THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME HERE. THANK YOU TIME AND ATTENTION AS ALWAYS. JUST OBSERVATION I'M SPEAKING AS REALTOR AND RESIDENT AS I LIVE IN CASCATA.

>> MICHAEL HOSHU. >> GOOD EVENING.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME HERE TODAY.

MICHAEL HOSHU. PARKLAND, FLORIDA.

I MOVED HERE FROM LAS VEGAS. I FOUND OUT ABOUT PARKLAND THROUGH THE TRAGEDY AND EVERYTHING THAT OCCURRED IN

[00:05:03]

THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY. I LIVED HERE REALLY MY WHOLE LIFE SINCE 1976. AND WHAT'S HAPPENING IN OUR COMMUNITY UNFORTUNATELY AT CASCATA WITH THE FRENCH DRAINS AND HEARING OUR NEIGHBORS NOT ONLY ON MY BLOCK BUT HERE TONIGHT ON WHAT'S HAPPENING WE APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT AND TRYING TO KEEP NOT ONLY OUR CASCATA BEAUTIFUL AND MAKING SURE THAT WE GET OUR ISSUES RESOLVED.

BUT ALSO EFFECTS PARKLAND AND THE CITY.

THEY CONTINUE TO KEEP THE PRESSURE ON LENNAR BEFORE WE GET EVERYTHING MOVING FORWARD IN CASCATA.

THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU.

GARY PIXEL. GOOD EVENING.

I'M GARY PIXEL. TOSCANA.

AT LOOKING AT THE AGENDA I'M DISAPPOINTED TO SEE THERE'S NO CONTINUED OFFICIAL MOTIONS DISCUSSION ABOUT LENNAR.

I WATCHED THE PREVIOUS COUNCIL COMMISSIONS.

THERE'S BEEN COMMENTS ABOUT MOTIONS MORATORIUM.

BUILDING PERMITS AND THE CITY REALLY NEEDS TO CONTINUE TO PUT THE PRESSURE ON LENNAR AS SOMEONE MENTIONED THE CLUBHOUSE BEING OPENED. WE'RE SEEING THE PERMITS AND CONSTRUCTION OF THE CASCATA CLUBHOUSE.

ANYBODY FROM THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT WALKS AROUND THERE THEY WILL SEE LOTS OF DEAD TREES STILL THERE.

BROKEN PIECES OF THE ROOF. CEMENT STRUCTURE AND HOW THIS ABLE TO PASS THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT IN THE CITY OF PARKLAND IS BEYOND ME. WE SEE THE NEW DEVELOPMENTS GOING IN. THE NEW HOMES BEING BUILT.

WE SEE THE FRENCH DRAINS. AND WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT LENNAR WILL BE PUSHED TO RETROFIT THE PROPERTIES THAT THEY KNOW HAVE THE PROBLEMS. THEY WERE WARNED WHEN WE WERE IN MIRALAGO. THEY ASSURED THE CITY, OH IT'S NOT TO BE A PROBLEM. ITS A PROBLEM.

THEY STARTED TO PUT THE SPRINKLERS ON.

QUITE THE LIMITED BASIS BECAUSE OF THE PROBLEM.

WE ARE ALL EXPERIENCING THE SAME BRANDING SIDEWALKS LOOK LIKE 30--YEAR-OLD COMMUNITY. THE CITY OF PARKLAND TO PUT PRESSURE ON LENNAR TO BE THE PROPER CORPORATE CITIZEN IT PORTRAYS ITSELF TO ITS SHAREHOLDERS.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> SUSAN LICKNER. NICE TO SEE ALL OF YOU IN PERSON. I'VE BEEN WATCHING YOU ON VIDEO FOR THE PAST SEVERAL MONTHS.

I'M SUSAN LICKNER. I LIVE 10 # 80 WINDWARD STREET IN CASCATA. AND SO I WILL APOLOGIZE.

YOU HAVE YET ANOTHER PERSON COMING TO TALK WITH YOU ABOUT LENNAR. I HAVE UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE.

BECAUSE I HELPED MY PARENTS BUILD A HOME RECENTLY OVER IN FOUR SEASONS. AND SO LOOKING AT THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MY EXPERIENCE MY EXPERIENCE BUILDING A HOME VERSES A LENNAR HOME.

I CAN TELL YOU THERE ARE VERY MARKED DIFFERENCES.

FOR EXAMPLE, I HAD A ROOF LEAK IN MY HOME IN CASCATA.

AND IT TOOK A VERY LONG TIME FOR THEM TO COME OUT, FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON, AND THEY ACTUALLY WOUND UP REFUSING TO REMEDIATE MY CEILING.

AS OPPOSED TO MY PARENTS HOME WHICH PRETTY MUCH MANAGED THEY WERE PAST THE ONE-YEAR WARRANTY.

THERE WAS A PLACE WHERE THE ROOF MET THE WALL.

THERE WAS A LEAK. THE PEOPLE WERE OUT THERE VERY SAME DAY. THE DRYWALL, ET CETERA WAS REMEDIATED. WITHIN A WEEK BACK TO NORMAL AND BEAUTIFUL. AND THEY WERE OUT OF WARRANTY.

MY CONCERN WHEN I HAD MY ROOF LEAK WAS WITHIN WARRANTY.

WHEN YOU DRIVE AROUND FOUR SEASONS YOU DON'T KNOW YOUR DRIVING THROUGH CONSTRUCTION ZONE.

WHEN YOU LIVE IN CASCATA YOU KNOW THERE'S CONSTRUCTION GOING ON ALL AROUND. AND IT SHOWS.

AND IT IS SUCH A STARK CONTRAST LIVING IN CASCATA WITH THE SHRUBBERY, AND ALL OF THE LANDSCAPING AND THE WAY THE SIDEWALKS LOOK AND THE SIDEWALK IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE CONTINUES TO LEAK. COMING OUT OF THE WATER METER BOX. LENNAR KEEP CLOSING MY TICKET WITHOUT TALKING TO ME. OUR COMMUNITY IS NOT UP TO THE

[00:10:05]

STANDARDS OF THE REST OF PARKLAND.

I WENT INTO OUR MIRALAGO CLUBHOUSE BECAUSE YOU KNOW EVERYBODY WAS POSTING ALL THESE PICTURES.

ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU KNOW WERE SUPPOSEDLY WRONG.

I CAN TELL YOU IT SMELLS IN THERE.

IF I CAN MELL THE MOLD THROUGH MY MASK, THEN I'M CERTAIN THERE MUST BE SOMETHING GOING ON IN THERE.

AND JUST TODAY SOMEONE WAS TALKING ABOUT HOW THE EQUIPMENT THAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE TURNING OVER TO US VERY, VERY SOON IN PARTS THAT CLUBHOUSE HAS NOT BEEN WELL MAINTAINED. IF WE TALK ABOUT 26 MILLION DOLLAR TURNOVER, OF THESE TWO CLUBHOUSES, TO OUR HOA'S.

WE'RE GOING TO NEED TO REALLY RELY ON PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO HELP US GET THROUGH THAT TURN OVER PROCEDURE. MY TIME IS UP.

BUT THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR ATTENTION.

AND THANK YOU, AGAIN FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP LEADING UP TO ALL

OF THIS. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> I JUST WANTED TO CONFIRM. YOU LIVE IN CASCATA BUT AT THE END YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT MIRALAGO CLUBHOUSE.

>> WE HAVE ACCESS TO BOTH. >> I UNDERSTAND.

I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE FOR MYSELF.

>> THANKS. >> NEXT.

>> LAST ONE SIGNED UP IS SUSAN GEORGE.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME. I'M SUSAN GEORGE 1015 COBLE COURT. I'M TOUCHING ON THE SAME ISSUES AS THE E-MAILS. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO COMMENT I THINK IT'S UNFAIR THAT THE HOMES THAT ARE NOW GOING TO BE CLOSING ARE GOING TO GET REFUNDS FOR GUTTERS AND HAVE DRAINS PUT IN. I'VE ONLY BE IN MY HOME TWO YEARS. THERE'S BEEN DRAINAGE ISSUES.

THAT'S NOT FAIR. WHY SHOULD WE NOT HAVE THE SAME BENEFIT IF IT'S DONE THERE.

IT'S NOT LIKE MY HOME IS TEN YEARS OLD.

THAT'S BASICALLY IT. JUST WANTED TO MAKE THAT

POINT. >> THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU. >> ANYONE ELSE FROM THE PUBLIC WISH TO SPEAK ON NONAGENDA ITEM?

