Circle Park trees, special events manual to be voted on Tuesday
By SAMANTHA GHOLAR
SEBRING -- Council members will revisit a couple of tabled items Tuesday evening during the first monthly council meeting.
The long-discussed special events manual, which was tabled during the July 3 meeting, will make its way back on the agenda for council members to take action.
The previous discussion of the special events manual suggested that council wanted the assistant city administrator to act as special events coordinator. The council also agreed at the July 3 meeting that the application fee would be set at $25 per day. The consensus was that the City would assume the monetary responsibility for the first $500 of services provided for the event ( police, public works, etc.) and the event organizer would then be responsible for any additional cost exceeding $500.
City Administrator Scott Noethlich will provide council with all upcoming events scheduled in the downtown area through the spring and seek guidance on what to do with those events.
The Circle Park tree discussion will also be brought back to the council. Following the July 17 meeting, a Circle Park Tree Committee was created to discuss the future of the park.
At a recent meeting, the committee voted to recommend to council to place one large live oak in the bare section between South Ridgewood and West Center. The committee also suggested to leave an open space between Ridgewood and Commerce as an alternate stage set-up are during special events on the Circle. The committee also voted to recommend a handful of conditions regarding the type of tree and the open soil in the area.
The Sebring City Council meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
