Parker presided and the following members of Council were present: Jack Youmans, Bill Walsh, Paul Jackson, Jean Davis and John O'Neill. Chris Solomon was absent, out of town with a youth group on a Recreation Dept. outing. Mayor Parker first read a plaque that will be presented to A.P. Solomon, III on Saturday at his 80th birthday party. He stated that Perry had been invited to accept this plaque at the meeting, but was unable to be present tonight, having just arrived back from the Recreation Dept. Little League trip. He announced that Perry is retiring "not to work with his tools for money ", but has promised to be available to help the city in other ways, and will continue to make the park & recreation inspections for the rest of the summer. Barbara Kiley, Tax Commissioner, was present and recognized. She spoke of her campaign for the elected position she holds and of her 27 years experience in the tax office, asking people to vote for her in November. Tim Harden, commander of the Hobie Fleet 294 which sails off Center Street, spoke of the excellent cooperation between the group and the city, and presented a plaque to the city which was accepted by Mayor Parker. Phil Fortson of Savannah Wood Preserving Company, Inc. spoke to advocate recycling of glass bottles, saying that collection will begin on August 24th and that his company will accept products for recycling from 1 to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. He said he believes a civic group or church could get behind the collection effort here on Tybee and add $3500. or more to their treasuries per year. Dorothy Kirschbaum presented a letter to the Mayor and Council asking for a hearing before a Recreation Review /Appeals Board on a matter having to do with the midget football program. The Board has been appointed by Mayor Parker and is constituted as follows: Mayor Council Committee for Recreation Chairman of the Tybee Recreation Board Tybee Island Recreation Director These members will meet as called to hear appeals from decisions made by coaches and program supervisors or other city volunteers and /or employees. Mrs. Cathy Williams spoke for the Beach Litter Committee, presenting a handout to the City Council. She commended the Council for appointing an independent cor littee and said that the committee needs Council's approval and support. 1 1 Tybee Island, Georgia August 11, 1988 Page Two Mayor Parker commended the committee for an excellent job, and the Council accepted this first report as information, giving the committee a green light to proceed with further planning, including a Labor Day kick -off for the educational /awareness portion of the campaign. Burt Barrett, Jr. spoke of the Inlet Avenue right -of- way, saying that the neighboring property owner who had once planted palms there and removed them at the city's request, has now planted shrubbery, adding a "private drive" sign as well. He stated that his concern is the perception that this is not a public right -of -way since there are only two public accesses in the area. He cited cases at Hilton Head and Wilmington Island where the public used to have access and now no longer can get to the beach or the river. He said that he could not definitely state that the sign is on the man's private property, it might be, but the perception is that there is no public access at Inlet Avenue, and he believes this should be clarified. Mayor Parker promised to check on the sign, and the planting. Councilman O'Neill said that the question is really not technical, but a matter of what the public believes, adding that there is no question but that the area has been beautified. Fitz Simmons spoke to say that June 15th was the compliance date for the compliance forms mandated by the Ethics Act and that two members of Council did not file. He stated that this is a misdemeanor. He asked about the city's allowing Tybee Realty to pave city right -of -way at Second Avenue and First Street, saying that the parking lot is theirs to pave, but they've also paved city right -of -way. It was noted in response that people do usually pave driveways to a point connecting with a street, but that this particular paving job will be checked. Gary Conleay spoke about the effort to keep Tybee School open, saying that the start of school is only 3 weeks away, and that a media campaign has begun although the chances may be slim to none. He asked permission of Council to solicit funds in the manner of the Shriners, using only adult collectors, in a safe and orderly manner. These funds would be used to defray costs of the media campaign. The City Council endorsed this solicitation, provided it is coordinated with the Tybee Island Police Department. Mr. Conleay said that the other effort of the school committee is to protect the property, and the park, if efforts to reopen the school are not successful. Mrs. James Ray asked if the city is going to do anything about Estill Avenue, saying it has been two months since she gave over her ten foot easement to the city, and still the street has not been graded. Mayor Parker explained that the city is waiting for Mr. Hernandez to indicate readiness to remove poles that are in the right -of -way, at which time a line will be run by the surveyor, and then it will be possible to grade the street. Mrs. Ray also said that the city workers aren't being paid to work on Saturday and Sunday now, and how can they Tybee Island, Georgia August 11, 1988 Page Three I undertake additional work for the Beach Litter Committee when the city can't pay them overtime for their regular work? Mr. Pope spoke against the proposed noise ordinance, and cited an incident on July 3rd in which the police closed down a band at 11:20 p.m. due to excessive noise, without a warning. He made a complaint specifically about Officer Black, quoting an alleged statement of the officer. The meeting was opened for business legally presented. Minutes of the July meeting were approved as written. Bills for the month of July were approved as follows: Police $14,019.27 Gen. Govt. $ 7,466.31 Public Works $12,607.00 Sanitation $15,337.00 Water /Sewer $13,620.15 Fire /1st Res. $ 1,198.96 Recreation $ 1,594.99 A