CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Commissioners voted unanimously April 22 to waive the policy on voting at work sessions and approved the appointment of Mark S. Woodard as acting county administrator.

Commissioner John Morroni was absent.

Woodard will take over the work of former county administrator Bob LaSala, who was terminated without cause on April 15.

“I’m glad he’s there,” said Commissioner Ken Welch. “He’s fully qualified.”

Woodard has worked for Pinellas County since 1988, most recently as an assistant county administrator. He began his stint at the county as a senior financial management analyst and then director of the Office of Management and Budget.

“I am gratified by the confidence shown to me by the Board of Commissioners,” Woodard said in a press release. “I have always been proud to serve the citizens of this county, and I look forward to working with the commissioners, staff and citizens as we continue to strengthen our community and enhance the quality of life we enjoy here in Pinellas County.”

Woodard had applied for the administrator’s position during a search that led to LaSala’s hiring after previous administrator Steve Spratt resigned. Woodard withdrew his application.

CLEARWATER - Pinellas County and Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority are making progress toward a final interlocal agreement to govern distribution of revenue from a 1 percent Transit Surtax.

Officials want an agreement in place prior to the Nov. 4 referendum on the proposed Greenlight Pinellas plan. If voters approve the use of a 1 percent transit tax in place of the current funding method of ad valorem taxes, the increased revenue would fund improvements to public transportation systems, including bus service and a future light-rail system.

CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Commissioners voted against staff’s recommendation April 15, after listening to Tierra Verde residents’ overwhelming support for a five-year fire service contract with Lealman.

County staff had proposed a two-year extension to accommodate potential changes coming to delivery of emergency medical services. Tierra Verde residents and Lealman Fire & Rescue preferred going with the five-year extension. The initial contract was signed Aug. 18, 2009.

TREASURE ISLAND - Reconstruction of a stairway leading to a beach area at the south end of Sunset Beach next to Blind Pass will soon get underway.

After a discussion on whether the responsibility lies with the city or residents of Mansions by the Sea, city leaders decided the best solution would be to rebuild the stairway at city expense on city property next to an existing city parking lot immediately north of the former stairway.

SEMINOLE - Artist Carrie Boucher always dreamed of owning a traveling art studio on a bus.

Always a bit of a nomad, in her mind she’d wander the country while creating her art. Each day she’d wake up in a new city; each day she’d sell her work on the side of the road to make ends meet.

These days, the project has become a reality. But the NOMAD Studio - that stands for Neighborhood-Oriented Mobile Art & Design Studio - has taken on a much larger scope and focuses more on the community’s needs than her own. Now, Boucher’s goal is to take her mobile art studio concept into community events throughout not just the Tampa Bay region, but the entire state, and to provide art projects and lessons for everyone, no matter the age or skill level, along the way.
