I GOT YOU.

COMMISSIONER BOLTON. I MEAN VICE MAYOR BOLTON.

GOOD MORNING. GOOD MORNING.

AND MAYOR GOMEZ. GOOD MORNING.

GOOD MORNING. ALL FIVE MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION ARE HERE.

EXCELLENT. AND AT THIS TIME, I ASK COMMISSIONER DEBRA PLACKO TO PLEASE LEAD US IN THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE. I WILL TURN MY COMPUTER SO YOU CAN SEE THE FLAG.

EVERYONE, PLEASE RISE.

NOW, I'M GOING TO TURN THIS OVER TO SAM, IF YOU WOULD, PLEASE READ THE PROCEDURES AND

[1. PROCEDURES FOR VIRTUAL MEETINGS]

REMINDERS FOR A VIRTUAL MEETING.

I CAN'T SEE ANYBODY YET ON THE SCREEN.

PERHAPS I'M JUST MISSING THAT.

CAN YOU HEAR ME MADAM MAYOR.

I CAN HEAR YOU NOW WE CAN SEE YOU.

I'M ONLY GETTING A SCREENSHOT OF MYSELF.

BUT IN THE BACKGROUND, SOME BACKGROUND NOISE.

YEAH, THERE GOES.

THANK YOU, LEVENT I CAN'T SEE ANYBODY BUT MYSELF AND JENNIFER JOHNSON ON THE SCREEN.

JUST FYI.

AND. NOW I'M GETTING.

NOW I'VE LOST EVERYTHING. HOLD ON A SEC, SORRY, WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE? SORRY, MADAM MAYOR.

NO TAKE YOUR TIME, TAKE YOUR TIME.

THERE I HAVE YOU DOWN THERE. THANK YOU.

GOOD MORNING. THE PROCEDURES THAT THE COMMISSION ADOPTED AT THE LAST REGULAR MEETING OF THE COMMISSION WHICH ADOPTED THE CMT OF THE GOVERNOR'S ORDER NUMBER 20-69 I I THINK I THINK WE'RE GOOD.

YES. THANK YOU VERY MUCH MIKE. THE PROCEDURES ARE SET FORTH IN THE ORDER ADOPTED BY THE CITY COMMISSION WITH REGARD TO THE PUBLIC NOTICES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN PROVIDED TO THE PUBLIC, BE ACCESSED BY THE PUBLIC, WHICH MAY BE BY PHONE CALL, IT MAY BE BY EMAIL, IT MAY BE BY ACTUAL LOGGING ONTO THE SYSTEM.

THE SYSTEM HAS ACCOMMODATED THAT SITUATION FOR THE MAYOR AND COMMISSION.

AS YOU KNOW, THE GOVERNOR'S ORDER NUMBER 20-69 WAS EXTENDED BY 20-12 TO AN INDEFINITE PERIOD OF TIME, WHICH WOULD ALLOW FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, LOCAL GOVERNMENT BODIES TO CONDUCT VIRTUAL MEETINGS UNDER THE FLORIDA SUNSHINE LAW CHAPTER 286 OF THE FLORIDA STATUTES. THE CITY IS IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE GOVERNOR'S ORDER AS AMENDED AND IS EXTENDED AND TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE, THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS MECHANISMS THAT ARE BEING USED THIS MORNING ARE THOSE WHICH ARE ADOPTED BY THE COMMISSION OF THE LAST MEETING AND ARE IN PLACE AND IN PLAY THIS MORNING.

ONE CAVEAT, AS YOU KNOW, MADAM MAYOR AND COMMISSION, ANY DECISION MADE BY THE COMMISSION CANNOT BE BY A VOICE VOTE.

IT MUST BE, IN FACT, A ROLL-CALL VOTE, WHICH THE CLERK WILL RECORD, GIVEN THE FACT THAT IT'S VIRTUAL IN NATURE.

YOU HAVE A NOT JUST A QUORUM, BUT YOU HAVE THE FULL MEMBERSHIP PRESENT THIS MORNING ON THE DAIS IN A VIRTUAL FASHION.

IF THERE'S ANY TECHNICAL DEFICIENCY OR MATTER OF WHICH THERE APPEARS TO BE A LACK OF COMMUNICATION, THE MEETING MUST, IN FACT, CEASE TEMPORARILY FOR THAT TO BE FIXED OR CORRECTED. TO THAT END, THE MAYOR AND COMMISSION MAY PROCEED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CMT POLICY AND PROCEDURE ADOPTED BY ORDER AT THE LAST COMMISSION MEETING.

AND THAT'S THAT'S THE PROCESS.

MADAM MAYOR, THANK YOU. EXCELLENT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE'RE NOW GOING TO GO TO PROCLAMATIONS AND PRESENTATIONS.

[2. PROCLAMATIONS AND PRESENTATIONS ]

I AM GOING TO READ THE TITLES IN FOR MAJORITY OF THEM.

AND ARRANGEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE FOR THE PROCLAMATION'S TO BE MAILED TO THE RESPECTIVE INDIVIDUALS THESE HAVE BEEN CALLED FOR.

SHE WAS AWARDED THE HONOR OF HOMETOWN HOME RULE HERO FOR THE THIRD YEAR IN A ROW BY THE

[00:05:01]

FLORIDA LEAGUE OF CITIES FOR THE 2020 LEGISLATIVE SESSION.

SHE IS ONE OF ONE HUNDRED MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS TO BE HONORED THIS YEAR.

THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO SHARE THEIR NAMES ON THIS LIST WITH COMMISSIONER FISHMAN ARE NOTHING SHORT OF IMPRESSIVE, AND I AM PROUD TO SEE HER NAME THERE NEXT TO THEM.

BEING A HOME RULE HERO TAKES A LOT OF WORK, AND COMMISSIONER FISHMAN WORKED THROUGHOUT THE LEGISLATIVE SESSION TO PROMOTE OUR LOCAL VOICE AND PROTECT THE HOME RULE POWERS OF FLORIDA MUNICIPALITIES AND ADVANCE THE LEAGUE'S LEGISLATIVE AGENDA.

I KNOW YOU'VE MADE MANY TRIPS TO TALLAHASSEE AND YOU CONSISTENTLY FIGHT FOR WHAT IS BEST AND RIGHT FOR OUR CITY.

THANK YOU. SO NOW WE'RE GOING TO MOVE TO H, WHICH IS IEMO COURSE LEVEL THREE, VICE MAYOR MARLON BOLTON, COMMISSIONER JULIE FISHMAN AND COMMISSIONER MIKE GELIN.

THIS HAS BEEN REQUESTED BY THE LEAGUE OF CITIES AND I TOO HAVE A FEW WORDS ABOUT THAT.

IN MARCH, THE FLORIDA LEAGUE OF CITIES HOSTED THE INSTITUTE FOR ELECTED OFFICIALS LEVEL THREE COURSE, WHICH IS A LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE.

I'M PROUD TO REPORT THAT VICE MAYOR BOLTON, COMMISSIONER GELIN AND COMMISSIONER FISHMAN ALL COMPLETED THE COURSE.

THE COURSE WAS DEVELOPED IN 2013.

THIS CLASS IS FOCUSED ENTIRELY ON LEADERSHIP AND THE PROGRAM REVOLVES AROUND ASSESSMENT THAT DETAILS YOUR ABILITY TO CONNECT AND WORK EFFECTIVELY WITH OTHERS IS A VERY HELPFUL TOOL. AND FOR THE COLLEGIAL NATURE, FOR MEMBERS OF OUR CITY COUNCILS AND COMMISSIONS, CLASS PARTICIPANTS TAKE AN ASSESSMENT AHEAD OF THE CLASS AND THROUGH ATTENDING, LEARN THEIR SCORES, INTERPRET THE CHARACTER CHARACTERISTICS OF EACH COMPONENT, AND LEARN HOW TO APPLY THIS INFORMATION THROUGH CASE STUDIES.

I CONGRATULATE EACH ONE OF YOU ON THE COMPLETION OF THIS COURSE, AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING HOW YOU. WE WILL BRING WHAT YOU'VE LEARNED TO OUR CITY, SO CONGRATULATIONS TO THE THREE OF YOU. THANK YOU.

MOVING ALONG NOW, I WILL GO TO THE COMMISSION REPORTS.

[a. Vice Mayor Bolton]

VICE MAYOR BOLTON. GOOD MORNING, MADAM MAYOR.

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR ACKNOWLEDGING THAT CERTIFICATE.

I REMAIN ACTIVE IN MY COMMUNITY AND I WOULD JUST LIKE TO TELL THE RESIDENTS MY CELL PHONE NUMBER IS STILL ON AND AVAILABLE.

MY PERSONAL CELL PHONE NUMBER IS (954) 275-3850.

I CAN ALSO BE REACHED AT CITY HALL FOR CITY BUSINESS, AND THAT IS (954) 597-3463.

AND I'M ON FACEBOOK.

THAT IS FACEBOOK.COM/COMMISSIONERMARLONBOLTON.

YESTERDAY WELL, ON SUNDAY IT WAS MOTHER'S DAY.

SO I'M VERY PLEASED TO WISH ALL THE MOTHERS IN OUR CITY A VERY WONDERFUL MOTHER'S DAY.

MAY IS MENTAL HEALTH MONTH.

AND I WANT TO BRING ATTENTION TO A VIDEO THAT I'VE POSTED ON MY FACEBOOK PAGE.

FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO IT TALKS ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH AND THE IMPORTANCE OF THE OBSERVANCE.

AND OTHER THAN THAT, I WILL YIELD THE FLOOR.

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR INDULGENCE.

THANK YOU, VICE MAYOR.

COMMISSIONER GELIN. COMMISSIONER GELIN, DO YOU HAVE A

[b. Commissioner Gelin]

REPORT. ALL RIGHT, WE WILL MOVE TO COMMISSIONER FISHMAN.

YES. I'M NOT SURE IF MY CELL PHONE IS WORKING ON MY COMPUTER AUDIO IS WORKING.

WE SO SWITCH AGAIN.

THERE YOU ARE.

HELLO. YEP, WE CAN HEAR YOU.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? WE CAN COMMISSIONER GELIN.

WE CAN SEE YOU AND HEAR YOU. OK.

I WAS USING MY PHONE AUDIO.

NO SO OBVIOUSLY A COUPLE OF HOURS OF A UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL RECOGNIZING OUR LOCAL HEALTH CARE HEROES AT UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL IN TAMARAC.

[00:10:01]

I WAS LATE TO OUR LAST COMMISSION MEETING BECAUSE I WAS AT OUR FIRST FOOD GIVEAWAY.

I THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO BE THERE.

I WANT TO THANK COMMISSIONER BOLTON, VICE MAYOR BOLTON FOR ALLOWING ME TO HELP HIM DISTRIBUTE THE MASKS THAT HE HAD ORDERED AND DEVELOPED FOR RESIDENTS IN THE TAMARAC COMMUNITY. YOU KNOW, BROWARD COUNTY GAVE AN ORDER THAT WE ALL WEAR FACE COVERINGS, BUT, YOU KNOW, THERE WAS NOT A VENUE FOR PEOPLE TO ACCESS OR CREATE OR MAKE FACE COVERINGS.

SO I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY PROACTIVE ON VICE MAYOR BOLTON'S PART TO DO THAT AND TO, YOU KNOW, PROVIDE A NEED FOR RESIDENTS.

YOU KNOW, THERE WERE PEOPLE THAT DID NOT HAVE ESPECIALLY OUR SENIORS THAT DID NOT HAVE A CONVENIENT FACE COVERING.

SOME PEOPLE HAD TO GO TO THE STORE WITH TOWELS AROUND THEIR FACE.

SO IT WAS VERY INCONVENIENT TO FILL AN IMPORTANT NEED.

OBVIOUSLY, WE ARE STEPS OR DAYS AWAY FROM, YOU KNOW, IF MIC CITY ATTORNEY.

I'M SORRY, MR. COMMISSIONER.

SAY AGAIN. CAN YOU MUTE YOUR MIC? SOMEONE JUST CAME INTO MY OFFICE.

