County Employees Volunteer to Make Broward’s Beaches Beautiful
On September 15, the Natural Resources Planning and Management Division (NRPMD) coordinated Broward County’s participation in the Ocean Conservancy’s 27th annual International Coastal Cleanup. Judi Kladerman and Pat Quinn were zone co-captains for the event and organized 13 cleanup sites in coastal municipalities from Deerfield Beach to Hallandale Beach.
County employees who participated in the event as site captains were Katie Hendrickson (Parks and Recreation), Ruth Myles (Human Resources), Julie Ciucevich (Port Everglades), Ryan Goldman and Albert Cummings (Planning and Environmental Regulation), Carlton Smith (Solid Waste and Recycling), and Ken Banks, Lou Fisher, Barbara Powell, Vanessa Brignoni, David Damian, Bob Carew, Lorraine Bertone, Nancy Craig, and Dave Stout (NRPMD). Pat Patrick (Solid Waste and Recycling) and Manette Freas (Pollution Prevention, Remediation and Air Quality) spent the morning traveling between sites helping the captains and distributing additional supplies.
More than 2,400 volunteers collected 7,100 pounds of trash from Broward’s beaches. As in years past, the greatest type of debris by number was cigarettes/smoking items and a total of 23,000 butts were collected from the 13 sites. Some of the more unusual items included a toilet seat, snake head, bar stool, tiara and a set of car keys, much to the relief of the volunteer who lost them. A baby sea turtle and a fresh water turtle were also found by volunteers and released.

October 23 Was “Scott Danberg Day”
Broward County Mayor John E. Rodstrom, Jr., and Commissioner Lois Wexler present the proclamation to the Danberg family, Pamela, Scott and son, Jack.
Danberg participated in both the discus and shot put, but equally thrilling was that his teammates chose him to be the flag bearer and to lead the team in the opening ceremony. In the games, he placed seventh overall in the discus. The London event was his fifth Paralympic Games since 1988. The Danberg family resides in Cooper City.
Mike Serra, maintenance supervisor II, recently retired after 15 years with Solid Waste and Recycling Services. He started as a Solid Waste compliance agent in 1997, was promoted to special projects coordinator III followed by maintenance supervisor I. He oversaw operations at the Southwest Regional and Davie landfills, helping to ensure environmental compliance and their overall smooth daily functioning. Serra will be missed by everyone he worked with.
