Siesta Key Village Association President Russell Matthes reported recently to members that he is continuing to work on securing the installation of more modular newsracks on the Key.
Not only does the Village need at least one more of the structures, he said, but also he wanted to see some installed near the Siesta Public Beach and on the south end of the Key.
Referring to the clutter of newspaper boxes by the beach, he said, “That’s just ugly.”
Those boxes had been removed from the shopping center on the southwest corner of Stickney Point Road and U.S. 41, he added.
The Sarasota County Commission last year approved an ordinance calling for the use of the newsracks.
