GOING ONCE, GOING TWICE.

SO WITH THAT, I'M CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC AND OPENING TO THE COMMISSION.

AND I WILL BEGIN WITH COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MAYOR.

IN EARLY JANUARY OF 2018, WHILE I WAS DOING SOME RESEARCH ON PARKLAND HISTORY, I CAME ACROSS A WEBSITE THAT DOCUMENTS THE LABORS OF A GENTLEMAN BY THE NAME OF MONROE NATHAN WORK ITS INTRODUCTION STATES IN PART.

ON THESE PAGES, YOU WILL MEET MONROE NATHAN WORK WHO LIVED FROM 1866 TO 1945.

THIS WEBSITE IS A REBIRTH OF ONE PIECE OF HIS WORK.

ALTHOUGH HE DID MANY GREAT THINGS IN HIS CAREER, HE FELT COMPELLED TO DOCUMENT EVERY KNOWN LYNCHING THAT WAS HAPPENING IN THE UNITED STATES.

YOU MIGHT ALREADY BE MORE FAMILIAR WITH WHAT LYNCHING IS IN THIS WEBSITE.

WE'LL EXAMINE IT. MORE, OF COURSE, STARTS WITH AN ACT OF INJUSTICE BY SENTENCING SOMEONE OUTSIDE THE LAW WITH NO PROCESS OR TRIAL.

EVEN WORSE, AT THE TIME OF THE CENTURY, THE METHODS OF LYNCHING HAD BECOME COMMONPLACE, FUELED BY HATRED AND UNSPEAKABLE CRUELTY.

IT WAS MR. WORK'S METICULOUS RECORD KEEPING THAT PRESERVES THE NAMES THAT ARE NOW AN IMPORTANT PART OF OUR HISTORY.

THE WEBSITE ALSO INCLUDED LESSON PLANS, INFORMATION THAT I WAS COMPELLED TO SHARE WITH SEVERAL OF MY TEACHER FRIENDS AT MSD HIGH SCHOOL.

FURTHER RESEARCH LED ME TO A WEBSITE FOR THE EQUAL JUSTICE INITIATIVE AND THEIR NATIONAL MEMORIAL FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE.

THERE I WAS ASTONISHED TO LEARN THAT A MAN BY THE NAME OF RUBIN STACY WAS LYNCHED RIGHT HERE IN BROWARD COUNTY IN 1935.

I WAS BORN AND RAISED HERE.

THIS WAS NEVER PART OF THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTY THAT WAS SHARED WITH US GROWING UP, MAYBE BECAUSE I'M WHITE, MAYBE BECAUSE ADULTS THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE TOO SENSITIVE AN ISSUE FOR YOUNG MINDS. FEBRUARY 14TH CAME ALONG IN THE HARDSHIPS OF THAT TIME, TOOK ME AWAY FROM THIS RESEARCH, BUT LEARNING OF THIS, I WAS COMPELLED TO FIND OUT MORE AND DETERMINED THAT RUBIN STACY WAS THIRTY SEVEN YEARS OLD AND A FARMER WHEN HE KNOCKED ON MARIAN JONES, A WHITE WOMAN DOOR TO ASK FOR A DRINK OF WATER.

BUT ACCORDING TO HER, HE THEN TRIED TO ASSAULT HER WITH A PEN KNIFE AND RAN OFF.

STACY WAS PICKED UP THREE DAYS LATER UNDER SUSPECT CIRCUMSTANCES AND WAS ARRESTED AFTER JONES IDENTIFIED HIM AS HER ATTACKER, HE VEHEMENTLY DENIED IT.

SHE WAS PAID TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS FOR IDENTIFYING HIM AS WERE THE DEPUTIES THAT ESCORTED HIM TO HER HOME FOR THAT IDENTIFICATION.

THE STORY GOES ON THAT AS HE WAS BEING LED TO JAIL BY SIX DEPUTIES, A MOB OF ABOUT A HUNDRED PEOPLE OVERPOWERED THEM, RAMMED THEIR CAR OFF THE ROAD AND LYNCHED HIM IN THE SIGHT OF MIRIAN'S HOUSE IN FORT LAUDERDALE USING THE CLOTHESLINE FROM HER YARD.

HE WAS THEN SHOT 17 TIMES WHILE HE HUNG FROM A TREE WITH HIS HANDS IN HANDCUFFED.

RUBIN NEVER HAD A CHANCE, NO OPPORTUNITY TO DEFEND HIMSELF IN COURT, NEVER RECEIVED A FAIR TRIAL, NEVER RECEIVED JUSTICE.

THE GRAND JURY WAS CONVENED THE NEXT DAY AND ONE DAY OF INVESTIGATION FOUND THEMSELVES

[00:05:01]

UNABLE TO INDICT ANYONE BECAUSE NOTWITHSTANDING HOW SMALL THE COMMUNITY WAS AT THAT TIME, NONE OF THOSE HUNDRED PEOPLE THAT WERE INVOLVED IN THE LYNCHING AND SHOOTING WERE IDENTIFIED. I SPENT HOURS, MANY HOURS RESEARCHING THIS MATTER OVER THE NEXT YEAR.

ON FRIDAY, JULY THE 17TH OF THIS YEAR, I PRESENTED THE HISTORY OF WHAT HAPPENED TO MR. STACY BEFORE THE BROWARD COUNTY COMMISSION BASED UPON MY RESEARCH AT THAT TIME, BROWARD COUNTY MAYOR DALE HOLNESS READ A PROCLAMATION INTO THE RECORD THAT HE READ AGAIN ON JULY 19TH AT THE NAACP OFFICES IN FORT LAUDERDALE IN THE PRESENCE OF MR. STACY'S FAMILY. DECLARING THAT DAY, THE ANNIVERSARY DATE OF THE LYNCHING TO BE RUBIN STACY REMEMBRANCE DAY IN BROWARD COUNTY.

YESTERDAY, THE SUN SENTINEL PUBLISHED AN ARTICLE ABOUT THE LYNCHING OF MR. STACY. IN IT, THE AUTHOR, SUSANNA BRYANT, POINTS OUT THAT STACY WAS ONE OF FOUR THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND FORTY THREE PEOPLE LYNCHED IN THIS COUNTRY BETWEEN 1882 AND 1968, AND ONE OF MORE THAN TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY PEOPLE LYNCHED IN FLORIDA DURING THAT SAME TIME.

HE DIED AT THIRTY SEVEN.

AND HE LEFT BEHIND A WIFE AND A TODDLER SON.

I'M CURRENTLY WORKING WITH MR. HOLNESS, COMMISSIONER BEN SORENSON FROM FORT LAUDERDALE AND STATE REPRESENTATIVE BOBBY DUBOSE THEIR STAFF MEMBERS AND MANY DEDICATED MEMBERS OF THE COALITION.

OF VERY FINE MEMBERS OF THIS COMMUNITY ON A PROJECT TO RENAME IN HONOURARY AND PERHAPS DAVEY BOULEVARD AS RUBIN STACY BOULEVARD AND TO RAISE A MEMORIAL PLAQUE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE EQUAL JUSTICE INITIATIVE.

OLD DAVEY BOULEVARD IN FORT LAUDERDALE IS WHERE MARION JONES LIVED IN 1935.

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT TIME TO RECOGNIZE THE SOCIAL WRONGS THAT HAVE BEEN COMMITTED IN THE PAST AS IT IS A CHANCE TO OPEN A DIALOG THAT WILL LEAD TO A BETTER FUTURE.

IN THE ARTICLE WRITTEN IN THE SUN SENTINEL, COMMISSIONER SORENSON ASKED, WHY DID THIS HAPPEN AND WHAT CAN WE DO TO ADDRESS SYSTEMIC RACISM THAT STILL EXISTS IN OUR SOCIETY TODAY? WE NEED TO HAVE THOSE DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS.

I AM ASKING THAT WE AS A CITY SHOW OUR SUPPORT FOR THIS PROJECT.

I WOULD ASK THAT BY RESOLUTION WE DRAFT THE DOCUMENT DEMONSTRATING THAT AS A CITY WE TO AVOID THE INJUSTICES OF RACISM AND SUPPORT THE ROAD RENAMING PERHAPS WITH THE AGREEMENT OF THIS COMMISSION AND COMMISSIONS OF ALL CITIES WITHIN THIS PARTICULAR COUNTY WE CAN DIRECT OUR STAFF TO PREPARE IT AND TO USE IT TO ENLIST BOTH THE COUNTY AND THE STATE TO DO THE SAME AS WE WORK TOWARDS A BETTER TOMORROW.

I THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE THIS VERY DEEP AND INSIGHTFUL MESSAGE FROM JUSTIN MICHAEL WILLIAMS, WHO SAYS IN HIS BLOG ENTITLED ENDING RACISM HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD IN ONE GENERATION. BEFORE WE CAN BEGIN TO LOOK AT HOW TO END RACISM, BOTH SYSTEMIC AND INTERNALIZED, I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE UNDERSTAND WHAT MAKES RACISM PERSIST.

PERHAPS ONCE YOU'VE BEEN STUCK IN A CONDITION, ONCE YOU'VE BEEN WORKING ON THE SAME RECURRING PROBLEM OVER AND OVER TO NO END, IT BECOMES IMPORTANT TO SHIFT THE QUESTION FROM WHAT IS THE PROBLEM TO WHY DOES THE PROBLEM CONTINUE TO PERSIST IN THE FIRST PLACE? LET'S OPEN A DIALOG ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY AS LEADERS, BOTH LOCALLY AND THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, TO ASK THIS QUESTION AND PERHAPS ONCE AND FOR ALL ARRIVE AT AN ANSWER THAT WILL HELP US TO MOVE ON AND END RACISM ONCE AND FOR ALL.

LET'S START HERE AND WELCOME YOU GUYS TO JOIN.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

COMMISSIONER KAGAN. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, CAN I? I REALLY FELT YOUR WORDS AND THEY WERE VERY MEANINGFUL AND I APPRECIATE YOU SHARING THAT.

I WANT TO SAY IT'S NICE TO SEE EVERYBODY, THOSE OF YOU WITH MASKS ON AND THOSE OF YOU WITHOUT AND I HOPE EVERYBODY IS DOING WELL AND HAD A VERY GOOD START TO A VERY INTERESTING SCHOOL YEAR, BOTH FOR OUR LITTLE ONES AND OUR BIG ONES.

I'M NOT GOING TO GO INTO A LOT OF DETAIL TONIGHT, BUT I WOULD LIKE THE HELP OF THE COMMISSION AND THE MAYOR TO TABLE AN ITEM, ITEM 9E FOR OUR NEXT MEETING NEXT WEDNESDAY.

AND I KNOW I NEED A SECOND ON THAT.

AND I'M WAITING FOR SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ON THAT ITEM.

THANK YOU, KEN. WE'RE GOING TO DO THAT WHEN WE GET TO THE ITEM WHERE WE'RE DOING THE APPROVAL OF THE AGENDA.

THAT'S ALL MY COMMENTS, AND I WISH EVERYBODY WELL, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER WALKER.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. NICE TO SEE EVERYBODY.

STACY, BOB, MAYOR, KEN, NICE WORDS THERE.

[00:10:05]

I WANTED TO SAY I'M GLAD TO SEE BROWARD COUNTY MOVING TO PHASE TWO.

IT'S IT'S NICE TO SEE THAT WE'RE STARTING TO MAKE PROGRESS.

THE NUMBERS ARE HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

I WANT TO APPLAUD PARKLAND.

EVERYBODY HAS BEEN DOING WHETHER IT'S THE RESIDENTS OR BUSINESSES.

WE'VE BEEN WEARING MASKS.

WE'VE BEEN PHYSICALLY DISTANCING.

FLAG FOOTBALL JUST STARTED.

THEY CAME UP WITH GREAT PROTOCOLS.

COACHES HAVE TO WEAR MASKS.

THEY'RE ASKING THE FANS TO WEAR MASKS.

SO I WAS GLAD TO SEE THAT THE BOARD FOR FLAG FOOTBALL TOOK THE INITIATIVE THERE.

AND THINGS SEEM TO BE WORKING OUT VERY WELL.

I WANT TO ALSO SAY, WE HAD THAT 9/11 CEREMONY, I WAS HONORED TO BE A PART OF THAT, IT WAS WELL DONE. THANK YOU, TODD.

CITY STAFF AND TO TOUCH A LITTLE BIT ON SCHOOLS WITH WHAT COMMISSIONER KAGAN SAID EARLIER, I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT WEEK'S SCHOOL BOARD MEETING.

OUR NUMBERS ARE GETTING LOWER.

THE TEACHERS ARE DOING A FANTASTIC JOB.

THE ADMINISTRATORS ARE DOING A FANTASTIC JOB.

THE PARENTS ARE DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN.

BUT I KNOW SOME OF THE KIDS ARE CERTAINLY STRUGGLING.

IT'S TOUGH TO STAY FOCUSED AND KEEP YOUR ATTENTION FOR SIX, EIGHT HOURS, WHATEVER.

SO I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO THE POTENTIAL, SOME SORT OF FACE TO FACE.

HOPEFULLY, BROWARD COUNTY COMES UP WITH A GOOD PLAN THAT WILL KEEP THE TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS AND STUDENTS SAFE, BUT WILL ULTIMATELY START TO GET THEM BACK IN THE CLASSROOM. I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE WE DEFINITELY NEED, WHETHER IT'S A HYBRID, WHATEVER. I'M REALLY INTERESTED TO HEAR WHAT WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY.

AND THAT'S ALL MY COMMENT FOR TONIGHT.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN.

GOOD EVENING, MAYOR, COMMISSION, THANK YOU, GUYS, IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU VIRTUALLY PERSON.

DO WANT TO THANK STAFF FOR PUTTING ON A BEAUTIFUL 9/11 COMMEMORATIVE EVENT, I HAVE TO SAY IT WAS PERSONAL TO ME BECAUSE MY COUSIN WORKED IN THE PORT AUTHORITY POLICE DURING THAT TIME AND HE SAID HE TOLD ME ARE JUST SO IMPACTFUL.

MAYOR, YOUR WORDS WERE VERY BEAUTIFUL AND VERY INSPIRING.

SO I THANK YOU FOR THAT.

I JUST WANT TO REMIND EVERYBODY TO FILL OUT THE 2020 CENSUS.

WE ARE AT IT AS OF LAST NIGHT WE'RE AT SEVENTY EIGHT POINT TWO PERCENT, WHICH WAS TENTH IN THE STATE AND THIRD IN THE COUNTY.

