Oakland Park As he
launched his campaign for
city commission, Michael
Cam, 52, told supporters the
evening was bittersweet for
him.
"It reminds me that Mayor
Allegra Webb Murphy will
soon complete her eight years
of service. She says she wants
to retire, but it will be a hard
seat to fill."
Cam is running in the
March 8 election for Seat 2,
now held by Murphy, and he
has her support.
"It does my heart good to
see Cam launch his cam-
paign," Murphy said. "I'm
happy he's moved back to the
community where he grew

Tam O'Shanter owner offers half his land for ballfields


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN H RITER
Deerfield Beach -Dist. 3
Commissioner Marty Po-
pelsky literally "carried the
ball" Tuesday night when
he set forth the premise that
developer Ralph Little should
donate half his available
property to the city, 48 acres
for athletic fields. Popelsky
said he sympathized with
residents of Crystal Lake
who showed strong support
for Little's plans to build a
98-acre cemetery, but pointed
out that Broward County has
required a donation of public
recreational space when golf
courses are closed.
"The loss of open space
must be mitigated by parks...
it's almost mandated by
Broward County," Popelsky
said. His remarks made the
arguments posed by Crystal
Lake homeowners almost

Golf Course, but was closed
after Hurricane Wilma did
extensive damage. Little
told residents years ago that
there was no chance he would
reopen the golf course.
That was the situation Little

found themselves in after

matched the pleas of Crystal
Lake homeowners against
residents from other parts of
the city who made the case for
more ballfields.
"Would your client
dedicate a portion (of his
land)?"Popelsky asked Mele.
The attorney replied, "Our
preference is what we pre-
sented, but we could go with a
park and cemetery if we don't
have enough votes ... you
decide which half you want."

Adding her support for ball-
fields, Mayor Peggy Noland
said, "This is an opportunity
we need to look at seriously.
There are 8,000 young chil-
dren living here. No other area
has this much open land."
Commissioner Bill Ganz


continued the momentum
saying, "Normally when a
developer and residents get
together, it's a slam dunk. But
my constituents were angry
when they found out there
would be 80 acres lost. We
can fit three ballfields there.
"To walk away from a once-
in-a-lifetime opportunity in a
city that is built-out...we can't
walk away from that.
Vice Mayor Joe Mayor said,
'1We should mount a plaque to
this man (Little)."
Mele said one parcel of
about 48 acres will be deed
restricted for cemeterv/memo-
rial park use, the other match-
ing parcel for public parks.
The donation doubles
Deerfield's current ballfield
inventory. Parks and Recre-


ation Director Bob Harbin
called it "outstanding. He
opted for the acreage nearer
Military Trail because the
other parcel is adjacent to a
large condominium.
The number of ballfields
will depend on how much of
the land is left in open space,
Harbin said. "People also
need to picnic and fly kites."
A regulation baseball field re-
quires about two acres. Soccer
fields much more.
Harbin said the fields can
be buffered "quite well" with
planted berms and advances


in lighting have reduced the
"spill" into adjoining neigh-
borhoods. "They are really
not a problem anymore," he
said.
Crystal Lake residents had
mounted a cohesive effort
to maintain the entire area
as a memorial garden, citing
the county landfill, a nearby
immigrant holding center
and Green Road as impact
enough on their community.
Ballfields, they said, would
devalue their properties, and
bring in noise and traffic.

Santa's wish came true
years ago and the Pompano

chauffeured Santa on a deco-
rated truck ever since.
Until last week
"All of a sudden we didn't
have it this year," said Larson.
Pompano Beach Fire Chief
Harry Small explained. "The
fire union president said that
the Santa ride violated the

there for years, so we resched-
uled Santa to ride on one of
the antique fire trucks, but
Santa was not comfortable in
that unit. He asked if he could
ride in the BSO fire truck.
BSO agreed until the union
presidents talked to each
other. At that point, Santa
needed a ride and got it from
Broward Sheriff's Office's
SWAT team.
Said Sandra King, Pompano
Beach Public Information
Officer, "The city made sure
that Santa's ride was never in
jeopardy. With BSO's help,
we simply provided a differ-
ent type of emergency vehicle
that would make Santa's

