     Districts 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.

     Pasha Baker and Rosalie Cook accepted the Proclamation, and Ms. Cook addressed the Board to express her appreciation.  Ms. Cook stated that this really is like the beginning of the end of Black History Month and what she would like to see is their history, along with the history of all Americans who fought to make sure that this country is great, be included in the history books.  She feels that women who have contributed should also be included.

     Chairman Horan talked about the County’s Historical Museum and how they have reinitiated some great exhibits.


Agenda Item #1-A – 2018-0566

     Motion by Commissioner Carey, seconded by Commissioner Henley, to adopt appropriate Resolution #2018-R-20 recognizing Major Octavius R. Clark, United States Navy and Air Force Reserves, as Seminole County’s February 2018 Veteran of the Month.

     Districts 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.

     Major Octavius R. Clark accepted the Resolution and addressed the Board and the audience to express his appreciation.


     Commissioner Constantine discussed the success of the Veteran of the Month program and noted that there has been a suggestion that they also think about having a Veteran of the Month for a veteran that has already passed.  The Commissioner stated he is throwing that idea out there for Ed Burford because he usually picks up these ideas and runs with them.  Nicole Guillet, County Manager, advised that she thinks Commissioner Constantine will see his idea realized in May.  Commissioner Carey pointed out that there are 38,000 veterans in Seminole County and emphasized Mr. Burford does a wonderful job and that they appreciate everything that he does.


Agenda Item #2 – 2018-0558

     Districts 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.

     Carole Coleman, Animal Services Administrator, Carla Wilson, and Phyllis Ayoob, Spay N Save, accepted the Proclamation.  Ms. Coleman addressed the Board to express her appreciation.  She reported that over the past three years in regards to dogs and cats, intakes have gone down and adoptions have steadily gone up.  Ms. Coleman thanked their partners, Pet Alliance and Spay N Save, for their help with the low cost spay and neuter services they offer to Seminole County residents.  Ms. Wilson thanked the Board for recognizing this day.


Agenda Item #3 – 2018-0555

     Mike Orlando, Assistant Bear Program Coordinator for the Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC), addressed the Board to present a bear management update.  Mr. Orlando noted that Seminole County passed an ordinance in 2015.  They were the first in the state of Florida and one of the first east of the Mississippi to pass an ordinance.  Seminole broke the seal and everyone seems to be following along.  Mr. Orlando began his PowerPoint presentation (copy included in Agenda Memorandum) and compared the 2016 and 2017 Statewide Bear Management Activities.  He displayed and reviewed a graph illustrating Statewide Bear Related Calls from 2000 to 2017.  With regard to the Bear Management Activities specifically in Seminole County, Mr. Orlando reviewed a chart comparing Calls, LE Notices, Captures, Euthanized, Killed, and Relocation/Rehab in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.  In 2014, Seminole County was the number two county in the entire state for the most calls coming into FWC.  In 2016 and 2017, Seminole County had dropped to number five. 

     The Bear Activity map was displayed.  Mr. Orlando pointed out that the red dots, which depict 2017 bear calls, are starting to creep into the Oviedo and Winter Springs areas.  He noted that while they are not talking about expanding the ordinance today, that is something they may want to consider in the future.  He added he is only pointing it out so the Commissioners can have it as a frame of reference as they move forward in another five years or so. 

     Mr. Orlando talked about the BearWise Awards FY 16-17 Updates, BearWise Funding in FY 17-18, and the BearWise Awards FY 17-18 Summary.  He announced FWC is buying 3,900 sets of hardware, which are basically straps or latches that go on cans.  They consider those as a great stopgap between having nothing and having a bear-resistant garbage can.  Mr. Orlando discussed the amount of money that has been disbursed from FWC to Seminole, Lake, Orange, and Volusia Counties and pointed out that Seminole County has received the most money.  With regard to can manufacturers, he advised that the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC) certifies bear-resistant cans.  The County has been using Toter, but the Kodiak and Rehrig Pacific models have been pretested and both are fully automated. 

     Mr. Orlando reported that FWC had media outlets come to the Central Florida Zoo to observe a couple of these cans being tested inside the bear enclosure.  This was done throughout the entire state of Florida, and the bears at the Central Florida Zoo did a great job representing Seminole County.  The bears were not able to get into the cans, and it promoted everything about being BearWise in Florida.  Mr. Orlando concluded his presentation by discussing the effects of BearWise funding and stated they are thinking about doing a before-and-after survey in Seminole County to try and determine how effective the cans are and how it is impacting the residents.

