33. Commissioner Comments -- 

Whitmore -- Asked if the County attorney could look into the bus passes not being available? -Said she attended the Medical Examiner meeting, they assist in death investigation -- prepared the annual work load report. USF started it first, it's a four year program, 86 students singed up, their goals are going to be geared more around work force.

DiSabatino -- New Publix is opening on Lockwood Ridge Rd. Neal and Medallion are moving West. And I believe the Holiday Inn at SRQ is full service.  

Chappie -- None

Gallen -- Solid waste is an issue, lower garbage rates, Hillsborough adopted automatic curbside pick-up. One other item, statement on legal service funding, would like to make a motion. Manasota provides indigent care pro-bono -- entire families with small chilldren; increase appropriations to Manasota and Gulf Coast Legal and United Way

Baugh -- I don't feel comfortable. I have been getting e mails on this. About not doing what they we're suppose to do.

Gallen - We shouldn't get involved in the day to day.

Bustle - the attorneys were fired by the director

DiSabatino - We should just do what we have been doing in the past.

Whitmore - consider withdrawing the motion until we find out more

Gallen - withdrew the motion to a later date.

Benac -- TBARTA -- meeting was about automated vehicles, they are not that far off. Florida is one of the few states that allow automated cars. All Aboard Florida is a private group interested in the rail from Orlando to Ft Lauderdale.  

Baugh -- John H. Marble Pool & Spa, I met with a group that are looking for a location. We would like to see some outreach. Motion to keep the pool open one more year unit we can find something. -- Approved, Unanimous 

Bustle -- Rate approval for high school athletics -- are the pools rated for competition? --  New Hampton Inn (pink palace) has no bar or restaurant, that bothers me, I don't know if we should get involved or not. Met with Rubonia assoc. these folks want the center to reopen. Will the school board turn it over to a group or non-profit? It is closed and no funds to reopen it. They are looking for any solution.

Ed Hunzeker -- (on the John Marvell pool) We need to inventory all of the pools, see what is available.

(on mechanical trash pick-up containers) - All of the companies offer the containers.