Taxpayers Need to Stop

Subsidizing Waste Management

Subsidiaries: Learn the Economics

of Garbage in Broward County
By Michael Ryan


Letters



Social Security is working, leave it

alOne, says reader
To the editor,
As a retired financial planner specializing in retirement planning, the idea of a
tax holiday for Social Security contributions is a really bad idea.
The President and others who are supporting the measure should know that
the Social Security "tax" is a worker's retirement savings. We advised our cli-
ents that they should be saving 10 percent of their income for retirement.
If workers are given a tax holiday, they've essentially reduced their retire-
ment savings. I understand that the Federal government says it will make up the
difference, but I think that sets a very dangerous precedent of intrusion into the
mechanics of Social Security, which is one of the most successful govemment-
run programs ever established.
It opens a possibility of privatizing Social Security which would be another
boon to corporate Wall Street. If Social Security had been privatized by the
Bush Administration, retirees would have been wiped out with the economic
collapse. I urge Americans to contact the President and Congress to leave So-
cial Security alone.

Thanks .
Maggie Davidson

Continued from this page
The current contract, in simple terms, requires cities to deliver all the garbage
to Waste-to-Energy ('1WTE") plants in Broward County operated by Waste
Management subsidiaries.
Sadly, the current discussion regarding this contract is mired in the bumper-
sticker slogan of "no-bid contracts" and discussions about the sheer amount of
money involved over a BILLION dollars. But, the slogans and discussions
miss entirely the real tale of woe and ignore the enormous corporate subsidy we
as taxpayers are being forced to accept.
You see, over 20 years ago, a sweetheart subsidy deal was struck:
The County would provide land to a private, third-party operator.
The residents would fund completely the construction of the two Waste-to-
Energy plants (including one on the land provided by the County).
Taxpayers would fund the debt service on that construction.
Taxpayers would guarantee an exclusive relationship for all the garbage to
be delivered there.
Taxpayers would be penalized if too little garbage was delivered.
Taxpayers would pay even more if the plant operators could not generate as
much revenue from the sale of electricity as predicted.
By the way, taxpayers actually did have to pay millions of dollars because
electricity sales fell below a threshold.
I almost forgot. The companies operating the plants would own the facilities
taxpayers paid for and built!
Sounds like a great deal ... for someone. No risk, all funded by taxpayers,
ownership of the facilities retained by the operators, and no disclosure of the
profitability.
Rodstrom: We Were Bamboozled
Recently, Broward Countv's Vice Mayor John Rodstrom stated that the tax-
payers gave away ownership of the WTE facilities due to "...some lawyer or
someone who wasn't paying attention because they would have given us that
facility if we had asked for it 30 years ago. They would have done anything to
finance them to have the management contract and that project for 30 years, but
we never asked for it at the end which was a big mistake on our part."
Now, the contract will expire. What do we, as taxpayers, do with our garbage
if we do not want renew the contract with Waste Management subsidiaries?
Well, we could put all our garbage in trucks and haul it around the state/coun-
ty/country (likely to other Waste Management-related sites) and dump it in land-
fills. But, we would need to build smelly transfer stations in our own backyard.
Or, we could dump the garbage in our own cities and create more "trash
mountains."
Both options are environmentally unpalatable, socially undesirable, and likely
OV011 more expensive than the current contract proposal from Waste Manage-
ment subsidiaries.
We could try to build yet more of these WTE facilities, but then there would
be capacity challenges with competing facilities in Broward County, not to men-
tion the decade of construction and the hundreds of millions of dollars necessary
to build.
That is why the criticism of "no-bid" is not really relevant to the analysis.
All the cities generally know what it will cost to build transfer stations or haul
garbage to wherever they want.
Yes, there is some variability in costs, but the costs are the costs are the costs.
When the sweetheart deal was struck twenty years ago giving away ownership
of the facilities we paid for entirely, our choices were locked mn if we owned
the facilities then we could bid the operators.
Not surprisingly, the proposed pricing under the new Waste Management sub-
sidiary contract would be just under what it would likely cost our City to haul
our garbage out of the area. We can bid out the hauling all we want, but we can
not change the economics of transportation and garbage.
Proponents of the new contract exclaim our rates will go down dramatically
under the proposed contract. True. You know why? Because the bonds neces-
sary to pay for the construction of the WTE plants are paid off and, therefore,
taxpayers no longer have to pay a portion of their garbage fees to pay debt
service on plants we do not own!
Waste Management Doesn't Want To Reveal Profits
But Waste Management didn't want negotiators for the cities to leamn how
much profit Waste Management subsidiaries are still making off this taxpayer
deal.
Recently, during a City Commission meeting, as Mayor of the City of Sunrise,
I called to the podium a Waste Management representative. I wanted to know
exactly how much profit the Waste Management subsidiaries are making off the
taxpayers, considering we built their plants, we have virtually no options, and
they own virtually all the alternative options.
The Waste Management representative refused to disclose the numbers.
Actually, he acted surprised our Commission would want to know how much
Waste Management is profiting off a project where taxpayers own part of the
land and paid for the construction of the facilities.
Fortunately, we have some idea as to the profitability. As has been reported,
in 2008 alone, the two WTE plants received $94.3 million in garbage fees and
$79.3 million from the sale of electricity. It has been reported the return on