>> NO ONE ELSE. OKAY BEFORE I START TO COMMENT. I WANT TO MAKE ONE COMMENT JUST SO THE FOLKS HERE FROM CASCATA.

JUST BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE IT ON THE AGENDA KEEP IN MIND THAT AS A COMMISSION, CITY STAFF, WE ARE EVERY DAY WORKING WITH LENNAR WHETHER IT'S THE CITY MANAGER, ASSISTANT CITY MANAGER, TO WORK THROUGH ALL THE ISSUES.

AGAIN JUST DON'T LET NOT SEEING IT ON THE AGENDA US HAVING PUBLIC DISCUSSIONS HERE NOT MEAN THAT BEHIND THE SCENES OUR STAFF IS WORKING EVERY DAY TO MAKE SURE WE TRY TO YOU KNOW GET THROUGH THESE ISSUES.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY WAS CLEAR WITH THAT.

WE HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN. WE'RE CONTINUING TO WORK TO BETTER AND WE DON'T NECESSARILY HAVE TO HAVE IT ON OUR AGENDA EVERY WEEK. BUT I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN. WE HEAR EVERYONE AND WE'RE CONTINUING TOGETHER TO WORK HARD TO TRY TO GET EVERYTHING RESOLVED AS BEST WE CAN. WITH THAT BEING SAID, WE'RE GOING TO GO TO COMMENTS BY THE COMMISSION.

I WILL START WITH COMMISSIONER BRIER.

>> THANK YOU, MAYOR. AS EVERYONE KNOWS THE RESULT OF OUR PROCLAMATION THIS IS WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH.

THE HUSBAND OF AN MAZING WOMEN AND FATHER OF TWO DAUGHTER ATTENTIVE THAT MARCH IS WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH.

I WANT TO LET ALL OF OUR RESIDENTS KNOW THAT THE PARKLAND LIBRARY HAVING AN EXHIBIT ALL MONTH.

SHOW CASING FEMALE ARTIST AS WELL AS TRAVELLING EXHIBIT CREATED BY THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES.

COMMEMORATING THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF RADFICATION 1920. ALSO IN MARCH IS COLO RECTAL AWARENESS MONTH. ONE IN 23 MEN AND ONE IN 25 WILL BE DIAGNOSED WITH COALEN CANCER.

THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF CANCER DEATHS IN THE U.S.

AND IT IS COMPLETELY PREVENTABLE WITH SCREENING AND COULD BE EASILY TREATED IF IT'S CAUGHT EARLY.

I WANT EVERYONE JUST TO BE AWARE OF THAT.

AND KEEP IN MIND ALL MONTH LONG AS WE BRING ATTENTION TO ISSUE WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH AND COLON AWARENESS MONTH.

I WANT TO THANK THE CITY FOR THEIR PRECIPITATION IN DOING THAT. THIS SUNDAY IS THE PARKLAND FARMER'S MARKET. BUT IT IS ALSO SPECIAL ITERATION OF IT BECAUSE WE HAVE A BUSINESS EXPO.

[00:15:01]

AND WE HAVE A NUMBER OF SMALL BUSINESSES THAT WILL BE SHOW CASED AT THE FARMER'S MARKET. FOR THOSE THAT COME OUT I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO THAT. NOT ONLY THE GREAT FARMER'S MARKET THAT YOU SEE. 9 BUT WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF BUSINESSES OUT THERE AS WELL AS THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.

IT'S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR THE RESIDENTS TO GET TO KNOW THOSE LOCAL BUSINESSES, ESPECIALLY IN THIS ECONOMY.

ESPECIALLY WITHCO COVID RESTRICTION.

SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESSES VITAL.

WE APPRECIATE YOUR HELP IN DOING THAT.

I HAVE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK WITH SOME OF THE FOLKS FROM THE PARKLAND CHALLENGER BASEBALL TIME.

I WANT TO GIVE A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE INVOLVED IN PARKLAND TEAM FOR CHALLENGER BASEBALL.

THE CUB WHOSE JUST KICK OFFED THEIR SEASON FOR THOSE THAT DON'T KNOW CHALLENGERS BASEBALL ADAPTIVE BASEBALL PROGRAM FOR SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN.

THE PLAYERS AND CHILDREN IN THE PROGRAM ALL THE VOLUNTEERS AND THOSE INVOLVED HAVE TREMENDOUS HEARTS.

WITH SUPPORT OF THEM THE RIZ YOI FAMILY FOUNDATION.

OUR OWN PARKS AND RECS DEPARTMENT AND AT ADVISORY BOARD MEMBER ALONG WITH OTHER FAMILY AND VOLUNTEERS.

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET OUT AND SEE A GAME THIS SEASON.

AND CHEER OUR PARKLAND CUBS ON.

IT WILL TOUCH YOUR HEART. IT'S AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY.

WITH THAT, THANK YOU. MAYOR I WILL TOUCH ON COVID. I WANT TO GIVE THANKS TO MIKE MAYOR OF SUNRISE. HE ARTICULATED MY THOUGHTS ON THE ISSUE AS THINGS ARE GOING ALONG.

I WILL PASS IT ON EVERYONE ELSE.

PEOPLE VACCINATED INCLUDING SENIORS ARE REFUSING TO WEAR MASK AND CONTINUE PRECAUTIONS BECAUSE THEY WERE VACCINATED AND THAT'S A MISTAKE. YES, VACCINES ARE NEEDED TO REDUCE SERIOUS ILLNESS. THEY SAVE LIVES.

THEY REOPEN OUR ECONOMY AND THEY GET SOME NORMALCY.

HOWEVER, VACCINES DO NOT PREVENCOID INFECTION.

VACCINES PROTECT AGAINST MODERATE OR SERIOUSES ILLNESS.

ONE IN 20 MAY STILL GET SICK OR DIE.

BASED ON CURRENT REPORTING VACCINE MAY NOT PREVENT YOU FROM TRANSMILTING COVID. VARIANTS ARE WORRYING.

MAINTAIN YOUR PRECAUTIONS EVEN IF YOU ARE VACCINATED.

RECENTLY THEY'VE OPENED UP FOR A LOT OF THE TEACHERS AND SOME OF OUR FRONT LINE PEOPLE TO GET VACCINATED.

BUT THAT IS NO EXCUSE NOT TO CONTINUE TO PROTECT YOURSELVES. AS WE BEGIN TO SEE MORE PEOPLE GETTING VACCINATED, WE CANNOT BECOME COMPLACENT.

EVEN THOSE WHO ARE VACCINATED CANNOT BECOME COMPLACENT.

BUSINESS OWNER REPORT WHEN THEY ARE ASKING PEOPLE TO WEAR A MASK, CUSTOMERS REFUSE AND THEY SAY THEY DON'T HAVE TO WEAR A MASK OR TAKE ANY PRECAUTIONS BECAUSE THEY WERE VACCINATED. THAT'S WRONG.

YES, VACCINES ARE WHAT WE NEED TO REDUCE SERIOUS ILLNESS AND SAVE LIVES. REOPEN THE ECONOMY AND GET BACK TO SEMBLANCE OF NORMALCY. BUT VACCINE PROTECTION MAY NOT BE ABSOLUTE I WILL FOREVER. SOME WHO ARE VACCINATED MAY STILL GET COVID AND GET VERY SICKEN IF VACCINATED YOU MAY BE ABLE TO TRANSMIT COVID TO SOMEONE ELSE.

AND EVERYONE MUST BE CAREFUL OF THE VARIANTS OF THE VIRUS AT THIS POINT. VACCINES DO NOT PREVENT THE COVID INFECTION. THEY STATISTICALLY SPEAKING HELP TO ONLY PREVENT SERIOUS ILLNESS.

IT'S CRITICALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE REMEMBER THAT AND CONTINUE IN OUR EFFORTS TO PROTECT EACH OTHER.

PHYSICAL DISTANCE. BE CAREFUL TO AVOID CLOSED SPACES. CROWDED PLACES, AND CLOSE CONTACT SETTINGS. THERE'S A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL. LET'S ALL GET THERE TOGETHER.

IN THAT REGARD THE STATE CURRENTLY PRIORITIZING VACCINATION FOR SENIORS AGES 65 AND OLDER.

LONG-TERM CARE FACILITY RESIDENTS AND STAFF.

HEALTH CARE PERSONAL AND DIRECT PATIENT CONTACT.

THEY ARE ALSO ALLOWING K-12 SCHOOL EMPLOYEES 50 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER, SWORN LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS 50 YEARS OR OLDER. FIREFIGHTER 50 YEARS R OLDER AND INDIVIDUALS DEEMED TO BE EXTREMELY VULNERABLE TO COVID BY WAY OF PRESCRIPTION OR LETTER FROM A PHYSICIAN.

