Commander Tony Marchica – Incident Report – vagrants, please stop enabling them. They
go to outreach centers and then come to town looking for extra money. Call in real-time and

with that information. For non-threatening incidents, call police non-emergency (321)

Friday Night Frolic – Emma Kirkpatrick
Analysis – history of development/ music, partnership with stores & restaurants.
Changing the coupons to be given out by stores for $2.00 off specialty drinks at
participating bars/restaurants. Need more publicity. Get commitment to stay open &
mean it. Milpa had a good night – can we encourage people to sip as they stroll? Not
legally. How approach participating merchants? E-mail, call, personal contact.
Advertising store specials on the HCVMS website for this event. Other ideas –
passport, gift basket bonus. Frolic sounds more like a party than a shopping event.
Make sure participating stores/restaurants do their own publicity and specials.
Drinkers tend to spend money.


  • County branding promotions One Voice/One Brand. Live Big Space Coast launching
    in January, looking for input.
  • June 17th, pop up for Eva’s swimwear at Bobbi’s on June 17th

Adjourned 6:54 PM (7 volunteers 1-1/2 hours)
