—THANK YOU CITY COUNCIL OF 12 2 14
I am very pleased with the new Port Orange city council which met 12 2 14
Congratulations to Scott Stiltner in his first appearance as city council person and congratulations to Drew Bastian as the new Vice Mayor. In my opinion I saw a new Drew Bastian and it pleased me.
Overall, the whole city council impressed me tonight.
Thank you Scott Stiltner for getting the city council to vote yes on keeping the property of the old police station and to consider how best to utilize the building and property for city use.
Thank you citizen Newton White for pointing out that the state should be involved in the flooding problem of Dunlawton Ave.
Thank you Bob Ford for getting the city council to vote yes on a twofold resolution regarding the Dunlawton Berm Flood Issue. It was 5 to 0 for a yes vote. I will send a personal e mail to Don Burnette for a small qualification as to why he was voting yes. No big deal, but I want Don to realize that I noted his qualification.
Thank you citizen Noftall for also adding info to the investigation that Ford asked for, that a detailed accounting for money spent and deducted on the berm issue should be had.
Thank you citizen Mike Gardner for pointing out that a perspective of a certain “impropriety” is implicit regarding the whole issue of the berm, the change order, and lack of communication to the city council members of the details in the change order.
Thank you Scott Stiltner for your opinions and comments about the future of the golf course.
Thank you City Manager Harden for letting us (or at least me for the first time) know that there are deed restrictions on the golf course as to what the city can and cannot do with the city golf course.
Thank you citizen Noftall for pointing out that the city’s comprehensive finance accounting is still lacking from the month of August and on?
The POPD is planning to get video cameras which scan license plates and automatically enter the tag numbers into a data base which will report if the vehicle is wanted for a crime.
The POPD is planning to get video body cameras for its officers.
The best way for me to do justice to summarize how productive and informative this Port Orange City Council meeting of 12 2 14 was is to reproduce video of segments on my web site. I hope to get around to that, tomorrow afternoon, 12 3 14.
–Thank you all
