11.25 percent tax
hike for 2008
By Frances Zannoni
Hillsboro Beach Commission-
ers have approved the town's 2008
proposed budget. The new budget,
totaling $4,281,270, reflects an 11.25
percent increase over last year's bud-
get of $3,763,052.
The millage increased to 2.6121
from last year's rate of 2.2498.
"Taxes are 12.41 percent over the
roll back rate," said Hillsboro Beach
Finance Director Robert Lange. "This
means people are going to see a slight
increase in their taxes depending on
the value of their home."
"I'm convinced that it's the best that
we could do," said Hillsboro Beach
Vice Mayor Dan Dodge. "We had to
put together a realistic budget so we
didn't have to go into reserves."

It's been seven years since the
county approved the Pompano Beach
East Community Redevelopment
Agency, or CRA, proposal to renovate,
update and design the city's beach
area to attract tourists, business own-
ers and residents to its destination.
Yet, the last crane spotted at the
beach was lifting the final slab to the
top of WCI's Oceanside Residences at
803 N. Ocean Blvd.
WCI was to be the anchor for
redevelopment at the beach, but the
luxury condominium units are mainly
empty even after prices were slashed
shortly after the company declared
bankruptcy earlier this year.
The East CRA is more than the
beach area. It focuses on 158 acres of

Proponents want rede-
velopment to hype up human
traffic for local business and
to attract more business own-
ers to the Avenue.
For six years, most CRA
activity centered on building
consensus for the area. City
commissioners sought pub-
lic input on everything from
landscaping to street benches
and street lamps.
Anxious beach residents
feared a population over-
load with proposals for more
condominium units. The
beach nearly ended up as the
home for the Fort Lauderdale
Swimming Hall of Fame,
and one developer came very
close to building two condo-
minium towers on the city's
two parking lots east of the
Intracoastal Waterway. When
the city changed its mind in
the middle of negotiations, the
builder sued. Only recently
did that lawsuit come to an
end with the courts finding on
the side of the city and releas-
ing the parking lots for public
Now those same lots
will house a new library, a
new firehouse, a new and
improved pumping station, a
parking garage and some pas-
To get things rolling and

director, Robert Franke, to
pick up the momentum for

signed from his $107,000 job
after nearly one full year of
overseeing the project. He
cited "new endeavors" in his
And while to some that
resignation could be the "per-
fect storm" to kill CRA hopes,
just the opposite is happening.
Jack Rogerson, CRA ad-
visory board chair, is already
lobbying the city to get a new
CRA director in place.

Deerfield Beach Commission tires of beach property negotiations
calling land 'overpriced', owner says he'll privatize the sand
By Judy Wilson
Deerfield Beach Commis-
sioners have abruptly halted
efforts to raise the funds need-
ed to buy an expensive piece
of beach property after they
failed to obtain a $310,000
With another $310,000 in
hand from Broward County's
Open Space Bond Fund, the
city had been trying to meet
the $600,000 purchase price
placed on the 50-foot strip by
owner Pete Boinis.
When that attempt failed
last month, City Manager
Mike Mahaney applied for
another state grant in the
amount of $200,000, and
Tuesday night he asked
commissioners to approve a
Department of Environmental
Protection grant request for
up to $50,000, bringing him
close to Boinis' asking price.
But Mayor Al Capellini
Unhappy with having to
deal publicly, the mayor said,
"He'll just wait to see if we
get the $200,000. You're tell-
ing him we'll meet his price.
As a taxpayer, I find this
deplorable. Even grant money
is our money."
On Wednesday, Boinis
was equally distressed. "That
beach will be blocked off.
I have a great amount of li-
ability there. I've been 1,000
percent helpful to the city, and
I have been patient for over a
year," he said.
The 50-foot strip of sand
lies adjacent to and south of
the fishing pier and partially
beneath the pier restrooms
which are in need of major
repairs. It totals 11,000 square
feet and has been vari-
ously appraised at between
$670,000 and $735,000. Cur-
rently, Boinis said, it would
probably appraise out at

Boinis said when the state
grant failed to materialize in
September, Parks and Rec-
reation Director Vince Ken-

$200,000 from another grant
source and asked him to wait
it out. "I told him I would sit

Pompano Beach needs to hire new
CRA director to keep momentum
going on several projects
After seven years of planning and waiting, Pompano Beach business owners
and residents should be seeing some results of the Community Redevelopment
Agency's, or CRA, work.
With $5 million available for funding projects, now is a perfect time to let
those people who have worked so hard, believed in the city's plan and seen
businesses in the meantime, unable to withstand the absence of customers, to
get the concrete turning at the beach.
Since the idea, as District 1 Commissioner Barry Dockswell says, is to start
public improvements now to entice new development, it is imperative that a
new director come on board as soon as the right person is located.
This week's loss of Robert Franke in that position could mean more years of
do-nothing and frustration.
The CRA needs an ambassador to meet with business owners and explain how
important it is for them to work alongside the CRA to renovate their businesses
as public improvements are implemented.
Plans to widen the sidewalks and encourage outdoor dining will be a boon for
restaurants near the ocean. Shade trees along the sidewalks will also encourage
The CRA director is the one person who focuses on the CRA, reports to the
city and acts as a liaison to the CRA advisory group.
It may take weeks or months to find the right person to take on this task, and
that could easily create the inertia that has haunted the CRA for years.
The city commissioners can step in now and hire a project manager for the
purpose of moving the plans along. Locating grants, applying for permits and
keeping enthusiasm high for an active tourist, dining and beach front area is
Some have suggested that the city manager should head up the CRA as its di-
rector, but we and others feel the directorship is a full-time job, not another title
to be tacked on someone who already has a full-time job.
The CRA projects like river walks, sidewalk dining, parks, destinations,
libraries and civic centers require enormous energy and dedication. That can
never happen if the full-time job is taken over by a full-time employee.
The best thing Pompano Beach can do for its taxpayers is to fuel up the
economy. The East CRA cannot afford to run on fumes.
Get the search going. Start advertising for a new CRA director.

