTY EIGHT.

DASH ONE ZERO NINE.

NUMBER TWO. MEMBERS OF THE CITY COMMISSION AND THE CITY STAFF MAY ATTEND MEETINGS REMOTELY UTILIZING WHAT'S CALLED CMT, THE CITY'S I.T.

DEPARTMENT LED BY LIVE IN SUZHOU SHELLOW TO ENSURE THAT ALL MEMBERS OF THE CITY COMMISSION AND NECESSARY CITY STAFF, AS DETERMINED BY THE CITY MANAGER, HAVE ACCESS TO THE CITY COMMISSION MEETING.

PURSUANT TO THIS ORDER, A PHYSICAL QUORUM OF THE CITY COMMISSION IS NOT LEGALLY REQUIRED TO HOLD A MEETING AND TO CONDUCT OFFICIAL BUSINESS.

AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, IN THE EVENT THAT A PHYSICAL QUORUM IS NOT PRESENT, A VIRTUAL QUORUM SHALL BE REQUIRED IN ORDER TO HOLD A MEETING AND TO CONDUCT OFFICIAL BUSINESS.

MOMENTS AGO, MADAM MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS, THE CLERK TOOK THE ROLE.

THE MAYOR I KNOW, IS IN THE BUILDING.

I THINK THE VICE MAYOR MAY BE HERE.

OTHERS ARE IN THE BUILDING OR IN OTHER LOCATIONS FOR THE PURPOSES OF LEGAL ACTION TO BE TAKEN. TODAY, YOU HAVE WHAT'S CALLED A VIRTUAL QUORUM CONSISTENT WITH THE GOVERNOR'S ORDER. NUMBER THREE, CITY HALL, AT THE DISCRETION OF THE CITY MANAGER, MAY BE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC. IN FACT, IT IS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC.

IN THE EVENT THAT THE CITY HALL IS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC, THE PUBLIC SHALL NOT BE PERMITTED, PERMITTED TO PHYSICALLY ATTEND MEETINGS OF THE CITY COMMISSION.

THIS RESTRICTION IS INTENDED TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE WITH THE CDC RECOMMENDATION AND GUIDELINES. BUT TO AVOID GATHERINGS OF TEN OR MORE PEOPLE IN THE SAME LOCATION, THE DOOR IS LOCKED. THE CHAMBERS ARE NOT OCCUPIED BY THE PUBLIC.

THE ONLY PERSON IN THE CHAMBERS IS OUR I.T.

DIRECTOR, LEVENT NO.

FOR ANY MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC WISHING TO COMMENT PUBLICLY ON ANY MATTER, INCLUDING ON ITEMS ON THE AGENDA, THEY SUBMIT THEIR COMMENTS BY EMAIL TO THE CITY CLERK AT THE EMAIL ADDRESS CITED BY THE MAYOR.

ALL COMMENTS SUBMITTED BY EMAIL THAT HAVE READ ORALLY OR THREE MINUTES OR LESS SHALL BE READ INTO THE RECORD. ALL COMMENTS FROM THAT ABOUT EMAIL SHALL BE MADE A PART OF THE PUBLIC RECORD. AND THIS MEETING FROM BEGINNING TO END IS IN FACT BEING RECORDED.

THERE ARE NO OFF OFF SITE OR OFFLINE CONVERSATIONS.

PUBLIC COMMENTS MAY ALSO BE SUBMITTED ONLINE DURING THE MEETINGS THROUGH FACEBOOK LIVE, THE CITY'S FACEBOOK LIVE.

MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC MAY ALSO REGISTER ONLINE WITH THE EMAIL ADDRESS OFFERED UP IN THE NOTICE LEGALLY POSTED BEFORE THE MEETING.

INDIVIDUALS WHO REGISTER WILL BE CONTACTED BY THE BY TELEPHONE AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME DURING THE MEETING TO OFFER THEIR PUBLIC COMMENTS.

IF ANY MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC REQUIRES ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE CITY COMMISSION MEETING OR HAS ANY QUESTIONS, THEY WILL HAVE ASKED THOSE QUESTIONS PRIOR TO TODAY AND HAVE BEEN LOGGED WITH THE CITY CLERK IN THE APPROPRIATE FASHION.

NUMBER FIVE, ALL ACTION OF THE CITY COMMISSION SHALL BE TAKEN BY A ROLL-CALL VOTE.

THERE CAN BE NO VOICE VOTES BECAUSE FOR THE RECORD, THIS IS A VIRTUAL MEETING.

AND TO THE EXTENT THAT PEOPLE CANNOT SEE ALL OF THAT, WHICH IS HAPPENING AS MUCH AS THEY THEY MAY TRY TO, THE MAYOR WILL CALL FOR A ROLL CALL ON EACH ITEM AND THE CLERK WILL READ THE ROLE ACCORDINGLY.

NUMBER SIX, CRITICALLY IMPORTANT AS WELL.

IF AT ANY POINT DURING THE CITY COMMISSION MEETING THE TECHNOLOGY FAILS OR IF THE TECHNOLOGY IS INSUFFICIENT.

TO PERMIT ALL INTERESTED MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC TO ATTEND THE CITY COMMISSION MEETING SHALL CEASE IMMEDIATELY AND SOCIAL PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN RESOLVED.

THE KEY FACTOR IN THIS PROPOSED ORDER, WHICH HAD ASKED THAT THE MAYOR AND COMMISSION ADOPT BY MOTION ON THE RECORD, PROVIDES THE PUBLIC WITH ACCESS TO THE MEETING, NOT JUST ACCESS TO THE DOCUMENTS, NOT ACCESS JUST TO THE INFORMATION, BUT TO THE MEETING ITSELF.

THIS CITY HAS MADE EVERY TECHNOLOGICAL PLATFORM OPTION AVAILABLE TO MAKE THE PUBLIC AWARE AND TO HAVE THE PUBLIC MAKE PROVIDE ACCESS TO THE MEETING THROUGH VARIOUS AND SUNDRY MEANS, INCLUDING THE STREAMING VIDEO, INCLUDING LOG ONS WITH FACEBOOK, ETC., ALL OF WHICH ARE CONSISTENT WITH CHAPTER ONE, 20 OF THE FLORIDA STATUTES.

THESE RULES MAY SEEM RIGID, BUT THEY'RE ALSO WITHIN THE BOX OF INFORMATION THAT'S ALLOWED UNDER THE GOVERNOR'S ORDER. TWENTY TO SIXTY NINE CONSIST OF A CHAPTER ONE CONSISTENT WITH CHAPTER TWENTY EIGHT ONE OF NINE OF FLORIDA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE AND WILL BE A GUIDEPOST FOR YOU TO FOLLOW ONCE ADOPTED BY MOTION AMERICANS.

WE APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE.

THIS IS THIS IS RELATIVELY NEW TECHNOLOGY.

THE PUBLIC'S ACCESS IS ALSO DIFFERENTLY APPROACHED IN THIS DISCUSSION.

BUT GIVEN THE PREVIOUS TECHNICAL REVIEWS BY THE COMMISSION, JUST A TECHNICAL CHECK, THE RECORD, EVERYONE CAN SEE EACH OTHER, EVERYONE CAN HEAR EACH OTHER, ACCESS TO THE PUBLIC IS PROVIDED. I WOULD ASK MEN THEIR INFORMATION AT THIS TIME, ABSENT ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS THROUGH THE CHAIR.

THEY SHOULD ADOPT THIS ORDER BY MOTION AND BY VOICE, VOICE VOTE.

AND I WILL STAND DOWN. THANK YOU, MADAM COMMISSIONER.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AT THIS TIME, I'D LIKE A MOTION AND A SECOND TO SAY THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND AT THIS TIME I'M ALSO NOT SEEING ANY REQUEST FOR COMMENTS FROM MY COLLEAGUES.

SO I AM GOING TO ASK THE CITY CLERK TO PLEASE CALL THE ROLL.

[00:10:05]

MAYOR BOLTON. YES.

COMMISSIONER POLACCO.

YES. MR. FISHMAN. YES AND YES.

PLEASE NOTE THE MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY FOUR TO ZERO.

THANK YOU. MOVING ALONG NOW, WE'RE GOING TO GO TO COMMISSIONER REPORTS, VICE MAYOR

[a. Vice Mayor Bolton]

BOLTON, GOOD MORNING AND THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR.

I JUST WANT TO REASSURE OUR RESIDENTS THAT WE ARE WORKING EXTREMELY HARD FOR THEM.

AND WE KNOW THAT THESE ARE TRYING TIMES COVID-19, YOU KNOW, HAS HIT MOST OF SOME OF OUR RESIDENTS VERY HARD, FINANCIALLY AND OTHERWISE.

EVEN THOUGH WE MAY HAVE JUST A FEW CASES HERE IN TAMARACK, YOU KNOW, THE FINANCIAL IMPACTS WILL BE LASTING OVER TIME.

AND I JUST WANT TO REASSURE OUR RESIDENTS.

I WANT THEM TO KNOW THAT WE ARE WORKING FOR THEM AND WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER.

OVER THE WEEKEND, I WENT TO SOME OF OUR EASTERN COMMUNITIES AND HANDED OUT HOT MEALS TO THEM IN RECOGNITION, OF COURSE, OF OUR KEEPING IN LINE.

OF COURSE, WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING.

[00:15:04]

THEY WERE PLEASED WE HANDED OUT OVER TWO HUNDRED MEALS THAT THE RESIDENTS WERE OVERJOYED WITH THE JUST THE COMPASSION THAT WE SHOWED.

WE'RE ALSO DELIVERING MASKS TO RESIDENTS.

SO WE STARTED THIS INITIATIVE JUST A FEW DAYS AGO AND ALREADY HAVE DISTRIBUTED OVER ONE THOUSAND MASKS.

AND THIS WAS NOT JUST IN MY DISTRICT, BUT THIS IS A CITY WIDE.

AND A LOT OF THE MASKS ARE BEING DISTRIBUTED TO KINGS POINT RESIDENTS, WESTWOOD RESIDENTS AND A LOT OF RESIDENTS IN DISTRICT FOUR.

AND SO THIS IS A GREAT INITIATIVE THE RESIDENTS ARE LOOKING AT.

AND, YOU KNOW, MY CAP WAS A THOUSAND MILES AND, YOU KNOW, TO SEE THE AMOUNT OF RESIDENTS WHO ACTUALLY NEED IT, LOTS OF RESIDENTS ARE SAYING THAT THEY CANNOT FIND MASKS ANYWHERE.

THEY WANT TO COMPLY WITH ROBERT COUNTY'S ORDER TO WEAR MASKS WHEN CONDUCTING ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES, BUT THEY JUST CAN'T FIND IT.

SO IF SOME PEOPLE ARE LAID OFF OR FURLOUGHED, THEY JUST CANNOT AFFORD IT.

SO I HAVE LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN TO, OF COURSE, RAISE MONEY TO TO BUY MORE MASKS AND DISTRIBUTE THEM TO MY RESIDENTS.

SO I'M PICKING UP ANOTHER TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY MASKS TODAY RIGHT AFTER THIS MEETING, DISTRIBUTING THOSE.

I WAS BUYING FABRIC LATE LAST NIGHT TO MAKE ANOTHER THREE HUNDRED MILES TO A SEAMSTRESS, AND MY COMMUNITY IS HELPING ME WITH THAT.

SO I LITERALLY HAVE ANOTHER ONE THOUSAND MASKS ON THE WAY.

AND SO WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A CITY HALL DISTRIBUTION HERE WITH THOSE MASKS.

WE HAVE PEOPLE COMING YESTERDAY DRIVING UP, RECEIVING THEIR MASKS AND THAT SORT OF STUFF.

AND I STILL HAVE A FEW PEOPLE TO REACH OUT TO.

BUT THIS IS A GREAT THING AND THIS REALLY SHOWS HOW RESILIENT AND TOUGH WE ARE.

THIS IS A KIND OF COMMISSION WE NEED, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE WHO CAN GO OUT IN THE TRENCHES AND CHECK ON OUR RESIDENTS, NOT ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO SIT IN THE OFFICE 24 HOURS A DAY.

THIS IS WHAT OUR CITY NEEDS.

OUR RESIDENTS NEED TO SEE THAT WE'RE OUT THERE AND WE ARE CARING FOR THEM.

AND SO I'M VERY, VERY HAPPY AND ARE VERY, VERY PLEASED THAT I WAS ABLE TO DO THAT.

LOTS OF MEETINGS ARE CANCELED.

WE CAN'T GO TO MEETINGS, BUT THE USE OF TECHNOLOGY, AGAIN, IS SHOWING UP.

I HAD A MEETING WITH A RESIDENT IN MY COMMUNITY IN MENLO PARK.

HE HAD SOME CONCERNS FOR HIS COMMUNITY.

AND LET ME TELL YOU, WE SKYPE.

WE ARE WE. THEY STARTED ACTUALLY AND, YOU KNOW, TECHNOLOGY IS REALLY SHOWING US THAT WE CAN MAKE IT THROUGH THROUGH DIFFICULT TIMES, SO THAT THAT HAS BEEN GREAT.

SO I'D BE REMISS TO SAY THAT OUR COMMISSIONER GELLIN HAS JOINED THE FIGHT WITH ME TO DELIVER MASK'S.

HE IS A FULL FLEDGED NOW INVOLVED, AND HE IS TRYING HIS BEST TO MAKE SURE THAT HIS RESIDENTS GET MASKS AS WELL.

HE WAS IN THE WOODLANDS AND FAIR HAVEN SOUTHERN YESTERDAY DELIVERING MASS.

SUCH AN AWESOME GUY.

AND I'M GRATEFUL THAT HE'S ON THE COMMISSION WITH US TO ALL OF THOSE ALL OF OUR RESIDENTS WHO CELEBRATED EASTER AND PASSOVER.

I WANT TO SAY HAPPY EASTER TO YOU AND HAPPY PASSOVER.

OF COURSE, WE DID NOT GET TO SAY THAT BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY OF THE TIMES THAT WE'RE LIVING IN, AS ALWAYS, AND WITH THIS, PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS ABLE TO REACH ME.

MY CELLPHONE NUMBER IS NINE FIVE FOUR TWO SEVEN FIVE THREE EIGHT FIVE ZERO.

[00:20:06]

THAT'S NINE FIVE FOUR TWO SEVEN FIVE THREE EIGHT FIVE ZERO.

I AM LEASABLE. TWENTY FOUR HOURS A DAY, SIX DAYS A WEEK.

I GIVE MY MY WIFE SUNDAYS SO RESIDENTS CAN REACH OUT TO ME ON MY CELL PHONE AND THEY CAN GO INTO MY FACEBOOK PAGE AND SEE SOME OF THE MANY THINGS THAT I'VE BEEN DOING IN THE CITY. ALL THE THINGS THAT I'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT AS WELL ARE POSTED ON MY FACEBOOK PAGE.

ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS SEARCH COMMISSIONER MAHLUM BOLTON.

AND FINALLY, MADAM CHAIR, YESTERDAY I SHOWED OFF A VIDEO.

I SHOWED A VIDEO AND SHOWED OFF A PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATE THAT I RECEIVED FROM FLORIDA ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY AND UNIVERSITY.

THEY OFFERED A COURSE IN HOSPITALITY AND TOURISM MANAGEMENT TO EVERYBODY, PRETTY MUCH A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT THAT ARE AT HOME DUE TO CORONAVIRUS.

THIS COURSE WAS ONLINE.

AND SO THEY'RE ROLLING OUT OUR OTHER ONLINE COURSES.

OUR RESIDENTS CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT.

I DIRECTED THE CERTIFICATE BEHIND ME.

THIS IS AN AWESOME PROGRAM.

SHOUT OUT TO OUR FLORIDA ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY FOR THEIR EFFORTS DURING THE FLORIDA VIRUS THAT I AM SURE.

THANK YOU AND CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR CERTIFICATE.

AND WE WILL NOW MOVE TO COMMISSIONER FRESHMAN.

[c. Commissioner Fishman]

GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE.

I'M NOT GOING TO GO INTO A LOT OF WHAT I'VE BEEN DOING, BUT I DO WANT TO BRING ATTENTION TO AN ISSUE THAT IS NOT GETTING A LOT OF ATTENTION YET, BUT PROBABLY WILL AS THE STAY AT HOME ORDER CONTINUES AND THAT THE PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT SAFE IN THEIR HOMES AND I'M TALKING ABOUT VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE THAT ARE STUCK AT HOME WITH THEIR ABUSERS AND MAY OR MAY NOT BE AWARE THAT THERE STILL IS HELP FOR THEM THROUGH THE NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOTLINE, WHICH IS ONE 800 SEVEN NINE NINE SEVEN TWO THREE THREE, YOU ARE NOT STUCK AT HOME WITH YOUR ABUSER IF YOU ARE BEING ABUSED PHYSICALLY OR MENTALLY, SEXUALLY.

PLEASE REACH OUT.

THERE IS HELP EVEN DURING THIS CORONAVIRUS TIME.

AND IF YOU ARE NOT STUCK AT HOME, SO PLEASE CALL.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR.

[d. Commissioner Placko]

PLAKA. GOOD MORNING.

GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE. I WOULD LIKE TO START OUT BY THANKING ALL MY COLLEAGUES AND STAFF FOR EVERYTHING EVERYONE IS DOING.

THIS IS SOMETHING TOTALLY UNKNOWN TO ALL OF US.

AND EVERYONE IS DOING A GREAT JOB IN THEIR OWN WAY, IN THEIR OWN AVENUES.

AND I JUST LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE.

OUR RESIDENTS SEE IT, OUR RESIDENTS SEE WHAT'S GOING ON AND WHAT'S HAPPENING.

I HAVE TAKEN TO WALKING EVERY DAY IN DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES AT A SAFE DISTANCE.

THIS DOES ALLOW ME TO ACTUALLY SEE THE RESIDENTS FROM ACROSS THE STREET.

WE CAN CHAT, THEY CAN ASK ME QUESTIONS, THEY CAN TALK ABOUT WHATEVER THEY NEED TO TALK ABOUT. BUT I ALWAYS LIKE THAT ONE ON ONE.

AND UNFORTUNATELY, NOW WE'RE NOT ABLE TO DO THAT AS MUCH AS WE HAVE.

AND SO THIS ALLOWS ME TO DO IT.

AND ALL THE DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES PEOPLE ARE HOLDING UP.

WELL, CONSIDERING AND I CANNOT THANK OUR RESIDENTS ENOUGH FOR STAYING SAFE AND STAYING IN. THAT'S REALLY WHAT IT'S GOING TO TAKE.

AND I KNOW IT'S DIFFICULT AND I KNOW THERE'S A LOT OF BOREDOM GOING ON.

I KNOW FIRSTHAND I HAVE PRETTY MUCH CONFINED MY MOTHER TO HER HOUSE.

SHE IS NOT ALLOWED TO GO OUT.

SO I'M TAKING CARE OF PROVISIONS, WHATEVER SHE NEEDS.

I KNOW PEOPLE ARE BORED, BUT BOREDOM IS BETTER THAN SICKNESS.

SO I WILL ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO PLEASE CONTINUE TO STAY HOME AND STAY SAFE.

YOU CERTAINLY KNOW HOW TO CONTACT ME.

YOU CAN CONTACT ANY OF US.

BUT WHAT A GREAT JOB I HAVE WITH MY SISTER, THESE UNKNOWN CIRCUMSTANCES.

SO THANK YOU ALL AND PLEASE STAY SAFE.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER.

[e. Mayor Gomez]

SO I'M JUST GOING TO SAY THIS, I HAVE BEEN VERY PROUD TO BE THE MAYOR OF THIS CITY AND AS

[00:25:05]

I JUST SAID, I AM VERY PROUD OF EVERYBODY, PROUD OF OUR EXECUTIVE TEAM, OUR CITY EMPLOYEES WHO ARE DOING THEIR JOBS, ADJUSTING TO THE CHANGES THAT WE'VE HAD TO DO.

BUT THEY HAVE A SMILE ON THEIR FACE AND THEY'RE DOING THINGS TO KEEP OUR CITY SAFE.

AND THE SMART PLANNING BY OUR CITY MANAGER AND OUR CITY TEAM BY TAKING CARE OF CLEANING THE BUILDINGS OUT RIGHT NOW WHILE PEOPLE ARE NOT IN THEM PRESSURE, WASHING THE STREETS, KEEPING THINGS CLEAN FOR PEOPLE.

OF COURSE, LOVE OUR FIRST RESPONDERS AND VSO AND FIRE RESCUE.

THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU'RE DOING.

AND OUR HEALTH CARE WORKERS AND OUR ESSENTIAL WORKERS, WE THINK EVERYBODY WHO IS OUT THERE MAKING SURE THAT THERE'S SOME NORMALCY TO OUR LIVES, WHICH INCLUDES OUR SMALL BUSINESSES OR BIG BUSINESSES, ANY OF OUR BUSINESSES THAT ARE STAYING OPEN AND TRYING TO HELP US WITH PROPER PRECAUTIONS IN THERE SO OUR RESIDENTS CAN GO OUT BACK HOME AND BE SAFE. AND THEN LAST BUT NOT LEAST, I AM SO PROUD OF OUR RESIDENTS WHO ARE TAKING THIS SERIOUSLY. WE'RE DOING GREAT.

AND THE NUMBERS REFLECT THAT.

I KNOW PEOPLE ARE GOING A LITTLE BIT STIR CRAZY, BUT DO GO OUTSIDE, TAKE A WALK AROUND YOUR BLOCK. IT'S BEEN A PLEASURE TO WALK THE COMMUNITIES AS WELL AND TALK WITH PEOPLE.

I HAD A DRIVEWAY MEETING WITH A RESIDENTS.

HE SAT SIX FEET APART FROM ME.

WE BOTH HAD OUR MASKS THERE AND WE TALKED ABOUT THINGS.

IT WAS IT'S A DIFFERENT WORLD, BUT IT'S THE WAY TO REACH OUT AND CONNECT.

AND ON THE MORE BUSINESS SIDE OF IT ALL, I'VE HAD WEEKLY MEETINGS THAT CONTINUE ON WITH THE WHITE HOUSE COVID-19 PRESS BRIEFING, BLOOMBERG HARVARD LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE, ALONG WITH THE NATIONAL LEAGUE OF CITIES, U.S.

CONFERENCE OF MAYORS, THE FLORIDA LEAGUE OF CITIES, FLORIDA DIVISION OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT, THE AMERICAN BUSINESS CHAMBER, THE I'VE HAD A COUPLE WITH OUR TAMARACK NREL BUSINESS CHAMBER. SO I THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. MASON, PETER MASON, FOR HAVING SOME OF OUR CHAMBER MEETINGS STILL GO ONLINE SO WE CAN CONNECT. I AM VERY PROUD OF OUR TOWN COUNCIL FOR THEM CONTINUING TO HAVE THEIR MEETINGS AND BEYOND ZOOME AND KEEP UP THEIR ENERGY AND KNOW THAT THIS IS A TEMPORARY NEW NORM.

AND WE START TO MEET APPRECIATE THE BUSINESS COVID-19 TASK FORCE.

I'VE HAD THE PLEASURE OF BEING ON SEVERAL CALLS WITH SENATOR RUBIO.

SENATOR SCOTT AND OUR REPRESENTATIVES HAVE REACHED OUT TO US.

I APPRECIATE SENATOR THURSTON, SENATOR, REPRESENTATIVE FOR REPRESENTATIVE DALY, REPRESENTATIVE PATRICIA WILLIAMS. THEY'RE CALLING AND THEY'RE TRYING TO MAKE SURE WE'RE OK SEEING WHAT WE NEED, BEEN IN TOUCH WITH OUR RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS AND SEE HOW THEY'RE DOING, WHAT THEY NEED, HOW THEIR PEOPLE ARE DOING, WHICH OUR RESIDENTS AS WELL, AND COMMUNICATING WITH ALL OF OUR ASSOCIATIONS AS BEST AS POSSIBLE AND A LOT OF CALLS WITH OUR RESIDENTS.

AND I AS I SAID IN THE BEGINNING, VERY PROUD OF EVERYBODY IS TAKING THIS SO SERIOUSLY AND DOING A REALLY GOOD JOB.

AND MENTAL HEALTH IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.

SO, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, PLEASE DO GO OUT FOR YOUR LITTLE WALK, GO ON YOUR VERANDA OR YOUR CAT WALK. AND AS I'VE SAID BEFORE, CALL A FRIEND, TELL SOMEBODY YOU HAVE SPOKEN TO THE WALL. DON'T TEXT THEM, DON'T EMAIL THEM, CALL THEM.

WE'D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR VOICE.

AS WE'VE ALL MENTIONED, WE ARE CONCERNED WITH THE NEXT STEPS WE ARE.

I DON'T THINK WE'VE JUST YET, BUT THE NUMBERS ARE GOOD AND BUT IT HAS TO BE DATA DRIVEN BEFORE WE MOVE FORWARD AND OPEN UP THE CITY.

I KNOW OUR CITY MANAGER AND OUR EXECUTIVE TEAM ARE ON DAILY CALLS AND THEY'VE GOT MORE CALLS THAN THEY PROBABLY KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH.

AND THEY'RE FIGURING OUT WHAT WE NEED TO DO BUDGET WISE.

AND I WILL LEAVE THAT FOR CITY MANAGERS REPORT.

I DO KNOW THAT ON APRIL 2ND, THE CITY WAS AWARDED MORE KGPE FUNDS TO THE KAZAKS.

AND SO WE'LL BE ABLE TO HELP MORE PEOPLE, WHICH IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WAS STARTING TO BE WE WERE STARTING TO BE ADVISE ON HOW IT'S GOING TO ROLL OUT YESTERDAY AND KNOW THE CITY MANAGER WILL GIVE MORE DETAILS WERE PROBABLY THROUGH MS. CALLAWAY. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT.

AS WE KNOW WHERE WE HAVE TO FOOD DISTRIBUTIONS IN THE CITY AND HOPING THAT WE WILL HAVE MORE IN THE FUTURE.