NANCY, I THINK WE JUST NEED TO DO A COUPLE OF FINAL PUSHES, MAYBE OUT TO SOME OF, AGAIN, THE HOA PRESIDENTS, ABLE TO HIT PINE TREE IN THE RANCH'S AS WELL TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ALL FILL OUR CENSUS BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT TO LOSE OR LEAVE MONEY ON THE TABLE.

SO I'M HOPING WE CAN DO THAT, THE CARES ACT FUNDING IS BE VERY IMPACTFUL TO OUR CITY AS WELL. I TESTIFIED TO THE COUNTY COMMISSION MEETING ASKING THEM TO PROVIDE THERE A FAIR, PROPORTIONATE SHARE OF THE THREE HUNDRED AND FORTY ONE MILLION DOLLARS AMOUNTED TO ABOUT ONE HUNDRED AND ONE OR TWO MILLION.

I THINK WE'RE GETTING AT THIS POINT, ONE POINT FIVE MILLION.

WE'RE STILL WAITING, I BELIEVE, ON THE INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT.

AND THERE ARE A LOT OF NUANCES, RESTRICTIONS AND THINGS THAT WE HAVE TO ADHERE TO.

SO IT'S NOT AS MUCH AS JUST GIVING AWAY MONEY.

THERE IS GOING TO BE SOME TEETH INTO, OBVIOUSLY, WHO'S GOING TO BE ABLE TO RECEIVE MONEY AND WHAT THE REQUIREMENTS ARE.

AND I KNOW NANCY, I'VE BEEN WORKING VERY HARD AND TRYING TO WORK OUT.

SO I JUST WANTED TO THANK NANCY FOR THE DUE DILIGENCE.

THE SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLING WORKGROUP IS WE'RE HAVING OUR MEETING TOMORROW AT 8:00 A.M., AND WE'RE GOING TO BASICALLY BE DISCUSSING INFORMATION REGARDING THE INPUT, WHICH REALLY DEALS WITH THE STRUCTURE OF WHETHER WE WANT TO HAVE A INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT, DEPENDENT OR INDEPENDENT, IF ARE OBVIOUSLY CONCERNS WITH EACH OF THEM.

BUT I KNOW THAT ONCE WE FLUSH THAT OUT, IT'LL BE PROBABLY ANOTHER MEETING DOWN THE ROAD FOR EVERYBODY TO PARTICIPATE.

THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, IT'S VERY NICE TO SEE EVERYBODY.

OUR LAST MEETING WAS ON AUGUST 19TH.

I JUST HAD A COUPLE OF REQUESTS FROM STAFF.

[00:15:02]

THE FIRST ONE IS THERE WAS WE HAD OUR HAZARDOUS WASTE EVENT ON SATURDAY, AND I RECEIVED EMAILS FROM SOME RESIDENTS THAT THERE WERE SOME PROBLEMS AND I REALIZE THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN SOME COMPUTER ISSUES THAT LED TO SOME OF THE PROBLEMS WITH THAT EVENT GOING OFF WITHOUT A HITCH.

AND I WOULD JUST LIKE FOR STAFF TO GIVE US AN UPDATE ON THIS NEW WAY THAT WE'RE PROVIDING THE SERVICE OF HAZARDOUS WASTE REMOVAL FOR THE RESIDENTS AT OUR NEXT MEETING SO THAT WE NO LONGER HAVE RESIDENTS GOING TO THE BROWARD COUNTY FACILITY.

WE HAVE THESE EVENTS ONCE A MONTH IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE COUNTY.

WE PARTNER WITH VARIOUS CITIES.

AND AGAIN, THERE WAS A BIT OF AN ISSUE THIS PAST SATURDAY.

AND I JUST WANT SOME CLARIFICATION WHETHER THIS IS A ONE TIME ISSUE OR SOMETHING GOING FORWARD AND IF IT'S SOMETHING GOING FORWARD THAT WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THAT SERVICE. SECONDLY, VOTE BY MAIL BALLOTS ARE COMING OUT SEPTEMBER TWENTY FOURTH.

WE HAVE SEVERAL CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS THAT ARE ON THE BALLOT, BUT WE ALSO HAVE TWO BROWARD COUNTY QUESTIONS THAT ARE ON THE BALLOT.

AND SO MY QUESTION OF ANDY WOULD BE HOW MUCH OF AN EDUCATION CAN WE AS A CITY DO? AND THEN WHAT ARE THE LIMITS THAT WE CAN DO IN OUR PERSONAL CAPACITY FOR EDUCATING THE PUBLIC, ESPECIALLY ON THESE TWO BROWARD COUNTY AMENDMENTS THAT WILL HAVE AN EFFECT ON OUR CITY? CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? YES. THE LIMITATION IS ON THE EXPENDITURE OF PUBLIC FUNDS FOR WHAT'S CALLED ELECTIONEERING, SO OBVIOUSLY EACH ONE OF YOU INDIVIDUALLY ON YOUR OWN TIME CAN SPEAK FOR OR AGAINST AS YOU CHOOSE.

AS TO THE CITY, THE CITY CAN ONLY PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL AND INFORMATIONAL INFORMATION TO GET KIND OF TECHNICAL.

I WOULD HAVE TO REVIEW ANYTHING THAT WENT OUT.

BUT SO BUT IT'S THE LIMITATION UPON THE USE OF CITY FUNDS.

AND WE CANNOT IN ESSENCE BE PUSHING AN ITEM.

WE COULD PROVIDE INFORMATION ON THE PROS AND CONS AND THAT TYPE OF THING, BUT IT CANNOT BE ADVOCACY. OK, I JUST WANT THAT TO BE CLEAR, BECAUSE THESE ARE ITEMS THAT ARE GOING TO BE COMING UP. I PLAN I ALREADY HAVE SPOKEN TO SOME RESIDENTS REGARDING ESPECIALLY THE TWO BROWARD QUESTIONS.

AND I WOULD. AND FOR EVERYBODY HERE TO REALLY DO THEIR HOMEWORK AHEAD OF TIME, BECAUSE THERE'S MUCH MORE ON THE BALLOT THIS GO AROUND THAN THERE WAS LAST TIME AND A LOT OF QUESTIONS, AND IT'S IMPORTANT THAT PEOPLE DO THE RESEARCH AND TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE RAMIFICATIONS COULD BE WITH A YES OR A NO VOTE.

ADDITIONALLY, I WANT TO JUST CLARIFY WITH STAFF.

9E ON OUR AGENDA REGARDING PARKLAND BAY.

HAS THE DEVELOPER YET HAD ANY PERMIT ISSUED THROUGH THE COUNTY OR APPLIED FOR PERMITS FOR THE COUNTY? SO STAFF REACHED OUT TO COUNTY STAFF REGARDING THIS PARTICULAR ITEM.

AND AS OF LATE FRIDAY, WE WERE ADVISED BY THE COUNTY THAT A PERMIT HAS NOT BEEN TOLD FOR THE WORK. AND I ONLY ASK BECAUSE THERE WAS THIS URGENCY IN OUR LAST MEETING, WHICH WAS APPROXIMATELY A MONTH AGO, SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT.

AND THEN LAST BUT NOT LEAST, I WANT TO THANK STAFF VERY MUCH FOR THE BEAUTIFUL, ALBEIT VIRTUAL SEPTEMBER 11TH CEREMONY.

ALL OF US REMEMBER WHERE WE WERE THAT DAY, AND I THINK ALL OF US REMEMBER IN THE DAYS AFTERWARD ABOUT HOW THIS COUNTRY CAME TOGETHER.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE REMEMBER IN TIMES OF CRISIS THAT WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER AND THAT CRISIS MAY ALSO INCLUDE ELECTION SEASON.

IT'S IMPORTANT THAT HOW WE INTERACT WITH ONE ANOTHER, HOW OUR FAMILIES INTERACT WITH ONE ANOTHER, BUT THAT WE BE AS PROFESSIONAL AS POSSIBLE, BECAUSE IN THE END, EVEN IN ELECTIONS, WHILE PEOPLE MIGHT HAVE DIFFERENCES, THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO SERVE THE PUBLIC.

AND WHEN WE ARE BECOMING DIVISIVE, I DON'T THINK AN ELECTED OFFICIAL IN THAT SENSE IS SERVING THE PUBLIC WELL.

SO I JUST KEEP THAT ALL IN MIND.

AND I JUST WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY ON OUR DAIS.

I HAVE SEEN YOU OUT AND ABOUT IN THE COMMUNITY SAFELY AND GAUGING RESIDENTS IN ANY WAY YOU CAN. AND I JUST WANT TO THANK THE COMMISSION FOR DOING THAT.

AND I WANT TO THANK CITY STAFF FOR ALL THE WORK THEY PUT IN.

WE HAVE SOME WONDERFUL, SAFE, PHYSICALLY DISTANT EVENTS COMING UP IN OCTOBER.

[00:20:02]

THIS IS NOT THE OCTOBER PERHAPS WE WERE ORIGINALLY THINKING WE WOULD HAVE, BUT STAFF HAS DONE A REALLY GREAT JOB OF THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX AND BEING CREATIVE IN ORDER TO PROVIDE COMMUNITY EVENTS FOR THE CITY AND ITS RESIDENTS IN A WAY THAT IS SAFE FOR EVERYONE. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT.

AND WITH THAT, WE COME UP TO THE APPROVAL OF THE AGENDA.

[6. Approval of The Agenda]

AND I BELIEVE WE HAD A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER KAGAN AND A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER TO TABLE ITEM 9E.

ANDY IS THIS THE APPROPRIATE PLACE TO DO THAT OR SHOULD WE BE DOING THAT WHEN WE GET TO THE ACTUAL AGENDA ITEM? THE ONLY THING I WOULD SUGGEST IS WHAT IT'S JUST THE TABLING OF AN ITEM AND IT'S NOT A MATTER OF WELL, I WOULD DO IT AFTER THE AFTER THE MILLAGE AND THE BUDGET.

THAT'S THE ONLY THING I WOULD TABLING COULD ARGUABLY BE CONSIDERED DEALING WITH A SUBSTANTIVE ITEM.

SO YOU CAN INDICATE THAT WE'RE GOING TO GO TO TABLE IT SO THE CITY KNOWS IT'S GOING TO BE TABLED. BUT I WOULD DO IT AFTER THE BUDGET.

OK, SO WE'RE GOING NOW INTO THE APPROVAL OF THE AGENDA, THEN COME UP THE BUDGET ITEMS AND THEN THIS IS NINE E.

SO WOULD WE THEN WAIT FOR THE ITEM ITSELF TO COME OFF THE TABLE? ACTUALLY, WHAT YOU CAN DO IN APPROVING THE AGENDA, YOU COULD PUSH THE AGENDA WITH A MOTION TO APPROVE THE AGENDA WITH THE TABLING OF 9E.

THANKS. ALL RIGHT, SO WE HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER KAGAN FOR THIS TO APPROVE THE AGENDA WITH THE TABLING OF ITEM 9E A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER, ALL IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

AYE. ANYONE OPPOSED.

PLEASE SHOW THAT THE AGENDA HAS BEEN APPROVED.

AND WITH THAT, WE COME TO ITEM 7A WITH THE FISCAL YEAR TWENTY TWENTY ONE BUDGET ITEM.

[7. FY2021 Budget Items]

THANK YOU, MAYOR. I'M GOING TO HAVE OUR FINANCE DIRECTOR, CHRIS JOHNSON, DO A QUICK OVERVIEW OF THE BUDGET AND THEN WE WILL READ IN EACH OF THE FOUR ITEMS FOR THE ADOPTION, ADOPTION OF THE FIRE RESCUE AND SOLID WASTE AND FIRST READING OF THE ANNUAL BUDGET AND MILLAGE. SO, CHRIS, COULD PLEASE.

THE BUDGET WILL BE THE FIRST ORDINANCE THAT YOU WILL READ AND THE LITTLE SCRIPT I HAVE TO FOLLOW. MILLAGE RATE IS THE FIRST ITEM, CORRECT? YES, YES, BUT CHRIS, IS GOING TO DO A GENERAL PRESENTATION, THEN I'LL READ IN THE MILLAGE.

UNMUTE CHRIS. NOW, EVERYONE HEAR ME NOW.

YES, WE CAN. SORRY ABOUT THAT.

NO WORRY. SO TONIGHT IS THE FIRST PUBLIC HEARING ON THE BUDGET, THE FIRST LEGALLY REQUIRED READING.

SO THIS IS NOW THE FOURTH, FOURTH STEP OF A FIVE STEP PROCESS TO GET THE FY 2021 BUDGET ADOPTED. GET A QUICK RECAP OF WHERE WE WERE BACK IN AUGUST REALLY JUST MEANS THAT I WILL DEFINITELY READ EVERYTHING AGAIN.

AS WE MENTIONED PREVIOUSLY, THE CITY'S SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS.

THAT'S AN INCREASE OF ABOUT THREE HUNDRED SEVENTY SIX MILLION DOLLARS.

I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT FOUR POINT SIXTY FIVE PERCENT OF THAT, OR ABOUT TWO HUNDRED FORTY NINE MILLION MADE UP OF NEW CONSTRUCTION AND THE REMAINING ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY SEVEN MILLION, ABOUT TWO POINT THREE PERCENT IS INCREASE IS MADE UP OF EXISTING VALUES.

AND ALWAYS KIND OF AS WE LOOK TOWARD THE BUILD OUT OF THE CITY, ONCE WE REACH THAT POINT AND THERE ARE NO MORE NEW HOUSING CONSTRUCTION.

THIS TWO POINT THREE PERCENT IS WILL BE AT THAT TONIGHT WE'RE PROPOSING A RATE OF FOUR POINT FOUR ZERO ZERO, WHICH IS THE SAME AS OUR CURRENT FY 2020 BUDGET AND BY KEEPING THE MILLAGE RATE THE SAME AD VALOREM REVENUE INCREASES JUST UNDER ONE POINT FIVE MILLION DOLLARS FOR THE UPCOMING FISCAL YEAR.

YOU'RE ALSO HAVING THE SECOND READING OF OUR FIRE ASSESSMENT, AND WE ARE AGAIN PROPOSING TO KEEP THAT THE SAME TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS PER HOUSEHOLD.

AND THIS IS JUST A LITTLE SNAPSHOT OF WHERE WE'VE BEEN OVER THE LAST 10 YEARS OR SO, OR WE STARTED OFF WITH ABOUT TWO HUNDRED TEN DOLLARS FOR HEALTH AND NOW WE'RE AT TWO FIFTY.

