   A. Consideration to Accept and Place on File the Comprehensive Annual
      Financial Report (CAFR) and the Single Audit Report (Compliance Report)
      for the Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2006. (Staff: Director of
      Finance)(see backup)

City Manager Good noted the City engages an auditor to audit financial and related
records each year. Robert R. Feldmann, Partner, McGladrey & Pullen, gave an
overview of the report. There were no material weaknesses, one reportable finding and
four suggestions for improvements that were not considered substantial. In sum, the
audit was a very positive report.

Mayor Cooper noted page 3 of the audit discussed the City’s $35.7 Million reserve. Mr.
Feldmann noted this amount exceeds typical municipal reserves but is an indication of
the City’s stability and strength.

Mayor Cooper asked about line 15 Capital Assets where land value appears to be
devalued. Mr. Feldmann clarified that the land value listed is not the current value but
the amount is the historical cost to the City. The market value or value of land for
insurance purposes would be different amounts than the historical cost.

Mayor Cooper asked about control of the City’s inventory and stated a full accounting
should be done. City Manager Good noted that annually the City does an inventory of
all assets to confirm location, condition and need for replacement. Mr. Feldmann stated
this is a sound business practice.

Mayor Cooper referred to debt being paid by the CRA. City Manager Good stated paying
off of City debt will be discussed during the Budget Workshop.




June 20, 2007                             -2-
Mayor Cooper asked about Federal Grant funds that were passed through the City. City
Manager Good noted the City is financially accountable for these funds whether or not
they are pass through dollars to another entity. Mr. Feldmann stated the pass through
funds must be included in the audit.

City Manager Good advised that the City’s favorable reserve will be substantially
impacted by the mandated 9% reduction in property taxes and the fact the City will not
be allowed to benefit for the 14% gain in property values in Hallandale Beach. Mayor
Cooper noted the Broward League of Cities and the Florida League of Cities are
reviewing surplus funds. Commissioner London stated it was important to have
adequate reserves.

Commissioner Ross stated the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report indicates the
City is progressive and has made substantial improvements in infrastructure and
operations.

Commissioner London asked about continuing the audit services with the same firm and
was advised the engagement includes an option to extend the services for two one-year
periods.

City Manager Good recognized Gail Blyth-Cabrera for her hard work and dedication
regarding the audit.

MOTION BY COMMISSIONER ROSS, SECOND BY VICE-MAYOR JULIAN, TO
ACCEPT AND PLACE ON FILE THE COMPREHENSIVE ANNUAL FINANCIAL

Mr. Smith noted that the State budget contains $90,000 for a Hepburn Senior Program.
$100,000 was approved for the After School Tutorial Program but this and other
allocations were vetoed by the Governor. Ten Million Dollars have been included in the
Elder Affairs budget for Senior Centers which will be available as grants following
adoption of the program rules.

The status of the various bills regarding gaming, cable franchises, and the primary
election date were discussed. A bill passed providing for education/licensing of persons
to repair/install slot machines which will create new jobs.

The Legislature did not remove the cap on the Affordable Housing Trust Fund but the
Affordable Housing bill permits deferral of ad valorem taxes under certain
circumstances.

The Mobile home relocation bill passed and will impact mobile home parks in the City
being designated for redevelopment.




June 20, 2007                             -3-
A bill was enacted requiring Law Enforcement Officers to pass a physical exam upon
entering active duty to document any physical issues.

Mr. Smith discussed the Special Session of the Legislature where a bill was passed
rolling back the property tax base to current (2006-07) amounts with a formula for
property tax cuts based on increases in local government revenues since 2001.
Coupled with this reduction of revenue for local governments, State funding for
education was substantially increased and the allocation of revenues from casinos was
approved for higher education beyond K-12. Further, the Constitutional Amendment
regarding further reductions in property taxes will be on the ballot on January 29, 2008.
School Boards will not be exempted from revenue reductions if the Constitutional
Amendment is passed by the voters.

