Governmental Operations and Environment Committee 2/13/2007 3A Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: The foregoing proposed ordinance was read into the record by Assistant County Attorney Joni Armstrong-Coffey. Chairwoman Seijas opened the public hearing on the foregoing proposed ordinance. Hearing no person wishing to speak on this matter, the public hearing was closed. Commissioner Diaz questioned whether Commissioner Heyman had discussed the intent of this ordinance with the various Trade Boards. Commissioner Heyman noted she had solicited applicants from all trades and industries to fill the seat, but the qualifications were so specific that they were unable to fill the vacancy. Consequently, she noted, she was requesting that the criteria be changed. Chairwoman Seijas asked Commissioner Heyman to consider exploring the possibility of presenting a slate to the BCC that included at least three private citizens for appointees to the Construction Trades Qualifying Board. Commissioner Heyman noted Chairman Seijas' suggestion was acceptable and she would be willing to offer an amendment, if timely, at the next County Commission meeting. Hearing no further discussion, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing ordinance as presented.
