Cretekos becomes vice mayor
CLEARWATER – At the April 3 City Council meeting, Councilman George Cretekos was confirmed as Clearwater’s vice mayor, a position that traditionally rotates annually. Cretekos, a former aide to U.S. Congressman Bill Young, R-Indian Shores, joined the council in March 2007. He replaces Councilman John Doran as vice mayor.

Airpark to get new hangar
CLEARWATER – The city of Clearwater and the Florida Department of Transportation have entered into a joint participation agreement to build a new hangar at the Clearwater Airpark. The 96,000-square-foot structure will be identical in size and shape to the Airpark’s existing “corporate” hangar and will accommodate eight small or five large aircraft. The city’s $101,357 share of the cost will be borrowed from the city’s Central Insurance Fund and will be paid back in five years. After that, the hangar is expected to earn the city $43,000 a year in rent.

City gets good sales tax audit
CLEARWATER – Given the choice between a tax audit and a root canal, most people would choose the latter. But Clearwater recently aced its sales tax collection audit. Finance director Margie Simmons told the City Council that the city had no deficiencies, and no taxes owed, for the years 2004 through 2007.

City to lease temporary beach parking spaces
CLEARWATER – If there’s an upside to the fact that the slumping economy has delayed the redevelopment of the old Adam Mark Hotel site on Clearwater Beach, it’s that the city will be able to temporarily lease 94 desperately needed parking spaces on the property.

On April 3, the City Council agreed to lease the spaces from the property’s owner, Salt Block 57, LLC, for $120 a month per space. After $20,000 of site improvements, each space is expected to produce monthly revenue of $225.

“It’s a great continuation of our efforts to use whatever land is available to relieve the parking woes until more permanent parking becomes available,” Mayor Frank Hibbard said at the March 31 City Council work session.
