[1. Receive report on the pricing and award of sale of Nueces County, Texas, Limited Tax Refunding Bonds, Series 2019.]

TO MOVE ON THEN TO THE REGULAR AGENDA ITEMS. AND WE HAVE A REPORT ON THE PRICING AND AWARD OF SALE NUECES COUNTY LIMITED TAX REFUNDING BONDS SERIES 2019.

BOY DO I LOVE GOOD NEWS ON A MONDAY MORNING COME TELL US ALL ABOUT IT. GOOD MORNING. I ALREADY HAVE THE CHEAT SHEET SO I KNOW ABOUT IT. BUT GOOD MORNING JUDGE THE COMMISSION AND WHEN YOU BRAG BRAG LOUDLY SIR BOBBY VERY WELL FOR THE RECORD FROM ESTRADA AND HOSSA AGAIN THIS PAST WEEK WE WERE LOOKING AT PRICING LAST THURSDAY ARE A SELL OF TWO BONDS REFUNDING THE 40 MILLION DOLLAR TAX NOTES FROM THE ONES HE SOLD BACK IN OCTOBER AND THEN ALSO IF YOU ACTUALLY IF YOU GO TO PAGE TWO OF THE OUT OF OF WHAT THEY'RE GIVING YOU RIGHT NOW. SO YOU HAD A 40 MILLION DOLLAR TAX NOTE WE WERE THAT WE WERE REFUNDING AND THERE WAS ALSO A 2010 REFUNDING OF A BOND FROM 2010 WHICH HAD ABOUT EIGHT POINT EIGHT MILLION DOLLARS. IF YOU LOOK AT THE MIDDLE COLUMNS WHERE IT SAYS TAX RATE ANALYSIS OF FINANCE ELEVEN SEVEN 19 AT THAT TIME DURING NOVEMBER WE WERE PROJECTING ON THOSE MIDDLE TO THE MIDDLE THREE BOXES ABOVE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE MIDDLE ONE AND THE ONE TO THE RIGHT WE WERE LOOKING AT THREE POINT 0 8 PERCENT INTEREST AND ABOUT ONE POINT SEVENTY SEVEN INTEREST. ON THE OTHER END IF YOU TURN THE NEXT PAGE AND PAGE THREE TURN TO PAGE THERE WE GO. I DON'T MIND SEEING CORPORAL BUT THAT'S YES IF YOU GO TO PAGE THREE. WELL WE DID INDEED GET AND. AND I KNOW WE CALL THE JUDGE AND TINER AND DELL TO SEE IF WE CAN MOVE UP THE PRICING BECAUSE LAST WEEK THE MARKET WENT TOWARDS YOUR FAVOR AND SO WE WANTED TO MOVE IT UP BY A DAY.

AND THAT WAS A GOOD WAY A GOOD TIME FOR US TO STRIKE. SO WE DID GET ACTUALLY TWO POINT SEVEN EIGHT FOUR PERCENT AND ONE POINT FIVE PERCENT INTEREST AS OPPOSED TO THE ONES I SHOWED YOU BEFORE 3.0 EIGHT AND ONE POINT SEVEN. SO AND OF COURSE AS WE SAY IN IN PLAIN SOUTH TEXAS LANGUAGE THAT MEANS WE SAVED A LOT OF MONEY BOBBIE. YES MA'AM. CAN YOU PROVIDE AN ESTIMATE ON OR AND I THINK OR MAYBE DALE WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO GIVE THE COURT A FEEL FOR THE RANGE OF THE DOLLARS THAT WE SAVED WITH THOSE BASIS POINTS. WELL IF YOU IF YOU LOOK AT THE COLUMNS IF YOU GO TO THE BOTTOM COLUMN OF WHAT THE 40 MILLION WAS GOING TO THE AMOUNT OF PAYMENTS YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE ON PAGE 2 IS GONNA BE FIFTY SEVEN MILLION ROUGHLY. AND SINCE WE GOT TWO POINT SEVENTY FOUR PERCENT IT'S ACTUALLY GOING TO TURN OUT TO BE ABOUT FIFTY FIVE AND A HALF MILLION SAYS ABOUT ONE POINT SEVENTY FIVE MILLION LESS THAN

[00:10:03]

WE HAD ANTICIPATED SO THAT WAS A THAT WAS FAVORABLE TO YOU ON THE ON THE FURTHER RIGHT ONE THE REFUNDING ON THE ONE TO THE RIGHT THE REFUNDING OF THE POINT SEVENTEEN. WE WERE LOOKING AT ABOUT THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY NINE THOUSAND OF SAVINGS BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE THREE HUNDRED NINETY EIGHT THOUSAND OF SAVINGS SO THAT WAS THIRTY THOUSAND MORE SAVINGS THAN WE HAD ANTICIPATED. AND AGAIN THOSE ARE THE 40 MILLION THAT THOSE ROUGHLY ABOUT 30 PERCENTAGE BASIS POINTS BETTER THAN WE HAD ANTICIPATED AND ABOUT TWENTY SEVEN BASIS POINTS BETTER ON THE REFUND THE REFUNDING ONLY NOW HAS A SMALLER REFUND AND ONLY HAS ABOUT THREE YEARS LEFT TO GO. BUT AGAIN IF YOU LOOK AT THE DEBT SERVICE BETWEEN THE TWO YEARS ON THE LARGER ONE WHAT WE'RE ANTICIPATING WAS ABOUT ONE POINT FIVE SEVEN ONE MILLION. AND WHAT WE'RE GETTING RIGHT NOW IS A ONE POINT FORTY SEVEN ONE MILLION SO THAT'S ABOUT A HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS BETTER IN DEBT SERVICE PAYMENTS FOR YOU. AGAIN YOUR ANUS TAX RATE IS GOING TO REMAIN THE SAME AT FOUR POINT TWO. IT'S JUST YOUR ISSUE CONTRIBUTION WILL GO DOWN A BIT. SO IT GIVES GIVES YOU MORE FLEXIBILITY TO THE FUTURE. BUT WITH THAT AGAIN I WANT TO THANK THE COURT AND ALLOWING US TO MOVE FORWARD A LITTLE QUICKER BECAUSE WE DID GET A BETTER WAY TO GET BETTER RATES. YES. LEST WE THINK THEY FELL A BIT. SO GUESS WHAT I WAS WONDERING IF IF IF WE MADE THE RIGHT CALL. YES. YES WE DID. COMMISSIONERS. ANY QUESTIONS FOR BOBBY THIS MORNING. I KNOW WE JUST GAVE YOU THE ANALYSIS HERE. BUT I KNOW THAT YOU WERE AVAILABLE BY TELEPHONE. IF YOU HAVE ANY ANY DETAILED QUESTIONS BUT THE END RESULT IS IS INCREDIBLY POSITIVE AND FAVORABLE TO NUECES COUNTY AND I'M REALLY GRATEFUL THAT YOU KNOW I MEAN OBVIOUSLY WE SET FORTH A TIMELINE THAT WE THOUGHT WAS IN OUR BEST INTEREST BUT BECAUSE YOU'RE WATCHING THE MARKET CAREFULLY AND YOU SAW A TREND THAT WE COULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF.

YOU MADE THE RIGHT CALL AND WE WERE ABLE TO MAKE THE DECISION AND WE WE REALLY APPRECIATE THAT. WELL THANK YOU. IT A PLEASURE WORKING WITH YOU ON THIS. I THINK THIS COUNTY IS MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. THANK YOU BOBBIE. THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER NO ACTION COMMISSIONERS JUST RECEIVING THE REPORT. MOVING ON TO NUMBER

[2. Discuss and consider a course of action for the rehabilitation/restoration of the Nueces County Courthouse façade; including any possible implementation of safety measures.]

TWO. WE HAVE A VERY SERIOUS MATTER TO DISCUSS AND WE HAVE A VARIETY OF STAFF MEMBERS HERE WITH US TO BRING THIS FORWARD. AND THAT'S TO DISCUSS AND CONSIDER A COURSE OF ACTION FOR THE REHABILITATION AND RESTORATION THE NOISES COUNTY COURTHOUSE FACADE INCLUDING ANY POSSIBLE IMPLEMENTED IMPLEMENTATION OF SAFETY MEASURES. THE NEXT ITEM IS IN RELATIONSHIP TO THAT ITEM BUT WE'RE GOING TO TAKE IT ONE STEP AT A TIME. AND LET'S ASSUME THAT THAT WE KNOW NOTHING. OTHER WORDS TAKE US BACK MAYBE WHAT SEVEN EIGHT DAYS. THE INCIDENT OCCURRED. WELL. GOOD MORNING ONCE AGAIN JUDGE COMMISSIONERS MA'AM. ABOUT A WEEK AGO SATURDAY WE HAD SOME FACADE FALL OFF THE TOWER PORTION OF THE NOISIEST COUNTY COURTHOUSE AND LAND ON TOP OF THAT ATRIUM WHICH DID DO SOME DAMAGE. ALSO WITH SOME OF THAT A FACADE FALLING OFF IT ALSO DAMAGED THE ROOF UP THERE AS WELL. SO WE WERE TASKED WITH FIRST. HOW ARE WE GOING TO PROTECT OUR PROPERTY TO HOW WE WERE GOING TO KEEP THE SAFETY SAFE. AND THREE HOW ARE WE GOING TO FIX THAT ISSUE UP THERE. SO MYSELF WARNED THE PUBLIC ENGINEER RUDY FROM CASTRO THE FIRE MARSHAL'S OFFICE LAST FRIDAY WE DID A TOUR OUTSIDE THE COURTHOUSE TO SEE WHAT THE LESS AMOUNT OF IMPACT ON THE COUNTY AND THAT'S IN AND OUT OF THE COURTHOUSE. WHAT WAS THE BEST AVENUES WE COULD TAKE TO PROTECT THE PROTECT THE CITIZENS AND OUR EMPLOYEES. SO ON THE DIAGRAM BEFORE YOU I'M PRETTY SURE THAT MOST OF US HAD UP THERE RIGHT NOW. CAN EVERYBODY SEE IT.

YES. THANK YOU. YES. YES. YOU'LL NOTICE ORIENTATE YOURSELF ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE.

SO RIGHT NOW WE'D BE SITTING ON THE LAPPIN SIDE. SO JUST FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WHERE WE'RE SITTING RIGHT NOW. AS YOU'LL SEE ON THE LEOPARD SIDE ON THE MUSTIN STREET SIDE RIGHT THERE THE RED BARRICADE ON THE LEFT SIDE AS THE BARRICADE ALLOWING THAT WILL NOT ALLOW TRAFFIC IN AND TWO OUT OF THE COURTHOUSE THE AREA IT'S IN TURQUOISE BLUE THERE. THAT AREA THERE IS TO BE FENCED OFF. AND THE REASON FOR THAT IS THAT EXIT ON THE SECOND FLOOR IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE CLOSED TO ENSURE THE PUBLIC DOESN'T GET HIT BY ANY FALLEN DEBRIS DURING THIS PHASE. PHASE 1 ANY QUESTIONS THUS FAR.

[00:15:02]

VERY WELL. I JUST WANT TO ALLOW COMMISSIONERS TO TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY'VE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THE ATRIUM AND THE DAMAGE THAT WAS DONE TO THE TO THE GLASS. AND QUITE FRANKLY I MEAN THE STONE IS OF WHAT NATURE ACTUALLY I'VE BEEN WANTING. IS IT A.. IS IT A COURT SIDE IS IT A GRANITE WITH A T IF YOU DON'T MIND THE COURT RECOGNIZES DAVID RICHTER. JUDGE IT IS A TREVOR TEEN MA BUT IT IS A TRAVEL TEAM A SMALL TILE TRAVEL ROUTINE OF COURSE BUT IF YOU GET BIG CHUNKS OF SMALL TILES IT GETS IT GETS TO BE LARGE BUT IT'S IT'S A IT'S THIS PIECE OF STONE AND THEREFORE I GUESS I'M TRYING TO REITERATE HOW IMPORTANT IT IS IT'S VERY IT'S VERY IMPORTANT AND DEPENDING UPON HOW IT CAN HURT YOU. ABSOLUTELY. YES MA'AM. OKAY.

THAT'S WHAT WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE. YES MA'AM. AND THAT'S THE REASON WHY WE. THIS DIAGRAM HERE YOU'LL NOTICE THAT THE RED MARKS ON THE DIAGRAM ARE BARRICADES THAT WILL RESTRICT THE ACCESS TO PUBLIC AND WORKERS COMING INTO THE COURTHOUSE FOR SAFETY MEASURES. THE WELL I DON'T KNOW WHAT COLOR YOU WANT TO CALL THAT ONE OF THE PINK LOOK IN COLOR. THAT'S GOING TO BE A TARP OR CANVAS WITH SOME SCAFFOLDING TO ENSURE THAT WE CONTROL STILL HAVE ACCESS TO THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT OFFICE AND EMPLOYEES AND THAT IS ASSIGNED PARKING IN THAT AREA AS WELL. SO THAT IS THERE FOR SAFETY AS WELL. AND SO YOU'RE ASKING THE COURT AT THIS TIME TO APPROVE THESE SAFETY MEASURES AND ARE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS SAFETY MEASURES AND PERHAPS IT WOULD BE GOOD AT THIS TIME TO IDENTIFY THAT THIS WAS ALWAYS PART OF OUR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM IS TO WORK ON THE FACADE. WE JUST THOUGHT WE WOULD HAVE MORE TIME. YES MA'AM. THAT IS THAT IS EXACTLY THE CASE THAT WOULD BE MORE TIME HOWEVER DUE TO THE SERIOUSNESS OF THIS ISSUE. WE ARE FORMULATING A FIRE SAFETY PLAN. THE FIRE MARSHAL CAME THROUGH HERE AND WALKED THE ENTIRE THING AND APPROVED OUR PLAN. WE JUST NEED TO PUT IT IN WRITING NOW AND SUBMIT IT TO THE FIRE CHIEF FOR APPROVAL AND THAT WILL ALSO BE ASSOCIATED WITH ANY PERMITS OR ANYTHING OF THAT NATURE.

