INDIAN SHORES – The new Indian Shores Town Council that will be sworn in in March will be identical to the current one.

A resolution declaring Joan Herndon and William F. Smith re-elected council members in lieu of running unopposed was passed unanimously at the Jan. 8 meeting of the Town Council.

Herndon and Smith qualified as candidates to run for the two positions they currently hold. Because there were no challengers, the scheduled municipal election on March 12 was canceled.

A public hearing was held and the resolution passed to forego the municipal election and publicly assert that Herndon and Smith are re-elected for another three-year term respectively.

“We’ll have the (re-election) party in March,” said Mayor Jim Lawrence.

Building official to be honored

The town’s community room on the fourth floor of the Municipal Center will be named in memory of Lawrence Nayman, the town’s former building official who passed away last year. The suggestion was put forward by thje mayor, voted on by the Town Council and approved unanimously.

“Larry (Nayman) had his heart and soul in this building (Indian Shores Municipal Center),” said Smith.

“I can’t think of anything more appropriate,” said Councilor Carole Irelan.

Bridge, pilates classes slated

Requests from Jim Maloney to conduct bridge classes and Rita Moreau for pilates classes were approved by the Town Council. Maloney and Moreau submitted their credentials and prospective curriculum to the town.

Maloney, a bridge instructor, will conduct six consecutive bridge classes on Fridays, 1-3 p.m., starting Feb. 1. Preregistration by Jan. 25 is required and the cost is $60. Minimum class size is eight players.

Moreau will hold a pilates class on Mondays from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Contact Town Hall for details.

Interlocal agreement gets council OK

Indian Shores approved the renewal of its interlocal law enforcement sharing agreement with Pinellas County for another five years.

This agreement continues to allow Pinellas County and the local municipalities to share law enforcement data between agencies.
