Manatee County Commission Agenda Results: 5/21/2013


BRADENTON -- At Tuesday's county commissioner meeting, board members approved a request for another bus route proposal and the "consent" agenda, where you'll often find some of the bad news. In that portion of the meeting,"Meals on Wheels" had their budget cut by almost $6,000 (item #15) and their partner in helping the needy "Adult Day Care" was also cut by more than $16,000 (Item #16). In other business, over 100 citizens showed-up to express their dissatisfaction with a report on a $70 million, 20-year-old road job that those opposed to it call the "Road to Nowhere."

Public Works (1:30 P.M. TIME CERTAIN)

39. 44th Avenue East -- The 44th Avenue project dates back over 20 years and the multi-facet segments have had some problems. Commissioners asked staff to put the big picture together so they could look for a road map and continue with the stumbling project. -- (Story to follow)



40. Commissioner Comments

Whitmore -- Was concerned that there was an independent agency that was going to oversee the BP money coming to the 23 counties from the BP settlement. County Attorney Palmer explained there was no need to be alarmed. Whitmore said she didn't want the funds to get side-tracked.

DiSabatino -- First brought up the 26/13 plan, the often mentioned tax break and the connection it has with the half-cent tax referendum on the county website and on commercials on TV. DiSabatino produced a document confusing the two issues, and was suspicious of the intentions. Commissioner DiSabatino's comments set-off a storm of criticism and disagreement among the commissioners and the county administrator Ed Hunzeker. DiSabatino put out a motion to stifle referencing the two together on the county website. Motion was seconded but not supported. The vote, 4 to 3, Disabatino, Gallen and Baugh dissent. -- (Full Story to Follow)

Baugh -- Agreed with a lot of what DiSabatino was saying and agreed that the county should refrain from mentioning the two different subjects (26/13 and 0.5 cent sales tax) as if they are connected. 

Benac -- Reenforced Palmer's explanation on the BP funds and then gave her assessment of DiSabatino's concerns as to what was being labeled "misinformation. Benac didn't agree with DiSabatino's portrayal of the  group that was circulating the rumors and deliberatly confusing the two issues. 

Gallen -- Agreed with DiSabatino and wanted some clarification as to the confusion that has been sent by the group and the county. Gallen says he is embarrassed to have it on the county's website.

Chappie -- A few times Chappie got upset with Disabatino for no certain reason other then for sticking to her guns in the discussion. Chappie kept waving his hands and asking DiSabatino to reference what group it was that she was complaining about.
