33. Citizen Comments


-- Glen Gibellina mentioned the 19-acre piece of property in his neighborhood that the county has owned for years and suggested that there are many properties which aren't being properly attended. He proposed the county either sell the 19 acres or make it available for a community garden or a park.


Commissioner DiSabatino asked if a motion needed to be made that would allow her to evaluate some of the abandoned properties in the county, so as to see if some budgetary relief could come from selling them or making them available for use.


The rest of the commissioners, except for Gallen, all but scolded DiSabatino, telling her it is not her place and to stay out of their districts. They said they would not support any motion that would attempt to catalog all of the abandon properties and buildings in the county. (Story to Follow)     


-- Citizen Joe Kane spoke to the commission and to the audience. When Chairman Bustle told Kane to address the board only (therefore quit turning to the public when talking) Kane, without hesitation, continued to address the crowd, saying, "I am talking to those who pay your salaries."  Kane then said that the building, and those in it, are gagged; not allowed to discuss anything of importance without the permission of attorneys; who Kane referred to as the GODS. Kane said, "What they are running here is a shell game." Kane got applause from the crowd when done. 


-- Sierra Club Representative Sandy Ripburger said that the rewrite of the Land Development Code (LDC) is very difficult to understand. Ripburger said the changes from the old codes to the new were too difficult to decipher, and that the commission needed to extend the comment period deadline at least a month (from Dec. 23 to Late January of 2014). DiSabatino agreed and Whitmore, Benac and Chappie said they couldn't make much sense from the changes either, with Benac adding,  "… and I am a planner." DiSabatino made a motion to extend the comment period for a month -- Approved, Unanimous