WATCH. PHASE TWO GOES IN PROGRESS. SO BEFORE I ASKED THE COURT TO DO ANYTHING I'D LIKE TO BRING ONE UP HERE TO HEAR THE OTHER OTHER PHASES OF THIS. BUT THAT CONCLUDES MINE. PHASE ONE IS THE SAFETY OF ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT. ONLY THAT WOULD YOU BE WORKING WITH ONE TO PROVIDE THE COURT A COST ESTIMATE. I'M JUST I'M ASSUMING ONE THAT THE FUNDING SOURCE WOULD BE THE 20 19 CEOS. THAT IS CORRECT. GEORGE THERE. THE FUNDS WILL BE FROM THE 20 19 CEOS. AND YOU OF COURSE ARE NOT READY AT THIS TIME BUT YOU WOULD LET US YOU'D GIVE US A COST ESTIMATE ON THIS. I MEAN WHATEVER IT IS WE WILL DO BECAUSE IT'S IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY BUT I'M SURE THERE'S PROBABLY A COST ESTIMATE YOU'LL BE BRINGING. YES MA'AM. WE'LL BE BRINGING A COST ESTIMATE FOR THE SAFETY MEASURES AND THEN ALSO THERE'S THERE'S THE PHASE 1 IN THE PHASE 2 IN PHASE THREE. PHASE 2 IS TO DO THE TEMPORARY REPAIRS OF THE STRUCTURE ITSELF AND THEN PHASE PHASE 3 WOULD BE TO DO THE PERMANENT REPAIR. I MEAN TO DO THE WHOLE FACADE ONE THING THAT WE HAD TO REMEMBER JUDGE IS THAT ONCE WE DO THE REPAIRS TO THIS BUILDING IS THAT IT ISN'T FAR WITHIN THE NEW NEWCO REQUIREMENTS. SO THE WINDSTORM REQUIREMENTS WOULD FALL INTO INTO THAT. SO WE WOULD ASK FOR MEETING THE NEW WINDSTORM REQUIREMENTS FOR THE FOR THE REPAIRS AND FOR THE FOR THE NEW. AND UPON VISUAL INSPECTION. CAN YOU SEE THAT THERE ARE OTHER PIECES THAT ARE THREATENING TO COME OFF. YES MA'AM. THERE'S OTHER PIECES UP THERE THAT THAT YOU SEE THAT ARE SHOWN SMALL OFF AND. AND THEY'RE PRETTY MUCH KIND OF. HANGING THERE. SO PLEASE JUST DO THIS SIR THERE ARE BIG PIECES. SO THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE NEED TO LOOK AT. PRETTY PRETTY PRETTY QUICK AND JUST FOR THE COURTS I SUPPOSE INFORMATION. WE ALSO HAVE MADE THE APPROPRIATE CLAIMS TO OUR INSURANCE COMPANY IS THAT CORRECT. TIMOTHY WE'VE MADE THE APPROPRIATE. YES. YES MA'AM WE HAVE. THERE'S SOME DISCUSSION GOING BACK AND FORTH RIGHT NOW IS CONCERNING. I DON'T WANT TO CORRECT THE PUBLIC BUT WE JUST GOT US ANSWER YOUR QUESTION. YES MA'AM. YES IT HAS. LET ME CAN I ASK A QUESTION. AND I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE REITERATE REITERATE THIS. TELL ME ON THESE THESE AREAS AND THIS PROBLEM OR FOR ONE OR MAYBE. BUT TELL ME ON THE. COULD BE RISK MANAGEMENT ON THESE AREAS THAT WE THINK THAT ARE OTHER AREAS. THAT'S NOT SOMETHING WE CAN WAIT FOR DAVID TO COME IN AND DO ALL THIS STUFF WE GOT TO GET UP THERE.

WHAT ARE WE DOING TO MITIGATE OUR DAMAGES SINCE OUR TRIAL LAWYERS IN THE ROOM SO NO OTHER WORDS. IS THIS AN EMERGENCIES AT ALL. I MEAN WHAT ARE WE DOING TO MITIGATE THE DAMAGES. BECAUSE I DON'T WANT THAT STUFF TO FALL BECAUSE IF WE KNOW IT'S THERE WE HAVE NOTICE. WE NEED TO GET UP THERE AND GET SOME EMERGENCY ACTIONS AND YOUR AND YOUR CREW. COMMISSIONER I MEAN WE BUT FIRST WE GOT TO DO KIND OF VISUAL. I MEAN WE'RE DOING THE VISUAL BUT WE DO CERTAINLY SUPPORT THE PLAN TOGETHER AND

[00:20:01]

THAT'S THE MAIN THING. WE'RE CURRENTLY COORDINATING WITH CASH FOR ROOFING AND WE'RE ALSO COORDINATING WITH HE'LL BE COORDINATING WITH SOME ENGINEERS THERE OF COURSE WE PROBABLY COULD BE COORDINATING WITH DAVID RICHTER ALSO TO KIND OF SYSTEMS AND WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU TO DO THE TEMPORARY AS WELL. WHAT I GUESS I'M SAYING IS THAT'S A LOT OF COORDINATION. LET'S GET SOMEBODY UP THERE AND TAKE CARE OF IT. YES SIR. AND THAT'S WHAT THAT'S WHAT THE MIKE TODAY. NO NO I'M I'M SERIOUS. THAT STUFF'S HANGING AROUND AND WE THINK THERE'S OTHER PARTICLES WE CAN'T WAIT FOR THAT TO FALL FOR OUR PLAN TO COME TOGETHER. I AGREE WITH YOU ABOUT. I THINK WHAT HE'S SAYING IS WHEN YOU DO TWO THINGS. OH NO I GOT DO IT. BUT ALSO YOU HAVE TO BE PREPARED TO DO IT BECAUSE SOMETHING HAPPENS YOU'RE GONNA SWIM IN THE BOTTOM. YOU KNOW I 100 PERCENT AGREE I DO. I THINK THAT PREVENTATIVE THING IS A LOT MORE IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW.

THERE'S GOTTA BE A PLAN. SO. SO HOW ABOUT EMOTION. BECAUSE I THINK WHAT MY EMOTION IS TO GO FIX WHATEVER WE NEED TO FIX THAT'S GOING TO FALL IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE AND THEN WHATEVER YOU'VE GOT TO DO ON THE PLAN THAT'S FINE I'M JUST REALLY WORRIED THAT THERE'S THAT WE DON'T GET UP THERE AND IF ANYTHING ELSE FALLS AND WE'RE ON NOTICE OF IT THEN WE'VE GOT TO I THINK A DIFFERENT SET OF LIABILITY AND WE'VE GOT TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE. SO PLEASE GET UP THERE. SO THIS IS ALL IT LOOKS LIKE ON THE WEST SIDE OF THIS COMPLEX. WELL IT'S PRETTY MUCH ON THE ON THE EAST SIDE. AND THEN THERE'S SOME STUFF COMING OFF THE WEST SIDE. SO IT'S STRONG. COMMISSIONER I'M SORRY COMMISSIONER THIS THROUGHOUT. BUT THE REASON WHY IT LOOKS THAT WAY BECAUSE WE'RE TRYING TO CUT DOWN THE MAJORITY THE TRAFFIC BUT IT IS A 360. SO IT IS THREE. THAT'S CORRECT. BUT WHATEVER WE NEED MY NOTION WOULD BE THAT WE WE FIX WHATEVER WE NEED TO FIX IMMEDIATELY TO MAKE SURE NOTHING ELSE FALLS. AND THEN TO DEVELOP WHATEVER THE PLAN IS FOR THE LONG TERM ASSETS THAT WOULD BE MY MOTION THAT WE WOULDN'T GET IT STARTED AND I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY I I HAVE COMPLETE CONFIDENCE IN YOUR KNOWLEDGE YOUR JOB. I THINK YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND I THINK YOU'LL DO IT. OK. SO IT SOUNDS LIKE WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND AND WE ALL KNOW THAT WE CALLED THE SPECIAL MEETING BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT IT IS A SERIOUS AND IN MY OPINION AN EMERGENCY SITUATION AND I THINK YOU'VE PRESENTED A SMART PLAN BUT YOU'VE HEARD THE WILL OF THE COURT SAFETY FIRST. WELL WE WERE WAIT NO MA'AM.

OK I NEED A VOTE. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING I. I OPPOSED SAME SIGN.

OK. ONE IN ORDER TO DO WHAT WE REALLY NEED TO DO WE NEED TO HAVE AN EXPERT TAKE US TO

[3. Discuss and consider selection of Richter Architects for services related the Courthouse.]

THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM THAT WILL HELP US GET ONE YES JUDGE COMMISSIONERS ON THE AGENDA. AND WE HAVE POLICE WORK IS RECOMMENDING THE SELECTION OF RICHTER ARCHITECTS TO ASSIST US WITH THE COURTHOUSE PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE THAT WE WERE LOOKING AT. SO MOVED A MOTION IN A SECOND. THE ONLY DISCUSSION I'LL ADD IS I'D LIKE FOR DAVID TO COME UP AND JUST REMIND US YOU HAVE SOME SPECIAL KNOWLEDGE AND IT'S GOOD BECAUSE WE'RE ON TELEVISION AND THERE'S PEOPLE LISTENING TO US. WHAT IS THAT SPECIAL KNOWLEDGE WITH THIS PARTICULAR COURTHOUSE OF THE. THE ORIGINAL COURTHOUSE WAS UNDER CONSTRUCTION WHEN I GRADUATED AND CAME BACK TO CORPUS CHRISTI AND I WENT TO WORK FOR THE LEAD ARCHITECT ON THE PROJECT AS A AS A JUNIOR ARCHITECT. AND SUBSEQUENT TO THAT AFTER I BECAME A PARTNER IN THE FIRM WE CONTINUED TO DO WORK AT THE COURTHOUSE FOR FOR MANY YEARS AND HAVE HAD DID NOT SO MUCH IN THE LAST 20 YEARS BUT IN THE EARLY YEARS OF THE COURTHOUSE LIKE 20. WE DID MANY PROJECTS INCLUDING THE WACO STREET JAIL AND QUITE A FEW INTERIOR PROJECTS. AND SO WE'RE INTIMATELY FAMILIAR WITH HAVE A HIGH DEGREE OF FAMILIARITY IN FACT I I OBSERVED A LOT OF THE ORIGINAL CONSTRUCTION OF THE ORIGINAL AND I'M AM FAMILIAR WITH HOW THE STONE TILES ARE ARE FABRICATED THAT ARE NOW PROBLEMATIC. AND AND I THINK THE COURSE THAT THE COURT IS TAKING IS WARRANTED BECAUSE YOU KNOW IT'S 45 YEARS.

AND I THINK WHAT YOU MAY BE SEEING IS A SYSTEMIC FAILURE IN THE SUBSTRATE OF THAT TILE IS VERY POSSIBLE. AND SO I THINK I THINK YOU'RE ON THE RIGHT TRACK. AND SO AND YOU TO HELP AND YOU'LL HAVE THE ABILITY TO HIRE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS AND OR ANY OTHER ENGINEERING SPECIALIST IN ORDER TO GET US WHAT WE'RE WHAT WE'RE NOW CALLING PHASE TWO AND PHASE THREE. YES MA'AM. AND I THINK AND I DO THINK PHASE 1 IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WHICH IS SAFETY. AND TO GET SOME NETTING UP OR SOMETHING TO PROTECT FROM FROM FALLING POTENTIALLY FALLING OBJECTS OBJECTS AND STONE I THINK I THINK THE LIKELIHOOD OF BEING ABLE TO IDENTIFY AND REMEDIATE ALL OF THE PIECES THAT MIGHT FALL IS IN SHORT ORDER IS POTENTIALLY DIFFICULT. I THINK THAT IT'S MAYBE NECESSARY TO JUST GET PROTECTION FIRST AND BECAUSE IT WILL BE THERE'S JUST TOO MANY PLACES THAT COULD BE AT RISK THEN I WOULD SAY AS A PARTY PHASE TO THE SHORT TERM REMEDIATION THEN YES NOT SO MUCH ENGINEERS. BUT THERE ARE FORENSIC EXPERTS ON ON WALL SYSTEMS THAT COULD DO SOME IN-PLACE TESTING TO SEE IF IT IS A SYSTEMIC FAILURE OF THE SUBSTRATE AND IF IT IS THEN WE THEN WE COULD STEP IN AND

[00:25:05]

HELP DEVELOP A COURSE OF ACTION AS TO HOW TO REMEDIATE ON A ON A BROAD SCALE. BUT I THINK THAT THERE WILL BE SOME SOME SPECIALIZED TESTING REQUIRED AFTER THE SAFETY IS PUT IN PLACE. THANK YOU DAVID. NOT TO EMBARRASS YOU BUT REALLY TO SHOWCASE AND HIGHLIGHT WHAT INCREDIBLE PROFESSIONALS WE HAVE LIVING IN OUR COMMUNITY. YOU AND YOUR WIFE ARE MEMBERS OF EVERY MAJOR ARCHITECTURAL ASSOCIATION THAT I'M AWARE OF IN THE COUNTRY AND HAVE BEEN RECOGNIZED BOTH NATIONALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY FOR YOUR WORK. AND IT JUST HAPPENS TO BE EXCITING AND SUCH A GREAT FEELING FOR US WHEN WE IN OUR HOUR OF NEED THAT NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE SPECIAL KNOWLEDGE WITH THIS BUILDING BUT THAT YOU ARE ONE OF THE COUNTRY'S FOREMOST ARCHITECTURAL FIRMS AND I'M GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SERVICE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND WORDS. WE ARE HAPPY TO TO HELP HEAR THIS. THIS BUILDING IS PHYSICALLY CLOSE TO US.