     Commissioner Carey remarked that the County has had great success working with the FWC; and when she got elected, she never thought she would have to learn as much about bears as she has learned.  The Commissioner stated her community has signed up for the program, and there are a number of communities in the county where the entire subdivision has signed up for the program.  Out of the 4,200 cans that they have, they are all spoken for and they could use some more.  She suggested that if Mr. Orlando has some excess funds, he should keep Seminole County in mind, since they were the first to set the bar for the FWC. 

     Commissioner Constantine stated the Board is very proud of the ordinance, the educational program, and mostly what the citizens have been able to accomplish.  He mentioned that they have just got Sable Point to do 100%.  The County has the wonderful problem of having more requests than they have cans.  He knows staff is working with FWC and the Bear Warriors to do that stopgap measure before they can get cans to everyone that wants them.  The more that they give out, the more people want them.  He stated he could see this doubling by next year if the County had the resources.  Seminole County will always use any resources that FWC can provide to continue this process and to continue to move it forward.

     Commissioner Carey stated they just had a recent email that had some very specific instructions about how to install the bear‑resistant hinges and latches.  She requested that staff make sure that remains prominent, especially through the spring, because it is cub season.  As they continue to have new people move into the county that are not familiar with some of the wildlife issues the county has, the educational process is going to continue to be very important.  Mr. Orlando advised that all bear cubs are born around February 1; so there are a whole lot of new bear cubs out in the forest.  Chairman Horan advised that the County now includes, as part of the covenants and restrictions of any subdivision, that they have bear‑proof cans.  He stated what is gratifying to him is to see the reduction of injury‑related human/bear encounters, and what reduces that is a knowledgeable citizenry.

     Chairman Horan talked about the upgrades that are being made to the bear‑proof cans and how they operate, and Mr. Orlando responded that they are constantly making new adjustments to the cans.  Commissioner Carey stressed that they still need to work on the smaller‑sized senior can.  Mr. Orlando reported that he has talked to all three of the main companies, and they are working on 64‑gallon cans and 32‑gallon cans.  Chairman Horan stated as the market changes, innovation is going to go up.  The Chairman expressed to Mr. Orlando that it has been wonderful working with him and with the FWC. 


     Ms. Guillet announced that Item #17, Master Services Agreement PS-1566-17 related to the SCADA system, is being pulled and will be brought back to the Board at a later date. 

     With regard to public participation, no one in the audience spoke in support or in opposition to the Consent Agenda and public input was closed.

     Chairman Horan explained that as the president of the National Association of Regional Councils, Commissioner Dallari is presiding over their national meeting this week and was not able to be present at today’s BCC meeting.


     Lynn Porter-Carlton, Deputy County Attorney, updated the Board regarding the DJJ litigation.  Ms. Porter-Carlton explained that the County has prevailed time and again in that litigation.  The most recent activity is that Chief Financial Officer Patronis and the Secretary of the Department of Juvenile Justice appealed the decision in which the County had prevailed.  Since then, the Chief Financial Officer has dismissed his appeal voluntarily; however, the case will now proceed on appeal by the Secretary of the Department of Juvenile Justice.  Ms. Porter-Carlton advised that she will keep the Board informed.  The Department has until March 12 to file their initial brief, and then the County will file an answer brief.


     Sakinah Bond-Johnson, 215 Cadillac Court, addressed the Board to state that she is a homeowner.  Ms. Bond-Johnson added that she worships, she resides, she votes, she works, she pays her taxes, and she attends college in Seminole County.  She informed the Board that in March of 2017 she was approved for a home improvement grant through the Immediate Needs program.  Seminole County hired Pat Lynch Construction to renovate her two bathrooms.  Ms. Bond-Johnson talked about the problems and issues she has experienced since the start of the program and displayed a series of photographs (copies received and filed) depicting the problems. 

     Ms. Bond-Johnson submitted emails (received and filed) and explained that she went through the proper chain of command and went to the Director to get the issues addressed.  Some of the issues have been addressed, but there are two issues that still remain.  She stated she was harassed.  Ms. Bond-Johnson advised that Mr. Lynch intentionally scheduled two inspections without her knowledge for spite so that she had two failed inspections (copies of the inspections were received and filed) on her door when she came home.  Ms. Bond-Johnson continued to display the photographs and informed the Board that there was a leak under the sink.  She discussed the trash she found when they pulled up the baseboard.

