The Longboat Key Town Commission will discuss how to validate its $16 beach bond referendum at its 1 p.m. regular meeting today.
The town of Longboat Key has no access to $16 million in funds that Key voters approved for a beach project last week because of an advertising error committed by the Town Clerk’s Office.
The commission must decide whether to hold another election or get the vote validated by a county judge.
Also at its regular workshop at Town Hall, 501 Bay Isles Road, the commission will:
Consider forwarding to its April 4 regular meeting for formal action:
• A resolution that provides a cost and fuel adjustment increase for the town’s Waste Management garbage service contract.
• An update regarding the Planning, Zoning and Building Department’s proposed fee schedule.
• A brief overview presentation of the Longboat Key Police Department presented by Police Chief Al Hogle.
• A brief overview presentation of the Longboat Key Fire Rescue Department present by Fire Chief Paul Dezzi.
• The possibility of forming an economic revitalization committee for the town.
• Establishing parameters for a future island-wide beach project.
• The cost and scope of a peer review that will be performed of the town’s Comprehensive Beach Management Plan.
• The proposed development for Bayfront Park and the required actions necessary to renovate and expand the park.
• The possibility of offering beer and wine for sale at the Longboat Key Public Tennis Center.
• The present status of the current year’s budget and preliminary information regarding the fiscal year 2011-12 budget.
• Modifications presented by the Longboat Key Planning and Zoning Board, regarding a section of the town code that deals with walls, fences, hedges and berms.
• The possibility of removing some state “No Parking” signs in the Gulf of Mexico Drive right-of-way.
• Key residents and commissioners to committees named in the town code or as required by outside agencies.

- The issue regarding offering beer and wine for sale at the Longboat Key Public Tennis Center is a winner. This has been something I have been proposing to the staff for many years. I think it's a great way to socialize with fellow tennis players similar to the cafe at the Key Club and a great way to enhance revenues. The Tennis Center is a beautiful facility and goes begging for that extra something that would enhance camaraderie.