DETAILS AND LINKS ARE AVAILABLE TO ANYONE THAT'S INTERESTED ON CITY OF PARKLAND.ORG OR BROWARDCOVIDVACCINE.COM. TODAY I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND THE PARKLAND CHAMBERS BREAKFAST AT WHICH OUR OWN CAV BOARD MEMBER RUPERT ROD GAVE ENLIGHTENING TALK ON ECONOMICS AND I WANT TO THANK THE PARKLAND CHAMBER AND IT'S OFFICERS TRUSTEES AND MEMBERS FOR THEIR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF

[00:20:02]

OUR PARKLAND BUSINESSES. AND ENCOURAGE ANYONE THAT HAS A BUSINESS IN COMMUNITY OR WORKS OUTSIDE THE COMMUNITY BUT WOULD LIKE TO MAINTAIN CONTACT WITH OUR BUSINESSES, TO PLEASE LOOK INTO THE PARKLAND CHAMBER.

I ALSO HAD AN OPPORTUNITY RECENTLY TO GO ON THE LIBRARY'S STORY WALK. IT WAS REALLY WONDERFUL.

AND GREAT TO SEE THE KIDS HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO ACTUALLY BE OUTDOORS AND READ A BOOK THAT WAS PROVIDD BY THE BROWARD COLLEGE AUTHORS WERE ALL BROWARD COLLEGE STUDENTS.

IT WAS REALLY GREAT. I WANT TO THANK MICHELLE AND THE OTHER PEOPLE AT THE LIBRARY.

JACKIE FOR MAKING SURE THAT HAPPENED.

IT WAS REALLY GREAT. THAT'S ALL I HAVE MAYOR.

THANK YOU. >> COMMISSIONER?

>> COMMISSIONER ISROW. >> GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

ECHO A LOT OF WHAT MY FELLOW COMMISSIONERS SAY AS USUAL.

VRY ELOQUENT. WE CURRENTLY HAVE A CITIZENS SURVEY OUT. THIS TO ME ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS THE CITY CAN DO.

WHY MANY ARE HERE SHARING YOUR CONCERNS ABOUT IMMEDIATE ISSUE THAT YOU RECOGNIZE ARE KIND OF YOUR PURVIEW, WE ALSO DON'T WANT TO LOSE SIGHT THE BIG WESTERLY PICTURE WHAT WE WANT TO SEE WITHIN THE COMMUNITY NOT JUST TODAY OR TOMORROW BUT BEYOND. IT'S IMPORTANT FOR US FOR THE CITY STAFF TO GAGE WHAT MOST OF YOU LIKE ABOUT THE CITY.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IMPROVEMENT ON.

WITHOUT THAT WE CAN MAKE DECISIONS BUT ULTIMATELY WE WANT THE BUY-IN OF THE COMMUNITY.

THIS OUR COMMUNITY. YOUR COMMUNITY.

IT'S ALL OF US. IT'S IMPORTANT, I KNOW IT CAN BE LONG. YOU KNOW, IF THERE'S QUESTIONS YOU WOULD PREFER NOT TO ANSWER.

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE AN ALL OR NOTHING.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE TIME.

READ THROUGH IT. PROVIDE AS MUCH FEEDBACK AS YOU CAN. AND ENCOURAGE YOUR NEIGHBORS AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS WHOEVER.

THE SAMPLE SIZE YOU KNOW THE BIGGER IT IS BETTER FOR US.

THE MORE ROBUST INFORMATION WE CAN WORK WITH.

THE BETTER THE RESULTS. THAT'S IMPORTANT.

SECONDLY, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY I DID PARTICIPATE IN THE NATIONAL READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY.

IT WAS FANTASTIC. I GIVE A LOT OF CREDIT TO CITY STAFF AND EVERYONE WHO HELPED PUT THAT TOGETHER.

WHAT I WOULD LIKE SAY FOR SOMEONE MYSELF WHO HASN'T BEEN TO A LIBRARY PER SE ACTIVE SENSE.

I'M GUILTY. MEA CULPA.

SEEING A LIBRARY THROUGH THE EYES OF YOUR KIDS REMINDS YOU OF THE UNDER ENDLESS WANDER THAT COMES THROUGH THE LIBRARY. I HOPE PEOPLE CAN GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO EITHER REVISIT IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN THERE.

TAKE A CHANCE TO EXPLORE IT AND BRING YOUR KIDS.

YOU WOULD BE AMAYFLOWERED EVERYONE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO DO. YOU WOULD BE AMAYFLOWERED WHAT THEY CAN DO IN THERE. THE STUFF THEY PICK UP AND ALL OF A SUDDEN WHAT PEEKS THEIR INTEREST.

IT'S A REALLY COOL OPPORTUNITY THAT MOST PEOPLE KIND OF OVERLOOK. MYSELF INCLUDED.

I DEFINITELY WANT TO POINT THAT OUT.

FARMER'S MARKET, BUSINESS EXPO IMPORTANT ONE.

HOPEFULLY PEOPLE GET OUT THERE SEE THERE'S PROBABLY A LOT OF SERVICES AND PRODUCTS YOU'VE BEEN RELYING ON THAT YOU COULD BE PROCURING WITHIN THE CITY AND HELPING SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS. AND LASTLY, WE'RE HAVING AN INTERESTING CONVERSATION BEFORE THE MEETING STARTED ABOUT JUST THE FACT THAT WE'RE ALMOST ONE YEAR.

WE'RE ONE YEAR INTO A GLOBAL PANDEMIC.

AND TO THINK WE'VE ALMOST BECOME ACCUSTOMED TO IT IS CRAZY THING TO THINK ABOUT. BUT IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT JUST KIND OF TAKE INVENTORY WITH YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. I THINK THIS TAKES A TOLL ON DIFFERENT PEOPLE IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

ANY ALL OF US CAN ATTEST TO THAT.

BUT WHEN YOU KIND OF LET IT BECOME YOUR NORMALCY AS OPPOSED TO KIND OF KEEP REMINDING YOURSELF CUTLER SAID A LIGHT AT THE END OF TUNNEL. THERE'S A LOT OF ANXIETY.

A LOT OF -- SOME PEOPLE HAVE VERY TOUGH TIME.

MANY PEOPLE ARE HAVING TOUGH TIMES.

AS COMMUNITY AGAIN THIS ONE OF THE THINGS PARKLAND DOES BETTER THAN MOST OTHER TOWN REGARDLESS OF ITS SIZE.

WE LOOK AFTER ONE ANOTHER. I WOULD ASK EVERYONE TO REACH OUT TO THAT FRIEND YOU HAVEN'T TALKED TO.

REACH OUT TO FAMILY MEMBER YOU HAVEN'T TALKED TO AND JUST REMEMBER THAT WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

THAT LITTLE BIT GOES A LONG WAY.

WITH THAT. BACK TO YOU.

>> THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER ISROW.

VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN. >> THANK YOU, MAYOR.

>> A LOT OF THE THINGS I WAS GOING TO TALK ABOUT.

EVERYONE ECHOED THE SAME THING.

JUST TO BRING ABOUT COMMISSIONER BRIER BROUGHT ABOUT OBVIOUSLY WE HAD A PROCLAMATION REGARDING WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH. AND THE BROWARD COUNTY COMMISSION ON IF STATUS OF WOMEN IS HONORING 15 WOMEN WHO EXEMPLIFIED THE VALUE OF THE VOTE.

I WANT TO CONGRATULATE OR ACKNOWLEDGE CHARLOTTE MATHER TAYLOR. SHE'S IS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE AREA AREA AGENCY ON AGEING OF BROWARD COUNTY.

[00:25:01]

COMMUNITIES. CONGRATULATIONS TO CHARLOTTE ON THAT RECOGNITION. COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO I GUESS WE HAD CAREER DAY AT HERON HEIGHTS.

IT WAS FANTASTIC. THE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS WERE ENGAGED AND INVOLVED. ESPECIALLY THROUGH THE ZOOM PROCESS OR MICROSOFT TEAMS. I DO WANT TO GIVE A SHOIT OUT TO MISS WALLMAN'S CLASS. EVERYONE KEEPS ASKING ME WHEN WILL I BRING CRESCENTS NEXT YEAR.

I PROMISE YOU NEXT YEAR IF WE'RE NOT IN ZOOM THEY WILL BE GETTING CRESCENTS. OVER THE WEEKEND WE HAD CHALLENGER BASEBALL. MY SON HAD PARTICIPATED YEARS AGO. IT'S A GREAT, GREAT, GREAT PROGRAM. I WANT TO THANK MELISSA AND SAM FOR BRINGING THAT BACK TO PARKLAND.

