The banners hanging throughout the Village on Ocean Boulevard are looking a lot cleaner, thanks to the Siesta Key Village Association.
Although he did not get his board’s approval ahead of time for the approximately $3,600 expense, President Russell Matthes told members Feb. 7 that he felt they would not object.
The banners desperately needed a good cleaning, he said. “(They) are getting quite old,” he added, which made a sprucing-up all the more necessary if they were to continue to look as good as possible.
No one objected to Matthes’ exercise of executive authority.
