Council delays action on Circle tree plan
By SAMANTHA GHOLAR
SEBRING -- No action was taking regarding the Circle Park trees issue Tuesday evening. In the absence of two council members, city staff decided to table the agenda item to a later meeting.
City Administrator Scott Noethlich stated that "we wanted to wait until we had full council representation."
The Circle Park trees have been brought back to the council after The Community Redevelopment Agency voiced concerns about leaving a bare space on the circle for stage set up. The council will revisit the item and decide whether to add a live oak to the bare section between South Ridgewood and West Center.
City attorney Bob Swaine was instructed by Sebring Council members Tuesday to draft a new ordinance and create a resolution that would allow the implementation of the Special Events Manual and its policies.
The long discussed manual has been tabled numerous times for consensus reasons and new suggestions. Assistant city administrator Bob Hoffman was brought up in previous discussions for assuming the role of Special Events Coordinator.
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.
