INDIAN SHORES – After two weeks in the hospital followed by two months of recuperation, Mayor Jim Lawrence returned to the dais at the May 13 meeting of the Indian Shores Town Council. Lawrence said his illness was a bout of pneumonia.

Vice Mayor Joan Herndon, who held the reins in Lawrence’s absence, was absent from the May meeting due to illness. At the beginning of the meeting Lawrence announced that Herndon has a debilitating case of the shingles.

Lawrence commended the Town Council for its diligence in his absence. “You guys got a lot done while I wasn’t here,” he said.

In other news

• The town received a letter from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regarding the National Flood Insurance Program community rating system field verification findings. The town is retaining its Class 6 NFIP rating. This means that Indian Shores property owners will continue to be granted a 20 percent discount on their flood insurance.

• Lawrence wrote a letter to Florida Gov. Rick Scott urging the governor to sign the $47.2 million bill for beach nourishment. Lawrence’s email was sent to Scott the day of the Town Council meeting. The bill is currently on the governor’s desk with a 15-day fuse on it for approval.

• The Pinellas County Library Cooperative sent the town of Indian Shores notification of the per capita amount required if Indian Shores participates as a member of the cooperative. The amount is $30.78 times the population of Indian Shores (1,423) that equals a total of $43,799.94. Lawrence advised the council that the current net cost to the town to use its own reading library, run by volunteers, is under $1,200 per year. That cost also includes allowing town residents to individually join the cooperative if they wish at a cost of $100 each with the town refunding $75 of the individual’s membership. The council elected to maintain their current library arrangement.
