[6. Comments from the Public on Non-Agenda Items ]

PARKLAND. NOW WE GO TO COMMENTS FROM THE PUBLIC ON NON-AGENDA

ITEMS, DO WE HAVE ANY SPEAKERS? >> I HAVE A SPEAKER, JASON.

>> JASON. >> HOW'S IT GOING, JASON.

>> GOOD, NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD.

>> JASON, 9640. I'M THE BOARD PRESIDENT AT THE LANDINGS.

WE'VE BEEN FOLLOWING CLOSELY ON WORKING WITH TERESA PRICE IN REFERENCE TO DOT PROJECT, 465461-1. A WIDENING OF UNIVERSITY DRIVE SOUTH OF HOMEBURG. PROPOSING A $6 MILLION UNIVERSITY DRIVE. IT ALSO INCLUDES THE CORNER, MAKING CHANGES TO THE CORNER OF HOMBURG AND UNIVERSITY. RIGHT ON THE CORNER OF OUR COMMUNITY. THIS TAKES AWAY A BIKE LANE IT TAKES AWAY A BUFFER IN BETWEEN OUR COMMUNITY AND UNIVERSITY DRIVE.

QUITE FRANKLY, WE THINK IT'S A CLEATLY UNNECESSARY EXPANSION OF OF THAT ENTRANCE EVERY SINGLE - DAY, MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY, AND WE ARE NEVER STITTING THERE WAITING FOR SO MUCH AS A MINUTE TO BE ABLE TO PULL OUT. WE REQUESTED WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION THAT THEY REREVIEW THE TRAFFIC PATTERNS ON UNIVERSITY POST-COVID TO SEE IF IT STILL WARRANTS SUCH AN EXPANSION. NOW, I KNOW THAT THERE'S A ONLY SO MUCH THE CITY CAN DO THAT THAT SECTION OF UNIVERSITY IS A COUNTY PROPERTY, BUT, LOUDER VOICES ARE BETTER THAN NO VOICES. AND THE LANDINGS WANTS TO GO ON THE RECORD OF BEING COMPLETELY AGAINST THIS PROJECT AND WE ASK THAT THE CITY DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO HELP VOCALIZE THIS AND FIGHT FOR THIS NOT TO BE PART OF

THE PROJECT. >> THANK YOU.

>> ANYONE ELSE THAT WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON A NONAGENDA ITEM.

SEEING AS THERE'S NO ONE ELSE FROM THE PUBLIC, WE'LL GO TO THE COMMISSION T START WITH COMMISSIONER ISROW.

>> THANK YOU, MAYOR, GOOD EVENING EVERYBODY. I WANTED TO FOCUS MY COMMENTS THIS EVENING ON A VERY SPECIAL EXPERIENCE THAT MOST OF US ALL BUT SHARED OVER THE PAST WEEKEND WHICH WAS GETTING THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE WITH OUR LOCAL FIRE-FIGHTERS AND EMS AND PARTICIPATE IN THEIR FIRE OP IT IS TRAINING. I KNOW THAT MAY NOT SOUND LIKE SOMETHING WORTHY OF AN ENTIRE COMMENT BUT IT WAS. AND I WANT TO RELAY WHY, WHICH IS ONE, I THINK MANY PEOPLE TAKE FOR GRANTED WHAT LAW ENFORCEMENT AND HEALTH AND RESCUE DO, BECAUSE IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT'S ALWAYS THERE. IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S KIND OF A KNOWN THING, THAT WHETHER YOU SEE IT ON YOUR DAY OH DAY EXPERIENCE OR NOT, IT'S THERE. BUT TO BE ABLE TO GO BEHIND THE SCENES AND GET A DEEPER DIVE INTO WHAT IT IS THAT MEES MEN AND WOMEN DO EVERYDAY, AND THE ACTUAL RISK THEY TAKE IN THE NAME OF KEEPING OUR CITY SAFE IS REALLY AN EXTRAORDINARY THING. AND I WANTED TO REALLY JUST TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ONE, THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO, AND TWO, ALSO THANK OUR CITY BECAUSE IT SHOWS THAT THE AMOUNT THAT WE'VE INVESTED IN THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF OUR CITY. THIS ISN'T JUST A RUN OF THE MILL DEPARTMENT. IT IS AN AWARD WINNING, TOP OF THE LINE, EXTREMELY WELL RUN AND TO THE

[00:10:01]

POINT THAT IT'S NOT JUST THE WORK THEY DO, IT'S HOW THEY DO IT. YOU KNOW, EVERYONE WHO I SPOKE WITH THERE WAS PASSIONATE ABOUT THEIR JOB AND THE CITY OF PARKLAND, AND THE RELATIONSHIP WITH CORAL SPRINGS. AND THE COMRADERY THEY ALL SHARED WAS INCREDIBLE TO SEE AND I THINK ALL OF US ARE VERY FORTUNATE WHETHER WE ACKNOWLEDGE IT EVERYDAY OR NOT, TO HAVE THEM LOOKING AFTER US. I WANT TO TAKE THE TIME TO AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR THE EXPERIENCE, I'M NOT GOING TO GO SO FAR AS TO SAY, ESPECIALLY WITH BOTH OF YOU HERE, WHETHER THE TRAINING WAS BETTER THAN BSO'S ACTIVE FIRE SHOOTING TRAINING, BUT, I REALLY JUST WANTED TO CONVEY MY SINCERE APRECIATION. I WILL HAVE A TOTALLY NOW FOUND PERSPECTIVE, AND IN FACT, JUST THE OTHER DAY, IT HIT ME, DRIVING HOME FROM WORK, I SAW ON 441, A BAD ACCIDENT, AND I SAW A FIRE TRUCK WITH A NUMBER OF AMBULANCES THERE, THE NORMAL THING YOU DO, LOOK GOING BY AND I SAW THERE WAS AN AIR COMPRESSOR, WHICH I ACTUALLY LEARNED THEY WERE USING THE JAWS OF LIFE TO REMOVE PEOPLE FROM A CAR. THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT SIGNED UP FOR A JOB NOT JUST FOR A PAYCHECK BUT BECAUSE THEY TRULY BELIEVE IN THE MISSION OF HELPING AND MAKING SURE THAT OUR PEOPLE ARE SAFE IN OUR COMMUNITY. I THINK WE ALL RECOGNIZE THAT IT'S VERY RARE FOR PEOPLE TO GET THE BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK, BUT I'M GRATEFUL FOR IT AND THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO. THAT'S MY COMMENT.

>> WELL SAID, COMMISSIONER ISROW.

>> COMMISSIONER BRIER? >> SURE. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I'LL LET GO OF SOME OF COMMISSIONER ISROW'S COMMENTS AS WELL. THEY DESERVE ALL THE RECOGNITION IN THE WORLD. I WANT TO THANK OUR CITY FOR CONTINUING TO RECOGNIZE THE AUTISM THOSE WHO ARE IN THE AUTISM COMMUNITY, AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH IS ALL OVER THE NATION, BUT OUR CITY IS TAKING AN INORDINATE EFFORT TO BECOME AN AUTISM-FRIENDLY CITY. AND TO THOSE WATCHING FOR THE FIRST TIME, REALIZING THAT IT'S SOMETHING THAT I'M VERY PROUD OF WITH THE CITY OF PARKLAND.

TODAY AND EVERYDAY WE WEAR BLUE IN SUPPORT OF THOSE WITH AUTISM BUT ESPECIALLY IN PARKLAND WHERE WE HAVE A HEART AND GENUINE PASSION FOR MAKING PARKLAND AN AUTISM FRIENDLY CITY. I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND ALL OF OUR RESIDENTS THAT WE HAVE UPCOMING FARMER'S MARKET INCLUDING THE BUSINESS EXPO. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOUR CITY STAFF, OUR PARKS AND REC DEPARTMENT FOR THE AMAZING EVENTS THAT WERE LAST WEEKEND FOR THE EXTRAVAGANZA AND THE DRIVE-IN. IT IS, EVERY TIME TO HEAR FROM A RESIDENT WHO HAS ATTENDED ONE OF THESE EVENTS, IT BRINGS HOME THE NOTION WE'RE A BIG TOWN WITH A SMALL-TOWN HEART. WITH THE SENSE OF COMMUNITY FROM THE PEOPLE WHO AT ATT ATTENDED THERE, I UNDERSTAND THERE WAS ONE NON-RESIDENT. PARKLAND IS A SPECIAL PLACE EVEN CONSIDERED AGAINST OTHER COMMUNITIES IN BROWARD AND I THINK WE NEED TO CONTINUE DOING WHAT WE'RE DOING, MAYBE TURN UP THE VOLUME AT TIMES CANS BUT CONTINUING TO SHOWCASE THE HEART AND SENSE OF COMMUNITY THAT WE HAVE HERE IN PARKLAND BECAUSE I THINK IT'S SECOND TO NONE. SO, WITH THAT, I THANK THE STAFF FOR

ALL THEY'RE DOING. >> THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER

BRIER. >> THANK YOU MAYOR.

>> VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN? >> I JUST WANT TO MENTION THE PASSING OF CONGRESSMAN ALSEE HASTINGS. HIS ADVOCACY CIVIL ACTION AND ENGAGEMENT WILL BE FOREVER EMBEDDED IN OUR COMMUNITY ESPECIALLY IN SOUTH FLORIDA. I ALWAYS FOUND THE CONGRESSMAN TO BE WELCOME, WARM, AND APPROACHABLE, ALTHOUGH HIS LEGACY WILL BE LEFT, HIS LEADERSHIP WILL BE CERTAINLY MISSED. HE WAS A GREAT MAN WITH A TREMENDOUS HISTORY. AGAIN, ECHOING THE SAME SENTIMENTS WITH AUTISM AND AWARENESS MONTH. I ENCOURAGE IF ANYBODY WANTS TO SEE A MODEL OF BUSINESS THAT EMPLOYS PEOPLE WITH AUTISM, I WOULD GO TO THE RISING TIDE CAR WASH. NOT ONLY DO THEY DO A GREAT JOB WITH EMPLOYING PEOPLE WITH AUTISM, BUT THEY DO A GREAT JOB WASHING YOUR CAR. IT'S ALSO, I GUESS THE MAYOR SAID IN THE MONTHLY COMMENTS THAT YOU MAKE IN THE MAGAZINE'S NEWSPAPERS, IT IS CHILD ABUSE

[00:15:01]

PREVENTION MONTH. VERY IMPORTANT, I'VE LEARNED FROM DOING MY GUARDIAN ADD LIGHT ITEM BRAINING, IT'S SOMETHING THAT CAN BE PREVENTIBLE WITH A LOT OF TRAINING, AS FAR AS MENTAL HEALTH AND THINGS OUT THERE. SO, IT'S DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE. I DID ATTEND MOVIE NIGHT IN THE PARK. IT WAS SURPRISINGLY WELL ATTENDED. ESPECIALLY DURING SPRING BREAK AGAIN, STAFF DOING A FANTASTIC JOB AS WELL AS THE DRIVE-IN EXTRAVAGANZA. I WANT TO ECHO WHAT THE COMMISSIONER SAID WITH REGARD TO FIRE-FIGHTER TRAINING, I THINK HE AND I WERE THE ONLY ONE THAT IS WENT INTO THE FIRE. BUT, CHIEF, YOU GUYS DO AN AMAZING JOB, I KNOW THIS WAS MY SECOND TRAINING THAT I'VE HAD AND CERTAILY BEING A SEASONED VETERAN, YOU LEARN MORE AND MORE EVERY TIME YOU GO THROUGH IT, SO THANK YOU GUYS FOR PUTTING THAT ON. I DO WANT TO CONGRATULATE COACH ROUNDTREE.