MAYOR, CITY OF SUNRISE

Over the next few weeks, the fate of garbage in
Broward County will be decided.
Actually, that's not true. The fate of our gar-
bage was likely decided over 20 years ago, when a
sweet-heart deal was struck that gave away the very
facilities our taxpayers built. This give-away made
certain our choices today would be limited.
The 20-year contract to provide for the disposal
of garbage county-wide through a cooperative
agreement amongst the cities will soon expire.

By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Volunteering for a good cause began
early for Ashley Scarry. When her
grandfather, whom she called Papa,
died at 69 three years ago, she decided
to honor his memory by promoting
awareness ofAlzheimer's disease and
the hope for a cure.
She has since done some creative
fund raisers such as a jump roping
event, a car wash and a piano concert
-all to benefit NE Focal Point, 227
NW 2 street, Deerfield Beach.
The Pelican interviewed her on De-
cember 13 just before she was recog-
nized by The City Of Deerfield Beach
for her active volunteer service and
promotion ofAlzheimer's awareness
and fund raising for the Alzheimer
Day Care Center. Although she lives
with her family in Miami, this has not
deterred her from visiting NE Focal
Point and volunteering in person on
Flower Friday and on several other
occasions to entertain with impromptu
concerts .
Donna DeFronzo, director of Senior
Services at the Center, calls Ashley-
"A very special young lady. She
even designed a t-shirt "Alzhelmer
Awareness--Memories Should Last
A Lifetime" and the shirts are for sale
as an ongoing fund raiser for us. She
has also created an Alzheimer brace-
let band inscribed with, "A reason to
hope." We are grateful for her enthusi-
asm, spirit and giving heart."
Ashley opened her fundraisers with
this speech: "Three years ago a lov-
ing husband, father and grandfather
passed away because of a disease
that kills thousands each year. That
horrible disease is called Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's is a disease that slowly
eats away your brain making you ~
incapable of remembering memories,
names and yourself. People think
this disease only strikes people in
their 70's or 80's, but my Papa, Tom
Scarry, was diagnosed at the age of
59. Since then it was different but still
the same. Papa and his wife, Liz rode
bikes, ran in races and even marathons
and spoiled their grandchildren. Papa
never let the disease get in his way of
life. He lived like it wasn't even there.
After a few years, the disease kept
getting worse. We were never able to
find a medication to cure his type of
Alzheimer's, but he had a lot TLC to

Point.


at age 69, but he left scientists an idea
of a way to find a cure for the type
of Alzhelmer s he had. Papa wasn t
just my Papa. He is my hero, and I
really miss him. I thank everyone for
participating with us today."
Ashley had her Bat Mitzvah on Nov.
6, but she still continues promoting
and volunteering for NE Focal Point
Alzhelmer s Day Care Center when-
ever her busy schedule permits.
"My jump rope fundraiser was a
demo," she explains. "Twelve friends
performed for a crowd of over 100
people. The piano concert was just
done for family and friends. The car
wash was my favorite. Seven of my
friends joined me.
We came up to Deerfield and
washed cars all day. We met an amaz-
ing lady whose name was Jane. She