I HAD THE PLEASURE OF BEING OUT THERE AT THE KOREAN CHURCH ON SATURDAY AND FIVE HUNDRED AND THIRTY CARS, APPROXIMATELY FIVE HUNDRED THIRTY CARS, HAD TRUNKS THAT WENT AWAY WITH FOOD FILLED IN THEM.

AND IT WAS.

REWARDING AND IT'S DIFFICULT BECAUSE SO MANY PEOPLE ARE IN NEED OF HELP, BUT I REMAIN HOPEFUL THAT THIS NEXT STIMULUS BILL THAT PASSED THE SENATE YESTERDAY WILL PASS THE HOUSE TOMORROW AND BE ABLE TO PUT MORE MONEY INTO HELPING THE SMALL BUSINESSES AND HELPING WITH THE UNEMPLOYMENT. WE'RE ALL A CYCLE.

WE'RE ALL TOGETHER. WE'RE ALL A COG.

WE ALL WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE OUR COUNTRY RUN AND OUR CITY RUN.

SO I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO HOPEFULLY THAT INFUSION HELPING OUT SOON.

AND WE'RE ALL NEW AT THIS.

SO EVERY STEP OF US ARE HAVING WHETHER OUR GOVERNMENT, STATE GOVERNMENT, FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, WE'RE ALL LEARNING HOW TO DO SOME OF THIS TOGETHER.

AS ONE OF THE MONSTERS THAT'S BEEN SAID ON MANY OF THESE CALLS, WE ARE FEDERALLY FUNDED,

[00:30:06]

STATE MANDATED, LOCALLY EXECUTED.

AND SOMETIMES WHEN WE LOCALLY EXECUTE, WE DON'T HAVE ALL OF THAT THAT WE NEED IN ORDER TO DO IT SMOOTHLY. BUT WE'RE WORKING THROUGH IT.

AND I BELIEVE EVERYONE'S DOING A REALLY GREAT JOB.

AND I'D BE REMISS IF I DIDN'T SAY THAT I'VE HAD NUMEROUS CALLS AND EMAILS WITH I CALL US THE THIRTY ONE FLAVORS OF MAYORS AND OUR COUNTY COMMISSIONER, ALL THE MAYORS OF THE COUNTY, OTHER CITIES IN BROWARD COUNTY AND THE MAYOR OF BROWARD COUNTY, AN ADMINISTRATION. WE'VE HAD NUMEROUS CALLS.

AND THE MOST RECENT ONE HAS BEEN WHAT TO DO TO HAVE TO OPEN UP RESPONSIBLY WHEN WE DO OPEN UP AND WE'RE TRYING TO DO A QUAD COUNTY EFFORT, PALM BEACH, BROWARD, MIAMI-DADE AND MONROE, BECAUSE WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WHEN WE OPEN UP, WE OPEN UP WISELY BECAUSE WE TRANSFER, WE TRAVEL, WE'RE TRANSIENT.

WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE NOT HAVING CROSS CONTAMINATION OR ANYTHING COME BACK AND WE'RE TRYING TO DO THINGS SMART AND DO THINGS IN A VERY RESPECTFUL WAY FOR EACH OF OUR COMMUNITIES, BECAUSE SOME OF OUR COMMUNITIES DON'T WE DON'T HAVE A BEACH PROBLEM, BUT WE DO HAVE GOLF COURSES THAT WANT TO OPEN UP.

WE HAVE POOLS THAT WE WANT TO OPEN UP.

WE HAVE THINGS THAT ARE SIMILAR AND DIFFERENT.

SO WE'RE WORKING TOGETHER TO TRY TO MAKE SURE IT ROLLS OUT IN A UNIFORM MANNER.

ON THE THANK YOU APPRECIATION ITEM, WE ARE STILL DOING CARDS.

I KNOW ORIGINALLY I SAID THE CARDS FOR APPRECIATION FOR OUR FIRST RESPONDERS.

FRONT LINE WARRIORS ARE ESSENTIAL WORKERS CVS, WALGREENS, PUBLIX, ALL OF OUR GROCERY STORES AND PHARMACIES AND RESTAURANTS.

BUT WE'RE JUST GOING TO KEEP GOING UNTIL THE ORDERS LIFTED.

WE'RE STILL MAKING CARDS AND STILL SENDING THEM OUT TO EVERYBODY.

AND WE GREATLY APPRECIATE EVERYTHING THAT YOU DO FOR US.

SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH ON THAT.

AND I WANT TO JUST END WITH RAMADAN STARTS TONIGHT.

AND FORGIVE ME IF I DON'T PRONOUNCE THIS PROPERLY.

RAMADAN BARBARIC TO ALL WHO CELEBRATE.

AND ON THAT NOTE, I WILL TURN THIS OVER TO OUR CITY ATTORNEY THAT CAME OUT OF MAYOR GOOD

[4. CITY ATTORNEY REPORT]

MORNING AMERICA EDITION. JUST ONE QUICK UPDATE.

I THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PATIENCE IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ORDER WHICH WAS APPROVED EARLIER BEGINNING AT THE MEETING AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MEETING.

I'M JUST ONE SIDE NOTE THAT I THINK IS WORTH NOTING.

THE GOVERNOR'S EXECUTIVE ORDER NUMBER TWENTY TWO THOUSAND SIXTY NINE HAS A HAS A TIME LIMITATION. IT WAS ADOPTED ON MARCH THE 20TH, BUT IT REVERTS BACK TO A PRIOR ORDER OF THE CAN OF THE GOVERNOR.

TWENTY DASH FIFTY TWO, WHICH WAS THE ULTIMATE STATEWIDE DECLARATION.

THE ORDER WITH REGARD TO VIRTUAL QUORUMS AT PUBLIC MEETINGS IS ONLY A 60 DAY ITEM.

IT RUNS TO BE THE NINTH FOIA.

WE HAVE REASON TO BELIEVE THAT GIVEN THE NATURE OF THE THINGS YOU JUST DESCRIBED, MADAM MAYOR AND THE COMMISSIONER BOLTEN AND THE VICE MAYOR AND COMMISSIONER FISHMAN DISCUSSED WITH REGARD TO WHERE WE ARE IN THE TIMELINE OF COVID-19 THAT THAT WILL WILL BE EXTENDED BY THE GOVERNOR. THE CONSEQUENCE OF WHICH IS, IS THAT CITY BUSINESS MUST BE CONDUCTED AND THERE ARE BIG OPENINGS. THERE ARE QUALIFICATIONS AND SELECTION COMMITTEES FOR VARIOUS CONSULTANTS AND FOR THE THEY PERFORM OR TO BE PERFORMED FOR THE CITY.

THERE'S ALSO PLANNING BOARD MEETINGS WHERE A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT OTHER SUBORDINATE BODY MEETINGS UNDER THE ORDER, WHICH THE COMMISSION HAS APPROVED AND CONSISTENT WITH THE STATUTES CITED IN THE ORDER THERE, IS PROVIDED TO THE CITY MANAGER, SPECIFICALLY DISCRETION, AS IT SAYS, SPECIFICALLY WITH REGARD TO THE ISSUE OF EXPANDING THE OPPORTUNITY FOR HAVING VIRTUAL MEETINGS UNDER THE STATUTE, UNDER THE ORDER TO SUPPORT THE BODIES OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

AND TO THAT END, WE RAISE THE BAR AND WE OPEN THAT DOOR.

WHETHER OR NOT THE TECHNOLOGY CAN BE MADE AVAILABLE TO BOTH THE MEMBERSHIP OF THOSE VARIOUS BOARDS AS WELL AS THE PUBLIC HAVING ACCESS TO THOSE BOARDS.

BUT IN IN THE FINDINGS PROVISION OF THE ORDER, IT SPECIFICALLY SAYS HEREBY ADOPTS THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURES FOR CITY COMMISSION MEETINGS AND OTHER PUBLIC MEETINGS OF THE CITY, AS MAY BE DETERMINED BY THE CITY MANAGER UTILIZING COMMUNICATIONS, MEDIA, TECHNOLOGY.

AND IN SHORT, WHAT THAT MEANS, MARY COMMISSIONERS, THAT THE PUBLIC'S WORK AND THE PUBLIC'S ASSIGNMENTS CANNOT BE KEPT CAST ASIDE.

THE REALITY IS COMING UP DURING THE MONTH OF MAY, WE'LL LOOK AT THE ISSUES, WE'LL LOOK AT THE MATTERS. THE MANAGER WILL CAREFULLY SCRUTINIZE WITH THE DIRECTOR AND WITH THE PROFESSIONAL STAFF WHAT MEETINGS CAN LITERALLY BE CONDUCTED IN THIS FASHION.

WE DO KNOW THE BIG OPENINGS, FOR EXAMPLE, ARE PUBLIC.

THE PUBLIC HAS A RIGHT. VENDORS HAVE A RIGHT OF ACCESS.

THE DOORS ARE, TECHNICALLY SPEAKING, LOCKED, THEY CAN'T GET INTO THE BUILDING WHEN YOU HAVE THE SELECTION QUALIFICATIONS COMMITTEE, ALTHOUGH THE INTERVIEWS ARE TYPICALLY BY STATUTE PRIVILEGED, THE CONVERSATIONS OF THE COMMITTEE ARE PUBLIC AND THE PUBLIC HAS A RIGHT OF ACCESS. AND EQUALLY AS SUCH, THE PLANNING BOARD AND OTHER SUBORDINATE BODIES HAVE THOSE KINDS OF ACCESS POINTS AS WELL.

I JUST WANTED THE RECORD TO REFLECT THAT.

THAT IS AN OPENING, AN OPEN DOOR LEGALLY UNDER THE STATUTE AND ALSO UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THE GOVERNOR'S ORDER. WE WILL KEEP YOU FULLY ADVISED AND POSTED AND TO MAKE SURE AND TO ENSURE THAT THE PUBLIC HAS A COMPLETE AND TRANSPARENT RIGHT OF ACCESS THROUGH THE PROCESS THAT WAS DESCRIBED AND FOR THAT PURPOSE WILL LEAVE OPEN THAT ISSUE FOR QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS IF THERE ARE ANY OTHERWISE.

THAT'S WHAT I HAVE IN MY REPORT THIS MORNING.

[00:35:02]

MARY, COMMISSIONER, THANK YOU FOR LISTENING AS ALWAYS TO MY PRESENTATION LITERALLY FROM OUR CITY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

WE'RE NOW GOING TO OUR CITY MANAGER'S REPORT, PLEASE.

[5. CITY MANAGER REPORT]

YES, THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR.

I HAVE A FAIRLY EXTENSIVE REPORT FOR YOU THIS MORNING THAT HAS BEEN FAIRLY WELL STREAMLINED. YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR FROM MOST OF OUR DEPARTMENT DIRECTORS THIS MORNING ABOUT THINGS THAT ARE GOING ON IN THE CITY WITHIN OUR ORGANIZATION AND SOME OF THE ISSUES THAT WE ARE DEALING WITH BEYOND JUST THE NATURE OF TRYING TO KEEP THE PUBLIC SAFE THROUGH THIS COVID-19 CRISIS.

YOU'RE GOING TO KEEP THE POWERPOINT.

OK, THANK YOU VERY MUCH OF THAT.

CAN I GET THE SECOND SLIDE, PLEASE? THANK YOU. SO FOR MY REPORT THIS MORNING, I JUST WOULD LIKE THE MAYOR AND THE COMMISSIONER TO KNOW THAT OUR MESSAGE REMAINS TO STAY THE SAME.

WE WANT PEOPLE TO STAY HOME.

WE WANT PEOPLE TO STAY SAFE.

WE ARE DOING EVERYTHING THAT WE CAN AT THIS POINT TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC AND TO PROTECT OUR EMPLOYEES AND TO PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY.

WE ARE MONITORING THE SITUATION AT HAND ON A ON A DAILY BASIS INTERNALLY.

AND WE ARE MONITORING ALMOST EVERY DAY ON A COUNTY WIDE BASIS WITH THE OTHER CITY MANAGERS, OTHER ELECTED OFFICIALS AND ELECTED OFFICIALS, APPOINTED OFFICIALS FROM BROWARD COUNTY. AS FAR AS THE PUBLIC IS CONCERNED, WE ARE DOING EVERYTHING THAT WE CAN TO INFORM THE PUBLIC AND TO HELP THEM FOLLOW THE APPROPRIATE CDC GUIDELINES.

THE EXECUTIVE ORDERS OUR OWN EMERGENCY ORDERS AND DOING OUR BEST TO KEEP FOLKS SAFE WITH THE PUBLIC. WE ARE ALSO DOING OUR BEST TO KEEP OUR EMPLOYEES SAFE SO THAT THEY CAN CONTINUE TO SERVE THE PUBLIC THROUGHOUT THIS CRISIS.

ONE OF THE MANY CHALLENGES THAT CITIES ARE FACING ALL ACROSS THE NATION RIGHT NOW IS THAT THEIR WORKFORCES ARE GETTING SICK.

AND WHEN THE WORKFORCES ARE GETTING SICK WITH THIS WITH THIS PANDEMIC, PEOPLE ARE OUT OF WORK FOR TWO WEEKS OR MORE, ESSENTIALLY, AS THEY GET SICK, RECOVER AND COME BACK TO WORK.

AND GIVEN THE LEAN SIZE OF OUR ORGANIZATION, IF WE LOSE TOO MANY PEOPLE, WE'RE GOING TO BE UNABLE TO SERVE THE PUBLIC.

SO WE'VE MADE SOME SIGNIFICANT MODIFICATIONS TO WORK SCHEDULES.

WE'VE SENT AS MANY PEOPLE TO WORK FROM HOME AS WE CAN.

WE'VE IMPLEMENTED SOME GREAT NEW TECHNOLOGY AND WE'RE HAVING SOME GREAT SUCCESS WITH TELECOMMUTING AT THIS POINT.

ALL OF THAT IS FOCUSED ON CONTINUING TO SERVE THE COMMUNITY AND TO CONTINUE TO KEEP THE OPERATIONS THAT ARE SO VITAL TO OUR COMMUNITY IN PLACE AND WORKING, AND YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR FROM THE DEPARTMENT DIRECTORS ABOUT THE INNOVATIVE THINGS THAT THEY'RE DOING IN THEIR OWN DEPARTMENTS TO KEEP THE BUSINESS OF THE CITY MOVING FORWARD THROUGHOUT THIS CRISIS. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I KNOW EVERYBODY'S INTERESTED IN IS THE FINANCIAL COMPONENT OF THIS CRISIS.

AND IT'S GOING TO BE SIGNIFICANT AND IT'S GOING TO BE SERIOUS AND IT WILL IMPACT US, I BELIEVE, FOR SEVERAL YEARS, IF NOT MORE.

WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO WORK THROUGH UNDERSTANDING WHAT THE FINANCIAL ASPECTS ARE GOING TO BE AND EXACTLY WHAT THE IMPACTS WILL BE IN THIS CURRENT BUDGET YEAR AND IN THE FUTURE FISCAL YEARS.

AND AND WE'LL BE REPORTING TO YOU SHORTLY ON THAT AS SOON AS WE HAVE WHAT WE BELIEVE IS GOOD INFORMATION TO SHARE.

I ALSO WANT TO WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THE COUNTY HAS APPLIED FOR APPROXIMATELY THREE HUNDRED AND FORTY ONE MILLION DOLLARS IN CARE'S ACT FUNDS.

AND THE CITY MANAGERS AND I KNOW THE CITY MAYORS ARE ALL UNITED AROUND THE FACT THAT THAT MONEY CERTAINLY NEEDS TO COME TO THE COUNTY BASED ON THE PROGRAM THAT'S IN PLACE, BUT IT ALSO NEEDS TO BE SHARED WITH THE CITIZENS.

AND SO WE'RE GOING TO BE CONTINUING TO ADVOCATE WITH THE COUNTY THAT THAT MONEY GETS SHARED TO HELP US ALL GET THROUGH THIS CRISIS FINANCIALLY KEEPING ALL OF THAT IN MIND.

OUR GOAL IS TO HELP OUR RESIDENTS AND OUR BUSINESSES GET BACK ON THEIR FEET AS SOON AS THIS PANDEMIC PASSES AND AS OUR STATE AND OUR COUNTY AND OUR CITY ECONOMIES REOPEN.

AND WITH THAT, I'M GOING TO ASK OUR FIRE CHIEF, PERCY SALES, TO TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING AS FAR AS EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT IS CONCERNED AND CRISIS

[00:40:02]

MANAGEMENT IS CONCERNED.

SO WITH THAT, I'LL GIVE THE FLOOR TO CHIEF SALES.

THANK YOU. CAN I GET THE NEXT LINE AND WHY HE'S DOING THAT? GOOD MORNING, MAYOR. GOOD MORNING, VICE MAYOR.

GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONERS. AND GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE ELSE THAT'S LISTENING.

AND I'LL START OUT I'LL START OUT WITH A BIT OF UPDATE DATA WISE IN TERMS OF WHAT THE IMPACT 19 IS IN BROWARD COUNTY AND BROWARD.

OVERALL, OUR CASES FOR POSITIVE COVID SIX FOUR THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY NINE.

WE HAVE 87 CASES IN TAMARACK AND FOR THE STATE THERE'S A TOTAL OF TWENTY SIX THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND SIXTY ONE POSITIVE CASES.

SO WE HAVE ACTIVATED THE EOC HERE IN TAMARACK AS AS THE MANAGER ALLUDED TO, WE HAVE AN INCIDENT MANAGEMENT TEAM, WHICH IS ALL THE DIRECTORS, AND WE'VE ADOPTED OUR OPERATIONS TO TO TAKE THEM TO RESPOND TO THIS INCIDENT AS BEST AS POSSIBLE.

RIGHT NOW WE'VE BEEN ACTIVATED AND ACTIVE FOR 41 DAYS AND GET LITVIN IF YOU CAN CHANGE TO THE NEXT SLIDE. APPRECIATE THAT.

ALL RIGHT, I MENTIONED THIS LAST TIME AT OUR INITIAL UPDATE ABOUT OUR INCIDENT OBJECTIVES, AND AS YOU KNOW, WE'RE STILL FOCUSING ON THESE OBJECTIVES, WHICH IS EDUCATION, PREVENTION, OUR RESPONSE.

WE WANT TO SLOW THE SPREAD AND LIMIT EXPOSURE RISK AND ALSO WORK ON RECOVERY IN THE DEPARTMENT, AS I MENTIONED PREVIOUSLY, AS ADAPTING THEIR RESPONSE AND OPERATION PROCEDURES TO FOCUS ON THESE OBJECTIVES THAT WE'RE ALL WORKING AS A UNIFIED TEAM TO BRING THIS INCIDENT UNDER UNDER CONTROL.

AND ALSO TO JUST SO YOU KNOW, THAT THAT OUR OUR EXECUTIVE TEAM, AS THE MAYOR ALLUDED TO, IS ONE BIG GROUP.

THERE'S A LOT OF DIFFERENT COMPONENTS, BUT WE'RE ALL WORKING TO FOCUS ON THESE SAME SIMILAR GOALS HERE TO IMPACT AND COVID-19 INCIDENT.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

IT MAY HAVE BEEN WOULD YOU ALLOW ME TO UPLOAD THE NEW VERSION OF THAT AND I CAN HEAR YOU VERY WELL, BUT HOW ABOUT WE TAKE A FIVE MINUTE BREAK? SOUNDS GOOD. ALL RIGHT, WE ARE IN WITNESSES, 10, 15.

WE'LL COME BACK AT 10, 20.

THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

WE ARE RESUMING THE MEETING WE ARE BACK AT IS 10 20.

OK, THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. HOLD ON A SECOND HERE.

I THINK THAT PRESENTATION IS COMING UP NOW.

LIKE YOU SAID PREVIOUSLY IN YOUR OPENING REMARKS THAT, YOU KNOW, IT TAKES TIME AND YOU NOTICE THAT FIRST TIME AROUND AND WE MIGHT HAVE A FEW TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES.

SO WE APPRECIATE THE PATIENCE.

YOU GOT IT. LUBBOCK ISD, YOU GO TO THE SLIDE THAT THAT NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE KEEP GOING.

THAT ONE ONE BACK, PLEASE.

RIGHT THERE IN.

SHALL I CONTINUE, I HEAR A RECORDING OF ME IN THE BACKGROUND.

I HEAR YOU. LEVANTE.

PLEASE PROCEED. EVERYTHING'S FINE.

PLEASE PROCEED. THANK YOU.

I LOST MY PHONE.

WHERE DID I GO? THE CHIEF.

WAS.

I DON'T KNOW IF WE LOST THE CHIEF IF.

HE'S RECONNECTING.

CITY MANAGER, DO YOU WANT TO GO TO THE NEXT ONE WHEN WE COME BACK, NEXT PRESENTATION OR DO YOU WANT TO WAIT A MOMENT? YOU KNOW, MADAM MAYOR, WE CAN GO TO WE CAN GO TO THE NEXT TO THE NEXT SLIDE, I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED WITH SHEEP SALES.

I JUST GOT KNOCKED OFF THE LINE MYSELF AND JUST RECONNECTED.

I DON'T SEE THAT. I DON'T SEE THE CHIEF'S PICTURE UP UP THERE YET, HE'S HE JUST TEXTED ME

[00:45:07]

AND SAID HE'S MOVING TO A DIFFERENT COMPUTER.

I KNOW HE'S BEEN HAVING SOME CHALLENGES WITH HIS COMPUTER ALL MORNING, SO.

LET'S LET'S LET'S DO THIS.

I'M JUST LOOKING AT THE POWERPOINT HERE.

WHY DON'T WE ASK CAPTAIN MINNILLO TO TO PICK UP THE POWERPOINT ON SLIDE NINE WHERE WE TALK ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON WITH VSL? OK, EXCELLENT. THANK YOU.

THERE WE GO.

OK, CAPTAIN MINNILLO, ARE YOU WITH US? THEY GOT BUMPED UP TO WHAT THE SANTORI.

SURE, WE'LL COME BACK ON LINE ONE TO THE NEXT ONE.

THE NEXT STEP WOULD BE TO ZEILER WITH PUBLIC INFORMATION.

SO ARE YOU ON THE LINE WITH US? GOOD MORNING, I AM.

CAN ANYBODY HEAR ME? YES, WE CAN GO RIGHT AHEAD.

WONDERFUL. GOOD MORNING.

MY NAME IS ZEILER AND THE PUBLIC INFORMATION COORDINATOR.

AND I'M GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT WHAT OUR OFFICE HAS BEEN DOING DURING THE PANDEMIC.

AND AS YOU KNOW, THIS HAS BEEN A VERY UNIQUE AND RAPIDLY EVOLVING SITUATION.

AND THERE'S BEEN AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF CRITICAL INFORMATION TO SHARE WITH OUR COMMUNITY, BOTH CITY NEWS AND ALSO INFORMATION FROM THE COUNTY, THE STATE, THE SCHOOL SYSTEM, DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, CDC AND A NUMBER OF OTHER SOURCES.

WE'VE TRIED TO BE VERY JUDICIOUS IN THE INFORMATION THAT WE'RE SHARING AND RESPONSIVE TO THE COMMUNITY'S CHANGING NEEDS DURING THIS TIME, IN ADDITION TO MONITORING NEWS FROM OFFICIAL SOURCES. WE'RE ALSO MONITORING THE QUESTIONS THAT STAFF IS RECEIVING FROM THE COMMUNITY TO MAKE SURE WE'RE PROVIDING THE RIGHT INFORMATION.

SO WHEN WE FIRST STARTED FEELING THE IMPACT OF THE CORONAVIRUS, WE ENACTED A COMMUNICATIONS PLAN, MUCH LIKE WHAT WE DO FOR HURRICANES ON THE WEBSITE, WE SET UP A DEDICATED PAGE FOR OUR UPDATES.

WE HAVE WE ACTIVATED THE ALERT BAR, WHICH IS AT THE TOP OF THE PILE, THE PAGES ON THE WEBSITE WE STARTED.

ISSUING CITY EMAILS AND POSTING UPDATES ON ELECTRONIC BILLBOARDS, BILLBOARDS THROUGHOUT THE CITY, AND AS YOU CAN SEE ON THIS SLIDE, WE'VE WE'VE DONE QUITE A NUMBER OF UPDATES AND EMAILS AND THERE'S STILL A LOT MORE TO COME.

ALL OF THE TOOLS THAT ARE ON THIS SLIDE ARE GREAT WHEN WE NEED TO GET INFORMATION OUT FAST, BUT THEY DON'T REACH EVERYONE.

AND WE KNEW WITH THE SCOPE, WITH THIS PANDEMIC, WE NEEDED TO DO EVERYTHING THAT WE COULD TO REACH THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY QUICKLY.

WELL, THEN, CAN WE GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE? SO IN MARCH, WE SENT A POSTCARD OUT TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD AND EVERY BUSINESS IN TAMARACK, THE POSTCARD SHARED A SIMPLE MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR AND COMMISSION TO STAY HOME TO STOP THE SPREAD. IT ALSO PROVIDED SOME GOOD INFORMATION SOURCES FOR PEOPLE TO FOLLOW AND SOME KEY CITY CONTACTS THAT IT MIGHT BE HANDY FOR THEM TO HAVE DURING THIS TIME.

ALSO, TO REACH THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY, WE IDENTIFIED STAFF MEMBERS WHO CAN HELP US TRANSLATE MATERIALS INTO SPANISH AND CREOLE.

WE PROVIDED SOME MATERIALS IN DIFFERENT LANGUAGES AND WE WANTED TO DO MORE OF THAT GOING FORWARD. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AS THE PANDEMIC PROGRESSED AND PEOPLE STARTED FEELING ALL OF THE IMPACTS, WE PUT TOGETHER A COMPREHENSIVE RESOURCE GUIDE TO HELP THE COMMUNITY FIND THE ASSISTANCE THEY NEED, WHETHER THAT WAS ASSISTANCE WITH FOOD RESOURCES, HELP WITH PERSONAL FINANCIAL SITUATIONS OR SMALL BUSINESS ASSISTANCE.

