President Rozema introduced the Honorable Jim Scott, County Commissioner (former State Senator) of Fort Lauderdale.
Senator Scott - spoke about his many years in the legislature. He will work out something regarding the legislative mandate relative to Automatic Fire Systems being required in all condominiums. We had no “input” into this legislative decision and we consider it “not feasible” in any respect. There will be a meeting at the Community Center on July 10th about this mandate.

He noted that consideration is being given to the growth of the cities north of here. “There are too many large buildings being planned. We should not let this happen, as the question of traffic, water, sewage, etc., would be in jeopardy here on the barrier island. We are trying to keep taxes down in this precarious economy. My staff and I will be traveling to our District to be sure and be kept abreast of your problems.” He is still studying the airport expansion question. Congress has a “Fairness Plan” about re-districting. “There has to be a balance between environment and economic development.” He’ll check on A1A being a Scenic Highway.
