MINUTES FOR NAVARRE BEACH LEASEHOLDERS AND RESIDENTS

April 2017 Meeting

The April monthly meeting was called to order at 10 am by President, Gary Buroker.    Opened with Pledge of Allegiance and introduction of board members present.  Show of hands confirmed quorum of members.  Forty three persons in  attendance.

 

Minutes were approved as presented.  Treasurer’s report was presented and approved.   Please see copy of report elsewhere in this newsletter.

Secretary read fire statistics for month.  Total of 33 responses.  Twenty two of those were in district and 11 were mutual aid responses to support other districts.

 

Robert Coley gave report from recent meeting regarding the merging of three local departments.  At the initial meeting they decided to move forward with the feasibility study and follow up meeting was set for May 4 at the Midway station.  In response to question from the floor, Mr. Coley said he believes our portion of the feasibility study should be smaller than the others.  We are a smaller department with a smaller budget. Currently our department has adequate reserves and no debt.

 

Peter Birckhead, chair of the beach beautification liaison committee, gave an update that out membership is up by 15% thanks to efforts of welcome committee.  We have $3000 in the BBLC account.   He requested project ideas be forwarded to the committee.   Peter said that currently there is a hold on additional benches and palm trees.   The Santa Rosa County BOCC wants to have all irrigation in place before any other items are added.

 

Brad Newman , Vice President of business development for Dune Doctors, was guest speaker.   He gave an overview of the company’s planning, restoration and preservation of dunes entitled “Standing Between You and the Next Storm” along with a video presentation.   Dune Doctors works with regulatory agencies as they plan and construct dunes.  They can diagnose dune problems with sand and vegetation and recommend and remediate dune issues.  They are available for free dune check up for individual residences and association complexes.    Mr. Newman reminded all that out of state companies are not always well versed in Florida regulations.    Secondly, landscapers do not always know the science and best practices when working on or around dunes.    Mr. Newman answered questions from the floor and stayed after meeting was adjourned to talk with those interested.

 

President Buroker gave an update on recent talks regarding fee simple legislation.  Gary met with Congressman Gaetz office manager and confirmed that Gaetz’s  priority is to get fee simple legislation passed.  Gaetz invited 20 people from Navarre and Pensacola to meet with him to see his proposal and hear his explanation.   Three of our board and one other NBLRA member have been asked to attend.   Aides for Senator Nelson have also advised Gary that they are in favor of fee simple legislation.

 

Concerns were raised from the floor about what appeared to be an abandoned boat on beach at Juana’s and about the parking lot on Gulf Blvd being used as a food vendor parking lot.  MR. Birckhead will talk with county code enforcement regarding both issues.

 

Meeting adjourned at 11:11

by President Buroker.