"I chose to open my first practice in
Pompano Beach at 1600 E. Atlantic
Blvd. because this is a city with a fu-
ture and I want to be part of the excit-
ing growth I anticipate here," explains
this young doctor of internal medicine.
"I'm on staff at both Holy Cross and
Imperial Point so that I can follow and
care for my patients when they are
hospitalized. Of course my goal as a
doctor is to keep them from needing
to be hospitalized. Like all doctors of
internal medicine, my focus is diag-
nosing, preventing and treating adult
diseases. We can communicate with
patients in English, Spanish and Portu-
guese.

patients ask him is to explain the dif-
ference between an M.D. and a D.O.

Asked about his soft cover book
titled 'The People's Diet,' he shrugs
and smiles saying, "I found myself re-
peating the same simple concepts over
and over to patients so I decided to put
it all in print as a helpful guide to good
health. My book is easy to read and
understand. It covers my approach to
both obesity and health. Skinny on
the inside is more important that skin-
ny on the outside. Being thin is not
always being healthy. My approach to
weight loss is unique in that pounds
off is not the entire goal. It is geared
to improve a healthier heart. The goal
is to lose inches around the waist and
improve tolerance for exercise. Every
day tasks done more vigorously can be
very effective and fit more easily into
one's work or hobbies."

it responds very favorably to cheap
medications and simple measures
such as weight scales. Those with this
diagnosed condition must weigh them-
selves daily. A gain of three pounds

.rOunders' Days is on again
By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
DEERFIELD BEACH -Buoyed up by community support,
the Founders' Days' Committee has decided to go forward
with the 64th annual event but will have to do so without finan-
cial backing from the city.
Commissioners decided Tuesday that Community Redevel-
opment Agency funds should not be used for the three-day
celebration which is held at the beach.
Commissioner Sylvia Poitier said that although it would be
a "disaster" to lose Founders' Days, the committee should not
expect city funds and instead should get sponsors. "If we give
to one, we have to give to all," she said.
Commissioner Bill Ganz said using CRA money for special
events does not create a good perception.
Two weeks ago, the committee voted not to hold the event
because of lack of funds but their announcement brought an
immediate outpouring of support President David MacKay
said. The city has cut all festival funding which leaves the
committee in need of about $100,000 to stage the mid-February
street fair and parade.

On Tuesday, Commissioner
Julie Carson, who cam-
paigned on employee rights in
2010, made a last ditch effort
to get at least those Wilton
Manors offcers paid, but
Carson's request got only one
vote--her own.
The Festival, now broke and
in debt to both the officers for
$5,114.50 and a tent ven-
dor for $18,000, disbanded
recently.
Mayor Gary Resnick spoke


against the idea explaining
that for the past few years,
city employees have had no
raises or incentive bonuses.
He went so far as to suggest
the Police Benevolent Asso-
ciation, or PBA, should pick
up the tab.
Off-duty officers take as-
signments throughout the
country through the PBA.
"WYhat's the PBA's budget,"
Resnick asked. "I don't know
if they're hurting. We pay
them very well [referring to
the police officers]. I'm talk-
ing about our residents."
Although Carson lacked
support, she says some good
came out to the issue. Stiafng
the city will be more diffcult.


Arson explained that new
rules are in place to secure
permits for festivals, includ-
ing the requirement of a bond
to cover all costs from the city
to local vendors who supply
the festival.
The Stonewall Festival
commemorates early riots in
the United States that led to
gay rights.
The Stonewall riots were a
series of spontaneous, violent
demonstrations against a po-
hece raid that took place in the
early morning hours of June
28, 1969, at the Stonewall
Inn, in the Greenwich Village
neighborhood of New York
City. They are frequently cited
as the first instance in Ameri-


can history when people in
the homosexual community
fought back against a govern-
ment-sponsored system that
persecuted sexual minorities,
and it became the defining
event that marked the start of
the gay rights movement in
the United States and around
the world.

