Mr. Jolivet’s April 10 letter was so full of misinformation it is hard to know where to begin to refute him, but here goes:
She is now openly advocating the removal of two commissioners in 2015, the next municipal election. She explained to readers of the Century Village East Reporter that she could not get her initiatives passed until after that election, when she supposes candidates favoring her views will be elected.
Here are excerpts from the minutes of the November 5, 1991 Deerfield Beach Commission meeting:
Mayor Robb read a prepared statement about the proposed resolution on this agenda concerning interruptions during Commission meetings.
… AMEND RULES OF PROCEDURE FOR COMMISSION MEETINGS
Mayor Robb said she objected to a proposed resolution to amend the rules of procedure for Commission meetings. She said she did not really object to the section about not interrupting but did object to requiring a motion to add any item individually to the agenda.
City Attorney Maurodis read a proposed resolution in written form by title only as follows:
PROVISION PROHIBITING ANY COMMISSIONER FROM INTERRUPTING ANOTHER COMMISSIONER WHILE SAID COMMISSIONER IS SPEAKING DURING A CITY
Which was introduced by Commissioner Tractenberg- Roll call showed:
Wording of the Resolution:
The order of business of each meeting shall be as contained in the agenda prepared under the direction of the City Manager. The agenda shall be a listing by topic of subjects to be considered by the Commission and shall be delivered to members of the Commission each Friday preceding the meeting to which it pertains.
ADOPTED THIS 31st DAY OF NOVEMBER, 1991
After all she heard, she continued to interrupt and take over the conversation all the way to the end of the meeting. Even after being reminded that her 1980-90s commission passed a resolution forbidding her to interrupt. She heard the same thing from the residents and from her fellow commissioners. How sad.