THANK YOU. AND I DON'T THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO REOPEN.

DR.

IF WE DON'T OPEN PROPERLY, A LOT WORSE COMING UP IN THE FALL.

AND I THINK WHAT'S HAPPENING, UNFORTUNATELY, I TOOK A PRE LAW CLASS IN COLLEGE AND LEARNED ABOUT FORD AND THE FORD PINTO AND FORD HAD THE OPTION OF PLACING A DEVICE IN THE BACK OF THE CAR TO PREVENT CRASHES OR ALLOWING THE CRASH TO HAPPEN.

AND WHAT THEY DID WAS THEY FACTORED THE COST OF A HUMAN LIFE AND PROJECTED THE COST OF A HUMAN LIFE. AND THEY WENT ON TO DEVELOP THOSE CARS WITHOUT THE ADDITIONAL PIECE TO SAVE SOME MONEY. AND THEY'VE BEEN A FACTOR IN THE COST OF LIVES BEING LOST.

AND I'M AFRAID THAT'S WHAT OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND SOME LOCAL GOVERNMENTS ARE DOING NOW IS JUST FACTORING THE COST OF DEATH FOR SOME PEOPLE FOR THE SAKE OF TRYING TO GET THE ECONOMY GOING. AND I DON'T THINK THAT'S A GOOD IDEA.

BUT THAT'S ALL I WANT TO TALK ABOUT FOR NOW, I WANT TO THANK VICE MAYOR BOLTON, MAYOR GOMEZ, COUNTY COMMISSIONER MICHAEL THANKS. THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER FISHMAN.

[c. Commissioner Fishman]

GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE.

I WANTED TO ALSO SAY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE MOMS OUT THERE.

IT WAS A QUIET MOTHER'S DAY, BUT ENJOYABLE AND I HOPE EVERYONE HAD A GREAT DAY.

I WANTED TO ALSO CONGRATULATE MY COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT LIAISON, GABBY DE SILVA.

SHE GRADUATED THIS PAST WEEK WITH HER MASTER'S IN GLOBAL AFFAIRS, CORPORATE RISK AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY FROM FIU.

AND I KNOW THAT THAT TOOK A LOT OF WORK FOR HER TO DO.

AND I WANTED TO CONGRATULATE HER PUBLICLY ON THAT.

AND THAT IS ALL I HAVE.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER PLACKO.

[d. Commissioner Placko]

GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE.

FIRST OF ALL, I'D LIKE TO SAY THAT THE PARADE WE WERE ALL IN OVER AT KINGS POINT, I JUST THINK THAT WAS INCREDIBLE.

AND THE ONE HUNDRED YEAR OLD ARTHUR, HE WAS JUST GETTING SUCH A KICK OUT OF THAT.

SO THAT WAS A FEEL GOOD MOMENT.

I'M GLAD WE ALL COULD DEFINITELY BE THERE TO SHARE IN THAT.

I DON'T AT ALL WANT TO MAKE LIGHT OF WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE WORLD.

HOWEVER, I HAVE SEEN THE GOOD SIDE OF PEOPLE AND I JUST LIKE TO SHARE THAT WITH YOU FOR A MOMENT. NEIGHBORS ARE HELPING NEIGHBORS RATHER THAN EVERYONE HAVE TO GO TO THE SUPERMARKET AND PUT THEMSELVES AT RISK.

NEIGHBORS ARE SHOPPING FOR NEIGHBORS.

ONE GOES ONE WEEK, ONE GOES THE NEXT WEEK.

I HAVE EVEN SEEN DURING MY WALKS NEIGHBORS PASSING TOILET PAPER TO NEIGHBORS ACROSS THE STREET BECAUSE THEY'VE RUN OUT.

AND APPARENTLY THAT'S STILL AN ISSUE.

FRIENDS OF MINE DROVE UP TO LAKE WORTH AND BOUGHT FOR TEN DOLLARS BUSHELS OF FRESH VEGETABLES, AND THEY CAME BACK AND SHARED IT WITH THEIR ENTIRE COMMUNITY.

SO THERE IS A GOODNESS GOING ON HERE.

ONE OF MY RESIDENTS SUGGESTED TO ME THAT TRYING DESPERATELY TO THANK OUR FIRST RESPONDERS AND OUR HEALTH CARE WORKERS, AND WE'RE ALL DOING IT IN VERY DIFFERENT WAYS.

ONE OF MY RESIDENTS SUGGESTED BLUE RIBBONS YOU COULD SHOW THAT.

[00:15:01]

YES, NO, MAYBE.

LEVENT CAN YOU HEAR ME? I CAN.

WELL, WE'LL SEE IF WE CAN GET THE PICTURE UP BUT BASICALLY PEOPLE ARE HIDING NOT HIDING, SORRY, I'M LOOKING AT THE SCREEN.

PEOPLE ARE TYING BLUE RIBBONS ON THEIR MAILBOXES, ON THEIR TREES, WHATEVER, TO SHOW SUPPORT. AND THIS IS ONE WAY THAT I REALLY IT'S TIME TO TAKE IT OFF YOU KNOW, THERE WE GO.

IS THERE ANYTHING WE COULD DO TO BLOCK THAT? I THINK PEOPLE NEED TO MUTE THEIR MICROPHONES.

PEOPLE ARE NOT SPEAKING.

THEY NEED TO MUTE THEIR MICROPHONES.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. PLEASE THANK YOU. THESE ARE A COUPLE OF THE PICTURES THAT MAILBOXES, THEY'VE BEEN ON TREES, THEY'VE BEEN ON THE FRONT OF COMMUNITY ENTRANCES.

SO I'M HOPING MAYBE OTHER COMMUNITIES WILL JOIN IN.

IT'S A SMALL THING, BUT IT'S ANOTHER WAY OF SHOWING SUPPORT DAILY.

MOTHER'S DAY WAS THE STRANGE ONE THIS YEAR.

BUT WE ALL GOT THROUGH IT AND NEXT YEAR WILL BE BETTER.

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT REOPENING.

I HAVE GOTTEN MANY CALLS AND EMAILS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ISSUE.

SOME PEOPLE ARE VERY ADAMANT WE SHOULD BE OPENING AND SOME ARE VERY ADAMANT WE SHOULD STAY CLOSED. I WILL SAY I THINK WE'RE RUSHING IT, JUST MY PERSONAL OPINION.

BUT PEOPLE HAVE TO MAKE THEIR OWN DECISION.

IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE GOING OUT, THEN DON'T.

DON'T GO OUT TO WHATEVER I'M SORRY. LEVENT, IS REALLY IS THERE ANY WAY FOR YOU TO CONTROL WHO HAS ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU.

PLEASE PROCEED. OK.

AS I WAS SAYING, I THINK EACH INDIVIDUAL HAS TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION.

IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE GOING OUT THEN DO NOT.

AND IF YOU FEEL THE NEED TO GO TO WHATEVER YOUR DECISION, THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER. GENTLEMEN, PLEASE PUT YOUR DEVICES ON MUTE, AND IF YOU HAVE YOUR OTHER ONE ON VIBRATE, YOU HAVE YOUR PHONE BY YOUR COMPUTER, MAYBE MOVE THE PHONE AWAY FROM YOUR COMPUTER. WE DIDN'T HAVE THIS PROBLEM TWO WEEKS AGO, SO WE DID SOMETHING RIGHT LAST TIME.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THE REPORT TIME IS NOW MINE.

[e. Mayor Gomez]

COMMISSIONER PLACKO, I APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS, YOUR SUGGESTIONS ABOUT THE BLUE RIBBON.

I LOVE IT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THERE, THE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL IS PUTTING OUT SIGNS ON THE LAWN FOR FRIDAY MORNING.

SO IF YOU CAN GET A SIGN SAYING THANK YOU OUR HEROES, PLEASE BRING IT TO THE LOBBY AND THEY WILL PUT IT UP. IF YOU BRING THEM BY TOMORROW TO THEY'LL BE PUTTING IT UP ON THE GRASS BEFORE THE HOSPITAL.

AND ALSO NOT TO BE REMISS WE NEED TO SAY THANK YOU TO FLORIDA MEDICAL CENTER AND TO BROWARD COUNTY CORAL SPRINGS THEY ARE ALSO WHO ARE TAKING IN OUR PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THE HOSPITALS. HOSPITAL LEVELS ARE DOWN.

IT HAS BEEN A VERY BUSY TWO WEEKS.

THE FUN PART OF IT HAS BEEN THE BIRTHDAYS TO CELEBRATE THE NINETY NINE YEAR OLD, COUPLE OF ONE HUNDRED YEAR OLDS.

WE HAVE ONE HUNDRED AND THREE YEAR OLDS AND PEOPLE STILL LIVING DESPITE THAT, WE ARE IN SUCH AN UNPRECEDENTED TIME, WHICH IS DIFFICULT FOR PEOPLE.

BUT WE ARE GETTING THROUGH THIS VERY WELL, I BELIEVE.

AND YES, THERE'S CONCERNS ABOUT REOPENING TOO QUICKLY AND BUT NOT REOPENING.

I HEAR FROM ALL SIDES AS WELL.

I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF BEING ON VARIOUS CALLS AGAIN FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS WITH THE WHITE HOUSE BRIEFING, WHETHER IT BE THE FLORIDA DIVISION OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT, THE FLORIDA LEAGUE OF MAYORS, THE U.S.

CONFERENCE OF MAYORS, AND ACTUALLY THE BEST CONFERENCES THAT WE'VE HAD I'VE BEEN WITH THE 31 OTHER MAYORS OF ABOUT THIRTY ONE MAYORS OF THE CITIES AND OUR MAYOR HOLNESS.

[00:20:02]

AND WE HAVE HAD DR.

STATE, DR.

SCOTT A CONCERN ABOUT REOPENING.

BUT THEY ALSO SAY IT HAS TO BE DONE IN A SMART PROCESS.

THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS HAVE BEEN PROVIDED AND BEING REVIEWED.

WHATEVER RULES ARE IN PLACE.

WE'RE ALSO MAKING SURE AS BEST AS POSSIBLE WE DO THIS SMART AND ON A REGIONAL BASIS, BECAUSE LET'S BE HONEST, WE TRAVEL.

NAPLES BEACHES WERE OPEN.

PEOPLE FROM BROWARD WERE THERE RIGHT AWAY.

GEORGIA OPENED UP. PEOPLE FROM FLORIDA WERE THERE RIGHT AWAY.

AND WHEN THEY COME HOME, THEY COME HOME TO US.

IT IS VERY MUCH GOING TO BE AN IMPORTANT PROCESS WHERE OUR BUSINESSES TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT THEY'RE DOING TO MAKE CONSUMERS FEEL BETTER.

AND IT IS ALSO GOING TO BE OUR RESPONSIBILITY AS CONSUMERS TO DO WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO NOT GO IN IF WE DO NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE.

AND IT'S NOT A MASS OPENING IF IT SHOULD HAPPEN ON MONDAY.

I BELIEVE OUR CITY MANAGER HAS MUCH MORE ON THE DETAILS FOR THAT AND THE COUNTY.

WE HAVE A PHONE CALL THIS AFTERNOON WITH THE MAYOR AND THE MAYOR OF THE COUNTY, TO DISCUSS THIS EVEN FURTHER.

SO PLEASE, NO, NO DECISIONS ARE BEING MADE LIGHTLY BY ANYBODY WHO IS MAKING THESE DECISIONS. AND WE WILL STILL CONTINUE TO WORK TOGETHER AND GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER.

I KNOW AT THIS TIME THERE IS A FOOD DRIVE GOING ON, A CHRISTIAN LIFE CENTER.

IT HAS BEEN AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE TO SERVE WITH CHRISTIAN LIFE CENTER, WITH THE KOREAN UNITED METHODIST CHURCH AND WITH COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN CHURCH HERE IN OUR CITY DOING FOOD DRIVES. THERE WERE SIX OVER THE PAST WEEK THAT I'VE HAD THE PLEASURE OF PARTICIPATING AND SERVING IN. AND THERE ARE PEOPLE NOT JUST FROM TAMARAC, THEY'RE ALL OVER OUR COUNTY WHO ARE COMING TO RECEIVE ASSISTANCE.