[00:25:06]

WE HAD A THAN COULD BE AT THIS TIME.

INCREASED NUMBER SO I ALWAYS THROW THIS OUT THERE, THE CITY OF PARKLAND IS NOT THE ONLY COMPONENT OF YOUR YEARLY TAX BILL. THE CITY RECEIVES JUST UNDER TWENTY FOUR PERCENT OF YOUR TAX BILL.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF IT, ABOUT 65, 66 PERCENT OR SO GOES TO BROWARD COUNTY AND THE BROWARD COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT. AGAIN, WE'RE ONLY ONE LITTLE ONE LITTLE SLIVER OF THIS ENTIRE PIE. USING AN AVERAGE HOME IN PARKLAND'S ABOUT SIX HUNDRED THIRTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS OF TAXABLE VALUE.

THEY WILL SEE AN INCREASE OF ABOUT 80 DOLLARS THIS YEAR ON HEIR TAXES, SO ABOUT SEVEN BUCKS A MONTH. IF WE KEEP THE MILLAGE RATE ALWAYS LIKE TO COMPARE OURSELVES TO OUR NEIGHBORING CITIES.

YOU CAN SEE HERE THAT FIVE SEVEN POINT TWO EIGHT.

COCONUT CREEK'S RIGHT AROUND SIX POINT FIVE.

CORAL SPRINGS IS ABOUT SIX POINT ONE.

HERE IN PARKLAND WERE SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER THAN THAT WITH A FOUR POINT FOUR.

IF YOU WERE TO TAKE THAT SAME SIX HUNDRED THIRTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLAR HOME COMPARED TO THOSE SAME CITIES, YOU COULD SEE THE PARKLAND WOULD BE ALMOST A THOUSAND DOLLARS LESS IN CORAL SPRINGS, ABOUT TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLARS LESS THAN COCONUT CREEK AND ABOUT NINETEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS LESS THAN HIGHLIGHTS. THIS IS ALMOST EXACTLY THE WAY IT LOOKED BACK IN AUGUST WHEN WE PRESENTED AT THE BUDGET WORKSHOP THIS BUDGET FOUR POINT FOUR INCLUDED THE ADDITION OF THREE FULL TIME POSITIONS, THE COST OF LIVING INCREASE FOR THE EMPLOYEES AT TWO PERCENT.

AND WE TRY TO GIVE THE EMPLOYEES A THIS YEAR, THE EMPLOYEE'S RETIREMENT CONTRIBUTION IS UNCHANGED.

I ALWAYS LIKE TO MAKE THE POINT THAT THE CITY IS NOT BOUND BY ANY PENSION OBLIGATIONS TO ANY OF ITS EMPLOYEES. THESE ARE SOLELY FOR ONE SO THERE'S NO LINGERING PENSION OBLIGATIONS THAT THE CITY WILL HAVE TO FUND YEARS DOWN THE ROAD. OUR HEALTH INSURANCE IS INCREASING BY A FOUR AND A HALF PERCENT, WHICH ACTUALLY ENDED UP SAVING THE CITY ABOUT ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS COMPARED TO WHAT WAS PRESENTED BACK IN JUNE WHEN WE WERE FORECASTING ABOUT A 10 PERCENT INCREASE.

THIS BUDGET ALSO INCLUDES A DEBT SERVICE PAYMENT OF ABOUT ONE POINT THREE MILLION DOLLARS. THIS WOULD ALLOW US TO START THE SOME OF THE CONSTRUCTION ON SOME OF THE ITEMS THAT IN ADDITION, THIS HAS ABOUT A THREE PERCENT INCREASE IN THE ESO CONTRACT, ABOUT A FOUR PERCENT INCREASE IN THE FIRE RESCUE.

THOSE ARE THE ESO AND FIRE RESCUE ARE TWO BIG DRIVERS THAT MAKE UP ABOUT 50 PERCENT OF THE YEARLY GENERAL FUND BUDGETS.

THIS BUDGET ALSO INCLUDES INCREASING THE FUNDING FOR INFRASTRUCTURE REPLACEMENT FUND THE INFRASTRUCTURE FUNDING GOES UP ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND AND THE EQUIPMENT REPLACEMENTS INCREASE IN FIFTY THOUSAND.

WHAT THIS DOES IS ALLOW US TO PAY FOR FUTURE REPLACEMENTS OF BUILDINGS, ROOFS, AIR CONDITIONERS, VEHICLES AND EQUIPMENT CITY WIDE WITHOUT HAVING TO TOUCH GENERAL FUND MONEY AT THAT TIME. SO THIS IS A FORWARD LOOKING THING THAT REALLY HELPS TAKE CARE OF A CITY DOWNTOWN IN THE LONG RUN.

FROM AN OPERATING PERSPECTIVE, THIS BUDGET RIGHT NOW SHOWING ABOUT A THREE POINT EIGHT PERCENT INCREASE IN GENERAL OPERATIONS.

AND HERE THESE ARE JUST THE PROPOSED CAPITAL ITEMS THAT WERE INCLUDED IN THE BUDGET BOOK THAT YOU ALL PROVIDED BACK IN JULY, THERE HAVE BEEN NO CHANGES TO THIS.

I'M NOT GOING TO GO THROUGH THE LIST ONE BY ONE.

YOU ALREADY HAVE THAT. I BROUGHT THIS BACK, BROUGHT THIS UP BACK IN AUGUST, BUT I DO WANT TO SHARE THAT WE'VE GOT WE RECEIVED OUR FY 2021 STATE REVENUE FORECASTS IN LATE JULY AND THEY REPORTED BACK IN AUGUST AND THIS IS THE SAME TODAY.

[00:30:03]

OUR NUMBERS WERE VERY MUCH IN LINE WITH THE NUMBERS THEY PROVIDED.

THERE WAS NO NEED FOR US TO GO BACK AND ADJUST THOSE REVENUES.

OBVIOUSLY, WE ALWAYS CONTINUALLY MONITOR ALL REVENUES, ESPECIALLY GIVEN THE CURRENT STATE OF THE PANDEMIC AND THERE'S SO MUCH UNCERTAINTY.

WE'RE ALWAYS KEEPING OUR THUMB ON THESE REVENUES AND KEEPING A PULSE ON THE ENTIRE ECONOMY AS A WHOLE. EXPENDITURE TRENDS IS NO DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WAS PRESENT IN THE PAST, AND NANCY INSTRUCTED ALL DEPARTMENTS THAT REALLY CONSERVATIVE IN THEIR SPENDING, WHICH HAS TAKEN PLACE. PROJECTIONS ARE FAR LESS THAN WHAT WE HAVE IN OUR BUDGET.

AND AGAIN, FOR 2021 DEPARTMENTS WERE INSTRUCTED TO KEEP THEIR OPERATING BUDGET THE SAME OR LESS THAN WHAT WAS BUDGETED FOR THIS CURRENT FISCAL YEAR.

THIS WAS JUST A LITTLE REPRESENTATION OF WHERE WE PROJECTED OUR SURPLUS SHORTFALL BACK IN JUNE, AND THIS IS EVERYTHING I'VE BEEN LOOKING AT.

THIS SEEMS TO BE A PRETTY GOOD ESTIMATION OF WHERE FY 2020 WILL END UP AT THE END OF THE DAY. SO AT THE CURRENT FOUR POINT FOUR MILLAGE RATE THIS IS WHAT OUR GENERAL FUND FORECAST LOOKS AT OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, WE'RE DOING PRETTY GOOD FOR THE NEXT THREE OR FOUR YEARS.

AND ONCE WE GET TO FY 2025, WE SHO A ALMOST A ONE POINT TWO MILLION DOLLARS DEFICIT AT THAT TIME. SO I KNOW ONE OF THE DECISIONS TONIGHT WILL BE THE MILLAGE RATE AND IF THE CITY WERE TO ADOPT THE ROLLBACK RATE OF FOUR POINT TWO NINE SEVEN NINE, THAT'S A DECREASE OF JUST OVER .1 MILLS AND SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS.

AND YOU HAVE TO KEEP IN MIND THAT THAT WILL THAT LOSSES WILL BE COMPOUNDED FOR EVERY YEAR. IF YOU LOOK AT THIS CHART, YOU'LL SEE THAT OVER THE COURSE OF FIVE YEARS, THE CITY WOULD LOSE ALMOST TWO POINT NINE MILLION DOLLARS CUMULATIVELY OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS BY DECREASING THE MILLAGE TO THE ROLLBACK RATE.

SO IF WE USE THAT ROLLBACK RATE INTO OUR FORECAST, YOU CAN SEE WE START OPERATING DEFICITS FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS AND THEN FY 2024 AND FY 2025 , THOSE DEFICITS BECOME SHARPER AND MORE DOWN AND EACH YEAR.

SO OBVIOUSLY, IF WE WERE TO GO BACK TO THE ROLLBACK RATE THAT WOULD MEAN THAT THE AVERAGE HOMEOWNER IN PERSON WOULD SEE NO NO CHANGE IN THEIR AD VALOREM TAXES AND THE ONLY CHANGE THEY WOULD SEE WOULD BE THE INCREASE OF 78 CENTS TO THEIR HERE'S A COUPLE OPTIONS TO KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WAS HERE BACK IN BACK IN JULY AND AGAIN IN AUGUST AS WELL, THAT A MILLAGE RATE OF 4.4 THIS ALLOWS THE CITY TO MAINTAIN ITS FINANCIAL STABILITY AND EXCELLENT FINANCIAL HEALTH WHILE ALSO MAINTAINING THE CITY'S EXISTING SERVICE LEVELS.

THIS ALSO GIVES US THE ABILITY TO PREPARE AND PLAN FOR THE CITY'S FUTURE BY CONTINUING THE PARK'S MASTER PLAN GOING FORWARD WITH 15 MILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT THAT'S THE POTENTIAL FOR PUBLIC SAFETY DEPARTMENT AND CONTINUING TO FUND THE REPLACEMENT PLANS TO FOSTER A LOOK AHEAD, HIRE THREE NEW EMPLOYEES FOR THE CITY AS WELL.

AT THE 4.2979 ROLLBACK THE LONG TERM FINANCIAL STABILITY AND LONG TERM FINANCIAL IS LOWERED, AS YOU CAN SEE BY THOSE PREVIOUS CHARTS, BUT WE'RE STILL ABLE TO MAINTAIN MOST OF THE SERVICE LEVELS.

THERE WILL BE SOME DECISION MAKING ON WHETHER TO CONTINUE OR DEFER THE PARKS MASTER PLAN, WHICH WOULD ULTIMATELY AFFECT WHETHER WE'RE GOING TO TAKE OUT THE DEBT OR NOT.

THE PUBLIC SAFETY DEPARTMENT, THAT WOULD THAT'S 8 OR 10 MILLION DOLLAR COST UP FRONT, THAT WOULD BE A HUGE DECISION.

IT WOULD PROBABLY STILL BE ABLE TO HIRE THE THREE NEW EMPLOYEES THAT WE'VE ASKED FOR.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE TONIGHT, JUST KIND OF RECAPPING WHERE WE ARE, WHERE WE'RE AT FROM JUNE TO JULY TO AUGUST.

AND THAT'S ALL I HAVE AS FAR AS MY PRESENTATION TONIGHT.

THANK YOU. SO I JUST HAVE A COMMENT, I MADE THIS BEFORE, FIRST OF ALL, CHRIS, YOU DID A WONDERFUL JOB ON THE BOOK AND THE BUDGET AND THE PRESENTATION.

THE ITEM THAT WE'RE DISCUSSING NOW IS THE MILLAGE RATE.

I AM GOING TO CONTINUE WITH THE SAME MESSAGE I HAVE SAID AT EVERY MEETING WHERE WE HAVE

[00:35:03]

DISCUSSED THIS MILLAGE RATE GOING BACK I THINK AS FAR AS JUNE.

I BELIEVE THAT WE SHOULD GO TO THE ROLLBACK RATE.

THIS IS THE MILLAGE RATE THAT WE'RE VOTING ON RIGHT NOW IS A ONE YEAR MILLAGE RATE.

WE ARE IN A PANDEMIC WHERE PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR JOBS, WHERE PEOPLE ARE LOSING THEIR BUSINESSES AND WHO WHILE KEEPING THE MILLAGE RATE THE SAME, WE ARE ASKING PEOPLE THE DOLLAR AMOUNT THAT PEOPLE ARE PAYING IN TAXES WILL BE HIGHER, EVEN WITH THE MILLAGE RATE BEING THE SAME BECAUSE OF THE INCREASED VALUE OF THE HOME.

BUT WHILE IT IS NOT A HUGE AMOUNT OF SAVINGS GOING DOING THE ROLLBACK RATE, I THINK IT IS THE VERY LEAST WE CAN DO AS A CITY IS LET THE RESIDENTS KNOW WE UNDERSTAND THE POSITION THEY'RE IN AND THAT WE ARE ALSO WILLING TO TIGHTEN OUR BELTS AT CITY HALL.

AGAIN, THIS IS A ONE YEAR THING IN THE YEAR OF A PANDEMIC.

NUMBER TWO, AS FAR AS THE OPTIONS THAT CHRIS GAVE US AS TO WHERE THINGS WOULD GO, WHERE THE MONEY WOULD COME FROM.

SHOULD THE MILLAGE RATE GO BACK TO THE ROLLBACK RATE, THAT WOULD BE A COMMISSION DECISION, NOT A STAFF DECISION AS TO WHAT THE CHOICES WOULD BE OF WHAT WHERE WE WOULD WANT TO SAVE THE FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS.

AND IF STAFF IS GOING WITH KEEPING THE DEPARTMENT BUDGETS THE SAME OR LESS THAN IN 2020, THERE SHOULD BE A WAY TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

ADDITIONALLY, WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TAX REVENUE, IT'S NOT THAT WE HAVE A LOSS IN TAX REVENUE. THIS IS NOT A LOSS FOR US, THIS IS THE MONEY THAT WE GET FROM THE RESIDENTS.

SO I WOULD PREFER IF WE DON'T TALK ABOUT IT, AS IF WHEN WE'RE GIVING NOT ASKING AS MUCH TAX MONEY FROM THE RESIDENTS, THAT WE DON'T CALL IT A LOSS TO THE CITY BECAUSE THIS IS EVERY PENNY WE TAKE FROM OUR RESIDENTS IS MONEY THAT THEY HAVE WORKED HARD TO EARN.