WE'RE ONLY A FEW BLOCKS AWAY IT'S CLOSE TO OUR HEARTS AS CITIZENS HERE AND ALSO BECAUSE OF OUR HISTORY HERE SO WE STAND READY TO ASSIST YOU. MR. MORRIS DUTCH DIRECTOR SO TYPICALLY I GUESS THIS TYPE OF TILE OR JUST MAYBE LAYING TILE IN GENERAL. I MEAN I GUESS OVER TIME IT REQUIRES MAINTENANCE UPKEEP MONITORING.

YEAH REALLY GOOD GUY. WOULD YOU SAY THAT. YES IT ABSOLUTELY DOES. WELL WITHOUT GETTING TOO MUCH IN THE WEEDS BUT I THINK I'M SURE YOU ALL ARE INTERESTED IN DETAIL ON THIS BECAUSE IT AFFECTS YOUR DECISION MAKING. BUT THIS THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL TYPE OF INSTALLATION OF TILE IT WAS INSTALLED SORT OF BACKWARDS YOU THINK OF TILE IS BEING APPLIED TO A SURFACE BUT THESE TILES WERE LAID ON TO THE INSIDE OF THE FORM WORK AND THEN CONCRETE WAS POURED AGAINST THE TILES SO THAT THE TILE WAS ACTUALLY THERE FIRST AND THE WALL CAME SECOND AND THEN THE WHOLE SYSTEM GOT PUT UP. AND THE SEQUENCE WAS THEY LAID TILE DOWN AGAINST A FORM AND THEN THEY PUT WHAT WHAT IS CALLED A DRY MIX WHICH IN ORDER TO KEEP THE THE LIQUID OF THE CONCRETE FROM SEEPING THROUGH AND DAMAGING THE TILE THEY LINED IT WITH LIKE AN INCH OF DRY MIX RELATIVELY DRY NOT PERFECTLY DRIED TO TO STICK THE TILE TO. AND THEN THEY POURED THE CONCRETE AGAINST THAT. SO IT'S THAT IT'S THAT INCH OR SO OF DRY MIX THAT'S AT RISK THAT CAN IF IT FAILS IT COULD JUST SORT OF SEPARATE. AND SO THE IDEA OF THAT THAT THAT MAKES IT PARTICULARLY DIFFICULT TO REMEDIATE BECAUSE YOU MAY HAVE TO REBUILD THAT SUBSTRATE AS WELL IT MAY HAVE TO TAKE IT ALL OFF. I MEAN THE FIRST THING TO IDENTIFY IS WHETHER OR NOT IT'S WHETHER OR NOT THERE'S A REASON FOR IT TO BE LOCALIZED OR IF IT'S JUST PROGRESSIVE AND IT'S JUST CONTINUING. AND SO IT'S IT'S GOING TO BE A LITTLE TRICKY IS WHAT I'M SAYING. YOU KNOW SO GETTING TO THE RIGHT ANSWER IS NOT IS NOT AUTOMATIC BECAUSE IT'S A VERY SPECIAL KIND OF CONDITION.

THANK YOU. WE DO HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND AND I'LL CALL THE QUESTION ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE ELECTION OF RICHTER ARCHITECTS OR SERVICES RELATED TO THE COURTHOUSE SIGNIFY BY SAYING I I OPPOSE SAME SIGN YOU HAVE A BIG JOB BUT WE KNOW YOU'RE UP TO THE TASK. THANK YOU COMMISSIONERS AT THIS TIME IN THE INTEREST

[5. Discuss and consider options for funding a drainage project, including permitting and environmental assessments related to the City of Corpus Christ and Nueces County Collaboration on North Beach and Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone #4.]

OF RESPECTING OUR OUR OUR FELLOW GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES THAT ARE HERE WITH US. I'M GOING TO SKIP NUMBER FOUR AND GO TO NUMBER FIVE AND WE'LL COME BACK TO NUMBER FOUR IS THERE A MEMBER OF WELDER LESSON HERE. AM I BEING RUDE HERE. OKAY GOOD. SO WE'LL GET TO WELDER LESSON IF THAT'S ALL RIGHT. ITEM AFTER WE DISCUSSED AND CONSIDER OPTIONS FOR FUNDING A DRAINAGE PROJECT INCLUDING PERMITTING AND ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENTS RELATED THE CITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI INVOICES COUNTIES COLLABORATION ON NORTH BEACH. AS IT AFFECTS THE TAX INVESTMENT I'M SORRY TAX INCREMENT REINVESTMENT ZONE NUMBER FOUR IN IOWA. I ALSO HAVE I HAVE SOME FOLKS HERE I KNOW THAT WANT TO SPEAK ON THIS ISSUE ALTHOUGH I DON'T SEE IT. WELL YES I DO SEE HIM IN THE AUDIENCE AND I'LL ALLOW ANYONE ELSE WHO WANTS TO SPEAK ON THIS AGENDA ITEM TO SIGN OUR CLIPBOARD. BUT LET ME LET ME TRY TO CREATE A LITTLE BIT OF A STRUCTURE AND FRAMEWORK AND THEN LET ME INVITE THE COMMISSIONERS TO MAKE COMMENT.

MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC TO MAKE COMMENT AND THEN I'LL PUT FORTH THE EMOTION FOR FOR CONSIDERATION FIRST LET ME LET ME BEGIN BY SAYING THAT AS YOU KNOW COMMISSIONERS AND AUDIENCE THE CITY AND THE COUNTY HAVE HELD A SERIES OF WORKSHOPS FIRST TO DISCUSS THE TAX INCREMENT REINVESTMENT ZONE ON NORTH BEACH AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY JUST JUST DISCUSS THE CANAL ITSELF AND THESE SERIES OF WORKSHOPS ARE REALLY AN OPPORTUNITY TO BRING US ALL TOGETHER IN BONK AND TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A REALLY FRANK AND HONEST

[00:30:04]

DISCUSSION AND SAY CERTAINLY PROVED TO BE THAT. BUT THERE'S ALSO BEEN TWO YEARS WORTH OF TASK FORCE MEETINGS AND OH MY GOODNESS ENDLESS MEETINGS WITH REGARDS TO SOME OF THE NUANCES THAT THIS PROJECT BRINGS AND AFFORDS. BUT AFTER OUR LAST WORKSHOP AT THE VERY END THERE WAS SOMETHING REALLY IMPORTANT THAT WAS SAID AND THAT REALLY GRABBED MY ATTENTION AND I'M ALWAYS LOOKING FOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO FIND A WAY THAT COLLABORATIVE GOVERNMENT CAN ASSIST COMMUNITIES. I REALLY I JUST IT'S IT'S PART OF MY CORE TO DO THAT. AND SO WHAT I HEARD THE CITY SAY WAS THAT THERE WAS A PIECE THAT WAS AN UNKNOWN AND THAT PIECE WAS THE ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT PIECE AND THE PERMITTING PIECE AND THERE WAS A BIG CONCERN AND MAYBE EVEN THE WORD FEAR MIGHT BE APPROPRIATE TO SAY IN WHO WAS GOING TO PAY FOR THESE ITEMS AND HOW ARE WE GOING TO ADDRESS THESE MAJOR ISSUES THAT ARE PART AND PARCEL OF OF A QUESTION THAT MIGHT GET CALLED AND IN FACT DOES APPEAR TO BE ON A CITY AGENDA.

AND WHEN I HEARD THAT IT REMINDED ME OF A PROJECT A LONG TIME AGO BUT THAT WE ARE ALL INTIMATELY FAMILIAR WITH COUNTY ENGAGED IN A COOPERATIVE EFFORT AND ABSOLUTELY HAVE A COPY OF THAT COOPERATIVE EFFORT. IT WAS CALLED THE PACRE CHANNEL FEASIBILITY STUDY BASED CIRCULATION AND WATER LEVEL IT WAS CONDUCTED BY JOHN MICHAEL AND NAISMITH ENGINEERING AND I WON'T I HAVE IT AVAILABLE FOR ANY COMMISSIONER BUT I JUST WANT TO READ ONE LINE BECAUSE IT'S IT'S REALLY WHY WE'RE HERE TODAY. BACK IN 1997 THIS WAS PROBABLY THE MOST SIGNIFICANT INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT OUR REGION HAD EVER UNDERTAKEN.

AND THIS WORK DESCRIBED IN THIS REPORT WAS AUTHORIZED ON FEBRUARY 12 1996 AND THERE IS A LINE HERE THAT I'M GOING TO READ AND IT SAYS THAT THESE REPORTS WERE PREPARED UNDER CONTRACT WITH NAISMITH ENGINEERING INC. AS PART OF A COOPERATIVE EFFORT INVOLVING SEVERAL STUDIES APPROVED BY NUECES COUNTY COMMISSIONERS COURT TEXAS AND THEN IT GOES FORTH TO DESCRIBE ALL THE DIFFERENT ENTITIES THAT WE WORKED WITH AND THEY ALL SOUND VERY FAMILIAR. TEXAS ANM UNIVERSITY THECONRAD BLUCHER INSTITUTE THE DIVISION OF COASTAL AND ESTUARINE PROCESSES OF THE BLUCHER INSTITUTE THE CITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI OF COURSE THE U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS GALVESTON DISTRICT NATIONAL G PHYSICAL DATA CENTER AND THE LIKE. THIS IS A REALLY THIS IS A HISTORY LESSON BASICALLY THAT WE ARE PROPER IN THE OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS BEFORE US AN OPTION FOR NUECES COUNTY ONCE AGAIN TO COME AND BE A PART OF A COOPERATIVE EFFORT WHERE WE CAN HELP. AND SO HOW CAN WE HELP. WELL NUECES COUNTY IS GENUINELY BLESSED WE'RE BLESSED BECAUSE WE'VE ASSEMBLED A TEAM NOT FOR THIS PROJECT PER SAY BUT IT AFFORDS US THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEND OUR TALENT AND OUR EXPERTISE AND OUR RESOURCES TO THIS PROJECT. BUT WE ASSEMBLED A DREAM TEAM BECAUSE WE KNEW OVER A YEAR AGO THAT WE WOULD RECEIVED MOST LIKELY THROUGH HUD CTG FUNDING AFTER HURRICANE HARVEY FOR A VARIETY OF AVENUES. BUT WE KNEW THAT FLOOD MITIGATION WOULD BE PART OF IT. WE ALSO KNEW BECAUSE WE WERE ACTIVE IN THE LEGISLATURE THAT BECAUSE OF PROPOSITION 8 WE WOULD MOST LIKELY HAVE ONE POINT SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS IN FUNDING THROUGH TEXAS WATER DEVELOPMENT BOARD LOAN GRANTS ALSO FOR FLOOD MITIGATION. WE ALSO KNOW BECAUSE OF COMMISSIONER VAUGHN'S WORK AT THE NORTH BEACH TASK FORCE AND HER INVOLVEMENT THERE THAT WE HAD A SERIOUS DRAINAGE PROBLEM THAT HAD A POSSIBLE SOLUTION AFTER URBAN ENGINEERING WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO INVESTIGATE THOSE SOLUTIONS AND A CANAL WAS VETTED AS ONE OF THREE POSSIBLE REMEDIES. IT'S BEEN INCUMBENT UPON THE CITY TO HAVE ALL THESE DISCUSSIONS BUT WHERE WE COME IN IS QUITE FRANKLY OUR GRAN'S DEPARTMENT HAS EXPERTISE IN IN FINDING THOSE AVENUES THE OPENING THOSE DOORS FOR EXACTLY THIS TYPE OF WORK BECAUSE THE CITY DOES NOT HAVE A GRANT DEPARTMENT GRANTS DEPARTMENT. AND WE DO WE HAVE OFTEN SERVED AS A CONDUIT FOR THE CITY. WHEN I JOINED THE COUNTY HERE ON JANUARY 1ST I THINK IT WAS JANUARY 2ND. THE GRANTS DEPARTMENT CAME TO ME AND ASKED FOR MY SIGNATURE FOR A ONE MILLION DOLLAR GRANT THAT WE'RE CURRENTLY STILL AWAITING A NOTICE OF FOR ACTUALLY A DRAINAGE STUDY. OUR PARTNERS WITH THE CITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI. SO PRECEDENT IS WITHOUT A DOUBT BEEN ESTABLISHED AND. AND SO BECAUSE

