The Pahokee City Commission on Tuesday, May 29, voted unanimously to approve three contracts for parts of the renovation project at the lakefront recreational complex; to engage two companies that had bid on paving and stormwater improvements at Glades Citizens Villa and on improvements at Commissioners Park; and to hire a contractor for exterior beauti cation work at the old Pahokee High School building. City Manager Chandler Williamson, asked by Mayor Keith Babb to give an overview of the agenda, explained: This special meeting is solely for providing the commission recommendations on two bidded contracts and to also move forward with some resolutions approval for a lot of the renovations at Pahokee marina. As we all know, there have been some revisions to how we are approaching the Pahokee marinas renovations. Weve long been doing some due diligence here in ensuring that we have the right folks on board now to get these renovations done in an expedient manner. There may be an additional conversation with the state as these projects come on line and we get into them at full speed. One or two of these projects may go beyond the July 1 completion date. I am very comfortable that we will be OK in that respect as we move forward. But today, we want to get these projects moving forward.

The lake right now is the second-highest it has been in this decade for this date, she explained. It is higher than it was when Hurricane Irma hit last year. She said that, as high as the lake is now, if it had a large spike of water from a hurricane as happened with Irma, the lake looks pretty bad. In the month following Irmas landfall, the lake rose by 3.5 feet due to heavy runoff from the north.