AND THIS EMAIL WAS EMAILED TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS ON APRIL 13.

IT'S ALSO BEEN POSTED ON THE WEBSITE AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

AND IT WILL BE ON THE NEXT IN THE NEXT HAMMERGREN, WHICH COMES OUT IN MAY TO REACH THOSE FOLKS WHO ARE ONLINE OR ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

SO IMAGINE HOW MUCH. NEXT SLIDE.

SO SPEAKING OF SOCIAL MEDIA, WE'VE BEEN VERY ACTIVE DURING THE PANDEMIC POSTING ON FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM AND TWITTER, AN AVERAGE OF THREE OR FIVE TIMES A DAY, OUR OUR

[00:50:03]

STRATEGY HAS BEEN TO VARY OUR POST.

AND MY COLLEAGUE GREG ROSENBERG HAS GOT A GREAT JOB WITH THAT.

WE'VE BEEN SHARING OUR UPDATES.

WE'VE ALSO BEEN SHARING IMPORTANT HEALTH NEWS AND UPDATES FROM OTHER SOURCES.

WE'RE WORKING WITH LAURIE FROM THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT ON A RESTAURANT PROMOTIONAL CAMPAIGN.

AND I KNOW SHE'S GOING TO TELL YOU MORE ABOUT THAT.

BUT WE'VE BEEN SHARING VIDEOS FROM OUR LOCAL RESTAURANTS TO HELP THEM OUT.

DURING THIS TIME, WE'RE SHARING POSITIVE POST TO HELP PEOPLE FEEL BETTER AND COPE DURING THIS UNPRECEDENTED SITUATION THAT INCLUDES OUR FELLOW OR FEAR OF MISSING OUT CAMPAIGN, WHICH IS POST JUST PROVIDING FUN IDEAS OF INTERESTING THINGS PEOPLE CAN DO FROM HOME TO KEEP THEMSELVES ENTERTAINED AND ENGAGED.

IT ALSO INCLUDES VIDEOS THAT WE POSTED FROM A NUMBER OF OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS.

IT'S REALLY IMPACTFUL WHEN PEOPLE HEAR FROM YOU, WHETHER IT'S THROUGH ONE OF OUR CODE RED MESSAGES OR A VIDEO.

SO WE THANK YOU FOR WORKING WITH US IN AN EFFORT TO SHARE INFORMATION WITH THE COMMUNITY.

AND WE HOPE THROUGH OUR COMBINED EFFORTS, PEOPLE ARE ALREADY GETTING OUR CRITICAL INFORMATION. AND IF WE GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

AND IF THIS PICTURE IS ANY INDICATION, WE THINK THEY GOT THE MESSAGE AT LEAST ABOUT WEARING FACE MASKS.

THAT'S THE INFORMATION I'VE GOT TO SHARE TODAY.

BRIAN, THANK YOU. SO NOW WE'RE GOING TO GO BACK TO WE'RE GOING TO GO BACK TO CHIEF SALES.

HE'S BACK ON WITH US.

EXCELLENT. THANK YOU.

UP ONE BACK.

LISTEN, I'M VERY SORRY ABOUT THESE TECHNICAL GLITCHES HERE, I'LL TRY TO GET THROUGH BEFORE I KEEP GETTING THIS MESSAGE EVERY SO OFTEN THAT SAYS DEBUG AND THEN IT KICKED ME OFF. SO I WILL TRY TO BE QUICK ON THIS BEFORE I GET DEBUGGING IN THE COGAT INCIDENT.

OBJECTIVES, AS I MENTIONED BEFORE, WERE JUST TO BREAK IT DOWN A LITTLE BIT MORE IN DETAIL, EDUCATION AND PREVENTION, EDUCATION.

OBVIOUSLY, WE'RE FOCUSING ON ON MULTIPLE DIFFERENT GROUPS.

WE HAVE THE WORKFORCE.

WE HAVE OUR COMMUNITY, OUR RESIDENTS, OUR BUSINESS AND ALSO OUR FIRST RESPONDERS.

AND THAT MESSAGE FOR EACH ONE IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT.

AND WE WORKED EVERY AVENUE ALONG WITH OUR PEIO AND THEY'LL TALK A LOT MORE ABOUT THIS LATER ON ON HOW TO GET THAT MESSAGE OUT TO EACH ONE OF THOSE GROUPS AND THE MESSAGE THAT WORKS BEST FOR THEM IN TERMS OF PREVENTION.

WE CONTINUE TO DOUBLE OUR EFFORTS IN TERMS OF SANITIZING.

MATTER OF FACT, IN THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, WE ACTUALLY DO HOURLY CLEANING OF ALL OF THE THINGS THAT ARE COMMONLY TOUCH PHONE DOORS, DESKTOPS, ALL OF THOSE THINGS LIKE THAT.

AND I KNOW EVERY OTHER DEPARTMENT IS DOING THAT AS WELL.

AND JACK HAS INCREASED THE OUR CLEANING SERVICES THAT I SEE THEM COMING NOW EVERYDAY AROUND LUNCHTIME, CLEANING ALL THE PUBLIC FACILITIES.

SO WE'RE WORKING REALLY, REALLY HARD ON THAT.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, WE'RE TRYING TO GET A COUPLE OF THINGS CALL ABOUT BIOPLASTIC, WHICH IS AN ELECTROSTATIC SPRAYER TO SPRAY ALL OF THE FACILITIES.

WE HAVE ONE IN THE FIRE DEPARTMENT THAT WE'RE USING THROUGHOUT THE CITY RIGHT NOW OR AND KEITH. AND PURCHASES ARE WORKING REALLY HARD TO GET MORE OF THOSE.

SO WHEN THE RESIDENTS AND THE BUSINESSES THAT EVERYTHING DOES OPEN UP, WE'LL HAVE THE ABILITY TO MAKE SURE ALL THOSE PLACES ARE DISINFECTED IN TERMS OF OUR STAFFING AND SOCIAL DISTANCING AND ALL OF IT.

YOU'LL OK, WE'RE GOING TO BE STAFFING AND SOCIAL DISTANCING.

THE DIRECTOR HAS LOOKED AT THEIR OPERATIONS AND FOCUSING ONLY ON THE ESSENTIAL SERVICES AT THIS POINT AND SOCIAL DISTANCING.

SO I KNOW THE MANAGER MENTIONED THAT WE'RE TRYING TO KEEP OUR WORKFORCE LIMITED, BUT WE ARE MAKING SURE ALL THE SERVICES OF THE CITY ARE STILL BEING MAINTAINED.

AND WHAT THE FOCUS ON THIS COVID RESPONSE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. YOUR EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT TEAM, WE, THE EXECUTIVE TEAM, THIS IS THE LIST OF MEETINGS HERE, WE MEET AS A TEAM EVERY DAY, MANAGER HAS US ON A CONFERENCE CALL AROUND 9:00.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO GO TO 10:00, BUT YOU KNOW HOW WE ARE.

WE USUALLY FINISH AROUND 11, 30 OR SO.

BUT THAT THAT TAKES PLACE EVERY DAY.

AND WE ARE ON TOP OF THIS.

AND WE NOT ONLY WITH THAT, BUT WE'RE ALSO ON THE STATE CONFERENCE CALL.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, WE HAVE A STATE CONFERENCE CALL TODAY AT 11 15.

WE ALSO ARE MEETING EACH DEPARTMENT IS MEETING WITH THEIR OWN PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATION.

SO WE'RE TRYING TO STAY AHEAD OF THE CURVE AND KNOW AND KIND OF LIKE ANTICIPATE THE NEXT STEP. WHAT'S HAPPENING, LIKE THE FEEDING SERVICES, GREG? I'LL TALK ABOUT THAT. THOSE THINGS ARE BECAUSE WE'RE OUT THERE MAKING SURE WE'RE AWARE OF WHAT'S GOING ON, WHAT'S IMPACTING COMMUNITY AND MAKING SURE WE CAN RESPOND IN A TIMELY MANNER. WE GET ALL OF OUR PARKS FACILITIES CLOSE AND WE CAN TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THAT. BUT MAINLY THAT'S JUST SOCIAL DISTANCING OUR FIRST RESPONDERS.

AND IT'S A LITTLE TRICKY DEALING WITH THE FIRST RESPONDERS IN TERMS OF, YOU KNOW, THAT WE

[00:55:04]

ARE ACTUALLY TRANSPORTING THESE 36 CALLS AS WHAT WE CALL THEM THERE.

THAT'S WHAT THE COVID CALLS ARE ARE IN THE SYSTEM.

AND I'LL LOOK BACK ON THAT.

AND AND WE STARTED COLLECTING DATA TO SEE WHAT THE PEAK AND THE HIGHS AND LOWS LOOK LIKE.

AND ON AVERAGE, WE'RE DOING ABOUT FOUR TO FIVE CALLS A DAY FOR THESE TYPES OF CALLS.

AND THERE HAVE BEEN I'M LOOKING AT MY DATA NOW, I'D SAY SIX OR SEVEN DAYS WHERE THERE HAVE BEEN EIGHT PEOPLE TRANSPORTED WITH SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19.

YOU KNOW, THAT TAKES A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF TURNAROUND TIME BECAUSE AFTER EACH CALL, YOU HAVE TO DECONTAMINATE A TRUCK, DECONTAMINATE YOUR EQUIPMENT, DECONTAMINATE YOUR PERSONNEL, WASH YOUR UNIFORMS, CHANGE OUTS.

YOU'RE TALKING, YOU KNOW, A LONG DATED RESPONSE TIME EACH TIME YOU'RE DEALING WITH DOSZPOT, HOUR, HOUR AND A HALF TURNAROUND TIME ON THAT.

WHAT WE ARE DOING OUR BEST AND RESPONDING TO ALL CALLS AS WE CAN.

THE GOOD THING IS DURING THIS TIME, I CAN SAY CALL VOLUME HAS REDUCED A BIT.

SO NORMALLY AROUND 40, 45 CALLS A DAY AND ARE DOWN THERE AND HIGH 20S RIGHT NOW.

IT JUST TAKE LONGER WITH THE EPA PRECAUTIONARY STEPS.

AND IN TERMS OF WHERE WE SEE WE ARE MONITORING THAT DAILY.

ANYTHING OF SIGNIFICANCE WINTER THAT IN AND NOT JUST THE CITY OF TOMORROW, BUT THROUGHOUT THE STATE. SO WHERE WE SEE IS LIKE A ONE STOP SHOP.

YOU CAN SEE A STATUS REPORT FOR EVERY MUNICIPALITY, EVERY STATE THROUGHOUT THERE, EVERY EVERY COUNTY THROUGHOUT THE STATE.

THE NEXT LINE. WITH OUR ALSO WITH THIS, WE ARE WORKING REALLY CLOSELY WITH UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, AS A MATTER OF FACT, WE ARE IN THE FIRE DEPARTMENT HERE.

WE KNOW THAT BIO AND I MENTIONED TO YOU BEFORE FOR DISINFECTING IT'S A SPRAYER MACHINE.

THE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL HAS A MACHINE, BUT THEY DON'T HAVE THE THE SOLUTION FOR IT.

SO THE FIRE DEPARTMENT PROVIDES THAT FOR THEM.

WE REFILL IT ONCE A WEEK AND THEY ALLOW US AND OTHER MUNICIPALITIES THAT TRANSPORT THE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL TO DECONTAMINATE THEIR TRUCKS AND DISINFECT THEIR TRUCKS AND ALSO DISINFECT THE HOSPITAL.

ALSO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE A PROPER AMOUNT OF PPE.

AND WE WORK CLOSELY AT LEAST ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK, GIVING THEM A CALL, MAKING SURE THINGS ARE OK WITH OUR LONG TERM CARE FACILITIES.

AS YOU KNOW, THE GOVERNOR, THE PRESIDENT, EVERYONE IN THE COUNTY IS FOCUSED ON LONG TERM CARE FACILITIES. THAT'S OUR VULNERABLE POPULATION, AS YOU KNOW.

THAT'S WHERE MOST OF OUR CALLS ARE.

AND THAT'S WHERE MOST OF THE FATALITIES AND DEATHS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS COVID-19.

SO I'M JUST GOING TO BRIEFLY TALK ABOUT THIS, BUT THERE ARE SO MANY RESOURCES FOCUSED ON THESE LONG TERM CARE FACILITIES.

THE LIST IS ENDLESS.

THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH HAS MADE THIS THEIR TOP PRIORITY.

SO ANYTHING RELATED TO THAT, I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THAT THERE WILL BE A ROBUST RESPONSE TO THAT. WE AND THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, WE CALL THESE NURSING HOME LONG TERM CARE FACILITIES THREE TIMES A WEEK, MONDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAYS.

WE CHECK ON THEIR THEIR STAFF TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING'S OK.

WE MAKE SURE THEY'RE FOLLOWING DISINFECTING PROCEDURES.

IF THEY NEED ANY EQUIPMENT, WE DO THAT.

MATTER OF FACT, WE'VE DONE IN THE FIRE DEPARTMENT IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE COUNTY EOC, THREE DELIVERIES OF PPE, THE NURSING FACILITIES, AND THEY'RE VERY APPRECIATIVE OF THAT.

AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. WE ARE CONTINUING TO MONITOR CDC GUIDELINES, AND I GOT TO TELL YOU, THESE THINGS CHANGE OFTEN AS MORE INFORMATION IS COMING OUT.

WE'VE GOT TO STAY ABREAST OF THAT TO SLOW THE SPREAD.

AND THE IS ADOPTING THOSE GUIDELINES AND THEY'RE ALSO PUTTING OUT GUIDELINES.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, WE'RE FOLLOWING ALL THE EXECUTIVE ORDERS.

THERE'S QUITE A LIST OF THOSE, BUT THEY'RE ALL ASSOCIATED WITH SLOWING THE SPREAD SOCIAL DISTANCING AND LIMITING THE EXPOSURE.

AND TO TALK ABOUT MONITORING CLUSTER OUTBREAKS, OUR COUNTY DISPATCH SYSTEM DOES A REALLY GOOD JOB. WHAT I MENTIONED TO YOU EARLIER CALLED P THIRTY SIX TYPE CALLS AND THE COUNTY DISPATCH IS MONITORING THE P THIRTY SIX CALL THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY.

SO WE KNOW IF THERE'S A SPIKE IN AN AREA, IF YOU KNOW, IF THERE'S A SEVERAL TRANSPORTS FROM ONE PARTICULAR NURSING HOME OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

AND EACH WEEK THE FIRE CHIEFS GET AN UPDATE ON WHAT THOSE CALLS LOOK LIKE.

AND RIGHT NOW AND ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE THE CALLS ARE TRENDING DOWNWARD IN TERMS OF THESE THIRTY SIX CALLS RECOVERY, THERE WILL BE A LOT OF DISCUSSION ON THAT.

AND I KNOW THE CITY MANAGER TALKED ABOUT THAT IN HIS OPENING REMARKS, BUT WE ARE OBVIOUSLY FOCUSING ON THOSE THINGS.

CITY OPERATIONS, ECONOMIC RECOVERY PLAN, STATE AND FEDERAL ASSISTANCE.

AND I KNOW LORI IS WORKING ON THAT AND JUST RESILIENCY PLANNING IN GENERAL.

ONE LAST NOTE ON THAT IS BECAUSE THIS IS A WRAP UP OF MY PRESENTATION.

BUT, YOU KNOW, HURRICANE SEASON IS JUST RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER.

I STARTED HAVING A DISCUSSION WITH OUR EXECUTIVE TEAM ON THAT LAST COUPLE OF DAYS.

[01:00:06]

BUT WE GOT TO KEEP IN MIND THAT NOW HURRICANE SEASON IS COMING IN.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, OUR SEASON IS PREDICTED TO BE MORE ACTIVE THAN NORMAL.

AND AND KEEP IN MIND, WE GOT TO OVERLAY OUR CURRENT RESPONSE ON TOP OF OF OUR OF OUR HURRICANE RESPONSE. SO THAT'S GOING TO BE TRICKY.

WE GOT TO TALK ABOUT SOCIAL DISTANCING AND ALL THE THINGS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THAT IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN DISRUPTIONS.

SO MORE TO COME ON THAT.

AND THAT'LL JUST BE OUR THIS RIGHT NOW.

THIS INCIDENT IS JUST GOOD PLANNING FOR OUR NEXT ONE.

SO WE'LL BE PREPARED.

AND IF THERE'S NO QUESTIONS, THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO HAVE FUN.

THANK YOU. CITY MANAGER.

YES. WE'LL HAVE CAPTAIN MINNILLO NEXT.

THANK YOU. GOOD MORNING.

I'LL GIVE YOU A QUICK UPDATE FROM YOUR LAW ENFORCEMENT SIDE FOR DISTRICT SEVEN TAMARACK.

WE HAVE NINETY ONE OUT OF FIFTY EIGHT HUNDRED EMPLOYEES FOR THE BSO IN GENERAL WERE INFECTED WITH COVID, WHICH IS LITERALLY A VERY SMALL NUMBER.

IT'S ONE POINT SIX PERCENT OF OUR OVERALL EMPLOYEES.

AND THE GOOD NEWS IS WE HAVE EIGHT EMPLOYEES ALREADY RETURNING BACK TO WORK, FULLY RECOVERED FROM COVID.

WE ARE VERY LUCKY. WE HAVE NONE OF OUR TAMRAT DEPUTIES OR EMPLOYEES WERE AFFECTED BY KOVIK. SO WE ARE WORKING AT FULL CAPACITY.

WELL, I THINK WE'VE CHANGED OUR NON-EMERGENCY CALLS WE'RE HANDLING VIA PHONE FOR OUR SOCIAL DISTANCING. AND SO FAR IT'S WORKED REALLY WELL.

WE'VE HAD NO ISSUES OR COMPLAINTS WITH THAT AND WE'VE ACTUALLY GOTTEN A LOT OF PHONE CALLS. IT WAS MORE CONVENIENT FOR SOME OF OUR RESIDENTS, THOUGH.

WE LIKE THE WAY THAT ACTUALLY WORKED OUT.

WHEN IT STARTED, WE DID SEE A QUICK DECREASE IN OVERALL CRIME, OBVIOUSLY, BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE IN THE HOUSE AND EVEN CALL VOLUME, WE WERE DOWN ABOUT 40 PERCENT INITIALLY.

IT'S CREEPING UP STEADILY OR ABOUT TWENTY TO TWENTY FIVE PERCENT DECREASE AT THIS POINT.

AND WE'RE STARTING TO SEE A LITTLE BIT OF CRIME STARTING JUVENILE CRIME AND SOME VEHICULAR CRIMES BREAK INTO SOME CARS.

WE'VE MADE THREE ARRESTS DURING THAT FOR BURGLARY CONVENIENCE.

BUT RIGHT NOW ALL EVERYONE WANTS PLAYS A FULLY STOCKED WITH GEAR AND WE BACK UP.

SO WE HAVE A WHOLE ROTATION ON GETTING HERE.

ONE THING WE WERE DEALING WITH IS THE PARKS.

WE WERE STARTING TO GET A LOT OF COMPLAINTS ON SEVERAL PARKS WHERE PEOPLE WERE CONGREGATING TO PLAYING ORGANIZED SPORTS.

SO WE WERE HANDLING THAT DAILY.

AND BE HONEST WITH YOU, ONCE WE WERE OUT THERE SHOWING SOME PRESENCE, WE GOT GOOD RECEPTION FROM THE RESIDENTS, ARE THE PARTICIPANTS ON THE FIELD, AND THEY DISPERSED WITHOUT ANY ISSUES. BUT IT'S A CONSTANT CHASE BACK AND FORTH.

MY MAIN FOCUS RIGHT NOW, AND IT'S GOING TO CONTINUE IS ON OUR SHOPPING CENTERS, MAKING SURE THAT OUR DISTRIBUTION TO OUR SENIORS DURING THAT TIMES ARE BEING ADHERED TO AND THAT WE'RE NOT HAVING TOO MANY SHOPLIFTING, EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE SOME SHOPLIFTING INCREASES.

OVERALL, THE CRIME HAS BEEN LOW AND WE'RE REALLY GRATEFUL TO OUR PARTNERS AT PUBLIX AND SOME OF THE STORES THAT WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY FOR RESIDENTS TO OPEN UP CERTAIN TIMES AND GETTING THE EQUIPMENT OUT. SO WE WERE TRYING TO SECURE SOME OF THEIR LOADS IN THE BEGINNING, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT CAME TO THE NEW STOCK OF PAPER PRODUCTS AND STUFF LIKE THAT. SO WE HAD A GOOD PARTNERSHIP WITH THEM.

AND THE NEXT SLIDE JUST SHOWS YOU HERE AS THE THE FENCES, IF YOU WANTED TO SEE SOME OF THE CRIMES AND HOW THEY RELATED THIS TIME LAST YEAR, THEY JUST SOME RAW NUMBERS FOR REFERENCE. THAT'S ALL.

I HAVE TO BE YOURSELF. OK, THANK YOU, CAPTAIN.

WE WE HEARD FROM THE PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER.

I THINK WE'LL GO STRAIGHT TO CLAUDIO GRUNDY IN THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT.

GOOD MORNING, MADAME MAYOR AND VICE MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS.

THE UPDATE THAT I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU THIS MORNING IS BASICALLY ABOUT THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT HAS BEEN DOING SINCE OUR OFFICES WERE CLOSED IN MARCH 17.

BUT OBVIOUSLY WE'VE BEEN CONTINUING WITH OUR BUSINESS BECAUSE, AS YOU KNOW, WE HAVE ONLINE PERMITTING AND ELECTRONIC PLANNING REVIEW THAT WE'VE HAD IT FOR A WHILE NOW.

SO OUR BUSINESS CONTINUES WITH OUR CUSTOMERS SUBMITTING PERMITS AND RECEIVING THE PLAN, REVIEW COMMENTS ONLINE.

AND THE AVERAGE OF PERMITS THAT WE'VE BEEN RECEIVING ON A DAILY BASIS IS ABOUT 15 ON AVERAGE. NEW PERMITS SUBMITTED, IF YOU CAN GO BACK.

THANK YOU. ARE AS I SAID BEFORE, OUR PERMITS ARE PROCESSED ELECTRONICALLY.

THE CUSTOMERS ARE ABLE TO PAY ONLINE.

THEY RECEIVE THEIR PERMITS ONLINE.

SO EVERYTHING IS DONE ONLINE.

AND OUR PERMIT REPRESENTATIVES AT THE OFFICE THAT WE HAVE ARE RECEIVING CALLS ON A DAILY BASIS AND WE'RE AVERAGING ABOUT 120 CALLS FROM CUSTOMERS AND CONTRACTORS ON A DAILY BASIS

[01:05:02]

IN OUR OFFICE. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

OUR INSPECTORS ARE CONTINUING TO DO INSPECTIONS ON THE MAJOR PROJECTS AND EXTERIOR INSPECTIONS THROUGHOUT THE CITY.

RESIDENTIAL INSPECTIONS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED, BUT ON A SPECIAL OCCASION, IF SOMEBODY NEEDS A SPECIAL INSPECTION FOR INTERIOR OF THE HOUSE, IF THEY PREARRANGE IT WITH WITH OUR STAFF, WE WOULD GLADLY ENTERTAIN THAT, DO IT ON A ONE TO ONE BASIS.

OUR INSPECTORS ARE STILL OUT THERE AND THEY'RE FOLLOWING THE CDC GUIDELINES.

SO SOCIAL DISTANCING, THEY'RE WEARING MASKS, GLOVES, AND THEY'RE FOLLOWING ALL THE CDC GUIDELINES OF SEPARATION SO THEY CAN CONTINUE DOING OUR BUSINESS AND OUR INSPECTIONS TO OUR CUSTOMERS. AND LASTLY, GOVERNOR, THE SCIENTISTS MADE AN EXECUTIVE ORDER 20 50 TO WHICH TALKED ABOUT EXTENDING ANY PERMITS THAT HAD EXPIRED OR WILL EXPIRE FOR A PERIOD OF TIME UNTIL THE EMERGENCY ORDER IS LIFTED.

SO WE HAD ISSUED A MEMO TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS AND CONTRACTORS ADVISING THEM THAT ANY PERMIT THAT HAS EXPIRED OR WILL EXPIRE DURING THIS TIME WILL BE EXTENDED UNTIL JUNE 30TH.

AND WITH THAT, YOU KNOW, THAT'S MY PRESENTATION.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, I'LL GLADLY ENTERTAIN ANY.

NO QUESTION, CITY MANAGER, NEXT PERSON.

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR. NEXT UP, WE HAVE GREG WATER FROM THE PARKS AND RECREATION.

GOOD MORNING, MAYOR, VICE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION, GREG WARNER, DIRECTOR OF PARKS AND RECREATION.

I WONDER WHAT YOU KNOW A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT WE'RE DOING.

AND I'VE BEEN VERY PROUD OF STAFF FOR THEIR EXPEDIENCY IN GETTING THESE THINGS SET UP AND GOING. BUT JUST A BRIEF, BRIEF LIST OF WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING.

WE'RE OFFERING CURRENTLY 11 DIFFERENT EXERCISE CLASSES, PROVIDING 20 HOURS OF CLASS TIME PER WEEK. AND THOSE CLASSES ARE GOING VERY WELL.

AND I HAVE TO QUESTION THE BEGINNING, THINKING WHETHER PEOPLE WOULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THESE. BUT PEOPLE ARE TAKING FULL ADVANTAGE.

AND IF YOU TAKE ALL THOSE CLASS HOURS, WE'RE AVERAGING ABOUT 50 PEOPLE PER CLASS.

AND THAT AND JAZZERCISE LAST MONDAY HAD ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY SIX PEOPLE PARTICIPATING.

SO THOSE ARE BEING VERY WELL USED.

WE'RE OFFERING THE KIDS ZUMBA CLASS AND WE'RE AVERAGING RIGHT AROUND 13 KIDS PER CLASS WITH THAT CREATIVE WRITING AND DRAWING CLASSES.

