King' s Bay pleased with OUA


By Pete Gawda.
Okeechobee News
There was good news, bad
news and one disgruntled cus-
tomer at the monthly meeting of
the board of directors of the Okee-
chobee UtilityAuthority (OUA). ,
The good news is that 'the
monthly maintenance fee charged
to King's Bay residents has been
reduced for the second time in
two years. In July 2004, OUA and
the King's Bay Homeowners'
Association entered a mainte-


nance agreement 'a hoterN .each

Davidson reported to the board on
Tuesday that actual developers'
agreement signed by developers
totaled fewer than 1,000 units.
"I wish I had better news, if we
had closed with 5,300 we'd be
there," Mr. Larson said.
"I was totally surprised by the
lack of response," board member
Elder Sumner said.
He called the low figure, "a
shocking number."
Mr. Larson said there were vari-
ous reasons why the response fell
short. In some cases, developers
did not purchase the land. Some
developers are going slower. He
attributed part. of the -dismal
response to rising interest rates.
Mr. Larson said one problem is
that banks do not want to issue let-
ters of credit. If a builder was ask-
ing for capacity below a certain
amount, the total payment was
due upfront. If the amount request-
ed was above that number, a down
payment and letter of credit was
acceptable.
He noted that the policy of the
board was to see that any plant
expansion is not paid for by pres-
ent customers.
One option he offered was
downsizing the proposed expan-
sion to 1 MGD.
According to figures presented
.by Mr. Larson, the break-even point
for a 1 MGD plant would vary from,
about 2,700 to about 2,900 units
depending on the construction


options chosen.
"Did we drive too hard a bar-
gain?" asked Mr. Sumner?
"It's hard to speculate," Mr. Lar-
son said.
Mr. Hayford said that most days
the present plant is at 85 percent
capacity. He added that most of the
remaining 15 percent is committed
by developers' agreements.
He said that if there were no
outside help existing ratepayers
would have to pay for expansion.
Developer Curt Lunsford said
that OUA was asking developers to
pay 100 percent up front for a plant
that would not be ready for two
years.
However, he predicted Okee-
chobee would be a bedroom com-
munity for Palm Beach County
:"The growth will come' he
said, "because of the amenities
and infrastructures of Okee-
chobee."
"If you build it, they will come;
he added.
Although he too,. predicted
growth for the area, local realtor
Brandon Tucker said that putting
100 percent up front is risky for
developers.
Board member Melanie Ander-
son suggested looking at other
options such as issuing bonds.
Mr. Larson suggested that devel-.
opers be required .to put up less
money up front with the balance
to be paid over a longer time
Board chairman George Long
was not ready to give up on devel-
oper financing. He was convinced
something could be worked out.
It was agreed that staff would


meet with developers to discuss
options and that at the beginning
of next month's meeting a work-
shop would be held to discuss the
outcome of that meeting.
Turning to another matter,
Robert Foster, who owns property
in Taylor Creek Isles, appeared
before the board to protest what he
considered an injustice done to
him.
He believed he was exempt
from paying base sewer charges
because ,of a letter from former
executive director L. C, Fortner.
His SE. 31st Street lot is vacant
because a hurricane-damaged
mobile home was removed. He
elected to keep the water meter
and pay the base water charge but
never hooked up to sewer when it
became available in that area.
Mr. Foster paid the installation
and capital connection fees that
were assessed to all Taylor Creek
Isle residents for installation of the
sewer system. However, he felt he
should not have to pay a monthly
base sewer charge until he hooked
up to the sewer.
He produced a letter dated
August 11, 2005 from .Mr. Fortner
stating, "Future, bills will not
include the sewer charge."
The consensus of the board
was to go with the accepted policy
that was in place at the time the let-
ter was written. At that time all Tay-
lor Creek residents should have
been hooked up to sewer and
were charged the monthly sewer
charge. They had been previously
been notified in writing of that poli-
cy.


