2016 Annual Meeting – Code Enforcement Report, Bruce Murray, Code Enforcement Chair

The Code Enforcement Department was busy in South Beach in 2015 and we thank Peggy Arraiz and her staff for their efforts on our behalf. They are spread very thin and it is often hard to balance the demands of the entire city and the relative urgency of issues in different parts of the city. But, 172 violations were issued in South Beach at 129 addresses in 2015, indicating a number of addresses had multiple violations issued. Of those, 113 have been brought in to compliance, 46 remain active and 13 were closed. Several new active cases were opened early in 2016, including the painting of the wall on Crestview and Ocean, which was completed before the Annual Meeting, and a couple of major mowing violations. You have probably seen a number of other mowing and nuisance notices posted around the community.

2016 Annual Meeting – C.O.P. District 9 Annual Report, Bruce Murray, Leader, District 9 C.O.P.

The revitalization of C. O. P. in South Beach was well established by the end of 2015. District 9 started the year with seven people on the roster, only three of whom were active. Four were dropped for inactivity and five were recruited and completed the sixteen hour classroom and three hour field training so we ended the year with eight active members, five of whom are seasonal. One additional new member has completed classroom training since January 1 and will be active soon. One member completed the Sheriff’s Citizen Academy and one is awaiting the start of the FPPD Citizen Academy as of the end of the year. An active recruiting effort has begun in anticipation of a training class in early April.

2016 Annual Meeting – Preview of 2016, Carole Mushier, FPSBA President

From what we just heard tonight, it is clear that things are happening and will happen at the Port during 2016! I hope to see 2 MEGA yachts berthed there for refurbishing and repair every week with plans to expand the area to accommodate more ships (at that size they are ships not boats!). viewContinue Reading