AND THE ASSISTANCE WILL NOT STOP EVEN WITH THE PARTIAL REOPENING, BECAUSE PEOPLE NEED HELP. I WANT TO THANK ALL THE ESSENTIAL WORKERS, I WANT TO THANK OUR PUBLIC, IT'S PUBLIC SERVICES WEEK BY THE WAY, BUT OUR CITY EMPLOYEES ARE PHENOMENAL.

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR KEEPING OUR CITY RUNNING AND DOING A GREAT JOB AT WHAT YOU DO.

AND I ALSO WANT TO THANK OUR HOSPITALS AND OUR NURSES AND OUR TEACHERS FOR EVERYBODY WHO HAS DONE A WONDERFUL JOB WITH OUR WITH OUR COMMUNITY AND ARE JUST KEEPING A POSITIVE ATTITUDE. SO I WILL END WITH ASKING YOU TO TUNE IN TOMORROW NIGHT AT 7:15 P.M.

TO THE VIRTUAL TOWN HALL THAT IS BEING HOSTED BY SENATOR PERRY THURSTON, AND IT IS FEATURING SCHOOL BOARD SUPERINTENDENT ROBERT RUNCIE.

THERE ARE A LOT OF QUESTIONS THAT ARE BEING ASKED ABOUT SCHOOLS AND SUMMER PROGRAMS AND THE LIKE. AND HE IS LOOKING FOR THE SENATOR AND THE SUPERINTENDENT ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING AVAILABLE FOR YOUR QUESTIONS.

TOMORROW AT ONE O'CLOCK I WILL ALSO BE WITH THE CEO OF UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL DOING A QUESTION, A FIVE MINUTE QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION WITH THE CEO OF UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL REGARDING WHAT THE HOSPITAL IS DOING AND ELECTIVE SURGERIES AND FOR ANY QUESTIONS THAT ARE GOING TO BE THEY'RE DOING TO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE ARE COMFORTABLE, THAT THEY NEED TO GO.

WE'RE FINDING THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT GOING TO THE HOSPITAL WHEN THEY NEED SERVICES. AND WE'RE CONCERNED THAT PEOPLE ARE NOT RECEIVING THE TREATMENT THEY VERY MUCH NEED TO STAY ALIVE BECAUSE OF THEIR FEAR WITH COVID-19.

ON THAT NOTE, I WILL JUST SAY, EVERYBODY, STAY SAFE, STAY HEALTHY, KEEP DOING A GREAT JOB. IT IS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.

AND I WILL TURN THIS OVER TO OUR CITY ATTORNEY.

[4. CITY ATTORNEY REPORT]

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR. GOOD MORNING AND THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.

AND I APOLOGIZE. COMMISSIONER GELIN, SOMEONE STOPPED IN MY OFFICE WHEN YOU WERE SPEAKING, AND I DID NOT KNOW THAT MY MIKE WAS AND I APOLOGIZE TO YOU.

TWO THINGS. MAYOR AND COMMISSION ONE IS A LITTLE BIT EASIER THAN THE OTHER ON MAY THE 22ND BROWARD LEAGUE OF CITIES IS SPONSORING A A LIVE VIRTUAL ETHICS TRAINING FOR TWO HOURS FROM 9 TO 11. OUR LAW FIRM, MEMBERS OF OUR FIRM REPRESENTING IN CONNECTION WITH THAT ITEM FOR SUNSHINE PUBLIC RECORDS AND ETHICS.

IT'S A LOG IN.

IT IS OBVIOUSLY FREE.

IT'S A LEAGUE OF CITIES OPPORTUNITY.

IF YOU NEED TWO CREDIT HOURS, WHICH MANY, MANY DO.

I KNOW THAT THE OIG IS ALSO PLACING SEMINARS AS WELL, WEBINARS OVER THE NEXT NUMBER OF DAYS. BUT THERE IS ONE.

IT'S FRIDAY MORNING, THE 22ND OF MAY, NINE O'CLOCK TO ELEVEN O'CLOCK.

IT WILL BE INTERACTIVE. THERE IS A FUNCTION, IT'S I BELIEVE IT TO BE A ZOOM EVENT WHERE PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO BE SEEN AND TO BE ABLE WILL BE HEARD.

JUST AS A SIDE NOTE, I HAPPEN TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ZOOM OF SOLID WASTE MEETING THAT OCCURRED WITH THE WORKING GROUP THIS WEEK ON MONDAY.

AND ALTHOUGH THERE WERE I THINK THERE WERE NINE MEMBERS OF THE ACTUAL COMMITTEE, MAYBE LESS, I'M NOT SURE. I LOOK AT THE SIDE NOTE.

THERE WERE 90 PEOPLE THAT LOGGED INTO THE ZOOM CONFERENCE, NOT ALL OF WHOM SOUGHT TO BE HEARD. BUT THERE WERE NINETY FOLKS THAT SIGNED UP TO ACTUALLY VIEW AND MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC INCLUDED JUST FYI.

HAVING SAID THAT, MAYOR AND COMMISSION, WE ISSUED A MEMORANDUM TO YOU A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO. THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS ON MAY THE 5TH MODIFIED THE BROWARD COUNTY ETHICS CODE IN CONNECTION WITH CHARITABLE GIVING AND CHARITABLE ADVOCACY ON BEHALF OF PUBLIC

[00:25:01]

OFFICIALS. THE ORDINANCE, AS AMENDED, APPLIES TO BOTH COUNTY OFFICIALS AND CITY OFFICIALS. IT'S COUNTYWIDE APPLICATION.

OUR MEMORANDUM MAKES EVERY EFFORT TO CLARIFY FOR YOU WHAT THE ORDINANCE APPEARS TO SAY, AND WE WILL CERTAINLY HAVE OCCASION TO TALK ABOUT THAT, BOTH PRIVATELY AND OTHERWISE.

AS THINGS PROCEED, WE INTEND TO MAKE IT A FOCAL POINT OF THE PRESENTATION ON MAY THE 22ND AS WELL. IN THE INTERIM, IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS WE CAN ANSWER FOR YOU OFFLINE, WE'RE HAPPY TO DO SO. WHAT THE ORDINANCE DOES IS IT COMPLETELY REPEALED.

THE SECTION GOVERNING CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS SPECIFICALLY THAT WAS IN REFERENCE TO SOLICITATION AND RECEIPT OF CONTRIBUTIONS AND DIVIDED, AS IT WERE, ACTIONS TAKEN BY PUBLIC OFFICIALS IN THEIR PRIVATE CAPACITY AND IN THEIR PUBLIC OR OFFICIAL CAPACITY, WHICH MAKES IT AN INTERESTING DISTINCTION AND ALSO PROVIDES CLARIFICATION.

WE ARE PUBLIC OFFICIALS OF ISSUES THAT DO NOT CONSTITUTE A CHARITABLE SOLICITATIONS, INCLUDING SUCH THINGS AS POSTING ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE DIRECTED AT GROUPS OF 50 OR MORE INDIVIDUALS, GO FUND ME PAGES, NEWSLETTERS AND OTHER ISSUES THAT ARE NEW TO THE CODE THAT WE'RE JUST NOW STUDYING BUT WANTED TO GET IT OUT TO YOU FOR YOUR REVIEW.

THERE'S ALSO SOME UNIQUE PROVISIONS REGARDING RELYING UPON YOUR CITY ATTORNEY, FOR EXAMPLE, AND HELPING TO FIND THE MUNICIPAL AND PUBLIC PURPOSE IN CONNECTION WITH ACTIONS TAKEN BY PUBLIC OFFICIALS, WHICH IS A NUANCE THAT'S NOT CURRENTLY IN THE THE OLD CODE IS NOW IN THE NEW AND REVISED CODE.

THE MEMOS ONLY THREE PAGES LONG.

WE MADE EVERY EFFORT TO KIND OF DICHOTOMIES THE PROVISIONS OF THE ORDINANCE ADOPTED BY THE COUNTY COMMISSION, WHICH IS 20-20, INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH.

AND WE'RE HAPPY TO RESPOND TO QUESTIONS AS THINGS PROCEED.

IT IS NEW. WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE ALL GOT A VERY QUICKLY AND WE WILL MAKE IT A FOCAL POINT OF THE PRESENTATION ON MAY THE 22ND OR FOR OFFLINE CONVERSATIONS THAT WE'RE OFFERING TO DO AT ANY TIME FOR ANY ONE MEMBER OF THE COMMISSION.

OTHER THAN THAT, THAT'S THE ONLY TWO ITEMS THAT HAVE MAYOR AND COMMISSION.

THANK YOU FOR LISTENING. APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

MOVING NOW TO OUR CITY MANAGER REPORT.

[a. COVID-19 Status Update and City Operations ]

MIKE, THE FLOOR IS YOURS.

IT HELPS WHEN YOU UNMUTE YOUR MICROPHONE.

FIGURED.

THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONER.

WE HAVE A STATUS REPORT AND A REOPENING UPDATE THAT WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU QUICKLY THIS MORNING BEFORE WE GET STARTED WITH THAT.

JUST WANTED TO SHARE A BIT OF BAD NEWS LAST NIGHT DEPUTY ROB LONGTIME BFO DEPUTIES, WAS KILLED IN AN OFF DUTY MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT IN BOCA RATON.

CAPTAIN CIRMINIELLO AND THE LIEUTENANT PHILLIPS ARE THERE WITH HIS FAMILY LAST NIGHT AND THIS MORNING. AND WE'LL PROVIDE YOU WITH SOME MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THAT SO THAT YOU CAN PROVIDE YOUR OWN CONDOLENCES PRIVATELY.

BUT I DID WANT TO SHARE THAT BIT OF BAD NEWS WITH YOU THIS MORNING WHILE BSO DEPUTIES ARE NOT OUR EMPLOYEES, THEY HAVE CERTAINLY BEEN OUR PARTNER FOR A LONG TIME.

AND DEPUTY MANY PEOPLE KNOW HIM AND WERE FOND OF HIM.

SO THAT'S A TRAGIC LOSS FOR BSO AND FOR OUR DISTRICT SEVEN BSO PARTNERS.

SO THANK YOU FOR SHARING.

SORRY TO START WITH THAT THIS MORNING, BUT IT'S ANY TIME WE LOSE SOMEONE IT'S CERTAINLY A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY.

SO WE'LL PROVIDE YOU ABOUT THAT LATER TODAY.

THANK YOU. NOW, I'D LIKE TO GO AHEAD AND MOVE INTO THE UPDATE.

I JUST WANTED TO TALK A LITTLE BIT HERE ABOUT WHERE WE ARE, WHAT WE'RE DOING.

AS YOU KNOW, THERE'S BEEN A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF DISCUSSION ABOUT THE REOPENING OF THE ECONOMY. YOU'VE ALL COMMENTED ON THAT, I THINK, ALREADY THIS MORNING.

BUT CLEARLY, NATIONWIDE, FLORIDA COUNTY AND CITIES ARE REOPENING ACROSS OUR STATE.

WE'RE GETTING BETTER AT NEW INFORMATION EVERY DAY ABOUT TESTING, ABOUT INFECTION RATES.

THE GOVERNOR IS CONTINUING TO GIVE EXECUTIVE ORDERS.

THERE ARE DISCUSSIONS, THERE ARE PROTESTS.

RESEARCH IS GOING ON.

WE ARE FOLLOWING ALL OF THAT, AS I KNOW YOU ARE, AND WE'RE TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF IT AS AS WE GO. WHAT I WANT TO EMPHASIZE TO YOU THIS MORNING IS THAT REOPENING FOR THE CITY OF TAMARAC, FOR THE CITY, FOR OUR BUSINESSES, FOR OUR BUSINESS COMMUNITY, NEEDS TO BE DONE METHODICALLY. IT NEEDS TO BE DONE SLOWLY.

