DUNEDIN - The lack of downtown parking in the city of Dunedin is considered a problem - a good problem. It shows that development and activity downtown is vibrant.

Nevertheless, city officials and a downtown parking committee, consisting of merchants and other stakeholders, say they need to resolve the problem. They are working on developing alternatives with consultants.

“We believe we need to develop an overall parking management plan to make sure that adequate parking is available without disrupting the lives with citizens or businesses. This is our goal,” said Andy Chiodo, a spokesman for the group.

DUNEDIN - The city of Dunedin realized it was losing a significant amount of money in 2009 due to major utility billing errors, and has since worked hard to not only correct those errors but also overhaul the whole system in order to ensure a smooth, efficient and accurate system.

At its Oct. 9 meeting, Dunedin received a final report and update from Water Company of America and not only got a superb report, the city also received an award for its impeccable system.

After the errors were identified in 2009, Phase I began by hiring the outside audit firm, Cherry, Bekaert & Holland to review the utility billing operation, and the firm later reported its findings in February 2010, said Paul Stanek, assistant public works and utilities director. The report identified 16 findings, Stanek said, and had corresponding recommendations.
