Peggy O’Shea, a member of the Palm Harbor Chamber of Commerce government affairs committee, leads a town hall meeting April 21 at Palm Harbor Library.
PALM HARBOR – In the community room at the Palm Harbor Library on April 21, the Palm Harbor Chamber of Commerce met with about 15 residents to listen to their complaints.
With no city government, Palm Harbor (which also includes East Lake, Old Downtown Palm Harbor, Ozona and Crystal Beach) often has trouble gaining county funds that can be used to improve the city. So the chamber of commerce took it upon itself to find help.
“We’re here to take notes and hand off your questions to local officials,” said Peggy O’Shea, the chairman of the chamber’s government affairs committee. “We’ll ask the right people for you.”
The Chamber also plans to host a forum for the County Commission candidates once the field is finalized in June.
“I think we need to be very clear to whoever gets the County Commission seat that they need to pay attention to Palm Harbor,” O’Shea said.
Three County Commission candidates – Dave Eggers, Macho Liberti and Marcus Harrison – were among those in the audience.
