2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 19, 2018 Antorris WilliamsThe Sun Belle Glade City Commissioners approved enhancements for the municipal airport at the July 16 meeting. The meetings agenda included updates about the citys economic and employment opportunities, infrastructure enhancements, and resolution approvals. The commission ers adopted two resolutions that involved en hancements at the municipal airport in Belle Glade. One resolution focused on entering a joint participation agreement with the State of Floridas Department of Transportation (FDOT) to fund Taxiway Charlie Design Ser vices; and the other resolution was approved to construct a new sewer line at the airport in collusion with FDOT. After the discussion many opportunities for new business and employment opportunities were presented in the city managers report. I am happy that the city is bringing in new employment opportunities, Uzuri Collier, a Belle Glade resident said. Often times people do not have jobs because they lack experience or expertise so I applaud the city for meeting the people where they are by making these options available, she added. City Manager Lomax Harralle presented several updates about enhancements to the city. Residents can look forward to continued improvements to infrastructure because of grants and projects in place. Over $1 million will be allocated to begin improvements to inner-city sidewalks in 2019. Mr. Harrelle also noted that the city secured a $380,000 grant to x city drainage in areas of Avenue H, Southwest Avenue K, Southeast Third Street and Northwest Third Street. The aforementioned streets are being restructured because they have the potential to ood or have ooded in the past. Mr. Harrelle said that the countys water and waster water project is in its third year and moving along swiftly. Investing about $100 million in the project, the county continues to restore the cleanliness of the area and repave roads when the work is done. City parks are also getting a new look. The 1 sales tax will be used to integrate old playground equipment with state of the art equipment at Lake Shore Park and Hand Park and the parks at Northeast 21st Street and Southwest Fourth Street will receive new equipment. It is projected that $1 million will be invested into city parks. The City of Belle Glade stepped up for our kids to enhance the parks for the youth, Mayor Steve Wilson said. The whole objec tive is to have something for our kids to do recreation wise and its effective immediate ly, he added. Belle Glade has various infrastructure and economic development projects underway.

During the presentation to Ms. Andrews, the mayor called her a part of the citys family and that, having a key, she never again needed to let anyone know when she was coming. This is indeed a great honor, said Ms. Andrews. Ive never received a key to the city, and so to be able to get the key to the City of Pahokee means everything to me. Ive always thought I belonged here ... and so I didnt need this key to know that I be longed here ... but certainly receiving the key ofcially ... it tells me now that I truly AM here, I am a part of you. I love the city of Pa hokee ... and as we build Pahokee, its part of my dream. Im going to be here for you. Thank you so much for this honor. In other business, the city commissioners: Unanimously adopted a resolution setting their tentative millage rate for the 2019 scal year, required under the states Truth in Millage law, at 6.5419 mills, and their rollback rate of 6.2271 mills. One mill equals $1 of tax for every $1,000 of a propertys assessed val uation. The rollback rate is the tax rate with which the city could raise the same revenue as was garnered from the previous years tax rate, taking into consideration the change in the value of the properties in the city. Passed a resolution authorizing the campground, marina, prefabricated restroom, pavilion and landscaping agreement between A. Genesis Construction LLC and the City of Pahokee in the amount of $118,700. It was a last-minute add-on to the agenda due to a looming state deadline to get all the projects involved in the marina/campground/restaurant renovation under contract in time to fulll state grant requirements. Learned from City Manager Chandler Williamson that the citys Back to School Bash will be Saturday, Aug. 4. Weve already contacted most of our sponsors, and I think we anticipate having about 20-25 vendors, providing health, wellness, community services, etc. (information) ... and we have all of our volunteers back again this year. Its from 10 until 2 this year and it will be at the high school, he said. PAHOKEEContinued From Page 1 approximately 5 5.

Obituaries Barbering program puts PBSC a cut and shave above Special to the Glades County Democrat BELLE GLADE A new barbering pro gram is about to get underway on Palm Beach State Colleges Belle Glade campus, and the timing couldnt be better. With many licensed barbers nearing retirement age, and millennial males clamoring for the latest hair and beard styles, the demand for new barbers is growing fast. PBSCs Barbering program launches Aug. 23, and space is still available in the evening program. Those interested may attend an information session on Tuesday, July 31, from 4-6 p.m. at the TEC Building Patio on the Belle Glade campus, 1977 College Drive. Prospective students may also visit www. palmbeachstate.edu/programs/Trades-BG for program details or call 561-993-1175. We are so excited to bring this new opportunity to the Glades, said Dr. Gloria McAllister, program director for Postsecond ary Adult Vocational certicate programs on the Belle Glade campus. There will be many job opportunities for our barbering graduates to work in existing businesses or to start their own shops. In fact, local barbers concerned over the lack of new talent asked PBSC to start the program. The Belle Glade campus already had Cosmetology, Facial Specialty, and Nail Technician programs housed in a brand new salon environment. With this fully equipped facility in place, the barbering program took shape. This program is great for men and women, and we have both genders enroll ing in the program, McAllister said. More and more shops are unisex, and both groups need to have knowledge of the full range of services. By adding barbering to our existing cosmetology offering, we can prepare pro fessionals for all clientele. In the 20-month program, students gain expertise in hair cutting and styling, beard and mustache trimming, shaving and skin care services, and hair coloring and chem ical processes (hair relaxing and permanent waving), as well as barbershop manage ment. As a public institution, PBSCs low tu ition rate saves in-state students thousands of dollars over private schools. In addition, nancial aid is available. Program graduates are eligible to apply for their Florida Barber License and sit for the required licensing exam. Upon passing the exam, graduates will become licensed barbers, qualied to perform all barbering services in Florida. I really want to expand my career choices, said Judi Austin, who recently enrolled. The barbering program will give me that opportunity. I cant wait for classes to begin.

Speakers from local, state and federal law enforcement agencies served as subject mat ter experts. The sessions focused on issues relevant to the Glades such as violent crime, gangs and domestic violence. Discussions also included crime prevention and re-entry for youth. An added feature was a three-hour discussion that afforded participants an op portunity to speak with professionals rep resenting all aspects of the criminal justice system and the Safety and Justice Challenge funded by the MacArthur Foundation. Other topics included cybercrime, and participants took a tour of the jail. Information on what to do when stopped by law enforcement was also provided. The Citizens Criminal Justice Academy provides information for those who want to learn more about their participation in keeping communities safe. The sessions inspired one attendee to join the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Ofce Ex plorers program. This was the third consecutive year that the academy was conducted in the Glades. The CJC would like to thank citizen leaders and program sponsors, Palm Beach Coun ty Sheriffs Ofce and Healthier Glades, for their participation.