IT NEEDS TO BE DONE PRUDENTLY.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT NEEDS TO BE DONE IN A SAFE MANNER FOR OUR RESIDENTS AND AND FOR OUR BUSINESSES. WE WILL CERTAINLY FOLLOW THE LEAD IN THE DIRECTION OF THE GOVERNOR AND THAT OF OUR COUNTY EXECUTIVE WHO IS WORKING WITH THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE IN PALM BEACH COUNTY AND DADE COUNTY TO MAKE MANY OF THESE IMPORTANT DECISIONS.

[00:30:03]

BUT IN A MATTER OF DAYS, THE GOVERNOR IS GOING TO APPROVE STAGE ONE REOPENING IN BROWARD.

AND WE HAVE BEEN PREPARING FOR THAT FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS.

ACTUALLY, EVERYTHING IS NOT GOING TO BE BACK TO NORMAL.

CLEARLY, THINGS ARE GOING TO BE DIFFERENT.

AND WE ARE TAKING STEPS INTERNALLY TO TO GET READY FOR THAT.

FIRST AND FOREMOST, WE ARE GETTING PREPARED TO DEAL WITH THE COMMUNITY FROM AN EDUCATION STANDPOINT. OUR FOCUS WILL BE ON EDUCATING OUR OUR BUSINESSES AND OUR RESIDENTS AS TO WHAT THE APPROPRIATE REOPENING PROCEDURES WILL BE.

WE'RE GOING TO HELP THEM PARTICIPATE IN THE REOPENING AND WE HOPE TO DO IT IN A POSITIVE WAY. WE'VE BEEN SUCCESSFUL WITH THIS APPROACH UP TO THIS POINT, PARTICULARLY WITH OUR PARKS AND ANY OF OUR OTHER FACILITIES THAT HAVE BEEN OPEN.

AND WE'VE GOTTEN VOLUNTARY COMPLIANCE PRETTY MUCH ACROSS THE BOARD.

SO WE'RE GOING TO WORK WITH OUR BUSINESS COMMUNITY IN THAT SAME MANNER TO ASSIST THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY IN THE REOPENING FROM AN EDUCATION STANDPOINT.

AND IN DOING SO, DO THE ABSOLUTE BEST THAT WE CAN TO KEEP OUR RESIDENTS SAFE.

YOU KNOW, CLEARLY THIS PANDEMIC IS NOT OVER.

CLEARLY, THERE'S GOING TO BE MUCH MORE THAT THAT NEEDS TO OCCUR.

AND WE'RE GOING TO FOLLOW WE'RE GOING TO FOLLOW ALONG.

WE'RE GOING TO FOLLOW THE LAW AS AS IT IS GIVEN TO US BY THE GOVERNOR AND BY OUR COUNTY EXECUTIVE LEVEL.

CAN I GET THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE? THANK YOU. SO STAGE ONE REOPENING IS IS PRETTY MUCH ASSURED ON MAY 18TH, AS HAS BEEN DISCUSSED BY THE BROWARD COUNTY COMMISSION AND WITH THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE, YOU'LL SEE ON THE SLIDE THAT OF PARTICULAR INTEREST, EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE THE RESTAURANTS AND RETAIL AT TWENTY FIVE PERCENT CAPACITY.

ALSO MUSEUMS AND LIBRARIES.

TWENTY FIVE PERCENT CAPACITY.

AND THEN BARBERSHOPS, SALONS, NAIL SALONS, ET CETERA.

ALL WITH THE TWENTY FIVE PERCENT CAPACITY, NOW BARS, PUBS, NIGHTCLUBS, GYMS, FITNESS CENTERS, VACATION RENTALS, MOVIE THEATERS ARE ALL WILL ALL STILL REMAIN CLOSED DURING THE PHASE ONE REOPENING.

AND AS I SAID EARLIER, OUR FOCUS IS GOING TO BE ON EDUCATING THE BUSINESSES THAT ARE OPENING. AND TRYING TO ASSIST THEM IN A POSITIVE WAY SO THAT OUR RESIDENTS REMAIN SAFE A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR OWN FACILITIES.

WE WILL NOT BE REOPENING OUR FACILITIES IMMEDIATELY.

WE ARE TAKING STEPS CURRENTLY TO PREPARE OUR FACILITIES FOR A SAFE REOPENING IN ORDER THAT OUR RESIDENTS CAN USE THE FACILITIES AND FEEL SAFE AS THEY'RE DOING THAT, YOU'LL SEE GERM GUARDS AND AND THINGS GOING UP THROUGHOUT OUR THROUGHOUT OUR BUILDINGS AND THROUGHOUT OUR FACILITIES.

WE'RE GETTING OUR STAFF PREPARED FOR A REOPENING THAT'S NOT GOING TO OCCUR, I DON'T EXPECT, UNTIL SOMETIME AFTER JUNE 1ST OR FOR CITY AND MUNICIPAL FACILITIES TO REOPEN.

WITH THAT, I'M GOING TO ASK CHIEF SAYLES TO TAKE THE NEXT SLIDE AND TALK TO YOU ABOUT WHAT'S ACTUALLY GOING ON WITH THE VIRUS AT THIS POINT.

SO WE HAVE THE SLIDE CHIEF SAYLES ARE YOU WITH US? I KNOW HE'S ON THE LINE.

MAYBE HE'S HAVING TROUBLE WITH HIS MIC.

CITY MANAGER, DO YOU WANT TO GO TO THE NEXT ONE AND COME BACK? OH, YEAH, JUST WAIT A MOMENT.

GO AHEAD AND JUST WAIT A SECOND, MADAM MAYOR, LET'S SEE IF WE CAN GET HIM ON.

YOU GOT IT. LET'S SEE IF WE CAN GET HIM ON.

THERE HE IS. I SEE HIS PICTURE.

ARE YOU WITH US? CHIEF SAYLES, ARE YOU ON THE LINE WITH US NOW? I'M HERE. CAN YOU GUYS HEAR ME? WE CAN HEAR YOU.

YOUR FIRST SLIDES UP, I'M GOING TO MUTE MY MICROPHONE.

OK? LOOKS LIKE WE LOST A

[00:35:06]

HIM AGAIN.

WE'VE GOT YOU NOW.

AND NOW WE DON'T.

CHIEF WE CAN HEAR YOU. YOUR FIRST SLIDE IS UP.

YEAH, I CAN HEAR YOU.

YOU'RE ON. HI, CAN YOU GUYS HEAR ME, WE CAN.

WE CAN HEAR YOU, CAN YOU HEAR US? AND CAN YOU HEAR ME OK? YES. JUST SPEAK WE CAN HEAR YOU.

THEY CAN HEAR ME. WE CAN HEAR YOU, OK.

I'M NOT SURE YOU CAN HEAR ME BECAUSE I CAN'T HEAR MYSELF, BUT I'M GOING TO KEEP GOING AND.

I SEE MY CAN YOU GIVE ME A THUMBS UP IF I'M OK? I CAN HEAR YOU CHIEF.

NO. GIVE A THUMBS UP LIKE I DID, I HEAR YOU SAY, CAN I TALK ON YOUR PHONE? IT IS THAT THE GUIDELINES SAY, CAN YOU TURN THAT DOWN A LITTLE BIT? IS THAT THE ALLUDED TO IS WAS A PART OF OPENING UP AND THERE'S THREE BENCHMARKS THAT NEED TO BE FOLLOWED OR AT LEAST SUGGESTED.

AND THE FIRST ONE IS A DOWNWARD TRAJECTORY OF THE SECOND ONE IS A DOWNWARD TRAJECTORY UP OF DOCUMENTED CASES WITHIN A 14 DAYS OF FLU LIKE SYMPTOMS. AND THE OF COVID SYMPTOMS, AND THE THIRD ONE IS HOSPITAL CAN YOU CAN YOU BACK UP A LITTLE BIT? IT IS LIKE.

OH, THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT.

AND THEN WITH THAT SAID, YOU SEE THE DATA THERE AND WHAT THAT IS SHOWING YOU, THIS IS BROWARD COUNTY AND THAT'S SHOWING THE NUMBER OF NEGATIVE CASES, THE PERCENTAGE OF POSITIVE AND THE NUMBER OF POSITIVE.

SO THIS IS A 14 DAY, AND THAT'S LOOKS LIKE I'VE ALSO ADDED IT AND AND THAT WAS CHIEF. CAN YOU HEAR ME? CHEIF, WE'RE GOING TO INTERRUPT YOU, I'M GOING TO INTERRUPT YOU FOR A MINUTE BECAUSE WE CAN'T HEAR WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.

OK. YEAH, CHIEF, WE CAN'T HEAR YOU, LEVENT, CAN YOU HEAR ME? LEVENT CAN YOU HEAR ME? CAN ANYBODY HEAR ME? YES, YES, OK, GOOD.

THANK YOU. WE CAN HEAR YOU, MIKE.

OK, I CAN HEAR YOU, LEVAN..

LET'S DO THIS. LET'S GO TO SLIDE NUMBER SEVEN TO OUR REOPENING OBJECTIVES.

AND WE NEED TO GET SOMEONE TO HELP THE CHIEF REESTABLISH A CONNECTION HERE SO THAT WE CAN

[00:40:06]

HEAR HIS PART OF THE PRESENTATION BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT.

BUT I COULD NOT HEAR HIM, AND I DON'T THINK ANYONE ELSE COULD EITHER.

ALL RIGHT. ALL RIGHT, SO WE'RE GOING TO WE'RE GOING TO GET BACK TO I HAVE NO IDEA. CAN WE GET A MESSAGE TO PERCY, CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? ALL RIGHT, WELL, THEN WE NEED TO GET SOMEONE TO GET A MESSAGE TO THE CHIEF TO REESTABLISH A CONNECTION TO. YES, MAYBE TRY IT, MAYBE TRY A DIFFERENT COMPUTER.

OK.

I'VE DONE THAT TWICE ALREADY BY THE WAY.

OK, SO LET ME LET ME TAKE THIS OVER, I'VE ASKED I'VE ASKED IT TO MUTE THE CHIEF AND WE'RE GOING TO WE'RE GOING TO GET BACK TO HIM AFTER WE ESTABLISH AFTER HE ESTABLISHES A BETTER COMMUNICATION.

OUR REOPENING OBJECTIVES YOU CAN SEE ON THE SCREEN, THEY ARE SURVEILLANCE, SOCIAL DISTANCING, PROPER PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT, EMPLOYEE CUSTOMER SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS, CLEANLINESS, OUR EMPLOYEE ROLLOUT AND THEN OUR BUSINESS AND RESIDENTS SAFETY FOCUS, AS I SAID WHEN I STARTED. OUR MAIN OBJECTIVE AND IN REOPENING THE CITY IS IS GOING TO BE KEEPING OUR RESIDENTS SAY WE ARE WE ARE NOT IN CONTROL, OBVIOUSLY, OF THE REOPENING OF BUSINESSES AND THE THINGS THAT YOU'VE HEARD ABOUT ALREADY.

BUT WE ARE GOING TO BE PREACHING PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY TO OUR RESIDENTS.

I HAVE TO COMPLIMENT OUR RESIDENTS.

THEY'VE DONE A TREMENDOUS JOB SO FAR OF BEING INCREDIBLY RESPECTFUL OF THIS VIRUS AND TAKING THE STEPS THAT THEY NEED TO TAKE TO KEEP THEMSELVES SAFE, WHICH IS WHY WE'VE HAD A RELATIVELY LOW NUMBER OF INFECTIONS UP TO THIS POINT, CONSIDERING THE SIZE OF OUR COMMUNITY AND THE INFECTION RATES AROUND US.

SO WITH THAT, I'M GOING TO ASK LEVENT TO MOVE TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND I'M GOING TO ASK JACK STRAIN TO SPEAK TO PUBLIC SERVICES AND WHAT WE'RE DOING IN PREPARATION FOR REOPENING TO KEEP THE COMMUNITY MOVING FORWARD AND SAFE.

OK, SO PUBLIC SERVICES, OPERATIONAL FACILITIES, OUR WATER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS ARE RESTRICTED TO EMERGENCY WORK ONLY THOSE SCHEDULED SHUTDOWNS OF WATER SERVICE UNLESS EMERGENCY RELATED OUTDOOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS ARE PROCEEDING AS SCHEDULED.

WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF INSTALLING PLEXIGLASS GERM BARRIERS AT ALL PUBLIC CONTACT POINTS IN PREPARATION FOR THE EVENTUAL OPENING TO THE PUBLIC.

WE ARE ALSO CREATING SIGNAGE TO ENSURE THAT PROPER PPE'S ARE WORN IN CITY FACILITIES FOR OUR EMPLOYEES AND PUBLIC.

WE ARE ALSO GOING TO BE GENERATING DECALS TO CREATE THE PROPER SOCIAL SEPARATION IN OFFICES WHERE GROUPS OF PUBLIC WILL BE COMING IN AND TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY WILL BE PROPERLY SOCIALLY SEPARATED.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. OK, SO CLEANING AND SANITATION SANITIZATION EXCUSE ME, THE DAILY CLEANING AND DECONTAMINATION OF ALL HIGH TOUCH SURFACES ARE BEING DONE BY OUR JANITORIAL SERVICES. OUR HIGH TOUCH AREAS ARE SANITIZED EACH NIGHT AND THE RESTROOMS ARE SANITIZED MIDDAY IN ALL OCCUPIED BUILDINGS.

OUR CITY FACILITIES ARE SANITIZED WITH AN ELECTROSTATIC CLEANER OR DOING THAT ONCE A WEEK IN PREPARATION OF THE BEGINNING OF EACH WEEK.

AND OUR CONTRACTORS WORKING IN CITY FACILITIES ARE REQUIRED TO BE OUTFITTED WITH PROPER PPE AND THEIR TEMPERATURES ARE TAKEN PRIOR TO THEM ENTERING ANY OF OUR CITY FACILITIES.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE. THANK YOU, JACK.

CITY MANAGER CHIEF SAYLES IS AVAILABLE.

OK, THEN LET'S GO BACK TO THE CHIEF'S SLIDE.

I BELIEVE IT'S SLIDE NUMBER FOUR, PLEASE.

[00:45:07]

JUST LET ME KNOW WHEN TO BEGIN, BECAUSE I CAN'T SEE IT ON MY COMPUTER OR JUST HEAR YOU ALL ON THE PHONE. YOU CAN START PERCY WE ARE READY.

OK, WE'RE STARTING FROM THE BEGINNING, RIGHT, WITH THE WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH COUNTY REPORT. YES, SIR.

OK, PERFECT. THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT. SORRY ABOUT THE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES I COULD HEAR EVERYONE, BUT APPARENTLY I COULD SEE YOU ALL, BUT I COULDN'T HEAR YOU WITH THAT.

I JUST WANTED TO TALK ABOUT THE THE THE GUIDELINES FROM THE PRESIDENT'S COVID-19 AND THOSE ARE JUST THREE GUIDING PRINCIPLES.

AND THE FIRST ONE IS A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT ONE OF THE COMMISSIONERS IS TALKING ABOUT, A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE CITY MANAGER.

BUT THE FIRST PRINCIPLE IS A DOWNWARD TRAJECTORY OF INFLUENZA LIKE ILLNESSES WITHIN A 14 DAY PERIOD AND THEN A DOWNWARD TRAJECTORY OF DOCUMENTED CASES WITHIN A 14 DAY PERIOD.

AND THE THIRD IS HOSPITALS ABILITY TO TREAT ALL PATIENTS WITHOUT CRISIS CARE AND ROBUST TESTING PROGRAM FOR AT RISK HEALTH CARE WORKERS.

NOW, AS YOU GET A CHANCE TO LOOK AT THE SLIDE THERE AND THAT'S WHAT THIS IS BROWARD COUNTY DATA AND THIS IS WHAT OUR TESTING IS.

AND THE REASON YOU SEE FROM APRIL 27TH TO THE 10TH IS THAT A 14 DAY SNAPSHOT.

SO IF YOU LOOK IN THE MIDDLE, THAT'S THE PERCENTAGES OR POSITIVES.

AND YOU ALL CAN SEE WHAT THE TREND IS.

SOME DAYS IS UP, SOME DAYS IS DOWN.

BUT IN GENERAL IT'S A SORT OF A DOWNWARD TRAJECTORY.

THAT SAID, ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS THAT'S NOT ON HERE IS THE FACT THAT THAT THAT LAST BULLET THAT I'M TELLING YOU ABOUT IN TERMS OF ROBUST TESTING FOR HEALTH CARE WORKERS THAT INITIALLY HAS BEEN ROLLED OUT BY THE GOVERNOR AND THAT'S BEEN STARTED RIGHT NOW.

SO SEVERAL OF THE HOSPITALS ARE GOING TO BE RECEIVING THE ANTIBODY TEST KITS AND THEY'LL BE TESTING THEIR STAFF.

AND THEN THERE'S GOING TO BE A PLAN TO TEST FIRST RESPONDERS AND FIREFIGHTERS MOVING FORWARD. AND IF YOU CAN GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE LEVENT PLEASE.

AGAIN, I CAN'T SEE IT, SO I'M JUST GOING TO KEEP GOING AND ASSUME WE'RE THERE.

AND LEADING ON CONTINUING ON WITH WHAT I WAS SAYING INTO THE FIRST ONE IN TERMS OF HOSPITAL TRANSMISSIONS IS IF YOU LOOK AT THE TOP LEFT IMAGE THERE, IT TALKS ABOUT E.R.

VISITS, MENTIONING COUGH, FEVER, SHORTNESS OF BREATH.

AND THAT'S ALSO A SNAPSHOT OF THE TWO WEEK PERIOD.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THAT NUMBER IS TRENDING DOWN AND IN THE FAR RIGHT CORNER THERE, WEEKLY COUNT OF EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT VISITS FOR COVID LIKE SYMPTOMS. AND, YOU KNOW, THAT NUMBER HAS BEEN TRENDING DOWN OR THAT CURVE LINE IS TRENDING DOWN AS WELL. AND IF YOU WOULD, GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND THIS IS COVID-19 JUST DATA IN GENERAL, FLORIDA CASES IS WHEN I DID THIS PRESENTATION WHEN I WROTE THIS PRESENTATION, REALLY ORIGINALLY IT WAS THE 11TH.

THAT NUMBER IS THIRTY NINE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND EIGHTY EIGHT POSITIVE CASES FOR FLORIDA. IT'S UP TO TODAY IS FORTY THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND FOUR HOSPITALIZATIONS FOR COVID RELATED IT'S SEVEN THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED EIGHTEEN.

THAT'S AN UPDATE FROM WHAT YOU HAVE ON THE SLIDE.

AND THEN WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT BROWARD IN PARTICULAR, BROWARD CASES ARE UP TO FIVE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND TWENTY SIX.

AND IN TAMARAC WE HAVE ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY TWO POSITIVE CASES OVERALL FROM A TESTING PERSPECTIVE. AND KEEP IN MIND, THESE ARE TEST RESULTS THAT COME FROM A LOT OF DIFFERENT AREAS. THERE'S PRIVATE TESTING, THERE'S DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH TESTING.

SO THEY ALL END UP WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH.

BUT AS OF TODAY, THE NUMBER OF TEST THAT HAVE BEEN PERFORMED, THAT'S FIVE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTEEN OF THOSE POSITIVE TEST RESULTS HAVE BEEN FORTY ONE THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED AND TWENTY THREE.

AND NEGATIVE IS FIVE HUNDRED AND THIRTY SEVEN THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED EIGHTY ONE.

SO ROUGHLY ABOUT SEVENTY SEVEN PERCENT OF THOSE TESTS THAT SHOW A POSITIVE RESULT.

AND I THINK THE MANAGER, I THINK, OVERHEARD HIM MENTIONING THE OBJECTIVE.

I WON'T GO OVER THOSE AGAIN.

BUT WHAT I WILL DO IS SAY YOU COULD SEE THAT THE SIX OR EIGHT OBJECTIVES THAT WE HAVE THERE. BUT THE OVERALL GOAL IS NUMBER ONE IS TO PROTECT THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR OF OUR WORKERS AND OUR CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE.

NUMBER TWO IS TO PROTECT THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF THE COMMUNITY.

THREE IS TO ADVISE CITIZENS AND BUSINESSES REGARDING PROTOCOLS WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING AND FACE COVERING AND FOR MONITORING CONDITIONS AND IMMEDIATELY TAKE STEPS TO LIMIT AND MITIGATE ANY REBOUND OR OUTBREAKS.

AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT OUR COMMISSIONER GELIN KIND OF ALLUDED TO.

AND THAT'S IT FOR MY SECTION, UNLESS YOU HAVE QUESTIONS FOR ME.

AND AGAIN, I APOLOGIZE FOR THE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES.

[00:50:01]

ALL RIGHT. WE'LL GO RIGHT TO GREG WARNER.

GOOD MORNING, MAYOR, VICE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION.

JUST A BRIEF UPDATE ON SOME OF THE THINGS HAPPENING IN PARKS.

AND THIS PAST MONDAY, WE EXPANDED THE PARK HOURS FROM 6:00 P.M., CLOSER TO 7:30 P.M CLOSURE. THIS CONTINUES WITH A STRICTLY A PASSIVE USES FOR ALL OF OUR PARKS AT THIS POINT, STARTING NEXT MONDAY, MAY 18TH.

WE ARE GOING TO BE REOPENING THE GARY V.

JONES DOG PARK AND SOME OF THE STEPS THAT WE'VE TAKEN WITH THAT, WE ARE GOING TO STAFF THE DOG PARK AND LIMIT THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE ALLOWED INTO THE DOG PARK AT ANY ONE TIME.

SO WE'LL HAVE CERTAIN CRITERIA SET UP FOR THAT USAGE AND USAGE WILL BE RESTRICTED FOR NOW TO JUST TAMARAC RESIDENTS AS WELL WHEN WE OPEN THAT.

MOVING ON TO SOME OF THE BIGGER THINGS COMING UP THAT WE HAVE SUMMER BOTH SUMMER CAMP AND THE FOURTH OF JULY EVENT.

WE ARE CURRENTLY IN DISCUSSIONS INTERNALLY TO DETERMINE A DECISION ON EITHER OF THOSE AND WE'LL HAVE A DECISION ON BOTH OF THOSE, HOW WE'RE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD OR NOT THIS WEEK, AND WE'LL MAKE THAT DECISION AND ALSO FOR THE MEMORIAL DAY COMING UP AT THE END OF THIS MONTH. CURRENTLY WORKING WITH THE PIO AND I KNOW ALL OF YOU ARE INVOLVED WITH A VIDEO TRIBUTE THAT THE CITY WILL BE PUTTING TOGETHER THAT PEOPLE CAN VIEW ONLINE.

AND IN ADDITION TO THAT, WE'RE JUST CONTINUING TO DEVELOP OPERATING CRITERIA AND PROCEDURES FOR FOR ALL OF OUR FACILITIES, PREPARING FOR OR THE POTENTIAL FOR THOSE OPENINGS WHEN THAT WHEN THAT DOES COME FORWARD.

SO THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

OK. GOOD MORNING.

GOOD MORNING. AT THE LAST COMMISSION MEETING, WE GIVE YOU A RECAP OF OUR WIDE RANGE OF COMMUNICATIONS ACTIVITIES AND OUTREACH EFFORTS THIS MORNING.

I JUST LIKE TO GIVE YOU A SYNOPSIS OF OUR RECENT ACTIVITIES.

WE'VE ISSUED ONE CITYWIDE CODE RED, SEVEN CORONAVIRUS UPDATES, 60 PLUS SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS. THE NEW TAMAGRAM IS IN THE MAIL, AND THAT INCLUDES A SPECIAL PULL OUT SECTION FOR THE CORONAVIRUS RESOURCE GUIDE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. WE'RE WORKING CLOSELY WITH PUBLIC SERVICES TO ENSURE THAT WE'VE GOT ADEQUATE, INFORMATIVE AND USER-FRIENDLY COVID RELATED SCIENCE FOR ALL OF OUR BUILDINGS.

