1.     PRESENTATIONS

       A.     EXCELLENCE IN ACTION AWARD

              Mayor Friszolowski presented an Excellence in Action Award to Connie Kest for
              “showing us the reward of working together with attention to the interests of all”
              by organizing a team from the City that participated in the American Cancer
              Society’s “Relay for Life” and raised $2,500.

       B.     RECOGNITION OF GULF BEACHES ELEMENTARY SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS

              Marsha Jordan, Principal of Gulf Beaches Elementary School, stated that ten
              Outstanding School Volunteers were selected each year and proudly announced
              that, out of 280 nominees, two of those ten were from Gulf Beaches Elementary
              – Joanne Zumpe and Bill Livingston.

              Ms. Jordan also took this opportunity to thank Mr. Bonfield and the City of St.
              Pete Beach for initiating a mentoring/tutoring program at Gulf Beaches
              Elementary.

       C.     IMPLEMENTATION OF STORMWATER UTILITY FEE

              Scott Graubard, the City’s Public Works Director, made a presentation regarding
              the possibility of implementing a stormwater utility fee to pay for managing
              stormwater quality in St. Pete Beach. His presentation included:
                   • the current stormwater level of service
                   • pressing issues, reasons for concern, and available options
                   • benefits of a stormwater utility fee to both residents and businesses
                   • fee assessment and billing statistics and fees currently charged by other
                      local municipalities
                   • steps to be taken in implementing a stormwater utility.

                Mr. Graubard noted that implementation of a stormwater utility fee could
                generate revenues of about $325,000, which would be used to implement a
                preventative maintenance program, increase stormwater capacity, and enhance
                stormwater quality.

                The possibility of implementing a stormwater utility fee in St. Pete Beach was
                then discussed by the Commission and Mr. Graubard, and all Commissioners
                expressed interest in taking the first step towards implementing such a fee which,
                according to Mr. Graubard, would take about 9-12 months.

                Mayor Friszolowski then called for audience comments.

                Harry Metz, 504 Pass-a-Grille Way, recalled that Mr. Graubard stated single-
                family homes would probably be charged $3.00 per month, but wondered what
                hotels and condominiums would pay. Mayor Friszolowski replied that charges
                would be based on the ERU (equivalent residential unit) concept, which was
                3,150 square feet of impermeable area, and that it would depend on the size of
                the property. Mr. Metz then suggested charging a higher price to condos and a
                lesser price to hotels/motels since the City wanted to encourage hotel/motel
                development. He also stated that he was in favor of implementing this fee.

                Mr. Bonfield declared that the City would develop a more detailed plan for formal
                approval at a future Commission meeting, possibly as early as next month.

        F.      APPROVAL OF STREET CLOSURE, ADDITIONAL SIDEWALK SALES AND
                DISPLAY, AND USE OF CITY RIGHT-OF-WAY FOR THE SPECIAL EVENT
                REQUESTED BY THE COREY AVENUE MERCHANTS ASSOCIATION FOR
                JUNE 5-6, 2004

                         A motion was made by Commissioner Kreider to approve the
                         Consent Agenda by reading its title in its entirety. The motion was
                         seconded by Vice Mayor Nicklaus and approved by a unanimous roll
                         call vote.

3.      ORDINANCE 2004-12, FINAL READING AND PUBLIC HEARING, AN ORDINANCE
        OF THE CITY OF ST. PETE BEACH, FLORIDA PROVIDING FOR THE DESIGNATION
        OF 42ND AVENUE FROM BELLE VISTA DRIVE TO MOODY STREET AND 43RD
        AVENUE FROM BELLE VISTA DRIVE TO MOODY STREET AS A “CONTROLLED
        PARKING RESIDENTIAL AREA”; PROVIDING FOR THE ISSUANCE OF PARKING
        DECALS TO THE RESIDENTS IN THE DESIGNATED AREA; PROVIDING FOR
        SEVERABILITY; PROVIDING FOR THE REPEAL OF ORDINANCES OR PARTS OF
        ORDINANCES IN CONFLICT HEREWITH, TO THE EXTENT OF SUCH CONFLICT;
        AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

        Mr. Bonfield noted that this was the Second and Final Reading of an ordinance enacting
        permitted parking only on 42nd and 43rd Avenues from Belle Vista Drive east to Moody.
        He then provided a breakdown of the votes, which showed that residents of 43rd Avenue
        voted overwhelming in favor of permitted parking but the 42nd Avenue vote was only
        about 50/50. He then recommended that only 43rd Avenue become a permitted parking
        area for now and that 42nd Avenue be monitored to see if this change would cause
        parkers to move over to 42nd. He also stated that signs had been ordered and that he
        thought they could be installed prior to the Memorial Day weekend if the ordinance was
        approved.