Since this has been brought to the Director’s attention, Commissioner Carey stated she is hoping there is some resolution going on.  The Commissioner stated that now that the Board and the County Manager have heard the matter, they can take some action to make sure this gets fixed.  Ms. Bond-Johnson noted that everything has been fixed except for the two items that remain.  She stated Pat Lynch replaced all of the toilet and sink connectors, but there was a leak under the toilet and Pat Lynch did not want to replace it.  It is extremely old.  She was told it was not in the scope of work; but if it was not in the scope of work, why did they replace everything in the two bathrooms except this one that was left behind.

Chairman Horan confirmed that the grant is under the Immediate Needs grant program, which is monitored by the Community Services Department.  Commissioner Henley asked who the staff person was that oversaw the project.  Ms. Guillet replied that she does not know who the project manager was but staff will take a look at the information and try to get the outstanding items resolved.  Commissioner Henley asked whether all of the inspections have been done, and Ms. Bond-Johnson responded that all of the inspections have been done except for the final inspection for the contractor.  Commissioner Henley asked if the job met code during the inspection, and Ms. Guillet answered that she will have to take a look at it.  Ms. Bond-Johnson stated her shower floor has been replaced three times and grout is chipping, mold is forming, and the tile is crooked and discolored.  She added that it does not drain properly.

Commissioner Henley asked if staff knows how much the project has cost, and Chairman Horan asked how much the loan was for.  Ms. Bond-Johnson stated she believes it was $10,000.  It was determined that Ms. Bond-Johnson lives in Commissioner Henley’s district.  Chairman Horan informed Ms. Bond-Johnson that she brought the issue to the people who can shed light on it, and they will have the County Manager look over the situation and get back to her.  The Chairman added that the office that Ms. Bond-Johnson should handle this through is Commissioner Henley’s.  He suggested when she wants to dialogue about this, she should dialogue through Commissioner Henley’s office.  Ms. Guillet stated her office can try to handle it and suggested that Ms. Bond-Johnson speak with Bruce McMenemy, the Deputy County Manger, right now.  She added that they have people from Community Services here today also.  They will try and resolve this.

Commissioner Carey stated the County does hire contractors to provide services, and it has been a challenge to get really good qualified contractors who are there for the long haul.  The Commissioner emphasized that if they have issues with contractors, especially if they have multiple issues with contractors, she wants to make sure they are not leaving the contractors out there but are terminating them.  She requested that they make sure they have the right people working for the County who are trying to help the County’s citizens.  Chairman Horan suggested that Ms. Bond-Johnson work through the County Manager’s Office.  He reminded her she is in Commissioner Henley’s district.

Speaker Request Form for Ms. Bond-Johnson was received and filed.


Chairman Horan recessed the meeting at 10:38 a.m., reconvening at 1:34 p.m. with all Commissioners and all other Officials, with the exception of Deputy Clerk Jane Spencer who was replaced by Deputy Clerk Terri Porter, who were present at the Opening Session.


     Motion by Commissioner Henley, seconded by Commissioner Constantine, to authorize the filing of the proof of publication for this meeting's scheduled public hearing into the Official Record.

     Districts 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.




Agenda Item #22 – PH-2018-0505

Proof of publication calling for a public hearing to consider approval of a 1,346-square-foot dock on property located on the north side of South Sylvan Lake Drive, approximately 2,290 feet south of West SR 46, and more particularly known as 7000 South Sylvan Lake Drive, Cameron Macon, received and filed.

     Mary Robinson, Planning & Development Division, addressed the Board to present the item as outlined in the Agenda Memorandum.  She noted the dock will be 14.2 feet high and meets the 7 requirements in Section 70.7 of the Land Development Code.  The applicant is replacing a 1,297-square-foot dock that has already been demolished.  Also, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection has issued the Applicant a general-use permit for the dock.  Staff recommends approval of the request.

     Brian Hall, with Fortress Marine Construction on behalf of the Applicant, addressed the Board and stated they demolished the previous dock due to damage from the storm, and they will comply with all requirements in building the new dock.

     With regard to public participation, no one in the audience spoke in support or in opposition to Item #22, and public input was closed.

