President Brosche called the meeting to order and said that due to excused absences, the Council has a bare quorum (14 members) in attendance tonight. She then asked for the committee reports.


TEU Committee: Council Member Ferraro reviewed the actions of the committee from its meeting. Mr. Ferraro asked that 2017-806 be re-referred to the TEU Committee to address new information. Council Member Schellenberg asked that it be re-referred to the LUZ Committee as well.


LUZ Committee: Council Member Schellenberg reviewed the actions of the committee from its meeting.


Rules Committee: Council Member Carter reviewed the actions of the committee from its meeting.


NCSPHS Committee: Council Member Newby reviewed the actions of the committee from its meeting.


Finance Committee: Council Member Becton reported that all of the committee’s actions have been previously covered.


President Brosche announced that on 2018-229 (declaring surplus property on Wilson Boulevard) the Finance substitute will be moved.

2018-266 (allowing golf carts to use streets and multi-use paths) – the LUZ substitute will be moved.

2018-270 (finance-related professional services procurement) – the bill will be re-referred to Finance and Rules  Committees without the committee substitute because there were differences between versions of the substitute handed out at the Finance Committee and the version e-mailed to the committee members.

2018-302 (declaring surplus property on Basswood Street) – the LUZ amendment will be moved.

2018-313 (The District development agreement and incentives) – the Finance amendment will be moved.


Council Member Carter noted that 2018-327 (urging Aaron Zahn to refrain from applying for the position of permanent CEO of JEA) failed in committee and reminded council members to push the red button to support the committee recommendation.


Council Member Boyer said that she will propose a floor amendment on 2018-347 (amending public fees) before it gets second reading and re-referral to committees.


President Brosche said that there will be a brief presentation by JEA on the impending cooling tower implosions at the St. Johns River Power Park this Saturday. She said there will be 3 presentations tonight to the City’s retiring college presidents.
