The Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) is heading to the referendum zone.
The Longboat Key Town Commission voted 7-0 at its Monday, Dec. 2 regular meeting to approve an ordinance on first reading and public hearing that will allow voters to decide during the March 25 general municipal election whether to delete the requirement that the town maintain a permanent ZBA from its charter.
The commission began considering the possibility of asking voters to eliminate the requirement for the ZBA because of the board’s longstanding difficulty obtaining a quorum.
Also at its Dec. 2 regular meeting, the commission:
Approved on first reading:
• An ordinance amending the town’s flood control ordinances to comply with state and federal regulations;
• An ordinance that withdraws the town from receiving state tax revenues known as Chapter 185 monies because of the town’s intention of freezing its police pension plan Jan. 1, 2014.
• An ordinance establishing March 25, 2014, as the date for the town’s General Municipal Election.
Adopted on second reading and public hearing:
• An ordinance extending no-parking zones around Longboat Key Town Hall during early voting and election day.