AND AS YOU KNOW, WE'RE WORKING ON THAT VIDEO TRIBUTE FOR MEMORIAL DAY.

WE'VE ALSO GOT IN-PROCESS WAYS TO, HOW CAN WE SALUTE GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS? YOU KNOW, IT'S A TREMENDOUS DISAPPOINTMENT TO NOT GET ALL THE POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE THAT YOU BELIEVE YOU DO BUT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A LOT OF PEOPLE AND WE'RE JUST TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A WAY THAT WORKS FOR ALL OF US TO GET THEM THE ATTENTION THAT THEY SO RICHLY DESERVE.

WE'LL BE DOING ADDITIONAL UPDATES AND POSTS AND, YOU KNOW, TO SUPPORT WHAT THE CITY MANAGER SAID WILL BE PART OF THE EDUCATION PROCESS, EDUCATE BUSINESSES AND RESIDENTS IN REOPENING PROCEDURES.

THAT'S IT. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU. GOOD TO SEE YOU. THANK YOU.

NEXT MADAM MAYOR, WE'VE GOT LERENZO CALHOUN.

GOOD MORNING, MADAM MAYOR.

MR. VICE MAYOR, MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION THIS MORNING, I WOULD TOUCH A BIT ON A FEW OF THE AREAS WHERE WE CONTINUE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT AND RESOURCES TO OUR EMPLOYEES AND THEIR FAMILIES, FIRST AND FOREMOST, WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE FAMILY'S FIRST CORONAVIRUS ACT, AS WELL AS THE EMERGENCY FMLA AS A SHARE WITH THE LAST TIME OUR STAFF UPDATED AND THEY'VE RECENTLY ENHANCED ONLINE FORMS NOT ONLY FOR EMPLOYEES TO MAKE THEM USER FRIENDLY ONLINE, BUT ALSO FOR OUR MANAGERS TO ASSIST IN THE PROCESS OF REQUESTING THESE LEAVES.

WE CONTINUE TO ASSIST VIRTUALLY AND OFTENTIMES IN-PERSON WITH EMPLOYEES WHO MAY HAVE ISSUES AND NEED TO REQUEST THOSE LEAVES.

WE'VE ALSO UPDATED OUR INTERIM GUIDELINES TO REFLECT RECENT CHANGES, SPECIFICALLY TO

[00:55:02]

REQUIRE EMPLOYEES WHO ARE IN CITY FACILITIES TO WEAR A MASK AND OPEN SPACES, OR IN SITUATIONS WHERE SOCIAL DISTANCING IS NOT POSSIBLE TO CONTINUE TO WEAR THEIR MASKS.

ONE OF THOSE EXAMPLES IS WHERE TWO OR MORE EMPLOYEES ARE RIDING IN A VEHICLE.

THEY ARE REQUIRED TO KEEP THEIR MASK ON.

SO WE'VE UPDATED THE POLICIES TO REFLECT THAT.

WE CONTINUE TO PROVIDE RESOURCES FOR OUR EMPLOYEES TO SUPPORT HEALTH AND WELLNESS.

WITH THIS BEING MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH, WE ARE PROVIDING VIDEOS TO HELP WITH DEALING WITH MANAGING STRESS DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME, AS WELL AS BEING PRODUCTIVE AND WORKING REMOTELY AND ALSO PRACTICING SAFE HYGIENE, WHICH WE HAVE ALL MADE, WHICH WE'VE MADE MANDATORY COURSES FOR ALL OF OUR EMPLOYEES.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, WE CONTINUE TO PROVIDE TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES.

WHAT I JUST SHARE WITH YOU, OF COURSE, IS WE'VE MADE MANDATORY THROUGH ONE OF OUR PARTNERS THAT WE UTILIZE TO PROVIDE SERVICES FOR OUR EVALUATIONS THROUGH WE'RE ALSO, WE WERE COMMISSIONED.

AND I USE THE WORD COMMISSION IN THE VERB SENSE BY THE CITY MANAGER TO PUT TOGETHER WHAT WE'RE CALLING A WORKPLACE OR WORKFORCE REINTEGRATION PLAN.

LEVENT IF YOU COULD MOVE TO THE NEXT SLIDE, THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

AND WITH THIS BUILDING A WORKFORCE REOPENING PLAN, THE CITY MANAGER HAS CHARGED US WITH PUTTING TOGETHER SOME OBJECTIVES WHICH YOU WILL SEE IN THE POWERPOINT SLIDE THAT WILL BE SHARED WITH YOU MOMENTARILY, THE ENTIRE PRESENTATION.

OUR CITY STAFF WERE IN THE PROCESS OF LOOKING AT THE REOPENING PLAN WITH THE GOAL TO MINIMIZE RISK TO EMPLOYEES, OUR CUSTOMERS AND CONTRACTORS, AND TO ALSO CREATE A PLAN WHICH WOULD EDUCATE OUR PUBLIC AS WELL AS OUR EMPLOYEES WITH REINTEGRATING TO THE WORKFORCE AND RESUMING ESSENTIAL OPERATIONS ONCE THE DETERMINATION IS MADE TO INTEGRATE SERVICES TO OUR RESIDENTS AND OUR EMPLOYEES AS WELL AS CUSTOMERS.

WE'LL ALSO TAKE A LOOK AT THE CONCERNS OF OUR EMPLOYEES AS WELL AS OUR RESIDENTS OR CUSTOMERS THEY ARE AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE PLAN.

AND WE'RE ADDRESSING ISSUES SUCH AS EMPLOYEE LEAVE AND CHILD CARE NEEDS, AT RISK POPULATION CONCERNS, PROVIDING COMMUNICATIONS ON PREVENTION, HEALTH CARE RESOURCES, AS WELL AS MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALTH SUPPORT TOOLS.

WE ARE ALSO LOOKING AT A POTENTIAL VIRTUAL OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR RESIDENTS TO DEAL WITH STRESSFUL, RESOURCES FOR DEALING WITH STRESSFUL TIMES.

WE ARE WORKING WITH PARKS AND REC TO THAT END AT THIS POINT, AND WE'LL PROVIDE UPDATED INFORMATION AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE.

WE'RE ALSO LOOKING AT, AS I MENTIONED BEFORE, MEASURES SUCH AS GOOD HYGIENE PRACTICES, ASSESSING TEMPERATURES AND MONITORING FOR COVID RELATED SYMPTOMS. I'D LIKE TO REITERATE TO OUR EMPLOYEES, AS WELL AS THE COMMISSIONER AND OUR CITY ATTORNEY, IF YOU ARE COMING TO CITY FACILITIES, YOU SHOULD BE TAKING YOUR TEMPERATURE AT LEAST TWICE A DAY, AS WELL AS TRACKING ANY COVID RELATED SYMPTOMS, WEARING MASK AND OTHER SOCIAL DISTANCING PRACTICES.

WE'LL CONTINUE TO UPDATE AND ENCOURAGING TELECOMMUTING AND OTHER OPTIONS FOR VULNERABLE INDIVIDUALS. FINALLY, AS JACK EXPLAINED EARLIER IN THE PRESENTATION, WE HAVE ENHANCED JANITORIAL SERVICES AND I DON'T KNOW IF CHIEF SAYLES SPOKE TO FIRE RESCUE, ACTUALLY WENT THROUGH ALL OF OUR CITY FACILITIES AND DID DISINFECT THOSE FACILITIES AS WELL AS VEHICLES AND EQUIPMENT. AND A PUBLIC SAFETY STAFF IS ALSO MAKING STRUCTURAL CHANGES, WHICH JACK DID SPEAK OF AND WORKING ON SIGNAGE FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING PURPOSES.

GOING FORWARD, YOU'LL SEE MORE AUTOMATION OF PROCESSES TO REDUCE PAPER HANDLING AND THE NEED FOR IN-PERSON INTERACTIONS.

CUSTOMER INTERACTIONS WILL LOOK A LITTLE DIFFERENT.

AS YOU KNOW, AS OPPOSED TO HANDSHAKE'S WE'LL INSTITUTE ELBOW BUMPING WHILE ENHANCING OUR SOCIAL DISTANCING AND MORE WEB BASED COMMUNICATIONS, WE'LL CONTINUE TO KEEP THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR EMPLOYEES, CUSTOMERS AND CONTRACTORS AS A PRIORITY AS WE MOVE FORWARD AND WE'LL BE PREPARED TO PROVIDE UPDATES AS OUR TEAM CONTINUES TO MEET.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL YIELD MY TIME BACK TO THE CITY MANAGER.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR THAT, LERENZO.

AND THANK YOU, MAYOR AND COMMISSIONER, FOR THE TIME THIS MORNING.

I'LL WRAP THIS UP QUICKLY.

THIS HAS BEEN A VERY CHALLENGING TIME FOR ALL OF US, FOR OUR RESIDENTS, FOR OUR EMPLOYEES. I'M VERY PROUD OF OUR COMMUNITY FOR THE WAY THAT IT'S RISEN UP AND MET THIS CHALLENGE. OUR EMPLOYEES HAVE CONTINUE TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE RESIDENTS, AND THEY'VE ADAPTED TO A SITUATION WHICH IS QUITE FLUID AND CONTINUING TO EVOLVE.

[01:00:04]

OUR RESIDENTS HAVE ADAPTED AND THEY'VE RISEN UP TO THE CHALLENGE TO SUPPORT THEMSELVES, TO SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER.

THIS HAS BEEN EVIDENT TO ME IN A NUMBER OF WAYS.

THEY DEMONSTRATED OUR RESIDENTS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT THEY UNDERSTAND AND RESPECT THE VALUE OF SOCIAL DISTANCING.

THEY'RE WEARING MASKS.

THEY'VE DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN DO TO HELP STOP THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS.

WE'VE SEEN HUNDREDS OF CHURCH VOLUNTEERS COME OUT TO SERVE FAMILIES IN NEED THROUGH OUR FOOD DISTRIBUTION PARTNERSHIPS.

AND THESE ARE PARTNERSHIPS WHICH WILL CARRY ON BEYOND THIS CRISIS AND BEYOND THIS PANDEMIC. WE'VE SEEN A LOT OF PEOPLE COME OUT TO SUPPORT OUR LOCAL RESTAURANTS.

AND AS MANY OF YOU HAVE ALLUDED TO IN YOUR REMARKS, WE'VE SEEN ANY NUMBER OF MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY SHOW UP FOR ONE ANOTHER.

THIS HAS CHANGED OUR ORGANIZATION.

IT'S CHALLENGED US.

IT'S BROUGHT US THE OPPORTUNITY TO LOOK AT OUR ORGANIZATION IN A DIFFERENT WAY TO REVIEW THE WAY THAT WE PROVIDE SERVICE AND TO COME UP WITH SOME BETTER SERVICE DELIVERY METHODS.

AND IT'S ALSO CHALLENGED US TO LOOK AT THE WORK THAT WE DO AS A CITY FOR OUR RESIDENTS AND WORK TO DO THAT BETTER AND TO DO IT DIFFERENTLY.

THIS CHALLENGE IS NOT OVER.

THIS CHALLENGE IS GOING TO CONTINUE FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.

IT WILL BE DIFFICULT AS AS WE LOOK AT REOPENING, WE UNDERSTAND THAT PEOPLE CRAVE A RETURN TO NORMALITY, BUT WE'RE GOING TO REMAIN VIGILANT, FOCUSING ON KEEPING OUR EMPLOYEES HEALTHY AND SAFE IN ORDER THAT THEY CAN SERVE THE COMMUNITY, BECAUSE IN ORDER TO SERVE THE COMMUNITY, WE NEED THEM HERE.

THEY HAVE TO BE HEALTHY AND SUCCESSFUL, WHICH IS SO FAR, OUR WORKFORCE HAS REMAINED INCREDIBLY HEALTHY THROUGHOUT THIS CRISIS.

AND WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO PURSUE THAT IN ORDER TO CONTINUE TO DO THE WORK OF THE CITY AND PROVIDE FOR OUR RESIDENTS.

AND WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO FACE THIS CHALLENGE TOGETHER.

