Council sets stormwater drainage standard

SEMINOLE – The Seminole City Council approved a resolution to establish a Stormwater Level of Service standard for public drainage facilities at its Feb. 11 meeting.

“It is important that we do establish a level of service as we move forward with drainage issues and drainage concerns,” said City Manager Frank Edmunds.

The city hired Tampa Bay Engineering to study its drainage facilities and to create a Master Drainage Plan. TBE’s plan is based on a 25-year/24-hour storm event (with approximately 9 inches falling in a 24-hour event).

The plan utilized an “A” through “F” grading system, which was used to identify current drainage service levels. TBE then recommended adopting a Level of Service “D,” which provides the most cost-effective approach for adequate drainage protection.

In other action items, the council also:

• approved a $1,200-contract for Roadtrip Productions to sound and lighting for the Pow Wow Festival.

“We have had some experience with this particular vendor,” Edmunds said. “It’s the low-cost proposal to provide such services.”

Roadtrip Productions has provided similar services for previous Pow Wow events and the Music in the Park series.

• authorized a $500 donation to be given to Cross Bayou Little League.

The council gave Cross Bayou a similar donation last year and intended it to be a one-time donation. So it wasn’t written into the budget this year, Edmunds said.

But they’ve “suffered a lot as a result of vandalism since last year and are seeking some funding to bring it back up to its prior status and condition,” he said.

Though located in an unincorporated part of the county, Cross Bayou attracts some players who are Seminole residents living east of Seminole Boulevard.

• appointed Phyllis Schaefer to the Tree Advisory Committee.