        Mayor Friszolowski recommended that the ordinance be passed “as is” but that the City
        hold off on installing signs along 42nd Avenue for now since the vote was so evenly split.
        Commissioner Ruttencutter agreed, but also wanted the City to quickly respond if
        parkers moved over to 42nd Avenue. The possibility of having controlled parking only on
        weekends and holidays, which was when the majority of problems occurred, was also
        briefly discussed.

        City Attorney Driscoll stated that if the ordinance was approved as written, the City
        Manager would have to enforce the controlled parking on both 42nd and 43rd Avenues as
        of the effective date of the ordinance; however, the effective date for 42nd Avenue could
        be changed.

                A motion was made by Commissioner Ruttencutter to approve, on Final
                Reading, Ordinance 2004-12 with the following amendment: an effective
                implementation date of May 25, 2004 for 43rd Avenue and an effective
                implementation date of June 24, 2004 for 42nd Avenue. The motion was
                seconded by Commissioner Kreider.

        Mayor Friszolowski then called for public comments; there were none.

                The motion on the floor was then approved by a unanimous roll call vote.

     4. ORDINANCE NO. 2004-13, FIRST READING AND PUBLIC HEARING, AN
        ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF ST. PETE BEACH, FLORIDA PROVIDING FOR A
        PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENT IN FAVOR OF PINELLAS COUNTY, FLORIDA OVER
        THE PROPERTY LOCATED AT 165 – 75TH AVENUE; PROVIDING AUTHORIZATION
        TO THE CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE A UTILITY EASEMENT AGREEMENT;
        PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY; PROVIDING FOR THE REPEAL OF
        ORDINANCES OR PARTS OF ORDINANCES IN CONFLICT HEREWITH, TO THE
        EXTENT OF SUCH CONFLICT; AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

        Mr. Bonfield recalled that in May of 2003, the City entered into an inter-local agreement
        with Pinellas County to extend the reclaimed water main from Sunset Beach in Treasure
        Island to our main reclaimed water pump station at the Public Works yard to create a
        loop, which would improve the pressure and reliability of the system. He noted that this
        ordinance would approve the easement for that portion of the line through the Public
        Works yard.

                A motion was made by Commissioner Martohue to approve, on First
                Reading, Ordinance 2004-13 by reading its title in its entirety. The motion
                was seconded by Vice Mayor Nicklaus and approved by a unanimous roll
                call vote.

        next Commission meeting.

6.      FY2005-2009 CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN

        Mr. Bonfield stated that for the second year in a row, a five year Capital Improvement

            •   sewer line repairs to reduce inflow and infiltration ($60,000)
            •   force main replacement design work ($51,727)
            •   T.V. crawler with digital recorder for wastewater system ($45,000)

        Mr. Bonfield reported that proposed future capital improvements for FY2006-2009
        included replacing the City’s underground fuel tanks and the fuel site at Merry Pier;
        installing roll-down storm shutters at Fire Station #23; expanding the restrooms and
        replacing the roof at the Pass-a-Grille Concession Stand; replacing the lighting at the
        Egan Park ball fields; renovating the Hurley Park baseball field; and replacing the air
        conditioner at the Library.

        Commissioner Ruttencutter stated that he wanted to make it clear that the proposed Don
        Vista Park was not Block M.

        Mayor Friszolowski then called for audience comments; there were none.

                A motion was made by Vice Mayor Nicklaus to approve the FY 2005-2009
                Capital Improvement Plan as presented. The motion was seconded by
                Commissioner Kreider and approved by a unanimous voice vote.

7.      DISCUSSION OF RESTRICTING HOURS OF OPERATION AT THE EGAN PARK
        BOAT RAMP FROM 11:00 P.M. TO 5:00 A.M.

        Commissioner Martohue stated that she had been approached by several residents
        requesting that the hours of use at the Egan Park boat ramp be restricted, as were the
        hours of another City boat ramp adjacent to residences.

        This issue was discussed, with Mr. Bonfield noting that enforcement of the restricted
        hours would be difficult. Commissioner Ruttencutter stated that this issue was one of
        the problems encountered with mixed use. He also stated that he would like to know
        how big the problem was and who was causing it, as he would be more sympathetic to
        limiting the hours if the problem users were not residents of St. Pete Beach. As most
        Commissioners seemed supportive, an ordinance will be written and brought back to the
        Commission for further consideration.