AS THE MAYOR MENTIONED EARLIER, THE YOUTH COUNCIL MEETINGS HAVE BEEN TAKING PLACE WEEKLY AND VERY PRODUCTIVE WITH THE WITH THE TEENS IN THAT IN THAT GROUP.

WE'RE ALSO OFFERING YOUTH BEGINNER BALLET AND HIP HOP DANCE CLASSES.

AND THEN SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE DOING ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE AS WELL IS ONE OF OUR STAFF FROM THE FITNESS CENTER IS DOING IN-HOME FITNESS CLASSES ON FACEBOOK, GIVING IDEAS FOR HOW YOU CAN WORK OUT AT HOME, USING EVERYDAY THINGS THAT YOU MAY HAVE AROUND YOUR HOUSE TO WORK OUT WITH.

WE'VE BEEN ADVERTISING THE LARGEST CATCH FISHING COMPETITION, AND THAT'S A WEEKLY COMPETITION WHERE WE'RE GETTING SOME GOOD PARTICIPATION IN THAT.

WE STREAMED ONE OF MY STAFF, DID AN ARTS AND CRAFTS PROJECT THAT WE STREAMED FOR AS AN EASTER PROJECT FOR PEOPLE.

AND WE'VE ALSO BEEN POSTING DIFFERENT INFORMATION FOR ACTIVITIES ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE ONE POSTING THAT WE'RE DOING AS TINY TOWN ACTIVITIES THAT PARENTS CAN DO HERE WITH THEIR KIDS AND SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE PUTTING INTO INTO PLACE STARTING THIS WEEK AS A BEGINNER SPANISH LANGUAGE CLASS.

ALSO THIS SATURDAY, WE HAVE AN NBA 2K TWENTY VIRTUAL BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT BASED OFF OF XBOX. AND A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT I DID NOT PUT DOWN HERE.

WE HAVE THE BEGINNING OF MAY ON A FRIDAY NIGHT, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A NIñOS DANCE PARTY CLASS. ALSO, WE'RE HAVING CURRENTLY THIS WEEK, WE'RE ALSO HAVING A TICK TOCK FAMILY VIDEO COMPETITION TO GET PEOPLE, GET PEOPLE INVOLVED, KEEP GETTING PEOPLE MOVING SO WELL THAT IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT ONE, PLEASE.

AND THE SOCIAL SERVICES AND TRANSPORTATION SIDE STAFF HAD AS MADE CONTACT WITH ALL THE INDIVIDUALS AND HAVE BEEN KEEPING IN CONSISTENT CONTACT WITH OUR VULNERABLE POPULATION REGISTRY AND WE CURRENTLY HAVE ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY THREE PEOPLE ON THAT ON THAT REGISTRY AND STAFF ALSO PEOPLE IN NEED FOR MASKS AND GLOVES.

[01:10:03]

WE HAVE BEEN PROVIDING MASKS AND GLOVES TO HIGH RISK RESIDENTS THAT SOCIAL SERVICE HAS BEEN IN CONTACT WITH.

AND IT WAS MENTIONED EARLIER, BUT WE'VE BEEN WORKING WITH FEEDING SOUTH FLORIDA TO COORDINATE FOOD DISTRIBUTION AND THE KOREAN UNITED METHODIST CHURCH HAS BEEN DOING IT FOR FOR A FEW WEEKS NOW.

AND WE GOT INVOLVED WITH THEM IN A PARTNERSHIP BY PROVIDING DECENT DETAIL FOR THEM TO HELP COORDINATE TRAFFIC CONTROL.

AND THIS MORNING STARTED AT THE CHRISTIAN LIFE CENTER, AND WE DID THE AGREEMENT WITH FEEDING SOUTH FLORIDA FOR THAT AND THEN AN AGREEMENT WITH THE CHRISTIAN LIFE CENTER.

AND THAT WENT OFF WITH A BOOM THIS MORNING AS I GOT THERE AROUND SEVEN O'CLOCK.

THERE WAS PROBABLY 400 CARS IN LINE ALREADY.

SO DEFINITELY SHOWING THAT THERE IS A NEED OUT THERE FOR THAT FOR THAT FOOD DISTRIBUTION.

AND THAT WILL BE GOING WEEKLY ON ON WEDNESDAY MORNINGS FROM NINE TO 11.

ALSO WORKING CLOSELY WITH HRC, THE AGING DISABILITY RESOURCE CENTER, TO EXPEDITE MAIL DELIVERY ASSISTANCE FOR OUR RESIDENTS SO THEY HAVE A VERY HIGH DEMAND THAT THEIR AITUTAKI IS RECEIVING. BUT OUR SOCIAL SERVICES STAFF HAVE MADE CONTACT WITH THEM SO OUR RESIDENTS CAN FILTER THEIR APPLICATION THROUGH OUR STAFF AND THEN THEY'RE GETTING SOME EXPEDITED SERVICE FOR THAT.

WE ALSO, THROUGH OUR FOOD PANTRY, DONATED FOOD TO ONE OF THE TAMRAT FOOD PANTRIES THAT WAS IN NEED. THEY DIDN'T HAVE THE SUPPLIES THAT THEY NEEDED TO SERVICE THE RESIDENTS THAT THEY WERE SERVING. SO WE WERE ABLE TO PROVIDE FOOD FOR THEM TO CONTINUE THAT SERVICE.

AND ALSO WITH WE AS YOU KNOW, WE DISCONTINUED THE ROUTE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM, BUT WE ARE CONTINUING TO OFFER PARATRANSIT SERVICE, THE DOOR TO DOOR SERVICE FOR OUR MOST NEEDIEST RESIDENTS. AND THAT SERVICE IS TO MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS, GROCERY SHOPPING FOR.

RIGHT. ARE YOU THERE? OK, WELL, IT SOUNDS LIKE WE LOST GREG LAMBERT, YOU WANT TO GIVE US THE NEXT SLIDE? THE. THANK GOD.

LET'S GO TO THE MOVIES.

WHEN YOU GO BACK TO THE LAST PARKS AND RECREATION, SLIVE, THE FUTURE CONSIDERATION SLIGHTLY. THAT'S RIGHT.

THANK YOU, COMMISSION COMMISSIONER, I'LL TAKE THIS LAST SLIDE FOR GREG.

WE HAVE A NUMBER OF THINGS THAT WE ARE CONSIDERING ON A GOING FORWARD BASIS IN PARKS AND RECREATION. SUMMER CAMP IS PROBABLY OUR BIGGEST DECISION AT THIS POINT IN CONSULTING WITH THE OTHER CITIES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY THAT DO SUMMER CAMP.

WE ARE ALL RUNNING INTO THE SAME PROBLEM AND THAT WE DON'T BELIEVE THAT THE SCHOOLS THAT WE ALL USE ARE GOING TO BE AVAILABLE TO US THIS SUMMER FOR SUMMER CAMP.

AND IF NOT, THAT'S GOING TO DRAMATICALLY IMPACT AND IN FACT, PROBABLY CAUSED THE CLOSURE OF ANY NUMBER OF MUNICIPALLY RUN SUMMER CAMPS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY.

OURS, OURS INCLUDED.

AND SO WE ARE WORKING THROUGH IT AT THIS TIME, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW EXACTLY WE'RE GOING TO DO SUMMER CAMP UNDER THE CURRENT CONDITIONS OR IF WE CAN DO SUMMER CAMP UNDER THE CURRENT CONDITIONS.

ARE YOU BACK, GREG? YES. OK, GO GO RIGHT AHEAD.

TAKE IT FROM THERE, GREG. OK.

AS MIKE WAS SAYING THAT THE STAFF IS WORKING ON SOME ALTERNATIVE MEASURES TO POSSIBLY BE ABLE TO OFFER SUMMER CAMP.

WE UNDERSTAND A VERY IMPORTANT PROGRAM FOR THE PARENTS AND OUR RESIDENTS.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT ALL OPTIONS FOR THAT.

ALSO WORKING WITH OUR MANAGEMENT CLOSELY AND KIND OF COMMUNICATING WITH ALL THE OTHER OUR COUNTY PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENTS TO DETERMINE SOME THINGS ABOUT OPENING OUR AQUATIC CENTER. AND I'LL SKIP DOWN TO THE LAST ONE ABOUT OUR OTHER RECREATION FACILITIES.

SO THOSE CONSIDERATIONS THAT WE NEED TO LOOK AT ARE OBVIOUSLY OPENING UP THE AQUATIC CENTER, THE FITNESS CENTER, THE COMMUNITY CENTER, REC CENTER, AND HOW WE HOW WE GO ABOUT DOING THAT, CONTINUING TO HAVE SOME MEASURE OF SOCIAL DISTANCING AND HOW WE HOW WE GO ABOUT ALL THAT. SO THOSE ARE ALL THINGS THAT ARE IN DISCUSSIONS.

ALSO, BIG CONSIDERATIONS FOR US ARE TO TWO HOUR SPECIAL EVENTS THAT WE HAVE COMING UP

[01:15:02]

MEMORIAL DAY, WHICH IS COMING UP NEXT MONTH, WHERE WE'RE LOOKING AT SOME POSSIBILITIES FOR THAT, POSSIBLY DOING A VIRTUAL MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY IF THINGS DON'T DON'T BREAK UP BY THAT BY THAT TIME.

AND THEN THE FOURTH OF JULY IS ALSO A BIG DISCUSSION THAT WE'RE HAVING WITH WITH ALL OF OUR PROFESSIONALS NETWORK THROUGHOUT BROWARD COUNTY AS TO WHAT WHAT THE DIFFERENT CITIES ARE GOING TO BE DOING FOR FOURTH OF JULY.

WELL, THAT IS MY PRESENTATION.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS TO ANSWER QUESTIONS TO THE MANAGER, PLEASE GO TO THE NEXT PRESENTATION ABOUT AMERICA.

WE HAVE MAXINE CALLOWAY WITH COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.

AS YOU KNOW, COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT HAS ANY NUMBER OF HOUSING AND CBG, RESIDENT AND ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS. AND MAXINE IS GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE TIME THIS MORNING TO TELL YOU EVERYTHING THAT COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT IS DOING TO TRY TO SERVE OUR RESIDENTS BETTER DURING THIS CRISIS.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, MR. MANAGER.

GOOD MORNING TO EVERYONE.

AGAIN, MAXINE CALLAWAY, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.

AND I'LL START OFF WITH CODE COMPLIANCE, COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND IS STILL WORKING.

WE'RE VERY ACTIVE AND CALLED SPECIFICALLY IS MAINTAINING A HIGH LEVEL OF VISIBILITY OUT THERE IN THE COMMUNITY. WE ARE CONTINUING OUR DAILY COVERAGE OUT IN OUR VEHICLES.

AND THIS ALSO INCLUDES SATURDAYS THAT WE'RE OUT THERE.

THE OFFICERS ARE ALSO ASSIGNED TO THEIR ONE PARTICULAR VEHICLE, WHICH, OF COURSE, LIMIT THEIR ACCESS TO CITY HALL AND JUST LIMITS THE SHARING OF THAT VEHICLE AS WELL.

AND SO THAT IS ONGOING.

WE ARE CONTINUING TO ADDRESS CALLS VIA THE CRT PLATFORMS AS WELL AS WEB COMPLAINTS.

SO WHILE WE ARE REDUCING THE WRITING OF NEW VIOLATIONS AND WE'RE ISSUING MORE COURTESY NOTICES, WE'RE PROCESSING NOTICES AS NEEDED.

AND WE ARE ALSO PROCESSING THESE SETTLEMENTS BECAUSE WE'RE SEEING A FEW SALE OF PROPERTIES THAT ARE GOING ON.

AND SO WE'RE DOING SOME LEAN SETTLEMENTS FOR THAT.

AS YOU MIGHT KNOW, WE HAVE PUSHED BACK FOR A MAGISTRATE HEARING THE RED LIGHT CAMERA HEARINGS UNTIL JUNE AS OF NOW.

AND SO IF THINGS CHANGE, THEN WE'LL CHANGE THAT.

BUT FOR NOW, WE HAVE PUSHED THOSE UP RELATIVE TO TDB AND HOUSING, AS MENTIONED BY THE MANAGER. AND I KNOW THAT.

AND YOU ALSO MENTION OR HERE IS AN ALLOCATION, WE DID GET WORD OUT OR HERE'S AG ALLOCATION. AND BECAUSE WE ARE AN ENTITLEMENT JURISDICTION, WHICH MEANS THAT WE RECEIVE OUR FUNDING DIRECTLY, NOT THROUGH THE COUNTY.

WE DO KNOW AT THIS POINT THAT WE WILL RECEIVE TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY FIVE THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS FROM THE IS AG.

AND WE ALSO KNOW THAT OUR REGULAR ALLOCATION FOR FISCAL YEAR TWENTY TWENTY IS FOUR HUNDRED AND SEVENTEEN THOUSAND TO FORTY TWO, WHICH IS A BIT HIGHER THAN WE HAVE GOTTEN IN THE PAST. WE ARE GOING TO BE COMBINING THEM AND TAKING THEM TOGETHER TO YOU IN AN ACTION PLAN. AND AS YOU MIGHT RECALL, THE ACTION PLAN REALLY SPELLS OUT THE ACTIVITIES THAT WE PLAN TO DO FOR THE NEXT FISCAL YEAR BECAUSE OF COVID-19.

WE DO PLAN ON BRINGING SOME NEW ACTIVITIES RELATIVE TO PUBLIC SERVICE.

SO WE MIGHT BE BRINGING SOME ADDITIONAL RECIPIENTS TO OFFER FUNDING TO HELP WITH THE NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY, AS WELL AS POSSIBLY SOME ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES OR STRATEGIES. YOU WILL SEE THAT IN THE ACTION AND WE BRING THAT TO YOU LATER ON THIS YEAR.

SO JUST TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THE HUD HAS LIFTED THE CAP FOR PUBLIC SERVICES, IT'S 15 PERCENT MAXIMUM THAT FIRST WE WERE ABLE TO OFFER TO PUBLIC SERVICES.

AND YOU KNOW THAT WE CURRENTLY FUND THE YOUTH PROGRAM AS WELL AS MEALS ON WHEELS FOR SENIOR FEEDIN BECAUSE THE CAP IS LIFTED, WE'RE ABLE TO DO A BIT MORE.

AND SO WE WILL BE FEEDING AN ADDITIONAL 50 SENIORS FROM TEMERAIRE WAITING LIST THIS YEAR, CDG FUNDS.

RELATIVE FOR FIRST TIME, HOME BUYER, A DOWN PAYMENT PROGRAM, AS YOU KNOW, WE OPENED ABOUT A WEEK AND A HALF AGO, ALL THE PROGRAM SEEMS TO BE ONE OF OUR MOST SUCCESSFUL.

AS OF LATE YESTERDAY, WE HAD TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTY EIGHT APPLICATIONS THAT WERE FILED AND COMPLETED AND ANOTHER FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY ONE APPLICATIONS IN THE HOPPER.

AND SO TODAY, STAFF WILL BE SENDING EMAILS OUT TO THOSE FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY ONE PENDING APPLICATIONS TO LET THEM KNOW THAT THE PROGRAM CLOSES ON FRIDAY AND THEY NEED TO UPLOAD ALL THEIR BACKUP INFORMATION AND ALL THE MATERIALS THAT THEY NEED.

AND ADD JUST JUST AS A REMINDER, THIS PROGRAM PROVIDES UP TO FORTY THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR A DOWN PAYMENT AND CLOSING COST ASSISTANCE FOR INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE INTERESTED IN BUYING IN TAMARACK OR BUYING THEIR FIRST HOME HERE IN TAMPA NEXT.

THAT NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO ARE FUNDED MORTGAGE UTILITY AND RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM AND A FEW OTHER COMMUNITIES ARE LOOKING TO DO THIS.

WE'RE HAPPY TO BE ONE OF THE FIRST COMMUNITIES TO BE ROLLING THIS OUT.

[01:20:03]

WE EXPECT TO OPEN THIS PROGRAM ON MONDAY, APRIL TWENTY SEVEN.

BUT IT PROVIDES FUNDING TO QUALIFIED RESIDENTS UP TO THREE MONTHS OF MORTGAGE RENT, UTILITY PAYMENT, WHAT NOT TO EXCEED FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS OF ANY PARTICULAR APPLICANT.

AND WE WILL BE PROVIDING PRIORITY TO SPECIAL NEEDS.

AND SPECIAL NEEDS IS DEFINED BY HUD.

THAT INCLUDES YOUR PERSONS RECEIVING SSI, YOUR VETERANS RECEIVING DISABILITY BENEFITS FOR PERSONS WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES.

BUT HUD HAS DEFINED FOR US SPECIAL NEEDS INDIVIDUALS, SO WE'RE OFFERING PRIORITY TO THEM AS WELL AS OUR RESIDENTS THAT WE'RE ALREADY ASSISTED UNDER OUR HOME REPAIR PROGRAM.

AND THAT'S JUST TO ENSURE THAT INVESTMENT THAT WE'VE MADE IN THESE HOMES ARE NOT SUBJECTED TO FORECLOSURE.

SO WE WANT TO GIVE THEM PRIORITY TO HELP WITH MORTGAGE PAYMENT OR UTILITIES, COMPETITION AND MONEY. AND IT'S GOING TO BE A ROLLING WINDOW OPEN.

AND THEN IF THIS PROGRAM IS SUCCESSFUL, IT'S ONE OF THE STRATEGIES THAT WE WILL BRING TO YOU TO HAVE FUNDED UNDER THE CDG FUNDING.

SO WE'RE GOING TO OPEN THIS ON MONDAY AND SEE HOW WE DO.

AND THEN IF WE NEED MORE FUNDS, OF COURSE, THEN WE'RE THINKING ABOUT USING THE CURE'S AT CBG FUNDS CONTINUE THIS PROGRAM.

WE DON'T NEED TO BRING THIS TO YOU FOR AN AMENDMENT BECAUSE IT'S CONSIDERED A TECHNICAL REVISION TO A LOT BECAUSE WE ALREADY HAVE A DISASTER STRATEGY.

AND SO WE'RE ABLE JUST TO OPEN THIS ADVERTISING IS AVAILABLE TO OUR RESIDENTS RIGHT AWAY AND JUST TO END ON OUR PLANET TO UPDATE THIS VERY, VERY PROUD OF OUR PROGRESS SO FAR.

SCREEN IS JUST WHERE WE ARE.

AS OF THREE P.M. ON YESTERDAY, WE ARE EXCEEDING THE NATIONAL FLORIDA AND BROWARD RESPONSE RATE. TAMARACK IS AT FIFTY SIX POINT FIVE PERCENT AND YOU CAN SEE WHAT EVERYONE ELSE IS.

I JUST WANT TO APPLAUD EVERYONE THAT ASSISTED US IN GETTING TO WHERE WE ARE.

AND I JUST WANT TO END ON THAT SIDE AND I'LL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS AT THIS POINT.

HAVE CAN KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK TO MANAGE, THERE'S NO QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS.

NEXT PERSON, PLEASE.

NEXT UP WOULD BE JACK STRAIN WITH PUBLIC SERVICES.

GOOD MORNING, MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS, PUBLIC SERVICES UPDATE AND DECONTAMINATION AND SANITATION OF CITY FACILITIES TWICE DAILY.

AND WE ARE ALSO DECONTAMINATING THE PARATRANSIT VEHICLES THAT ARE BEING USED ON A DAILY BASIS. WORK ON OUR WATER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM IS RESTRICTED TO EMERGENCY WORK.

ONLY THOSE SCHEDULED SHUTDOWNS OF WATER SERVICE AND LESS EMERGENCY RELATED ALL CONTRACTORS WORKING IN THE CITY FACILITIES ARE REQUIRED TO BE OUTFITTED WITH PROPER PPE AND THEIR TEMPERATURES ARE TAKEN PRIOR TO THEM EMPTYING AND ENTERING ANY OF OUR FACILITIES. OUR CITY OUTDOOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS ARE PROCEEDING AS SCHEDULED.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, NO QUESTIONS.

CITY MANAGER. THANK YOU, JACK.

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR.

CHRISTINE, COULD YOU PUT ME BACK TO FINANCIAL SERVICES? GOOD MORNING. GOOD MORNING, COLLEAGUES.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES, WE GET SICK, OK? OK, WE CONTINUE TO RECEIVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF CALLS ON AVERAGE AS WE DID PARTICLEBOARD 19 ON OUR CLOSURE. WE HAD OVER 2000 CALLS IN CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH FOR VARIOUS ISSUES.

WE ARE NOT DOING ANY SHUT OFF AND ON PAYMENT AS A RESULT OF OUR SUSPENSION, BUT WE CONTINUE TO PROVIDE SERVICE AND WE HAVE SEEN SOME LAG IN PAYMENTS BECAUSE OF THE SUSPENSION. WE ARE CONTINUOUSLY SEEKING GRANT OPPORTUNITIES.

FEMA IS PROVIDING A FEW AVENUES FOR REIMBURSEMENT, SOME OVER TIME IN THE FIRE DEPARTMENT OR EOC COSTS AND SOME P E COST, THE CURRENT OF US AID, RELIEF AND ECONOMIC SECURITY.

WHAT WE REFER TO AS THE CARE ACT, HAS NOT PROVIDED MUCH RELIEF FROM LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

WE HAVE RECEIVED SOME FUNDING FOR ISD, BUT SO FAR WE HAVE HAD VERY FEW AVENUES, NOTHING SUBSTANTIAL AND CERTAINLY NOTHING TO ADDRESS LOST REVENUE.

THE FAMILY FOR ABOUT ONE THAT'S ALSO CREATED SOME ADDITIONAL EXPENDITURE, WHICH I'M SURE HRR IS GOING TO BE ADDRESSED IN THEIR IN THEIR PRESENTATION.

WE CONTINUE TO HELP OTHER DEPARTMENTS TO PROCURE SUPPLIES AND DEMAND ITEMS ARE MAINLY PPD FOR FIRE AND SANITATION SUPPLIES CITYWIDE.

WE CONTINUE TO PAY OUR EMPLOYEES.

WE CONTINUE TO DO OUR ACCOUNTS PAYABLE AND PAY OUR OTHER OBLIGATIONS AS THEY FOLLOW YOU.

[01:25:02]

AND AS WE NAVIGATE THE SECOND HALF OF FISCAL YEAR 2020, WE ARE CLOSELY MONITORING OUR EXPENDITURES AND OUR REVENUE.

WE HAVE ALREADY EXPERIENCED SOME REVENUE LOSS FROM SALES TAX WHERE WE SAW A 15 PERCENT DECREASE FROM SALES THAT HAPPENED IN FEBRUARY.

SO WE ARE LOOKING TO SEE WHAT WHAT WILL COME ABOUT IN THE ENSUING MONTHS.

WE ALSO HAVE LOST REVENUE FROM OUR FEE FOR SERVICES, MAINLY LOST REVENUE FOR OUR PARKS AND RECREATION PROGRAMS. WE WILL NOT KNOW THE FULL EFFECT OCTOBER 19 UNTIL ALL INFORMATION COMES IN FROM THE STATE AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS REGARDING OUR REDUCTIONS AND COLLECTIONS.

MORE INFORMATION IN THE COMING TO YOU BY THE CITY MANAGER'S OFFICE REGARDING OUR ANALYSIS.

WE ARE ALSO IN THE MIDDLE OF DEVELOPMENT AND ALL THE FACTORS THAT I JUST MENTIONED ARE BEING CONSIDERED AS WE CONTINUE TO DEVELOP OUR FISCAL YEAR AT TWENTY, TWENTY ONE BUDGET.

AND IF THERE'S NO QUESTION, THAT'S ALL I HAVE.

SAME QUESTION. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, CITY MANAGER.

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR. LORENZO CALHOUN HAS AN UPDATE FROM HUMAN RESOURCES.

GOOD MORNING, MADAM MAYOR.

GOOD MORNING, VICE MAYOR.

GOOD MORNING. MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION, LORENZO CALHOON, DIRECTOR OF HUMAN RESOURCES, THIS MORNING. I'LL SHARE WITH YOU A FEW OF THE ACTIONS WE'VE TAKEN FROM HUMAN RESOURCES TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR EMPLOYEES AS WELL AS THERE AS WELL AS THEIR WELL-BEING.

IN MARCH OF TWENTY TWENTY, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PASSED WHAT'S KNOWN AS THE FAMILY'S FIRST CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE ACT.

THAT IS AND IS AN AMENDMENT TO THE FAMILY MEDICAL LEAVE ACT, WHICH IS CURRENTLY IN PLACE.

THIS PARTICULAR AMENDMENT TOOK EFFECT APRIL 1ST OF TWENTY TWENTY.

AND TO THAT END, WE HAVE SHARED VARIOUS POSTERS WITH EMPLOYEES THROUGHOUT THE CITY AND CONSPICUOUS LOCATIONS WHERE EMPLOYEES CAN REVIEW THEM.

WE'VE ALSO SHARED THE INFORMATION REGARDING THE FAMILY'S FIRST CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE ACT ELECTRONICALLY WITH OUR EMPLOYEES ON MICROSOFT TEAM AS WELL AS ON THE CITY'S INTRANET.

WHAT THIS FAMILY'S FIRST GROANERS CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE ACT AMENDMENT ENCOMPASSES IS THREE PARTS. THE FIRST PART OF THE ACT ALLOWS EMPLOYEES THAT ARE PERSONALLY EXPERIENCING ANY CORONADO CORONAVIRUS RELATED ISSUES TO TAKE TWO WEEKS OF PAID LEAVE, WHICH ARE EXCLUSIVE OF ANY ACCRUED SICK LEAVE OR VACATION TIME THAT THEY HAVE TO ADDRESS THOSE CORONADO VIRUS RELATED ISSUES.

