DISCUSSION ABOUT CIVILITY. FIRST I WANT TO THANK THE CITIZENS OF THE COMMUNITY FOR

[00:08:50]

ALLOWING ME THE HONOR AND PRIVILEGE TO SERVE OUR COMMUNITY FOR ANOTHER FOUR YEARS AS COMMISSIONER FOR DISTRICT 3. I ENTERED INTO THIS POSITION WITH THE MINDSET OF DOING NOTHING MORE THAN GIVING BACK TO THE CITY THAT ERASED MY FAMILY IN AND THAT I HAVE TRULY COME TO LOVE.I CAN TELL YOU BOTH AS A STUDENT OF ITS HISTORY AND HAVING HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS, ASIDE SOME PRETTY EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE, MY FELLOW COMMISSIONERS, THE MAYOR AND AN AMAZING GROUP OF CARING STAFF MEMBERS AND LEADERS IN OUR COMMUNITY THAT THESE PEOPLE ARE ALL DEDICATED TO DOING WHAT IS BEST FOR THE CITY AND ITS RESIDENTS. WE AS A COMMUNITY HAVE BEEN THROUGH AN AWFUL LOT IN THE PLAST FOUR YEARS. THE ICING IS THE COVID CRISIS. IT HAS TAKEN ITS TOLL ON ALL OF US, PEOPLE ARE GETTING SICK, PEOPLE ARE DYING, PEOPLE WORRY DAY IN AND DAY OUT WHETHER THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE A JOB, WHETHER THEY ARE GOING TO BE ABLE TO SEND THEIR KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL, ALL KINDS OF ISSUES. COLLECTIVELY, I CAN TELL YOU IT HAS BEEN A GRIND.

NOW THE MIDST OF ALL THI COLLECTIVE PRESSURE, WE FIND OURSELVES IN A NATIONAL PRESSURE COOKER FOR DIVISIVENESS OVER THE ELECTION OF OUR PRESIDENT, THE CHALLENGES OF OUR ECONOMY, ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, POLICE AND RACIAL ISSUES AND MUCH,

[00:10:04]

MUCH MORE. ALL IF THAT IS NOT HAVING A HEAVY IMPACT ON EVERYDAY CIVILITY. PEOPLE ARE TENSE, THE BLURB DEPRESSED, IT WILL ARE SCARED.

HAT COLLECTIVE NATIONAL ATTENTION AND THE CONSTANT BARRAGE OF SOCIAL MEDIA AND NEWS CYCLES IS TAKING IS TOLL ON THAT CIVILITY. PEOPLE ARE DOWNRIGHT NASTY.

THEY ARE HATERS. IF YOU ARE NOT ON ONE TEAM OR ANOTHER, YOU ARE THE ENEMY.

OF YOUR ON THE OTHER TEAM YOU ARE A CROOK, YOU ARE DEPLORABLE.

LATELY I HAVE SEEN IT TRICKLE DOWN INTO OUR LOCAL POLITICS DEER PARK LENDERS, THE PEOPLE RUNNING FOR YOUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT FOR NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS.

THESE ARE CITIZENS STEPPING UP TO TRY TO BE OF SERVICE TO OUR COMMUNITY.

THEY LIVE HERE, THEY'VE BEEN VOLUNTEERS IN THE SCHOOLS, ETA MEMBERS, PART OF THE RELIGIOUS COMMUNITIES. OUR COACHES, SCOUT LEADERS AND THE CONTRIBUTORS TO LOCAL CHARITIES. WE SEE EACH OTHER'S AT PUBLIX, LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND SHOPS AND THE PARKS, LIBRARY MONOTONY COVID I'VE INSULATION, SOCIAL AND CHARITABLE EVENTS.

THE ISSUES IMPACT IS ALL THERE IN THE DECISIONS WE MAKE ARE DONE WITH THE HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELFARE OF ALL CITIZENS AND HEALTH OF OUR CITY IN MIND. THE IDEAL ANYONE WOULD GO AND GET ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND START BELITTLING AND DEGRADING OR DISPARAGING THE GOOD NAMES OF ANY LOCAL CANDIDATE OVER ANOTHER AND DOING SO IN THE NAME OF FREE SPEECH IS HORRIFYING TO ME. WE ARE ALL PARK LENDERS. WE ARE BETTER THAN THAT.

OUR CHILDREN SET AN EXAMPLE FOR THE WORLD AFTER THE MST TRAGEDY AND THEY DID SO WITH HONOR AND DIGNITY AND RESPECT. THEIR WORDS, THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS WERE CALCULATED TO DO GOOD. NOT HARM. LET US ALL TAKE AN EXAMPLE FROM THEN. INHIBIT THAT ONE PERSON IS A BETTER CHOICE THAN ANOTHER AND YOU ARE INCLINED TO SELL THE WORLD THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA OR SOME OTHER PUBLIC AVENUE, DO IT WITH RESPECT. DO IT WITH THE IDEA YOU ARE TEACHING YOUR CHILDREN THE RIGHT AND CIVIL WAY TO HAVE AN OPEN DISCOURSE OVER ISSUES THAT HAVE DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW.

WE ALL HAVE ENOUGH TO CONCERN US IN OUR DAILY LIVES.PEOPLE STEPPING UP TO LOCAL OFFICE ARE DOING SO BECAUSE THEY CARE. SHOW THEM. SHOW THE WORLD YOU DO TOO.

RUNNING FROM LOCAL OFFICE SHOULD NOT BE ABOUT WHICH LOCAL CITIZEN CAN TAKE THE CONSTANT BARRAGE OF HURTFUL WORDS THE MOST. THAT ONLY LEADS TO THE ELECTION OF AND IN DIFFERENT PEOPLE WHO DON'T CARE WHAT IS SAID ABOUT THEM.IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT IN OUR LEADERS? I CERTAINLY DON'T. HAVE UNTIL NOVEMBER TO ELECT OUR NEXT CANDIDATES INTO OFFICE. LET'S DO IT WITH CIVILITY AND HONOR. LET'S VOTE, LET'S PLEASE BE CIVIL AND DEPARTMENT PROPER IN

THAT'S ALL THE COMMENTS I HAVE TONIGHT >> THANK YOU COMMISSIONER

CUTLER. COMMISSIONER WALKER? >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

OBVIOUSLY I WANT TO CONGRATULATE YOU AS WELL. HE WILL MAKE A GREAT STATE REP.

GLAD YOU WILL BE REPRESENTING US. OBVIOUSLY I WANT TO ADDRESS WE HAVE LOST A GREAT LEADER IN RUTH BADER GINSBURG RICHIE HAS BEEN A GREAT ROLE MODEL FOR SO MANY PEOPLE AND IT IS A BIG LOSS FOR OUR COUNTRY. I WANT TO TOUCH ON WHAT KEN SAID. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THAT OUT.

AND THINK SOMETIMES PEOPLE LUCITE THAT WE HAVE TO SEE EACH OTHER EVERYDAY.

WHATEVER HAPPENS ON NOVEMBER 3, COME NOVEMBER 4 EVERYBODY WILL BE OUT THERE.

WHETHER IT IS THE FIELDS, PUBLIX, THE DIFFERENT RESTAURANTS AT THE SCHOOLS.

I THINK WE CAN'T LOSE SIGHT OF THAT THAT PARKLAND IS A GREAT PLACE AND WE SHOULD LOVE LIVING HERE AND WE SHOULD ACT IN THAT MANNER FORGET I APPRECIATE YOU FOR BRINGING THAT UP.

THAT WAS WELL SAID.THERE IS NO WAY I COULD SAY BETTER THAN HOW YOU SAID IT.

AND THAT IS ALL I HAVE FOR MY COMMENTS. >> THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER

WALKER. COMMISSIONER KEEGAN? >> THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I JUST WANT TO SAY CONGRATULATIONS. WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU.

YOU ARE GOING TO DO GREAT THINGS IN TALLAHASSEE. YOU HAVE DONE GREAT THINGS HERE IN PARKLAND AND WE CAN'T WAIT TO CONTINUE WORKING WITH YOU ON YOUR NEW ENDEAVOR AND YOU ARE

[00:15:02]

GOING TO DO GREAT THINGS FOR EVERYBODY AND THANK YOU. COMMISSIONER CUTLER, I HAVE TO SAY THAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS I HAVE EVER HEARD AND I COULDN'T SAY IT ANY BETTER. AND I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU BECAUSE IN THE WORDS OF BEING A TRUE PERSON AND TRUE DEMOCRACY AND TRUE HUMAN FEELINGS, THAT WAS SUCH A HUMANITARIAN BEAUTIFUL STATEMENT. I AM AT A LOSS OF WORDS.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT. THE ONLY OTHER THING I WANTED TO BRING UP IS THERE IS A LOVE AND CERTAINTY STILL GOING ON THE WORLD AND EVERYTHING IS SO INCREDIBLY FLUID RIGHT NOW.

