A WORD FROM OUR

ELECTED OFFICIALS

Change is happening, and we are working together for a better Hallandale Beach. Through active participation in the Broward MPO, we are working for planning better options for transportation for our City. The issues of transit and mobility are one of my highest priorities, and I look forward to developing better opportunities for our community. In the upcoming months, I will be partnering with staff to produce “Meet the Mayor” segments where we discuss critical issues concerning Hallandale Beach. These will be available via social media or on HBTV. Topics such as development, sustainability, and economic development will be featured. Our goal is to enhance your quality of life.

MAYOR

KEITH S. LONDON KLONDON@COHB.ORG

I would like to share how my colleagues and I are working through an accountable and transparent development process to improve our community. Recently, we successfully negotiated a “due on sale clause” with the Diplomat property, and require the buyer to contribute $500,000 to support ongoing core City Services. In the next months, we will be working with staff to develop a comprehensive budget and invite you to be part of that process. Follow #HBBudget on social media for upcoming meeting dates.

Last, I want you to know that I consider all sides of issues and concerns before I decide on any particular topic. I look at the best approach for health, safety, and welfare of all. I welcome you to be part of the dialogue by sending me an email (klondon@cohb.org) or in person at one of my monthly townhall meetings, next one taking place on August 7 at 6 pm in the Cultural Center. I want to hear from you and want you to know we are HB here for you. FOR SPANISH TRANSLATION VISIT: COHB.ORG/SPANISHQ3HAPPENINGS

VICE MAYOR

MICHELE LAZAROW MLAZAROW@COHB.ORG

I am happy to report that thanks to the US Conference of Mayors, Mars Pet Care and our grant writing department, the city of Hallandale Beach was the winner of the “Better Pets For Cities” small city grant. With this $20,000 grant, the city of Hallandale Beach will establish a Responsible Pet Ownership campaign. Studies show that education drives positive outcomes for health and safety of the pet, pet owners and the community. When people are prepared for pet ownership and understand how to integrate them into their homes – less pets are lost or surrendered which alleviates stress on animal welfare organizations. Our community outreach program will kick off with a “Doggie Palooza” event some time in the summer or early fall. We want to help our community with any resources they may need to keep their pets healthy and happy, these needs may include microchipping, spay and neuter, food and medicine. Education about cruelty issues such as tethering dogs outside, leaving them in hot cars, or other unsafe conditions will also be part of our outreach. The Hallandale Beach Police Department and Parks Department will work together to ensure these programs are implemented in the best ways possible. Follow our pet initiative updates via social media by following #HBWoof. I invite everyone to be part of the Budget process and join us for the various workshops that the City Commission will have in the next months. Your input is important and I encourage you to be a voice in this process. We have a transparent form of government and want to keep you informed and engaged

through out each step of the process. I also want to let everyone know that as your Vice Mayor, I am listening to your concerns. I believe in a democratic and progressive government, and therefore, try to listen to all sides before making a final determination. Holding steadfast to a unique belief, without being willing to hear all sides leads to polarization. Though I may not be able to support every issue coming before the commission, I wholly appreciate your comments and engagement throughout each agenda item that is presented. Your opinions matter to me.Lastly, I hope all have a great summer and enjoy our beautiful parks and entertainment establishments we have in the City. Hallandale Beach is a city where we can all work, live and play. FOR SPANISH TRANSLATION VISIT: COHB.ORG/SPANISHQ3HAPPENINGS