AND AGAIN, I ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY IN OUR COMMUNITY TO REALLY LOOK AT THEIR NOTICES AND THEIR TAX INVOICES AND BILLS, BECAUSE THE CITY OF PARKLAND IS ONE OF THE SMALLEST PORTIONS ON THE ACTUAL TAX BILL.

AND WITH THAT, ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY COMMENT ON THIS MILLAGE RATE.

ANYONE.

WE'LL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, ANYBODY FROM THE PUBLIC MAY NEED YES. OK, BEFORE WE GO, I NEED TO DO SOMETHING, I NEED TO READ, I NEED TO DO.

I HAVE NOT READ IN THE TITLE YET, SO WHY DON'T I DO THAT? OK, OK.

OK, GREAT. OK, ORDINANCE NUMBER 2020 018 ADOPTING THE FY 2021 MILLAGE RATE AT FOUR POINT FOUR ZERO ZERO ZERO.

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF PARKLAND, FLORIDA, ADOPTING THE MILLAGE RATE FOR THE FISCAL YEAR BEGINNING OCTOBER 1ST.

2020 AND ENDING SEPTEMBER 30TH 2021.

SAVING THE PERCENTAGE CHANGE BY WHICH THE MILLAGE RATE EXCEEDS THE ROLLBACK RATE AS COMPUTED PURSUANT SECTION TWO HUNDRED POINT ZERO SIX FIVE FLORIDA STATUTES PROVIDING FOR COMPLEX SEVERABILITY AND PROVIDING FOR EFFECTIVE DATE.

GO AHEAD ANDY. AND NANCY, IF YOU WANT TO JUST READ THE CALL IN NUMBER JUST IN CASE ANYONE IS JUST TUNING IN.

YES, LET ME SAY SOME PEOPLE ARE HAVING DIFFICULTY.

THE CALL IN NUMBER FOR THIS MEETING IS 646 558 8656.

LET ME REPEAT THAT AGAIN.

646 558 8656 AND THE MEETING I.D.

NUMBER IS 89790363636.

OK. THE PROPOSED MILLAGE RATE FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 2021 IS FOUR POINT FOUR MILLS WHICH REPRESENTS A TWO POINT THREE EIGHT PERCENT, TWO POINT THREE EIGHT PERCENT INCREASE OVER THE ROLLBACK RATE OF FOUR POINT TWO NINE SEVEN NINE.

AND SUCH AS SUCH, CHANGE IS CHARACTERIZED AS A PERCENTAGE INCREASE IN PROPERTY TAXES PURSUANT TO SECTION TWO HUNDRED POINT ZERO SIX FIVE FLORIDA STATUTE.

SO THE PROPOSED MILLAGE RATE ON FIRST READING BE HEARD ON SECOND READING IN THIS ORDINANCE AS IT STANDS, IS FOUR POINT FOUR ZERO ZERO ZERO MILLS.

AND AGAIN, THAT WOULD BE A TWO POINT THREE EIGHT PERCENT INCREASE OVER THE ROLLBACK RATE.

AND IT'S CONSIDERED THE INCREASE IN AD VALOREM TAXES UNDER THE FLORIDA STATUTE OF THE SECOND HEARING WILL BE ON.

WHEN IS THE SECOND HEARING NANCY?

[00:40:01]

IT'S NEXT WEDNESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THE EXACT DAY, THE 23RD.

THE 23RD.

NOW THE PUBLIC HEARING, IT CAN BE OPEN, YOU CAN ALSO COMMENT ON THE BUDGET DURING ANY MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC BUT THIS IS FOR THE ADOPTION OF THE MILLAGE RATE/ THANK YOU, MAYOR. OK, THANK YOU.

AND WITH THAT, I WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC IF ANYBODY FROM THE PUBLIC WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM.

NO ONE FROM THE PUBLIC.

I AM CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC AND OPENING TO THE COMMISSION.

COMMISSIONER CUTLER, YOU HAD YOUR HAND RAISED. SO I THINK I WOULD ALSO REITERATE.

I'M SORRY, KEN, THERE WAS A MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC, I THINK THERE WAS A DELAY HERE.

I'M SORRY ABOUT THAT, IF I COULD.

WE HAVE TO MEET TANEKA LAWRENCE.

YES, HI.

I AM NEW TO PARKLAND AND I CAME IN 2017, AND I DO APPRECIATE, EVEN THOUGH IT'S A SMALL DECREASE, I DO APPRECIATE AS SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN AFFECTED BY THE PANDEMIC AND WHO HAS NOW DOWN TO ONE INCOME IN OUR FAMILY, WE'RE DOING WE'RE DOING OK, BUT WE ARE TIGHTENING UP OUR BUDGET. AND SO TO THE EXTENT THAT WE CAN KEEP IT A LITTLE BIT LOWER JUST FOR THIS ONE YEAR, WE WOULD WE WOULD APPRECIATE THAT.

SO I JUST WANTED TO SHARE THAT WITH THOSE THAT ARE IN THE POSITION TO MAKE THESE DECISIONS FOR US AND OUR FAMILIES.

SO WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THAT.

AND THEN ALSO ONE OF THE THINGS JUST LOOKING AT THE BUDGET.

WE LOVE TO TAKE IT, WE HAVE TWO SMALL BOYS, SO THEY'RE THERE FOUR AND ONE AND WE LOVE TO TAKE THEM TO THE PARK AND WE SEE A SIGNIFICANT.

YOU CAN SEE A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE BUDGET GOING TO INFRASTRUCTURE RELATED THINGS, REPURPOSING SOME OF THE FIELDS IN BOTH SO I DON'T KNOW IF SOME AREAS ARE LOOKING FOR WAYS TO DIFFERENT OPPORTUNITIES TO DELAY SOME OF THOSE THOSE IMPROVEMENTS OR MAYBE NEXT YEAR OR THE FOLLOWING YEAR, BECAUSE WE CAN'T EVEN REALLY USE THE PARK AT THIS POINT.

RIGHT NOW, A LOT OF THOSE PLAYGROUND AREAS ARE CLOSED OFF.

SO JUST AS JUST A SUGGESTION, JUST LOOKING THROUGH THE BUDGET, I DID GO TO THE PREVIOUS RESIDENCE MEETING AND IT WAS VERY, VERY HELPFUL JUST TO UNDERSTAND THE BUDGET A LITTLE BIT BETTER. BUT THAT WOULD BE MY RECOMMENDATION.

WE DON'T REALLY GET A CHANCE TO USE PLAYGROUNDS NOW, SO MAYBE SOME OF THAT COULD BE TRANSFERRED TO A FUTURE YEAR.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

ANYBODY ELSE FROM THE PUBLIC? APOLOGIZE TO EVERYONE, WE'VE BEEN HAVING A FEW TECHNICAL ISSUES THIS EVENING.

SEEING NO ONE ELSE FROM THE PUBLIC, WE'RE CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC AND I'M GOING BACK TO COMMISSIONER CUTLER, I APOLOGIZE, COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

I JUST DIDN'T WANT I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PUBLIC WHO IS HERE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK. SO NO WORRIES AT ALL.

AND I WANT TO THANK TANEKA VERY MUCH FOR, YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES IT'S A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO SPEAK IN PUBLIC, AND I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS.

I JUST WANTED TO REITERATE MY COMMENTS FROM OUR LAST MEETING.

I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A DIFFICULT TIME FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE.

AND I UNDERSTAND THAT THE PANDEMIC HAS CAUSED US TO RETHINK THE WAY THAT WE DO THINGS.

MANY PEOPLE ARE WORKING FROM HOME, MYSELF INCLUDED, AND IT HAS CAUSED SOME DIFFICULTIES IN THAT REGARD. WE DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE SCHOOLS AND THERE'S A LOT OF DIFFICULTIES. THE CITY ALSO IS A REPOSITORY FOR THE PUBLIC TRUST.

AND THE PEOPLE OF PARKLAND MOVED HERE FOR A PARTICULAR REASON, ONE OF THOSE REASONS, WHICH IS THAT THEY MOVED HERE FOR THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF SERVICES IN THE COMMUNITY, THE THE ABILITY TO HAVE THESE WONDERFUL PARKS AND EVERYTHING WE'VE SET ASIDE AND DETERMINED THROUGH OUR MASTER PLAN THAT WE HAVE FORTY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS IN PROJECTS TO UPGRADE AND BUILD OTHER PARKS IN THE COMMUNITY TO SERVICE THE NEW PEOPLE THAT ARE THAT ARE GOING TO BE MOVING IN. SPOKEN WITH REALTORS WHO HAVE INDICATED THAT SALES IN PARKLAND, NOTWITHSTANDING THE PANDEMIC STILL ARE VERY ROBUST RELATIVE TO REAL ESTATE.

AND THE PEOPLE THAT ARE MOVING HERE, LIKE I SAID, ARE EXPECTING US TO TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE THE QUALITY SERVICES THAT WE'VE COME TO BE KNOWN FOR.

YOU KNOW, I HEARKEN BACK TO WHAT I USUALLY DO, AND THAT IS TO RELY UPON THE STAFF THAT WE'VE HIRED, EXCELLENT QUALITY PERSONNEL WHO KNOW THEIR BUSINESS, PARTICULARLY IN REGARDS

[00:45:05]

TO RUNNING THE CITY. THEY HAVE RECOMMENDED THAT WE STAY AT THE FOUR POINT FOUR FOUR FOR FINANCIAL FISCAL PURPOSES.

THEY HAVE INDICATED THAT THE FAILURE TO DO SO WOULD BE A LOSS IN REVENUES TO THE CITY THAT IS CHARGED WITH CONTINUING TO MAINTAIN THESE SERVICES.

AND FURTHER, THERE ARE THINGS THAT ARE ON THE RELATIVELY NEAR FUTURE PERSPECTIVE THAT WE HAVE TO KEEP IN MIND RELATIVE TO WHAT OUR FINANCES ARE.

WE'RE CURRENTLY EMBROILED IN A LITIGATION OVER ROADS, OVER IN THE PINE TREE ESTATES AREA.

WE HAVE ISSUES RELATIVE TO SOME OF THE ROADS IN THE RANCHES.

THERE ARE INFRASTRUCTURAL ASPECTS TO SOME OF THE PARTS THAT ARE UNDER WATER THAT ARE UNABLE TO BE UTILIZED AND HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO BE UTILIZED FOR A PERIOD OF TIME.

AND SO I'M JUST GOING TO REITERATE WHAT I SAID EARLIER, THAT IT IS A SEVEN DOLLAR A MONTH THING. I UNDERSTAND FROM TANEKA'S PERSPECTIVE THAT YOU'RE TRYING VERY HARD TO SAVE EVERY DOLLAR. BUT WE HAVE TO THINK OF THE COLLECTIVE OF THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY IN TRYING TO DETERMINE WHETHER WE CAN CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN THE SERVICES AND BE PREPARED FOR THINGS THAT ARE COMING OUR WAY IN THE FUTURE.

AND SO AND SO I AM GOING TO STAY WITH MY POSITION THAT I THINK WE SHOULD STAY WITH THE FOUR POINT FOUR. THANK YOU.

ANYBODY ELSE FROM THE COMMISSION? COMMISSIONER WALKER.

YEAH. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS, TANEKA.

AND, YOU KNOW, I CERTAINLY DON'T WANT TO DIMINISH ANY CUT, BUT, YOU KNOW, I TEND TO AGREE WITH COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT WE NEED TO DO AS FAR AS WORKING ON THE PARKS, WE JUST SPENT THE MONEY TO BUY THE NEW LAND.

SO WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE FINANCIALLY SOUND TO GO AHEAD WITH THAT CONSTRUCTION OF THAT NEW PARK. I DO AGREE WITH THE MAYOR IN THAT I WOULD LKE TO ISEE WHAT WE CAN DO INTERNALLY TO BRING OUR COSTS DOWN, WHETHER IT'S CUT SOME BUDGETS HERE OR THERE.

BUT I WOULD LIKE TO KEEP THE MILLAGE RATE THE SAME.

BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE OF AN EFFORT IF POSSIBLE FROM NANCY TO SEE WHAT WE CAN DO ON THAT SIDE. NO NUMBER IN PARTICULAR.

BUT JUST TO SEE THAT MAKE SURE WE'RE TIGHTEN OUR BELTS.

DO WE NEED THE THREE EMPLOYEES WE'RE LOOKING AT OR DO WE NEED THE THREE POINT EIGHT PERCENT INCREASE IN THE INTERNAL GENERAL FUND WITH THE DIRECTORS AND WHAT HAVE YOU? BUT I THINK KEEPING THE TAX RATE STABLE, I KNOW THE MAYOR SAID FOR THIS YEAR, BUT THEN TO TRY TO RAISE IT NEXT YEAR, THAT BRINGS IN A WHOLE OTHER BALLGAME.

SO I'M A BIG FAN OF THAT'S OUR TAX RATE, WE HAVE ONE OF THE LOWEST MILLAGE RATES IN THE AREA, WHICH CHRIS SHOWED SO WELL.

SO, AGAIN, I'M WITH KEN ON THIS ONE.

I THINK THE FOUR POINT FOUR, IF WE WERE LOOKING TO DO A TAX DECREASE OF A COUPLE HUNDRED DOLLARS A YEAR OR A COUPLE OF THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR, THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT THE RESIDENTS WOULD, YOU KNOW, WOULD FEEL THAT WOULD BE CHANGING KNOW TO ME THE 80 TO ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS. WHILE AGAIN, I DON'T WANT TO DIMINISH THAT SAVINGS.

I THINK, AGAIN, WHAT COMMISSIONER CUTLER SAID AS A COLLECTIVE WHOLE OF THE CITY, THAT'S A LOT OF MONEY THAT WILL NOT ENABLE US TO DO SOME OF THE PROJECTS THAT WE WANT TO DO, SOME OF THE MAINTENANCE THAT WE NEED TO DO, SOME OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS THAT WE WANT TO DO OR THAT WE NEED TO DO.

SO I'M ALSO IN FAVOR OF 4.4 VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN. I'M GOING TO LOOK AT IT KIND OF A LITTLE DIFFERENT OR TAKE IT A LITTLE DIFFERENT APPROACH TO IT.

I'M A STRONG BELIEVER OF HAVING A MILLAGE STABILIZATION RATE, SO WE KNOW THAT FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS WE'RE GOING TO BE AT FOUR POINT FOUR AND DOWN, NUMBER ONE.

NUMBER TWO, I BELIEVE AND CHRIS, YOU CAN CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG, THAT WE ARE ONE OF THE LOWEST IN THE COUNTY IN PER CAPITA INCOME EXPENDITURES AS WELL AS PER CAPITA INCOME REVENUE. SO THAT'S I BELIEVE WHEN I SAY IN THE COUNTY, WE'RE MAYBE EXPENDITURES AND TWO IN.

