Some interesting facts:
- The ordinance passed on first reading 5-0 yet only Council Member Matson signed on as a co-sponsor.
- Not a single person came to the microphone to speak in opposition. Interesting as many have taken to Facebook to argue against it. Why? Was there a lack of notice that it was scheduled for first reading or do some simply like to troll Council Member Singer on Facebook and do not want to actually state on the record any opposition to this ordinance?
After the meetings held Monday, 5/20/2019, it appears that this Palmetto Bay Council reached their 25th substantive meeting - including regular and specially called meetings - held in the first 24 weeks of this Mayor and Village council sworn in on December 5, 2018.
The ordinance will now be scheduled for a second reading and will become law in Palmetto Bay if (when) passed at the second reading.
Good work Council Member David Singer!
