The Workshop Meeting of Supervisors of The Central Charlotte County Drainage District was held on Thursday, December 10, 2020. The meeting initially convened at the Charlotte County Public Works Building, 7000 Florida Street, Punta Gorda, Florida 33950; however, as a result of safety measures at the Public Works Building, the meeting reconvened outside.
The attorney for the Association, Edward L. Wotitzky, called the Meeting to at 2:05 o’clock p.m. Supervisors who were present were: David Anthony, and Carol M. Nevling. Also present at the meeting was Vincent Boccio, a landowner, Edward L. Wotitzky, Esq., attorney for the District, and Judy Uhland, Secretary/Treasurer (via telephone).
Due and proper Notice of the Meeting was established. Attached to these Minutes is the Publisher’s Affidavit of Publication of the Notice of the Meeting, verifying the Notice was published on November 20, 2020 and November 27, 2020.
The first order of business was to consider filling the position previously held by Mr. Robert “Bucky” McQueen. Mr. McQueen had tendered his resignation as a Supervisor, which was, with regret, accepted. After discussion and on motion duly made, seconded, and unanimously carried, Mr. Vincent Boccio, a landowner in the District was appointed to fill the vacancy until the next Annual Meeting.
The Supervisors then elected officers to serve for terms commencing on the date of the Meeting. On motion duly made, seconded and unanimously carried, the following individuals were elected to the noted offices:
President: David Anthony
Vice President: Carol M. Nevling
Secretary: Judy Uhland
The attorney for the District offered an explanation of the work of the District and advised Mr. Boccio he would be providing to him an oath as required pursuant to applicable provisions of Chapter 298 of the Florida Statutes.
Ms. Uhland then reported on the financial condition of the District. Attached to these Minutes are the October bank statements and reconciliation for period ending November 30, 2020. Ms. Uhland further noted assessment funds are being remitted to the District and the current bank account balance is slightly over $38,000.00.
The Supervisors then reviewed various maintenance issues. Ms. Nevling and Ms. Uhland reported on the recent issue concerning spraying the ditch along Pelican Drive. Apparently, the Airport Authority had purchased some additional property along Pelican Drive and installed a fence cutting off access to the ditch. That matter has been resolved with the Airport Authority.
Other than the semi-annual spraying of ditches by Lake Doctors, no additional maintenance projects were authorized by the Supervisors.
There being no further business before the Supervisors, the meeting was, on motion duly made, seconded and unanimously carried, adjourned.
Respectfully submitted, Judy Uhland, Secretary
Approved: David Anthony, President