letter of agreement between the city and the Georgia Dept. of Natural Resources was read into this record. A copy is attached to, and becomes a part of, these minutes. It was noted that many letters in response to the city's resolution about Tybee School have been received, and a letter from NCR Corporation concerning the use of the park pavilion was read into the record. Councilman O'Neill said that the School Board has always maintained a closed door policy that is an affront to every citizen of the county. He said that his years in the television industry made him aware that this group has a history of shutting out the media. Jean Davis made, and John O'Neill seconded, a motion that the Beach Litter Committee recommendations be accepted and they be given the go -ahead to plan and implement a media campaign for Labor Day weekend. The motion passed unanimously. David deBorde, a member of the committee, spoke to say he feels very strongly that the committee be allowed to meet with the part -time officers to be used for beach patrols and have some input even though they will be working under the direction of TIPD. He also said that the fines generated by the beach patrol need to go toward litter control. Councilman Jackson stated that two transfers of alcohol beverage licenses have been requested, one for the Shrimp Net in Ithe name of Robin Hughes and one from Chris Simon for Pier 15. He stated that the police reports are okay, and moved that the transfers be granted. Councilman O'Neill seconded the motion. After clairification of a point made by Councilman Youmans concerning whether the licenses are paid up to date, the vote was taken and was unanimously in favor. The transfers were therefore Tybee Island, Georgia August 11, 1988 Page Four 1 approved. 1 1 The skateboard ordinance, Code Section 10 -1 -3, was read by Councilman Walsh. He then moved its adoption, and the motion was seconded by Councilwoman Davis. During discussion Mr. Walsh explained that a committee consisting of himself, the Chief of Police, a businessperson who sells skateboards, and a young person who skates, had met together and were recommending the ordinance. The vote was 5 - 0 in favor. A second reading, held later in the meeting, on motion made by Councilman Walsh and seconded by Councilman Jackson, was also unanimous and the ordinance was adopted, effective at once. Councilwoman Davis announced that the time has come to use the remainder of the Revenue Sharing Budget, suggesting that a public hearing be held in September, if proper advertising can be done in time for the regular meeting. She explained that there are a several hundred dollars left in various categories, not really enough to be effectively spent, and suggested that these funds be reallocated to a special project of some kind. The total remaining is $6,792.58. A proposed noise ordinance, heard on 1st Reading last month, was next discussed. Police Commissioner Jackson said that the Council can't seem to agree on what the specifics of the ordinance should be, and opened the question for discussion. Councilman Walsh said the ordinance as proposed seems to be a commonsense one, and that the city would be better off with a simple ordinance. Sound meters were discussed, too, with an ordinance calling for the level of sound to be read by this method. Both the chief and Councilman O'Neill believed there used to be a midnight- provision. Chief McCutchen offered to investigate the charges made by Mr. Pope. Councilman Youmans said he's lived on Lewis Avenue for 17 years and this is the first summer he hasn't been able to sleep because of noise. It was noted that if plans for a convention hotel and the city pier and pavilion materialize, there should be a clear understanding as to what type of noise law would be enforced. However, there was no concensus reached, and the second reading of the ordinance was dropped. Mr. Mahoney explained the changes in the flood ordinance which were mandated by the federal government, saying that the new provisions of the model ordinance have been incorporated into Tybee's existing ordinance since it was tailored for our island at great expense about five years ago. The ordinance was read by section and title and Councilman Jackson moved its adoption. Councilwoman Davis seconded and the vote was unanimous in favor. Having been accepted on First Reading, a Second Reading followed immediately, with the same results. The new ordinance is attached to, and becomes a part of, these minutes, and will be forwarded to the appropriate state and federal agencies at once. Tybee Island, Georgia August 11, 1988 Page Five A contract with NCR for updated computer equipment and software, with lease, was discussed and Councilwoman Davis stated that the proposal has been recommended by the Finance /General Government Committee and is within the budgeted amount for this fiscal year. The recommendation of the committee was accepted unanimously, and the Mayor is hereby empowered to execute the lease /purchase agreement /contract. Building Code updates, seven separate ordinances, were next read and Councilman Jackson moved for adoption, with Councilwoman Davis seconding. The vote was unanimously in favor, and a Second Reading, with identical results, followed immediately. Code Sections 8- 2 -3(a), 8- 2- 11(a), 8 -2 -18, 4 -2 -21, 8 -2 -13, 8 -2 -14, 8 -2 -16, and 8 -2 -17 as amended are attached to, and become a part of, these minutes. Councilman O'Neill stated that a motion he made two months ago regarding Code Section 8 -4 -72, Public Hearings, and which was accepted by unanimous vote of City Council was later found to be in violation of the Code. He then stated that, rather than try to correct the motion, he'd prefer to withdraw it, if City Council agrees. There were no objections, so the motion is considered null and void, and no public hearing for a text amendment to 8 -4 -72 will be advertised. IMayor Parker announced that he is issuing a Proclamation for the Second Annual Coastal Empire Gymnastic Meet to be held on Tybee the last weekend in August, and urged the City Council and the local Chamber of Commerce to make the visitors welcome. 1 The meeting was adjourned.

