LUZ Committee: Council Member Schellenberg reviewed the actions of the committee from its meeting.
Mr. Schellenberg announced that he would be offering a floor amendment to 2018-155 (rezoning on Driftwood Creek Drive) to clarify a condition. President Brosche said that 2018-144 and -145 (Comprehensive Plan text amendments) need to be acted on first before 2018-146 (amending Code of Subdivision Regulations); they will be taken up in that order.
Finance Committee: Council Member Becton reviewed the actions of the committee from its meeting. On 2018-171 (resolution supporting passage of a policy designating “hit free zones), the Finance amendment will be moved first. On 2017-769 (code enforcement lien waiver amnesty program), the Finance amendment will be moved first.
Rules Committee: Council Member Carter reviewed the actions of the committee from its meeting. Council Member Schellenberg said that he will ask that 2018-244 (commemorating the life and accomplishments of former General Counsel James Harrison) be pulled from the consent agenda and will ask for amendment to add all council members as co-sponsors.
2018-242 and -248 (resolutions regarding the proposed sale of JEA) may have public comment. President Brosche said that she will be absent from the May 8 meeting and will direct that the bills be deferred in committee next week so that she can be present for the discussion at the council meeting of May 22.
Council Member Boyer directed the council members to a series of boxes in the Bob Johnson green room showing examples of sizes of small cell wireless equipment; the committee is discussing a rule to allow up to 4 cubic feet of equipment to be mounted on the pole, anything larger would be required to be placed underground. She also said that she had received an e-mail regarding the mediation process over the Council’s action on Dockside Estates. No mutual agreement was reached and the hearing officer said that the Council’s decision was supported and well founded and he would not recommend any modification, so the City Council’s action stands.
