TEST. TEST.

TEST. TEST.

GOOD EVENING, EVERYBODY. I WOULD LIKE TO CALL THE CITY COMMISSION WORKSHOP MEETING WEDNESDAY MARCH 17TH, 2021 TO ORDER. PLEASE RISE FOR THE PLEDGE.

[4A. Discuss City Manager's Performance Review Process for Future Performance Reviews]

DISCUSSION? DISCUSSING DISCUSS CITY MANAGER PERFORMANCE REVIEW PROCESS FOR FUTURE PERFORMANCE

REVIEWS. >> GIVEN THAT WE WERE IN UNIQUE SITUATION LAST YEAR WITH COVID AND NOT HAVING OUR STRATEGIC PLAN LIKE WE NORMALLY DO, SOME GOALS AND OBJECTIVE WERE NOT ESTABLISHED IN OCTOBER.

JACKIE AND I SAT DOWN YESTERDAY AND WE WENT OVER THE PROCESS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A PROCESS THAT WOULD HELP GUIDE YOU ALL TO CREATING A PROCESS. SHE ACTUALLY CAME UP WITH AN IDEA OR SUGGESTION ON A TIMING THAT I DIDN'T EVEN CONSIDER.

I ASKED HER TO PULL TOGETHER QUICK PRESENTATION AND TO BRING SOME IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS FOR THE FUTURE.

WE'RE TRYING TO COME UP WITH WHAT THE WAY TO RATE YOUR CITY

MANAGER IN THE FUTURE. >> OKAY.

>> CAN WE E-MAIL THIS? PRESENTATION TO JORDAN?

>> SURE. >> OBVIOUSLY NOT AT THE MOMENT. BUT AFTERWARDS SO HE CAN LOOK

AT IT. >> HE CAN'T GO ONLINE RIGHT

NOW. >> WE'RE LIVE STREAM.

>> IF YOU WANT TO JUST RIGHT. IT WILL BE DELAYED.

IT'S UP TO YOU, JORDAN, IF YOU WANT TO LOOK AT THE PRESENTATION THAT JACKIE HAS. IF YOU WANT TO GO ON LIVE AND WATCH IT LIVE. JUST TRY TO MUTE, I GUESS.

THANK YOU. >> GOOD EVENING VICE-MAYOR, MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS. SO YOU KNOW THIS IS VERY BRIEF SMALL PRESENTATION SO I DON'T BELIEVE THAT COMMISSIONER ISROW WILL BE MISSING MUCH FROM SEEING IT VERSES HEARING IT. EXCEPT FOR THE TIME LINE.

PERFORMING THE EVALUATION OF THE CITY'S PERFORMANCE SOMETHING WE KNOW IS VERY IMPORTANT.

SOMETIMES IT'S NOT SUCH AN EASY TASK.

AS A MATTER OF FACT SOME COMMISSIONS HAVE A TROUBLE COMING UP WITH ONE METHOD OF DOING THAT.

THIS COMMISSION IS DIFFERENT. I KNOW YOU CAN COME TO CONSENSUS ON THAT. IT'S NOT AN EASY TASK.

THE REASON WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY GET PERFORMANCE EVALUATION TO LOOK WHERE SHE'S PERFORMED WELL.

REWARDING THAT PERFORMANCE, BUT I THINK,ALSO, THE BIG IMPORTANT THING IS THE RELATIONSHIP THAT THE CITY HAS WITH THE CITY MANAGER IN THE EVALUATION PROCESS.

THIS IS PRETTY IMPORTANT. AS YOU KNOW, THE CITY MANAGER'S CONTRACT SPECIFIES THAT PER PERFORMANCE EVALUATION WILL BE REVIEWING THE STRATEGIC PLAN.

AND WHETHER THE STRIKE PLAN GOES HAVE BEEN MET FOR THE YEAR. THAT'S WHERE WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A DILEMMA. I'VE DEVELOPED THIS TIME LINE HERE FOR YOU ALL TO TAKE A LOOK AT.

I'M GOING TO USE IT AS A GATE AS WE GO BACK AND FORTH IN CONVERSATIONS. THE FIRST THING TO LOOK AT WHERE WE ARE. USUALLY THE EVALUATION WOULD BE BASED ON THAT STRATEGIC PLAN GOALS.

THOSE STRATEGIC PLAN GOALS ARE MADE IN THE PREVIOUS YEAR.

>> I CAN SEE THE PRESENTATION ON THE SCREEN.

BUT IT'S NOT WIDE.

>> OKAY. NORMALLY, WE WOULD HAVE THE STRATEGIC PLAN THAT RUNS IN THE FISCAL YEAR PREVIOUS TO WHERE THE CITY MANAGER'S EVALUATION IS.

AND YOU KNOW THAT'S COMING UP. WE'RE DOING STRATEGIC PLANNING

[00:05:02]

NOW IN APRIL. AND THAT WILL BE FOR THE STRATEGIC PLAN THAT BEGINS OCTOBER 1ST.

AND GOES TO THE NEXT OCTOBER 1ST.

THE CITY MANAGER'S EVALUATION THAT THE DUE THIS OCTOBER, WOULD BE BASED ON THE STRATEGIC PLAN THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN OCTOBER 1ST OF '20 THROUGH '21.

WE SEE NO STRATEGIC PLAN. THE EVALUATION THAT CITY MANAGER HAS DUE THIS UPCOMING DECEMBER HAS NO STRIKE PLANS TO BASE IT FROM. THAT'S WHERE WE HAD THIS TIME LINE SO YOU CAN SEE THAT AN EVALUATION THAT'S DUE ON DECEMBER 21ST HAS NO STRATEGIC PLAN BECAUSE IT WAS DEFERRED DUE TO COVID-19 BACK IN APRIL 1ST OF 2020.

SO HOW DO WE FIX IT FOR THIS YEAR ONLY.

IT'S A ONE-YEAR FIX THAT I BELIEVE WE IMMEDIATE.

MOVING FORWARD THE CITY MANAGER WILL HAVE THAT STRATEGIC PLAN THAT WE'RE WORKING ON RIGHT NOW TO GUIDE YOU FOR HER EVALUATION FOR DECEMBER OF 2022.

RIGHT NOW IT'S JUST WHAT ARE WE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT FROM TODAY UNTIL DECEMBER 5TH OF 2021 WHEN HE EVALUATION IS DUE. THAT'S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS KIND OF FIGURE OUT HOW WE WILL SET FORTH THE GOALS TO BE EVALUATED JUST FOR THIS TIME PERIOD ONLY.

IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, IT KIND OF IT FORT ASTRO FORTUNATE IT'N DECEMBER OF ANY YEAR. YOU KNOW YOU WILL HAVE A

COMPLETE STRATEGIC PLAN -- >> HOLD ON A SECOND.

>> JORDAN GOT DROPPED THERE. >> WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS LOOK AT THIS CURRENT YEAR AND THE EVALUATION THAT'S DUE DECEMBER 5TH OF 2021. AND THEN MOVING FORWARD YOU WILL BE ABLE TO LOOK COMPLETE STRATEGIC PLAN WHETHER THOSE GOALS WERE MET OR NOT. BECAUSE IF THE STRATEGIC PLAN IS FROM OCTOBER TO OCTOBER, THE CITY MANAGER'S EVALUATION IS IN DECEMBER YOU KNOW YOU WILL HAVE THAT COMPLETE PICTURE TO LOOK AT. THERE'S SEVERAL OPTIONS THAT YOU KNOW COMMISSION CAN USE OR HOW TO CONDUCT AN EVALUATION.

FOR THIS ONE EVALUATION, YOU KNOW YOU COULD DO A WRITTEN FORM WITH RATINGS THAT'S SOMETHING LIKE THE ICMA FORM THAT YOU'VE SEEN BEFORE. YOU COULD DO WRITTEN FORM WITH LETTER GRADES INSTEAD OF RATING.