NOW THAT WE HAVE A FENCE ON FIELD FIVE.

THEY CAN CERTAINLY SWING FOR THE FENCES.

ON MONDAY, THE WASTE AND RECYCLING WORK GROUP MET.

AND WE DISCUSSED A GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE AND WE'RE RECOMMENDING THAT WE CREATE AN INDEPENDENT SPECIAL DISTRICT.

THIS RECOMMENDATION WILL BE GOING BACK TO ALL THE MUNICIPALITIES. AND NANCY, I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A WORKSHOP, IF WE CAN ON THAT.

IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE. JUST SO WE CAN GET EVERYONE UP TO SPEED ESPECIALLY NEW COMMISSIONERS AS WELL AS THE MAYOR AND COMMISSIONER CUTLER. SO THAT WE'RE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE WHEN I CAST MY VOTE FOR HOPEFULLY THE INDEPENDENT SPECIAL DISTRICT. AS COMMISSIONER CUTLER AND COMMISSIONER ISROW MET YESTERDAY WITH STORY WALK.

IT'S ANOTHER GREATENT EVENT THAT THE LIBRARY DAY.

UNLIKE READING IT FROM AN AUTHOR.

WHO IS MORE POPULAR. WE GOT THIS BOOK FROM COLLEGE STUDENTS AND IT WAS VERY WELL RECEIVED.

I WANT TO THANK JANET, JACKIE AND MICHELLE FOR COORDINATING TH EVENT. THEY ALWAYS DO A GREAT JOB.

FOR PURPOSES, WE ARE PART OF THE BROWARD READS COALITION.

AND THIS IS ONE OF OUR INITIATIVES.

I THINK THIS IS OUR THIRD OR FOURTH STORY WALK THAT WE'VE DONE. AND WE'RE ONE OF THE FIRST CITIES WHEN JOE GREEN WAS THE DIRECTOR OF THE LIBRARY.

I THINK TO DO THIS IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA.

THIS HAS BEEN CATCHING ON TO OTHER CITIES ALL OVER THE COUNTY. AGAIN, GREAT JOB.

I WANT TO CONGRATULATE ALA FRIEDMAN.

SHE WAS NAMED OR THE INTERNATIONAL MISS FLORIDA JUNIOR TEEN. AND P IN JULY SHE MOVES ON TO NATIONAL COMPETITION. BACKGROUND OF SOME OF HER SUCCESS. IN 2013 SHE WAS MISS FLORIDA PRINCESS IN THE SOUTHERN REGION.

AND IN 2016 SHE WAS NATIONAL AMERICA MISS FLOOR FLORIDA PROTEIN. PARKLAND PRETEEN IN ONE OF THOSE AREAS OR YEARS. THE BROWARD LEAGUE OF CITIES HAS THEIR SCHOLARSHIP OUT. IT IS DUE BY MARCH 12TH.

AND THEY ARE HAVING TWO SCHOLARSHIPS.

THIS OBVIOUSLY IS A COUNTY. COUNTYWIDE.

BUT YEARS IN THE PAST WE HAVE HAD SOME GREAT SUCCESS WITH SOME OF THE RESIDENTS AND STUDENTS IN PARKLAND.

AND THE SCHOLARSHIP IS THE TWO THEY ARE OFFERING FOR $2500 APIECE. IT'S SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF MONEY. AND THEN FINALLY, ON A PERSONAL NOTE I WANT TO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT I'VE BEEN APPOINTED AS ONE OF THE BROWARD LEAGUE OF CITY REPRESENTATIVES TO SERVE ON THE FLORIDA LEAGUE OF CITIES BOARD OF DIRECTORS FOR DISTRICT 13.

AND I ALSO WANT TO THANK THE MAYOR FOR THIS MONTH.

HE KIND OF INSTEAD OF PASSING THE GAVEL.

HE PASSED THE PEN AND ALLOWED ME TO PARTICIPATE AND WRITE IN SOME OF THE PUBLICATIONS. I THANK YOU MAYOR FOR THAT OPPORTUNITY. THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS.

>> GREAT. THANK YOU VICE MAYOR.

AND CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR APPOINTMENT.

THAT'S SHOWS HOW HARD YOU WORK.

NOT JUST HERE WITHIN THE CITY BUT OUTSIDE THE CITY.

I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL.

IT'S GREAT TO HEAR. I WILL REITERATE THE SAME THINGS. GOING LAST, OBVIOUSLY.

NOT MUCH NEW TO ADD. BUT I TO REITERATE IT'S GREAT TO HEAR EVERYONE SPEAK SO HIGHLY OF OUR LIBRARY. I THINK COMMISSIONER ISROW SAID IT BEST. TRY TO GET OUT AND VISIT THE LIBRARY. IT'S A TREASURE WITHIN OUR CITY. AND I KNOW COMMISSIONER CUTLER

[00:30:02]

IS HUGE ADVOCATE OF THE LIBRARY AS WELL.

KUDOS TO EVERYBODY WHO CITY STAFF, JACKIE, AND EVERYBODY ELSE WHO CONTINUES TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR LIBRARY IS SPECIAL. CHALLENGER BASEBALL IS YOU KNOW ALWAYS A GREAT THINGS FOR US.

IT'S GREAT BACK IN PARKLAND. IT'S A SPECIAL TIME TO GO OUT THERE AND SEE OUT MUCH FUN EVERYBODY HAS TO BE OUT THERE AND YOU KNOW PLAYING GAMES, AND TO THAT, WE HAVE SOFTBALL OPENING DAY. BASEBALL PARKLAND LITTLE LEAGUE STARTING. AND YOU KNOW KUDOS TO PARKS AND REC DEPARTMENT. PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT, ALL THE VOLUNTEERS THAT GIVE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR CHILDREN TO BE OUT THERE AND PLAY. I THINK IT'S SO IMPORTANT THAT WE TRY TO DO AS MUCH. HAVE AS MUCH NORMAL AS POSSIBLE. I KNOW WE DO SCHOOL BY ZOOM.

AND WE'RE WEARING MASKS. AND YOU KNOW, SOME KIDS ARE GOING INTO SCHOOL. AND IT'S -- IT'S STRESSFUL FOR OUR CHILDREN AND PARENTS AS WELL.

YOU KNOW BUT IT'S HAVING THAT LITTLE TIME OUTSIDE.

YOU KNOW OR IN THE LIBRARY OR WHEREVER IT IS THAT KIDS HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE IS WONDERFUL THING.

THAT'S ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS ABOUT LIVING HERE IN THE CITY OF PARKLAND. AND OBVIOUSLY WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH IT WOULD BE REMISS NOT TO MENTION YOU KNOW BEING FATHER OF TWO DAUGHTERS AS WELL.

AND HUSBAND TO A STRONG INTELLIGENT WIFE IT WOULD BE REMISS TO SAY HOW PROUD I AM AND HOW HAPPY I AM FOR ALL THE PAST WOMEN WHO HAVE MADE THE PATH THAT MY DAUGHTERS WILL TAKE A LITTLE BIT EASIER. AND I'M EXCITED TO SEE WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS FOR THEM. TO REITRATE ABOUT THE SURVEY.

IT'S IMPORTANT. WE ARE READY TO GO INTO STRATEGIC PLANNING. WHETHER IT'S THIS YEAR OR NEXT YEAR. IT'S IMPORTANT TO HAVE AS MUCH FEEDBACK AS POSSIBLE FROM THE RESIDENTS.

WE LOVE WHEN YOU COME HERE TO OUR MEETING AND YOU SPEAK UP.

WE DON'T WANT TO HEAR NEGATIVE THINGS.

BUT THAT GIVES US INFORMATION. SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO HEAR THE GOOD WITH THE BAD TO MAKE SURE WE CAN YOU KNOW DO BETTER FOR THE RESIDENTS WHILE WE'RE UP HERE.

AND THAT'S ALL I HAVE SO I WILL GO APPROVAL OF THE

[7. Approval of the Agenda ]

HOW DO WE HANDLE? I THOUGHT WE WERE APPROVING THE AGENDA. WE JUST HEAR AS NORMAL ITEM.

GOOD ENOUGH. >> YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SECOND.

>> SECOND. >> MOTION BY VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN AND SECOND BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

ALL IN FAVOR. >> AYE.

>> PLEASE SHOW IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

[8. Consent Agenda ]

APPROVAL OF THE CONSENT 9AGENDA.

>> AND THEN WE WILL ADDRESS 8-A AFTER.

