Vice Mayor Noland asked if the Band had any fundraisers to assist them with this trip. She said that parents have to sometime help pay for these trips. Further, every year the
Deerfield Beach High School Band requested that the Commission aid them in their travels for out of state performance, which is very expensive. She recommended that

assistance.

A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY OF DEERFIELD BEACH, FLORIDA, RELATING TO THE PROVISION OF FIRE RESCUE SERVICES, FACILITIES AND
PROGRAMS IN THE CITY OF DEERFIELD BEACH, FLORIDA; AMENDING THE INITIAL ASSESSMENT RESOLUTION; IMPOSING FIRE RESCUE
ASSESSMENTS AGAINST ASSESSED PROPERTY LOCATED WITHIN THE CITY, FOR THE FISCAL YEAR THAT BEGAN OCTOBER 1, 2001;
APPROVING THE RATE OF ASSESSMENT; APPROVING THE ASSESSMENT ROLL; AND PROVIDING AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

Mayor Capellini stated that the Commission previously approved, at its February 5, 2002 City Commission meeting, to assess the institutional facilities and would like to
reconsider that issue.
MOTION was made by Commissioner Trinchitella and Seconded by Commissioner Clarke-Reed to adopt Resolution No. 2002/ 032, exempting all institutional facilities. Roll
Call: YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Gonot, Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

Sally Siegel, Finance Director, stated that she and Gary Lother, Fire Chief, attended the Town of Hillsboro Beach City Commission meeting this morning to discuss the Fire
Rescue Service Contract and the proposed Protection Fee that the City is now considering. They proposed an increase in the base amount of the current contract,
based on per capital adjustment, which would equal with residents in the City of Deerfield Beach. And the Town of Hillsboro Beach accepted the concept.

In addition, they proposed an adjustment to the Town of Hillsboro contract an additional $104,419, which represents their dwelling units times the $49.00 Fire Assessment Fee
that is proposed to the residents of Deerfield Beach. The current fiscal year 2002 contract for Fire Rescue Services with Hillsboro Beach, therefore, could potentially
increase from $321,753 to a total of $468,002. She said that they have agreed with said proposal based upon the City Commission's decision tonight, and in the event the
Commission decided a different fee, other than the $49 Fire Assessment Fee, their contact would be adjusted accordingly.

Thereafter, Mrs. Siegel and Mr. Lother entertained questions by the Commission.
Virginia Delegal, Nabors, Giblin and Nickerson, P. A., 1500 Mahan Drive, Suite 200, Tallahassee, Florida, 32308, stated that tonight is the final procedure in the process of
the proposed Fire Rescue Assessment, that began last fall. She said that the Commission held a public hearing on February 5, 2002, and adopted Ordinance
2002/ 003 enabling the City to impose the assessment. The Initial Assessment Resolution, Resolution No. 2002/ 011, was also adopted, which contains the proposed
rate. And on February 12, 2002, first class notices were mailed to all effective property 7

owners explaining the assessment and providing specific property information as to the proposed assessment for that property, as well as notice of tonight's public hearing.

Additionally, Mrs. Delegal stated that after the notices were mailed, a telephone bank was staffed with City staff to answer questions from property owners regarding said
notices. She said after tonight's public hearing, the Commission would take action on the Final Assessment Resolution and if adopted, as was amended to exempt non-profit
tax exempted entities, the Commission would take action that would adopt the final assessment rate for this fiscal year.

Commissioner Gonot asked if there is a mechanism for the City to track other government agencies, such as the School Board, the amount that they would pay,
although there is not a mechanism to make them pay?
Mrs. Delegal replied that it is her understanding that they can provide the City the amount that the School Board would have paid, had it not exempt the institutional
category. This information can be taken to the School Board and advise them what their fair share would have been if billed.

Bill Crawford, 315 SE 7 th Street, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 33301, General Counsel to the Deerfield Beach Housing Authority, stated that they received three (3) bills for the
Fire Assessment Fee, totaling $17,000.

Larry Deetjen, City Manager, stated that he represents over 474 men and women who are employed by the City of Deerfield Beach and everyone of them are proud of the
services that they provide to this community, particularly, when it comes to Public Safety and Fire Rescue. He said the City of Deerfield Beach has one of the finest Fire Rescue
Departments in the United States. He said that the City has one of the lowest per capita expenditures amongst fire rescue departments. When the service is needed, the fire
department is there to respond on a 24-hour basis. He said that the City conducts an annual citizen survey and its services rank approximately 96%, good and excellent.

Further, Mr. Deetjen said since the notices were mailed, the City received 410 telephone calls and 86% requested general information and the remaining opposed the
fire assessment fee. He said it cost over $11 million to provide fire rescue services for this community. And though a fee is charged for health insurance, which revenue
generates approximately $1.5 million, those fees are set through congress and the federal level government and does not pay for the cost of fire rescue services but
offsets a small portion.
Additionally, in 1996 Broward County decided not to provide some reimbursement funds to municipalities. However, surrounding municipalities throughout the State of Florida
and other communities in the United States by law has been charging fire assessment fees. He said that the average fire assessment fee in Broward County is over $78.00.
He said that the neighboring communities such as: Coconut Creek, Pompano Beach, Sunrise, Fort Lauderdale, Oakland Park, Boynton Beach and unincorporated Broward
County are charging fire assessment fees. And that throughout history special assessment or assessment for services delivered have been charged. 9

PUBLIC HEARINGS -CONTINUED
Continuing, he said that businesses are charged by square footage whereas residential units are charged $49 and is based on the City's response, rather small or large unit for
a residential an apparatus would be used with the same manpower. When responding to a business it is different based on whether it is a warehouse, commercial or industry.