YOU COULD DO NARRATIVE WHICH IS REALLY JUST THE ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS. YOU CAN DO A VERBAL EVALUATION. THERE'S SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS YOU CAN DO THAT. I HAVE FEW WAYS THAT I CAN RECOMMEND. BUT THIS WOULD BE A GOOD OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU ALL TO HAVE THAT CONVERSATION AS TO WHAT YOU FEEL BEST WAY TO EVALUATE THE CITY MANAGER JUST FOR THIS ONE GRADING PERIOD. IF I CAN ASK A QUESTION FIRST.

THE EVALUATIONS WE JUST DID IS THAT FOR DECEMBER?

. >> THAT WAS FOR DECEMBER OF 2020. RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THE CITY MANAGER'S CONTRACT SAID THAT IN OCTOBER YOU MEET AND DISCUSS WHAT THOSE CRITERIA ARE AND THAT HASN'T BEEN DONE FOR THIS UPCOMING YEAR. THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE.

>> GOT IT. >> OKAY.

>> WITH REGARD TO OTHER CITIES, ARE WE THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS REVIEW THAT'S TIED SOLY TO STRATEGIC PLAN OR OTHER CITIES THAT FOLLOW THAT PROCESS? KNOW CITY MANAGER'S CONTRACT VARY.

A LOT OF TIME IT'S NOT THAT SPECIFIC.

IT MAY JUST BE THAT THEY MEET AND EVALUATE.

I DON'T KNOW THAT. I DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S OTHER ONES IN THIS AREA THAT SPECIFICALLY SPELL THAT OUT OR

WHICH ONES THEY ARE. >> I THINK ONE GOOD THING ABOUT IT BEING TIED TO STRATEGIC PLANNING IS THAT'S THE MAIN FOCUS OF THE CITY MANAGER IS IMPLEMENTING THE STRATEGIC PLAN. AND ENSURING WHATEVER WE DETERMINE YOU KNOW NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED AND OUR PRIORITIES AND WHAT HAVE YOU THAT IF THOSE GOALS ARE MET IT'S EASIER TO MEASURE THAT PARTICULAR -- THOSE PARTICULAR ITEMS. I THINK THAT'S A GOOD THING THAT WE DO. YOU KNOW --

[00:10:01]

>> I HAVE A QUESTION. GO AHEAD COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

ANTHONY, RELATIVE TO THIS, BECAUSE IF JACKIE IS INDICATING THAT THE SPECIFIC LANGUAGE FOR REVIEW IS TIED DIRECTLY TO STRATEGIC PLANNING, IS THE PERFORMANCE CRITERIA THAT WE ARE ABOUT TO DISCUSS REALLY IN EFFECT A RENEGOTIATION OF THE MANAGER'S CONTRACT TONIGHT? AND ARE WE GETTING INTO SOMETHING THAT YOU KNOW, ACTIVATES SOME OTHER ASPECTS OF LAW THAT WE NEED TO WORRY

ABOUT? >> SO THE CITY MANAGER'S CONTRACT DOES PROVIDE FOR THE CITY COMMISSION AND THE CITY MANAGER TO JOINTLY DEVELOP THE CRITERIA.

WHEN IT -- AND THE CRITERIA IS NOT EXPLICITLY STATED THAT IT NEEDS TO BE A WRITTEN PERFORMANCE REVIEW.

THAT'S WHY PROBABLY JACKIE IS GIVING YOU THE OPTIONS ON THE BOARD. HOWEVER, WHEN IT COMES TO THE INCREASE, THE WAY IT IS RIGHT NOW.

IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE ON WHETHER THE MANAGER HAS ACHIEVED THE PERFORMANCE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES THAT ARE ESTABLISHED THROUGH THAT PROCESS.

IF YOU WILL DEVIATE GREAT THAT.

I WOULD SAY THAT STARTS TO SOUND LIKE A CONTRACT AMENDMENT. BUT IF IT'S JUST A MERIT OF FORMULATING THE CRITERIA. I THINK THAT'S ALREADY CONTEMPLATED IN THE AGREEMENT. AND THEN THE ONLY ISSUE LEFT IS REALLY THE DATES. BECAUSE OF THE ISSUES THAT WE'RE JUST EXPLAINED TO YOU. BECAUSE IT DOES STATE THAT NORMALLY BY DECEMBER, THAT THIS IS SUPPOSED TO CURVE BEFORE DECEMBER ACTUALLY. THAT YOU WILL HAVE HER REVIEW.

AND THEN IT'S CONTEMPLATED SHE WOULD GET AN INCREASE IF YOU -- IF YOU THOUGHT THAT WAS APPROPRIATE.

THAT'S ALL SPELLED OUT IN THE AGREEMENT.

THE ONLY THINK IN WRITING THE OBJECTIVE AND THE STRATEGIC PLAN. THAT'S SPELLED OUT IN THE AGREEMENT. IT NEEDS TO BE CLEAR TO HER

SHE KNOWS WHAT OBJECTIVES. >> DOES THAT ANSWER YOUR

QUESTION? >> IT DOES.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE IN A DIALOGUE TOGETHER.

YOU KNOW, I DON'T WANT -- IT SOUNDS AS JACKIE'S PRESENTING IT IT'S THE COMMISSION MAKING DECISIONS ON THIS.

AS I READ THE CONTRACT BETWEEN US AND NANCY, IT'S A DISCUSSION THAT WE BOTH NEED TO HAVE AND SO I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO INVITE HER TO THE TABLE ON THE OBJECTIVES AND HOW WE WILL APPROACH THIS CRITERIA.

OTHERWISE WE GET INTO A MODIFICATION OF THE CONTRACT.

I DON'T KNOW THAT'S WHAT WE ARE REALLY CONTEMPLAING.

I READ IT AS YOU DO. IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE IN CONSULTATION WITH THE CITY MANAGER AND SHE'S SUPPOSED TO

BE INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS. >> I DIDN'T WANT TO MAKE IT SOUND LIKE IT IS SOLELY YOURS IF.

THAT'S WHY WE DO IT IN THIS SETTING SO WE CAN HAVE THE OPEN DIALOGUE. VICE-MAYOR?

>> I'M COMFORTABLE WITH WHAT'S HERE.

I'VE HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH NANCY TO DO A VERBAL CONVERSATION. LOOK AT -- BECAUSE SHE PROVIDES US QUARTERLY REPORTS. TO ME THAT'S SOME FORM OF METRIC. AGAIN, BUT YOU KNOW COLLECTIVELY IS THAT WAY WE MIGHT LOOK TO JUDGE.

OR EVALUATE MOVING FORWARD. I GO BACK TO NANCY AT LEAST IN THIS INTERIM. ARE YOU COMFORTABLE NOT TO SAY THAT'S THE END-ALL. AT LEAST FOR US TO USE TO MAKE COMMENTS AND RECOMMENDATION OFF OF THAT.

>> >> DOING A VERBAL REVIEW.

>> JUST VERBAL IS MY OPINION. >> IT COULD BE --

>> I'M FINE WITH A VERBAL. MY GOAL WAS TO HEAR FROM YOU AND ALWAYS TO CONTINUE TO DO A BETTER JOB.

I LOVE TALKING. I LOVE WORKING THROUGH THINGS.

AND FIGURING THINGS OUT. IF WE WOULD LIKE TO SIT DOWN ON A ONE ON ONE WITH YOU. AND IT'S DONE VERBALLY.

THAT WOULD WORK FOR ME. BUT THE BIG QUESTION RIGHT NOW IS THAT WE'RE IN THIS ANOTHER YEAR DELAY.