>> WE HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE.

I JUST WANT TO MENTION ONE THING ON THE CONSENT AGENDA.

THANK YOU VICE MAYOR FOR BRINGING THIS TO OUR ATTENTION TO MAKE SURE WE PUT THIS ON OUR AGENDA.

AND OBVIOUSLY THANK STATE REPRESENTATIVE FOR BRING THING UP. IT'S IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE WE ACKNOWLEDGE HER FOR ALL THE WORK THAT SHE'S DOING.

IN SUPPORTING US. THANK YOU TO REPRESENTATIVE AND AGAIN THANK YOU VICE MAYOR FOR MAKING SURE THIS MADE IT

[00:35:02]

TO OUR AGENDA. I HAVE A MOTION BY VICE-MAYOR MAYERSOHN. AND SECOND BY COMMISSIONER

BRIER. >> AND PUBLIC COMMENT BEFORE

YOU VOTE ON THAT. >> ANYONE FROM THE PUBLIC ON

CONSENT AGENDA? >> NO.

OKAY. ANY MOTION? VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN, SECOND BY COMMISSIONER BRIER.

ALL IN FAVOR. >> AYE.

>> PLEASE SHOW IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

>> REGULAR AGENDA. >> ITEM 8-A RESOLUTION 2021-016 CITY WIDE PRESSURE CLEANING SERVICES EXPENDITURES INCREASE.

>> GOOD EVENING MR. MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS.

WE'RE PIVOTING ON THIS. AND HERE'S WHAT WE ARE DOING.

BECAUSE OF THE ON SET OF COVID.

WE DO A LOT OF ADDITIONAL CLEANING.

WE'RE CLEANING SERVICES THAT -- SURFACES THAT WE HAVEN'T NORMALLY CLEANED IN THE PAST AS REGULARLY AS WE HAVE. WE WERE USING ONE OF THE VEHICLES TO DO SOME OF THE OUTSIDE CLEANING ON A PIGGYBACK CONTRACT AT NINE CENTS A SQUARE FOOT.

THEY HAVE A AUXILIARY ITEM FOR OUTSIDE OF CURB AND GUTTER AND SIDEWALK FOUR CENTS A SQUARE FOOT.

I'M NOT ASKING YOU REALLY FOR ANY ADDITIONAL MONEY.

I'M ASKING TO USE OPERATIONAL MONEY TO DO MORE ALTERNATE FOUR CENTS A SQUARE FOOT. I NEED TO HAVE YOUR PERMISSION TO DO MORE. IT MAKES GOOD BUSINESS SENSE.

CONSOLIDATING EVERYTHING AS A PRESSURE CLEANING UNDER ONE WINDOW. WE HAVE PRESSURE CLEANING IN-HOUSE. WE WILL CONTINUE TO SPOT CLEAN WITH THAT AS STAFF TIME ALLOWS FOR AND SO FORTH.

THIS GIVES US ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY AT A GREAT RATE UNDER ONE UMBRELLA TO BE -- GET THE ADDITIONAL CLEANINGS AND THE DEEP CLEANINGS THAT WE NEED TO DO FROM A SURFACE STANDPOINT IN THE CITY.

>> VICE MAYOR? >> YEAH?

>> THE REASON I BROUGHT THIS FORWARD WHEN I FIRST READ THIS IT WASN'T CLEAR TO ME THE PURPOSE AND WHEN I HAD MY ONE ON ONE AND SPOKE WITH BILL. THE BACKUP OR WHATEVER ELSE DOESN'T DO IT JUSTICE. WHEN BILL CAME TO US LESS THAN LAST YEAR AND TALKED ABOUT HE WAS -- THE RESPONSE WAS NO.

WE THINK WE HAVE IT COVERED. I THINK IT WAS MORE THE STREETS, SIDEWALKS AND GUTTERS AND ALL THAT STUFF.

NOT NECESSARILY LOOKING AT THAT WE WOULD REALLY NECESSARILY NEED MORE IN DEPTH CLEANING IN OTHER AREAS LIKE MAYBE DOING THE PLAYGROUND THREE TIMES A YEAR AS OPPOSED TO ONCE A YEAR. THAT'S CORRECT

>> THIS IS SOMETHING I APPLAUD BILL AND HIS STAFF TO DUE DILIGENCE THAT HE TOOK TO REALLY LOOK AT HOW TO PIVOT AND HOW TO TURN. AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE BID THAT WAS DONE I GUESS IT WAS THREE YEARS AGO THE FIRST BID IN 2019, THE OPTIONAL SERVICE WAS 25 CENTS A SQUARE FOOT FOR

ADDITIONAL SERVICE. >> THIS 4 CENTS.

IN RETROSPECT IF WE WOULD USE THE SAME 500,000 SQUARE FEET AT THE 25 CENTS WE WOULD BE SPENDING 125,000.

WE'RE NOW ONLY BEING ASKED FOR 20,000.

IT'S NOT ADDITIONAL SERVICE. IT'S JUST BEING ABLE TO USE THINGS MORE COST EFFECTIVELY. I THINK -- AM I SAYING IT

CORRECTLY? >> COMMISSIONER, YOU HIT IT

RIGHT ON THE EDGE. >> I JUST WANT TO MAKE THE PUBLIC AWARE THAT THIS IS WHAT WE'RE DOING AND THAT'S WHY I PULLED IT FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA.

>> OKAY. COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

MOTION TO APPROVE. >> SECOND.

>> THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THAT UP.

AND THANK YOU FOR POINTING THAT OUT.

BECAUSE I KNOW A LOT OF TIME YOU GUYS DON'T ALWAYS HEAR THE POSITIVE THINGS THAT YOU'RE DOING.

BUT IT'S IMPORTANT AND THANK YOU VICE MAYOR THAT THE RESIDENTS KNOW HOW HARD YOU GUYS WORK FOR US, HOW HARD YOU TRY TO SAVE MONEY. DOING THINGS BECAUSE.NOT JUST - THIS IS PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THAT.

I JUST WANT TO ECHO WHAT VICE MAYERSOHN SAID.

I HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER AND SECOND BY COMMISSIONER BRIER. ROLL CALL.

[9. Regular Agenda ]

>> ITEM 9-A. RESOLUTION 20216-011.

[00:40:05]

THE LOXAHATCHEE IS A JOINT PROJECT THAT IS FUNDED THROUGH THE BROWARD MPO AND INCLUDE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OVERSIGHT BY THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION.

THE PROJECT INCLUDES CONSTRUCTION OF ROUNDABOUTS, BIKE LANES, ROADWAY LIGHTING, TRAFFIC SIGNAL MODIFICATION ON STATE ROUTE 7. THE TOTAL PROJECT COST IS $24,186. IT HAS BEEN BUDGETED.

THE AMOUNT IS BELOW OUR ORIGINAL ESTIMATE THAT WE HAD FOR 2.2 MILLION. THIS AGREEMENT HAS BEEN REVIEWED BY THE CITY ATTORNEY. STAFFER REQUESTING APPROVAL OF

FDOT LOCALLY FUNDED AGREEMENT. >> DOES ANYBODY

HAVE -- COMMISSIONER BRIER. >> YEAH.

YOU WANT TO MAKE -- SHOULD I MAKE A MOTION.

>> DISCUSS FIRST THEN TO PUBLIC.

THEN WE'LL COME BACK. >> MY ONLY COMMENTS ON THIS ARE THIS. I'VE BEEN CONTACTED BY A NUMBER OF RESIDENTS ON THE LOX ROAD ISSUE.

I SHARE THEIR CONCERN. I TALK ABOUT THIS EXTENSIVELY.

I HAVE HEARD FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS THAT LOX ROAD WILL BE IMPROVED AND WILL BE MADE SAFER.

THE ADDITION OF THE GAURDRAILS HAS HELPED WITH THAT.

AND OTHER ADDITIONS HAVE HELPED.

THE REALITY IS THAT LOX ROAD CONTINUES TO BE DANGEROUS DRIVE. I DON'T LET MY CHILDREN DRIVE ON IT. I AM CONCERNED ABOUT IT.

A LOT OF THE RESIDENT IN THE WEDGE AND FOUR SEASONS AND OTHER COMMUNITIES ARE CONCERNED ABOUT.

I CAN TELL YOU THIS. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE TO THIS PROJECT IS THAT IT WILL TAKE SOMETIME.

AND IT'S GOING TO BE INCONVENIENCE FOR THE RESIDENTS FOR A PERIOD OF TIME WHEN THE CONSTRUCTION STARTS.