THE SECOND PORTION OF THAT PARTICULAR ACT ALLOWS EMPLOYEES TO TAKE OFF TIME FOR UP TO 10 WEEKS AT TWO THIRDS OF THEIR SALARY TO ADDRESS ANY PERSONAL CORONADO VIRUS RELATED ISSUES, OR TO CARE FOR SOMEONE IN THEIR HOUSEHOLD WHO MAY BE EXPERIENCING CORONAVIRUS RELATED ISSUES AND HAVE BEEN REQUIRED TO SELF QUARANTINE.

THE FINAL PART OF THE ACT ALLOWS EMPLOYEES TO TAKE UP TO 10 WEEKS OF LEAVE AT TWO THIRDS OF THEIR SALARY TO CARE FOR A SCHOOL AGED CHILD WHOSE SCHOOL MAY BE MAY BE IMPACTED OR CLOSED OR DAYCARE FACILITY DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS.

THIS PARTICULAR AMENDMENT TO THE FAMILY MEDICAL LEAVE ACT EXPIRES DECEMBER THIRTY FIRST OF TWENTY TWENTY. TO THAT END, OUR STAFF HAS CREATED AN ONLINE FORM WHICH ALLOWS EMPLOYEES TO FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR ACT AND THE LEAVE, AND AS WELL APPLY FOR THESE PARTICULAR LEAVES.

WE'VE ALSO CREATED A SEPARATE FORUM FOR MEMBERS OF MANAGEMENT TO TRACK ANY CORONADO VIRUS RELATED ISSUES SO THAT WE CAN BEST HELP OUT VARIOUS DEPARTMENTS IN DEALING WITH THE ISSUES. THE SECOND PORTION OF THAT WE ACTUALLY IMPLEMENTED THROUGHOUT THE CITY PRIOR TO IMPLEMENTATION OF THE FAMILY'S FIRST ACT WAS TO CREATE AN INTERIM GUIDELINE WHICH WE DISSEMINATED THROUGHOUT THE CITY, WHICH OUTLINES PROCESSES AND PROCEDURES WHICH SHOULD BE ADHERED TO BY EMPLOYEES OR MEMBERS OF MANAGEMENT AND REPORTING TO WORK.

THOSE MEASURES ENCOMPASS EMPLOYEES TAKING THEIR TEMPERATURES ONCE PRIOR TO THE BEGINNING OF THE WORK SHIFT AND THEN AGAIN MIDDAY OR MID SHIFT, BUT ALSO REQUIRES THEM TO TRACK ANY COLVERT RELATED ISSUES OR SYMPTOMS THEY MAY BE EXPERIENCING.

AND IN THE EVENT THEY ARE EXPERIENCING ANY COLVERT RELATED ISSUES, THEY ARE TO CONTACT THE HEALTH CARE PROVIDER.

WE'VE ALSO BEEN WORKING WITH CIGNA TO PROVIDE RESOURCES TO OUR EMPLOYEES ON EMAIL WAS SENT

[01:30:01]

DOWN CITY WIDE REGARDING WHAT WE CALL WHAT SIGNETS, CALLING THE COLVERT RELATED SYMPTOM RELATED TRACKER, WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO TAKE AN ASSESSMENT TO DETERMINE IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING COGAT RELATED ISSUES IN WHICH IT ACTUALLY REFERS YOU TO MEDICAL RESOURCES, SHOULD YOU BE EXPERIENCING THOSE PARTICULAR ISSUE ISSUES? WE'VE ALSO PUT TOGETHER A VIDEO AS A PARTNERSHIP WITH IT WAS A JOINT VENTURE FOR THOSE EMPLOYEES WHO ARE WORKING REMOTELY.

IT IS ENTITLED WORKING FROM HOME NORMAL FOR NOW.

AND IT WAS DISSEMINATED TO EMPLOYEES EARLIER THIS WEEK.

ALSO IN CONJUNCTION WITH I.T., WE HAVE CREATED A PAGE ON MICROSOFT TEAMS FOR TECHNOLOGY TIPS. IT'S CALLED THE TEAM TECHNOLOGY TEAMS CHANNEL.

WE ALSO CARE ABOUT THE MENTAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF OUR EMPLOYEES.

SO WE'VE PUT TOGETHER A COUPLE OF HEALTH AND WELLNESS INITIATIVES THROUGH CIGNA RIGHT NOW, WHICH WAS DISSEMINATED LAST MONTH TO ALL EMPLOYEES.

OR THEIR DEPENDENTS AS WELL AS EMPLOYEES, THERE IS NO CAUSE FOR TESTING OR TREATMENT, WHICH IS COMBAT RELATED, THAT WILL EXTEND THROUGH MAY THIRTY FIRST 20 20.

THERE'S ALSO A CULVERT 19 RESOURCE CENTER WHICH EMPLOYEES CAN ACCESS FOR THEM OR THEIR DEPENDENTS. THAT'S A TAMARAC.

GOT ME SLASH SIGNA AS WELL.

WE HAVE SENT OUT AN EMAIL TO ALL EMPLOYEES CITY WIDE OF FOUR DIFFERENT GUIDED MEDITATION PODCASTS THAT CAN BE ACCESSED BY EMPLOYEES ON AS WELL.

THIS WEEK, ON THURSDAY, WE WILL PRESENT AN ERGONOMICS ONE ON ONE ONLINE SEMINAR FOR EMPLOYEES WHO ARE WORKING FROM HOME.

AND EMPLOYEES SHOULD KNOW THAT THESE SEMINARS AND WEBINARS ARE MAKES THEM ELIGIBLE FOR POINTS TO OUR MOTIVATE ME PROGRAM, WHICH ALLOWS THEM TO WORK TOWARD DIFFERENT REWARDS AND TO MOTIVATE THE PROGRAM.

FINALLY, WE HAVE A MINDFULNESS 101 ONLINE SEMINAR, WHICH WILL TAKE PLACE ON THURSDAY.

THE INFORMATION WAS EMAILED TO ALL EMPLOYEES AND CAN BE ACCESSED ONLINE.

FINALLY, WE SHARE EMAIL WITH EMPLOYEES REGARDING VARIOUS FREE, PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES WHICH ARE ONLINE AND CAN BE ACCESSED REMOTELY.

WE'RE CURRENTLY WORKING WITH I.T.

TO PUT TOGETHER ADDITIONAL RESOURCES TO SHARE WITH EMPLOYEES TO PREPARE FOR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES.

AND PLEASE TO ALL EMPLOYEES.

REMEMBER, WITH THE UPCOMING HURRICANE SEASON UPON US, REMEMBER YOUR TRAINING.

THANK YOU, MR. MANAGER. AND IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS, I'LL TAKE THEM.

AT THIS TIME, I DO NOT SEND AN E-MAIL.

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU PUT.

BUT I NEED LIKE.

NO, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

YOU'RE HEREBY RECOGNIZED AS I WAS TRYING TO TELL YOU, THAT I CANNOT SEE YOU.

THANK YOU FOR RECOGNIZING THE CHAPLAIN ON THE BOTTOM LINE.

OR ARE YOU ABLE TO TELL ME.

THANK YOU. MY CHAIR ARE ABLE TO GIVE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT NEW HIRES THAT YOU MAY HAVE COMING ON STREAM, HOW YOU'RE DEALING WITH THOSE NEW HIRES.

ARE WE DOING VIRTUAL ONBOARDING AT THIS TIME? THANK YOU, MR. VICE MAYOR, FOR THAT QUESTION.

WHAT WE ARE DOING, WE ARE CONTINUING TO INTERVIEW EMPLOYEES OR POTENTIAL CANDIDATES AT THIS TIME, AND WE ARE WORKING TO BRING ON EMPLOYEES WHO ARE ALREADY IN THE PIPELINE IN THE HIRING PROCESS.

AND I AM GOING TO BE CONDUCTING ONLINE ONBOARDING MEETINGS IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS WITH EMPLOYEES WHO ARE IN THE PIPELINE FOR HIRING.

THANK YOU. YOU'RE WELCOME.

ALL RIGHT, CITY MANAGER, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU, MADAM. NEXT, WE'VE GOT NEXT WE'VE GOT LAURIE BUNDER WIFE TALKING ABOUT OUR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND SMALL BUSINESS ASSISTANCE EFFORTS.

GOOD MORNING, VICE MAYOR, VICE MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS, FOR THE RECORD, REFUNDER, COUNTRYWIDE, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT MANAGER.

I SEE IT MISSING A COUPLE OF PICTURES ON THE SLIDE.

BUT FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, I WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW I'VE BEEN FOCUSED ON MONITORING ALL SIDES OF THE ISSUE AS IT RELATES TO ECONOMIC IMPACT.

I'VE BEEN AND CONTINUE TO PARTICIPATE IN DAILY CALLS WITH SOME COMBINATION OF OUR LOCAL TAMARACK, NORTH LAUDERDALE CHAMBER, THE GREATER FORT LAUDERDALE CHAMBER, THE FLORIDA CHAMBER, ALONG WITH THEIR CHIEF ECONOMIST, AS WELL AS OUR FLORIDA ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

[01:35:04]

COUNCIL, THE GREATER FORT LAUDERDALE ALLIANCE, THE BROWARD COUNTY OFFICE OF ECONOMIC AND SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT, CAREER SOURCE, BROWARD, AND LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST, TRACKING NATIONAL DATA WITH THE ECONOMIC THE INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL.

I'VE BEEN WORKING CLOSELY TO GATHER RELEVANT PROGRAM INFORMATION AND WORKING CLOSELY WITH THEIR PEIO TO PUSH THE RESOURCES FOR OUR SMALL BUSINESSES OUT TO THE COMMUNITY AND INCLUDING TO OUR CHAMBER FOR ANY RESOURCES THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR SMALL BUSINESSES, BOTH PUBLISHED IN OUR RESOURCE GUIDE THAT SEWARD MENTIONED AND ALSO INCLUDED IN OUR DAILY UPDATES AND VIA OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, LEVANTE.

OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS FOR SMALL BUSINESSES, SOME OF THESE PROGRAMS AND RESOURCES WE PROMOTED AND I'VE COUNSELED I'VE BEEN COUNSELING SOME OF OUR BUSINESS OWNERS ABOUT, I WANTED TO VERY BRIEFLY HIGHLIGHT THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY, CAME OUT EARLY IN THIS CRISIS WITH THEIR EMERGENCY BRIDGE LOAN PROGRAM, WHICH AS OF LAST WEEK HAS RUN OUT OF FUNDING, AS HAS THE US SBA.

TEMPORARILY, KAHRIZAK FUNDING RAN OUT FOR SMALL BUSINESSES FOR THE MOST POPULAR AND MOST PROGRAM, WHICH THE MOST POPULAR BECAUSE THIS LOAN HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE FORGIVEN.

THE PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM THAT WE'VE ALL HEARD ABOUT, I BELIEVE AT THIS POINT, EVEN THOUGH THAT FEDERAL FUNDING RAN OUT THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY, ALMOST THREE HUNDRED FIFTY BILLION IN 12 DAYS, I'VE BEEN ADVISING BUSINESSES TO GO AHEAD AND GET THEIR PAPERWORK READY WITH THEIR SBA APPROVED LENDER BECAUSE IT'S ANTICIPATED, AS THE MAYOR MENTIONED, THAT CONGRESS OR THAT ANOTHER ROUND OF FUNDING WILL BE ISSUED VERY SOON.

ADDITIONALLY, THE SOUTH FLORIDA DISTRICT OFFICE OF THE SBA HAS AND HAS JUST RESUMED DOING THEIR DAILY WEBINAR CALLS FOR OUR BUSINESSES IN SOUTH FLORIDA.

THEY'RE DOING CALLS EVERY DAY, BOTH IN ENGLISH AND IN SPANISH, ADVISING ON FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR BUSINESSES.

ALL GREAT NEWS AND RESOURCES FOR OUR BUSINESS COMMUNITY.

I'VE ALSO BEEN PROMOTING OUR LOCAL SPDC SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER AT FSU WHO'VE GATHERED A CADRE OF FINANCE PROFESSIONALS TO ADVISE BUSINESSES ON FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE OPTIONS, BOTH STATE AND FEDERAL PROGRAMS. OUR BUSINESS OWNERS CAN GO ONLINE AND SET UP ONE ON ONE VIRTUAL MEETINGS AND CONSULTATIONS TO GET ADVICE.

THEY CAN ALSO CALL MY OFFICE AT ANY TIME.

OF COURSE, AS WELL. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WE'VE ALSO, I THINK, AS YOU ALL KNOW, BEEN WORKING TO SOME WATER SUPPORT OUR TAMARACK RESTAURANTS, I WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT OUR RESTAURANTS CAMPAIGN AND AS YOU KNOW, WE'VE BEEN ENCOURAGING OUR RESIDENTS TO ORDER TAKEOUT OR DELIVERY FROM OUR STRUGGLING RESTAURANT TOURS. AND I'D LIKE TO REALLY THANK YOU, MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS, FOR SEVERAL OF YOU WHO'VE HELPED PROCURE VIDEO FOOTAGE FOR A RESTAURANT PROMO CAMPAIGN, WHICH HAS BEEN VERY WELL RECEIVED. AND I KNOW OUR RESTAURANT OWNERS ARE SO APPRECIATIVE OF YOUR SUPPORT AND THE COMMUNITY'S SUPPORT DURING THIS TIME.

THOSE WHO REMAIN OPEN HAVE SEEN A BUSINESS DROP SIGNIFICANTLY BY 80 PERCENT OR MORE.

SO I KNOW THEY APPRECIATE THE PATRONAGE AND THIS PROMOTION.

THANK YOU FOR THANK YOU ALL FOR HELPING ON THAT CAMPAIGN.

WE'RE READY TO KEEP IT ROLLING, PROMOTING EVEN MORE RESTAURANTS AND ALSO BEGINNING TO PARTNER WITH OUR CHAMBER ON EXPANDING OUT INTO PROMOTING SOME OF OUR OTHER SMALL BUSINESSES THAT ARE OPEN AS WELL.

SO MORE TO COME ON THAT FRONT.

I THINK THIS IS JUST ONE WAY THAT WE CAN HELP TO SUPPORT OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES AT THIS TIME. AND IN FACT, I KNOW THAT THE GREATER FORT LAUDERDALE, I WANTED TO MENTION ANOTHER PROGRAM ROLLING OUT THE GREATER FORT LAUDERDALE ALLIANCE, THE CONVENTION AND VISITORS BUREAU, THE GREATER FORT LAUDERDALE CHAMBER, ALL WORKING TOGETHER NOW ON A PARTNERSHIP ACROSS SISTER AGENCIES, NOT JUST WITH BROWARD COUNTY, BUT ALSO DADE AND PALM BEACH COUNTIES TO ROLL OUT.

AND I LOVE LOCAL BUY AND SUPPORT, LOCAL BUSINESS MARKETING CAMPAIGN, 90 DAY MARKETING CAMPAIGN WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT TO PROMOTE AND SUPPORT OUR SOUTH FLORIDA BUSINESSES.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO TRACKING AND PLANNING FOR RECOVERY EFFORTS WITH OUR PARTNERS.

FINALLY, I WANTED TO MENTION THE EFFORTS THAT ARE UNDERWAY NOW TO TRACK AND PLAN FOR ECONOMIC RECOVERY.

OBVIOUSLY, EVEN THOUGH WE'RE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET, IT'S DEFINITELY NOT TOO EARLY TO BEGIN PLANNING FOR THAT.

AND AN ECONOMIC DOWNTURN OF THIS MAGNITUDE AND SPEED IS UNPRECEDENTED.

AND WHILE THIS IS CERTAINLY FIRST AND FOREMOST A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS AND RIGHTLY SO, IT IS UNPARALLEL. A VERY REAL AND VERY SERIOUS, AS WE ALL KNOW, ECONOMIC CRISIS TO NOT EVER

[01:40:05]

BEFORE. WE'VE SEEN SUCH A SHEER DROP OFF IN EMPLOYMENT NUMBERS AND IN ECONOMIC ACTIVITY SUCH AS THIS AND THE ECONOMIC FORECAST FOR RECOVERY VERY, VERY WIDELY ACROSS ECONOMISTS.

SOME ARE FORECASTING AS EARLY AS THE FIRST QUARTER OF NEXT YEAR OR WORST CASE SCENARIO, ESTIMATING AS FAR AS RECOVERY IN THE FOURTH QUARTER OF TWENTY FOUR.

TWENTY FOUR, WE SHALL SEE ON THAT FRONT.

BUT REGARDING ECONOMIC RECOVERY, I'VE BEEN FOLLOWING CLOSELY THE FLORIDA CHAMBERS CHIEF ECONOMISTS AND THEIR DATA AND NOW ALSO, OF COURSE, THE GOVERNOR'S NEW TASK FORCE TO REOPEN FLORIDA.

AND THUS FAR, THE DATA HAS SUPPORTED A PHASED AND RESPONSIBLE APPROACH TO REOPENING.

AND I KNOW THEY'RE WORKING ON THAT WITH THIS TASK FORCE.

THEY HAVE BEEN CAUTIONING THE FLORIDA CHAMBER NOT TO OPEN TOO EARLY AS SOME OTHER PLACES HAVE HONG KONG AND SINGAPORE OPENING TOO QUICKLY AND ENDING UP BACK WHERE WE STARTED WITH THE HEALTH CARE CRISIS.

SO IN TERMS OF PLANNING FOR THE RECOVERY WITH OUR PARTNERS, I'LL SAY IT'S BEEN VERY HEARTENING AND PROMISING TO SEE THE HEAVY COLLABORATION ACROSS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY GROUPS ACROSS THIS ENTIRE REGION.

THERE ARE A COUPLE OF KEY EFFORTS UNDERWAY THAT I WANTED TO BE SURE AND MENTION FROM THE COUNTY. THE SMALL BUSINESS AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OFFICES IS COLLABORATING AND WORKING HARD TO GET THE PENNY SIRTEX TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS FAST TRACKED.

AS YOU KNOW, 30 PERCENT OF THOSE CONTRACTS WILL GO TO BROAD SMALL BUSINESSES.

SO THEY'RE WORKING HARD TO BE READY TO ROLL THOSE PROJECTS OUT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO HELP JUMP START OUR ECONOMY.

ALSO, THE CAREER SOURCE ABROAD HAS BEEN THE HOST OF THEIR FIRST SEVERAL WEEKS AGO VIRTUAL JOB FAIR. AND THEY HAD ONE HUNDRED OR SO GIVE OR TAKE COMPANIES THAT PARTICIPATED AND THEY HAD EIGHT THOUSAND JOB SEEKING PARTICIPANTS PARTICIPATE IN THIS JOB FAIR VIRTUAL JOB FAIR. WHILE, AS WE KNOW, WHILE MANY INDUSTRIES ARE LAYING OFF, THERE ARE SEVERAL THAT ARE HIRING. SO WE'RE PROMOTING THOSE OPPORTUNITIES TO OUR RESIDENTS AS WELL AS CAREER SOURCE.

ABROAD, IN FACT, IS PLANNING THREE MORE VIRTUAL JOB FAIRS SCHEDULED FOR MAY AND ONE IN JUNE. SO WE'VE ALREADY POSTED VIA SOCIAL MEDIA THE NEXT ONE.

THAT'S COMING UP IN MAY.

AND WE'LL CONTINUE TO PROMOTE THOSE OPPORTUNITIES TO OUR RESIDENTS.

SO STAY TUNED FOR MORE ON THAT AS WELL.

AND FINALLY, WE'LL CONTINUE TO WORK AND PARTNER WITH OUR LOCAL TAMIRA CHAMBER TO CONTINUE TO PROMOTE OUR SMALL BUSINESSES AND THE ACCESS TO FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AND RESOURCES AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE.

AND THAT IS MY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT UPDATE FOR TODAY.

AND I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, CITY MANAGER, THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR.

JUST TO TO CLOSE.

YOU KNOW, WE ARE OBVIOUSLY GOING TO CONTINUE TO MONITOR AND TO ADAPT OUR APPROACHES TO THIS EVOLVING SITUATION.

WE HAVE TO REMAIN AGILE AND WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO ADAPT AND REMEMBER THAT WE'RE HERE TO KEEP THE COMMUNITY SAFE.

WE'RE HERE TO KEEP OUR EMPLOYEES SAFE.

WE'RE HERE TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES THAT WE NEED TO PROVIDE TO THE COMMUNITY.

AND WE NEED TO DO IT IN A WAY THAT MAKES SENSE.

AND AGAIN, THAT IS SAFE FOR THE COMMUNITY.

WE ARE WE ARE BEGINNING TO HEAR A LOT OF CONVERSATIONS ABOUT REOPENING, ABOUT REOPENING THE GOVERNMENT, ABOUT REOPENING THE ECONOMY.

YOU'RE HEARING THAT FROM OUR PRESIDENT.

YOU'RE HEARING IT FROM THE GOVERNOR.

YOU'RE HEARING IT FROM THE RECENTLY APPOINTED GOVERNORS TASK FORCE.

AND WE'RE HAVING THOSE CONVERSATIONS HERE LOCALLY AMONG THE FOUR SOUTHEAST FLORIDA COUNTIES. AND THESE ARE ALL GOOD THINGS.

I JUST WANT TO REPORT TO YOU THAT, YOU KNOW, NEVER IN MY 18 YEARS HERE IN SOUTH FLORIDA HAVE THE CITY MANAGERS AND THE COUNTY MANAGEMENT WORK SO CLOSELY TOGETHER TO MANAGE A CRISIS. OF COURSE, WE'VE NEVER SEEN A CRISIS OF THIS MAGNITUDE.

BUT IT IS IT'S REALLY HEARTENING THAT EVERYONE IS WORKING SO CLOSELY AND SHARING INFORMATION AND TRYING TO DO THINGS IN A UNIFORM WAY SO THAT CITIES ARE ALL ACTING AND BEHAVING IN SIMILAR WAYS AND PEOPLE KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT.

THAT'S TYPICALLY NOT BEEN THE CASE IN BROWARD COUNTY, ORTEIG OR PALM BEACH OR MONROE.

BUT IT IS TODAY AND IT'S A GOOD IT'S A GOOD THING.

AND I THINK THAT IT'S APPRECIATED VERY MUCH BY OUR, YOU KNOW, BY OUR RESIDENTS.

NOW, YOU KNOW, YOU'VE HEARD ABOUT THE NUMBERS.

[01:45:01]

WE'RE NOT CLOSE TO BEING DONE WITH THIS.

SOUTHEAST FLORIDA IS, IN FACT, THE MOST IMPACTED AREA IN THE STATE.

AND THAT MAY CAUSE OUR REOPENING TO BE SLOWER.

BUT WE'LL MANAGE THAT.

IT NEEDS TO BE SLOW.

IT NEEDS TO BE CAREFUL.

IT NEEDS TO BE DELIBERATE.

THERE NEEDS TO BE A CONCERTED EFFORT TO DO IT RIGHT.

AND, YOU KNOW, AGAIN, WE NEED TO WE REALLY NEED TO FOCUS ON ON THE SCIENCE AND MAKE SURE THAT WE KEEP PEOPLE SAFE AND THAT WE DON'T REOPEN TOO EARLY AND DO MORE DAMAGE TO TO THE ECONOMY AND TO OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES.

THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE.

I JUST WANT TO AGAIN REITERATE THAT THE CITY MANAGERS AND THE COUNTY MANAGEMENT ARE ALL WORKING TOGETHER TO TRY TO COME UP WITH SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEMS THAT WE SEE.

THE COUNTY IS GOING TO BE RECEIVING A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF MONEY UNDER THE KAHRIZAK, AND WE ARE PRESSING THEM TO SHARE THAT MONEY WITH WITH THE CITY'S HURRICANE SEASON.

AS YOU HEARD FROM OUR FIRE CHIEF IS UPON US.

AND THAT IS SIGNIFICANT IN TERMS OF IF WE HAVE AN EVENT, HOW WE DEAL WITH THAT EVENT, HOW WE RUN OUR EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTERS, HOW THE COUNTY RUNS SHELTERS, AND KEEPING IN MIND THAT TAMARACK RESIDENTS ARE SUPPOSED TO SHELTER IN PLACE DURING THE STORM.

FINALLY, YOU KNOW, THIS IS A GLOBAL PANDEMIC AND IT'S A GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS.

IT'S NOT JUST FLORIDA.

IT'S NOT JUST THE UNITED STATES.

THIS IS THE GLOBE AND THE GLOBAL ECONOMY.

AND WE ARE GOING TO BE IMPACTED BY THIS FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS IN TERMS OF THE THINGS THAT WE DO AND THE RESOURCES THAT WE HAVE.

AND WE'RE ALREADY BEGINNING TO ASSESS WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO MANAGE THAT.

AND I'LL LEAVE IT I'LL LEAVE IT THIS MORNING.

MADAM MAYOR, I APPRECIATE YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES ALLOWING US TO TAKE THE TIME TO GIVE YOU THIS REPORT THIS MORNING.

I REALIZE IT WAS LENGTHY, BUT AS YOU HEARD, THERE WAS A LOT THAT I FELT LIKE WE NEEDED TO UPDATE YOU ON THIS MORNING.

AND I APPRECIATE YOU GIVING US THE TIME.

OH, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

IN THE WHOLE EXECUTIVE TEAM AND STAFF FOR PUTTING IT TOGETHER, WE DEFINITELY NEEDED THE INFORMATION. AND I THINK HOPEFULLY IT IS HELPFUL FOR OUR RESIDENTS AND BUSINESS OWNERS WHO ARE LISTENING AND ACTUALLY FRIENDS OF THE CITY WHO ARE LISTENING AS WELL.

AT THIS TIME, WE'RE GOING TO GO TO A PUBLIC PARTICIPATION AND NORMALLY I DON'T READ THE SAME. BUT BECAUSE WE'RE DOING THAT A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY, I AM GOING TO READ THE PUBLIC PARTICIPATION.

I AM FOR THE RECORD, ANY MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC MAY SPEAK TO ANY ISSUE THAT IS NOT AGENDA FOR PUBLIC HEARING AT THIS MEETING.

SPEAKERS WILL BE LIMITED TO THREE MINUTES DURING THIS ITEM AND HAVE PUBLIC HEARINGS.

