NEW ORDINANCE PENDING

At a Special Commission Meeting held on December 19, the Commission and Town Attorney Dennis Bayer discussed a proposed "Floodplain Management" Ordinance that the State and FEMA want municipalities to approve throughout Florida.

The proposed Ordinance is available for inspection at the Town Hall. 
Passed on first reading, the second and final reading is scheduled
for the April 3, 2017, Commission Meeting.



CONTRACT AWARDED FOR
#1 WALKOVER RENOVATION


At its regularly scheduled meeting on March 6, 2017, the Commission unanimously awarded the contract for handicap assisted conversion of
the "#1" walkover (behind the Town Hall buildings) to Charles Burgan, LLC. 

The Request for Bids was duly advertised in the Daytona News-Journal, but the Town received no responses to the advertisement.  Burgan, LLC is the contractor that was also awarded the contract to reconstruct walkovers #3 and #4 that were completely destroyed by Hurricane Matthew in October 2016.  Mr. Burgan's bid was the only qualified proposal received at the Town Hall by the published deadline.  Work should begin soon with the completion date target of opening prior to the May 1 start of turtle nesting season.

The finished structure will finally give our residents the long-hoped-for ability
to more easily access the beach for those who are mobility challenged, as well as
easier access for those with fishing gear, coolers, etc.  Stay tuned for more information!

UPCOMING MEETING DATES:

COMMISSION WORKSHOP MEETING
The Commission will hold a "Workshop" meeting on Wednesday, March 22nd, at 4 p.m. in the meeting room.  The topic of discussion will be a petition submitted by some residents for review and possible change of the ordinance governing storage of recreational vehicles in driveways and non-commercial property.

Workshop meetings are open to the public; however, under state law, the Commission is not required to allow the public to speak during the meeting unless they so choose to take public comment.  Any resident who wishes to provide input to the Commission may do so in writing to the Town Clerk no later than March 20 at 2 p.m.  The Clerk will provide copies of all written input to the Commissioners for their review prior to the Workshop.

Please note that all written submissions must include your full name, address of the property you own, your mailing address if different, your telephone number, and an e-mail address if you have one.  Typed input is preferred for legibility.

Finally, please be advised that the Commission will not be taking any final action by vote at the Workshop.  The meeting is for discussion purposes and to evaluate all options.  If the Commission chooses to move forward in any matter the Town Clerk will post an official newspaper announcement and any amended ordinance language will have to undergo two separate "readings" in public before any final vote to implement.

Anyone interested in reviewing the original Ordinance in question or the petition may do so at the Town Hall during business hours.



 The next
Regular Monthly Commission Meetings will be held on Monday, April 3, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. 
and
Monday, May 1, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. 

The Agendas are available at the Town Hall or by calling the Clerk.


Commission meetings are typically held the FIRST MONDAY of each month, unless otherwise noticed.
Meetings are conducted in the building behind
the Town Hall.  Enter through the door on the
north side of the building (facing the Campground).
Anyone who wishes to attend and has mobility issues or needs special considerations should contact the Town Clerk at least 72 hours in advance at 386-439-6888.