THE INFORMATION FROM THE STRATEGIC PLAN BECAUSE YOUR PS CYCLE IS COMPLETE.

>> BECAUSE YOUR PLAN WILL GO FORMALLY GO INTO EFFECT IN OCTOBER. I THINK THERE'S SOME INITIATIVES THAT WE COULD TARGET RIGHT AWAY.

>> THEY ARE. BUT THAT'S NOT HOW ITS DEFINED

IT THE CONTRACT, THOUGH. >> AGAIN, I THINK THE EVALUATION PROCESS IS SOMETHING WE'LL ALL LOOK AT A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY. YOU KNOW, I MIGHT PUT A

[00:15:02]

DIFFERENT EMPHASIS IN THIS PART OF THE STRATEGIC PLAN.

SOMEONE MAY APPRECIATE MORE HOW YOU PREPARE FOR A STRATEGIC PLAN. SOMEONE MAY APPRECIATE MORE HOW YOU IMPLEMENTED A PARTICULAR PROJECT.

YOU KNOW MAYBE IT WASN'T, YOU KNOW MAYBE A PROJECT THAT'S DIFFICULT TO FINISH AND YOU WERE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THAT PROJECT UNDER DIFFICULTY WHERE MAYBE ANOTHER PROJECT DIDN'T GET DONE QUITE ON TIME. BUT BECAUSE YOU EXCELLED IN THIS ONE. EVERYONE MIGHT -- I THINK IT'S OKAY WE EVALUATE AND SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY.

THAT'S ACTUALLY IN REALITY THAT'S A GOOD THING.

I DON'T THINK WE HAVE TO SAY WE WILL HAVE FIVE POINTS FOR PREPARATION. YOU KNOW SIX POINTS FOR IMPLEMENTATION. I WILL VIEW IT MY WAY.

VICE-MAYOR WILL VIEW IT HIS WAY.

ISROW. COMMISSIONER CUTLER SAME THING. THEY MAY ALL SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY. IN THE END GET TO THE SAME PLACE. I THINK THAT'S AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED THAT'S KIND OF REALLY THE ONLY WAY --

>> THAT LEAVES ME TO OTHER CONCERN.

I DON'T -- THE ONE ON ONE MAY BE HELPFUL AND I'M NOT SAYING THEY ARE NEW CHILLILY EXCLUSIVE.

I THINK DOING A COLLECTIVE REVIEW WITH THE COMMISSION AND NANCY WOULD BE BENEFICIAL. I SHARE WITH NANCY MY THOUGHTS ON THE FORM. WHILE THE FORM AND I KNOW IT'S SORT OF INDUSTRY STANDARD FORM.

IT ONLY ALLOWS FOR SO MUCH INFORMATION TO BE CONVEYED.

I THINK HAVING IT ASIDE FROM ONE ON ONE HAVING COLLECTIVE MEETING OR WORKSHOP WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT TO DISCUSS THE ISSUES TO YOUR POINT MAYOR, EACH OF US ARE GOING TO HAVE CERTAIN THINGS WE SEE IN A DIFFERENT WAY OR CERTAIN IS ISSUES THAT WE SEE AS BEING MORE IMPORTANTLY. HAVING THAT DIALOGUE COLLECTIVELY WOULD BE BENEFICIAL ASIDE FROM THE ONE ON ONE. MAYBE IT DOESN'T ELIMINATE THEM. I THINK HAVING A GROUP

DISCUSSION WOULD BE HELPFUL. >> THAT'S SOMETHING I TOTALLY GET WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM. THAT'S NOT NECESSARILY A BAD IDEA. I THINK THAT PUTS NANCY FOR SURE POTENTIALLY IN A PRECARIOUS SITUATION AS FAR AS US HAVING OPEN DIALOGUE IN PUBLIC WHERE MAYBE I'M IRRITATED ABOUT A PARTICULAR ITEM THAT I WANTED TO DISCUSS WITH HER IN HER OFFICE AND NOT NECESSARILY BRING OUT IN PUBLIC BECAUSE WHILE NANCY IS DOING A GREAT JOB.

THAT MIGHT NOT ALWAYS BE THE CASE AND THAT COULD POTENTIALLY PUT ME OR YOU OR SOMEONE IN AN UNCOMFORTABLE SITUATION ALONG WITH NANCY. I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING WE WANT TO TRY TO AVOID. THERE'S SOME MERIT TO THAT FOR

SURE. >> I THINK THAT'S THE BENEFIT OF THE FORMS. IS THAT OTHERS CAN SEE THE FORMS. TO MY POINT THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH INFORMATION THAT COULD BE CONVEYED IN THE FORMS. MAYBE THERE'S A DIFFICULT VEHICLE TO BE THERE.

ONE THOUGHT IN TALKING TO JACKIE.

WE CAN GO ON THE STRATEGIC PLANNING PROCESS.

AND COMMUNICATION AND REPORTING INFORMATION AND MY LEADERSHIP MANAGEMENT AND COMMUNITY AND CITIZENS RELATIONS. I FELT ALONG WITH JACKIE THAT THESE WERE VERY GOOD BROAD TOPICS THAT WOULD COVER THE OPERATION AND THE FUNCTION OF THE CITY MANAGER.

AND THIS IS WHAT WE CAN TALK ABOUT AND TAKE AWAY.

BUT IF THIS SOMETHING. >> I THINK YOUR FORM GAVE US MOST OF THOSE. I THINK IT HIT ON THAT.

I KNOW SOME OF THEM WERE YES OR NOS.

AND JUST PUT A GRADE I THINK TO COMMISSIONER BRIGHTER'S POINT IF WE JUST HAD FOR HIM ANYWAY, I GUESS YOU KNOW IT GOES BACK TO EVERYBODY STYLE IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.

TO HAVE MORE OPPORTUNITY TO EITHER GET INTO YOU KNOW DESCRIBE IT MORE AND MORE LIKE A NARRATIVE, WHICH YOU TALKED ABOUT. YOU KNOW MAYBE AT THE END OF EACH TOPIC, WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN YOU KNOW, WRITE SOMETHING ON THERE.

YOU KNOW, SO WE CAN EXPLAIN OURSELVES.

>> THIS IS ACTUALLY IS. IF YOU COULD WRITE A SENTENCE OR TWO ON EACH ONE AND THEN EITHER TALK TO ME, OR IF YOU ALL AGREE TO A WORKSHOP ON IT. I WILL BE HONEST.

[00:20:07]

IT'S UNCOMFORTABLE TO TALK ONE'S PERFORMANCE NOT JUST NEGATIVE BUT POSITIVE. I GET EMBARRASSED WITH KIND WORDS. IT'S UNCOMFORTABLE FOR ME.

I UNDERSTAND MY ROLE AND MY POSITION AND IT'S A PUBLIC REQUIREMENT THEN IF THAT'S THE DESIRE OF THE COMMISSION I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM WITH IT.

IF I HAD A PREFERENCE I WOULD RATHER MEET ONE ON ONE THEN SOMETHING FORMALLY DOCUMENTED IN WRITING.

>> VICE-MAYOR? >> WHICH I HAVE HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH NANCY ABOUT.

I PERFORM TO DO IT VERBALLY. THIS IS TWO-WAY TOPIC.

IF I WRITE NARRATIVE AND GO BLAH, BLAH.

SHE MAY READ IT AND INTERPRET IT DIFFERENTLY THAN HAVING TWO-WAY CONVERSATION. THE OTHER PART IS TYING INTO THIS MAY KIND OF HELP THERE'S STILL A STRIKE PLAN OUT THERE.

NOT THAT WE'VE ELIMINATED IT. IT'S TWO YEARS AGO.

WHEN YOU -- FOR EXAMPLE, THIS COMING AGENDA.

