The Board met last week, via Zoom, to plan for the upcoming months in light of the current environment surrounding the virus and the Governor's executive order recently enacted. We want to ensure that we are all complying and staying safe.
“Safer At Home” Policy
As you know, Governor DeSantis announced an executive order implementing a “Safer At Home” policy for all Florida residents, effective April 3rd. This policy will remain in place until April 30th.
Meeting Schedule Changes
Both of the April meetings (21st and 28th) will be postponed. When there is more certainty, the guest speakers who had been scheduled for the March and April meetings will be rescheduled. In the meantime, the Army Corp and SLC have agreed to tentatively reschedule their meeting on May 5th, to be confirmed later this month. We are also researching options to hold meetings virtually, providing the opportunity to schedule meetings sooner and possibly into the summer. We’ll continue to advise of any scheduling changes.
PC Board Replacement and Annual Meeting
The Board confirmed Susan McIntyre to fulfill Tom Gilson's term on the Board.
There were no new candidate names submitted for the 4 open Board positions. Therefore, there will be no election and the 4 incumbents will remain on the Board.
During the meeting, the Board elected and unanimously approved the officers for the 2020/2021 PC Board as follows:
Charles Grande – President
Harvey Alligood – Vice President
Lou Stoddard – Secretary
Don Stacks – Treasurer
Laura Jones, Susan McIntyre, Len Amato - Directors
Beach & Dune Committee Update
The Committee continues to remain engaged with the County to clarify questions following the March 10th Informal BOCC meeting (see update 3/24/2020 on the website pcofhi.com). It remains unclear if the Commissioners eliminated the option to purchase entire parcels of land and kept open the option to purchase easements to gain public beach access points. We want to ensure that the PC continues to focus efforts to encourage the County to move the project forward. Updates will be provided as clarification is known and we can identify further actions needed.
We want to ensure that Association members continue to receive information. If there have been changes on your Board following your Annual Meeting, please send in the contact information changes so that the distribution lists can be updated. Send all changes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will continue to provide updates as more information is known, and while we are all “safer at home”. You may stay informed by visiting the website (pcofhi.com) and if you have any inquiries, they may be sent to email@example.com.
Please continue to follow the guidelines and stay safe.