AND I BELIEVE THAT IF WE CONTINUE TO DO THE RIGHT THING, WE'LL CONTINUE TO GROW CLOSER AS A COMMUNITY. WE LOOK AT THIS AS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO EMBARK ON A GOING FORWARD BASIS AND TO GET THROUGH THIS PANDEMIC, UNDERSTANDING THAT THIS IS A GLOBAL CRISIS NOT A LOCAL CRISIS, AND THAT WE ARE STRUGGLING WITH THE SAME THINGS THAT EVERYONE IS STRUGGLING WITH IN OTHER CITIES, THROUGHOUT THE COUNTIES, THROUGHOUT THE STATE, THROUGHOUT OUR COUNTRY.

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR. WE'LL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE AT THIS TIME.

I AM NOT SEEING ANY QUESTIONS BY THE COMMISSION.

SO THEREFORE, WE WILL GO OVER TO PUBLIC PARTICIPATION.

[6. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION]

THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND I'M GOING TO READ THIS IN FOR THE RECORD, ANY MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC MAY SPEAK TO ANY ISSUE THAT IS NOT AGENDA IS FOR PUBLIC HEARING AT THIS MEETING.

SPEAKERS WILL BE LIMITED TO THREE MINUTES DURING THIS ITEM AND 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 THE ITEMS ON THE AGENDA, MAY SUBMIT THEIR COMMENTS BY EMAIL TO CITYCLERK@TAMARAC.ORG.

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

MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC MAY ALSO REGISTER ONLINE AT TAMARAC.ORG/SIGNUP.

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

AND AT THIS TIME I AM AWARE THAT WE HAVE SEVEN COMMENTS TWO CALLS AND KNOWING THAT WE HAVE OUR REPRESENTATIVE DAN DALEY IS ON THE LINE AND HE WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT REEMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE UPDATE.

REPRESENTATIVE DALEY, WELCOME TO THE COMMISSION MEETING.

GIVE US ONE SECOND WHILE WE GET HIM ON THE LINE.

REPRESENTATIVE? HEY MAYOR, CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES, WE CAN.

VERY GOOD. WELL, GOOD MORNING, EVERYBODY, AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVING ME.

I KNOW, YOU KNOW, WHEN WE WERE WRAPPING UP IN TALLAHASSEE, WE HAD PLANNED TO COME IN AND DO A FORMAL KIND OF LEGISLATIVE UPDATE TO BE THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF SESSION.

AND THEN THAT ALL GOT UPENDED, AS DID MOST THINGS IN OUR SOCIETY BY COVID-19.

SO I FIGURED THIS ISN'T A LEGISLATIVE UPDATE.

I FIGURED, IF YOU DON'T MIND, I JUST TAKE A COUPLE OF SECONDS AND GIVE YOU KIND OF AN UPDATE BROADLY ON REEMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE, BECAUSE I KNOW THAT'S PROBABLY THE NUMBER ONE ISSUE THAT YOU'RE HEARING FROM YOUR RESIDENTS AND AND CERTAINLY FROM OUR RESIDENTS.

THAT'S NUMBER ONE ISSUE IN MY OFFICE AT THE MOMENT.

[01:05:03]

SO JUST TO KIND OF PAINT A PICTURE FOR YOU, OBVIOUSLY THIS IS AN UNPRECEDENTED SITUATION.

AND YOU'VE SEEN SO MANY PEOPLE, NOT JUST IN BROWARD COUNTY, BUT ACROSS THE STATE AND ACROSS THIS COUNTRY LOSE THEIR EMPLOYMENT THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN, THANKS TO COVID . SO JUST TO KIND OF PAINT A PICTURE, THERE HAVE BEEN ONE POINT EIGHT MILLION CLAIMS IN FLORIDA FILED THROUGH THE STATE'S REEMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM OF THAT ONE POINT THREE MILLION THAT SEEM TO BE UNIQUE CLAIMS. AND THE REASON I MAKE THAT DISTINCTION IS, CANDIDLY, THE SYSTEM THAT WAS SET IN PLACE FOR REEMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE IN THIS STATE HAS BEEN A DISASTER.

IT WAS A 77 MILLION DOLLAR WEBSITE THAT WAS A DEBACLE THAT THE STATE HAS NOW SPENT MORE THAN THAT TRYING TO FIX IT AND UPDATE IT AND GET IT PROGRAMED AND.

AND LOOK, WHILE THE WHILE THE NEED HAS BEEN UNPRECEDENTED AND THE NUMBER OF CLAIMS FILED HAS BEEN UNPRECEDENTED, IT'S ALMOST AS IF THE AGENCY AND THE PROGRAM TAKES A BABY STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND THEN A HUGE STEP BACKWARDS.

SO AND I DON'T HAVE TO TELL YOU ALL THIS, I'M SURE YOU HEAR IT FROM YOUR RESIDENTS.

AND FOR THOSE OF YOU I KNOW, ALL OF YOU KNOW, TO SEND ME ANYBODY THAT YOU GET, WHETHER THEY'RE IN MY DISTRICT OR NOT, I'M HAPPY TO TRY AND BE HELPFUL.

AND MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN DOING THAT.

SO THANK YOU. YOU KNOW, OUR GOAL IN MY OFFICE GENERALLY, JUST LIKE YOU ALL, WHEN YOU'VE GOT A RESIDENT REACHES OUT AND SAYS, HEY, I HAVE A PROBLEM OR AN ISSUE WITH THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT OR I HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THE PARKS AND REC DEPARTMENT, YOU ALL GO TO THAT DEPARTMENT AND YOU CONNECT THAT RESIDENT WITH THAT DEPARTMENT AND THEY GET THEIR ISSUE HOPEFULLY RESOLVED. THAT'S THE SAME THING THAT IS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN HERE.

BUT AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY CLAIMS AND SO MANY FOLKS WHO ARE REACHING OUT, NOT JUST IN MY OFFICE, BUT ALL THE LEGISLATORS IN FLORIDA'S OFFICE, THE AGENCY HAS NOT BEEN AS RESPONSIVE AS THEY CANDIDLY SHOULD BE, COULD BE, AND HELPING AND GETTING PEOPLE WORKED OUT, YOU KNOW, SO NOT TO POINT FINGERS AND CERTAINLY NOT TO THROW THE AGENCY UNDER THE BUS, BUT IT IS IT IS GETTING HARD AND IS GETTING IT IS GETTING DIFFICULT, JUST FROM MY PERSPECTIVE.

AND I'M SURE YOU SEE THE SAME EMAILS OR MANY OF THE SAME E-MAILS.

I DO. PEOPLE ARE GOING A MONTH, TWO MONTHS WITH WITH NO PAYCHECK, NO BENEFIT.

NO, YOU WE CAN'T EVEN CAN'T EVEN GET AN APPLICATION FILED, WHICH IS MIND BLOWING.

SO WHAT WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO DO, OUR WHOLE M.O.

IN THIS SITUATION HAS BEEN TO BE THE SQUEAKY WHEEL.

SO I AM IN CONSTANT CONTACT WITH THE AGENCY, WITH THEIR LIAISON TO THE LEGISLATURE ALMOST DAILY. HEY, WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO HERE? HOW DO WE GET THIS PERSON HELP, HOW DO WE GET THIS PERSON HELP? HOW DO WE GET THEM CONNECTED? ALL SORTS OF ISSUES THAT RUN THE GAMUT.

I ALSO WANTED TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF A BROWARD COUNTY PERSPECTIVE.

SO THERE HAVE BEEN FIFTY ONE THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED EIGHTY ONE CLAIMS, UNIQUE CLAIMS FILED IN BROWARD COUNTY TO PUT THAT IN PERSPECTIVE, WITH ABOUT FIVE PERCENT OF OUR LABOR FORCE.

SO THIS HAS BEEN A HUGE IMPACT, NOT JUST IN OUR COUNTY, BUT IN THE STATE WILL CONTINUE TO BE THAT SQUEAKY WHEEL WILL CONTINUE TO TRY AND GET PEOPLE THE HELP THAT THEY NEED.

SO PLEASE CONTINUE TO SEND FOLKS TO US.

WE'RE DOING WE'RE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN.

I SENT A LETTER ABOUT TWO OR THREE WEEKS AGO TO THE AGENCY BASICALLY DEMANDING AN UPDATED TIMELINE. YOU CAN'T CONTINUE TO TELL SOMEONE THAT THEIR CASE IS PENDING THEIR CASE IS PENDING THEIR CASE IS PENDING FOUR, FIVE, SIX WEEKS.

BECAUSE, LOOK, AT THE END OF THE DAY, PENDING DOESN'T PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE AND FOLKS ARE ENTITLED TO THE BENEFITS.

PEOPLE HAVE PAID INTO THE SYSTEM FOR YEARS AND ARE NOT BEING ABLE TO TO CLAIM ANY ASSISTANCE. THERE IS ALSO IF YOU HEAR FROM FOLKS WHO ARE MAYBE GIG WORKERS OR UNDER A 1099. THOSE FOLKS ARE NOT STANDARD, NOT ELIGIBLE UNDER THE STANDARD REEMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM IN FLORIDA, BUT THEY ARE COVERED BY THE CARES ACT PROGRAM THAT WAS PASSED AND IMPLEMENTED FINALLY IN FLORIDA CALLED THE PANDEMIC UNEMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, THE PUA, THE PUA.

IT IS THE SAME APPLICATION PROCESS AS THE STANDARD REEMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM IN FLORIDA, WHICH HAS ALSO LED TO SOME ISSUES CANDIDLY.

BUT IT IS A SEPARATE PROCESS.

SO IF YOU'RE HEARING FROM FOLKS THAT ARE 1099 OR GIG WORKERS THEY WORK AS UBER DRIVERS, LYFT DRIVERS, THINGS LIKE THAT, THEY WOULD BE ELIGIBLE UNDER THE PUA PROGRAM AND SHOULD GO TO THE DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY SITE TO START THAT APPLICATION PROCESS.

AND OBVIOUSLY, IF THEY HAVE AN ISSUE, AS THEY MAY, TO HAVE THEM REACH OUT TO ME AS WELL.

FINALLY, I JUST KIND OF WANTED TO THANK YOU ALL FOR WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

OBVIOUSLY, I THINK YOU ALL KNOW MY BACKGROUND.

I'M A HUGE, HUGE PROPONENT OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

AND YOU ALL ARE THE BOOTS ON THE GROUND AND LEADING THE WAY WITH YOUR CONSTITUENTS TO THIS INCREDIBLY DIFFERENT TIME.

SO THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU'RE DOING.

AND THE CITY MANAGER AND CITY STAFF FOR FOR ADAPTING IN THIS, QUOTE, NEW NORMAL.

[01:10:06]

I WANTED TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO THE CHRISTIAN LIFE CENTER AND TO YOUR CITY STAFF.

AND I KNOW OUR COMMISSIONER FISHERMEN, VICE MAYOR BOLTON, THE MAYOR, WE WERE ALL OUT AT THE CHRISTIAN LIFE CENTER FOR THEIR FOOD DISTRIBUTION A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, A HECK OF AN OPERATION WITH A TON OF VOLUNTEERS THAT JUST CAME TO HELP OTHERS.

REALLY, REALLY AWESOME.

AND ANY WAY THAT I CAN BE HELPFUL MOVING FORWARD WITH THAT, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

I DID ALSO WANT TO GIVE A QUICK HEADS UP.

IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY SEEN IT, IF YOU DON'T FOLLOW ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA, I THINK I LET YOU GUYS KNOW THAT'S WHAT WE'RE DOING.

VIRTUAL STORY TIME.

SO I'M CALLING IT STORY TIME WITH DAN.

IT'S FRIDAYS AT 1:30 AND I FACEBOOK LIVE AND WE PICK A DIFFERENT CHILDREN'S BOOK EVERY FRIDAY, LAST FRIDAY, IF YOU MISSED IT, IT WAS THE BOOK WITH NO PICTURES.

IT'S PROBABLY THE MOST EMBARRASSING VIDEO I'VE EVER CREATED.

SO FEEL FREE TO TUNE IN IF YOU WANT A GOOD LAUGH AT MY EXPENSE.

