Treasure Island considers car show

TREASURE ISLAND – A classic car show of major proportions could be coming to the beach in early March.

Treasure Island City commissioners moved forward Oct. 16 on a workshop proposal by American Legion Post 158 requesting approval to host the car show Saturday, March 9, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., behind the Bilmar Beach Resort. The event would benefit the Wounded Warriors organization.

Event committee chair Gregory Tony said between 100 and 300 vehicles are expected. He said the car show itself would end between 4 and 5 p.m., and all vehicles would be off the beach by Sunday morning.

City Manager Reid Silverboard explained that the cars would have to be off the beach Saturday night.

“The cars need to be off the beach that night,” he said. “It’s up to you (car show organizers) to make sure you‘re not serving people that are overly intoxicated. Obviously, we’ll have liability insurance but the cars need to be removed by that evening.”

Tony agreed.

The American Legion is expecting 40 food and non-food vendors, who would begin setting up Friday, March 8. Event organizers would secure the site overnight, Tony said.

Additional activities on Saturday will include a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle. The American Legion will operate a beer truck and sell barbecued food.

City staff will operate the parking and all revenue generated will go back to the city.

In other action, the commission:

• Moved forward on a resolution for Flags and Wags Inc. to conduct Pooches in the Park Parade Saturday, Dec. 1, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Treasure Island Park, One Park Place. Flags and Wags is a nonprofit organization that pairs rescue or shelter dogs with veterans suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome, depression and other mental or social disabilities.

• Moved forward on a resolution approving the purchase of a 2013 American LaFrance Condor read-load garbage truck for $216,216. The new truck would replace a 2001 Freightliner, which has over 16,500 engine hours. City staff spent more than $12,000 in parts and labor on the truck in the past year.