Mr. Foster did not' object to pay-
ing the base charge for water ,
however he felt it was unfair for.
him to pay sewer charges.
"The person who wrote the let-
ter cannot supersede policy. It is
notvalid," asserted Mr. Long.:
Board attorney Tom Conely
concurred that the letter was
wrongfully issued.
Mr. Hayford said he did not
know the circumstances behind
the letter.
"We cannot grant you an
exception and not grant everyone
else an exception," said board
member Harry Moldenhauer.
"Our policy has been if we find
something unfair, we don't make
an exception, we change policy,"
stated Mr. Sumner.
Mr. Sumner suggested the
board use a more user-friendly
envelope for sending out bills.
Mr. Hayford said a temporary
pump is place to pump water from
the Rim Canal if necessary. During
recent hurricanes, OUA had to
pump water out of the Rim Canal
because filters in the treatment
plant were clogged with mud
stirred up by the hurricane.
The board also approved a
finance report for the period end-
ing June 30.
They approved a contract with
Murton Roofing in the amount of
$151, 571 for reroofing and roof
repairs. Mr. Hayford said there was
money in the budge, to pay for
these repairs.

Boaters asked to watch for manatees
OKEECHOBEE Several manatees have been sighted in Tay-
lor Creek between the Taylor Creek Bridge and the drawbridge on

According to Captain Barry 'Chop' Lege, from the Conserva-::

Okeechobee Main Street has designed a survey to be used to iden-
tify the needs of the business community.
Committee members will be delivering the forms to business "
owners located in the downtown local planning area (LPA),"
which is the target district for data input. Businesses outside the'
LPA are urged to participate.

applicant then submitted a site
plan for review by the site plan
technical review committee. At
that time, he again requested that
S.W. 67th Drive be used for ingress
and egress to the mine. The com-
mittee recommended that the
planning board approve the site
plan and allow the use of S.W. 67th
Drive for ingress and egress to the
mine.
The planning board in April of
2006 approved the site plan but
refused to allow S.W. 67th Drive to
be used as access to the mine.
Mr. Daniel is appealing the plan-
ning board's decision to the com-


missioners.
Turning to another matter, com-
missioner will consider an agree-
mnent negotiated with Architects
Design Group for the preparation
of a grant applicant for funding for
the proposed emergency opera-
tions center.
In another public safety matter,
commissioners will consider a site
plan and building drawing for a
proposed new fire station. The
plans are generic and can be used
for later fire stations.
Turning to the agri-civic center,
commissioners will review the
conceptual design and estimated
cost for a proposed midway and
carnival area for the agri-civic cen-
ter. They will also consider a con-
tract for cutting the grass at the cen-
ter.

He remembered the area was
so waterlogged that the only dry
ground was the railroad tracks. At
night, the.cattle .and the cowboys.
would attempt to sleep on the
tracks..
"The train conductors knew,
and they would blow the whistle,"
he said. "The cowboys, who were
also sleeping on the tracks, would


go in front of the train and make
the cows get off the tracks so the
train could go by."
He said he remembers trying to
sleep on the railroad tracks, but not
appreciating all the uninvited com-
pany. "Not only did the cows want
to get out of the water, so did the
worms and snakes and every living
thing," he said.
The mural depicts Haynes'
father, Zibe K. Williams, on his
large gray horse. Around the cor-
ner, a second, smaller mural shows


grandfather Fitz Williams smoking
his pipe and keeping an eye on the
101 Ranch.
Ms. Waldau said Okeechobee
doesn't have a lot of art programs
for young people, so they decided
to involve children in the commu-
nity to participate in the mural.
Main Street held an art contest to
choose ten children to help paint
the mural, giving them the chance
to workwith professional artists.
The young artists also served as
the models for a group of children


in the mural, shown standing out-
side the Gilbert Movie Theater
watching the cattle drive go by.
.Artists involved in the project
included Ms. Waldau, Fawn McNeil
Barr, Maureen Burroughs, T.J. Con-
don and Jillian Warren. Junior
artists who helped paint the mural
included Lindsay Crum, Rocky
Huddleston, Taneisha Mitchell.
Rachel Muros, Brianna Skye
Nunez, Jack Radebaugh, Hannah
Sadler, Donny Sheldon, Nick Valca-
niant and Gabrielle Velie.

