PRESENTATION
Community Improvements Video -The community video included highlights of The
Beach Blowout and Harold Stilson, the gentleman who scored a "Hole in One" at the
Deerfield Beach Golf Club at the age of 101.

Mayor presented a proclamation to Harold Stilson. Mr. Stilson recently celebrated his
101 st birthday and the day after scored a "hole in one" at the Deerfield Beach Golf Club.
He has appeared on several national television networks and attributes his good health
to good genes.

Larry Deetjen, City Manager, introduced Burgess Hanson, new hire for Assistant to City
Manager. Mr. Hanson relocated from West Virginia and is currently a resident of
Deerfield Beach. He has a Masters degree in Public Administration and worked for the
Environmental Protection Department in the state of West Virginia.

Sally Siegel, Director of Finance, introduced a Resolution for the Simplification Tax Act.
Ms. Siegel explained this is a law that the State of Florida is enacting for communication
services tax. In the past the City collected franchise fees for telecommunication services
and for cable television. The state is taking that responsibility away from the City and
collecting revenue on the City's behalf. The City is required to prepare a resolution
indicating that the City will not charge permit fees for businesses coming into the City for
the purpose of doing work. Rather, the City will request a slightly higher percentage
from the state for the telecommunication and franchise fees that they will be collecting.
This is new and will go into effect on October 1, 2001. The State has indicated that the
City should remain revenue neutral, and this being a concern, we will monitor the
situation to insure that the City does not loose revenue. Last year the City collected
approximately $185,000 in telephone franchise fees and for cable franchise fees
approximately $650,000.

Motion to adopt the Resolution was made by Commissioner Trinchitella and seconded
by Vice Mayor Noland. Commissioner Clarke-Reed stated she would vote yes, however
she feels that the Legislature has placed many cities in a very awkward position with
regards to budgeting for the next fiscal year. Commissioner Gonot also voted yes, but
agreed with Commissioner Clarke-Reed and also stated that he did not understand how
this would be a more efficient way of collecting revenue. Roll call showed; YEAS -5,
NAYS 0.

Presentation by Ilean Sylk, Volunteer Coordinator from the N. E. Focal Point Volunteers.
Ms. Sylk announced that for the year 2000, 352 dedicated people dedicated their skills,
talent and caring to the N. E. Vocal Point. She presented a check to the City of Deerfield
Beach for $326,701.05. This is a monetary value of 22,782 and one half volunteer
hours.
Ms. Jayne Hafer, gave recognition for the N. E. Focal Point Intergenerational Child Care
Center's Gold Seal Award of Excellence. The N. E. Focal Point has received the Gold
Seal Award of Excellence five times since 1987, and four times consecutively. Ms.
Hafer thanked the Commission for the opportunity to speak and presented the 2000
year Gold Seal Award for the Intergenerational Child Care Center. She announced that
in recognition of Child Care Week, the N. E. Focal Point was planning a musical called
2001 Odessy, on Saturday, June 9, 2001 at 10: 00 a. m. and invited everyone to attend.

Mayor Capellini stated that this is one of the programs that has made the City of
Deerfield Beach eligible to be chosen as a finalist for an "America's City" award.

Mayor Capellini presented a Resolution supporting National Sheriff's Association
Annual Conference. A representative from the Broward Sheriff's Office accepted the
Resolution.

Certificates of appreciation for the Beach Blowout sponsors and committee members
presented by Carlos Bais. Mr. Bais thanked everyone for their efforts and proceeded to
read out the names on the appreciation certificates, which he would distribute to the
appropriate people after the meeting.

Mayor Capellini presented a proclamation to Ron Ruback who is the founding father of
the Beach Blowout.

Ron Ruback thanked everyone and said Larry Deetjen is as much responsible for the
success of the Beach Blowout and thanked him.

