FANE LOZMAN RE: THE IMPORTANCE OF FUNDING FOR THE ALREADY DESIGNED MOORING FIELD ADJACENT TO THE PELICAN HARBOR MARINA
Sally A. Heyman, Prime Sponsor
Board of County Commissioners
County Attorney Robert Cuevas read the foregoing citizen’s presentation into the record.
Mr. Fane Lozman noted he lived at 7918 West Drive, North Bay Village, FL. He also noted derelict sea vessels that were being insufficiently secured to the Marina’s seabed were drifting during storms and causing damage to other boats; and that some of derelict vessels were disposed of with local tax dollars. Mr. Lozman noted a permit was issued five years ago for a mooring field to be developed in Pelican Harbor, and this field would have permanent anchors in the sea bottom to prevent drifting. Mr. Lozman explained, however, that the mooring field was never funded, and the permit was due to expire in 2010. He pointed out that the Marina would generate revenues by requiring a $300 to $400 fee of anyone who anchored a boat at the mooring field. He asked the County Commission to allocate funding for the mooring field and to direct the Park and Recreation Department Director to grant authority to the County’s marine patrol to enforce the County’s rules against people living on derelict vessels.
Commissioner Edmonson clarified that Mr. Lozman lived in Commissioner Heyman’s commission district (Dist. 4), but that Pelican Harbor was located in her commission district (Dist. 3).
In response to Commissioner Edmonson’s request that Mr. Lozman meet with her in her office to discuss this matter further, Mr. Lozman noted that he would do so.
