  • Public comments get contentious when Nolan and former city employee clash

    first_img Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Public comments at the Apopka City Council meetings have typically been one-sided events, with the speaker making their statement and the mayor saying “thank you” as they leave the microphone a couple of minutes later. Occasionally there is an interaction between the speaker and the Council but rarely is there debate, disagreement or any sort of controversy.But at Wednesday night’s City Council meeting, that trend changed amidst the tension that has engaged Apopka for the past several months.Apopka City Commissioner Alice NolanMariah McCullough, a vocal critic of this administration on many social media sites, was the second speaker during public comments. McCullough, a lifetime resident of Apopka and the city’s former recreation director, took exception to the events relating to the investigation of the Apopka Fire Department and to the events related to its former Chief Chuck Carnesale.She read from a prepared 529-word statement which was critical of the administration, City Attorney Joseph Byrd, and Commissioner Alice Nolan. “Good evening, Mayor and Commissioners. I come before you tonight to express my concerns regarding the handling of the Fire Department investigation, the admonishments of Commissioner Becker during the last Council meeting, and commissioner involvement in Fire Department operations.It became clear while reviewing the Apopka Fire Department investigation documents, that the City Attorney continuously asked leading questions of witnesses during interviews; appeared to give testimony with his own questions; left assertions made by witnesses unchecked, essentially accepting all accusations as true; and failed to follow up with or interview involved parties explicitly named by witnesses. The city attorney revealed a clear bias in the execution of his “investigation” towards the outcome the administration was seeking. This was further made clear during last week’s Council meeting when Commissioner Becker questioned the investigation and was shut down and publicly admonished by the city attorney for referencing the investigation findings.Commissioner Becker was elected by Apopka residents, including myself, to speak and make decisions on our behalf. It is offensive and reprehensible for the city attorney to publicly admonish and interrupt Commissioner Becker because he referenced a PUBLIC document that was relevant and critical to the decision he was being asked to make. According to the section of the Government in the Sunshine manual referencing Attorney Notes and the caselaw noted therein, “documents prepared to communicate, perpetuate or formalize knowledge constitute public records and are therefore subject to disclosure in the absence of statutory exemption.” Once the city attorney provided a copy of the report to the Commissioners—if not sooner—it became public record and therefore wholly appropriate for Commissioner Becker to reference.It’s suspicious and does not look good that the report was provided to the council just prior to the meeting where they were being asked to ratify the Mayor’s recommendation for Chief, especially considering all allegations were either inconclusive or unfounded. I appreciate Commissioner Becker’s initiative and wherewithal to request for a delay in the vote and I encourage all commissioners to exercise the same good judgment and initiative if necessary, in the future. It has been publicly reported, well-documented, admitted, and confirmed that a sitting commissioner gave orders to and dictated the removal of Chief Carnesale. This is in direct violation of Section 2.06 of the City Charter. The citizens of Apopka are owed an explanation as to why this commissioner felt it was appropriate or legal to become involved in the operations of the fire department; what specific competencies, certifications, education or experience this Commissioner possesses to qualify them to assess and dictate the operations and leadership appointments of an ISO-1 Fire Department; and who, specifically, was this commissioner collaborating with on a staff-level or otherwise, referenced in communications as “we” and “us.” Clearly, this commissioner did not seek out on a rogue mission to transform fire department leadership. Finally, Section 2.04(d) of the City charter entrusts enforcement of the provisions of the Charter to the Mayor. Mr. Mayor, until you act, the citizens of Apopka are left to wonder why nothing is being done. The longer it takes you to act, the longer the public will be left to draw its own conclusions.Thank you.”McCullough turned to walk back to her seat when Nolan chose to respond. “I’m very vocal,” Nolan said. “I did say, to who I was supposed to report to, how I felt about things. I say how I feel about a lot of things. Some things are ‘that’s not the direction we are going’ and other things are ‘we’re looking into that’, but yes I was very vocal. I did not do any direction. I did not violate any laws. I do not go to the mayor’s office and say ‘you have to hire this person’. I did not go to the fire chief and tell him he had to be fired. I did not do any of that. I expressed my opinion. I expressed my opinion to citizens who directly asked me, and I’m not going to lie… so yes I did.”Nolan was referring to an incident in which she made candid remarks about Carnesale, and Nelson while using facebook messenger to communicate privately among friends. The comments were later released during a public records request.By the time Nolan finished, McCullough had returned to the microphone and responded directly to Nolan. “From your own words and communication that’s been documented…it is available from the public record… you did state that you gave direction to Chief Carnesale, therefore you did violate the charter. In your own words you said that. So now you’re saying you’re not, but in your own words you did, so excuse me if I don’t believe what you’re telling me right now.” “That’s fair. That’s fair,” said Nolan. “I just wanted to let you know how it went and how things can come out.” “Well, you can understand how it sounds,” said McCullough. If you have communication… going back and talking about ‘we were wanting him out’, you’re having communication saying ‘we’ and ‘us’ gave him this opportunity… ‘we’ and ‘us’ had these conversations with people in the fire department. You can see how this looks. It puts a bad view on the whole matter. And I know we’re going to ratify someone today (for fire chief) and I have nothing whatsoever against this individual, but it’s this entire process that was followed that I have an issue with.”“And I appreciate you,” said Nolan. “It takes a lot of courage to come up here, and I want to say thank you, and I do appreciate that.” Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The Anatomy of Fear Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