TWO IN EXPENDITURES, MAYBE THREE IN REVENUE.

THE OTHER PART ABOUT IT IS, IS THAT THE AD VALOREM TAX FROM RESIDENTS IS PROBABLY ABOUT 60 PERCENT OF THE BUDGET.

[00:50:01]

SO IT'S NOT ALL OF THE BUDGET.

THERE ARE POSSIBLE CUTS THAT WE'RE GOING TO LOSE IN OTHER AREAS FROM WHETHER IT'S COUNTY FUNDING OR STATE FUNDING.

BUT I GO BACK TO AND AGAIN, ALTHOUGH THIS IS NOT PART OF THIS DISCUSSION, I GO BACK INTO OUR FIRE ASSESSMENT FEE.

AND I KNOW WE ALWAYS CHUCKLE WHEN I SAY I CAN'T SUPPORT IT, BUT A LET'S SAY A 50 DOLLAR REDUCTION IN THE FIRE ASSESSMENT FEE CREATES A FAIR, EQUITABLE SHARE FOR EVERY RESIDENT THAT WOULD RECEIVE A KIND OF WE'LL CALL IT A TAX REBATE IN SOME RESPECT, NOT NECESSARILY A MILLAGE RATE REDUCTION, WHICH WOULD, DEPENDING UPON THE VALUE OF YOUR PROPERTY, SOME ARE GOING TO RECEIVE MORE SOME ARE GOING TO RECEIVE LESS.

SO WHEN THE TIME COMES TO APPROVE THE FIRE ASSESSMENT FEE, I'M GOING TO BRING THAT FORWARD. ANYBODY ELSE? OK, AND I'M JUST GOING TO FINISH OFF BY SAYING I AGREE THAT OUR STAFF DOES A GREAT JOB AND I AGREE THAT RESIDENTS SHOULD COME HERE FOR GREAT SERVICES BECAUSE OF COVID.

WE HAVEN'T REALLY BEEN ABLE TO PROVIDE SOME OF THOSE SERVICES IN THE TIME BEING.

AND I WOULD CHALLENGE OUR STAFF TO GO LOOK AT WHERE THEY CAN FIND THE MONEY IN ORDER TO GIVE OUR RESIDENTS SOME RELIEF THIS YEAR IN AN EXTRAORDINARY SITUATION WHERE WE ARE NOW IN A PANDEMIC THAT HAS CAUSED MANY PEOPLE TO ECONOMICALLY SUFFER.

AND I THINK IT'S JUST IMPORTANT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT BEING COMPASSIONATE AND BEING COMPASSIONATE CITY, THAT WE ACTUALLY LISTEN TO RESIDENTS AND THE SITUATIONS THEY'RE IN AND GO FROM THERE.

AND WITH THAT, DO I HAVE A MOTION ON THE MILLAGE RATE? MOTION TO APPROVE FOUR POINT FOUR.

I'LL SECOND. I HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER, A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER WALKER ROLL CALL, PLEASE. COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

YES.

VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN. YES.

COMMISSIONER KAGAN.

NO. COMMISSIONER WALKER.

YES. MAYOR HUNSCHOFSKY.

NO. THAT IT PASSES THREE TO TWO.

NEXT ON THE AGENDA IS ITEM 7B..

YES. ORDINANCE NUMBER 2020 019, ZERO ONE NINE ADOPTING THE FY, 2020 ANNUAL BUDGET.

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF PARKLAND, FLORIDA, ADOPTING A BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR BEGINNING OCTOBER ONE, 2020 AND ENDING SEPTEMBER 30TH 2021 PROVIDING FOR CONFLICT SEVERABILITY AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

AGAIN, THIS IS JUST AN ORDINANCE TO APPROVE THE ANNUAL BUDGET AND THE ANNUAL BUDGET, AS IS PRESENTED IN ALL THE SUMMARY SHEETS ATTACHED.

AND THIS IS THE ANNUAL BUDGET BASED ON THE FOUR POINT FOUR MILLAGE RATE.

THAT IS CORRECT. THEY'RE OK WITH THAT.

I WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, ANYBODY FROM THE PUBLIC TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM.

BEING NO ONE FROM THE PUBLIC, I'M CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC AND OPENING TO THE COMMISSION.

MOTION TO APPROVE.

SECOND. I HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER, A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER WALKER.

ROLL CALL, PLEASE. MUTED.

NO, YOU MUTED YOURSELF AGAIN.

SORRY.

COMMISSIONER KAGAN. I COULDN'T HEAR.

COMMISSIONER KAGAN. YOUR VOTING.

YOUR VOTING ON THE BUDGET ITEM AT 7B.

HAD A BREAK UP IN MY INTERNET SO I COULDN'T HEAR ANYTHING THAT JUST HAPPENED.

WE'RE ON ITEM 7 B, WHICH IS THE BUDGET, AND WE ARE ASKING HOW YOU VOTE.

YES. COMMISSIONER WALKER.

YES, VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN.

YES.

COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

YES. MAYOR HUNSCHOFSY.

SINCE I DON'T AGREE WITH THE MILLAGE RATE I AM VOTING NO ON THE BUDGET.

NEXT ITEM IS ITEM 7C.

YES, RESOLUTION NUMBER 2020 053 THE FY 2021 FIRE RESCUE ASSESSMENT RATE.

A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF PARKLAND, FLORIDA, RELATING TO THE PROVISIONS OF THE FIRE RESCUE SERVICES FACILITIES AND PROGRAMS IN THE CITY OF PARKLAND, FLORIDA. REIMPOSING FIRE RESCUE ASSESSMENTS AGAINST ACCESSED PROPERTY LOCATED IN THE CITY OF PARKLAND FOR THE FISCAL YEAR BEGINNING OCTOBER 1ST OF 2020 APPROVING THE RATE OF

[00:55:05]

ASSESSMENTS, PROVIDING THE ASSESSMENT ROLE AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

AND AS WE HAD PREVIOUSLY DISCUSSED, THIS IS A RATE OF TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTY PER DWELLING UNIT. WHICH BEEN THE SAME RATE FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS.

AND WITH THAT, I WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC IF ANYBODY FROM THE PUBLIC WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND.

SEEING NO ONE FROM THE PUBLIC, I'M CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC AND OPENING TO THE COMMISSION.

VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN.

LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION THAT WE REDUCE THE RATE FROM TWO FIFTY TO TWO HUNDRED.

AGAIN, THIS DOES NOT AFFECT SERVICES OR THE FIRE FIRE, NOT EMS. I THINK THIS WAY IT GIVES EVERYBODY AN EQUAL FOOTING IN THE CITY THAT WE'RE REDUCING RATES AS OPPOSED TO, AS I SAID BEFORE, ENTERING IT IN THE MILLAGE.

SO I MAKE THAT MOTION.

CAN WE HAVE SOME QUESTIONS ON THAT, NANCY.

WHAT WOULD BE THE FISCAL IMPLICATIONS OF THAT ON THE BUDGET? I JUST RAN THE NUMBERS FAIRLY QUICKLY AND BASED ON WHAT I SEE IS THE NUMBER OF HOUSEHOLDS, WE'RE LOOKING AT ABOUT FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS.

AND I WOULD JUST LIKE TO BRING TO I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS OF THE FIRE ASSESSMENT FEE DOESN'T IMPACT CITY SERVICES AND YET FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ON A LOWERING OF THE MILLAGE DOES.

WE HAVE A MOTION BY VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN.

I WILL PASS THE GAVEL TO.

IN ORDER TO SECOND THE ITEM.

WE HAVE ROLL CALL. THIS IS ON THE MOTION TO AMEND THE ORDINANCE BEFORE YOU TO HAVE TO REDUCE IT FROM TWO FIFTY TO TWO HUNDRED, THEN YOU WOULD VOTE ON THE ORDER THE MOTION TO AMEND THE TEXT ROLL CALL, COMMISSIONER WALKER.

VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN. YES.

MAYOR HUNSCHOFSKY. YES, PLEASE, SHO THAT IT DOES NOT PASS.

NOW THERE WOULD BE A MOTION ON THE ORDINANCE THAT'S BEFORE YOU.

SECOND.

SECOND BY COMMISSIONER WALKER.

ROLL CALL, PLEASE. VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN.

NO. COMMISSIONER KAGAN. YES. COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

YES, COMMISSIONER WALKER.

YES.

MAYOR HUNSCHOFSKY. NO, PLEASE SHOW THAT IT PASSES THREE TO TWO.

NEXT ON THE AGENDA, ITEM 7D.

YES, RESOLUTION NUMBER 2020 054 THE FY 2021 SOLID WASTE ASSESSMENT.

A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY OF PARKLAND, FLORIDA RELATING TO THE COLLECTION AND DISPOSAL OF SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLABLE MATERIALS AND THE INCORPORATION AREA OF THE CITY OF PARKLAND, FLORIDA, ESTABLISHING THE RATE OF ASSESSMENT AND POSTING SOLID WASTE SERVICE ASSESSMENT AGAINST YEAR BEGINNING OCTOBER 1ST, 2020, APPROVING THE RATE OF ASSESSMENT, APPROVING THE ASSESSMENT ROLL, CONFIRMING THE PRELIMINARY RATE RESOLUTION AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE. ONCE AGAIN, AS CHRIS HAS PRESENTED, THIS IS PROPOSING THE SOLID WASTE, AN INCREASE OF 72 CENTS TO THREE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY NINE DOLLARS AND TWENTY EIGHT CENTS.

AND JUST TO BE CLEAR WITH THE PUBLIC, MANY, MANY, MANY YEARS AGO, RESIDENTS USED TO BE BILLED DIRECTLY, WOULD BE SENT AN INVOICE FROM WASTE MANAGEMENT TO THEIR HOMES.

AT THAT TIME.

SEVERAL YEARS AGO, THE CITY COMMISSION AGREED TO PUT THE WASTE MANAGEMENT FEE ON THE TAX BILL IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE FUNDS COULD BE COLLECTED AND THAT RESULTED IN A DISCOUNTED PRICE.

SO THE AMOUNT THAT WE ARE APPROVING TONIGHT IS NOT AN AMOUNT BY THE CITY.

THE CITY IS NOT MAKING MONEY OFF OF THIS, THIS IS SOLELY A PASS THROUGH COSTS COMING DIRECTLY FROM WASTE MANAGEMENT.

AND WITH THAT, I WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

SEEING NO ONE FROM THE PUBLIC I WILL CLOSE TO THE PUBLIC AND OPEN TO THE COMMISSION.

MOTION TO APPROVE.

SECOND.

MOTION BY COMMISSIONER KAGAN, A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER WALKER, A ROLL CALL, PLEASE.

MICHELE MELLGREN, PLEASE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AGAIN, THIS IS A CODE AMENDMENT THAT WILL ACTUALLY ALLOW THE AE1 OR THE AGRICULTURAL ESTATE DISTRICT TO HAVE THE SAME LANDSCAPE REQUIREMENTS AS OTHER AGRICULTURAL OR LARGE LOT ZONING DISTRICTS THAT WE HAVE RIGHT NOW SO IT'S JUST BASICALLY A CLEAN UP ITEM.

THANK YOU, MICHELE. YEAH, THIS IS A CLEAN UP BECAUSE IT WAS IMPOSING AN UNDUE HARDSHIP ON CERTAIN MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY AND THEY WERE THE ONES THAT BROUGHT THIS TO OUR ATTENTION, WHICH IS WONDERFUL.

AND WE APPRECIATE THAT.

SO WITH THAT, I WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC IF ANYBODY FROM THE PUBLIC WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM.

PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND.

SEEING NO ONE FROM THE PUBLIC, I AM OPENING TO THE COMMISSION AND AGAIN, THIS ORDINANCE IS ON SECOND READING.

MOTION TO APPROVE. I HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER, A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER KAGAN . ROLL CALL, PLEASE. VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN.

MICHELE. THANK YOU AGAIN, JUST TO JOG YOUR MEMORY THAT THIS IS AN ORDINANCE THAT WOULD PROHIBIT THE CONVERSION OF TRAILERS TO PERMANENT BUILDINGS, BUT IT WILL NOT AFFECT ANY EXISTING TRAILER THAT'S BEEN CONVERTED AND THAT'S THE SUMMARY OF THIS ORDINANCE.

THANK YOU, MICHELE. AND WITH THAT, I WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, ANYONE FROM THE PUBLIC TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM.

PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. SEEING NO ONE FROM THE PUBLIC, I'M CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC AND OPENING TO THE COMMISSION.

MOTION TO APPROVE. I HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER CUTLAR, A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER KAGAN, ROLL CALL, PLEASE. COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

YES.

VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN. YES.

COMMISSIONER WALKER.

MAYOR HUNSCHOFSKY. YES, PLEASE, SHOW THAT IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY, ITEM NINE D.

YES. ORDINANCE NUMBER 2020 007.

THE IMPACT FEE ORDINANCE CREATING AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF PARKLAND, FLORIDA AMENDING APPENDIX B LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE, ARTICLE THIRTY FIVE, AMENDING AND INCREASING THE IMPACT FEE CHARGED TO NEW DEVELOPMENT, SPECIFICALLY COMBINING POLICE AND FIRE AND REC IMPACT.

THE INCREASING THE LIBRARY IMPACT FEE AND THE GENERAL GOVERNMENT FACILITIES IMPACT FEE.

REVISING LANGUAGE TO COMPLY WITH THE FLORIDA STATUTES.

REVISING LANGUAGE WITH RESPECT TO THE IMPLEMENTATION AND ADMINISTRATION OF IMPACT FEES.

CONTAINING A PROVISION FOR INCLUSION IN THE CITY CODE.

PROVIDING FOR ENFORCEMENT, PROVIDING FOR CONFLICT, PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY AND PROVIDING FOR THIS ITEM HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO YOU SEVERAL TIMES FOR DISCUSSION, AS IN OUR LAST MEETING REVISED IMPACT STUDY THAT VALIDATES THE INCREASES AND EXISTING IMPACT FEES.

THANK YOU, NANCY, AND I JUST WANT TO WE'VE HAD THIS DISCUSSION IN THE PAST, THE CITY IS STILL NOT GOING FORWARD WITH A PUBLIC ART IMPACT FEE AT THIS TIME, IS THAT CORRECT? THAT IS CORRECT. OK.

