+ Commission savors the sunshine
The weather on Longboat Key was cloudy on the evening of Wednesday, Dec. 11, but the Longboat Key Town Commission stayed in the sunshine, as far as the Longboat Observer could tell.
Earlier that day, town staff was prepping for a marathon workshop. With an agenda that included hot-button issues such as the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort, they anticipated the meeting would stretch into the evening and require a dinner break.
But, with recent allegations of Sunshine Law violations reported in the Longboat Observer relating to changes to the Urban Land Institute committee, Town Manager Dave Bullock invited the press to feast on Publix subs alongside the commission to confirm commissioners were staying in the sunshine.
One topic of conversation throughout the meal: the weather.
