Sarasota County commissioners will discuss what to do with 10,000 cubic feet of soil from a new retention pond on Beach Road during a March 19 meeting.
County staff recommends leaving the dirt at the site of the drainage improvement project set for completion the end of 2013. The county can save $378,000 by stockpiling the fill, and using it for the Siesta Key public beach project.
If commissioners pick that alternative, the soil will be stacked in 4-foot piles behind a plant buffer and a fence.
Agenda highlights include:
• A $465,000 contract for the Red Bug Slough restoration
• A $654,000 contract for Celery Fields improvements
• Bus shelter and bicycle rack installation; cost of $130,000