BUT KNOW THIS. SEEING THE PROGRESS THAT I'VE FOR LOX ROAD TO BE MADE SAFER AND EASIER FOR RESIDENTS TO TRAVERSE IS GOING TO BE PAINFUL PROCESS DURING THE PERIOD OF TAME. BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF IT WE ARE ALL GOING TO BE SO MUCH THANKFUL FOR IT.

I KNOW THAT THE CITY STAFF AND COMMEND YOU ALL IS WORKING HARD FOR THIS. I AGAIN 30 YEARS IN THE MAKING. AND I'VE LOST CLASSMATES.

WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IT BEFORE.

STONEMAN DOUGLAS WE LOST A NUMBER OF CLASSMATES TO ACCIDENTS IN THE LOX ROAD CANAL.

AS A RESULT OF THAT STREET. I'M EXCITED FOR THIS STREET TO GET DONE. I KNOW IN TWO YEARS OR 1 1/2 WHEN CONSTRUCTION STARTS HOPEFULLY, IT'S GOING TO BE A PAIN FOR THE RESIDENT. BUT KNOW THAT IT'S GOING TO BE SO MUCH BETTER WHEN IT'S COMPLETED.

I WILL BE EXCITED ABOUT THAT. >> THANK YOU.

VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN. I KIND OF ECHO THE SAME SENTIMENTS AS COMMISSIONER BRIER.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I WOULD ASK IS THAT YOU KNOW, IS THERE ANYWAY THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO PUT PRESSURE ON FDOT, MPO, BROWARD COUNTY TO MOVE THIS UP.

BECAUSE THEY CONTINUE TO PUSH IT BACK AND MY CONCERN IS ECONOMY AND TAX DOLLARS SURTAX DOLLARS ALTHOUGH WE'RE FUNDING OUR PORTION. I'M NOT SURE HOW MUCH FDOT AND BROWARD COUNTY WILL FUND THEIR PORTION.

IT JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WHATEVER WE CAN DO LEGALLY WE CONTINUE TO PUT PRESSURE TO MAKE SURE THAT IS DONE FROM A -- AS COMMISSIONER BRIER SAID.

>> THAT'S ONE OF MY QUESTIONS AS WELL.

>> IF I COULD ALLOWED TO RESPOND.

THE FUNDING THAT WE'RE DOING HERE TONIGHT.

THE COUNTY HAS TO DO A SIMILARENT.

THEN ONCE THEY ARE IMPLEMENTED IT LOCKS IN THE ACTUAL FUNDING OF THIS PROJECT. MPO DOES THE SAME PROCESS.

CITY DOES THE SIMILAR PROCESS. LATER ITEM THAT ANTHONY WILL GET TO THE ESCROW ACCOUNT TALK ONCE WE EXECUTE THE AGREEMENT WE'VE 30 DAYS TO GET THAT MONEY TO THE FDOT ESCROW AGENT. THEY HAVE SIMILAR TIME.

ALL THE FUNDING FOR THE PROJECT WILL BE LOCKED IN WAY AHEAD OF THE PROJECT BEING STARTED.

>> TO THAT. I KNOW THEY'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT DESIGN. THIS IS REALLY THE START OF THE PROJECT. WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE TODAY IS OFFICIALLY ACKNOWLEDGING THIS PROJECT IS HAPPENING.

YOU KNOW IT'S GOING TO BE FUNDED.

AND IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN. HOPEFULLY WE CAN CONTINUE PRESSURE LIKE VICE MAYOR SAYS TO MAKE SURE IT STAYS ON TRACK. BECAUSE ITS SUPPOSED TO START IN 2021 AND NOW 2023 AND HOPEFULLY COMPLETED AROUND

[00:45:04]

2025. YOU KNOW, WE JUST YOU KNOW TO VICE MAYOR POINT WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE.

THIS IS TRUE SIGN ON PAPER THAT THIS PROJECT IS HAPPENING. AND IT'S GOING TO BE FUNDED AND FINALLY COMPLETED. ALL OF US UP HERE ARE VERY LOOKING FOR WORTH TO THAT HAPPENING.

ANYONE ELSE HAVE COMMENTS? >> COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

>> I'M ALSO VERY GLAD TO SEE THAT HAPPENING.

LOX HAS HISTORY OF HAVING MANY SOMETHINGS DONE TO IT.

STARTED AS SIX-MILE STRETCH OF BASICALLY A DIRT ROAD AND IF YOU WANTED TO TAKE YOUR FISHING BOAT AND TRAILER DOWN TO THE EVERGLADES YOU HAD A PRETTY BUMPY RIDE TO GET ALL THE WAY OUT OUT THERE. FOR MANY, MANY YEARS, THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE DID. AND THEN IT TOOK ACTUALLY AT THE TIME PALM BEACH COUNTY TO COME IN AND PAVE THE ROAD TO BEGIN WITH. AND THAT ALSO WAS A PROJECT THAT TOOK THEM MANY YEARS TO GET OFF THE GROUND AND MANY YEARS TO GET THE FUNDING. IT IS LIKE MOVING HEAVEN AND EARTH TO GET THINGS DONE ON THAT ROAD.

BUT, THIS IS A HISTORIC MOMENT BECAUSE WE ARE GETTING THIS DONE. AND IT WILL BE DONE BECAUSE WE'RE DOING THIS TONIGHT. KUDOS TO THE STAFF AND TO OUR COMMISSION AND THE FORMER COMMISSIONS THAT HAVE PUT THIS IN PLAY. I'M VERY GLAD TO SEE THIS GETTING ACCOMPLISHED. AND HOPEFULLY AS -- AS HAS BEEN POINTED OUT WE WILL PUT PRESSURE ON THEM TO GET IT

DONE IN A TIMELY FAST. >>

>> COMMISSIONER ISROW. >> DO WE HAVE ANNOUNCEMENT OF LIKELIHOOD OF WHAT THIS EXCEEDS TO.

WE THINK THIS CLOSE -- OBVIOUSLY DELAYED CAN CAUSE INCREASE IN COST. I GUESS TO EVERYONE ELSE'S POINT. IF THEY START AND THERE BECOMES A DELAY. HOW DO WE HAVE SOME MORE ASSURANCE OF WHAT THE POTENTIAL COST IS GOING TO BE?

>> NOT A PROBLEM. >> THE ACTUAL BIDDING OR PROCUREMENT PROCESS FOR THE PROJECT WILL KICK OFF NEXT SUMMER. THAT'S WHEN WE WILL GET A TRUE UNDERSTANDING OF THE COST. THIS DOT ESTIMATE.

THEY RIGID PROCESS FOR ESTIMATING.

THEN THEY GO THROUGH ENGINEERING PROCESS AS WELL.

BUT ULTIMATELY WHEN IT GOES OUT TO BID WHEN YOU SEE THE TRUE NUMBER. AS REFLECTED IN THE AGREEMENT IF THERE ARE ANY OVERRUNS THE CITY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR IT.

>> OKAY. ANYONE FROM THE PUBLIC HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ON THIS AGENDA ITEM?

>> NOPE. >> MOTION TO APPROVE.

>> SECOND. >> MOTION TO APPROVE BY COMMISSIONER ISROW AND SECOND BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

ROLL CALL.

>> ITEM 9-B RESOLUTION 2021-017, LOCKS ROAD HIGHWAY MAINTENANCE MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT.

THE TITLE 23 OF THE U.S. SECTION 116 REQUIRES AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN FDOT AND THE CITY.

THE AGREEMENT GRANTS FDOT RIGHTS OF ACCESS FOR CONSTRUCTION. THIS HAS BEEN REVIEWED BY THE CITY ATTORNEY. THE STAFF REQUESTING AIL PATROL OF HIGHWAY MAINTENANCE MEMORANDUM.

IN SHORT, THE DOT DOES NOT PULL PERMITS IN THE LOCAL AGENCY WHICH THEY WORK. THEY ENTER AN AGREEMENT WITH THE CITY TO GIVE THEM RIGHT OF ACCESS.

THIS AGREEMENT IS GRANTED. >> OKAY.

THIS IS STEP TWO. ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS

QUESTIONS? >> VICE MAYOR?

>> SO THIS INCLUDES OUR COLLABORATION WITH SOME OF THE HOA'S OR SOME OF THE HOMES THAT ARE ACROSS LOXAHATCHEE;

CORRECT? >> THAT'S CORRECT.

>> THEY CAN'T ACCESS PRIVATE PROPERTY.

WHAT THEY'VE DONE BASICALLY TASKED THE CITY WITH COORDINATION FOR LOCAL HOA TO REMOVE CONFLICT WITHIN THE RIGHT-OF-WAY IF THERE IS ANY. WHEN THEY COME TO THE ACTUAL PROJECT, WE REVIEW THE PROJECT AS A CITY.