WE HAVE FAMILIES CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE SCHOOLS, WE HAVE TEACHERS WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THAT ARE QUESTIONING WHETHER OR NOT THEY CAN AFFORD TO STAY HOME OR GO BACK TO SCHOOL, WE HAVE FAMILIES THAT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE ONE INCOME OR TWO INCOMES AND THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO DO AND WHAT CHOICES THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE GOING FORWARD WHEN THE SCHOOL BOARD COMES BACK WITH A FINAL DECISION.

SO EVERYBODY'S STRESS LEVELS ARE EXTREMELY HIGH.WE ARE STILL DEALING WITH COVID AND WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO BE HAPPENING GOING FORWARD. BUT WHAT I CAN TELL YOU IS, I REALLY BELIEVE WE ARE HANDLING THE COVID SITUATION AS A COMMUNITY VERY STRONGLY.

WE ARE WORKING WITH EACH OTHER, WE ARE TRYING TO ENHANCE AND HELP OUR BUSINESSES THROUGH THE MORE I GO OUT, THE MORE I SEE COURTESY FROM PEOPLE AND PEOPLE DOING THE RIGHT THING AND WEARING THEIR MASKS, WHICH I THINK IS SO CRUCIALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE SHARE THAT AND CONTINUE TO SPREAD THAT WORD. AND I AM VERY PROUD OF WHAT I AM SEEING IN OUR COMMUNITY WITH A LOT OF GOOD THINGS PEOPLE ARE DOING AND PEOPLE HELPING OTHER PEOPLE.

AND THAT IS A HUGE IMPORTANT FACTOR WE ALWAYS HAVE TO LOOK AT.

THE MAYOR HAD TALKED ABOUT WHAT WE WERE HONORING TODAY AND THE PEOPLE WE WERE RECOGNIZING.

AROUND THIS TIME WE ALWAYS HAVE THE WALK OFF FOR CANCER FROM THE ANTHONY RIZZO FOUNDATION AND THIS WOULD BE THE NINTH YEAR. AND THAT IS GOING TO BE A VIRTUAL EVENT THIS YEAR. IF YOU HAVEN'T CHECKED IT OUT OR LOOKED AT IT, IT'S SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN VERY IMPORTANT TO MANY PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITY FOR MANY YEARS.

AS WELL AS THE RECOGNITION OF SUICIDE PREVENTION AND MENTAL HEALTH AND THERE ARE ALSO A LOT OF THINGS GOING ON WITH PARKLAND CARES RIGHT NOW. SO BEING KIND AND BEING COURTEOUS AND KNOWING SO MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING THROUGH SUCH DIFFICULT TIMES AND TAKING THE EXTRA SENSITIVITY AND CARE IS HUGELY IMPORTANT AND I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR SHARING IT AND AGAIN, CONGRATULATIONS AND I HOPE TO SEE EVERYBODY OUT FOR OUR HALLOWEEN EVENT COMING UP AND I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT. AND THAT IS ALL THEY HAVE.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. >> THANK YOU COMMISSIONER KEEGAN.

VICE MAYOR? >> THANK YOU. I TOO WANT TO CONGRATULATE YOU ON YOUR VICTORY. I KNOW YOU WILL BE DOING SOME GREAT THINGS UP IN TALLAHASSEE NOT JUST FOR THE STATE OF FLORIDA, BUT ALSO HELPING YOUR AREA DISTRICT 96 WHICH ENCOMPASSES PARKLAND AS FOR BROWARD COUNTY SPRING VERY PROUD AND CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ELECTION. AND I'M PROUD TO CALL THE REPRESENTATIVE ELECT.

BUT I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL REPRESENTED. COUPLINGS I WANT TO MENTION AND PIGGYBACK ON WHAT COMMISSIONER CUTLER SAID. THE IRONIC PART OF THIS IS THIS IS PIECE WEEK. HIS COMMENTS ARE VERY APPROPRIATE BECAUSE PIECE WEEK IS ABOUT LOOKING TO FIND PEACE AND UNITY WITHIN OURSELVES, WITHIN OUR FAMILIES, WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY, WITHIN THE NATION. SO I GUESS THAT WAS KIND OF KEN'S COMMENTS AS WELL.

SO THANK YOU. ADDITIONALLY, A COUPLE OF HOUSEKEEPING THINGS.

THERE WAS ON LAST TUESDAY THE WASTE AND RECYCLING WORKGROUP TO KEEP EVERYBODY ABREAST.

OUR NEXT MEETING WE HAVE AT THIS MEETING CONVERSATION WITH THE AUTHORITIES LOOKING AT WHETHER TO HAVE A INDEPENDENT DEFENDANT OR IN A LOCAL AGREEMENT AS THE MAIN GOVERNING BOARD. WE ARE STILL BACK AND FORTH. WE LOOKED UP WHAT WAS POSITIVE, WHAT WAS NEGATIVE, SOME OF THE OUTCOMES. I GUESS AT OUR NEXT MEETING,

[00:20:03]

THE BOARD OF THE WORKING GROUP IS GOING TO COME UP WITH A RECOMMENDATION AND THAT WILL GO OUT TO ALL THE MUNICIPALITIES TO COME UP WITH A PLAN ON WHERE WE GO FROM THERE.

THAT IS JUST AN UPDATE ON THE WORKING GROUP. AS FAR AS, I GUESS NANCY WILL SPEAK TO THIS LATER. THE CARES ACT FUNDING. IN VIENNA NEXT MEETING TO FIND THE INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE, NANCY, THAT WE FIND A WAY TO LET ALL THE BUSINESSES NOW THERE IS CARES ACT FUNDING AS WELL AS RESIDENTS WHO MIGHT BE IN NEED

OF FUNDING AS WELL. AND THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS. >> THANK YOU.

>> I'M GOING TO REITERATE SOME OF THE THINGS. WE REALLY LOST A LEGEND AND A HERO IN OUR COUNTRY WITH THE PASSING OF SUPREME COURT JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG.

WE WILL SEE COMMENTS WHERE PEOPLE ARE LIKE HOW CAN YOU BE SAID ABOUT THE PASSING SOMEONE YOU HAVE NEVER MET.I THINK WERE THE MARKETS MISSED IN SOMETHING LIKE THAT IS THAT THERE IS A CONNECTION PEOPLE SEE FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE SEEN THEM MOVIE OR KNOW HER STORY SHE WENT TO LAW SCHOOL AT A TIME WHEN WOMEN WERE NOT VERY WELCOME.

DEFINITELY NOT ACCEPTED. FOUGHT HER WHOLE LIFE OR RIGHTS AND ESPECIALLY GENDER EQUALITY.

SO FOR THOSE OF US WHO REALIZE IT WASN'T THAT LONG AGO THAT WOMEN DIDN'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE. THAT WOMEN COULDN'T HAVE A BANK ACCOUNT ON THEIR OWN.

THAT WOMEN COULDN'T GET A CREDIT ON THEIR OWN. THE PASSING OF SOMEONE OF HER STATURE WHO FOUGHT FOR GENDER EQUALITY IS JUST SAD. THANKFULLY THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE TODAY, MEN AND WOMEN, AND CONTINUE TO CARRY THE TORCH FORWARD IN EQUALITY.

NOT JUST FOR WOMEN BUT FOR ALL. BUT DEFINITELY WHAT A LIFE SHE LIVED, WHAT A MARK SHE HAS LEFT ON OUR COUNTRY AND WHAT A LOSS FOR US. THIS WEEKEND, LAST SATURDAY WAS THANK A POLICE OFFICER DAY. SOME FAMILIES FROM THE CITY WENT OVER TO THE POLICE STATION TO BRING SOME BAKED GOODS FOR CAPTAIN MULLIGAN AND HIS TEAM THERE AND IT WAS REALLY NICE.