I STILL BELIEVE THAT THIS IS SOMETHING THE CITY SHOULD BE CONSIDERING, ESPECIALLY WITH FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS SO THAT THERE IS ALSO A PUBLIC ART IMPACT FEE.

AND WITH THAT, I WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, ANYONE FROM THE PUBLIC TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM. SEEING NO ONE FROM THE PUBLIC I'M CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC AND OPENING TO THE COMMISSION. COMMISSIONER KAGAN. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE AND I DO AGREE WITH YOU ON THE PUBLIC ART IMPACT FEE.

VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN. NANCY, WHAT WOULD IT TAKE FOR US TO PUT IN A PUBLIC IMPACT FEE? PUBLIC ART IMPACT FEE IT WOULD REQUIRE A SMALL STUDY TO SEE IF THERE'S REASONING, BUT THERE REALLY WAS NO FOUNDATION IN OUR CITY, SO WE HAVE THE CONSULTANT LOOK AT IT.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE COULDN'T AT LEAST I MEAN DO THE STUDY AND THEN MAKE THAT DETERMINATION. CORRECT. RIGHT.

USUALLY YOU HAVE A NEED AND YOU HAVE A PROGRAM ALREADY SET WITH A CAPITAL BUDGET THAT JUSTIFIES THE IMPACT FEE FUTURE.

AND WE DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING IN PLACE FOR FUTURE ARTS.

AND THAT WAS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS, NOT THAT WE CAN CHANGE, THAT WE CAN DO A PLAN FOR OUR FUTURE, AND ONCE WE GO TO STRATEGIC PLANNING, IF THAT'S THE DESIRE OF THE COMMISSION, AND THEN WE COULD PLAN ON WHAT TYPE OF PUBLIC ART WE'D LIKE TO FUND, PUT IT IN A CAPITAL PLAN. AND THAT WAY WE'LL HAVE PROPER JUSTIFICATION TO COLLECT AN IMPACT FEE.

AND THE ONLY REASON I BRING THIS UP IS THIS WAS I BROUGHT THIS UP AT OUR STRATEGIC PLANNING OVER A YEAR AGO OR SOMETHING LIKE WHERE WE HAVE A ROUNDABOUT THAT WE'RE COMING IN ON UNIVERSITY DRIVE OR OTHER PLACES.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY, IN MY OPINION, A NEED FOR PUBLIC ART AS FAR AS BEAUTIFICATION OF THE CITY, ESPECIALLY AS THE CITY CONTINUES TO GROW.

AND IT WOULD BE GREAT IF DEVELOPMENT WOULD HELP PAY FOR THAT.

[01:10:03]

ANYONE ELSE BUT WE HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER KAGAN.

DO I HAVE A SECOND. FOR TO ADD THE IMPACT FEE FOR PUBLIC ART, RIGHT? WE DON'T HAVE THE.

THIS IS JUST FOR THE CURRENT IMPACT FEE THIS IS JUST ON THE ORDINANCE BEFORE YOU.

I HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER KAGAN AND A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

ROLL CALL, PLEASE. COMMISSIONER KAGAN.

COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

YES. VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN.

YES. COMMISSIONER WALKER.

YES.

MAYOR HUNSCHOFSKY. YES, PLEASE SHOW THAT IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

AND ONCE AGAIN, LIKE I SAID, THIS IS SOMETHING I BROUGHT UP TO THE STRATEGIC PLANNING OVER A YEAR AND A HALF AGO.

AND MAYBE IF WE HAD HAD SOMETHING IN PLACE, WE WOULD BE ABLE TO DO SOME IMPACT FEES IN ORDER TO HELP FUND SOME ART IN SOME OF OUR COMMON AREAS.

ITEM 9E HAS BEEN TABLED NOW ITEM 9 F.

YES, RESOLUTION NUMBER 2020 059 FOUR SEASONS, MODEL ROW RELOCATION, A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COMMISSION OF PARKLAND, FLORIDA, APPROVING A SITE PLAN AMENDMENT AND COMMUNITY WITHIN THE FOUR SEASONS COMMUNITY AND TO APPROVE MODIFICATIONS TO THE CLUBHOUSE PARCEL TO ACCOMMODATE TEMPORARY PARKING FOR MODEL ROW AND PEDESTRIAN CONNECTIONS GENERALLY LOCATED WITHIN THE FOUR SEASONS COMMUNITY, LOCATED SOUTH OF LOXAHATCHEE ROAD AND EAST OF I'LL TURN THIS OVER TO MICHELE MELLGREN.

AND THANK YOU. AND KAITLYN FORBES HAS JOINED US THIS EVENING AND SHE'LL BE MAKING THIS PRESENTATION AND WE'LL BE HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

KAITLYN, ARE YOU ON? YES, I'M HERE. THANK YOU, MICHELE.

CAN EVERYONE HEAR ME. OK, GREAT.

GOOD EVENING, MADAM MAYOR.

MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION, KAITLYN FORBES WITH THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT, AS MICHEL MENTIONED, WE HAVE A CYCLING AMENDMENT AND COMMUNITY APPEARANCE BOARD APPLICATION SUBMITTED BY THE FOUR SEASONS COMMUNITY WITHIN THE WEDGE.

TONIGHT'S APPROVAL WILL PERMIT THE APPLICANT TO RELOCATE THE MODEL ROW INCLUSIVE OF THE SALE CENTER, RELOCATE THE CONSTRUCTION TRAILER AND REVISE THE CLUBHOUSE PARCEL TO ACCOMMODATE PEDESTRIAN ACCESS TO THE MODEL ROW.

NOW, IF YOU CAN GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THIS SLIDE WILL FAMILIARIZE YOU WITH THE FOUR SEASONS SITE PLAN AMENDMENT, MORE SO FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PUBLIC HERE AND THEN THE NEXT SLIDE.

THE ITEM THAT'S IN GREEN SHOW YOU WHERE THE CURRENT TRAILER AND THE CURRENT MODEL ROW ARE LOCATED AND IN THE BLUE NOTES THERE, YOU'LL SEE WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO BE RELOCATED.

SO THEY'RE SHIFTING THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY AND WE'LL ZOOM IN IN THE NEXT COUPLE SLIDES TO SEE THOSE IN MORE DETAIL.

SO HERE'S THE PROPOSED SITE PLAN FOR MODEL ROW.

AS WE NOTED EARLIER, THIS IS GOING TO BE A PEDESTRIAN ACCESS ONLY FOR THE MODEL ROW.

SO VISITORS WILL ACTUALLY PARK IN THE EXISTING CLUBHOUSE PARKING LOT AND THEN WALK OVER THROUGH THAT SERPENTINE PEDESTRIAN CONNECTION THERE TO THE SALES CENTER, WHICH IS THE SOUTHERNMOST MODEL ROW HOME.

AND THESE IMPROVEMENTS WILL BE TEMPORARY WITHIN THE CLUBHOUSE PARKING AREA, AND THE MODEL ROW IMPROVEMENTS WILL, OF COURSE, BE REMOVED UPON CLOSURE AND SALE OF THE MODEL HOMES.

THE MODEL ROW IS GATED AT THE FRONT OF THAT SALE CENTER AREA.

THERE YOU CAN SEE THE SWING GATES THERE.

AND ONE OF THE CONDITIONS WILL BE TO INCLUDE A KNOX BOX ON THAT GATE.

NEXT THING YOU KNOW, WE ZOOM INTO THE CLUBHOUSE CONNECTION, IT SHOWS THE ENHANCED LANDSCAPING IN THAT PEDESTRIAN CONNECTION.

SO OVERALL, ENHANCING THE CLUBHOUSE, PARKING AND MODIFYING ONE SPACE TO ACCOMMODATE ADA PARKING. ONE THING OF NOTE IS THIS COMMUNITY WAS APPROVED UNDER WHAT WE CALL THE OLD CODE. IF YOU REMEMBER, IN THE MOST RECENT ROUND OF CODE UPDATES, WE INCLUDED NEW PARKING STANDARDS FOR CLUBHOUSE PARKING BECAUSE WE'VE SEEN DEFICIENCY IN PARKING AT THE CLUBHOUSE. BUT SINCE THIS IS A TEMPORARY PARKING NEEDS THAT HAS NO CONCERNS WITH THE ALLOCATION OF PARKING FOR THE SALES CENTER USE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. THANK YOU.

WE HAVE THE PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION TRAILER SITE AND HERE AGAIN, IT'S TOP DOWN IN THE VERY SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THE COMMUNITY, OUT OF THE WAY.

AND JUST AS A NOTE, WE'RE KIND OF AS WE'RE SWITCHING THINGS AROUND THE CURRENT MODEL ROW OR THE CURRENT CONSTRUCTION TRAILER IS LOCATED WHERE THE NEW MODEL ROW WILL BE.

SO THAT NECESSITATED THE SHIFT.

[01:15:04]

AND THE NEXT SLIDE WILL SHOW WHAT THE APPLICANTS SUBMITTED IN TERMS OF A PROPOSED TIMELINE FOR ALL OF THE IMPROVEMENTS, THE TASKS IN RED HAVE ALREADY BEEN COMPLETED.

AND THEN YOU CAN SEE THE TASKS IN GREEN ARE WHAT THEY PROPOSED.

THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL SLIGHTLY MODIFY THOSE TIMELINES SHOWN THERE AND WE'LL GO THROUGH THOSE AT THE END OF THE POWERPOINT.

THANK YOU NED.

THIS SLIDE SHOWS THE NOOR BOULEVARD CONNECTION, WHICH IS THAT EAST WEST COMMUNITY ENTRANCE THAT TIES INTO A PIT ROAD AND SUBSEQUENTLY TO LOXAHATCHEE ROAD.

THIS WAS A TOPIC OF DISCUSSION AT P AND Z AND THE WE TALKED WITH THE APPLICANT IN THE APPLICANT ELECTED TO GO AHEAD AND CLOSE NOOR BOULEVARD TO PUBLIC ACCESS AS OPPOSED TO IMPROVING ONE THING THAT WE WILL ADDRESS IN THE CONDITION OF APPROVAL OR HAVE ADDRESSED IN THE CONDITION OF APPROVAL IS THAT RESIDENT AND VISITOR ACCESS WILL NO LONGER BE PERMITTED.

BUT CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC WILL BE AND OF COURSE, EMERGENCY ACCESS AND THE PLANS FOR THAT CLOSURE WILL NEED TO BE REVIEWED AND APPROVED BY THE CITY.

THOSE HAVE NOT BEEN SUBMITTED AT THIS TIME AS A CONDITION OF APPROVAL OR A REVISED CONDITION OF APPROVAL SINCE P&Z.

AND STAFF DOES RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF BOTH THE SITE PLAN AND THE CAB, SUBJECT TO A HANDFUL OF CONDITIONS, THE FIRST CONDITION BEING THAT ALL PREVIOUS CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL CONTAINED IN ANY ORDINANCES OR RESOLUTIONS ARE NOT AFFECTED, EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY ADDRESSED HERE IN.

NUMBER TWO, YOU'LL SEE AS HAS BEEN STRUCK.

THERE'S A REPLACEMENT FOR THAT CONDITION AT THE BACK END OF THE SLIDE SHOW.

AND WE'LL REVIEW THE REVISED CONDITION FOR NUMBER TWO.

AGAIN, THAT'S PERTAINING TO THE NOOR BOULEVARD ENTRANCE.

AND THAT WAS REVISED FOR DISCUSSION AT P&Z.

YOU CAN GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

THIS CONDITION, NUMBER THREE, WAS ALSO REVISED BASED ON DISCUSSION AND RESIDENT CONCERN AT P&Z, SO CONDITION NUMBER THREE NOW READS, WITHIN 90 DAYS OF COMPLETION OF THEIR PROPOSED MODEL ROW, THE APPLICANT SHALL REMOVE THE EXISTING PERIMETER MODEL ROW OF FENCING AND ENSURE ALL MODEL ROW LOTS AND ASSOCIATED PARKING LOTS ARE BROUGHT TO PAD GRADE. THE TIMING ON THAT HAS BEEN SHIFTED FROM WHAT WAS ORIGINALLY PROPOSED.

SO NOW WE'RE WITHIN THAT 90 DAYS OF COMPLETION OF THE PROPOSED MODEL ROW JUST TO ENSURE THAT EVERYTHING IS DONE IN A TIMELY MANNER FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE.

I WAS CLOSED AND THEY ARE CLOSING OUT THE COMMUNITY, THE APPLICANT ROW AREA AND REMOVE ALL TEMPORARY IMPROVEMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE MODEL WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE SALE. THE LAST MODEL HOME THIS SHALL INCLUDE THE RESTORATION OF THE COURTHOUSE PARKING, AS WE DISCUSSED BEFORE, TO ITS ORIGINAL APPROVED PARKING SCHEMATIC PLAN.

AND ADDITIONAL LANDSCAPING MAY REMAIN FEASIBLE IN THE PLANT MATERIALS HEALTHY.

AND THAT WILL BE, OF COURSE, INSPECTED AND DEEMED BY OUR CITY LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT.

NUMBER FIVE. ALL PROPOSED LIGHTING SHALL MATCH EXISTING APPROVED LIGHT POLES WITHIN THE COMMUNITY, THE LIGHTING PLAN SHALL BE REVIEWED PRIOR TO THE ISSUANCE OF THE FIRST BUILDING PERMIT JUST TO ENSURE THAT ALL OF THE STANDARDS MEET THAT THOSE WITHIN THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE, NUMBER SIX, PRIOR TO THE ISSUANCE OF A PERMIT, THE APPLICANT SHALL COORDINATE WITH THE CITY ENGINEER TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMAL LOCATION FOR AIR CONDITIONING UNITS RELATING TO THE MODEL ROW HOMES TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE WITH THE STANDARDS SET FORTH IN SECTION 20 30.

AND THAT'S THE ORDINANCE SECTION THAT TALKS ABOUT DRAINAGE AND THE RELATION OF AIR CONDITIONING UNITS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE NOT NEGATIVELY IMPACTING DRAINAGE WITHIN THESE COMMUNITIES. NUMBER SEVEN, PRIOR TO THE ISSUANCE OF A PERMIT, THE CITY SHALL REVIEW ALL PROPOSED STRUCTURAL SET BACK JUST ENSURING THAT THE MODEL ROW HOMES DO COMPLY WITH THE PRD STANDARDS, AND NUMBER EIGHT, THE APPLICANT SHALL NOTES THE REQUIREMENTS OF SECTION 115 40, WHICH REGULATES TEMPORARY SIGNAGE.

