Question answered byTHE VILLAGE COUNCIL Question: Should the Village have an Assistant Manager? Answer: Local leaders say it’s worth considering. As the Village Council was in the midst of the important task of hiring incoming Village Manager Andrea Agha last month, Council member Brett Moss sponsored a May 8 discussion on whether to create an Assistant Manager position. His proposal was to have the Assistant Pdqdjhu#=oo#wkh#uroh#ri#Yloodjh#Ilqdqfh#Director, which is currently vacant, and also assume other responsibilities. “I think there could be some positives in having an Assistant Manager,” Moss said, noting any employee has strengths and weaknesses, and having both a Manager and Assistant Manager would allow the Council to balance those out and create a team of employees who complement each other. “As much as we zdqw#wr#=qg#wkh#shuihfw#Pdqdjhu#fdq glgdwh/#zh!uh#qrw#jrlqj#wr#=qg#d#shuihfw#candidate,” he noted. Moss added having an Assistant Manager would also give the Village a succession plan. Council member Gary Gross applauded the suggestion. “I totally agree with you,” he said, noting he thinks putting the Assistant Manager in charge of the Ilqdqfh#Gluhfwru!v#uhvsrqvlelolwlhv#lv#ideal. “It could save us an incredible amount of money – the job could pay for itself.” Council member Luis de la Cruz, meanwhile, said he sees room for both a Ilqdqfh#Gluhfwru#dqg#Dvvlvwdqw#Pdqdjhu1#Gh#od#Fux}#vdlg#kh!g#olnh#d#Fklhi#Ilqdqfldo#R?fhu#w|sh#wr#wdnh#wkh#uroh#ri#Ilqdqfh#Director, while the Assistant Manager would handle other managerial responsibilities. “I think there’s plenty of work for both of them,” he said.

Currently, Key Biscayne’s proposed budget for next year is based on keeping the millage rate at 3.0. But some residents, including a former Council member and a current candidate for Mayor, say that rate needs to go up to cover all of the needs facing the Village. Former Council member Alan Fein earned applause from audi-ence members at the Council’s June 26 budget workshop when he made the case for a tax increase during public comment. “It costs money to take care of the things we need to take care of. It costs money to guarantee the sustainability of our lifestyle on Key Biscayne,” he said. “I would propose to you that it’s time to think about and act on an infra-structure bond issue that should be built into this year’s budget.” Vshfl=fdoo|/#kh#flwhg#surmhfwv#olnh# stormwater drainage upgrades, buried utilities, hardening for sea level rise, beach restoration and land acquisition. He said with both long-term interest rates and sea levels rising, now is the time. Fein said the Council could issue a 30-year bond at the current 3.66 percent interest rate without a referendum. It would cost taxpayers 45 cents per $1,000 of assessed value, which adds $450 to the annual tax bill for the owner of a $1 million home – roughly 3 percent of the total annual tax bill. #Wkdw!v#wkh#gl

THE ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM Marking a channel for kiteboarders to access the open waters shouldn’t be a huge undertaking, local leaders say – so why would it cost $55,000 just for planning and permitting? Local leaders have asked Village Manager John Gilbert to explore the options and plan to hold a special meeting Tuesday, July 17 at 9#s1p1#wr#pdnh#d#=qdo#ghflvlrq1 The issue confounded Village Council members June 25 as they reviewed a proposal from EAC Consultant for permitting and engineering work to install buoys to create the channel. Earlier this year the Council approved an ordinance that established the channel near the former Sonesta Beach Resort site. It needs to be marked with buoys, and the proposed contract stated the Village needs county, state and federal permits, a process that is estimated to take six months. The contract with EAC came in at $55,000 for design, environ-mental permitting, procurement support and construction support services relating to channel mark-er buoys. On June 25, Gilbert said that is due to the many layers of oversight and permitting, which drove the cost up: “I feel this is a fair presentation, and I ask for your support.” But Council members expressed concerns about spending so much on such a simple task. “That is just absurd to me,” Council member Luis de la Cruz, who is a candidate for Mayor, said. De la Cruz said he would have a hard time supporting the contract without more information and dvnhg#derxw#jrlqj#wr#dqrwkhu#=up#to get another proposal. #Lw#vhhpv#=fwlrqdo/$#Ylfh#Pd|ru# Frank Caplan agreed; and Council member Gary Gross said the project should be as simple as dropping two concrete blocks as anchors and attaching the buoys to them on a line. He suggested wkh#Yloodjh#jr#wr#d#frqwudfwru#=uvw#rather than going to the engineer =uvw=##Zkhuh!v#wkh#hqjlqhhulqj#lq#this? I just don’t get it,” he said. Gilbert said his sense was also that the project was fairly simple dqg#rrdwlqj#ghylfhv##wkh|#duh#large cylinders that have to be screwed into the ground. He said they are the same as the buoys the Village used to mark a swim-only }rqh#r<#Ql{rq#Ehdfk1 “The price is the price for the product that we’re getting,” Gilbert said, apologizing for providing incorrect information about the complexity of the proj-ect the previous night. “These are substantial, and they do require permitting.” But Gross still wasn’t convinced. He noted the kiteboard channel is not a navigational channel, so the Village shouldn’t need such a substantial product. He added the kiteboarders probably wouldn’t even want such large buoys, as they could get injured if they run into them: “There’s got to be a way to do this that’s not nearly so elaborate,” he said. Gilbert said Blankenship did mention another option of work-ing with the University of Miami on the permitting, which would be cheaper but could take longer. Ultimately, Council members said they want the Manager to explore that option and all others – including a simpler installation process or a lower cost for EAC’s proposed scope of work – and come back with a proposal at the special meeting. Local leaders said they will make a decision at that session, as they need to move forward one way or another. Council member Katie Petros noted the Council created a policy for kiteboarding and needs the channel to implement and en-force the policy, and, as Caplan remarked, “This is shockingly expensive, but if this is what this project is going to cost, we need to do the project.” #Zh!uh#rq#wkh#krrn/$#Jloehuw# agreed, noting when the kite-boarding season starts in October, the athletes will be looking to use the channel and the Village will need to enforce its rules.

