The meeting was called to order at 3:31 p.m. by Chairman Yarborough.
Janice Billy reviewed the marked agenda, which included 5 items to be deferred (2 as a result of deferrals in the Rules Committee earlier in the day), 3 items ready for action and 3 items to be read a second time and re-referred. She noted that 2008-28 (amending Groundwater Resource Management chapter of the Ordinance Code) will have an amendment to add several provisions relating to golf courses and their use of fertilizer.
Chairman Yarborough stated that he will ask the committee to schedule a visit to the city jail at some point during the year as part of its oversight of criminal justice issues. He also would like to continue the practice started by last year’s PHS Committee of scheduling several community meetings in locations around the city to give the public an opportunity to express their thoughts and opinions on the Jacksonville Journey program directly to the committee.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 3:35 p.m.