WE GIVE THEM OUR INPUT AND NOW THIS AGREEMENT ALLOWS THE

RIGHT-OF-WAY FOR CONSTRUCTION. >> THANK YOU.

ANYONE HAVE COMMENTS? >> I JUST HAVE A COUPLE OF COMMENTS ECHOING THAT. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT WILL JUST APPEAR IN THE CITY AT SOME POINT.

AND RESIDENTS SHOULD APPRECIATE THE AMOUNT OF HARD WORK THAT GOES INTO IT BY THE CITY STAFF OR PLANNER AND MANAGER, CITY ATTORNEY ASSISTANT CITY MANAGER AS WELL AS PLANNING AND ZONING BOARD WHO HAD THIS COME BEFORE THEM.

I WANT TO THANK ALL OF THOSE FOLKS FOR WORKING HARD.

BECAUSE THIS WILL ALLEVIATE A LOT OF THE TRAFFIC AND CONGESTION. THERE WAS AN ACCIDENT THE OTHER DAY AT THIS INTERSECTION WHERE PARKLAND GOLF MEETS UNIVERSITY DRIVE. AND SO THIS WILL HOPEFULLY HELP TO SAVE INJURIES. SAVE LIVES AS WELL AS ALLEVIATE THE TRAFFIC ON THAT ROAD.

I WANT TO THANK DAVID GOTT AND THE PARKLAND GOLF HOMEOWNER'S ASSOCIATION FOR THEIR COORDINATION OF THIS AGREEING TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAINTENANCE.

THANK YOU. COMMENTS BY THE BROWARD

[10. Comments by the Broward Sheriff's Office ]

SHERIFF'S OFFICE. IS CAPTAIN MULLIGAN ON

[00:55:13]

VACATION? THANK YOU. AT THE REQUEST OF SEVERAL PEOPLE WE PUT THIS TOGETHER. I WILL PUSH IT OUT.

WE WILL GET IT OUT TO THE COMMUNITY PREFERABLY TO THE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO HAVE CHILDREN THAT HAVE THE BICYCLE TAKE A LOOK AT THAT IF EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THIS IS GREAT.

LAST WEEK. LAST THURSDAY WE HAD A RASH.

TO REMIND PEOPLE TO LOCK THEIR DOORS.

WE HAD A THEFT AT CONSTRUCTION SITE.

THAT WAS IN THE FALLS LAST SATURDAY 3,000 WORTH OF PLYWOOD TAKEN. WE'RE WORKING ON THAT.

>> I JUST WANT TO ASK, IF I CAN INTERRUPT YOU TO ASK A QUESTION. I SAW ONE OF THE VEHICLES THAT WAS BROKEN INTO A FIREARM WAS TAKEN.

>> CORRECT. >> WHAT -- WHAT DO WE DO OR THE BROWARD SHERIFF'S OFFICE DO TO LOOK IF YOU HAVE -- EVERYONE HAS A RIGHT TO FIREARM.

BUT THERE'S CERTAIN PROTOCOLS AS FAR AS HAVING IT LOCKED.

SAFETY, THOSE TYPES OF THINGS. IS THERE ANY FOLLOW UP TO THAT

OWNER OF THAT FIREARM? >> UNFORTUNATELY THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF WHAT THEY HAD IT IN A LOT OF PEOPLE AREN'T PROUD OF THE FIREARM. THEY LIKE TO SAY IF THEY HAD IT HIDDEN AND SECURED AND LOCK.

THERE'S NO REPEARL REPERCUSSIONS TO IT.

THEY ARE THE VICTIM OF THE CRIME.

IT'S HARD TO GO AFTER THE VICTIM FOR A MISTAKE LIKE THIS. WHAT WE DO WE PUT THE FIREARM IN THE SYSTEM. WE TRACK IT DOWN.

AND FOLLOW UP UP WITH THINGS LIKE THAT.

>> OKAY. AS FAR AS THE VICTIMS WHO LOST THEY'VE GUN THERE'S NO REPERCUSSIONS.

>> I WAS CONTACTED BY A RESIDENT THAT MAINTAINED THEY BELIEVE THEIR VEHICLE WAS LOCKED.

I WANT TO ECHO FOR ALL THE RESIDENTS.

IF WE GIVE YOU KNOW THE POTENTIAL THIEVES SORT OF A SOFTBALL. IT WILL HAVE REPERCUSSIONS ON OTHERS. EVEN IF YOUR CAR IS LOCKED BUT YOU HAVE YOUR PURSE IN IT OR ITEMS IN THERE THAT ARE VISIBLE AND THEY ARE BREAKING INTO A CAR THAT'S UNLOCKED NEXT DOOR. AND THEY SEE YOURS, YOU KNOW IT'S JUST AN EASY TARGET. YOU JUST THROW A SOFTBALL TO THEM. I THINK THAT'S AN ISSUE THAT JUST PERMEATES THROUGHOUT AND WE SEE THIS.

THIS IS BECOME A TARGET AND A CRIME OF OPPORTUNITY.

AND WE JUST NEED TO AS A COMMUNITY TAKE EVERYTHING OUT OF YOUR CAR. LOCK YOUR DOORS.

LOCK YOUR GARAGE DOOR TO THE HOUSE.

BECAUSE IF YOU LEAVE YOUR CAR OPEN WITH YOUR GARAGE DOOR CLICKER IN. THEY CAN GET INTO YOUR GARAGE OR YOUR HOUSE. OUR RESIDENTS HAVE TO BE

VIGILANT. >> ONE THINGS I WANTED TO SAY, I THINK SOMETHING WE NEED TO DO, THIS IS PROBABLY IT THOSE BE HALF A DOZEN TIME I'VE SEEN A FIREARM STOLEN FROM SOMEONE'S CAR. AGAIN, I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING WE NEED TO STRESS. I KNOW WE DO THE LOCK YOUR CARS. I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S BAD TO MENTION SPECIFICALLY. I DON'T KNOW IF WE DO THAT, THAT YOUR FIREARMS NEED TO BE LOCKED.

THEY SHOULDN'T -- I DON'T KNOW OKAY.

I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING YES YOUR CAR SHOULD BE LOCKED.

BUT TO ME IT'S DISTRESSING TO SEE A FIREARM BEING STOLEN.

BECAUSE ANYONE WHO WILL BREAK INTO YOUR CAR IS ALREADY DOING SOMETHING THAT'S NOT VERY GOOD.

AND FOR THEM TO HAVE A FIREARM IN THEIR POSSESSION IS MUCH WORSE. AND YOU KNOW WE NEED TO MAKE SURE OUR RESIDENTS UNDERSTAND LOCK THEM UP.

BRING THEM IN THE HOUSE. OR WHATEVER IT IS.

[01:00:03]

YOU KNOW THOSE ARE THINGS THAT ARE -- THAT'S YOU KNOW -- THAT'S SOMETHING WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE NEED TO ADDRESS A LITTLE BIT. I'M STARTING TO SEE THAT MUCH MORE OFTEN. THAT TO ME IS DISTRESSING.

EVERYTHING HAS THE RIGHT TO A FIREARM.

BUT WITH THAT COMES A DUTY TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE SAFE, YOU ARE FOLLOWING THE PRECAUTIONS THAT ARE YOU KNOW REQUIRED OF YOU. THAT'S SOMETHING I THINK WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE EMPHASIZE A LITTLE BIT.

IF WE COULD DO THAT, I WOULD APPRECIATE IT.

THAT'S REALLY ALL I WANTED TO SAY ON THAT.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE EMPHASIZE THAT WE'RE SAFE.

>> WE HAD A CREW THAT CAME THROUGH THIS MORNING.

SMASH AND GRAB. THEY WERE TARGETING BUSINESSES IN THE CORAL SPRINGS AREA. WE FOLLOWED THEM TO SUNRISE.

PARKLAND. THAT HAPPENED THIS MORNING.

BRIER'S POINT YOU KNOW PARKLAND OBVIOUSLY YOU KNOW PEOPLE HAVE AN OPINION OF THE RESIDENT HERE IN PARKLAND.

AND YOU KNOW THEY FIGURE THEY COULD GET SOMETHING OUT OF THEIR CAR OR WHATEVER. WE MAKE IT EASY BECAUSE WE DON'T LOCK OUR CARS OR LOCK OUR DOORS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. WHICH OBVIOUSLY YOU KNOW WE SHOULD BE DOING IN GATED COMMUNITY WILL NOT KEEP YOUR CAR FROM BEING STOLEN OR HOUSE FROM BEING BROKEN INTO.

