8/6/09 09:12:05 TAMPA.
8/6/09 09:12:08 AN OVERALL
8/6/09 09:12:09 BUDGET OF
8/6/09 09:12:09 $7,054,000,000INGS INCLUDING
8/6/09 09:12:11 ENTERPRISE GENERAL IN BOND
8/6/09 09:12:12 FUNDS.
8/6/09 09:12:14 OUR TAX OPERATING FUND, WHICH
8/6/09 09:12:17 IS THE ONE THAT WE TEND TO
8/6/09 09:12:19 FOCUS ON IS $425 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:12:22 OUR MILAGE RATE WILL
8/6/09 09:12:25 REMAIN THE
8/6/09 09:12:26 SAME AT 5.7326.
8/6/09 09:12:28 COUNCIL MEMBERS I WOULD LIKE TO
8/6/09 09:12:30 PRESENT THIS YEAR'S BUDGET IN
8/6/09 09:12:33 THE CONTEXT OF THE
8/6/09 09:12:34 PAST THREE
8/6/09 09:12:35 YEAR BUDGETS.
8/6/09 09:12:37 SINCE 2008 YOU KNOW WE HAVE
8/6/09 09:12:38 BEEN CUTTING BACK.
8/6/09 09:12:39 FIRST STARTLING IN 2008 BECAUSE
8/6/09 09:12:42 OF ACTIONS BY STATE
8/6/09 09:12:42 LEGISLATURE
8/6/09 09:12:45 AND AGAIN 2009 NOW 2010 BECAUSE
8/6/09 09:12:48 OF THE RECESSION THAT HAS
8/6/09 09:12:49 EFFECTED OUR NATION.
8/6/09 09:12:51 GOING BACK TO THE 2008 BUDGET
8/6/09 09:12:54 WE WERE FACED AT THAT TIME WITH
8/6/09 09:12:55 A $19 MILLION GAP THAT WE HAD
8/6/09 09:12:57 TO FILL IN ORDER TO PRESENT YOU
8/6/09 09:12:59 WITH A BALANCED BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:13:02 THEN 2009 WE HAD A $22 MILLION
8/6/09 09:13:03 GAP THAT WE NEEDED TO PRESENT
8/6/09 09:13:06 YOU WITH A BALANCED BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:13:08 THE YEAR WE'VE HAD A $51
8/6/09 09:13:10 MILLION GAP AND THAT CLEARLY
8/6/09 09:13:13 SHOWS THE EFFECT OF OUR ECONOMY
8/6/09 09:13:14 ON LOCAL GOVERNMENT.
8/6/09 09:13:16 OF COURSE YOU KNOW IT IS NOT
8/6/09 09:13:19 JUST CITY OF TAMPA, EVERY
8/6/09 09:13:21 COUNTY AND CITY THROUGHOUT THE
8/6/09 09:13:21 STATE.
8/6/09 09:13:23 IN TOTAL THEN, OVER THE PAST
8/6/09 09:13:26 THREE YEAR, WE HAVE
8/6/09 09:13:27 BEEN FACED
8/6/09 09:13:28 WITH CUTTING $92 MILLION FROM
8/6/09 09:13:28 OUR BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:13:30 I THINK WE HAVE TO LOOK AT THIS
8/6/09 09:13:32 YEAR IN THE CONTEXT OF THAT
8/6/09 09:13:32 TOTAL.
8/6/09 09:13:34 NOW WE HAVE DONE IT CAREFULLY,
8/6/09 09:13:37 WE HAVE DONE IT HOPEFULLY NOT
8/6/09 09:13:40 IN ANY DRAMATIC FASHION, JUST
8/6/09 09:13:41 IN A VERY CAREFUL, STRATEGIC
8/6/09 09:13:42 FASHION.
8/6/09 09:13:45 WE HAVE CUT OVER THE
8/6/09 09:13:47 PAST THREE
8/6/09 09:13:48 YEARS, 526 POSITION, 10 AND A
8/6/09 09:13:51 HALF PERCENT OF OUR WORK
8/6/09 09:13:52 FORCE.
8/6/09 09:13:53 WE HAVE REORGANIZED DEPARTMENTS
8/6/09 09:13:56 AND LOOKED AT DIFFERENT WAYS OF
8/6/09 09:13:56 DOING BUSINESS.
8/6/09 09:13:59 I GIVE
8/6/09 09:13:59 OUR EMPLOYEEPARTICULARLY
8/6/09 09:14:02 IT DEPARTMENT A LOT OF CREDIT
8/6/09 09:14:03 FOR ORGANIZING EFFORTS TO LOOK
8/6/09 09:14:06 AT THE WAYS IN WHICH WE CAN DO
8/6/09 09:14:08 BUSINESS DIFFERENTLY THROUGHOUT
8/6/09 09:14:10 ALL DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF CITY
8/6/09 09:14:10 GOVERNMENT.
8/6/09 09:14:12 THEY HAVE BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL.
8/6/09 09:14:14 WE HAVE CUT OPERATIONAL
8/6/09 09:14:17 EXPENSES, WE HAVE
8/6/09 09:14:17 REDUCED
8/6/09 09:14:18 OVERTIME BY 40 PERCENT.
8/6/09 09:14:20 WE HAVE REDUCED VEHICLE
8/6/09 09:14:22 REPLACEMENTS AND EQUIPMENT
8/6/09 09:14:22 PURCHASES.
8/6/09 09:14:25 WE HAVE RESTRICTED CAPITAL
8/6/09 09:14:28 PROJECTS, THIS YEAR, IN ORDER
8/6/09 09:14:31 TO CLOSE THE BUDGET GAP, WE
8/6/09 09:14:31 HAVE USED RESERVES.
8/6/09 09:14:34 NON-THE LESS, EVEN THOUGH WE
8/6/09 09:14:37 HAVE USED A VERY HEALTHY AMOUNT
8/6/09 09:14:39 OF RESERVES, WE STILL HAVE OUR
8/6/09 09:14:40 POLICY IN PLACE, 20 PERCENT OF
8/6/09 09:14:43 OUR GENERAL FUND WILL BE HELD
8/6/09 09:14:43 IN RESERVES.
8/6/09 09:14:45 SO WE HAVE THAT, WHICH IS
8/6/09 09:14:47 SOMETHING THAT AS YOU KNOW,
8/6/09 09:14:49 JUST RECENTLY, WE WERE
8/6/09 09:14:50 REAFFIRMED BY THE RATING
8/6/09 09:14:52 AGENCIES WITH OUR BOND RATING,
8/6/09 09:14:53 AND IN LARGE PART, IT IS
8/6/09 09:14:56 BECAUSE OF OUR POLICY WITH
8/6/09 09:14:57 RESERVES AND THE HEALTHY
8/6/09 09:15:00 FINANCIAL POSITION THAT
8/6/09 09:15:01 WE ARE
8/6/09 09:15:01 IN.
8/6/09 09:15:05 THIS YEAR, OUR BUDGET HAS
8/6/09 09:15:05 BEEN
8/6/09 09:15:06 BALANCED BY HAVING NO PAY RAISE
8/6/09 09:15:09 FOR ANY CITY
8/6/09 09:15:10 EMPLOYEE.
8/6/09 09:15:12 SO WHEN YOU CONSIDER THIS
8/6/09 09:15:13 YEAR'S BUDGET AND HOLD YOUR
8/6/09 09:15:14 HEARINGS, I HOPE THAT YOU LOOK
8/6/09 09:15:17 AT IT IN
8/6/09 09:15:19 THE CONTEXT OF THE $92
8/6/09 09:15:21 MILLION THAT WE HAVE CUT OVER
8/6/09 09:15:23 THREE YEARS, AND YET AT THE
8/6/09 09:15:25 SAME TIME, WE HAVE PRESERVED
8/6/09 09:15:28 THE VERY KEY SERVICES THAT OUR
8/6/09 09:15:30 PUBLIC DEPENDS UPON.
8/6/09 09:15:32 NOW, EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY, WE
8/6/09 09:15:34 CONTINUE TO MAKE PROGRESS.
8/6/09 09:15:37 AND THAT IS SO VERY
8/6/09 09:15:38 IMPORTANT.
8/6/09 09:15:40 CITIES ALWAYS HAVE TO MOVE
8/6/09 09:15:40 FORWARD.
8/6/09 09:15:42 THE INVESTMENTS WE ARE MAKING
8/6/09 09:15:44 WILL PAY DIVIDENDS IN THE LONG
8/6/09 09:15:44 TERM.
8/6/09 09:15:46 I KNOW ALL OF YOU ARE VERY
8/6/09 09:15:48 EXCITED ABOUT THE CONSTRUCTION
8/6/09 09:15:49 GOING ON DOWNTOWN WITH THE NEW
8/6/09 09:15:52 MUSEUM OF PART
8/6/09 09:15:55 CHILDREN'S
8/6/09 09:15:58 MUSEUM AND REDUE OF KYLIE
8/6/09 09:15:59 GARDENCONSTRUCTION OF HEROS
8/6/09 09:16:02 PLAZA AND HOW WE BROUGHT THE
8/6/09 09:16:04 RIVER WALK DOWN CHANNEL SIDE SO
8/6/09 09:16:06 IT WRAPS AROUND THE HISTORY
8/6/09 09:16:06 CENTER.
8/6/09 09:16:08 ALL THIS IS BEING DONE IN THE
8/6/09 09:16:09 CONTEXT OF A RECESSION BUT THAT
8/6/09 09:16:12 IS WHEN YOU NEED TO MAKE LONG
8/6/09 09:16:15 TERM INVEST 789S IN A
8/6/09 09:16:15 COMMUNITY.
8/6/09 09:16:17 IMAGINE IF WE HAD NOT EMBARKED
8/6/09 09:16:19 ON THESE PROJECTWHAT A GIFT TO
8/6/09 09:16:22 OUR COMMUNITY NEXT YEAR, WHEN
8/6/09 09:16:24 THAT ENTIRE CULTURAL DISTRICT
8/6/09 09:16:25 OPENS UP.
8/6/09 09:16:28 SUCH GREAT BENEFITS
8/6/09 09:16:29 TO OUR
8/6/09 09:16:29 RESIDENTVISITORS.
8/6/09 09:16:31 SO HERE ARE SOME NEW
8/6/09 09:16:33 INVESTMENTS CONTAINED IN THIS
8/6/09 09:16:33 YEAR'S BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:16:35 WE WILL BUILD A NEW FIRE

8/6/09 09:16:41 FOR CONSTRUCTION, TWO AND A
8/6/09 09:16:42 HALF MILLION DOLLARS.
8/6/09 09:16:44 YOU JUST APPROVED THE SAFER
8/6/09 09:16:45 GRANT SO FIREFIGHTER FOR THAT
8/6/09 09:16:48 WILL BE PHASED IN USING
8/6/09 09:16:48 FEDERAL
8/6/09 09:16:50 MONEY, ALTHOUGH ULTIMATELY, IT
8/6/09 09:16:53 WILL BE ENTIRELY CITY MONEY
8/6/09 09:16:56 WHEN THAT GRANT EXPIRES.
8/6/09 09:16:59 OUR INVESTING IN
8/6/09 09:17:01 NEIGHBOURHOODS
8/6/09 09:17:04 PROGRAM WE
8/6/09 09:17:07 INCREASED IT 17 PER

8/6/09 09:17:15 FOR SIDEWALK, TRAFFIC CALMING,
8/6/09 09:17:16 REPLACEMENT OF SIGNAGE.
8/6/09 09:17:18 WE CONTINUE TO IMPROVE THAT
8/6/09 09:17:20 NUMBER EVERY SINGLE YEAR
8/6/09 09:17:20 BECAUSE OF BUDGET ISSUES
8/6/09 09:17:23 BECAUSE IT IS SO IMPORTANT WE

8/6/09 09:17:35 IT IS SO VERY IMPORTANT SULPHUR
8/6/09 09:17:38 SPRINGS HAS A PLACE
8/6/09 09:17:39 FOR THEIR
8/6/09 09:17:41 CHILDREN IT IS A PLACE WHERE
8/6/09 09:17:44 YOUNG PEOPLE DO
8/6/09 09:17:47 NOT
8/6/09 09:17:48 HAVE
8/6/09 09:17:48 ADEQUATE RECREATIONAL
8/6/09 09:17:48 FACILITIES.

8/6/09 09:19:54 AND IN GOOD TIMEIN BAD, THAT IS
8/6/09 09:19:56 VERY IMPORTANT FOR THE LONG
8/6/09 09:19:59 TERM HEALTH OF OUR CITY.
8/6/09 09:20:00 I MUST TOUCH UPON PAY
8/6/09 09:20:00 INCREASES.
8/6/09 09:20:02 I KNOW IT IS SOMETHING THAT
8/6/09 09:20:05 PEOPLE ARE MOST
8/6/09 09:20:06 INTERESTED IN.
8/6/09 09:20:07 AND I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE
8/6/09 09:20:10 HERE IN THE AUDIENCE WHO
8/6/09 09:20:10 REPRESENT DIFFERENT UNIONS,
8/6/09 09:20:12 THEY ARE VERY INTERESTED IN
8/6/09 09:20:12 THIS ISSUE.
8/6/09 09:20:14 LET ME START OFF BY SAYING THAT
8/6/09 09:20:16 I DO NOT CONSIDER THIS AN
8/6/09 09:20:18 ADVERSARY I CAN'T LIKE ISSUE.
8/6/09 09:20:20 I KNOW THE NATURE OF
8/6/09 09:20:21 NEGOTIATIONS TENDS TO BE THAT
8/6/09 09:20:23 WAY, BUT IT IS NOT THE WAY I
8/6/09 09:20:25 LOOK AT IT AT ALL.
8/6/09 09:20:27 I THINK SO HIGHLY OF ALL OUR
8/6/09 09:20:28 EMPLOYEES.
8/6/09 09:20:30 I SING THEIR PRAISES EVERYWHERE
8/6/09 09:20:30 WE GO.
8/6/09 09:20:32 WE HAVE THE BEST EMPLOYEES ANY
8/6/09 09:20:32 WHERE.
8/6/09 09:20:34 NOT ONLY THAT BUT WITH OUR CUT
8/6/09 09:20:36 IN OUR WORK FORCE, THEY HAVE
8/6/09 09:20:37 HAD MORE TO DO.
8/6/09 09:20:38 THEY ARE GREAT.
8/6/09 09:20:39 POLICE DEPARTMENT, MY GOODNESS.
8/6/09 09:20:42 I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THEM.
8/6/09 09:20:45 THE CHIEF JUST GAVE ME
8/6/09 09:20:46 SIX
8/6/09 09:20:46 MONTH STATS.
8/6/09 09:20:49 OUR CRIME RATE CONTINUES TO GO
8/6/09 09:20:49 DOWN.
8/6/09 09:20:51 WE ARE GOING TO REACH OVER A 50
8/6/09 09:20:54 PERCENT DECREASE IN TAMPA'S
8/6/09 09:20:56 CRIME RATE IN SIX YEARS.
8/6/09 09:20:58 JUST A REMARKABLE GROUP OF
8/6/09 09:20:58 PEOPLE.
8/6/09 09:21:00 THIS DISCUSSION ABOUT PAY
8/6/09 09:21:02 INCREASES AT LEAST FROM MY VIEW
8/6/09 09:21:05 HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HOW HARD
8/6/09 09:21:07 PEOPLE WORK, WHAT THEY
8/6/09 09:21:08 CONTRIBUTE, WHAT WE THINK OF
8/6/09 09:21:10 THEM, OF COURSE WE ALL THINK
8/6/09 09:21:13 VERY HIGHLY OF THEM.
8/6/09 09:21:13 UTMOST RESPECT.
8/6/09 09:21:16 IT HAS TO DO WITH
8/6/09 09:21:17 OUR ECONOMIC
8/6/09 09:21:17 SITUATION.
8/6/09 09:21:19 PLAIN AND SIMPLE.
8/6/09 09:21:21 AND ECONOMIC SITUATION THAT IS
8/6/09 09:21:23 NOT PECULIAR TO THE CITY OF
8/6/09 09:21:23 TAMPA.
8/6/09 09:21:25 ONE ONLY NEEDS TO LOOK AT CLIPS
8/6/09 09:21:27 FROM THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF
8/6/09 09:21:29 FLORIDA TO SEE MASSIVE LAYOFFS,
8/6/09 09:21:31 MASSIVE CUTS JUST DOWN THE
8/6/09 09:21:31 STREET.
8/6/09 09:21:32 LOOK AT THE KINDS OF
8/6/09 09:21:34 CONVERSATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN
8/6/09 09:21:36 GOING ON WITH COUNTY
8/6/09 09:21:38 GOVERNMENT, ABOUT THE KINDS OF
8/6/09 09:21:41 SERVICE REDUCTIONS THEY
8/6/09 09:21:42 ARE
8/6/09 09:21:42 EXPERIENCING.
8/6/09 09:21:45 NOW, WHEN I PRESENT TO YOU
8/6/09 09:21:48 TODAY A BALANCED BUDGET, A
8/6/09 09:21:49 BALANCED BUDGET HAS TWO
8/6/09 09:21:49 MEANINGS.
8/6/09 09:21:52 ONE IS THAT THE
8/6/09 09:21:52 REVENUES EQUAL
8/6/09 09:21:53 EXPENDITURES.
8/6/09 09:21:56 THAT IS THE COMMON MEANING OF
8/6/09 09:21:56 A
8/6/09 09:21:56 BALANCED BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:21:59 BUT A BALANCED BUDGET HAS
8/6/09 09:21:59 ANOTHER MEANING.
8/6/09 09:22:01 IT MEANS IT IS BALANCED IN
8/6/09 09:22:04 TERMS OF HOW WE SERVICE THE
8/6/09 09:22:05 ENTIRE CITY OF TAMPA.
8/6/09 09:22:07 IT MEANS WE HAVE PROJECTS IN
8/6/09 09:22:10 IT, LIKE THE FIRE STATION UP IN
8/6/09 09:22:13 NEW TAMPA, IT MEANS WE
8/6/09 09:22:15 SUPPORT
8/6/09 09:22:16 OUR NONPROFIT INSTITUTIONS, WE
8/6/09 09:22:19 WORK ON AVENUE OF THE ARTS,
8/6/09 09:22:19 PUT
8/6/09 09:22:20 MONEY INTO DRAINAGE, PUT MONEY
8/6/09 09:22:22 IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS
8/6/09 09:22:25 BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE A
8/6/09 09:22:25 BALANCED
8/6/09 09:22:26 BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:22:29 BALANCED FOR THE
8/6/09 09:22:30 NEEDS OF ALL
8/6/09 09:22:31 340,000 RESIDENTS, NOT JUST THE
8/6/09 09:22:33 PEOPLE WHO COME INTO THESE
8/6/09 09:22:33 CHAMBERS.
8/6/09 09:22:35 NOT JUST THE PEOPLE WHO E-MAIL
8/6/09 09:22:37 YOU, BUT THE NEEDS, THE
8/6/09 09:22:39 INTEREST, LONG TERM OF EVERYONE
8/6/09 09:22:42 WHO LIVES IN THIS COMMUNITY.
8/6/09 09:22:42 INCLUDING PEOPLE WHO DON'T EVEN
8/6/09 09:22:45 KNOW I AM MAKING
8/6/09 09:22:47 A BUDGET
8/6/09 09:22:47 PRESENTATION TODAY.
8/6/09 09:22:50 WE MAKE --WE DELIVER A
8/6/09 09:22:52 BALANCED BUDGET FOR EVERYBODY.
8/6/09 09:22:54 FURTHER, TAMPA HAS A LARGER
8/6/09 09:22:55 ROLE IN THE COMMUNITY.
8/6/09 09:22:58 WE HAVE THE
8/6/09 09:22:59 BUSINESS CENTER,
8/6/09 09:23:00 ECONOMIC ENGINE, FOR THE WEST
8/6/09 09:23:00 COAST OF FLORIDA.
8/6/09 09:23:02 SOME TIMES WE HAVE TO MAKE
8/6/09 09:23:05 INVESTMENTS THAT EVEN GO BEYOND
8/6/09 09:23:07 JUST THE CONFINES OF OUR CITY,
8/6/09 09:23:10 THE SUPER BOWL IS A GREAT
8/6/09 09:23:10 EXAMPLE.
8/6/09 09:23:12 WE HOSTED OUR FOURTH SUPER
8/6/09 09:23:12 BOWL.
8/6/09 09:23:13 SOMETHING POSITIVE, NOT ONLY
8/6/09 09:23:16 FOR OUR RESIDENTS, BUT
8/6/09 09:23:17 THE
8/6/09 09:23:17 ENTIRE REGION.
8/6/09 09:23:20 BUT TAMPA HOSTED THAT
8/6/09 09:23:21 EVENT.
8/6/09 09:23:24 OUR BALANCED BUDGET, REFLECTS
8/6/09 09:23:26 THE NEEDS THROUGHOUT THE
8/6/09 09:23:26 COMMUNITY.
8/6/09 09:23:28 NOW WHAT IS A VERY COMMON THING
8/6/09 09:23:31 FOR PEOPLE TO SAY, WHEN
8/6/09 09:23:31 THEY
8/6/09 09:23:33 ARE GOING FOR GREATER BENEFITS
8/6/09 09:23:35 OR PAY INCREASES IS THAT IT IS
8/6/09 09:23:37 VERY EASY TO PICK UP A BUDGET
8/6/09 09:23:38 BOOK AND SAY WHY ARE YOU
8/6/09 09:23:40 PUTTING MONEY INTO THAT WHEN I
8/6/09 09:23:41 AM NOT GETTING A PAY INCREASE?
8/6/09 09:23:43 WHY ARE YOU BUILDING THE FIRE
8/6/09 09:23:46 STATION IN THAT COULD GO FOR A
8/6/09 09:23:46 PAY INCREASE.
8/6/09 09:23:48 WHY ARE YOU BUILDING A SEGMENT
8/6/09 09:23:49 OF RIVER WALK.
8/6/09 09:23:50 THAT COULD BE A PAY INCREASE.
8/6/09 09:23:53 WHY ARE YOU SOLVING THAT STORM
8/6/09 09:23:53 WATER PROBLEM.
8/6/09 09:23:54 THAT COULD BE A PAY INCREASE.
8/6/09 09:23:57 WHY DO YOU HAVE RESERVES, THAT
8/6/09 09:23:58 COULD GO FOR MY PAY INCREASE.
8/6/09 09:24:00 AN ANSWER TO THAT IS VERY
8/6/09 09:24:01 SIMPLE.
8/6/09 09:24:03 THIS IS A BALANCED BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:24:04 WE DON'T TAKE EVERY DIME THAT
8/6/09 09:24:06 WE HAVE THROUGHOUT THE BUDGET
8/6/09 09:24:09 AND PUT IT INTO A PAY INCREASE
8/6/09 09:24:09 NOT SUSTAINABLE.
8/6/09 09:24:10 WE PRODUCE A BUDGET THAT IS
8/6/09 09:24:13 GOOD FOR EVERYONE IN THE CITY
8/6/09 09:24:15 OF TAMPA AND MEETS COLLECTIVE
8/6/09 09:24:17 NEEDS FOR EVERYONE AND WHAT WE
8/6/09 09:24:19 REALLY HAVE TO LOOK AT WHEN
8/6/09 09:24:22 FOCUSSING ON PAY INCREASES, IS
8/6/09 09:24:22 OUR PAYROLL BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:24:25 IF WE COULD PUT THAT SLIDE UP.
8/6/09 09:24:28 THE ONLY SLIDE I AM GOING
8/6/09 09:24:28 TO
8/6/09 09:24:30 SHOW 20 TODAY, ONE WE WILL FOE
8/6/09 09:24:32 --TODAY, ONE WE WILL FOCUS ON
8/6/09 09:24:32 A GREAT DEAL.
8/6/09 09:24:34 I WANT PEOPLE AT HOME TO LOOK
8/6/09 09:24:34 AT THIS.
8/6/09 09:24:37 THIS IS THE GENERAL FUND
8/6/09 09:24:37 PAYROLL BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:24:38 WHEN TALKING ABOUT PAY RAISES,
8/6/09 09:24:39 THIS IS THE ONLY BUDGET WE ARE
8/6/09 09:24:40 GOING TO LOOK AT.
8/6/09 09:24:43 WE ARE NOT GOING TO LOOK AT
8/6/09 09:24:45 RESERVES, CAPITAL, OTHER
8/6/09 09:24:47 BUDGETS, WE ARE GOING TO LOOK
8/6/09 09:24:48 AT ONE BUDGET AND ONE ONLY.
8/6/09 09:24:51 WHAT IS OUR GENERAL FUND
8/6/09 09:24:51 PAYROLL.
8/6/09 09:24:54 HERE IS
8/6/09 09:24:56 THE DISTURBING TREND.
8/6/09 09:24:59 BETWEEN 2007 AND 2008 WE
8/6/09 09:25:02 CUT
8/6/09 09:25:04 275 POSITION AND OUR PAYROLL
8/6/09 09:25:06 BUDGET DIDN'T EVEN REALLY GO
8/6/09 09:25:06 DOWN.
8/6/09 09:25:09 WE CUT 275 POSITION AND OUR
8/6/09 09:25:12 BUDGET REMAINED
8/6/09 09:25:13 THE SAME.
8/6/09 09:25:16 THEN BETWEEN 2008 AND
8/6/09 09:25:17 2009 WE
8/6/09 09:25:20 CUT ANOTHER 107
8/6/09 09:25:21 POSITIONOUR
8/6/09 09:25:24 PAYROLL
8/6/09 09:25:25 WENT UP $15 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:25:27 NOW THIS YEAR WE CUT ANOTHER
8/6/09 09:25:29 145 POSITION S WITH NO PAY
8/6/09 09:25:32 INCREASE, THAT LAST BAR SHOWS
8/6/09 09:25:33 NO PAY INCREASE.
8/6/09 09:25:36 AND THE PAYROLL WENT
8/6/09 09:25:37 UP $3
8/6/09 09:25:37 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:25:39 NOW, IF THIS WERE ANY BUSINESS
8/6/09 09:25:41 PERSON WATCHING THIS, THEY
8/6/09 09:25:44 WOULD SAY, YOU'VE GOT A PROBLEM
8/6/09 09:25:44 HERE.
8/6/09 09:25:47 BECAUSE YOU'VE CUT OVER THREE
8/6/09 09:25:50 YEARS, YOU'VE CUT 10 AND
8/6/09 09:25:51 A HALF
8/6/09 09:25:54 PERCENT OF YOUR WORK FORCE BUT
8/6/09 09:25:55 YOUR PAYROLL KEEPS GOING UP.
8/6/09 09:25:57 WHY DOES IT KEEP GOING UP?
8/6/09 09:25:59 THERE ARE THREE REASONS.
8/6/09 09:26:01 ONE, PAY RAISES ALTHOUGH THAT
8/6/09 09:26:02 IS NOT THE REASON IN THIS BAR
8/6/09 09:26:05 CHART TO THE RIGHT BECAUSE
8/6/09 09:26:06 OUR
8/6/09 09:26:08 BUDGET DOESN'T INCLUDE ANY PAY
8/6/09 09:26:08 RAISES.
8/6/09 09:26:10 SECOND IS PENSION AND THIRD
8/6/09 09:26:10 MEDICAL.
8/6/09 09:26:12 THOSE ARE THE THREE REASONS.
8/6/09 09:26:13 WE CAN'T CONTROL THE PENSION.
8/6/09 09:26:16 THE COSTS ARE GOING TO GO
8/6/09 09:26:17 UP
8/6/09 09:26:19 DEPENDING ON THE STOCK MARKET.
8/6/09 09:26:22 THE MEDICAL, YOU KNOW, I
8/6/09 09:26:24 SUPPOSE WE COULD CONTROL THAT
8/6/09 09:26:26 IF WE NEGOTIATED A REALLY POOR
8/6/09 09:26:28 MEDICAL PLAN FOR OUR EMPLOYEES
8/6/09 09:26:32 BUT WHY WOULD WE DO THAT TO
8/6/09 09:26:32 OUR
8/6/09 09:26:32 EMPLOYEES.
8/6/09 09:26:35 WE DON'T WANT TO DO THAT
8/6/09 09:26:36 TO OUR
8/6/09 09:26:36 EMPLOYEES.
8/6/09 09:26:39 WE CAN'T CONTROL MEDICAL COSTS.
8/6/09 09:26:40 THEY WENT UP NINE% THIS YEAR.
8/6/09 09:26:42 THE ONLY THING WE COLLECTIVELY
8/6/09 09:26:45 CAN CONTROL, IS THE RATE
8/6/09 09:26:46 OF PAY
8/6/09 09:26:46 RAISES.
8/6/09 09:26:49 AND THAT IS THE SITUATION
8/6/09 09:26:50 WE
8/6/09 09:26:50 ARE IN.
8/6/09 09:26:51 THIS IS A CHART THAT WE ARE
8/6/09 09:26:53 GOING TO LOOK AT OVER AND OVER
8/6/09 09:26:53 AGAIN.
8/6/09 09:26:56 EVERY TIME THERE IS A
8/6/09 09:26:57 DISCUSSION OF PAY RAISES, THIS
8/6/09 09:27:00 IS THE ONLY BUDGET WE ARE
8/6/09 09:27:01 LOOKING AT.
8/6/09 09:27:04 NO OTHER BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:27:05 $274.3 MILLION PAYROLL BUDGET
8/6/09 09:27:06 FOR THE GENERAL FUND.
8/6/09 09:27:09 HOW DO WE KEEP THAT
8/6/09 09:27:11 BUDGET
8/6/09 09:27:11 UNDER CONTROL?
8/6/09 09:27:12 THAT IS OUR CHALLENGE.
8/6/09 09:27:14 WE HAVE TO BE IN THIS TOGETHER.
8/6/09 09:27:17 IT HAS TO BE A TEAM EFFORT.
8/6/09 09:27:19 YOU AND ME AND EVERY EMPLOYEE.
8/6/09 09:27:22 WE DON'T DO ANY FAVOUR TO
8/6/09 09:27:22 ANY
8/6/09 09:27:24 EMPLOYEE BY PRETENDING THAT WE
8/6/09 09:27:26 HAVE MORE MONEY THAN WE HAVE
8/6/09 09:27:29 AND THAT EVERYTHING IS STATUS
8/6/09 09:27:29 QUO.
8/6/09 09:27:32 THAT DOESN'T DO ANYBODY A
8/6/09 09:27:32 FAVOUR.
8/6/09 09:27:33 YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO BE STRAIGHT
8/6/09 09:27:35 WITH PEOPLE AND TELL IT LIKE IT
8/6/09 09:27:35 IS.
8/6/09 09:27:37 YOU HAVE TO SAY LOOK, THESE ARE
8/6/09 09:27:39 THE CHALLENGES WE HAVE AND WE
8/6/09 09:27:40 ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.
8/6/09 09:27:43 AND IF WE GO WITHOUT
8/6/09 09:27:44 A PAY
8/6/09 09:27:47 INCREASE, THEN WE
8/6/09 09:27:48 CAN SAVE
8/6/09 09:27:48 JOBS.
8/6/09 09:27:51 BUT IF WE CONTINUE TO
8/6/09 09:27:52 GIVE A
8/6/09 09:27:55 PAIN CREASE IN
8/6/09 09:27:58 THESE
8/6/09 09:28:00 TERRIBLE
8/6/09 09:28:02 ECONOMIC TIMES, THERE WILL BE
8/6/09 09:28:02 LAYOFFS.
8/6/09 09:28:05 WHILE WE HAVE BEEN VERY CAREFUL
8/6/09 09:28:08 IN LAYOFFS AND REMOVING
8/6/09 09:28:09 POSITION INCLUDING VACANT
8/6/09 09:28:10 POSITION, WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF
8/6/09 09:28:13 PLACES TO CUT BEFORE THE PUBLIC
8/6/09 09:28:14 WILL REALLY, REALLY START TO
8/6/09 09:28:16 NOTICE A DECLINE IN THE
8/6/09 09:28:19 SERVICES THAT THEY'VE RECEIVED.
8/6/09 09:28:22 UP TO THIS POINT,
8/6/09 09:28:26 WITH THE
8/6/09 09:28:28 10.5% DECREASE IN OUR NUMBER OF
8/6/09 09:28:31 PERSONNEL, WE HAVE NOT
8/6/09 09:28:32 EFFECTED
8/6/09 09:28:32 UNIFORMED OFFICERS,
8/6/09 09:28:33 FIREFIGHTERS.
8/6/09 09:28:35 IN FACT, WE ARE INCREASING THE
8/6/09 09:28:36 NUMBER OF FIREFIGHTERS.
8/6/09 09:28:39 BUT IF YOU START DOWN THE
8/6/09 09:28:40 ROAD
8/6/09 09:28:42 OF MORE CUTS, WHETHER THEY BE
8/6/09 09:28:45 VACANT POSITION OR FILLED
8/6/09 09:28:47 POSITION, I CAN ASSURE YOU THE
8/6/09 09:28:49 PUBLIC WILL NOTICE THE NEXT
8/6/09 09:28:50 WAVE BECAUSE WE HAVE ALREADY
8/6/09 09:28:52 CUT EVERYWHERE WE CAN THINK OF.
8/6/09 09:28:54 SO, I ALSO THINK IT IS
8/6/09 09:28:57 IMPORTANT TO PUT IT
8/6/09 09:28:57 INTO SOME
8/6/09 09:28:57 CONTEXT.
8/6/09 09:29:00 WE HAVE HAD NO
8/6/09 09:29:02 PAY REDUCTIONS,
8/6/09 09:29:05 NO FURLOUGHS, WE HAVE HAD
8/6/09 09:29:06 NO
8/6/09 09:29:08 REDUCTION IN BENEFITS, SAME
8/6/09 09:29:10 PENSION, MEDICAL, SICK,
8/6/09 09:29:12 VACATION, EVERYONE GETS
8/6/09 09:29:15 LONGEVITY
8/6/09 09:29:16 PAY EXCEPT
8/6/09 09:29:16 MANAGERABOVE.
8/6/09 09:29:18 SAME GENEROUS PACKAGE DESPITE
8/6/09 09:29:19 THESE ECONOMIC CONDITIONS.
8/6/09 09:29:21 WE HAVE NOT ASKED EMPLOYEES TO
8/6/09 09:29:24 GIVE UP ANY OF THEIR
8/6/09 09:29:25 BENEFITS.
8/6/09 09:29:26 NO CUT IN PAY.
8/6/09 09:29:28 THE ONLY THING WE ASK IS THAT
8/6/09 09:29:30 THEY GO WITHOUT A PAY RAISE.
8/6/09 09:29:32 IN THESE ECONOMIC TIMES, I
8/6/09 09:29:35 THINK THAT IS
8/6/09 09:29:37 REASONABLE, AND
8/6/09 09:29:38 RESPONSIBLE.
8/6/09 09:29:41 LET ME JUST SAY, THAT I AM VERY
8/6/09 09:29:43 OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THE LONG-TERM
8/6/09 09:29:46 FUTURE OF OUR CITY
8/6/09 09:29:47 PARTICULARLY
8/6/09 09:29:49 IF THE VOTERS VOTE TO INVEST IN
8/6/09 09:29:51 LIGHT RAIL BECAUSE I DO BELIEVE
8/6/09 09:29:53 THAT LIGHT RAIL WILL BE A
8/6/09 09:29:56 CATALYST FOR LONG TERM ECONOMIC
8/6/09 09:29:56 BENEFITS.
8/6/09 09:29:58 IT WILL PRODUCE JOBS ON THE
8/6/09 09:30:00 SCALE WE CAN'T IMAGINE IF WE DO
8/6/09 09:30:02 NOT MAKE THIS INVESTMENT.
8/6/09 09:30:05 AND YOU KNOW, I AM
8/6/09 09:30:05 VERY
8/6/09 09:30:07 PASSIONATE ON THIS ISSUE.
8/6/09 09:30:09 IF THE COUNTY COMMISSION PUTS
8/6/09 09:30:10 IT ON THE BALLOT I WILL
8/6/09 09:30:11 CAMPAIGN FOR IT AND DO
8/6/09 09:30:13 EVERYTHING I CAN TO HELP IT TO
8/6/09 09:30:14 PASS BECAUSE I TRULY BELIEVE IT
8/6/09 09:30:17 IS FOR THE BENEFIT NOT ONLY OF
8/6/09 09:30:20 OUR CITY, COUNTY BUT THE ENTIRE
8/6/09 09:30:20 REGION.
8/6/09 09:30:23 WE DO PLAY A PIVOTAL ROLE IN
8/6/09 09:30:24 THE ECONOMIC HEALTH OF THE
8/6/09 09:30:24 REGION.
8/6/09 09:30:27 YES, I AM OPTIMISTIC ABOUT
8/6/09 09:30:27 THE
8/6/09 09:30:30 LONG-TERM, BUT I
8/6/09 09:30:33 AM VERY
8/6/09 09:30:35 REALISTIC ABOUT TODAY AND NEXT
8/6/09 09:30:35 YEAR'S BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:30:37 WHEN YOU RUN A BIG ENTITY LIKE
8/6/09 09:30:40 THE CITY OF TAMPA, YOU HAVE
8/6/09 09:30:41 TO
8/6/09 09:30:43 BE A REALISTIC PERSON.
8/6/09 09:30:44 BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH
8/6/09 09:30:45 THE HERE AND NOW.
8/6/09 09:30:48 YOU HAVE TO DEAL
8/6/09 09:30:50 WITH REAL
8/6/09 09:30:51 NUMBERS, REAL SITUATIONS.
8/6/09 09:30:54 IT CAN TEMPER YOUR OPTIMISM A
8/6/09 09:30:55 BIT BECAUSE WE LIVE IN TIMES
8/6/09 09:30:58 WHERE YOU HAVE TO
8/6/09 09:31:00 BE VERY
8/6/09 09:31:00 REALISTIC.
8/6/09 09:31:02 WE CAN'T REALLY SAY TO PEOPLE,
8/6/09 09:31:05 THAT JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING WAS
8/6/09 09:31:06 THE WAY IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN,
8/6/09 09:31:08 THAT IS THE WAY IT IS GOING TO
8/6/09 09:31:09 BE IN THE FUTURE.
8/6/09 09:31:11 IT IS REALLY AN OLD WAY OF
8/6/09 09:31:13 THINKING, BUT WE'VE GOT TO
8/6/09 09:31:14 THINK DIFFERENTLY IF WE ARE
8/6/09 09:31:17 GOING TO BE PROGRESSIVE LEADERS
8/6/09 09:31:18 OF THIS ORGANIZATION.
8/6/09 09:31:21 IN THIS CASE, THE PAST DOES
8/6/09 09:31:22 NOT
8/6/09 09:31:23 PREDICT THE FUTURE.
8/6/09 09:31:25 SOME CASES IT DOES.
8/6/09 09:31:26 BUT NOT ANY MORE.
8/6/09 09:31:29 BECAUSE THERE HAS BEEN A REAL
8/6/09 09:31:30 SHIFT IN LOC-AL GOVERNMENT
8/6/09 09:31:33 FUNDING, AND IT
8/6/09 09:31:34 IS NOT
8/6/09 09:31:34 TEMPORARY.
8/6/09 09:31:35 THE RECESSION MAY BE TEMPORARY,
8/6/09 09:31:38 ALTHOUGH I THINK IT WILL
8/6/09 09:31:38 LAST
8/6/09 09:31:41 CERTAINLY THROUGHOUT
8/6/09 09:31:45 OUR
8/6/09 09:31:48 CONTINUE TENURE BUT THE SHIFT
8/6/09 09:31:50 IN CONTINUED GOVERNMENT FUNDING
8/6/09 09:31:51 IS NOT TEMPORARY.
8/6/09 09:31:52 THE LEGISLATURE HAS MADE
8/6/09 09:31:55 CHANGES AND MORE ARE ON THE WAY
8/6/09 09:31:58 WITH WHAT WILL BE ON THE
8/6/09 09:32:00 BALLOT
8/6/09 09:32:00 WITH CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS
8/6/09 09:32:02 IN 2010 THAT WILL PERMANENTLY
8/6/09 09:32:05 RESTRICT LOCAL GOVERNMENT
8/6/09 09:32:05 REVENUES.
8/6/09 09:32:07 AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT
8/6/09 09:32:10 WE'VE GOT TO BE STRAIGHT WITH
8/6/09 09:32:13 PEOPLE ABOUT,
8/6/09 09:32:16 WE CAN'T CONTINUE
8/6/09 09:32:19 TO ACT AS THOUGH
8/6/09 09:32:21 A 10.5%
8/6/09 09:32:22 REDUCTION IN OUR WORK FORCE
8/6/09 09:32:25 PRODUCE IT IS EXACT SAME AMOUNT
8/6/09 09:32:25 OF PRODUCTIVITY.
8/6/09 09:32:25 IT DOES NOT.
8/6/09 09:32:27 WE CAN'T KEEP GIVING OUR
8/6/09 09:32:29 EMPLOYEES THE EXACT SAME AMOUNT
8/6/09 09:32:32 OF WORK AND NEW IDEAS AND
8/6/09 09:32:32 NEW
8/6/09 09:32:35 PROJECTS AND SO FORTH, AND
8/6/09 09:32:36 EXPECT THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO
8/6/09 09:32:38 GET IT ALL DONE.
8/6/09 09:32:41 WE HAVE TO
8/6/09 09:32:44 RECOGNIZE THAT
8/6/09 09:32:44 A
8/6/09 09:32:45 10.5% REDUCTION IN OUR WORK
8/6/09 09:32:48 FORCE DOES HAVE AN EFFECT ON
8/6/09 09:32:50 OUR PRODUCTIVITY AND SERVICES
8/6/09 09:32:52 WE DELIVER TO THE PUBLIC.
8/6/09 09:32:53 HOWEVER, I TAKE REAL PRIDE IN
8/6/09 09:32:55 THE WAY WE HAVE MADE THE
8/6/09 09:32:58 REDUCTIONS OVER THE
8/6/09 09:32:58 PAST THREE
8/6/09 09:32:59 YEARS.
8/6/09 09:33:01 I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THIS
8/6/09 09:33:04 CITIZENS WE SERVE WILL NOTICE
8/6/09 09:33:06 ANY DRASTIC REDUCTION IN THE
8/6/09 09:33:07 SERVICES THAT THEY RECEIVE AND
8/6/09 09:33:09 THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT
8/6/09 09:33:11 THING BECAUSE THAT IS WHY WE
8/6/09 09:33:12 ARE ALL HERE, TO SERVE THEM.
8/6/09 09:33:15 WE HAVE KEPT OUR RESERVES
8/6/09 09:33:18 HEALTHY, OUR BOND RATING
8/6/09 09:33:21 INTACT, AND OUR PRIORITIES ARE
8/6/09 09:33:21 UNCHANGED.
8/6/09 09:33:24 AND WE KEEP MOVING FORWARD IN
8/6/09 09:33:26 MAKING PROGRESS EVEN IN THESE
8/6/09 09:33:27 TOUGH TIMES.
8/6/09 09:33:29 AND SO COUNCILMEMBERS, I AM
8/6/09 09:33:32 VERY PROUD TO PRESENT THIS
8/6/09 09:33:35 BUDGET TO YOU TODAY.
8/6/09 09:33:37 THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
8/6/09 09:33:38 >> ANY QUESTIONS.
8/6/09 09:33:41 >> THANK YOU MAYOR.
8/6/09 09:33:42 FOR YOUR TIME THIS MORNING.
8/6/09 09:33:45 AND
8/6/09 09:33:47 FOR THE BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:33:48 COUNCILMAN SAUL-SENA.
8/6/09 09:33:48 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 09:33:50 YOU TOOK TIME YESTERDAY TO GO
8/6/09 09:33:53 OVER THIS WITH EACH OF US AND
8/6/09 09:33:55 WE HAD A MORE IN DEPTH
8/6/09 09:33:55 CONVERSATION.
8/6/09 09:33:57 IT IS NOT AN EASY BUDGET BUT IN
8/6/09 09:33:59 YOUR WORDS IT IS REASONABLE AND
8/6/09 09:34:00 RESPONSIBLE AND WE NOW HAVE A
8/6/09 09:34:02 CHANCE TO LOOK AT IT IN GREATER
8/6/09 09:34:05 DETAIL BUT THANK YOU FOR THE
8/6/09 09:34:06 PARTICULARLY THE STEWARD SHIP
8/6/09 09:34:08 OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS.
8/6/09 09:34:10 THE FACT THAT OUR SITUATION,
8/6/09 09:34:13 WHILE DIFFICULT ISN'T DIRE, IS
8/6/09 09:34:14 BECAUSE OF THE CUTTING OF
8/6/09 09:34:16 POSITION THAT IS YOU BEGAN
8/6/09 09:34:19 THREE YEARS AGO WHICH MEANS WE
8/6/09 09:34:22 ARE NOT HAVING TO DO SUCH DRAY
8/6/09 09:34:24 COGNAC CUTS NOW.
8/6/09 09:34:26 I APPRECIATE THAT FORESIGHT AND
8/6/09 09:34:29 WANT TO RECOGNIZE BONNY WISE.
8/6/09 09:34:32 I KNOW THIS HAS BEEN
8/6/09 09:34:32 A
8/6/09 09:34:33 TREMENDOUS CHALLENGE.
8/6/09 09:34:33 THANK YOU.
8/6/09 09:34:35 >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
8/6/09 09:34:36 >> COUNCILMAN MIRANDA.
8/6/09 09:34:38 >> THANK YOU MR. CHAIRMAN.
8/6/09 09:34:40 >>> MAYOR I APPRECIATE THE
8/6/09 09:34:41 PRESENTATION YOU MADE, TO THE
8/6/09 09:34:44 POINT, DIRECT AND I
8/6/09 09:34:45 APPRECIATE
8/6/09 09:34:45 THAT ROUTE.
8/6/09 09:34:48 WHEN YOU MENTION ABOUT GOING
8/6/09 09:34:50 BACK SOME TIME IS NOT THE BEST
8/6/09 09:34:51 THING BUT YOU ALSO MENTION SOME
8/6/09 09:34:53 TIMES IT IS WORTHY BECAUSE
8/6/09 09:34:55 YOU'VE GOT TO LOOK BACK TO GO
8/6/09 09:34:56 WHERE YOU ARE GOING FORWARD.
8/6/09 09:34:59 I BRING THAT UP BECAUSE I THINK
8/6/09 09:35:02 I'VE SPOKEN TO YOU AND
8/6/09 09:35:02 SOME
8/6/09 09:35:04 MEMBERS OF YOUR STAFF AND --
8/6/09 09:35:06 ABOUT THE MEDICAL SOCIETIES OF
8/6/09 09:35:08 THE OLD AND OUR BIGGEST CONCERN
8/6/09 09:35:10 --ONE OF THE BIG EXPENDITURES
8/6/09 09:35:13 IS REGARDING HEALTH INSURANCE.
8/6/09 09:35:15 AND I THINK IT IS TIME AND I AM
8/6/09 09:35:18 JUST AS A SUGGESTION, THAT YOU
8/6/09 09:35:19 AND YOUR STAFF, GET TOGETHER
8/6/09 09:35:21 AND SEE IF IT IS POSSIBLE AND I
8/6/09 09:35:23 THINK THAT HAS BEEN STUDYING
8/6/09 09:35:26 --BEING STUDIED NOW, WHERE YOU
8/6/09 09:35:28 HAVE YOUR OWN CITY CLINIC FOR
8/6/09 09:35:31 YOUR OWN CITY EMPLOYEES TO
8/6/09 09:35:32 DO
8/6/09 09:35:34 PRIMARY CARE, I DON'T MEAN
8/6/09 09:35:36 OPERATIONYOU KNOW, THAT KIND OF
8/6/09 09:35:37 STUFF BUT THERE IS A LOT OF
8/6/09 09:35:40 DOCTORS IN THE CITY I KNOW AND
8/6/09 09:35:42 I HAVE SPOKEN TO A FEW, THAT
8/6/09 09:35:43 ARE RETIRED AND THEY ARE
8/6/09 09:35:45 SPECIALISTS IN THEIR AREA, AND
8/6/09 09:35:47 GUESS WHAT I FOUND OUT?
8/6/09 09:35:48 THEY ARE BORED.
8/6/09 09:35:51 THEY ARE BORED OF NOT
8/6/09 09:35:52 PRACTICING BUT DON'T PRACTICE
8/6/09 09:35:53 BECAUSE IF THEY DO ONE
8/6/09 09:35:55 OPERATION OR ONE EXAMINATION,
8/6/09 09:35:57 IT COSTS THE SAME INSURANCE FOR
8/6/09 09:35:59 THEM WHETHER THEY DO A THOUSAND
8/6/09 09:36:01 OF THEM SO THEREFORE THEY DON'T
8/6/09 09:36:02 DO ANY.
8/6/09 09:36:04 SO I HAVE SPOKEN SO SOME OF
8/6/09 09:36:06 THEM AND THEY ARE WILLING TO
8/6/09 09:36:10 COME AND MEET AT
8/6/09 09:36:10 THE TABLE, AND
8/6/09 09:36:11 I THINK THAT THE OLD MEDICAL
8/6/09 09:36:12 SOCIETIES WE WERE USED TO
8/6/09 09:36:13 GROWING UP, I CAN'T TALK ABOUT
8/6/09 09:36:16 ALL OF US, BUT I AM SURE
8/6/09 09:36:19 WE
8/6/09 09:36:22 KNOW ABOUT GONZALEZ CLINIC, AND
8/6/09 09:36:25 OTHERS YOU BELONG AND PAID A
8/6/09 09:36:26 MINIMUM AMOUNT AND HAD ALL
8/6/09 09:36:27 SERVICES.
8/6/09 09:36:28 IN GOVERNMENT WE HAVE TO GO
8/6/09 09:36:31 BACK SOME TIMES
8/6/09 09:36:33 TO GO FORWARD
8/6/09 09:36:34 AND REDUCE THIS 30 SOME MILLION
8/6/09 09:36:37 DOLLARS COST WE HAVE ALONG
8/6/09 09:36:38 WITH
8/6/09 09:36:38 EMPLOYEE COST.
8/6/09 09:36:39 I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING YOU
8/6/09 09:36:39 SAID.
8/6/09 09:36:41 I THINK WE ARE HEADING IN THE
8/6/09 09:36:41 RIGHT DIRECTION.
8/6/09 09:36:43 >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
8/6/09 09:36:45 WE WILL FOLLOW UP ON THAT.
8/6/09 09:36:47 >> AGAIN MAYOR, I WANT TO THANK
8/6/09 09:36:50 YOU AGAIN FOR BEING HERE AND
8/6/09 09:36:50 PRESENTING THE BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:36:53 I KNOW CHARTER REQUIRES THAT
8/6/09 09:36:56 BUT IN PARTICULAR THIS WEEK YOU
8/6/09 09:36:57 HAD OPPORTUNITY TO MEET WITH
8/6/09 09:37:00 EACH COUNCIL PERSON AND
8/6/09 09:37:01 SPEND
8/6/09 09:37:01 TIME.
8/6/09 09:37:02 I APPRECIATE THAT SO VERY MUCH.
8/6/09 09:37:05 THAT MEANT A LOT TO EACH OF US.
8/6/09 09:37:08 THE OTHER THING YOU

