Engineer Report:

Joe was hoping to have some sediment chemistry results for us, took a week longer. In-field work should be wrapping up this week, so far no surprises about what they’re seeing; seeing more sand that what Joe thought. Wouldn’t be surprised if 20-30% will be good sand. Once sediment test results are received we are then open to attend meetings/boards; the City’s waterway council (Lori Bauer is on the board); Core of engineers (Fishweir).

The City could be our 3rd dredge

We should have the project scope (total cost) by the end of August


Tamara: In the newspaper it was reported the Department adopted 2 separate plans to bring the Water Shed tributaries back to health. Miller’s Creek should have been in a restoration plan back in 2009. Tamara will scan and email the report to Board Members. In 2002 MC was on the dredging list however funds were appropriated for the Super Bowl and nothing after.

It was suggested that we create a list of the City Positions/Boards to consider reaching out to:

  • JAX waterways commission
  • EPB – Environment Protection Board
  • BMAP – Basin Management Action Plans – storm waters
  • FIND – Florida Inland Navigation District
  • USACE – Army Core of Engineers
  • Johns Water Management Distract
  • FDEP – Florida Department Environment Protection
  • John’s River keepers
  • City of JAX
  • JEA
  • Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration

Further suggestion that someone become the owner/expert for each City Position/Board. We will sit on this and await the August test results, then research who has funds and who does not. For the Fishweir project: 35% City of JAX, 65% Core of Engineers = homeowners 0/ZERO.


Savemillerscreek.org – we need to tag this to Mayfair and St. Nicholas websites

We (MCSD) doesn’t have the signed agreement for the church. Wayne Flowers never got it back to us. Sharon needs to sign, give to Scott/Joe.

Sharon has an invoice from Renee Pulido – for bills paid by his assistant out of Emed. Have Renee’s assistant provide a list of how much paid to Louis Longman, and we determine how much we’ve paid from MCSD.

Received bill for $3,333.67 to pay Joe – Tamara moved to approve payment; Scott seconded. (Name has changed to Wood Environmental & Infrastructure Solutions

Next Meeting: July 16, 2018