Mr. Smith discussed his efforts to obtain federal grant funding for the city in areas of
traffic signal synchronization, fingerprinting, Emergency Operations Center equipment
and indicated there will be earmarks.

charitable organizations on non-state roadways.

WITH THE CITY OF HOLLYWOOD IN THE AMOUNT OF $1,940,000 TO SETTLE THE
EFFLUENT METER DISCREPANCY. The motion carried by voice vote, 5/0.

Commissioner London asked why Hallandale Beach was the last municipality to settle.
City Manager Good stated that Hallandale Beach’s settlement involved three issues, not
just the effluent meter discrepancy and a comprehensive settlement of all issues was in
the best interest of the City.

Commissioner London asked who reads the Fletcher Street meter. City Manager Good
noted that all meters are read by the City of Hollywood and audited annually. City of
Hallandale Beach staff also read the meter for monitoring purposes and additional
accountability. A new meter has been installed. The bypass value which was mistakenly
opened has been covered with asphalt to ensure that it will not be opened in the future.

OF THE CITY. The motion carried by voice vote, 5/0.

In regard to wastewater capacity, Albert Perez noted the transfer of 1.2 million gallons a
day of wastewater capacity to the City of Hallandale Beach has been negotiated. Mr.
Perez stated that the large users are continuing to discuss an amended Large User
Agreement which is intended to allocate current and future wastewater capacity at the
Hollywood plant.

City Manager Good discussed why the large users had decided to enter into an
agreement with the City of Hollywood. He described how additional capacity will be
available to the large users with a re-rating of the Hollywood plant to an increased
capacity and with the City of Miramar constructing a wastewater processing plant.

City Manager Benson stated the Hollywood City Commission will be considering
settlement of the items on July 18, 2007 and thanked City Manager Good for his
leadership in bringing these matters to conclusion. He further stated all large users
reviewing the agreement is a good idea toward amendments that will benefit all the user
cities.

MOTION BY VICE-MAYOR JULIAN, SECOND BY COMMISSIONER SCHILLER, TO
AUTHORIZE THE CITY MANAGER TO ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT WITH THE
CITY OF HOLLYWOOD FOR TRANSFER OF 1.2 MILLION GALLONS A DAY (MGD)
OF RESERVE WASTEWATER CAPACITY TO THE CITY OF HALLANDALE BEACH
AND TO PAY THE DEBT SERVICE AND OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
EXPENSE AS REQUIRED BY THE LARGE USERS AGREEMENT. The motion carried
by a voice vote, 5/0.

Commissioner London asked about Hallandale Beach’s portion of the additional
wastewater processing capacity. City Manager Good noted the capacity is now 7.85
mgd and stated the objective is to increase to 9.0 mgd. Commissioner London asked
about costs involved to increase the overall capacity of the wastewater plant. He was
advised that costs are being determined.

In regard to recycled or re-used treated wastewater, Albert Perez noted that 25 mgd of
treated wastewater is piped to the ocean. This treated wastewater is considered not
capable of being reused due to the extent of its salt water content. A study of how to
increase the use of recycled water in Hallandale Beach has been requested and a
consultant will be hired for this study.

Mayor Cooper discussed the Lower East Coast Regional Supply Plan and the difficulties
of obtaining credits for use of recycled water.

It was noted that the joint Commission Meeting with the City of Hollywood will be
scheduled in September or October as the Hollywood City Commission takes a break in
August.

Representative Gibbons was recognized by Mayor Cooper and invited to speak.
Representative Gibbons stated he voted for the property tax roll back to current values
but voted against the Constitutional Amendment being placed on the ballot. Passage of
the Constitutional Amendment would be dire for local governments and he urged the
Commission to work to defeat same.

Mayor Cooper spoke of unfunded mandates from the State placed on local governments
in addition to the property tax cuts and the importance of having reserve funds. She
urged Representative Gibbons to vote against placing State requirements on local
government reserves.