8/6/09 09:37:11 REMAIN OPTIMISTIC, FOR THE LAST
8/6/09 09:37:13 SEVERAL YEARS GIVEN THE MANY
8/6/09 09:37:14 CHALLENGES YOU AND YOUR
8/6/09 09:37:16 ADMINISTRATION HAVE FACED AND
8/6/09 09:37:17 THIS CITY HAS FACED.
8/6/09 09:37:19 THAT IS ALWAYS THE GOOD SIGN OF
8/6/09 09:37:21 A GOOD LEADER, IN SPITE OF
8/6/09 09:37:24 HURDLES AND IN SPITE OF
8/6/09 09:37:27 CHALLENGINGS, YOU ALWAYS
8/6/09 09:37:27 LOOK
8/6/09 09:37:28 FOR A BRIGHT SIDE.
8/6/09 09:37:31 SO YOU ARE ENCOURAGING US TO
8/6/09 09:37:33 SEE THING THAT IS ARE HAPPENING
8/6/09 09:37:36 IN THIS CITY, MOVING FORWARD,
8/6/09 09:37:37 AND YOU REMAIN OPTIMISTIC.
8/6/09 09:37:40 LASTLY, BEING A LEADER IS
8/6/09 09:37:40 NOT
8/6/09 09:37:40 ALWAYS EASY.
8/6/09 09:37:42 THERE ARE TIMES YOU HAVE TO
8/6/09 09:37:42 MAKE TOUGH CHOICES.
8/6/09 09:37:44 CHOICES SOME TIMES EVERYBODY
8/6/09 09:37:46 DON'T AGREE WITH BUT IT TAKES A
8/6/09 09:37:48 REAL LEADER TO MAKE THOSE
8/6/09 09:37:50 DECISIONS AND THOSE CHOICES AND
8/6/09 09:37:51 MOVE FORWARD.
8/6/09 09:37:52 AND YOU TRY TO BRING PEOPLE
8/6/09 09:37:53 ALONG WITH YOU.

8/6/09 09:39:09 MANY OF THE THINGS
8/6/09 09:39:10 THE MAYOR
8/6/09 09:39:10 DISCUSSED.
8/6/09 09:39:13 EVERY YEAR WE GO THROUGH THE
8/6/09 09:39:14 BUDGET PROCESS AND EACH YEAR
8/6/09 09:39:17 HAS ITS OWN SET OF BUDGET
8/6/09 09:39:17 CHALLENGES.
8/6/09 09:39:20 WE ARE OPERATING IN A
8/6/09 09:39:20 DIFFICULT
8/6/09 09:39:21 ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT.
8/6/09 09:39:24 TWO YEARS AGO WE
8/6/09 09:39:25 HAD
8/6/09 09:39:25 LEGISLATIVE ACTION.
8/6/09 09:39:28 WE HAD TO
8/6/09 09:39:30 REDUCE MILAGE RATE
8/6/09 09:39:30 10.5%.

8/6/09 09:42:54 WE CONTINUE TO BUILD
8/6/09 09:42:54 INFRASTRUCTURE.
8/6/09 09:42:56 THE MAYOR MENTIONED SEVERAL OF
8/6/09 09:42:59 OUR CAPITAL PROJECTS WE ARE
8/6/09 09:43:02 CONTINUING TO EMBARK UPON
8/6/09 09:43:03 AND
8/6/09 09:43:04 PRESERVING RESERVES.
8/6/09 09:43:07 THE MAYOR MENTIONED
8/6/09 09:43:07 MOODY'S
8/6/09 09:43:08 REPORT.
8/6/09 09:43:10 WE BUILT RESERVEDESPITE THE
8/6/09 09:43:12 FACT WE ARE UTILIZING THEM,
8/6/09 09:43:15 THEY STILL REMAIN FINANCIALLY
8/6/09 09:43:15 HEALTHY.
8/6/09 09:43:18 AND WE HAVE INCREASED STRENGTH
8/6/09 09:43:19 OF GOVERNMENT WITH MINIMAL
8/6/09 09:43:22 IMPACT TO THE PUBLIC AS
8/6/09 09:43:22 POSSIBLE.
8/6/09 09:43:24 AS I MENTIONED, VARIOUS
8/6/09 09:43:26 LEGISLATIVE IMPACTS HAVE
8/6/09 09:43:28 OCCURRED OVER THE PAST FEW
8/6/09 09:43:29 YEARS.
8/6/09 09:43:30 ROLL BACK, AMENDMENT ONE.
8/6/09 09:43:32 NOVEMBER 2010 THERE WILL BE A
8/6/09 09:43:32 REFERENDUM.
8/6/09 09:43:35 IF THAT PASSES THAT
8/6/09 09:43:36 WILL BE
8/6/09 09:43:36 EFFECTIVE JANUARY 2011.
8/6/09 09:43:39 WE HAD A WHOLE
8/6/09 09:43:39 DISCUSSION
8/6/09 09:43:41 PREVIOUSLY ON LEGISLATIVE
8/6/09 09:43:41 ACTION.
8/6/09 09:43:43 IT WILL CHANGE THE NON-
8/6/09 09:43:46 HOMESTEADED CAP FOR FIRST TIME
8/6/09 09:43:49 HOME BUYERS AND ALSO THE MOST
8/6/09 09:43:51 MATERIAL THING IS CHANGE THE
8/6/09 09:43:54 WAY COMMERCIAL PROPERTY CAN
8/6/09 09:43:54 INCREASE OVERTIME.
8/6/09 09:43:57 CURRENT LAW IS THAT IT CAN
8/6/09 09:43:57 INCREASE 10 PERCENT.
8/6/09 09:44:00 IF THIS PASSES
8/6/09 09:44:06 IT WILL
8/6/09 09:44:09 LIMIT IT
8/6/09 09:44:12 TO FIVE%.
8/6/09 09:44:15 10,000,002
8/6/09 09:44:17 YEARS AGO,
8/6/09 09:44:20 22,000,051,000,000.
8/6/09 09:44:23 22,000,051
8/6/09 09:44:28 22,000,005,000,000.
8/6/09 09:44:31 THAT IN AND OF ITSELF WILL
8/6/09 09:44:32 SAVE
8/6/09 09:44:33 $1.5 MILLION ANNUALLY.
8/6/09 09:44:36 WE HAVE RESTRICTED CAPITAL
8/6/09 09:44:38 IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS,
8/6/09 09:44:40 ELIMINATED POSITION OF 145, 49
8/6/09 09:44:40 WERE LAID OFF.
8/6/09 09:44:42 WE HAVE REDUCED OVERTIME,
8/6/09 09:44:45 LOOKED AT DIFFERENT WAYS
8/6/09 09:44:45 OF
8/6/09 09:44:48 REPLACING OUR VEHICLES, OUR
8/6/09 09:44:51 EQUIPMENT, AND WE HAVE
8/6/09 09:44:53 EQUALIZED FUND BALANCES, 31
8/6/09 09:44:54 MILLION THIS YEAR.
8/6/09 09:44:57 WE HAVE NO PAY INCREASES FOR
8/6/09 09:44:59 ANY EMPLOYEE IN THIS BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:45:00 >>>I WILL GO THROUGH OUR
8/6/09 09:45:01 REVENUES FOR YOU.
8/6/09 09:45:04 GIVE
8/6/09 09:45:07 YOU
8/6/09 09:45:08 SOME HISTORY.
8/6/09 09:45:08 SORRY.
8/6/09 09:45:11 THIS IS A PIE CHART OF
8/6/09 09:45:13 OUR TAX
8/6/09 09:45:14 OPERATING REVENUES, $425
8/6/09 09:45:14 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:45:16 YOU CAN SEE THEY ARE PROPERTY
8/6/09 09:45:19 TAXES OUR SINGLE
8/6/09 09:45:21 LARGEST
8/6/09 09:45:24 REVENUE IS 33% OF OUR
8/6/09 09:45:25 TAX
8/6/09 09:45:26 OPERATING BUDGET, $133 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:45:27 AND WHAT I DID IS I WANTED YOU
8/6/09 09:45:29 TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE FROM LAST
8/6/09 09:45:31 YEAR TO THIS YEAR.
8/6/09 09:45:33 YOU MAY SAY WITH SO MUCH TO
8/6/09 09:45:35 CUT, HOW IS IT OUR TAX
8/6/09 09:45:37 OPERATING FUND IS STILL THE
8/6/09 09:45:37 SAME?
8/6/09 09:45:40 IT REALLY HAS COME
8/6/09 09:45:41 FROM VARIOUS
8/6/09 09:45:41 SOURCES.
8/6/09 09:45:44 SO OUR PROPERTY TAXES WE HAVE
8/6/09 09:45:47 GOING DOWN
8/6/09 09:45:49 13%.
8/6/09 09:45:52 WE HAVE SALES TAX REVENUES
8/6/09 09:45:54 GOING DOWN 18%.
8/6/09 09:45:57 WHAT WE HAVE HAD THE DO
8/6/09 09:45:57 TO
8/6/09 09:45:59 SATISFY EXPENDITURES, PULL MORE
8/6/09 09:46:00 FROM TRANSFERFUND BALANCE.
8/6/09 09:46:01 I WANTED YOU TO SEE WHERE WE
8/6/09 09:46:04 HAVE COME UP WITH OUR $425
8/6/09 09:46:06 MILLION, WHAT WE HAVE HAD TO DO
8/6/09 09:46:09 TO BALANCE THAT BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:46:11 THIS IS WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO
8/6/09 09:46:13 PROPERTY VALUATIONS IN THE
8/6/09 09:46:13 CITY.
8/6/09 09:46:16 LAST YEAR, THE
8/6/09 09:46:16 VALUES DECLINED
8/6/09 09:46:19 MODERATELY, ABOUT A HALF
8/6/09 09:46:19 BILLION DOLLARS.
8/6/09 09:46:21 THAT WAS STRICTLY DUE TO
8/6/09 09:46:22 AMENDMENT ONE BECAUSE WHAT
8/6/09 09:46:25 AMENDMENT ONE, WHEN WE
8/6/09 09:46:27 INCREASED THE HOMESTEAD
8/6/09 09:46:29 EXEMPTION FROM 25,000 TO 50,000
8/6/09 09:46:32 IT DECREASED AMOUNT OF PROPERTY
8/6/09 09:46:34 ON THE PROPERTY TAX VALUE.
8/6/09 09:46:35 BUT FOR THAT, VALUES WOULD HAVE
8/6/09 09:46:38 INCREASED IN THE
8/6/09 09:46:39 CITY OF TAMPA.
8/6/09 09:46:41 THIS IS A YEAR WE ARE REALLY
8/6/09 09:46:42 SEEING TRUE VALUE DECLINES.
8/6/09 09:46:45 NOT BECAUSE OF LEGISLATIVE
8/6/09 09:46:46 ACTIONS, BUT REALLY BECAUSE
8/6/09 09:46:49 VALUES OF THE PROPERTY AND
8/6/09 09:46:51 CITY
8/6/09 09:46:54 HAVE DECLINED
8/6/09 09:46:55 ALMOST 13%.
8/6/09 09:46:56 NET NEW CONSTRUCTION.
8/6/09 09:46:58 YOU CAN SEE THAT BIG DROP FROM
8/6/09 09:46:59 LAST YEAR.
8/6/09 09:47:01 LAST YEAR OVER A BILLION
8/6/09 09:47:01 DOLLARS.
8/6/09 09:47:04 THIS YEAR A HALF MILLION
8/6/09 09:47:05 --
8/6/09 09:47:06 SORRY $500 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:47:09 A 53% DECLINE
8/6/09 09:47:10 IN NEW
8/6/09 09:47:10 CONSTRUCTION.
8/6/09 09:47:12 THESE ARE OUR PROPERTY TAXES.
8/6/09 09:47:15 YOU CAN SEE FROM 06 TO 07 THE
8/6/09 09:47:16 PROPERTY TAXES OF COURSE WENT
8/6/09 09:47:18 UP AND THAT IS BECAUSE VALUES
8/6/09 09:47:20 WERE GOING UP AT THAT TIME.
8/6/09 09:47:23 IN 08 WE HAD THE MILAGE RATE
8/6/09 09:47:25 REDUCTION, 09 WE HAD THE VALUE
8/6/09 09:47:28 DECLINE AND NOW OF
8/6/09 09:47:30 COURSE THE
8/6/09 09:47:31 BIGGEST ADJUSTMENT, $21 MILLION
8/6/09 09:47:33 INTO FISCAL YEAR 10.
8/6/09 09:47:35 >>> WHAT WE DO IS WE TAKE THAT
8/6/09 09:47:37 MONEY AND PART OF IT WE HAVE TO
8/6/09 09:47:38 SEND TO THE CRAs.
8/6/09 09:47:41 THEY ARE FUNDED WITH PROPERTY
8/6/09 09:47:43 TAX DOLLARS, SEPARATELY YOU
8/6/09 09:47:46 WILL HAVE A WHOLE BUDGET
8/6/09 09:47:46 PRESENTATION ON THAT.
8/6/09 09:47:48 I WILL TALK ABOUT IT GENERALLY.
8/6/09 09:47:51 BUT OF THE CRAs
8/6/09 09:47:53 THEIR BUDGET IS
8/6/09 09:47:54 $26 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:47:57 12.5 MILLION OF THAT COMES
8/6/09 09:47:57 FROM
8/6/09 09:47:59 CITY OF TAMPA.
8/6/09 09:48:01 OF THE 136, 7 MILLION THAT WE
8/6/09 09:48:03 COLLECT WE HAVE TO SEND 12 AND
8/6/09 09:48:06 A HALF MILLION TO THE CRAs.
8/6/09 09:48:08 THAT IS AN ESTIMATE BASED ON
8/6/09 09:48:09 VALUES AT THIS TIME.
8/6/09 09:48:12 YOU CAN SEE
8/6/09 09:48:15 THAT, ABOUT 48% OF
8/6/09 09:48:18 WHAT MAKES UP CRA BUDGET IS
8/6/09 09:48:19 FROM CITY OF TAMPA.
8/6/09 09:48:22 OUR MILAGE RATE WILL
8/6/09 09:48:27 REMINE AT
8/6/09 09:48:27 5.7326 MILs.
8/6/09 09:48:29 WHAT WE HAVE TO CALCULATE EACH
8/6/09 09:48:32 YEAR FOR TAX PURPOSES IS ROLL
8/6/09 09:48:32 BACK RATE.
8/6/09 09:48:35 IN A NORMAL YEAR, A ROLL BACK
8/6/09 09:48:36 RATE WHEN VALUES ARE
8/6/09 09:48:37 INCREASING,
8/6/09 09:48:39 --WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE TO SET
8/6/09 09:48:41 YOUR MILAGE AT IF YOU COLLECTED
8/6/09 09:48:44 THE SAME AMOUNT OF PROPERTY
8/6/09 09:48:46 TAXES AS PRIOR YEAR.
8/6/09 09:48:48 IN THIS CASE, OUR ROLL BACK
8/6/09 09:48:50 RATE IN THIS CASE A ROLL
8/6/09 09:48:53 FORWARD RATE WOULD BRING US
8/6/09 09:48:54 TO
8/6/09 09:48:54 6.56 MILs.
8/6/09 09:48:57 YOU CAN SEE THE BIG DIFFERENCE
8/6/09 09:48:58 WHERE WE ARE MAINTAINING OUR
8/6/09 09:49:00 RATE NOT PROPOSING TO GO TO THE
8/6/09 09:49:02 ROLL UP RATE.
8/6/09 09:49:04 IT WOULD BE A MATERIAL CHANGE.
8/6/09 09:49:06 >>> WE HAVE AN EXAMPLE HERE OF
8/6/09 09:49:08 A HOME CITY OF TAMPA.
8/6/09 09:49:11 THIS HOME IS
8/6/09 09:49:12 ASSESSED AT
8/6/09 09:49:14 $189,000, THEY WOULD HAVE, IF
8/6/09 09:49:17 THIS WAS A
8/6/09 09:49:19 HOMESTEADER
8/6/09 09:49:22 PROPERTY, $50,000 HOMESTEADER
8/6/09 09:49:25 PERSONS, TAX WOULD BE $139,000
8/6/09 09:49:26 COUNTY WIDE MILAGE WOULD BE 21
8/6/09 09:49:29 AND A
8/6/09 09:49:30 HALF MILLS.
8/6/09 09:49:32 COUNTY, SCHOOL DISTRICT, SWIFT,
8/6/09 09:49:33 MUD, HART, EVERYTHING.
8/6/09 09:49:34 THEY WOULD PAY $3,000.
8/6/09 09:49:36 THAT WOULD BE THEIR TOTAL BILL.
8/6/09 09:49:39 WHAT PEOPLE DON'T
8/6/09 09:49:41 REALIZE, IS
8/6/09 09:49:43 THAT ONLY ABOUT 27% OF THAT
8/6/09 09:49:45 COMES TO CITY OF TAMPA.
8/6/09 09:49:47 THEY KNOW THEY ARE PAYING TOTAL
8/6/09 09:49:50 $3,000 BUT IT GETS
8/6/09 09:49:52 DISTRIBUTED
8/6/09 09:49:54 TO MANY ENTITIES OF SOMEONE'S
8/6/09 09:49:57 TAX BILL
8/6/09 09:49:59 WE COLLECT 26.5%.
8/6/09 09:50:01 SALES TAX, YOU HAVE HEARD ME
8/6/09 09:50:04 TALK THROUGHOUT THE
8/6/09 09:50:04 YEAR ABOUT
8/6/09 09:50:05 THAT.
8/6/09 09:50:08 DECLINING OVERTIME,
8/6/09 09:50:08 WE DID
8/6/09 09:50:10 BUDGET 28.5 MILLION FOR SALES
8/6/09 09:50:13 TAX 09 BUT WE ARE PROJECTING 09
8/6/09 09:50:16 REVENUES TO COME IN
8/6/09 09:50:18 ONLY AT
8/6/09 09:50:18 $24.2 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:50:21 CONSEQUENTLY WE HAVE
8/6/09 09:50:21 BUDGETED
8/6/09 09:50:22 23.5.
8/6/09 09:50:24 IN THIS YEAR WE LOST $4.3
8/6/09 09:50:27 MILLION FROM WHAT WE HAD
8/6/09 09:50:27 BUDGETED.
8/6/09 09:50:28 YOU ALL KNOW.
8/6/09 09:50:30 YOU FOLLOW THIS, THE STATE
8/6/09 09:50:33 REVISED THEIR ESTIMATES
8/6/09 09:50:34 ON AN
8/6/09 09:50:35 ONGOING BASIS.
8/6/09 09:50:36 FRANKLY A CHALLENGE TRYING TO
8/6/09 09:50:38 KEEP UP WITH THEIR ESTIMATES.
8/6/09 09:50:40 THESE ARE FRANCHISE FEES,
8/6/09 09:50:42 UTILITY TAX, COMMUNICATION
8/6/09 09:50:42 SERVICES TAX.
8/6/09 09:50:45 IN TOTAL THEY HAVE REMAINED
8/6/09 09:50:45 RELATIVELY STABLE.
8/6/09 09:50:47 WE DID HAVE A ONE TIME
8/6/09 09:50:50 ADJUSTMENT IN
8/6/09 09:50:51 THE
8/6/09 09:50:51 COMMUNICATIONS SERVICES TAX,
8/6/09 09:50:54 AUDITED FROM THE STATE N. OUR
8/6/09 09:50:56 FAVOUR OF $1.7 MILLION THIS
8/6/09 09:50:56 YEAR.
8/6/09 09:50:58 WE ARE REAL PLEASED WITH THAT.
8/6/09 09:51:00 IN TOTAL JUST GENERALLY STABLE
8/6/09 09:51:03 AS YOU SAW ON THE PRIOR
8/6/09 09:51:03 CHART.
8/6/09 09:51:06 HOW TO EXTEND OUR MONEYS.
8/6/09 09:51:09 ALMOST 50% TO
8/6/09 09:51:10 PUBLIC SAFETY.
8/6/09 09:51:12 TAMPA POLICE, FIRE RESCUE, CODE
8/6/09 09:51:14 ENFORCEMENT, FOR THIS PURPOSE
8/6/09 09:51:16 WE DO USE THE STATE CHART OF
8/6/09 09:51:18 ACCOUNTS HOW WE BREAK THAT
8/6/09 09:51:18 DOWN, OUR DISTRIBUTION.
8/6/09 09:51:20 SO YOU CAN SEE THERE, ALMOST
8/6/09 09:51:23 HALF OF OUR EXPENDITURES IN THE
8/6/09 09:51:26 TAX OPERATING FUND ARE
8/6/09 09:51:26 FOR
8/6/09 09:51:27 PUBLIC SAFETY.
8/6/09 09:51:28 VARIOUS DEPARTMENT BUDGETOF
8/6/09 09:51:30 COURSE YOU WILL HAVE THAT
8/6/09 09:51:32 DETAIL IN YOUR BUDGET BOOK,
8/6/09 09:51:34 SOME HAVE GONE UP, SOME DOWN.
8/6/09 09:51:37 I WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT A FEW IF
8/6/09 09:51:40 I COULD,
8/6/09 09:51:41 HUMAN RESOURCES, TEX
8/6/09 09:51:43 KNOWLEDGE, INNOVATION, THEIR
8/6/09 09:51:46 BUDGET HAVE COME UP BECAUSE WE
8/6/09 09:51:48 HAVE CONSOLIDATED FROM VARIOUS
8/6/09 09:51:48 OTHER DEPARTMENTS.
8/6/09 09:51:50 THAT IS AN ONGOING PROCESS TOO.
8/6/09 09:51:52 WE WILL CONSOLIDATE MORE IN THE
8/6/09 09:51:54 BUDGET IN FUTURE YEARS TOO.
8/6/09 09:51:57 TAMPA FIRE RESCUE THE MAYOR
8/6/09 09:51:58 TALKED ABOUT THE NEW FIRE
8/6/09 09:52:01 STATION, AND THE NEW
8/6/09 09:52:02 FIREFIGHTERS, 36 NEW
8/6/09 09:52:05 FIREFIGHTERS FROM OUR SAFER
8/6/09 09:52:05 GRANT.
8/6/09 09:52:07 PUBLIC WORKS YOU WILL NOTICE
8/6/09 09:52:09 THEIR BUDGET DECLINES BECAUSE
8/6/09 09:52:10 WE MOVED CONTRACT
8/6/09 09:52:12 ADMINISTRATION INTO A SEPARATE
8/6/09 09:52:12 AREA.
8/6/09 09:52:15 I WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT THAT FOR
8/6/09 09:52:15 YOU.
8/6/09 09:52:16 GROSS MANAGEMENT AREA, THEY HAD
8/6/09 09:52:19 A REDUCTION IN
8/6/09 09:52:22 THEIR STAFFING
8/6/09 09:52:25 LEVELS.
8/6/09 09:52:28 I ALWAYS
8/6/09 09:52:31 FIND
8/6/09 09:52:33 IT INTERESTING IN
8/6/09 09:52:36 THIS CASE,
8/6/09 09:52:39 PROPERTY
8/6/09 09:52:41 TAX, $136
8/6/09 09:52:41 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:52:43 POLICE BUDGET, FACILITIES,
8/6/09 09:52:44 OTHER CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT
8/6/09 09:52:46 PROJECTS, PROPERTY TAX IS
8/6/09 09:52:49 REALLY JUST COVERING POLICE
8/6/09 09:52:49 BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:52:50 WHEN WE ADD THE FIRE BUDGET,
8/6/09 09:52:53 THERE IS A DIFFERENCE
8/6/09 09:52:54 BETWEEN
8/6/09 09:52:55 THE TWO OVER $63 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:52:57 OUR PROPERTY TAXES ALONE DON'T
8/6/09 09:52:59 EVEN COVER THE MOST ESSENTIAL
8/6/09 09:53:01 SERVICES IN OUR COMMUNITY.
8/6/09 09:53:02 LAST YEAR THE DIFFERENCE WHEN I
8/6/09 09:53:04 HAD THIS CHART UP AND COMPARING
8/6/09 09:53:07 THEM, LAST YEAR
8/6/09 09:53:07 THE DIFFERENCE
8/6/09 09:53:10 WAS $43 MILLION ; THIS
8/6/09 09:53:13 YEAR THE
8/6/09 09:53:14 DIFFERENCE IS 63 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:53:16 >>> THE MAJOR TALKED A LOT
8/6/09 09:53:18 ABOUT PERSONNEL --MAYOR
8/6/09 09:53:20 TALKED A LOT ABOUT PERSONNEL.
8/6/09 09:53:23 I HAVE THIS
8/6/09 09:53:25 IN FTEs.
8/6/09 09:53:28 THEY ARE GRADUALLY DECLINING.
8/6/09 09:53:29 THE LARGEST DEPARTMENT IN THE
8/6/09 09:53:32 GENERAL FUND
8/6/09 09:53:33 IS POLICE
8/6/09 09:53:36 DEPARTMENT, 1250 FULL TIME
8/6/09 09:53:36 POSITION.
8/6/09 09:53:38 191 ARE SWORN OFFICERS.
8/6/09 09:53:42 FIRE IS
8/6/09 09:53:45 NEXT LARGEST,
8/6/09 09:53:46 621
8/6/09 09:53:49 SWORN, 55 CIVILIANS, IN
8/6/09 09:53:51 THE
8/6/09 09:53:54 OTHER CATEGORY, WASTEWATER
8/6/09 09:53:55 HAS
8/6/09 09:53:55 364 POSITION.
8/6/09 09:53:57 OUR POPULATION IN THE CITY OF
8/6/09 09:53:58 TAMPA HAS BEEN INCREASING.
8/6/09 09:54:01 SO WHILE WE HAVE DECLINED
8/6/09 09:54:02 OVER
8/6/09 09:54:05 10% THE POPULATION IN THE SAME
8/6/09 09:54:06 TIME PERIOD INCREASED FOUR%.
8/6/09 09:54:08 FOR EVERY CITY EMPLOYEE WE
8/6/09 09:54:11 SERVED 75 .1 CITIZENS OF
8/6/09 09:54:12 THE
8/6/09 09:54:15 CITY OF TAMPA,
8/6/09 09:54:18 LAST
8/6/09 09:54:19 YEAR 72.2.
8/6/09 09:54:21 IT IS NOT ONLY ABOUT INCREASED
8/6/09 09:54:23 COSTS, IT IS ABOUT SAVINGS WE
8/6/09 09:54:25 ARE TRYING TO GENERATE.
8/6/09 09:54:26 YOU CAN SEE HERE THIS IS
8/6/09 09:54:29 SOMETHING WE ARE TAKING
8/6/09 09:54:32 SERIOUSLY SINCE 2007 WE
8/6/09 09:54:33 REDUCED
8/6/09 09:54:33 OVERTIME 40%.
8/6/09 09:54:35 HOWEVER, THE MAYOR MENTIONED
8/6/09 09:54:35 PENSIONS.
8/6/09 09:54:38 THIS IS OUR CITY WIDE
8/6/09 09:54:38 PENSION
8/6/09 09:54:38 COST.
8/6/09 09:54:41 YOU CAN SEE FOR 2010 THAT OUR
8/6/09 09:54:44 PENSION COSTS ARE
8/6/09 09:54:46 GOING TO
8/6/09 09:54:46 INCREASE DRAMATICALLY.
8/6/09 09:54:49 THE YELLOW IS GENERAL
8/6/09 09:54:52 EMPLOYEES, AND THE GREEN IS FOR
8/6/09 09:54:53 POLICE AND FIRE.
8/6/09 09:54:56 AND NOT ONLY DOES IT
8/6/09 09:54:57 IMPACT OUR
8/6/09 09:55:00 GENERAL DEPARTMENTS IT IMPACTS
8/6/09 09:55:01 ENTERPRISE DEPARTMENTS TOO MANY
8/6/09 09:55:03 THESE ARE EXPENSES THEY HAVE TO
8/6/09 09:55:04 COVER THAT THEIR RATE STRUCTURE
8/6/09 09:55:05 HAS TO COVER.
8/6/09 09:55:07 AN ADDITIONAL EXPENSE FOR THEM.
8/6/09 09:55:09 >>> THESE ARE OUR VARIOUS
8/6/09 09:55:10 BENEFIT THAT IS WE HAVE.
8/6/09 09:55:13 YOU CAN SEE THERE, ONCE AGAIN,
8/6/09 09:55:16 PENSION AND OUR HEALTH
8/6/09 09:55:18 INSURANCE BEING OUR LARGEST
8/6/09 09:55:21 PORTION OF BENEFITS WE PROVIDE
8/6/09 09:55:24 TO
8/6/09 09:55:26 OUR EMPLOYEES, INCREASING
8/6/09 09:55:26 OVERTIME.
8/6/09 09:55:29 WE HAVE NOT REDUCED OFFICERS
8/6/09 09:55:29 ON
8/6/09 09:55:30 THE STREET LEVEL.
8/6/09 09:55:32 WE HAVE 391 POLICE OFFICERS.
8/6/09 09:55:35 THEY ARE STILL REALLY
8/6/09 09:55:36 AT THE
8/6/09 09:55:39 UPPER TIER OF PER
8/6/09 09:55:41 THOUSAND AND
8/6/09 09:55:42 COMPARABLE JURISDICTIONS.
8/6/09 09:55:45 WE FEEL IT IS VERY IMPORTANT
8/6/09 09:55:46 TO
8/6/09 09:55:46 MAINTAIN VARIOUS
8/6/09 09:55:48 CONTINGENCYRESERVES IN OUR
8/6/09 09:55:49 BUDGET.
8/6/09 09:55:52 FOR EXAMPLE, AS I
8/6/09 09:55:52 MENTIONED
8/6/09 09:55:55 BEFORE, SALES TAX PROJECTION
8/6/09 09:55:56 THIS YEAR, $4.3 MILLION.
8/6/09 09:55:58 WE NEED RESERVES, CONTINGENCIES
8/6/09 09:56:00 FOR THINGS LIKE THAT THAT
8/6/09 09:56:00 OCCUR.
8/6/09 09:56:02 WHEN YOU RECALL WHEN GAS WENT
8/6/09 09:56:05 TO $4 A GALLON THAT COST
8/6/09 09:56:08 US AN
8/6/09 09:56:08 EXTRA MILLION.

