SEMINOLE – The Seminole City Council authorized the allocation of $295,100 from its fiscal year 2013 year-end fund balance to address council goals and city needs at its Jan. 14 meeting.

The Administration Department will get an additional $85,600 for office equipment as well as to fund public art and city branding projects. Another $80,000 will go to the library. The council provides this amount to the library each year to purchase new circulation materials. Public Works will receive $76,000 for professional and contract services, the planned community garden and the purchase of traffic calming devices. The recreation center also will receive $41,500 to recondition two pools and the Charter Section will receive $12,000 for office equipment and an e-mail record retention system.

In other action items, the City Council:

• approved the use of up to $6,000 in contingency funds for the demolition of an abandoned house at 10148 66th Ave. This is an unusual move by the city, said City Manager Frank Edmunds.

The city has contacted the structure’s owners, but received no reply, and there is no known mortgage on the house, he said. At this point, he added, it’s become a safety concern.

Demolition will take place within the next few weeks and a lien for the amount will be placed against the property, Edmunds said.

• named Vice Mayor Thomas Barnhorn as the city’s representative for the Pinellas County Commissioners’ initiative to fight the National Flood Insurance Program rate hikes.