SHE WAS NAMED THE SOCCER COACH OF THE YEAR. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW COACH ROUNDTREE, IT'S CERTAINLY WE WILL DESERVED.

THIS MORNING WE HAD A CHAMBER MEETING AND CAREER SOURCE BROWARD ALSO HAD GOT IN FRONT OF US IN TALKING ABOUT OPPORTUNITIES FOR EMPLOYMENT AND BUSINESSES BEING ABLE TO UTILIZE CAREER SOURCE AS A SOURCE FOR INTERNS, OR EVEN, STAFF THAT THEY MIGHT NEED. AND CONGRATULATIONS TO DOUG EATEN WHO IS NOW THE CHAMBER CHAIR ELECT. I REMINDER IT'S NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK, AND I BELIEVE THE LIBRARY IS WAIVING FINES IN EXCHANGE FOR CANNED GOODS OR NON-PARISHABLE ITEMS, I THINK FOR EVERY ITEM YOU BRING IT IT'S A DOLLAR OFF OF OUR FEES. I PROMOTED THE STORY WALK THAT WE DID AS WELL AS CLUES IN THE PARK. BOTH PROGRAMS ENGAGE OUR YOUTH TO DEVELOP SPEECH AND LANGUAG SKILLS AS WELL AS CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS. "AMY WOO AND THE PATCPATCHWORK DRAGON". ONE THE THINGS THAT WAS BROUGHT UP WAS THE INCREASE OR PROPOSED INCREASE THAT FPNL IS GOING TO BE PROVIDING IT'S ABOUT A 15% INCREASE, EVERY FOUR YEARS, FPNL CAN PETITION THE FLORIDA PUBLIC FOR A RATE INCREASE. THEIR LAST RATE INCREASE WAS 2016. JUST AGAIN, SOME HIGHLIGHTS, THE INCREASE WOULD BE FACED IN, THEREFORE CUSTOMERS WOULD SEE A RATE INCREASE FROM 3.6% ANNUALLY FROM 2022 TO 2025. THE RATE INCREASE HELPED PAY FOR THE $29 BILLION THAT FPNL INVESTED IN THE FOUR-YEAR PERIOD FROM 2019 TO 2022. THIS OBVIOUSLY IMPROVES AS MUCH AS RELIABILITY, REDUCED EMISSIONS, IMPROVES FUEL GENERATION EFFICIENCY AND REDUCE POWER OUTAGES DURING SEVERE WEATHER. THE INCREASES THAT THEY ARE PROPOSING, I WOULD, AND I GUESS I WOULD REFER TO NANCY AS MAYBE FPNL CAN PROVIDE US INFORMATION WHETHER THROUGH A WORKSHOP OR COME TO A COMMISSION MEETING AS WELL AS IF THEY HAVE ANY INFORMATION JUST TO LET RESIDENTS KNOW THIS INCREASE IS COMING FORWARD. SO, THOSE ARE MAY COMMENTS.

>>> THANK YOU, VICE MAYOR. COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

>> THANK YOU, MAYOR, I WILL REITERATE WHAT MY FELLOW COMMISSIONERS HAVE SAID. YOU GUYS HAVE TAKEN MOST OF THE STUFF, IN REGARDS TO THE FIRE-FIGHTER THING, THAT'S THE SECOND TIME I'VE HADM TO DO THA AND IT WAS INCREDIBLE. AND AS ALWAYS I WANT TO EXPRESS THAT THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO SERVE US ARE HEROS IN WHAT THEY DO AND WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO AND HOW DIFFICULT AND DEMANDING IT IS. MY HAT'S OFF TO YOU IN THAT

[00:20:05]

REGARD. ONE OTHER THING I WOULD ADD IS THAT TOMORROW I WILL BE REPRESENTING THE CITY AT THE HILLSBORO PINPINELAND NATURAL A WHERE THEY WILL BE RENAMING IT AS THE CHRISTIAN JACOBS NATURAL AREA. WE WANT EVERYBODY TO KNOW HOW MUCH WE SUPPORT THE PROPOSAL TO RENAME THE HILLS BORROW PINELAND NATURAL AREA FOR HER 16 YEARS OF SERVICE TO BROWARD COUNTY AS COMMISSIONER DEDICATION. PROVIDE PROMINENT AND LASTING RECOGNITION OF HER ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP TO THE RESIDENTS THEY REPRESENTING.

GIVEN THE MAYBE FEATURES OF THE SPECIFIC PROGRAMS AND PRINCIPALS. THE MANY LISTS OF IMPACTFUL ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES LED BY HER WILL UNDICTEDLY PROVIDE LASTING POSITIVE BENEFITS FOR ALL IN BROWARD COUNTY, AND IT'S JUST DOWN THE STREET FROM OUR CITY. IT WOULD BE A GREAT HONOR FOR THOSE WHO KNEW HER AND EFFECTED BY HER TIRELESS EFFORTS TO RECOGNIZE HER LEGACY OF SERVICE BY THE RENAMING ONE OF BROWARD COUNTY'S UNIQUE AREAS. I WANT TO EXPRESS TO HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS THAT I WANT THIS RENAMING TO BRING THEM PEACE AND COMFORT. MAY THE PARK IN IT'S NATURAL STATE SERVE AS A BEAK BEACON AND MAY ALL OF THE MEMORIES OF HERB A BLESSING TO

YOU. THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH, COMMISSIONER. WELL SAID FOR CHRISTIAN JACOBS AND THANK YOU FOR REPRESENTING THE CITY TOMORROW. I HAVE A FEW COMMENTS, OBVIOUSLY YOU GUYS MADE MOST OF THEM. THE FIRE OPES TRAINING HAD A LOT OF FUN. NO, I DID NOT GO INTO THE BURN BECAUSE I DID NOT WANT TO SHAVE MY BEARD, SO THE FIRE DEPARTMENT HAS WEIRD RULES, YOU CAN'T HAVE PEOPLE WITH BEARDS, I WOULD BE HARD PRESSED TO BE A FIRE-FIGHTER. BUT KUDOS, YOU GUYS SHOWED IT'S IMPRESSIVE AND I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING YOU GUYS DO AND THANK YOU FOR HAVING US. I HOPE EVERYBODY HAD A GREAT EASTER AND PASSOVER, I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO STRATEGIC PLANNING THIS COMING WEEKEND, IT'S A LOT OF FUN, AND IT GIVES US THE OPPORTUNITY AS COMMISSIONERS TO TALK ABOUT WHAT WE HEAR FROM THE RESIDENTS OF WHAT THEY WANT, HOW THEY WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE CITY AND IT REALLY GIVES US, YOU KNOW, THAT OPPORTUNITY, TO ENGAGE WITH STAFF AND KIND OF PROJECT A LITTLE BIT HOW WE SEE THE CITY MOVING FORWARD. SO, I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT EXTREMELY. AS COMMISSIONER BRIER SAID, WE GOT THE BUSINESS WELL, THE FARMER'S MARKET IS SUNDAY. AND THEN, ON THE 25TH, WOULD BE THE BUSINESS EXPO THAT'S ANY PARKLAND BRICK AND MORTAR BUSINESS IS FREE. ANY BUSINESS IS FREE, BUT PARKLAND BRICK AND MORTAR BUSINESSES ARE FREE. JUST GO ON OUR WEBSITE AND SIGN UP TO DO THAT. JUST, A COUPLE OF QUICK LITTLE UPDATES OBJECT LENAR. JUST TO MAKE SURE WE CONTINUE TO TRY TO KEEP THE RESIDENTS INFORMED SO YOU KNOW WE'RE ALWAYS WORKING TOWARDS BETTERING THE CITY AND BETTERING YOUR EXPERIENCE. SOME QUICK UPDATES. WE REACHED OUT TO FPNL, I KNOW THERE WERE LIGHT ISSUES IN TASKADA BUT WE REACHED OUT DIRECTLY AND WE DID HAVE COMMUNICATION WITH THEM, THEY'VE BEEN WORKING VERY HARD AND THEY'VE BEEN ON SITE, THEY UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT WE SEE THIS AS A CITY THAT THEY GET THIS PROJECT FINISHED. SO THEY'RE DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN, THE SIGNS, I SAW THEM THE OTHER DAY, THEY WERE REPLACED, SO THANKFULLY THAT WAS FINALLY DONE. PARKLAND BAY. WE NOTICED AS A CITY, THERE ARE SOME STACKING ISSUES IN THE ENTRANCES, SO WE'VE BEEN DEALING WITH BROWARD COUNTY AND ALSO LENAR TO FIX THAT. BROWARD COUNTY CAME UP WITH A SOLUTION.

THEY'RE ADDING A SECRETARY SECURITY GUARD WITH AN IPAD TO TRY AND SPEED UP THE ENTERING OF THE COMMUNITY. WE ADDRESSED

[00:25:06]

TODAY, A CLUB HOUSE THE TENNIS COURTS, THE FENCES ARE A LITTLELY, NEEDLESS TO SAY, THEY DID JUMP ON THAT RIGHT AWAY SO I DO APPRECIATE THAT FROM THEM. I DO WANT TO MENTION DOUG AND CONGRATULATIONS TO HIM FOR BEING THE PRESIDENT-ELECT. I WANT TO MENTION THE VACCINE. MAKE SURE YOU GUYS ARE OUT THERE GETTING THE VACCINE, I WAS ABLE TO GET MY FIRST SHOT THE OTHER DAY, I'M EXCITED ABOUT THAT, LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING MY SECOND SHOT SOON. SO HOPEFULLY YOU GUYS ARE OUT THERE GETTING YOUR SHOT AND TO ECHO ALL THE EVENTS, THE EXTRAVAGANZA, THE MOVIES IN THE NIGHTS, THE FARMER'S MARKET, WE DO FANTASTIC EVENTS, THE COMMUNITY LOVES THEM AND WE LOVE THEM AND I APPRECIATE THE STAFF ON MAKING SURE THAT STUFF GETS DONE. THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS.

CORPORATION. >> THAT'S IT?

>> OKAY. SO, I JUST WANT TO TALK A LITTLE ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR ROUND ABOUT TO GIVE A HILL HISTORY OF THIS ROUND ABOUT HERE. SO, FROM, YOU KNOW FROM TIME TO TIME WE LIKE TO GIVE UPDATES SO PEOPLE UNDERSTAND WHAT'S GOING ON. THESE PROCESSES DO TAKE SOME TIME. SO, THIS PROCESS KICKED OFF WITH A CITYWIDE TRAFFIC STUD IN JULY OF 2018. A CONSULTANT WAS IDENTIFIED, THE INTERSECTION AS A LOCATION FOR TRAFFIC BACKUP DURING RUSH HOURS. ANYBODY TRAVELING ON UNIVERSITY KNOWS THE ISSUES WE HAVE. ONE SOLUTION PROPOSED WAS TO ADD A LANE. BROWARD COUNTY HAS TO IMPROVE ALL IMPROVEMENTS TO OUR ROAD WAYS, AND THEY DID APPROVE THAT SOLUTION BUT REQUESTED THE REMOVAL OF THE A STOP SIGN. PEOPLE ON UNIVERSITY WOULD BE SPEEDING, DOWN UNIVERSITY. SO THAT'S OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING THAT ARE YOU KNOW, THE CITY THOUGHT COULD POTENTIALLY BE DANGEROUS.

