TUESDAY, JULY 19, 1960 <br />The Board of County Commissioners of Indian River County, met at the <br />Courthouse, Vero Beach, Florida in a regular meeting held at 9:00 o'clock <br />A.M., Tuesday, July 19, 1960. Present were Robert W. Graves, Chairman; <br />D. B. McCullers, Dr. B. Q. Waddell and Donald Macdonald. Absent was J. J. <br />P. Hamilton. Also present were Ed Schmucker, County Engineer; Sherman N. <br />Smith, Jr., Attorney; and Katherine Morrison, Deputy Clerk. <br />Joe Michaels was recognized by the Chair and stated that he was quite <br />concerned over the erosion of the beaches, especially in the North end of <br />the County. That he was particularly opposed to the placing of permanent <br />foundation close to the beach and also opposed to groins on the beach. He <br />stated he would like for the Board to study this problem and see if something <br />could be done with regard to allowing permanent foundations and groins near <br />the beach. The Board requested the County Attorney study this matter and <br />see whether or not we could regulate these items. <br />Mr. James Daniel of the Silver Line Motel appeared before the Board <br />and stated that the City of Vero Beach had passed an ordinance prohibiting <br />rate signs in front of motels, and requested that the Board adopt a similar <br />resolution. The County Attorney stated he did not know whether this Board <br />or the Planning and Zoning Board had the authority to pass sudh a resolution. <br />The Board requested the County Attorney look into the matter and see whether <br />or not we could legally adopt such a resolution. <br />A letter was read from Pasco Woods requesting payment of certain costs <br />as set forth in his letter for Frank Hamblin, for the reason they were expenses <br />expended by the defendant in a criminal case entitled State of Florida vs. <br />Frank Hamblin, and which said case was nolle prosequi. The County Attorney <br />stated he was not sure whether or not bail bond costs and Court Reporter <br />costs were allowable costs. After some discussion in the matter, Motion was <br />made by Commissioner Macdonald, seconded by Commissioner Waddell and carried, <br />that the costs should be assessed by the County Judge, after which said <br />costs as assessed by the Court would be paid by the Board. <br />
