INDIAN SHORES - The new Indian Shores logo is popping up all over Indian Shores, so it comes as no surprise that the logo has now shown up as a mural at town hall.

Approved by the Town Council at the Aug. 9 meeting, the mural is attached to the wall behind the council dais, overlooking the room from a height of 7 feet. Roughly 4 square feet in area, the sign is made of aluminum, vinyl and laminate.

“That makes it easy to clean and keep clean,” said Starlyn Fikkert of Great Bay Signs Inc., which created and installed the logo at a cost of about $450. Fikkert was present at the meeting to answer questions about the project.

ST. PETE BEACH - Homeowners in St. Pete Beach will notice a small bump in their tax bills for 2017 but it won’t be because of a tax increase.

City commissioners voted unanimously July 26 to keep the millage rate at the current 3.15 mills next year. However, because property values escalated 7.7 percent over the past year in St. Pete Beach, tax bills will go up accordingly.

The rate is tentative and won’t become final until after public hearings on Sept. 6 and Sept. 20. Commissioners can vote to lower the rate, but can’t increase it.