Fellow Hallandale Neighbors & Friends: As always, know I am your number one supporter and champion when it comes to condo fraud and condo discrimination violations. Please look out for my upcoming monthly condo fraud town hall meetings. I want to thank everyone who helped with this year’s prom dress drive for our Hallandale students. Particularly, Hallandale community activists Donna Rubin and Joy Adams who took the entire drive as their responsibility and made this happen. We would not have had suits, dresses and shoes were it not for them. Also a huge thank you to PAL and Hallandale PD. Fellow community volunteers- Sabrina Javalleno, Steve Carlo, Pattie Ditto, Susie Lewis, and Barbara Southwick.Nancy Ferrante Gemma of Gemco Painting in Hollywood, FL - saved the day, by providing a storage space for dozens of dresses, but also donating new clothes racks and delivering them to the Hepburn Center.A heartfelt thank you to the following generous bridal and tuxedo shops/tailors: Mr. And Mrs. Harrell of Harrells Fine Mens Fashions- who not only custom made and fitted full tuxedos and suits (vests, bow ties and then some) - they came down to fit the young men from Hallandale High students., Ava Keller, Zola Keller, Ana Bueno of COMMISSIONER Paws2Care Coalition, Coral Gables Bridal, Merlili Bridal (Coral Gables), Wonderland ANABELLE TAUB Bridal (Margate, FL), Ms. Tierney- teacher at Gulfstream Academy. All of these ATAUB@COHB.ORG individuals made sure the kids in our community can feel like a prince or princess for a night. As always feel free to call me at 954-937-1006 or read my weekly updates at Facebook.com/AnabelleTaub18 FOR SPANISH TRANSLATION VISIT: COHB.ORG/SPANISHQ3HAPPENINGS

Educating Our Children for the Future Computer coding is the universal language and most important new skill for this generation of young people to have as they transition from school into the workforce. In Hallandale Beach, I have been proud to spearhead an effort to offer a coding program to our kids. I came into office and learned that the city had a non-profit arm known as The Future Foundation, which had been mismanaged and plagued by scandal. As our commission was working to close the doors on this troubled organization, we had to find a use for the nearly $100,000 remaining in its account. I am grateful to my colleagues for agreeing to allocate these funds to the instructional coding program effort. This program will open doors for our children to the jobs of the future. And for now, it won’t cost the taxpayers of Hallandale Beach one cent. Upcoming Elections On August 28, Elections will be held for partisan primaries, county commission, county and circuit court judgeships and referendums. If you want to have a say in COMMISSIONER what who governs and what policies are enacted, it is critical that you vote. Our RICHARD DALLY Hallandale Beach city elections aren’t until November, but if you’re only voting in RDALLY@COHB.ORG November, you are limiting your own voice and influence on important decisions. Please get to know who and what is on the ballot for August and make sure that you vote. If you need help, feel free to reach out to me by phone or email.

COMMISSIONER

MIKE BUTLER

MBUTLER@COHB.ORG

Traffic is an ongoing concern that is at the top of my priorities. I am partnering with City staff members to see the realization of complete streets. Our needs to focus on enhanced transit and pedestrian mobility will require a significant level of planning, along with your involvement. We encourage you to participate in our monthly Commission Meetings so that together we can plan effectively. Also, I am very encouraged to see the recent revitalization plans for the Fashion Arts Design District (FADD) and the numerous opportunities that exist for developers. I’d like to see a Hallandale Beach that offers innovative food cafes and artfocused establishments that would bring entertaining and cultural venues to our community. Last, I’d like to take a moment to remind our community to be prepared for the Hurricane Season. Please do not take preparation lightly. Follow the City’s social media for updates, or any of the many other relevant information sources regarding hurricane preparedness. I want to thank our community members for making Hallandale Beach a vibrant destination and a progressive community. FOR SPANISH TRANSLATION VISIT: COHB.ORG/SPANISHQ3HAPPENINGS

MINIMIZE POLLUTION Ground water is one of the most precious resources that we Floridians posses. Most of our water supply comes from rain, which recharges the Biscayne Aquifer. This aquifer provides most of the water that we drink, use for irrigation and for other daily activities. Our water supply can be easily contaminated by pollutants because it is located close to the land surface. Here are simple things that we can do in our everyday lives to help keep our water clean: -Pick up dog waste. If dog waste enters our ground water supply it can cause contamination in the form of bacteria (coliform), viruses and parasites. Dog waste can cause serious illness in humans and in fish. It can also lead to algal blooms because it contains nitrogen and phosphorus. -Be aware when you wash your car. Use biodegradable, phosphate free car wash soap and wash your car on area that is able to absorb water (such as grass and gravel). Don’t forget to empty your wash bucket into a sink or toilet. Cars washed on the street cause contaminated water to enter the storm drain. This water eventually impacts our ground water.