Brenda Hoots Supervisor of Elections Hendry County, Florida May 10 & June 7, 2018 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 7, 2018 missioner at the close of the meeting, pro fusely thanked City Attorney Gary Brandenburg for his work in preparing all the contracts, resolutions and paperwork that were required. First, Weekley Asphalt Paving Inc. was hired to do street resurfacing and stormwater improvements in Glades Citizens Villa for a total of $630,000. Mr. Williamson explained: It has been a long time coming for that community. As you know, it has been subjected to severe ooding in particular types of weather. I just want to be clear that ... it wont address all of the ooding, but the ooding that is on the streets and the public areas, access to peoples driveways, access to get out of the community that will be addressed signicantly, and theyre prepared to move forward. Next approved was a resolution authorizing the Commissioners Park improvement agreement between Lynch Paving & Construction Inc. and the city costing $501,980. This is another one of our projects that was funded by the state Legislature in 2017, the city manager said. The work includes renovation of the tennis courts, replacing their surface, netting, seating, fencing and lighting; construction of a new basketball court; additional parking, resurfacing of current parking areas and construction of a gateway entrance and trafc ow structures; installation of Americans With Disabilities Act-compliant, age-appro priate playground equipment; restoration and repair of the storm-damaged recreation shelter, including installation of an attachment to increase seating capacity and reno vation of attached restrooms; replacement of antiquated water park elements; and installation of LED safety and security lighting. For the marina/campground/restaurant project, commissioners also approved: a resolution authorizing campground and marina painting and renovation upgrades in an agreement between Aruba Construction & Roong Inc. and the city costing $121,250 for two new bathrooms at the south end plus pressure cleaning, sealing, re-caulking, patching and other repairs to the exteriors of the campground ofce, restaurant, restrooms and fuel dock building; a resolution authorizing the campground and marina security and network system agreement between Hilios LLC and the city costing $39,204 for the installation of more than 20 cameras and related monitoring equipment; and a resolution authorizing a campground and marina petroleum fueling pumps agreement between Petroleum Marine Construction LLC and the city costing $54,860. Also, a resolution was approved autho rizing the Old Pahokee High School Beautication Agreement between A. Genesis Construction LLC and the city costing $69,500. The work will include demolition of existing plywood and installation of new wood; chemical treatment of mildewed areas to be painted; pressure-cleaning the exterior; cleanup and sealing of areas to be painted; caulking of windows and doorframes as needed; patching of cracks and painting of the entire building, including new installed plywood window frames. Also, two large banyan trees and one large palm will be removed from the grounds; a well system will be installed for irrigation, and 20 sable palms and 10 live oaks will be planted as well, along with shrubs around the base of the building. After the votes on the marina projects, Commissioner Benny Everett III asked City Attorney Brandenburg whether the contrac tor the city previously had on board in a de sign-build arrangement, Technomarine Ser vices Inc. of North Palm Beach, had repaid $125,000 that had been advanced for the project. They refuse to give the money back. We have a lawsuit that I have drafted, that probably will be led today or tomorrow, he replied. The commission had authorized the lawsuit at its previous regular meeting. Mayor Babb summarized at the end of the meeting: Im pleased with the progress that were making. The majority of these funds were secured in 2017, and these projects are now coming on line. We canceled our last regular commis sion meeting just to participate in the Pa hokee High School graduation, he contin ued, but we did commit to coming back to take care of some business that was coming before us that needed to be expedited, and were going to continue to do that. Mayor Babb added, pointedly: We (the city commissioners) have to be the cheer leaders rst for ourselves, and get that energy out to the community, to let them know that were excited for things to come. As our city manager has indicated, in the next six to nine months we should see a major transfor mation of Pahokee, so lets start the cheer ing for that and push these items forward. Comprehensive AIDS Program and three years as board president. He also served 15 years on the board of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County Inc. Mayor Babbs professional career spans over 38 years as the west county supervisor for the Palm Beach County Division of Senior Services. This year, he was also nominated and selected for inclusion in SHE Holdings LLCs 2018 Calendar and Resource Guide, Palm Beach County fourth edition. This calendar recognizes and honors 12 black men annually in Palm Beach County who are making a positive impact on their community. In addition to a plaque, the mayor was presented with a ag own over the U.S. Capitol in his honor by Dan Liftman, an aide to U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings. The Pahokee Chamber of Commerce congratulates Mayor Babb for his outstanding accomplishments and achievements. ready above schedule, Lt. Col. Reynolds continued. The WCAs south of the lake are already at capacity from rainfall in that basin even though water is moving south to Everglades National Park and Florida Bay at the maximum ow possible with the existing water control structures. The corps started releasing water east through the C-44 Canal and west into the Caloosahatchee River on Friday in an attempt to slow the rise of the lake. Weve had the wettest May on record, said Lt. Col. Reynolds. The month of May brought 11.01 inches of rainfall to the South Florida Water Management District, nearly triple the annual average of 4.04 inches, according to the SF WMD website. The next three-month prediction is above-average rainfall, she added. The National Hurricane Center predicts one to four major storms this year. I think we can anticipate releases will continue for some time, said Lt. Col. Reynolds. She told the coalition that the work on repairs to the Herbert Hoover Dike continue. Its going well, she said. Everyone is talking about are we on track to complete in 2022? she said. Yes, we are on track, but there is a lot of distance between now and 2022. Lt. Col. Reynolds said the presidents budget for 2018 includes $82 million for the dike repairs, and the State of Florida allocated $50 million. For 2019, the president has requested $96 million, she said. That still needs an appropriations bill. Lt. Col. Reynolds said the project will need additional money in 2020, 2021 and 2022 to stay on track for completion in 2022. When we dont get the federal funding on time, it affects the schedule to award contracts, she added. Its not over yet, she continued. Letters from Senator Nelson and Senator Rubio said that congressional intent was for it to be fully funded, she explained. There are projects across the nation competing for that nancing, she added. She said funding for other water projects is uncertain. The presidents budget for scal 2019 is putting emphasis on nishing projects that are already under construction, she said. This could mean delays for projects that are still in the design and planning stages. We all know the importance of the entire CERP (Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan) program, she said. Every project in CERP is an important part of the overall plan, she added. The hard part is there is not enough funding to authorize all of the projects across the board. Every time we want to add something, there is that elephant in the room of what we are not going to do, she continued. She said the addition of the EAA reservoir to the Central Everglades Planning Project will mean there wont be federal funding for something else.

PBC had record-breaking revenues for scal 2017 Special to The Sun WEST PALM BEACH Palm Beach County Clerk and Comptroller Sharon R. Bock presented her annual State of the County address on Tuesday, May 1. The re port summarized the nancial position and operating results of Palm Beach County in scal year 2017. Key nancial highlights include: Property tax revenues set a new record high, close to $1.1 billion. Sales tax collections of $88.2 million set another revenue record. The new 1-cent sales tax provided $80 million to the county for infrastructure proj ects during calendar year 2017. The county collected a record-breaking $48.5 million in tourist development taxes. This year again, Palm Beach County ex perienced record high revenues in all areas, said Ms. Bock. However, sound scal man agement demands the county proactively plan for the next cyclical economic down turn. Clerk Bocks recommendations to the county commissioners include: Develop a strategic plan for future budget shortfalls, including a board review of high-level scal policies debt, fund balance and reserves and formal board adoption of these policies. Develop clear and concise guidelines and expectations for county departments annual budget-trimming exercise. The presentation is based on our inde pendently audited Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) produced each year by the clerk and comptroller, said Shan non R. Chessman, chief operating ofcer of nance at the clerks ofce. As the inde pendently elected comptroller, Clerk Bock serves as Palm Beach Countys chief nancial ofcer, treasurer and auditor. A separation of powers between the elected policymakers on the board of county commissioners and the clerk and comptrollers scal authority ensures that the publics tax dollars are man aged and spent according to public policy.