Certificate of Appreciation for the Deerfield Beach Kiwanis Club. Gary Lother, Fire Chief
announced that the Kiwanis Club had recently purchased and donated to Fire Rescue a
thermo-imaging camera which allows firemen to be able to see through a smoke filled
room. Whereas a flashlight will let you see in the dark, this camera allows you to
actually see through smoke and is the first of it's kind. It cost over $13,000 and there will
be a demonstration on June 14, 2001 at the Deerfield Beach Kiwanis luncheon at 12: 00
p. m. at Pal's. Anyone who would like to attend is welcome.

I. GENERAL ITEMS

construction by July 2002 and in order to meet that schedule they must start the

accommodate their needs for two employees.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed replied that we are in the middle of hurricane season and
asked if the trailer would comply with hurricane codes.

Larry Deetjen stated that they would have to comply with the South Florida Building
Code and they were actually already in the process of obtaining their permit for the
trailer in the event the Commission approves their request.

MOTION was made by Commissioner Gonot and Seconded by Vice Mayor Noland to
approve. Roll Call: YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Gonot,
Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

ITEM I-2
Request for Mobile Hot Dog Cart at the County Courthouse, by Michael
Spirito

COMMENTS: Mr. Spirito requesting to have a mobile hot dog cart at
Broward County Courthouse on Hillsboro Boulevard

Commissioner Clarke-Reed asked if it was permissible to grant this item for the County
Courthouse?

inside the courthouse.

MOTION was made by Vice Mayor Noland and Seconded by Commissioner Clarke-Reed
to deny. Roll Call: YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Gonot,
Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

ITEM I-3 TAPE 1, COUNT
Police Station Roof Repair

COMMENTS: Commission to determine if roof repair will be paid out of
Emergency Fund

Larry Deetjen suggested, on the advice of Sally Siegel, Finance Director, that the
money from the Law Enforcement Forfeiture Fund, which was established before the
City's contract with BSO, be used before the money from the Emergency Fund is used.
It has been determined that due to weather contributing to the deterioration of the roof
the money from the Emergency Fund would be applicable to the roof at BSO.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed asked if there were stipulations as to what the monies from
the Forfeiture Fund could be used for.

Andrew Maurodis explained that this is an unusual situation because this fund was
established prior to being under contract with BSO and since there is no police chief, as
stated in the Statue, he has determined that the City Manager would be the next in
command to issue an opinion and execute the fund. Under the present conditions Chief
Brennan would be the person who would issue the opinion and execute the fund.

Larry Deetjen further stated that the City's maintenance department secured the
cantelevered roof. It was noted at that time that the rear roof was in danger of collapsing
where employees park and was also secured with temporary columns.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed asked how much insurance money the City has on the
building and was answered by Larry Deetjen, $100,000.00 deductible. The cost for the
repairs is estimated to be $90,000.00.

Vice Mayor Noland is not in favor of using the Emergency Fund (Dimes for Disaster)
money to repair the roof. It is the tax payers money and should not be used for repairs
such as needed for the roof on the police building.

Respectfully, Larry Deetjen said that there are two items that need to be seen to before
hurricane season begins in earnest. One is to secure the police station. Project Impact
has shown us that you must be pro-active in preparing for hurricanes.

Vice Mayor Noland stated she agreed with Mr. Deetjen and is in favor of repairing the
roof with the $39,000 from the Law Enforcement Forfeiture Fund, but refuses to
consider using the money from the Emergency Fund (Dimes for Dollars).

Larry Deetjen reminded the Commission that this is a tight budget year, and had looked
at several options, asked the Finance Director to research what other options may be
available and this is what they came up with.

Commissioner Gonot asked when Mr. Deetjen planned to start the repairs in which he
answeed that it is ready to go. A suggestion was made by the Commissioner to loan the
money since the City is so close to starting.
Commissioner Clarke-Reed said she is not in favor of using the money and feels that it
would only take one disaster and the fund would be depleted. Commissioner
Tractenburg, in his tenure created this fund, and the City received consideration by
Project Impact because of being proactive in preparation for disasters.

The direction from the Commission was to find another source of funds for the roof
repair.

Larry Deetjen agreed to have Sally Siegel determine if there was another fund in which
the money could be used and present it to the Commission again at the June 14 th
Commission meeting.