YOU KNOW YOU HAVE RESIDENTS INSIDE THAT COULD BE DOING THOSE TYPE OF THINGS. YOU NEED TO TAKE THOSE PRECAUTIONS. FOR ME IT'S ALARMING TO CONTINUELY SEE FIREARMS BEING LEFT IN PEOPLE'S CARS.

>> COMMISSIONER ISROW. CYPRESS HEAD IS A GATED COMMUNITY. I'M CURIOUS IS THIS SOME SORT OF BELIEF PEOPLE ARE LIVING IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD OR ARE WE ABLE TO GET. I'VE BEEN CYPRESS MANY TIMES.

THEY TAKE A COPY -- THEY TAKE HIGH DRIVER'S LICENSE.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR IN TERMS OF HAVING A SET GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD AT A SPECIFIC TIME OR MORE THAT WE THINK THERE'S PEOPLE INTERNALLY.

>> THERE'S SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAY.

THEY ARE PULLING OFF THE SIDE OF THE ROAD.

DROPPING KIDS OFF. THEN THEY DRIVE OFF.

WHEN THEY ARE DONE WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

THEY WILL GET ON THE PHONE DRIVE ALONG THE CURB.

CLIMB OVER THE GATE WHERE THE ACTUAL AND GET OUT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD JUMP IN THE CAR AND LEAF.

THEY ARE NOT GETTING ON THE PROPERTY.

WE'RE DOING SECURITY SURVEYS THROUGHOUT ALL THE ASSOCIATION.

. >> I THINK THE HOA'S TO THE LIEUTENANT'S POINT I KNOW THEY ARE DOING REST OF BOARD ASSISTANCE. HOA NEED TO BE MORE VIGILANT WITH THEIR SECURITY. I KNOW IT'S HAPPENED IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD AND OTHERS PEOPLE WILL CALL THE HOUSE AND GET INTO YOUR GATE THAT DON'T BELONG.

I THINK MOST OF THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT DON'T LIVE INSIDE THE COMMUNITIES. THEY ARE GETTING IN SOMEHOW.

WHETHER THE VEHICLE GET OR IN ON FOOD HARDER TO STOP.

BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE. WE NEED EVERYONE TO WORK IN CONCERT TO BE VIGILANT. AS I SAID BEFORE.

JUST BECAUSE YOUR LOCK YOUR CAR.

I KNOW THE RESIDENT THAT HAD THIS HAPPEN TO THEM IS DEVASTATED. JUST BECAUSE YOU LOCK YOUR CAR DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU YOU JUST GOT TO BE SMART AND TAKE EVERYTHING OUT AND PUT IT IN THE GARAGE.

AND TAKE CERTAIN SAFETY PRECAUTIONS.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU ARE DOING.

>> ANYONE ELSE? >> COMMENTS BY THE CORAL

[11. Comments by the Coral Springs/Parkland Fire Department ]

SPRINGS PARKLAND FIRE DEPARTMENT.

>> DO YOU HAVE A HAND OUT TOO? >> LOOK AT THIS.

YOU HAVE A BOOK. HE GAVE US PIECE OF PAPER.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING. I WILL VERY BRIEF.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU RECAP OF LAST MONTH.

TOTAL OF 181 INCIDENTS. 117 OF THOSE WERE FIRE OR EMF

[01:05:04]

RELATED AND 64 WERE MISCELLANEOUS.

OF THE 17, 115EMS AND TWO WERE FIRE RELATED.

I THINK WE HAVE THE NOTIFICATIONS SITUATION ALL SQUARED AWAY WITH THE INFORMATION.

I APPRECIATE YOU GUYS DOING OUR TEST LAST MEETING.

WE THINK WE GOT EVERYBODY OPTED BACK IN.

THE CITY MANAGER AND I WORKED OUT A POLICY TO MAKE SURE THE PAGES GET OUT EARLIER FROM THE DISPATCH IF WE ARE NOT ABLE TO DO IT FROM THE SCENE. HOPEFULLY WE GET IT QUICKER.

BRIEF COVID UPDATE. WE ASSIST THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH WITH THE VACCINES. MY OPINION AS THE COMMERCIAL VACCINATION SITE ARE BECOMING MORE AVAILABLE, THAT THE DOH RUN SITE MIGHT START TO DWIPD L.

WE HAVE A COMMITMENT FOR ANOTHER ANOTHER MONTH.

BUT AS WE SIGH PUBLIC WAL-MART AND THOSE OTHER BUSINESS START TO GET VACCINATION FROM THE MANUFACTURERS, THOSE PUBLIC SITE COULD DIMINISH JUST AS AN EXAMPLE.

I WANT ON PUBLIX WEB SITE TODAY TO PREPARE FOR THE MEETING AND IT TELLS YOU THEY ARE FULL ALREADY FOR THIS WEEK. IT DOES SAY TO CHECK BACK FRIDAY MORNING AT 7:00. LOCATION CLOSEST TO YOU TO SEE IF THEY VACCINATION AVAILABLE THERE.

WE ASSUME THAT WILL BE A PROBLEM FOR QUITE SOMETIME.

IT'S OBVIOUSLY STILL A MUCH-NEEDED BY A LOT OF PEOPLE. THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH WEB SITE THAT YOU ALL GO TO LOOK AT THE STATS FOR COVID. HAS A NEW LINK ON THIS.

THAT ALLOWS YOU TO LOOK FOR ANY PUBLIC AND OR PRIVATE LOCATION THAT HAVE VACCINATION AVAILABLE SHOWING THE RESIDENT AND YOU FOLK IF YOU CAN REFER THEM THERE.

GETTING A LITTLE BIT MORE EASIER.

THEY MAY BE BOOKED UP. IT'S EASIER TO FIND THEM AS OPPOSED TO EARLIEN WHEN YOU WERE FREE FOR ALL.

THEY ARE GETTING BETTER IN THAT FRONT.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE. ANYONE WITH QUESTIONS OR

COMMENTS? >> THANK YOU FOR THAT.

[12. Comments by the City Manager ]

>> COMMENTS BY THE CITY MANAGER.

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO GIVE THE WEB SITE FOR THOSE WHO ARE WATCHING FOR THE SURVEY. IT'S WWW.CITY OF PARKLAND.

[13. Comments by the City Attorney ]

COMMENT BUSINESS THE CITY ATTORNEY.

>> OKAY. I DON'T WANT TO DISAPPOINT YOU TONIGHT WITH NO COMMENTS. I WILL JUST GIVE YOU HEADS UP.

I KNOW THE STATE LOBBYIST WAS HERE AND RAN OVER A NUMBER OF BILLS THAT WERE BEING FILED IN LEGISLATURE TO GIVE YOU HEADS UP ADDITIONAL ONE THAT WAS FILED THAT YOU MAY HAVE INTEREST YOU MAY WANT TO FOCUS ON.

COUPLE OF YEARS AGO 2019 LEGISLATIVE SESSION.

BILL PASSED THAT CREATED A LOT OF ISSUE FOR THE CITY ABILITY TO ENSFOR LANDSCAPING REGULATION THAT SET UP PROPERTY OWNER IF THEY GO AND GET CERTIFIED ARBOUREST TO MAKE A STATEMENT THAT YOU KNOW CERTIFIED STATEMENT THAT'S A TREE MAY CAUSE A DANGER TO PERSON OR PROPERTY THAT PERSON COULD HAVE REMOVE THE TREE. THERE'S A LOT OF AMBIGUITY IN THE PROCESS. THEY CAN'T REQUIRE THEM TO REPLANT. IT'S CREATED CONFUSION AMONGST MUNICIPALITY OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST COUPLE OF YEAR.

WE'VE HAD ONE OR TWO CASES WHERE THIS WAS INVOLVED.

THERE WAS NOW SENATE BILL, SENATE BILL 596.

AND HOUSE BILL 6023 THAT PROPOSES TO REPEAL THAT LEGISLATION. AND IT'S SECTION 163.045, FLORIDA STATUTE. IT WOULD BASICALLY FULLY RESTORE THE ABILITY TO REGULATE MATTERS RELATING PRUNING AND TRIMMING AND REMOVAL OF TREE.

GIVEN THE SIGNIFICANCE OF LANDSCAPING IN CITY.

I THOUGHT IT WOULD APPROPRIATE.

I REITERATE THE SENTIMENTS OF THE COMMISSION TONIGHT.

>> GOOD JOB FOR MENTIONING THAT.

OKAY. MOTION TO ADJOURN?

>> MOTION TO ADJOURN.
