BELLEAIR – Town commissioners May 7 honored the late former Belleair Mayor Ed Moran, who served for about 13 years on the commission.

Moran, 90, died April 27. A resident of Belleair since 1959, Moran was elected to the Belleair commission in December 1978 and served through December 1986. He was elected mayor of Belleair in 1988 and served through March 1993.

Commissioners adopted a resolution honoring the mayor and presented it to his family.

“ … Mr. Moran was a resident of the town of Belleair for many years and was involved in many of the activities and affairs of our town,” the resolution said. “ … Mr. Moran was a conscientious and loyal servant in the interest of the state of Florida, Pinellas County and the town of Belleair, having a great amount of civic pride and care in the well-being of his town.”

Born in Brookline, Mass., Moran attended Brookline High School, Boston University and graduated from Holy Cross College. He was a World War II veteran, serving in the Battle of the Bulge.

Moran was a maritime industry executive, working at St. Phillip Towing Inc. and later Seabulk Towing Inc., both in Tampa.

An avid golfer, he was a member of the Belleair Country Club, Carlouel Yacht Club, and the University Club of Tampa.

Ground-breaking set for public works building

A ground-breaking ceremony for the town’s new Belleair Public Works Building will be held at the Public Works area, 1075 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Monday, May 13, 10:30 a.m.