MOTION was made by Vice Mayor Noland and Seconded by Commissioner Clarke-Reed
to deny using the "Dimes for Disaster" money. Roll Call: YEAS: Commissioner
Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Gonot, Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Noland and
Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

ITEM I-6 TAPE 1, COUNT
Risk Management regarding Employee/ Dependent/ Retiree Health
Care Costs

COMMENTS: Increase current PPO dependent rates 10% on July 1,
2001, HMO rates remain at current levels, consider a resolution changing
Personnel Rules and Regulations to have Retiree pay a portion of their
own premium

Mike Norcia, Risk Manager reported that the net cost of insurance to the City in 1999
was 1.4 million, the net cost was 1.8 million in 2000, and the estimated cost for the year
2001 is 2.2 million. The first recommendation is to increase the PPO rates for the
dependents by 10% effective July 1, 2001. That would reduce the spending by
approximately $40,000 annually. Increasing the PPO deductible 150/ 300 to 300/ 600
effective July 1, 2001, would reduce the cost to the City approximately $45,000
annually. Increasing the prescription co-pay from $5/$ 10 to $5/$ 15 and $30 for non-formulary
would decrease the City's cost by approximately $45,000. Lastly, having the
early retirees pick up 50% of their premiums to age 65, which is currently being paid by
the City, would add an additional $54,000 savings to the City.
Vice Mayor Noland asked why isn't the HMO having to share the increase that PPO is
incurring.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed stated that they had asked to have clarified how much of
the 9% increase was PPO and how much was HMO. Administrative expenses, which is
supposedly what the 9% increase is for, should be for HMO as well as PPO, but it
seems that only the PPO subscribers are incurring the increase.

Furthermore, with regards to changing personnel rules, such as the retirees benefits,
Commissioner Clarke-Reed questioned the ethics of doing this.

Mayor Capellini agreed with Commissioner Clarke-Reed and asked how you could take
something away from a retiree that has been retired for ten years that was promised to
them. He asked that Mr. Norcia re-examine the issue, and present it to the Commission
again at the June 14, 2001 meeting.

MOTION was made by Vice Mayor Noland and Seconded by Commissioner Clarke-Reed
to table the item until the June 14, 2001 meeting. Roll Call: YEAS: Commissioner
Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Gonot, Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Noland and
Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

ITEM I-7 TAPE 1, COUNT

ITEM I-8 TAPE 1, COUNT
FDOT Surplus Property Transfer to City/ FAU Research Facility Park
COMMENTS: FDOT to make transfer to City based upon CRA
construction of Hillsboro Boulevard Improvements from Federal Highway
to Intracoastal

Andrew Maurodis said he was asked to prepare a resolution that the City's intentions
would be to undertake the improvements recommended by the CRA pending the CRA's
approval, which is not legally binding but would indicate the City's intentions.
Larry Deetjen explained that there is intense interest from the private sector for this
section of land, and the language of the resolution will not commit the Commission to
anything until they have seen the bids and designs. FDOT wants to be assured that the
City intends to move forward with the project subject to the budget and the
Commission's approval.

MOTION was made by Vice Mayor Noland and Seconded by Commissioner Clarke-Reed
to approve. Roll Call: YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Gonot,
Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

ITEM I-9
Park Ridge Street Lighting Proposal
COMMENTS: FP& L identifies approximate locations where 48 new
streetlights may be added

Commissioner Clarke-Reed asked why they are using wooden poles as opposed to
concrete poles and the shadow proof or protective shield should be used.

Larry Deetjen said he had no problem directing FL& L to use concrete poles and install
the protective shields. However residents should be made aware that the City is going
to need to have access to the easements and does not pay for the use of the
easements. The City incurs a cost to draw up the agreements with FP& L but it is
necessary to have access to the easements in order to install the lights for the
betterment of the community.

