I was invited to join the Tele-Town Hall by phone and was pleased with the discussion of the future of Fort Lauderdale! Issues addressed were bringing back the glory of Fort Lauderdale, regarding the Fort Lauderdale Swimming Hall of Fame, our roads, parks, better drainage, and slowing traffic down! Also discussed was the absence of lighting on Fort Lauderdale Beach favoring turtles over human safety, even after “turtle-approved” lighting was installed, yet it remains DARK on Fort Lauderdale Beach! Many people feel unsafe walking that section of the beach. Commissioner Roberts stated it was a fact that he believes there is a line that must be drawn where the safety of citizens is upheld, and we can promote the health of wildlife, but we must amintain the safety of the citizens!
Over 1000 participant citizens joined in on the call. It is the wave of the future. Polling questions were asked. Citizens questions and Citizen complaints were noted with the ability for follow-up conversations directly with the commissioner! This was truly and hour well invested!
Commissioner Bruce Roberts truly interacted with citizens and questions and maintained that he does not want to see Fort Lauderdale go into the red with its budget issues! That is of great importance to citizens!