THE KIDS LOVED INTERACTING WITH THE DEPUTIES. IN FACT, ONE OF THE CHILDREN WANTS TO BE A DEPUTY SOMEDAY SO HE WAS VERY EXCITED AND ACTUALLY TOLD HIS MOM HE WOULD LIKE TO GO EVERY DAY TO THE POLICE STATION. ON THE THINK CAPTAIN MULLIGAN AND HIS TEAM FOR ALL THE WORK THEY DO AND FOR ALL THE COMMUNITY OUTREACH THEY CONTINUE TO WORK ON TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITY FEEL SAFE AND ONE TO AND ACCEPTED. AS A REMINDER, SUICIDE AWARENESS PREVENTION WEEK, INGALLS HAVEN IS STILL AVAILABLE EVEN THOUGH THEIR DOORS ARE NOT OPEN, THE STUDENT DOING VIRTUAL PROGRAMMING. BASIL OF CLINICIANS AVAILABLE FOR RENT ADDITIONALLY THERE IS 211 IN BROWARD FOR ANYONE WHO NEEDS HELP. THESE ARE DIFFICULT TIMES FOR MANY. THEIR HEALTH IMPACTS GOING ON RIGHT NOW CURRENT FINANCIAL IMPACTS GOING ON RIGHT NOW. PEOPLE MIGHT BE HOME A LITTLE TOO MUCH, PEOPLE MIGHT BE ON SOCIAL MEDIA OR WATCHING TELEVISION A LITTLE TOO MUCH. AND IS JUST DIFFICULT TIMES FOR PEOPLE. THERE ARE RESOURCES AVAILABLE IN THE COMMUNITY.

RESOURCES ARE LISTED ON OUR CITY WEBSITES WILL REALLY ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY TO REACH OUT FOR THE HELP IF YOU DO NEED TO HELP. ADDITIONALLY, OUR COUNTY MAYOR, BROWARD COUNTY MAYOR USUALLY PUTS TOGETHER A WEEKLY MEETING OF ALL MAYORS IN BROWARD COUNTY. WE DID NOT HAVE ONE LAST WEEK. IS WAS SOME DISCUSSION ON WHETHER OR NOT THE MEETING SHOULD BE RECORDED. WERE ALREADY NO LONGER RECORDED., ALONG WITH THE MAJORITY OF THE MUNICIPAL NIGHTMARES, REQUESTED IT BE RECORDED. WE HAVE NO ISSUE BEING ON THE RECORD AND LETTING THE RESIDENCE HEAR WHAT WE ARE SAYING. ONE OF THE THING BROUGHT UP AT THE LAST MEETING IS IN MANY RESTAURANTS THERE ARE COUNTERTOP DINING.

IN A SUSHI BAR IN THE COUNTERTOP AREA TO DINE IN UNDER THE BROWARD COUNTY EMERGENCY DECLARATIONS RIGHT NOW, THOSE ARE CONSIDERED BARS. EVEN THOUGH THEY ALSO SERVE AS AN AREA TO EAT. AND SO I PERSONALLY MADE A REQUEST RESTAURANTS BE ABLE TO

[00:25:02]

INCLUDE THE COUNTERTOP DINING AS PART OF THE DINING IN THEIR FACILITY.

AGAIN WITH THE SOCIAL DISTANCING NOT ADDING MORE THAN THE 50 PERCENT CAPACITY ALLOWED. WITH THAT PERSON RESTAURANTS WHERE THEY ARE UNABLE TO USE THE COUNTERTOP DINING, THE MAXIMUM THEY CAN NOW HAVE IN THE RESTAURANT IS IT BEING ONLY 30 OR 40 PERCENT CAPACITY. BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE THE EXTRA COUNTERTOP DINING SPACE IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE THE SOCIAL DISTANCING. THE COUNTY IS NOT ACTED ON THAT WE DO NOT HAVE A MEETING SCHEDULED YET FOR THIS WEEK, BUT I WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP THE COMMISSION UPDATED. AGAIN GIVEN THE MASKS ON, KEEPING THE SOCIAL DISTANCING, PRACTICING GOOD HYGIENE IS ALL VERY IMPORTANT. THE NUMBERS HAVE BEEN DOWN, WAY DOWN FROM WHERE THEY WERE AT THE END OF JULY WHERE THEY WERE PRETTY HIGH.

SO WE JUST NEED TO CONTINUE DOING THINGS THE RIGHT WAY IN ORDER TO KEEP OUR COMMUNITIES, OUR FAMILIES AND NEIGHBORS HEALTHY. REGARDING FUNDING FROM THE CARES ACT AS VICE MAYOR MENTIONED. SO THE WAY IT WORKS IS CITIES WHO HAD A POPULATION OF UNDER 500,000 DID NOT RECEIVE DIRECT CARES ACT FUNDING.

IN THE CASE OF BROWARD COUNTY, BROWARD COUNTY RECEIVED WE CARES ACT FUNDING AND IS WORKING WITH THE CITY MANAGERS ON THE EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION OF THE FUNDING.

NANCY WILL BE BRINGING THAT TO US AT THE NEXT MEETING WITH THE FUNDING AVAILABLE, AS WELL AS THE PROGRAMMING REGARDING RESIDENTIAL ASSISTANCE, SMALL BUSINESS ASSISTANCE, COMMUNITY PROGRAMMING AND PPE EXTENSIONS SO THE CITY CAN START WORKING WITH THE CARES ACT FUNDING TO HELP MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY. SO PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR THAT MATTER NEXT CITY COMMISSION MEETING.AND FINALLY, TO JUST PIGGYBACK ONTO WHAT COMMISSIONER CUTLER SAID AND EVERYBODY ELSE, I APPRECIATE THAT COMMISSIONER CUTLER BROUGHT THE IDEA OF CIVILITY UP AT THIS JUNCTURE IN MEETING. UNFORTUNATELY THIS HAS BEEN A TREND OVER THE LAST FOUR YEARS AND HASN'T JUST STARTED NOW. PERHAPS BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA MORE THEY ARE NOTICING IT MORE NOW. BUT LISTEN, WE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS.

EVERYONE OF US HERE HAS FAMILIES WHO'D WE ARE SOMEONE'S DAUGHTER, WE ARE SOMEONE'S SON, WE ARE SOMEONE'S WIFE, HUSBAND, MOTHER, FATHER. AND I THINK IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT WHEN WE TALK TO PEOPLE. WE DON'T ALL HAVE TO AGREE IT AND ACTUALLY, IT IS SOMETIMES HARDER TO BE KIND TO THOSE WE DON'T AGREE WITH.

BUT THAT IS THEN THE TRUE TEST OF THE CHARACTER OF WHO WE ARE. IT IS VERY EASY TO GET ALONG WITH PEOPLE AND BE NICE TO PEOPLE WHO YOU LIKE AND WHO ARE NICE TO YOU.

WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO STAND UP FOR PEOPLE WHO YOU MIGHT NOT AGREE WITH AND WHEN SHE IS TO BE KIND TO PEOPLE YOU MAY NOT AGREE PWITH, THAT IS NOT A REFLECTION OF THEM BUT IT IS A REFLECTION OF YOUR OWN CHARACTER. SO I WOULD ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, I DON'T KNOW THAT THERE IS A MORE SUCCESSFUL COMMISSION IN ALL OF BROWARD COUNTY.

EVERYBODY HERE RESPONSE TO EMAIL, RESPONSE TO PHONE CALLS AND REALLY WORKS HARD TO MAKE THIS CITY THE BEST IT CAN BE. AND THE REASON TO DO THAT IS BECAUSE WE LIVE HERE TOO.

SOME OF US FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS, SOME OF US FOR LESS. BUT ALL OF US ARE INVESTED IN THIS COMMUNITY. WE ALL OWN HOMES IN THIS COMMUNITY, WE HAVE ALL BEEN PART OF THE FABRIC OF THIS COMMUNITY FOR A LONG TIME. IN SERVING THIS COMMUNITY IS A HONORABLE LIFETIME FOR EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US. NOT IS NOT AN HONOR THAT WE TAKE LIGHTLY AND IT IS NOT YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO TAKE LIGHTLY. WE DON'T EVEN ALL AGREE ALL OURSELVES ON ISSUES, BUT WE ALL KNOW THE INTENTION IS GOOD AND THE INTENTION IS ONE OF CARRYING.SO YOU MAY DISAGREE WITH SOMEONE, BUT DON'T ASSIGN INATTENTION TO THEM.

ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW THEM. SO I WANT TO THANK ALL THE RESIDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN AMAZING DURING THIS TIME PERIOD. I HAVE SEEN SO MANY RESIDENTS STILL COLLECTING THINGS OR PEOPLE WHO ARE IN NEED, HELPING OUT AT FOOD DRIVES.

IT'S JUST, THE COMMUNITY WE LIVE IN THERE IS SO MUCH GOOD GOING ON HERE.THERE IS SO MUCH KINDNESS GOING ON IN THIS I AM JUST VERY PROUD OF THE WAY THE CITY HAS STEPPED UP ON THE WAY THE RESIDENTS HAVE STEPPED UP TO REALLY WORK TO BE THERE FOR ONE ANOTHER.

