Former ECHO Board Chairman Gary Libby said he was very concerned that the project has gone so far without any input from the public. He added that in 2013 the county agreed after a number of public meetings to bring projects to the advisory committee.
"I think you'd much rather move forward with everybody on your team than having a lot of unanswered questions," he said.

However, another part of the resolution allows for direct government expenditures.Former ECHO Board Chairman Gary Libby said he was very concerned that the project has gone so far without any input from the public. He added that in 2013 the county agreed after a number of public meetings to bring projects to the advisory committee."I think you'd much rather move forward with everybody on your team than having a lot of unanswered questions," he said.Daytona Beach resident Ken Strickland said he didn't know Volusia County could funnel the money away from the ECHO program, adding nobody in the neighborhood has been asked about the Boardwalk."It would be nice to get some answers before we start down the road with a horse and a wagon on this," he said.Before the discussion started, Councilman Pat Patterson made a motion to postpone the discussion until Aug. 20 so the full council would be present. Councilman Doug Daniels was absent on Thursday.But Patterson's motion ended in a 3-3 deadlock with Councilwoman Deb Denys and Councilman Fred Lowry in favor of delaying the discussion.To alleviate some concerns, Councilman Josh Wagner said he would approve the resolution with the understanding that the public would be involved in the process."This is not going to be an easy task, this is not something simple, but that's also what makes it special," he said. "I look at it as an addition to beach access."Councilwoman Joyce Cusack seconded Wagner's motion because she believes the Boardwalk is an "investment that is worth giving some teeth.""I believe that as good stewards of tax dollars we must be innovative," she said.

Gary Libby - Chair Members Present
...
Mr. Libby called the meeting to order and thanked everyone for attending. He then asked for a role call for attendance.
...
Mr. Libby then asked for the ECHO Staff to identify themselves and, after this was completed, he said that he would ask the attendees in the gallery to identify themselves at a later time.
...
Mr. Libby commented that they were. He continued saying that this would allow a small organization to come back to ECHO repeatedly for small amounts each time whereas a large organization could apply for the Exceptional Grant and receive the $3 million in one grant.
...
Mr. Libby commented that the question of limits on all applicant groups is what Mr. Sixma raises. Mr. Libby asked for public comment.
...
Ms. Seaman asked if changing the language from area footprint to total square footage was part of this motion to which Mr. Libby responded yes.
...
Mr. Libby asked for public comment. There was none. The vote to change the verbiage to reflect a maximum of $3 million of additional funds over the life of the ECHO program was passed unanimously.
Mr. Libby stated that "Do we allow them to have multiple exceptional grants and/or do we allow them to go over the $6 million level that we have applied to all of the other grantees?
...
Mr. Libby agreed saying that the question is if there should be limits placed on it because it is so large and can consume such a large percentage of the ECHO funds.
...
Mr. Libby suggested tabling the current discussion until they have considered the request that the match amounts be relaxed for the Trails program.
...
Mr. Libby asked if the board wanted to consider off-beach parking and the master trails together or did they want them separated.
...
Mr. Libby said the question is can the land value for the trails program be used as 100% of the match component of an ECHO grant.
...
Mr. Libby pointed out that the applicant cannot use ECHO funds or the construction of projects from ECHO funds to be used as match.
...
Mr. Libby said that what the Board is being asked is to allow the land, whether owned by the County, State, Federal, or even a private citizen, to be used as match up to 100% of the value of the land.
...
Mr. Libby responded saying that this might be the case but he suggest trying this for a year or two and if the program becomes excessive, they can change the plan to bring a more equitable solution for all. Mr. Libby said that the Board has waved the ownership of the land and now will wave cash match by using the value of the land for the entire match. Mr. Libby said that this is not a balanced approach as the Board is giving the trails program a big advantage over other applicants but this is an attempt to see how this will work.
...
Mr. Libby said yes.
...
Mr. Libby said that this is another area where the Board will have to change the rules for the trails program. He said that they still have to write a very competitive proposal as they will be competing for the funds with the other applicants.
...
Mr. Libby repeated what the motion on the floor was which is to allow the trails program to use the land controlled by the trails program, whether owned by the county or not, as match up to 100%.
...
Mr. Libby said that he did not see any other way to think about it.
...
Mr. Libby mentioned that they need to also look at the liability of allowing this as the applicant must understand that there is no guarantee for them to be awarded a grant by ECHO.
...
Mr. Libby said that the State began requiring unencumbered funds after a few of the applicants pleaded hardship and the potential loss of their half of the funds if the State did not award them the grant. Mr. Libby asked if there was any comment from the audience. There was none. Mr. Libby asked if anyone wanted to make a motion to change the current policy.
...
Mr. Libby repeated the motion that the language now describing PSC-1 be applied to PSC-5 and eliminate PSC-1. The vote on the motion was passed unanimously.
For the record, Mr. Libby asked the audience to identify themselves. The names and organizations are listed above. The meeting adjourned.

