The Protect Rio Vista program utilizes your subscription funds to hire off-duty Fort Lauderdale police officers to patrol in the neighborhood.  The officers are in uniform when on duty and have full authority to take official action action should a crime take place while on patrol.  The officers patrol in a marked car leased by the civic association and will be dispatched by FLPD for any 911 call recieved from the neighborhood.  Members also recieve a cell phone number by which they may contact the patrol officers directly while they are on duty.  Members also recieve the opportunity to request a vacation check of their home when they are out of town.

“The Fourth District Court of Appeal issued the attached Order denying Aids Healthcare Foundation’s (AHF) Petition for Writ of Certiorari on second tier review. The Court opined that AHF failed to show that the circuit court applied the wrong law or departed from the essential requirements of law in denying the first-tier certiorari petition, and that AHF’s petition essentially only challenged the City’s factual determination, which the appellate court is not permitted to consider or evaluate on second-tier review. This is effectively the end of AHF’s ability to challenge the City and the Board of Adjustment’s decisions. Furthermore, the U.S. District Court had previously ruled that if the state court denied AHF’s petition for writ of certiorari, AHF’s ADA and FHA claims could NOT proceed. The City will advise the U.S. District Court of the state court’s ruling and advise of any subsequent action or dismissal in response.”