WE HAVE THIS GRAINS DEPARTMENT WE HAPPEN TO BE PERFECTLY SITUATED TO ASSIST. BUT REALLY WHAT MAKES US INCREDIBLY UNIQUE IS OUR COASTAL PARKS DEPARTMENT HAVING DEALT WITH RESTORE ACT GOMEZ THE U.S. FISH AND WILDLIFE TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE TCE. Q THE GENERAL LAND OFFICE AND OTHER REGULATORY BODIES FEMA FOR DECADES IN NOT ONLY CREATING OUR COASTAL MANAGEMENT PLAN BUT IN BEING SUCCESSFUL IN RECEIVING BOTH FEDERAL AND STATE DOLLARS USING ALL OUR RESOURCES FOR THOSE ORGANIZATIONS WE SIT IN A VERY UNIQUE PLACE TO BE ABLE TO HELP OUR FRIENDS AT THE CITY IN THIS PERMITTING ENVIRONMENT AND IN THIS ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT ENVIRONMENT. ANOTHER WORDS IN PLAIN ENGLISH WE DO THIS ALL THE TIME AND WE DO IT WELL. AND THE REASON WE DO IT WELL IS BECAUSE COASTAL PARKS HAS HAD A LOT OF EXPERIENCE AND IS LED BY SOMEONE WHO'S INTIMATELY FAMILIAR WITH THE PROCESSES AND HE'S HERE TODAY AS A RESOURCE COMMISSIONERS FOR THAT. LET ME SAY THAT I TALKED ABOUT MY DREAM TEAM BECAUSE OF THE LEGISLATORS BECAUSE OF THE LEGISLATURE'S SESSION THIS YEAR WE PUT TOGETHER A DREAM TEAM OF 36 SHIPPED IN BOOGIE OVER LONGER. AND JOEL ROMO ALL OF WHOM HAVE TERRIFIC TRACK RECORDS WITH THE GENERAL LAND OFFICE AND WITH THE WITH THE PARKS AND WILDLIFE BOARD AND WITH T.C.. Q ON THE FEDERAL SIDE WERE REPRESENTED BY TIM RICHARDSON JIM RICHARDSON ALSO REPRESENTS JEFFERSON COUNTY AND THEY'VE RECEIVED OVER 150 MILLION DOLLARS IN FEDERAL FUNDING TO DATE. AND TIM REPRESENTS US IN THE IN THE FEDERAL WORLD OF RESTORE AND GO MAKES UP FUNDING AGAIN.

MAYBE THIS WASN'T THE IDEA WE WEREN'T THINKING ABOUT NORTH BEACH BUT BOY ARE WE READY TO HELP THE CITY BECAUSE OF THIS TEAM THAT WE HAVE ASSEMBLED AND TO BE HONEST WITH YOU THERE'S ABOUT 10 OTHER RESOURCES THAT I DON'T HAVE TIME TO GO INTO BUT THOSE ARE OUR MAJOR BUILDING BLOCKS. SO WHAT I AM ADVOCATING COMMISSIONERS FOR TODAY IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP TO ASSIST OUR COMMUNITY. I WANT TO READ SOMETHING THAT RAY PERRYMAN WROTE. HE IS THE GO TO MAN FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN TEXAS. HE DOESN'T JUST ADVISE GOVERNORS HE'S ADVISED EVERY PRESIDENT BACK TO GERALD FORD. HE IS THE SINGULAR MOST LISTENED TO ECONOMIST IN THE COUNTRY. IN MY OPINION AND AS DEEMED BY HIS COLLEAGUES HE IS THE HEAD OF THE PERRYMAN GROUP AND HE SERVES AS DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR AT THE INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDIES AND BASICALLY WHAT HE SAYS IS A COMPANY SEEKING TO LOCATE OR EXPAND IS GOING TO BE OF NECESSITY INITIALLY CONCERNED WITH THE FUNDAMENTAL FACTORS THAT IMPACT ITS SUCCESS. SOME OF THESE ITEMS ARE BEYOND THE CONTROL OF LOCAL OR STATE ENTITIES SUCH AS PROXIMITY TO CUSTOMERS SUPPLIERS OR REQUIRED RAW MATERIALS. OTHERS INCLUDING PUBLIC AND EDUCATION WORKFORCE TRAINING INFRASTRUCTURE TAX POLICY REGULATORY MATTERS AND QUALITY OF PLACE CAN BE AFFECTED BY COMMUNITY DECISIONS. INCENTIVES ARE OFTEN A CRITICAL ELEMENT OF THAT FINAL DECISION. I'VE PROVIDED THIS THIS ARTICLE FOR YOU TO READ THAT WAS ISSUED ACTUALLY YESTERDAY SUNDAY DECEMBER 8TH. I DIDN'T CALL HIM ALTHOUGH I KNOW HIM VERY WELL AND TELL HIM TO WRITE THIS BUT HE COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT ANY BETTER INFRASTRUCTURE HAS A DIRECT LINK WITH THE ECONOMIC PROSPERITY OF A COMMUNITY. AND THE REASON I'M SO PASSIONATE ABOUT THIS IS BECAUSE WE WILL BE SORRY IF WE DO NOT ACT UPON OPPORTUNITIES IN OUR COMMUNITY. AND SO THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT WE CAN DO IS PROVIDE ASSISTANCE WHERE WE CAN. MONEY WILL BE NEEDED FOR PERMITS AND FROM ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT BECAUSE OF CEOS THAT WERE GIVEN TO THIS COUNTY INTO THIS COUNTY JUDGE'S OFFICE IN 2016. I BELIEVE THE AMOUNT OF 250000 DOLLARS IS APPROPRIATE TO BE ALLOCATED TOWARDS PERMITTING AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT. I'M GOING TO CALL SCOTT CROSS BECAUSE I'M GOING TO ASK HIM TO EXPLAIN WHERE THOSE NUMBERS CAME FROM AND WHY WE THINK THOSE ARE GOOD NUMBERS TO ALLOCATE. JUDGE JUST FOR SAKE OF DISCUSSION. MAKE THE MOTION TO DO THAT. OBVIOUSLY CONTINGENT UPON THE CITY MOVING FORWARD IN THE PROPER MANNER OR WE'D ABSOLUTELY WITHOUT THEIR COMMITMENT. BUT I

[00:40:01]

WOULD MAKE THAT MOTION ABSOLUTELY MOTION. AND SECOND IS HEARD SCOTT WHY DON'T YOU COME ON UP AND JUST TELL ME. I I POSED SOME QUESTIONS TO YOU THAT THE OTHER COMMISSIONERS HAVE NOT HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR. AND WHY DON'T YOU TELL TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT YOU KNOW PERMITTING PROCESS IS CAN CAN RANGE I'M NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THAT YOU'RE GOING TO KNOW THE EXACT DOLLAR AMOUNT BUT IF YOU'VE DEALT WITH SECTION 10 PERMITS BEFORE HAVEN'T YOU FROM THE CORPS OF ENGINEERS. OK SECTION.

GOOD MORNING. GOOD MORNING. SECTION CAN SECTION 4 FOR CANADA. THE PERMITTING REALM THAT I WORK IN WITH THE CORPS OF ENGINEERS BUT THAT ALSO BRINGS IN THE OTHER REGULATORY AGENCIES TCE CUTE YELLOW U.S. FISH AND WILDLIFE EPA DISTRICT 6 OUT OF DALLAS FORT WORTH. THERE'S ALSO SECTION 7 CONSULTATION WHICH FALLS UNDER U.S. FISH AND WILDLIFE UNDER ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT. THESE THIS PERMITTING PROCESS IT CAN BE KIND OF FATIGUING BUT THE PROCESS IS WHAT THE PROCESS IS. I MEAN IT IT IT TAKES SOME TIME DEPENDING ON THE DETAILS OF YOUR PROJECT AND THE KIND OF IMPACTS YOU'RE GONNA HAVE. AND THEN YOU'VE GOT TO NEGOTIATE THE MITIGATION RATE WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO. YOU KNOW THERE'S THERE'S A LOT OF BACK AND FORTH THAT GOES THROUGH THIS PERMIT PROCESS WITH COMMENTS FROM REGULATORY AGENCIES AND YOU KNOW IT'S REALLY I MEAN IT'S LIKE YOU'RE BARTERING BACK AND FORTH TO FIGURE OUT OK WHAT CAN WE LIVE WITH BUT WHAT CAN'T WE LIVE WITH. AND SO. BUT IT'S IT'S THE PROCESS IS ALREADY THERE. I'VE TALKED TO THE JUDGE SHE HAD ASKED ME ABOUT SOME OF THIS OVER THE PAST WEEK. WE CAN HAVE TWO WEEKS. I TOLD HER I SAID YOU KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT AREN'T FAMILIAR WITH GOING THROUGH A PRETTY YOU KNOW DETAILED ENVIRONMENTAL PERMITTING PROCESS WOULD BE KIND OF HESITANT THEY WOULD BE SCARED THEY WOULDN'T KNOW ALL THE INS AND OUTS. BUT IT'S IT'S IT'S OUT THERE. YOU JUST FOLLOW IT AND IT JUST TAKES TIME. I TOLD THE JUDGE I THOUGHT FOR PROBABLY AROUND 150 TO ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS YOU COULD DO YOUR PERMITTING AND THEN FIFTY FOUR TO SIXTY THOUSAND YOU COULD DO YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT PHASE 1 AND JUST BECAUSE YOU DO PHASE ONE DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO GO INTO PHASE TWO. IT'S BID BE 50/50 WHETHER YOU WOULD GO INTO PHASE TWO ON THIS KIND OF A PROJECT. BUT IT'S I MEAN THERE SHE'S RIGHT THERE'S MONEY OUT THERE YOU KNOW TO TRY TO GET US REIMBURSED I MEAN JUST LIKE THE MEETING WE WENT OVER ROCKPORT AS LOOKING AT THIS. YOU WERE THERE. AND SO THERE ARE SEVERAL OF SEVERAL LINE ITEMS HERE UNDERNEATH THIS HAZARD MITIGATION PROJECT ARE A PROGRAM WITH THE GEOLOGIC SPONSORING THAT WOULD HELP COVER SOME OF THIS. SO. SO EVEN THOUGH THE COURT MIGHT CHOOSE TO IF YOU WILL ADVANCE THE FUNDING AND ALLOCATE YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO BE REIMBURSED BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY DOLLARS OUT THERE THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR THIS EXACT TYPE OF PROJECT AND BECAUSE WE HAVE A GRANDS DEPARTMENT THEY CAN PURSUE THAT. YEAH. AND IT WOULD BE IMPORTANT TO ALSO FIGURE OUT WITH SOME OF THESE PROGRAMS HERE WHICH ONES YOU CAN SPEND AND GET REIMBURSED ON. THAT'S SOMETHING YOU'VE GOT TO BE CAREFUL WITH WITH A LOT OF GRANTS. IT HAD SOME VETTING OF THAT AND BUT ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS I WOULD DO IS I WOULD I WOULD GET WHAT'S CALLED A GEM A JOINT EVALUATION MEETING. THESE ARE MEETINGS THAT ARE THERE. THEY'RE NOT AN OFFICIAL MEETING. THEY'RE IN AN UNOFFICIAL CAPACITY BUT YOU BRING ALL THE REGULATORY AGENCIES IN WITH YOUR PLAN SO TO SPEAK OR WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO. NOT YOUR LONG TERM DEVELOPMENT PLAN OF NORTH BEACH. JUST YOUR YOUR DRAINAGE PLAN AND YOU GO IN AND YOU LOOK AT THAT. AND IT'S IN IT'S IN A SETTING THAT'S VERY PRODUCTIVE. I JUST GOT THROUGH DOING ONE FOR THE PIER AND YOU GET A LOT OF COMMENT AND A LOT OF INPUT THAT YOU OTHERWISE WOULDN'T GET THROUGH AN OFFICIAL PROCESS.

