SEMINOLE – At the city’s most recent meeting, Trina Watkins of Freedom Square and Lake Seminole Square Retirement Communities accepted the 2004 Sponsor of the Year SUNsational award from the Florida Festivals and Events Association. Steve Malla of the recreation staff presented the blue etched glass award to Watkins during the meeting. They were the only Florida business to win this recognition.

According to the award Web site, “They recognize the value of being a good corporate citizen and are particularly dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for senior citizens in their community. Not only do they sponsor numerous events in the City of Seminole but they provide promotional help in-kind donations and employee volunteers.”

Budget to get first review

A special meeting will be held Wednesday, Sept. 15, to consider the first reading of the fiscal year ’05 budget and establish a millage rate for that same period. The session will be held at 7 p.m. at the recreation center.

The council also approved shelling out $1,200 for street lighting for the residents of Parkview Woodlands subdivision for 98th Street from 82nd Avenue to 86th Avenue. Installation of streetlights was discussed prior to this area’s successful annexation into the city in January 2003.

Kersey Lake faces clean up

Residents along Kersey Lake sent compliments to city staff for work performed in response to a submitted petition to get the water into healthy shape.

“We were very gratified to hear from you regarding the referral to a water analysis company, their recommendations and the eventual installation of an aerator system in Kersey Lake,” wrote Donald Barber, a local resident.

Frank Edmunds, city manager, said that the desire “to keep it viable for the neighborhood has been accomplished by the general services division.”

After-care program status discussed

Councilor John Counts wanted to know the status of a new after-school program he wants to spearhead at the Seminole Recreation Center. Edmunds said that staff training was already happening to support the potential effort. Also, staff members are gathering information about local programs held.

“Once this is done, we will schedule a workshop to talk about the potential for next year,” Edmunds said. The program might be offered for all elementary schools in the city.
