Board of County Commissioners 7/8/2010 5G Adopted P
REPORT: First Assistant County Attorney Abigail Price-Williams read the foregoing proposed ordinance into the record. Chairman Moss opened the public hearing on the foregoing ordinance and the following persons appeared in support of this ordinance: Ms. Grace O’Donnell, Chair, Commission for Women noted this ordinance would facilitate communication between the staff members of the noted advisory Commissions and the staff members of the Commissioners, enhancing their abilities to fulfill their missions. Mr. Reinaldo Valdez, Secretary, Community Relations Commission (CRB), echoed Ms. O’ Donnell’s sentiments, but as related to the CRB only. Chairman Moss opened the public hearing on the foregoing ordinance, and seeing no person appear wishing to be heard, the public hearing was closed. Commissioner Seijas noted she was uncomfortable voting on this ordinance now, because this budget was submitted yesterday and she was uncertain if funding was sufficient to implement this ordinance. She suggested that the foregoing ordinance be deferred in order to review the budget books. It was moved by Commissioner Seijas that the foregoing ordinance be deferred to the July 20, 2010 County Commission meeting. The motion died due to lack of a second. Chairman Moss spoke in support of the foregoing ordinance, which he noted would give the CRB a better chance at surviving. Hearing no further comments or discussion, the Commission proceeded to vote on this resolution as presented.