All show the film reel icon meaning the audio has been posted, yet where the frame of the city hall photo is normally, with the arrow to start the audio, the photo is blank within. I do not get it. I am getting all other photos and videos on this browser. Does the city not want the citizens to hear this audio, or is it something I do not understand as to the computer?

  • CNET on online fundraising

    “Charities and nonprofit organizations are heading online, hoping to ride the e-commerce wave to tap into potential donors”, reports CNET. “Charities and nonprofit organizations are heading online, hoping to ride the e-commerce wave to tap into potential donors”, reports CNET. Such a revelation might not be “news” in the sense of novelty if you’ve been reading UK Fundraising for the past five years. Nevertheless the coverage by CNET indicates that even in the year 2000 a charity trying to raise funds online is considered newsworthy by an international news network.

  • Charities focused on local causes in decline across London, research suggests

    first_img While charity numbers in London are rising overall, the majority of boroughs are seeing a decline in those focused on local causes, according to research by Centre for London.Centre for London research analysed Charity Commission data based on charities’ ‘area of benefit’ and suggests that charities focused on London causes plateaued during the five years to 2015. The Centre for London found that the capital has 1.4 locally based charities per 1000 population, compared to 1.9 per 1000 for England as a whole.It also found that while London’s population grew 7.5 per cent between 2009/10 and 2014/15, and the number of charities overall rose 7%, those focused on London causes plateaued during the five years to 2015. While some inner-London boroughs, including Hackney and Tower Hamlets, saw increases in local charities, most saw a fall. This decline has been seen in inner London boroughs, including Westminster (-4%) and Southwark (-4%), but is also seen in outer London, including in Croydon (-7%), Kingston (-5%), Waltham Forest (-4%) and Hounslow (-4%).The research also shows that local charities are unevenly spread across the city. It point to the City of London as having a particularly large number of London-focused charities, while other inner London boroughs such as Camden, Hackney, Islington and Westminster all have more than two London or locally focused charities per 1000 population. Barking and Dagenham, Bexley, Brent, Hounslow and Newham however all have less than one local charity per 1000 residents – below the average in England, and despite poverty levels growing in outer London boroughs.Ben Rogers, Director at Centre for London, said: “London is sometimes presented, as a ‘hotspot’ for charitable activity, in contrast to ‘coldspots’ or ‘charity deserts’ in other parts of the country. But our analysis shows that while there is some truth in this distinction, it’s not sufficiently sensitive to the difference between where charities are based and where they operate. Parts of the city, and the people who live in it, are in desperate need of support. Yet the number of locally focused organisations seems to be in decline.”The report forms the first publication in a strategic review that Centre for London is undertaking into trends in giving and how to improve how London gives. The final report is scheduled for publication 3 September, 2018.