AND FOR THOSE STRUGGLING, PLEASE REACH OUT FOR HELP. THESE ARE NOT EASY TIMES FOR

[00:30:02]

EVERYONE AND IT IS IMPORTANT FOR OURSELVES AND FAMILIES THAT EVERYONE GET THE HELP THEY NEED. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND WITH THAT WE WILL CONTINUE

[7. Approval of The Agenda]

WITH THE AGENDA. AND I WAS JUST TOLD EARLIER THAT WE WERE ASKED ONCE AGAIN TO TABLE, IN THIS CASE IT IS ITEM 10 G, WHICH IS THE ORDINANCE TO REQUEST TO MODIFY CONDITIONS AND TIME FRAMES FOR PARKLAND DATA ENTRY FEATURE. WE'VE BEEN ASKED TO TABLE THAT.

AND I BELIEVE THE PERMIT HAS ALSO NOT BEEN FILED FOR THE ITEM, IS THAT CORRECT WITH THE

COUNTY? >> STAFF DID A LITTLE BIT OF RESEARCH THIS WEEK WITH THE COUNTY. WE DID SOME RESEARCH FOR THE COUNTY AND WE FOUND OUT THAT ACTUAL IMPROVEMENTS FOR PARKLAND, THE INTO FUTURE IS GOING THE INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT FOR THE ANALYTICAL AGREEMENT WAS SIGNED BY THE CITY BACK IN AUGUST.

IT IS GOING ON THE COUNTIES COMMISSION AGENDA FOR OCTOBER .

AND THEN ONCE HE GETS OUT OF THE OCTOBER 8 MEETING, THEY WILL OFFICIALLY BE ABLE TO SUBMIT FOR PERMITS. SO THEY WERE NEVER ABLE TO SUBMIT FOR PERMITS.

>CHRISTINE HUNSCHOFSKY: OKCUPID AND WE WERE ONCE AGAIN BEEN ASKED TO TABLE THAT ITEM WITH THE AGENDA. EIGHT MOTION FROM THE MEMBER OF THE COMMISSION?

>> MOTION TO APPROVE AS AMENDED. >> SECOND.

>>CHRISTINE HUNSCHOFSKY: MOTION BY COMMISSIONER KAGAN AND SECOND BY VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN TO APPROVE THE AGENDA WILL TABLING ITEM 10 G. ALL IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

ANYONE OPPOSED? PLEASE SHOW IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.TEM 88, FINAL

[8. Final Reading of FY2021 Millage and Budget]

READING OF THE FISCAL YEAR 2021 BUDGET. >> THANK YOU, MAYOR.

BUT HOW THE FINANCE DIRECTOR, CHRIS JOHNSON, DO A VERY SHORT PRESENTATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE

LISTENING NAVY FOR THE FIRST TIME. >> GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

CAN EVERYONE HEAR ME OKAY? >> YEP. >> PERFECT.

LET ME PULL UP MY PRESENTATION WILL COST AND SHARE THE SCREEN. I'M GOING TO BE VERY BRIEF TONIGHT, AS NANCY SAID. MOST EVERYTHING I'M GOING TO SAY TONIGHT HAS BEEN COVERED IN PREVIOUS MEETINGS. AND FOR THE RECORD, CHRIS JOHNSON FINANCE DIRECTOR.

TONIGHT IS OUR LAST MEETING IN THE OVERLONG BUDGET PROCESS THAT STARTED BACK IN JULY.

TONIGHT IS A SECOND PUBLIC HEARING ON THE COMMISSIONERS WILL ENACT THE ACTUAL MILLAGE RATE ORDINANCE IN THE BUDGET ORDINANCE FOR FISCAL YEAR 2021. I'M JUST GOING TO GIVE YOU A QUICK RECAP OF WHERE OUR TAXABLE VALUE WHEN. LAST YEAR WE HAD ABOUT $5.35 BILLION AND THIS YEAR WE ARE AT ABOUT 5.$7 BILLION, WHICH IS ABOUT A SEVEN PERCENT INCREASE.

GIVEN THIS ROLLBACK RATE IS ABOUT 4.2 979. I WANTED TO POINT THIS OUT THAT THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT COMPONENTS OF THE TAXABLE VALUE INCREASE FOR THIS YEAR THE CITY GOT ABOUT 4.6 PERCENT OF THE NEW VALUE FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION AND EXISTING VALLEYS INCREASED TO ABOUT 2.4 PERCENT. HATE TO POINT THIS OUT BECAUSE ONCE THE CITY ACHIEVED BUILDS OUT, 2.3 PERCENT YEARLY INCREASE IS APPROXIMATELY WHAT WE WILL BE RECEIVING EACH YEAR AS A VAST MAJORITY OF OUR HOMES ARE HOMESTEADED. SO TONIGHT WE ARE PRESENTING THE SECOND MEETING AT 4.400. WITH THAT THAT WOULD INCREASE OUR REVENUE JUST UNDER 1.$5 MILLION. SO WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR AN AVERAGE HOMEOWNER IN PARKLAND THAT HAS A HOME VALLEY OF ABOUT 635,000? THEY WILL SEE THEIR YEARLY TAX WILL INCREASE BY SEVEN DOLLARS A MONTH. AND THAT COMPONENT IS PRIMARILY DRIVEN BY THE INCREASE. WAS ALWAYS TO INCREASE ON THE SECOND MEETING LAST TIME WAS ONLY AN INCREASE OF LESS THAN A DOLLAR AND IT WAS LAST MEETING AT THE SAME $250 FOR RESIDENTIAL UNITS. SO IT WAS LIKE TO COMPARE OURSELVES TO THE OTHER CITIES AROUND HERE. YOU CAN SEE PARKLAND IS ONE OF LOWER TAX RATES IN ALL OUR COUNTY. MARKET CHECKS IN AND ABOUT 7.7, TAGAMET TO MARK ABOUT 7.3,

[00:35:02]

COCONUT 6.5, CORAL SPRINGS 1.61 IN PARKLAND IS AT THE SAME 4.00 AS LAST YEAR.

TO BEGIN, IF YOU EQUATE THAT TO DOLLARS ACROSS THE CITIES, YOU WILL SEE PARKLAND IS ABOUT $1000 LESS THAN CORAL SPRINGS UP TO ALMOST $2000 LESS THAN TAMARACK.

IS WITH THIS BUDGET WE ARE PROPOSING AT 4.4 MILLS, THE OPERATION STANDPOINT IS ABOUT A 3.8 PERCENT INCREASE. AS YOU TAKE POLICE AND FIRE OUT OF THAT INCREASE IS A LARGE COMPONENT OF THE INCREASE THIS YEAR FROM AN OPERATIONAL PERSPECTIVE FOR THE DEPARTMENT SIDE OF THINGS, THE INCREASE IS ONLY 1.7 PERCENT FOR FY 2021. THAT IS ALL I HAVE TONIGHT SINCE EVERYTHING ELSE HAS BEEN TOUCHED ON MANY TIMES OVER THE PAST FEW MEETINGS.

AT THAT TIME I WILL TURN IT OVER FOR ANY QUESTIONS. >> THANK YOU.

DO WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? I'M GOING TO OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FIRST.

ANYONE ON THE PUBLIC LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM? >> MAYOR, ANDY HERE.

BEFORE THE PUBLIC SPEAKS, I NEED TO READ IT INTO THE RECORD.

>>CHRISTINE HUNSCHOFSKY: GO AHEAD. >> SORRY.

AS PROPOSED IN THE DEDUCTED ON THE FIRST READING, OPERATING RATE FOR FISCAL YEAR 2021 IN ORDER TO REDUCE TAXATION AVENUE THAT WHEN COMBINED WITH OTHER PROJECTED GENERAL REVENUE WILL BE ADEQUATE TO PAY THE APPROPRIATIONS IN THE FISCAL YEAR 2021 BUDGET IS 4.400 .

WITH FISCAL RATE OF 4.400 MILLS IS 2.38 PERCENT MORE THAN THE ROLLBACK RATE OF 4.29 CALCULATED PURSUANT TO FLORIDA LAW. AND UNDER FLORIDALAW , THE DEFINITION OF 2.38 PERCENT IS THE PERCENTAGE TAX INCREASE BE AND ADOPTED BASED UPON THE

ROLLBACK RATE OF 4.2 979. >> I'M WITH THAT. WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

IF ANYONE FOR THE PUBLIC WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND

PRINT NEIL, ARE YOU RAISING YOUR HAND? >> YES!

THANK YOU.>> NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD, PLEASE. >> 7520 WEST 120TH DRIVE AND PARKLAND HAD GOOD EVENING EVERYONE. A SIMPLE QUESTION.

RESIDENT REDUCING THE INCREASE TO $84 PER YEAR, WHAT IS THE PERCENTAGE INCREASE THAT

REPRESENTS? THANK YOU. >> CHRIS?