8/6/09 09:56:16 THEY TALKED ABOUT OUR FAVORABLE
8/6/09 09:56:16 FINANCIAL POSITION.
8/6/09 09:56:19 THEY DID OF COURSE MENTION THE
8/6/09 09:56:20 WEAKENED ECONOMY AND ECONOMY WE
8/6/09 09:56:22 ARE --THE WHOLE REGION.
8/6/09 09:56:24 THEY DID TALK ABOUT OUR
8/6/09 09:56:26 MANAGEABLE DEBT LOAD AND
8/6/09 09:56:27 ADEQUATE RESERVES.
8/6/09 09:56:29 ADDS YOU KNOW, IN THIS --AS
8/6/09 09:56:32 YOU KNOW, IN THIS MARKET
8/6/09 09:56:32 THERE
8/6/09 09:56:35 IS A CREDIT QUALITY THE
8/6/09 09:56:36 DIFFERENCE IN GETTING A BOND
8/6/09 09:56:39 YIELD DONE OR NOT DONE AND WHY
8/6/09 09:56:40 CREDIT RATINGS ARE SO
8/6/09 09:56:40 IMPORTANT.
8/6/09 09:56:43 I AM GOING TO TALK ABOUT
8/6/09 09:56:47 THE
8/6/09 09:56:50 CIT PROGRAM.

8/6/09 09:57:59 ALSO POLK STREET TO MAKE THAT A

8/6/09 09:58:01 WE HAVE DONE THAT AND POLK IS
8/6/09 09:58:04 THE NEXT
8/6/09 09:58:04 STREET.
8/6/09 09:58:05 OUR VEHICLE PROGRAM, $5.4
8/6/09 09:58:07 MILLION FOR OUR VEHICLE PROGRAM

8/6/09 09:58:15 ON CIT, TWO BOND ISSUES
8/6/09 09:58:15 OUTSTANDING.
8/6/09 09:58:18 THEN AS YOU MIGHT
8/6/09 09:58:19 RECALL, WHEN
8/6/09 09:58:21 WE SILT UP OUR OTHER CIT, WE
8/6/09 09:58:24 HAD BUILT IN A RESERVE.
8/6/09 09:58:27 FOR PRO JOINT ACCOUNTS, THEY

8/6/09 09:58:32 PROJECTS THEY MAY HAVE OVER
8/6/09 09:58:32 RUNS.
8/6/09 09:58:34 FCIT BECAUSE THEY ARE SALES TAX
8/6/09 09:58:36 REVENUES, THEY ARE COMING IN
8/6/09 09:58:38 LOWER THAN BUDGETED THREE YEARS
8/6/09 09:58:38 AGO.
8/6/09 09:58:40 THEREFORE WE HAD IN ORDER TO
8/6/09 09:58:43 MAINTAIN CI
8/6/09 09:58:45 PROGRAM WE HAVE
8/6/09 09:58:47 HAD TO MAINTAIN PULL FROM
8/6/09 09:58:48 RESERVES WEES TAB ESTABLISHED.
8/6/09 09:58:50 THE GOOD THING WE ESTABLISHED
8/6/09 09:58:52 THOSE RESERVES BUT THE BAD
8/6/09 09:58:55 THING IS CIT REVENUES, LIKE
8/6/09 09:58:58 SALES TAX, ARE NOT COMING IN AS
8/6/09 09:58:58 HOPED.

8/6/09 09:59:12 ANOTHER $7 MILLION STILL
8/6/09 09:59:13 TO
8/6/09 09:59:15 SPEND FROM CIT BOND PROCEEDS.

8/6/09 09:59:40 AND UNMARKED CARS IN THE
8/6/09 09:59:42 POLICE

8/6/09 09:59:45 WE HAVE SPENT 2.6 MILLION IN
8/6/09 09:59:48 FISCAL YEAR 09 AND MORE PLANS
8/6/09 09:59:49 FOR FISCAL YEAR 10.

8/6/09 10:00:02 MILLION,
8/6/09 10:00:03 SOME FOR STATION 22 AND SOME
8/6/09 10:00:04 WERE PLANNED FOR 2010 BUT
8/6/09 10:00:06 BECAUSE WE WERE ABLE TO GET
8/6/09 10:00:09 SOME COST SAVINGS WE
8/6/09 10:00:10 ACCELERATED THE PROGRAM.
8/6/09 10:00:13 >>> WE ARE DOING A STUDY OF ALL
8/6/09 10:00:16 OF OUR 3200
8/6/09 10:00:17 VEHICLEPIECES OF

8/6/09 10:00:18 MERCURY IS THE NAME OF THE
8/6/09 10:00:21 COMPANY DOING THAT FOR US,
8/6/09 10:00:23 LOOKING AT BETTER WAYS TO
8/6/09 10:00:26 OPERATE THE ENTIRE FLEET.
8/6/09 10:00:28 SHOULD WE OWN, LEASE, REDUCE
8/6/09 10:00:30 COSTS, HAVE MORE MOTOR POOLS.
8/6/09 10:00:33 BASED ON PRELIMINARY
8/6/09 10:00:34 RECOMMENDATIONS WE ANTICIPATE
8/6/09 10:00:37 $2 MILLION IN SAVINGS OVER
8/6/09 10:00:37 THE
8/6/09 10:00:37 NEXT FIVE YEARS.
8/6/09 10:00:40 >>> I WILL NOW

8/6/09 10:00:47 ABOUT
8/6/09 10:00:50 UTILITY FUNDS.
8/6/09 10:00:53 THAT WILL TAKE EFFECT
8/6/09 10:00:54 ON PRIOR
8/6/09 10:00:56 COUNCIL ACTION BUT WE ARE ALSO
8/6/09 10:00:59 PROPOSING A WASTEWATER RATE

8/6/09 10:01:04 MATTER, THIS WILL COME FOR YOU
8/6/09 10:01:06 IN SEPTEMBER, THAT WILL BRING
8/6/09 10:01:09 THE ENTIRE BILL, FOR
8/6/09 10:01:12 AN
8/6/09 10:01:12 AVERAGE
8/6/09 10:01:15 CUSTOMER, 73.45 TO 81.60.
8/6/09 10:01:18 AN 11% INCREASE IN THEIR
8/6/09 10:01:18 ENTIRE
8/6/09 10:01:18 BILL.
8/6/09 10:01:20 WE WOULD STILL LOOK VERY
8/6/09 10:01:22 FAVORABLY TO OTHER
8/6/09 10:01:23 JURISDICTIONS EVEN WITH THIS
8/6/09 10:01:23 RATE INCREASE.
8/6/09 10:01:25 YOU MAY HAVE JUST READ RECENTLY
8/6/09 10:01:28 PINELLAS IS LOOKING FOR ANOTHER
8/6/09 10:01:28 INCREASE.
8/6/09 10:01:30 WE NOTED THAT IN SEPTEMBER,
8/6/09 10:01:33 THEY WILL HAVE ANOTHER INCREASE
8/6/09 10:01:33 FROM THAT.
8/6/09 10:01:35 THE UTILITY BILL COMPARED
8/6/09 10:01:39 FAVORABLY EVEN WITH
8/6/09 10:01:39 THE RATE
8/6/09 10:01:40 INCREASE.
8/6/09 10:01:41 I WILL TALK NOW ABOUT WATER.
8/6/09 10:01:44 VERY FAMILIAR WITH WATER'S FIVE
8/6/09 10:01:46 YEAR PLAN TO MAKE VARIOUS
8/6/09 10:01:49 IMPROVEMENTS THROUGHOUT
8/6/09 10:01:49 THE
8/6/09 10:01:51 ENTIRE WATER SYSTEM.
8/6/09 10:01:53 THEY HAVE $54 MILLION IN THIS
8/6/09 10:01:54 BUDGET AND THEN EXPECT TO COME
8/6/09 10:01:56 BEFORE YOU IN THE FALL FOR A
8/6/09 10:01:59 BOND ISSUE, SO THAT THEY WILL
8/6/09 10:02:00 HAVE TOTAL PROJECTS OVER $110
8/6/09 10:02:03 MILLION FOR THE WATER PROGRAM.
8/6/09 10:02:06 IT WILL BE COMBINATION OF
8/6/09 10:02:07 ONGOING REVENUES, COMMERCIAL
8/6/09 10:02:09 PAPER, IT MAY JUST BE THE BOND
8/6/09 10:02:09 ISSUE.
8/6/09 10:02:11 WHATEVER THE BEST FINANCING
8/6/09 10:02:14 MECHANISM AT THE
8/6/09 10:02:14 TIME IS.
8/6/09 10:02:17 WATER HAS HAD A $4.3
8/6/09 10:02:17 MILLION
8/6/09 10:02:20 CHANGE IN THEIR BUDGET.
8/6/09 10:02:23 PARTLY DUE TO PERSONNEL,
8/6/09 10:02:26 PERSONNEL IS MOSTLY RELATED TO
8/6/09 10:02:26 PENSION.
8/6/09 10:02:28 THEY HAVE INCREASED IN CHEMICAL
8/6/09 10:02:31 COSTS AND REPAIR AND
8/6/09 10:02:33 MAINTENANCE OF THEIR
8/6/09 10:02:33 FACILITIES.
8/6/09 10:02:36 THIS IS
8/6/09 10:02:39 AT FISH CREEK.
8/6/09 10:02:42 AND CURIOUSTY CREEK.
8/6/09 10:02:43 I THINK.
8/6/09 10:02:46 THE WASTEWATER
8/6/09 10:02:48 BUDGET ACTUALLY
8/6/09 10:02:50 DECLINES $4.9 MILLION THEY HAVE
8/6/09 10:02:53 HAD A LITTLE BIT
8/6/09 10:02:55 OF CHANGE.
8/6/09 10:02:56 THEIR CHEMICALS HAVE DECLINED
8/6/09 10:02:59 BECAUSE
8/6/09 10:03:01 OF SIGNIFICANT,
8/6/09 10:03:02 AGGRESSIVE, COMPETITIVE BIDDING
8/6/09 10:03:03 THEY HAVE DONE IN THE AREA OF
8/6/09 10:03:03 METHANOL.
8/6/09 10:03:06 THAT IS AN AREA THEY HAVE
8/6/09 10:03:07 HAD A
8/6/09 10:03:08 REDUCTION.
8/6/09 10:03:11 THEY HAVE HAD AN INCREASE
8/6/09 10:03:11 IN
8/6/09 10:03:12 PERSONNEL AS WELL.
8/6/09 10:03:14 IF THIS RATE INCREASES
8/6/09 10:03:15 IMPLEMENTED IT WILL ALLOW THEM
8/6/09 10:03:18 TO FURTHER INCREASE CIP
8/6/09 10:03:20 PROJECTS JUST FOR THEIR ONGOING
8/6/09 10:03:21 MAINTENANCE.
8/6/09 10:03:24 NOT BIG CAPITAL PROJECTS
8/6/09 10:03:27 BUT
8/6/09 10:03:29 CIP PROGRAM ONGOING.
8/6/09 10:03:32 AS A LITTLE REMINDER,
8/6/09 10:03:35 WASTEWATER HAS HAD
8/6/09 10:03:37 VARIOUS
8/6/09 10:03:39 REVENUE DECLINES, BRANDON FLOW
8/6/09 10:03:42 DISCONTINUED, PLANT CITY
8/6/09 10:03:44 CLOSING, CAPACITY FREES RELATED
8/6/09 10:03:47 --FEES RELATED
8/6/09 10:03:48 TO GROWTH
8/6/09 10:03:49 DECLINES.
8/6/09 10:03:50 ELECTRICITY INCREASING,
8/6/09 10:03:51 INSURANCE AND PENSION COSTS
8/6/09 10:03:51 INCREASING AS WELL.
8/6/09 10:03:54 THAT IS WHY WE RECOMMENDED
8/6/09 10:03:54 TO
8/6/09 10:03:56 YOU, THE THREE YEAR RATE
8/6/09 10:03:56 INCREASE.
8/6/09 10:03:58 AND AS WE TALKED BEFORE, IT
8/6/09 10:04:00 WOULD PROVIDE SUFFICIENT DEBT
8/6/09 10:04:02 SERVICE COVERAGE, ADEQUATE
8/6/09 10:04:03 RESERVE BALANCES.
8/6/09 10:04:06 CONSISTENT WITH THE WATER RATE
8/6/09 10:04:09 INCREASE AND MAINTAIN
8/6/09 10:04:10 BOND
8/6/09 10:04:13 RATING FOR THE
8/6/09 10:04:15 WATER BOND
8/6/09 10:04:15 ISSUANCE.
8/6/09 10:04:17 FOR BOND PURPOSES, WITHOUT THIS
8/6/09 10:04:20 RATE INCREASE, WATER WOULD
8/6/09 10:04:20 NOT
8/6/09 10:04:23 BE ABLE TO ISSUE DEBT IN A COST
8/6/09 10:04:23 EFFECTIVE MANNER.
8/6/09 10:04:27 >>> THIS IS
8/6/09 10:04:27 PIPE REPLACEMENT AT
8/6/09 10:04:28 SULPHUR SPRING.
8/6/09 10:04:31 THIS IS A SOLID
8/6/09 10:04:33 WASTE BUDGET
8/6/09 10:04:34 DECLINED MODERATELY, $1.4
8/6/09 10:04:34 MILLION.
8/6/09 10:04:36 A FEW MORE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT
8/6/09 10:04:36 PROJECTS.
8/6/09 10:04:38 COST OF FUEL HAS GONE UP A
8/6/09 10:04:38 LITTLE BIT.
8/6/09 10:04:41 I WANT TO TELL YOU, DEBT
8/6/09 10:04:42 SERVICE COVERAGE AND SOLID
8/6/09 10:04:44 WASTE AREA IS SOMETHING I AM
8/6/09 10:04:45 WATCHING VERY CLOSELY.
8/6/09 10:04:47 THEY ARE HAVING TO UTILIZE FUND
8/6/09 10:04:51 BALANCE IN ORDER TO
8/6/09 10:04:52 MEET THEIR
8/6/09 10:04:53 BALANCE.
8/6/09 10:04:54 YOU WILL PROBABLY HEAR MORE
8/6/09 10:04:57 FROM ME HOW I AM
8/6/09 10:04:58 MONITORING
8/6/09 10:04:59 SOLID WASTE AREA.
8/6/09 10:05:00 >> PARKING.
8/6/09 10:05:02 WE HAVE HAD VARIOUS DISCUSSIONS
8/6/09 10:05:04 ABOUT PARKING.
8/6/09 10:05:06 THEIR BUDGET INCREASED $2.3
8/6/09 10:05:06 MILLION.
8/6/09 10:05:07 THE BIGGEST PART OF THAT
8/6/09 10:05:09 INCREASE OF DEBT SERVICE.
8/6/09 10:05:10 THEIR DEBT SERVICE DID INCREASE
8/6/09 10:05:12 ABOUT A MILLION AND A HALF
8/6/09 10:05:13 DOLLARS THIS YEAR IT AND WAS
8/6/09 10:05:15 REALLY THE WAY WE STRUCTURED
8/6/09 10:05:18 WHEN WE PAID OFF SOME OF THAT
8/6/09 10:05:20 TAMPA GENERAL HOSPITAL DEBT, WE
8/6/09 10:05:22 KNEW THAT THIS YEAR AND NEXT
8/6/09 10:05:25 YEAR IS
8/6/09 10:05:28 GOING
8/6/09 10:05:30 TO INCREASE $4
8/6/09 10:05:31 MILLION.
8/6/09 10:05:34 THIS IS THE HORIZON WE
8/6/09 10:05:34 MADE IN
8/6/09 10:05:36 PARKING WHEN WE PAID OFF THE
8/6/09 10:05:38 BONDS, WE KNEW WE HAD A JUMP IN
8/6/09 10:05:38 DEBT SERVICE.
8/6/09 10:05:41 MORE TO COME ON PARKING.
8/6/09 10:05:44 YOU MIGHT RECALL, WHEN WE DID
8/6/09 10:05:45 TAMPA GENERAL HOSPITAL
8/6/09 10:05:48 TRANSACTION, WE SET ASIDE $6
8/6/09 10:05:50 MILLION FOR VARIOUS
8/6/09 10:05:50 IMMOVEMENTS.
8/6/09 10:05:53 5 MILLION FOR DOWNTOWN
8/6/09 10:05:54 IMPROVEMENTS, ANOTHER MILLION
8/6/09 10:05:57 FOR IMPROVEMENTS IN THE PARKING
8/6/09 10:05:57 FACILITIES.
8/6/09 10:05:59 WE HAVE HAD TO USE PART OF THAT
8/6/09 10:06:01 MONEY TO BALANCE THE BUDGET FOR
8/6/09 10:06:01 PARKING THIS YEAR.
8/6/09 10:06:04 TWO AND A HALFLE MILLION
8/6/09 10:06:06 DOLLARS OF IT.
8/6/09 10:06:09 WE ARE SUBSIDIZING IT FROM
8/6/09 10:06:09 THE
8/6/09 10:06:10 GENERAL FUND, $300,000.
8/6/09 10:06:13 WE DID THAT LAST YEAR AS
8/6/09 10:06:13 WELL.
8/6/09 10:06:14 THIS SUBSIDY.
8/6/09 10:06:17 >>> STORM WATER BUDGET
8/6/09 10:06:18 ALMOST
8/6/09 10:06:19 THE SAME.
8/6/09 10:06:22 PERSONNEL HAVE DECREASED,
8/6/09 10:06:23 COSTS
8/6/09 10:06:24 AND PENSION INCREASED.
8/6/09 10:06:25 DEBT SERVICE INCREASED DUE TO
8/6/09 10:06:27 PROJECTS THEY ARE WORKING ON.
8/6/09 10:06:29 >> STORM WATER, OF COURSE WE
8/6/09 10:06:32 ARE VERY PROUD OF THEIR
8/6/09 10:06:32 FIVE
8/6/09 10:06:35 YEAR PLAN, THEIR $44 MILLION IN
8/6/09 10:06:35 VARIOUS CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS.
8/6/09 10:06:37 FUNDED WITH COMMERCIAL PAPER,
8/6/09 10:06:39 AND WILL PROBABLY TAKE OUT THAT
8/6/09 10:06:42 COMMERCIAL PAPER AT
8/6/09 10:06:42 SOME POINT
8/6/09 10:06:43 WITH BONDS.
8/6/09 10:06:46 HERE IS SOME
8/6/09 10:06:48 STORM WATER
8/6/09 10:06:51 IMPROVEMENTS
8/6/09 10:06:54 FOR YOU.

8/6/09 10:07:05 THEM OPERATING, BONDS, REALLY
8/6/09 10:07:06 MATERIALLY DECREASE FROM LAST
8/6/09 10:07:08 YEAR, BUT ONCE WE ISSUED THOSE
8/6/09 10:07:11 BONDS FOR WATER IN THE
8/6/09 10:07:11 FALL,
8/6/09 10:07:13 THAT WILL INCREASE IN THE FALL.
8/6/09 10:07:16 YOU CAN SEE A SUBSTANTIAL
8/6/09 10:07:17 DECLINE FROM THE PRIOR YEAR.
8/6/09 10:07:20 BUT WHEN WE ADD THAT, WATER,
8/6/09 10:07:20 IT
8/6/09 10:07:21 WILL GO UP.
8/6/09 10:07:24 THE MAYOR TALKED ABOUT
8/6/09 10:07:25 INVESTING IN NEIGHBOURHOODS.
8/6/09 10:07:26 THIS IS SOMETHING WE ARE VERY
8/6/09 10:07:26 PROUD OF.
8/6/09 10:07:29 YOU CAN SEE THE BIG
8/6/09 10:07:30 INCREASE
8/6/09 10:07:30 SINCE 2003.
8/6/09 10:07:32 ONCE AGAIN A 17 PERCENT
8/6/09 10:07:35 INCREASE FROM JUST LAST

8/6/09 10:07:42 WE WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE
8/6/09 10:07:45 INTO NEXT YEAR
8/6/09 10:07:46 AS WELL.
8/6/09 10:07:48 ALMOST $5 MILLION, FOR STRAIGHT
8/6/09 10:07:51 MAINTENANCE AND RESURFACING
8/6/09 10:07:52 BUT

8/6/09 10:07:56 TO EIGHT
8/6/09 10:07:57 .8 MILLION DOLLARS.
8/6/09 10:08:00 THIS IS ONE OF OUR
8/6/09 10:08:00 CAPITAL
8/6/09 10:08:01 IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS.
8/6/09 10:08:01 RIVER WALK.