YOU HAVE STRIKE PLANS, STRATEGIES, IF ARE -- LIKE PROJECTS OR THINGS TIED INTO THINGS YOU ARE DOING THAT WOULD BE EFFECTIVE GOVERNMENT. WE CAN HAVE A CONVERSATION AND AT LEAST FROM MY OWN OPINION, I CAN PROVIDE AN EVALUATION ON HAVE YOU MET THAT GOAL. COULD BE YES.

IT COULD BE YES OR NO. IT COULD BE EXPANDED.

I THINK LOOKING AT THOSE GOALS MIGHT ALIGN TO HELPING GUIDE AND AGAIN THIS THE COLLABORATIVE PROCESS.

THAT MAY BE SOMETHING. AGAIN, BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP WITH COMMISSION. IS THAT EFFECTIVE GOVERNMENT.

IF IT THEN WE CAN TALK ABOUT THAT.

IF IT'S NOT PART OF THE STRATEGY THAT'S IMPLEMENTED.

IT WOULDN'T BE PART.

THAT ALLOWS THE CONVERSATION.

>> COMMISSIONER BRIER, GO AHEAD.

>> MY OTHER POINT IS THIS. I APPRECIATE THE NARRATIVE CATEGORIES. I ALONG MUCH LIKE THE VICE-MAYOR PREFER DIALOGUE IS MORE BENEFICIAL.

I UNDERSTAND JACKIE YOU MAY HAVE CERTAIN CRITERIA YOU NEED TO MEMORIALIZE IN SOME FORM AND FASHION AFTER THE PROCESS FORMAL REVIEW.OTE, UNQUOTE - I THINK THAT THE GIVE AND TAKE DIALOGUE IS HELPFUL. IT COULD BE ONE ON ONE SETTING FINE. IS THERE AND PARDON MY IGNORANCE ON THE SUBJECT. IS THERE A PROCESS BY BY THE CITY MANAGER PRESENTS ON THE ACHIEVEMENTS MADE THAT GIVEN YEAR ON THE STRATEGIC PLAN. I KNOW WE DON'T HAVE ONE FOR LAST YEAR. TO BOB'S POINT OR THE VICE PAYOR'S POINT. THERE'S ONE FOR THE PRIOR YEAR IN EFFECT. I HAVEN'T SEEN ANY SORT OF PRESENTATION ON WHAT WE HAVE ACHIEVED OUT OF THAT STRATEGIC PLAN, WHAT REMAINS TO BE ACHIEVED.

THOSE TYPES OF THINGS. >> YES, WE DO.

AND WE DID PRESENT. WE PRESENT EVERY QUARTER.

IT'S THE ENVISIO REPORT FOR STRATEGIC PLANNING.

>> YEAH. AND I USUALLY HAVE SUANDA DO THE PRESENTATION AND SOME DEPARTMENT TALK ABOUT THE ITEMS. IT'S AN OVERALL REPORT THAT PROGRAM HAS DONE A WONDERFUL JOB DOCUMENTING.

WE TRACK AND SHOW WHAT WE'VE COMPLETED.

WHAT WE HAVEN'T COMPLETED. WHAT IS DELAYED AND WHAT IS HAPPENING. I THINK THAT WOULD BE A GREAT RESOURCE TO USE IN OUR DISCUSSION AS A GUIDE.

>> WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HOW WE RESOLVE.

[00:25:05]

THE DECEMBER PERIOD FOR THE NEXT YEAR WOULD WE STILL BE WORKING FROM THAT PRIOR STRATEGIC PLAN?

OR COMBINE THE TWO? >> COMBINED.

WE WOULD UPDATE IT. A LOT OF STRATEGIC ITEMS ARE MULTIYEAR. WE'RE GOING TO UPDATE WITH THE NEW PLAN. AND THE CONTINUATION OF THE ITEMS. WOW WON'T SEE THAT AS SEPARATE. SOME ITEMS.ULD BE PULL OUT - OR MAYBE WE CAN JUST DECIDE AS THE GROUP JUST TO RATE ME WHERE WE ARE CURRENT YEAR TO DATE AT THAT MOMENT.

IT WOULD BE FINE WITH THAT. LIKE YOU SAID, COMMISSIONER, WE DO START THINGS RIGHT AWAY. WE TECHNICALLY DON'T JUST WAIT UNTIL OCTOBER 1ST TO START OUR ACTION ITEMS. I'M WORKING ON THREE OF THEM RIGHT NOW.

IT WOULD BE OKAY TO HAVE THAT AS PART OF THE CONSIDERATION.

9BUT I'M NOT COMFORTABLE WITH COMPLETE CONSIDERATION.

BECAUSE IT'S NOT THERE YET. >> OKAY.

COMMISSIONER ISROW. YOU WANT TO -- SORRY, DID I

SOMEHOW DISCONNECTED YOU? >> ON ONE. THEY ESTABLISH THEIR DYNAMIC AND RELATIONSHIP WITH NANCY. WE ALL HAVE OUR OWN UNIQUE STYLES. SHE'S GOOD AT ADAPTING TO STYLE. ONE PERSON MAY SEE A STRENGTH.

THAT'S THE INDIVIDUAL ASPECT OF IT IS IMPORTANT.

>> COMMISSIONER CUTLER. >> THANK YOU.

I READ THROUGH SEVERAL DIFFERENT ARTICLES AND OTHER CRITERIA FOR ASSESSING MANAGEMENT.

ONE OF THE KEY COMPONENTS TO IT IS THE DETERMINATION BY THE BOARD OF WHAT OUR EXPECTATIONS ARE.

IT SEEMS TO ME LIKE THE DILEMMA WE'RE IN RIGHT NOW IS REALLY JUST A PARTY OF DETERMINING WHAT THE EXPECTATIONS ARE IN THAT INTERIM PERIOD OF TIME.

IF WE CAN COLLECTIVELY FIGURE OUT WHAT THOSE EXPECTATIONS ARE OF THIS COMMISSION RELATIVE TO YOUR JOB DURING THAT INTERIM PERIOD OF TIME. THEN WE'LL HAVE SOMETHING TO ESTABLISH WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE MELT THE -- MET THE GOALS. .

>> ABSOLUTELY. TODAY, NOW IF YOU COULD COME TO AN AGREEMENT ON THAT, THAT WOULD MAKE IT FAIRLY SIMPLE.

THAT IS DEFINITELY THE BEST WAY TO GO.

>> RIGHT. >> IT COULD BE THAT PART OF THAT EVALUATION IS TO TAKE SOME OF THE STRATEGIC STUFF THAT'S GONE BEFORE AND SOME OF WHAT WE WILL BE DOING IN APRIL AND USE THAT AS PART OF A DETERMINATION OF WHAT THOSE EXPECTATIONS ARE. THERE COULD BE OTHER EXPECTATION WE WOULD HAVE IN THE INTERIM PERIOD OF TIME.

FOR EXAMPLE, WE'RE STILL IN EMERGENCY SITUATION HERE.

AND THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THINGS THAT GOING ON RELATIVE TO THAT. WE WILL BE HOPEFULLY COMING OUT OF THAT AND IS THERE -- IS THERE AN EXPECTATION OR A SERIES OF EXPECTATIONS THAT WE HAVE OF MANAGEMENT RELATIVE TO THAT? AND RELATIVE TO KICK STARTING THE CITY AND GETTING BACK TO WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN SORT OF THE NORMAL ASPECT OF THINGS YOU KNOW BEFORE COVID OR AFTER COVID OR THOSE KIND OF THINGS. THERE'S A WHOLE LITANY OF THINGS THAT WE CAN UTILIZE FOR DETERMINING EXPECTATIONS.

I THINK THAT'S A GOOD STARTING POINT FOR US TO REALLY PUT US IN POSTURE OF MAKING THAT AND CREATED WITHIN THAT PERIOD OF

TIME. >> I THINK WE'RE ALL WHICH COMMISSIONER ISROW POINTED OUT.