>> HAVE IT ON YOUR SLIDES. >> LET ME GO BACK TO THE SLIDE. RIGHT HERE.

$84 INCREASE OR DO A QUICK PERCENTAGE CALCULATION WOULD BE ãTHAT'S ABOUT IT 2.5 PERCENT

INCREASE OVER THE COURSE OF THE YEAR. >> THANK YOU, CHRIS.

ANYBODY ELSE IN THE PUBLIC HAVE ANY COMMENTS ON THIS AGENDA ITEM? I'M SEEING NO ONE FOR THE PUBLIC WHO HAS HER HAND RAISED SO I WILL CLOSE TO THE PUBLIC AND OPEN TO THE COMMISSION. ANYBODY FROM THE COMMISSION WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS

AGENDA ITEM? >> MOTION TO APPROVE 4.4. >> BEFORE WE DO A MOTION, DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS? IF NOBODY HAS ANY COMMENTS, I WILL COMMENT THAT I AM ONCE AGAIN ASKING THIS COMMISSION AS I DID AT OUR JUNE 17 WORKSHOP, AS I DID AT OUR JULY 8 MEETING, AS I DID AT OUR AUGUST 19 MEETING AND AS I DID AT OUR LAST MEETING, I AM ASKING THE COMMISSION CONSIDERING THE TIMES WE ARE IN THE SHOW THE RESIDENT SOME RELIEF, ALBEIT MINOR, GO TO THE ROLLBACK FOR NO RESIDENT IS PAYING A DOLLAR MORE IN MILLAGE THAN THEY DID LAST YEAR. COMMISSIONER KAGAN.>STACY KAGAN: I WOULD SECOND THAT.

>>CHRISTINE HUNSCHOFSKY: I DIDN'T MAKE A MOTION. WE HAVE 10 MADE A MOTION WE ARE WAITING FOR A SECOND. ALMOST ANYBODY ELSE HAS ANY PCOMMENTS? WOULD ANYBODY LIKE TO SECOND COMMISSIONER COUPLERS MOTION? OKAY.

[00:40:02]

THE MOTION FAILS. DO WE HAVE ANOTHER MOTION? SPEAK TO I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A

MOTION TO GO BACK TO THE ROLLBACK RATE. >> MOTION BY COMMISSIONER KAGAN TO GO TO THE ROLLBACK RATE YOUTH DO I HAVE A SECOND?I DON'T HAVE A SECOND FOR THAT

MOTION. >> I WILL SECOND THAT. >>CHRISTINE HUNSCHOFSKY: SECOND BY COMMISSIONER WALKER BOARD MOTION BY COMMISSIONER KAGAN AND SECOND BY COMMISSIONER

WALKER. >> I'M SORRY. >> HAVE TO READ IT AGAIN?

>> I WAS LATE ON PUSHING MY ON MUTE BUTTON. >> HAVE TO BE QUICK WITH US,

ANDY! >> IF I COULD ASK COMMISSIONER KAGAN, BASED UPON WHAT I THINK YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT, YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT PROVIDING THE RATE YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT

ADOPTING NOW, INSTEAD OF 4400 IS 4.2 979 MILLS. >> BASED UPON THAT, THE OPERATING RATE OF 4.279 IS A ZERO PERCENT INCREASE ABOVE THE ROLLBACK RATE OF 4.2 979.

SEE YOU ARE ADOPTING THAT RATE? INCE IT IS AN AMENDED MOTION, I WOULD ASK YOU OFFER TO REOPEN IT TO THE PUBLIC. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ADOPTING 4.2 979 MILLS, WHICH IS A ZERO PERCENT INCREASE OVER THE ROLLBACK RATE OF 4.2 979. IF YOU COULD.

>> YES, I WILL DO IT OF COURSE. WITH THAT I WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC IF ANYBODY FOR THE PUBLIC WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND.

SINGH KNOWN TO THE PUBLIC, I AM CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC AND WILL OPEN TO COMMISSIONER CUTLER .

>>KEN CUTLER : THANK YOU. SO I WANT TO MAKE IT CLEAR TO THE RECORD THAT BY GOING TO THE ROLLBACK RATE, THE CITY IS GOING TO LOSE APPROXIMATELY $550,000 IN REVENUE IN THE 2021 YEAR BY ADOPTING THAT RATE PRUDENT OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS THE CUMULATIVE LOSS BY ADOPTING THE ROLLBACK RATE IS GOING TO BESOMEWHERE BETWEEN TWO DONATED 2.9 MILLION DOLLARS . STAFF HAS TOLD US THAT FROM A FORECASTING PERSPECTIVE, THE CITY COULD BE IN A DEFICIT RANGING FROM 100,000 TO 400,000 IN THE NEAR TERM AND POSSIBLY AS HIGH AS 1.$8 MILLION BY 2025. I HAVE TALKED ABOUT THIS BEFORE, WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THIS OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST SEVERAL MEETINGS.

WE ARE GOING TO BE ROLLING BACK. WHAT THAT IS GOING TO DO IS IT IS GOING TO HAVE AN IMPACT UPON OUR ABILITY TO MOVE FORWARD WITH WHAT WE HAVE IS THE PARKS MASTER PLAN. IS GOING TO HAVE AN IMPACT UPON THE NUMBER OF DIFFERENT THINGS WE HAD IN OUR STRATEGIC PLANNING OPERATIONS. AND IT IS GOINGAGAINST THE ADVICE OF OUR EXPERTS, THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN DOING THIS AS A CITY MANAGEMENT.

AND SO I JUST WANT TO MAKE IT CLEAR , I UNDERSTAND FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE THE SCENARIO WE ARE IN RELATIVE TO COVID IN THE BREAK IT MIGHT BE GIVING TO THE RESIDENTS, BUT LISTEN, I UNDERSTAND A DOLLARIS A DOLLAR AND $84 IS $84 . BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY FROM THAT COLLECTIVE ABILITY TO SERVICE OUR COMMUNITY IN THE FASHION WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ACCUSTOMED TO, I THINK IT IS IMPERATIVE WE UNDERSTAND THAT BY ROLLING BACK WHAT WE ARE DOING IS WE'RE PUTTING OURSELVES IN A POSTURE THAT IS AGAINST THE ADVICE OF OUR

EXPERTS. THAT IS MY COMMENTS. >> THANK YOU.

I WILL JUST RESPOND AS I DID IN THE PREVIOUS MEETINGS. IS NOT JUST ABOUT THE DOLLAR AMOUNT. IT IS ALSO ABOUT LISTENING TO THE STRUGGLESTHAT MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY ARE GOING THROUGH. NANCY, HAS A CITY OF PARKLAND

LAID ANYBODY OFF THROUGHOUT THISPROCESS? >> WE HAVE NOT .

>> OKAY. I'M GLAD ABOUT THAT, BUT MANY IN OUR COMMUNITY ARE NOTIN THE SAME POSITION . $550,000 IN A GENERAL FUND OF 42 MILLION IS NOT A HUGE AMOUNT. AND ALL WE ARE ASKING ãWE DO NOT NEED TO DELAY THE PARKS MASTER PLAN OR ANY OF THAT, BUT WE DO NEED TO TIGHTEN OUR BELTS IN CERTAIN OPERATIONAL THINGS SO WE HAVE BETTER EFFICIENCIES AND WE CAN DO THINGS IN A SMARTER AND MORE COST-EFFICIENT WAY. THERE IS ALWAYS ROOM TO TIGHTEN UP. BELIEVE MOST HOUSEHOLDS HAVE BEEN TIGHTENING UP IN THE PAST COUPLE MONTHS. AND I THINK IT IS JUST ãIT BE A GOOD IDEA FOR THE CITY TO DO THE SAME SINCE THAT'S WHAT OUR RESIDENTS ARE GOING THROUGH.

[00:45:04]

THAT IS MY POSITION ON IT. COMMISSIONER WALKER? >>RICHARD WALKER : THANK YOU MAYOR. THE WAY I'M LOOKING AT IT IS I'M LOOKING AT IT AS THE MAYOR SAID LAST WEEK. THIS IS A ONE YEAR OPPORTUNITY. THIS IS NOT A LONG-TERM DECISION THAT WE ARE MAKING. I FEEL WE ARE MAKING THIS DECISION BECAUSE OFWHAT IS GOING ON AT THIS MOMENT . AGAIN, I'M LOOKING AT THIS IS A ONE YEAR THING.

NANCY HAS PUT TOGETHER SOME CUTS THAT WOULD NOT AFFECT OUR SERVICES AND IT WOULD NOT AFFECT ãNOBODY WANTS TO COMPLETE THE PARKS MASTER PLAN MORE THAN I DO.

IN THIS ROLLBACK FOR THIS YEAR WILL NOT HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE PROCESS.