8/6/09 10:11:40 JUST A
8/6/09 10:11:43 FEW
8/6/09 10:11:44 QUESTIONS, THE $2
8/6/09 10:11:45 MILLION ZACH AVENUE OF THE
8/6/09 10:11:48 ARTS, THE MAYOR MENTIONED THAT
8/6/09 10:11:51 BRIEFLY AND
8/6/09 10:11:52 SAID FOR PLANNING.
8/6/09 10:11:53 WE HAVEN'T HEARD ABOUT THAT
8/6/09 10:11:54 PROJECT FOR A COUPLE YEARS.
8/6/09 10:11:57 DO YOU HAVE ANY MORE DETAILS ON
8/6/09 10:11:59 WHAT $2 MILLION REPRESENTS IN.
8/6/09 10:12:01 >> NOT JUST PLANNING YOU WILL
8/6/09 10:12:03 BE HAPPY TO KNOW.
8/6/09 10:12:05 DESIGN, ENGINEERING AND
8/6/09 10:12:05 CONSTRUCTION.
8/6/09 10:12:06 WE DON'T REALLY KNOW IF $2
8/6/09 10:12:08 MILLION IS THE RIGHT NUMBER
8/6/09 10:12:10 BECAUSE IT HAS NOT BEEN
8/6/09 10:12:11 DESIGNED OR ENGINEERED BUT THAT
8/6/09 10:12:14 IS WHAT WE ARE BUDGETING.
8/6/09 10:12:15 WE WERE HOPING TIFF REVENUES
8/6/09 10:12:17 WOULD HAVE BEEN SUFFICIENT TO
8/6/09 10:12:19 PAY FOR THAT PROJECT.
8/6/09 10:12:22 BUT OF COURSE AS YOU KNOW,
8/6/09 10:12:22 TIFF
8/6/09 10:12:23 REVENUES HAVE DECLINED
8/6/09 10:12:25 ENORMOUSLY AND DOWNTOWN AND
8/6/09 10:12:27 DOWNTOWN REALLY THERE IS JUST
8/6/09 10:12:28 SUFFICIENT REVENUES TO PAY THE
8/6/09 10:12:31 DEBT SERVICE FRANKLY AND JUST A
8/6/09 10:12:32 LIT BIT ELSE.
8/6/09 10:12:33 SO INSTEAD, BECAUSE THE PROJECT
8/6/09 10:12:36 IS SO IMPORTANT, WE
8/6/09 10:12:37 ARE USING
8/6/09 10:12:38 CIT REV FOR THAT PURPOSEMENT I
8/6/09 10:12:42 THINK IT IS IN AN
8/6/09 10:12:42 RSP STAGE.
8/6/09 10:12:45 I THINK THERE IS AN RFP STAGE
8/6/09 10:12:46 BUT $2 MILLION IS FOR
8/6/09 10:12:49 CONSTRUCTION
8/6/09 10:12:51 AS WELL.
8/6/09 10:12:52 >> OKAY.

8/6/09 10:13:09 WE HAVEN'T HEARD ABOUT THAT IN

8/6/09 10:13:15 HEARD THERE WAS $750,000

8/6/09 10:13:21 OF DOLLARS NEEDED NOT JUST THE
8/6/09 10:13:24 BALUSTRADE BUT THE UNDERLYING
8/6/09 10:13:26 SEA WALL ON THE BAY SHORE.

8/6/09 10:13:30 PROJECT MONEY SET ASIDE FOR
8/6/09 10:13:30 THAT?
8/6/09 10:13:32 WHERE IS THAT FITTING ON THE
8/6/09 10:13:33 BUDGET?
8/6/09 10:13:34 >> NOT AT THIS TIME.
8/6/09 10:13:37 WE KNOW THAT IT IS A NEED
8/6/09 10:13:37 AND
8/6/09 10:13:40 IT IS PART OF ALL OF OUR NEEDS.
8/6/09 10:13:41 IT IS UNDER EVALUATION.
8/6/09 10:13:44 I CAN TALK TO HIM ABOUT IT
8/6/09 10:13:46 SPECIFICALLY BUT NOTHING IN
8/6/09 10:13:48 THIS BUDGET FOR THAT.

8/6/09 10:13:51 WE WILL TALK ABOUT THAT OVER
8/6/09 10:13:54 THE NEXT MONTH OR TWO.
8/6/09 10:13:57 THE TWO --THE EFFICIENCY TASK

8/6/09 10:14:01 GUESS FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS,
8/6/09 10:14:03 AND WE --A LOT OF TIMES WE
8/6/09 10:14:05 JUST SEE THE END RESULT OF
8/6/09 10:14:05 THAT.
8/6/09 10:14:07 WE DON'T REALLY HEAR ABOUT THEM
8/6/09 10:14:08 MEETING OR WHAT THEY ARE
8/6/09 10:14:10 TALKING ABOUT, THAT SORT OF
8/6/09 10:14:11 THING.
8/6/09 10:14:13 AS MR. MIRANDA POINTED OUT A
8/6/09 10:14:14 LITTLE WHILE AGO, THERE IS
8/6/09 10:14:17 PROBABLY SOME GOOD
8/6/09 10:14:19 IDEAS THAT
8/6/09 10:14:22 COUNCIL COULD THROW
8/6/09 10:14:23 INTO THE
8/6/09 10:14:24 EFFICIENCY TASK FORCE
8/6/09 10:14:26 CONSIDERING YOU HAVE DECADES OF

8/6/09 10:14:44 WAS IMPLEMENTED, THIS IS WHAT
8/6/09 10:14:44 WE SAVED.
8/6/09 10:14:46 I THINK THAT WOULD BE A GOOD
8/6/09 10:14:47 EXERCISE BACK AND FORTH WITH
8/6/09 10:14:49 COUNCIL AND THE COMMUNITY.
8/6/09 10:14:50 IF THEY ARE DOING GREAT THINGS
8/6/09 10:14:52 THEN THE COMMUNITY SHOULD HEAR
8/6/09 10:14:52 ABOUT IT.
8/6/09 10:14:54 WE ARE THE BEST PLACE FOR YOU
8/6/09 10:14:57 GUYS TO OUT THE THAT.

8/6/09 10:15:20 A PRELIMINARY REPORT IT MIGHT

8/6/09 10:21:15 IS THAT THE CITY AND COUNTY
8/6/09 10:21:17 DOES NOT SHARE THE SAME VALUES.
8/6/09 10:21:19 I AGREE WITH THAT IN A NUMBER
8/6/09 10:21:21 OF WAYS BECAUSE I AM A VOTER IN
8/6/09 10:21:23 THE CITY, AND THE COUNTY AND I
8/6/09 10:21:26 CARRY I BELIEVE THE SAME
8/6/09 10:21:27 VALUES
8/6/09 10:21:29 IN THE COUNTY AND THE CITY OF
8/6/09 10:21:29 TAMPA.
8/6/09 10:21:32 SO THIS IS IMPORTANT TO THE
8/6/09 10:21:34 CITIZENS OF TAMPA THAT IF MONEY
8/6/09 10:21:37 IS TO BE SAVED BY
8/6/09 10:21:38 CONSOLIDATING
8/6/09 10:21:39 SERVICES AND INCREASING THE
8/6/09 10:21:41 SERVICE TO THE CITIZENS OF
8/6/09 10:21:44 TAMPA, WE WANT COUNCIL AND
8/6/09 10:21:45 EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT
8/6/09 10:21:48 TO IMPLEMENT IT, DON'T BE
8/6/09 10:21:50 AFRAID TO MAKE THE CHANGE IF IT
8/6/09 10:21:52 IS PROVED TO BE A POSITIVE
8/6/09 10:21:55 CHANGE THAT CAN SAVE MONEY AND
8/6/09 10:21:58 REDUCE IT FOR PLUS MILLION
8/6/09 10:21:58 DOLLAR DEFICITS.
8/6/09 10:22:00 THESE ARE DIFFERENT TIMES.
8/6/09 10:22:02 WE CANNOT OPERATE LIKE WE DID
8/6/09 10:22:05 IN THE PAST AND NOT CONDUCT
8/6/09 10:22:06 GOVERNMENT OUT OF FEAR.
8/6/09 10:22:09 YOU KNOW, WE HAVE A SHARP
8/6/09 10:22:10 CITY
8/6/09 10:22:12 COUNCIL, VERY TALENTED, LONG
8/6/09 10:22:12 EXPERIENCED BODY.
8/6/09 10:22:14 WE TRUST THIS COUNCIL TO MAKE
8/6/09 10:22:16 THE RIGHT DECISIONS WHEN AN
8/6/09 10:22:17 OPPORTUNITY TO COME BEFORE YOU
8/6/09 10:22:19 ALL FOR A POSITIVE CHANGE.
8/6/09 10:22:20 I AM LOOKING FOR IT.
8/6/09 10:22:21 I KNOW IT HAS GOT TO BE
8/6/09 10:22:23 SOMETHING BETWEEN CITY AND THIS
8/6/09 10:22:25 COUNTY THAT CAN BE IMPLEMENTED
8/6/09 10:22:28 THAT CAN SAVE THE CITIZENS OF
8/6/09 10:22:30 TAMPA MONEY, TAX DOLLARS AND
8/6/09 10:22:32 INCREASE SERVICES TO BOTH
8/6/09 10:22:33 COUNTY AND CITY.
8/6/09 10:22:34 AND SO THAT IS WHAT I AM
8/6/09 10:22:37 WATCHING FOR, SOME SERIOUS
8/6/09 10:22:38 CONSIDERATION OF CONSOLIDATION
8/6/09 10:22:38 OF SERVICES.
8/6/09 10:22:40 THAT IS THE ONLY WAY I BELIEVE
8/6/09 10:22:43 WE ARE GOING
8/6/09 10:22:43 TO BE ABLE TO
8/6/09 10:22:46 THRIVE WITH COUNTY RESIDENTS
8/6/09 10:22:47 OR
8/6/09 10:22:48 CITY RESIDENTKEEP PROPERTY
8/6/09 10:22:49 TAXES AT THE RATE THEY ARE.
8/6/09 10:22:52 THIS IS A TOUGH TIME, TOUGH
8/6/09 10:22:53 BUDGET.
8/6/09 10:22:54 WE TRUST THE COUNCIL AND MAYOR
8/6/09 10:22:56 TO DO THE RIGHT THING.
8/6/09 10:22:58 WHAT I HAVE HEARD FROM THE
8/6/09 10:23:01 MAYOR SEEMED TO BE POSITIVE AND
8/6/09 10:23:02 OUTLOOKING.
8/6/09 10:23:05 I AM LOOKING FOR YOU
8/6/09 10:23:06 ALL
8/6/09 10:23:07 WORKING TOGETHER, MAYOR, AND
8/6/09 10:23:09 COUNCIL WORKING TOGETHER AND
8/6/09 10:23:11 EXECUTIVE AND ADMINISTRATIVE

8/6/09 10:23:17 QUESTIONS SO YOU CAN MAKE THE
8/6/09 10:23:17 RIGHT DECISION.
8/6/09 10:23:18 WHEN YOU HAVE THIS KIND OF
8/6/09 10:23:20 DEFICIT IT IS VERY IMPORTANT
8/6/09 10:23:21 EVERYTHING IS ON THIS TABLE.
8/6/09 10:23:23 I BELIEVE THIS BUDGET CYCLE THE
8/6/09 10:23:25 CITIZENS OF TAMPA WILL BE
8/6/09 10:23:27 WATCHING LIKE THEY HAVE NEVER
8/6/09 10:23:29 WATCHED BEFORE, BE INVOLVED

8/6/09 10:23:35 IN PUBLIC HEARINGS LIKE THEY
8/6/09 10:23:36 HAVE NEVER DONE BEFORE.
8/6/09 10:23:39 WE REQUEST THIS COUNCIL BE ON
8/6/09 10:23:42 WATCH ON BEHALF OF CONSTITUENTS
8/6/09 10:23:42 OF TAMPA.

8/6/09 10:24:22 CITY COUNCIL P. ADMINISTRATION,

8/6/09 10:25:02 THANK YOU MR. WHITE.
8/6/09 10:25:04 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 10:25:05 >> NEXT SPEAKER.
8/6/09 10:25:08 >>> GOOD MORNING
8/6/09 10:25:10 MR. CHAIRMAN.
8/6/09 10:25:13 I AM JOHN GRANDOLF.
8/6/09 10:25:14 I REPRESENT CREST SQUARE.
8/6/09 10:25:17 THIS MORNING YOU HAVE TWO ITEMS
8/6/09 10:25:20 ON YOUR AGENDA, ITEM 30 AND
8/6/09 10:25:20 32.
8/6/09 10:25:23 BOTH OF WHICH ARE STAFF
8/6/09 10:25:24 REPORTS.
8/6/09 10:25:25 AND RATHER THAN GIVE YOU PUBLIC
8/6/09 10:25:28 COMMENT AT THIS TIME, I ASK IF
8/6/09 10:25:30 YOU WOULD GIVE US THE COURTESY
8/6/09 10:25:31 OF ALLOWING OUR COMMENT TO
8/6/09 10:25:34 FOLLOW THE STAFF REPORT THAT
8/6/09 10:25:35 YOU RECEIVE FROM MR. SLATERS
8/6/09 10:25:35 OFFICE.
8/6/09 10:25:37 I THINK IT WOULD BE MORE
8/6/09 10:25:39 BENEFICIAL TO COUNCIL TO HEAR
8/6/09 10:25:41 OUR RESPONSE AFTER YOU HEAR A
8/6/09 10:25:44 REPORT FROM STAFF.
8/6/09 10:25:45 A FEW PROCEDURE HALL ISSUES WE
8/6/09 10:25:48 NEED TO EXPLAIN SO IT WOULD
8/6/09 10:25:50 FLOW BETTER AT THAT TIME.
8/6/09 10:25:52 >> WELL, THE PROBLEM IS THAT
8/6/09 10:25:54 COUNCIL HAS A POLICY IN PLACE I
8/6/09 10:25:56 BELIEVE AND A RULE THAT DURING
8/6/09 10:25:58 STAFF REPORTS WE TAKE NO PUBLIC
8/6/09 10:25:59 COMMENT.
8/6/09 10:26:00 IS THAT THE RULE?
8/6/09 10:26:03 >> THAT IS THE RULE UNLESS YOU
8/6/09 10:26:06 CHOOSE TO
8/6/09 10:26:08 WAIVE IT.
8/6/09 10:26:08 >> OKAY.
8/6/09 10:26:11 THERE IS A
8/6/09 10:26:12 MOTION.
8/6/09 10:26:15 >> IT REQUIRES A UNANIMOUS VOTE
8/6/09 10:26:16 TO WAIVE THE RULE.
8/6/09 10:26:18 >> THERE IS A MOTION THEN WE
8/6/09 10:26:19 WILL HAVE TO MAKE THOSE TWO
8/6/09 10:26:21 ITEMS LAST BECAUSE THEY WILL
8/6/09 10:26:22 PROBABLY GO BACK AND FORTH AND
8/6/09 10:26:24 WE ONLY ALLOW FIVE MINUTES.
8/6/09 10:26:26 >> YES, I THINK IT MAKES SENSE
8/6/09 10:26:27 ESPECIALLY BECAUSE HERE YOU
8/6/09 10:26:29 HAVE A CASE OF PROPERTY RIGHTS.
8/6/09 10:26:32 WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ONE SINGLE
8/6/09 10:26:33 PROPERTY NOT ABOUT A GENERAL
8/6/09 10:26:35 POLICY EFFECTING A LOT OF
8/6/09 10:26:36 PROPERTY.
8/6/09 10:26:37 IN THIS CASE IT MAKES SENSE.
8/6/09 10:26:39 >> WELL, WE WILL MAKE THOSE
8/6/09 10:26:42 ITEMS LAST FOR THE STAFF
8/6/09 10:26:42 REPORT
8/6/09 10:26:45 FOR THE MORNING.
8/6/09 10:26:47 ALL IN FAVOUR AAYE.
8/6/09 10:26:48 >> AYE.

8/6/09 10:29:38 I AM
8/6/09 10:29:41 CONCERNED ABOUT THE FEE
8/6/09 10:29:42 FOR THE
8/6/09 10:29:45 PARKS
8/6/09 10:29:48 AND RECREATION

8/6/09 10:30:01 ARE LIVING, BUT JUST
8/6/09 10:30:01 TO EXIST,
8/6/09 10:30:04 HOW IN THE
8/6/09 10:30:07 WORLD THAT YOU

8/6/09 10:30:28 CHILD, YOU GOING TO HAVE TO PAY

8/6/09 10:30:32 THEY SAY THEY GOING TO GIVE
8/6/09 10:30:34 SOME DISCOUNTS ON THAT.
8/6/09 10:30:36 IT IS LUDICROUS ALTS TO WANT
8/6/09 10:30:39 POOR PEOPLE --ALSO TO
8/6/09 10:30:40 WANT
8/6/09 10:30:43 POOR PEOPLE PAYING $44 FOR

8/6/09 10:31:16 THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A NO VOTE
8/6/09 10:31:19 RIGHT THEN AND
8/6/09 10:31:19 THERE.
8/6/09 10:31:22 MY SUGGESTION IS THAT
8/6/09 10:31:23 YOU GET
8/6/09 10:31:26 SOME BODY, SOME INDEPENDENT
8/6/09 10:31:29 PERSON WHO IS

8/6/09 10:42:52 POINT FOR DEBRIS AND LITTER.
8/6/09 10:42:54 HOW WOULD YOU SUGGEST THAT WE
8/6/09 10:42:57 BALANCE THE CONCERNS
8/6/09 10:43:00 OF THE
8/6/09 10:43:03 NEIGHBORS WITH THIS?
8/6/09 10:43:05 >> WITHIN OF THE THINGS WITH
8/6/09 10:43:08 ADDING CARP, AS AN EXAMPLE, WE
8/6/09 10:43:10 HAVE A CONCERN BECAUSE ONCE THE
8/6/09 10:43:13 CAMP EAT ALL THE PLANTS IN
8/6/09 10:43:14 THE
8/6/09 10:43:17 POND THEY ARE NO LONGER THERE
8/6/09 10:43:20 TO REMOVE THE POLLUTANTS IN THE
8/6/09 10:43:21 STORM WATER.
8/6/09 10:43:23 WE COULD MAKE IT VOID OF
8/6/09 10:43:25 VEGETATION BUT THEN IT WOULDN'T
8/6/09 10:43:28 BE FUNCTIONING AND REMOVING
8/6/09 10:43:28 KNEWRY CENTS.
8/6/09 10:43:31 THE CITY HAS TAKEN ON THE POND
8/6/09 10:43:32 AND PROVIDE ADD SIGNIFICANTLY
8/6/09 10:43:33 HIGHER LEVEL OF MAINTENANCE
8/6/09 10:43:36 BECAUSE IT IS NOT A CITY POND.
8/6/09 10:43:38 IT IS OWNED BY CROSS TOWN
8/6/09 10:43:38 AUTHORITY.
8/6/09 10:43:40 WE ARE MAINTAINING IT AT A
8/6/09 10:43:43 HIGHER LEVEL OF SERVICE THAN
8/6/09 10:43:44 IF
8/6/09 10:43:47 IT WERE MAINTAINED
8/6/09 10:43:50 BY
8/6/09 10:43:51 THE
8/6/09 10:43:51 EXPRESSWAY.
8/6/09 10:43:53 THE EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY WOULD
8/6/09 10:43:55 JUST ACCUMULATE UNTIL IT IS
8/6/09 10:43:57 FULL AND THEN REMOVE IT IN ONE
8/6/09 10:43:58 FELL SWOOP.
8/6/09 10:44:01 WE HAVE TRIED A NUMBER OF
8/6/09 10:44:04 THINGS OVER THE YEARS, IT IS
8/6/09 10:44:07 RIGHT IN THE DOWNTOWN
8/6/09 10:44:08 HYDE PARK
8/6/09 10:44:08 AREA.
8/6/09 10:44:09 THE FOUNTAIN WAS ONE ATTEMPT
8/6/09 10:44:12 AND WE HAVE HAD ISSUES
8/6/09 10:44:13 EXPENSE
8/6/09 10:44:15 OPERATING IT AND SO ON.
8/6/09 10:44:17 IT HAS TO DO AS MUCH WITH THE
8/6/09 10:44:19 BACKDROP OF HAVING THE EXPRESS
8/6/09 10:44:20 WAY BEHIND IT.
8/6/09 10:44:23 IT DOESN'T SIT IN A GREAT
8/6/09 10:44:23 FRONT
8/6/09 10:44:25 GROUND, FOREGROUND ENVIRONMENT.
8/6/09 10:44:25 NOTHING AROUND IT.
8/6/09 10:44:28 IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO MAKE
8/6/09 10:44:31 THIS POND ANYTHING BUT A
8/6/09 10:44:32 TRIANGULAR POND.
8/6/09 10:44:35 WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO NOW,
8/6/09 10:44:36 WE HAVE TRIED PLANTING AROUND
8/6/09 10:44:39 THE FENCE AND
8/6/09 10:44:41 DONE THAT
8/6/09 10:44:42 RECENTLY.
8/6/09 10:44:44 WE HAVE DONE THAT.
8/6/09 10:44:47 WE WILL PLANT ALONG THE FENCE
8/6/09 10:44:49 LINE WITH A CLIMBING JASMINE
8/6/09 10:44:50 THAT SHOULD HELP AESTHETICS.
8/6/09 10:44:52 WE WILL TRY THAT.
8/6/09 10:44:54 A VERY LOW COST OPTION AND WE
8/6/09 10:44:57 WILL WORK HARD TO MAKE THE
8/6/09 10:44:59 MOEING CON TRACK --MAKE SURE
8/6/09 10:45:00 THE MOEING CONTRACTOR DOESN'T
8/6/09 10:45:01 MOE IT DOWN.
8/6/09 10:45:04 WE WILL SEE HOW THAT WORKS OUT.
8/6/09 10:45:07 >> I THINK THAT IS AN
8/6/09 10:45:07 EXCELLENT
8/6/09 10:45:07 SUGGESTION.
8/6/09 10:45:10 THE NEIGHBORS HAVE
8/6/09 10:45:12 EXPRESSED A
8/6/09 10:45:13 WILLINGNESS TO SUPPLEMENT THE
8/6/09 10:45:15 CLEANING THE CITY DOES WITH
8/6/09 10:45:15 THEIR OWN.
8/6/09 10:45:17 COULD THAT BE POSES UNTIL.
8/6/09 10:45:19 >> WE HAVE BEEN APOSTED --
8/6/09 10:45:20 POSSIBLE.
8/6/09 10:45:21 WE HAVE BEEN APPROACHED BY THEM
8/6/09 10:45:24 A NUMBER OF TIMES.
8/6/09 10:45:24 IT IS POSSIBLE.
8/6/09 10:45:27 THERE IS SIGNIFICANT HURDLES
8/6/09 10:45:27 WITH RESPECT TO LIABILITY.
8/6/09 10:45:29 IT IS NOT OUR POND.
8/6/09 10:45:32 WE ARE MAINTAINING
8/6/09 10:45:32 SOMEONE
8/6/09 10:45:33 ELSE'S FACILITY.
8/6/09 10:45:35 IF SOMEONE ELSE COMES ON TO
8/6/09 10:45:37 THEIR PROPERTY, WE FEEL IT CAN
8/6/09 10:45:40 BE WORKED THROUGH BUT IT WILL
8/6/09 10:45:41 BE A LENGTHY PROCESS.
8/6/09 10:45:43 >> EXPRESSWAY PEOPLE ARE HAPPY
8/6/09 10:45:45 FOR IT TO BE IMPROVED.
8/6/09 10:45:47 SO WHAT WOULD BE THE AVENUE
8/6/09 10:45:49 THAT YOU WOULD SUGGEST FOR
8/6/09 10:45:52 RESIDENTS TO WORK WITH YOU,
8/6/09 10:45:55 WITH EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY TO
8/6/09 10:45:55 IMPROVE IT.
8/6/09 10:45:56 >> I UNDERSTAND.
8/6/09 10:45:59 WE HAVE TAKEN THESE ENQUIRIES A
8/6/09 10:45:59 NUMBER OF TIMES.
8/6/09 10:46:01 JUST HAVE THEM CONTACT US.
8/6/09 10:46:02 >> WOULD YOU BE THE PERSON?
8/6/09 10:46:04 >> YES, MA'AM.
8/6/09 10:46:06 >>>I WILL CREATE THAT
8/6/09 10:46:06 OPPORTUNITY.
8/6/09 10:46:08 THEY ARE REALLY UPSET WITH THE
8/6/09 10:46:08 WAY IT LOOKS.
8/6/09 10:46:11 IT IS SUCH A VISIBLE ENTRY
8/6/09 10:46:12 POINT TO THEIR NEIGHBOURHOOD
8/6/09 10:46:14 AND THEY REALLY ARE WILLING TO
8/6/09 10:46:17 PUT RESOURCES INTO IMPROVING
8/6/09 10:46:17 IT.
8/6/09 10:46:18 >> OKAY.
8/6/09 10:46:19 >> COUNCILMAN CAETANO.
8/6/09 10:46:22 >> DO WE COLLECT ANY MONEY FROM
8/6/09 10:46:23 EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY FOR
8/6/09 10:46:25 MAINTAINING THIS RUN OFF?
8/6/09 10:46:28 >> I DON'T BELIEVE WE
8/6/09 10:46:28 HAVE.
8/6/09 10:46:32 THE MAINTENANCE THEY
8/6/09 10:46:33 WOULD DO,
8/6/09 10:46:35 FOR INSTANCE, WE MOW THE POND
8/6/09 10:46:38 EVERY 36 DAYS, THEY WOULD
8/6/09 10:46:40 DO IT
8/6/09 10:46:41 EVERY 60.
8/6/09 10:46:43 THEY WOULD COMPENSATE IT US
8/6/09 10:46:44 THAT DIFFERENCE.
8/6/09 10:46:45 >> WHAT ARE WE SPENDING TO
8/6/09 10:46:46 MAINTAIN THIS POND?
8/6/09 10:46:48 YOU SAID IT WAS EXPENSIVE.
8/6/09 10:46:52 THAT IS WHY YOU HAVE
8/6/09 10:46:52 THE
8/6/09 10:46:55 FILTRATION SYSTEM.
8/6/09 10:46:56 >> AIRRATION.
8/6/09 10:46:56 >> YES.
8/6/09 10:46:57 THERE IS NO LIABILITY ON THEIR
8/6/09 10:46:57 PART.
8/6/09 10:47:00 WE WANTED TO INSTALL IT WE DID
8/6/09 10:47:01 THAT AT OUR EXPENSE.
8/6/09 10:47:03 >> WE COLLECT NOTHING FOR DOING
8/6/09 10:47:06 THIS FOR THEM.
8/6/09 10:47:06 >> CORRECT.
8/6/09 10:47:09 BASICALLY WE ARE MOWING.
8/6/09 10:47:11 THAT IS THE ONLY SERVICE THEY
8/6/09 10:47:12 WOULD PROVIDE INSTEAD OF US.
8/6/09 10:47:14 >> HOW IS PUTTING THE CHEMICALS
8/6/09 10:47:15 IN.
8/6/09 10:47:16 >> NO CHEMICALS.
8/6/09 10:47:17 >> ORGANIC.
8/6/09 10:47:19 >> OKAY THANK YOU.
8/6/09 10:47:20 COUNCILMAN DINGFELDER.
8/6/09 10:47:22 >> THANK YOU WALTER.
8/6/09 10:47:24 WERE YOU HERE FOUR OR FIVE
8/6/09 10:47:26 YEARS AGO WHEN THAT SAME POND
8/6/09 10:47:29 GOT I DON'T KNOW DREDGED
8/6/09 10:47:30 IS THE
8/6/09 10:47:30 APPROPRIATE WORD,.
8/6/09 10:47:32 >> NO, I WASN'T.
8/6/09 10:47:35 I AM AWARE OF THAT
8/6/09 10:47:35 ACTIVITY.
8/6/09 10:47:35 YES.
8/6/09 10:47:37 >> AND DO YOU KNOW WHY WE DID
8/6/09 10:47:40 IT THEN AND WHY WE WOULDN'T
8/6/09 10:47:40 CONTINUE?
8/6/09 10:47:42 >> TWO REASONS, ONE IS THAT TO
8/6/09 10:47:44 GET INTO A HARVESTING REGIME IN
8/6/09 10:47:46 ANY POND LIKE THIS IS ACTUALLY
8/6/09 10:47:47 A GOOD THING TO DO BECAUSE
8/6/09 10:47:51 BASICALLY THEN YOU
8/6/09 10:47:52 ARE REMOVING
8/6/09 10:47:53 NUTRIENTS IN ONE FELL SWOOP.
8/6/09 10:47:55 BUT FRANKLY, IT IS VERY
8/6/09 10:47:55 EXPENSIVE TO REMOVE.
8/6/09 10:47:57 THERE IS A LOT OF COMMUNITY
8/6/09 10:47:59 CONCERNS WHEN YOU DO THAT
8/6/09 10:48:01 BECAUSE FRANKLY IT SMELLS A LOT
8/6/09 10:48:02 DURING THE ACTIVITY ITSELF.
8/6/09 10:48:04 YOU RAISE QUITE A FEW CONCERNS
8/6/09 10:48:06 WHEN YOU DO AN EVENT LIKE THAT
8/6/09 10:48:08 BECAUSE IT STINKS FOR QUITE
8/6/09 10:48:08 AWHILE.
8/6/09 10:48:09 YOU ARE TURNING OVER AND
8/6/09 10:48:10 TURNING UP THE POND.
8/6/09 10:48:13 WE HAD A
8/6/09 10:48:16 NUMBER
8/6/09 10:48:19 OF
8/6/09 10:48:21 CONCERNS
8/6/09 10:48:21 FROM RESIDENTS.
8/6/09 10:48:22 IT STANK FOR A COUPLE MONTHS.
8/6/09 10:48:24 >> HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
8/6/09 10:48:26 >> 10S OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
8/6/09 10:48:28 RANGE BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE
8/6/09 10:48:30 DRIED, HAULED, IT IS A WASTE
8/6/09 10:48:30 PRODUCT.
8/6/09 10:48:34 IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE TO
8/6/09 10:48:35 DO.
8/6/09 10:48:37 >> I MEAN, IF YOUR PREDECESSOR
8/6/09 10:48:39 ELECTED TO DO IT THEN, IS IT
8/6/09 10:48:42 --YOU ARE NOT ELECTING TO DO
8/6/09 10:48:43 IT NOW?
8/6/09 10:48:46 >> WELL, IT WAS
8/6/09 10:48:46 INEFFECTIVE
8/6/09 10:48:49 BECAUSE IT GREW BACK
8/6/09 10:48:49 IMMEDIATELY.
8/6/09 10:48:51 YOU CAN'T GO IN AND HARVEST IT
8/6/09 10:48:53 ONCE IT NEEDS TO BE HARVESTED A
8/6/09 10:48:55 POND LIKE THAT WOULD NEED TO BE
8/6/09 10:48:56 HARVESTED TWICE A YEAR TO KEEP
8/6/09 10:48:59 IT IF YOU WANTED
8/6/09 10:49:02 TO
8/6/09 10:49:05 KEEP IT
8/6/09 10:49:08 DOWN.
8/6/09 10:49:17 >> AT THAT POINT
8/6/09 10:49:17 THERE WASN'T
8/6/09 10:49:19 FOLKS LIVING ON THE POND THERE.
8/6/09 10:49:21 >> RIGHT AND WE STILL HAD QUITE
8/6/09 10:49:22 A FEW CALLS.
8/6/09 10:49:24 >> SO I CAN UNDERSTAND, THIS IS
8/6/09 10:49:27 OWNED BY THE EXPRESSWAY
8/6/09 10:49:27 AUTHORITY?
8/6/09 10:49:30 >> ACTUALLY VERY COMPLICATED.
8/6/09 10:49:33 OWNED BY DOT AND
8/6/09 10:49:34 CONSTRUCTED BY
8/6/09 10:49:37 EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY, VERY
8/6/09 10:49:39 COMPLEX RELATIONSHIP, DOT,
8/6/09 10:49:41 EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY, AND CITY.
8/6/09 10:49:44 >> SO THIS MEANS THAT WE ARE
8/6/09 10:49:47 IN, CITY WOULD MAINTAIN IT?
8/6/09 10:49:48 >> CORRECT.
8/6/09 10:49:50 >> ANY SHARED COSTS?
8/6/09 10:49:53 >> I DON'T BELIEVE
8/6/09 10:49:54 THERE IS.
8/6/09 10:49:55 NO, SIR.
8/6/09 10:49:58 >> ANYBODY
8/6/09 10:49:59 APPROACH EXPRESSWAY
8/6/09 10:50:02 AUTHORITY DOT FOR ANY COST?
8/6/09 10:50:03 >> NOT PARTICULARLY.
8/6/09 10:50:06 WE HAVE COST SHARING MEASURES
8/6/09 10:50:09 ON DOT WITH STREET SWEEPING
8/6/09 10:50:09 ON
8/6/09 10:50:09 STATE ROADSO FORTH.
8/6/09 10:50:11 THIS IS PRETTY MINOR IN THE
8/6/09 10:50:13 AMOUNT OF MOWING THAT NEEDS TO
8/6/09 10:50:15 BE DONE AROUND THIS POND.
8/6/09 10:50:17 SO IT WAS NOT DONE INITIALLY
8/6/09 10:50:19 AND TO --WE HAVEN'T
8/6/09 10:50:21 APPROACHED THEM TO REOPEN THE
8/6/09 10:50:22 AGREEMENT.
8/6/09 10:50:23 >> I WILL ARRANGE THAT BECAUSE
8/6/09 10:50:24 IT HAS BEEN A CONCERN.
8/6/09 10:50:26 THAT IS WHAT I AM HEARING
8/6/09 10:50:26 TODAY.
8/6/09 10:50:28 IF THIS IS THAT MINOR WE NEED
8/6/09 10:50:29 TO DAY CARE CARE OF IT.
8/6/09 10:50:32 I WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO
8/6/09 10:50:33 APPROACH THE EXPRESSWAY
8/6/09 10:50:34 AUTHORITY I SERVE ON THERE, YOU
8/6/09 10:50:37 NEED TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE.
8/6/09 10:50:39 YOU NEED TO TELL ME DO WE HAVE
8/6/09 10:50:40 IT UNDER CONTROL OR NOT AND I
8/6/09 10:50:42 CAN TELL THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
8/6/09 10:50:44 WE NEED TO GET SOMETHING DONE.
8/6/09 10:50:45 >> AGAIN.
8/6/09 10:50:47 WE ARE MAINTAINING IT TO A
8/6/09 10:50:49 HIGHER LEVEL THAN THEY WOULD,
8/6/09 10:50:51 SO WE COULD ACTUALLY ASK FOR
8/6/09 10:50:53 SOME COMPENSATION FOR WHAT WE
8/6/09 10:50:54 ARE DOING.
8/6/09 10:50:57 I WILL BE HAPPY TO
8/6/09 10:50:58 PROVIDE
8/6/09 10:50:59 NUMBERS.
8/6/09 10:50:59 >> COUNCIL,.
8/6/09 10:51:00 >> MR. CHAIRMAN, IF YOU WOULD
8/6/09 10:51:00 DO THAT.
8/6/09 10:51:03 >> TO SEND A LETTER TO
8/6/09 10:51:04 THE
8/6/09 10:51:05 EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR EXPRESSING
8/6/09 10:51:08 OUR CONCERN AND THEY MAY HELP
8/6/09 10:51:09 WITH COMPENSATION.
8/6/09 10:51:10 >> SO MOVED.
8/6/09 10:51:11 THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BRINGING
8/6/09 10:51:14 IT FORWARD ON THE CITY'S
8/6/09 10:51:14 BEHALF.
8/6/09 10:51:16 >> MOVE AND SECOND ALL
8/6/09 10:51:18 SIGNIFICANT ANY FIE SAYING AYE.
8/6/09 10:51:18 >> OPPOSERS.
8/6/09 10:51:20 >> WE WILL DRAFT A LET TORE GO
8/6/09 10:51:23 OVER TO THE
8/6/09 10:51:24 EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR,

8/6/09 10:51:27 THEY DO HAVE A FEW
8/6/09 10:51:27 DOLLARS.
8/6/09 10:51:28 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 10:51:30 THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
8/6/09 10:51:33 >> $75

8/6/09 10:51:46 OKAY.