In conclusion, Mr. Deetjen said that he recommended the fire assessment fee to the Commission in August 2001. He said that the City did not have a tax millage increase
for the last five years nor has there been a garbage increase since 1995. The water rate has had a planned increase for the last three years to accommodate a new filtration
plant, which is under construction at Goolsby Boulevard. This plant is needed to continue providing water that meets the strict requirements of the Federal
Environmental Protection Agency. The City's water has been recognized in the State of Florida for 17 consecutive years for having the best quality treatment plant in the State
of Florida. He said that the Administration and staff is available to address the public's concern and welcomed the public to make suggestions.

Mayor Capellini stated that if the Commission chooses not to adopt this assessment, there are several alternatives however, the public would not like them either because
they are not necessarily in the best interest of the City to include reducing staff. He further said that the monies in which the Commission is requesting for improvements
would come from bond funds. He said that since the September 11 tragedy, the City has received additional federal and state mandates that must be adhered too; however,
they do not provide the funds. In addition, Mayor Capellini said that the economy is not doing well and the State revenue is far less than in previous years, which results in the
City receiving 30% less than previously received because it shares on the roads and improvements throughout the City. He said that these funds are generated from the
gasoline taxes. Mayor Capellini continued by outlining the budget to operate the City.
Mr. Deetjen stated that the City of Deerfield Beach is one of the lowest per capital spending communities in the area and Boca Raton is one of the highest, but has a
higher tax base, as well as a utility tax. He said that the City of Deerfield Beach is one of two remaining South Florida communities without a utility tax that generates
approximately $11 -$15 million annually. He said that Administration spend less per capita today than it did in 1994 and a high percentage of the cost is allocated for public
safety, police and fire services.
In response to Mayor Capellini's question, Mrs. Delegal replied that the method that was used to calculate the recommended rate is based on demand for services. Some
factors are not considered such as property value because it reflects more closely with what the Fire Department actually does when it receives a call for service. For
example: If a call comes in from a residential property the dispatcher does not ask how large is your house, but rather is it a residential unit; therefore, the initial response from 10
10 Page 11 12
REGULAR CITY COMMISSION MEETING MINUTES MARCH 5, 2002
11
the Fire Department is the same, which resulted in the rate being the same for all residences.
PUBLIC HEARINGS -CONTINUED
The number of calls were actually counted on a calendar year basis that was dispatched to residential property, commercial property, industry warehouse property,
and institutional property which amount of calls were applied to the budget, and provided the percentage to be funded. And within those categories on residential that
amount of money was divided by the number of residential units to equal the residential rate. For the non-residential properties the number of square footage was divided to
equate the square foot rate.
Further, Mrs. Delegal stated that this particular method has been used in approximately half of the municipalities within Broward County, as well as approximately 40 or 50 other
communities within the State of Florida. And this method has withheld legal challenge as related to fire, to include the surrounding communities of Pembroke Pines, North
Lauderdale. And in the 1970's Sarasota County, Tampa and Polk County as well as the north part of the state and each time the particular methodology to fund fire first
response has been up held. She said that the emergency medical services such as: advance life support and transport is not apart of the assessment.

Commissioner Trinchitella stated that there were three individuals from the Century Village area that spoke in opposition of the fire assessment fee, however, as
representative for said district, they did not contact him to express their concerns.
MOTION was made by Commissioner Trinchitella and Seconded by Commissioner Gonot to adopt Resolution No. 2002/ 032. Roll Call: YEAS: Commissioner Gonot,

install an exhaust system. And there are other improvements that need to be done, to include an additional fire station in the Crystal Lake area. She said that Item 20,
purchase of computer equipment was in the budget for three years and was not approved by the Administration for the Commission's consideration, which is why the
implementation of the ad hoc committee is needed.
Mayor Capellini said that the projects were not completed due to insufficient funds. GENERAL ITEMS -CONTINUED

Commissioner Gonot recommended that the City Manager and Fire Chief to obtain input from the Union, however, they have not complied with his request. He said that
there has been numerous items that have been requested and has not been acted on. For example the temporary trailer that houses the firefighters on SW 11 th Drive, is
substandard housing and needs to be upgraded, as well as other request for improvements. Therefore, he requested that a broader input is considered from the
Union.
Mayor Capellini agreed that Station 1 and others need rehabilitation. He said that the trailer is a temporary situation, and until funds are available a permanent station cannot
be built.
Commissioner Clarke-Reed and Vice Mayor Noland stated that there was bond money to build the Station on SW 11 th Drive.