Bush: Florida crime rate down


TALLAHASSEE -Fl6rida's
crime rate dropped for the 14th.
straight year in 2005 to its lowest
mark since 1971, Gov. Jeb Bush
said Tuesday.
Bush praised tougher laws and
increased financial support from
the Legislature for the 3.7 percent
drop in the crime rate in 2005.


"This report shows that staying
tough on crime works," Bush
said.
The crime rate is compiled by
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement. It decreased from
4,855 crimes per 100,000 people
in 2004 to 4,677 crimes per
100,000 people last year.


In 2005, the state's law
enforcement agencies reported
838,063 crimes compared to'
850,490 in 2004, a 1.5 percent.
decrease.
The governor, however,
acknowledged growing concerns
about the number of murders in
the Jacksonville and Orlando


areas, where there have already
been 120 homicides this year.
Despite that sobering concern,
violent crime statewide dropped
0.6 percent in 2005 while nonvio-
lent crime decreased by 4.2 per-
cent. Violent crimes are murder,
forcible sex offenses, robbery and
aggravated assault.

BIG RIGS: I want to comment about the July 9th Speak Out call
complaining about truck parking. The trucker's job is not an easy
one, and there is never an easy place to find to park your truck.
While you're sleeping in your nice cozy bed, they are out there bust-
ing their butts having sleepless days and nights trying to get the
loads on time, for you. Whether you need items in stores, or medi-
cines, or whatever it may be, leave the truckers alone, so they can
do their jobs.

TAKING RIGS HOME: As a retired truck driver, I take exception to
the Speak Out call regarding drivers taking their rigs home. The
writer mentioned a "risk" to the entire neighborhood. The real risk
is the cars and pick-ups driven by the general public running 20-25
mph over the speed limit in residential areas, seemingly oblivious to
the fact that children may be playing and not paying attention to
traffic. Yes, many drivers take their rigs home; occasionally to wash
and maybe run the vacuum through them; I did this for 25 years.
Some drivers' personal vehicles are miles and miles away at their
home terminal. If the person who has a problem with this would
take a moment and look around his home at the appliances, dishes,
furniture, etc, he (or she) may just realize, that all this was brought
to you by a truck driver.

LETTER WELL WRITTEN: Mr. Pritchard's letter was well written
and fair. The lesson here should be personal choice to lead one's
life within the law. There seems to be a rush to micromanage and
control.

CHRISTIANS: One caller said if you believe in gay marriage and
abortion you are not Christian. There you have it. If you do not con-
form, you will be ostracized and forced to live someone else's stan-
dard. How is that different from the Taliban?

DEBIT CARDS: About the debit card hold, Yes, I too have had a
gas station put a $75 hold on my debit card for getting a $20 pur-
chase of gas. Guess what? I just don't go back to that station.

DRIVERS BEWARE: This message goes out to the guy who had
road rage, and nearly ran me off the road, apparently because he
didn't want a woman driving in front of him. He pulled out a shot-
gun, and told me he was going to kill me, just because I got over in
front of him in the lane. I.called the police and got no response. No
one ever found him. I could be dead now, somebody saved me.
Another driver came up before he could shoot me. I was almost,
shot because of a road rage driver. He didn't get found, he didn't get
arrested, he still home free, and he could do this to another driver.
There is a man out driving a white Ford pickup truck extended cab, I
would guess about a 1995 model truck, with serious road rage. Dri-
vers should watch out.

DEBIT CARDS: I want to thank the newspaper for the informative
articles about the debit card issues. The key it seems is to not use a
debit card unless you can punch in the personal identification num-
ber or "pin". This means you may have to go into the station instead
of paying at the pump. I'noticed some stations are putting'in the ter-
minals at the pump so that you can use a debit card and punch in
the pin. The issue of the additional money being "held" or "frozen"
only applies to using the debit card as a credit card.