THAT'S WHY I AM CHANGING MY TUNE A LITTLE BIT, BUT I HAVE SPOKEN TO RESIDENTS.

I HEARWHAT THEY ARE SAYING . I SEE THIS AS A ONE YEAR ROLLBACK.

>> NANCY, CAN YOU MAYBE GO THROUGH THE ITEMS THAT YOU SUGGESTED MARIKA TIGHTEN UP? ALBEIT WE COULD ALWAYS LOOK AT OTHER ITEMS. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO NECESSARILY

BE THE ONES NANCYIS BRINGING UP THIS EVENING . >> BEFORE SHE DOES THAT, YOU MIGHT JUST ASK, IS THAT TIGHTENING OF IN DEFERENCE TO THE IDEA WE ARE TAKING THE

ROLLBACK OR THAT WE ARE STAYING AT THE FOUR POINTS FOR. >> THAT IS WITH THE ROLLBACK.

>> IN OTHER WORDS, I THOUGHT THE IDEA THE STAFF WAS GOING TO GO BACK AND TRY TO SAVE DOLLARS ON THE ISSUE SO WE CAN STAY UP FOR.FOR BUT STILL QUITE TIGHTEN OUR BELTS? WHAT THEY WERE GOING BACK IN ORDER TO TIGHTEN UP FOR THE ROLLBACK RATE.

>> I CAN DO EITHER WAY. BUT FROM WHAT I'M HEARING WITH THE COMMISSION, THERE IS A

MAJORITY TO THE ROLLBACK. >> CORRECT. >> SO JUST TO GIVE YOU A QUICK RECAP, WE ARE LOOKING AT OUR GENERAL FUND BUDGET HAD FUTURE FUNDING, AVAILABLE CASH SET ASIDE FOR CAPITAL. THERE WAS NO SPECIFIC PROJECTS EARMARKED WITH THIS, BUT IT WAS AVAILABLE FOR FUTURE CAPITAL. O THAT IS AT 275,000. PROPOSING TO REDUCE THE: 281 PERCENT FOR EMPLOYEES, WHICH WOULD BE $100,000. PROPOSING TO REDUCE THAT SERVICE, WHICH IS ANOTHER $100,000. CURRENTLY THERE IS A CONTINGENCY OF 200,000 AND I AM PROPOSING TO REDUCE THAT BY 50,000.

AN ADDITIONAL REDUCTION THROUGHOUT THE DEPARTMENT OF 35,000.

SO THOSE ARE MY REQUESTED CHANGES IF WE WERE TO GO TO THE ROLLBACK RATE.

>> AGAIN, JUST TO REITERATE, CONTINGENCY AND NON-EARMARKED CAPITAL FUNDING REDUCING WITH: ONE PERCENT AND DEBT SERVICE BY 100,000. OKAY.

COMMISSIONER KAGAN?2 I AGREE WITH YOU ALMOST 100 PERCENT. I DID SIT DOWN AND I DID MEET WITH NANCY BECAUSE I WAS CONCERNED ON NOT HAVING ANY LEVEL OF SERVICE THAT WOULD BE CHANGED. AND I DIDN'T WANT ANY OF LEVEL OF SERVICE TO BE CHANGED AND I DIDN'T WANT ANYTHING TO INFECT OUR EMPLOYEES. SO AFTER HAVING VERY EXTENSIVE REVIEW OF THE BUDGET, THERE WERE OTHER THINGS WERE IF WE NEEDED WE COULD ALSO CUT BACK ON. I FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE WITH PWHAT NANCY REVIEWED AND AFTER REVIEWING THE BUDGET SHOULD WE NEED MORE WE WILL HAVE MORE AND I DON'T FEEL LIKE ANY LEVEL OF SERVICE WILL BE CUT TO THE COMMUNITY AND KILL ANY HELP WE CAN GIVE OUR COMMUNITY IS HUGELY IMPORTANT BECAUSE BEING OUT IN THE COMMUNITY AND LISTENING TO WHAT THEIR EXPERIENCES WERE, I FEEL IT IS IMPORTANT WE HAVE TO TAKE SERIOUSLY AND SHOULD WE NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE GOING FORWARD NEXT YEAR, THEN WE COULD. BUT I AGREE WITH THE WAY THIS

LOOKS GREAT NOW. SO THANK YOU. >> I STILL HAVE ãANDY, DO YOU

SORDIDNESS NUMBER 2020 019 ADOPT THE FY 2021 ANIMAL BUDGET SECOND READING. IN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF PARKLAND FLORIDA ADOPTING A BUDGET OCTOBER 1, 2022 SEPTEMBER 30 2021. PROVIDING THIS HER ABILITY AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE

PDATE. >> MAYOR, AS A CITY MANAGER INDICATED, THIS IS THE REVISED ATTACHMENTS TO THE BUDGET REVISIONS MADE AS A RESULT OF THE VILLAGE CHANGE.

>> OKAY. WITH THAT I WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC IF ANYBODY ON THE PUBLIC WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS A GIANT AGENDA ITEM PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND.

SEEING NO ONE FROM THE PUBLIC, I'M CLOSING TO THEPUBLIC AN OPENING TO THE COMMISSION .I JUST WANTED TO MAKE TWO COMMENTS. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE A COMMENT BEFORE I GO? NO? ALL RIGHT.

MY ONE COMMENT WOULD BE THE TERROR MORE PARK WALKWAY LIGHTING AND I ONLY BRING THIS UP BECAUSE THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING ISSUE FOR THE LAST AT LEAST FOUR YEARS.

THAT IS IN THE BUDGET. IT IS FOR $15,000 WERE IT CONTINUALLY HAVING BATTERY ISSUES WITH THE SOLAR OPERATED LIGHTS. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SURE WE CAN MOVE AHEAD WITH THAT AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE SINCE WE HAVE A LOT MORE PEOPLE OUT WALKING AND RIDING THEIR BIKES. I WOULD SEE THIS AS A PRIORITY ITEM.WOULD THAT BE OKAY?>

ABSOLUTELY. >> ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ON THIS ITEM? I HAD ONE MORE QUESTION. WHEN I WENT THROUGH THE BUDGET I NOTICED WE HAD A BUDGET WE DID IN 2016 THAT WE APPROVED THAT SEPTEMBER. WOULD ALWAYS SET ASIDE $1 MILLION IN THE PINE TREE ROADS CAPITAL FUND AND THOSE HAD BEEN REMOVED IN THIS BUDGET.

>> RIGHT. LET ME EXPLAIN HOW THAT WORKS. AT ONE POINT THE CITY WAS LOOKING OUT ROLLING OUT A STREET BY STREET PLAN AND THAT STARTED IN 2016.

IN ORDER TO RULE OUT A PLAN LIKE THAT, THE CITY NEEDED TO BEGIN THE PROCESS OF HAVING AVAILABLE RESERVES PRIOR TO TAKING OUT A DEBT ISSUANCE. AND THAT MONEY WAS PUT THERE TO BEGIN THE REPLACEMENT CYCLE FOR THE STREETS. AND IS ACTUALLY LEFT FOR THREE YEARS NOT KNOWING IF ANY OF THE STREETS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH. AND WHAT WE WOULD DO IS DO LIKE A BRIDGE LOAN UNTIL THE MAIN LOAN WAS RECEIVED AND THE INTENT WAS ALWAYS TO ASSESS

BACK THE RESIDENCE FOR THAT LOAN. >>CHRISTINE HUNSCHOFSKY: OKAY.

BUT IF WE ARE TAKING OUT THE ITEMS NOW WE KNOW LONGER HAVE A PLACEHOLDER FOR THAT PROJECT?

>> AT THIS POINT WITH THE LAWSUIT AND MOVING FORWARD, WE DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING HAPPENING AS FAR AS A PLACEHOLDER TO INITIATE SOMETHING MOVING FORWARD.

BUT WE CAN ALWAYS AMEND THE BUDGET TO PUT SOMETHING BACK IN IF THAT IS THE DIRECTION AND

DESIRE AFTER PLANNING. >>CHRISTINE HUNSCHOFSKY: IF I COULD.

SUGGEST A COUPLE OF THINGS. I WANT TO BE VERY CLEAR WITH WHAT YOU SAID.

A DECISION WAS NEVER MADE BY THE COMMISSION ON WHAT WE WERE DOING ON THE ATTRIBUTE THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO ALL BE DISCUSSED IN STRATEGIC PLANNING BUT WAS CANCELED.

I DON'T THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO EMPTY OUT THAT PLACEHOLDER AT THIS POINT IN TIME SO WOULD LIKE TO PUT THAT BACK INTO THE BUDGET AT THIS TIME IF WE COULD DO THAT.

