BRADENTON -- At Tuesday's BOCC Meeting, commissioners had a full plate. County Attorney Bill Clague struggled to convince the board and citizens that there really weren't many changes in the "Wetland Ordinance" revisions, but it was nonetheless important to make them now. Cheri Coryea from Neighborhood Services shared the successes that the Rubonia Civic Center is experiencing in its second try to make things work, and the meeting also included some great citizens' comments.

APPROVAL OF CONSENT AGENDA
28. Motion to approve Consent Agenda -- Approved, Unanimous
CITIZEN COMMENTS --
1. Loretto Sadkin commented on the 44th avenue extension / 46th Street widening committee, and wanted to know, what was happening? Sadkin said, "What is happening with the emails we have sent, what is happening with the completed comment cards? Please include us on your next agenda." Sadkin said the construction cost has risen 39 percent, and that hers and other concerned groups had the signatures and would bring them to that meeting.
Commissioner DiSabatino made a motion to have the item put on the next agenda, and said that she had been asking for the courtesy for months. Commissioners agreed to a May 21 date and DiSabatino's motion -- Approved, Unanimous
2. Lee Redfern commented on her experience with the county transit system and how getting someone to respond with an answer to where and when she might find a bus is difficult. The replays were patronizing and inadequate. Redfern suggested the commissioners take the bus for two weeks, "See what it is like," then added, "It would never be the same."
3. William Wheeler wanted to discuss the poor excuses the county was giving for not having the proper divide to measure sound pollution. "They told me one cost thousands of dollars. I found an assortment of them for hundreds. Wheeler also referenced Ed Hunzeker's portrayal of his plan, "The property taxes will go up if you don't support the plan. There is no plan B, take this to the people, forget the pie charts and dance lessons."

E. ADVERTISED PUBLIC HEARINGS
31. Ordinance 13-04 - Land Development Code Section 719 (Wetlands) - Bill Clague - Legislative
Attachment: Section 719 Wetlands Draft 5.pdf
Attachment: Draft Ordinance No. 13-04 - Comparison.pdf
Attachment: Copy of Newspaper Advertising.pdf -- There was no action scheldued on this item for today, just a presentation and citizen comments. County Attorney Bill Clague walked Commissioners and others through his 58 page presentation, stating frequently how absolutely important it was to go forward with the Ordinance changes, whether the Commission later changes the Comp Plan or not.
A variety of citizen leaders shared their comments to why rushing to rewrite the ordinance was a bad idea. Clague refused to entertain any of their suggestions, warned of lawsuits and reminded the Commission that what they have been doing over the last few years hasn't been in compliance with State Statute.
Clague said he didn't have any stake in what the commission would finally decide, and repeatedly denied that the changes favored either side of the argument, but sitting in his corner were Carlos Beruff, Pat Neal, and Hugh Maguire. Beruff and Neal are the largest builders in the region and Maguire represents them both, as well as Mosaic mining. The three have had more wetland issues brought before the commission then any other applicants. -- (More on the Story to follow)
32. Rubonia Community Center Update Attachment: Rubonia Report.pdf -- Neighborhood Services Director, Cheri Coryea, presented an inspirational snap-shot of what has conspired over the last six months at the Rubonia Civic Center.
In the fall of 2012, the center had closed for lack of activity. Coryea accepted the challenge to reorganize the curriculum, invited assorted activities for people of all ages, and brought the attendance up to an encouraging level. Recreation, book club, health seminars and many life skill-set issues have found the center. Coryea suggested taking the momentum through the summer, and petitioned the commission for assistance.
Both Commissioners DiSabatino and Gallen presented motions that would produce the $20,000 needed to carry the program through the summer. At first, there was some resistance by other commissioners, then the motion was amended. The amended motion was to have staff find a way that could produce the funds needed and present a plan within the next three weeks. -- Approved, Unanimous (Story to Follow)

G. REPORTS COMMISSIONER AGENDA COMMISSIONER COMMENTS
35. Commissioner Comments
Baugh -- Has anyone looked at Florida Trend? Last month 573 houses were built.
Benac -- I have the MPO Map-21 PDF if anyone wants to look at it.
Gallen -- Barbara Harvey wants to know about transportation for the MTI students. The Agenda comes late on Thursday, is there anyway we could get it sooner so we could have more time to study it?
Bustle -- We should add the Sheriff's report to the Dashboard report.
Chappie -- Excellent event at IMG. What was our final on the Coquina access road, on the bay side?
DiSabatino -- The six year old that lost his life, is very sad. The question came up in a letter, Mr. Palmer are external audits mandatory?
Whitmore -- I went to the Homeless Walk-a-thon at Coquina Beach. On Riverview Blvd. and 6600 was an add advertising "renting overnight." We could change the law for the next year. Commissioner Gallen said, "It's not a problem around me. Maybe they are trying to save their house from foreclosure."