8/6/09 10:51:49 >>> MR. CHAIRMAN, WHILE MR.
8/6/09 10:51:51 FLETCHER IS COMING UP HERE,
8/6/09 10:51:53 WHAT IS WRITESSEN HERE, --
8/6/09 10:51:56 WRITTEN HERE, SOME TIMES OF
8/6/09 10:51:58 WHAT IS INTENDED BY COUNCIL IS
8/6/09 10:51:59 NOT WHAT GETS WRITTEN DOWN.
8/6/09 10:52:01 THE INTENT WAS NOT THE LOOK AT
8/6/09 10:52:03 CHANGING THE ORDINANCE.
8/6/09 10:52:06 THE INTENT WAS TO CREATE A SOFT
8/6/09 10:52:09 LETTER SYSTEM
8/6/09 10:52:12 FORGETTING THE
8/6/09 10:52:13 ORDINANCE IMPLEMENTED.

8/6/09 10:52:17 CHIP FLETCHER.
8/6/09 10:52:17 CITY ATTORNEY.
8/6/09 10:52:20 AT A PRIOR MEETING,
8/6/09 10:52:22 THIS ISSUE
8/6/09 10:52:23 WAS DISCUSSED.
8/6/09 10:52:25 THE POLICE DEPARTMENT APPEARED,
8/6/09 10:52:25 I APPEARED.
8/6/09 10:52:27 THERE WAS QUITE A BIT OF PUBLIC
8/6/09 10:52:28 COMMENT.
8/6/09 10:52:31 AS A RESULT OF THAT, OUR
8/6/09 10:52:33 DEPARTMENT WAS ASKED TO LOOK AT
8/6/09 10:52:36 A COUPLE DIFFERENT THINGS.
8/6/09 10:52:39 ONE WAS ANY LEGAL
8/6/09 10:52:39 ISSUES
8/6/09 10:52:40 ASSOCIATED WITH IMPLEMENTATION
8/6/09 10:52:42 OF THE SOFT LETTER PROGRAM AS
8/6/09 10:52:44 DESCRIBED AT THE PRIOR MEETING.
8/6/09 10:52:47 WE HAVE NOT IDENTIFIED
8/6/09 10:52:48 ANY
8/6/09 10:52:49 SIGNIFICANT LEGAL ISSUES.
8/6/09 10:52:50 THERE ARE PROCEDURAL HURDLES WE
8/6/09 10:52:53 WOULD NEED TO GO THROUGH TO
8/6/09 10:52:54 IMPLEMENT IT WHICH WE CAN TALK
8/6/09 10:52:56 ABOUT IF WE NEED TO.
8/6/09 10:52:59 THEY ARE NOT IMPEDIMENTS IN
8/6/09 10:53:00 MY
8/6/09 10:53:02 OPINION TO IMPLEMENTING THE
8/6/09 10:53:03 PROGRAM.
8/6/09 10:53:04 THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, DID
8/6/09 10:53:05 APPEAR THEY RAISED A NUMBER OF
8/6/09 10:53:08 QUESTIONING AS TO WHETHER OR
8/6/09 10:53:10 NOT THIS WAS AN APPROPRIATE
8/6/09 10:53:12 HELP TO LAW ENFORCEMENT TOOL.
8/6/09 10:53:14 IN ADDITION, THERE WAS QUITE A
8/6/09 10:53:17 BIT OF DISCUSSION
8/6/09 10:53:18 RELATED TO
8/6/09 10:53:21 PENALTIES FOR VIOLATION OF
8/6/09 10:53:23 EITHER STATE LAW, OR A CITY
8/6/09 10:53:25 ORDINANCE AND I THINK THAT MAY
8/6/09 10:53:27 BE WHAT RESULTED IN THIS
8/6/09 10:53:28 LANGUAGE BEING IN THE MOTION.
8/6/09 10:53:31 I WAS ASKED TO LOOK AT
8/6/09 10:53:32 CITY OF
8/6/09 10:53:32 SARASOTA.
8/6/09 10:53:35 THEY HAVE A ORDINANCE IN
8/6/09 10:53:36 PLACE
8/6/09 10:53:37 THAT EVENTUALLY PROVIDES
8/6/09 10:53:38 ADDITIONAL PENALTIES FOR
8/6/09 10:53:41 VIOLATION OF STATE
8/6/09 10:53:41 LAW THAT
8/6/09 10:53:43 APPLYS TO LOUD VEHICLE THAT IS
8/6/09 10:53:47 OUR OFFICERS HAVE BEEN
8/6/09 10:53:47 DIRECTLY
8/6/09 10:53:49 ENFORCING AND JUST REPORT BACK
8/6/09 10:53:52 ON CITY OF SARASOTA'S PROGRAM
8/6/09 10:53:54 PROVIDES FOR ELEVATED FINES IN
8/6/09 10:53:57 HIGHER THAN WHAT STATE LAW
8/6/09 10:53:58 WOULD PROVIDE.
8/6/09 10:54:01 IT ALSO PROVIDES
8/6/09 10:54:04 FOR
8/6/09 10:54:05 IMPOUNDMENT OF VEHICLES.
8/6/09 10:54:07 THAT IS A LITIGATION IN FEDERAL
8/6/09 10:54:07 COURT.
8/6/09 10:54:10 BASED ON REVIEW OF THAT CASE, I
8/6/09 10:54:12 WOULD NOT RECOMMEND GOING IN
8/6/09 10:54:12 THAT DIRECTION.
8/6/09 10:54:15 I DON'T KNOW IF THAT WAS
8/6/09 10:54:16 COUNCIL'S DESIRE BUT I WAS
8/6/09 10:54:18 ASKED TO LOOK INTO THAT ISSUE.
8/6/09 10:54:21 THAT IS REALLY THE UPDATE
8/6/09 10:54:21 ON
8/6/09 10:54:22 THIS ISSUE.
8/6/09 10:54:24 I WILL ALSO MENTION, I DON'T
8/6/09 10:54:25 BELIEVE THAT ANYBODY IS HERE
8/6/09 10:54:28 FROM THE POLICE DEPARTMENT
8/6/09 10:54:28 TODAY.
8/6/09 10:54:31 HOWEVER, THE CHIEF WAS HERE
8/6/09 10:54:34 THIS MORNING, AND HE DID MEET
8/6/09 10:54:35 WITH
8/6/09 10:54:38 --OUT IN THE --BY THE
8/6/09 10:54:40 ELEVATORS WITH MISS ELLIS.
8/6/09 10:54:42 THEY TALKED ABOUT SOME ISSUES.
8/6/09 10:54:43 MY UNDERSTANDING FROM THE CHIEF
8/6/09 10:54:46 IS THAT HE HAS ASKED OR INVITED
8/6/09 10:54:48 MISS ELLIS TO MEET WITH THE
8/6/09 10:54:49 POLICE DEPARTMENT AND GO OVER
8/6/09 10:54:52 SOME OF THEIR CONCERNS.
8/6/09 10:54:54 AND IF YOU LIKE, CAN I RELATE
8/6/09 10:54:55 WHAT SOME OF THOSE WERE FROM
8/6/09 10:54:58 THE LAST MEETING BUT MY
8/6/09 10:54:59 PREFERENCE WOULD BE IF YOU
8/6/09 10:55:01 WOULD LIKE TO GET INTO THOSE,
8/6/09 10:55:03 WE ASK THE POLICE DEPARTMENT TO
8/6/09 10:55:06 ADDRESS THEM DIRECTLY TO
8/6/09 10:55:07 COUNCIL.
8/6/09 10:55:09 >> COUNCILMAN SAUL-SENA AND
8/6/09 10:55:09 MULHERN.
8/6/09 10:55:12 >> THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPORT
8/6/09 10:55:14 THERE ARE NO LEGAL IMPEDIMENTS
8/6/09 10:55:17 FOR CREATING A
8/6/09 10:55:18 SOFT LETTER
8/6/09 10:55:18 SYSTEM.
8/6/09 10:55:20 I UNDERSTAND THE SARASOTA
8/6/09 10:55:21 SITUATION IS DIFFERENT, WE ARE
8/6/09 10:55:24 NOT INTERESTED IN PURSUING
8/6/09 10:55:25 THAT.
8/6/09 10:55:26 MR. CLAY DANIELLES SPOKE ABOUT
8/6/09 10:55:29 THE 434 PEOPLE WHO SIGNED A
8/6/09 10:55:30 PETITION SAYING PLEASE ADDRESS
8/6/09 10:55:31 THIS.
8/6/09 10:55:32 I WOULD LIKE TO PURSUE SEEING
8/6/09 10:55:34 HOW THE POLICE COULD WORK WITH
8/6/09 10:55:37 THE CITIZENRY TO CREATE THIS.
8/6/09 10:55:38 YOUR RECOMMENDATION TO US IS
8/6/09 10:55:41 PUT IT BACK ON THE AGENDA FAR
8/6/09 10:55:42 DIRECT REPORT FROM POLICE?
8/6/09 10:55:45 >>>I WILL THINK THAT WOULD BE
8/6/09 10:55:45 APPROPRIATE ESPECIALLY SINCE
8/6/09 10:55:48 THEY ARE ALREADY ENGAGED WITH
8/6/09 10:55:51 MISS ELLIS TO EVALUATE WHAT
8/6/09 10:55:51 HER
8/6/09 10:55:53 PROPOSAL IS, WORK THROUGH WHAT
8/6/09 10:55:56 SOME OF THEIR
8/6/09 10:55:57 CONCERNS ARE.
8/6/09 10:55:59 FOR EXAMPLE, THEIR FOCUS HAS
8/6/09 10:56:02 BEEN ON WRITING ACTUAL
8/6/09 10:56:03 TICKETS
8/6/09 10:56:05 ON THE STATUTES, STATE STATUTE.
8/6/09 10:56:07 AND ONE OF THE ISSUES IS IF WE
8/6/09 10:56:10 HAVE ANOTHER AVENUE FOR PEOPLE
8/6/09 10:56:12 TO CALL, WILL THAT EFFECT THEIR
8/6/09 10:56:14 ABILITY TO GET COMPLAINTS AND
8/6/09 10:56:15 ISSUE TICKETS.
8/6/09 10:56:17 THEY WANT TO WORK THROUGH THOSE
8/6/09 10:56:19 KINDS OF ISSUES BECAUSE THE
8/6/09 10:56:20 SOFT LETTERS, THESE COMPLAINTS
8/6/09 10:56:22 DO NOT GIVE US A BASIS TO ISSUE
8/6/09 10:56:24 A CITATION OR TAKE ENFORCEMENT,
8/6/09 10:56:26 SIMPLY A LETTER TO THE
8/6/09 10:56:27 INDIVIDUAL SAYING PLEASE DON'T
8/6/09 10:56:29 CONTINUE TO DO THIS, IT IS A
8/6/09 10:56:30 VIOLATION OF STATE LAW.
8/6/09 10:56:33 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 10:56:35 >> COUNCIL WOMAN MULHERN.
8/6/09 10:56:37 >> THAT IS PART OF THE GOOD
8/6/09 10:56:38 THING ABOUT IT.
8/6/09 10:56:39 IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE A
8/6/09 10:56:42 CITATION OR TAKE UP COURT COSTS
8/6/09 10:56:45 OR IT DOESN'T HAVE TO TAKE
8/6/09 10:56:47 UP
8/6/09 10:56:48 OUR STAFF OR POLICE OFFICERS
8/6/09 10:56:49 COSTS.
8/6/09 10:56:50 I WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE THE
8/6/09 10:56:52 POLICE DEPARTMENT TO DO THIS.
8/6/09 10:56:53 BECAUSE THIS GROUP NOT ONLY HAS
8/6/09 10:56:55 HUGE AMOUNT OF SUPPORT FROM THE
8/6/09 10:56:57 COMMUNITY BUT THEY HAVE DONE
8/6/09 10:56:59 THE RESEARCH TO SHOW THAT I
8/6/09 10:57:02 THINK FOUR OR FIVE OTHER CITYS
8/6/09 10:57:02 IN PINELLAS ALONE ARE DOING
8/6/09 10:57:04 THIS AND IT IS WORKING.
8/6/09 10:57:06 I THINK I KNOW THEY ARE NOT
8/6/09 10:57:08 CRAZY ABOUT DOING IT, BUT IT
8/6/09 10:57:10 MIGHT BE WORTH IT FOR THEM TO
8/6/09 10:57:12 AT LEAST DO IT ON A TEMPORARY
8/6/09 10:57:15 BASIS AND SEE IF IT HELPS.
8/6/09 10:57:17 I JUST YOU KNOW --I KNOW THEY
8/6/09 10:57:18 --IT IS THEIR DECISION BUT I
8/6/09 10:57:21 WOULD JUST LIKE TO ENCOURAGE
8/6/09 10:57:23 THEM FOR DOING THAT IF THEY ARE
8/6/09 10:57:27 OPPOSED TO DOING IT, TRY IT ON
8/6/09 10:57:27 A TEMPORARY BASIS.
8/6/09 10:57:28 >> JUST ONE OTHER POINT I WOULD
8/6/09 10:57:30 MAKE, THE POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS
8/6/09 10:57:33 BASED ON THEIR LAST REPORT TO
8/6/09 10:57:35 COUNCIL, LOOKED AT IT
8/6/09 10:57:37 THOROUGHLY AND TALKED TO ST.
8/6/09 10:57:38 PETERSBURG AND ACTUALLY DID
8/6/09 10:57:40 REPORT TO COUNCIL ON HOW THAT
8/6/09 10:57:40 WORKED.
8/6/09 10:57:43 THERE IS A NONPROFIT THERE THAT
8/6/09 10:57:46 STRIKES ME AS SIMILAR TO
8/6/09 10:57:46 AN
8/6/09 10:57:48 ORGANIZATION OF OURS THAT HAS
8/6/09 10:57:51 AN ACTIVE ROLE IN HOW THIS
8/6/09 10:57:51 HAPPENS THROUGH VOLUNTEER
8/6/09 10:57:52 EFFORT.
8/6/09 10:57:54 THERE ARE A FEW MOVING PIECE.
8/6/09 10:57:57 THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING TO LOOK
8/6/09 10:58:00 TO AS WELL AS OUR COUNTER
8/6/09 10:58:00 PART
8/6/09 10:58:02 HERE IN FULFILLING THAT ROLE.
8/6/09 10:58:03 >> THE NEIGHBORS BROUGHT IT
8/6/09 10:58:03 HERE.
8/6/09 10:58:06 THEY HAVE AN IDEA AND A
8/6/09 10:58:07 PLAN
8/6/09 10:58:08 FORGETTING THIS.
8/6/09 10:58:09 >> COUNCILMAN DINGFELDER.
8/6/09 10:58:11 >>>I WILL THING IF THIS CAN BE
8/6/09 10:58:12 IMPLEMENTED WITH MINIMAL OR
8/6/09 10:58:15 NOMINAL CITY FUNDS,
8/6/09 10:58:18 YOU KNOW,
8/6/09 10:58:21 PERHAPS WITH
8/6/09 10:58:24 COOPERATION IT
8/6/09 10:58:26 SOUNDS LIKE YOU MIGHT TRY.
8/6/09 10:58:27 THE INTERESTING THING WE SHOULD
8/6/09 10:58:29 TRY IT --SOME BODY SAID WE
8/6/09 10:58:32 SHOULD TRY IT AND SEE HOW
8/6/09 10:58:34 IT IS
8/6/09 10:58:35 WORKING.
8/6/09 10:58:35 CREATES AN INTERESTING QUESTION
8/6/09 10:58:38 HOW DO YOU KNOW IF IT IS
8/6/09 10:58:38 WORKING?
8/6/09 10:58:41 IT IS NOT LIKE A
8/6/09 10:58:41 TYPICAL POLICE
8/6/09 10:58:43 CRIME STATISTIC WHERE YOU HAVE
8/6/09 10:58:45 A BENCHMARK TO GO BY.
8/6/09 10:58:48 HERE, HOW IS IT WORKING SEEMS
8/6/09 10:58:49 TO BE RATHER SUBJECTIVE.
8/6/09 10:58:51 YOU COULD SAY WELL, WE CAN LOOK
8/6/09 10:58:53 AND SEE HOW MANY POLICE
8/6/09 10:58:56 CITATIONS HAVE
8/6/09 10:58:57 BEEN ISSUED.
8/6/09 10:58:58 APPARENTLY IT HAS BECOME A
8/6/09 10:59:01 SUBJECT FOR POLICE
8/6/09 10:59:02 CITATIONS I
8/6/09 10:59:05 DON'T KNOW
8/6/09 10:59:11 I JUST THINK IT IS
8/6/09 10:59:11 OUT THERE.
8/6/09 10:59:14 >> IF THE COMPLAINTS GO DOWN,
8/6/09 10:59:17 IT PROBABLY IS WORKING YOU
8/6/09 10:59:18 KNOW.
8/6/09 10:59:20 IT IS NOT SCIENTIFIC BUT IF
8/6/09 10:59:22 PEOPLE QUIT COMPLAINING
8/6/09 10:59:24 PROBABLY IT IS WORKING.
8/6/09 10:59:27 >> OKAY [ STAND BY FOR
8/6/09 10:59:27 CHANGE
8/6/09 10:59:29 IN CAPTIONER ]

8/6/09 11:00:34 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 11:00:36 I LOOKED AT THE CALENDAR AND IT
8/6/09 11:00:37 SEEMS IF WE ASKED THE POLICE TO
8/6/09 11:00:39 APPEAR AND GIVE A REPORT ON
8/6/09 11:00:40 THIS ON SEPTEMBER 3rd THAT
8/6/09 11:00:42 GIVES THEM ALMOST A MONTH TO
8/6/09 11:00:44 HAVE THIS CONVERSATION AND COME
8/6/09 11:00:45 BACK SO THAT'S A
8/6/09 11:00:48 MOTION THE POLICE
8/6/09 11:00:49 APPEAR 10:30
8/6/09 11:00:51 SEPTEMBER 3rd UNDERSTAFF
8/6/09 11:00:52 REPORTS.
8/6/09 11:00:54 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 11:00:55 I'LL DEFINITELY SUPPORT THE
8/6/09 11:00:56 MOTION FOR FURTHER DISCUSSION
8/6/09 11:00:56 ON THIS.
8/6/09 11:00:58 I HAVE A THOUGHT.
8/6/09 11:01:00 REMEMBER A COUPLE YEARS AGO
8/6/09 11:01:03 WHEN THE
8/6/09 11:01:05 EAST TAMPA COMMUNITY
8/6/09 11:01:06 AND I KNOW THIS IS PROBABLY A
8/6/09 11:01:08 CITY WIDE ISSUE BUT IT APPEARS
8/6/09 11:01:11 MOST OF THE FOLKS, THE EAST
8/6/09 11:01:14 TAMPA FOLKS, WHEN THEY
8/6/09 11:01:15 WERE
8/6/09 11:01:16 COMPLAINING ABOUT THE
8/6/09 11:01:17 ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUE OF TRASH
8/6/09 11:01:20 BEING THROWN ON EMPTY LOTS, SO
8/6/09 11:01:23 THE, AS I RECALL,
8/6/09 11:01:26 THE CRA
8/6/09 11:01:28 AND
8/6/09 11:01:30 THE COMMUNITY CRA GROUP GOT
8/6/09 11:01:33 TOGETHER AND TALKED
8/6/09 11:01:33 ABOUT
8/6/09 11:01:36 FUNDING THE ENVIRONMENTAL
8/6/09 11:01:42 POLICE PROGRAM
8/6/09 11:01:49 . IT'S IMPORTANT
8/6/09 11:01:52 TO THE EAST TAMPA COMMUNITY
8/6/09 11:01:53 AND
8/6/09 11:01:53 MAYBE IF THE ENVIRONMENTAL
8/6/09 11:01:55 ISSUE HAS BEEN WORKING MAYBE WE
8/6/09 11:01:58 CAN SHIFT OVER SOME OF
8/6/09 11:01:58 THE
8/6/09 11:02:01 FOCUS OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL
8/6/09 11:02:04 POLICE UNIT
8/6/09 11:02:05 AND BECAUSE IT'S
8/6/09 11:02:08 ALWAYS COMES DOWN TO MONEY AND
8/6/09 11:02:10 PERHAPS THE CRA AND THE TIFF
8/6/09 11:02:13 MIGHT HAVE MONEY TO
8/6/09 11:02:15 DO THIS.
8/6/09 11:02:18 >> FIRST OF ALL THE CRA
8/6/09 11:02:21 MONEY
8/6/09 11:02:24 IS
8/6/09 11:02:27 RESTRICTED FOR
8/6/09 11:02:33 , I'LL HAVE
8/6/09 11:02:34 TO
8/6/09 11:02:37 TAKE A LOOK AT SEE WHAT IS
8/6/09 11:02:38 ALLOWED BUT IT'S A SUGGESTION.
8/6/09 11:02:41 I JUST
8/6/09 11:02:44 DON'T KNOW THE
8/6/09 11:02:46 LEGAL
8/6/09 11:02:46 STANDPOINT.
8/6/09 11:02:48 THE ATTORNEY CAN LOOK AT THE
8/6/09 11:02:50 LEGAL RAMIFICATIONS AND MAKE A
8/6/09 11:02:50 REPORT BACK SEPTEMBER 3rd I
8/6/09 11:02:52 THINK TO GET TOGETHER AND COME
8/6/09 11:02:53 BACK WITH SOME KIND OF
8/6/09 11:02:56 RECOMMENDATION TO COUNCIL ON
8/6/09 11:02:59 THIS PARTICULAR ISSUE.
8/6/09 11:03:02 >> IF YOU COULD ADD THE PART
8/6/09 11:03:04 TO
8/6/09 11:03:05 THE MOTION --
8/6/09 11:03:06 >> WE'LL HAVE LEGAL LOOK AT
8/6/09 11:03:08 THAT AND SEE, THEN WE CAN TAKE
8/6/09 11:03:11 IT UP IN THE CRA MEETING,
8/6/09 11:03:11 COUNCIL.
8/6/09 11:03:13 >> I DID WAN TO SAY ONE THING
8/6/09 11:03:15 BECAUSE I THINK THESE PEOPLE
8/6/09 11:03:17 DID ALL OF THIS RESEARCH AND WE
8/6/09 11:03:20 DON'T NEED TO REINVENT
8/6/09 11:03:23 THE
8/6/09 11:03:25 WHEEL AND THE WHOLESALES PITCH
8/6/09 11:03:26 WAS TO VOLUNTEER AND THAT
8/6/09 11:03:27 DOESN'T COST ANY MONEY SO
8/6/09 11:03:29 BEFORE WE START INVESTIGATING
8/6/09 11:03:30 MORE POSSIBILITIES I THINK JUST
8/6/09 11:03:33 THE POLICE NEED TO GIVE US
8/6/09 11:03:36 A
8/6/09 11:03:39 REPORT ON
8/6/09 11:03:41 ADOPTING THAT PROGRAM.
8/6/09 11:03:44 >> IT DOES REQUIRE SOME LAW
8/6/09 11:03:46 ENFORCEMENT STAFF TIME --
8/6/09 11:03:47 >> CLERICAL --
8/6/09 11:03:48 >> WELL WHAT IT REQUIRES AT
8/6/09 11:03:50 LEAST THE WAY WE READ THE
8/6/09 11:03:51 AUTHORIZATION FOR LOOKING UP
8/6/09 11:03:53 THE TAG NUMBERS BECAUSE WHAT
8/6/09 11:03:57 WOULD BE REPORTED
8/6/09 11:03:57 TO THE
8/6/09 11:04:00 DEPARTMENT WOULD BE THE
8/6/09 11:04:00 MAKE,
8/6/09 11:04:02 MODEL AND CAR, THE TAG NUMBER,
8/6/09 11:04:02 THE DEPARTMENT AND STAFF WOULD
8/6/09 11:04:05 NEED TO BE DOING THAT AND THEN
8/6/09 11:04:05 THEY WOULD TRANSMIT THE
8/6/09 11:04:06 RELEVANT INFORMATION AS
8/6/09 11:04:08 APPROPRIATE TO THE VOLUNTEERS
8/6/09 11:04:11 SO THERE'S AN ELEMENT OF STAFF
8/6/09 11:04:12 TIME INVOLVED BECAUSE OF THE
8/6/09 11:04:15 CONSTRAINTS SO IT'S NOT
8/6/09 11:04:17 SUBSTANTIAL BUT IT'S NOT
8/6/09 11:04:20 ENTIRELY --JUST FOR
8/6/09 11:04:21 CLARIFICATION.
8/6/09 11:04:22 >> THAT'S THE ONE LEGAL
8/6/09 11:04:23 PROCEDURAL ISSUE WE DISCUSSED.
8/6/09 11:04:24 >> YES.
8/6/09 11:04:26 >> PERHAPS AS PART OF THIS
8/6/09 11:04:27 BECAUSE THAT'S KIND OF VAGUE
8/6/09 11:04:29 AND CLERICAL, WE COULD GET
8/6/09 11:04:30 SOME, WE COULD HAVE A
8/6/09 11:04:32 CONVERSATION WITH ST.
8/6/09 11:04:33 PETERSBURG TO FIND OUT HOW MUCH
8/6/09 11:04:35 TIME IT IS BECAUSE WHAT WAS
8/6/09 11:04:36 REPRESENTED TO COUNCIL IS
8/6/09 11:04:38 INITIALLY THERE WERE A NUMBER
8/6/09 11:04:41 OF COMPLAINTS AND AS THE
8/6/09 11:04:44 PROGRAM KICKED IN,
8/6/09 11:04:46 THE
8/6/09 11:04:46 COMPLAINTS WENT DOWN AND THAT
8/6/09 11:04:48 PROVED IT WAS WORKING AND
8/6/09 11:04:48 REQUIRED LESS TIME.
8/6/09 11:04:50 >> THAT MAY HAVE BEEN PRESENTED
8/6/09 11:04:51 TO COUNCIL PREVIOUSLY BUT THAT
8/6/09 11:04:53 WAS NOT CONSISTENT WITH WHAT
8/6/09 11:04:54 THE POLICE DEPARTMENT REPORTED

8/6/09 11:05:10 CITY

8/6/09 11:05:50 TO THE REQUEST OF COUNCIL I
8/6/09 11:05:51 HAVE BEEN PROVIDING WHAT THE
8/6/09 11:05:53 COLLECTIONS HAVE BEEN FOR THE
8/6/09 11:05:55 SPECIAL ASSESSMENT AND THE
8/6/09 11:05:56 BOARD AND LIENS FOR THE PAST