I THINK WE'RE ALL SAYING THE SAME THING BUT FOR US TO DEFINITIVELY SAY IT'S THIS, THIS AND THIS.

IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE. I MAY CARE ABOUT THE DAY-TO-DAY ACTION. I MAY CARE MORE ABOUT PREPARATION AND COMMUNICATION. VICE-MAYOR MAY CARE ABOUT COMPLETION OF PARTICULAR ITEMS. COMMISSIONER BRIER MAY CARE ABOUT SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

THE EVALUATION HAVING THESE TOPICS TO DISCUSS AND TO OUTLINE, I THINK IS PERFECT. BUT HOW WE'RE GOING TO EACH SEE THEM COULD BE TOTALLY DIFFERENT.

ALL FIVE OF US COULD SEE THEM VERY DIFFERENT.

I THINK HAVING THE TOPICS TO SEE.

HOW EACH OF US VALUE AND RATE THE TOPICS WOULD BE UP TO US.

[00:30:03]

>> I ALSO VIEW THE FORMS AS BEING JUST CLINICAL.

WHEN I DID MINE. I FILLED IT OUT.

WE HAD A ONE ON ONE. I WENT THROUGH EACH QUESTION, EACH ITEM AND SAID YOU KNOW THIS IS WHY PUT THIS.

AND THIS IS WHAT I THINK ON THIS.

YOU DO GREAT HERE. THIS WOULD BE BETTER.

WE HAD THE ONE ON ONE. AND STILL FILLED OUT THE FORM.

I THINK IT'S STYLE. HOWEVER YOU WANT EL HOWEVER YOU WANT TO COMMUNICATE. SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE WORKS TO WORK ON AND TAKE A BOW. YEAH, I DID A GREAT JOB.

THAT'S THE IMPORTANT THING FOR HER AND US TO DEVELOP AND

BUILD THAT RELATIONSHIP. >> MAKE A RECOMMENDATION.

I THINK IT'S HELPFUL. NANCY YOU TELL US IF WE DISAGREE. TO HAVE A MIDYEAR CHECKPOINT WHERE WE SIT DOWN AND GIVE SOME SORT OF PROGRESS REPORT.

BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW TO MAKE AN ENTIRE YEAR FOR FIND OUT IF THERE'S SOMETHING WE DONE RIGHT OR SOMETHING SHE COULD

HAVE DONE BETTER. >> THAT'S GREAT.

THAT'S WHAT OUR ONE ON ONES ARE.

WHEN I USE THOSE ONE ON ONES, WE HAVE THOSE CONVERSATIONS.

YOU KNOW, AND SAY, HEY, WE NEED TO WORK ON THIS.

OR THIS IS GOOD. YOU KNOW, I THINK WE'RE HEAD IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION IN THIS PARTICULAR AREA.

WOULDN'T BE BAD TO HAVE A CHECKPOINT.

THAT'S JUST HOW WE WANT TO COMMUNE KAIKS EACH OTHER.

>> THIS MARE MAROM >> WELL OUT CHANGING THE CONTRACT. THE CONTRACT DOESN'T TALK ABOUT MID-YEAR EVALUATION. I THINK NANCY HAS BEEN OPEN, HER DOOR IS OPEN. IF ANYONE WANT TO COME AND SAY NANCY, UP NEED TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT A SPECIFIC ITEM THAT THINK IS GOING GREAT OR STRUGGLING WITH OR WHATEVER MAY BE. SHE'S BEEN OPEN TO SAY COME ON IN. THE DOOR IS OPEN LET'S MAKE AN APPOINTMENT AND HAVE A CONVERSATION DOWN.

I GO BACK TO THE RECOMMENDATION TO BE ARE MATTER SAY MANTICES. I THINK ATASHING IT TO THE STRIKE PLAN LIKE I SAID. IF WE HAVE AS GOAL OR STRATEGY, WHAT ARE THOSE THINGS TIED TO.

WHAT ARE THE PROJECTS IT'S TIED TO? IN THE EVALUATION PROCESS, LIKE FOR EXAMPLE, LET'S SAY IT'S BUILDING MORE BASEBALL FIELDS.

YOU MAY BE PASSIONATE ABOUT IT.

I MAY SIT THERE AND GO NEXT WEEK THE WEEK AFTER.

IT'S GOING TO GET DONE. THERE MAY BE ISSUE WE EACH HAVE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE ON BUT AGAIN THAT'S WHERE NANCY WHICH IS DIFFICULT POSITION. SHE HAS FIVE BOSSES IN GENERAL. AND THAT'S A HARD PART WHERE SHE'S LOOKING AT I THOUGHT WE TALKED ABOUT A BUDGET YEAR.

AND I THOUGHT WE TALKED ABOUT THIS.

AND THIS WAS THE CONSENSUS. NOW I GET PUSH BACK ABOUT MEETING A GOAL AND OBJECTIVE THAT I THOUGHT WE TALKED ABOUT BECAUSE AGAIN SOMETIMES GOALS AND OBJECTIVE ARE OUT OF YOUR GROEM THAT'S NOT YOUR I DON'T WANT TO SAY YOUR FAULT.

THAT'S THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT WE'RE IN.

HOW WILL YOU COMMUNICATE. WHAT'S THE LEADERSHIP.

WHAT'S THE FISCAL MANAGEMENT? DID WE PUT ASIDE MONEY EVEN THOUGH IT'S DELAYED. EACH OF OUR EVALUATIONS ARE

SUBJECTIVE. >> CAN WE AGREE THE RECOMMENDATION, THE HEADERS, SO TO SPEAK THAT SHE HAS DO THEY SEEM TO ENCOMPASS ANYTHING WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ANSWERED? AND WHETHER WE WANT TO DO WRITTEN EVALUATION OR NARRATIVE EVALUATION.

DOES IT MATTER TO ANYONE IN PARTICULAR IF BOB PREFERS TO DO IT VERBALLY; DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM COMMISSIONER BRIER OR COMMISSIONER ISROW. OR COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

DOES IT MATTER TO YOU THAT HE DOESN'T WRITE IT DOWN?

>> NO. TO COMMISSION ISROW BOINT THERE'S A PROVISION THAT SAID AFTER THE FIRST YEAR THE REVIEWS ARE DONE AT LEAST ANNUALLY.

THERE'S NOTHING TO PRECLUDE US FROM THE DOING A MIDYEAR.

I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE WITH YOU.

NANCY'S DOOR IS ALWAYS OPEN. WE'RE ALL MISSION DRIVEN.

I I DO THINK IT'S BENEFICIAL TO HAVE EVEN IF IT'S SOME SOME SORT OF SET TIME FRAME TO DO A MIDYEAR DISCUSSION.

[00:35:02]

YOU CAN CALL IT REVIEW OR SOMETHING ELSE.

I THINK IF EVERYBODY IS FOCUSED ON ONE THING.

TO COMMISSIONER ISROW'S POINT IT'S UNFAIR TO WAIT A YEAR TO DO THE FORMAL REVIEW. THAT WOULD BE BENEFICIAL TO EVEN. YOU WOULD KEEP THE DYING LOG OPEN. YOU COULD DO IT INDEPENDENTLY ON THE WEEKLY BASIS. YOU HAVE IT MORE STRUCTURED WHERE IT'S -- EVERYONE'S FOCUS ON THAT.

>> WOULD YOU HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THAT BEING SAID.

WOULD YOU HAVE AN ISSUE WITH SETTING YOU KNOW IN ADDITION TO OUR AGENDA BRIEFINGS, SET A MIDYEAR -- WHETHER YOU WANT TO DO IT OR NOT HOWEVER -- IF YOU COULD MAKE A POINT TO MAKE SURE YOU SEND OUT YOU KNOW MEETING REQUEST, THAT WE HAVE THAT MID-YEAR OPPORTUNITY TO SIT DOWN WITH YOU AND DISCUSS.

>> WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT.

BRIEFING OR WHATEVER. THAT'S GOOD.

>> WE'RE GUT WITH THE TOPICS. WE WILL SET UP MIDYEAR EVALUATION. OR CHAT WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT. AND THEN NOW WE WILL DO THIS NEXT ONE. IN OCTOBER -- OR DECEMBER.

>> CITY MANAGER EVALUATION IS DUE DECEMBER 5TH.

>> THAT'S WHEN THAT WOULD BE DONE.

MID TIME BETWEEN NOW AND THEN. YOU COULD HAVE THE MIDYEAR AND THEN THAT ACTUAL WOULD BE DECEMBER.

THEN YOU HAVE A STRATEGIC PLAN TO WORK FROM TO LOOK FOR THE

NEXT ONE. >> CORRECT.

>> IS EVERYBODY -- ANYBODY HAVE -- ANYTHING ELSE?

NOBODY. >> OKAY.

YOU'RE GOOD COMMISSIONER ISROW.

[4B. Solid Waste and Recycling Work Group Update]

>> GOOD. >> DISCUSSION ITEM B; SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLING WORK GROUP UPDATE.

THIS WOULD BE LED BY VICE-MAYOR MASON.

>> HOWEVER YOU WANT TO DO IT. THIS IS YOUR SHOW.

YOU HAVE 23 MINUTES ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD, PLEASE.

>> OKAY. >> ALL RIGHT, HERE WE GO.

BOB MAYERSOHN. I WANT TO THANK BELL EVANS.

HE TOOK OVER BEFORE CAROL LEFT.

HE STEPPED IN TAKING HIM A WHILE TO GET UP TO SPEED.

I THINK IT'S ALMOST THERE. MY GOAL TODAY IS TO SEE THAT WE'RE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE THAT IF YOU GUYS HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS ABOUT WHY THE RECOMMENDATIONS TO GO WITH AN INDEPENDENT DISTRICT, I CAN ANSWER THAT FOR YOU OR AT LEAST TRY TO ANSWER THAT FOR YOU.

I WANTED TO GIVE YOU BACKGROUND ABOUT SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLING. THIS HAS BEEN DURING THE 80S, THE GOVERNMENT OBVIOUSLY SAID, YOU KNOW WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT ABOUT SOLID WASTE. THE LANDFALL WILL BE FILLED UP. WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO -- PARTICULARLY BROWARD COUNTY HAD ITS OWN CHALLENGES.

THAT'S THE EMPHASIS MIND IT. THERE'S THE STATUE YOU CAN LOOK AT. THE COUNTY DEALING WITH SOLID WASTE AS WELL AS FLORIDA STATUTE REGARDING RECYCLING AND THIS BIG ISSUE GETTING TO THAT 75% GOAL.

PARKLAND WAS NOT INITIALLY PARLIAMENT OF THIS.

THE SOLID WASTE DISTRICT. THEY WERE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH AN INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT. THERE WAS 26 CITIES INVOLVED IN THE FIVE CITIES THAT WERE NOT INVOLVED.

[00:40:02]

AGAIN AN INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT. AND A LOT OF IT WILL CREATE THE INITIAL BOND FOR 533 MILLION DOLLARS.

ONLY UNTIL THE BONDS PAID OFF. THIS THE SOME OF THE ASSETS.

THIS TIME LINE GIVE YOU FROM 2013 WHEN THE AGREEMENTS ENDED HOW THE COUNTY AND HOW CITIES WENT ABOUT LOOKING AT RECYCLING, DEALING WITH SOME OF THE WASTE, I'M NOT GOING LIKE I SAID YOU HAVE A COPY OF THIS YOU CAN BRING HOME.

THIS GIVES YOU AN IDEA ABOUT VALID WASTE.

IF YOU LOOK AT RECYCLING NUMBERS.

THIS BROWARD COUNTY IN THE WHOLE.

TO WHERE IT IS IN 2019 QUITE A DROP OFF.

THIS IDENTIFIES OPPORTUNITIES. SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLING ISSUES. THESE ARE SOME OF THE ISSUES THAT WERE TAKEN TO HEART. THEY DID A STUDY IN 2017.

THEY WERE CONTRACTED OUT AND THIS KIND OF GIVES YOU WHERE THEIR GOALS WERE AND OBJECTIVES.

ONE OF THE THINGS THEY DID RECOMMEND WAS TO HAVE A INDEPENDENT DISTRICT TO HANDLE THE CHALLENGES OF WASTE AND RECYCLING. THIS THE SOMETHING THAT GIVES YOU SOME OF THE OPTIONS ABOUT HOW TO MEET THAT 75% GOAL.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE FUTURE NEED AND PLANNING CONSIDERATION. THESE ARE SOME OF THE FACILITIES. YOU GOT WASTED ENERGY.

LANDFILLS. TRANSPORTATION, HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE. THEY WENT WITH CON CON SORT YUM. DISTRICT PROGRAMS. FUTURE DISTRICT PROGRAMS. FINANCE FOR FLOW CONTROL.

AGAIN JUST GOING THROUGH THE VERY QUICKLY.

SOME OF THE CHALLENGES, YOU GUYS CAN SEE AS WE GO THROUGH WITH GETTING TO WHERE WE ARE TODAY.

BUILDING AND FLEXIBILITY FOR TECHNOLOGIES.

THERE ARE CONTRACTS AGAIN. THIS IS ALSO WHERE SOME OF THE CONCERN HAS BEEN IS THAT COUNTY ALONG WITH THE OTHER ENTITIES HAVE RENEWALS IN THE PERIOD.

THE FIRST RENEWAL PERIOD IS UP IN 2023.

ONE OF THE CONCERNS WAS HOW QUICKLY CAN WE PUT THIS INDEPENDENT DISTRICT TOGETHER, WHICH YOU HAVE TO GO UP TO TALLAHASSEE TO GET IT DONE. YOU KNOW THE CONVERSATION WAS WELL, MAYBE WE SHOULD GO IN ANOTHER DIRECTION AND THE RESPONSE WAS WELL. WE CAN ALWAYS NEGOTIATE OR THOSE CITIES CAN NEGOTIATE WITH THEIR CONTRACT TO SEE IF THEY CAN HAVE SHORTER TERM OR MAYBE AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME. THE COST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA.

THESE ARE THE PROJECTED COST AND SCENARIOS.

INVESTMENT. THIS WAS, AGAIN, JUST TO GIVE YOU SOME INFORMATION PALM BEACH COUNTY HAS A VERY SIMILAR RECYCLING PROGRAM. I THINK THEY CHARGE 174 A HOUSEHOLD. THESE ARE SOME OF THE PROJECTIONS THAT BROWARD COUNTY.

THIS IS NOT TO ALL THE TRASH. THIS JUST THE FLOW CONTROL OF IT. WE STILL HAVE WASTE MANAGEMENT HALL THE TRASH THROUGH. WE HAD DISCUSSION NUMEROUS DISCUSSIONS ACT BENEFITS AND DRAW BACKS OF GOVERNMENT STRUCTURE. THIS IS KIND OF WHAT I WANT TO BRING TO YOU TODAY. THERE'S AN INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT. WHO WILL BE THE GOVERNING ENTITY. WHAT YOU HAVE AS FAR AS LIABILITIES AND OBLIGATIONS. WHAT YOU CAN CHARGE AS FAR AS REVENUE STREAMS AND TAXES. AND MILLAGE RATE.

THIS THE DRAW BACK. I WILL NOT READ THIS TO YOU UNTIL YOU HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING.