AND YOU USE THAT INPUT THEN TO CREATE DESIGN IN THE MOST I GUESS ACCEPTABLE WAY YOU PUT IT ALL IN YOUR IN YOUR OFFICIAL APPLICATION WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS YOU'RE TRYING TO CUT DOWN ON THE TIME IT TAKES WORTH THE ALL THE BACK AND FORTH WITH THE REGULATORY AGENCIES. AND SO IF YOU KNOW WHAT THEIR ISSUES ARE CONCERNED ARE GOING TO BE YOU CAPTURE THEM RIGHT THEN AND THERE AND YOU MOVE ON AND YOU GET THAT IN YOUR AND IN YOUR OFFICIAL PERMIT YOU CAN DO THE SAME THING WITH FISH OR U.S. FISH AND WILDLIFE UNDER AN UNOFFICIAL SECTION 7 CONSULTATION WITH THEM AS WELL. LIKE FOR INSTANCE AT MINE THAT I WENT TO FISH WAS NOT ABLE TO BE THERE. WE DID IT OVER HERE AT THE GEO LOWE OFFICE BUT I'D ALREADY MET WITH THEM PRIOR TO GOING THERE ALREADY KNEW WHAT THEY WERE GONNA BE SO. SO YOU'RE VERY YOU'RE VERY WELL-CONNECTED AND THE SENSE OF YOU HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP IN WORKING PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH MISS NEW YEARS OF JELLO THE COURT THE CORE THE LOCAL CORE THE LOCAL U.S. FISH T.C. Q AND THE LIKE. IN OTHER WORDS THIS IS PART OF YOUR. THIS IS THE THIS IS VERY MUCH IN YOUR WHEELHOUSE WHEELHOUSE. YES MA'AM IN A WAY. WELL WHAT I'VE ALWAYS DONE AND IT'S

[00:45:04]

IT'S IMPORTANT AND I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO SAY HERE IS THAT EVEN WITH WHETHER SOMETHING REQUIRES WHAT'S CALLED AN INDIVIDUAL PERMIT WHICH IS ALSO OPINED ON BY ALL THE REGULAR AGENCIES OR NATIONWIDE NATIONWIDE PERMITS A COURT CAN ISSUE THEMSELVES UNDER THESE GUIDELINES. AND YOU DON'T GET ALL THE AGENCY COMMENT AND HAVE ALL THE BACK AND FORTH. BUT EVEN WITHOUT THAT OF OVER THE PAST 11 YEARS THAT I'VE BEEN HERE I'VE ALWAYS TRIED TO ENGAGE THESE AGENCIES IN EVERYTHING WE'RE DOING WHETHER IT NEEDS A PERMIT OR NOT BECAUSE IT MAKES THEM FEEL VESTED AND IT'S A WAY OF HELPING THEM CARRY OUT THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL MISSION. AND IT PAYS DIVIDENDS BECAUSE I LIKE TO BE IN THE KNOW AND YOU WORK ALSO WITH THE EDUCATIONAL THE HIGHER EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTE OH YEAH LIKE TEXAS 8 AM HARD AND YOU TEAM ASSIGNED CONRAD BLUCHER YEAH. AND THAT'S VERY MUCH ALSO A PART OF YOUR OF YOUR DAY TO DAY WHEELHOUSE AS WELL. BUT I THINK THIS IS GREAT. I THINK. I MEAN I DON'T HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS SO I THINK IT'S A GREAT PROPOSAL. I THINK WE'VE TALKED ABOUT HELPING THE CITY WHERE WE COULD. I THINK IT'S A GREAT WAY TO DO IT AND PUT IT KIND OF PUT OUR MONEY WHERE OUR MOUTH IS TO HELP US MOVE ALONG AGAIN. I THINK THE MOTION WAS JUST CONTINGENT UPON THEM AGREEING TO DO THEIR PART TO I GUESS TO BUILD A CANAL OR TO WHATEVER IT TAKES. BUT I THINK WE YOU KNOW THIS GREAT CONCEPT TO MOVE FORWARD ON. AND I KNOW WE HAVE OTHER COMMENTS HERE AND THE REASON I'M KIND OF GOING THROUGH IT LIKE THIS IS BECAUSE WE DO HAVE MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL WE DO HAVE THE CITY MANAGER WE DO HAVE ASSISTANT CITY MANAGER AND I'M NOT TRYING TO CREATE TESTIMONY BUT I AM TRYING TO GIVE THEM A REAL INSIGHT AS TO SOME OF THE RESOURCES SO RATHER THAN JUST IT SOUNDS LIKE WE HAVE SOME WILL WHICH IS EXCITING BUT I ALSO WANT TO LAY THE PREDICATE FOR THEM BECAUSE IT'S VERY HELPFUL FOR THEM TO SEE WHAT THE RESOURCES ARE DEPARTMENT WIDE. AND SO ANYWAY WITH THAT COMMISSIONER VON THANK YOU JUDGE FOR ALL YOUR WORK. YOU'VE REALLY EDUCATED YOURSELF ON THIS AND I THINK YOUR EXPERIENCE WOULD BE INVALUABLE. BUT I ALWAYS LIKE TO CUT TO THE CHASE. SO YOU KNOW I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS GOING TO PASS. THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF THE CANAL IS GOING TO PASS WITH THE CITY ON TUESDAY I DON'T KNOW BUT I WOULD JUST BE INTERESTED TO KNOW IF THE CITY IS EVEN INTERESTED IN US PARTNERING DOING THIS AND WORKING TOGETHER BECAUSE I THINK IT'S IN SUCH A GREAT MESSAGE TO THE CITIZENS WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER WE SAVE MONEY BY DOING THAT. SO I WOULD JUST BE INTERESTED JUDGE IF THE CITY IS INTERESTED OK OK. AND I'LL SIGN UP. IF THERE'S ANYBODY FROM THE CITY OR THAT WANTS TO JUST SAY SOMETHING. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PUT YOUR NAME ON THIS. I CAN DO IT FOR YOU. YOU JUST HAVE TO. I MEAN I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING THAT THAT IS THAT IS WOULD BE HELPFUL WHEN NOT PUBLIC COMMENT. JUDGE IT'S AN AGENDA ITEM I THINK YOU KNOW SO AND I KNOW I JUST PUT THE AGENDA ITEM ON JUST FOR THE COURTS CLERK JUDGE WE APPRECIATE FROM MY STANDPOINT AND FIRST OF ALL RUDY GAZA CITY COUNCILMAN AT LARGE FROM MY VIEWPOINT BEING PART OF A CITY COUNCIL AND CITY WE APPRECIATE THE EFFORT TO MAKE YOU KNOW YOU'RE TRYING TO HELP US MOVE THIS PROJECT ALONG. I THINK IT REPRESENTS GREAT BENEFITS TO NORTH BEACH INTO THE AREA. IT'S SIGNATURE PROJECT. AND AGAIN I JUST WANT TO SAY MY MY SINCERE GRATITUDE AND APPRECIATION FOR FOR THE SUPPORT THAT THE COUNTY AND THE COMMISSIONER IS GIVING US. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU. AND ALSO I KNOW WE HAVE OVER LONGER HERE AND HE WANTS TO GIVE A REPORT THERE WAS AN INTERGOVERNMENTAL HEARING THAT WAS HELD ON THURSDAY IN AUSTIN SENATOR EDDIE LUCIO IS THE CHAIR AND I THOUGHT IT WAS INCREDIBLE JUST FOR US TO KNOW HEY WE'RE ON IT ARE ALL OF OUR TEAM WAS THERE WE WERE REPRESENTED WELL. BUT WHAT WAS EXCITING IS THE VERY NEXT DAY IT AFFORDED ME AS YOUR COUNTY JUDGE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SIT IN FRONT OF MARK HAVEN'S DEPUTY CLERK OF THE GENERAL LAND OFFICE AND THE INTERGOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS DIRECTOR. I CAN'T MARRY MARY ELLEN'S LAST NAME. AND HEATHER MARIA HEATHER'S LAST NAME FOR WHO'S THE HEAD OF THE MITIGATION LAB GROWN AND I WAS ABLE TO DISCUSS WITH THEM NOT ONLY THIS PROJECT BUT ALL OF THE NUECES COUNTY DRAINAGE ASSESSMENT THAT WE'RE ABOUT TO UNDERTAKE. AND I I'M ABLE TO DO THAT BECAUSE WE HAVE SUCH A STRONG LEGISLATIVE TEAM. SO WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THAT HEARING WHERE THEY SAID THEY WANTED TO HEAR FROM LOCAL LEADERS I AM INSIDE THE GLO'S OFFICE. AND WHILE THEY DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS NORTH BEACH PROJECT THEY WERE INCREDIBLY INTERESTED AND THEY'RE INTERESTED IN NUECES COUNTY'S DRAINAGE PROJECTS AS A WHOLE AND WHAT HUGO'S GOING TO GIVE US IS A LITTLE RENDITION OF THE DOLLARS THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO THE CITY. NOW WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IN THE MOTION IS THE 250 BUT HUGO TELL US WHAT'S REALLY OUT THERE TO HELP THE CITY WITH BECAUSE OF OUR GRANTING DEPARTMENT. WELL FIRST OF ALL LET ME JUST ECHO WHAT YOU HAD SAID EARLIER. I THINK THE COUNTY IS IS WELL SITUATED BECAUSE OF

[00:50:03]

THE PEOPLE THAT YOU HAVE IN PLACE. THERE'S NO QUESTION THAT WITH MR. CROSS IN HIS INNER RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE VARIOUS AGENCIES IS A HUGE PLUS FOR US. THE FACT THAT WE HAVE A LEGISLATIVE TEAM THAT KNOWS ITS WAY AROUND IS ALSO INCREDIBLE. WE'VE GOT TIM RICHARDSON WHO WAS THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PUTTING THE RESTORE ACT IN ITS FIRST PLACE SOME YEARS AGO WHEN THE EXXON VALDEZ ACCIDENT HAPPENED. HE IS STILL DRAWING MONEY FOR A KODIAK ISLAND IN ALASKA. AND SO JUST A QUICK RUNDOWN.

THERE'S NO QUESTION THAT THERE IS DEEP WATER HORIZON FUNDING OPTIONS TO THIS COMMUNITY. AND IF WE CONTINUE TO JUST SIT BACK AND NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OR GO AFTER IT IT IS GOING TO BE AN OPPORTUNITY LOST. NOW YEARS AGO WE ATTEMPTED TO TRY TO REPRESENT THE COASTAL BAND. WE WEREN'T SUCCESSFUL BUT IT'S OK. WE ENDED UP REPRESENTING JEFFERSON COUNTY AND JEFFERSON COUNTY HAS BEEN THE NET BENEFACTOR OF ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS. IT WILL CONTINUE TO RECEIVE MONEY. SO WHAT I'M TELLING YOU IS IF THERE IS MONEY STILL THERE IT WILL BE THERE THROUGH A 20 THIRTY ONE TWENTY THIRTY ONE. SO HOPEFULLY THIS WILL NOT BE THE ONLY PROJECT THAT WILL BE YOU KNOW GOING AFTER MONEY. NOW THE OTHER THING THAT'S IMPORTANT IS THAT THERE IS MONEY AVAILABLE ON THE BUCKET ONE AND THEN THERE'S THIS PROJECT THIS NORTH BEACH PROJECT WOULD BE ELIGIBLE UNDER UNDER UNDER BUCKET ONE. IT WOULD ALSO BE ELIGIBLE FOR ABOUT 25 PERCENT OF THE MONEY THAT'S AVAILABLE UNDER BUCKET 3. NOW WHAT'S INTERESTING IS THAT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE CAPTION THAT CREATED THE DEEP WATER HORIZON ACT RESTORE STANDS FOR RESOURCES ECO SYSTEM STABILITY SUSTAINABILITY TOURIST OPPORTUNITIES AND REVIVED ECONOMIC ECONOMIES WE FIT EVERY CATEGORY UNDER THAT CAPTION. BUT THE OTHER THING THAT'S INTERESTING IS THAT WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT RE TRYING TO REINVENT THE WHEEL. YOU GOT A HANDOUT THAT I THINK YOU HAVE IF YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY GO TO THE TO THE INNOVATION THAT WAS DONE INSTEAD IN STATEN ISLAND IN NEW YORK THE LIVING BREAKWATER. AND THERE'S A THERE'S A WEB SITE YOU CAN GO TO THERE'S A LITTLE VIDEO AND A NARRATIVE AND THIS IS ALMOST A DUPLICATION OF WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO OR THIS COMMUNITY IS TRYING TO DO COLLABORATIVELY FOR NORTH BEACH. AND LET ME JUST TELL YOU THE ATLANTIC'S THE ATLANTIC SEA IS A LOT HARDER AND HARSH. THEN WE'RE GONNA BE DEALING WITH HERE ON OUR NORTH BEACH BUT WE HAVE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO. AND IF YOU READ YOUR HAND OUT DO YOU REALLY HAVE THIS COLLABORATION. THE OTHER THING THAT'S IMPORTANT IS THAT THE PORTS FUTURE THE PORTS FUTURE ARE DRIVING ENGINE IS THE NEED FOR DREDGED MATERIAL PLACEMENT FROM THE DEEPENING OF OUR PORT. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY FOR THEM TO UTILIZE THAT TO PROVIDE THE BREAKWATER THAT THAT EVERYBODY IS TALKING ABOUT. SO I MEAN THE MOVING PARTS OF THIS IS JUST PHENOMENAL. I MEAN WE COULDN'T WRITTEN A BETTER SCRIPT THAT THE TIMING ELEMENTS OF WHAT THE PORTS DOING WHAT THE CITY HOPEFULLY WILL DO WHAT THE COUNTY CAN PARTICIPATE IF THAT'S AT THIS LEVEL AND HAVING IT ALL COME TOGETHER. IT'S A WIN WIN. LET ME JUST TELL YOU SOME I THINK IT'S A HUGE GAME CHANGER FOR THIS COMMUNITY AND FOR NORTH BEACH. I MEAN I REMEMBER I'M A LOT OLDER AND ARE YOU ALL SITTING HERE BUT I REMEMBER YEARS YOU KNOW 50 60 YEARS AGO ENJOYING NORTH BEACH AND EVEN THEN IT WAS NOWHERE NEAR THAT. NOW THE ONLY OTHER PERSON THAT ENJOYED IT MORE THAN I DID WAS JUST JACK BECAUSE HE WAS THERE EVERY WEEKEND. AND BUT YOU KNOW WHAT HAS HAPPENED AND WHAT HAS TRANSPIRED. BUT THE TAKEN DOWN OF THE BRIDGE IS OPENING UP THAT OPPORTUNITY WHERE WE SPLIT THAT COMMUNITY OF NORTH BEACH WITH THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE ORIGINAL NORTH HARBOUR BRIDGE. IT'S NOW COMING DOWN AND NOW WE'RE REOPENING THAT OPPORTUNITY. AND SO AGAIN FUNDING IS AVAILABLE. YOU'VE GOT THE TEAM IN PLACE. WE'RE READY TO GO TO WORK. I MEAN A MINUTE'S NOTICE. I HOPE YOU'LL HAVE TIME TO LOOK AT THE INFORMATION THAT I'VE PROVIDED YOU TO KIND OF GET YOUR GLIMPSE BUT LOOK AT THE STATEN ISLAND PROJECT. IT ALMOST MIRRORS WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO HERE. AND FOR A LOT LESS MONEY AND I'M GOING TO ASK YOU PROVIDED THE COMMISSIONERS WITH A NICE SYNOPSIS I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANYTHING PROPRIETARY YOU'VE GOT FOLKS IN THE CITY IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND I'LL GIVE THEM MY COPY IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN EXTRA ONE AND I'LL GET ANOTHER ONE PRINTED BUT THIS REALLY DOES OUTLINE THE FEDERAL THE FEDERAL DOLLARS. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FOUR BILLION DOLLARS OF MITIGATION MONEY AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ONE POINT SEVEN AND KEEP TWD LOANS COMING. THIS IS MORE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS. AND WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS IS THAT THAT WE MEET ALL THE CRITERIA FOR THIS PROJECT. SO ONE OF THE MAJOR CONCERNS I'VE HEARD IT'S VERY VALID