The news came Friday in an email from Chancellor Victor Boschini to the TCU community. The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic meltdown have left universities across the country cutting spending to offset lost revenue. During the summer, TCU reduced its operating budget for this year by $57 million from $551.5 million to $493.8 million. Another round of cuts is underway. Boschini wrote that before the pandemic emerged, the university was working to become more affordable by increasing the endowment and optimizing the budget. “The board conveys its profound gratitude to the entire TCU community for working together to navigate the way through this unprecedented time in our history to ensure that TCU will not just remain sustainable, but continue to flourish,” wrote Mark Johnson, the chairman of the board, in a resolution included in the email. In addition to the tuition freeze, TCU is in the process of reducing its spending by 12%. Read more: Chancellor talks tuition rate, budget cuts at faculty town hall Provost Teresa Dahlberg said in a Faculty Senate meeting Oct. 29 that this year’s budget for academic affairs is about $171.2 million, so a 12% reduction is about $20.5 million. The savings from these cuts will go toward the permanent allocation of $65 million to financial aid.Academic deans had to turn in the first draft of their four-year plan to the provost’s office by Nov. 6. The four-year plan details each college’s budget for the current and the next three fiscal years. But not all departments within academic affairs are being asked for equivalent reductions. For example, the AddRan College of Liberal Arts and the School of Interdisciplinary Studies, which Dahlberg said are “less well-resourced than other units,” are only expected to cut 9% of their budgets. The Mary Couts Burnett Library, on the other hand, is being asked to reduce its budget by 16%.An additional reduction of about $1 million, less than 1% from across academic affairs, will be used to fund the VITAE Target of Opportunity Hiring program to hire members of underrepresented groups to tenure and tenure-track positions. Dahlberg also talked about teaching modalities for the spring. Next semester, 54% of classes will be taught in person, an 8 percentage point increase from this semester.Throughout the semester, administration officials and students appealed to faculty to teach more classes in person. In an email sent in October, Dahlberg encouraged faculty to teach in person “as much as possible.” And the Student Government Association passed a referendum in September to support more in-person classes. This came after a survey done by the Office of Quality Enhancement, in which 72.5% of undergraduate student respondents said their online class experience was very poor, poor or fair.

  • A race against death for Nasrin Sotoudeh

    first_img March 18, 2021 Find out more A race against death for Nasrin SotoudehNasrin Sotoudeh is guilty three times over in the mullah-led regime’s eyes. Guilty of being a woman of conviction. Guilty of being a human rights lawyer. And guilty of daring to speak out against the regime.Courageous and uncompromising, she has always been ready to defend intellectuals, journalists, bloggers, women’s rights activists and those who represent ethnic or religious minorities. She took up the cause of all those who were the victims of repression for protesting after the June 2009 election. One of the pillars of the Centre for Human Rights Defenders, she again risked her freedom when the regime tried to target the family and associates of fellow human rights lawyer Shirin Ebadi.Nasrin Sotoudeh has been detained in Tehran’s terrible Evin prison since 5 September. Held in solitary confinement, repeatedly denied visits, constantly watched by five guards, she has been defying her humiliation by staging hunger strikes.Her struggle is our struggle. The international community and its citizens must react. The Iranian regime is trying to crush a voice that it fears. Its attempt to reduce Nasrin Sotoudeh to silence obliges us to take up the challenge of a race against death. Freedom must triumph. No repression, no imprisonment can hold back a young, emerging civil society, of which Nasrin Sotoudeh is a spokesperson. Let us join our voices with hers. Nasrin Sotoudeh must live and be free.

