Town of North Redington Beach News
February 12, 2010
The town commission completed action on three pieces of legislation at its regular meeting on February 11.
Most important to town residents is the extension of the current trash/recycling contract with Waste Services Inc. The commission accepted the offer of the company to extend the contract to 2013 with a guarantee that costs will be held at current levels. The pact was originally scheduled to end in April this year.
Also passed was an ordinance banning overnight parking on Gulf Boulevard of trucks/vans over seven feet high.
Finally, the commission completed an update to the Comprehensive Plan that brings procedures for resolving intergovernmental disputes in line with new state law.
Dates To Remember
February 13. Floridians opposed to recent proposals to allow drilling in state waters are gathering in a protest demonstration called Hands Across The Sand at beach locations on both coasts. This show of solidarity among opponents will probably be done by the time this is posted, but those concerned about the threat of oil spills and visual pollution are encouraged to continue letting their representatives know how they stand. The town has already taken an official position against the proposals, as have countless others.
February 27. This last Saturday of the month will feature the third annual Food for Thought gala to benefit the Gulf Beaches Library. The event is attracting over 40 food vendors. There will also be wine and beer available. Tickets are $20 a person, which includes one beverage and all you can eat. Site is the Madeira Beach municipal play area behind the library and the Madeira town hall.
March 3. Last day to request mail ballots from the Supervisor of Elections. Number to call is (727) 464-6788.
March 9. Election Day. There is one contest on the North Redington Beach ballot. Curtis Blocker, commissioner for Seat 4 since 2005, is seeking reelection. He is opposed by John Messmore, a local businessman. Voting will be at the meeting room next to the town’s garage across the parking lot from Town Hall. Mail ballots must be in the Supervisor’s hands by this date to be counted.