THE ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM One of the biggest questions surrounding buried utilities involves how to pay for the project, and local leaders took a step toward answering it last month. Residents are expected to get more information about that question and the project in general in October when consultants are expected to report back on funding and a project master plan. The Village Council agreed June 25 to a $100,000 deal with Raftelis for a utility undergrounding special assessment methodology study that will recommend how the Village can equitably divide the cost of the estimated $30 million project. On a related note, Council member Brett Moss updated his colleagues on Underground Utility Task Force meetings. Moss is the Council liaison to the task force. Local leaders had deferred a vote on the Raftelis agreement June 5 because they wanted more time to review information provided by the task force. At the time, former Vice Mayor Michael Davey, the chair of the Underground Utilities Task Force and a candidate for Mayor, said the board reviewed two com-panies for the study. “We came to the conclusion, and it was a close vote, frankly, that Raftelis was the best choice,” Davey said. “He was presented to us as the guru – the guy who created the formulas for these special assessments.” He said Raftelis did have the higher bid – just under $100,000 compared to around $75,000 for wkh#rwkhu#=up##exw#wkh#frp pany agreed to a reduction from a higher fee and the task force felt its expertise would serve the community well on the complex project. On June 25, Moss said he agrees with the task force’s recommendation, noting determining how to pay for undergrounding utilities is one of the most important decisions involved in the huge under-taking. “They looked at both proposals very closely,” he said. “The main reason the board voted for Raftelis was that the project manager of that com-pany was highly recommended; was one of the founders of the methodology.” Moss noted some properties zloo#ehqh=w#iurp#exulhg#xwlolwlhv#more than others; and if the cost was covered by general funds, some residents will pay a much higher share based on who has a longtime Homestead Exemption and who does not. Therefore, he said, Raftelis needs to look at all the properties in the Village, ghwhuplqh#gl

THE ISLANDER NEWS • #tasteofkeybiscayne THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2018 PAGE 18 # tasteoeybiscayne There is no modern machinery or packaging equipment at Piononos, just a couple of ovens and a crew of dedicated bakers, many of whom have worked there for years and do everything by hand. Fruits are meticulously cut; all deserts are prepped and packaged by hand. Owner and operator Maria Luisa Benavides proudly states, “Our processes are pretty archaic, but the total focus is on creating a perfect and tasty dessert every time.” She wudlqv#wkh#vwd<#khuvhoi#dqg#her goal is simple: bring joy through her baking.

Their most popular delicacy is the pavlova de fresa (walnut meringue with dulce de leche or Nutella whipping cream and strawberry). Customers drive from as far north as Palm Beach for the delicious deserts and what Maria Luisa calls “the Piononos” experience – excellence in baking and customer service. They are in the Galleria Mall, 328 Crandon, Suite 217. They accept special orders and deliver. You can reach them at 786-4886770. They are open Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Name: Maria Luisa Benavides, proprietor and operator Question: Where were you were born? Answer: Lima, Per Q: Where do you live now? A: For the last 24 years, my husband and partner at Piononos, Cesar Ubillus, and I have resided in Key Biscayne with our kids, Isabella, 18 and attending college in Savanah, Georgia; and Alejandro, 15, who will attend LaSalle High School. Q: How did you get your start? A: Sin querer (by accident) at home! I always had an aptitude for baking, it’s something I love. When Isabella was born, I started baking to be productive and make some money, and it turned into Piononos. This store opened six years ago. Q: What is your “secret to success?”A: To do something you love! Have the perseverance to succeed. Q: What’s your proudest moment?A: There are many, like when a customer tells you they love your desserts, and when I Piononos makes some of the most delicious desserts – all by hand See PIONONOS, continued on page 19 Restaurant Maria Luisa Benavides, the matriarch and master chef at Piononos.