   D. A Resolution Ratifying a Contract Between the City of Hallandale Beach,
      Florida, and the Florida Public Employees Council #79 of the American

      Hallandale Beach, Florida.(Staff: Personnel Director)(see backup)

benefits the employees and will attract new employees in the future. Neither the City nor
the Union received all contract components desired. The contract is in effect through
September 30, 2008 and negotiations will begin again for the next contract period.

   E. Discussion of Posting Zoning and Land Development Public Hearings
      (Commissioner London)(see backup)

Commissioner London discussed the purpose for the item and recommended that a
large sign size of 6 feet by 4 feet be stipulated when notifying the public of City
Commission and Planning and Zoning Board consideration of rezoning, land use plan
amendments and major development project approvals. This should better ensure the
public is notified of the time and place for the public hearings.

City Manager Good advised that a survey of a number of Broward cities regarding the
size for posted signs was completed and the size of 6 feet by 4 feet would be within
current size parameters.




June 20, 2007                             -6-
Mayor Cooper asked if the City would incur additional costs with this change and was
advised applicants would be responsible for the sign cost as part of their application fee.
Further, the City would specify sign specifications regarding design and presentation to
ensure it was aesthetically pleasing. Mayor Cooper recommended that the sign remain
on the project site until the construction process has started.

Vice Mayor Julian commented about the size of campaign signs during elections and
that sign dimensions of 4 feet by 4 feet should be sufficient.

Commissioner Ross concurred that a size of 4 feet by 4 feet would be sufficient and
suggested that this matter be further discussed during the budget workshop.

Commissioner London noted that more information is included on the public notice sign
than on an election campaign sign and the larger size would be beneficial. Further, he
concurred that the sign should remain on the subject property until the construction
process has started.

Commissioner Schiller suggested that staff should call all the members of each Board
and Committee to determine if there will be a quorum.

City Clerk McGough noted a new section #9 on page 8 of the proposed Administrative
Policy stated staff liaisons of quasi-judicial Boards shall call each member in advance.

Commissioner London stated he is in favor of adding language that if a member of a
Board or Committee is more than 15 minutes late to a meeting it will be considered an

participate in the meeting including voting on any items.       Further, a copy of the
Administrative Policy, when finalized, should be provided to each member of all Boards
and Committees.

Vice Mayor Julian advised he could not support an unexcused absence for being more
than 15 minutes late as Board and Committee members are volunteers and should not
be penalized. He also supported staff calling all the members of each Board and
Committee to determine if there will be a quorum.

NOTE:           THIS SECTION WAS AMENDED TO ALLOW THE CITY MANAGER
                DISCRETION TO APPROVE NON-CONTIGUOUS LANDSCAPING IF
                CONTIGUOUS LANDSCAPING CANNOT BE ACCOMMODATED OR IS
                NOT OTHERWISE ADVANTAGEOUS

City Manager Good advised the projected financial impact of the project on the City’s
revenues is $400,000 a year in taxes.

It was confirmed that per Section 3. of the Development Agreement the City will provide
sanitation services for the property.

Commissioner London inquired about the approximate cost of a parking space. Mr.
Geller advised that it can range from $20,000 to $28,000 a spot depending on the size of
building the parking garage is supporting.

Mayor Cooper recommended the City consider developing an urban public parking plan
to facilitate additional parking spaces.

Mayor Cooper opened the Public Hearing. Seeing no speakers, the Public Hearing was
closed.

MOTION BY VICE-MAYOR JULIAN, SECOND BY COMMISSIONER ROSS, TO
ADOPT THE ORDINANCE ON SECOND READING AND AUTHORIZE THE
APPROPRIATE OFFICIALS TO SIGN. The motion carried by a roll call vote, as
follows:

AYES: Commissioners London, Ross, and Schiller; Vice-Mayor Julian; Mayor Cooper.

NAYS: None.

Mayor Cooper opened the Public Hearing pertaining to Item # 11.D. Seeing no
speakers, the Public Hearing was closed.

