The business is located at the southwest corner of San Christopher Drive and Lady Marion Lane. Pheifer Towing has used a portion of the right of way on Lady Marion Drive for parking for years.

“A recent expansion of the applicant’s property resulted in the need to clarify the historical parking arrangement through a formal agreement,” according to a memo to the commission from City Manager Rob DiSpirito. “The continued use of the public right of way in a manner that exists as of the date of the agreement is acceptable to the established development patterns that exist in the general vicinity of the applicant’s business.”

Parking lot contract approved

“The purposes of this project is to contract with a contractor qualified to furnish and install all equipment, labor and materials to complete the work,” according to a memo to the commission from City Manager Rob DiSpirito. “The work will be performed at the existing parking lot at the northwest corner of Highland Avenue and Wood Street. The work includes removal of existing trees and landscaping, removal of an existing dumpster structure, construction of a pervious concrete parking lot, milling and resurfacing of an existing parking lot, construction of a new dumpster enclosure, regarding and reconstruction of the alleyway utilizing washed shell.

Contracts approved
DUNEDIN – The Dunedin City Commission on Nov. 15 voted unanimously, 4-0, to approve a few contracts.

The first was awarding a contract to Stamper Construction of

Tarpon Springs for $179,410 to construct the promenade landscaping and sidewalk replacement improvements along Main Street between the marina and Broadway.

“The work includes constructing an 8-foot-wide sidewalk along the north side of Main Street from Victoria Drive, wrapping around the first driveway on Broadway,” according to a memo to the commission from City Manager Rob DiSpirito. “The western end of the new sidewalk will include a 172-foot sitting wall within an easement provided by 200 Main St. In addition to a wider sidewalk and the sitting wall, the project also will feature large palm trees aligning the Main Street/Edgewater corridor as a measure to show connectivity between the downtown and the marina.”

The second item was to renew a contract to J.H. Williams Oil Company, Inc. of Tampa for $748,282 to purchase gasoline and diesel fuels. The amount was based on budgeted estimated figures in the fleet services fund and in several user divisions’ operational accounts, according to a memo to the commission from DiSpirito. However, the actual amounts could vary, based on fluctuations in the Oil Price Information Services Index in cost of the fuels.

This was a cooperative bid in 2008 that Dunedin participated in. The bid was for a 12-month period with an option to renew for up to four additional 12-month periods.