IS SO, THEN THAT'S WHEN THE CITY STARTED TO LOOK AT ADDING A ROUND ABOUT. THE CITY THEN BEGAN WORKING WITH TOLL BROTHERS WHO BUILT THE COUNTRY CLUB COMMUNITY AND WERE NEARING THE END OF THEIR WORK. SO BY SEPTEMBER OF 2020 TOLL BROTHERS WOULD BE FREE OF ANY FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS AND THE BURDEN WOULD FALL TOTALLY TO THE RESIDENTS. SO THE CITY SECURED NEARLY

[00:35:01]

$500,000 FROM TOLL BROTHERS TO OFF SET FUTURE IMPROVEMENTS TO THAT INTERSECTION. THIS WAS KEY TO ENSURE A MUCH NEEDED SAFETY IMPROVEMENT TO THIS HIGH PROFILE INTERSECTION. THE IMPROVEMENT THAT BE APPROVED TONIGHT, I WANT TO EMPHASIZE, DUE TO OUR PROACTIVE NEGOTIATIONS WITH TOLL BROTHERS THIS WILL COST THE CITY $445. ANOTHER CRITICAL COST SAVING ELEMENT WHICH WE APPROVED AT THE MARCH 3RD COMMISSION MEETING WAS THE LONG-TERM MAINTENANCE AND THE WATER FEATURE, UNIFORMED LOOKED THAT'S CONSISTENT WITH THEIR COMMUNITY, IMPORTANT TO THE CITY, THAT MEANS WE WILL NOT BEAR THAT FINANCIAL BURDEN. PARKLAND GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB WILL BE MAINTAINING THAT ROUND ABOUT.

SO THESE COSTS THAT WE SPEND TODAY, WILL BE THE LAST DOLLARS WE SHOULD HAVE TO SPEND ON THAT ROUND B I WANT TO THANK THIS COMMISSION AND MEMBERS OF OUR PREVIOUS COMMISSIONS TO PLANNING AND ZONING, A LOT OF WORK, OBVIOUSLY, CITY STAFF. A LOT OF WORK WENT INTO THIS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE PROVIDING PROPER TRAFFIC. I ALSO WANT TO MAKE SURE TO THANK OUR RESIDENTS WHO WEIGHED IT ON THE PREFERENCE FOR THE ROUND ABOUT, SO THIS ROUND ABOUT THAT'S COMING IS ONE THAT WAS CHOSEN BY OUR RESIDENTS. I THINK THAT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT WE ALWAYS VALUE RESIDENT'S OPINION, SO WE WENT OUT WITH A COUPLE OF OPTIONS FOR THEM TO CHOOSE FROM AND YOU KNOW, THE COMMISSION HERE DIDN'T CHOOSE WHICH ROUND ABOUT WAS GOING IN, THAT WAS SOMETHING CHOSEN BY THE RESIDENTS. ONE THING WE NEED TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN WE DO THE BUDGETS AND STRATEGIC PLANNING. CITY STAFF DOES THE BEST THEY CAN TO ALSO ENSURE THAT THEY'RE BUDGETING ON PARTICULAR PROJECTS. SOMETIMES WHEN YOU PUT A BUDGET TOGETHER ON A PROJECT, IT DOESN'T HAPPEN FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS, COSTS GO UP, AND IT MAKES IT A LITTLE DIFFICULT. I DON'T WANT TO MAKE IT SOUND AS THOUGH I'M STICKING UP FOR CITY STAFF, OVER THE PAST YEAR WITH COVID WE'VE SEEN CERTAINLY IN THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN MATERIALS, YOU SEE IT AT THE GAS STATION OR RAW MATERIALS, WHETHER IT BE BRICK, WOOD, YOU KNOW, ALUMINUM. SO THERE HAS BEEN A DRASTIC INCREASE IN MATERIAL COST, THAT'S SOMETHING THAT'S DIFFICULT TO SEE. I UNDERSTAND HOW SOMETIMES THINGS COME IN OVER BUDGET, THIS ONE IS LITTLE MORE THAN WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE. BUT SOME OF THOSE COSTS WHICH WE COULD SEE, WHICH IS IN THE BACKUP, THE STONE MATERIAL, THE LANDSCAPING MATERIAL, THOSE COSTS HAVE GONE UP DRAMATICALLY, BECAUSE WITH EVERYBODY STAYING HOME, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE WORKING ON THEIR HOMES, SO THERE ARE A LOT OF CONTRIBUTING FACTORS TO THAT. I KNOW STAFF TRIED VERY HARD TO GET IN ON THE BUDGET, THIS ONE WAS ONE A LITTLE MORE DIFFICULT, BUT THE EXPLANATIONS TO US, OR TO ME, ANYWAY, MADE SENSE AND I APPRECIATE EVERYBODY'S HARD WORK ON THAT AND I THINK THIS TRAFFIC CIRCLE WILL BE A BIG PLUS TO THE CITY OF PARKLAND, NOT ONLY WILL IT HELP TRAFFIC, BUT IT WILL LOOK VERY NICE. I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THIS GET STARTED AND COMPLETED. VICE

MAYOR MAYERSOHN? >> JUST TO ECHO A LITTLE BIT OF THOSE SAME SENTIMENTS, YOU ALSO HAVE, I GUESS IN THE THUMB HERE, MAINTENANCE OF TRAFFIC, IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THEY'RE GOING TO BE BASE CANNILY THERE, 24 HOURS A DAY BECAUSE OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE ROUND ABOUT TO ENSURE SAFETY OF THE RESIDENTS AS THEY GO THROUGH THAT AREA. NORMALLY A LOT OF PROJECTS THAT WE DO DON'T HAVE THAT IMPACT. IT MAY JUST BE THERE, I KNOW WHEN THEY'VE DONE MA MAINTENANCE ON OTHER AREAS, SOMEBODY'S OUT THERE FOR 12 HOURS DURING CONSTRUCTION, THIS IS A MORE INTENSE PROJECT.

>> I SEE THIS AS SOMETHING THAT WILL BENEFIT THE CITY, I THANK STAFF FOR WORKING ON IT. I THANK THE FOLKS AT PARKLAND GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB ON THEIR BOARD FOR WORKING WITH US ON THE MAINTENANCE. I THINK OUR RESIDENTS WILL HAVE TO BE

[00:40:04]

PATIENT. THIS IS GOING TO BE WORSE BEFORE IT GETS BETTER IN TERMS OF THE TRAFFIC WHILE CONSTRUCTION IS GOING ON, I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE WE'RE BEING PATIENT WITH THAT PROCESSION.

>> COMMISSIONER CUTLER. >> I WANT TO MAKE SURE THE

NUMBERS ARE CLEAR. $445,000. >> I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WAS CLEAR BECAUSE I HEARD A DIFFERENT NUMBER. I AGREE, LISTEN, WE'RE IN CRAZY TIMES, I MEAN WITH COVID AND ALL THE DIFFERENT MOVING PARTS WITH OUR ECONOMY AND EVERYTHING ELSE, YOU KNOW, I UNDERSTAND THAT THE CITY BUDGETED $600 AND $40,000 FOR THIS, AND THAT THIS AMOUNT OF MONEY BEING ASKED FOR IS FROM A PERCENTAGE BASIS, A PRETTY BIG INCREASE, BUT I'M ALSO GIVEN TO UNDERSTAND BASED ON THE MATERIALS AND WHAT STAFF HAS TOLD ME IS THAT THEY PUT THIS OUT FOR BID AND THEY GOT FOUR SEPARATE BIDS, ALL OF WHICH CAME IN RIGHT AROUND THE SAME KIND OF NUMBERS. AND SO, YOU KNOW, THAT'S AN INDICATION, ESPECIALLY THE WAY THE BIDDING PROCESS WORKS, THAT'S AN INDICATION OF WHAT THE MARKETPLACE WILL BEAR FOR THIS KIND OF PROJECT. AND WHILE, I TAKE IT VERY SERIOUSLY T SPENDING THE TAXPAYER'S DOLLARS ON GETTING PROJECTS DONE, THIS IS A PROJECT THAT WILL DRAMATICALLY IMPROVE THE SAFETY AND THE TRAFFIC LEVELS OF THAT ROADWAY AREA. IT WAS ONE OF THE ANTICIPATED PARTS OF WHAT WE ULTIMATELY WERE NEGOTIATING ON WHEN THE CHARTER IT SCHOOL WAS COMING IN BECAUSE OF QUESTIONS OF WHAT KIND OF TRAFFIC IMPACT THAT WAS GOING TO HAVE AND, I THINK THIS IS REALLY A NECESSARY MOVING PART FOR US FOR TRAFFIC FLOW PURPOSES IF

NOTHING ELSE. >> AND JUST TO REITERATE, KUDOS TO ANTHONY, WHEN YOU GET FOUR BIDS THAT CLOSE TOGETHER, THAT SAYS YOU DID YOUR JOB RIGHT. YOU PUT OUT THE RFP SO RESIGHSLY, THAT EVERYONE'S BIDDING THE SAME. SOMEONE WHO BIDS LARGE PROJECTS ON A CONTINUING BASIS, A LOT OF TIMES YOU'LL SEE SOMEONE AT $1 MILLION, SOMEBODY AT $500,000, SOMEONE AT 7 THAN AND $50,000. IT'S VERY RARE, TO SEE FOUR BID, IT DOES HAPPEN, BUT THAT'S KUDOS TO YOU. BECAUSE THAT'S TOTALLY ON THE PRP PROCESS THERE.

>> COMMISSIONER ISROW? >> MY QUESTION WOULD BE IS YOU MADE AN EMPHASIS IN WHICH I ALSO AGREE WITH, IT WAS NICE TO SEE THE RESIDENTS GOT THE OPPORTUNITY TO PICK THE DESIGN.

I ALSO SEE THE NUMBER OF THESE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE DESIGNS PICKED. THE QUESTION THAT I RAISE THAT THESE RESIDENTS WHO SELECTED THIS, THE ALTERNATIVE IS ALMOST WITHIN THE BUDGET AND DOESN'T REQUIRE AN ADDITIONAL $300,000 SPEND, WOULD THEY MAKE THAT SAME DECISION. ONE IS HAVE WE EXPLORED WHAT THE ALTERNATIVE COSTS WOULD BE WITH THE ALTERNATIVE DESIGN WHAT THAT

NUMBER IS. >> I BELIEVE WHEN WE PUT IT OUT WE HAD THE COST ASSOCIATED WITH THAT.

>> FOR THIS PARTICULAR PROCESS, WE DID NOT GET A COST ON ALTERNATIVE DESIGN. WE HAD THE RESIDENTS SELECT THE DESIGN THEY FAVORED AND WE MOVED FORWARD. NOW, IN TERMS OF THE DESIGN COST VERSUS THE ACTUAL CONSTRUCTION COSTS, YOU'RE LOOKING AT 200 PLUS ON THE ACTUAL CONSTRUCTION COSTS FOR THE FEATURE, THE OTHER FEATURE IN THE PACT, THE ONLY ELEMENTS MISSING WERE MORE THE FO FOUNTAIN FEATURES.

