9. APPROVAL OF MINUTES

10. ORDINANCES -PUBLIC COMMENTS

1. Ordinances 1St Reading

2. Ordinances 2″d Reading

a. Ordinance 2009-36: AN ORDINANCE OF THE TOWN OF LAUDERDALE-

BY THE SEA, FLORIDA, AMENDING CHAPTER 30 “UNIFIED LAND

DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS,” ARTICLE V “ZONING,” DIVISION 2

“DISTRICTS,” SECTION 30-261 “B-1-A DISTRICT-BUSINESS” IN ORDER

TO PROVIDE THAT COMMUNITY THEATRES AND CULTURAL

CENTERS ARE PERMITTED USES IN THE B-1-A DISTRICT; FURTHER

SEVERABILITY; PROVIDING FOR CODIFICATION; AND PROVIDING

FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

Bc- This is to allow for theaters in the bus. district- will pass 5-0

b. Ordinance 2009-35: AN ORDINANCE OF THE TOWN OF LAUDERDALE-

BY-THE-SEA, FLORIDA AMENDING CHAPTER 30 “UNIFIED LAND

DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS,” ARTICLE V “ZONING,” DIVISION 2

“DISTRICTS,” SUBDIVISION L “SUPPLEMENTAL REGULATIONS,”

SECTION 30-313 “GENERAL PROVISIONS” OF THE CODE OF

ORDINANCES; PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY, CODIFICATION, AND

AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

BC- This will go backĀ  to the drawing board…The problem in Town is that no one finishes up decisions on the dais with what the final direction is…In this case the comm. after discussion left the impression they were allowing front yard pools to the ord. that was to clear up side yard pools for corner lots…The P & Z (prev. post) saw this and voted it down…Because we do not have a real Development Director in charge and one that comes to the Comm. meetings …the comm. voted move to 2nd reading without any discussion or realizing their mistake and the P&Z’s vote (it was in the backup) …thus it will need to be re-done to exclude front yard pools…OOPS!…

2010 (Assistant Town Manager Olinzock) -Deferred at the January 12,

2010 Commission Meeting by Commissioner Dodd

BC- Strange this is on- as the rules made by the comm. is every 3 months…if they do it for Village Grille they need to do it for Athena -101 Ocean..From the response throughout Town it needs to return to a n annual yearly special event permit for both nights…any funny business against the Sat. night event interjected will show up at the polls at the March 9th election!…

b. Discussion and/or action – Hillsboro Inlet -Deferred at the January 12,

2010 Commission Meeting by Commissioner Dodd – Applications

attached

BC- prev. agenda post had who was on…including Frank Rysavy former longtime Hillsboro Inlet Rep. for LBTS who was required to pay fine for hiring his son for a job…..and the unqualified gal-pal of Comm. Clottey (who instigated this mess-after a burger & fries with new BFF M.r Oliver [Parker] who changed his mind) …others who applied Editor Mark Brown, Chamber Board member Yann Brandt and Comm. Stuart Dodd…

The Hillsboro Inlet met for their Jan. meeting last night (1-25) and will meet only 1 more timeĀ  before the march election…So for Clottey to go forth with this will cost the taxpayers, and Hillsboro for possibly 1 meeting before it is changed again…CLUELESS!….

c. Discussion and/or action by Town Commission regarding appointment of a

Local Complete Count Committee for the purpose of building awareness of

the 2010 Census (Assistant Town Manager Olinzock) -Deferred at the

January 12, 2010 Commission Meeting by Vice Mayor Mc-Intee –

Application attached

BC- Still only one taker…

d. Discussion and/or action regarding amendment to the current BSO Contract

(Chief Llerena) -This item was deferred at the January 12, 2010

Commission Meeting by Commissioner Silverstone

BC- the Town Manger and others want to keep to the “hybrid” hours schedule that both BSO & Town say is working well…look for the status quo to remain…no to 12 hr. shifts…

e. Discussion and/or action to have the Town Engineer research the traffic flow

on Imperial Lane to see if signage or a barrier is needed to prevent through

traffic from A1A from entering this street (Commissioner Clottey) -This item

was deferred at the January 12, 2010 Commission Meeting by

Commissioner Silverstone

BC- 2 camps on this one?…Looks like some want to pay for it themselves/ others have an alternative to doing it all….

16. NEW BUSINESS

a. Discussion and/or action: Commission to consider approving amendments to

Ordinance 6-42 “Maintenance of sites under development” (Assistant Town

Manager Olinzock)

authorization for Town Manager to negotiate contract agreement for

completion of the design (Assistant Town Manager Olinzock)

BC- There were 14 companies that applied and the Asst. TM want the comm. to allow the Manger a “short list” of 3 to negotiate with…This writer say NO!…Not this manager – she should not be allowed any unilateral negotiating no way no how!…

d. Discussion and/or action regarding updating Fire Suppression System in

Jarvis Hall Kitchen (Assistant Town Manager Olinzock)

BC- from the backup it appears that Jarvis Hall’s kitchen needs the stove to be in compliance with fire safety codes as the fire dept. is requiring of other community used stoves throughout town… Assumption was required…Was the Community Church?….

e. Discussion and/or action to direct the Town Attorney to proceed with legal

action against Terry Arthur regarding Greenfest (Vice Mayor Mclntee)

BC- What a waste of time for the taxpayers footing the legal expenses from our hourly rate Town law firm…..McIntee has been M.I.A. since he was tossed aside by both the VFD and the CIC to rule another year in the VFD department and another term the dais…If he’s smart he’ll take a powder on this loser…as well!…Move on!…

f. Discussion and/or action: safety barrier for the north entrance of Bel-Air (SE

15th Street) Mayor Minnet

BC- Continuing on in her efforts to put public safety issues first and foremost- after getting a request to look at a problem that calls for quick attention in Bel Air, Mayor Minnet has put this on to do just that.

g. Discussion and/or action on rules for Senior Center Activities (Commissioner

Dodd)

BC- What a mess- the Senior Center is still in disarray as a result of the one-two “punch” it took from Comm. Clottey-TM Colon and a disgruntled outspokne CIC member who have it in for the Director… They are trying to make him not viable to continue on…The Director has been unfairly targeted by the TM as doing something wrong over the past years…NOT TRUE!… The Director ALWAYS HAD 2 LISTS!… and he was annually audited in Jarvis Hall by both the Town and Broward County!…The blame for all the mess rests squarely on these 3 women!… And we extend our apologies to the Director that he is just the latest victim of the Town Manager’s wrath!…Hang on …March 9th is coming!…