ADMINISTRATIVE ACTIONS AND CITY MANAGER COMMENTS
City Attorney
COMMENTS BY MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS
Commissioner Gonot complained that the traffic flow at Deerfield Beach High School
needs to be addressed. It is problematic and at times is a hazard.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed said that traffic signals would help. Homeowners are
complaining about people driving through their yards to get around the backed up
school traffic.

Vice Mayor Noland suggested that the Commission should send out letters to
organizations that donations have previously been awarded to stating that this is going
to be a tight budget year and if they are going to be requesting donations in the
upcoming year they need to seek other sources. She further stated that Deerfield Beach
has been very gracious and generous in the past and expects full understanding from
the organizations which have previously received contributions.

In addition, on the previous CAB meeting the Olympia Diner was on the agenda was not
notified by their architect and were denied. She asked that the Commission allow them
to go before the CAB again so that they may present their case.

MOTION was made by Commissioner Clarke-Reed and Seconded by Vice Mayor
Noland to approve the request. Roll Call: YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed,
Commissioner Gonot, Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor
Capellini. NAYS: None.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed reminded everyone that the Mango Festival would be
starting on June 15 th , kicked off by the Mango Ball on the evening of the 15 th . The
O'Jays will be entertaining on Saturday evening and Sunday will feature gospel singer
Shirley Ceasar. Admission is $5.00 for adults and $1.00 for ages 3-12. She continued
by contratulating the Mango Festival for having awarded $7,000 to 7 students at
Deerfield Beach High School in scholarships from last years proceeds.
Vice Mayor asked for an update on the Mitigation Center and the bonds.
Larry Deetjen replied that he would be happy to have the architects come to the next
Commission meeting and give a brief presentation. An agreement with FAU has been
established as to where to place the MOC center and Fire Station # 4 in relation to the
research center. Another issue is the County and what function they will want to have in
the building. The Broward Sheriff's Association still has to make a determination
regarding their communications, however the County is in agreement this will be
considered a Northeast Regional County facility incorporated with the MOC Center.
Funding is in place for the fire station but not for the MOC. There will be a meeting with
the architects to determine if construction can be done in phases, starting with the fire
station. The Commission has done a wonderful job lobbying for the funds and there is
currently a bill before Congress in an effort to find support for the MOC.

Vice Mayor Noland asked if the MOC was part of the bond issue and was answered by
Larry Deetjen that it was not.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed, in regards to the budget, asked to see what the
Department Heads present when they submit their budgets. In particular if they are
cutting items out of their budgets she would like to be advised so she can make the
determination if it will affect the citizens of Deerfield Beach and would like to know the
justification of the cuts.

A motion was made by Vice Mayor Noland and seconded by Commissioner Gonot to
have the City Manager submit the budgets to the Commissioners after he has received
them. Roll Call: YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Gonot,
Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

Commissioner Gonot regarding the traffic calming in the northeast quadrant of
Powerline Road and Hillsboro Boulevard and asked if someone would meet with the
homeowners or if there was a time frame he could share with the homeowners if asked.

Larry Deetjen answered that McMahon Associates will begin the initial meeting
sometime over the summer. 19

PUBLIC TO BE HEARD
James McGeary, 1442 SE 6 Street regarding Fireman Pension Retirement fund. He
expressed there has been outrage from the public, expressed in the local newspapers
in the editorials, concerning the controversial negotiations of the plan. Two areas of
concern are; can the city afford it, and the second; is the plan appropriate. The
projections are based on an 8% rate of return on the fiduciary's and he asked
Commissioner Trinchitella if he (the Commissioner) thought that was a reasonable
expectation.

Commissioner Trinchitella answered that a third party was hired to make a
determination on which actuary would be best.

Mayor Capellini also advised Mr. McGeary that he could trust that the Commission
would make a fair decision. He also reminded Mr. McGeary that the City is still in the
process of fact finding and asked that he be patient until the study has been completed.

Mr. McGeary asked if Deerfield Beach pays less taxes than Boca Raton, he does not
think that is the case.

Mayor Capellini answered that the taxes in Deerfield Beach are less than Boca Raton
but you have to compare the milage rate
