            On behalf of Staff, Chief Carl Alexander recommended approval of this application.

            Unanimously adopted. (Commissioner Boyne was not present for this vote)

                                                ________________

Report from Beach Management Committee.

            On behalf of the Beach Management Committee, Charlie Crumbliss presented an activities report which included the following requests:

            1.         Authorization and funding for Beach Management Committee to develop                                   and propose RFP’s for alternatives to groin;

 

            2.         Obtain beach a consultant to advise the Beach Management Committee.

 

 

            3.         Obtain a consultant to evaluate the beach transect monitoring data;

 

            4.         Discuss with USACE the possibility of reducing the amount of unsuitable

                        material to be deposited on the beach.

 

            5.         Request the County Staff keep the Beach Management Committee advised

                        about changes to the project.

 

            6.         Request the USACE make a representative available for Beach

                        Management Committee meetings.

 

            Chairman Smith said it had been his intent in informing the Beach Management Committee to place the two opposing factions of the Beach Nourishment Project together to work toward the common goal of saving the County money, and they had apparently been unable to work together towards this end.  Chairman Smith said he had lost confidence in this Committee.

            A motion was made by Chairman Smith and seconded by Commissioner Hardman that a final report be received from the Beach Management Committee at the Board of Commissioners Regular Meeting to be held on December 19, 1991 at 6:30 P.M.

            Since 10 of the 22 Beach Management Committee members had dropped out,

Commissioner Dismer suggested that the Commission find 10 new people who would be willing to cooperate in an effort to determine whether the County should pursue the current Beach Nourishment Project in excess of $5,000,000 when it might be accomplished in a different fashion for $1,000,000.  He said he felt disbanding the Committee at this time would be premature.

            Commissioner Moore asked the Beach Management Committee to prioritize alternatives to a groin and send recommendations to the Commission so this information could be presented to Staff for further research.

            Commissioner Boyne commended the Beach Management Committee for their work and for looking at alternatives to putting sand on the beaches.

            Chairman Smith’s motion was then adopted by majority vote with one dissent by Commissioner Dismer.

Bid on Wrecker Service for Heavy Vehicles.

            Police Chief Carl Alexander related that the Commission awarded bid to B&R Towing at the last Regular Meeting for towing heavy County vehicles, however, since that time this bid had been found to be unacceptable because the bidder did not have a suitable wrecker to serve the County’s needs.  He noted the second low bidder had a felony record, and recommended acceptance of the third low bidder for this service, as follows:

                                                A-1 Truck

 

            Mainland                                              $100.00