>> THAT CHANGES THE BOTTOM LINE OF THE ENTIRE BUDGET. IF I COULD ASK WE AMEND THE

[00:55:06]

BUDGET TO DO THAT, I THINK THAT WOULD BE THE CLEANEST WAY TO HANDLE THAT.

>>CHRISTINE HUNSCHOFSKY: OKAY. BUT THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE GOING ON.

IT'S THE SOURCE OF LOTS OF VERY SPIRITED CONVERSATIONS OUT THERE.

SO I DO THINK WE NEED TO HAVE A BUDGET THAT STILL HAS THAT PLACEHOLDER AND DOESN'T HAVE THATPLACEHOLDER REMOVED . SO THAT PEOPLE REALIZE THERE IS A COMMITMENT TO THE PINE TREE ROADS. THERE ALWAYS HAS BEEN A COMMITMENT.

HAS BEEN A COMMITMENT SINCE 2016 AND THERE'S BEEN NO FORMAL DECISION MADE BY THE COMMISSION BECAUSE WE DIDN'T ACTUALLY HAVE OUR STRATEGIC PLAN. AND WITH THAT, I WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC IF ANYBODY FOR THE PUBLIC WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS BUDGET PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. SEEING NO ONE IN THE PUBLIC, I'M CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC AN

OPENING TO THE COMMISSION. >> MOTION TO APPROVE AS AMENDED.>> SECOND.

>>CHRISTINE HUNSCHOFSKY: MOTION BY VICE MAYOR, SECOND BY COMMISSIONER WALKER.

IN THE AMENDMENT IS JUST WITH THE ATTACHMENT THAT NANCY HAS, CORRECT?> OF.

>> YES. >>CHRISTINE HUNSCHOFSKY: ROLL CALL POLICE.

>> COMMISSIONER WALKER. >> YES. >> COMMISSIONER CUTLER.

>> YES >> COMMISSIONER KAGAN. >> YES.

>> VICE MAYOR MAYERSOHN. >> YES . >> MAYOR HUNSCHOFSKY.

>> I'M VOTING NO BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO BE APPROVING A BUDGET WITHOUT MILLION DOLLARS THAT HAS BEEN THERE SINCE 2016 SET ASIDE FOR THE PINE TREE FUND.

WE SHOW IT PASSES 4/1. NEXT ON THE AGENDA IS THE CONSENT AGENDA.

WHAT YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU THIS EVENING IS A REQUEST FROM THE POLICE PENSION BOARD. THERE ARE TWO VERSIONS OF THE ORDINANCE BEING PRESENTED TO YOU. THE FIRST VERSION YOU WILL SEE IS WITH THE SECTION A ONE AND IT ON THE SECOND VERSION IS WITH THE SECTION REMOVED.

UPON REVIEW, ALONG WITH THE CITY ATTORNEYS, WE DECIDED IT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CITY TO HAVE SECTION A ONE REMOVED. AND THE REASON FOR THAT IS BECAUSE IT ALLOWS FUTURE TAX CHANGES TO BE DONE BY THE PENSION BOARD WITHOUT GOING THROUGH CITY COMMISSION APPROVAL. SO THE STAFF AND CITY ATTORNEY

IS RECOMMENDING VERSION APPROVAL OF VERSION 2. >> WE RECOMMEND JUST MAKING THE ONE CHANGED TO REFLECT THE CHANGE IN THE FEDERAL REGULATIONS AND NOT GRANT THE AUTHORITY OF THE BOARD TO MAKE CHANGES WITHOUT ADOPTING AN ORDINANCE.

>> AND IF I MAY, THE WAY IT SHOWS UP IN THE BACKUP IS THE VERSION WE ARE RECOMMENDING

SHOWS UP AS FIRST IN THE AGENDA AND NOT SECOND. >> SO IT IS THE VERSION WITH

THE SECTION A ONE REMOVED. >> THAT IS CORRECT. >> FOR THOSE WHO MAY BE LISTENING IN AND NOT AWARE OF WHAT THIS IS.

NEXT ON OUR AGENDA ARE COMMENTS BY THE BROWARD SHERIFF'S OFFICE.

>> DO I NEED TO TOUCH ANYTHING HERE? OKAY.

GOOD EVENING, CHRIS MULLIGAN, CAPTAIN BROWARD. JUST AGAIN, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY CONGRATULATIONS MAYOR ON YOUR ELECTION TO THE REPRESENTATIVE. GOOD LUCK TO YOU.

I KNOW YOU WILL DO GREAT THINGS OF THE. SECONDLY I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THE MOMS BY THE DISTRICT ON SUNDAY. THAT WAS AN OUTSTANDING EVENT

[01:10:02]

THAT MORE KIDS THERE THAN WE HAD ANTICIPATED. BUT THE GUYS ALL ENJOYED IT AND IT'S ALWAYS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO MEET MORE RESIDENTS, ESPECIALLY NOWADAYS ON THE SOCIAL DISTANCING THINK MAKES IT THAT MUCH MORE DIFFICULT FOR US.

I WOULD LIKE TO BRING TO YOUR ATTENTION A POSITIVE ISSUE WE HAD IN THE CITY TWO WEEKS AGO, TUESDAY. THE DISTRICT MADE FOR ARRESTS ON AN ATTEMPTED CAUGHT OUR BURGLARY AND PARKLAND GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SPECIFICALLY MENTION THE BASE AND THEY SAID NO AND VICKI THROUGH THOSE DEPUTIES RESPONDED TO A CALL FROM A RESIDENT FOR THE QUICKLY ESTABLISHED A PERIMETER YOUR THEY ALSO ASKED FOR ADDITIONAL RESOURCES, CANINE, HELICOPTERS, UNITS FROM TAMARACK ADDITIONALLY RESPONDED TO READ THE DEPUTY ACTUALLY SAW THE SUBJECT AS THEY WERE ATTEMPTING TO EXIT PARKLAND GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB ON UNIVERSITY DRIVE, WATCH THEM GET IN THE WAITING CAR AND HE WAS ABLE TO BROADCAST THAT INFORMATION OUT THAT IS ABLE TO STOP THAT CAR WHEN DEPUTIES STOPPED THE CAR THERE WERE FIVE OCCUPANTS IN THAT VEHICLE WOULD ALL THOSE OCCUPANTS WERE DETAINED AND TAKEN BACK TO THE DISTRIC OFFICE WHERE WE HAD DEPUTY ROBERT, WHEN ARE DETECTIVES, CAME OUT, HE INTERVIEWED THEM, HE WAS ABLE TO OBTAIN CONFESSIONS FROM FOUR OFTHE SUBJECTS AND ULTIMATELY WE WOUND UP ARRESTING FOR PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THAT CASE.

SO A VERY GOOD CASE OF THE DEPUTIES DOING AN OUTSTANDING JOB IN GETTING THOSE RESOURCES THERE. I JUST WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT THAT.

ALSO, JUST WANTED TO MENTION AGAIN OUR PODCAST. OUR SECOND EPISODE DROPPED TODAY. IS NOW AVAILABLE ON APPLE PODCAST, SPOTIFY, ALL THE USUAL PLACES YOU CAN FIND PODCASTS. THIS EPISODE WILL FEATURE OUR CODE ENFORCEMENT OFFICER SO YOU WILL ACTUALLY GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET THEM, LISTEN TO THEM AND DISCUSS AND HEAR THEM DISCUSS ON OUR MORE PROMINENT CODE ENFORCEMENT ISSUES IN THE CITY.

AND LASTLY, I WANTED TO MENTION IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN HER IN GRAPH WITH PUT UP NEXT DOOR, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THAT. AGAIN, AND HAS TO DO WITH OUR CAR BURGLARY ISSUES.

I DON'T WANT TO GET INTO IT BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE I AM BEATING A DEAD HORSE, BUT IT IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THE ISSUE AND HOW WE CAN WORK TOGETHER TO HOPEFULLY BRING THAT DOWN TO A LITTLE BIT MORE OF A MANAGEABLE SITUATION. WITH THAT, THAT IS ALL I HAVE.

>> THANK YOU, CAPTAIN MULLIGAN. THE KIDS LOVE TO PUT ONE OF THEM WANTED TO VISIT YOU EVERY

DAY AT THE POLICE STATION. >> WE WILL TAKE THEM FORA RIDE.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR IN AND DON'T FORGET, 9:00 P.M. LOCK YOUR CAR DOORS, BRING THEM

[12. Comments by the City Manager]

INSIDE. COMMENTS BY THE CITY MANAGER QUICK.>> I DO HAVE A FEW THIS EVENING. FIRST OFF I WOULD LIKE TO CONGRATULATE YOU ALL.

I'M SURE YOU WILL DO MANY GREAT THINGS. AND I ALSO HAVE GOOD NEWS.