[00:55:05]

IS THEY'RE WORRIED ABOUT THE EXTENSION OF DOLLARS YOU KNOW BEYOND WHAT THE COMFORT ZONE IS WHICH IS AROUND THAT 40 TO 50 MILLION DOLLAR COMFORT ZONE. AND WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS THAT WE HAVE THE TEAM IN PLACE AND IT'S RIPE AND IT'S AND IT FITS THE WHAT THEY'RE LOOKING FOR TO BE ABLE TO GO CHASE THESE DOLLARS AND THAT NOBODY HAS DONE IT. WE HAVE NOT BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF ANY OF THESE TYPES OF DOLLARS SAVING EXCEPT THE 22 MILLION SCOTT CROSS GOT FOR US FROM COAST TO POCKETS WHICH WE UTILIZE. BUT WHEN YOU COMPARE THAT TO JEFFERSON COUNTY YOU KNOW IT'S OUR TURN AND WE NEED TO ADVANCE THESE PROJECTS AND. AND SO I THINK THAT THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT I THINK THIS WOULD BE A GOOD DOCUMENT TO HAND OUT. THIS ALSO DOVETAILS AND HERE'S THE OTHER TO THAT'S SIGNIFICANT WITH TOBY BAKER WHO HEADS THE TEAM FOR FOUR TEXAS. IT'S MUSIC TO THE EARS WHEN THEY HAVE COMMUNITIES ARE WILLING TO PUT SOME MONEY UP BECAUSE THEN YOU HAVE NOW EVERYBODY'S GOT SKIN IN THE GAME. IT'S IT'S A DIFFERENT DEAL BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS IS YOU'RE OUT THERE COMPETING AND WHEN OTHER COMMUNITIES STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND BRING MONEY TO THE TABLE AND THE RESOURCES AND THEN YOU DON'T GUESS WHO'S GONNA GUESS WHO'S GOING TO HAVE THE FIRST SHOT. THAT'S RIGHT. AND SO WELL AND ALSO WE DID NOT ADDRESS GO MAKE THE FUNDING AND I DON'T WANT A COMMISSION CHOOSING TO PANIC BECAUSE HE RELIES ON GO MADE THE FUNDING FOR HIS POLICING. BUT IT'S GONE UP FROM FOUR HUNDRED FORTY FOUR THOUSAND A YEAR OVER LAST TO SIX HUNDRED SIXTY SIX THOUSAND. I SPOKE WITH AS I SAID DEPUTY CLERK ON FRIDAY HAVENS THE JELLO HE TOLD ME THAT IT'S GONE FROM I BELIEVE 8 MILLION TO 45 MILLION IN THE LAST DECADE FOR THE GENERAL LAND OFFICE FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL KIDS OF TEXAS AND DEL MESA IS GOING TO CONTINUE THE TREND FOR INCREASED FUNDING.

I ALSO BELIEVE THAT THAT THAT WE COULD IN THE FUTURE CONTINUE OUR ALLOCATION COMMISSIONERS POSSIBLY THROUGH GO SAID GOMEZ THAT SPECIFICALLY LOOKS FOR PERMIT AND FOR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT. AGAIN YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THESE BUCKETS OF MONEY YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE THE RIGHT TEAM THE RIGHT ADVOCACY AND THE RIGHT THE RIGHT QUITE FRANKLY ATTITUDE. BUT I THINK THAT WE'RE LEAVING EVEN MORE ON THE TABLE.

WE'RE JUST ONLY ABLE TO BRING FORTH TODAY SO MUCH. BUT AGAIN GO MAKE SOME MONEY.

THERE'LL BE 90 MILLION DOLLARS THROUGH THE YEAR 2031. YEAH THAT FUND IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO INCREASE. HERE'S ANOTHER THING THAT'S INTERESTING. THE CITY AND THE LEGISLATURE TIME AND TIME AGAIN THROUGH JAIL HAS RECEIVED MONEY TO RESTORE THAT BEACH TO RESTORE OUR BEACHES. AND GUESS WHAT IT IS JUST A CONTINUATION OF MONEY BEING THROWN DOWN THE DRAIN AND UNTIL WE REALLY DO SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT LONG TERM FOR THE VIABILITY OF NORTH BEACH THAT WE'LL CONTINUE TO JUST NICKEL AND DIME THAT SITUATION AND KEEP IT PRESENTABLE. AND WHEN WE'VE GOT AN ANCHOR OF THE TEXAS STATE AQUARIUM AND WE HAVE THE THE THE LEXINGTON AND IT'S JUST I MEAN TO THINK OF WHAT THE POSSIBILITIES COULD BE FOR THAT AREA AND WHAT IT MEANS TO THIS COUNTY AND TO THIS COMMUNITY IS JUST STAGGERING. AND I THINK THAT WE NEED TO KNOW IT'S UP TO YOU ALL. I'M JUST TELLING YOU THAT YOU HAVE OPTIONS AND YOU HAVE MONEY THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU AND TO THIS COMMUNITY THAT IF WE DON'T GET THEM SOMEONE ELSE WILL. LET ME JUST TELL YOU I THINK THAT FROM FROM FROM THE COURTHOUSE TO THE WHITE HOUSE WE WILL HAVE PEOPLE'S ATTENTION WHEN IT COMES TO THAT DOING THIS PROJECT BECAUSE IF I'M RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT I'M GONNA BE TALKING ABOUT THE LARGER THE THIRD LARGEST EXPORT IMPORT IN TRINIDAD YOU'RE NOT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT ARE YOU.

I KNOW. OKAY. OH MY GOSH YOU WOULD LOCK ME UP OVER YOU SCARED ME. NOW WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO REALLY HIGHLIGHT WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE. AND I THINK THAT IN ALL THE VISITS AND EVERYTHING ELSE WE HAVE I MEAN YOU KNOW OUR UNITED STATES SENATORS WE HAVE OUR CONGRESSMEN WE HAVE EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO REALLY TAP INTO THOSE RESOURCES BECAUSE I THINK THEY'RE ALL WILLING AND ABLE TO PROVIDE US THE ASSISTANCE THAT WE NEED. AND THAT AGAIN THIS IS A DECISION YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE IT'S ABOUT A DECISION AND HOPEFULLY THE CITY WILL ALSO ADHERE TO TO DOING SOMETHING THAT ALLOWS THE PROCESS TO MOVE FORWARD AND ALLOWS THE THE THE STUDIES TO BE DONE THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT. AND LET'S JUST SEE WHERE WE GO. BUT TO DENY THAT TO THIS COMMUNITY AND TO JUST SHUT IT OFF FOR NO REASON AND JUST SAY NOT WE DON'T WANT TO DO BECAUSE WE DON'T THINK IT'S GONNA GET APPROVED OR WE DON'T THINK THERE'S THAT.

YOU KNOW WHAT UNLESS WE STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND MOVE THE BALL FORWARD WE'LL NEVER KNOW. AND I THINK WE COULD HAVE GREAT SUCCESS BASED ON WHAT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED IN OTHER AREAS ACROSS THE COUNTRY UTILIZING THE SAME FUNDING SOURCE AS WELL. AND I DO WANT TO POINT OUT THAT ALREADY TIM RICHARDSON HAS ALREADY MADE THE PHONE CALLS AND I WILL BE VISITING TITUSVILLE OVER PROBABLY IN JANUARY PROBABLY NOT IN DECEMBER IT'S TOO QUICK BUT I AM GOING TO GO GET TO MEET WITH HIM WITH THAT WITH THOSE REGULATORY AGENCIES THAT THE STATE OF NEW YORK DOESN'T HAVE A GMO BUT THEY HAVE SOMETHING THAT'S THE EQUIVALENT AND WE'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO

[01:00:02]

GO AND GET FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCE WITH THEIR BREAKWATER WHICH IS DIFFERENT. BUT AGAIN THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO TO REALLY DEMONSTRATE THAT WE HAVE AN EXPERTISE YOU ALSO REPRESENT THE PORT OF CORPUS CHRISTI AS A MEMBER OF A VERY LARGE LEGISLATIVE TEAM. AND SO WOULD YOU BE WILLING AS OUR REPRESENTATIVE TO SPEAK WITH THEM ABOUT ALSO UTILIZING THEIR RESOURCES THEY HAVE A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF RESOURCES THAT HAVE NOT BEEN BROUGHT TO THIS TABLE. THEY ARE EXPERTS IN EXCAVATING. THEY ARE EXPERTS IN SHEET MATERIAL. THEY ARE EXPERTS IN DREDGE MATERIAL AND IT'S ABSOLUTELY INCUMBENT UPON US TO BRING ALL THESE RESOURCES TOGETHER. WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO COME UP WITH A NEW WORD. BUT JIM SOUNDS PRETTY DARN GOOD. THAT'S JOINT INTERAGENCY MEETINGS ARE ABSOLUTELY WHAT'S NECESSARY. I DID NOT ASK THIS BUT IT'S IMPORTANT BECAUSE THE CITIES HERE WE'RE NOT TRYING TO USURP THEIR AUTHORITY SCOTT. YOU HAVE WORKED WITH CITY OFFICIALS ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS THROUGH DOING PROTECTION. YOU WOULD BE OFFERING TO HELP LEAD OR CO-LEAD BUT. BUT YOU ARE YOU WOULD BE WOULD BE WILLING TO WORK WITH THE CITY IN ALL OF THESE REGARDS. IN OTHER WORDS IT'S NOT LIKE WE'RE GOING TO TAKE OVER ENVIRONMENTAL OR TAKE OVER PERMITTING BUT RATHER THAT WE WOULD WE WOULD BE OFFERING LEADERSHIP AND RESOURCES. ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. MANAGERS AND ONI WELCOME THANK YOU JUDGE. I JUST WANT TO WELCOME COMMISSIONER VANCE. QUESTION IN TERMS OF IS THE CITY WILLING TO PARTNER AND WE DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT THERE IS A CITY ALREADY IS PARTNERING WITH RIGHT. SO THE CITY AND THE COUNTY NOT TOO LONG AGO APPROVED THE TERMS IN A COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP WAY. BOTH ENTITIES HAVE BEEN AT THE TABLE THE SAME TABLE FROM DAY ONE. AND SO WE'RE STILL COMMITTED TO PARTNERING WITH THE COUNTY.

IN FACT THE CITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI AT LEAST ONE OF THE THINGS I'M FOCUSED ON IS PARTNERSHIP NOT JUST WITH NUECES COUNTY BUT WITH THE REGIONAL GOVERNMENTS THAT INCLUDE INGLESIDE SAMPAT COUNTY ALL THE OTHER REGIONAL COUNTIES. ONE OF THE THINGS WE KNOW IS THAT THE CITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI OVER THE YEARS OR DECADES HAS BEEN A REGIONAL COLLABORATOR REGIONAL PARTNER. AND IF WE JUST LOOK AT THE PRODUCTION OF WATER THE CITY PRODUCES WATER FOR OVER 300000 RESIDENTS. BUT IN FACT WE PRODUCE IT FOR 500000 RESIDENTS ALONG THE GULF COAST. THAT INCLUDES NOT ONLY IN THE NUECES COUNTY BUT SIX OTHER COUNTIES. AND THAT JUST SPEAKS TO THE TO THE POINT OF PARTNERING AS A REGIONAL COLLABORATOR TO GET MAJOR EVENTS DONE. SO WE DEFINITELY WILL CONTINUE TO PARTNER WITH THE COUNTY WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR MOTION TODAY AND JUST TO CLARIFY THE FIFTY THOUSAND IS FROM EXISTING CERTIFICATE STORES FROM GRANTS.

THAT'S CORRECT. IT WOULD BE FROM EXISTING CERTIFICATES OF OBLIGATION ACTUALLY DATING BACK TO 2016. WE ALSO HAVE 20 19 AVAILABLE BUT WE HAVE PLENTY IN 2016. I HAVE ASKED.

