Agenda item 7.8: Authorization for the City Attorney to work with the City claims administrator to defend the City in the matter of Amelia Tree Conservancy, Inc., Conserve Amelia Now, Inc., and Sierra Club v. the City of Fernandina Beach, Case No. 19002515GM, in the Division of Administrative Hearings for the State of Florida.
There is some chance that they won’t approve this and will simply let the developer’s attorney defend the case. This would save the City money, and has been done before. We have no position on this.
Note that the City Commission also has a workshop on resiliency related to the marina at 5:00, which may also be of interest.