DEVELOPMENT OF COASTAL HIGH HAZARD AREAS (V ZONE AREAS). Within those areas designated as coastal high hazard areas by the flood maps, no land below the level of the one hundred - year floor shall be developed or improved unless the new improvement shall: (a) Be located landward of mean high tide, and (b) Be elevated and secured to anchored pilings or columns so that the lowest floor (excluding pilings or columns) Is elevated to or above the applicable one hundred -year flood elevation and certified by a Georgia- licensed engineer or architect that the structure is secured to anchored pilings or columns. (c) Have the space below the lowest horizontal support member for the lowest floor free of obstructions that the impact of abnormally high tides or wind - driven water is minimized. (d) Provide that all new construction and substantial improvements, within zones V1 -30, VE and V on the community's FIRM, have the space below the lowest floor either free of obstruction or constructed with non - supporting breakaway walls, open wood lattice work, or insect screening intended to collapse under wind and water loads without causing collapse, displacement, or other structural damage to the elevated portion of the building or supporting foundation system. For the purposes of this section, a breakaway wall shall have a design safe loading resistance of not less than 10 nor more than 20 pounds per square foot. Use of breakaway walls which exceed a design safe loading resistance of 20 pounds per square foot (either by design or when so required by local. or State codes) may be permitted only if a registered professional engineer or architect certifies that the designs proposed meet the following conditions: -1- breakaway wall collapse shall result from a water load less than that which would occur during the base flood; and, -11- the elevated portion of the building and supporting foundation system shall not be subject to collapse, displacement, or other structural damage due to the effects of wind and water loads acting simultaneously on all building components (structural and non- structural). Maximum wind and water loading values to be used in this determination shall each have a one percent chance of being equalled or exceeded in any given year (100 year mean recurrence interval.) -iii- Such enclosed space shall be used solely for vehicle parking, building access or storage. 1 1 1 (e) There shall be no fill used as structural support. Non - compacted fill may be used around the perimeter of a building for landscaping /aesthetic purposes provided the fill will wash out from storm surge, (thereby rendering the building free of obstruction) prior to generating excessive loading forces ramping effects, or wave deflection. The city inspection department shall approve design plans for landscaping /aesthetic fill only after the applicant has provided an analysis by an engineer, architect and /or soil scientist, which demonstrates that thefollowing factors have been fully considered: i- Particle composition of fill material does not tendency for excessive natural compaction; ii- Volume and distribution of fill will not cause wave deflection to adjacent properties; and iii- Slope of fill will not cause wave run -up or ramping. (f) There shall be no alteration of sand dunes which will increase potential flood damage. Section 8 -5 -12. REQUIREMENTS FOR RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION IN THE A ZONE. (a) Within those areas of the municipality designated as areas of special flood hazard on the flood map (zone A), substantial improvement of existing structures and all new construction of residential structures including prefabricated and mobile homes shall have the lowest floor of such structure, including basements, elevated to or above the applicable level of the one hundred -year flood. Such construction may have unfinished garage or storage areas below the base flood elevation, but not for eventual use as living quarters. Areas used for parking or storage may have electrical outlets provided that each is protected by a ground fault protector. (b) Floodways. Located within areas of special flood hazard are areas designated as floodways. Since the floodway is an extremely hazardous area due to the velocity of flood waters which carry debris, potential projectiles and has erosion potential, the following provisions shall apply: -1- Prohibit encroachments, including fill, new construction, substantial improvements and other developments unless certification (with supporting technical data) by a registered professional engineer is provided demonstrating that encroachments shall not result in any increase in flood levels during occurrence of the base flood discharge; -ii- All new construction and substantial improvements shall comply with all applicable flood hazard reduction pro- visions of Section 8 -5 -11. -iii- Prohibit the placement of manufactured homes (mobile homes) except in an existing manufactured homes park or subdivision. A replacement manufactured home may be 1 placed on a lot in an existing manufactured home park subdivision provided the elevation requirements and anchoring standards of Section 8 -5 -14 are met. g Section 8 -5 -13.