MOTION BY VICE-MAYOR JULIAN, SECOND BY COMMISSIONER SCHILLER, TO
APPROVE THE APPLICATION FOR MAJOR DEVELOPMENT FOR THE
MILLENNIUM PROJECT AT 2500 EAST HALLANDALE BEACH AND THE
ASSOCIATED DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT, AS AMENDED. The motion carried by
voice vote, 5/0.

   E. Application # 14-07-CL by Florida Tatiana Club Inc. requesting a 6:00 A.M.
      Nightclub License for the property located at 1710 E Hallandale Beach
      Blvd. (Request by Margaret Abolsky, Applicant)

City Manager Good advised the application is requesting a nightclub license which will
extend the closing time from 2:00 A.M. to 6:00 A.M. An evaluation has been completed
and there have been no calls for service since the club opened in December, 2006. The
former business, Club Pearl, had calls for service. Accordingly, staff is recommending
approval.

Commissioner Schiller noted improvements to the club and Vice Mayor Julian stated he
was pleased there had been no calls for service.

The owner of the club, Walter Abolsky, was introduced.

Mayor Cooper opened the Public Hearing. Seeing no speakers, the Public Hearing was
closed.

MOTION BY VICE-MAYOR JULIAN, SECOND BY COMMISSIONER ROSS, TO
APPROVE THE APPLICATION EXTENDING THE CLOSING TIME TO 6:00 A.M. FOR
FLORIDA TATIANA CLUB, INC. LOCATED AT 1710 EAST HALLANDALE BEACH
BLVD. The motion carried by voice vote, 5/0.

   F. An Ordinance of the City of Hallandale Beach, Florida, Providing for
      Imposition of a Moratorium on the Issuance of Major Development Orders
      and Permits and on the Processing of Development Applications and Land
      Use Plan and Zoning Amendments within the City; Exempting Specified
      Development; Providing for Vested Rights; Waivers; Appeals; and
      Exhaustion of Administrative Remedies; Providing for a Six (6) Month
      Term, to be Extended if Necessary by the City Commission; Providing for


June 20, 2007                           - 15 -
       Severability, Conflicts, and an Effective Date (First Reading)(Staff:
       Director, Development Services)(see backup) CAD# 027/07

City Manager Good provided background on the item including issues related to
development and redevelopment within the City and the City’s ability to have sufficient
information and adequate redevelopment tools in place for orderly and fair development
approvals. The Master Plan is anticipated to be completed in about six months which will
include planning tools such as Regional Activity Centers (RAC) and Local Activity
Centers (LAC). These tools are needed as the City currently has only 670 flex units.
The goal is to have a Master Plan for community development whereby
projects/improvements sustain themselves.

The proposed Ordinance instituting the Moratorium is based on allowing projects to go
forward, or being exempted from the Moratorium, which have been reviewed by the
Development Review Committee (DRC). The Ordinance does include provisions for a
remedy through an administrative appeals process.

Mayor Cooper stated she is not clear on what projects are and are not subject to the
Moratorium based on the proposed Ordinance.

Commissioner London spoke in favor of the six month moratorium as a reasonable
period of time. This approach indicates the City cares about current residents.

Vice Mayor Julian also spoke in favor of the six month moratorium and a way to prepare
for “smart” development.

Commissioner Ross stated she favored the moratorium as to “fail to plan is a plan to
fail”. A comprehensive, professional Master Plan is needed by the City.

Commissioner Schiller noted her agreement with the Vice Mayor and the need to take
appropriate action to ensure traffic and transportation issues are addressed.

Mayor Cooper noted that the City has been conducting master planning in the past
which has been a guided path for growth. The City has new issues that affect
development and redevelopment. An update to the City’s Master Plan is needed and a
Moratorium will give staff time to complete same.

Mayor Cooper opened the Public Hearing.

Jack Jackson, 300 71st Street, Miami, FL, stated he represented Architect Works which
is involved with the proposed Hallandale International Trade Center project on N.E. 1st
Avenue. He is concerned about the effect of the Moratorium on the project.