Wilton Manors Residents
and supporters of The Rev.
Bill Collins, director of the
Poverello Center in Wilton
Manors are set for a fund
raiser in honor of Father Bill.
The need arose when Father
Bill was in an accident which
left him without a car.
The Poverello Center offers
assistance, food and more to
people ill with HIV/AIDS.

Oakland Park Commis-
sioners in Oakland Park have
joined the ranks of munici-
palities taking no action on a
proposed interlocal agreement
(ILA) on solid waste disposal
offered by the Resource Re-
covery Board.
With little discussion at
Wednesday's meeting, com-
missioners unanimously
agreed to follow a staff
recommendation to take no
action until more information
is available.
W1e recommend that you


defer indefinitely. We'll bring
it back as the situation war-
rants," City Manager John
Stunson told commissioners.


Stunson said the Brolvard
County Commission failed
to take action at their meet-
ing this week. "If the County


Commission doesn't have a
special meeting, without their
action there is no agreement,"
Stunson said.
Oakland Park is a mem-
ber ofthe current Resource
Recovery System through an
agreement that expires July
2, 2013. The system pro-
vides contracted incineration
facilities, transfer stations, a
contingency landfill, mate-
rial recovery facility and
other collection programs. It
is funded through incinera-
tor tipping fees paid by those


using the plants,currently 23
cities and Brolvard County.
In backup materials pro-
vided commissioners, David
Womacks, city Public Works
Director, wrote, "It is a dif-
ficult long-term decision to
approve the amended ILA,
which equates to an ap-
proximate $38 million,
10-year contract for the
city of Oakland Park. Unless
there are additional mitigating

DC4 offers residents of NW
Pompano Beach. The center
helps people file online ap-
plications for unemployment
and medical benefits, com-
municate with the Department
of Children and Families as
well as giving them assess to
government documents.
"I just found out there
was an issue with money on
December 9," Joseph said re-
ferring to a letter from the city
informing him the block grant
would not be coming his way.
The grant was not awarded
this year because city officials
say board member Emes-
tine Price voted for the DC4
funds from her position on
the Community Development
Advisory Board, a conflict


of interest. Price has since
resigned from the CDAC and
Changing Directions becomes
eligible again for the funding
in a year.
"We've lost funding for the
last three years. We've not
had any funding for the after
school program," Joseph said.
"But we have been offering
about 60 percent of our ser-
vices on a limited level."
The surviving programs
from a once-thriving center
that several years ago posted
a 990 form showing revenues
of $462,255, are now three:
the summer camp, the year
round music program which
has just received a $30,000
grant from the AD Anderson
Foundation and the help cen-


ter which now may close.
Joseph said revenues in
2009 were probably no more
than $100,000.
Founded in 2003 to provide
services to the Haitian com-
munity, Changing Directions
4 Youth expanded to serve
the entire NW community in
2008 and ran such programs
as Project New Hope, after
school and summer mentoring
for youth, summer camps with
emphasis on math and science
or music, a youth leadership/
career development program
which gave teens a three -day
experience at Nova Univer-
sity SE and a summer music
program funded by the Com-
munity Foundation.
Joseph said his staff still
volunteers to work

said the signing bonus, when

"I hear comments that

and Miramar has gone out for

The City of Fort Lauderdale

The newly opened Dawghouse eatery is Pompano

Beach's only source of authentic Chicago style hot-dogs


By Malcolm McClintock
FOOD TVRITER
Located directly across the
street from the Pompano golf
course, the recently opened
Dawghouse restaurant has one
primary objective: to provide
high-quality, authentic, all
beef, Vienna brand hot-dogs.
"Vienna dogs are the only
true Chicago hot-dog. In fact-
all our ingredients, including
the sauerkraut come from
the Vienna Company," says
co-owner Dennis Pearl. an
affable entrepreneur with over
20 years experience in the
restaurant industry.
His business partner, Steve
Mack, is a retired New York
City police sergeant who
jumped at the opportunity to
open a restaurant specializing
in this classic all-American
specialty. W~e also serve
the N.Y Style Dawg with
mustard, "pushcart" sweet
onions and sauerkraut, '
says Mack with a friendly
nod to his former Big Apple
stor nr sprols ewe have

