F. ADVISORY BOARD APPOINTMENTS
DiSabatino -- The new charter school had their ribbon cutting, there are already 600 students signed up. We need to discuss reducing code enforcement fines for new businesses if they pay-up right away.
Gallen -- It's the Palmetto "Relay For Life" cure for cancer coming up on the 18th and we are looking for leaders. I was at the jail last week working on a program that prepares inmates for re-entry into the public. I was there in the capacity of helping to secure funds for the program. And, while driving across the Desoto Bridge I could see that that is the best seat in the house for watching the new skateboard park.
Whitmore -- Palmetto was discussing starting a "Housing Authority" and want members from Bradenton's and Manatee's authority to sit in on their first meeting to offer up some advice.
Chappie -- Just want to thank Commissioner McClash for the brilliant idea and insight and the work he put into the "Florida International Gateway." It was something simple that worked perfectly.