Motion by Commissioner Carey, seconded by Commissioner Henley, to approve the request for a 1,346-square-foot dock on property located on the north side of South Sylvan Lake Drive, approximately 2,290 feet south of West SR 46, and more particularly known as 7000 South Sylvan Lake Drive, as described in the proof of publication; Cameron Macon, Applicant; Approval Development Order #17-56000001.

Districts 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.

Commissioner Carey noted that she has already mentioned to staff and would like to ensure the County Manager is aware so she can follow up on it, that in most cases, dock heights are 15 feet in most jurisdictions, but Seminole’s brochure for residential docks still states 10 feet; however, the Land Development Code says 15 feet.  She added many people in her district had issues with docks that were only 10 feet high when Hurricane Irma came through because their boats reached the roof of the docks, which can create damage to both the dock and the boat.  She would like the information to be made consistent.


     Meloney Lung, Assistant County Manager, addressed the Board to report that last week, the House and Senate approved their respective $87 billion spending plans.  The Senate has a $1 million higher budget request than the House, and they are quite different in some marked areas like environmental issues, Medicaid funding, and education for K-12 public schools and the 12 universities.  She noted the Legislature has until March 6th to have it completed to meet the closing of session. 

     Ms. Lung advised the County’s two appropriation requests are in both the House and Senate sides of the budget.  The request in connection with the DJJ is not in the budget, but it will be put in the Senate’s budget and the House will follow.  They have added the two for a fire station and a fire truck.

     Ms. Lung stated she is sure the Board is aware of some of the home rule issues including the vacation rentals, HB 773 and SB 1400.  That is going to prohibit counties and cities from establishing ordinances and would instead require local regulation activities to be associated throughout all residential properties and be applied uniformly.  She noted this is being heard this afternoon in the House Government Accountability Committee, and their lobbyist and FAC are working to oppose this as well as Disney. 

     In regard to tree trimming, SB 574 and HB 521 are the tree trimming, removal and harvesting proposals.  SB 574 was in its first committee this morning, Community Affairs, where it passed 3 to 2.  She explained the bill is concerning because it would preempt local governments’ regulations from pruning, trimming, and removal of tree vegetation at a single-family residence during a declared emergency.  Additionally, the strike-all would make local government liable to electric utilities if the local vegetation management plan practice or ordinance adversely impacts the electrical company.  It would also eliminate the exemption to allow for protection of historical specimens of trees.  It did pass this morning and they are following this one closely; however, the House Bill has not been in its first committee yet. 

     County Manager Nicole Guillet asked if anyone from their legislative delegation voted this morning.  Commissioner Constantine said he spoke to Senator Simmons this morning, who is on the committee and had the deciding vote.  Senator Simmons indicated to the Commissioner that he did not support the bill; he did vote for it but with a number of changes he said would need to be made and that he could not support it if it wasn’t fixed.  Commissioner Constantine said he believes the Senator is being considerate to the sponsor but letting him know that it will not pass any further committees; it still has three committees to go.  He believes it will not go further but thinks to reinforce their position with Senator Simmons is important.  Chairman Horan questioned what other committees it would need to go through.  Commissioner Constantine stated he thinks they are Appropriations, Rules, and Environmental Preservation.  Ms. Lung said she will verify that.

     Commissioner Carey opined they could help support the community on these kind of issues by not requiring trees that are going to become big trees to be planted under power lines.  They still do that in their Land Development Code and in their landscape ordinances.  Even though the power company will not let certain species be planted under their lines, she said the County should just figure out a way to offset them somewhere else on a site rather than at the power line.  She thinks they can help be part of the solution to what was experienced during the hurricane.

     In regard to payday loans, Ms. Lung advised that SB 640 is the Consumer Finance pilot program; it has been voted on favorably in the Banking and Insurance Committee, as well as Commerce and Tourism, so it only has the Rules Committee to go through now.  It appears to her that they are totally rewriting everything that was done in 2001.  The loan limits are being increased from $5,000 to $10,000.  There is no database for tracking to ensure that there is only one loan at a time, so rollover loans could be possible.  Interest rates are increased and it looks like there is no requirement for credit counseling.  Ms. Lung stated they spoke with Alex Setzer, the County’s lobbyist, today and he is going to go speak to the sponsor on this.

