Hello Sunset Beach!
It has been a busy summer. The beach renourishment has been completed, and the beach looks good and wide The budget has passed and the millage rate will stay the same. There will be no increase in the garbage or recycle rate, but the sewer and stormwater rates
will increase slightly. The sewer rate increased because St Petersburg increased the rate to treat the sewage, and the stormwater increased so that we have money to fix the storm pipes.
We are all very pleased with the new beach! Stay tuned for opportunities for dune replanting. We will take all the sea oats we can, as we all know that the planted dune is our last line of defense.
There is a very interesting election coming up this November. I am not just speaking of Charlie 2.0 or marijuana, but Greenlight vs. No Tax For Tracks. Greenlight has many good points, and some not so good points, so make sure to cast an informed vote on this!
Until next time,
Commissioner District 4
Happy Autumnal Equinox Sunset Beach. Now that autumn is here we can look forward to one of the best seasons in one of the best parts of the country. Fall in Treasure Island means cooler days but with water temps remaining in the 80’s. It also is the time of year that the Civic Association begins events for the next year.
As the new president let me first thank all members of the association and the board for participating in a process that helps make Sunset Beach the unique community that it is. We really do have something special here.
Dates for events is the first order of business, and as you can see, not much has changed. I encourage all members to attend as many events as possible, but the Welcome Back Potluck is very important for several reasons. Renewing membership, new membership, networking, presenting new ideas- are most effectively achieved at the earliest opportunities.
We will have a new order of t-shirts and hoodies available. If you had trouble getting the size or color in the past, this is your chance to get the item of your choice. We will also have a new item, beverage coozies. They may sell out fast, so get yours now.
Another item I feel strongly about is Beach Clean-up. As you can see Steve Yost is spear-heading a dedicated campaign to maintain our recently re-nourished beach. I will be working with him to increase participation and awareness.
We also have a new event- The Floatilla. This summer’s inaugural soiree went “swimmingly” well. Thanks to all floaters (and non-floaters who showed up at the dock stops) who made the event a success. Special thanks to Dawn Fader / Patrick Fitzgerald and Rick Russ (a.k.a. Shaggy) for hosting the festive dock stops.
In closing I want to stress the importance of membership. Please encourage neighbors, friends and family to join / rejoin the association. Our events are getting more popular every year, we want to insure the residents of Sunset Beach reap the benefits of our special community spirit.