8/6/09 11:06:05 MONTHS THIS YEAR THE
8/6/09 11:06:08 CITY HAS
8/6/09 11:06:11 COLLECTED $58318.73

8/6/09 11:06:26 MONTH PERIOD AS COMPARED TO

8/6/09 11:06:44 A TOTAL OF
8/6/09 11:06:44 666302.73.
8/6/09 11:06:45 OBVIOUSLY WE HAVE HAD A
8/6/09 11:06:46 SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION DUE TO
8/6/09 11:06:48 THE STATE OF THE REAL ESTATE
8/6/09 11:06:50 MARKET AND THE NUMBER OF
8/6/09 11:06:52 FORECLOSE SHOWERS PGH
8/6/09 11:06:55 >> THANK YOU MR.
8/6/09 11:06:56 CHAIRMAN.
8/6/09 11:06:57 HONORABLE COLLEAGUES, THIS
8/6/09 11:06:59 PROBLEM HERE OF COLLECTION IS
8/6/09 11:07:01 NOT A PROBLEM OF COLLECTION,
8/6/09 11:07:04 IT'S A COLLECTION OF $77,000
8/6/09 11:07:07 AND WHAT HAPPENS IS THE
8/6/09 11:07:07 AREAS
8/6/09 11:07:09 BEING AFFECTED BY CODE
8/6/09 11:07:12 ENFORCEMENT AS FAR AS THE
8/6/09 11:07:15 MULTITUDE OF ENFORCEMENT
8/6/09 11:07:15 ISSUES
8/6/09 11:07:17 ARE REALLY YOU KNOW,
8/6/09 11:07:19 GEOGRAPHICALLY IN A
8/6/09 11:07:19 CONCENTRATED AREA.
8/6/09 11:07:20 THERE ARE CERTAIN AREAS OF THE
8/6/09 11:07:23 CITY THAT HAVE THEM BUT A MUCH
8/6/09 11:07:25 LOWER AREA.
8/6/09 11:07:27 THE ONES THAT ARE BEING BROUGHT
8/6/09 11:07:28 UP TO CODE ENFORCEMENT AND
8/6/09 11:07:31 RIGHTLY SO, HAVE A PROBLEM THAT
8/6/09 11:07:32 THEY WANT TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT
8/6/09 11:07:34 BUT THEY DON'T HAVE THE FUNDS
8/6/09 11:07:36 TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT WITH.
8/6/09 11:07:37 THIS MONEY NOW IS GOING INTO
8/6/09 11:07:40 THE GENERAL FUND AS I
8/6/09 11:07:40 UNDERSTAND IT.
8/6/09 11:07:43 I REALLY BELIEVE THAT THIS
8/6/09 11:07:45 ADMINISTRATION, THIS COUNCIL,
8/6/09 11:07:47 SHOULD WORK IN COOPERATION TO
8/6/09 11:07:50 FORM A FUND SO
8/6/09 11:07:52 THAT INSTEAD OF
8/6/09 11:07:55 FINING THE PEOPLE, 50, 60, OR
8/6/09 11:07:57 WHATEVER, $100 A DAY, THAT
8/6/09 11:07:58 WOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
8/6/09 11:07:59 LOAN THEM THE MONEY OUT OF THIS
8/6/09 11:07:59 FUND.
8/6/09 11:08:02 LET THEM DO THE REPAIRS AND
8/6/09 11:08:03 TAKE OUT A
8/6/09 11:08:05 LOAN, THIS IS NOT A GIVE AWAY,
8/6/09 11:08:08 I'M NOT FORGIVE AWAYS.
8/6/09 11:08:11 THIS IS
8/6/09 11:08:12 THE LOAN SO THAT
8/6/09 11:08:14 PROPERTY IS BROUGHT UP TO
8/6/09 11:08:15 STANDARDS IF THEY DON'T HAVE
8/6/09 11:08:16 ABILITY TO PESO IN A LOT OF
8/6/09 11:08:19 CASES THESE THINGS
8/6/09 11:08:20 ARE
8/6/09 11:08:21 HAPPENING WITH PEOPLE THAT
8/6/09 11:08:22 DON'T HAVE THE ABILITY TO PAY,
8/6/09 11:08:25 THEY DON'T HAVE THE ABILITY TO
8/6/09 11:08:26 BORROW THE MONEY.
8/6/09 11:08:28 THEY'RE OF AGE, SOME DON'T HAVE
8/6/09 11:08:31 A JOB, SOME, THEY HAVE A
8/6/09 11:08:31 PROBLEM.
8/6/09 11:08:33 SO, INSTEAD OF THESE PEOPLE AND
8/6/09 11:08:35 I HAVE HAD HARASSMENT IS NOT
8/6/09 11:08:36 THE RIGHT WORD, BEING ALL
8/6/09 11:08:37 NERVOUS AND ALL UPSET THAT
8/6/09 11:08:38 THEY'RE GOING TO LOSE THEIR
8/6/09 11:08:40 HOUSE, THAT THE HOUSE, IT'S NOT
8/6/09 11:08:40 TRUE.
8/6/09 11:08:42 THEY'RE NOT GOING TO LOSE THE
8/6/09 11:08:42 HOUSE.
8/6/09 11:08:44 THAT THEY WORK OUT A
8/6/09 11:08:46 LOAN, REVOLVING LOAN WITH THE
8/6/09 11:08:47 CITY, BASED ON THESE FIGURES
8/6/09 11:08:49 THAT ARE COLLECTED FROM THE
8/6/09 11:08:51 SAME DEPARTMENT, PUT BACK INTO
8/6/09 11:08:52 WORK SO THAT THESE INDIVIDUALS
8/6/09 11:08:55 CAN HAVE PEACE OF MIND AND
8/6/09 11:08:58 GUESS WHAT, THE
8/6/09 11:09:01 PROBLEM ENDS ON
8/6/09 11:09:04 THAT INDIVIDUAL'S HOME FOR SOME
8/6/09 11:09:04 PERIOD OF TIME.
8/6/09 11:09:07 I CAN'T GUARANTEE IT WILL BE
8/6/09 11:09:08 FOREVER BUT THE ISSUES ARE
8/6/09 11:09:09 SOLVED AND WE'RE NOT GOING
8/6/09 11:09:12 KNOCKING ON THE SAME DOOR EVERY
8/6/09 11:09:12 SIX MONTHS.
8/6/09 11:09:12 >> SECOND THAT MOTION.
8/6/09 11:09:15 >> THERE'S A SECOND AND I'D
8/6/09 11:09:18 LIKE TO
8/6/09 11:09:18 EXPLORE IT.
8/6/09 11:09:19 >> SECOND.
8/6/09 11:09:20 >> I WANT TO TALK ABOUT
8/6/09 11:09:22 SOMETHING ELSE, NOT ON THAT
8/6/09 11:09:23 PARTICULAR --
8/6/09 11:09:24 >> NO, NO.
8/6/09 11:09:25 >> CAN I --
8/6/09 11:09:26 >> YES.
8/6/09 11:09:26 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 11:09:29 I THINK THAT'S A VERY
8/6/09 11:09:32 INTERESTING IDEA AND MY
8/6/09 11:09:33 FEELING
8/6/09 11:09:34 IS THAT FOR INDIVIDUAL PROPERTY
8/6/09 11:09:36 OWNERS WHO ARE LACKING A
8/6/09 11:09:37 RESOURCE OR RESOURCES TO
8/6/09 11:09:39 ADDRESS THESE ISSUES, IT'S A
8/6/09 11:09:42 SUPER IDEA AND
8/6/09 11:09:42 THAT PERHAPS THE
8/6/09 11:09:43 EASIEST VEHICLE WOULD BE TO
8/6/09 11:09:46 WORK THROUGH AN
8/6/09 11:09:49 EXISTING THING,
8/6/09 11:09:52 SET UP LIKE SHIP WITH THE
8/6/09 11:09:54 CENTER FOR WOMEN THAT DOES
8/6/09 11:09:54 PARTICULARLY SENIOR REPAIRS.
8/6/09 11:09:57 MY CONCERN IS THAT THIS NOT
8/6/09 11:10:00 BE
8/6/09 11:10:03 EXTENDED TO LANDLORDS WHO ARE,
8/6/09 11:10:06 WHO ARE GUILTY OF THIS ON A
8/6/09 11:10:06 REPETITIVE BASIS.
8/6/09 11:10:08 >> I AGREE.
8/6/09 11:10:09 IT HAS TO BE A CERTAIN
8/6/09 11:10:09 CRITERIA.
8/6/09 11:10:10 IT HAS TO BE MET.
8/6/09 11:10:11 WE'RE NOT DISCUSSING THAT
8/6/09 11:10:13 TODAY, JUST THE IDEA.
8/6/09 11:10:15 IT'S SOMETHING THAT I HAVE SEEN
8/6/09 11:10:17 IN THE AREAS BECAUSE SOME OF US
8/6/09 11:10:19 REPRESENT THOSE AREAS THAT GET
8/6/09 11:10:21 THE MAJORITY OF CODE
8/6/09 11:10:23 ENFORCEMENT PROBLEMS AND IT HAS
8/6/09 11:10:25 TO BE RESOLVED AND JUST
8/6/09 11:10:26 KNOCKING ON THE SAME DOORS
8/6/09 11:10:27 AGAIN AND IT'S NOT RESOLVED TO
8/6/09 11:10:28 THE ISSUE OF SATISFACTION
8/6/09 11:10:29 BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE THE
8/6/09 11:10:29 MONEY.
8/6/09 11:10:31 THEY GET ALL NERVOUS, THEY END
8/6/09 11:10:32 UP IN THE HOSPITAL, COSTS US
8/6/09 11:10:35 MONEY BECAUSE THEY'RE IN THE
8/6/09 11:10:36 HOSPITAL, NOT ANYMORE.
8/6/09 11:10:39 >> MR. CHAIR, COUNCIL, ALTHOUGH
8/6/09 11:10:40 THIS CONDITION EXACTLY WHAT
8/6/09 11:10:42 YOU'RE SUGGESTING, I DO WANT TO
8/6/09 11:10:44 REMIND THE COUNCIL THAT THERE
8/6/09 11:10:47 IS THE DIVERSION PROGRAM THAT
8/6/09 11:10:48 IS BEING ADMINISTERED BY
8/6/09 11:10:51 COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT THAT
8/6/09 11:10:51 IS
8/6/09 11:10:53 PROVIDING LOANS TO PEOPLE WHO
8/6/09 11:10:56 QUALIFY AND I THINK ARE
8/6/09 11:10:59 ADDRESSING THOSE PEOPLE
8/6/09 11:11:00 THAT
8/6/09 11:11:01 YOU COUNCIL MEMBER LINDA SAUL-
8/6/09 11:11:02 SENA WERE CONCERNED ABOUT --
8/6/09 11:11:03 >> GOOD.
8/6/09 11:11:06 >> I JUST WANT TODAY REMIND YOU
8/6/09 11:11:06 --
8/6/09 11:11:07 >> DO WE HAVE --
8/6/09 11:11:08 >> GO AHEAD.
8/6/09 11:11:09 >> WOULD DOVE A REFERENCE OF
8/6/09 11:11:10 HOW MANY CASE RESPECT HANDLED
8/6/09 11:11:12 OR SOLVED BY THIS PROGRAM YOU
8/6/09 11:11:12 JUST MENTIONED?
8/6/09 11:11:13 >> I DON'T HAVE NUMBERS BUT I
8/6/09 11:11:14 DO KNOW THEY HAVE A
8/6/09 11:11:16 REPRESENTATIVE THAT SHOWS UP
8/6/09 11:11:17 WITH CODE ENFORCEMENT BOARD AND
8/6/09 11:11:20 IF IT LOOKS LIKE THERE'S A
8/6/09 11:11:21 CANDIDATE THEY'LL CERTAINLY GO
8/6/09 11:11:22 TALK TO THEM.
8/6/09 11:11:23 THE CASES WILL GET REIMAGINED
8/6/09 11:11:24 BACK SO THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY
8/6/09 11:11:26 TO WORK WITH THAT PERSON.
8/6/09 11:11:27 I WOULD YOU KNOW I CAN'T SPEAK
8/6/09 11:11:29 FOR THE DEPARTMENT AS TO WHAT
8/6/09 11:11:32 THE NUMBERS ARE BUT --
8/6/09 11:11:33 >> I REMEMBER THAT COMING
8/6/09 11:11:34 BEFORE US BEFORE I THOUGHT
8/6/09 11:11:36 THERE WAS AN ISSUE RELATIVE TO
8/6/09 11:11:38 THE DIVERSION PROGRAMS, THE
8/6/09 11:11:41 LAST TIME, THAT WAS SOME
8/6/09 11:11:42 ISSUE
8/6/09 11:11:44 RELATED TO THAT.
8/6/09 11:11:47 I THINK IT'S AN
8/6/09 11:11:49 EXCELLENT IDEA
8/6/09 11:11:51 MR. MIRANDA AND LOOK AT THE
8/6/09 11:11:51 DIVERSION PROGRAM AND BRING
8/6/09 11:11:53 BACK A REPORT AND TELL US WHAT
8/6/09 11:11:54 IS GOING ON THERE.
8/6/09 11:11:57 HOW MANY PEOPLE QUALIFY YOU
8/6/09 11:11:58 KNOW, GIVE US INFORMATION, GIVE
8/6/09 11:11:59 US A REPORT ON THAT SO THEN WE
8/6/09 11:12:02 CAN LOOK AT IT, SEE WHETHER
8/6/09 11:12:03 THAT PROGRAM IS EFFECTIVE OR
8/6/09 11:12:06 WHETHER WE NEED TO IMPLEMENT
8/6/09 11:12:07 WHAT COUNCILMAN MIRANDA
8/6/09 11:12:07 RECOMMENDED.
8/6/09 11:12:08 IN THE MEANTIME YOU ALL CAN
8/6/09 11:12:10 LOOK AT THAT FROM A LEGAL
8/6/09 11:12:12 STANDPOINT TO SEE IF WE CAN DO
8/6/09 11:12:12 THAT.
8/6/09 11:12:15 >> JUST SO I'M CLEAR, THE
8/6/09 11:12:18 MOTION IS TO REPORT BACK ON THE
8/6/09 11:12:19 DIVERSE PROGRAM.
8/6/09 11:12:21 I DO NOT KNOW PERSONALLY IF
8/6/09 11:12:23 CITY FUNDS ARE USED OR IF WE
8/6/09 11:12:26 ARE REFERRING THEM TO OTHER
8/6/09 11:12:28 NONPROFITS OF THE TYPE THAT
8/6/09 11:12:29 WE'RE DISCUSSING.
8/6/09 11:12:30 THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING ELSE WE
8/6/09 11:12:31 CAN REPORT BACK ON AND THEN IN
8/6/09 11:12:34 ADDITION IF WE'RE NOT USING
8/6/09 11:12:36 CITY FUNDS IF THE CODE
8/6/09 11:12:36 ENFORCEMENT PROCEEDS COULD BE
8/6/09 11:12:39 USED TO SET UP THE CITY
8/6/09 11:12:40 FUND.
8/6/09 11:12:42 >> CHAIRMAN, IF I MAY INDULGE,
8/6/09 11:12:45 I DON'T WANT SOMEONE TO SAY
8/6/09 11:12:46 THEY HAVE $50,000.
8/6/09 11:12:48 NO, THERE WILL BE A CAP OF
8/6/09 11:12:49 MINIMUM AMOUNT TO DO WHAT IS
8/6/09 11:12:49 NECESSARY.
8/6/09 11:12:51 MOST OF THE CASES ARE NOT CASES
8/6/09 11:12:54 OF TENS OF THOUSANDS
8/6/09 11:12:55 OF
8/6/09 11:12:55 DOLLARS.
8/6/09 11:12:56 THEY'RE PAYING, PAINTING A
8/6/09 11:12:57 FENCE, HALF A HOUSE, MOWING THE
8/6/09 11:13:00 LAWN, SOMETHING THAT IS A SMALL
8/6/09 11:13:03 AMOUNT AND TO, INTO SOME AREAS
8/6/09 11:13:04 PGH
8/6/09 11:13:05 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 11:13:07 >> IF I COULD ASK ONE MORE
8/6/09 11:13:10 THING, AS CAN YOU SEE AND AS I
8/6/09 11:13:12 INDICATED, THE REPORT REALLY
8/6/09 11:13:14 DOESN'T REPORT ANYMORE OF WHAT
8/6/09 11:13:15 THIS IS BECAUSE WE HAD
8/6/09 11:13:16 COMPLETED THAT BUT IT'S JUST
8/6/09 11:13:18 KIND OF KEEPING STAYING ON
8/6/09 11:13:19 THERE, WONDERING IF I COULD
8/6/09 11:13:21 SUGGEST WE MAYBE REMOVE THIS
8/6/09 11:13:23 ITEM OR YOU KNOW AT LEAST
8/6/09 11:13:24 CHANGE THE MOTION TOWARDS
8/6/09 11:13:27 ACTUALLY WHAT I'M REPORTING BUT
8/6/09 11:13:28 WHAT I WOULD PREFER IF WE COULD
8/6/09 11:13:31 GET THIS OFF SO IT DOESN'T KEEP
8/6/09 11:13:32 COMING UP, AND GIVING SOMETHING
8/6/09 11:13:36 IN 3 MONTHS THAT WOULD STILL
8/6/09 11:13:36 BE
8/6/09 11:13:36 DIFFERENT.
8/6/09 11:13:37 >> THE NEXT QUARTER REPORT
8/6/09 11:13:39 WOULD BE NOVEMBER, RIGHT?
8/6/09 11:13:40 I MEAN MAYBE IT MAY TAKE
8/6/09 11:13:42 SOMETIME TO GET ALL OF THIS
8/6/09 11:13:42 INFORMATION.
8/6/09 11:13:44 I'M NOT OPPOSED TO HAVING IT IN
8/6/09 11:13:46 NOVEMBER, BRING IT MORE, A MORE
8/6/09 11:13:48 INFORMED REPORT ON HOW MANY,
8/6/09 11:13:49 THIS LADY, I DON'T KNOW HER
8/6/09 11:13:51 NAME, THAT WAS MENTIONED, HAS
8/6/09 11:13:51 DONE.
8/6/09 11:13:53 WHERE THE MONEY COMES FROM.
8/6/09 11:13:56 IS IT CITY MONEY,
8/6/09 11:13:57 501C3 FUNDS,
8/6/09 11:13:58 I DON'T KNOW.
8/6/09 11:13:59 >> MAY THE SUGGESTION BE THEN
8/6/09 11:14:01 TO REMOVE THIS ITEM AS A
8/6/09 11:14:02 RECURRING ITEM AND THEN TO
8/6/09 11:14:04 BRING BACK THE OTHER ITEM IN
8/6/09 11:14:04 NOVEMBER?
8/6/09 11:14:05 >> I WOULD AGREE.
8/6/09 11:14:08 >> WHY DON'T WE DEAL WITH THE
8/6/09 11:14:11 MOTION ON THE FLOOR THEN COME
8/6/09 11:14:11 BACK.
8/6/09 11:14:13 THE SECOND MOTION.
8/6/09 11:14:14 THE MOTION MOVED.
8/6/09 11:14:17 ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE.
8/6/09 11:14:17 >> AYE.
8/6/09 11:14:19 >> MOTION TO REMOVE AS A
8/6/09 11:14:20 RECURRING ITEM.
8/6/09 11:14:22 >> I MAKE THAT MOTION TO REMOVE
8/6/09 11:14:23 THIS ITEM PGH
8/6/09 11:14:26 >> BRING IT BACK NOVEMBER
8/6/09 11:14:28 5th.
8/6/09 11:14:29 >> RIGHT.
8/6/09 11:14:29 >> SECOND.
8/6/09 11:14:31 >> YOU WANTED TO ADD SOMETHING
8/6/09 11:14:32 TO THAT?
8/6/09 11:14:34 >> NO I THINK IT'S ALL
8/6/09 11:14:34 INCLUSIVE.
8/6/09 11:14:37 I THOUGHT IT WAS PRETTY CLEAR.
8/6/09 11:14:38 >> SO THEN WE'RE REMOVING THIS
8/6/09 11:14:39 ITEM AS A RECURRING ITEM.
8/6/09 11:14:40 >> RIGHT.

8/6/09 11:15:08 NEXT TO THAT THERE'S A VACANT
8/6/09 11:15:09 PIECE OF LAND.
8/6/09 11:15:12 I GOT A CALL THAT THEY CUT THE
8/6/09 11:15:13 GRASS THERE THIS PAST WEEK AND
8/6/09 11:15:14 EVIDENTLY SOMEBODY WAS SLEEPING