TEMPORARY SIGNS ARE EXEMPT FROM PERMITTING SO LONG AS THEY MEET THE STANDARDS OF THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE. NUMBER NINE.

MODEL ROW, WE DISCUSSED THAT EARLIER.

NUMBER 10, THE CITY SHALL INSPECT ALL THE LANDSCAPING ON A PERIODIC BASIS.

THAT'S A STANDARD EDITION WE SEE IN ALL RESOLUTIONS.

SAME WITH 11 AND 12 JUST PERTAINING TO COMPLIANCE WITH THE SITE PLAN AND PAYMENTS TO THE CITY. JUST QUICKLY, THE LAST SLIDE HERE.

IS THE REVISED CONDITION NUMBER TWO WITHIN 90 DAYS OF COMPLETION OF THE PROPOSED MODEL

[01:20:03]

ROW, THE APPLICANT SHALL CLOSE NOOR ROAD FOR RESIDENT AND VISITOR ACCESS.

THE DESIGN OF THE CLOSURE METHOD SHALL BE APPROVED BY THE CITY.

THIS IS NOT TO ELIMINATE OR RESTRICT CONSTRUCTION ACCESS TO THE SITE.

AND AGAIN, THIS WAS BASED ON A REVISION REQUESTED AT THE 90 DAYS SHOWN HERE.

REALLY NICELY TO THE 90 DAYS GIVEN TO BRING THE MODEL ROW LOTS UP TO GRADE, SO IT JUST MAKES IT A LITTLE EASIER ADMINISTRATIVELY WHILE ALSO GIVING THE APPLICANT A REALISTIC TIME FRAME FOR COMPLETION.

AND THAT CONCLUDES OUR PRESENTATION.

MICHELE AND I ARE BOTH AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS, AND I BELIEVE THE APPLICANT ALSO HAS REPRESENTATION AVAILABLE.

THANK YOU. I WAS TOLD THAT WE HAD MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM. AND WITH THAT, I WOULD LIKE TO OPEN TO MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC.

YOU ARE ON THE PUBLIC, AND YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. YES.

I BELIEVE THE APPLICANT IS HERE.

WOULD YOU WANT HIM TO MAKE A PRESENTATION OR STATEMENT BEFORE IT GOES TO PUBLIC COMMENT? IN THE MEANTIME, IF YOU ARE FROM THE PUBLIC AND YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THE AGENDA ITEM, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HANDS.

THANK YOU. MR. TOOMA. HELLO, MAYOR SEVERAL MONTHS, VERY SHORT PRESENTATION, THE SAME NAME I HAVE WITH ME TO REPRESENTATIVES OF JUST A QUICK THINGS TO ADD ON TO.

I DON'T NEED TO DO A POWERPOINT.

A COUPLE OF QUICK THINGS TO ADD ON IN REGARDS TO SALES.

RICHARD HAD TOLD ME TODAY THAT SALES HAVE BEEN GOING VERY WELL IN FOUR SEASONS AND IN FACT, THREE OF THE MODEL HOME SITES ARE ACTUALLY UNDER CONTRACT AND SCHEDULED TO BE CLOSED IN OCTOBER.

SO YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THAT PROCESS MORE READILY ALONG.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL HAPPILY RESPOND TO ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE OR AFTER THE PUBLIC COMMENT. THANK YOU.

SO WITH THAT, I ONCE AGAIN OPEN TO THE PUBLIC IF ANYBODY FROM THE PUBLIC WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND.

SEEING NO ONE FROM THE PUBLIC I AM CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC AND OPENING TO THE COMMISSION.

COMMISSIONER KAGAN. I KNOW THAT THERE IS A RESIDENT FROM THE FOUR SEASONS THAT WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK.

I HAVE OPENED TWICE TO THE PUBLIC COMMISSIONER KAGAN AND IN THE MEANTIME, WE WILL NOW GO TO THE COMMISSION IF SOMEBODY FROM THE PUBLIC WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK, I AM ASKING THEM TO RAISE THEIR HANDS. COMMISSIONER KAGAN DO YOU HAVE COMMENTS? I SEE THINGS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY THAN WHAT I'M HEARING.

WE APPRECIATE ALL OF THE WORK THAT STAFF AS WELL AS HOWEVER, AFTER LOOKING AT THE DOCUMENTS, I BELIEVE THAT WITHIN 90 DAYS OF OPENING A NEW SALE CENTER, THE APPLICANT SHOULD REMOVE THE EXISTING PERIMETER FENCE.

MODEL ROW NOW FENCING AND ENSURE ALL MODEL ROW LOCKS AND ASSOCIATED PARKING LOTS ARE BROUGHT TO PAD GRADE.

SO THERE SEEMS TO BE SOME CONFUSION.

SO WHEN THEY OPEN UP THE NEW MODELS AND SALES CENTER, IT'S NOT AT THE END OF OPENING MODEL ROW. IT SHOULD BE AT 90 DAYS AFTER THE SALE CENTER IS OPEN.

SO I THINK THERE WAS SOME CONFUSION.

AND AT THE MEETING, KEVIN COMPLETION OF THE SALE CENTER, NOT MODEL ROW, THE APPLICANT WILL REMOVE ALL PERIMETER FENCING AND THE GRADING WILL BE BROUGHT TO PAD GRADE.

THIS WOULD ALSO INCLUDE THE PARKING LOT.

AND I JUST GOT A TEXT FROM THE RESIDENT WHO KEEPS TRYING TO SPEAK AND HE HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO. SO I KNOW THAT THERE IS A RESIDENT THAT WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO MR. SALERNO. BUT I THINK THAT THE RESIDENT SHOULD NOT HAVE TO WAIT FOR AN ENTIRE MODEL ROW TO BE BUILT WHEN IT WAS CLEARLY DISCUSSED AT THE MEETING, AND THAT SHOULD BE DONE WITHIN 90 DAYS OF THE OPENING OF THE SALES CENTER, NOT THE MODEL ROW.

NO REASON TO HAVE TWO SALES CENTERS.

AND I SEE THE RESIDENT ON THE SCREEN RIGHT NOW.

HELLO MAYOR, CAN YOU HEAR ME AND SEE ME? YES. WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU.

ALL RIGHT, I APOLOGIZE.

IS IT ALL RIGHT FOR ME TO SPEAK AT THIS POINT, WE WERE WITH THE COMMISSION, BUT WE WILL GO TO THE PUBLIC. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU, MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS, FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK TO THIS MATTER.

MY NAME IS PAT SALERNO.

MY WIFE AND I LIVE AT 9432 WE LIVE IN THE HOME CLOSEST TO THE EXISTING SALES CENTER TRAILER AND PARKING LOT.

[01:25:03]

THERE ARE ABOUT 20 HOMES THAT ARE AFFECTED BY THIS DECISION.

PRIOR TO PURCHASING MY HOME, I WAS TOLD BY AND PARKING LOT WOULD BE REMOVED AND THE SITE BROUGHT TO FINAL GRADE WHEN THE NEW SALES CENTER IS OPEN, EMPHASIZING HERE THE WORD OPEN.

I SPOKE AT THE P&Z MEETING ON AUGUST 13 WHEN THE LANGUAGE CALLED FOR THE SALES CENTER TRAILING AND TO BE REMOVED.

WHEN THE EXISTING MODELS ARE CLOSED.

I SAID THAT I DID NOT KNOW WHY THE RESTORATION OF THIS AREA WAS TIED IN SOME WAY TO THE EXISTING MODELS.

KEN TOOMA AGENT FOR THE APPLICANT SAID THAT WAS NOT THEIR INTENT.

KEVIN AFTER COMPLETION OF THE NEW SALES CENTER.

THE APPLICANT WILL REMOVE THE EXISTING SALES CENTER TRAILER IN THE PARKING LOT AND BRING THE SITE TO PAD GRADE.

THE BOARD SUPPORTED THIS CHANGE.

HOWEVER, THE LANGUAGE IN SECTION TWO, PARAGRAPH THREE OF THE RESOLUTION BEFORE YOU SAYS THAT WITHIN 90 DAYS OF COMPLETION OF THE PROPOSED MODEL ROW, THE EXISTING SALES CENTER WILL BE RESTORED. I BROUGHT THIS MATTER TO DISTRICT ONE COMMISSIONER STACY KAGAN'S ATTENTION, AND SHE RECOGNIZED THE IMPORTANCE TO US HERE IN THE FOUR SEASONS.

TO BE CLEAR AND CONSISTENT WITH THE INTENT OF P&Z AND KEVIN LANGUAGE MY OPINION IS WITHIN 90 DAYS OF OPENING THE PROPOSED SALES CENTER THE APPLICANT SHALL REMOVE THE EXISTING SALES CENTER AND PERIMETER MODEL ROW FENCING AND ENSURE ALL MODELS ROW LOTS AND ASSOCIATED PARKING LOTS ARE BROUGHT TO PAD GRADE.

THE DIFFERENCE HERE BEING I AM ASKING AND BELIEVE IT WAS THE INTENT THAT IT SHOULD BE TIED TO THE OPENING OF THE SALES CENTER, NOT TIED TO THE COMPLETION OF THE ENTIRE MODEL ROW. BY THE WAY, THE DEVELOPER ALREADY HAS REMOVED THE PERIMETER FENCING SEVERAL WEEKS AGO, ACTING AS IF IT WAS ALREADY APPROVED BY THE COMMISSION, WHICH IT HAS NOT.

MY PROPOSED CLARIFICATION WILL PROTECT THE RESIDENTS FROM THE DEVELOPER LEAVING THIS UNSIGHTLY SALES CENTER TRAILER AND PARKING LOT ANY LONGER THAN NECESSARY AND SHOULDN'T IN ANYWAY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

AND WITH THAT, ANYBODY ELSE FROM THE PUBLIC LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM? SEEING NO ONE FROM THE PUBLIC, I'M CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC, MICHELE.

ARE WE ABLE TO CHANGE THE LANGUAGE SO THAT IT REFLECTS? WE CERTAINLY CAN AND IT WAS OUR INTENT TO MEET THE CONCERN OF MR. SALERNO I SHOULD JUST CLARIFY, AS I UNDERSTAND IT AND CAN TO CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG.

THE NEW MODEL ROW WILL BE THE SALES CENTER.

IT'S ONE OF THE SAME. THEY'RE ONE OF THE UNITS IS THE SALES CENTER.

THAT'S CORRECT.

SO, YEAH, I THINK JUST TO MAKE EVERYTHING VERY CLEAR AND THIS IS WHY IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT. AND WE'VE SAID THIS TIME AND TIME AGAIN FROM STAFF THAT THE MINUTES FROM THE P&Z MEETINGS ARE ACCOMPANIED IN OUR PACKETS.

THAT I JUST IF WE COULD JUST SAY THAT IT'S THE SALES CENTER SO THAT THERE'S NO SECOND OR THIRD HOME ON MODEL ROW AND THE EXCUSE BEING THAT THOSE AREN'T FINISHED AND THEREFORE WE'RE NOT REQUIRED, LET'S MAKE SURE THAT IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT IT IS THE SALES CENTER AND MODEL ROW, THOUGH NOT ALL OF MODEL ROW.

JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY'S VERY CLEARLY ON THIS ONE.

ABSOLUTELY, MAYOR. AGAIN, THANK YOU, MAYOR, FOR CLEARLY EXPLAINING THAT AND THANK YOU PAT FOR SPEAKING. I JUST WANT TO REITERATE THAT IF IT'S AT ALL POSSIBLE FOR THAT FIRST HOME OR WHATEVER HOME THEY'RE BUILDING, FIRST, FOR THAT TO BE THE SALES CENTER.

SO IT'S THE LEAST AMOUNT OF TIME THAT THE RESIDENTS WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE CONSTRUCTION AND THE BACK AND FORTH, AND THEN THEY CAN START ON COMPLETING THE AREA BECAUSE THAT IS GOING TO IMPACT AT LEAST 20 HOMES SURROUNDING.

[01:30:01]

THAT WOULD BE A VERY IMPORTANT THING FOR THE RESIDENTS WHO DO LIVE THERE.

VICE MAYOR.

BUT I'M HAPPY TO ADDRESS THAT WE ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THE SALES CENTER ITSELF THEY ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION FOR HOMES OUT THERE.

BUT IN FAIRNESS, I THINK WHAT ONE SALES CENTER IS READY TO CLOSE, THE OTHER SALES CENTER SHOULD OPEN UP AND THAT THEY WOULD USE THAT THEY WOULD ACTUALLY COMMISSIONER KAGAN WOULD BE THE ACTUAL SALES THAT ARE NOT THE HOMES THAT ARE ONE OF THEM IS A HOME BEING CONSTRUCTED WHICH WILL BE A SALES THAT ARE BUT NOT THE OTHER HOMES THAT THEY WOULD HAVE.

OBVIOUSLY, OUR INTEREST IS TO GET THE SALES CENTER OPEN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

I THINK THE COMMENT IS THAT THE SALES CENTER BE THE FIRST HOME ON THE MODEL HOME ROW.

YES, THAT IS CORRECT. IS THAT SOMETHING YOU CAN COMMIT TO, MR. CAN HEAR ME. YES, GO AHEAD.

KEVIN 3601 QUANTUM BOULEVARD, BOYNTON BEACH, FLORIDA.

THE CONCERN THAT WE HAVE WITH THE LANGUAGE THAT WAS JUST PROPOSED IS THE SALES CENTER IS ONE OF THE HOMES, LIKE KEN SAID, BUT IT IS NOT GOING TO BE THE FIRST HOME THAT WE BUILD.

WE'RE STILL BUILDING. IT'S GOING TO BE AN OFFICE BUILDING.

IT'S PROBABLY ONE OF THE LAST PERMITS WE GET OUT.

SO I REALLY HAVE.

AND LIKE I SAID, WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO MOVE FROM ONE SALES OFFICE TO THE NEXT SALES OFFICE WITHOUT LOSING A BEAT ON OUR SALES PROCESS OR PROCEDURES.

SO IF THEY WENT TO THE FIRST HOME THAT WOULDN'T ALLOW US TO HAVE OUR SALES OFFICE OPEN.

AGAIN, THANK YOU, KEVIN, I UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU'RE COMING FROM, BUT IF YOU ONLY HAVE CERTAIN MODELS THAT YOU'RE NO LONGER BUILDING AND YOU'RE BUILDING NEW MODELS ON THE OTHER SIDE, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO TRANSPORT PEOPLE FROM ONE SALES CENTER TO ANOTHER? HOW ARE YOU GOING TO BE SHOWING THE MODELS? AND IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE THAT YOU'D HAVE ONE OPEN ON ONE SIDE AND EVERYTHING IS NOT COMPLETED ON THE OTHER SIDE.