hease bed unneablee Wn n
were hoping to get maybe 25
customers our first day and
ended up with well over 100.
The next day \ve had nearly
250!" says Pearl who was
amazed to discover that the
Pompano crowd has a serious
soft spot for good hot-dogs.
"This is my newest fast
food place. I have been here
4 times already this week "
says local resident Brian
Doyle who, coincidentally ,
is the president of the Dog
Pack of Pompano Beach, a
group that helped establish
the first exclusively-for-dogs
park nestled in the south-east
quadrant of the golf course
parking lot.


The most sought-after
hot-dog is, of course, the
Chicago style Dawg. Loaded
with mustard, pickle, tomato,
onion, neon relish, celery salt
and sport peppers on a soft
poppy seed bun, this work
of art instantly transports
the diner to the streets of the
Windy City.
"I play regularly at the
nearby Pompano tennis center
and am often quite hungry
after a match. I have been
here 3 times in the last 2
weeks because the Chicago
style hot-dogs are quite
authentic and very tasty, '
says Hillsboro Beach resident
Stuart Simmonds.
Other variations include
the Chicago Chili Dawg,
the Jalapeno Cheddar Dawg
and the homemade Coleslaw
Dawg. Available alone or
as part of a combo meal

'fire sale' came about when
information distributed on

cost at $50, instead of the new

new contract, Oakland Park
officials believe that the return
'vould still have been 46.5
percent.
So, what do we do?
Reject The Deal and
Renegotiate .
If cities that make up more
than 20 percent of the current
tonnage reject the deal, then
it is scuttled and sent back to
the drawing board. There are
many cities that have already
agreed to the deal. They were
enticed by "bonus" payments
for signing early a strategy
which is drawing criticism as
well .
But, with 16 percent of
the tonnage, the City of
Fort Lauderdale may be the
deciding vote as to what
happens for the whole county.
I believe \ve need to
collectively reject the plan
presently proposed until ive
receive a better understanding


entities off taxpayers-funded
construction and demand a
real plan from the County to
break this virtual monopoly
that is costing the taxpayers
enormously. Reasonable
return for reasonable risk
seems fair.
But, remember, we own
some of the land, we paid
for the debt service, and we
paid for the construction
ofthe plants. There are
other criticisms of the deal,
but the biggest concern is
the volume of profit our
residents are subsidizing and
the utter refusal to permit
any disclosure ofthe profits
we are guaranteeing from
facilities \ve built but gave
away ownership.
Those cities that have
already agreed to the deal
should act decisively and
quickly to re-consider their
support. Those who have not
yet decided should strongly
consider what this deal means
for the taxpayers.
In the end, I personally
believe Waste Management
is banking on our lack
of meaningful disposal
alternatives to prevent real
reform and transparency.
For taxpayers, it appears
that if ve do not stand up
now we will unreasonably
continue to subsidize Waste
Management profits at a
time when our residents can
least afford such "waste"
management.

Antonio likes to pitch and her
twin sister Brooke is a catcher,
so their parents Jose and Karla
went looking for the rest of
a softball team. What they
created may be a phenom in the
world of youth sports: eleven
10- year- old girls who in
little over a year have become
the fourth-ranked team in the
country according to the US
Specialty Sports Association,
USSSA.
This weekend the Deerfield
Beach Sharks will compete in a
tournament in Pembroke Pines
and if their season record so far
remains in play, should come
home winners.
"Our defense is incredible,"
Karla Antonio said this week.
"Every position is strong.
We've been allowing only one
run a game.
The Sharks offense isn't so
bad either, averaging nine runs
a game. The last two games
were won on the 10-run-rule
and at 22-0 for the fall/vinter
season they are undefeated.