     Lastly, Ms. Lung stated in regard to the Constitutional Revision Commission, they brought forward 37 proposals and they are doing 5 public meetings in Fort Lauderdale, Melbourne, Jacksonville, Pensacola and St. Petersburg.  After that, they will decide which of the 37 they will move forward, and they will see what is on the ballot at that point.  Ms. Lung indicated she will send the Board a list of the 37 proposals.  Commissioner Carey remarked it is interesting that they don’t have a public hearing planned for Central Florida because the Central Florida corridor is pretty important to most statewide officials. 

     Commissioner Constantine stated this County took a very strong stand about payday loans.  He noted he was very proud to do the 2001 bill that passed both Houses unanimously.  He explained the payday loans have worked so well because they have gotten rid of the bad players and they have competition among themselves now.  So it is working so well that they think they can increase and change it.  He pointed out the biggest problem they had was with the rollovers and now they are instituting the rollovers again; he opined it is crazy.  The rollovers are what increase the interest rates exponentially. 

     Commissioner Constantine stated that last week at the Florida Association of Counties meeting in regard to the constitutional amendments, they talked a lot about it and they are all happy that 95 went away.  There are still a couple of proposals that are problematic, 13 and 26, and they are very supportive of 61.  He noted the good news is the Senate has taken a strong stand on not sweeping Sadowsky and affordable housing funds; the bad news is the House is sweeping a great deal of it.  That is going to be a very strong point of contention.  Unfortunately, Representative Cortes on this County’s legislative delegation did have a bill about waiving impact fees, which really isn’t waiving impact fees because they still have to pay for them.  In conversations with Representative Cortes, he said he has discovered that people are going to have to pay them anyway.  Commissioner Constantine stated he thinks the Representative has decided to take the impact fee section out of that bill, so hopefully they won’t have to concern themselves with that anymore since they already have the option to pay for the impact fees if they want to, and he opined they should have that option. 

     Chairman Horan advised he will be going up to Tallahassee next week and will be meeting with the lobbyist, and they have a schedule of legislators to meet with with regards specifically to the two items on DJJ.  With regards to the items that relate to the fire station and also the fire engine, he stated he had a discussion with Senator Simmons, and those items are still alive.  They may need some massaging and it may have to be in conference if they are able to get those, but there are certain legislators that need to be talked to with regards to that and they are going to be identified by Mr. Setzer.  He added he’ll try to get in touch with them as well.  Chairman Horan indicated he will be up there on behalf of the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness as well, speaking to a number of legislators on exactly the Sadowsky issue, and they will all be in the House.  Hopefully, he can get some kind of an audience with leadership and see if they can get some kind of a feeling as to exactly what may cause leadership in the House to see the light on this particular issue.  He said he suspects that there are other things that leadership needs and that usually identifying that particular element is what usually turns the day, but eventually the House and the Senate will find out exactly where they are going to meet on this because he thinks this is the first year where the Sadowsky affordable housing issue is really getting a lot of juice.  The problem with it is it is needed quite a bit and so he thinks the House is probably going to be changing its attitude with regards to that because there is too much critical mass of effort behind not sweeping everything.  He added that of course last year, this Board saw that they included a few hundred million dollars, which was in the Sadowsky fund, which was the first year in the last seven years that they hadn’t swept every penny of it.  So it is certainly important for Seminole County; they have a couple of projects that need that funding and they are really hoping that is something they will start funding again. 


District 4

     Commissioner Henley thanked the County Manager for arranging for three volunteers from the Sheriff’s Office and three from the Fire Department for an event that took place last Friday night.  It was entitled “Night Out for Special Needs Youngsters” and took place at the church at SR 434 in Winter Springs.  The volunteers donated their time from 5:30 to 9:30 that night at a very special event.  He described it was a prom night for special needs young people, so the volunteers at the church helped them get dressed and do all the things to get ready for a prom.  He stated they were one happy group and noted it is sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.  Tim Tebow was not present because there are 765 churches that were hosting one of these events in 11 countries, but he was there through video.  Commissioner Henley noted that he did announce through video that each person would be crowned king or queen and each received a crown or tiara.  He wanted to publicly thank the people who were willing to volunteer their time for such a special event and they included Sergeant Mike Hawkins, Deputy Joe Guzman and Deputy Stephanie Byrne from the Sheriff’s Office, and Lieutenant Mike Hodak and Nick Melton and Matt Humphrey from the Fire Department. 