I HOPE EVERYBODY ENJOYED IT.

SO I'VE BEEN DOING THAT EVERY EVERY FRIDAY AT 1:30.

YOU CAN LET YOUR FOLKS KNOW IF THEY HAVE ANY INTEREST.

AND THEN ALSO I KNOW YOU GUYS ARE DOING SOMETHING.

THEY'RE LOOKING TO DO SOMETHING FOR SENIORS WHO ARE GRADUATING.

I'VE TRIED TO DO SOMETHING AS WELL.

IF YOU KNOW SOMEBODY WHO WOULD BE REMOTELY INTERESTED IN A CONGRATULATORY VIDEO PERSONALIZED TO THEM, I JUST SEND ME THEIR INFORMATION.

WHAT WHAT SCHOOL THEY'RE GRADUATING FROM, WHERE THEY'RE HEADED, WHAT THEY'RE PASSIONATE ABOUT, MAYBE SOME OF WHAT THEY'RE CONNECTED TO.

AND I TRY AND PUT THAT TOGETHER IN ABOUT A 45 SECONDS, TEN MINUTE CLIP, JUST SAYING, HEY, CONGRATULATIONS, WE'RE PROUD OF YOU AND TRYING TO OBVIOUSLY, YOU KNOW, THESE FOLKS ARE BOTH HIGH SCHOOL GRADS AND COLLEGE GRADS ARE MISSING OUT ON WHAT THEIR SENIOR YEAR REALLY SHOULD HAVE LOOKED LIKE IN THE CASE OF COLLEGES WITH THEIR SUPER SENIOR YEAR MIGHT HAVE LOOKED LIKE. AND SO ANYTHING THAT WE CAN DO TO TO SHOW APPRECIATION AND CONGRATULATIONS TO THOSE FOLKS, WE TRIED TO DO SO.

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH. I'M HAPPY TO TAKE ANY QUESTIONS, IF YOU HAVE ANY, OTHER THAN THAT, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. AND I LOOK FORWARD TO CONTINUING TO WORK WITH ALL OF YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, REPRESENTATIVE, FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK.

I KNOW THAT I'VE SENT YOU QUITE A FEW PEOPLE TO ASSIST WITH THE UNEMPLOYMENT AND YOU'VE BEEN AMAZING TO HELP THEM GET MOVED FORWARD WITH THINGS.

GREAT SERVING WITH YOU AND THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO.

I DO NOT SEE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR YOU.

SO WISH YOU A VERY GOOD AFTERNOON.

AND WE WILL SEE YOU AT THE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL HEALTH CARE HEROES LUNCH.

THANK YOU. SOUNDS GOOD SEE YOU THEN.

THANKS. AND I KNOW THAT I JUMPED THE LINE FROM THE COMMENTS.

CITY CLERK. SO I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO GO BACK TO THE COMMENTS AND THEN WE WILL GO BACK TO OUR LAST CALLER.

IT IS QUITE ALL RIGHT, MADAM MAYOR.

WE HAVE SEVEN COMMENTS FOR YOU THIS AFTERNOON OR THIS MORNING.

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM KIMBERLY HASTINGS.

SHE SAYS, DURING COVID-19, OUR WATER BILL IS SUPPOSED TO BE ASSESSED THE LATE FEE.

IF NO, THEN MINE HAS.

I HAVE. I'VE BEEN PAYING AS I HAVE IT DURING THIS TIME.

I PAID IT ON YESTERDAY.

THE NEXT ONE IS FROM RONALD COLES IS JONES PARK FOR DOGS OPEN NOW.

THANKS.

CAN YOU TELL ME WHEN THE TENNIS COURTS ON THE GREENS AT THE JASMINE COMMUNITY WILL OPEN? ELVIRASANTANA@COMCAST.NET SAYS, WHEN ARE YOU OPENING UP THE SALONS, RESTAURANT BARBERSHOPS AND STORES? IF WAL-MART HOME DEPOT ARE OPEN AND THEY DO A HORRIBLE JOB OF SOCIAL DISTANCING, THE VENUE CAN DO SOCIAL DISTANCING IN A MUCH BETTER WAY.

FAMILIES ARE LOSING THEIR BUSINESSES.

DEBBIE FINE AT FLORIDAGAL701@YAHOO SAYS WHEN CAN WE EXPECT CITY POOLS TO OPEN? IT WOULD BE NICE FOR SENIORS TO AT LEAST BE ABLE TO USE POOLS FIRST THING IN THE MORNING.

LESLIECASTILLO@GMAIL.COM SAYS, THANK YOU FOR ALL THE EMAILS REGARDING THE COVID-19 INFORMATION. I'M A BIT CONFUSED WITH THE LAST EMAIL SENT OUT ON MAY SEVENTH STATING THAT THE PARKS WERE EXTENDING HOURS TO 7:30 PM.

I JUST WENT TO THE PARK ON SOUTHGATE UNIVERSITY AND THE MAN THERE TOLD ME THEY CLOSED AT SIX PM. AS FAR AS I KNOW, THAT IS A TAMARAC PARK, SO I AM NOT SURE WHY IF THAT WAS EFFECTIVE ON MONDAY, MAY 11TH, IF YOU COULD PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS.

I GREATLY APPRECIATE IT.

AND FINALLY FROM FACEBOOK THIS MORNING WAS ARIEL MASK AWARENESS NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED WITHIN TAMARAC COMMUNITIES.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE FOR WRITTEN COMMENTS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, AND I KNOW YOU'LL BE RESPONDING OR THE RESPECTIVE PERSON WILL BE RESPONDING TO THOSE. SO IF WE NOW CAN MOVE TO CALLING MS. MARTHA HAMM, SHE IS OUR NEXT PERSON ON THE PUBLIC PARTICIPATION FOR THE REGISTER CALL LIST.

COMMISSION TO THE BROWARD LEAGUE OF CITIES.

CITY ATTORNEY, IF YOU WANT TO READ THE FULL TITLE.

ACTUALLY, IT IS JUST A MOTION, AS I SEE IT, IN THE BACK UP, CORRECT, MADAM CLERK? CORRECT. YES. AND THE MOTION ESSENTIALLY WOULD BE THE DISCUSSION OF POSSIBLE MOTION THAT MAKES THOSE APPOINTMENTS AND ARE SPECIFICALLY AS FOLLOWS.

THERE IS A DIRECTOR, THERE IS A FIRST ALTERNATE AND A SECOND ALTERNATE BY MOTION.

YOU CAN FILL IN THE BLANKS FOR THAT PURPOSE AND WE CAN EITHER DO A RESOLUTION LATER OR SIMPLY TAKE THE MOTION AS THE SOURCE DOCUMENT FOR THE LEAGUE OF CITIES TO MAKE A DECISION. THANK YOU. EXCELLENT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I WILL SOLICIT COMMENTS FROM THE COMMISSION AND ANYBODY WHO WISHES TO SPEAK. I AM PROUD TO CONTINUE TO SERVE AS THE DIRECTOR, TYPICALLY THE MAYOR HAS BEEN IN THAT POSITION AND GOING TO THE MEETINGS AND THEN WE DO.

SO I THROW THAT IN.

IS THERE ANYBODY WHO WISHES TO SPEAK FROM MY COMMISSION? YES. OK, I'M TRYING TO FIND THE PHONE.

NO WORRIES I GOT YOU.

COMMISSIONER FISHMAN. THERE'S MY THANK YOU. I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN SERVING AS THE FIRST ALTERNATE.

I KNOW THAT VICE MAYOR DID A EXCELLENT JOB THIS PAST YEAR, AND WITH THE TERM ENDING SHORTLY, I WOULD LIKE TO BE CONSIDERED AS THE FIRST ALTERNATE.

THANK YOU. ANY OTHER COMMENTS? I'M LOOKING AT THE PHONE.

ALL RIGHT, WELL, I HEAR YOU, THIS COMMISSIONER PLACKO.

YOU'VE GOT IT. I HEAR SAME PROBLEM, RIGHT.

SERIOUSLY, WE'LL FIGURE IT OUT. SERIOUSLY, THAT'S NOT WORKING.

I'D LIKE TO, I GUESS,ASK, WHO WOULD BE INTERESTED IN IT IF WE'RE DISCUSSING THIS.

YOU KNOW, WHO ELSE WOULD BE INTERESTED IN THIS? ARE YOU INTERESTED? I'M NOT HEARING FROM YOU OR THE VICE MAYOR.

SO I DON'T KNOW.

I'M INTERESTED IN REMAINING AS THE FIRST ALTERNATE.

I THINK IF THERE'S GOING TO BE A SHUFFLE, THEN PERHAPS, MADAM MAYOR, YOU CAN TAKE SECOND ALTERNATE. GIVE ME DIRECTOR, GIVE COMMISSIONER FISHMAN FIRST ALTERNATE.

BUT IF YOU'RE NOT SHUFFLING, THEN I'M NOT WILLING TO SHUFFLE AT THIS TIME.

OK. MADAM MAYOR I MAY OFFER IN THE CONTEXT OF MAKING THIS A DECISION PROCESS, THE BEST AND THE MOST COMFORTING WAY UNDER ROBERT'S RULES AND YOUR CODE 2-34 YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE NOMINATIONS AND YOU'RE GOING TO VOTE ON THEM IF YOU CAN'T AGREE AS A CONSENSUS BASED DISCUSSION HOW TO MAKE THIS APPOINTMENT.

SO YOU'D HAVE TO ACTUALLY DO THAT BY MOTION.

I CAN'T FIND THE EMOJI AGAIN.

SHOULD WE WAIT FOR COMMISSIONER GELIN TO BE INVOLVED IN THIS DISCUSSION? I DON'T KNOW IF WE ARE ABLE TO DUE TO A TIME FRAME THAT THE BROWARD LEAGUE OF CITIES NEEDS THEIR PAPERWORK, AND I DEFER TO THE CITY CLERK AND THE CITY ATTORNEY REGARDING THE TIME FRAMES THAT ARE NEEDED FOR THIS.

[01:35:03]

THE DEADLINE WAS ACTUALLY APRIL THE 30TH, BUT I REACHED OUT TO THE BROWARD LEAGUE OF CITIES, CONSIDERING THAT WE'RE IN A VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT AND WE DO HAVE SOME CONSTRAINTS, THEY EXTENDED THE DEADLINE AND THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO TAKE IT UP UNTIL THE 16TH OF MAY, OK? AND WE WILL NOT BE HAVING ANOTHER COMMISSION MEETING BETWEEN NOW AND THEN.

I HAVE NOT HEARD AN EXPRESSION BUT HE WOULDN'T SHARE IT WITH ME.

I DON'T KNOW IF CITY ATTORNEY.

I GUESS WE NEED TO GO FORWARD ON THIS ONE AT THIS TIME, IS THAT CORRECT? YES, MA'AM. I RECOGNIZE COMMISSIONER FISHMAN.

SINCE THIS IS A TIME SENSITIVE ISSUE, I WILL STEP BACK TO SECOND ALTERNATE SO THAT WE ARE ABLE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS ITEM.

COMMISSIONER FISHMAN.

SO IF THAT IS THE CASE, I NEED A MOTION AND SECOND TO APPOINT MICHELLE J GOMEZ AS DIRECTOR, MARLON BOLTON AS FIRST OF ALTERNATE AND JULIE FISHMAN AS SECOND ALTERNATE TITLES, PROPER TITLES, OF COURSE.

AND MADAM MAYOR, IF YOU WILL, RECOGNIZING THE POTENTIAL NON-OBJECTION.

IT WOULD BE BY MOTION. IT WOULD BE A ROLL-CALL VOTE AND IT WOULD BE YOURSELF AS THE PRIMARY, VICE MAYOR BOLTON AS THE FIRST ALTERNATE, AND COMMISSIONER FISHMAN AS THE SECOND ALTERNATE AS PRESCRIBED BY YOUR DISCUSSION MOMENTS AGO.

THANK YOU. YES. THAT'S WHY I'M SEEKING A MOTION FOR THE SAME PLEASE.

THANK YOU. SO MOVED.
