At 3:30 p.m. Mayor Charles J. Hosti called the meeting to order. The following members of Council were on hand: John C. Wylly, Jr., Jeanne M. Hutton, James L. Fabrikant, Jr., Klima J. McCutchen, Jerome W. Bettencourt and Sebastian J. Orsini. City Attorney and Recorder, Thomas J. Mahoney, Jr., was also present. Mayor Hosti welcomed an unusually large crowd of Tybee Island citizens. During his welcoming remarks the Mayor commended the city council membg'ts for working so hard during the past few weeks - the period of time between their election and their assuming office. He then called for visitors from the audience who wished to speak before Council but there were none so the meeting was opened for business legally pre- sented. Minutes of the meetings of June 9, 1982 and July 7, 1982 were approved as written. The motion to do so was made by Councilman Orsini, Councilman Bettencourt seconded and the motion carried by unanimous vote. Bills for the month of June, 1982 were approved as follows: Sanitation Department - $2,375.80, Public Works - $4,723.26, Parking Meters - $65.89, Police Department - $6,010.17, Fire Department - $312.91, Water Department - $2,419.65, Sewer Department - $12,123.94, General Government - $1,564.45, as well as Capital Expenditures of $9,945.86, and Other Expenses totalling $198.00. Ceramics expenditures were $106.16 and Recreation - $954.83. Mayor Hosti informed the Council members and public that the City Attorney, Mr. Mahoney, will act as Parliamentarian for the Council, if it so desires. Council accepted Mr. Mahoney without dissent. Finance Committee Chairman John Wylly reported that a request for a license for a physician has been received and that no such license is currently scheduled. There followed a discussion and a motion setting the license fee at $100.00, by Councilman Wylly. City Attorney Mahoney informed Council that there is a pro- vision in the City Code which sets unscheduled license categories at $25.00. Mr. Wylly then stated that he is personally very pleased to have Dr. Kessler open an office here on Tybee, and that he withdraws his earlier motion. He then moved that the annual fee for physician's license be set at $25.00. The public was 1 1 1 34 July 14, 1982 Page 'i io informed that Dr. Kessler plans to open at least one day per week, and that his office will be located next to Beach Drugs on Sixteenth Street. He will, with the help of physician friends, keep the office open on weekends to be available to summer visitors. Councilman Wylly continued his report from the Finance Committee by stating that the budget for FY'83 is being studied, and he has already noted that salary increases were not included in the budget. Mayor Hosti added that the budget was based on 12 mils, but that the former Council had begun a procedure to reduce the millage to 9 mils. Councilwoman Hutton stated that the cost of closing the landfill facility is not budgeted. Councilman Fabrikant stated that the police department needs some equipment that is not budgeted, including another police car. He informed the audience that some of the guns being used are thirty years old. Councilwoman McCutchen reported that the Fire Department needs a new snorkel truck, that the water lines along Butler Avenue need enlarging, and that there is a need for more firemen who will have to be equipped. Councilman Bettencourt reported that a maintenance contract, which is included in the '83 budget, has been signed to keep up Jaycee Park. Councilman Orsini stated that the water and sewer departments have many needs, some of them immediate, and all of them expensive. He reported that pumps are needed at Lift Station #6, and that a total lack of maintenance at the sewer treatment plant has caused a complete renovation to become necessary. He told of a collapsed sewer line discovered on July 9th - these pipes are more than 40 years old and must be replaced at a cost of $15 to $18 thousand dollars. Councilperson Hutton reported that a schedule is being worked up for beach cleaning and that more trash cans for the beach and public areas are being procured. She reported that a public relations campaign is underway to promote a cleaner beach, and that she and others will be attending a workshop on clean community systems in August. She added that Dr. John Bozeman of Coastal Protection is going to look at possible sites for a dry trash landfill and that ordinances are being prepared which will