A)    AWARD OF HURRICANE DEBRIS REMOVAL BID.

 

Mr. Benton provided information related to the FEMA required hurricane debris removal contract and the selection process followed with respect to the bid process.  Mr. Benton indicated that based on the selection committee’s evaluation, the firm of AshBritt Environmental has been recommended to receive the bid award and if should the need arise following a destructive storm, the Bergeron Emergency Services firm was recommended as a secondary service provider.  Councilman Davis moved to award the bid to AshBritt Environmental as the primary contractor and Bergeron Emergency Services as a secondary contractor.  Councilman Walters seconded the motion and the vote was unanimous in favor of the motion.  Following the vote, Councilman Walters asked about the make-up of the selection committee and Councilman Loffredo asked for a copy of the bid submittal information to be forwarded to him.

A)    REQUEST COUNCIL CONSIDERATION FOR FILLING THE VACANCY ON THE COUNTRY CLUB ADVISORY BOARD.

 

Councilman Walters indicated that he is aware that the Council does not always fill vacancies immediately upon an opening but would like the Council to consider appointing Michael Schultz who had applied last fall and was not appointed at that time.  Council Members expressed their opinions and concerns, one of which was setting a precedent and staring “pocket” appointments.  Following a brief discussion, Councilman Walters moved to appoint Michael Schultz to the Country Club Advisory Board.  The motion died for lack of a second.
