Chair Wisneski clarified there was no request for new liaisons but she believes the new staff will give the CAB a broader scope and resources for activities in which they choose to become involved. Don Krzan stated his understanding was that tonight’s discussion would be about expanding to include new areas of project interest. Councilmember Barnett explained the staff liaison helps to support the activities the CAB deems appropriate. Vice Chair Brady reported going into different neighborhoods and observed the recycling practices. He felt most households were participating. He also observed that commercial properties do not recycle and suggested the Solid Waste Authority (SWA)be invited to a meeting for clarification of commercial waste practices. StaffLiaison Angela Wong stated the goal of the campaign is to get the word out about commercial recycling. The SWA has an education program and they will come and present it. Sherry Levy asked what the CAB can do to promote commercial recycling. S a f tf Liaison Wong replied that the EAR presentation includes commercial recycling. Frances Heaslip asked if the PGA Corridor Association should address the issue and have them get the word out to businesses. Vice Chair Brady suggested 6-month voluntary participation and mandatory participation t h e r e a b . Discussion ensued regarding logistical problems that must be overcome before mandatory business recycling could be put into effect. David Anderson asked if Code Enforcement would become involved in this process. Chair Wisneski asked for the meeting to move back to the original issue establishing if the CAB wishes to take on either or both Going Green in the Gardens and Code Enforcement assistance as projects going forward. Don Krzan stated “no.” He asked if the new staff liaisons will remain even if the CAB does not choose to go forward with the new project initiatives. Chair Wisneski explained the new liaisons have a wider range of responsibilities and access t resozltces to provkkaf-response. o Don Krzan stated that o t of respect for Chair Wisneski, she should have been u r informed of the staff change before the meeting. M .Krzan suggested a meeting between CAB and Art in Public Places (AIPP) to see if there is any cxnllmdity. Councilmember Barnett stated that during City Council’s last discussion it was decided to leave the boards in place as they are. Frances Heaslip s a e that the Palm Beach County Commission has a volunteer ttd group that removes illegal signs. Camcilmember Bannett stated she thinks that practice is probably illegal. Code Enforcement Operations Director David Reyes suggested calling Code Enforcement when illegal signs are seen so the o f c r fies can handle the issue. He does not recommend private citizens pulling them out themselves. Councilmember Barnett stated it was Code Enforcement Operations Director David Reyes who w s responsible for the removal of the newspaper racks at a Bent Tree.