     Commissioner Henley stated in all the years they have had a contract with the Central Florida Sports Commission, this Board never had any input into who was representing Seminole County.  But under the new contract, this Board has the right to submit who they would like to have representing them, and he said he thinks they need to go ahead and fill the position on that board since the contract is already in force.  He stated he would like to recommend Commissioner Constantine if he is willing to serve because he thinks he would represent them well.  The Commissioners discussed the issues in connection with serving on a 501(C)(3) organization’s board.  Commissioner Henley noted there is someone representing the County now, but the Board did not have any input on that, but when the contract was negotiated, they negotiated that this Board would be able to submit an additional person, so they would technically have two representatives on the board.

     Motion by Commissioner Henley, seconded by Commissioner Constantine, to appoint Commissioner Constantine to represent the Seminole County Board of County Commissioners on the Central Florida Sports Commission Board of Directors.

     Districts 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.

     Commissioner Henley confirmed that Chairman Horan will send this information to the Sports Commission under his signature.  Chairman Horan stated he would like to ensure the County Attorney, who has raised all the issues before about serving on a non-profit’s board, be cognizant of this appointment.

District 5

     Commissioner Carey reported she was meeting with some constituents yesterday to talk about abandoning a portion of a right-of-way, so she had staff talk to them further about the situation.  The situation is they have a road that runs for two blocks, and the engineering manual requires that for any lot on a road, that road must be built to county standards.  In this case, there are already two houses on this road, and that road is not built to county standards because it was probably before the engineering manual changed in 2015.  She opined sometimes things sound good but there are unintended consequences that start to crop up that they need to go back and look at.  She stated the existing two houses have a stabilized driveway with gravel, but there are three other lots.  One recently sold and one has been owned for many years, and the problem is now they would need to build a road to county standards in order to use their land.  She said that just doesn’t seem right to her. 

     Commissioner Carey stated she would like staff to look at the changes made to the engineering manual that required that.  She noted there are many roads in her district which are individually platted homes but it’s like a subdivision and the roads don’t meet county standards because that wasn’t the standard at the time.  Now if someone buys a vacant lot and wants to build a house, they are told they have to bring the road up to county standards.  She realizes that the County Engineer can waive some of those requirements, but she doesn’t think the citizens should be put through that nor does she think it should be that subjective.  Therefore, she would like them to go back and look at how the language was written and look at these situations because she knows they have had this situation about a half dozen times previously, but this one kind of just brought it to a head.  You have two people already there and three people potentially trying to build a house and somebody has to build a county road to county standard, which basically condemns their property.

     Ms. Guillet said they can certainly look at that but the biggest consideration is access by public safety vehicles.  On the other side of that, they have a number of private roads that are not built to county standards that they have issues with, either getting access or after they have accessed them, and there has been damage or some other difficulty.  She stated she thinks they can balance those two interests and she thinks there is room for improvement.  Commissioner Carey said they still have some dirt roads in this county and off of Wilson Road, there is a pine needle road and the fire trucks can get through it; it is cleared and it is stabilized.  She thinks there needs to be some level of access for the Fire Department with public safety always being their number one priority, but to have to build a road to county standards is not necessarily the answer. 

     Commissioner Henley stated he agrees completely with what Commissioner Carey is saying, but he wants to make sure that they do not create some unintended consequences.  For example, at the Rolling Hills golf course, all the roads are substandard, so he thinks they should be able to make exceptions for these types of situations.  He would not want it to come back to them later with people saying they would like to be exempted.  Commissioner Carey stated she is not talking about a developer coming in and developing more than one home; she is talking about the individual lot owner.  This one lady has owned this lot for years and intended to retire there, and she is 100 feet in from either direction, and to be told you have to build a road to county standards in order to be able to build your house is just not reasonable. 


     Commissioner Carey noted she had an opportunity last week to attend the Orlando Economic Partnership barbeque down on the Boulevard.  It was well attended and it was nice that a Seminole County local restaurant, “Smokehouse at Route 46” in Sanford, was the one barbeque place selected to represent Seminole County.  They were also recognized in Southern Living Magazine on barbeque places to have on your bucket list, and they were the only one selected from Florida. 


     Commissioner Carey said she wanted to give a shout out and kudos to their stormwater and roads crews; her office is still getting correspondence from residents who during the hurricane had direct contact with them.  She added they can’t say enough about what a great job they did, how professional they were, how important it was to them and how comforted they felt to know they could pick up the phone and call somebody and actually get somebody to respond.


