<br />Regarding the matter of the Florida East Coast Railway Company urging the
<br />County to proceed with the construction of fences and barriers between the railway right-of-
<br />way and the widening -of U. S. 91 in the vicinity of Vero Beach, to fulfill provisions of the
<br />agreement between the County and the Railroad, entered into on April 1, 1952, the railroad
<br />committee consisting of Allison Warren, Aubrey Waddell, Attorney Smith and Road & Bridge
<br />Superintendent Carter, after having analysdd the cost on all bids submitted on materials
<br />to do this work and after further checking into the matters recommended to the Board that it
<br />would be much cheaper and less troublesome for the County if the Railroad Company would accept
<br />$5,000.00 in full settlement of the agreement between the two. The Board though this was
<br />a good suggestion and instructed Attorney Smith to go with Charles C. Jewett, City Manager
<br />to contact J. 11. Martin, Trustee, df the Florida East Coast Railway Company and make known
<br />to him the County's offer.
<br />Commissioner Warren brought up the Blue Cupress Lake fishing area problems
<br />which were discussed, and the Board agreed to continue to work to�:improve:;these existing
<br />situations and conditions as soon as funds are available.
<br />The possibilities of establishing a county home for the aged, for dependent
<br />children, and for juvenile delinquents were discussed by the Board of County -Commissioners.
<br />Juvenile Judge Otis M. Cobb and Mrs. Anne Christensen, county welfare worker, gave the board
<br />their opinions on the need for such a home. According to their reasons, the home could:
<br />1. Be used to house aged or infirm Persons who are living on very small pensions or
<br />who have no incomes. Either group would fall into the welfare class.
<br />2. Be used as a temporary place to house dependent children until foster homes were
<br />found for them.
<br />3. Be used to quarter juvenile delinquents until their cases were disposed of, or until
<br />they were sent to industrial schools. At present the county jail must be used.
<br />Chairman, W. C. Graves, Jr., appointed a committee to investigate the possibilities are
<br />problems of establishing a county home composed of himself, County Attorney Sherman N. Smith,
<br />Jr., as chairman, Commissioner Allison Marren and Mrs. Anne Christensen.
