INDIAN ROCKS BEACH - The owners of P.J.’s Oyster Bar are blending the legacy of their old location into the look of their new restaurant at 415 Second St. in Indian Rocks Beach.

The artists are about 90 percent done with their painting on the exterior of the restaurant, which is now open. Renovations began about a year ago, said co-owner Steve Palmer.

“We are doing a tribute to the old P.J.’s building. Kind of paying homage to the 30 years over there.” Palmer said.

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH - City commissioners unanimously agreed to sell Indian Rocks Beach's sewer system to Pinellas County for just under $2 million.

They approved the sale following a special meeting on Aug. 12 to discuss the issue with residents. Three dozen of them showed up to have their say and not all were for the deal.

Among those against the proposal was resident Amber Burton.

“If the system as we have it now is funding itself and is a revenue stream for the city, why are we selling it?” she asked. “Why are we getting rid of it?”

BELLEAIR BLUFFS - Bids have been received and a winning bidder recommended for construction of the next phase of Belleair Bluff’s massive drainage and road reconstruction project. The bid package was presented to the city commission at their Aug. 11 workshop meeting.

A vote on selecting the winning bid will be taken at the Aug. 18 regular commission meeting. The six bids received for what had been seen as an $800,000 project had a wide variation, ranging from $787,000 to nearly $1 million.

BELLEAIR - On and off for weeks it has been warm and stuffy in the main auditorium of the Belleair Town Hall. Town Manager Micah Maxwell thinks he has the answer to the problem. Cut the auditorium in half or at least wall it off across the middle.

Maxwell revealed the cause of the problem at the town commission meeting on Aug. 5. The air conditioner was broken and would take thousands of dollars to repair.

BELLEAIR BEACH - Contracts for critical city services were renewed at the Aug. 4 Belleair Beach City Council meeting.

Law enforcement services for the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office will cost $434,347 over the coming fiscal year, an increase of 2.62 percent over the current contract. The increase of $11,000 is needed to provide a wage increase to members of the Sheriff’s Office, who have not had a raise in the past five years, according to a letter from Sheriff Bob Gualtieri.

Mayor Rob Baldwin asked Gualtieri about complaints related to problems on the beach. Gualtieri said beach patrolling was being stepped up, using a new Gator utility vehicle.