Commission's approval. He said he is opposed to an ad hoc committee.
In response to Vice Mayor Noland's comment, Commissioner Clarke-Reed replied that the situation with the generator for the BSO Deerfield Beach District Office, should have
not resulted to such. If the City's inspectors, inspected the building on a regular basis they would have been aware of the roof's condition. Therefore, a committee is not

– Commissioner Clarke-Reed stated that District 2 – State of District meeting will be held on Wednesday,
March 6, 2002 at 7: 00 p. m. at Westside Park Recreation Center and encouraged the residents of her district to attend.

Commissioner Gonot – Issue on the November 5, 2002 General Election Ballot– Commissioner Gonot requested the Commission's consideration to have a straw ballot
on the November 5, 2002 General Election regarding annexing the unincorporated Broward County areas up to Sample Road to Dixie Highway into the City of Deerfield
Beach and that it would not cost the City due to it being a general election. By placing an item on the ballot would indicated the desire of the City's residence regarding
annexing the unincorporated areas.
COMMENTS BY MAYOR AND COMMISSIONERS -CONTINUED
Ada Graham-Johnson, City Clerk, stated that although it is a County Election, the City would have to share the cost if desired to place an issue on said ballot.

Commissioner Gonot requested that Mrs. Johnson contact the Supervisor of Elections office regarding the Commission placing an issue on the November 5, 2002 General
Election Ballot and the shared cost for said election.
Mayor Capellini expressed concern with having a straw ballot, and that the City would need to spend money to properly inform the people of what they are casting their ballot
on. There is a lot of misinformation regarding annexation. Therefore, there is a lot of misinformed people casting their vote on something they are not familiar with.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed said that the Commission must consider who will be responsible for gathering and providing the information as well as holding workshop
meetings.
Sylvia Poitier, 283 SW 1 st Terrace, Deerfield Beach, said that it was her understanding that the City of Deerfield Beach City Commission had agreed to annex up to Sample
Road to Dixie Highway and asked what would be the purpose of having a question placed on the ballot?

Commissioner Gonot stated that the bill that was before the legislature appears that it would not be approved, therefore the annexation issue will be re-addressed next year.
However, there has been some discussion on possibly allows the residents of the unincorporated area to vote on which city they would like to be annexed into. He said
that there was a dual referendum in years past, which is no longer being considered. And current city residents have no vote, and a straw ballot would provide an indication 23
23 Page 24 25
REGULAR CITY COMMISSION MEETING MINUTES MARCH 5, 2002
24
on whether the residents of Deerfield Beach would like to endorse moving the annexation to Sample Road.
Mrs. Poitier said that it would not make a difference whether the residents voted or not because the legislators will decide where the local cities are annexed. Further, there
cannot be any unincorporated areas by 2005.
Commissioner Trinchitella -No Report.

Commission for approving to exempt the houses of worship and the non-profit organizations. She said that she attended the meeting that was held at the Chamber of
Commerce in which they discussed what action should be taken regarding the Fire Assessment Fee. She further said that he Commission would consider Vice Mayor
Noland's suggestion to establish an ad hoc committee to oversee said funds and submits recommendations to the Fire Chief and avoids micro-management. Mrs. Poitier
said that she spoke with many people in the community regarding this subject matter and suggested that there be improvement in the public relations. She said by informing
the citizens on the disbursement of funds it would enhance the relationship amongst the politician and the people. Many have requested information as to what has happened
to the bond issue money that was allocated to build the fire stations. 24

Continuing, Mrs. Poitier said that if more communication were provided it would resolve the problem and help the residents to understand. She said that tonight's crowd and
the comments that were made regarding the chose of voting, and to loose that kind of hope and aspiration is not necessary in today's age.

Commissioner Gonot agreed with Mrs. Poitier in that it is a failure of communication on the Commission's and Administration's part.
Reconsider 9 x 18 Parking Space Ordinance -Greg Rodgers, 659 Hollow Circle, Deerfield Beach, requested that the Commission reconsider an Ordinance that was
presented to the Commission approximately 1 ½ years ago based on the 9 x 18 parking spaces. He said that the Community Redevelopment Agency, CRA, recommended as
well as the norm in South Florida is 9 x 18 and not 10 x 20, which would reduce the number of variances requested for the Commission's consideration.

PUBLIC TO BE HEARD -CONTINUED
Limited hours for Construction Ordinance -Greg Rodgers, 659 Hollow Circle, Deerfield Beach, requested that the Commission consider when amending the limited hours for
the construction ordinance, to keep in mind that the Code allows homeowners to be owner builders, so when making improvements to their home on Saturday, will they be
cited by the BSO, Code Enforcement. Therefore, by approving the proposed construction ordinance it would not only affect the contractors and developers but the
homeowners as well. Therefore, he requested that it be well thought prior to approving said ordinance.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed requested that those people who are in the construction industry inform the Administration on how the proposed ordinance would affect them if
approved.
Mr. Rodgers said that he has been in the construction profession all his life and that there are noise ordinance that are in affect and are based on decibel rating and if the
decibel reading is violated, one should be cited. He said that it is not construction per say, but the noise in which it creates, therefore, he suggested that the noise ordinance
be enforced.
