Ordinances 1st Reading…

10a- 2009-06…To provide the definition of swales…To impose the responsibility for maintaining swales on adjoining property owner (s) ans To regulate what can be places or planted in swale areas…

BC-The Town Attorney spoke about the pre-existing swales…and what will now be imposed restrictions for those swales….what was confusing and may bring this one all the way back to the drawing board….something we have seen with so many of the Ordinances brought to the dais in recent months…is the confusion over what is “legally paved” and what is not…what will be taken back and made “green”…and the “imposing” the maintenance of town owned property to the property owners(s)…this one passed 4-1¬† Mayor Minnet dissenting …despite the confusion…

10b- 2009-17…Creating a section of the code and amending a section of the code that basically prohibits “ugly” covers from covering boats…they now have to be “custom fit”…passes 4-1 Vice Mayor McIntee dissenting…

BC- The VM dissented …A- because he was asleep at the wheel….B – he realized this came from Comm. Dodd….C- he likes “ugly” covers…or D. it can be ugly and ill fitting as long as it’s not the Pier sign!….

Ordinnaces 2nd Reading-

a. 2009-03…The fire alarm fees …after clearing up that yet again last minute memorandum was given…It passed 5-0…

b.-2009-08…DA BOATS…back again…but this time…the pro- boats residents…had equal competition from the no- boats residents…the speakers had competing petitions…and the numbers were now looking like their ship was sunk…With new information…and some “under the wire” shenanigans with an influx of boats…and trailers suddenly making their way into the neighborhood…Bad move…The Commissioners on board with the pro-boat crowd felt they were taken on a ride…None too pleased…. the expanded version of this 2nd reading Ordinance was suddenly shipwrecked…and sent back to the drawing board…allowing a verifiable few who can prove their boats were in place in 2001 will get a “stay” for the life of the boat or the owner whichever goes first…Everybody else…better scramble…and join the “boat parade” outa there!…Unless…the Commission does an about face once more…Passes 3-2 Mayor Minnet/Comm. Clottey dissenting…

c. 2009-09….”Inoperable Boats”…must be repaired within 90 days…passes 5-0

2nd Reading Ordinances¬† coming on March 10,2009…2009-15….amending the Tennis court fee structure and use…/2009-16…EMS fees …public notices were in the 3/1/09 Sentinel….
