Sebring council to revisit issues
By SAMANTHA GHOLAR
SEBRING - The Sebring City Council is revisiting some previous agenda items Tuesday, including one that ran into trouble during the last meeting when a short-handed council ended up with a tie vote.
Council members will address the purchasing department's bids again during the 6 p.m. meeting at Sebring City Hall.
The janitorial services bid died at the last meeting after John Clark and Scott Stanley voted to go with the low bidder, while Andrew Fells and Bud Whitlock voted in favor of hiring two part-time employees to do the cleaning work for five city buildings.
John Griffin was absent at the last meeting, and it is hoped he will serve as the tiebreaker on Tuesday.
Electrician services will also be rehashed Tuesday after the council instructed city staff to re-bid the item at the Aug. 20 meeting.
Members will discuss (and likely approve) the reservation of dates for six multi-day downtown events put together by Push Event Productions' Casey Wohl and Lora Todd. The duo will be seeking approval for the promised events laid out to council at a meeting last month including Roaring '20s Festival, Flip Flop Festival, Red, White and Boom and more. The events will take place in 2014.
A proposed ordinance for identification signs of commercial zones will be presented to council, and discussion will also take place on the filling of the soon-to-be vacant utilities director position. Current director Marty Roepstorff will retire in late December.
