2. PRESENTATIONS AND DISCUSSIONS

2.A. PROCEDURES OF CEREMONIAL GUIDELINES Staff Contact: Linda Bourgeois, City Clerk

Tagged Passions:procedure

Mayor West presented and said the reason for the discussion tonight was because there were several requests for proclamations and letters that come

in for the Mayor, the City Clerk, and others here on the dais. He continued and said while he was the Mayor, the decision for proclamations, letters, and keys to the city should have collective approval. He asked the balance of the City Commission if they would prefer to keep the same process in place, or have each request come before the City Commission for approval prior to the presentation of the request.
Tagged Passions:recognition and boards and commissions

He asked the City Clerk to talk about the volume of requests. She went on to provide the City Commission a list of proclamations previously presented

to the City Commission, minus any personal or anniversary proclamations, and said if this list was pre-approved, it would make implementing the policy easier.
Tagged Passions:recognition, boards and commissions, and policy

Commissioner Tyler said he did not have any problem trusting the Mayor's discretion. He said if they Mayor felt there was one that needed further

review, he could bring it for consensus. He also spoke about putting a protocol in place to deter late submission requests with a time frame. He concluded by saying he trusted the Mayor.

Mayor West spoke about the letters of greeting and requests for acknowledgements. He asked the City Clerk to name some of the types of requests

coming into the City and she did. He continued and said he agreed with Commissioner Tyler regarding a time frame because there were many request that come into the City on a Thursday for an event that weekend.

she could call the Mayor to see if he is available to sign. If not, then the requesting party would have to wait.

Vice Mayor Huffman agreed with Commissioner Tyler and said she trusts the judgment of the Mayor. She was also in favor of a time frame of two weeks

in advance, and also going to the City Clerk's office to fill out a form.

Commissioner Hall agreed.

City Clerk Bourgeois said if she was understanding correctly, the policy would be an internal policy and not a formal policy adopted by the City

Commission.
Tagged Passions:boards and commissions and policy

Mayor West said the proclamations already supported by the City Commission were pre- approved, and there would be a two week time frame for new ones.

Tagged Passions:recognition and boards and commissions

Vice Mayor Huffman said she thought the templates were a good idea.

City Clerk Bourgeois thanked the City Commission.

Tagged Passions:boards and commissions

Commissioner Tyler said the city had always been accommodating and will continue to be.

City Attorney Reilly clarified if the City Commission was establishing a policy relative to timing or not?

Tagged Passions:legal, boards and commissions, and policy

City Manager Feacher said we were not.

Tagged Passions:administrator and manager

City Attorney Reilly asked if there was ever a request turned down, and the reply was no.

Tagged Passions:legal

Mayor West said he would come in and sign the requested document, even on short notice if he was available. He went on to say he just wanted to make

sure this was what the rest of the City Commission wanted, and not just what he wanted. We all need to make the decisions as a whole.
Tagged Passions:boards and commissions

City Manager Feacher said the City Clerk provided the proclamations to him prior to being processed on the agenda. He said since there were several

reviewers, and if there was anything we felt was controversial we would have a discussion with the City Attorney or the Elected Officials.
Tagged Passions:recognition, legal, administrator, and manager

City Attorney Reilly said the point he was trying to make was if the content of the document was not favorable to the Organization, the City

Commission may have to address it differently. He provided an example of creating a proclamation for one religious organization and not everybody else, then somebody could claim they were not being treated fairly. He concluded by saying hopefully, everyone will put forth good requests.

RESULT: DISCUSSED

3. AGENDA REVIEW The following items on the February 6, 2020 City Commission meeting were discussed.

Tagged Passions:boards and commissions

Vice Mayor Huffman said the Haines City Little League and MS Haines City softball looked like they were one in the same organization. She asked if

they were the same and City Manager Feacher said they were two separate entities.
Tagged Passions:administrator and manager

Parks and Recreation Director Griffin said there was an error in the document.

Tagged Passions:parks and recreation

Vice Mayor Huffman said she had been very vocal in the past six months about what MS Softball had not been doing. She said the organizer had not been

returning calls or speaking with Commissioner Horace West.

Mayor West said Commissioner West would not be in attendance tonight. He was excused. He continued and shared there would be a meeting next Tuesday

in Davenport to discuss the direction of MS Haines City Softball.

Parks and Recreation Director Griffin said he had sent out the contract to both League Presidents for review.

Tagged Passions:contract, parks, and recreation

Vice Mayor Huffman asked what the replies were and Director Griffin spoke about the referees and team sponsorship's.

Mayor West asked if we had to expedite the contract or could we speak with them and bring it back in two weeks.

Tagged Passions:contract

Parks and Recreation Director Griffin said they were going to be starting practice, not next week, but the following week. Ultimately, if the

contract was not approved they could not start practice.
Tagged Passions:contract, parks, and recreation

Vice Mayor Huffman said according to the contract they were responsible for the umpires, and in the past they did not have them. There were three

games where they just picked someone. In addition, they were also responsible to get business sponsors and in fact they have lost sponsors. The shirts were generic and there were several important things here that they have not met. She said the City owed the responsibility to girls softball.
Tagged Passions:business and contract

Parks and Recreation Director Griffin said the issues were similar with the Haines City Little League. He said to ensure the leagues were operating

properly, if he had to take money from his budget to make sure there were umpires, he would do that. Many times they were volunteers.
Tagged Passions:budget, parks, volunteer, and recreation

Mayor West said if we were going to approve this contract tonight, it appears as Vice Mayor Huffman said tonight, if they don't abide by the contract

we can cancel the contract similar to that of what we did with football. He asked if that was an option.