8.      DEVELOPMENT REVIEW BOARD CASE NO. 20040014, REQUEST FOR
        CONDITIONAL USE OF POSSIBLE DRIVE-THROUGH AND OUTDOOR SEATING AT
        6101 GULF BOULEVARD.

        Mr. Bonfield reported that the applicant in this case was not aware they were supposed
        to be present tonight, so he requested that this request for a conditional use be
        continued to the next meeting.

                A motion was made by Commissioner Martohue to continue Development
                Review Board Case No. 20040014 to the next regularly scheduled
                Commission meeting. The motion was seconded by Vice Mayor Nicklaus.

        Commissioner Ruttencutter asked if this case would have to be re-noticed and was
        informed that it would not. Mayor Friszolowski pointed out that the next regularly
        scheduled Commission meeting would be on June 8, 2004.

                The motion on the floor was then approved by a unanimous roll call vote.

        Gulf Way Walkway – the sidewalk, the bump-outs, and the stucco on the wall have been
        completed from 10th to 22nd Avenue and the wall will be painted as soon as the color has
        been selected. Mr. Bonfield also noted that landscaping would be installed within a
        week or so and that work was continuing on the wall from 1st to 10th Avenue.

        Master Plan Workshop – scheduled for June 2nd at 6:00 p.m.

        Agreement with Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) – a verbal agreement has been reached
        with the FOP on a three year contract, which will modify the schedule to give the City
Minutes of City Commission Meeting
May 25, 2004
Page 7
        greater flexibility in scheduling training while assuring the officers a fixed schedule for a
        portion of the year. If ratified, the contract will be on the agenda of the June 8th
        Commission meeting for approval. Mr. Bonfield also noted that the City was continuing
        to meet the deadlines for the Special Master’s ruling in the event the agreement was not
        ratified.

        Out of Town – he would be out of town May 26-28 attending the Florida City and County
        Management Association’s Annual Conference and that Steve Gallaher would be acting
        City Manager in his absence.

        Condominium Conversion Study – Smith and Associates of Orlando was recently
        chosen to conduct this study by Pinellas County, so this project is still moving forward.

        District 1 Report

        Commissioner Martohue stated that letters, including a tentative meeting schedule,
        would be sent to all members of the Neighborhood Liaison Committees. She also urged
        residents of District 1 to attend the Master Planning Workshop on June 2nd.

        District 2 Report

        Vice Mayor Nicklaus encouraged District 2 residents to attend the Master Planning
        Workshop. She also suggested the possibility of creating a board to monitor the beach
        reports after the groins have been installed at Upham Beach. Mayor Friszolowski
        replied that Treasure Island had a similar “beach stewardship committee”. Mr. Bonfield
        added that St. Pete Beach could create such a committee and that he would provide
        further information regarding this matter to the Commission at their next meeting.

        District 3 Report

        Commissioner Ruttencutter urged all City residents to attend the Master Planning
        Workshops, as it was “for them”.

        District 4 Report

        Commissioner Kreider declared that work on the wall along Gulf Way was progressing
        and that she would be interested to see what paint color was ultimately chosen.

        Mayor’s Report

        Mayor Friszolowski reported that “Beach Goes Pops” had another successful year and
        that the two night format seemed to work well.

8.      AUDIENCE COMMENTS

        Elaine Walczewski, owner of property on Gulfwinds Drive and a resident of Tierra Verde,
        commented on one of the DRB cases (#20040010), stating that they did not want a
        parking lot in their neighborhood and that they did not feel they had been heard.

        Mayor Friszolowski asked Ms. Walczewski if she attended the DRB meeting. She
        responded that she and three others attended the meeting and, in addition, 28 other
Minutes of City Commission Meeting
May 25, 2004
Page 8
        people wrote a letter in opposition to the proposed veterinary clinic/kennel. Mayor
        Friszolowski then informed her that she had been heard at the DRB meeting. He also
        pointed out that the Commission received copies of all of the information from the DRB
        meetings, that they read that information, and that they took it into consideration when
        making their decisions.

        Commissioner Martohue agreed with Mayor Friszolowski and assured Ms. Walczewski
        that she had been heard. Commissioner Ruttencutter disclosed that he had attended
        that particular DRB meeting and had heard all of the discussion. He then encouraged
        Ms. Walczewski to attend the June 2nd Master Planning Workshop, when changes to
        that area of St. Pete Beach would be discussed.

        Harry Metz commented on the boat ramp hours, noting that many fishermen go 70-80
        miles offshore so must leave by 3 or 4 a.m. to get to their fishing spot and that they
        sometimes don’t return until midnight. He also suggested that, if there was a ruckus at a
        boat ramp, people call the police.

9.      ADJOURNMENT

        There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:50 p.m.