According to Antonio, the
Sharks' early days were not so
promising.
They started off practicing in
the fall of 2009 at a school mn
Coconut Creek, but then were
tossed offthat field. For awhile
they \sent to Quiet Waters Park
and hit pop ups in a grass. WUe
called ourselves the homeless
team," Antonian Rsecretio

Manager Blaise Leone came
to the rescue and found them

where they have been ever
since. Antonio credits the
players' dedication to the sport-

snook added protection during
next spring and summer's

encourages everyone to handle

to help ensure their survival
upon release.
Snook regulations apply to

and federal waters off Florida,
and no person may possess
any snook caught during
snook closed seasons.

City helps John Knox secure tax-exempt bond


By Marise Estime
PELICAN TVRITER

Pompano Beach-
Commissioners voted
unanimously Tuesday to assist
John Knox Village to secure
a $40 million, tax-exempt
bond the major portion of
which will pay back $30
million of a 2002 Brolvard
Health Facilities Bond. The
additional $10 million will be
used for improvements in the
Village .
"The 2002 bonds were
insured by Radiant Insurance
and they \sent belly up
because they invested in the
housing market," said John
Gillespie, attorney for John


the bond.
John Knox Village is
listed as the fourth highest
residential/institutional ad
valorem taxpayer in the
city. "We pay property tax
here in Pompano Beach.
In fact \ve are one of the
largest taxpayers in Brolvard
County," said John Gillespie.
The $40 million bond will
be issued in two phases, $30
million now and $10 million
next year slated to be used for
several renovation projects.

they borrowed in 2002 from
the county, why can't they go
to Brolvard County to get the
monev? This is what I call a
toxic bond."
John Knox Village has a
triple B+ bond rating. "This
is hardly a junk bond,"
said Gillespie. "The best
hospitals have B+ bonds. It
is considered an investment
bond. This is the third bond
that \ve have had and there
has never been a default on
payment. There is no risk to
the city and the bank."
Sibble told the commission
that non profits have to
partner with cities to sell
bonds. The tax-exempt
status of the bond saves the


community money because of
the lots interest rate, she said.
According to Sibble, the
bond documents have been
thoroughly reviewed by the
staff and the city attorney
to insure the city will not be
responsible if the retirement
village defaults on the loan.
"The city carries no risk in
helping the organization,"
said Sibble. "They are solely
responsible to the bank."
City Attomney Gordon Linn
said, "The city is not liable for
this. If the city had a liability,
\ve would have a referendum
before the people. But ve
don't have a liability."
Sibble said John Knox has
met all the criteria to secure


Knox Village. "We have now
COme before the commission
to help us create a new bond."
The city's finance director
Suzette Sibble said helping
the retirement community
secure this bond will be a
win-win situation. "They
have been operating in the
city since 1967. They employ
650 people and serve close to
1000 residents," said Sibble.
Resident Stan Toran had
concerns about the bond
agreement. "Why are you
trying to help an organization
that is serving less than one
percent of the population?"
said Toran. "I don't think the
city should be giving them
this opportunity. The money

Ketchem. "This whole deck of
cards could start falling."


deal. Cities have until late
January to sign up for the
agreement which includes a
signing bonus." In the case
of Wilton Manors, the bonus
us $120,169 is the contract is
signed prior to Jan. 1.
Green says that deadline
will also be extended.
Cities that were part of the
original agreement 20 years
ago [See related commentary
on page 6] have the option to
contract for their own solid
waste removal, but the county
agreement depends on most
cities to sign.
Russell Ketchem, recycling
specialist for Pompano Beach,
says Pompano declined the
original agreement with the
county 20 years ago and
retains the lowest rate in
the county for solid waste
disposal.


Pompano Beach residents
pay monthly rates per unit. As
for hazardous waste, Ketchem
says Pompano pays about
$95,000. The city also supplies
residents with recycling
bins. That cost averages
about $5,000 annually. Had
Pompano not stepped away
from the original agreement,
Ketchem says the city's total
bill for all services could be
"well over $2 million."
However those cities
included in the contract
receive a percentage of the
profits from the county's
recycling program from
Waste Management and
Wheelabrator. The bonus
figures vary on the amount of
tonnage .
But those caveats aren't
enough to lure Pompano
Beach or the other four cities,


Pembroke Pines, Parkland,