     Commissioner Carey expressed she also wanted to thank Sunniland Corporation publicly.  She has known the Moore family for many years and she knows that many people call on them many times for community events and charitable contributions.  She recently called on them to help with a project in Bookertown.  The Bookertown Community Center was in need of a roof, but they did not have the money to buy the materials.  So, Tom Moore, the owner, and Chris Frank donated all the roofing materials to replace the well-worn roof.  She knows the folks in Bookertown are grateful and added she certainly appreciates them doing that.

District 3

     Commissioner Constantine listed the meetings he will be attending in the near future.  He also stated the County will be receiving an award from the Sierra Club for their fertilizer ordinance.  Additionally, he advised the FDOT stakeholders’ meeting concerning rest areas and truck stops is on February 23rd at their offices at 10:00 a.m.  Chairman Horan confirmed that is the stakeholder meeting for the district-wide truck stop study which is going to be held at FDOT’s district office on South Semoran Boulevard.  He advised he cannot attend because he will be in Tallahassee.  Commissioner Constantine noted he will be going after the Leadership Seminole meeting, and the Chairman asked that he ensure Commissioner Dallari knows about it as well.  Commissioner Constantine noted that a lot of their citizens will be there.  Chairman Horan added that a lot of the developers who are looking at those properties should also be there.


     Commissioner Constantine said Commissioner Carey, who was appointed by this Board, and he, appointed by the Governor as Chairman of the Wekiva Commission, attended a meeting on February 6th at the Wekiva Springs Park Youth Conference Hall.  One of the things that was presented that he has talked to the County Manager and others about already was that the district director of the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) was talking about a grant program in which they would pay 75% of the total amount for upgraded septic tanks for those that wanted to have them.  He believes they had to be in an area like the Wekiva area; it is statewide and on a first-come, first-served basis.  The resident would only have to pay 25% up to $10,000.  He believes there are about 200 available in this area; however, people need to make the request.  Commissioner Carey asked the County Manager to let them know when she has more details.


     Commissioner Constantine stated he would like to get an update at a future meeting on their recycling program.  He knows there are concerns about not having markets anymore, but they also have the goal to be 75% in 2020 and he knows an increment came from the DEP concerning 2017.  So, he would like to see how they are doing and what the plans are for now and the long term.


     Chairman Horan asked Commissioner Carey to report on the airport since it is in her district.  Commissioner Carey advised it was brought to her attention yesterday by the County Manager, and she had just gotten the information as well, that there was an item on the Sanford City Commission’s agenda for yesterday.  It was a request from the Orlando Sanford Airport which basically would have put a six-month moratorium on any development completely around the airport with the potential of an additional six-month moratorium.  As she started reading the background, it said that the County, the City and the Airport had been in discussions about this for quite some time and that was the reason they were bringing this forward.  Chairman Horan stated not only did they just get this information yesterday morning, but they also had not had any discussions about it.  Commissioner Carey stated she talked to a couple of the Sanford City Commissioners and the Mayor, who was just as upset as she was, because he also serves on that committee as a non-voting member, and this had not really been discussed at those meetings. 

     Commissioner Carey advised the Airport had a workshop prior to their Commission meeting that she could not attend due to a conflict in her schedule, so she asked Ms. Guillet to attend and Chairman Horan went as well.  After Diane Crews, the director of the Airport, found out how upset everybody was about it, she requested the item be withdrawn.  Commissioner Carey did take the opportunity when she did arrive to speak to the City Commission about it and to set the record straight.  She told them they would follow up with a letter, which Ms. Guillet has drafted and the Commissioner said she has since reviewed that letter, basically to set the public record straight. 

Commissioner Carey stated for the most part, they have a great relationship with the Airport and with the City of Sanford.  Certainly to have something like this come forward from the Airport was very disappointing and she expressed her disappointment and concerns to Ms. Crews last night when she was finally able to have a discussion with her, and she will continue to keep her eye on it.  It has been tabled indefinitely and in fact, Sanford’s City Commissioner Woodruff added that they have tabled it forever.

Commissioner Carey advised she has asked for the last full active year of minutes of their Economic Development Commission meetings and any sporadic ones in the last six months.  The Airport has hired a real estate advisory company.  Ms. Crews said she would also send the report that came out of there and Commissioner Carey noted she will be sure to share that with this Board as well.

