Dear Friends:
 
Last evening the Administration announced that we will be holding a neighborhood meeting on Tuesday, August 4 at 7:00 PM with representatives from Michael Baker International to discuss road and drainage improvements for the area of 26th Street to 34th Street, West to Bay Avenue.  The meeting will be held at the Howard S. Stainton Senior Center located at the Community Center, 1735 Simpson Avenue.  The representatives from Michael Baker International will make a presentation on their findings and recommendations for this area. 
 
Last night, City Council also approved on first reading a bond ordinance that puts money in place for a north end beach replenishment project. This replenishment project is expected to start as early as fall 2015.  The bond ordinance also sets aside money for alley, drain pipe and bulkhead work and communications equipment.  These projects were all part of the capital plan approved by Council earlier this year. 
 
On the south end beach replenishment project the dredge “Liberty Island” returned last week but had some issues upon its return. It is now expected to be back on or around July 31st and resume operations immediately.
 
I hope everyone has a great weekend.
 
Warm regards,
 
Jay A. Gillian
Mayor