Gary Libby, Vice Chairman
...
Gary Libby asked if it was planned to make the resignation letter a part of the Board's record and if not, he moved that it be read into the record.

...
Gary Libby asked if there was an update on the 2003/2004 grants, in particular, one for the Tuscawilla Skateboard Park in Daytona Beach?
...
Gary Libby suggested that there should be a time certain period beyond the awarding of the grant for a decision to be made.
...
Gary Libby stated that unofficially, he was of the impression that the City of Daytona Beach had identified an alternative location and asked if would be up to the Board to review a revised application?
...
Gary Libby inquired of Frank Gummey if the County Council meeting was in fact a workshop?
...
Gary Libby inquired that, if an issue was voted on at an official County Council meeting, and then revisited at the next meeting, was it not a legal requirement to put the issue on the agenda?
...
Gary Libby asked Frank Gummey, who was at the June 3rd meeting, to share his perception of the change in the County Council position.
...
Gary Libby inquired if Frank Gummey had been involved in conversation with any members of the County Council about this change of heart?
...
Gary Libby inquired if staff had developed any guidelines?
...
Gary Libby inquired of Frank Gummey what the procedure would be for citizens who perceive this to be a taking of the $1M, to bring a redefinition of the ECHO funds back to the voters?
...
Gary Libby inquired what other options might be available?
...
Gary Libby asked if recall was an option?
...
Gary Libby moved to accept the language.
...
Gary Libby expressed the opinion that they were entering an area of relativity and would be back at it in the future when an organization had only nine years of incorporation in the County, indicating that it was bad public policy.
Judson Woods concurred with Mr. Libby's comments.
...
Gary Libby stated that it was bad public policy.
...
Gary Libby asked to comment before the details of the guide were discussed. Mr. Libby expressed the opinion that the County Council intended the set aside of the $1M for use exclusively for County projects and not for municipalities or for 501(c)(3)'s. He further explained that because the language addressing the trails had been added by the Board at the behest of the County to accommodate their trails program, he suggested that testimony from the municipalities should be heard by the Board to determine whether or not the current language addressed their needs.
...
Gary Libby stated that they did know that it was for the County's Master Trails program.
...
Gary Libby inquired if the Board should assume that the money would be used by all organizations wanting to build a trail?
...
Margaret Hodge referred back to Mr. Libby's comment concerning the language added to accommodate the County's trails program.
...
Gary Libby stated that he would like to move that any language addressing the County's trails program be stricken at such time it is determined that the $1M will be used only for County projects and keep the door open for municipalities and others that may come forward with a trails project.
...
Gary Libby recommended that the motion would be to strike language referencing the trails but keep the language for restoration.
...
Gary Libby stated that because of the set aside they had no option.
...
Gary Libby commented it was his firm understanding, that unless told otherwise by a knowledgeable source, how to use the $1M funding for the trails program would be an internal County staff matter.
...
Gary Libby stated that he was not in favor of incorporating the $1M set aside for the County's Trails Master Plan as part of the ECHO program and they should jettison it from the program.
...
Mr. Gummey further explained that Mr. Libby's position of removing it from the Committee's process and it be handled by Leisure Services was a legitimate approach and is one of many that could get to the Council's direction.
...
Gary Libby commented that he was not sure that there was anything the Board could do other than turn the money over to County staff.
...
Gary Libby made a motion to strike the trails related language, assuming that the set aside has a mechanism in place to spend it.
...
Gary Libby stated that he would like to assume that the $1M is gone and the Board should proceed knowing that they have the $3.5M. He noted his concern that there was not a County representative from the trails program at the meeting and that staff had no more information then the Board. He went on to say it was not the way to conduct the County's business. Mr. Libby called for the question to eliminate the language referring to the County's Master Trails Plan program.
...
Gary Libby seconded the motion
...
Gary Libby requested that Ms. Hodge find out if it was the intention of the County to bond the money.
...
Gary Libby agreed that the Committee should meet on that date.