>> I THINK THE OTHER FEATURE HAD TALLER PILLARS, HAD A

TRELACE. >> ONE OF THE ISSUES WHEN THIS WAS REVIEWED BY PLANNING AND ZONING, ONE OF THE ISSUES THAT CAME UP, YOU HAD YOU COULD HAVE THESE FEATURES OR NOTHING AT ALL. AND WHEN I SAY NOTHING ATAD ALL, WHICH IS JUST DIRT AND LANDSCAPING, THAT WAS NOT CONSIDERED AN OPTION. IT WAS THESE FEATURES THAT NOT ONLY PLANNING AND ZONING WANTED BUT

THE COMMUNITY WANTED. >> AND PLANNING AND ZONING, I THINK AT SOME POINT WE KNEW THAT THE WATER FEATURE WOULD COST MORE, I DON'T KNOW IF WE KNEW HOW MUCH MORE.

>> CORRECT, AND REALTIME KEY ELEMENT OF THAT WATER FEATURE IS

[00:45:05]

PARKLAND GOLFING COMMUNITY WANTED IT TO BE UNIFORM WITH THEIR FEATURES. THAT ECHOS THE SELECTION OF THEIR CHOICE. NOW, IF WE WENT TO THE ALTERNATE CHOICE, THOSE WERE LARGER AND IT COULD HAVE BEEN A WASH ON THE PRICE TOO.

>> JUST TO BE CLEAR, PARKLAND GOLF PREFERRED THAT ONE BUT THEY'RE DECISION IN THAT, IT WAS STILL THE RESIDENTS' DECISION, THAT WAS THEIR PREFERENCE. BUT IT WAS STILL ON THE RESIDENTS AS A WHOLE. ANYBODY FROM THE PUBLIC THAT WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK

ON THIS AGENDA ITEM? >> NO ONE FROM THE PUBLIC.

ANYBODY ELSE FROM THE COMMISSION?

>> MOTION? ANYONE? >> MOTION TO APPROVE.

>> I'LL SECOND. >> SO, I GOT A MOTION TO APPROVE BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER, SECOND BY VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN.

ROLL CALL. >> COMPANY BRIER?

>> YES >> COMMISSIONER CUTLER?

>> YES COMMISSIONER ISROW? YES.

>> VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN? >> YES. MAYOR WALKER?

>> YES. >> PLEASE SHOW IS PASSES

UNANIMOUSLY. >> ITEM 9-D, PARCEL DEDICATION FOR PUBLIC ROAD RIGHT OF WAY, LOCKS ROAD PROJECT, A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF PARKLAND FLORIDA, DEDICATING A PARCEL OF PROPERTY, PROVIDING FOR RECORDING,

SEVERABILITY AND AN EFFECT DATE. >> THANK YOU FOR PURPOSES OF THE PUBLIC, THE PROJECT IS A MULTIAGENCY PROJECT THAT WOULD INCLUDE LIGHTING, LANDSCAPING, DRAINAGE STRUCTURES, AND THE CONSTRUCTION OF ROUND ABOUTS. PARKSIDE IT DRIVE AND LOCKS HATCH SHI ROAD. THE CITY OWNS A LITTLE OVER 4.5 ACRES AT THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THAT LOCATION. THE DOT IS REQUESTING APPROXIMATELY 6,400 SQUARE FEET OF THAT REAL ESTATE IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE THE PROPOSED ROUND ABOUT. THE PROPERTY ITSELF WAS DEDICATED AS A PARK PARCEL TO THE CITY, HOWEVER THE CITY HAS NO PLANS TO DEVELOP THAT PROPERTY AT THIS TIME. AND AS SUCH, STAFF BELIEVES IT'S IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CITY TO CONVERT THE PORTION OF THE PROPERTY REQUESTED TO ACCOMMODATE THE PROPOSED ROUND ABOUT AT THE INTERSECTION OF LOCKS ROAD AND PARKSIDE DRIVE. THE NEXT STEP WOULD BE TO RECORD THE SURVEY AND LEGAL DEDESCRIPTION FOR THE PARCEL IN ORDER TO EFFECTUATE THE PROPERTY. FOR THE PARCEL DEDICATION FOR THE PUBLIC ROAD RIGHT OF WAY FOR THE

INTERSECTION OF LOXAHACHIE ROAD. >> THANK YOU. SO, OBVIOUSLY, LOX ROAD IS SOMETHING THAT COMES TO US VERY OFTEN. APPROVING THE RIGHT OF WAY GETS US ONE STEP FORWARD. ONE OF THE KEY STEPS YOU'LL HEAR US, OVER THIS IS BEING PATIENT. LOX ROAD WILL BE TIED UP FOR A LONG TIME. WHETHER YOU'RE FOUR SEASONS, WATER CREST, IT'S GOING TO TAKE TIME TO GET THIS DONE. THERE'S APPROXIMATELY SIX MILE STRETCH OF LOX THAT THE CITY OWNS.

THERE'S SIX MILES, THE CITY OWNS ONE MILE. THAT MEANS OTHER AGENCIES, NOT JUST THE CITY HAVE CONTROL OVER THE ROADWAY. A LOT OF TIMES, PEOPLE COME TO US AND SAY, HOW COME THE CITY CAN'T DO THIS, OR THE CITY'S GOT TO DO THIS, WE DON'T ALWAYS HAVE AS MUCH CONTROL AS WE WOULD LIKE. WE'RE ALWAYS WORKING WITH THE OTHER AGENCIES SO TRY AND MAKE SURE EVERYTHING GETS DONE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. SO, AS FAR BACK AS 2013, THE CITY INITIATED CONTACT WITH THOSE AGENCIES TO START THE PROCESS OF IMPROVING LOX ROAD. THE CITY APPROVED THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF IMPROVEMENTS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF LOX, THE CITY REACH OUT TO BROWARD COUNTY AND THE BROWARD MPO FOR FUNDING ASSISTANCE. WHILE THIS PROCESS TOOK MANY YEARS, ON MARCH 3RD OF THIS YEAR, SO WE'RE GOING BACK FROM 2013 TO THIS YEAR, WITH THE

[00:50:03]

COMMISSION'S APPROVAL THE CITY EXECUTED THE FUNDING AGREEMENT WITH THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION. THE OVERALL PROJECT WILL COST ROUGHLY $20 MILLION, THE CITY'S PORTION WILL BE ROUGHLY $2 MILLION. THE DIFFERENCE IS THE COST THAT WE HAD TO WAIT FOR THE IT STATE. THE PROJECT'S DESIGN PHASE WILL RESUME THIS SUMMER AND CONSTRUCTION WILL BEGIN IN RATE 2022 OR EARLY '23 SO, AGAIN, THAT'S TALK ABOUT PATIENCE. WE UNDERSTAND LOX IS NOT A GOOD ROAD, SO IF YOU HAVE TO TRAVEL THAT ROAD, PLEASE USE CAUTION BECAUSE WE HAVE ANOTHER YEAR OR YEAR AND-A-HALF BEFORE THIS PROJECT STARTS. AGAIN, IT'S GOING TO TAKE A LOT OF IMPACT, WHETHER YOUR PARK SIDE DRIVE, WHAT HAVE YOU PLEASE DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO BE PATIENT AND UNDERSTAND THAT NO ONE WANTS THIS PROJECT TO BE COMPLETED FASTER THAN CITY STAFF OR THE COMMISSIONERS UP HERE WHO RECEIVE PHONE CALLS AND EMAILS, THERE'S NOTHING WE WOULD LIKE BETTER THAN TO BE ABLE TO SNAP OUR FINGERS TO GET IT DONE. I WANT TO THANK A FEW PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THIS PROJECT, PREVIOUS COMMISSIONS, OR FORMER MAYOR REPRESENTATIVE CHRISTINE, BROWARD COUNTY COMMISSION, BROWARD COUNTY STAFF, MPO STAFF, FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, OUR CURRENT COMMISSION, CITY STAFF, AND THE RESIDENTS FOR THEIR PATIENCE.

ANYONE? COMMISSIONER BRIER? >> JUST ECHOING YOUR COMMENTS, COMMISSIONER, THIS IS ONE OF THE PROJECTS IN THE CITY THAT I WISH AND DREAM FOR EVERYDAY. THIS IS PAN ISSUE ABOUT SAVING LIVES, THAT ROAD HAS BEEN DANGEROUS SINCE MY FAMILY MOVED HERE AND CONTINUES TO BE DANGEROUS. SO I'M EXCITED TO GET THIS BALL ROLLING AND THIS IS JUST ONE STEP IN THE PROCESS, BUT I ECHO THE MAYOR'S COMMENTS THAT IT'S GOING TO BE A PROCESS THAT WE ALL GOT TO BE PATIENT WITH. I KNOW, CITY STAFF IS WORKING THEIR PART TO GET THIS DONE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. BUT TO THE MAYOR'S POINT, SOME OF THIS IS BEYOND OUR CONTROL BUT WE'RE

WORKING HARD TO DO IT. >>> VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN?

>> I SPOKE ABOUT THIS, BUT I JUST WANT TO ECHO SENTIMENTS TO THE COMMISSION AS WELL. ALTHOUGH THIS ITEM HAS NOTHING DO WITH THE DESIGN OF THAT ROUND ABOUT, IS THAT AREA THAT WE CAN LOOK AT THAT MAY HAVE THAT FOUR ACRES CURRENTLY DEDICATED THAT WE'RE NOT DOING ANYTHING WITH. WE MAY WANT TO LOOK AT WHERE SOMEBODY CAN INGRESS AND DEGRESS WITH THIS AREA. THAT MAY HAVE TO BE MOVED WHEN LOX IS COMPLETED FOR IN THE WORKING, JUST SOME OF THOSE THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND AND ANYTHING ELSE WE COULD DO WHILE THE PROJECT IS GOING ON OR THE FUTURE PROJECT OF LOX ROAD TO MAKE THE TWEAKS AS WE SEE FIT.

>> THANK YOU. ANYBODY FROM THE PUBLIC WANT TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM? AND SINCE NO ONE WANTS TO SPEAK. MOTION?

>> MOTION TO APPROVE. >> SECOND.

>> MOTION TO APPROVE BY COMMISSIONER ISROW AND A SECOND

BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER. >> ROLL CALL.

>> COMMISSIONER CUTLER? >> YES.

>> COMMISSIONER ISROW? >> YES.

>> COMMISSIONER BRIER? YES. >> VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN?

>> YES. >> MAYOR WALKER?

>> YES. PLEASE SHOW IT PASSES UMAN MOUSILY.

>> ITEM 9-E. AMENDING ORDINANCE NUMBER 2020 -- 019.

INCREASING THE GENERAL FUND LIE $170,000 PROVIDING FUNDING BY UTILIZING BUILDING DEPARTMENT EXISTING RESERVES, UTILIZING $45,000 OF GENERAL FUND CONTANG GENTSY FUNDING INCREASING THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT FOUND PROVIDING FUNDING BY UTILIZING, EXISTING RESERVES, CONVERTS 5 PART TIME PARK RANGER POSITION TOSS THREE FULL TIME POSITIONS. PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY AND

PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE. >> GOOD EVENING, MAYOR, COMMISSIONERS, I'M CHRIS JOHNSON. AND THIS IS THE FIRST READING MUCH A MAJOR BUDGET. IT IT WILL DOES A WHOLE LOT OF THINGS ROLLED INTO ONE. THE FIRST PART OF THE AMENDMENT IS TO USE $170,000 OF BUILDING DEPARTMENT RESERVES TO OTHER CONTRACTUAL SERVICES AS NEEDED. TAKE CARE OF THE PINE TREE

[00:55:05]

ROADWAY TESTING AND IMPROVEMENT IN VALUATION. THE THIRD PART OF IT IS TO ADD $75,000 BUILDING DEPARTMENT RESERVESES TO ADD TO THE STORM WATER MASTER PLAN PROJECT. NUMBER 4 IS TO CONVERT THOSE 5 FULL TIME PART TIME PARK RANGER POSITIONS INTO THREE FULL TIME PARK RANGESER POSITIONS AND THEN LASTLY, IS USE $300,000 FOR RESERVES FOR THE ROUND ABOUT PROJECT JUST APPROVED. THAT IS THE SUMMARY OF WHAT THIS BUDGET AMENDMENT.

