The road will be closed through 5 p.m., Friday, April 10.

Suggested detours are Overbrook Drive and Woodlawn Avenue. Motorists should expect delays and congestion in the area.

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH - After much discussion at their meeting March 24, city commissioners voted 3-2 to keep their monthly meeting time at 7 p.m.

Commissioner Terry Hamilton-Wollin brought up the issue. She asked that the time for the meeting be changed to 6 p.m. She suggested that there would not be much change in the number of people who attended the meetings and that city staff, who begin work at 7:30 a.m., would get a break by having the meeting an hour earlier.

City Manager Gregg Mims said the commissioners should not worry about how the staff felt on the matter.

BELLEAIR SHORE - Not long after joining the town of Belleair Shore Commission in 2013, Commissioner Jennifer Lindsay took on the role of code compliance officer.

The job was a first for tiny Belleair Shore. With only 58 homes and 100 residents, the town cannot afford staff members to perform basic services.

But several newly appointed commissioners and a new mayor saw a job that needed to be done, and Lindsay stepped in to fill it.

BELLEAIR - After years of talking and months of construction, the roundabout in the center of town is now open. It opened on Saturday, March 14, and by all accounts it should solve several ongoing problems at the intersection of Ponce De Leon Boulevard and Indian Rocks Road in Belleair.

The idea of building a roundabout was hatched roughly two years ago when several residents complained to the town commission that they feared for their children’s safety as they crossed Indian Rocks Road on their way to the recreation center. Eventually, the commission approved the idea and construction began late last year.

BELLEAIR - Most drivers will usually tell you they hate speed bumps; those raised pieces of roadway that jolt their vehicle if they are driving too fast. Yet the people of Osceola Road in Belleair like their speed bumps just fine and have asked the town commission to leave them alone.

The speed bumps, or traffic calming devices, as they are formally known, were installed on Osceola while Indian Rocks Road was closed because of construction of the new roundabout. Motorists discovered they could get around the construction by cutting through Osceola, which runs right in front of the Recreation Center where children abound.