THERE WILL BE A 30 MINUTE AGGREGATE TIME LIMIT FOR THIS ITEM.

ANY MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC WISHING TO COMMENT PUBLICLY ON ANY MATTER, INCLUDING ITEMS ON THE AGENDA, MAY SUBMIT THEIR COMMENTS BY EMAIL TO CITY CLERK AT TOM RATDOG.

ALL COMMENTS SUBMITTED BY EMAIL THAT IF READ ORALLY ARE THREE MINUTES OR LESS TO BE READ INTO THE RECORD, ALL COMMENTS SUBMITTED BY EMAIL SHOULD BE MADE PART OF THE PUBLIC RECORD. PUBLIC COMMENTS MAY ALSO BE SUBMITTED ONLINE DURING THE MEETING OR THROUGH THE CITY'S FACEBOOK PAGE.

MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC MAY ALSO REGISTER ONLINE AT THAT TIME.

RAGS THAT SIGN UP INDIVIDUALS WHO REGISTER WILL BE CONTACTED BY TELEPHONE AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME DURING THE MEETING TO OFFER THEIR PUBLIC COMMENTS.

AND I KNOW I SAID THIS EARLIER, BUT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IT WAS REREAD.

CITY ATTORNEY, IS THERE ANYTHING YOU'D LIKE TO ADD BEFORE I GO TO THE PUBLIC COMMENTS? NO MATTER WHERE I THINK YOU'VE COVERED THE ITEM SPECIFICALLY, NOT ONLY IN THE AGENDA, BUT IN THE PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED NOTICE IN THE PROCEDURE ADOPTED BY THE COMMISSION AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MEETING. SO YOU'RE LEGALLY GOOD TO GO.

THANK YOU. EXCELLENT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND NOW I AM AWARE THAT THERE ARE COMMENTS FROM THE PUBLIC, SO I

[6. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION]

WILL ASK THE CITY CLERK TO PLEASE READ INTO THE RECORD THE WRITTEN COMMENTS FIRST.

GOOD MORNING, MADAM MAYOR AND COMMISSION.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. THE FIRST EMAIL COMES FROM MS. PAM DINKINS.

SHE STATE THE CITY OF TAMARAC SHOULD REALLY CONSIDER DEDUCTING ALL THE LATE FEES FOR ITS UTILITY SERVICES.

WITH THE SITUATION ADDED, AS IT IS, OUR LOSS OF WAGES AND INCOME IS BEYOND OUR CONTROL.

REGARDS A CONCERNED CITIZEN.

THE NEXT ONE COMES FROM ROBERT.

THE CITY HAS BEEN PUTTING UP BUFFER WALLS ALL OVER TAMARAC, IT SEEMS TO BE A HODGEPODGE AS TO WHERE THEY ARE BEING CONSTRUCTED.

WHAT WAS THE CRITERIA FOR WHERE THESE WALLS WOULD BE PLACED AND WHO MADE THE DECISION? MR. COMODO LIVES AT EIGHT SEVEN SEVEN TO NW SEVENTY FIFTH COURT IN TAMARACK.

CARLOS NUNEZ OF NINE OH NINE ONE LINE BAY BOULEVARD, NUMBER THREE OF SIX IN TAMARACK WEARING MASK IS NOW MANDATORY, EVEN INSIDE MY CONDO ELEVATOR.

[01:50:03]

YET THERE ARE NO PROTECTIVE, DISPOSABLE OR PERMANENT FACEMASK AVAILABLE ANYWHERE.

AND I MEAN ANYWHERE, NOT ON STORES, PHARMACIES, NOT ONLINE, UNLESS YOU WAIT SEVERAL WEEKS. SO WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO? WHERE CAN WE GET THESE MANDATORY FACEMASK? STEVE CALM ARE FIFTY FIVE, SENIOR CONDO HAS A CLUBHOUSE THAT HAS A SIGN STATING THAT IT IS CLOSED YESTERDAY TO TENANTS PLAYING POOL WITHOUT PROPER PROTECTION, NO MASK, NO GLOVES IN A SMALL ROOM. ANOTHER TENANT WITH WAS EXITING THE BATHROOM IN THE CLUBHOUSE, COMPLAINING HOW DIRTY IT WAS AFTER TAKING A SHOWER AFTER USING THE CLOSED POOL.

WHAT CAN BE DONE WHEN THE TENANT SAID THE PRINCE WAS TOO SMALL TO READ THE CLOSED SIGN AND DIDN'T HAVE COVID-19 INFORMATION TO KNOW THE RULES? WE KNOW THAT OUR MANAGEMENT COMPANY DOESN'T DO ANY SPECIAL CLEANING AROUND THE CONDO.

MR. BILL SPRONG, A SEVEN THREE ZERO SIX NORTHWEST, FIFTY NINE ST..

I HAVE A QUESTION I WOULD LIKE POSED AT THE NEXT MEETING.

I, LIKE MANY CITY RESIDENTS, ARE GOING STIR CRAZY, BEING TIED TO OUR HOUSES.

WOULD THE CITY CONSIDER OPENING A COLONY WEST FOR GOLF? IT WOULD BE EASY TO PRACTICE SOCIAL DEFEATED THING BY LIMITING ONE GOLFER PER CART.

SINCE THE COURSE IS CITY OWNED, IT WOULD ALSO GENERATE REVENUE FOR THE CITY.

THERE ARE ONLY THREE COUNTIES IN THE WHOLE STATE WHERE GOLF COURSES HAVE BEEN CLOSED.

AND FROM WHAT I CAN READ, HAVING GOLF IN MOST OF THE STATE HAS NOT POSED A PROBLEM.

RONALD CALLS IT AS A FULL TIME RESIDENT OF TAMARAC.

HAS THE CITY CONSIDERED EMINENT DOMAIN OF THE GOLF COURSES AVAILABLE ON THE WOODLANDS? RONALD COLES.

HE'S AT FOUR EIGHT ONE THREE BENNION LANE IN TAMARACK.

THIS ONE COMES FROM FACEBOOK.

THIS IS RAKOW LOPEZ ON MAY 2ND, HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION IS SCHEDULED TO TAKE PLACE IN TAMARAC. HAS THAT BEEN CANCELED OR IS IT STILL ON THE CALENDAR? I CAN'T GET ANYONE ON THE PHONE AND THEY DON'T HAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS LISTED ON THE WEBSITE. THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP.

THIS ONE COMES FROM FACEBOOK, CHARIN, REBECCA HAMRI.

SHOULD WE BE ABLE TO HEAR WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH YOUR CALL? I JUST HEAR STATIC.

FACEBOOK, LAVENIA DAPENA.

WHEN YOU START TO DISINFECTING THE CITY AND FINALLY, THE LAST ONE IS FROM WARREN WORNER, I HAVE TWO COMPLETE SETS OF HOSPITAL PPE, WHICH I WOULD LIKE TO DONATE.

WHO CAN RECEIVE THESE DONATIONS? AND THAT IS ALL I HAVE FOR YOU, MADAM.

THANK YOU FOR THE WRITTEN COMMENTS.

RIGHT. MAYOR BOLTON.

YES. AND MAYOR GOMEZ.

[02:05:01]

YES. PLEASE NOTE THAT IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

FIVE ZERO. EXCELLENT.

THANK YOU. NOW, MOVING ON TO NINE A ORDNANCES.

[a. TO2428 - Ordinance Increasing Filing Fees for Mayor and Commission Candidates An Ordinance of the City Commission of the city of Tamarac, Florida, amending Chapter 2, “Administration,” Article II, “City Commission,” of the City of Tamarac Code of Ordinance, by amending Section 2-26, “Filing of Notice of Intent to Run for Office; Filing Fee”; providing for conflicts; providing for codification; providing for severability; and providing for an effective date. Commission District(s): Citywide]

I'M FIRST READING TO GO TO FOUR TO EIGHT ORDINANCE INCREASING FILING FEES FOR MAYOR AND COMMISSION CANDIDATES.

CITY ATTORNEY, PLEASE READ THE TITLE FOR THE RECORD.

THANK YOU, MAYOR AND COMMISSIONER.

ON THE RECORD, THE TEMPORARY ORDINANCE NUMBER IS P.O.

TWENTY FOUR. TWENTY EIGHT NOW READS AS FOLLOWS FOR THE RECORD, AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY, TAMARACK, FLORIDA, AMENDING CHAPTER TWO REFERENCES ADMINISTRATION AT ARTICLE TWO, REFERENCING CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY TAMARACK CODE OF ORDINANCES BY AMENDING SECTION TWO DASH TWO SIX FILING OF NOTICE NOTICE OF INTENT TO RUN FOR OFFICE FILING FEE, FILING FEE, PROVIDING FOR CONFLICTS OF INTEREST, CODIFICATION, SEVERABILITY AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

TWENTY FOUR. TWENTY EIGHT IN COMMISSION.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I NEED A MOTION A SECOND TO APPROVE.

SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

SO DID CLARK, DO WE PLEASE DO YOUR PRESENTATION? GREAT. THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR AND COMMISSION.

I HAVE A VERY, VERY SHORT, CONCISE PRESENTATION.

THIS MORNING IS JUST AN OVERVIEW OF OUR CURRENT FILING FEES FOR BOTH THE MAYOR AND THE COMMISSION. CURRENTLY, IT'S TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS FOR THE MAYOR'S FEE TO RUN FOR ELECTION AND TEN DOLLARS FOR A COMMISSIONER.

THESE GUYS HAVE NOT BEEN CHANGED OR AMENDED SINCE NINETEEN SEVENTY FIVE.

WE DID A SHORT SURVEY OF SOME CITIES AND WHAT WE DID IS WE PROPOSED THAT WE INCREASE THESE FEES TO SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS FOR THE MAYOR AND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR A COMMISSIONER. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THIS FEE IS DUE IN FULL FROM A CANDIDATE'S CAMPAIGN ACCOUNT DURING THE QUALIFYING PERIOD, THE QUALIFYING PERIOD THIS YEAR WILL BE JUNE 8TH THROUGH JUNE THE 12TH, AND THEY STARTED TONIGHT AT NOON ON THE MONDAY AND NOON ON FRIDAY.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

LIKE I SAID, WE DID REACH OUT TO ALL OF THE CITIES AND OF THE RESPONSES THAT WE GOT BACK NORTH LAUDERDALE, CORAL SPRINGS, PARKLAND AND SUNRISE ARE FIVE PERCENT OF THE ANNUAL SALARY OF THE OFFICE BEING SOUGHT IN HOLLYWOOD, LAUDERDALE LAKES IN PEMBROKE PINES.

IT'S THREE PERCENT OF THE ANNUAL SALARY.

AND FOR ALL OF THE OTHER CITIES, THEY RANGE BETWEEN TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS AND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR THEIR QUALIFYING FEE.

NEXT LINE, AT THIS POINT, I'LL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE AT THIS TIME.

I AM NOT SAYING ACTUALLY, I NEED TO ASK YOU OF ANY PUBLIC COMMENTS.

I DON'T HAVE ANY COMMENTS AT THIS TIME EITHER, MAYOR.

ALL RIGHT, GREAT. AND I WILL.

I SEE THAT. MR. FISHMAN, PLEASE PROCEED.

THANK YOU. I WANTED TO FIND OUT IF WE HAVE LOOKED AT ALSO RAISING THE AMOUNT OF PETITIONS NEEDED.

ONE WORD, IF YOU'RE LOOKING AT EITHER DOING THE FLAT FEE OR THE PETITION GATHERING, DID WE LOOK AT INCREASING THE AMOUNT OF PETITIONS? GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONER FISHMAN.

THE ONE PERCENT REQUIRED A NUMBER OF PETITIONS IS ACTUALLY A STATE LAW.

IT IS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THE CITY OF TAMARAC, I UNDERSTAND.

BUT THAT'S THE LAW.

THE WAY THE STATUTE READS SAYS IT SHOULD BE AT LEAST ONE PERCENT OF THE REGISTERED VOTERS. IF THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT YOU WANTED TO BRING FORWARD, WE CAN CERTAINLY DISCUSS THAT. AND INCORPORATED AS PART OF THE CODE, I WOULD HAVE TO WORK WITH THE CITY ATTORNEY ON THAT, BUT THAT WOULD BE A DECISION ON BEHALF OF THE COMMISSION.

OK, BECAUSE PART OF WHY WE'RE DOING THE INCREASE IS TO COMPENSATE FOR THE COST OF THE FILING SOFTWARE, CORRECT? CORRECT. AND NOTE THAT WE DO NOT TAKE IN ANY REVENUE FROM THE PETITIONS.

THE SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS OFFICE TAKES IN THE REVENUE FROM THE SIGNATURE PROCESS.

I UNDERSTAND THAT.

BUT IF WE'RE LOOKING AT IF A CANDIDATE IS LOOKING AT PAYING A FEE OR ONLY NEEDING ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY PETITIONS TO MOLLIFY.

I THINK WE NEED TO LOOK AT THAT PETITION THRESHOLD AS WELL, BECAUSE AS A CANDIDATE, IT'S PROBABLY LESS COSTLY TO GO PRINT OUT ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY PETITIONS AND FILE THOSE INSTEAD. CERTAINLY, IF THAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE US TAKE A LOOK AT AND POSSIBLY BRING FORWARD, I CAN LOOK AT THAT.

I DEFER TO THE CITY ATTORNEY ON THIS.

IF HE HAS ANYTHING, HE'D LIKE TO ADD MY ATTORNEY BRIEFLY IF I CAN.

COMMISSIONER FISHMAN, THROUGH THE CHAIR, THE ONE PERCENT FIGURE IS A STATUTORY FEE PROVIDED FOR IN THE STATE ELECTION CODE.

WHAT YOU'RE REFERRING TO IS THE THE THE THE CALCULUS FOR THE NUMBER OF PETITIONS.

[02:10:05]

WE CAN LOOK AT THAT ISSUE.

AND THAT MAY BE SOMETHING THAT CAN BE REGULATED LOCALLY ON THAT ON THAT BASIS.

AND WE CAN LOOK AT THAT BETWEEN FIRST AND SECOND READING AS THE IF THE CONDITIONS ARE DIRECT. THROUGH THE CHAIR, I THINK IT'S SOMETHING WE NEED TO LOOK AT IF WE'RE GOING TO INCREASE THE FEE. WE SHOULD ALSO INCREASE THE THRESHOLD FOR THE PETITIONS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I THINK AT THIS POINT, WELL, IF WE CAN, WE'LL HAVE A DISCUSSION ON THAT SECOND ITEM WILL VOTE FIRST ON THE FIRST ITEM.

AND THEN AS THE CITY ATTORNEY HAS STATED, IF WE HAVE CONSENSUS ON THE SECOND ITEM THROUGH OUR DISCUSSION, WE'LL GO FORWARD AND ASK THE CITY ATTORNEY AND THE CITY CLERK TO REVIEW THAT FOR A SECOND READING.

OK, YOU'RE GOOD.

ALL RIGHT. VICE MAYOR BOLTON, YOU'RE RECOGNIZED.

THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. CITY CLERK.

YOU SAID THAT A COUPLE OF OTHER CITIES JUST SLAPPED RATES.

SLATTERY'S SO WE'RE GOING TO WE'RE GOING TO GO TO.

FORM. YOU CURRENTLY VICE MAYOR, YOU CURRENTLY HAVE A FLAT FEE OF TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS FOR THE MAYOR AND TEN DOLLARS FOR THE COMMISSION, AND WHAT IS BEING PROPOSED IS ALSO A FLAT FEE OF SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS FOR THE MAYOR AND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR COMMISSIONERS. OK, SO AND THEN THERE'S ANOTHER PART TO THIS, ANOTHER PART OF IT WAS, WAS THERE ANOTHER THEME THAT WE HAVE TO TODAY? THERE IS A STATE FEE THAT IS REQUIRED FOR ALL CANDIDATES THAT CANNOT BE WAIVED.

THAT IS ONE PERCENT OF THE ANNUAL SALARY OF WHATEVER OFFICE THAT IS BEING SOUGHT AND THOSE THAT IS ALSO PAID FROM YOUR CAMPAIGN ACCOUNT.

AND THEN THAT MONEY IS ACTUALLY FORWARDED TO THE STATE.

OK, SO IT WOULD BE ONE PERCENT OF THE SALARY, PLUS FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR THE FLAT FEE TO THE TO THE CLERK, CORRECT.

OK, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU TO THE COMMISSION, TO THE VICE MAYOR.

VERY BRIEFLY, MR. VICE MAYOR, THAT ONE PERCENT IS A CFP IN THE STATE ELECTION CODE ITSELF, WHICH IS NOT CHANGEABLE. AS YOU KNOW FROM OUR DISCUSSIONS.

IT IS WHAT IT IS. 20 YEAR TERM.

THANK YOU. I SEE NO OTHER PERSON ON THE COMMISSION WISHES TO SPEAK, SO I'M GOING TO ASK THIS CITY ATTORNEY.

THERE HAS BEEN STICKWORK.

THERE'S BEEN A REQUEST FOR A REVIEW OF THE.

SIGNATURE PART OF IT, AND WE DON'T HAVE ANY CONSENSUS OR DISCUSSION ON IT RIGHT NOW, SO IF YOU PUT THIS MAYBE ON A WORKSHOP ITEM FOR DISCUSSION AT A LATER TIME, IF WE'RE HAVING A WORKSHOP, WILL YOU PLEASE REVIEW THE PROCEDURES AND SEE WHAT WE NEED TO DO NEXT IN ORDER TO ADDRESS THE CONCERN THAT AN ERROR, IF YOU WILL, THE OPTION OF HAVING A WORKSHOP OR A PUBLIC REVIEW AT SOME LATER MOMENT IS SUFFICIENT.

THE DOCUMENT, AS PROPOSED, WILL, IF APPROVED BY THE COMMISSION TODAY, WILL GO ON FOR A SECOND READING. TO THE EXTENT THAT THERE'S A DESIRE TO GIVE THE WORKSHOP A DISCUSSION ABOUT THE PETITION PROCESS, WE CAN CERTAINLY DO SOME HOMEWORK BETWEEN THEN IN THE SETTING OF A WORKSHOP. OK.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH AT THIS TIME.

PLEASE CALL THE ROLL VICE MAYOR BOLTON.

YES, COMMISSIONER GELLIN.

YES, THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER FISHMAN, YES, COMMISSIONER PLECO, YES, AND MAYOR GOMEZ, YES, PLEASE NOTE TO YOU. TWENTY FOUR TWENTY EIGHT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY ON FIRST READING FIVE TO ZERO AFTER THINKING NINE A.M..

HERE IS WHAT I NEED YOU TO.

IF YOU WOULD PLEASE BE ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN.

ON THE LEFT SIDE. YES.

IF YOU SEE IT, YOU SEE.

WELL, IT JUST POPS UP NOW.

OK, WE'RE BEEN USING THE PHONE, BUT I SEE YOUR ANGRY FACE, SO GO AHEAD.

THAT'S NOT YOUR FACE. IT'S YOUR, I GUESS, A PUNCHING THING.

GO AHEAD, VICE MAYOR.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, BUT YOUR EMOJI.

OH, PLEASE, JUSTIN. MAYBE THAT'S SOMEBODY ELSE'S EMOJI.

I'M NOT SURE WHAT YOU'RE REFERRING TO IF YOU DO MY MOM WORK.

JUST A POSSIBLE QUESTION.

WE ARE, AS FISHMAN NOTED, WE ARE RAISING THE KIDS BECAUSE OF THE SOFTWARE THAT IS BEING USED, IF IT PLEASES THE CHAIR.

CAN YOU JUST ELABORATE ON HOW THAT SYSTEM WILL WORK?

[02:15:03]

IS AN ONGOING NEED EVERY YEAR? I JUST HAD A QUICK QUESTION ON THAT COMMENT AFTER THE VOTE, SO I WOULD LIKE THAT CLARIFIED. VICE MAYOR, I'M GOING TO ASK THE CITY CLERK, IS THIS SOMETHING FOR YOUR NEXT ITEM? IT IS, MA'AM.

OK, SO VICE MAYOR, IF YOU'LL HOLD YOUR QUESTION, SHE'LL ANSWER IT.

I BELIEVE IN THE NEXT ONE. IF NOT, YOU'LL WE DO AN EMERGING AND THEN I'LL BE HAPPY TO RECOGNIZE YOU. OK, WE'RE NOW MOVING OVER TO NINE B, T O TO FOUR TO NINE ORDINANCE

[b. TO2429 - Ordinance Amending the Code to include Mandatory Electronic Campaign Treasury Reporting An Ordinance of the City Commission of the City of Tamarac, Florida, amending Chapter 2, “Administration,” Article II, “City Commission,” of the City of Tamarac Code of Ordinances, by creating Section 2-36, “Campaign Finance Reports”; providing for conflicts; providing for codification; providing for severability; and providing for an effective date. Commission District(s): Citywide]

AMENDING THE CODE TO INCLUDE MANDATORY ELECTRONIC CAMPAIGN.

TREASURY REPORTING CITY CLERK.

PLEASE READ INTO THE TITLE, INTO THE RECORD.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR AND COMMISSIONER, IF YOU WILL, THE ITEMS IN THE BACK UP ON THE HARD BOOK AND ALSO ON THE INTERNET.

IT IS TEMPORARY ORDINANCE NUMBER TWO.

TWENTY FOUR, TWENTY NINE.

IT READS AS FOLLOWS FOR THE RECORD IS AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY, TAMARAC, FLORIDA, AMENDING CHAPTER TWO REFERENCES ADMINISTRATION AT ARTICLE TWO, REFERENCING CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY.

TAMARA ECHOED ORDINANCES BY CREATING A NEW SECTION TWO DASH THIRTY SIX TITLE CAMPAIGN FINANCE REPORTS PROVIDING FOR CONFLICTS, CLARIFICATION, PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

THAT'S TWENTY FOUR TWENTY NINE ON THE RECORD FOR DISCUSSION THAT AMERICAN.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

CAN I GET A MOTION A SECOND FOR APPROVAL PLEASE.

DILMA. SECOND, I'M SURE THAT THAT WOULD NOT BE A MOTION TO EXCLUDE THIS WOULD BE A MOTION TO MOVE THE ITEM TO THE TABLE FOR DISCUSSION IF WE'RE APPROVING, BUT THAT WOULD BE BACKWARDS. VICE MAYOR, YOU HAVE THE RULES IN FRONT OF YOU.

I'M DOING WHAT THEY ARE.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR THOUGHTS.

WE'VE GOT A MOTION AND A SECOND FOR APPROVAL.

PLEASE, CITY CLERK, YOUR ATTENTION, YOUR AND YOU KNOW, THERE'S A QUESTION ON THE TABLE, PLEASE ANSWER. WE DON'T HAVE A PRESENTATION FOR THIS ONE.

THIS IS JUST A PUBLIC POLICY DECISION ON BEHALF OF THE COMMISSION TO MOVE FORWARD WITH ELECTRONIC CAMPAIGN TREASURER REPORT FILING.

CURRENTLY, MUNICIPALITIES ARE NOT REQUIRED TO FILE ONLINE, BUT GIVEN THE SITUATION WITH THE CORONAVIRUS, IT'S PROBABLY AS AN IMPETUS FOR US TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS.

THIS WILL ACTUALLY STREAMLINE THE REPORTING PROCESS MONTHLY FOR ALL CANDIDATES.

IT WOULD ALLOW FOR THE SYSTEM TO BE LOGGED IN WITH SAFEGUARDS IN PLACE THAT REPORTS COULD BE RECEIVED AT MIDNIGHT ON THE REGULAR REPORTING DATE.

THERE ARE SEVERAL OPTIONS FOR VENDORS AVAILABLE FOR SUCH A PROGRAM.

THE ONE THAT I HAD PROVIDED TO YOU IS PROBABLY THE EASIEST TO GET INTO AND PROBABLY THE QUICKEST. IT'S THE ONE THAT'S USED BY ALL 67 COUNTIES IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA TO THE VA SYSTEM. IT TIES INTO THE E THE SYSTEM AS WELL FOR THE VOTING PROCEDURES.

IT IS BEING PROVIDED TO US THROUGH THE SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS AND HAD AN OPTION TO OPT IN TO INTO THE SYSTEM.

SEVERAL CITIES HAVE ALREADY TAKEN PART IN THAT.

THEY ARE ALREADY DOING IT.

SO THIS WOULD JUST GIVE US THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE THAT MANDATORY FOR ALL CANDIDATES MOVING FORWARD. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND BEFORE WE GO TO THE QUESTION POSED, CITY CLERK, DO WE HAVE ANY PUBLIC WISHING TO SPEAK ON THIS MATTER? WE DO NOT.

THANK YOU, CITY ATTORNEY.

YOU ARE BEING ASKED TO CLARIFY THE PROCEDURES THAT HAVE BEEN PUT INTO PLACE AND CIRCULATED THROUGH THIS COMMISSION PRIOR TO THIS MEETING.

WOULD YOU PLEASE DO SO? THE MOTION TO APPROVE IS SIMILAR TO THE MOTION TO PLACE ON THE TABLE FOR CONSIDERATION.

IT HAS THE SAME LEGAL MEANING IN THE CONTEXT OF YOUR DISCUSSION.

IF YOU GET A MOTION THE SECOND ON THE ITEM, IT IS DISCUSSABLE, REVIEWABLE AND MEASURE BY THE CHAIRS ALLOWING DEBATE, DISCUSSION AND POTENTIAL THIRD PARTY CONVERSATIONS UNDER THE STATUTE REFERENCING PUBLIC COMMENT.

SO THE END RESULT IS THE SAME.

HOWEVER YOU PROCEED, IT IS THE PREROGATIVE OF THE COMMISSION.

GREAT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

VICE MAYOR, HAS YOUR QUESTION BEEN ANSWERED REGARDING THE FEES? THE ORIGINAL QUESTION ASKED.

THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR.

