Chairwoman Brosche called the meeting to order and asked the attendees to introduce themselves. Ms. Brosche reviewed the Auditor’s marked agenda which included 8 items marked for deferral, 13 items ready for action (2 requested for emergency action) and 16 items for second reading and re-referral. The Chair noted the distribution to the members of a letter received from the St. Johns County Board of Commissioners regarding FEMA reimbursement for Hurricane Matthew damages. The City’s emergency preparedness officials are at a hurricane preparedness conference, so that letter will be discussed at the next meeting. Public Works Director John Pappas will address the committee on adjustments to the stormwater utility fee. The Council Auditor’s report on recently released audits will be deferred to the next meeting as the Auditor’s staff has been consumed with analyzing the pension reform proposal.
2017-88 (closing and abandoning and/or disclaiming right-of-way of Parramore Rd.) will be deferred, but Steve Diebenow representing the applicant will address the committee to explain changes to the proposal.