THE SPECIAL DISTRICT ONE OF THE ISSUES IS THAT THERE PALM BEACH HAD INDEPENDENT DISTRICT CREATED BY THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE AND THEN THEY AMENDED IT TO HAVE IT MEET THE GOVERNING BOARD. ONE OF THE THINGS IS THAT YOUR -- ANYTHING IF YOU USE MILLAGE RATE THE COUNTY CASTED TEN MILL. IF THERE'S ADDITIONAL MONEY THAT NEEDED TO BE OUT THE COUNTY COULD.

THIS GETS BACK INTO MORE CONSIDERATION FOR SPECIAL DISTRICT. HERE ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS AND DRAWBACKS. AND THEN FINALLY WE GET TO THE

[00:45:04]

INDEPENDENT DISTRICT WHERE AGAIN IT'S NOT CONTROLLED BY COUNTY OR CITY. SIMILAR TO I GUESS YOU KNOW NSID. THERE WOULD BE MORE.

THE BOARD WOULD BE ESTABLISHED AS OUR WORK GROUP CURRENTLY IS WHERE THERE'S A REPRESENTATIVE IN SMALL CITIES.

I THINK THERE'S THREE REPRESENTATIVE FROM THE MEDIUM CITIES AND LARGER CITY 101 FOR THE COUNTY.

EVERYBODY HAS A VOICE. THERE ARE A LOT OF OPTION FROM THE STANDPOINT FINANCING AND DIFFERENT THINGS THAT AN INDEPENDENT DISTRICT CAN DO. THIS GIVES YOU SOME OF THE DRAWBACKS AND BENEFITS TO THAT.

THIS THE REALLY I GUESS THE KIND OF SPELLING IT OUT.

HOW YOU COMPARE EACH ONE. YOU LOOK AT LOCAL CONTROL.

AN INDEPENDENT DISTRICT OBVIOUSLY SET UP BY THE STATE LEGISLATURE. BUT, AGAIN, IN ESSENCE YOU GO UP TO THE STATE LEGISLATURE. YOU HAVE A BILL AND YOU HAVE LOBBY FOR IT THE SAME WAY. THAT WAS ONE OF THE CONCERNS ABOUT SETTING UP AN INDEPENDENT SPECIAL DISTRICT.

SAME THING WHEN YOU HAVE AN ILA OR SPECIAL DISTRICT.

YOU WILL HAVE A POLITICAL PROCESS.

YOU WILL HAVE PEOPLE WANTING THIS AND THAT.

AND GO THROUGH THE WHOLE SCENARIO.

THE THING THAT IS PROBABLY I GUESS AT LEAST FOR ME AND THIS IS JUST MY OPINION AND I THINK THE OPINION OF OTHERS.

THE ABILITY TO OPT IN OR OPT OUT.

DOESN'T GO IN SPECIAL DISTRICT.

THE INNER LOCAL AGREEMENT ALLOWS YOU TO OPT IN AND OUT.

THE SPECIAL DISTRICT ALLOWS YOU TO OPT IN.

DOESN'T ALLOW YOU TO DROP OUT. THERE'S CITIES THAT MAY RELUCTANT TO GET IT. THE NEXT STEPS AS WE LOOK THESE WERE SOME OF THE STEPS THAT WE PREVIOUSLY TAKEN.

WE FORMULATED A RECOMMENDATION WHICH WILL GO TO GENERAL GOVERNING BODY. WHICH I KNOW JORDAN IS AN ALTERNATE AND ISROW IS AN ALTERNATE.

THE MUNICIPALITY CAN MAKE A DECISION IF THE INDEPENDENT DISTRICT IS SOMETHING TO GO WITH AND THEN THAT DATE HASN'T BEEN SET. THE FINAL DATE SHOULD NOT BE COMPLETE FOR YOU. THE INTENT TO GET THIS BEFORE IT STARTS NEXT YEAR. THERE IS SUPPORT FORS INDEPENDENT DISTRICT. WHO PUT THIS TOGETHER.

>> IT'S A COMBINATION OF. IT'S THE COMBINATION OF THE LAST TWO YEARS. YOU DON'T NEED KUDOS FROM ME BUT THAT WAS EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE.

>> PETER TO PAY PAUL. >> THAT WAS GOOD STUFF.

I HAVE A QUESTION. REGARDLESS OF THE THREE DIFFERENT AREAS. WHY DO YOU THINK THE INDEPENDENT IS MOST IMPORTANT FOR THE CITY OF PARKLAND.

ON THE BOARD I WAS REPRESENTING SMALL CITY.

WE REALLY HAVE NO LEVERAGE OR POWER INTO ANYTHING.

THIS WAY DEPENDING UPON AS I SAID IT'S REALLY LOOKING DOWN THE ROAD DOWN THE FUTURE. THE PLAN WILL BE FILLED.

WHERE ARE WE GOING TO PUT WASTE.

THIS IS, AGAIN, DECISIONS THAT WILL NEED TO BE DECIDED.

WILL BE BURN IT. ARE WE GOING TO USE RECYCLING? THIS IS SOMETHING THAT'S DISCUSSED TO CREATE THAT ENTERPRISE WHERE ARE THEY GOING TO BE USED FOR BEACHES; THE RECYCLING? IS THERE A MARKET FOR CERTAIN THINGS. COLLECTIVELY.

THE WAY WE'RE ALL IN IT TOGETHER.

>> IS THAT THE CONSENSUS? >> I SAY A 6-3 VOLT.

OBVIOUSLY THE COUNTY WANTED TO CONTROL IT.

THAT'S WHERE I THINK IF WE WEREN'T AND AGAIN FROM STANDPOINT OF YOU SIGN MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING.

[00:50:03]

I THINK 1 1/2 AGO. IF IT'S SOMETHING LIKE I SAID FROM OUR STANDPOINT. I DON'T THINK WE WANT TO BE CONTROLLED BY THE COUNTY. NOR DO I THINK THAT WE WANT TO HAVE SUCCESSFULLY THE INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT DIDN'T WORK LAST TIME. WHY DO WE WANT TO DO THE SAME THING AGAIN? I THINK THE INDEPENDENT DISTRICT IS SUCCESSFUL. I THINK PALM BEACH KIND OF HAS HYBRID. THEY ALLOW IN THIS IS NOT JUST -- THIS THE WHERE THE FLOW CONTROL ASPECT OF IT.

IT'S NOT NECESSARILY SOMEONE TELLING YOU HAVE TO HIRE SO AND SO TO DELIVER YOUR SOLID WASTE TO THIS PORTION.

THAT'S WHERE OUR NEGOTIATION. DEERFIELD BEACH HALLS FOR

THEMSELVES. >> THAT LETTOUT OUT, THOUGH.

>> YOU WOULDN'T OPT OUT OF THE FLOW CONTROL.

YOU WOULD JUST HAVE THE ABILITY TO HIRE LIKE EVERY CITY DOES IN PALM BEACH. TO HIRE HOW YOU WILL GET YOUR SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLING TO A FACILITY.

>> GOT IT. >> WE WOULD STILL HAVE THAT ABILITY TO NEGOTIATE. BUT THE BOTTOM LINE FOR FEES AND EVERYTHING ARE CREATED BY THIS AN INDEPENDENT DISTRICT.

MORE SO THAN A COUNTY. THERE'S A LOT OF FINANCIAL OPPORTUNITY THAT DISTRICT CAN ALLIZE THE COUNTY CANNOT.

