People of all ages gather May 16 to take part in Hands Across the Sand/Land at the Pinellas County park at 17th and 18th avenues in Indian Rocks Beach.
BELLEAIR - The bulk of renovations at Belleair Town Hall will begin in the next two weeks with the work expected to be finished in two months.

City commissioners May 19 authorized Town Manager Micah Maxwell approve all spending up to $130,000 on the Town Hall renovations. The commission had approved a budget of $130,000 for the project as part of the fiscal year 2014-2015 budget, but the city manager’s spending limit on project items was $20,000.

The request is “so we don’t have to keep on coming back to the commission every time we have an item that’s over $20,000. I’m sure there will be some of those items. Air conditioning is one that comes first to mind, and we expect to get that rolling as soon as we can,” Maxwell said.

David said the building is now nearly complete and would be finished by the end of June. A concessionaire must be hired and other operational functions taken care of before the doors can be opened to the public, he said.

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH - What began as a series of changes to clean up the language in the city of Indian Rocks Beach’s noise and alcohol establishment ordinances turned into an evening long discussion over what does or does not constitute too much noise and who is qualified to decide that.

The debate at the commission meeting on May 12 began with Heather Boles, owner of the Sand Bar and Grill on Gulf Boulevard. Her establishment was suspended from having live music for nearly four months because she received three violations of the noise ordinance. She told the commission it was all because of one neighbor who constantly complains.

“It is not fair that one or two people can hurt a business with unfair demands and unfounded complaints,” she said. “It happened during the season and has hurt my business greatly.”