8/6/09 11:15:20 DIDN'T
8/6/09 11:15:22 CUT THERE WHAT ARE WE GOING TO

8/6/09 11:15:54 MORNING
8/6/09 11:15:54 COUNCIL.
8/6/09 11:15:57 DAVID LAWN, DIRECTOR
8/6/09 11:15:57 OF
8/6/09 11:15:57 CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION.
8/6/09 11:15:59 IN PREVIOUS DISCUSSIONS WITH
8/6/09 11:16:02 YOU I HAVE PRESENTED
8/6/09 11:16:02 INFORMATION ABOUT THREE
8/6/09 11:16:04 INITIATIVES THAT WERE GETTING
8/6/09 11:16:07 UNDERWAY RELATIVE TO
8/6/09 11:16:08 ALTERNATIVE ENERGY AND
8/6/09 11:16:10 PARTICULAR RELATIONSHIP TO
8/6/09 11:16:11 SOLAR ENERGY IN TERMS OF
8/6/09 11:16:12 PROJECTS THAT MIGHT BE
8/6/09 11:16:12 DEVELOPED.
8/6/09 11:16:15 I WANT TO UPDATE YOU
8/6/09 11:16:18 ON
8/6/09 11:16:21 THEM
8/6/09 11:16:21 TODAY.
8/6/09 11:16:22 AND A COUPLE THINGS YOU'LL SEE
8/6/09 11:16:23 EMERGE FROM THIS REPORT.
8/6/09 11:16:25 ONE IS ALL THREE OF THE
8/6/09 11:16:27 PROGRAMS ARE MOVING FORWARD AND
8/6/09 11:16:29 I HAVE SOME SPECIFICS TO SHARE
8/6/09 11:16:31 WITH YOU AND THAT NONE OF THESE
8/6/09 11:16:34 PROGRAMS ARE QUICK FIXES.
8/6/09 11:16:35 THEY'RE NOT INSTANT PROGRAMS
8/6/09 11:16:38 BUT AND THAT'S BY DESIGN TO TRY
8/6/09 11:16:39 TO IDENTIFY THE MOST PRODUCTIVE
8/6/09 11:16:41 AND EFFICIENT PROJECTS THAT WE
8/6/09 11:16:41 CAN.
8/6/09 11:16:43 WHAT I'D LIKE TO DO IS GIVE YOU
8/6/09 11:16:45 AN OVERVIEW OF THOSE THREE
8/6/09 11:16:46 PROGRAMS AND THEN BE HAPPY TO
8/6/09 11:16:48 ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU
8/6/09 11:16:48 HAVE.
8/6/09 11:16:51 THE FIRST ONE OF THOSE RELATES
8/6/09 11:16:52 TO ENERGY PERFORMANCE
8/6/09 11:16:52 CONTRACTING.
8/6/09 11:16:55 THIS OF COURSE IS THE
8/6/09 11:16:55 PROCESS
8/6/09 11:16:57 BY WHICH YOU SELECT A
8/6/09 11:17:00 CONTRACTOR KNOWN AS ANESCO WHO
8/6/09 11:17:01 REVIEWS THE FACILITIES, COMES
8/6/09 11:17:02 BACK AND PROPOSES THINGS THEY
8/6/09 11:17:05 CAN DO
8/6/09 11:17:06 TO PRODUCE ENERGY
8/6/09 11:17:07 SAVINGS AND A PLAN WHERE THOSE
8/6/09 11:17:10 SAVINGS CAN FINANCE AND
8/6/09 11:17:11 PERFORM
8/6/09 11:17:11 IMPROVEMENTS.
8/6/09 11:17:14 CITY HAS IDENTIFIED OVER 500
8/6/09 11:17:15 LOCATIONS THAT WE INTEND TO
8/6/09 11:17:18 HAVE THEM LOOK AT AS
8/6/09 11:17:19 POTENTIAL
8/6/09 11:17:21 CANDIDATES FOR THE PROGRAM.
8/6/09 11:17:23 IN PREPARATION WE HAVE
8/6/09 11:17:26 PERFORMED ENERGY AUDITS ON 99.9
8/6/09 11:17:29 PERCENT OF THOSE IN ONE OR TWO
8/6/09 11:17:30 PLACES BUT WE HAVE THE
8/6/09 11:17:31 EMERGENCY AUDITS AVAILABLE SO
8/6/09 11:17:32 WHEN IT'S SELECTED WE DON'T
8/6/09 11:17:33 HAVE TO WAIT FOR THEM TO DO
8/6/09 11:17:33 THAT.
8/6/09 11:17:36 WE CAN START
8/6/09 11:17:37 RIGHT AWAY.
8/6/09 11:17:40 THIS PROGRAM IS DEFINED
8/6/09 11:17:41 AND
8/6/09 11:17:42 MANDATED, OR THE REQUIREMENTS
8/6/09 11:17:45 ARE MANDATED IN STATE STATUTE
8/6/09 11:17:46 489.
8/6/09 11:17:48 THAT LANGUAGE WAS MODIFIED LAST
8/6/09 11:17:50 YEAR TO ALLOW ALTERNATIVE
8/6/09 11:17:52 ENERGY OPTIONS THAT EITHER
8/6/09 11:17:53 WEREN'T AVAILABLE OR WEREN'T
8/6/09 11:17:55 ALLOWED PREVIOUSLY IN THE
8/6/09 11:17:55 STATUTE.
8/6/09 11:17:58 ADDITIONALLY, THE STATE HAS A
8/6/09 11:18:00 PROGRAM IN PLACE THAT
8/6/09 11:18:01 MUNICIPALITIES AT THEIR OPTION
8/6/09 11:18:01 CAN USE.
8/6/09 11:18:03 WE HAVE BEEN REVIEWING THAT
8/6/09 11:18:04 PROGRAM WITH LEGAL AND WITH
8/6/09 11:18:05 STAFF AND DETERMINED THAT IS
8/6/09 11:18:08 THE DIRECTION THAT WE WANT TO
8/6/09 11:18:09 GO.
8/6/09 11:18:10 WHAT BENEFITS THAT IT BRINGS TO
8/6/09 11:18:12 US IS THAT IT HAS SOME PRE
8/6/09 11:18:14 ESTABLISHED CONTRACT LANGUAGE
8/6/09 11:18:17 THAT WE CAN USE THAT
8/6/09 11:18:18 UPON
8/6/09 11:18:19 REVIEW DOESN'T ADD UNNECESSARY
8/6/09 11:18:20 STEPS TO US BECAUSE WE'RE A
8/6/09 11:18:23 MUNICIPALITY INSTEAD OF A STATE
8/6/09 11:18:24 BUT ALSO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE
8/6/09 11:18:26 IN CONFORMANCE WITH THE
8/6/09 11:18:26 STATUTE.
8/6/09 11:18:29 THE OTHER THING THAT IT DOES IS
8/6/09 11:18:32 IT HAS A POOL OF 10
8/6/09 11:18:33 PRE
8/6/09 11:18:35 APPROVED ESCO PROVIDERS THAT
8/6/09 11:18:36 THEY HAVE REVIEWED AND HAVE
8/6/09 11:18:39 CERTIFIED, CAN PROVIDE THE
8/6/09 11:18:42 SERVICES REQUIRED UNDER
8/6/09 11:18:45 THIS
8/6/09 11:18:45 PROGRAM.
8/6/09 11:18:48 WE'RE CURRENTLY, WHAT WE'RE
8/6/09 11:18:50 DOING CURRENTLY, THE ULTIMATE
8/6/09 11:18:52 SELECTION IS A STATE STATUTE
8/6/09 11:18:56 287 ITEM AS YOU KNOW IS A
8/6/09 11:18:56 CCNA
8/6/09 11:18:56 KIND OF SELECTION.
8/6/09 11:18:58 WE HAVE INITIATED THAT PROCESS
8/6/09 11:18:59 AND WE'RE REVIEWING THE
8/6/09 11:19:02 QUALIFICATIONS OF THESE
8/6/09 11:19:03 PROVIDERS AND WE ANTICIPATE IN
8/6/09 11:19:06 SEPTEMBER DELIVERING TO THE
8/6/09 11:19:06 CCNA COMMITTEE THE
8/6/09 11:19:07 RECOMMENDATION OF THE THREE
8/6/09 11:19:10 SHORT LISTED FIRMS THAT SHOULD
8/6/09 11:19:11 BE INTERVIEWED FOR SELECTION.
8/6/09 11:19:13 OF COURSE ULTIMATELY THIS THAT
8/6/09 11:19:15 PROCESS, THE COMMITTEE'S
8/6/09 11:19:16 RECOMMENDATION GOES TO THE
8/6/09 11:19:18 MAYOR FOR HER ULTIMATE
8/6/09 11:19:18 SELECTION.
8/6/09 11:19:20 SECOND THING THAT IS UNDERWAY
8/6/09 11:19:20 --
8/6/09 11:19:23 >> THEN COUNCIL FOR
8/6/09 11:19:24 THE
8/6/09 11:19:24 ULTIMATE APPROVAL.
8/6/09 11:19:27 >> ANY CONTRACT THAT
8/6/09 11:19:28 IS
8/6/09 11:19:29 PRODUCED FROM THE SELECTION OF
8/6/09 11:19:31 THE FIRM IS THE MAYOR'S
8/6/09 11:19:31 SELECTION.
8/6/09 11:19:32 ANY CONTRACT THAT DEVELOPS OUT
8/6/09 11:19:34 OF THAT PROCESS COMES TO
8/6/09 11:19:35 COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL.
8/6/09 11:19:38 >> GOING THROUGH ALL OF
8/6/09 11:19:41 THE
8/6/09 11:19:41 STEPS.
8/6/09 11:19:42 >> YES OKAY?
8/6/09 11:19:45 THE SECOND, THE SECOND
8/6/09 11:19:49 INITIATIVE THAT'S UNDERWAY IS
8/6/09 11:19:52 WE ARE IN THE FINAL
8/6/09 11:19:52 STAGES OF
8/6/09 11:19:53 PREPARING A REQUEST RELATED TO
8/6/09 11:19:55 ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROJECTS AND
8/6/09 11:19:57 ALTERNATIVE ENERGY KINDS OF
8/6/09 11:19:58 SOLUTIONS.
8/6/09 11:19:59 WE HAVE DESIGNED THIS TO DEAL
8/6/09 11:20:01 WITH A COUPLE THINGS THAT WE'RE
8/6/09 11:20:02 FACED WITH.
8/6/09 11:20:02 ONE IS --
8/6/09 11:20:04 >> COULD I ASK A QUESTION ON
8/6/09 11:20:05 THE FIRST PROGRAM?
8/6/09 11:20:05 >> YES.
8/6/09 11:20:08 >> BEFORE WE
8/6/09 11:20:10 MOVE TO THE NEXT.
8/6/09 11:20:10 >> YES.
8/6/09 11:20:11 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 11:20:14 WHEN YOU SELECT ONE OF
8/6/09 11:20:14 THOSE
8/6/09 11:20:17 COMPANIES, THE ACRONYM WHAT WAS
8/6/09 11:20:17 IT.
8/6/09 11:20:17 >> ESCO.
8/6/09 11:20:19 >> ONE OF THOSE COMPANIES, IS
8/6/09 11:20:22 THE IDEA THEY COME
8/6/09 11:20:23 IN WITH
8/6/09 11:20:25 CAPITAL AND MAKE SOME OF YOUR
8/6/09 11:20:26 IMPROVEMENTS THEN THEY SHARE IN
8/6/09 11:20:27 THE SAVINGS DOWN THE ROAD.
8/6/09 11:20:30 IS THAT THE GENERAL IDEA?
8/6/09 11:20:31 >> YES, THE FINANCING, THERE
8/6/09 11:20:33 ARE VARIETIES IN THE FINANCING
8/6/09 11:20:36 MECHANISM FROM THEIR OWN
8/6/09 11:20:39 CAPITAL TO THIRD PARTY
8/6/09 11:20:39 FINANCING BUT BASICALLY WHAT
8/6/09 11:20:42 YOU DESCRIBED IS HOW IT WORKS.
8/6/09 11:20:45 >> SO WHEN YOU NARROW IT DOWN
8/6/09 11:20:48 TO THE SHORT LIST, AT THAT
8/6/09 11:20:49 POINT WILL THEY MAKE
8/6/09 11:20:50 PRESENTATION, EACH OF THOSE
8/6/09 11:20:53 THREE ON THE SHORT LIST
8/6/09 11:20:54 MAKE
8/6/09 11:20:57 THE PRESENTATION TO YOUR GROUP
8/6/09 11:20:58 SPECIFICALLY OR MAYBE NOT REAL
8/6/09 11:20:59 SPECIFICALLY BUT SORT OF I
8/6/09 11:21:01 DON'T KNOW, HOW WILL THAT WORK
8/6/09 11:21:04 IN TERMS OF GETTING
8/6/09 11:21:05 FROM THOSE
8/6/09 11:21:07 THREE DOWN TO ONE AND TAKE IT
8/6/09 11:21:08 TO THE MAYOR.
8/6/09 11:21:09 >> OKAY.
8/6/09 11:21:11 IT'S THE TYPICAL PROCESS WE USE
8/6/09 11:21:14 FOR MAJOR PROJECTS WHERE
8/6/09 11:21:17 STAFF
8/6/09 11:21:20 MAKES A SHORT LIST
8/6/09 11:21:23 RECOMMENDATION, THE COMMITTEE
8/6/09 11:21:24 WHAT LISTENS TO THE
8/6/09 11:21:25 PRESENTATIONS AND MAKE A
8/6/09 11:21:26 RECOMMENDATION TO THE MAYOR.
8/6/09 11:21:28 >> BUT THE PRESENTATIONS WILL
8/6/09 11:21:30 THEY BE PROJECT SPECIFIC, WILL
8/6/09 11:21:31 THEY HAVE ALREADY LOOKED AT
8/6/09 11:21:34 LET'S SAY THE 10 BUILDINGS THAT
8/6/09 11:21:37 HAD THE
8/6/09 11:21:39 GREATEST OPPORTUNITY OR
8/6/09 11:21:40 BE MORE GENERIC.
8/6/09 11:21:40 >> WE'LL MAKE AVAILABLE TO THEM
8/6/09 11:21:42 THE INFORMATION WE HAVE TO THE
8/6/09 11:21:44 EXTENT THEY WANT TO INCORPORATE
8/6/09 11:21:46 INTO THE PRESENTATION, THINGS
8/6/09 11:21:49 THAT THEY SEE AS OPPORTUNITIES,
8/6/09 11:21:51 TYPICALLY FIRMS DO THAT BUT THE
8/6/09 11:21:51 PRESENTATIONS WILL INCLUDE WHAT
8/6/09 11:21:52 THEY HAVE DONE IN THE PAST, HOW
8/6/09 11:21:55 THEY DO THE PROCESS AND THIS
8/6/09 11:21:56 PARTICULAR CASE WHAT SORT OF
8/6/09 11:21:58 FINANCIAL RESOURCES THEY MIGHT
8/6/09 11:22:01 BRING TO
8/6/09 11:22:03 THE TABLE WHETHER
8/6/09 11:22:04 THEY'RE LOOKING AT SELF FUNDING
8/6/09 11:22:07 OR THIRD PARTY OR WHATEVER.
8/6/09 11:22:10 >> YOU MENTIONED
8/6/09 11:22:13 THE TERM THAT
8/6/09 11:22:16 UNDER
8/6/09 11:22:18 THE AMENDED STATUTE
8/6/09 11:22:19 THERE'S NEW OPPORTUNITIES, THE
8/6/09 11:22:20 ENERGY AND HOW IT RELATES TO
8/6/09 11:22:20 THE CITY.
8/6/09 11:22:23 CAN YOU VERY QUICKLY HIT
8/6/09 11:22:25 SOME
8/6/09 11:22:26 OF THOSE?
8/6/09 11:22:27 >> IN THE PREVIOUS STATUTE IT
8/6/09 11:22:29 WAS PRETTY WELL LIMIT TODAY
8/6/09 11:22:30 CONVENTIONAL ELECTRICITY.
8/6/09 11:22:33 THE LANGUAGE OF THE STATUTE NOW
8/6/09 11:22:36 HAS BEEN
8/6/09 11:22:39 EXPANDED
8/6/09 11:22:40 SUCH THAT
8/6/09 11:22:41 THAT SOLAR OR OTHER THINGS ARE
8/6/09 11:22:42 BROUGHT TO THE TABLE.
8/6/09 11:22:44 THE TRICK IS HOW THEY CAN BRING
8/6/09 11:22:45 THOSE RESOURCES TO THE TABLE IN
8/6/09 11:22:48 A
8/6/09 11:22:49 WAY THAT PRODUCES SAVINGS AND
8/6/09 11:22:50 PAYS FOR ITSELF.
8/6/09 11:22:52 YOU'LL HEAR A LITTLE MORE OF
8/6/09 11:22:52 THAT LATER.
8/6/09 11:22:53 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 11:22:54 >> I'M SORRY, I JUST MISSED --
8/6/09 11:22:56 I WAS WATCHING MOST BUT I
8/6/09 11:22:57 MISSED THE VERY BEGINNING WHEN
8/6/09 11:23:00 YOU WERE TALKING
8/6/09 11:23:03 ABOUT
8/6/09 11:23:06 THAT
8/6/09 11:23:08 FIRST PROGRAM --
8/6/09 11:23:09 >> WE'RE STILL ON THAT.
8/6/09 11:23:10 >> YOU'RE STILL TALKING ABOUT
8/6/09 11:23:11 THE SAME THING?
8/6/09 11:23:12 I THOUGHT YOU WERE ON THE
8/6/09 11:23:12 SECOND.
8/6/09 11:23:13 THIS IS THE PERFORMANCE
8/6/09 11:23:16 CONTRACT FOR WHAT, TO
8/6/09 11:23:19 DO WHAT?
8/6/09 11:23:20 THAT'S MY QUESTION.
8/6/09 11:23:21 THAT'S WHAT I MEANT.
8/6/09 11:23:22 >> PREVIOUSLY I HAVE INDICATED
8/6/09 11:23:24 THE CITY IDENTIFIED
8/6/09 11:23:25 APPROXIMATELY 500 OF ITS
8/6/09 11:23:28 STRUCTURES THAT WE WOULD PUT
8/6/09 11:23:31 INTO THE
8/6/09 11:23:32 PROGRAM AND HAVE THESE
8/6/09 11:23:32 OPPORTUNITIES --
8/6/09 11:23:35 >> OPPORTUNITIES
8/6/09 11:23:37 FOR WHAT.
8/6/09 11:23:37 >> OKAY.
8/6/09 11:23:39 FOR ENERGY, FOUR ENERGY SAVING
8/6/09 11:23:40 PROJECTS THAT WOULD PRODUCE
8/6/09 11:23:43 SAVINGS THAT WOULD PAY FOR THE
8/6/09 11:23:46 IMPROVEMENTS WHICH IS
8/6/09 11:23:48 WHAT THE
8/6/09 11:23:51 PROGRAM IS ABOUT.
8/6/09 11:23:53 >> WHAT TIME FRAME 10 YEARS, 30
8/6/09 11:23:53 YEARS?
8/6/09 11:23:56 >> THE STATUTE ALLOWS I BELIEVE
8/6/09 11:23:59 UP TO 20 YEAR
8/6/09 11:24:02 PAY PACKS SO IT
8/6/09 11:24:03 COULD, IT COULD COVER BOTH
8/6/09 11:24:06 MINOR STUFF ALL THE WAY UP TO
8/6/09 11:24:07 FAIRLY MAJOR FROM JEFF EXTOR.
8/6/09 11:24:10 >> ARE YOU LOOKING AT THAT TIME
8/6/09 11:24:11 FRAME?
8/6/09 11:24:13 >> WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT
8/6/09 11:24:15 ANYTHING THEY CAN BRING TO US
8/6/09 11:24:17 THAT WILL PAY FOR ITSELF AND
8/6/09 11:24:19 PROVIDE A BENEFICIAL PROJECT TO
8/6/09 11:24:19 US.
8/6/09 11:24:21 >> BUT PAY FOR ITSELF IN FIVE
8/6/09 11:24:22 YEARS IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN
8/6/09 11:24:23 PAYING FOR ITSELF IN 20 YEARS
8/6/09 11:24:25 AND I ASSUME YOU'RE ESCALATING
8/6/09 11:24:27 THE UTILITY COSTS BASED ON THE
8/6/09 11:24:30 APPROVALS OF THE PFC HAS DONE
8/6/09 11:24:32 RECENTLY WITH ALLOWING THE
8/6/09 11:24:35 LOCAL UTILITY TO GO UP PRETTY
8/6/09 11:24:37 QUICKLY.
8/6/09 11:24:40 >> WHAT WE'RE DOING IS IF
8/6/09 11:24:42 SOMEBODY HAS A PROJECT THAT
8/6/09 11:24:43 WILL PAY FOR ITSELF IN FIVE
8/6/09 11:24:44 YEARS WE'RE NOT GOING TO SAY NO
8/6/09 11:24:47 YOU HAVE TO TAKE 20 YEARS TO
8/6/09 11:24:47 PAY US BACK.
8/6/09 11:24:49 ALL I'M SAYING IS THE MAXIMUM
8/6/09 11:24:51 WE CAN LOOK AT IS 20 YEARS.
8/6/09 11:24:52 ANYTHING LESS THAN THAT THAT WE
8/6/09 11:24:55 CAN MAKE WORK IS FAIR GAME
8/6/09 11:24:56 AND
8/6/09 11:24:59 WE'RE
8/6/09 11:25:01 INTERESTED IN.
8/6/09 11:25:03 >>
8/6/09 11:25:04 >> HE ANSWERED MY QUESTION.
8/6/09 11:25:06 I'M SORRY I MISSED THE
8/6/09 11:25:06 BEGINNING.
8/6/09 11:25:08 >> WE'RE TALKING ABOUT MAKING A
8/6/09 11:25:10 CONTRACT WITH FIRM A, B OR C,
8/6/09 11:25:11 WHATEVER, AND THEY PUT UP THE
8/6/09 11:25:13 MONEY TO FUND THE PROJECT THEN
8/6/09 11:25:16 THEY CONTINUE TO GET A
8/6/09 11:25:19 CERTAIN
8/6/09 11:25:25 PER CENT AND ONLY TO PAY FOR IT
8/6/09 11:25:26 WITH MONEY FROM THEIR OWN
8/6/09 11:25:26 COMPANY.
8/6/09 11:25:26 >> CORRECT.
8/6/09 11:25:28 >> I WOULD NEVER DO THAT AS A
8/6/09 11:25:30 PRIVATE CITIZEN IN MY OWN
8/6/09 11:25:30 HOUSE.
8/6/09 11:25:31 I'D RATHER BORROW THE MONEY --
8/6/09 11:25:34 LET ME TELL
8/6/09 11:25:35 YOU WHY.
8/6/09 11:25:37 THE SOLAR INDUSTRY IS GOING TO
8/6/09 11:25:40 BECOME JUST LIKE THE
8/6/09 11:25:40 COMPUTER
8/6/09 11:25:40 INDUSTRY.
8/6/09 11:25:42 IT'S IN THE STAGE OF GETTING TO
8/6/09 11:25:44 WHERE IT'S GOING TO BE AND IT
8/6/09 11:25:47 WILL CHANGE SO QUICKLY AND SO
8/6/09 11:25:49 RAPIDLY THAT WHEN YOU PUT THE
8/6/09 11:25:52 CELL UNIT UP, THE NEXT TWO
8/6/09 11:25:53 YEARS IT'S OBSOLETE.
8/6/09 11:25:56 THERE'S SOMETHING MUCH QUICKER
8/6/09 11:25:59 AND FASTER, PRODUCES MORE
8/6/09 11:26:00 ELECTRICITY WITHOUT ANY HEAT.
8/6/09 11:26:02 JUST LAST NIGHT I SAW A PROGRAM
8/6/09 11:26:04 ON HOW IT'S MADE AND IT WAS
8/6/09 11:26:07 ABOUT A COMPANY
8/6/09 11:26:09 CALLED EAST
8/6/09 11:26:09 SOLAR.
8/6/09 11:26:10 I DIDN'T WRITE IT ALL DOWN.
8/6/09 11:26:13 I DID LEAVE MYSELF A MESSAGE ON
8/6/09 11:26:13 THE PHONE.
8/6/09 11:26:16 EACH WORKED OUT SOME TYPE OF
8/6/09 11:26:19 SOLAR PANEL I GUESS AND MANY
8/6/09 11:26:22 ACRES THAT PRODUCES THE ENERGY
8/6/09 11:26:25 AT THE SAME RATE OF
8/6/09 11:26:27 COST OF
8/6/09 11:26:27 FOSSIL FUEL.
8/6/09 11:26:30 WHETHER IT'S WORKABLE OR NOT
8/6/09 11:26:33 I
8/6/09 11:26:34 REALLY DON'T KNOW.
8/6/09 11:26:35 I ENVISION WHERE THE ROOF, HOOD
8/6/09 11:26:36 AND TRUCK GIVES YOU THE ENERGY
8/6/09 11:26:38 TO RUN THE CAR AND YOU WON'T
8/6/09 11:26:41 KNOW IT'S THERE AND IT'S JUST
8/6/09 11:26:44 CHANGING AND I. PERSONALLY I
8/6/09 11:26:44 UNDERSTAND AND I APPRECIATE THE
8/6/09 11:26:47 WORK YOU HAVE DONE BUT
8/6/09 11:26:49 I DON'T
8/6/09 11:26:52 WANT, I DON'T LIKE TO SEE MY
8/6/09 11:26:53 PRIVATE ROADS, PUBLIC ROADS
8/6/09 11:26:54 BECOME PRIVATE ROADS AND I KNOW
8/6/09 11:26:55 YOU'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT THAT.
8/6/09 11:26:57 TOLL ROADS YOU PAY TO SOMEBODY
8/6/09 11:26:57 IN FRANCE AND SPAIN AND WHEN IT
8/6/09 11:27:00 RAINS ALL OF THAT
8/6/09 11:27:03 KIND OF STUFF
8/6/09 11:27:05 BUT I'D REALLY LIKE TO SEE A
8/6/09 11:27:07 COMPARATIVE STUDY, NOT A STUDY
8/6/09 11:27:09 BUT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING
8/6/09 11:27:12 BETWEEN COSTS OF YOU DOING IT
8/6/09 11:27:15 IS YOUR
8/6/09 11:27:18 DOING IT
8/6/09 11:27:18 YOURSELF AND GIVING THE CONTROL
8/6/09 11:27:20 BACK TO THE TAXPAYERS.
8/6/09 11:27:21 I'M NOT AGAINST PRIVATE
8/6/09 11:27:24 INDUSTRY BUT I DON'T LIKE
8/6/09 11:27:27 THEM
8/6/09 11:27:33 OWNING US .
8/6/09 11:27:36 >> A LOT OF PEOPLE ALL OVER ARE
8/6/09 11:27:38 DOING THIS, PERFORMANCE-BASED
8/6/09 11:27:39 CONTRACTING AND THEY GUARANTEE
8/6/09 11:27:42 YOU HOW MUCH SAVINGS THEY DO
8/6/09 11:27:45 THE
8/6/09 11:27:46 ANALYSIS AND THE REASON
8/6/09 11:27:48 THEY DO IT WITH A COMPANY LIKE
8/6/09 11:27:51 THIS, AND THIS IS WHAT THEY DO,
8/6/09 11:27:52 THEY COME IN AND IT'S LIKE
8/6/09 11:27:54 TRANE OR THE BIG COMPANIES THEY
8/6/09 11:27:55 DO THE ANALYSIS AND TELL YOU
8/6/09 11:27:57 WHAT YOU CAN DO BUT FRANKLY IF
8/6/09 11:27:58 YOU'RE LOOKING AT 50 DIFFERENT
8/6/09 11:28:00 BUILDINGS I DON'T THINK WE'LL
8/6/09 11:28:03 GET ANYWHERE NEAR
8/6/09 11:28:04 ANY PROPOSAL
8/6/09 11:28:05 FOR A SPECIFIC SOLAR
8/6/09 11:28:07 INSTALLATION OR PROBABLY MUCH
8/6/09 11:28:07 ELSE.
8/6/09 11:28:08 I MEAN I DON'T THINK THEY'LL BE
8/6/09 11:28:11 ABLE TO GET
8/6/09 11:28:14 TO
8/6/09 11:28:16 THAT POINT.
8/6/09 11:28:19 I THINK
8/6/09 11:28:20 THAT'S WHY MR.
8/6/09 11:28:21 DINGFELDER MADE THE MOTION OF
8/6/09 11:28:22 SPECIFICALLY DOING THE
8/6/09 11:28:23 CONVENTION CENTER BECAUSE WE
8/6/09 11:28:26 KNOW IT'S GOING,
8/6/09 11:28:29 DOING IT IN
8/6/09 11:28:31 ORLANDO.
8/6/09 11:28:32 I THINK IT'S GREAT IF YOU'RE
8/6/09 11:28:33 AVAILING YOURSELF OF THIS BUT
8/6/09 11:28:35 IT SOUNDS LIKE IT WILL BE VERY
8/6/09 11:28:37 LONG TERM SO I WOULDN'T WORRY
8/6/09 11:28:39 ABOUT BY THE TIME THEY MAKE
8/6/09 11:28:42 THESE YOU KNOW FIGURE
8/6/09 11:28:44 OUT THE
8/6/09 11:28:47 RECOMMENDATIONS,
8/6/09 11:28:48 WE'LL BE WE'LL
8/6/09 11:28:51 HAVE THAT
8/6/09 11:28:53 AND THE NEW ENERGY
8/6/09 11:28:54 SECRETARY, CREATE THAT WILL
8/6/09 11:28:56 SOLAR REFLECTIVE STUFF.
8/6/09 11:28:56 ANYWAY --
8/6/09 11:28:57 >> MOST OF THE COMMENTS ARE
8/6/09 11:28:59 TALKING ABOUT PROGRAM 2. I
8/6/09 11:29:02 MENTIONED PROGRAM 1 BECAUSE IT
8/6/09 11:29:05 DOES ALLOW
8/6/09 11:29:07 ALTERNATIVE ENERGY
8/6/09 11:29:10 IT MAYBE SOMETHING
8/6/09 11:29:12 YOU SEE.
8/6/09 11:29:12 COUNCILMAN MIRANDA.
8/6/09 11:29:13 WE IN FACT PARTICIPATED IN THIS
8/6/09 11:29:16 PROCESS IN THE
8/6/09 11:29:19 PAST IN A
8/6/09 11:29:25 PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION
8/6/09 11:29:29 OUR
8/6/09 11:29:31 MAJOR GENESCO DID ABOUT A
8/6/09 11:29:34 YEAR'S WORTH OF WORK
8/6/09 11:29:34 AND WE
8/6/09 11:29:35 MUTUALLIY AGREED THE SAVINGS
8/6/09 11:29:36 AVAILABLE AT THAT TIME WE HAD
8/6/09 11:29:39 ALREADY DONE THE THINGS THEY
8/6/09 11:29:42 MADE MONEY OFF OF
8/6/09 11:29:43 AND WE
8/6/09 11:29:44 MUTUALLIY PARTED WAYS.
8/6/09 11:29:46 WE'RE NOT GOING TO BRING YOU
8/6/09 11:29:47 SOMETHING WE HAVE NOT BIDDED
8/6/09 11:29:47 CAREFULLY.
8/6/09 11:29:51 THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS AND
8/6/09 11:29:51 HOW YOU MEASURE THE ACTUAL
8/6/09 11:29:54 SAVINGS AND WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU
8/6/09 11:29:57 DON'T SEE IT AND WE'RE GOING TO
8/6/09 11:30:00 BE VERY DELIBERATE AND CAREFUL.
8/6/09 11:30:03 IT DOES HAVE AN ASPECT THAT
8/6/09 11:30:04 POTENTIALLY ALLOWS SOME SOLAR
8/6/09 11:30:04 APPLICATIONS.
8/6/09 11:30:05 SECOND THING THAT'S UNDERWAY
8/6/09 11:30:08 AND I
8/6/09 11:30:11 THINK THIS
8/6/09 11:30:12 ADDRESSES MORE
8/6/09 11:30:13 DIRECTLY THE THINGS YOU BROUGHT
8/6/09 11:30:13 UP.
8/6/09 11:30:15 WE HAVE A COUPLE THINGS THAT
8/6/09 11:30:16 ARE HAPPENING AND ONE IS
8/6/09 11:30:19 RELATED TO THE KINDS OF THINGS
8/6/09 11:30:21 THAT COUNCILMAN MIRANDA JUST
8/6/09 11:30:23 MENTIONED, THE TECHNOLOGY IS
8/6/09 11:30:23 CHANGING.
8/6/09 11:30:26 THERE'S STUFF WE
8/6/09 11:30:29 DON'T KNOW
8/6/09 11:30:31 ABOUT ON TOP OF WHICH TOM
8/6/09 11:30:32 SNELLING HAS FOLKS LINED OUT OF
8/6/09 11:30:35 HIS DOOR WANTING TO SHOW THEM
8/6/09 11:30:35 THE SOLAR PANEL THAT'S
8/6/09 11:30:37 DIFFERENT THAN EVERYBODY ELSE'S
8/6/09 11:30:38 AND MY LITTLE BLACK BOX YOU
8/6/09 11:30:41 CLIP ON THE BUILDING
8/6/09 11:30:42 AND YOU'LL
8/6/09 11:30:43 SEE, IT'S OVERWHELMING NOT ONLY
8/6/09 11:30:45 TO DEAL WITH THE AMOUNT BUT THE
8/6/09 11:30:48 CONTENT AND VERIFY WHAT'S THERE
8/6/09 11:30:51 SO WHAT WE HAVE
8/6/09 11:30:51 DONE IS PROVIDE
8/6/09 11:30:54 AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THOSE FOLKS
8/6/09 11:30:57 TO COME TELL US IN
8/6/09 11:30:57 A
8/6/09 11:30:59 STANDARDIZED FASHION WHAT IT IS
8/6/09 11:31:02 THAT THEY HAVE AND WHAT
8/6/09 11:31:03 OPPORTUNITIES AND SPECIFICALLY
8/6/09 11:31:04 WE'RE ASKING THEM TO DO THINGS
8/6/09 11:31:06 LIKE TELL US WHAT IT IS, WHAT'S
8/6/09 11:31:09 IT GOING TO DO FOR US, DOES IT
8/6/09 11:31:10 HAVE A TRACK RECORD.
8/6/09 11:31:13 HOW DO YOU SEE IT BEING USED
8/6/09 11:31:15 BY
8/6/09 11:31:17 THE CITY AND WHAT ARE ALL OF
8/6/09 11:31:20 THE COSTS?
8/6/09 11:31:22 START UP, DESIGN, OPERATION
8/6/09 11:31:22 MAINTENANCE.
8/6/09 11:31:25 HOW LONG WILL IT LAST.
8/6/09 11:31:26 WHAT SORT OF PAY BACK WILL
8/6/09 11:31:29 THERE BE AND
8/6/09 11:31:30 NOT LEAST
8/6/09 11:31:31 IMPORTANT WHAT SORT OF FUNDING
8/6/09 11:31:32 IS AVAILABLE TO DO THIS.
8/6/09 11:31:34 CAN YOU BRING OTHER FUNDING AND
8/6/09 11:31:35 OTHER HELP US OBTAIN FUNDING AS
8/6/09 11:31:37 OPPOSED TO US PUTTING THE
8/6/09 11:31:40 CAPITAL UP FRONT.
8/6/09 11:31:42 THAT'S A PARTIAL LIST OF THE
8/6/09 11:31:43 THINGS WE'RE ASKING THE FOLKS
8/6/09 11:31:46 TO DO AND THE INTENT IS TO
8/6/09 11:31:47 PROVIDE THE OPPORTUNITY AND IN
8/6/09 11:31:48 A
8/6/09 11:31:49 WAY TO REVIEW IT AND IDENTIFY
8/6/09 11:31:51 THE THINGS THAT ARE REALISTIC.
8/6/09 11:31:54 A SIDEBAR JUST A MINUTE ON SOME
8/6/09 11:31:56 OF THE SOLAR PROJECTS THAT WE
8/6/09 11:31:57 SEE AROUND THE STATE AND I'M
8/6/09 11:32:00 NOT GOING TO CALL ANY
8/6/09 11:32:01 BY NAME
8/6/09 11:32:02 BUT FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN SO
8/6/09 11:32:05 FAR I SEE THEM FALLING INTO ONE
8/6/09 11:32:05 OF THREE CATEGORIES.
8/6/09 11:32:08 ONE IS SORTS OF A SMALL SCALE
8/6/09 11:32:09 KIND OF TYPICAL SOLAR
8/6/09 11:32:10 INSTALLATION AND I'LL TALK
8/6/09 11:32:12 ABOUT ONE WE HAVE OUT FOR BID
8/6/09 11:32:14 RIGHT NOW IN A MINUTE BUT TWO,
8/6/09 11:32:16 IN THE LARGER, AND THE LARGER
8/6/09 11:32:17 PROJECTS I SEE THEM EITHER
8/6/09 11:32:20 BEING PROJECTS THAT REQUIRE
8/6/09 11:32:23 LOTS OF CATCH
8/6/09 11:32:25 UP FRONT THAT
8/6/09 11:32:27 NOBODY IS PROVIDING THAT HAVE
8/6/09 11:32:29 IMPOSSIBLE PAY BACK TIMES.
8/6/09 11:32:32 THE LIFE OF THE EQUIPMENT IS
8/6/09 11:32:33 LIKE FOUR TIMES LESS THAN WHAT
8/6/09 11:32:35 THE PAY BACK IS SO YOU NEVER
8/6/09 11:32:36 RECOUP THE COSTS.
8/6/09 11:32:39 THE OTHER PROJECTS I SEE ARE
8/6/09 11:32:41 FACILITIES THAT ARE BEING
8/6/09 11:32:43 TOUTED AS BEING CONVERTED TO
8/6/09 11:32:45 SOLAR ANALYSTING SAVINGS THAT
8/6/09 11:32:45 ARE PRODUCED.
8/6/09 11:32:46 WHEN YOU READ THE ARTICLE WHAT
8/6/09 11:32:49 THEY ARE REALLY DOING
8/6/09 11:32:51 OR HAVE
8/6/09 11:32:53 DONE IS A PROJECT SIMILAR TO
8/6/09 11:32:54 WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING FOR
8/6/09 11:32:57 FIVE YEARS THAT
8/6/09 11:32:57 PRODUCES
8/6/09 11:32:59 SAVINGS AND THEY HAVE STUCK TWO
8/6/09 11:33:00 OR THREE SOLAR PAGES IN THE
8/6/09 11:33:02 FRONT YARD AND SAID WE'RE A
8/6/09 11:33:02 SOLAR FACILITY.
8/6/09 11:33:04 WE DON'T WANT TO DO EITHER.
8/6/09 11:33:07 WE WAN TO FIND PROJECTS
8/6/09 11:33:07 THAT
8/6/09 11:33:08 PRODUCE MESS RABBLE RESULTS IN
8/6/09 11:33:10 A
8/6/09 11:33:10 WAY THAT'S BENEFICIAL TO US AND
8/6/09 11:33:11 WE THINK THIS IS A
8/6/09 11:33:14 WAY TO GET
8/6/09 11:33:14 AT THAT.
8/6/09 11:33:17 THAT DRAFT IS RIGHT NOW IN
8/6/09 11:33:18 LEGAL AND WITH TOM AND OTHERS
8/6/09 11:33:20 GOING THROUGH THE FINAL REVIEWS
8/6/09 11:33:23 AND WE ANTICIPATE ISSUING IT BY
8/6/09 11:33:26 THE END OF THIS MONTH WE'RE NOT
8/6/09 11:33:28 JUST WAITING ON THIS.
8/6/09 11:33:30 THERE ARE OTHER THINGS GOING ON
8/6/09 11:33:31 THAT WE'RE PURSUING ONE OF
8/6/09 11:33:33 THOSE IS THE WAIST WATER
8/6/09 11:33:34 DEPARTMENT HAS BEEN APPROACHED
8/6/09 11:33:37 BY A CENTRAL PARTNER TO DO
8/6/09 11:33:38 WHAT
8/6/09 11:33:41 WE CALL A
8/6/09 11:33:42 GASIFICATION
8/6/09 11:33:42 IMPROVEMENT.
8/6/09 11:33:43 THIS IS A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR
8/6/09 11:33:44 PROJECT THAT A PARTNER IS
8/6/09 11:33:47 LOOKING TO COME IN AND
8/6/09 11:33:49 PROVIDE
8/6/09 11:33:52 FUNDING FOR THAT HAS THE
8/6/09 11:33:52 POTENTIAL TO TAKE SLUDGE AND
8/6/09 11:33:53 OTHER WAYS TO PROVIDE FUEL AND
8/6/09 11:33:56 ELECTRICITY AND THEY
8/6/09 11:33:57 HAVE
8/6/09 11:33:59 APPROACHED US THEY'RE A PARTNER
8/6/09 11:33:59 WITH MONEY.
8/6/09 11:34:01 STAFF IS REVIEWING THAT RIGHT
8/6/09 11:34:01 NOW.
8/6/09 11:34:03 OTHER INSTALLATIONS WHERE THIS
8/6/09 11:34:04 IS DONE ON A SMALL SCALE BUT
8/6/09 11:34:07 THIS IS A CHANCE TO DO
8/6/09 11:34:08 SOMETHING.
8/6/09 11:34:09 IT'S A LILY WEEK --UNIQUE WITH
8/6/09 11:34:10 GREAT POTENTIAL.
8/6/09 11:34:11 ANOTHER THING WE'RE LOOKING AT
8/6/09 11:34:14 IS PARKS AND REC DEPARTMENT HAS
8/6/09 11:34:17 BEEN APPROACHED ABOUT
8/6/09 11:34:19 TECHNOLOGY CALLED GEO THERMAL
8/6/09 11:34:22 HYDROLOGY AND IT'S THE ABILITY
8/6/09 11:34:23 TO USE THE EARTH TO HEAT
8/6/09 11:34:23 SWIMMING POOLS.
8/6/09 11:34:25 IT'S BEEN DONE AROUND THE
8/6/09 11:34:26 WORLD, FRANKLY MOST OF THE
8/6/09 11:34:29 PLACES THAT HAVE DONE IT
8/6/09 11:34:30 ARE
8/6/09 11:34:31 PLACES WITH HOT SPRINGS SO IT
8/6/09 11:34:33 WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW
8/6/09 11:34:36 EXACTLY WE CAN UTILIZE
8/6/09 11:34:38 THIS BUT
8/6/09 11:34:38 WE'RE PURSUING THAT AND FIRE
8/6/09 11:34:40 STATION 22 IS ON THE STREET
8/6/09 11:34:40 RIGHT NOW.
8/6/09 11:34:42 PART OF THAT PROJECT IS SOLAR
8/6/09 11:34:44 HEATING FOR THE DOMESTIC WATER
8/6/09 11:34:47 AS WELL AS EXTERIOR BUILDING SO
8/6/09 11:34:50 WE'RE MOVING ON
8/6/09 11:34:53 A
8/6/09 11:34:56 SMALL SCALE
8/6/09 11:34:57 THE THIRD IS WITH THE
8/6/09 11:34:59 UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA FOR
8/6/09 11:35:00 UTILITY EXPLORATION.
8/6/09 11:35:03 THIS IS THE GROUP THAT
8/6/09 11:35:03 IS
8/6/09 11:35:06 PARTNERING WITH THE ZOO AND
8/6/09 11:35:07 THEY'RE PREPARING A
8/6/09 11:35:09 DEMONSTRATION PROJECT TO
8/6/09 11:35:10 PROVIDE SOLAR POWER TO THE ZOO
8/6/09 11:35:11 SKY RIDE.
8/6/09 11:35:13 THIS GROUP IS WORKING AROUND
8/6/09 11:35:15 THE STATE WITH VARIOUS
8/6/09 11:35:15 MUNICIPALITIES ON DIFFERENT
8/6/09 11:35:18 KINDS OF PROJECTS
8/6/09 11:35:19 INCLUDING
8/6/09 11:35:22 SOLAR OR SMART GRID THEY
8/6/09 11:35:22 HAVE
8/6/09 11:35:22 SOFTWARE THAT THEY HAVE
8/6/09 11:35:25 DEVELOPED THAT HAS,
8/6/09 11:35:26 PROVIDES
8/6/09 11:35:27 SOME CAPE BUILT TO LET
8/6/09 11:35:28 FACILITIES SHARE LOADS AND
8/6/09 11:35:30 OPTIMIZE ENERGY USE.
8/6/09 11:35:31 ONE BENEFIT THAT THE GROUP
8/6/09 11:35:33 BRINGS IS THAT THEY BRING
8/6/09 11:35:34 FUNDING WITH THEM.
8/6/09 11:35:36 THEY HAVE A TRACK RECORD OF
8/6/09 11:35:37 SUCCESS IN SECURING GRANTS AND
8/6/09 11:35:38 PARTNERS TO IMPLEMENT PROJECTS.
8/6/09 11:35:41 WE HAVE STARTED MEETING WITH
8/6/09 11:35:43 THEM AND HAVE HAD MULTIPLE
8/6/09 11:35:45 MEETINGS WITH THEM AND IT'S
8/6/09 11:35:48 BECOME CLEAR VERY QUICKLY THAT
8/6/09 11:35:51 THERE ARE POTENTIAL PROJECTS
8/6/09 11:35:54 FOR US TO
8/6/09 11:35:57 DO TOGETHER
8/6/09 11:35:58 AND WE'RE
8/6/09 11:36:00 BEGINNING TO FOCUS ON TWO
8/6/09 11:36:00 AVENUES.
8/6/09 11:36:02 ONE WE'RE LOOKING FOR A PROJECT
8/6/09 11:36:03 TO GET UNDERWAY FAIRLY QUICKLY
8/6/09 11:36:04 AND I'LL DEFINE THAT IN A
8/6/09 11:36:07 MINUTE BUT WE WANT IT TO
8/6/09 11:36:08 BE ONE
8/6/09 11:36:09 THAT INCORPORATES ENERGY,
8/6/09 11:36:10 AVAILABLE FOR OUTSIDE FUNDING
8/6/09 11:36:12 AND PRODUCE SOMETHING VISIBLE
8/6/09 11:36:14 THAT WE CAN POINT AT AND SAY
8/6/09 11:36:15 WE'RE DONE AS OPPOSED TO
8/6/09 11:36:17 SOMETHING INSIDE OF A BUILDING
8/6/09 11:36:18 THAT NOBODY SEES AND KNOWS
8/6/09 11:36:21 ABOUT AND THAT'S SCALA-BLE.
8/6/09 11:36:23 THAT IS, IT'S SOMETHING WE CAN
8/6/09 11:36:26 DO AS PILOT PROJECT, AS
8/6/09 11:36:28 SOMETHING THAT WE CAN USE IN
8/6/09 11:36:30 OTHER FACILITIES OR MAYBE EVEN
8/6/09 11:36:33 LINK TO OTHER FACILITIES WE
8/6/09 11:36:34 HAVE THROWN OUT AND DISCUSSED
8/6/09 11:36:37 SOME SPECIFICS ABOUT WHAT THAT
8/6/09 11:36:38 MIGHT BE.
8/6/09 11:36:40 THE POWER CENTER HAS CAUTIONED
8/6/09 11:36:42 US NOT TO TALK TOO MUCH ABOUT
8/6/09 11:36:43 SPECIFICS AT THIS POINT BECAUSE
8/6/09 11:36:45 THE FUNDING WE'RE GOING FOR IS
8/6/09 11:36:48 COMPETITIVE AND WE WANT TO
8/6/09 11:36:49 GET
8/6/09 11:36:50 THERE FIRST SO WE'LL BE HERE IN
8/6/09 11:36:51 THE FUTURE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT
8/6/09 11:36:52 THAT AND THEN SECOND WE HAVE
8/6/09 11:36:54 TALKED ABOUT LONG TERM THINGS
8/6/09 11:36:56 WE CAN DO.
8/6/09 11:36:58 LARGER SCALE THINGS THAT WOULD
8/6/09 11:37:01 PERHAPS INVOLVE ADDITIONAL
8/6/09 11:37:03 PARTNERS AND FACES OF --PHASES
8/6/09 11:37:05 OF THOSE KINDS OF THINGS.
8/6/09 11:37:05 THESE PEOPLE HAVE WORKED WITH
8/6/09 11:37:07 FOLKS AROUND THE STATE.
8/6/09 11:37:08 THEY OUGHT TO BE WORKING WITH
8/6/09 11:37:11 US AND WE'RE LOOKING
8/6/09 11:37:13 FORWARD TO
8/6/09 11:37:16 WORKING
8/6/09 11:37:18 WITH THEM.
8/6/09 11:37:21 >> THANK
8/6/09 11:37:23 YOU.
8/6/09 11:37:26 >> ANY QUESTIONS PGH
8/6/09 11:37:29 >> (INAUDIBLE QUESTION)
8/6/09 11:37:32 >> I THINK IT WOULD BE
8/6/09 11:37:32 GREAT IF
8/6/09 11:37:34 YOU COULD COME BACK TO US A
8/6/09 11:37:37 COUPLE TIMES A YEAR WITH
8/6/09 11:37:37 THESE
8/6/09 11:37:41 UPDATES BECAUSE
8/6/09 11:37:42 THEY'RE
8/6/09 11:37:44 INFORMATIVE IT'S GOOD FOR US TO
8/6/09 11:37:47 KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND IT'S
8/6/09 11:37:50 IMPORTANT TO
8/6/09 11:37:51 THE COMMUNITY.
8/6/09 11:37:53 THE ORIGINAL MOTION RELATED TO
8/6/09 11:37:54 THE CONVENTION CENTER, WHERE DO
8/6/09 11:37:57 YOU THINK THE CONVENTION CENTER
8/6/09 11:38:00 OPPORTUNITY, IF THERE IS ONE,
8/6/09 11:38:03 MIGHT SHOW ITS HEAD IN TERMS OF
8/6/09 11:38:04 THE THREE OR FOUR DIFFERENT
8/6/09 11:38:08 THINGS THAT YOU ALL
8/6/09 11:38:11 ARE
8/6/09 11:38:13 WORKING
8/6/09 11:38:14 ON?
8/6/09 11:38:14 >>
8/6/09 11:38:16 >> WE HAVE ENOUGH SOLAR VENDORS
8/6/09 11:38:18 WHO CONTACTED US TRYING TO SELL
8/6/09 11:38:19 US THEIR PARTICULAR PRODUCT
8/6/09 11:38:20 THAT IS BETTER THAN EVERYBODY
8/6/09 11:38:21 ELSE.
8/6/09 11:38:24 I WOULD EXPECT THEM TO RESPOND
8/6/09 11:38:27 TO THAT AND TO
8/6/09 11:38:28 THE EXTENT WE
8/6/09 11:38:29 DON'T FIND THAT WE'LL GO
8/6/09 11:38:31 LOOKING FOR IT.
8/6/09 11:38:34 >> SO TRANSLATED I GUESS NONE
8/6/09 11:38:36 OF THE ESCOS THEY'RE INTO
8/6/09 11:38:38 SAVINGS ENERGY ON EXISTING
8/6/09 11:38:41 BUILDINGS AS COMPARED
8/6/09 11:38:43 TO
8/6/09 11:38:46 GENERATING ENERGIES
8/6/09 11:38:47 WHY THE
8/6/09 11:38:47 LIMITATION.
8/6/09 11:38:50 >> IT'S BEEN SOMEWHAT STATUTORY
8/6/09 11:38:53 IN
8/6/09 11:38:56 THE PAST
8/6/09 11:38:58 WE'LL SEE AS WE GO
8/6/09 11:38:59 THROUGH THE SELECTION PROCESS
8/6/09 11:39:01 I'M NOT SURE IF ANY HAVE A
8/6/09 11:39:02 TRACK RECORD YET.
8/6/09 11:39:03 WE MAYBE SURPRISED AS WE GO
8/6/09 11:39:05 THROUGH BUT IT APPEARS THERE
8/6/09 11:39:07 ARE MORE TRADITIONAL ENERGY
8/6/09 11:39:09 SOURCES, TRADITIONAL SORT OF
8/6/09 11:39:10 WEATHER ICING AND UPGRADES TO
8/6/09 11:39:13 THE EQUIPMENT AND
8/6/09 11:39:16 THINGS
8/6/09 11:39:17 LIKE
8/6/09 11:39:18 THAT.
8/6/09 11:39:20 >> I WAS THINKING ABOUT WHEN WE
8/6/09 11:39:23 ACTUALLY STARTED HAVING RAIN,
8/6/09 11:39:25 AND WE, I WOULD ASSUME EVER
8/6/09 11:39:28 SINCE HAVE
8/6/09 11:39:31 HAD WATER OVER
8/6/09 11:39:33 THE
8/6/09 11:39:33 DAM.
8/6/09 11:39:35 HAVE WE LOOKED INTO ELECTRICAL
8/6/09 11:39:35 GENERATION AT THE DAM.
8/6/09 11:39:36 >> I'M NOT AWARE.
8/6/09 11:39:39 WATER DEPARTMENT MAY HAVE.
8/6/09 11:39:42 I'M NOT
8/6/09 11:39:43 AWARE.
8/6/09 11:39:44 >> IF YOU COULD THROW THAT TO
8/6/09 11:39:47 TOM OR BRAD IN
8/6/09 11:39:48 THE WATER
8/6/09 11:39:50 DEPARTMENT WE'D APPRECIATE
8/6/09 11:39:50 THAT.
8/6/09 11:39:51 >> I JUST HAVE ONE QUESTION.
8/6/09 11:39:52 WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THE BUY
8/6/09 11:39:55 WITH REGARD TO THE SOLAR AND
8/6/09 11:39:58 THE CONVENTION CENTER,
8/6/09 11:40:00 DOES THE
8/6/09 11:40:02 RFI INCLUDE THAT BUILDING
8/6/09 11:40:03 SPECIFICALLY, WILL IT?
8/6/09 11:40:06 >> IT DOESN'T
8/6/09 11:40:09 INCLUDE
8/6/09 11:40:11 ANY
8/6/09 11:40:12 BUILDINGS SPECIFICALLY, ANY
8/6/09 11:40:13 APPLICATION, ANYTHING ANYBODY
8/6/09 11:40:15 CAN BRING TO US RELATED TO
8/6/09 11:40:16 ALTERNATIVE ENERGY INCLUDING
8/6/09 11:40:17 SOLAR THAT WOULD BENEFIT.
8/6/09 11:40:20 >> SO THIS IS A
8/6/09 11:40:23 REQUEST
8/6/09 11:40:25 FOR
8/6/09 11:40:26 INFORMATION
8/6/09 11:40:27 >> INFORMATION, RIGHT.
8/6/09 11:40:28 >> YOU HAVE TO MAKE THAT A
8/6/09 11:40:30 PROCESS, YOU CAN'T DO RESEARCH.
8/6/09 11:40:32 >> IF I OR SOMEBODY ELSE
8/6/09 11:40:35 DOESN'T DO ANYTHING ELSE,
8/6/09 11:40:36 REVOLVING CONVEYOR BELT FOR
8/6/09 11:40:37 FOLKS COMING IN WHO WANT TO
8/6/09 11:40:39 SELL US STUFF WHO ARE NOT
8/6/09 11:40:42 COMING PREPARED AND NOT
8/6/09 11:40:42 COMING
8/6/09 11:40:44 --THIS IS TO PROVIDE A FORMAT
8/6/09 11:40:47 TO GET THE KIND OF INFORMATION
8/6/09 11:40:50 SO WE CAN DETERMINE WHAT
8/6/09 11:40:52 IS
8/6/09 11:40:52 VIABLE.
8/6/09 11:40:53 >> THIS IS WHAT OCCURS TO ME.
8/6/09 11:40:54 THIS IS THE BIGGEST GLOBAL
8/6/09 11:40:56 ISSUE PROBABLY OF OUR CENTURY
8/6/09 11:40:59 AND WE HAVE ONE PERSON

