Consideration of a Potential Stormwater Fee Rate Increase. Council unanimously selected a tentative minimum per parcel fee of $5 and a tentative maximum per Equivalent Residential Unit fee of $52 and authorized the City Manager to work with the Brevard County Natural Resource Management Department to advertise the potential rate increase and to proceed towards future City Council consideration of a potential City of West Melbourne stormwater fee rate increase in fiscal year 2018-2019.
Additional School Resource Officers for the 2018-2019 School Year. Council unanimously accepted the partial funding proposal from the School Board of Brevard County and committed to assigning four West Melbourne Police Officers as School Resource Officers assigned to Central Middle School, Meadowlane Intermediate School, Meadowlane Primary School, and the West Melbourne Elementary School for Science for the 2018-2019 school year; authorized the Mayor to execute the agreement with the School Board; and authorized the advertisement of an ad valorem tax increase in fiscal year 2018-2019 to pay for the estimated 34.2% portion of the assigned officers’ salaries and benefits not provided by the School Board. This would bring the total number of authorized sworn officers in 2018-2019 to fifty. Council also asked staff to negotiate with the charter schools in the City for possible assignment of School Resource Officers. This would be brought back to Council for future consideration.