Barbara Hall and Cliff Schulman, Greenberg Traurig law firm, stated they represent the
owners of the project at 600 East Hallandale Beach Blvd. They noted that the criteria for
exempting projects from the Moratorium was very important and that negotiations should
be allowed to continue concerning a large, $250 million dollar proposed project at 600
East Hallandale Beach Blvd. (U.S. 1 and East Hallandale Beach Blvd). They noted the
project application had been submitted to the City and the Commission was requested to
rule that if a project was submitted by June 20, 2007 it would be exempt from the
moratorium.


June 20, 2007                            - 16 -
Michael McCourt, 826 Nash Street, commended the Commission on the Moratorium and
stated 6 or 9 months is not long enough.

Alan Rosenfeld, 2875 N.W. 119 Street, Aventura, Florida, spoke about the proposed
project at 918 South Federal Highway. He requested that the deadline date for submittal
of completed applications to the City be August 1, 2007. Further, he suggested that
applicants who do not meet the August 1, 2007 deadline would, however, be allowed to
proceed to the Development Review Committee (DRC) to obtain comments from staff.
Mr. Rosenfeld presented a rendering of the project to the Commission.

Richard Wasterstein, 1114 Concourse, Bay Harbor, Florida, spoke about the proposed
Hallandale Icon Project, 908 South Federal Highway, an office, hotel, residential and
commercial project. He requested that this project be exempted from a moratorium
because the developer has been in discussions with the City regarding a thirty foot right-
of-way which the City may want for roadway widening. A completed application cannot
be filed pending finalizing the right-of-way issue. Renderings of the proposed project
were displayed to the Commission.

Richard Shan, Shanco Development, stated his support of the Moratorium but noted his
proposed business center project on the site of the Moffitt House on South Dixie
Highway has been delayed because the City and Shanco have agreed to move the
Moffitt House next to the Curci House. Therefore, he recommends the Commission
exempt projects from the Moratorium which are related to executed Development
Agreements with the City.

Steven Geller noted it is his opinion that the Moratorium does not affect platting nor is it
applicable to the Bert Harris Act. Further, he has legal questions and due process
concerns associated with the Moratorium if an applicant has filed a project with the City.
He stated that the fact that the City has not been able to take a project to the DRC
because of the City’s workload should not subject the project to the Moratorium. He
noted that the Domus project is on the exempt projects listing.

Edwin Stacker noted the Village at Gulfstream Park project has been approved and he
does not anticipate it will be subject to the Moratorium.

Mayor Cooper closed the Public Hearing.

Mayor Cooper asked if there is flexibility in the proposed Ordinance.

City Manager Good noted the Commission could consider such criteria as the filing date
of a project with the City, whether the project is associated with an executed
development agreement, and whether the project has already been approved through
the DRI process. Major developments at pari-mutuels submitted by a certain date could
be exempted. Minor projects should be exempt. We need to define major and minor
projects.

Mayor Cooper noted Section 2. of the Ordinance regarding Vested Rights provides
some guidance.




June 20, 2007                              - 17 -
Susan Travarthon noted she assisted the City in preparation of the proposed Ordinance.
Section 2 of the Ordinance as discussed by Mayor Cooper is in the Ordinance to protect
the City. A policy direction is needed on what is exempted and the exemption must be
clear and consistent. Policy should be easily derived and applied.

Mayor Cooper stated using a date certain filing date for projects is an approach and
suggested using the June 20, 2007 date.

Vice Mayor Julian stated that projects tied to executed development agreements with the
City should be exempted. Rather than using today’s date, stipulating August 1, 2007 as
the date for filing projects should be considered.

City Attorney Jove clarified the Moratorium Ordinance takes effect on Second Reading.
However, the Commission can stipulate a date certain such as today’s date as the cut
off date for receipt of applications that are exempted from the Moratorium.

City Manager Good stated the filing cut off date should have a significant impact on the
number of projects being exempted as the number and density of units, traffic and
water/sewer considerations may not allow a project to proceed. City Manager Good
advised the August 1, 2007 filing date deadline would increase the number of projects
and curtail the City’s ability to have planning tools in place which could assist the
developers.