>> THANK YOU, CHRIS. AND AGAIN, MOST OF THIS IS MOVING MONEY FROM YOU KNOW ONE POT TO ANOTHER. SO IT'S NOT INCREASING THE RATE OR SPENDING ADDITIONAL FUNDS, IT'S TAKING MONEY FROM HERE AND PUTTING IT OVER HERE, AND THOSE TYPES OF THINGS.

>> CORRECT. >> SO THAT'S ESSENTIALLY WHAT

THAT DOES. >> VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN?

>> AGAIN, THE ONE IMPORTANT PIECE TO ME, AND AGAIN, MY ONE-ON-ONE WITH NANCY AND SWANDA, I QUESTIONED THE REASON WHY WE'RE TAKING THE PARK RAKE RANGERS AND MAKING SOME OF THEM FULL TIME INSTEAD OF PART TIME. AND MY EXPLANATION IS THROUGH THE PARK PEOPLE THERE'S A LOT OF TURNOVER, THOSE PARK RANGERS ARE VALUABLE TO THE LEAGUES AND OUR RESIDENTS. THEY GET TO KNOW SOME OF THEM PERSONALLY, AND CALL THEM BY FIRST NAME. HAVING SOMEBODY THERE ON A FULL-TIME BASIS BUILDS THAT CONSISTENTLY AND COMRADERY, AND I THINK THAT'S AN IMPORTANT PIECE THAT RESIDENTS NEED TO KNOW. THAT'S WHY THAT SHIFT IS BEING MADE, SO, I WANT TO THANK CHRISTINE FOR NOTICING THAT AND MAKING SURE TO IMPROVE OUR RELATIONSHIPS OUT THERE.

>> A FULL-TIME EMPLOYEE IS MUCH MORE VESTED IN HIS JOB THAN A PART TIME EMPLOYEE. SO, I THOUGHT IT WAS A FANTASTIC MOVE AND I'M GLAD THAT WAS DONE. IT MAKES THE RESIDENTS SAFER, IT MAKES THE RESIDENTS MORE COMFORTABLE. SO I'M VERY HAPPY TO SEE THAT. ANYONE FROM THE PUBLIC THAT WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM? ANYONE? NO.

>> ANYONE FROM THE COMMISSION HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL COMMENTS.

>> MOTION TO APPROVE BY COMMISSIONER BRIER, AND SECOND BY MANY COMMISSIONER I SEE ISROW.

>> COMMISSIONER ISROW? >> YES.

>> COMMISSIONER BRIER? >> YES.

>> COMMISSIONER CUTLER? >> YES. VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN?

>> YES. >> MAYOR WALKER.

>> YES. >> PLEASE SHOW IT PASSES UMAN

MOUSILY. >> ITEM F IS BROWARD CITY LEAGUE APPOINTMENTS. IT'S TIME TO MAKE THOSE APPOINTMENTS.

CURRENTLY WE HAVE VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN AS THE DIRECTOR, FIRST AL ALTERNATE WOULD BE MYSELF AND SECOND WOULD BE COMMISSIONER BRIER.

>> MOTION TO MAINTAIN. >> SECOND.

>> OKAY. SO, ANYONE FROM THE PUBLIC THAT WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK

ON THIS AGENDA ITEM? >> NO. OKAY. SO, I HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER, AND A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER

ISROW. >> ONE THING I WOULD LIKE TO

SAY IS THAT. >> WAIT, YOU ALREADY GOT NOMINATED TO BE THE DIRECTOR. YOU WANT TO TRY AND TALK

YOURSELF OUT OF IT. >> NO, NOT YET. BUT ONE THING I DO WANT TO SAY IS THAT, THE LEAGUE OF CITIES EXCEPT FOR OUR BOARD MEETING, LIKE WE HAVE COFFEE WITH THE PRESIDENT, AND IN FACT, THE NEXT MEETING IS SUPPOSED TO BE ON THE 9TH BUT I THINK IT'S POSTPONED TO THE 17TH. THEY'RE ZOOM, IT'S NOT A MATTER OF GOING DOWN SOMEWHERE, I THINK IT'S VALUABLE, I THINK IF YOU COULD ATTEND TO SEE WHAT THE LEAGUE OF CITIES IS ABOUT TO GET AN UNDERSTANDING. IT'S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO NETWORK WITH OTHERS SIMILAR SOUTHWEST COUNCIL ELECTED OFFICIALS. IT'S A GREAT WAY TO LEARN THINGS GOING ON IN THE COUNTY THAT SPECIFICALLY EFFECT OUR CITY AND OUR RESIDENTS. SO WHEN THE NEXT EVENT COMES OUT, I'LL MAKE SURE IT GOES THROUGH NANCY OR WHATEVER TO INVITE YOU ALL BECAUSE I THINK IT'S WORTH WHILE

TO ATTEND. >> ROLL CALL.

>> COMMISSIONER BRIER? >> YES.

>> COMMISSIONER CUTLER? >> YES. COMMISSIONER ISROW?

>> YES. >> VICE MAYOR IS IT MAYERSOHN?

>> YES. MAYOR WALKER? >> YES.

>> ITEM 9 G DISCUSS AND CONSIDER ACTION REGARDING CITY CLERK'S PERFORMANCE REVIEW CURRENT PERIOD.

>> OKAY. SO, I'LL TALK ON THIS ONE ALSO. SO ALYSON OBVIOUSLY

[01:00:05]

HAS BEEN HERE JUST OVER A YEAR NOW, SO HER YEAR REVIEW WAS OR IS DUE, AND BASED ON THE CONVERSATIONS THAT SHE'S HAD AND WE'VE HAD I WOULD LIKE TO RECOMMEND A 2.75% INCREASE FOR ALYSON WHICH WOULD BE THE AVERAGE OF THE REVIEWS.

>> I WILL SECOND THAT. >> YOU WANT A MOTION OR?

>> IS THAT A MOTION? >> I'LL MAKE A MOTION.

>> I'LL SECOND. >> I'M ONLY RECOMMENDING IT.

>> MAY I ASK A QUESTION, MAYOR, IS THIS THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING IT ANNUALLY BY VOTE OR IS THERE A MECHANICISM IN PLACE FOR THE PERFORMANCE EVALUATION. ARE WE JUMPING TO THE SECOND HALF.

>> WHAT DO YOU MEAN THE SECOND HALF?

>> IS THE PERFORMANCE' VAL WEIGHS.

>> NO, THE PERFORMANCE EVALUATION WAS DONE BY ALL THE

COMMISSIONERS. >> I HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO DO

THAT, I GUESS THAT'S WHY. >> OKAY. OKAY.

>> AND I GUESS TO COMMISSIONER ISROW'S POINT, IF THERE'S A MECHANICISM, I KNOW I HAD MY ONE-ON-ONE WITH ALYSON, I SAT DOWN AND DISCUSSED WITH HER WHAT SHE WAS DOING WELL AND WHAT SHE NEEDED IMPROVEMENT ON AND RECOMMEND REGULAR FEEDBACK. BUT IF IT'S SOMETHING, THAT, AGAIN, SHE'S OUR EMPLOYEE, I GUESS, ONE OF THREE, THAT YOU MAY WANT SOMETHING FEELING MORE TANKIBLE OR MEASURABLE I'M UP FOR THAT AS WELL.

>> EVERYONE IS FREE TO DO AN EVALUATION, HOW THEY SEE FIT, SOME PEOPLE WANT TO JUST DO IT VERBALLY, WHICH IS, YOU'RE ENTITLED TO EVALUATE WHOEVER YOU NEED TO EVALUATE HOWEVER YOU SEE FIT. PERSONALLY, I LIKE TO FILL OUT A FORM, IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, WITH ALYSON, WE JUST DID A VERBAL EVALUATION SO, I DID NOT FILL OUT A FORM THIS TIME, WITH NANCY I DID. SO THIS ONE WAS DIFFERENT. BUT NORMALLY I LIKE TO FILL OUT A FORM AND YOU KNOW, CHECK, ONE, 2, THREE, OR WHATEVER THE FORM WAS THAT YOU GAVE US, I THINK IT WAS LETTERS. BUT AGAIN, THAT'S UP TO YOU.

EVERY COMPANY'S DIFFERENT, SO EVERY PERSON'S DIFFERENT. SO, YOU KNOW, YOU GUYS ARE ALL FREE, IN MY OPINION, IS HOW I SEE IT, SIMILAR TO NANCY, COMMISSIONER BRIER?

>> I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE SOME SORT OF PROCEDURE IN PLACE SIMILAR TO WHAT WE DID WITH THE CITY MANAGER'S OFFICE WHERE WE HAVE SOME SYSTEM IF IT'S DONE BY A COMBINATION OF VERBAL AND WRITTEN EVALUATION FORMS, FINE. MAYBE A REVIEW, LIKE WE TALKED ABOUT FOR THE CITY MANAGER, I THINK WOULD BE HELPFUL. WE HAVE PROBABLY COMMUNICATIONS WITH ALYSON ON A MUCH MORE FREQUENT BASIS, BUT HAVING SOME SORT OF STRUCTURE THAT IS CONSISTENT, I

THINK WOULD BE BENEFICIAL. >> WELL, IT'S ONCE A YEAR, RIGHT. AND THEN IF WE WANT TO DO MID-YEAR ONES, YOU COULD SEND US -- SO IF YOU COULD SEND US, NOW, YOU KNOW ONE-YEAR REVIEW, SO WE KNOW WHEN NEXT YEAR'S IS, AND SEND US SIX-MONTH REVIEWS, IF WE GET INVITATIONS ON OUR CALENDARS, IT WOULD BE UP TO US, WELL YOU NEED TO GET US THE FORMS IN A TIMELY FASHION PRIOR TO THE ONE-ON-ONE'S, AND IT'S UP TO US TO MAKE SURE WE GET THERE AND GET THOSE THINGS DONE. IS THAT GOOD WITH EVERYONE?

COMMISSIONER CUTLER? >> IT'S A COMMENT AND A QUESTION, THE FIRST COMMENT IS I REALLY APPRECIATE WORKING WITH ALYSON, I THINK SHE'S A LOVELY INDIVIDUAL, AND I'M VERY PLEASED WITH HER PERFORMANCE THIS YEAR, BUT I DO UNDERSTAND THAT HER POSITION IS ONE THAT FALLS UNDER OUR CHARTER. AND AS A POSITION THAT FALLS UNDER THE COMMISSION, AND, I KNOW THAT WE'VE ALREADY HAD A CHARTER REVIEW AND THAT'S NOT SCHEDULED FOR ANOTHER FOUR YEARS, BUT, CERTAINLY THAT'S SOMETHING THAT MAYBE WE WANT TO LOOK AT IN TERMS OF WHO FALLS UNDER WHAT POSITION, RELATIVE, I DON'T KNOW WHAT OTHER CITIES DO, ANTHONY, MAYBE YOU KNOW, WHETHER THE CLERK ALWAYS FALLS UNDER THE COMMISSION OR WHETHER THE CLERK FALLS UNDER THE CITY MANAGEMENT IN OTHER SITUATIONS.

