PALM HARBOR - Nationwide Title Clearing brought a special lunch in for its employees on July 25, but there was more than worker appreciation at its core - all proceeds raised contributed to a $1,000 pledge to the Greater Palm Harbor YMCA.

Owner Michael Workman brought the Old Floridian Trolley Café from its location at 530 Alt. U.S. 19 N. to the parking lot of Nationwide Title Clearing, 2100 Alt. U.S. 19 N., where more than 100 employees spent their lunch breaks.

“We wanted to support the community,” said April O’Brien, director of promotion and marketing. “We have a lot of employees here who benefit from going to the YMCA.”

PALM HARBOR - In the coming fiscal year, East Lake Community Library will have an estimated $83,720 more to invest in upgrades for the library, reconfiguring the interior and future capital projects.

The extra revenue is mainly due to increased property values in the East Lake taxing district. The library began to collect funding directly from a special property tax last year, resulting in a budget of $689,100, which included about $13,000 of donated funds the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative contribution of $149,700. The library brought on new staff and increased the number of hours it’s opened.

This year, property tax revenue is estimated to increase almost 15 percent, bringing the overall budget to $772,820. Library director Lois Eannel called the increase “significant.”

PALM HARBOR - Palm Harbor Community Services Agency board members have begun the process of bringing the East Lake Youth Sports Association, or ELYSA, under their wing.

A month ago, board members of the agency, also known as PHCSA, speculated that the Pinellas County commissioners probably wouldn’t grant ELYSA the new property tax levy it had requested. They joked that they wouldn’t have a choice in the matter if the commissioners decided to give them oversight of the volunteer association, and they questioned how sound the plans were for spending the proposed tax revenue stream.

But on July 16, the board squared with the new reality: as of Oct. 1, ELYSA will become the fourth entity it oversees. And, at least for the first year, the structure of that new entity won’t look anything like that of Palm Harbor Parks and Recreation, commonly referred to as CSA Palm Harbor.