I ASKED BOBBY TO STAY A LITTLE BIT LATER FROM ESTRADA IN HOPE THAT BECAUSE I WANT TO TRIPLE CHECK YOU KNOW OBVIOUSLY EACH CEO HAS REQUIREMENTS THAT IT NEEDS TO FIT. I WANT TO TRIPLE CHECK WITH HIM THAT THIS WOULD BE AN APPROPRIATE USE BUT MY BACKSTOP IS IN DALE ALREADY MET WITH ME AND OUR AUDITOR AND SAID HE THINKS IT FITS BUT WE ALL AGREE THAT GOH MESA IS A PERFECT FUNDING SOURCE AS WELL. AND THERE COULD BE AN ALLOCATION COMMISSIONER LIKE IF I COULD JUST HAVE CEOS YOU KNOW HELP WITH IVY MCGEE. I MEAN THERE'S A WAY TO RECLASSIFY AND REALLOCATE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT I WOULD I WOULD PURSUE MAJOR GRANTING OPPORTUNITIES TO HELP WITH A VARIETY OF SUBJECT MATTERS FOR DRAINAGE. BUT I WOULD ALSO LOOK TO KEEP OUR INDIRECT COST ALLOCATION ALIVE AND WELL SO THAT IF THERE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY WE COULD PAY OURSELVES BACK. I'M ALWAYS HAPPY TO ADVANCE FUND BUT IF THERE IS A WAY TO GET PAID BACK WE'RE GOING TO PURSUE IT. AND QUITE FRANKLY WE HAVE ONE OF THE ONLY INDIRECT COST ALLOCATION AT NO COST TO US SOFTWARE PROGRAMS I THINK IN THE STATE. MARIA WITH EAST. WE ARE THE LEADER IN INDIRECT COST ALLOCATION RECOVERY ON GRANTS ON FEDERAL AND STATE GRANTS. NO OTHER COUNTY HAS PURSUED THAT. WE'VE GOT IT SOMETHING WE JUST DID. SO WE HAVE A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF IT AND THEN FILE. SO YOU WOULD GET DIRECT ALLOCATION IT WOULD BE A SURE THING IF IF IT WAS THE WILL OF THIS COURT BUT THEN WE WOULD ALSO APPLY TO GET US PAID BACK. BUT HERE'S THE BEAUTY. I'D BE WILLING TO WORK WITH YOU KNOW YOUR TEAM TO PUT FORTH A 100 MILLION DOLLAR GRANT BECAUSE THE COMPETITION THAT TAUGHT ANVIL GOT WAS A ONE BILLION DOLLAR COMPETITION FROM CDC AND THEY GOT 60 MILLION FOR BREAKWATER.

[01:05:04]

WHAT'S FASCINATING IS THAT OURS IS A TWO BILLION DOLLAR ALLOTMENT AND I CONFIRMED WITH THE JELLO ON FRIDAY THAT THIS WOULD BE THE TYPE OF PROJECT THAT WOULD BE THAT WE COULD APPLY FOR. AND THEY SAID YES. SO I ALWAYS DO MY HOMEWORK BECAUSE I THINK THE A STUDENT IS NOT NECESSARILY THE SMARTEST IN THE CLASS BUT BOY IS THAT THE STUDENT THAT WORKS THE HARDEST. I'VE ALWAYS BEEN AN A STUDENT AND I THINK IT'S BECAUSE I HAVE A REAL UNDERSTANDING OF HOW ALL THESE THINGS FIT IN. AND YOU'RE RIGHT. WE HAVE SO MANY AMAZING PROJECTS. WE JUST WORK TOGETHER AFTER THAT WONDERFUL HEATED DISCUSSION. THIRTY MINUTES LATER WE'RE ON THE PHONE WORKING ON A GOOD SOLUTION FOR COUNTY ROAD 33 AND THEN WE'LL TURN AROUND AND WE'LL BE ON A GOOD SOLUTION FOR CITY COUNTY HEALTH OR ANIMAL CARE SERVICES ARE WE'RE NOT IN IT FOR ONE ISSUE. WE'RE IN IT FOR AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY AND THAT'S WHAT I LIKE ABOUT YOU BEING HERE TODAY. I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR WILLINGNESS TO COME AND LISTEN AND AND SEE HOW WE CAN HELP. BUT I KNOW TWO HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND SEEMS LIKE A DROP IN THE BUCKET BUT BOY IS IT AN IMPORTANT DROP IN AND IN THE SENSE OF IT WOULD START US OFF ON THE RIGHT FOOT. GEORGE CAN I JUST ASK WOULD THAT BE LIKE SAY PART OF THE MOTION I GUESS THAT WOULD BE ASSUMING THAT THE CITY DOES MOVE. YES WE COULD MAKE IT CONTINGENT UPON. RIGHT. I MEAN WE WOULDN'T WANT TO START SOMETHING UNLESS THE CITY I GUESS THEY'RE NOT TRYING TO. NO NO I THINK THAT'S HOW OUR COUNCIL'S GONNA VOTE. BUT I WOULD THINK THAT WOULD BE PART OF WHAT WE WOULD WANT TO DO IS NOT START ANY WORK UNTIL THE COUNCIL COMMITTED TO THAT. RIGHT. I MEAN YEAH SURE. YOU MAY WANT TO JUST ELABORATE WHAT IT OR THAT IS JUST MEANS THAT I GUESS A VOTE TOO BUT I GUESS I'M GUESSING WOULD BE A VOTE FOR THE COUNCIL TO MOVE FORWARD ON THE CANAL WOULD BE THE APPROPRIATE WAY TO TIE THAT IN AND WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU COULD BRING ACCURATE INFORMATION AND NOT SPECULATION. SO THAT'S WHY TO ME IT WAS IMPORTANT TO BRING FORTH THIS AGENDA ITEMS DAYS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE YOU CAN TELL YOU SOMETHING REAL TOMORROW IS THAT I MEAN BECAUSE I WOULDN'T THINK WE WOULD NEED TO SPEND THAT MONEY BEFORE THE COUNCIL COMMITTED TO THE CANAL. RIGHT MIKE MISSING SIMPLY TO SPEND IT BEFORE I THINK BELINDA WANTS TO SAY SOMETHING ON THE CONTINGENCY AND WE CERTAINLY CAN LOOK INTO IT FURTHER BUT WE MIGHT VERY WELL NEED TO MEMORIALIZE THIS IN AN AGREEMENT FOR IT SPENT. SO I THINK TODAY'S VOTE IS THAT IT'S THE WILL OF THE COURT TO SPEND THAT TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY AND THEN AN ENTIRE LOCAL FOLLOW UP WITH ANY NECESSARY IN OUR LOCAL. WELL YEAH OF COURSE ABSOLUTELY. THAT WOULD GO WITHOUT SAYING I APPRECIATE YOU SAYING IT THOUGH BECAUSE THAT'S THAT'S RIGHT. AND I GUESS IT WOULD JUST BE BECAUSE THIS THIS MONEY WOULD BE THE STUDY IN THE FOR THE DESIGN OF RIGHT I MEAN IT WOULD BE TIED TO THE CANAL. SO I WOULD THINK WE WOULD STILL WANNA MAKE IT CONTINGENT. RIGHT. I'M FINE. I MEAN YOU CAN'T. THERE WOULD BE NO REASON TO PERMIT SOMETHING THAT'S NOT GONNA BE DONE RIGHT. OKAY. I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THE MOTION IS CLEAR AND WE JUST WANT TO. YEAH I THINK DEPENDING ON HOW THE COURT VOTES I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO TAKE BACK. I GUESS WE'LL PROBABLY HAVE A MEETING TOMORROW AND WE SAY THAT WE'VE MADE A COMMITMENT BECAUSE YOU KNOW WE DID COME TO YOUR MEETING AND SAY IF THERE'S WAYS WE CAN HELP THAT WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO HELP AND I THINK THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT PROJECT AND HOPEFULLY THIS WILL HELP. BRIAN I AGREE WITH YOU I THINK IT NEEDS TO BE CONTINUED ON APPROVAL OF THE CANAL AND MR. STONE THANK YOU FOR COMING FORWARD BECAUSE THERE'S IT'S IMPORTANT THAT THE PUBLIC HEAR YOU SAY THAT YOU KNOW YOU'RE LEADING THE CITY AND SO A LOT OF THINGS ARE OUT THERE AS ALWAYS SO IT'S IMPORTANT THEY KNOW YOU DO SUPPORT THIS WORKING TOGETHER AND I KNOW WE HAVE DONE THAT AND THAT'S A GOOD THING. SO I THINK WE ALL WIN WHEN WE DO THAT. SO THANK YOU. THANK YOU COMMISSIONER YOU KNOW LISTEN HERE. YOU KNOW IN THE LAST ME WE ARE THE CITY COUNCIL AND I KNOW WE GOT HEATED DISCUSSIONS AND YOU KNOW PEOPLE KIND OF THREW ROCKS BOTH WAYS I GUESS AND I WAS REALLY SADDENED BY THE WAY THINGS GOT OUT OF HAND. BUT YOU KNOW AND AFTER THE MEETING AT ALL. IN FACT I TALKED TO THE JUDGE AND I SAID JUDGE HOW MUCH ARE WE PUT INTO THIS AT THE TIME. SHE SAID NOTHING.

YOU KNOW AND WHEN WE PUSH IN LIKE BULLDOGS TO GET THIS GUY SPEND THE MONEY AND WE'RE NOT DOING YOU KNOW PUT NO MONEY IN THERE WHY. I MEAN IS OUR MONEY. THEY SHOULD DO WHATEVER THEY WANT WITH IT. YOU KNOW IF WE WANT HER SKIN IN THE GAME LIKE SOMEBODY ELSE SAID AND I THINK YOU WANT TO REALLY BE A SKIN IN THE GAME AND WE BELIEVE IN IT AS MUCH AS WE DO AND WHAT I WANT TO COME IN. THREE MILLION DOLLARS THAT'S OUR CONTRIBUTION. I MEAN I THINK YOU WANT TO REALLY TALK OR PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS. YOU KNOW ALL HAVE YOURS. WE'RE FIGHTING FOR. BUT HE WANTS IT. WELL LET'S LISTEN TO HER TONE THAT WAS NOTHING. WITH THREE MILLION DOLLARS. HEY LET'S GO FOR IT. YOU KNOW MAYBE TO ENCOURAGE THE CITY TO SAY YOU KNOW WHAT WE REALLY REALLY ARE PARTNERS. LET'S DO IT. I WOULD JUST DISAGREE WITH YOU ON SOMETHING. WELL I'M.

I'M NOT FINISHED YET. IT'S A NICE THOUGHT. IT'S NOT THE CITY'S MONEY IT'S NOT THE COUNTY'S MONEY IT'S THE CITIZENS MONEY. IT'S ALL RIGHT BUT THEY'RE JUST

[01:10:03]

GOING FROM THEIR BUDGET NOT OURS. SO THE OTHER THING IS THAT I THOUGHT ABOUT THAT JUDGE AND YOU KNOW BOTH TALKED ABOUT IT AND YOU KNOW WHAT. I CAME BACK AND I REALLY. IN FACT I GOT PUT ON THE AGENDA FOR THE NEXT MEETING YOU KNOW AND I SAW A NEW AGENDA FOR TODAY. SO I JUST YOU KNOW AT THE SUMMER I KNOW IT'S DIFFICULT TO SPEND YOUR MONEY AND TURN THINGS. I'M NOT REALLY CONVINCED THE CANAL WILL BE THERE'S NOT THE SOLUTION MIGHT BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION YOU KNOW. AND I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU WOULD KEEP THE CANAL CLEAN I GUESS. THERE'S A LOT OF QUESTIONS STILL THAT I HAVE YOU KNOW AND I'M FOR A PROJECT. BELIEVE ME WHEN YOU JUMP INTO NORTH BEACH BED YOU KNOW IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE BEEN ALL WAY OVERDUE. AND YOU KNOW YOU WANT PEOPLE THERE DESERVE TO BE HELPED AND TO LIKE ANYBODY ELSE. AND TODAY WE'RE HERE ALL THOSE MONEYS AND ALL THOSE GRANDS AND YOU KNOW AND THIS IS GREAT. BUT YOU KNOW I SIT HERE JUDGE FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS AND WHENEVER I HAD THIS KIND OF CONVERSATION FOR THE COLONIAS OR THE DRAINAGE PROBLEMS WE HAVE THERE ABOUT INVESTING ALL THIS MONEY YOU KNOW WITH THE DRAINAGE IS IT THAT SHOULD BE DONE A LONG TIME AGO AND KEEP FLOODING OR COLONIAS AND GIVE FLOODING THOSE PEOPLE YOU KNOW AND WE'VE GOT MAJOR DRAINAGE AREAS OR DITCHES THAT NEED TO BE INCOME COMMISSION MODEL OF MINE IN THE FIELD. I MEAN I DON'T KNOW BUDDY YOU WANT UP TO GRANTS. I MEAN I DREW MONEYS AND YOU KNOW WE BRING THIS UP AND UP AND WE KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS BUT NOBODY BRINGS IT BRINGS IT UP. YOU KNOW A STUDENT. WELL I MEAN A STUDENT I GUESS WHEN IT COMES TO THE COLONIAS AND COME TO THE DRAINAGE AND TO THE FLOODING IN THE COLONIAS BUT YOU KNOW JUST LIKE WE'RE DOING HERE NORTH BEACH WE SHOULD BE ALSO COME TO THE TABLE TO SAY WHAT CAN WE DO FOR THOSE PEOPLE IN THE WEST SIDE YOU KNOW GET THEM OUT OF THE FLOODS AND GET THEM OF HERE.

AND THAT'S WHY WE HAVE THE ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY FOUR MILLION DOLLAR GRANT PENDING WITH T.C. ACU THAT IS FOR PETRONE LA. THAT IS FOR THE COLONIAS AND THAT'S PROBABLY THE SINGLE BIGGEST GRANT THIS COUNTY HAS EVER PUT FORWARD. THIS HASN'T BEEN PUT IN ADVANCE LIKE WE'RE GOING TO HERE. I MEAN YOU KNOW WHY NOT. I'M THE ONE I KNOW WE INVEST IN AND ONE AND NOT THE OTHER. BUT I REALLY THINK THAT WE REALLY GONNA DO THIS. I MEAN I GOT THREE MILLION DOLLARS. THAT'S MY CHOICE. WELL I MEAN I APPRECIATE THAT. I'LL TELL YOU THAT WHEN YOU START LOOKING AT INDIRECT COST ALLOCATIONS YOU'RE GOING TO BE SHOCKED HOW FAST WE'RE GOING TO GET TO THREE MILLION DOLLARS.