8/6/09 11:41:09 ALL
8/6/09 11:41:10 OF
8/6/09 11:41:11 THIS ENERGY POLICY AND OF
8/6/09 11:41:12 COURSE IT'S IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE
8/6/09 11:41:13 YOU DON'T HAVE ANY STAFF AND NO
8/6/09 11:41:16 ONE IS ACTUALLY DOING IT SO I
8/6/09 11:41:19 DON'T KNOW HOW
8/6/09 11:41:21 YOU KNOW,
8/6/09 11:41:22 ANYTHING WILL HAPPEN UNLESS WE
8/6/09 11:41:24 GET PEOPLE WHO ARE DEDICATED TO
8/6/09 11:41:25 WORKING ON IT.
8/6/09 11:41:26 >> COUNCIL IS VERY INTERESTED
8/6/09 11:41:26 IN THE ISSUE.
8/6/09 11:41:28 WHAT WOULD BE A GOOD TIME FRAME
8/6/09 11:41:31 FOR YOU TO REPORT

8/6/09 11:46:01 THEM THE CITATION FOR THE
8/6/09 11:46:04 VIOLATION AND THERE'S NO WAY
8/6/09 11:46:06 FOR YOU TO DETERMINE IF THEY'RE
8/6/09 11:46:07 YOU KNOW --
8/6/09 11:46:07 >> THAT'S TRUE.
8/6/09 11:46:09 REGARDING THE CREST BUILDING WE
8/6/09 11:46:12 WERE EVENTUALLY GRANTED
8/6/09 11:46:14 AN
8/6/09 11:46:15 INTERIOR INSPECTION AND WE'RE
8/6/09 11:46:18 HOPEFUL WE'LL BE GRANTED ONE
8/6/09 11:46:21 FOR THE OLD WOOL WORTH
8/6/09 11:46:22 BUILDING.
8/6/09 11:46:22 IT'S UNDER THE SAME OWNERSHIP
8/6/09 11:46:23 AS YOU KNOW.
8/6/09 11:46:24 >> I READ OVER THE REPORT WHICH
8/6/09 11:46:27 WAS VERY GOOD AND THANK YOU.
8/6/09 11:46:27 I'M NOT UNHAPPY.
8/6/09 11:46:29 I THINK YOU GUYS ARE DOING
8/6/09 11:46:30 EVERYTHING YOU CAN AND THANKS
8/6/09 11:46:32 FOR DOING THAT BUT I DON'T KNOW
8/6/09 11:46:35 HOW YOU CAN
8/6/09 11:46:36 EVER BE SUCCESSFUL
8/6/09 11:46:38 IF YOU HAVE TO WAIT A YEAR.
8/6/09 11:46:40 THE INSPECTION WAS IN SEPTEMBER
8/6/09 11:46:42 2008 WHERE ALL OF THE PROBLEMS
8/6/09 11:46:42 WERE IDENTIFIED.
8/6/09 11:46:45 IT'S ALMOST A YEAR LATER AND
8/6/09 11:46:48 THEY'RE NOT AGREEING TO --OH
8/6/09 11:46:50 NO, THERE WAS ANOTHER ONE PGH
8/6/09 11:46:51 >> IN JANUARY, YES PGH
8/6/09 11:46:53 >> I THINK I'M READING THE
8/6/09 11:46:55 CREST BUILDING ONE.
8/6/09 11:46:57 YES, THE CREST BUILDING.
8/6/09 11:46:58 >> OUR INTERIOR INSPECTION WAS
8/6/09 11:46:59 PROBABLY ALMOST A YEAR AGO
8/6/09 11:47:00 THERE PGH
8/6/09 11:47:00 >> RIGHT.
8/6/09 11:47:02 >> BUT YOU HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE
8/6/09 11:47:05 TO GO IN AND SEE IF THEY
8/6/09 11:47:05 HAVE
8/6/09 11:47:06 COMPLIED WITH --
8/6/09 11:47:06 >> NO.
8/6/09 11:47:08 OUR INSPECTION WAS BASED ON THE
8/6/09 11:47:11 EXTERIOR.
8/6/09 11:47:13 WE VERIFIED ON THE INTERIOR OF
8/6/09 11:47:15 THE CREST BUILDING THERE WERE
8/6/09 11:47:18 NO STRUCTURAL, NO OUTSTANDING
8/6/09 11:47:18 STRUCTURAL ISSUES.
8/6/09 11:47:20 THE BUILDING WAS QUITE SOUND.
8/6/09 11:47:22 OUR VIOLATIONS ARE REGARDING,
8/6/09 11:47:25 ON THE CREST BUILDING, AT I
8/6/09 11:47:27 BELIEVE THE ADDRESS THERE IS
8/6/09 11:47:29 810 NORTH FLORIDA, ON THE CREST
8/6/09 11:47:32 BUILDING OUR VIOLATIONS ARE
8/6/09 11:47:35 STRICTLY REGARDING ISSUES ON
8/6/09 11:47:35 THE EXTERIOR, SECURING OR
8/6/09 11:47:38 REPAIR OF
8/6/09 11:47:39 THE WINDOWS, THE
8/6/09 11:47:40 ONING, TRIM AND THINGS LIKE
8/6/09 11:47:40 THAT.
8/6/09 11:47:43 >> BUT ISN'T THIS THE ONE WHERE
8/6/09 11:47:46 YOU SAW
8/6/09 11:47:49 THERE WAS LEAKAGE FROM
8/6/09 11:47:51 SEVERAL OF THE FLOORS, THE ROOF
8/6/09 11:47:52 WAS LEAKING.
8/6/09 11:47:53 >> THERE WAS NONSTRUCTURAL
8/6/09 11:47:56 DAMAGE TO A LOT OF
8/6/09 11:47:57 THE CONCRETE
8/6/09 11:48:00 MEMBERS, THINGS LIKE THAT BUT
8/6/09 11:48:01 IT WASN'T OF A STRUCTURAL
8/6/09 11:48:01 MATTER.
8/6/09 11:48:02 SO LONG AS THE BUILD SOMETHING
8/6/09 11:48:04 VACANT IT WASN'T AN ISSUE.
8/6/09 11:48:04 >> OKAY.
8/6/09 11:48:05 THANKS.
8/6/09 11:48:08 WELL I DO HAVE A QUESTION
8/6/09 11:48:11 FOR
8/6/09 11:48:14 YOU MR. FLETCHER, IF WE FIND
8/6/09 11:48:17 THAT THERE ARE CODE VIOLATIONS
8/6/09 11:48:18 AND I'M, NOW I'M GOING BACK TO
8/6/09 11:48:20 THE OTHER BUILDING, IS THIS THE
8/6/09 11:48:21 WOOL WORTH BUILDING IS THAT
8/6/09 11:48:22 WHAT IT WAS?
8/6/09 11:48:25 BUT YOU'RE NOT
8/6/09 11:48:27 ALLOWED TO
8/6/09 11:48:30 EXAMINE IT AND THE PROBLEM, LET
8/6/09 11:48:32 ME FINISH, THE PROBLEM IS THAT
8/6/09 11:48:34 THEY DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S
8/6/09 11:48:36 STRUCTURAL DAMAGE, THE LONGER
8/6/09 11:48:39 THE OWNER DELAYS
8/6/09 11:48:40 ALLOWING YOU
8/6/09 11:48:41 ACCESS, THE WORSE CONDITION IT
8/6/09 11:48:44 GETS IN SO I CAN'T IMAGINE WHY
8/6/09 11:48:45 A WARRANT WOULDN'T BE GRANTED
8/6/09 11:48:46 PGH
8/6/09 11:48:49 >> WELL, WHAT YOU'RE HEARING IS
8/6/09 11:48:51 A PROCESS THAT THE STATUTE
8/6/09 11:48:52 AUTHORITYING THE WARRANT
8/6/09 11:48:53 EXPECTS TO HAPPEN PRIOR TO
8/6/09 11:48:56 SEEKING THAT WARRANT.
8/6/09 11:48:58 THE STATUTE EXPRESSLY REQUIRES
8/6/09 11:48:58 THAT YOU SEEK PERMISSION FROM
8/6/09 11:49:01 THE PROPERTY OWNER BEFORE
8/6/09 11:49:03 SEEKING A WARRANT IF THAT
8/6/09 11:49:05 PROPERTY OWNER DENIES ACCESS
8/6/09 11:49:06 THEN YOU EVALUATE WHETHER YOU
8/6/09 11:49:07 HAVE --
8/6/09 11:49:07 >> THEY HAVE, RIGHT?
8/6/09 11:49:10 >> WELL I DON'T KNOW THAT THEY
8/6/09 11:49:14 HAVE FORMALLY DENIED THAT
8/6/09 11:49:15 THEY'RE STILL DISCUSSING THAT
8/6/09 11:49:17 BUT THEN, THEN WHAT YOU HAVE TO
8/6/09 11:49:20 DO IS EVALUATE WHETHER OR NOT
8/6/09 11:49:22 UNDER THE STATUTE YOU CAN
8/6/09 11:49:24 ALLEGE THE FACTS NECESSARY TO
8/6/09 11:49:26 GET THE WARRANT AND THERE ARE A
8/6/09 11:49:29 VARIETY OF THINGS WE HAVE TO
8/6/09 11:49:30 GO
8/6/09 11:49:31 THROUGH AND ALLEGE AND
8/6/09 11:49:33 DEMONSTRATE TO A JUDGE AND THEN
8/6/09 11:49:35 IN ADDITION TO THAT, WE WOULD
8/6/09 11:49:36 THEN AFTER THAT WARRANT IS
8/6/09 11:49:38 ISSUED NEED TO COORDINATE WITH
8/6/09 11:49:40 THE PROPERTY OWNER, FOR ACCESS
8/6/09 11:49:44 TO THE BUILDING
8/6/09 11:49:45 STILL SO
8/6/09 11:49:48 THERE'S A LOT OF PRIVATE
8/6/09 11:49:49 PROPERTY PROTECTIONS BUILT IN.
8/6/09 11:49:52 >> I UNDERSTAND THAT BUT I WANT
8/6/09 11:49:54 TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO AS MUCH
8/6/09 11:49:57 AS YOU CAN AND
8/6/09 11:49:59 BE AGGRESSIVE.
8/6/09 11:50:01 AND GOING FORWARD WITH IT.
8/6/09 11:50:04 THIS IS THE PROBLEM, THE
8/6/09 11:50:04 NEGLECT.
8/6/09 11:50:07 YOU CAN'T CURE THE DEMOLITION
8/6/09 11:50:10 BY NEGLECT UNLESS YOU
8/6/09 11:50:12 CAN SEE
8/6/09 11:50:12 IT.
8/6/09 11:50:14 I WOULD DOUBT IF YOU CAN'T SEE
8/6/09 11:50:16 IT IT'S THERE.
8/6/09 11:50:18 THEY'RE NOT LETTING
8/6/09 11:50:19 YOU IN.
8/6/09 11:50:20 >> THE INTRUSION OF THE WATER
8/6/09 11:50:21 INTO THE BASEMENT, WHERE IS
8/6/09 11:50:22 THAT WATER COMING FROM.
8/6/09 11:50:25 >> ON THE CREST BUILDING SIR?
8/6/09 11:50:26 >> YES.
8/6/09 11:50:28 THAT'S GROUND WATER SEEPING.
8/6/09 11:50:28 IT'S NOT ACTUALLY THE.
8/6/09 11:50:31 >> IT'S NOT COMING FROM
8/6/09 11:50:32 THE
8/6/09 11:50:32 ROOF.
8/6/09 11:50:34 >> NO, SIR.
8/6/09 11:50:34 >>
8/6/09 11:50:37 >> I CAN'T GIVE YOU THE EXACT
8/6/09 11:50:38 DATE.
8/6/09 11:50:39 THAT INSPECTION WITH MYSELF,
8/6/09 11:50:42 CERTIFIED INSPECTOR VI L.A.
8/6/09 11:50:43 AND THE DIRECTOR JAKE LATER WE
8/6/09 11:50:43 WERE ON EVERY FLOOR OF THAT
8/6/09 11:50:46 BUILDING AND IT WAS RIGHT
8/6/09 11:50:48 AFTER
8/6/09 11:50:51 A
8/6/09 11:50:54 MAJOR RAIN
8/6/09 11:50:57 AND
8/6/09 11:50:59 MOST OF US, WE
8/6/09 11:50:59 ALL KNOW THAT BASEMENTS IN
8/6/09 11:51:01 FLORIDA ARE A BAD IDEA
8/6/09 11:51:04 ESPECIALLY IN THE OLD
8/6/09 11:51:07 BUILDINGS, THE GROUND WATER
8/6/09 11:51:08 AND
8/6/09 11:51:11 IT COULD SEEP INTO
8/6/09 11:51:13 THE WALL.
8/6/09 11:51:14 >> COULD IT COME FROM PIPES
8/6/09 11:51:15 THAT ARE NOT FUNCTIONING
8/6/09 11:51:16 PROPERLY.
8/6/09 11:51:16 >> COULD BE.
8/6/09 11:51:18 >> HAVE YOU INSPECTED THAT TO
8/6/09 11:51:19 SEE IF THAT'S THE PROBLEM OR
8/6/09 11:51:21 SURFACE WATER COMING FROM THE
8/6/09 11:51:21 STREET THAT --
8/6/09 11:51:23 >> WE'RE NOT GUALIFIED TO
8/6/09 11:51:24 DETERMINE THAT BUT I CAN TELL
8/6/09 11:51:27 YOU THEY HAD A
8/6/09 11:51:30 SU-MP PUMP
8/6/09 11:51:31 IN
8/6/09 11:51:34 OPERATION AND
8/6/09 11:51:35 THE GROUND WATER
8/6/09 11:51:36 PROBLEM WOULD BE A LOT DEEPER
8/6/09 11:51:39 HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THE PUMP
8/6/09 11:51:41 BUT THAT'S NOT CAUSING
8/6/09 11:51:42 STRUCTURAL ISSUES AT THE TIME.
8/6/09 11:51:44 >> HOW DEEP WAS THE WATER AND
8/6/09 11:51:46 HOW DID YOU DETERMINE THAT IT
8/6/09 11:51:49 DIDN'T, THAT IT WASN'T CAUSING
8/6/09 11:51:50 STRUCTURAL ISSUES?
8/6/09 11:51:52 WAS IT LIKE 3 INCHES OR --8
8/6/09 11:51:52 INCHES OR --
8/6/09 11:51:54 >> NO DEEPER THAN 3 INCHES BUT
8/6/09 11:51:55 I COULD NOT CONFIRM HOW DEEP IT
8/6/09 11:51:55 WAS.
8/6/09 11:51:57 >> DID YOU GO TO THE BASEMENT
8/6/09 11:51:57 AND SEE IT.
8/6/09 11:52:00 >> WE WENT DOWN AS FAR AS WE
8/6/09 11:52:00 COULD.
8/6/09 11:52:01 >> WHAT DOES IT MEAN.
8/6/09 11:52:02 >> THERE WAS KIND OF THE
8/6/09 11:52:05 BASEMENT THAT, IN THAT BUILDING
8/6/09 11:52:08 WAS KIND OF
8/6/09 11:52:14 A STORAGE
8/6/09 11:52:18 --
8/6/09 11:52:21 >> DID YOU GO STICK A MEASURING
8/6/09 11:52:22 DEVICE.
8/6/09 11:52:22 >> NO.
8/6/09 11:52:23 >> AND YOU HASN'T BEEN BACK IN
8/6/09 11:52:24 A YEAR.
8/6/09 11:52:24 >> NO.
8/6/09 11:52:27 I CAN TELL YOU BASED ON THE
8/6/09 11:52:28 CONSTRUCTION-TYPE OF THAT
8/6/09 11:52:30 BUILDING GROUND WATER INTO THE
8/6/09 11:52:33 BASEMENT IT WOULD TAKE A VERY
8/6/09 11:52:36 LONG TIME BEFORE IT
8/6/09 11:52:39 BEGINS TO
8/6/09 11:52:40 DETERIORATE THE FOUNDATION
8/6/09 11:52:41 BECAUSE BUILDINGS LIKE THAT ARE
8/6/09 11:52:43 BUILT BASICALLY IN A FLOATING
8/6/09 11:52:44 CONDITION ANYWAY BY VIRTUE OF
8/6/09 11:52:47 THE, OF BEING
8/6/09 11:52:50 BELOW THE ACTUAL
8/6/09 11:52:50 WATER TABLE PGH
8/6/09 11:52:51 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 11:52:52 DID YOU WANT TO SAY SOMETHING.
8/6/09 11:52:54 >> I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING
8/6/09 11:52:54 ELSE.
8/6/09 11:52:54 THERE'S A
8/6/09 11:52:57 TEST THAT CAN BE DONE ON THE
8/6/09 11:52:58 STORM WATER SYSTEM BY THROWING
8/6/09 11:53:00 A DIME INTO THE STORM WATER TO
8/6/09 11:53:03 SEE IF THAT DIME COMES IN THE
8/6/09 11:53:03 BASEMENT.
8/6/09 11:53:05 IT COULD BE THE STORM WATER
8/6/09 11:53:06 THAT'S LEAKING.
8/6/09 11:53:07 >> COULD VERY WELL BE.
8/6/09 11:53:09 >> THAT'S NOT OFTEN WHEN
8/6/09 11:53:10 SOMEONE WANTS TO CHECK THE
8/6/09 11:53:10 SEWER LINES.
8/6/09 11:53:12 THEY PUT A DYE IN THE TOILET
8/6/09 11:53:13 AND SEE WHERE IT COMES OUT.
8/6/09 11:53:14 THAT MAYBE THE PROBLEM.
8/6/09 11:53:15 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 11:53:17 WE NEED TO MOVE A LONG BECAUSE
8/6/09 11:53:20 WE'RE ABOUT TO LOSE OUR QUORU-M
8/6/09 11:53:21 SO ARE THERE OTHER QUESTIONS BY
8/6/09 11:53:21 COUNCIL?
8/6/09 11:53:23 >> I DON'T HAVE A QUESTION.
8/6/09 11:53:25 I WANT TO SEE IF I CAN SHOW
8/6/09 11:53:26 THIS, I'LL JUST PASS IT AROUND.
8/6/09 11:53:29 I SHOWED JOHN.
8/6/09 11:53:30 I DIDN'T BRING MY --
8/6/09 11:53:33 >> CAN YOU LOOK AT THE
8/6/09 11:53:33 OVERHEAD?
8/6/09 11:53:35 >> I JUST HAPPENED TO HAVE MY
8/6/09 11:53:35 CAMERA WITH ME AND REMEMBERED
8/6/09 11:53:38 WHEN I SAW THIS ON THE AGENDA
8/6/09 11:53:40 THAT I HAD BEEN DOWNTOWN
8/6/09 11:53:42 ORLANDO RECENTLY AND I TOOK A
8/6/09 11:53:45 PICTURE OF THE, OF THEIR CREST
8/6/09 11:53:46 DEPARTMENT STORE BUILDING AND
8/6/09 11:53:48 --OH, CAN YOU ZOOM IN?
8/6/09 11:53:51 THAT WOULD BE COOL AND IT'S
8/6/09 11:53:51 BEAUTIFUL.
8/6/09 11:53:53 THERE'S A REALLY NICE
8/6/09 11:53:55 RESTAURANT THAT ACTUALLY, WHO
8/6/09 11:53:58 IS IT, IRVIN STUDIOS DID
8/6/09 11:53:58 THE
8/6/09 11:54:00 DESIGN, INTERIOR DESIGN ON IT
8/6/09 11:54:01 AND I COULDN'T GET THE WHOLE
8/6/09 11:54:02 HEIGHT OF THE BUILDING BECAUSE
8/6/09 11:54:03 I COULDN'T BACK UP FAR ENOUGH
8/6/09 11:54:06 ACROSS THE STREET BUT IT'S IN
8/6/09 11:54:09 BEAUTIFUL SHAPE, JUST GORGEOUS
8/6/09 11:54:10 YOU KNOW PRESERVATION THAT'S
8/6/09 11:54:12 REALLY HELPED REDEVELOP THAT
8/6/09 11:54:14 DOWNTOWN AND INCREASE THE
8/6/09 11:54:16 VALUES OF THE PROPERTIES
8/6/09 11:54:17 ESPECIALLY ON THAT STREET SO --
8/6/09 11:54:19 JUST WANT TODAY SHARE THAT.
8/6/09 11:54:20 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 11:54:23 >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR
8/6/09 11:54:25 STAFF?

8/6/09 11:55:40 LISTED THE REMAINING ITEMS THAT
8/6/09 11:55:43 NEED TO BE CURED WITH

8/6/09 11:55:48 THEY'RE AST-HETIC ITEMS AND
8/6/09 11:55:49 THAT TAKES TIME TO RESOLVE AND
8/6/09 11:55:51 MY CLIENT IS WORKING HARD TO DO

8/6/09 11:55:53 IT TAKES TIME TO KEEP THE

8/6/09 11:56:18 BELIEVE IMMINENT DANGER OF
8/6/09 11:56:19 STRUCTURAL FAILURE EXISTS.

8/6/09 11:57:06 >> THAT'S ALL
8/6/09 11:57:09 I HAVE.
8/6/09 11:57:10 MR. DINGFELDER?
8/6/09 11:57:11 >> JUST SO WE'RE ALL CLEAR
8/6/09 11:57:12 BECAUSE THERE'S BEEN DISCUSSION
8/6/09 11:57:14 ABOUT TWO DIFFERENT BUILDINGS.
8/6/09 11:57:15 DOES YOUR CLIENT OWN THE
8/6/09 11:57:18 BUILDING WITH THE HOLES
8/6/09 11:57:20 IN THE
8/6/09 11:57:20 ROOF?
8/6/09 11:57:22 >> THE WOOL WORTH IS OWNED BY
8/6/09 11:57:24 CREST SQUARE ENTITY ALSO.
8/6/09 11:57:26 I HAVE, ALL WE HAVE IS THE
8/6/09 11:57:28 CITATION THAT WAS ISSUED, AN
8/6/09 11:57:28 ALLEGATION.
8/6/09 11:57:31 WE HAVE NO, WE HAVE NOT BEEN IN
8/6/09 11:57:31 THE BUILDING TO VERIFY THAT.
8/6/09 11:57:33 >> SO THE MOTION YOU'RE TALKING
8/6/09 11:57:36 ABOUT RELATES TO THE OTHER
8/6/09 11:57:36 BUILDING.
8/6/09 11:57:39 >> THE ACTUAL
8/6/09 11:57:40 CREST BUILDING.
8/6/09 11:57:41 THERE'S ANOTHER CREST SQUARE
8/6/09 11:57:42 ENTITY THAT OWNS THE WOOL WORTH
8/6/09 11:57:42 BUILDING.
8/6/09 11:57:44 WE JUST RECEIVED NOTICE OF THAT
8/6/09 11:57:45 VIOLATION LAST MONTH.
8/6/09 11:57:47 >> IS THE WOOL WORTH, WITHOUT
8/6/09 11:57:48 MESSING UP THAT RECORD OR
8/6/09 11:57:49 ANYTHING, IS THE WOOL WORTH
8/6/09 11:57:52 BUILDING SO I WON'T
8/6/09 11:57:55 EVEN --WE
8/6/09 11:57:58 OBSERVED HOLES COURTESY
8/6/09 11:57:58 OF
8/6/09 11:58:00 LINDA SAUL-SENA AND STAFF, IT
8/6/09 11:58:03 APPEARS A HOLE IS A HOLE
8/6/09 11:58:04 IS A
8/6/09 11:58:04 HOLE.
8/6/09 11:58:07 IS THAT BUILDING DESIGNATED A
8/6/09 11:58:08 HISTORIC BUILDING?
8/6/09 11:58:09 >> I DON'T KNOW.
8/6/09 11:58:10 >> LOOKS LIKE THE CLIENT IS
8/6/09 11:58:13 COMING
8/6/09 11:58:14 UP --
8/6/09 11:58:16 >> WELL, IF YOU'LL GIVE ME A
8/6/09 11:58:19 SECOND I CAN GIVE YOU THE RIGHT
8/6/09 11:58:19 ANSWER.
8/6/09 11:58:21 >> YES, I'M NOT THROWING TRICK
8/6/09 11:58:21 QUESTIONS.
8/6/09 11:58:25 I DON'T KNOW THE
8/6/09 11:58:25 ANSWER.
8/6/09 11:58:28 >> JANETTE JASON ON BEHALF
8/6/09 11:58:30 OF
8/6/09 11:58:30 CREST SCARE.
8/6/09 11:58:32 >> IN 05 THE WOOL WORTH
8/6/09 11:58:33 BUILDING WAS REZONED.
8/6/09 11:58:34 SHORTLY THEREAFTER THERE WAS AN
8/6/09 11:58:35 EFFORT BY THE HISTORIC
8/6/09 11:58:37 PRESERVATION TO MAKE IT
8/6/09 11:58:40 HISTORIC WHICH THEY DID AND
8/6/09 11:58:43 THEN WE TOOK A
8/6/09 11:58:44 YEAR, CITY OF
8/6/09 11:58:45 TAMPA UNDESIGNATED IT SO NO
8/6/09 11:58:47 IT'S NOT AN HISTORIC BUILDING.
8/6/09 11:58:48 THE ROOF YOU'RE SEEING IS
8/6/09 11:58:50 ABILITY UP WOOD ROOF.
8/6/09 11:58:50 THERE'S A CONCRETE DECK BELOW
8/6/09 11:58:51 IT.
8/6/09 11:58:51 WE HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING
8/6/09 11:58:54 WHETHER WE WANTED TO TAKE THE
8/6/09 11:58:57 BUILDING DOWN OR WHETHER WE, IT
8/6/09 11:58:58 WAS STRUCTURALLY SOUND.
8/6/09 11:59:00 WE HAD AN ENGINEERING REPORT
8/6/09 11:59:01 DONE RECENTLY.
8/6/09 11:59:02 OUR PROBLEM WITH TAKING THE
8/6/09 11:59:04 BUILDING DOWN IS THAT WE HAVE
8/6/09 11:59:06 AN AGREEMENT IN PLACE FOR A
8/6/09 11:59:08 PORTION OF THE FACADE ON
8/6/09 11:59:08 FRANKLIN STREET SO IN ORDER TO
8/6/09 11:59:10 TAKE IT DOWN, THE BUILDING ON
8/6/09 11:59:11 FRANKLIN STREET HAS TO BE
8/6/09 11:59:12 SHORED UP.
8/6/09 11:59:13 IT JUST DOESN'T WORK.
8/6/09 11:59:15 >> YOU REFRESH MY MEMORY, NOT A
8/6/09 11:59:16 GREAT ONE BUT YOU REFRESHED IT.
8/6/09 11:59:17 >> WAIT, WAIT.
8/6/09 11:59:19 I WANT TO ASK A QUESTION.
8/6/09 11:59:22 I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WANT
8/6/09 11:59:23 TO
8/6/09 11:59:25 ANSWER OR JOHN BUT, YOU SAID
8/6/09 11:59:28 THAT IT WAS DESIGNATED HISTORIC
8/6/09 11:59:28 --
8/6/09 11:59:30 >> RIGHT IT WAS.
8/6/09 11:59:31 >> IT WAS?
8/6/09 11:59:33 >> THEN IT WAS UNDESIGNATED.
8/6/09 11:59:34 >> THAT'S CORRECT.
8/6/09 11:59:35 >> WHO UNDESIGNATED IT.
8/6/09 11:59:36 >> THE CITY.
8/6/09 11:59:38 >> IN A SPLIT VOTE BEFORE --
8/6/09 11:59:39 >> OH, OKAY.
8/6/09 11:59:42 I REMEMBER PGH
8/6/09 11:59:43 >> BEFORE MY TIME?
8/6/09 11:59:46 >> IT WAS CONTENTIOUS.
8/6/09 11:59:48 I REMEMBER PGH
8/6/09 11:59:49 >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?
8/6/09 11:59:52 >> I JUST WANT --

8/6/09 12:00:08 WAS INSPECTED AND
8/6/09 12:00:09 SHOWED SOME
8/6/09 12:00:10 SIGNS OF ROOF LEAKING WHICH GOT
8/6/09 12:00:12 WORSE AS WE WENT HIGHER.
8/6/09 12:00:13 FINALLY THE UPPER LEVEL SHOWS
8/6/09 12:00:16 THE WORST DAMAGE WHICH WAS FROM
8/6/09 12:00:19 YEARS OF RAIN WATER AND HOWEVER
8/6/09 12:00:21 NONE OF THE DAMAGE WAS AS THE
8/6/09 12:00:22 RESULT OF A RECENT OCCURRENCE
8/6/09 12:00:24 AND DID NOT APPEAR TO BE DAMP
8/6/09 12:00:27 AT THE TIME OF
8/6/09 12:00:28 INSPECTION.
8/6/09 12:00:31 THERE WAS NO ODOR OF
8/6/09 12:00:32 MOLD.
8/6/09 12:00:34 >> READ THE LAST SENTENCE.
8/6/09 12:00:37 >> AN INPECKS OF THE
8/6/09 12:00:40 AN
8/6/09 12:00:43 INSPECTION OF THE ROOF
8/6/09 12:00:43 REVEALED NO OBVIOUS HOLES BUT
8/6/09 12:00:46 IF ALL OF THE SUCCESSIVE FLOORS
8/6/09 12:00:48 ARE LEAKING IT SEEMS LIKE I
8/6/09 12:00:50 GUESS THIS IS FOR CODE
8/6/09 12:00:50 ENFORCEMENT.
8/6/09 12:00:52 IT SEEMS CLEAR THERE HAS TO BE
8/6/09 12:00:55 A HOLE SOMEWHERE.
8/6/09 12:00:57 LIKE ON THE ROOF.
8/6/09 12:01:00 >> LET'S ME MAKE IT CLEAR MISS

8/6/09 12:01:29 >> LET ME MAKE ONE MORE
8/6/09 12:01:29 STATEMENT.
8/6/09 12:01:32 THIS IS MISS MUL-HERN SO SHE
8/6/09 12:01:33 UNDERSTANDS EXACT LOOP THERE'S
8/6/09 12:01:34 A SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT IN PLACE
8/6/09 12:01:37 THAT UNDESIGNATED THE
8/6/09 12:01:38 BUILDINGS
8/6/09 12:01:39 AND WE'RE WORKING WITH THAT A
8/6/09 12:01:40 LONG WITH THE CITY SO THAT
8/6/09 12:01:41 OPERATES THE CONSTRUCTION OF
8/6/09 12:01:42 THE BUILDING GOING FORWARD.
8/6/09 12:01:44 WHAT WE'RE INVOLVED IN IS THE

8/6/09 12:02:00 >> YES VERY BRIEFLY JUST TO BE
8/6/09 12:02:02 CLEAR ON THAT, ON THIS
8/6/09 12:02:03 STATEMENT THAT COUNCIL MEMBER
8/6/09 12:02:05 MUL-HERN WAS READING THAT WAS
8/6/09 12:02:08 EVIDENCE OF A HISTORIC,
8/6/09 12:02:10 VERY
8/6/09 12:02:12 OLD BREACH IN THE ROOF.
8/6/09 12:02:14 AGAIN OUR POINT IN THAT
8/6/09 12:02:15 STATEMENT AND THAT REPORT WAS
8/6/09 12:02:17 THAT THERE MAY HAVE BEEN A LEAK
8/6/09 12:02:17 A
8/6/09 12:02:18 LONG TIME AGO AND THERE WAS
8/6/09 12:02:20 EVIDENCE OF THAT BUT IT WAS NOT
8/6/09 12:02:22 AS A RESULT OF A RECENT
8/6/09 12:02:25 OCCURRENCE AND
8/6/09 12:02:27 OUR INSPECTION,
8/6/09 12:02:29 VERY THOROUGH SHOWED NO SIGNS
8/6/09 12:02:30 OF WATER INTRUSION AT ALL.
8/6/09 12:02:32 >> THANK YOU.
8/6/09 12:02:34 >> YOU SAW EVIDENCE OF HOLES --

8/6/09 12:02:39 CALLED
8/6/09 12:02:42 IN THE INDUSTRY SPALLING OF THE
8/6/09 12:02:45 ROOF, THE HORIZONTAL MEMBERS
8/6/09 12:02:48 THAT SUPPORT THE WEIGHT OF THE
8/6/09 12:02:51 BUILDING WERE CONCRETE
8/6/09 12:02:51 WITH
8/6/09 12:02:53 STEEL REINFORCE MEANT AND YEARS
8/6/09 12:02:54 OF WATER INTRUSION WILL CAUSE
8/6/09 12:02:57 THAT WHICH MEANS THE PIECES
8/6/09 12:02:58 OF
8/6/09 12:03:00 CONCRETE WILL CHIP AWAY BUT THE
8/6/09 12:03:02 STRUCTURAL MEMBER ITSELF IS
8/6/09 12:03:05 STILL VERY STRONG, VERY STRONG
8/6/09 12:03:08 SO YOU KNOW WE SAW A LOT
8/6/09 12:03:10 OF
8/6/09 12:03:11 CALCIUM DEPOSITS, RUST ON THE
8/6/09 12:03:13 STEEL MEMBERS THAT WERE THERE