YOU WILL BE HAPPY TO KNOW THE LARGER FLAG IS FLYING. >> I HEARD ALREADY! AND IT IS IN PART OF THE CONTRACT FOR GLAD IT FINALLY WORKED OUT.

>> THANK YOU TO ANTHONY OUR CITY ATTORNEY WHO REALLY WORK ON GETTING THE LARGER FLAG FOR ME.

THE ILA BETWEEN US AND BROWARD COUNTY WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF IMPLEMENTING TWO ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS. ON BE IN GRANTS FOR OUR SMALL BUSINESSES AND THE OTHER BEING A MORTGAGE PROGRAM FOR OUR RESIDENTS. WE ARE REFERRED TO AS WHAT IS KNOWN AS A NON-ENTITLEMENT CIT . WE CURRENTLY DON'T HAVE ANY MECHANISMS IN PLACE TO DISTRIBUTE FUNDS TO THOSE IN NEED.

SO STAFF HAS BEEN WORKING FAST SIX WEEK ON COMING UP WITH THE APPLICATION PROCESS, THE REQUIRED DOCUMENTS ALONG WITH THE WEBSITE AND THE INFORMATION TO DOWNLOAD AND AUDITING PROCESSES. SO I'M HOPING TO HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION, IF NOT MOST OF IT FOR YOU ON OCTOBER 7 TO ROLL THAT OUT. AND THEN WILL BE ABLE TO MOVE FORWARD FAIRLY QUICKLY. WE ALSO HAVE THE MONEY SO QUICKLY THROUGH THE WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY FOR THE APPLICANTS WILL HAVE A TIMEFRAME LIMIT. IT WILL BE PROBABLY A TIGHT TIMEFRAME GIVEN THE CONSTRAINTS AND LIMITATIONS OF THE CARES FUND.

WE ARE FORTUNATE THAT WE ARE ABLE TO BE REIMBURSED FOR OUR PPE AND ANY ADDITIONAL COSTS THE CITY HAS INCURRED. WE DO HAVE ALL OF THOSE RECEIPTS AND THINGS IN PLACE TO SUBMIT THOSE TO THE COUNTY. DISADVANTAGE ON THIS REIMBURSEMENT AS WE HAVE TO

[01:15:07]

SPEND IT FIRST BEFORE WE GET IT. SO I HAVE TO BE 100 PERCENT CONFIDENT THAT WHATEVER PROGRAM WE CHOOSE TO IMPLEMENT IS THAT THE COUNTY WILL REIMBURSE IT.

SO THAT MAY TAKE A LITTLE BIT MORE TIME THAN I WOULD PREFER, BUT IT IS BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY BECAUSE WE WILL BE AUDITED. I JUST WANTED TO GIVE YOU A QUICK OVERVIEW. THIS IS SOMETHING STAFF HAS BEEN WORKING VERY CLOSELY WITH

THE VCC MICE IN THE COUNTY FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF MONTHS. >> THANK YOU FOR THE WORK ON THAT AND I HAVE FULL FAITH IN WHATEVER PROGRAM WE COME UP WITH.

I KNOW YOU GUYS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SPOT ON AS WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET THE MAXIMUM DOLLARS

TO THE CITY. >> THANK YOU. IN OUR LAST MEETING YOU ASKED TO WORK AT THE HOUSEHOLD WE SERVICE HAZARDOUS WASTE. WITH THE NEWCONTRACT WE SIGNED LAST YEAR , THIS IS FOR THE HOUSE HOLD AND WE DECIDED TO BREAK AWAY FROM THE COUNTY.

THE COUNTY AT THAT TIME WAS CHARGING US BY POPULATION REGARDLESS OF WHAT WAS BROUGHT.

THE COST FOR LAST YEAR WILL WHICH WAS FY 2090 WAS NOT THE 76,000.

SO WE WANTED TO JOIN THIS CO-OP. WE FELT THE CO-OP WOULD ALLOW MORE OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR RESIDENTS. NUMBER ONE BEING WE HOST ONE LAST DECEMBER WE HOSTED OUR VERY FIRST SOLID RECYCLING EVENT.

AND IT WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL. ALSO IN ADDITION TO THEM, THERE ARE 16 OTHER EVENTS THAT OCCURRED THROUGH THE CALENDAR YEAR, WHICH HAS ALLOWED OUR RESIDENTS TO GO TO LOCAL MUNICIPALITIES TO DROP OFF THEIR WASTE. THE AMOUNT WE CURRENTLY HAVE YEAR-TO-DATE, THE NEW PROGRAM IS 55,000 BUT THE HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE LAST INVOICE FOR THE FISCAL YEAR YOU. AND WE ARE STILL EVALUATING IT. WE WILL KEEP LOOKING AT IT.

I DO KNOW THAT THERE WAS A FEW PROBLEMS OR ISSUES OR CONCERNS WITH SOME RESIDENTS FROM THE COCONUT CREEK EVENT. IF YOU ARE AVAILABLE TO RESEARCH TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED AND HE HAS INFORMATION TO SHARE WITH YOU. PHIL, ARE YOU ON?

>> MY VOICE IS ON, MY VIDEO IS NOT ON.>> ARE YOU DOING THAT ON PURPOSE, PHIL? GOOD EVENING EVERYBODY. SO THE COCONUT CREEK EVENT. IF YOU ALL REMEMBER, IT WAS VERY BAD WEATHER. WE HAD TWO COMPLAINTS. ONE OF THE COMPLAINTS WE IDENTIFIED IS THEY HAD SHOWN UP AT THE COUNTY FOR THAT CONTRACT HAD INDEED BEEN TERMINATED AND THEY WERE NOT GIVEN THAT INFORMATION BUT THEY WERE AT THE WRONG LOCATION.

THE SECOND RESIDENT THAT TURNED IT UP WAS TURNED AWAY DUE TO THE FACT THE WEATHER WAS BAD, THE DRIVERS LICENSE READER WAS NOT WORKING OUT THE TIME THEY SAID YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO GET OUT OF LINE, COME BACK BUT WE CAN'T ACCOMMODATE YOU RIGHT NOW.

SO THERE WERE SOME GLITCHES. IT DID OPEN UP IN THE AMOUNT OF MATERIAL THAT WAS BROUGHT.

THE ONLY NEW CONTRACT IS A TIME. SO IT RUNS FROM 9:00 TO 2:00.

WHEREAS WE ARE WITH THE COUNTY IS TO BE EVERY SATURDAY FROM 9:00 TO 3:00.

WE ARE STILL WEIGHING THIS OUT. I THINK NANCY ALLUDED TO BUT WHEN WE WERE WITH THE COUNTY FROM THE LAST YEAR WE WERE WITH THE COUNTY WE PAID SOMETHING LIKE $70,000.

SO WE ARE STILL SOMEWHAT UNDER WE PAID WITH THE COUNTY, REALIZING MAYBE IT IS NOT PNEARLY AS CONVENIENT OR AS CONVENIENT. BUT WHEN YOU HOST YOUR OWN EVENT, WHICH ARE A LOT MORE PEOPLE COMING OUT. WE HAVE ANOTHER ONE COMING UP INDECEMBER. WE EXPECT THAT ONE TO BE THAT EVENT , WELL ATTENDED.

GIVES US THE OPPORTUNITY TO PPROCESS THE STUFF IN A MUCH MORE EXPEDITIOUS MANNER AND ALLOWS US, ALLOW RESIDENTS TO COME OUT FOR THE CALL THE PUBLIC WORKS OFFICE ALL THE

TIME. SO THAT IS MY TWO CENTS. >> OKAY.

THANK YOU. MAYBE WE COULD PUT OUT ãSINCE THERE SEEMS TO THIS CONFUSION AS TO THE LOCATION EVEN THOUGH IT'S ON THE WEBSITE AND EVERYWHERE, MAYBE WE COULD PUT OUT ONE OF THOSE RED ALERT TEXTS OR SOMETHING TO HIGHLIGHT NEW LOCATION.

PLEASE BE AWARE. BECAUSE IT'S ABOUT THE COMMUNICATION, BUT I DON'T THINK WE HIGHLIGHT WITH RED AND FLASHING LIGHTS AND EVERYTHING TO LET PEOPLE KNOW ãNOTICE THE NEW LOCATION. BUT PERHAPS USING OUR TEXT SYSTEM OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, THAT MIGHT BE HELPFUL FOR THE NEXT TO GO AROUND. SOMETHING FOR PEOPLE TO NOTICE

[01:20:01]

>> THAT IS ALL MY COMMENTS. >>CHRISTINE HUNSCHOFSKY: THANK YOU, NANCY.

[13. Comments by the City Attorney]