Commissioner Schiller expressed concern about developers who have made substantial
investments in projects having to be on hold for six months.

Mayor Cooper suggested considering types of development as a criterion for exemption
such as Hotel and Hotel related uses.

Commissioner Ross stated she supports June 20, 2007 as the cut off date for filing
applications for projects that would be exempted from the Moratorium.

Mayor Cooper noted agreement with the June 20, 2007 date but also requested that
staff look at creating exemptions tied to specific uses and for projects not requiring
allocation of flex units.

Commissioner London noted he is in agreement with the June 20, 2007 date.

Susan Travarthon noted the Ordinance as presented on Second Reading could be less
restrictive than the document presented on First Reading but could not be more
restrictive without re-advertising and going back to First Reading.

Commissioner Ross recommended exempting the pari-mutuels from the moratorium,
exempting developers with executed development agreements with the City, exempting
projects which have gone through the DRI approval process and establishing today,
June 20, 2007, as the deadline for filing projects.

Mayor Cooper noted she agreed with the cut off date being today but wanted to consider
development of exemption criteria based on specific project types.




June 20, 2007                            - 18 -
Commissioner London noted he agreed with the cut off date being today but did not
support development of exemption criteria based on specific project types.



MOTION BY VICE-MAYOR JULIAN, SECOND BY COMMISSIONER ROSS, TO
APPROVE A DEVELOPMENT MORATORIUM SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING
CONDITIONS:

           1. COMPLETE APPLICATIONS FILED WITH THE CITY AS OF JUNE 20,

           2. PROJECTS     RELATED    TO   EXECUTED     DEVELOPMENT
              AGREEMENTS WITH THE CITY WILL BE EXEMPTED FROM THE

AYES: Commissioners Ross and Schiller; Vice-Mayor Julian; Mayor Cooper.

NAYS: Commissioner London

NOTE:           COMMISSIONER LONDON VOTED NO BECAUSE HE IS NOT IN
                FAVOR OF PROVISION #3 ABOVE OF THE MOTION.

NOTE:           SECOND READING TO BE PLACED ON THE AUGUST 1, 2007
                AGENDA

Development Services Director Cannone noted that the number of exempted projects
based on section one of the above motion would be eleven.

   G. An Ordinance of the City of Hallandale Beach, Florida, Amending Chapter
      Administration, Article II City Commission, Section 2-31 of the Code of
      Ordinances, Entitled Compensation and Expenses of City Commission to
      Provide for Consideration of Same Only During the City's Budget Cycle;
      and Providing for Conflict, Severability and an Effective Date
      (FirstReading)(City Attorney)(see backup) CAD# 031/07

City Manager Good discussed the purpose of the item and recommended that
consideration of second reading of the Ordinance be deferred until after the budget
process has been completed.

Commissioner Schiller commented that she understood second reading of the
Ordinance would be part of the budget process, not at the August 1, 2007 meeting.

Mayor Cooper clarified that the motion was to bring the item back for first reading at the
June 20, 2007 Commission meeting.




June 20, 2007                               - 19 -
Mayor Cooper opened the Public Hearing. Seeing no speakers, the Public Hearing was
closed.

Vice Mayor Julian moved approval. The motion died for lack of a second.

Commissioner Ross noted she was concerned about approving an incremental increase
when the amount of the salary was insufficient as a primary income. Nevertheless, she
was willing to second the motion to approve the Ordinance as presented.

City Manager Good advised that his recommendation to consider second reading after
the budget process was to allow consideration of Commissioner Ross’s concern.
Mayor Cooper confirmed that the motion was made and seconded and second reading
of the Ordinance will be on August 1, 2007.

Vice Mayor Julian asked if August 1, 2007 was appropriate as his understanding was
that second reading would be after the budget process.

City Manager Good suggested that the approval indicate that second reading would
occur when ready.

Mayor Cooper asked if there were any recommended changes to the Ordinance at this
time. Seeing none, she stated that the Ordinance should be ready for second reading
on August 1, 2007.