The BCME designation is awarded to districts that demonstrate out standing achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students. The Palm Beach County School District is one of only 563 school districts in the nation and one of only three in Florida to receive this distinction. To qualify for the Best Communities designation, the district answered detailed questions about funding, graduation re quirements, music class participation, in struction time, facilities, support for the mu sic program, and community music-making programs. Responses were veried with school ofcials and reviewed by The Music Research Institute at the University of Kan sas. This award recognizes that Palm Beach Countys district schools are leading the way with learning opportunities as outlined in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The legislation guides implementation in the states and replaces the No Child Left Be hind Act (NCLB) which was often criticized for an overemphasis on testing-while leav ing behind subjects such as music. ESSA recommends music and the arts as import ant elements of a well-rounded education for all children.

8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 7, 2018 Glades receives $1 million for behavioral health initiatives Special to The Sun WEST PALM BEACH Palm Healthcare Foundation Inc., Palm Beach Countys com munity foundation for health, is expanding its community-driven, place-based funding approach, Healthier Together. The Healthi er Glades initiative will receive a total of $1 million over the next ve years from Palm Healthcare Foundation (PHF) to focus on behavioral health. PHF uses this localized grant-making strategy to solve Palm Beach Countys most complex healthcare issues, neighborhood by neighborhood. The foundation is nancing ve Healthier Together programs. Healthier Glades is the sixth community and the fourth to tackle behavioral health as its health focus. Supporting the strong commitment of residents and leaders from Belle Glade, South Bay and Pahokee to work together, PHF is proud to announce an infusion of $1 million over ve years to tackle the root causes of behavioral health issues facing the residents of all of the Glades communi ties. In addition to traditional health services and resources, they will address health is sues such as neighborhood safety and race equity. Community Partners Inc. will serve as the scal agent for the initiative. We are thrilled to be launching Healthi er Together in the Glades. Ensuring that the program reects the diversity of the Glades residents is of utmost importance for true, lasting and transformative change. Health ier Glades will develop a shared vision, common goals and action plans, creating solutions together, said Patrick McNamara, president and CEO of Palm Healthcare Foundation Inc. Inger Harvey has been named the proj ect director of Healthier Glades. Ms. Harvey is a highly skilled professional who brings more than 25 years of success to creating shared visions; facilitating cooperation among diverse groups with conicting agendas; and engaging nontraditional part ners. Most recently, she was employed at the Palm Beach County Ofce of Commu nity Revitalization. Ms. Harvey thrives on taking ideas to an implementation phase, tearing down walls, building strong part nerships and ensuring that the voice of each community is at the table. Her goals have always been to build on neighbor hood strengths that result in sustainable community change. Inger Harveys passion and willingness to listen and learn from resident-lived expe riences is critical to the success of the ini tiative. She models the concept of leading from behind, empowering residents at the grassroots level to foster innovation in com munity engagement. These are outstand ing traits for a project director for Healthier Glades, said Mr. McNamara. Special to The Sun/ Courtesy photo Inger Harvey, the new project director of Healthier Glades. Non-county residents will need to make an appointment for services Special to The Sun WEST PALM BEACH On June 4, Tax Collector Anne M. Gannon announced she will require residents from outside Palm Beach County to make an appointment for driver license services at her agency begin ning July 1. The new policy is in direct re sponse to the closure of the Deereld Beach Department of Motor Vehicles ofce on June 29 and long wait times at Palm Beach County tax collector ofces. Approximately 100,000 non-Palm Beach County residents seek driver license services at her ofces each year. Out-of-county residents directly affect the agencys ability to provide ex ceptional customer service to Palm Beach County residents. My rst priority is to the Palm Beach County taxpayers, said Ms. Gannon. I want to make sure our residents receive the attention and level of service they paid for and deserve. Beginning July 1, anyone living outside Palm Beach County must schedule an ap pointment to receive driver license services by visiting the county tax collector ofce where they intend to seek service. A limited number of appointments will be available, so staff urges these taxpayers to not wait until the last minute. Driver license renewal notices are mailed 90 days prior to the expi ration of the license. When I was rst elected in 2006, Palm Beach County was home to 700,000 people. That number has doubled to 1.4 million Palm Beach County residents today, said Ms. Gannon. We are evaluating a num ber of ways we can continue to provide exceptional service to Palm Beach Coun ty residents. Requiring appointments for non-county residents is a solution we can implement almost immediately.
