Mrs. Gould indicated her opinion that Seafarer’s be canceled for 2005. She went on to state that there are only eight vendors registered, one of which is a food vendor, and another who will be canceling because of the location on the ocean. Mrs. Gould indicated that it was her opinion that the two events will not work together since the ocean-front lot will be overflowing with vehicles from the Hydrofest. Additionally, the police department will not be able to block off the lake front and the ocean-front at the same time. She added that there simply are not enough people in the area to support two events. She suggested that the Seafarer’s be canceled, but that the fireworks still be held on the lake. She formally requested permission from Commissioner Cabrera and Mayor Groon to give refunds to the vendors who have signed up for Seafarer’s. The Clerk interjected that the festival will have to be officially canceled by the Board of Commissioners, as well as authorizations for refunds. The Solicitor concurred, adding that the authorization will have to include approval to still hold the fireworks. The CFO interjected that the fireworks were approved in conjunction with Seafarer’s and if Seafarer’s is canceled the fireworks should be canceled also. Mrs. Gould and Mr. Groon both objected to that suggestion. The Clerk inquired if the fireworks would then become a Hydrofest event. Mr. Groon responded that it would be “a community event.” Mr. Cabrera inquired if any vendors had paid for Seafarer’s. Mrs. Gould responded in the affirmative. Mr. Cabrera then inquired of the CFO if the number is behind previous years. The CFO responded that he could not answer that question, and the Recreation Supervisor would have to review the records from previous years. Mr. Cabrera requested that the matter be tabled until the August 10, 2005 meeting in order that he might have time to review the matter. Mrs. Gould concurred. The Clerk indicated he would place the matter on the agenda of August 10, 2005 for further discussion.

A discussion was had with regard to a requested donation to the Wildwood Civic Club for the annual Baby Parade. Mr. Groon inquired if the Civic Club had submitted “a bill.” The CFO responded that he has only received a letter requesting a contribution. The Clerk inquired if any specific amount had been mentioned. Mrs. Gould and the CFO both responded “$500.” The CFO interjected that it was his understanding that the Tourism Development Commission was going to approve the contribution at their meeting of July 21st. Mrs. Gould responded that it was discussed and agreed upon, but no formal motion was made at that meeting. The CFO indicated that if the TDC was going to pay the $500, a formal motion would be required. Mrs. Gould indicated that she would obtain that at the August meeting of the TDC.

A discussion was then had with regard to the matter of parking at the Fishing Pier. The Solicitor suggested that the matter be removed from the “Old Business” portion of the agenda since the matter seemed to be moot considering the condition of the pier and the decline in membership at the fishing club. The Clerk inquired of the Chief of Police if it remains a problem. Mr. Groon interjected that he would like to be updated on the matter and discuss it with the Chief of Police in an attempt to reach a resolution.

There being no further discussion, and no comments from the public, Mr. Cabrera motioned, seconded by Mrs. Gould, that the meeting be adjourned.

Vote:          Gould-Cabrera-Groon-Yes

Dated:        August 24, 2005
