City to vote on length of meetings

The Safety Harbor City Commission will vote Monday whether to limit how long its own meetings can last. If passed, commission meetings will end at 11 p.m. If more time is needed, a majority vote could extend the meeting to 11:59 p.m. If city business isn't completed by then, officials could schedule a special meeting or put off the remaining business until the next regular meeting. Commission meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. Mayor Andy Steingold made the suggestion after an April meeting lasted until 2:01 a.m. "To go to 2 o'clock in the morning, quite frankly, I think is a bit ridiculous," Steingold said. "I understand and appreciate the serious nature of the matters we deal with but by the same token, to sit up here and be able to make judgment calls at 2 a.m. in the morning … "

The city will honor new inductees to the Dunedin Senior Hall of Fame on Wednesday at the Dr. William E. Hale Senior Activity Center, 330 Douglas Ave. The awards honor longtime residents age 75 or older who have significantly contributed to the community. The luncheon from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. will feature live entertainment. Call (727) 298-3299.
