ADMINISTRATIVE ACTIONS AND CITY MANAGER COMMENTS

COMMENTS BY MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS

 

Commissioner Noland asked residents to apply for the Board of Adjustment.  The problem they are experiencing is in order for a variance to pass, it must have four votes.  If one member is missing and the vote is 3-1, the variance will not carry.  She also asked for volunteers for Fort Riverbend.  Additionally, she asked that the city look into also naming Second Avenue Ed Dietrich Avenue.

 

HOTDOG STAND AT BRANDSMART

 

Vice Mayor Shaddow distributed materials she received from Carl Vitale.  Mr. Vitale asked if he could place a hotdog cart at Brandsmart.  Some of the proceeds would be donated to Kids in Distress.  He has permission from Brandsmart.  She suggested that he consider donating some of the proceeds to the Girls and Boys Club or the Tower Club teen center.

BURNING RUBBER AT HARDRIVES, INC.

 

Vice Mayor Shaddow received complaints about the smell of burning rubber at Hardrives, Inc.  She suspects they are burning rubber and asked about the possibility of having their variances revoked.  She stated that the old asphalt and tires could be the source of the problem.

 

Sgt. Bruce Swift, Code Enforcement Supervisor, said he contacted Department of Planning  Environmental Protection (DPEP) and learned that Hardrives has a contract with the Florida Department of Transportation to collect used tires, melt them and add it to asphalt.  The incinerator they are using is not supposed to release fumes and if it is, it is not working properly.

 

Vice Mayor Shaddow asked if our City Code addresses this type of activity.  Hardrives advised the City Commission previously that they used old asphalt to make recycled asphalt, but never mentioned the melted tires. 

 

Sgt. Swift said an inspector would be going to the site the next day.  Sgt. Swift would look into the Code to see if it covers matters like this.

 

RAPID ROLLOFF COLLECTING DEBRIS

 

Vice Mayor Shaddow stated that Rapid Rolloff was not given permission to sort debris outside and the City Commission was assured that would not happen.  Rapid Rolloff has a large pile of debris outside.  Vice Mayor Shaddow believes that working with the businesses to come to a compromise has led to problems with enforcement of the conditions of approval and added the City Commission should think carefully before negotiating to such degrees.

 

Sgt. Swift reviewed the site plans and stated the City Commission was clear in its intent.  Rapid Rolloff is not allowed to sort outdoors.  He offered Rapid Rolloff an opportunity to correct this and other problems on the site, such as not having the required landscaping in place.  Some of Hardrives' trucks on parking on 14th are destroying the swale, so no parking signs may have to be installed.  The internal movement of traffic is also not in compliance with the site plan.  Trucks are supposed to enter on Powerline and exit on 14th. 

 

Commissioner Noland asked if their occupational license was renewed.

 

Sgt. Swift said he is handling this as a code enforcement issue and as long as they are on this site, they must comply.

 

Vice Mayor Shaddow said they had their occupational license in place when they came before the commission for the site plan.

 

PUBLIC TO BE HEARD

 

AIRCRAFT AND JETSKIS ON CRYSTAL LAKE

 

Gene Ash, 960 Crystal Lake Drive, said an aircraft and jetskis are making noise on Crystal Lake.  A seaplane that looks like a boat has been taking off and landing on Crystal Lake creating a lot of noise.  The jetskis are very noisy, too.  He said he would call Code Enforcement tomorrow.