SO HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND HOW THAT HOW THAT WOULD WORK.

WELL, THE CURRENT PRODUCT THAT WE HAVE, THE 70 FOOT MODELS ARE NEXT TO OUR CURRENT EXISTING MODEL CENTER WILL STILL BE SHOWN FROM THE SALES OFFICE, THE THE NEW MODELS THAT WE WOULD BE PROPOSING TO PUT ON THE NEW LOCATION.

WE WOULD TAKE THE CUSTOMERS FROM THE SALES CENTER OVER TO THE GOLF CART THAT WE HAVE TO SHOW THEM THE NEW MODELS UNTIL THAT SALES OFFICE IS OPEN.

THAT'S GOING TO CAUSE A LOT OF.

A LOT OF CONFUSION FOR THE RESIDENTS THAT LIVE THERE.

IT'S GOING TO CAUSE A LOT MORE TRAFFIC AND IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE THAT IT WOULD HAVE TO CONTINUE TO BE IN THAT WAY.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO MAKE THAT WORK BETTER FOR THE RESIDENTS, BECAUSE HERE THEY ARE LIVING IN A CONSTRUCTION ZONE AND I WOULD THINK THAT YOU WOULD WANT TO BE ABLE TO SELL THOSE LOTS THAT ARE SURROUNDING IT AND PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE MOVING INTO THOSE HOMES.

YOU JUST MENTIONED YOU HAD THREE THAT ARE UNDER CONTRACT FOR OCTOBER.

THAT'S GOING TO BE A VERY AWKWARD SPOT FOR ALL OF THE RESIDENTS THAT ARE THERE EXISTING.

AND IT'S GOING TO BE A VERY FRUSTRATING SITUATION.

I LOVE WHERE YOU'RE PUTTING THE NEW MODELS BECAUSE I THINK THAT WILL HELP TREMENDOUSLY WITH LOOKING AT YOUR BEAUTIFUL CLUBHOUSE AND TENNIS COURTS AND EVERYTHING THAT'S AND THE POOL AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT'S OVER THERE.

BUT I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IT WOULD HAVE TO DELAY AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE TRANSPORTING PEOPLE BACK AND FORTH.

AND THERE ARE RESIDENTS THAT DO HAVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IF THEY'RE ABLE TO SPEAK OR NOT.

MAYOR? COMMENT ON THAT, BUT I'M NOT HAPPY WITH THAT AT ALL KEVIN.

SO THIS IS RICH BOULEVARD. COMMISSIONER KAGAN AND THE TEAM CAN I ANSWER SOME OF YOUR QUESTIONS, IF THAT'S OK. OK, GREAT.

I OVERSEE THE PROPERTY AS WELL AS THE SALES AND MARKETING EFFORTS FOR OUR DIVISION.

AND I'M THE AREA VICE PRESIDENT OVERSEEING THAT AREA.

AND TO CLARIFY AND I THINK I CAN CLARIFY TO HELP YOU, COMMISSIONER KAGAN, AS WELL AS MR. SALERNO, OUR INTENTION AND I'LL BE GLAD TO WORK WITH LANGUAGE ON THIS, IS THAT WE WANT TO DECOMMISSION THE CURRENT SALES ENVIRONMENT, COINCIDING WITH MOVING TO THE NEW ENVIRONMENT. OBVIOUSLY, WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO CONDUCT OUR BUSINESS.

WE ARE GOING TO BE SELLING OFF THE MODELS AND BUILDING NEW MODELS, THE MODELS AND THE SALES CENTER WILL BE RUNNING A CONCURRENT SCHEDULE WITHIN A COUPLE OF DAYS OF ONE ANOTHER. AS KEVIN MENTIONED, WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE PERMIT ON THE SALES CENTER.

ONCE THAT SALES CENTER IS READY FOR OCCUPANCY, WE WANT TO MOVE INTO THAT IMMEDIATELY AND THEN TO DECOMMISSION THE EXISTING MODELS, AS YOU MENTIONED, WHERE WE HAVE THREE OF THEM

[01:35:03]

SOLD AND WE ARE READY TO SELL ANOTHER FIVE OF THEM ONCE WE COMPLETE THE DRIVEWAYS AND THE EXTERIOR LANDSCAPE THAT HAS TO BE DONE THAT WILL LEAVE US WITH ONLY FOUR MODEL HOMES AND THE TRAILER AND THE PARKING LOT THAT WOULD HAVE TO BE BROUGHT TO GRADE.

AND THOSE ARE THE HOMES THAT ARE CLOSEST TO MR. SALERNO'S RESIDENCE ON THAT SAME SIDE OF THE STREET.

WE ARE COMFORTABLE THAT ONCE WE GET INTO OUR NEW SALES ENVIRONMENT, THAT TO BRING EVERYTHING UP TO GRADE, TO REMOVE THE TRAILERS AND THEN DECOMMISSION THE LAST FOUR MODEL HOMES ON THAT SIDE OF THE STREET THAT WILL BE DONE WITHIN THE 90 DAY PERIOD ONCE WE GET OVER. WE DO NOT INTEND TO BE DRIVING CUSTOMERS FROM AN EXISTING TRAILER INTO THE NEW MODEL SHOWN ON THE EXHIBITS.

SO THAT'S OUR INTENTION.

AND WE WOULD BE GLAD TO AGREE TO SOME LANGUAGE THAT LETS US HAVE THE 90 DAYS FROM WHEN OUR SALES CENTER OPENS AND USE THE MODELS WHEN THEY ARE BE THE SAME TIME AS THE SALES.

SO, ANDY, WHAT CAN WE DO TO EXPEDITE THAT? AND IS IT POSSIBLE FOR RESIDENTS WHO WANT TO SPEAK, TO SPEAK SINCE THE APPLICANT IS SPEAKING NOW? WELL, THE MAYOR AND THE COMMISSION, IF YOU WANT OTHER RESIDENTS TO SPEAK THAT'S FINE. NO ONE'S RAISING THEIR HANDS STACY.

THEY ARE ACTUALLY.

OK WHO ARE THE NEW RESIDENTS YEAH, OK. MR. SALERNO, JUST SO YOU KNOW, NORMALLY THE RULES ARE THREE MINUTES TO SPEAK.

I'M GOING TO ALLOW THIS EXCEPTION THIS TIME.

AND WE'RE GOING TO ASK FOR YOUR THREE MINUTES OF COMMENTS.

AND THEN WE ARE GOING TO BE CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC ON THIS ITEM.

THANK YOU. YOU'RE NOT UNMUTED, MR. SALERNO. WE CAN'T HEAR YOU, SIR.

BOTTOM LEFT OF YOUR SCREEN.

IS THERE ANY WAY WE CAN UNMUTE HIM FOR.

DO YOU HAVE OTHER COMMENTS, COMMISSIONER KAGAN, WHILE WE'RE WAITING FOR MR. SALERNO TO UNMUTE HIMSELF.

I WANT TO KNOW THAT WHATEVER WE DO CAN EXPEDITE THIS.

SO WHAT CAN WE DO TO EXPEDITE THE FACT THAT WE'RE DOING A NEW MODEL ROW OF WHICH THE ACTUAL SALES CENTER MODEL IS NOT GOING TO BE THE FIRST ONE.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO EXPEDITE THAT SO WE CAN CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT FOR THE RESIDENTS? I DO THINK HE IS UNMUTED NOW.

I'M BACK AGAIN. YES, WELL, MR. SALERNO, JUST ONE MINUTE, PLEASE ALLOW OUR PLANNING DIRECTOR TO ANSWER COMMISSIONER KAGAN'S MOST RECENT QUESTION.

ALL RIGHT. YES, THANK YOU.

SO TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION, I BELIEVE THAT I HEARD A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE HOUSE SAY THAT THEY ARE IN FOR THE PERMITS FOR THE UNIT THAT WILL SERVE AS A AS THE SALES CENTER.

HE SAID THAT IT WOULD BE COMMERCIAL AND OFFICE BUILDING.

IT IS NOT COMMERCIAL OR AN OFFICE BUILDING, BUT UNDER THE BUILDING CODE, IT MAY HAVE TO HAVE CERTAIN ATTRIBUTES.

I WANTED TO CLARIFY THAT IT'S GOING TO BE A RESIDENTIAL UNIT.

AS SOON AS THEY CAN GET THEIR BUILDING PERMIT, I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE STATUS OF IT IS AT THIS POINT. MAYBE SOMEONE CAN GET OUT.

HOW LONG'S IT BEEN IN OR HAVE YOU HAD COMMENTS BACK YET, WHAT IS THE STATUS OF IT? WE DO HAVE FEEDBACK AND WE'RE HOPING TO HAVE THE PERMIT BACK PROBABLY WITHIN THE NEXT TWO TO THREE WEEKS. IT'S ALREADY BEEN IN PROCESS.

THERE WERE COMMENTS. WE RESPONDED TO THOSE COMMENTS.

MR. SALERNO, I'M GOING TO ONCE AGAIN OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, I WOULD JUST ASK THAT THESE ARE THE FINAL THREE MINUTES.

WE ARE OUT OF ORDER.

I UNDERSTAND POSITION OF THE RESIDENTS.

SO PLEASE GIVE THREE MINUTES AND THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THE PARAGRAPH THREE OF THE RESOLUTION SAYS THAT WITHIN 90 DAYS OF COMPLETION OF THE PROPOSED MODEL ROW, THAT'S MULTIPLE HOMES, I THINK THE LANGUAGE I'M PROPOSING WOULD WORK FOR THE DEVELOPER BY CHANGING THE WORD COMPLETION TO OPENING OF THE PROPOSED SALES CENTER . NOW THE SALES CENTER IS ON LOT 472.

IT'S ALREADY DESIGNATED IN THEIR AMENDMENT TO BE ON 472.

[01:40:02]

SO IF THEY BUILD OTHER HOMES BEFORE AND BEFORE THEY OPEN 472, THAT'S FINE.

I UNDERSTAND THEY HAVE A NEED TO HAVE A WORKING OPERATING SALES CENTER.

SO I THINK MY LANGUAGE WILL ACCOMPLISH FOR THEM WHAT THEY NEED, WHICH IS TO CHANGE THE WORD COMPLETION TO OPENING AND HAVE IT READ.

WITHIN 90 DAYS OF OPENING THE PROPOSED SALES CENTER, THE APPLICANT SHALL REMOVE THE EXISTING SALES CENTER AND PERIMETER MODEL FENCING AND ENSURE ALL MODEL ROW LOTS AND ASSOCIATED PARKING LOTS ARE BROUGHT TO PAD GRADE THAT SHOULD ALLOW THEM ALL THE FLEXIBILITY THEY NEED BECAUSE IT ONLY ONLY STARTS TICKING THE 90 DAYS ONCE THEY HAVE COMPLETED AND OPENED THE NEW SALES CENTER, WHICH THEY CONTROL.

MR. SALERNO, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU.

THIS IS, AGAIN, DIFFERENT FROM MR. SALERNO IS NOT REQUESTING WHAT COMMISSIONER KAGAN WAS REQUESTING, THAT IT BE THE FIRST ONE TO OPEN. HE'S REQUESTING THAT IT BE OPENED NINETY DAYS FROM THE OPENING.

OF THE SALES CENTER.

MADAM MAYOR THAT THAT IS ACCEPTABLE TO US KEVIN IS SHAKING HIS HEAD.

MR. SALERNO, I WANT AND MR. SALERNO, I WANT TO THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN FOR THAT CLARIFICATION, THE CONFUSION, I GUESS, CAME UP WITH COMMISSIONER KAGAN'S REQUEST WITH THE SALE CENTER BEING COMPLETED FIRST. WE APPRECIATE YOU BEING INVOLVED IN THIS PROCESS, MR. SALERNO. COMMISSIONER KAGAN. THAT WAS MY ORIGINAL VERBIAGE EXACTLY.

BUT I DID HAVE A QUESTION BECAUSE I WANTED TO KNOW WHERE IT WAS ON THE HOW LONG THAT WOULD TAKE FOR THE SALES CENTER TO BE OPEN.

BUT THAT WAS MY EXACT REQUEST.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION FOR THAT, AS I STATED ORIGINALLY.

VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN.

THE ONLY QUESTION THAT I HAVE, AND AGAIN, I'M GOING TO MAKE AN ASSUMPTION THAT IF THIS IS NOT COMPLETED WITHIN 90 DAYS IS THAT THEN WE APPLY CODE ENFORCEMENT, IS THAT CORRECT NANCY. YES.

OK, I MEAN, I'M NOT GOING TO STOP IT, BUT I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS BECAUSE WE'VE HAD BEEN PAST THERE.

I KNOW THAT THERE'S ALWAYS THE INTENTION TO DO IT WITHIN 90 DAYS, BUT SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T WORK OUT THAT WAY, RESIDENTS GET VERY UPSET.

SO I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY UNDERSTANDS THAT IF THEY DO NOT, THEN CODE ENFORCEMENT IS OUR NEXT LINE OF DEFENSE.

UNLESS WE WANT TO MAKE SOMETHING ELSE.

THANK YOU, VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN, AND I THINK OUR EXPERIENCE WITH BEEN VERY GOOD IN THIS MANNER.

AND I APPRECIATE, AGAIN, LIKE I MENTIONED, MR. SALERNO FOR BEING ON HERE AND SHARING HIS CONCERNS AND I APPRECIATE AMENABLE TO THOSE CONCERNS.

AND WE HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER KAGAN.

SECOND. SECOND BY VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN.

ROLL CALL, PLEASE. COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

YES. COMMISSIONER WALKER.

YES. VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN.

YES, COMMISSIONER KAGAN.

YES. MAYOR HUNSCHOFSKY.

YES, PLEASE SHOW THAT IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU, SIR. FIRST OF ALL, AGAIN, CAPTAIN BROWARD SHERIFF'S OFFICE, PARKLAND DISTRICT.

PLEASE TAKE A LISTEN. IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY DONE SO AND REMIND THE RESIDENTS YOU SPEAK TO ON A REGULAR BASIS THAT IT'S OUT THERE, IT'S ANOTHER WAY FOR US TO TRY TO COMMUNICATE WITH EVERYBODY DURING THIS COVID SO THAT ANY QUESTIONS FROM ANYBODY? CHRIS, I JUST WANT TO SAY GREAT JOB ON THE PODCAST.