Soggy weather couldn't
dampen the enthusiasm of
dents who turned out to learn
more about an Adopt-A-
Street program now getting
under way in town.

program. Volunteers work to
remove litter in participat-
ing cities, Carrie Kashar,
special project coordinator,
Mayor Roseann Minnet, Lau
who organized the town's mac
Greenfest and urged participa- Bo
tion in Adopt-A-Street, said
she was pleased with the turnout,
noting that 20 streets had been ad-
opted. "Next year will be bigger
and better," she said.

Through the program, groups
and residents agree to adopt half a 7
mile or more of a street in Bro-
ward County and remove the litter
four times per year for two years.
The county provides organiza-
tional help and cleanup supplies.
Among those signing up at the
kickoff event Saturday were Hal Carrie Kashar, special project coordinator with the

"We care for the city. It's our
home," Hal said. He added that the portal area is "always kind of a mess with
people dropping off their beer cans and coffee cups."
Buster Celestino, a resident of Ocean Colony condominium on A1A, said he
walks every morning from his home to the Sea Ranch Lakes shopping center.
"It disturbs me to see people throwing things right out of their car. We need
somebody to do something about it," he said, adding that's why he signed up
to volunteer for the program.
Tom Villata of Ocean Colony also signed up. He supports the effort of the
mayor and the town, adding, "It's important to us today and for the future of
Kashar said this was a good start for Lauderdale-By-The-Sea's program.
Generally, each volunteer or group is responsible for a half mile area. She said
safety issues will be addressed at an upcoming commission meeting.
Members of the Terra Mar Civic Association agreed to adopt the entire
At a recent town commission meeting, Commissioner Birute Clottey and
Vice Mayor Jerry Mclntee said they had had complaints from residents about
the placement of Adopt-A-Street signs in their neighborhoods.
Mclntee said he was being hammered with calls. He said no permits were
issued for the signs and said the signs were illegal.
Town Manager Esther Colon explained that she and staff had reviewed the
code, and there is an exemption for informational signs. The signs are not il-
Minnet said some of the signs went up haphazardly, and some were not
placed in the right areas. She said the commission could elect not to have
"The program is a good program, but why have more visual pollution?"
Clottey asked. "There shouldn't be any signs. We're sending the wrong mes-
sage that we can't take care of our own property and have to have others come
in and pick up our trash."
Commissioners passed a motion to remove the signs except in those areas
where residents choose to have the sign in their yard.
Kashar agreed that too many signs went up, and they went up too quickly
and incorrectly. "You don't need 100 signs,", she said. The town is only
slightly littered. The sign issue is being worked on. "It may be there will be
only one sign installed at Jarvis Hall," she said.
She said assignments can't be made along A1A because it is a state road.
Toby Lopez, volunteer outreach coordinator, staffed a booth for the Kids
Ecology Corps. She said the group goes to schools and educates students
about environmental issues.

Reducing water bills
premature commission says
By Judy Wilson
There will be no more discussion of lowering water rates
in Deerfield Beach for at least three months. Commissioners
put the matter to rest temporarily after City Manager Mike
Mahaney said he anticipates a $350,000 shortfall in the water/
sewer account based on decreased water consumption and big
increases in the cost of electricity and chemicals.
"It's way premature to consider a rate rollback," Mahaney
said. The projected shortfall is based on the new rates which
were raised by 38 percent seven months ago. Mahaney said
he needs at least a year's worth of revenue in order to predict
future income and expenses.
A spokesman for CDM, the city's engineering consultants,
said it would not be responsible to rollback rates now. "We had
thought we might need an additional increase next year," he
Commissioner Steve Gonot has pressed the water rate issue
and Tuesday night he said to CDM, "The problem I have is
inconsistency in your statements. You have new reasons each
time [for rate increase]. Why can't there be a reduction of

"Most come from Co-

now seeing several African
flowers with long shelf lives.
My average fresh flower sale
is between $40 and $50."
"We used to have five
wholesale distributors in the
area. Now we only have two.
I visit them between two and
three times a week to replen-
ish inventory. I deliberately
buy smaller amounts more
often so that my selection is
always fresh. My customers
depend on that."
Fresh flowers have such
a limited life that one must
buy smart. Hamilton says
it's always a guessing game.
"That's why I buy more often
to keep my losses as low as
possible. The most popular
flowers are still roses with lil-
ies not far behind. Customers
like to choose vase arrange-
ments, using a mix of flowers
in happy colors.
Many of her in-store cus-
tomers switch from choosing
fresh flowers to longer lasting
silks, permanent botanicals
or gift items they spot once
they're in the store. Her busi-
est season is May through Oc-
tober when the snowbirds and
visitors are in town. She says,
"The holidays are wonderful
because they're fun, creative
and satisfying to me as a mer-
chant and to my customers as
Hamilton admits that busi-
ness is much harder than it
used to be.
"The big box stores and
chains make this a very com-
petitive business. However,
my edge is personal service.
People like to do business
with someone they know.
Jan Abbo calls Hamilton,
"a great designer. I collect
vintage porcelain flowers and.
antique vases and urns. Dolo-
res designs beautiful, perma-
nent bouquets for me. Cur-
rently, I have fifty bouquets in
my collection, all in elegant
holders. It's a fun challenge."
Hamilton says, "Flow-
ers are addictive. I love the
challenge of making every
arrangement unique. So does
Olga Vera, my assistant."
