February Minutes

BPCA MEETING – 2/01/11

             A meeting of the Broadview Park Civic Association was called to order by President David Nielsen on Tuesday, February 1, 2011, at Sunview Park.  Board members present were: David, Jan Washburn, Nancy Walton, Linda Flanders, and Sarah Chavez.    

           Following the opening BSO Chief Kevin Butler reported that December had been a tough month with nine burglaries.  BSO has made seven arrests including one burglary that was caught in progress.  He warned the ladies about leaving purses in sight in the car when they were pumping gas or dropping kids off at school.  The thieves are waiting to snatch the purses.  He said big screen TV’s are a favorite object for theft.  The thieves immediately take them to flea markets.  He advised members to put on some kind of an identifying number such as a phone or street address (not a social security number) so the TV can be returned when found.

           He said there had been a shooting on Fern Road.  In response to a question about DNA testing, he said it is very expensive, about $1000.  There have been a number of break-ins to cars at Sunview.

            Chris Dickey distributed the E-news which showed that the Eastside NIP is 75% complete, and the Westside 35%.  Members questioned why the Meadowbrook road is not in the plan since it is like a roller coaster.  It is not part of the plan because the school was already hooked into sewer lines in Davie.  Members were asked to give Chris their e-mail addresses so that he could do some research and respond to their questions.  The county water department will notify residents when the project is complete.  They will have one year for hookup.  He said although Giannetti was messy, they were fast.  The dust was bad over the weekend when the trucks were not watering the roads.

            Michelle Futrell from Waste Management reported on complaints.  She said we should sign up now to pick a clean-up day between March 1st and May 31st.  Brenda McCrone handed out a job description for a part-time job available with the department.  She invited us to attend a meeting on February 17th at 7:30 to learn about a program that needs assistance.    

            Dave reported on our meeting with the officials from Davie.  He explained that it would be to our advantage to be annexed.  Davie plans to file a bill with the 2012 legislature, which would result in the town’s annexing Broadview Park effective Sept. 15th, 2012.  When Dave asked for a show of hands, it appeared that the members unanimously favored the annexation.  

            Dave announced that Bill Long had volunteered to fill one of the vacancies on the board of directors.   The members voted to approve Bill as a director.

            There was no other business and the meeting adjourned.

                                                               Jan Washburn, Secretary