THAT'S WHAT I LOVE ABOUT TRACKING THROUGH INDIRECT COSTS. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU GUYS DO THAT. YOU DON'T HAVE A GRANDS DEPARTMENT BUT I BET YOU HAVE SOME SORT OF A MECHANISM WHERE YOU I KNOW THAT BECAUSE OF TERS YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE SOME MECHANISM. WE WILL DO THAT TOO. BUT WHAT I'M REALLY AND I'M NOT OPPOSED TO DOING DO YOU HAVE ANY PROPOSAL FROM THE CITY'S PERSPECTIVE FOR THIS COUNTY. WE'RE HERE.

COME IN COME IN. DEFINITELY BRING IT BRING IT FORTH. BUT WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT THE TYPE OF FUNDING THAT IS OUT THERE THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AND IT'S GOING TO BE FOR OUR ENTIRE COUNTY NOT JUST FOR NORTH BEACH. IT'S JUST THAT NORTH BEACH HAPPENS AT PRESENT A PROJECT RIGHT NOW. I THINK YOU'RE LOOKING AT A 100 MILLION DOLLAR PROJECT THAT MIGHT EVEN PAY BACK THAT CANAL BUT IT'S ONLY A BACKSTOP RIGHT. IT CAN ONLY BE A BACKSTOP. BUT AGAIN EVERYTHING THAT I KNOW AND EVERYTHING THAT WE'VE BEEN PREPPING FOR IS INDICATES THAT THIS IS THE RIGHT TYPE OF PROJECT THAT WOULD THAT WOULD ATTRACT THE REGULATORY AGENCIES TO SAY YES TO THIS PROJECT. ONE LAST THING YOU KNOW LAST COURT COMMISSIONER GONZALEZ WE APPROVED WE THANKS TO EVERYBODY'S HELP HERE. WE APPROPRIATED A.M. AN RFQ TO GET A ENGINEERING STUDY NUECES COUNTY DRAINAGE ASSESSMENT. WE WILL KNOW WHERE WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE CONCENTRATING ONCE WE GET THAT ASSESSMENT. IT WILL BE FOR THE WEST SIDE. IT'LL BE FOR THE NORTHWEST SIDE. YOU KNOW IT'LL BE FOR AGRICULTURAL COMMUNITY AND IT WILL BE FOR FOUR NORTH BEACH AS WELL AS PUERTO RICANS. SO I THINK IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT I'M NOT SURE HOW MUCH THAT ASSESSMENT WILL COME YOU KNOW COME TO COST US BUT I BET IT'S GONNA BE A PRETTY SIZABLE AMOUNT. AND SO WHEN YOU COUPLE THAT WITH THE TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND I FEEL LIKE WE ARE MAKING CLOSE TO PROBABLY. I DON'T KNOW. BUT LET'S SAY SOMEWHERE AROUND ANOTHER HALF A MILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF INVESTMENT ON OUR NECK A MILLION DOLLARS TWO MILLION. AND I JUST HAD TO DO MORE THINGS AND I'M SURE I JUST DID WANT TO THANK COMMISSIONER COMMISSIONER GONZALEZ FOR REACHING OUT TO ME SEVERAL MONTHS AGO TO PARTNER. WE TALKED ABOUT PARTNERSHIPS THE PARTNER FUNDING FOR THE JUNIOR BACK ROAD. YES IT'S BEEN ON THE BOOKS FOR A LONG TIME AND I'VE NEVER MET COMMISSIONER GONZALEZ BUT HE FIGURED MY PHONE NUMBER OUT SOMEHOW AND WE HAD BREAKFAST AND WE TALKED ABOUT HOW CAN WE COLLABORATE JUNIOR BACK ROAD. AND SO THAT WAS APPROVED AT THE CITY AND I KNOW THE COMMISSIONERS COURT IS GOING TO APPROVE YOUR CONTRIBUTION SOON. AND WITH THAT I JUST DID WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE NO

[01:15:04]

COSMIC GUARDS A SMOKE AND COUNCILMAN MOREIRA IS ALSO HERE TODAY. YES. I'M SORRY YOUR BLOCKBUSTER IMPERFECT BUT I RECOGNIZE THOSE TWO INDIVIDUALS. YES ROLAND SORRY.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. HE'S LITERALLY GOT YOU IN MY LUNCH. AND COMMISSIONER MODEST THANK YOU JUDGE. NO THANK YOU PETER. THIS IS JUST IN GENERAL AND I AGREE IT ECHO EXACTLY WHAT COMMISSIONER GONZALEZ IS SAYING BECAUSE I FEEL THE SAME THING BUT I THINK THAT THIS IS POSITIVE FOR US ON THE COUNTY SIDE BECAUSE FOR SO LONG YOU KNOW WE PUT OUR OUR RESOURCES AND OUR EFFORTS INTO COUNTYWIDE ISSUES OR SOMETIMES INTO THE RURAL AREAS WHICH ARE OUR RESPONSIBILITIES. BUT I THINK IT'S ALSO GOOD TO SEE INVESTMENT WITHIN THE CITY FOR THOSE WHO ARE TAXPAYERS WHO SAY YOU KNOW OUR MONEY IS ALWAYS GOING OUTSIDE THE CITY LIMITS AND WHAT DO WE SEE INSIDE OTHER THAN THE COURTHOUSE AND YOU KNOW JUSTICE IS CARRIED OUT LAW ENFORCEMENT THINGS LIKE THAT. BUT THIS IS A GOOD PROJECT TO SHOW THAT THERE IS REINVESTMENT WITHIN THE LARGEST COMMUNITY THAT WE HAVE HERE IN THE COUNTY. AND SO I DO APPRECIATE APPRECIATE THAT OPPORTUNITY. TO ME I SEE THIS AS A POSITIVE. THIS IS A BIGGER PUSH FOR COUNTY WIDE DRAINAGE FOR THE DISCUSSION THAT YOU AND I HAVE HAD AND THE VISIONS THAT WE'VE HAD FOR FOR MANY YEARS NOW ON PUSHING THAT PLAN AND JUST INDIVIDUAL PROJECTS THAT WE CAN GO AFTER I AGREE. COMMISSIONER GONZALEZ MEETINGS LIKE ROB STAND ON GETTING IN OTHER AREAS BUT TO ANY THAT HAVE NEEDS OF DRAINAGE THAT THIS STARTS THE CONVERSATION. THIS IS A I THINK THE PERFECT CONDUIT TO SAY WE WANT TO BE A GOOD PARTNER WITH OUR WITH OUR PARTNERS IN THE CITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI HELP POSSIBLY SPUR A HUGE DO GREATER DEVELOPMENT AND BOOM OUT THERE ON NORTH BEACH BUT ALSO GETS US COMMITTED TO SAY ONCE THAT IS DONE OR AS WE CONTINUE TO WORK THROUGH THAT WE'RE ALSO WE'RE GOING TO WORK ON THE OTHER PARTS THAT DESPERATELY NEED IT. SO I MEAN WE ARE DOING STUFF. I KNOW YOU'RE DOING WORK ALREADY WITH DRAINAGE OFTEN BETTER IN THE U.N. AND OTHER AREAS AND SO WE'RE WE'RE LOOKING AT STUDIES AS WELL IN THE WESTERN PART SO I REALLY APPRECIATE THIS JUDGE'S OPPORTUNITY. WANT TO SOLVE OR AT LEAST START HELP WITH THIS ISSUE AND ALSO PUT OUR MONEY WHERE THEIR MOUTH IS.

RIGHT. WE WE TALKED A LOT LAST WEEK AND WE HAD THAT OPPORTUNITY BUT ALSO TO HAVE THAT FOLLOW UP AND SAY HERE IS SOME MONEY THAT WE WANT TO PUT IN SOME SKIN IN THE GAME.

BUT IT GOES TO THE BIGGER PICTURE THAT I HOPE THAT YOU WILL CONTINUE TO LEAD AND I'LL BE THERE TO HELP SUPPORT YOU ON THAT. WE HAVE DRAINAGE ISSUES COUNTYWIDE AND SO AS WE LOOK AND EXPLORE AND FIND OTHER RESOURCES THAT COME IN THAT WE CAN TACKLE THOSE BECAUSE THOSE ARE JUST AS IMPORTANT AS SUPPORTING NORTH BEACH THAT WE SUPPORT THOSE AND ALL OF OUR PRECINCTS. WE ALL HAVE AREAS THAT WE CAN POINT TO THAT HAVE DRAINAGE PROBLEMS THAT WE MUST FIX. SO I JUST THINK THIS IS A GREAT CHANCE FOR US TO BE ABLE TO START THAT AND CONTINUE TO PUSH THAT FORWARD AND FOR MANAGERS AND I GUESS IF YOU'RE GOING TO DO A REPORT I WOULD SAY THAT THAT THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN APPROVED. IT'S THE WAY TO SEE IP HAS IT LOGGED IN OF COURSE IT'S UP TO THE WILL OF THE COURT ONCE WE ONCE WE RECEIVE THE RF CUES BACK AND WE MAKE A SELECTION FOR THE HYDROLOGY ENGINEERING ASSESSMENT. BUT I HAVE MY MEMORY SERVES ME CORRECTLY IT'S HALF A MILLION DOLLARS THAT WE PUT FORTH FOR THAT FOR THAT STUDY AND SO IT MIGHT COST MORE. IT MIGHT COST LESS BUT JUST SO YOU KNOW THE COURT HAS THAT THAT WILL BE AN EXPERTISE THAT WE WILL USE REGIONALLY BUT WE WILL ALSO USE AS A RESOURCE TO BRING TO THE TABLE FOR THE CITY AS WELL. AND AGAIN WE'VE NEVER DONE IT BEFORE WE'VE DONE PORTIONS OF OUR COMMUNITY BUT WE'VE NEVER DONE AN NUECES COUNTY DRAINAGE ASSESSMENT. SO IF MICHAEL WERE HERE I'D ASK HIM HOW HOW LONG THAT'S GONNA TAKE. BUT SOMEHOW MY MEMORY SAID THAT HE WOULD GET IT POSTED AND AND IT WOULD BE MOST LIKELY A JANUARY DATE THAT WE WOULD MAKE THAT SELECTION FOR THAT HYDROLOGY ENGINEERING GROUP. BUT THAT'S CERTAINLY EXTRA AND IT'S SOMETHING THAT YOU WOULDN'T YOU WON'T HAVE TO SPEND ON BECAUSE WE'RE ALREADY DOING IT. SO THAT'S ANOTHER REALLY STRONG RESOURCE. AND SO NOW I'M REMEMBERING MY GRANDMOTHER WHO SAID GET TO IT. SO ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION THAT WAS MADE BY COMMISSIONER CHESNEY I BELIEVE IT WAS SECONDED ALREADY BY COMMISSIONER VON. THE MOTION FOR THE CLERK'S EDIFICATION IS THAT TWO HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS BE ALLOCATED FOR THE PURPOSES OF PERMITTING AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT FOR THE NORTH BEACH COLLABORATION WITH THE CITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI. CONTINGENT UPON OF COURSE THAT PROJECT MOVING FORWARD. AND ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING I LIE AND SAY NO JUST BECAUSE I SUPPORT IT BUT I SUPPORT HIM YOU KNOW I KNOW AND I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO MAYBE BRING THAT FORWARD ON ANOTHER AGENDA ITEM. I JUST DON'T WANT TO LOSE THE 250 BUT I KNOW THAT WE PROBABLY NEED TO HAVE A DISCUSSION WITH THE CITY TO SEE

[01:20:05]

WHAT WE WOULD USE THOSE DOLLARS FOR AND OF COURSE FOR ME I WAS READY WITH MY FUNDING SOURCE FOR THE 250 I NEED TO GET READY FOR WHERE A LARGER FUNDING SOURCE WOULD COME FROM. AND SO I JUST NEED SOME TIME TO WORK WITH DALE AND YOU AND EVERYBODY TO SEE IF THERE'S A WILL. BUT OF COURSE I KNEW. OK BUT I'M HAPPY TO WORK WITH YOU AND I JUST TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE FACT THAT THE VERY END OF THAT WORKSHOPS ARE UNKNOWN HE SAID HEY I'M CONCERNED ABOUT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN ABOUT PERMITTING AND THAT'S WHERE I WENT. OK I KNOW I CAN HELP THERE BUT I THINK IF WE HAD FURTHER TALKS MAYBE THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE WE CAN WE CAN DO IT WITH MY ENGINEERING DESIGN AND THAT WAS WHAT I WAS CONSIDERING. YEAH. NO I HEAR YOU YOU'RE THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE HALF OF THE DESIGN WHICH IS INTERESTING. I BET THEY'RE INTERESTED. SO YOU DIDN'T YOU DIDN'T KNOW THE GIFTS THAT KEEP ON GIVING WHEN YOU COME OVER HERE. ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU FOR THAT. AND WE'RE GONNA MOVE ON. WE HAVE JUST TWO MORE ITEMS. ONE IS ITEM NUMBER FOUR. AND THEN THERE'S A PUBLIC WORKS ITEM. ITEM NUMBER FOUR IS HIRING