THE SEAS THAT ARE BEING CHARGED FOR THAT'S THE FLAT FEE OF FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS, WE ARE CHARGING THAT FEE BECAUSE OF THE NEW SOFTWARE THAT YOU'RE GOING TO BE USING. IS THAT THE ANNUAL FEE OR IS IT JUST A ONE TIME FEE? SO IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT THE FEES FOR THE SOFTWARE LIKE ANY OTHER SOFTWARE, SO WE HAVE AN OPT IN PRICE WHICH HAS BEEN PROVIDED AND THIS JUST HAPPENS TO BE THE SOFTWARE THAT'S ON THE TABLE. THERE ARE OTHER ONES THAT WE CAN LOOK AT AND WE'RE CERTAINLY GOING TO HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE CONTRACT PROCESS FOR THAT.

BUT THE OPT IN PRICE FOR THE ONE FROM THE SUPERVISOR ELECTIONS IS FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS AND THEN IT'S AN ANNUAL FEE OF AROUND NINETEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS PER YEAR TO CONTINUE WITH

[02:20:02]

THAT SOFTWARE IN THE MAINTENANCE.

THERE ARE PROVISIONS IN THE STATE STATUTE THAT ALLOW FOR A CITY TO EXPEND PUBLIC FUNDS IN ORDER TO PURCHASE THE SOFTWARE.

AND THAT IS ONE OF SIX POINT SEVEN TO A.

OK, AND THE FEES.

THE THE THE THE THE SOFTWARE IS BEING WE'RE LOOKING INTO THE SOFTWARE AND IT'S YOU, THE THE ALL THE CITIES THAT HAVE OPTED INTO USING THE SOFTWARE OVER WHAT OTHER CITIES ARE USING THE SAME SOFTWARE.

CORRECT. SO THERE ARE ABOUT FOUR OR FIVE CITIES THAT HAVE ALREADY OPTED IN, THOSE BEING COCONUT CREEK, SOUTHWEST RANCHES, LAUDERHILL, PARKLAND, HOLLYWOOD IS GOING TO OPT IN HERE SHORTLY AND I BELIEVE FORT LAUDERDALE HAS ALREADY OPTED IN.

OK, HAVE WE BENCHMARKED OUR NEW FIVE HUNDRED DOLLAR FILINGS WITH THE OTHER CITIES, COCONUT CREEK SOFTWARE SUCH AS HOLLYWOOD, ETC., HAVE WE BENCHMARKED OUR FEES WITH THEIR FEES TO SEE IF IT IS COMPARABLE WITH THEIR CITY? VICE MAYOR BOLTON? WE DID PROVIDE SOME INFORMATION IN THE BACKUP MATERIAL THAT THE CITY OF COCAINE HAD ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS.

PARKLAND HAS A PEAK OF FIVE PERCENT OF THEIR ANNUAL SALARY FOR THEIR FILING FEE.

FORT LAUDERDALE, I BELIEVE, IS A FLAT FEE.

AND IT IS ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS.

AND SOUTHWEST RANCHES IS ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR THEIR FLAT FEES.

AND ALSO THE BENEFIT OF THE PUBLIC, I DO HAVE THE BACKUP INFORMATION.

I CAN SEE THE INFORMATION THAT YOU'RE REFERRING TO.

I READ IT OVER EARLY LAST NIGHT.

WHAT'S THE BENEFIT OF THE PUBLIC? THEY DON'T SEE THE LACK OF INFORMATION.

THEY CAN PROBABLY GO ONLINE, BUT THEY, AS RON WASSERMAN'S SAID, THAT IT'S VERY HARD TO KEEP UP WITH TECHNOLOGY SO THEY MAY NOT HAVE THE INFORMATION READILY AS WE DO.

SO, THANK YOU. THAT'S A PLEASURE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I.

VICE MAYOR, I'M SORRY, VICE MAYOR JUST SPOKE.

I HAVE COMMISSIONER PLAKA TO HAVE THE QUESTION.

I DO. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

JENNIFER, DID I GIVE YOU CORRECTLY THAT THE SOFTWARE THAT WE'RE LISTING HERE FOR FOUR THOUSAND NINETY DOLLARS, WE ARE GOING TO LOOK INTO OTHER VERSIONS OF THE SOFTWARE PLECO? WE CAN CERTAINLY DO THAT.

THIS IS THE EASIEST ONE TO OPT INTO AND THIS ONE IS THE MOST READILY AVAILABLE.

THERE ARE OTHER SOFTWARE PROVIDERS AND WE WILL CERTAINLY HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE CONTRACT PROCESS. I PERSONALLY HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH THE V.R.

SYSTEMS AS WHEN I WAS THE CITY CLERK IN PARKLAND.

WE ACTUALLY IMPLEMENTED IT WHEN THEY WERE WHEN WE WERE THERE AND IT HAS BEEN VERY, VERY SUCCESSFUL FOR THEIR CANDIDATES.

IT IS ALSO THE EXACT SAME SOFTWARE THAT ALL OF OUR COUNTY CANDIDATES ARE USING AT THE BROWARD SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS, AS WELL AS ALL OF OUR STATE CANDIDATES AT THE TALLAHASSEE LEVEL.

OK, THE REASON I WAS ASKING THIS IS IT I'M WONDERING IF THERE'S NOT A CONSISTENCY AMONG THE CITIES, ARE WE GOING TO GET INTO COMPUTER PROBLEMS WITH THIS? EACH EACH ONE OF THE CITIES HOSTS THE SOFTWARE INDEPENDENTLY, HOWEVER, IT'S A PACKAGE, SO NOT EVERY CITY HAS TO SIGN IN OR OPT INTO THE INTO THE PROCESS.

SO THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE'RE OFFERING TO YOU TO CANDIDATES HERE IN TAMARACK.

CORAL SPRINGS MAY NOT OFTEN, BUT IT'S BEING OFFERED TO TAMARAC AS AN OPTION IF IT'S SOMETHING THAT YOU'RE INTERESTED IN AND MAKING IT MANDATORY.

I DON'T NECESSARILY KNOW IF WE'RE GOING TO GET INTO COMPUTER PROBLEMS. I CAN'T FORESEE THAT AT THIS TIME.

I CERTAINLY WOULD TRUST YOUR JUDGMENT.

AND LEVANT'S. I DON'T HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THAT.

I'M ASSUMING SOMEONE WILL HAVE SOME SORT OF TRAINING AND THE ANNUAL RECURRING FEE OF TWENTY SEVEN EIGHTEEN.

I ASSUME THAT'S PROBABLY GOING TO GO UP EVERY YEAR AS WELL.

I THINK WITH MOST CONTRACTS, COMMISSIONER FLOCCO, I THINK THAT WE CAN ANTICIPATE THAT THEY WILL GO UP A LITTLE BIT AND I THINK THAT'S INCREMENTALLY TO KEEP THE VERSIONS OF THE SOFTWARE UP TO DATE AND WORKING CORRECTLY AT THE DEVELOPER LEVEL.

THANKS VERY MUCH, JIM.

[02:25:02]

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER PLECO.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER. JOHN, YOU HAVE A QUESTION, PLEASE.

DO YOU WANT ME TO READ IT IN? I DON'T REALLY HAVE A QUESTION.

WELL, I'M FINE WITH THE SOFTWARE.

I THINK IT'S ABOUT TIME WE UPGRADE AND JUST WANT TO KNOW WHEN WHEN WE'LL GET TRAINING ON THE SOFTWARE. THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER GALáN, WE'LL CERTAINLY PROVIDE YOU WITH A PRETTY HEFTY PACKET WITH SOME DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS, AND THEN IF WE'LL BE ABLE TO HELP YOU THROUGH ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE, IF THIS IS THE SOFTWARE THAT WE GO WITH, I CAN TELL YOU IT'S VERY USER FRIENDLY AND YOU WILL APPRECIATE USING IT AT THE END OF THE DAY VERSUS DOING THE PAPER ONES DROP FEATURE.

LIKE I HAD SAID, THE COUNTY COMMISSION CURRENTLY USES IT AND IT'S VERY, VERY EASY TO USE IF WE GO WITH VR SYSTEMS. AND WE PASSED WE APPROVED THIS ON SECOND READING AT OUR NEXT MEETING.

WE CAN PROBABLY ANTICIPATE HAVING IT IN PLACE MAYBE JULY FOR THE JULY FOUR REPORT IN AUGUST. AND SO WE'LL BE ABLE TO ELECTRONICALLY SIGN UP TO MANUALLY SIGN AND BRING IT IN.

IT'S DONE BY A PEN.

NO, YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO BRING IT IN AND IT'S TIME STAMPED.

THAT'S GOOD. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

SO JUST A COUPLE OF ITEMS FOR CLARIFICATION, THE FIRST ITEM WE DISCUSSED TODAY THAT FIVE HUNDRED OR SEVEN FIFTY MONEY THAT COMES IN IS A ONE TIME FEE FOR WHEN YOU FIGHT, YOU DON'T DO IT AGAIN UNTIL YOU FILE AGAIN FOUR YEARS LATER FOR WHEN YOU'RE RUNNING.

AND THEN THIS IS AN ANNUAL COST, THAT IS.

A LITTLE BIT OFFSET, OBVIOUSLY, BUT NOT ONE HUNDRED PERCENT OFFSET, BUT WE ARE LEGALLY ALLOWED TO USE FUNDS IN ORDER TO PURCHASE THIS EQUIPMENT AND THIS IS AN EQUIPMENT THAT IS USED. SO IT SEEMS 67 COUNTIES.

SO WE WOULD BE SIXTY EIGHT.

SO THAT WOULD BE THE WHOLE ENTIRE STATE OF FLORIDA AND IT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD MAKE IT SEAMLESS AND EASY AND WELL WORTH IT.

SO WITH THAT, I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO CALL THE ROLL, PLEASE, METAMORA.

JUST A QUICK COMMENT ON THE DOCUMENT HERE.

Selection of Public Art Committee recommended Artist Michele Gutlove’s design for Colony West Suspended Ceiling Sculpture The Director of Community Development recommends that the Mayor and City Commission accept the Public Art Committee’s recommendation and select Artist Michele Gutlove’s design for the Suspended Ceiling Sculpture for the Colony West Clubhouse project.]

RECOMMENDATION.

MICHEL GOT LOVES.

DESIGN FOR COLONY WAS SUSPENDED CEILING SCULPTURE.

[02:30:02]

I BELIEVE WE HAVE BETH ROBERTS AND GEORGE GATSON ON THE LINE FOR A PRESENTATION, PLEASE.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, PLEASE STAND BY.

OK. THANK YOU.

YEAH, YEAH, I'M SEEING GEORGE, AND THEN CAN YOU ALSO PUT THE PRESENTATION UP, PLEASE, THE POWERPOINT? GOOD TO SEE YOU, GEORGE.

GOOD TO SEE YOU AS WELL. AND CAN YOU SEE ME ALSO NOW, BUT I'M SURE IT WILL BE GOOD.

ALL RIGHT, SO WE DON'T NEED A PRESENTATION UP AND THEN BACK IN GEORGE, YOU CAN BEGIN.

AND BETH, CAN YOU SEE THE PRESENTATION ON YOUR OWN? NO, I CANNOT.

I SEE YOU, THOUGH.

I JUST SAW YOU.

WHERE'S THE PRESENTATION? THERE USED TO BE YOU SHOULD BE SEEING IT NOW.

IT'S ON THE SCREEN, OK? IT IS NOT ON MY SCREEN, BUT I KNOW IT BY HEART.

LET'S SEE IF I GOT IT THERE.

NOW LET'S SEE IF I HAVE IT UP HERE.

GALLERY VIEW. NOW, LABONGE, IS THERE ANY WAY I CAN SEE IT ON THE SCREEN? WHY I'M NOT SEEING IT ON THE SCREEN OR JAMES.

I KNOW IT BY HEART SO AND I'M GOING TO START OUT.

I DON'T SEE IT, BUT I FEEL THAT I CAN STILL SEE SOME THINGS AND THEN I'M GOING TO GIVE IT OVER TO GEORGE. OK, WE HAD THREE SEMIFINALISTS FOR PROJECT FOR THE INSURANCE LOBBY TO THE CLUBHOUSE AT COLONIE WEST.

AND THERE SHOULD BE AN IMAGE UP THERE SHOWING THE CONSTRUCTION PICTURE OF THE PROGRESS.

AND THAT WAS TAKEN A WHILE AGO.

SO IT MIGHT BE EVEN MORE COMPLETE AT THIS POINT.

AND WE HAD DECIDED THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO PUT A CALL OUT FOR A SUSPENDED CEILING SCULPTURE THAT PROVIDED SOME LIGHTING AND THAT PERHAPS WE ALSO ENGAGE THE FLOOR, ENGAGE THE WALLS THROUGH SOME SORT OF A REFLECTION.

SO THE COMMITTEE SELECTED THREE SEMIFINALISTS AND WE'RE HERE TO SHOW YOU THEIR AIR PROJECTS. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, WHICH SHOULD BE UP.

IS THAT GEORGE? IS THAT MARK AYLING? IS HE UP OR THE OTHER GUY? WELL, IF I IF I MAY, THE.

YEAH, WHAT? GO ON.

OK, LOOK, MAN, IF YOU GO BACK TO THE PREVIOUS SLIDES, PLEASE, THIS IS A REPRESENTATION, A PHOTOGRAPH OF THE ACTUAL INTERIOR OF WHERE THE ARTWORK FOR CALLING ME WAS THE CLUBHOUSE WOULD GO JUST TO GIVE YOU A SENSE OF DIRECTION AS YOU'RE ENTERING THE FRONT ENTRANCE, HEADING EAST, IF YOU WILL.

YOU'LL SEE TO YOUR LEFT HERE THE FRONT ENTRANCE OF THAT PARTICULAR LOBBY SPACE AND THEN TO THE RIGHT AS YOU GET INSIDE.

THIS SHOWS MORE THAT SHOWS THE SOUTH WALL.

AND AT THE VERY TOP THERE, THE CEILING IS ACTUALLY WHERE WE ARE GOING TO BE.

HAVE A NICE WORK OF ART INSTALLED IN THAT PARTICULAR SPACE.

JUST TO BACK UP FOR A MOMENT, THE CALL TO ARTISTS WENT OUT BACK IN DECEMBER.

THE AMOUNT OF THE CALL TO ARTISTS WAS FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS.

WE PUT A NATIONAL CALL OUT AND BECAUSE THIS IS A SPECIFIC TYPE OF WORK TO BE DONE, WE ARE FORTUNATE THAT WE RECEIVED OVER TWENTY FOUR ARTISTS WHO WHO SUBMITTED THEIR SUBMISSIONS FOR CONSIDERATION.

I HOPE WE CAN MOVE FORWARD, PLEASE, FOR THAT.

THE NEXT NIGHT. SO THE PUBLIC ART COMMITTEE DID A WONDERFUL JOB IN REVIEWING ALL OF THE APPLICATIONS, IF YOU WILL, THE SUBMISSIONS THAT THAT WERE SUBMITTED AND THE SELECTION COMMITTEE, RATHER, THE PUBLIC ART COMMITTEE TO DETERMINE THESE THREE SEMIFINALISTS.

MARK AYLING, DAVID FOR CARSON, FOR CARSON AND MICHELE GODLOVE, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO THE FIRST ARTIST WILL TALK ABOUT IT.

AND WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT MARK'S PIECE HERE, PLEASE.

OK. AND AGAIN, PLEASE KNOW THAT I CAN'T SEE A THING, BUT I'M FAMILIAR WITH THE WORK.

[02:35:04]

MARK AYLING, NATIONALLY KNOWN ARTIST.

WE ARE FAMILIAR WITH HIS WORK.

HE PROPOSED A AN EXTREMELY LARGE FLOATING OUT OF ACRYLIC TINTED AND BLUE EGRET WITH, I BELIEVE, A 40 FOOT WINGSPAN HANGING FROM THE CEILING.

AND WE DID FEEL THAT IT COVERED THE AREA VERY, VERY NICELY.

AND AGAIN, WE KNOW HIS PROFESSIONALISM AND THAT HE HAS MANY COMPLETED WORKS ACROSS THE NATION. GEORGIA CAN'T SEE ANYTHING ELSE.

IF YOU WANT TO SAY MORE, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THIS IS DAVID SPARKASSEN AND HE'S A COLORADO ARTIST FROM DENVER.

AND HE SUGGESTED AND HE DOES WORK IN THIS MESS.

HE WORKS IN WIRE MESH.

HE WAS FORMING ABSTRACT, NONOBJECTIVE SHAPES OF MESH IN WHITE, AND HE HAS COMPUTER CONTROLLED LIGHTING THAT WOULD FLASH OFF OF THE WHITE MESH OBJECTS.

HE FELT THAT THE LIGHTING WOULD ALSO SPILL OVER ONTO THE WALLS AND PERHAPS THE FLOOR IN THE CEILING. HE REQUESTED.

AND HE THIS WAS HIS PRESENTATION, GEORGE.

IS THERE ANYTHING MORE YOU WANT TO BEGIN NEXT? WHY IS GEORGE AND WE HAD WITH THIS NEXT ARTIST, GEORGE AND I HAVE WORKED WITH HER BEFORE THEN THE CEILING SCULPTURE IN ALL DIE IN THE CITY OF LAUDERHILL.

AND ALSO SHE'S ACROSS THE NATION.

SHE WORKS IN GLASS AND GEORGE IS GOING TO PRESENT HER WORK.

SO THIS PARTICULAR ARTIST, AS I HAD MENTIONED, IS HAS REALLY DONE QUITE A NUMBER OF WORKS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. AND AND HER SIGNATURE IS SHE WORKS WITH GLASS AND LIGHT.

AND SO THE SLIDE THAT YOU'RE SEEING HERE IN THE ON THE LEFT AS WELL AS THE TOP RIGHT, YOU'RE ACTUALLY SEEING HER HOLDING PIECES OF GLASS THAT ARE DECROIX GLASS.

AND WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT IN JUST A MOMENT.

THAT WITH THE LIGHT COMING FROM THE LIGHT SOURCE AND THERE WILL BE LIGHT FIXTURES ATTACHED TO THE CEILING, SCULPTURE ITSELF WILL PLAY ON THE GLASS THAT WILL CAUSE THE SHADOW TO CAST NOW BEFORE MOVING FORWARD WITH THE REMAINING OF THE PRESENTATION.

THE REQUIREMENT FOR THIS PARTICULAR CALL TO ARTISTS WAS WE STRESS SPECIFICALLY THAT THE WORK ITSELF WOULD ACTUALLY CAST REFLECTIONS ON THE WALLS AS WELL AS ON THE FLOORS, AS WELL AS, OF COURSE, HAVE THE LIGHT ATTACHED TO IT AS WELL.

AND SO AS THE COMMITTEE WAS LOOKING AT EACH OF THE ARTISTS THAT WERE PRESENTED WITH SPECIFICALLY THE WE, MEANING THE PUBLIC ART COMMITTEE, SPECIFICALLY LOOK FOR THOSE ELEMENTS OF THE TWO ARTISTS THAT WERE PRESENTED PREVIOUSLY, MARK, AS WELL AS DAVID, THEIR PRESENTATIONS WERE BASED UPON THE EVALUATION OF THE COMMITTEE, DID NOT QUITE MEET THE CRITERIA AS FAR AS CREATING THAT WOW FACTOR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. SO MICHELLE GODLOVE, SHE IS ACTUALLY PROPOSING TO DO AN IMPRESSIONISTIC SCULPTURE OF PALM FRONDS UNDER THE AMBER GLOW OF SUNLIGHT.

NOW, THE NICE THING ABOUT THE BUILDING ITSELF IS AS YOU WALK INTO THE FRONT ENTRANCE, THERE'S THAT LARGE WINDOW OVERHEAD THAT WILL ALLOW FOR THE SUNLIGHT TO COME THROUGH THAT COUPLED WITH LIGHTS THAT SHE WILL ACTUALLY ERECT ALONG WITH THE SCULPTURE.

SO SHE'S READING FROM HER PROPOSAL HERE.

THE PIECE IS CALLED SHADOWPLAY.

SO, AGAIN, PLAYING WITH LIGHT, PLAYING WITH WITH GLASS AND USING PALM FRONDS.

SHE GETS THE INSPIRATION FROM FROM NATURE.

AND SO HENCE SHE WILL USE A COMBINATION OF THE PALM FRONDS ALL DONE IN SPECIALLY MADE HAND CAST GLASS THAT WOULD BE SUSPENDED FROM THE CEILING WITH STAINLESS STEEL STAINLESS STEEL RODS. NOW, THE NICE THING ABOUT THIS, TOO, WHILE THE SHADOWS AND REFLECTIONS CAN BE TOUCHED BECAUSE OF THEIR REFLECTIONS ON THE WALL, ON THE ON THE FLOOR, THE ACTUAL GLASS PIECES THEMSELVES WILL NOT BE IN REACH FOR INDIVIDUALS TO ACTUALLY TOUCH.

NEXT, PLEASE. HER PROVIDING A SAMPLE, A DEMONSTRATION OF HOW THE LIGHT SHE'S HOLDING A PALM PRINT ON THE GLASS, RATHER, IN HER IN HER HAND

[02:40:02]

THERE, AND THEN LIGHT IS REFLECTING ON THAT PALM, WHICH THEN CREATES THAT SHADOW EFFECT.

AND YOU SEE THE SAME ON THE LEFT AS WELL.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. NOW, AS YOU RECALL EARLIER, OVER TO THE LEFT IS WHAT THE SPACE LOOKS LIKE CURRENTLY AS IT IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION, JUST THE RENDITION HERE ON THE RIGHT THERE SHOWS THAT SPACE WITH COLOR.

NOW, GRANTED, WE'RE NOT SURE YET WHAT THAT COLOR WOULD BE ON THE INTERIOR, BUT THIS PARTICULAR ARTIST JUST SORT OF USED THIS COLOR FOR NOW AND WILL WORK WITH THE, YOU KNOW, WITH WITH MYSELF, WITH MY BUSINESS PARTNER.

BUT IN TERMS OF WHAT IS THE APPROPRIATE COLOR.

SO NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

NOW, HERE YOU SEE ON THE LEFT ARE A SMALLER VERSION, IF YOU WILL, OF THE OF THE WITH THE LATTER, OF COURSE, THE LATTER IS CONSTRUCTION.

BUT THERE'S A TWO IS TWO STORIES, AS YOU KNOW.

AND SO INDIVIDUALS EVEN ON THE TOP FLOOR, WHEN YOU LOOK TO THE RIGHT THERE, THE PHOTOGRAPH FROM THE RIGHT, YOU'LL ACTUALLY SEE THE PALM FRONDS CASTING THE SHADOWS.

THERE'S DISPERSEMENT OF PIECES OF GLASS ABOVE IT, REPRESENTING THE CLOUDS, CETERA, AND WITH THE INTERPLAY OF THE THE GLASS THAT IS BUILT IN WITH THE GLASS, WITH THE LIGHTING ITSELF, AS WELL AS THE LIGHT COMING FROM OUTSIDE, IT WILL CREATE SUCH A DYNAMIC, DYNAMIC PIECE. NOW, JUST AS A POINT OF INTEREST AS WELL, IS WHENEVER AN ARTIST DOES ANY TYPE OF WORK THAT GOES IN A SPECIFIC PLACE IN THE ENTIRE ENVIRONMENT, IT IS BROUGHT INTO CONSIDERATION. AND AS SHE MENTIONED IN HER PROPOSAL, THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF USING PALM FRONDS AS YOU ACTUALLY ENTER THE DRIVING AREA OF THE WHERE THE HOTEL AS WELL AS THE CLUBHOUSE WILL BE, THERE ARE BEAUTIFUL PALM FRONDS, OTHER BEAUTIFUL PALMS, ONE IN PARTICULAR, BISMARCK PALMS, WHICH ARE THERE, WHICH ONCE YOU DRIVE IN AND THEN, OF COURSE, YOU GO INTO THE CLUBHOUSE AND NOW YOU'RE GOING TO ACTUALLY HAVE THAT SAME EXPERIENCE BUT DONE THROUGH ART.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. OK, AS I MENTIONED TO YOU, THE CERTAIN CRITERIA THAT THE ARTISTS ARE REQUESTED AND REQUIRED AND THE PUBLIC ART COMMITTEE IS MAKING A RECOMMENDATION TO SELECT MICHELLE GOTTLEIB TO THE COMMISSIONERS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION, THEY RECOMMEND RECOMMENDING MICHEL GOTLIB BECAUSE OF THE FOLLOWING.

HER WORK WOULD REQUIRE MINIMAL ONGOING MAINTENANCE VERSUS THE OTHER TWO IN PARTICULAR, ONE WITH THE WIRES. IT'S MUCH MORE DIFFICULT TO ACTUALLY MAINTAIN IT AND TO KEEP IT CLEAN OF THE DESIGN ELEMENTS.

CAST A REFLECTION SHADOW ON THE FLOOR AS WELL AS ON THE WALL.

IT COMPLEMENTS THE INTERIOR OF THE CLUBHOUSE.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, IT SPEAKS TO THE NATURAL PARTS OF TAMARAC AS WELL, IF I PLEASE.

AND WE ARE OPEN FOR QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU. ANY QUESTIONS? WHY CAN'T HEAR? IS EVERYONE THERE? I LIKE. YES, I'M HERE.

THERE WE ARE. OK, I CAN HEAR THE MAYOR IN THERE.

MAYOR GOMEZ CAN'T HEAR YOU.

CAN YOU HEAR HER YET HERE WE CANNOT HEAR YOU.

GOMEZ. OK, HERE WE GO.

YEAH, OK. SUMMARY THAT CONCLUDES OUR PRESENTATION.

THE CONTRACT IS LESS THAN FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS, SO THE CITY MANAGER IS AUTHORIZED TO EXECUTE. ONCE WE DECIDE TODAY WHAT ARTISTS WE'RE GOING WITH, THE PUBLIC ART COMMITTEE IS RECOMMENDING MICHELLE, AND THE CODE REQUIRES THAT YOU APPROVE THE PUBLIC ART COMMITTEE'S RECOMMENDATION. SO WE'RE LOOKING THIS MORNING FOR OUR CONSENSUS FROM THE COMMISSION THAT YOU ARE IN AGREEMENT WITH THE PUBLIC ART COMMITTEE'S RECOMMENDATION.