  • Pilot projects to set the tone for reviving Georgian Limerick

    first_imgWhatsApp Housing units were proposed for Limerick Opera Centre site €18 million development breathes new life into Limerick city centre TAGSregeneration Previous articleThefts of catalytic converters on the rise #crimepreventionNext article#WeekendListen – Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 30 | The Proust Questionnaire Staff Reporter Print Regeneration Online Conference takes place this week Limerick City and County Council’s Head of Urban Innovation Rosie Webb with Limerick Twenty Thirty Project Manager Sinead Ryan. Photo: Arthur Ellis.TWO demonstration projects will help create a model for transforming buildings in Limerick’s Georgian Quarter into modern living spaces.Working in collaboration with Limerick City and County Council’s Urban Innovation Department, Limerick Twenty Thirty will project manage the two ‘pathfinder projects’ for the local authority as a roadmap for new residential living in the city’s historic Georgian core.Funding has been provided under the Urban Regeneration Development Fund (URDF) for the redevelopment of 58, O’Connell Street and 33/34, Thomas Street into imaginative, predominantly living spaces. Over the course of a two-year programme, they will be transformed from largely disused spaces into exemplars of best practice in adaptive reuse of historic buildings.The programme will focus on marrying the special architectural heritage of the properties with modern living needs but with a strong focus on sustainability. The programme will also devise new investment models to demonstrate and deliver affordable living in the city centre.58, O’Connell Street is a four-storey over basement Georgian terraced townhouse and rear garden lot on the city’s main thoroughfare. The core building and a newer three-storey extension to the rear was home to the Limerick City Library from the 1930s-1990s.The property currently houses ‘Narrative 4’, a not-for-profit social enterprise that will continue to be accommodated in the Georgian townhouse. The upper floors of the historic building are currently disused, as is the three-storey rear extension.33, Thomas Street is a four-storey over basement Georgian terraced townhouse adjacent to a two-storey contemporary building which was the former site of a Fire Station.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Both properties, which comprise approximately 965 m2, are fully vacant but in a state of poor repair.The programme was welcomed by Mayor Michael Collins, who said the two projects could pave the way for how significant swathes of Georgian Limerick could be transformed into vibrant living spaces and attract more people back to live in the city centre.“Georgian Limerick has the potential to be a huge asset. If we maximise this opportunity for Limerick and it’s rolled out across the city centre, it will become one of the most sought-after urban spaces to live in Ireland. That’s the level of opportunity here.”Said Rosie Webb, Head of Urban Innovation in Limerick City and County Council: “This is a really exciting programme. We are on the cusp of something very special in Limerick as we begin re-imagining and adapting our city centre living spaces and, not least, our Georgian properties.“At a practical level, with these two projects we will be putting in place a significant stock of new accommodation in the city centre so that’s a huge positive in its own right.“However, this programme goes well beyond that in terms of significance. Limerick has the second largest Georgian footprint in Ireland after Dublin and we have failed to realise its potential over the years.“These projects will act as a model for revitalising this wonderful and hugely important stock of Georgian properties. The Georgian neighbourhood has the potential to be Limerick’s prime location for living and working and we are creating that opportunity now.”Limerick Twenty Thirty chief executive David Conway said they were excited to be project managing the redevelopment of the two sites.“We will be transforming these historic buildings into something fit for purpose for modern living. These will be very exciting living spaces that embrace city living in an economically inclusive and sustainable way. They are going to help breathe new life back into the core of the city.”Limerick Twenty Thirty Project manager Sinead Ryan said the city’s Georgian architecture is known and appreciated the world over.“With advancements around sustainability in building, there’s an opportunity to look at new ways of adapting historic properties for modern living. We are in the very early stages of the process but the residents who get the keys to these properties on completion will be stepping into exciting and unique living spaces.”Limerick Twenty Thirty has recently concluded the procurement process for an Architect led Integrated Design Team with the appointment of Paul Keogh Architects. Planning will be sought in the mid-2021 and construction is expected to start shortly afterwards.