IT'S A DIFFERENT FINANCIALS. >> I THINK IT MAKES SENSE FOR US TO BE PART OF THAT. WHAT ARE THE PROTECTION

MECHANISM? >> IS IT THAT THERE ARE OTHER SMALL CITIES WITHIN THAT INDEPENDENT OR ARE GOING TO BE PUT IN THE SAME POSITION AS PARKLAND AND THEN BE WOULD

HAVE COLLECTIVE VOICE? >> YOU WOULD STILL HAVE THE SAME GOVERNING BODY. IF IT WAS AS I SAID INDEPENDENT DISTRICT. IN THEORY THE COUNTY CONTROL.

THE COUNTY IS THE MAIN ENTITY THAT DOES A MAJORITY OF CONTROL KIND OF RELATED TO THAT COUNTY CONTROL.

THEY CONTROL SOME OF THE BUDGET.

THEY CONTROLLED THE ASSETS. >> HERE'S THE LARGER CITIES

WOULD CONTROL. >> THE LARGER CITIES WILL WANT TO HAVE MORE VOTE. THE WORK GROUP HAS OUT OF THE LARGER CITIES THEY HAVE FOUR REPRESENTATIVES.

THE MEDIUM SIZE CITIES HAVE THREE.

THE SMALLER ONES HAVE ONE. THE BENEFIT HERE IS THAT IF YOU ARE PART OF THIS AND IT DOESN'T PROVE TO ADVANTAGEOUS

WE CAN OPT OUT. >> AS AN INDEPENDENT DISTRICT YOU CAN OPT OUT. IF WE GO TO ANOTHER AREA, AGAIN IT GETS BACK INTO THE BENEFIT FOR US TO BE IF OUR GOAL IS TO LOOK IN THE FUTURE OF WHERE THIS SOLID WASTE IS.

AGAIN, IT COULD BE SOMEONE SAY YOU KNOW WHAT.

WE WILL CHARGE CITIES ANYWHERE.

THE COUNTY TURNS AROUND SAID WE WILL JUST ROLL IT OVER PUT IT INTO THE COUNTY BUDGET. THEN EVERYBODY BAYS THROUGH IT THROUGH MILLAGE RATE. HISTORICALLY IT'S BEEN A NON-AD VALOREM ASSESSMENT. THE CITY COULD DO THAT.

THERE COULD BE RESPONSES FROM SMALLER CITIES OR CITIES THAT ARE LOWER IN SOCIO ECONOMIC AREA.

WHY CHARGE RESIDENTS THAT LIVES IN 1,000 FOOT HOME 177.

WHY DON'T YOU ROLL INTO THE MILLAGE RATE.

THAT COULD HAPPEN AS A BENEFIT TO US WHEN I SAY SMALLER CITY.

NOT NECESSARILY THE BENEFIT SOME HOMEOWNER WITH LARGE LAND PROPERTY. IT COULD BE SOMETHING COULD BE WORKED OUT OR COULD BE BENEFIT TO CHARGING RESIDENTS LIKE WE DO ON OUR WASTE BILL. AND THEY PAY IT.

I'M COMFORTABLE WITH THE GRES YOU ARE MAKING AND THE WAY YOU ARE HEADED. COMMISSIONER ISROW, DO YOU

HAVE ANYTHING? >> I AGREE WITH THE INDEPENDENCE. ESPECIALLY IF THERE'S A CHANCE TO OPT OUT. AS LONG AS THERE'S CONSENSUS AMONGST THE REST. I THINK IT'S GOOD TO HAVE EVERYONE ON THE SAME PAGE. YOU SAID CAN OR CANNOT.

>> CANNOT. >> I THOUGHT YOU SAID CAN.

>> I THINK TO VICE-MAYOR'S POINT IN ORDER FOR IT TO WORK BETTER WE NEED EVERYONE TO BUY IN.

IF YOU HAVE A BOND AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU HAVE FIVE OR TEN CITIES THAT OPT OUT. THEN WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

>> FOR US, LIKE TO YOUR POINT. THE AMOUNT OF GARAGE WE HAVE

[00:55:03]

IS VERY LIMITED. WE HAVE 700,000 TONS A CURE.

WE GOT 11,000 TONS. I WILL NOT DRIVE THE CHANGE AND WE'RE BETTER OFF, I BELIEVE TO BE PARLIAMENT OF THE INDEPENDENT DISTRICT WHICH LEVELS THE PLAYING FIELD WHERE EVERYBODY IN THE COUNTY IS IN. IF WE TRY TO GO OUT ON OUR OWN NOT HAVING. IF WE WERE FORT LAUDERDALE WE WOULD HAVE A DIFFERENT VOICE. IF THE COUNTY DECIDES TO INCORPORATE INTO THE MILLAGE RATE DOES THAT DISBAND IT?

>> THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING. IF ITS DEPENDENT DISTRICT THE COUNTY COULD DECIDE HOW TO CONTROL THE BUDGET AND THEY COULD INCORPORATE IT INTO A MILLAGE RATE.

THE INDEPENDENT DISTRICT COULD DO THE SAME THING.

I THINK THE OVERALL TO ME THE OVERALL POINT IS THAT IF WE AS COLLECTIVELY AS A COUNTY. AGAIN, ALTHOUGH WE HAVE TRASH THAT WE HAVE, HAZARDOUS WASTE AND OTHER THINGS.

LET'S SAY WE DECIDE OR THIS INDEPENDENT DISTRICT WOULD DECIDE HAVE RECYCLING AVENUE. THAT WOULD BE STATE OF THE ART. BEING PART OF IT, WE WOULD GET THE BENEFIT OF 30 OTHER CITIES.

IF WE NEGOTIATE THAT OURSELVES AND WE'RE NOT PART OF AN

AGREEMENT. >> WE'RE BUYING IN BULK.

>> WE'RE PAYING 275 BECAUSE OUR RESIDENT WANT TO BE PART.

I THINK CUTLER, BRIER, YOU ARE GOOD?

>> MY LAST QUESTION I KNOW WE RAN THROUGH IT QUICKLY.

OUT OF ALL THE CITIES IN BROWARD, HOW MANY DO WE ENVISION OPTING IN. ALL OF THEM OR.

IT'S NOT A MATTER OF OPTING IN OR OUT.

OUR WORK GROUP IT HAD IT WHERE WE MADE IT.

THE NEXT PROCESS I GUESS A 1 1/2 AGO WHERE ALL 31 MUNICIPALILITIES GOT TOGETHER AND EVERYONE HAS A VOTE AND THE QUESTION WOULD BE. I DON'T KNOW THE SPECIFICS OF IT. BUT THE QUESTION WOULD BE HERE'S WHAT OUR RECOMMENDATION IS TO HAVE AN INDEPENDENT DISTRICT. ARE THERE QUESTIONS.

WHAT DOES EVERYONE THINK. THAT'S WHAT -- THAT'S WHAT YOU WOULD BE VOTING ON. YOU WOULD BE VOTING ON.

THE VOTE WOULD BE TAKEN AND I AS REPRESENTING THE CITY OF PARKLAND VOTE ON BEHALF OF THE CITY OF PARKLAND.

WITH THAT POINT. LET'S SAY YOU GUY GIVE ME THE BLESSING, WOULD VOTE NO WE'RE AN INDEPENDENT DISTRICT.

THERE MAY BE OTHERS AND AGAIN ON THAT WORK GROUP THERE ARE -- THERE WERE COMMISSIONER THAT WANTED A DEPENDENT DISTRICT. THEY MAY COME BACK AND SAY NO

MY CITY I SPOKE TO THEM. >> WE'RE VOTING ON THE DISTRICT NOT NECESSARILY WHAT WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING.

>> OKAY. I THINK WE'RE ALL.

>> THAT'S THE START OF IT. THE GOVERNING STRUCTURE.

WHERE DO YOU PUT THE CHICKEN. I THINK IT'S PERFECT.

YOU PRESENTATION WAS AMAZING. I THINK PERSONALLY YOU ARE HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. COMMISSIONER CUTLER.