WELL, AS YOU KNOW, WE'RE USUALLY VERY VOCAL ABOUT OUR WORK, AND I HAVE NOBODY UP TO SPEAK ON MY LIST, SO I GUESS I WILL GO FIRST.

I THINK YOU I THINK THE COMMITTEE'S TIME AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT I DO NOT FEEL WELL, IT'S BEAUTIFUL IN AND OF ITSELF, THAT IS NOT, IN MY OPINION, WHAT IS THE RESISTANCE OF WALKING

[02:45:10]

INTO AN ELEGANT, BEAUTIFUL, BRAND NEW, MODERN, CONTEMPORARY, GORGEOUS BUILDING? I DO NOT FEEL THAT THAT IS WHAT THE CITY IS TRYING TO EMULATE WITH THIS NEW PROJECT.

I ACTUALLY WHEN I LOOKED AT IT, I APOLOGIZE.

I UNDERSTAND. AM I SUPPOSED TO BE PUTTING CLOUDS? BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS STINGRAYS AND SEAWEED.

FLOATING ABOVE MY HEAD, ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS I THOUGHT OF AS IF I WAS EVER GOING TO GET MARRIED HERE, I'M GOING TO BE ON THAT LANDING.

THAT'S NOT THE BACKDROP I WANT.

I JUST FOR ME PERSONALLY, I DO NOT FEEL THAT IT.

EXUDES WHAT OUR BUILDING AND THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF WHAT WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO DO WITH THIS PROJECT FROM DAY ONE.

I'M NOT SAYING IT'S NOT BEAUTIFUL.

I JUST DON'T BELIEVE IT'S BEAUTIFUL FOR THIS.

THAT IS MY OPINION.

AND I STILL HAVE NONE OF MY COMMENT, MY COLLEAGUES WISHING TO SPEAK AT THIS TIME ABOUT IT. SO I'M A LITTLE HARD TO GET A CONSENSUS WHEN I AM THE ONLY ONE HAVING AN OPINION AND THEREFORE NORMALLY WITHOUT HAVING AN OPINION FROM ANYBODY ELSE.

THERE'S NO CONSENSUS ON THIS ITEM FOR YOU.

SO AS SUCH, AND THERE'S VERY I MEAN, THIS IS A MATTER IS I NOW I HAVE A COMMISSIONER, THIS COMMISSIONER FLOCCO IS NEXT ON THE QUEUE.

MR. WALKER, THANK YOU.

I HAVE SAT IN AT THE MEETING VIEWING ALL OF ALL THREE OF THESE AND.

I HAVE THE GREATEST RESPECT FOR OUR COMMITTEE, THEY SEE EVERYTHING THROUGH AN ARTIST, WHICH IS SOMETIMES VERY DIFFERENT THAN MINE AS A REGULAR AS A REGULAR PERSON TO ME.

I WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING FOR THIS SETTING THAT WAS VERY CONTEMPORARY AND ELEGANT.

AND THE ACRYLIC SCULPTURE TO ME WAS THAT THEIR THOUGHT PROCESS IN DISCUSSING IT WAS IT WASN'T COLORFUL ENOUGH THAT IT MIGHT GET LOST.

AND MAYBE I UNDERSTAND THAT.

BUT THE CURRENT PIECE THAT THEY ARE PROPOSING TO US.

JUST NUMBER ONE, IT APPEARS TO ME IT WOULD BE MUCH BETTER IN AN EASTERN WATER COMMUNITY THAN IN TAMARACK, I'M NOT QUITE SURE HOW IT REFLECTS TAMARACK.

IT JUST WAS NOT VISUALLY WHAT I HAD IN MIND FOR THIS SPOT.

THAT'S MY OPINION.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER.

BUT IN YOUR OPINION.

VICE MAYOR, VICE MAYOR.

BOTH IN YOUR OPINION. THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR.

I JUST THOUGHT THAT WE WERE GOING TO CALL THE QUESTION AND VOTE ON THE ON THE ITEM.

I HEARD YOU ASKING FOR CONSENSUS, BUT THAT CONFUSED ME A LITTLE BIT.

I DIDN'T KNOW IF THIS WAS A WORKSHOP OR A COMMISSION MEETING, SO I JUST WAIT FOR THE PROCEDURES FOR THIS AS ANOTHER IS THAT THERE'S A DISCUSSION PERSON TO DETERMINE AND GO FROM THERE. OK, GOT IT.

SO. THANK YOU.

WE ARE NOW COMMERCIAL AGAIN.

DO YOU HAVE A COMMENT? OR ZAFIR, LATER ON, MY COMMENT IS I SUPPORT THE VIEW OF THE EXPERT ARTISTS THAT WE WE PAY TO GIVE THEIR OPINION AND I'M READY TO MOVE FORWARD.

THIS IS NOT A RITZ CARLTON AND MARRIOTT.

IT'S IT'S KIND OF ONE OF THE LOWER TIER LEVEL HOTELS.

SO I THINK WHAT YOU MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR, YOU MIGHT FIND A HIGHER LEVEL HOTEL, BUT THIS IS NOT THE HOTEL THAT THAT WE HAVE HERE.

SO JUST APPRECIATE, COMMISSIONER, THIS IS OUR CLUBHOUSE, NOT THE HOTEL.

SO I APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS.

AND I DO NOT SEE COMMISSIONER FISHMAN SPEAKING.

SO AT THIS TIME, EVEN WITH CONSENSUS, I HAVE A TWO AND TWO AND CITY ATTORNEY.

I WILL GO TO YOU ON THIS ONE BECAUSE DUE TO THE FACT THAT THIS IS NOT NECESSARILY ITEM THAT WE CONTROL BECAUSE IT IS WITHIN THE CITY MANAGER'S BUDGET, AS GEORGE CALLAWAY HAS MENTIONED, BUT IT IS ON HERE.

SO WE HAVE IT FOR DISCUSSION, CONSENSUS OR APPROVAL.

AND WHY DON'T WE GO TO WE'LL GO TO A VOTE THEN, IF IT'LL BE EASIER FOR PROCESS, MADAM MAYOR, IF I MAY. UNDER THE PROCEDURE YOU ADOPTED, IT WOULD BE VERY USEFUL TO AVOID THE

[02:50:04]

USE OF THE WORD CONSENSUS HERE, BECAUSE THIS IS SOMETHING WHICH WILL EXPEND PUBLIC MONEY.

IT WILL ISOLATE AND PLACE AN ITEM OF ART IN A PARTICULAR PUBLIC PLACE AND BE VERY HELPFUL THAT THE MANAGER RECEIVE YOUR RECOMMENDATION IN A MORE FORMAL FASHION, WHICH IN THIS CASE WOULD BE THIS WAY. THAT IS FINE.

SO I NEED A MOTION IN A SECOND.

FOR APPROVAL, THOUGH, CATHERINE, IF I MAY ADD ONE MORE COMMENT, PLEASE.

THERE IS THERE YOU DO OPINION ABOUT THE FLYING EGRET AND THE OTHER ONE THAT WE SHOWED.

IS THERE ANY OPINION AS TO THAT MOVE BEING ACCEPTED? I'M JUST CURIOUS THE VOTE ON THAT ONE.

FOR DISCUSSION PURPOSES, IS THERE ANYBODY ON THE COMMISSION, I KNOW THAT THE COMMISSION FLOCCO MADE HER COMMENTS ABOUT THE IGOROT I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WISH TO MAKE ANY MORE.

IS THERE ANYONE WHO WISHES TO MAKE ANY COMMENTS ABOUT THE IGOROT? COMMERCIAL FISHERMAN, EUROPEANIST.

I'M NOT I'M NOT REAL CRAZY ABOUT ALL THREE, BUT OF THE THREE, THE EGRET WOULD BE MORE APPEALING TO ME THAN THE.

THE PALM FRONDS AND LIGHT.

THANK YOU. I'LL SHARE MY OPINION OF I OF THE THREE, IF IT WAS JUST THE THREE, THE IGOROT WAS MORE APPEALING.

IN THE WHEN I LOOKED AT IT, THOUGH, IT LOOKED IF IT WAS STAINLESS STEEL AND HAD SOME UP TO IT. I'M NOT SURE HOW ACRYLIC AND THE BLUE WILL WORK, THOUGH.

IF YOU HAPPEN TO THINK THAT'S PRETTY.

I DON'T KNOW. I CAN'T SEE IT VERY WELL WITH WHAT WE HAVE.

BUT I ALSO STILL FEEL THAT FOR ME THAT IT WOULD BE SETTLING VERSUS BEING WHAT I WOULD THINK WOULD BE THE BEST FOR THAT ENTRYWAY.

THAT WAS MY OPINION. THANK YOU, MICHAEL.

MARY, IF I MAY ALSO ADD THE IF YOU RECALL, IN ONE OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS, THERE WAS A SOUTH WALL, WE WERE IN AN EFFORT TO ACTUALLY MAXIMIZE USE OF THE PUBLIC ART.

BUT RATHER THAN DO A SEPARATE CALL TO ARTISTS TO FILL THAT WALL, ONE OF THE REQUIREMENTS WAS TO HAVE THE CEILING SCULPTURE CAST A SHADOW ON THAT WALL.

THIS WOULD NOT NECESSITATE HAVING TO FILL THAT WALL WITH SOME PIECE OF ART, THE ONE OR THE DECIDING FACTORS AS IT RELATES TO THE TO THE EXHIBIT OF NOT THE PUBLIC ART COMMITTEE.

NOT SELECTING THAT PARTICULAR ONE WAS THERE WAS NOT THAT REFLECTION ON THE WALL THAT WAS WANTED. AND SO THAT WAS ONE OF THE DETERMINING FACTOR FOR NOT SELECTING THAT ARTISTS AND RECOMMENDING THAT ARTISTS UNDERSTOOD AT THE SAME TOKEN, JUST AS A CURIOSITY.

AND YOU GUYS CAN DISCUSS IT ANOTHER WAY.

BUT IF THAT PIECE OF THE PIECE THAT'S SELECTED HAS SUCH MAGNITUDE AND RADIANCE, WILL THERE NEED TO BE ANYTHING ELSE ON THAT WALL OR WILL IT FLAT? WELL, THAT'S EXACTLY THAT'S THAT'S STORAGE.

I BELIEVE WITH THAT, I BELIEVE HE DID HAVE LIGHTING ON THAT AND THAT IT WOULD CAST A SHADOW. RIGHT.

I BELIEVE. AND THAT THAT IS THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THIS PARTICULAR BOOKSHELF GOT LOVE ACHIEVED IN HER PRESENTATION AND CASTING A SHADOW ON THAT WALL WITH THE PAINT.

IT DOES. IT ALSO IS WHAT I'M SAYING, SIMILAR GEORGE TO THE PARMETER IN BALLERINA, WHICH YOU DIDN'T GO TO THAT RIBBON CUTTING.

IT CASTS A SHADOW ON THE WALL JUST BECAUSE OF THE LIGHTING.

RIGHT IN MY COMMENTARY IS THAT MAYBE YOU DON'T EVEN NEED SOMETHING TO CAST A SHADOW OR THE LIGHTING. MAYBE IT'LL BE WHATEVER IS SELECTED IF THIS IS NOT SELECTED IS THE SO BEAUTIFUL AND IT JUST TAKES OVER.

YOU DON'T NEED TO HAVE YOUR EYES DISTRACTED BY ANYTHING ELSE ON THAT WALL IF WE NEED TO.

YOU PUT SOME LIGHT SCONCES ON THE SIDE, MAYBE THAT ADDED UP A LITTLE BIT OR THE THE SHADING OF WHATEVER PAINT WE'RE USING WILL BE THE COMPLEMENT TO IT.

BUT I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR GOAL WAS.

I RESPECTED IT.

JUST AS I SAID FOR ME, IT DOESN'T FEEL.

LIKE WHAT THE ORIGINAL DETERMINATION FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, AS WE'VE BEEN GOING THROUGH WITH THIS AND THE ELEGANCE OF THIS PLACE, FOR ME IT DOESN'T WORK.

AND AT THIS TIME, I DON'T SEE ANY MORE COMMENTS.

SO I WILL NEED A MOTION THAT I THINK I HAD A MOTION A SECOND FOR APPROVAL.

SO THE CLERK THAT I GET THEM, YOU DID NOT, MA'AM.

[02:55:02]

OK, DO I HAVE A MOTION IN SECOND FOR APPROVAL MOTION? BLACKETT. FOR CLARIFICATION, WE DON'T NEED TO APPROVE A MOTION TO APPROVE.

THANK YOU. AND IT WAS SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER FISHMAN AND CITY CLERK, I KNOW WE PROBABLY DON'T, BUT DO WE HAVE ANY PUBLIC COMMENTS? WE DO NOT AT THIS TIME.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU, MR. CLARK. PLEASE CALL THE ROLL FOR CLARIFICATION THERE.

IT'S A MOTION TO APPROVE THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE PUBLIC.

OUR COMMITTEE, WHICH WAS MICHELLE LOVES ART.

PEACE, COMMISSIONER POLACCO.

NO. COMMISSIONER FISHMAN, NOW BEISNER BOLTON, YES, MISSIONER GALLON GAS. THE MAYOR GOMEZ, NOW.

PLEASE NOTE THE MOTION FAILS THREE TO TWO.

THANK YOU. NOW, MOVING ON TO THREE BIG DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE MOTION TO DRAFT RESOLUTION

[b. Discussion and possible motion to draft a Resolution Denouncing White Supremacy Item being brought forward by Commissioner E. Mike Gelin]

DENOUNCING WHITE SUPREMACY.

THIS ITEM IS BEING BROUGHT FORWARD BY COMMISSIONER MECHELEN MATAMORAS 13.

FOR THE RECORD, PLEASE, I'M SORRY, 13.

THANK YOU, MADAM. COMMISSIONER, GET ON THE FLOOR IS YOURS.

THANK YOU. SO IN A SENSE, NUMBER FORTY FIVE BECAME ELECTED.

THERE HAS BEEN A RISE IN THE NUMBER OF ATTACKS FROM EXTREME GROUPS OR WHITE NATIONALIST GROUPS. SO, FOR EXAMPLE, THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER REPORTS AN INCREASE OF THE NUMBER OF WHITE NATIONALIST GROUPS FROM ONE HUNDRED CHAPTERS IN TWENTY SEVENTEEN TO ONE FORTY EIGHT IN TWENTY EIGHTEEN, THE ANTI DEFAMATION LEAGUE REPORTS, AND ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY TWO PERCENT INCREASE IN INCIDENTS OF THE DISTRIBUTION OF PROPAGANDA.

AND THE NUMBER OF DEMONSTRATIONS HAVE GONE UP FROM SEVENTY SIX IN TWENTY SEVENTEEN NINETY ONE IN TWENTY EIGHTEEN. A STUDY BY THE CENTER FOR STRATEGIC AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIES FOUND THE NUMBER OF TERRORIST ATTACKS BY FAR RIGHT GROUPS QUADRUPLED BETWEEN TWENTY SIXTEEN IN TWENTY SEVENTEEN.

SO THE NUMBERS GO ON AND BACK IN THE 20.

ACTUALLY, IN TWENTY NINETEEN, JUST EARLY OF LAST YEAR, A REPRESENTATIVE FROM SOUTH CAROLINA, JAMES CLYBOURN, HE INTRODUCED A SIMPLE RESOLUTION REJECTING WHITE NATIONALISM OR WHITE SUPREMACY, AND IT WAS AGREED TO AND PASSED THE VERY NEXT DAY.

THE CITY OF EUGENE AND I DID SHARE THIS DOCUMENT.

EUGENE, OREGON, ALSO DRAFTED A SIMILAR RESOLUTION AND IT ALSO PASSED.

AND I DON'T BELIEVE WE HAVE ANY PARTICULAR ISSUE IN THE CITY OF TAMARACK, BUT I DO FEEL THAT IT'S IMPORTANT TO MAKE A STATEMENT AND MAKE IT CLEAR THAT OUR CITY DOES NOT SUPPORT DISCRIMINATION IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM.

AND JUST TO GO BACK OVER SOME ADDITIONAL NUMBERS FROM THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, THE FBI LIST, SEVEN THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED EIGHTY FIVE HATE CRIME INCIDENTS IN TWENTY SEVENTEEN.

AND THIS WAS THE HIGHEST TOTAL SINCE TWO THOUSAND EIGHT.

AS YOU DIG DEEPER INTO THE NUMBERS, THE ANTI BLACK OR AFRICAN-AMERICAN HATE CRIMES ROSE BY 16 PERCENT IN TWENTY.

SEVENTEEN, ANTI HISPANIC INCIDENTS ROSE TWENTY FOUR PERCENT, WITH FOUR AND TWENTY SEVEN INCIDENTS. ANTI HIGHER CRIMES DOUBLED TO ONE HUNDRED TWO INCIDENTS.

AND ANTI JEWISH HATE CRIME INCIDENTS ALSO ROSE BY THIRTY SEVEN PERCENT TO NINE THIRTY IN TWENTY SEVENTEEN.

AND A LOT OF THIS IS ATTRIBUTED TO THE HATE THAT'S SPEW THAT IS VIEWED BY OUR CURRENT PRESIDENT, WHETHER INDIRECTLY OR DIRECTLY, AND IT AFFECTS A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE.

SO JUST A SIMPLE RESOLUTION.

I'M RECOMMENDING AN OPEN UP FOR DISCUSSION.

I DO NOT SEE ANYBODY WISHING TO SPEAK ON THIS MATTER, SO.

AT THIS TIME, CITY ATTORNEY, I KNOW YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS BEING A LITTLE DIFFERENT, SINCE WE'RE NOT AT A WORKSHOP SETTING, I CAN DO A MOTION.

TO DETERMINE MOTION FOR DRAFTING A RESOLUTION, IS THAT WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS THE BEST PRACTICE NOW, IF YOU WILL? YEAH, THE COMMISSIONER PROPERLY HAD THE ITEM PLACED ON THE AGENDA.

IT WAS ONE OF HIS PREVIOUS ITEMS FROM SEVERAL WEEKS AGO.

IT IS AN ITEM WHICH WAS FOR HIS DISCUSSION WITH THE COMMISSION TO GET A SENSE FROM THE COMMISSION WHAT THEIR INTEREST WAS IN PURSUING THE MATTER OR NOT IT BE THE WILL OF THE COMMISSION TO ACTUALLY HAVE OUR OFFICE DRAFT SUCH A RESOLUTION TO BRING BACK FOR CONSIDERATION. THAT WOULD BE A MOTION WHICH NEEDS TO CARRY BY A MAJORITY VOTE.

[03:00:03]

WE WOULD THEN DRAFT THE RESOLUTION IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE ADMINISTRATION AND PLACE IT BACK BEFORE THE COMMISSION FOR REVIEW.

THAT'S THAT'S THE PRINCIPLE DIRECTION I THINK, THAT THE COMMISSION IS LOOKING TO ACCOMPLISH TODAY. IT SOUNDS GOOD.

THANK YOU. AND I NOW HAVE TWO PEOPLE ON LINE TO WISH TO SPEAK.

VICE MAYOR OF BALTIMORE RECOGNIZED.

THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. ALTHOUGH I WOULD SUPPORT COMMISSIONER GEHLEN AND THIS ITEM, I WANT TO BE IN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION AND SAY ON THE RECORD THAT MY SUPPORT OF THIS IS NOT BASED ON HIS COMMENTS ABOUT THE PRESIDENT OF WE AS ELECTED OFFICIALS IN THE CITY OF TABARROK, DO REPRESENT RESIDENTS WHO ARE REPUBLICAN AND LOVE OUR PRESIDENT.

WE DO TELL RESIDENTS THAT HE OR THAT HE IS NOT RACIST, THAT HE IS NOT ANY OF THE ABOVE.

AND SO I JUST WANT TO SAY, FOR THE SAKE OF OF ALL OF OUR RESIDENTS TO KNOW THAT THIS HAS NOTHING FOR ME TO DO WITH PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, I THINK THAT SOME OF OUR RESIDENTS WHO ARE DEMOCRATS MAY SHARE THE SAME VIEW AS MAGELLAN, BUT NOT ALL OF OUR RESIDENTS DO.

I ALWAYS SAY THAT WHEN A RESIDENT CALLS US AND FIX THE PROBLEM, WE DON'T ASK THEM IF THEY'RE DEMOCRATS OR REPUBLICANS.

SO MY VOTE IS NOT ON THE PREMISE OF WHETHER SOMEBODY IS DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN WHO OUR PRESIDENT IS.

I THINK THAT DENOUNCING WHITE SUPREMACY GOES BEYOND WHO THE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNTRY IS.

SO WITH THAT, I'LL COME BACK WHEN THE VOTE IS TAKING PLACE.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER FISHMAN.

I BELIEVE THAT THIS ISSUE.

HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME, WHOEVER THE PRESIDENT IS AND WHOEVER IS IN POWER, WHITE SUPREMACY HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR.

HUNDREDS OF YEARS.

AND YESTERDAY WAS THE SHOAH, WHICH WAS THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE HOLOCAUST AND HAVING. HAVING A VOTE ON.

THIS ISSUE TODAY IS PERFECT TIMING.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER FISHMAN.

YOU GOT ME INTERESTED IN SEEING THAT ONE ELSE WISHES TO SPEAK, I WILL SAY MY COMMENTS.

I AGREE WITH THE VICE MAYOR AND I AGREE WITH COMMISSIONER FISHMAN.

THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL MATTER.

IT IS A SHAME THAT IN THIS DAY AND AGE, IT IS STILL GOING ON THAT ANYBODY SHOULD BE PROSECUTED FOR ANY REASON JUST BECAUSE OF PEOPLE'S INSECURITIES THAT THEY DO SO.

AND I WILL ASK THE CITY CLERK TO CALL THE ROLL AND SAY IT GOT A AT THE ROLL CALL OF THE MOTION TO DRAFT, IS THAT NOT CORRECT? IT WILL BE. BUT ACTUALLY, BEFORE WE GO THERE, COMMISSIONER GALáN WISHES TO SPEAK NOW.

YOU KNOW, I CERTAINLY APPRECIATE THE COMMENTS FROM BOTH COMMISSIONER FISHMAN AND BOLTON, BUT IS THE FACT THAT THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREASE SINCE WE'VE HAD THIS PRESIDENT AND I'LL BE HAPPY TO SHARE THAT INFORMATION IN TERMS OF OTHER ARTICLES THAT HAVE REFERENCES AND STUDIES THAT HAVE BEEN DONE WITH THE CITY CLERK TO DISTRIBUTE TO THE REST OF THE COMMISSION. MR. GAGNON, THERE IS NO FIGHT HERE ON FEDERAL LEVEL OF YOUR OPINION, YOU HAVE YOUR OPINION, IT HAS BEEN EXPRESSED.

COMMISSIONER, VICE MAYOR BOLTON, ARE YOU WISHING TO SPEAK AGAIN? QUASSEY JUDGMENT IS FIRST ONLINE AND THEN GO AHEAD, COMMISSIONER FISHMAN.

JUST TO CLARIFY, I AM NOT ARGUING THAT THERE HAS NOT BEEN AN INCREASE.

I AM JUST SAYING THAT BECAUSE WE REPRESENT THE CITY AS A WHOLE AND BECAUSE WHITE SUPREMACY HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS, THAT IS WHY I WOULD VOTE FOR THE RESOLUTION. THANK YOU.

MY IN YOUR NEXT THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR, I JUST ALSO WANT TO CLARIFY THAT I DO NOT SUBSCRIBE TO THE BELIEF THAT YOU HAVE TO CALL THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

[03:05:02]

STATES. FORTY FIVE.

YOU KNOW, I AM A DEMOCRAT AND I'M BY NO BY NO MEANS REPUBLICAN.

AND BUT I DO SUPPORT ANY PRESIDENT THAT IS ELECTED OFFICE AND WHOEVER IS LEADING OUR COUNTRY, REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE, WHETHER OR NOT WE AGREE WITH THEM, I BELIEVE THAT THEY SHOULD BE RESPECTED TO SOME DEGREE.

SO, YOU KNOW, I I KNOW THAT COMMISSIONER KELLY IS A WELL-MEANING HE'S A GREAT INDIVIDUAL AND AN AWESOME LEADER AND COMMISSIONER, YOU KNOW, BUT I'LL JUST CAUTION HIM TO.

MAKE SURE THAT WE WE REPRESENT EVERYONE IN LEADERSHIP, REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE.

SO TO THE RESIDENTS WHO ARE LISTENING TO THIS MEETING, WHO ADORES THE PRESIDENT, WE ARE AT LEAST I SUPPORT ANY ONE WHO IS A LEADER IN OUR IN OUR CITY AND IN OUR COUNTRY.

AND I KNOW THAT AS LEADERS, WE'RE WE'RE DOING OUR BEST TO KEEP OUR COMMUNITY AND OUR COUNTRY SAFE. AND ON THAT NOTE, WE'RE GOING TO GO BACK TO THE TOPIC AT HAND AND THE MOTION, WAS THERE A MOTION AND A SECOND ON THIS CITY CLERK THERE WAS NOT THERE.

OK, SO I WILL FORMULATE IS THERE A MOTION AND A SECOND TO DRAFT A RESOLUTION DENOUNCING WHITE SUPREMACY? GLOBE, I'VE GOT TWO MOTIONS, I NEED A SECOND PLACE AND I GOT TWO SECONDS.

AFFLUENT CITY CLERK, WHEN YOU'RE READY, PLEASE CALL THE ROLL.

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR. VICE MAYOR BOLTON.

YES, COMMISSIONER POLACCO.

YES, COMMISSIONER GALLIN.

YES. COMMISSIONER FISHMAN.

YES. AND THEY ARE GOMEZ.

YES. PLEASE NOTE THE PASS.

THE MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY BY JAZEERAH.