Vice Mayor Julian stated he wanted to go through the budget process before the
Ordinance is presented for second reading.

Mayor Cooper noted that the impact of the property tax legislation on the financial
position of the City is already known and passing this Ordinance should not have an
adverse affect on the City’s financial position.

Vice Mayor Julian asked when the budget would be presented to the Commission.

City Manager Good stated that since the property tax legislation had been passed
sooner than anticipated, the budget should be ready to present to the Commission in
early August.

MOTION BY VICE-MAYOR JULIAN, SECOND BY COMMISSIONER ROSS, TO
APPROVE THE ORDINANCE ON FIRST READING AND SET SECOND READING
FOR AUGUST 1, 2007. The motion carried by a roll call vote, as follows:

AYES: Commissioners London, Ross and Schiller; Vice-Mayor Julian; Mayor Cooper.

NAYS: None

   H. An Ordinance of the City of Hallandale Beach, Florida, Amending the City
      Code of Ordinances, Chapter 10, Budget and Taxation, Article II, "Budget
      Transfers", Section 10-31, "Authority for Budget Transfers"; Providing for
      Greater Flexibility and Utilization of Budgeted Funds; Providing for
      Conflicts; Providing for Severability; and Providing for an Effective Date
      (First Reading)(City Manager) (see backup) CAD# 030/07


June 20, 2007                           - 20 -
City Manager Good advised the current Code does not allow for the City Manager to
utilize lapsed salary funds to hire outside services while a position is vacant. With a
tightened budget, greater flexibility is needed to use lapsed salary funds. The proposed
amendment grants the City Manager authority to utilize lapsed salary funds to hire
needed services on a temporary basis.

Robert Fraidenburg, Assistant Director, Finance, noted this Ordinance enables the City
Manager to move lapsed salary funds from personnel services accounts to operating
accounts on an as needed basis. In response to how the Commission will be notified of
the transfers, Mr. Fraidenburg advised the Ordinance stipulates that the Commission will
be notified in writing of any transfer in excess of the City Manager’s purchasing authority
which is $50,000.

Commissioner London stated that the City Manager’s authority under this Ordinance
should be limited to $200,000 during a fiscal year. If additional funds are needed, he
would need further Commission approval.

Mayor Cooper suggested that rather than a cap for all transactions, an individual cap of
$25,000 per transaction could be imposed which is the level of City Manager purchasing
authority for engaging consultants. Commissioner London asked how many transactions
could the City Manager make based on this suggestion.

City Manager Good clarified that there are four positions in the Building Division
provided by Broward County and $50,000 can be expended in a short period of time. He
is asking to be able to use funding already allocated for personnel services for the same
purpose. It is proper accounting to transfer funds into the operating accounts from which
the expenses are made so the expenditures can be tracked. Further, the Commission
will be advised of each transfer exceeding $50,000 to fill a vacant position and receive
an update of the cumulative amounts.

Mayor Cooper noted that it is proper to carefully consider affording the City Manager
authority previously held by the City Commission and asked how long a typical budget
transfer of this type would take to process. City Manager Good noted the process
typically takes about ten days. Mayor Cooper suggested that the Ordinance be
amended on line 48 whereby the City Manager would notify the Commission of the
budget transfer exceeding the City Manager’s purchasing authority level at the time the
transfer is initiated. The notification would include the amount of the transfer and the
cumulative amount spent.          Commissioner London advised this approach was
satisfactory.

Mayor Cooper opened the Public Hearing. Seeing no speakers, the Public Hearing was
closed.

MOTION BY COMMISSIONER SCHILLER, SECOND BY COMMISSIONER ROSS, TO
ADOPT THE ORDINANCE ON FIRST READING WITH THE REVISIONS TO LINE 48
AS DISCUSSED BY THE COMMISSION AND BRING BACK FOR SECOND READING
ON AUGUST 1, 2007. The motion carried by a roll call vote, as follows:

AYES: Commissioners London, Ross and Schiller; Vice-Mayor Julian; Mayor Cooper.