promote efficiency in trash and garbage service. She added that work is underway on a master plan for the public works and sanitation depart - ments that will define responsibilities and schedules. Councilman Wylly noted that the appearance of the beach is 100 percent better already, and complimented Ms. Hutton on her leadership. Councilman Wylly then explained that the former council had begun to implement 1 1 35 July 14, 1982 Page Three a tax decrease but that no resolution had been adopted. Since the City Code requires that the millage be set yearly by resolution, he moved that the City Attorney be in structed to draw such a Resolution, setting the millage for FY '83 at 12 mils. Councilman Fabrikant seconded, and the motion carried unanimously. A letter dated July 14, 1982 from Russell Finland to the Clerk, requesting an extention of a PUD for a project known as Battery Point Townhouses, was read. The letter was referred to the city attorney. Mayor Hosti then informed the Council that Arnold J. Seyden, Jr., presently serving as chairman of the Tybee Island Planning Commission, had been serving the remainder of a term which expired in June, 1982. Mayor Hosti recommended that Mr. Seyden be reappointed for a full four -year term which will expire on March 1, 1986. Ms. Hutton moved that'the Mayor's recommendation be accepted, Councilman Orsini seconded and the motion passed unanimously. Mayor Hosti then offered the name of Carl Thompson to be appointed to the planning commission for a four -year term which will expire March 1, 1986. This appointment is being made to replace Ms. Julianne J. Meyers, former Councilwoman, who served as Council liaison during her term on City Council. Mayor Hosti announced that he has asked the Mayor pro tem, Mr. Sebastian J. Orsini, to serve as Council liaison but that he is opposed to one person having two votes - Mr. Orsini will not have a vote on the Planning Commission. Councilman Bettencourt moved that Mr. Thompson be accepted and Councilman Orsini seconded. The vote was unanimously in favor. Mayor Hosti then explained that Mr. Orsini has been serving on the Tybee Island Recreation Board since its formation, but that he has resigned in order to devote his time to his other responsibilities. He offered the name of Mrs. Dorothy Hosti to fill this term which will expire on December 1, 1982. Councilman Fabrikant moved that Mrs. Hosti be accepted, Councilman Orsini seconded and the motion passed unanimously. Councilman Fabrikant informed the Council that Savannah Electric & Power Company has recommended that three additional street lights be placed on Sixteenth Street, and moved that this recommendation be implemented. Councilman Orsini seconded the motion which carried by unanimous vote. Mayor Hosti noted that this is a project begun by the former administration, namely Councilman Nick Alexander, and that he is pleased his administration has been able to ccntinue and complete it. 1 1 1 36 July 14, 1982 Page Four Councilman Wylly introduced the first reading of an ordinance changing the time of the regular Council meetings. Councilman Bettencourt moved its adoption, Councilperson McCutchen seconded and the vote was recorded as follows: in favor - Councilmenibers Bettencourt, McCutchen, Wylly and Fabrikant; against - Councilmem- bers Hutton and Orsini. Second reading of the ordinance is scheduled for the next regular meeting, August 14th. Mayor Hosti then opened the meeting to public comment, announcing that the business portion of the meeting was completed, and invited the citizens present to participate since their help is needed to meet the goals set by this governing body. Mr. Irving Ruben commended the lifeguards, -- saying that they are doing an excellent job patrolling the beaches, and that public behavior is being improved by their efforts. Mr. Jim Lynes asked if a toll at the island's city limits is being investigated and was answered affirmatively. Mayor Hosti asked the citizens to give this new Mayor and Council a little time to turn Tybee's image around. He told them that he is personally working six to eight hours daily, and that the entire council is enthusiastically working, too. He promised that Tybee will soon be one of the prettiest beaches on the east coast, and one of the best places to live. The meeting was then adjourned. 1 1 1 AGREEMENT THIS AGREEMENT made on 21 day of June 1982 by and between The City of (Name of Owner) Tybee Island, P.O.
