He stated the reality is the State of Florida has been hit really hard by this recession. This has been felt in the African American community more than any other place. He said now is the time for the Council to not get too skittish about spending money. The reality, which has been said by economist all other the Country is that in order to get out of this recession it will be necessary to invest in programs that provides opportunities and provides families with an opportunity to take care of their needs. The reality is that the Stimulus is not doing what is needed because it is not investing in these types of programs. Miami Gardens has a unique opportunity to not only serve the community's immediate needs but also become a beacon of what is needed around the Country,to jump start this economy. Latasha Carey, a representative of Quiznos, 19872 NW 27t' Avenue, Miami Gardens, Florida 33056, appeared before the City Council to express concern with the signage ordinance. As written the ordinance is not allowing her company to "step outside the box" to advertise to generate business for her company. She said she wanted to capture the traffic from the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl. Mayor Gibson asked whether Ms. Carey has been in communication with staff about this issue. Ms. Carey stated that she has spoken with representatives from the Code Enforcement Department. She said the ordinance allows her to use a spotlight and a balloon. However, it would not allow her to use a wavy banner because it moves. Councilwoman Pritchett recounted when the Sign Code was being crafted, the residents and business community was invited to participate and provide input. She asked whether Ms. Carey could meet with Deputy City Manager Farmer to work out an amicable solution, especially since this would only be seasonal. Councilman Williams shared that he is a business owner in the community as well and it is his understanding that this is a permitted use however, Code Enforcement has the final decision.. Regular City Council Agenda January 27, 2010 Page 3 CITY COUNCIL MINUTES - JANUARY 272010 Vice Mayor Gilbert asked the City Manager to review this issue for clarity. Manager Crew said her signage included a costume. Attorney Dickens said staff can certainly speak with Ms. Carey however, staff has to operate within the confines of the ordinance.

(SPONSORED BY COUNCILMAN ANDRE WILLIAMS) Councilman Williams thanked all those who spoke on behalf of this item. He said "My resolution will provide the struggling citizens of Miami Gardens with a short term program to ease them through the severe dark times b man sure out residents have access to state unemployment benefits. Make no mistake our local economy is in crisis. During the great depression years of 1930 and 1940 American had an annual unemployment rate ranging from 14% to 22%. With a 16% unemployment rate in Miami Gardens today, is double the unemployment rate in 2008. People are hurting, and I would like to do something about it. That is why we have to make sure the people who lost their jobs in this economic crisis can access the help that is available to them. This proposal does exactly that. My resolution will require that City dedicate a staff person to help residents access state unemployment benefits due to them. Staff will be available to handle calls and meet with residents when appropriate. It also directs the City to conduct a workshop at City Hall with representatives from the state agencies responsible for coordinating state unemployment benefits, to explain the process to our residents. My resolution will also require the City to add a link to our website, directing the unemployed to our staffer and their state unemployment agency. Many residents however, have already exhausted state unemployment benefits. My resolution would created up to one hundred (100) short term temporary public works City Jobs. This resolution will also provide the City of Miami Gardens with a pool of workers to maintain our neighborhoods in the fight against the blight and dispose that is threatened by this economic situation. The federal government has given us some NSP dollars to address come of the hundred and hundred of vacant and foreclosed homes in our community. Those federal dollars can only be used to fix up the few properties the city has purchased. This proposal is only for a two year program for a total cost of two million dollars. It is only for those individuals who have lost their jobs and exhausted their unemployment benefits, and have nowhere else to turn. Ultimately, this is about keeping our citizens working, keeping our community clean until our economy picks up again." Councilman Williams said this is a dramatic approach, one which he understands. However, it is needed and it is sound. He urged the Council's support for the passage of this resolution. Motion offered by Councilman Williams. This motion died for a lack of a second.
