4B THE PALM BEACH POST , WEDNESDAY, MAY 31, 2000 Commission could set less drastic fee BOYNTON From IB Black said he also wants to reevaluate the utility departments role within the city. "If he was on our team, he would have told us everything about it," Black said of Sugerman. "He was very selective and left us In the dark, and that's not fair. V "It's like the utilities department vs. the rest of the world If he doesn't want to be part of this hew team, then maybe Mr. $ugerman should find another am.'' t In 1998, Sugerman was given 1 16 percent pay increase and new fluties: coordinating major projects in the utilities and public works departments and overseeing economic development ! rejects. ! Sugerman, who makes 93,600 a year and has worked for the city since late 1994, is out of the office until later this week and fcould not be reached. Utilities Director John Guidry did not re turn phone calls. Bressner said Tuesday he could not comment on Suger-man's actions because he was not manager when the fee was first proposed. But, he added, the utility department has plans for some of the reserve money: $19 million for water and waste-water treatment improvements within the next few years. And the $30 million in storm-water improvements, including $3.6 million in drainage fixes planned for Industrial Avenue and the Costa Bella neighborhood, are long overdue, he said. "We've got to do this and get over the hump," Vice Mayor Ronald Weiland said, adding he's "not concerned" that Sugerman did not mention the reserve money. "Everybody can adjust to this." Bressner said, pointing out commissioners could decide June 6 to set a less drastic fee increase, closer to that of Delray Beach's $4.50 a month or West S A Effect of a storm-water fee hike If Boynton Beach city commissioners Tuesday decide to raise monthly storm-water fees from $1 to $6, businesses, churches, schools, hospitals, malls and other non-residential customers will feel the biggest impact. That's because while residents pay a flat monthly fee, fees for businesses are based on the amount of "hard surface" their buildings occupy. A 25,000-square-foot business that now pays $1 per month for each 1,937 square feet would go from paying $155 per year to $930 a year. Here's a look at how a few of the city's biggest businesses and churches would be affected: Current fee Proposeaiee $4,920 $29,520 $8,208 $49,248 $4,500 ' $27,000 $2,652 $15,912 $960 $5,760 Bethesda Memorial Hospital Motorola Home Depot Macy's St Mark Catholic Church Sources: Boynton Beach Chamber of Commerce, Boynton Beach Utilities Department Palm Tran may have to hike fares Palm Beach's $3.40. But Black said: "The commission now looks foolisb' and is vulnerable to the business community's backlash, expected to be demonstrated by a large turnout at Tuesday's meeting. "Now it looks like the whole city is trying to hide something, and that's not the case," Black said. "So now we have to make amends to our business community." Mctim says he lost feeling in legs after 2 hours Anr SETTLEMENT 'From IB . moved his head while taking X-rays and inserting a tube in his throat. He said he lost feeling in his legs two hours after entenng the hospital.

The offer was endorsed by lawyer Kenneth Rubin, appointed by the court to represent Kimmick's interests. Area deaths BUDGET From IB 1 In the meantime, Colbath :a nntv rnmmission shouldn't reject the requests for new court staff. "That would be more of an inconvenience for taxpayers," he said. Palm Beach County estimates it would save about $17 million yearly of the total $60 million it pays to run the courts. But the commissioners weren't entirely tight-fisted Tuesday. They said they may want the sheriffs office to spend more than it requested in order to hire additional deputies. Of the 68 new people the sheriff wanted to hire, none were for road patrol. Among the requested additions would be 33 jail guards, 18 administrative workers and eight detectives. Billy Riggs, administration director for the sheriffs office, said the guards are needed because the jails are understaffed. He said the office could use the new deputies, though they're not urgent because crime is down by 17 percent. Commissioners Aaronson and Tony Masilotti said more patrol officers are needed for the growing county. But the financial generosity ended when it came to Palm Tran, the county's ailing bus system. To balance its budget, Palm Tran officials had asked for $3.2 million in additional property tax money and said it would cut back service. "I'm not willing to to use more tax dollars unless it's a last resort," said Masilotti. "I don't want to tell people we're putting money into buses instead of police and paramedics." Without the additional cash, Palm Tran will have to make steep cuts: Eliminating Sunday service; cutting eight routes countywide; increasing fares; and scaling back the SpecTran van program for the disabled. The cuts would come at a time when more people are actually using county buses. Ridership is up 20 percent this year. Commissioners also suggested hitting up city governments for more Palm Tran money and cutting service in cities that don't cough up the cash. But Palm Tran Executive Director Perry Maull doubted that cities would embrace the idea. "I think the cities will be quick to say Thanks but no thanks,' " he said. Maull will come up with options for balancing Palm Trail's budget without the added cash, and present them at the county s July 5 budget hearing. "We want to keep the patient " Macilntti said. "Sometimes auw, you have to cut off a toe to save the patient." . 1 Palm Beach County Baker, Theo D. "Ted," 56, of Jupiter. Eustis-Cornell Funeral Home, Marblehead, Mass. Funeral in Marblehead.