Have an issue? Report it.

- Practice proper lawn care. When needed, be sure to use natural fertilizer and pesticides on your lawn. Natural fertilizer and compost help keep your plants healthy and allows them to survive pests and diseases. If you must use synthetic fertilizer be sure to follow the application instructions. Tailor your pest control to specific pests. Over applying fertilizer and pesticides will not help your plants, it will only serve to contaminate our ground water supply.

WATER SAFETY TIPS It’s that time of year again! As school is out, we recommend parents to review water safety tips with their children. We anticipate that more people (including our children) will head to the pool and the beach. We must not forget the importance of water safety. It all begins with learning to swim. The City of Hallandale Beach offers swimming lessons year-round to help families prepare for the endless water festivities.

“Do your part... be water smart.” -Mike Carabeo

Here are some helpful tips to remain safe this summer: • Always to follow swim rules, whether at the beach or the pool • Swim near the lifeguard stand. • Don’t just pack life jackets. Wear them. • Look before you jump or swim into any body of water. • Never swim alone, swim in pairs. • If you see anyone in distress, practice: “Reach or throw, don’t go.” • Jumping in may place your life at further risk. See if there are any objects to throw or reach them to pull them to safety Following these simple tips can decrease the chances of danger and increase your chances of fun.

Keep up to date with the Parks & Rec Department at:

/HBParksRec

For more safety tips and information on how you and your family can attend swimming lessons, contact B.F. James Pool at (954) 457-1321.

Do-It-Yourself

TIPS

to Prepare Homes for Hurricanes

Hurricane Season Began June 1 Florida has had about twice as many hurricane landfalls in recorded history as any state, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. There are several easy steps homeowners can take to reduce the chances their property becomes a statistic. Hurricane season is here so Florida homeowners should consider the following do-it-yourself tips to protect their property:

INSTALL STORM SHUTTERS

Storm Shutters protect windows from strong winds. IDENTIFY SOMEWHERE TO SECURE OUTDOOR ITEMS

Items such as like furniture, garden tools, toys and garbage cans. Strong winds can turn these items into projectiles that may damage homes and cause injuries. CLEAN GUTTERS AND DOWNSPOUTS.

Leaves, twigs and debris can clog them and prevent rainwater from efficiently draining away from homes. Consult with a licensed contractor for proper installation. BUY FLOOD INSURANCE.

Most home insurance policies do not cover the expensive damage of hurricanerelated flooding. National Flood Insurance Program policies become effective 30 days after the date of purchase so homeowners should purchase one before it’s too late. Learn more at www.floodsmart.gov.

City of Hallandale Beach Awarded $20,000 to Establish New Pet-Friendly selected to receive a BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ grant Initiative City to engage residents in pet ownership education and petfriendly programming.

On June 8, 2018, the City of Hallandale Beach was selected by the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) and Mars Petcare to receive a $20,000 BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ grant to establish a Happy/Healthy Pets initiative. The grant was awarded to help cities promote, support and expand pet-friendly programs and policies in communities across the country. “Every life is precious, even those with four legs. Our residents consider their pets like their children, members of their family,” said Hallandale Beach Vice Mayor Michele Lazarow. “This grant will allow us to implement programs that make Hallandale Beach the pet friendliest city in South Florida. I would like to give special thanks to the U.S. Conference of Mayors and Mars Petcare for their generous contribution to our

community. I hope this program serves as a role model for other cities to adopt.” Vice Mayor Lazarow looks forward to working with the Hallandale Beach Police and Parks Departments and the Broward County Animal Care and Control to ensure that the grant helps Hallandale Beach pet owners be the most responsible guardians that they can. Through events, communications and improved infrastructure, the program will educate residents on the importance of spaying/neutering pets, pet adoption, microchipping and dog tagging, and anti-tethering laws, among other topics. The program will also aim to increase the city’s capacity to accommodate lost pets and reunite lost pets with their owners quickly, as well as reduce pet

homelessness and overpopulation in shelters. For more information about the BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ program, please visit BetterCitiesForPets. com and follow #HBWoof on social media for any updates on the intiative.