>> COMMISSIONER, IT'S MIXED, SOME CITIES HAVE THE CLERK'S OFFICE UNDER THE MANAGER, SOME HAVE THE CLERK'S OFFICE AS A

[01:05:05]

SEPARATE CHARTER OFFICER. >> THE REASON I ASK THAT QUESTION IS I'VE HAD INTERACTIONWISE ALYSON, BUT I'VE ALSO HAD INTERACTIONWISE ALL THE OTHER STAFF MEMBERS AND DIRECTORS OF THE TEAMS, I DON'T KNOW THAT NECESSARILY, I HAVE MANAGEMENT OVER HER RELATIVE WITH HOW SHE DOES OTHER

DAY-TO-DAY FUNCTIONS. >> I THINK WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS SPOT ON, I HAD THAT CONVERSATION WITH NANCY AND ANTHONY BEFORE, SHE DOESN'T WORK FOR US ANY DIFFERENT THAN LISA DOES OR ANTHONY. IN REALITY, SHE FOLLOWS NANCY'S LEAD, BECAUSE NANCY AS THE CITY MANAGER SETS THE AGENDA, AND ALYSON IS JUST FORMULATING THE AGENDA AND PACKAGING THAT UP SO THAT THE RESIDENTS CAN VIEW IT, THEY HAVE THEIR BACKUPS, BUT IN REALITY SHE FALLS MORE IN LINE WITH THE CITY MANAGERS, SO, WHERE YOU'RE HEADED IS VERY SIMILAR CONVERSATIONS WITH WHAT I HAD, BUT OBVIOUSLY HAVING THE CHARTER, YOU KNOW, IT'S TOUGH

FOR US. >> AND WHILE I AGREE WITH YOU AND WITH RELATIVE WITH THIS IDEA THAT I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE MORE STRU STRU STRUCTURE FOR EVALUATION STRUCTURES, LOOK AT THE ANALYSIS OF WHERE THE MANAGEMENT FALLS AND LOOK TO WHO IT MIGHT BE.

>> I COULDN'T AGREE MORE, I THINK THE ONLY THING THE CHARTER WOULD DO IS THE CITY CLERK WITHIN THE COMMISSION'S PURVIEW, OR THAT OF THE MANAGEMENT. IT REALLY WOULDN'T TOUCH IT, WELL IT'S ALSO THE CITY ATTORNEY AND THE CITY MANAGER, BUT IT WOULDN'T ADDRESS AS FAR AS HOW OR COULD IT, I GUESS, HOW WE EVALUATE THOSE PARTICULAR INDIVIDUALS. WHICH WOULD BE, YOU, I DON'T THINK, OBVIOUSLY YOU'RE A CONSULTANT, SO WE WOULDN'T GIVE YOU A REVIEW. SO WE WOULD JUST BE REVIEWING.

>> NO, ALTHOUGH I'M ALWAYS HAPPY TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT MY PERFORMANCE AND HOW I COULD DO BETTER. IT'S NOT TYPICAL IN A CHARTER TO SEE HOW A PARTICULAR EMPLOYEE WAS DOING IN THE

CHARTER. >> I'M NOT SUGGESTING THAT, I'M JUST SUGGESTING THAT WHEN WE LOOK AT THE SCOPE OF THOSE POSITIONS, IN TERMS OF THE CORPORATE STRUCTURE THAT WE HAVE OF OUR GOVERNMENT, MAYBE THAT'S SOMETHING THAT THE PEOPLE DOING

CHARTER REVIEW WANT TO SEE. >> YES, I WANT TO CLARIFY, THE REASON I BRING THIS UP, MAYBE IT WAS A MISCOMMUNICATION ON MY PART, BUT I UNDERSTOOD THAT WE WERE TALKING TODAY ABOUT THE MECHANISM BY WHICH WE WERE GOING TO DO THE PERFORMANCE REVIEW.

FOR ME, I ECHO COMMISSIONER CUTLER, I HAVE A GREAT WORKING RELATIONSHIP TO HER, IF IT WERE UP TO ME, I WOULD GIVE HER THE FULL 3%. I THINK THERE'S VALUE IN THE COMMISSION BEING ABLE TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT IT SIMILAR TO THE WAY WE DO WITH THE CITY MANAGER, BECAUSE IN MEN RESPECTS, MY VISIBILITY INTO HER WORK PERFORMANCE IS A SLIVER OF WHAT SHE ACTUALLY DOES. FOR ME, I WANT TO MAKE SURE I HAVE A MORE ROUNDED VIEW OF IT. I STILL WANT TO HAVE THAT VIS ABILITY AS OPPOSED TO JUST MAKING BASED OFF A SMALL SLICE. THAT'S WHY I'M SAYING THAT, I'M NOT OPPOSED TO VOTING ON A, I GUESS A RAISE, BUT I THINK, EVEN JUST THE STARTING POINT OF WHAT THE MOTION IS SET AT, IS ALREADY SETTING THE TONE AS IF THE PERFORMANCE REVIEW HAS ALREADY BEEN DISCUSSED AMONGST THE COMMISSION.

>> SO, RIGHT, SO EVERY COMMISSIONER HAS THEIR OWN PROCESS OF HOW THEY WANT TO REVIEW. SO, IF YOU WANT TO PUT THIS OFF SO YOU COULD HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY, IT WOULD BE MORE THAT WE WOULD PUT THIS OFF, BECAUSE WE'RE NOT REALLY HAVING A CONVERSATION WITH ALYSON NOW TO TALK ABOUT HER PERFORMANCE, WE'RE MERELY APPROVING OR NOT APPROVING A PARTICULAR AMOUNT.

SO OUR ONLY OPTION WHICH IS YOUR RIGHT WOULD BE TO HOLD THIS OFFER UNTIL YOU'VE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE --

>> WELL IT'S NOT JUST FOR MY VALUE. I KNOW IN MY HEAD WHAT I WOULD EVALUATE HER AS. I'M SAYING A WORKSHOP TO GIVE US SOMETIME TO HAVE A DISCUSSION AS OPPOSED TO ALL OF US DOING SOMETHING AND MAKING A MOTION BASED OFF OF, I GUESS WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, IS THAT'S WHAT THE GENERAL RAISE IS, I GUESS THAT SETS A BASE LINE THAT'S KIND OF IN THE ABSTRACT, NOT

[01:10:02]

BASED ON THE PERFORMANCE. I VOTE YES IN FAVOR OF 2.75 OR

VOTE NO AND SHE GETS NO RAISE. >> NO, WE COULD PUSH IT OFF AND THE RAISE WILL COME AT THE NEXT MEETING.

>> I WOULD LIKE TO HOLD IT OFF TO HAVE THE DISCUSSION.

>> WE DIDN'T HAVE THAT TYPE OF CONVERSATION WITH NANCY, WHERE WE TALKED ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE ABOUT HER PERFORMANCE. ALL WE TALKED ABOUT WITH NANCY WAS HOW WE WERE GOING TO RATE HER AND WE BASICALLY DECIDED THAT WE WERE ALL GOING TO RATE HER INDIVIDUALLY. SHE PROVIDED US WITH A FORM, YOU KNOW TO FILL

OUT, AS A BASELINE. >> RIGHT.

>> SO THAT'S WHAT THE DISCUSSION WAS. WE DID WANT TALK ABOUT WELL, I LIKE THAT NANCY DOES THIS AND I DON'T LIKE

THAT SHE DOES THAT. >> THEY'RE BOTH UNDER THE CHARTER, SO MY QUESTION IS WHY TREAT THEM DIFFERENTLY, I GET THEY'RE DIFFERENT JOBS, BUT WHY NOT TREAT THEM THE SAME.

>> THE DISCUSSION WE HAD WITH NANCY WAS HOW WE WERE GOING TO DO THE EVALUATION. WHICH WAS A FORM WE ENDED UP WITH A FORM THAT SHE PROVIDED AND WE TALKED ABOUT HAVING I KNOW MID-TERM EVALUATIONS. THAT WAS BASICALLY THE CONVERSATION WE HAD. AND WITH ALYSON, TOOK THE LEAD ON THAT, AND SENT YOU KNOW FORMS TO FILL OUT, WE FILLED OUT THOSE FORMS OR IF YOU WANTED TO FILL OUT THOSE FORMS, LIKE IN BOB'S CASE AND MINE AS WELL FOR ALYSON, I DIDN'T PARTICULARLY FILL OUT THIS FORM THIS TIME.

WE HAD A FACE-TO-FACE MEETING AND DISCUSSED THAT EVALUATION.

WHERE, YOU FILLED OUT A FORM, AND THAT'S WHAT WE DID JUST BASED ON WHAT WE DID WITH NANCY. WE'RE TREATING IT EXACTLY THE

SAME AS NANCY. >> IF I COULD MAKE A RECOMMENDATION, WHAT I'M HEARING AND WHAT I BELIEVE IS MISSING, IS POTENTIALLY SETTING UP THE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES FOR HER TO ACHIEVE MOVING FORWARD VERY SIMILAR TO MYSELF. AND AS COMMISSIONER ISROW MENTIONED, HE NEEDS SOME STRUCTURE TO IT. AND IF YOU HAVE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES, THAT'S GOING TO DEFINE ON WHAT SHE NEEDS TO ACHIEVE AND THAT WOULD HELP HER KNOW HER DIRECTION SO THAT WOULD BE MY DIRECTION.

>> THAT'S EXACTLY TO COMMISSIONER CUTLER'S POINT AND TO COMMISSIONER ISROW'S POINT. FOR US TO SET GOALS, WE ONLY HAVE THIS SNIPPET OF WHAT SHE ACTUALLY DOES. IN REALITY, SHE WORKS WITH YOU, 90% OF THE TIME, AND WITH US 10% OF THE TIME. SO WE WOULD BE SETTING GOALS, WHICH I GUESS WE COULD DO, BECAUSE WE COULD DO WHATEVER WE WANT IN THIS CASE, WE WOULD BE SETTING GOALS FOR OURSELVES RATHER THAN WHAT SHE DOES WITH YOU OR THE RESIDENTS ON A DAILY BASIS. I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY, YOU KNOW, CONVERSATIONS SHE HAS WITH RESIDENTS OR HOW MANY TIMES SHE HAS TO SEND OUT RECORDS REQUESTS AND HOW SHE DOES WITH FILLING OUT THE AGENDA. DO YOU HAVE TO TELL HER 20 TIMES TO PUT THIS AND THOSE CONVERSATIONS, WE'RE NOT PRIVY TOO. BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE THAT. BUT THAT'S BECAUSE OF HOW OUR CHARTER IS

WRITTEN. >> RIGHT, BUT THE CHARTER'S WRITTEN THAT WAY MEANS WE HAVE TO DESIGN OUR EVALUATE BASED ON THE CHARTER. WE HAVE THE TASK OF CREATING THE CLARITY AND THE STRUCTURE SO THAT WAY WHEN WE'RE FULFILLING OUR CHART RESPONSIBILITY IS IN THE MANNER OF THE CHARTER.

>> VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN. >> SHE'S UNDER THE CHARTER AS FAR AS BEING UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE COMMISSION AND THE HIRING OF THE COMMISSION. I QUESTION, THERE ARE OBVIOUSLY REASONS FOR IT, BUT I THINK IT'S WORTH WHILE IN THE NEXT CHARTER REVIEW TO HAVE THAT ARE CHARTER COMMITTEE TO TAKE A LOOK AT IT TO SEE IF THAT'S THE DIRECTION WE SHOULD BE GOING TO OR NOT. BUT WITH THAT BEING SAID TO COMMISSIONER I SEE'S POINT IS THAT, NANCY'S CONTRACT WAS FOR EVALUATION AT LEAST, TO ME, WAS VERY WELL DEFINED BECAUSE IT WAS IN HER CONTRACT THAT HER EVALUATION AND MERIT INCREASE WAS BASED UPON AN EVALUATION TOOL PREDOMINANTLY BASED UPON MEETING GOALS AND OBJECTIVES RELATED TO THE STRATEGIC PLAN. ALYSON DOESN'T HAVE THAT TYPE OF CONTRACT, NOR DOES SHE HAVE, AGAIN, WE COULD CREATE THEM AS PART OF A STRATEGIC PLAN AND CREATE GOALS

[01:15:06]

AND OBJECTIVES, IF THAT'S SOMETHING THAT YOU WOULD PREFER.

AND AGAIN, HOW WE EVALUATE IT, ACCORDING TO WHAT THE MAYOR'S SAYING IT UP TO US, VIA FORM OR INDIVIDUALLY, OR HOWEVER WE DECIDE IT TO DO. BUT, I THINK YOU'RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING SUBSTANCETIVE, SAYING, I THINK ALYSON'S DOING A GREAT JOB.

>> I GUESS MY POINT IS, WHEN I SPOKE TO ALYSON ABOUT, I SAID WHEN IS THIS DUE, I GUEST THE POINT OF DISTINCTION I'M TRYING TO MAKE THAT WITH NANCY'S DOCUMENT THAT THE REVIEW IS BASED ON IT HAD A LINE THAT SAID, WHAT IS YOUR PROPOSED PAY INCREASE IF ANY. THE NICE THING ABOUT IN A IS WE PUT US IN THE POSITION TO PUT OUR OPINION ON IT, AND THEN YOU GET THE AVERAGE OF THOSE NUMBERS, NOW YOU'RE NOT TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION OF WHAT THE PERFORMANCE REVIEW IT, I THINK IT'S MORE OBJECTIVE WHERE EACH PERSON GIVES THE PROPOSAL, AVERAGE IT. HOW THE PERFORMANCE SHOULD BE MADE AND HOW THE DECISION WILL BE MADE BASED OFF THE PAY. THOSE ARE TWO SEPARATE ISSUES.

>> SO, I THINK WE NEED HELP, HERE, ANTHONY. SO, I THINK.

>> I HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL, BUT I'LL TRY TO FOLLOW UP ON WHAT THE VICE MAYOR SAID. THEY'RE BOTH CHARTER OFFICERS, NO DOUBT, MEANING THAT YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE SUPPORT ESTABLISHING THEIR PAY AND ANY INCREASES THEY GET. HOWEVER, THEY BOTH HAVE TWO SEPARATE CONTRACTS AND WITHIN THOSE CONTRACTS THEY SAY TWO SEPARATE THINGS WITH RESPECT TO PERFORMANCE EVALUATION, THE MANAGER'S CONTRACT WHICH IS YOUR CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER IS MORE DEFINED WHEN IT COMES TO HOW THE PERFORMANCE REVIEW IS SUPPOSED TO GO AND WHAT'S TO BE ESTABLISHED UP FRONT AND IT'S NOT UNIQUE TO HAVE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT TERMS. IN THE CLERK'S CONTRACT, BASICALLY WHAT IT SAYS IS THERE AFTER, AFTER THE FIRST YEAR THAT THE COMMISSION SHALL ANNUALLY UNDERTAKE TO REVIEW THE CITY CLERK'S PERFORMANCE AND THE CITY COMMISSION SHALL GRANT SUCH SALARY INCREASES AS THE CITY COMMISSION DEEMS APPROPRIATE.

AND THAT'S IT WITH RESPECT TO ANY TYPE OF PERFORMANCE REVIEW, THAT'S ALL THE LANGUAGE THAT YOU'RE GOING TO SEE. TO THE EXTENT THAT THAT HELPS YOU, YOU'RE NOT REQUIRED TO GIVE ANY TYPE OF WRITTEN PERFORMANCE, OR SET UP AN ESTABLISHED PROCESS IN ADVANCE, ALTHOUGH, YOU COULD DO THAT IF YOU SO CHOOSE AND YOU BELIEVE THAT'S THE APPROPRIATE THING TO DO.

>>> IF WE WERE TO ESTABLISH A PROCESS SIMILAR TO NANCY'S CONTRACT, WOULD THAT HAVE TO BE ESTABLISHED IN ALYSON'S CONTRACT AS WELL, AND SHE WOULD HAVE TO AGREE TO THOSE TERMS, OR IS THAT

SOMETHING THAT... >> WELL, YOU MAY WANT TO GET HER INPUT, IT SAYS YOU SHALL ANNUALLY UNDERTAKE THE CITY CLERK'S REVIEW. YOU DETERMINE TO GIVE HER AN INCREASE AND WHAT

THAT INCREASE SHOULD BE. >> I DON'T KNOW HOW IT WAS DONE IN THE PAST, WHILE ALYSON IS NEW TO THE POSITION, THE POSITION ITSELF IS NOT NEW. THE POSITION HAS BEEN AS A CHARTER POSITION IN THAT PERIOD OF TIME. I WOULD FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH ESTABLISHING A PROTOCOL FOR AN ANNUAL REVIEW AND WE COULD DO A MID YEAR AS WELL GETTING INPUT FROM THE COMMISSIONERS AND GETTING INPUT FROM THE CITY MANAGER ON THE OTHER AREAS OF PERFORMANCE THAT WE DON'T SEE ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS, RIGHT, THAT WE AS A COMMISSION ARE NOT PART OF ON A DAY TO DAY AND USE THAT AS PART OF YOUR PROCESSION OF CREATING OUR OWN INDEPENDENT

EVALUATION OF THE CITY CLERK. >> AGAIN, THAT'S WHY I SAID, THE PROCESS IS UP TO EACH INDIVIDUAL. I HAD THOSE CONVERSATIONS WITH NANCY, EARLIER, AFTER, IN DISCUSSIONS WITH ALYSON. BECAUSE I KNOW, I ONLY KNOW WHAT I KNOW. SO, YOU

KNOW? >> CORRECT.

>> >> SO, IF THAT'S IMPORTANT, YOU KNOW, WHEN WE DO THE EVALUATION, THAT'S HOW WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE DO THAT EVALUATION WE NEED TO MAKE SURE, WHATEVER CONCERNS US TO COME TO A CONCLUSION, WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE'RE DOING THAT.

[01:20:03]

IT'S UP TO US. ALYSON IS TECHNICALLY OUR EMPLOYEE, SO AS OUR EMPLOYEES, AS THE MANAGER, IT'S UP TO ME TO FIND OUT ALL THE INFORMATION I CAN SO THAT I CAN EVALUATE MY PARTICULAR EMPLOYEE. HOW I DO THAT COULD BE DIFFERENT THAN HOW COMMISSIONER CUTLER DOES IT OR COMMISSIONER I SEE, COMMISSIONER BRIER, SO, WE GOT WRITTEN FORMS, HOW YOU WANT TO USE THAT WRITTEN FORM IS UP TO YOU. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO USE IT LIKE VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN DOESN'T WANT TO USE IT, THAT'S TOTALLY FINE.

THERE'S NO RIGHT OR WRONG WAY OF EVALUATING SOMEONE. BECAUSE EVERYBODY VALUES SOMETHING DIFFERENTLY. SOMEBODY MAY THINK PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN ORGANIZATION OR VICE VERSA, SO, I THINK FOR NOW, WHAT I WOULD LIKE DO IS WE CAN TALK ABOUT THIS AT STRATEGIC PLANNING. CAN WE ADD THAT TO OUR STRATEGIC PLANNING DISCUSSION TO TALK MORE ABOUT IT THERE AND GIVES US TIME TO THINK ABOUT EXACTLY WHAT WE WANT TO DO. AND AT THIS TIME, I'M STILL GOING TO GO AHEAD AND RECOMMEND

THE 2.75. >> IT'S BEEN AWHILE.

>> WE HAD A MOTION, I DON'T KNOW IF WE HAD A SECOND.

>> IF YOU WANT TO MOTION, WHICH IS YOUR PREROGATIVE, JORDAN,

>> I WOULD MAKE A MOTION TO RAISE IT TO 3%. THAT WOULD BE MY MOTION. BASED OFF MY EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH ALYSON.

>> THE NUMBER THAT I CAME UP WITH WAS...

>> I HAVE A QUESTION. FROM AM PROCEDURAL STAND POINT, WE HAVE A TIME CONSTRAINT BY CHARTER BECAUSE WE HAVE AN ANNUAL REVIEW, ARE THERE ANY TIME DEADLINES THAT WE NEED TO BE

CONCERNED WITH? >> I DON'T KNOW IF EACH ONE OF YOU HAVE TALKED TO THE CITY CLERK ABOUT IT, BUT TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU'VE DONE THAT THAT'S PROBABLY ENOUGH TO SATISFY THE REVIEW PART AND IT'S WITHIN YOUR DISCRETION AS TO WHETHER TO GIVE HER COMPENSATION. SO LONG AS YOU'VE DONE SOME FORM OF REVIEW, IT CHECKS THE BOX IN THE CONTRACT, THERE'S NO TIME FRAME NECESSARILY SET FORTH THAT YOU HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION BY A CERTAIN DATE. I DON'T WANT TO SPEAK FOR HER, AND MAYBE SHE'S HERE, IT'S A LITTLE AWKWARD, I'M SURE FOR HER, I SUSPECT IF YOU SAY, HEY, WE NEED TWO MORE WEEKS IN MAKING A DECISION, VERSUS NOT GETTING AN INCREASE, OR WAITING TWO WEEKS AND GETTING THE INCREASE, I'M SURE SHE WOULD

WAIT THE TWO WEEKS. >> IF THERE'S NO TIME CONSTRAINT, THAT'S THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.

>> IT WOULD BE RETROACTIVE ANYWAY, SO THAT WOULD BE FINE.

>> OKAY. SO, WE WANT A MOTION TO POSTPONE ITEM.

>> WELL, WE HAVE TO REDO THE AGENDA.

>> DID WE HAVE THE MOTION FROM YOU?

>> WELL, HE MADE A MOTION. >> I BELIEVE THAT THE MOTION.

>> I ACTUALLY MADE A MOTION. >> SO, THERE WAS A MOTION MADE, SO WE WOULD HAVE TO WITH DRAW THAT MOTION OR VOTE ON IT.

>> OKAY. HE HAD ASKED ME TO MAKE A MOTION, SO IF THAT ONE

STILL STANDS, YES. >> I'LL WITH DRAW THE MOTION.

>> I SECOND THE WITHDRAWAL. >> WE COULD STILL HAVE A CONVERSATION IN STRATEGIC PLANNING ON HOW THE STRUCTURE IS DONE, BUT IF WE'RE GOING TO MAKE A MOTION NOW, IS THE POINT THAT WE'RE TAKING IT OFF THE TABLE OR THAT WE'RE MAKING A DECISION

TODAY? >> SOMEBODY WANTS TO SECOND.

