Chairman Dennis called the meeting to order and asked the attendees to introduce themselves. Mr. Dennis reviewed the Auditor’s marked agenda which included 6 items marked for deferral, 10 items ready for action (1 requested for emergency approval) and 12 items for second reading and re-referral.
2016-818 (appointing Dr. Rene Pulido to the Health Planning Council of Northeast Florida): the bill will be withdrawn at the request of the Council President as Dr. Pulido is now unable to hold that position.
Chairman Dennis announced that he would be leaving the meeting to deal with an emergency and Council Member Crescimbeni will chair the remainder of the meeting. Appointments and reappointments will be taken up first. In Mr. Dennis’ absence the Special Rules Meeting will be cancelled today so that he can be present at the next meeting to discuss the scheduled topic – public participation at Council and committee meetings. Paige Johnston will distribute two legal opinions on the topic at today’s meeting for review before the next meeting.