     Chairman Horan pointed out that as much as a year and a half ago, maybe even longer, he had some wide-ranging discussions with the then chairman of the airport board about the property around the airport, including the County’s property that is close to the existing Sports Complex.  They talked seriously about a joint study, sharing in a study of the airport property, but apparently they went ahead on their own and just did a study of the airport property, which to him is kind of like “drawing an offensive play on a piece of paper but you don’t put the defense on the field.”  It is always going to work because if you are not going to understand what might be happening on all of the County land, it doesn’t seem to him to make a lot of sense to do that study.  Commissioner Carey stated maybe there will be some evidence in the minutes that pointed it in this direction, but at the end of the day, the Airport’s role is to make sure that the Airport is developed and growing and sustainable.  She remarked that without any notice at all, this moratorium could have actually happened without the knowledge of anyone.  She thinks the County Manager should assign some staff to review these City Commission agendas, and maybe they might want to have staff attend their committee meetings.

     Chairman Horan asked what they normally do in terms of being advised about what is going on in their cities.  Ms. Guillet responded that normally they have very good communication with the cities and she is not sure exactly what happened here, so this really is not reflective of a normal communication between the Cities and the County.  They can certainly assign somebody because she thinks it is actually a sound practice to do that.  She stated they are certainly not opposed to working with the Airport and the City of Sanford to look at land uses.  She does not want any of what happened yesterday to give anybody the impression that they are not willing to work with both entities and to collaboratively come up with some positive suggestions and recommendations for land use patterns around the area and in other parts of the county.  She also would like to just recognize the City yesterday, because when they understood that there was some concern with respect to this proposal, they immediately addressed it and frankly shared their concerns as well.  Commissioner Carey added that once Ms. Crews was aware of all the opposition that was there, she herself requested the item be withdrawn.  Commissioner Carey expressed she was not really going to report on this since everyone was already aware of it, but she thinks it ended well, and they will just continue to try to work together to make sure they all do what is in the best interest of their citizens and landowners.

District 2

     Chairman Horan stated he has in his district the second largest mosque in the nation.  He got the opportunity to visit it with other public officials and business leaders invited by the Husseini Islamic Center to tour the Masjid Al Hayy mosque.  The County Manager also attended.  They had several speakers who explained some of the customs, practices and traditions of the Islamic faith.  Commissioner Carey added that it is very elaborate and the craftsmanship inside is totally so “old world”; they brought craftsmen in from various countries to do a lot of that work.  The mosque used to be in her district before the lines were redrawn, and it was a very controversial structure because it has a 100-foot spire in the middle of a somewhat rural and residential area.  She opined they have, hopefully, all learned to be good neighbors and work together out there.  Chairman Horan noted it was $20 million and is 42,000 square feet.  The interior is gorgeous and much of the mosque is made up of classrooms with up-to-date technology.  He thanked the Center for hosting the event and inviting all the public and business leaders to it.  He noted if you get a chance to see this house of worship, it is truly unique and beautiful.


     Chairman Horan announced there is another seat available to them on the work force board, CareerSource.  They currently have three seats occupied by Wendy Brandon, Richard Sweat, and David Sprinkle.  He stated he has a gentleman that was nominated by the construction industry who is a CFO and partner of a Longwood engineering firm called MiGre Engineers.  He wants to throw that open because he does not see any reason why they should not take advantage of having another board member.  Commissioner Carey asked whether the Chairman is going to confirm with Mr. Matthew Walton that he would like to serve and then bring it back for a formal recommendation, and he replied that he will.


     Chairman Horan reported he attended the Cost of Poverty Experience on February 7th that was sponsored by the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness here in Seminole County.  He stated they are the only county that sponsored their own simulation.  It was also co-sponsored by the Sheriff’s Office.  He explained basically, you simulate a family in poverty and you go through a three-week set of circumstances over a three-hour period that simulates what the poverty experience is all about.  He learned so much about what it is like to live on the edge, and he described what happened to his “family” in the simulation.  He indicated it really opens your eyes to the kind of institutional impediments and just fate impediments of living in poverty and how easy it is to slip into homelessness.  He said it was a great experience and that he hopes Osceola County takes it up as well.


     Chairman Horan thanked staff in Economic Development & Community Relations along with those in SGTV in connection with preparation for the “State of the County.”  He opined they had a great year and he is looking forward to telling everybody about their citizens and how resourceful this county is in the face of wildfires, hurricanes, opioid addiction, Zika, and Puerto Rican evacuees.
