Volume 1, Issue 6 

As we approach the end of the school year, schedules continue to stay busy with end-of-school-year activities and awards culminating in graduation for our high schools.  Similarly, programs are closing out their seasons which means championships, playoffs, and the beginning of new programs.  The 21st and 22nd are chock-full of activities with our Babe Ruth League Softball Tournament, WCFL League Championships, and Sunshine State Games Lacrosse State Championships.  Add in our first effort at partnering with Theater Arts Productions for their production of The Addams Family at the amphitheater (also on the 21st) and the Wellington Soccer Club's Latin Outreach Program hosting its Soccer Clinic on the 22nd and promotion of its outreach and scholarship program for program participants and we have a full weekend.  We are just about wrapped up with preparations for our visioning session and look forward to a productive time with Council and staff preparing for the coming year and beyond.  

Another event on the 21st is our first Kids To Parks Day event.  Kids to Parks Day is a national day of outdoor play celebrated annually on the third Saturday of May. The day connects kids and families with their local parks and public lands through park events that promote discovery and exploration in the great outdoors. The annual recognition is promulgated by the National Park Trust.  

Lastly, just a brief update on COVID-19 as it relates to our employees: We currently have 8 team members out due to testing positive for COVID-19, and 1 team member is out due to exposure or symptomatic and awaiting test results.  SO we are seeing an uptick in positivity among employees after seeing no COVID positive infections on our team since early February 2022.  We have not modified any operating guidelines as of yet due to the recent positivity we are seeing in our team members.  
The Village, in conjunction with Theatre Arts Production (TAP) will host The Addams Family, a musical comedy, on May 21st at 1:00 pm and 7:00 pm, and on May 22nd, at 11:00 am, at the Amphitheater. Tickets are available in advance on Eventbrite and the day of at the Amphitheater, prior to each performance.

Traditionally, leading up to the 7th day, a bamboo tree is decorated with colorful strips of paper called Tanzaku that wishes are written on and attached to the tree. On the 7th day, the wishes are taken down.  Beginning July 1st, the lobbies of the Wellington Community Center, Village Hall, and Village Park will feature a bamboo tree and Tanzaku (colorful sheets of paper) at the front desks that residents can post a wish on. A brief description of the meaning of the Tanabata will be displayed alongside the tree.

PUBLIC SAFETY

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office
 
National Police Week will be observed May 11-17.  This nationwide collaborative effort honors America’s law enforcement community and pays special attention to those officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. 
 
Community Policing and our JAM Deputy attended a career day at Elbridge Gale Elementary School.  Children had an opportunity to engage with our District 8 team and learn about the law enforcement profession.
 
Street Team, in conjunction with multiple federal agencies, have been busy with ongoing investigations in Wellington ranging from documented gang members to narcotics.  Investigations are on-going.
 
Operation Bent Metal 3 concluded on April 30, 2022 with tremendous success in mitigating and reducing traffic crashes.  The quantifiable amount of how many traffic crashes were prevented due to this operation is immeasurable.   Below is a year-over-year comparison of results delivered:    
  • Operation Broken Bottle, funded by an FDOT grant, continues in full force mitigating distracted and impaired driving in the community. Stay tuned for next reporting period results.
  • Operation Pulled Door Handle continues.  This operation has surveillance several homes located in the Village relating to narcotic sales.  Agents also conduct proactive patrols around local businesses and park in the Village.  Agents conducted 240 surveillance hours, 200 traffic stops, and made 25 arrests last week.  
Emergency Management
 
The Village of Wellington is preparing for our annual Emergency Management exercise.  On May 19, 2022 staff will exercise and review our Emergency Management plan for the Village and staff assignments.  In coordination with staff in GIS, our annual full-scale damage assessment exercise is scheduled for June 1 & 2, 2022.
 
Coordination efforts are under way with our emergency contracts.  Several contractors ranging from emergency potable water vendors, satellite communication, to debris management met with staff at the 2022 Governor’s Hurricane Conference.  The conference is the nation’s largest tropical cyclone conference in the Country. 
 
Christ Fellowship is partnering with the Village to provide a referral program for pre and post hurricane season services to residents in need.  We will be working through Code Compliance, Senior Services, and Community Service Division to identify those and provide a list to Christ Fellowship.  Residents in need can contact Jenifer Brito at jbrito@wellingtonfl.gov or 561-791-4000, ext. 2476.  Information will be posted as well in the senior publication the Golden Banner.
 
COVID-19 Testing & Trends
 
Last week, the Curative Village Hall location conducted 525 (down from 563 the week prior) tests and reported a 21% positivity rate (up from 18% the week prior).  12 patients were uninsured. 
 
The Curative South Shore site is steady averaging, 10-15 tests per day.  The Wellington Green Drive-Thru site conducted 23 (34 reported the week prior) tests last week and reported a positivity rate of 26.1%.
 
The CDC Covid Tracker showed Palm Beach County saw a case rate of 139 per 100,000 population (up from 122 last reporting period).  New COVID-19 admissions per 100,000 was 6.4 (up 3.5 from last reporting period) and the percent of staffed inpatient beds in use by patients with confirmed COVID-19 increased to 1.6% the same, up from 1.2%. Covid-19 Community transmission level continues to remain low in Palm Beach County. 
 
Community Resource Spotlight
 
The CROS Ministries mobile pantry will be coming back and serving the community after a month break.  The pantry will move to a new location near the Wellington Community Center.  The pantry will operate every Friday from 9:30-11:00am starting June 3, 2022. This service is free to the community and a photo ID is required.
 
Risk & Safety Spotlight 
 
The Village of Wellington was recognized by the Safety Council of Palm Beach County and received the ‘Excellence Award’ in both Workplace Safety and Vehicle Safety.  In addition, our worker compensation Experience Modification Rate (EMR) went from a .90 to a .81 this year which will equate to a further discount on our workers compensation insurance premium.  Great work by Village employees working to reduce and eliminate work place injuries.
  • PBC Fire has made a determination that all barns housing horses will be required to provide sprinkler systems. This only impacts future barns; it is not retroactive or apply to barns currently permitted or under construction.

  • Code Compliance received a Wellington Go App complaint concerning food trucks operating from the side of the road on 50th Street.  An inspection identified the location of the trucks as outside Wellington’s borders.   The matter was referred to Palm Beach County Code Enforcement and PBSO.    Palm Beach County Engineering updated staff advising county inspectors visited the trucks and provided education to the vendors.  At this time Palm Beach County is not requiring a roadside vendor license per a 2020 revision to FS 509.102 which preempts mobile vendor licensing to the State but is revising their ordinance. FS 509.102 does not prohibit a local government from regulating the operation of mobile vendors, i.e. permitted locations, length of time, etc. 
  •  A meeting was held with representatives for USPA to discuss the potential sale of IPC. The discussion was very basic as this time and was mostly related to understanding the current site plan approval and removal of the lighting and sand ring that was added to Polo Field 3.

  • Staff is working across departments to activate an electronic application and renewal process for Manure Hauler Permits.