I'LL SECOND HIS MOTION FOR THE POINT OF DISCUSSION TO DISCUSS

THE 3% OR FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO. >> MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT JORDAN'S ISSUE WAS WITH NOT GOING THROUGH THE EVALUATION PROCESS AND GIVING MORE TIME TO ALLOW THAT PROCESS SO THAT HE COULD THEN PROVIDE HIS EVALUATION AND THANKSGIVING FACTOR INCLUDING THE INCREASE PROPOSAL WOULD BE FACTORED INTO A COMBINATION OF FOUR OTHER INCREASE PROPOSALS WHICH WOULD

THEN COME UP WITH AN AVERAGE. >> THERE'S THE PERFORMANCE REVIEW SAYING HERE'S WHAT I LIKE WHAT YOU'RE DOING, HERE'S WHAT I

[01:25:01]

THINK YOU COULD DO BETTER. >> I DID NOT PERSONALLY ON MY OWN COME UP WITH 2.75%. I'M JUST LETTING YOU KNOW.

>> THAT'S EVEN MORE REASON WHY, IF WE'RE JUST THROWING OUT ARBITRARY NUMBERS, I WOULD THINK WE WOULD HAVE TO HAVE

JUSTIFICATION. >> I SECOND JORDAN'S.

>> I'M CONFUSED BEFORE WE TAKE A ROLL CALL, I WITHDREW MY MOTION SOLELY BECAUSE I THOUGHT WHAT COMMISSIONER WAS TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH IS TO GIVE IN ADDITIONAL TIME TO ALLOW HIM TO COMPLETE HIS EVALUATION PROCESS. IF THAT'S NOT THE CASE, I DON'T

WANT TO WITHDRAW MY MOTION. >> WHAT I WAS SAYING IS, I BASICALLY, WAS HERE'S MY POSITION, THE MAYOR MAKE AS MOTION OR SOMEONE MAKE AS MOTION TO GIVE A PAY INCREASE AT 2.75%.

THAT'S WHAT WAS ON THE TABLE AND IT WAS SECONDED. MY OPTION IS EITHER TO VOTE YES IN FAVOR OF THAT, RECOGNIZING THAT I PERSONALLY WOULD GIVE THE FULL 3% OR NO, AND THEN I'M VOTING

NOT TO GIVE HER A RAISE AT ALL. >> MY UNDERSTANDING OF THAT 2.75 IS AN AVERAGE OF THE FOUR OTHER SCORES, IF YOU HAVEN'T PUT

THE SCORE? >> IS THAT THE CASE?

>> WELL. >> THAT'S WHY I SAID, I DID NOT COME UP WITH THAT FIGURE ON MY OWN.

>> CORRECT ME IF I MISHEARD, YOU SAID THERE WAS SOMETHING ABOUT THE AVERAGE COST OF LIVING INCREASE. YOU SAID IN THE

BEGINNING. >> THE QUOTA THAT THE CITY EMPLOYEES GET IS SEPARATE TO PERFORMANCE, THIS IS STRICTLY PERFORMANCE, THE COLA GET ARE THE SAME.

>> OKAY. I WAS NOT INFORMED THAT THERE THIS BEEN A

CALCULATION. OKAY. >> SO, IF THERE'S ALREADY BEEN

A CALCULATION... >> ARE YOU GOING TO AVERAGE THE

FOUR SCORES OR THE FIVE SCORES. >> I THINK THERE'S A MOTION AND A SECOND, AND I THOUGHT I HEARD THE MAYOR CALL THE VOTE, ALTHOUGH, I THINK HE WAS PULLING IT BACK.

>> LE WITH, I WAS ONLY CALLING BACK TO GIVE SIMMION WITHDREW HIS MOTION, I JUST WANTED TO DO WHAT WAS RIGHT. IF HE DIDN'T WANT TO WITHDRAW HIS MOTION BASED ON WHAT COMMISSIONER ISROW

WANTED. >> BASED OFF THIS, LET'S GO TO THE STRATEGIC PLANNING AND HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED, BECAUSE THIS IS THE FIRST I'M LEARNING OF IT WHILE

WE'RE SITTING HERE VOTING. >> SO, ARE YOU WITHDRAWING

YOUR'S? >> YES.

>> HERE'S WHAT SEEMS TO BE THE CONFUSION. LET'S MAKE A MOTION TO TABLE THIS DISCUSSION TO THE NEXT MEETING. WE HAVE STRATEGIC PLANNING IN BETWEEN THIS, WE CAN COME UP WITH HAVING SOME FURTHER

DISCUSSION. >> IS THAT YOUR MOTION?

>> THAT'S MY MOTION. >> SECOND.

>> ROLL CALL. >> COMMISSIONER CUTLER?

>> YES. COMMISSIONER ISROW? >> YES.

>> COMMISSIONER BRIER? >> YES.

>> VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN? >> YES.

>> MAYOR WALKER? >> YES. PLEASE SHOW PASSES

UMAN MOUSILY. COMMENTS BY THE BROWARD SHERIFF'S OFFICE?

>> I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING ABOUT THE NEW, LIKE,

>> TWO OF THE AUTO THEFTS WERE THE NORMAL TYPE OF AUTO THEFTS WE'RE USED TO DEAL WITH, I DID WANT TO MENTION TWO THINGS TO BE MINDFUL MUCH, THE THIRD AUTO THEFT THAT WE WAS A JEEP GLADIATOR BUT THIS VEHICLE WAS PRIMARILY TARGETED BECAUSE IT HAS A HELL CAT ENGINE, IT'S A HIGHER ENENGINE. WE KNOW THERE'S AN ORGANIZED GROUP GOING AROUND SPECIFICALLY TARGETING THOSE VEHICLES. THEY DO INVOLVE BREAKING INTO THE VEHICLES AND GETTING THE VEHICLES FAR ENOUGH AWAY FROM THE RESIDENTS TO WORK ON THEM, THEY USE SOME SO THE OF A COMPUTER DEVICE TO CLONE A KEY. AS A RESIDENTS, IF YOU HAVE CARS, THINK OF A WAY TO

[01:30:04]

SECURE YOUR KEY FOB. IT'S A TREND THAT WE'RE SEEING THROUGHOUT THE TRI-COUNTY AREA. ANOTHER TREND I WANTED TO MENTION IN REGARDS TO CAR BURGLARIES THAT WE'VE HAD. BE MINDFUL OF WHERE YOU'RE AT IN OUR SITUATIONAL AWARENESS.

THERE'S A GROUP RIGHT NOW OUT THERE SPECIFICALLY TARGETING BANK OF AMERICA CUSTOMERS. THEY'RE WATCHING YOU GO UP TO THE ATM OR INSIDE THE BANK, MAKE A WITHDRAW. REACHING INTO THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT OR SOMEWHERE INSIDE THE SEAT. WHEN THEY GO INSIDE TO WHERE EVER THEY'RE GOING INTO, THEY COME BACK, THE VEHICLE'S BEEN BROKEN INTO AND THE MONEY'S GONE. THE AMOUNTS RANGE FROM WHATEVER, IT'S JUST A MATTER OF YOUR THE VICTIM BECAUSE THEY WITNESS YOU TAKING MONEY OUT AND FOLLOW YOU TO YOUR NEXT LOCATION. ONE OF THE THINGS I WOULD SUGGEST IS BE MINDFUL OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS, IF YOU SEE VEHICLES FOLLOWING YOU TO ANOTHER LOCATION, MAKE SURE NOT TO LEAVE MONEY IN YOUR VEHICLE. IT'S NOT THE MOST SECURE PLACE, I DON'T KNOW IF CARRYING IT ON YOU, LARGE AMOUNTS OF CASH ARE NECESSARILY GREAT IDEAS HERE, BUT IF YOU HAVE TO, DON'T DO SOMETHING THAT TIPS OFF SOMEBODY THAT'S WATCHING YOU. IN KEEPING WITH THOSE THINGS, WHAT I WANTED TO BRING TO YOU GUYS TONIGHT IS YOU'LL SEE THESE SIGNS POPPING UP THROUGHOUT THE CITY IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS. THIS SIGN WE STOLE FROM CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE, I CONTACTED THEIR UNIT WHO NOTICED THESE SIGNS WERE PUTTING UP IN SECTIONS OF THE AREA WHERE HIGHER VALUED VEHICLES WERE TAKEN. THEY WERE NOTICING A DECREASE IN THE NUMBER OF HIGH END AUTO THEFTS OCCURRING IN THIS AREA. THEY REACHED OUT AND SAID THIS IS SOMETHING YOU MIGHT WANT TO CAN GO DOING, WE GOT THIS SIGNS IN, WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET WITH THE HOA PRESIDENTS LAST NIGHT, THEY WERE ALL RECR. YOU SEE THOSE IN SOME OF THE PARKS AS WE MOVE FORWARD. WE ORDERED ABOUT 100 SIGNS, WE ARE MINDFUL OF THE AESTHETICS OF THE COMMUNITY, WE'LL BE CAREFUL ABOUT HOW WE PUT THEM OUT BUT WE DO WANT TO TRY AND FIND A WAY TO REBRAND AND REEDUCATE OUR FOLKS ON WHAT THEY COULD DO TO KEEP THE COMMUNITY SAFER.

>> GREAT IDEA, AS LONG AS IT'S NOT LIKE THE ELECTION.

>> AND AGAIN, COORDINATING THROUGH NANCY OR TOD, REACHING OUT TO SOME OF THE BUSINESSES. THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT MAY FREQUENT THOSE PLACES SO IT MIGHT BE SOMETHING THAT A BUSINESS MAYBE WILL TO GO PUT IN PLACE.

>> THAT'S A GREAT IDEA. >> FOR SURE.

>> ANYONE ELSE? >> THANK YOU.

>> COMMENTS BY THE CORAL SPRINGS PARKLAND FIRE

DEPARTMENT. >> GOOD EVENING, I GOT YOUR BACK TOO. AN OSHA THING, IT'S NOT A FIRE-FIGHTER THING, IT'S AN OSHA THING. IN THE CITY OF PARKLAND LAST MONTH, WE HAD 2 ONE AND 2 TOTAL INCIDENT, ONE 41 OF THEM WERE FIRED EMS, 139 EMS AND FIRE CALLS. WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR COMING TO THE FIRE OPES, SORRY I COULDN'T JOIN YOU, BUT I'M GLAD TO HEAR YOU HAD A GOOD TIME. YESTERDAY OUR VACCINATION SITE DELIVERED IT'S 45,000TH SHOT TO THE COMMUNITY WHICH ENCOMPASSES MANY PEOPLE IN THE CITY OF PARKLAND. AS THE VACCINATION IS BECOMING MORE AVAILABLE, WE DON'T HAVE A DATE YET AS TO WHEN THAT SITE MAY WIND DOWN BUT IT'S ON THE HORIZON. CONTRARY TO THAT, NOW THAT THE AGE IS 18 AND ABOVE, THAT SITE IS ALREADY OVERWHELMED AND THEY'RE READY. IT'S GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING TASK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE VACCINE IS AVAILABLE AND YET NOT CLOSING DOWN THE SITE BECAUSE MORE PEOPLE ARE NOW ELIGIBLE TO GET IT. AND OTHER THAN THAT, JUST BECAUSE I'M A HISTORY NERD, TODAY IS MARJORIE STONEMAN DOUGLAS' BIRTHDAY. I

[01:35:01]

THINK IT'S INTERESTING HOW ONE PERSON CAN MAKE SUCH A BIG

DIFFERENCE IN THE COMMUNITY. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

COMMENTS BY THE CITY MANAGER. NONE OUT LOUD.

>> COMMENTS BY THE CITY ATTORNEY?

>> NO COMMENTS TONIGHT. SORRY, MAYOR.

>> MOTION TO ADJOURN. >> MOTION TO ADJOURN. SECOND.

>> OKAY. MEETING
