DUNEDIN – On June 19, the Dunedin City Commission unanimously approved two contracts on its consent agenda.

The first item was to award a contract to West Coast Roofing and Contracting, Inc. of Clearwater for $67,885 for the emergency replacement of the Dunedin Historical Museum roof. Recent rains have caused significant leaks that require the expedition of this project to an emergency replacement, according to a memo to the commission from City Manager Rob DiSpirito.

The second item was to award a contract to Crom Engineering & Construction Services of Gainesville for $35,150 for the cleaning and inspection of six ground water storage tanks. FDEP rules require that this service be performed every five years, and the last service was done in 2009, according to a memo from DiSpirito.

City OKs license agreement

DUNEDIN – The Dunedin City Commission on June 19 unanimously approved to award a license agreement with New Cingular Wireless. It currently has a 20-year agreement with the company that expires in six years, but Cingular would like to make some costly infrastructure improvements but wants to lock in its investment.

The agreement allows for use of the Curlew Road elevated reclaimed water tank as a platform for cellular antennae deployment, and the new agreement will extend this to an additional 24-year agreement. Its rent of the space increases 15 percent for each five-year period through Oct. 31, 2044 or until the agreement is terminated.

Contract awarded for San Christopher Drive

DUNEDIN – The Dunedin City Commission awarded a contract on June 19 to Augustine Construction, Inc. of Tarpon Springs for $454,485 to complete the reconstruction of San Christopher Drive.

“This project includes reconstruction of the roadway using the full-depth reclamation process,” according to a memo to the commission from City Manager Rob DiSpirito. “The work will be completed from the Bayshore Boulevard/Wilson Street intersection to approximately 100 feet west of Lady Marion Lane. The work includes temporary paint and permanent thermoplastic pavement markings, related maintenance of traffic, and other work as described in the specifications.”

St. Augustine Construction, Inc. submitted the low bid for the project.

City brand standards revised

DUNEDIN – The Dunedin City Commission unanimously voted to OK a revision of the Dunedin Brand Standards Manual at its June 19 meeting. Such revisions include relaxing the regulations on the color standards for the logo.

“We are recommending the city’s color logo be allowed to be printed on any color, as well as in white on any color,” the revision states. “This change will further the promotion of the city’s new logo and brand. In addition, the city attorney was consulted, and he said that the recommended brand standards revision would not violate the city’s trademark license agreement.”

City approves license subordination agreement

DUNEDIN – At its June 19 meeting, the Dunedin City Commission unanimously approved a license subordination agreement involving a Dunedin Country Club loan with SunTrust Bank.

“In order for the Dunedin Country Club to obtain financing for replacing the roof, their computer server, and to pay off approximately $130,000 in member loans, the city is being requested to sign a License Subordination Agreement,” states a memo to the city from City Attorney Tom Trask. “This agreement provides that the city and the club agree that the city’s interests in the license agreement are subject to and subordinate to the mortgage that will be placed on the property for the monies lent to the club.”

The existing license agreement does not allow the club to obtain a loan less than 70 percent of the assessed value by the Pinellas County Property Appraiser, which currently values the club at $605,868. However, in order to obtain the loan needed, the city had to approve a loan of 86 percent of the assessed value.
