Council opposes landfill near city

At Monday's Zephyrhills City Council meeting, council members voted 4 to 1 to approve a resolution opposing a proposed landfill on the outskirts of the city. Some city residents were concerned about health and environmental risks that the landfill might pose to the area. Councilman Daniel Burgess voted against the resolution, saying he was neutral on the matter.


Beebe resolves financial troubles

A failed business venture had Commissioner Curtis Beebe flirting with foreclosure earlier in the year, but the matter has since been resolved, Beebe said. In 2004, Beebe started Consultant U, a virtual company that developed training curriculum for Microsoft consultants. Consultant U never took off and was eventually shut down. In 2007, Beebe landed a full-time job with Ibis Inc., a technology company and former Consultant U client. But it took him a while to get back on his feet financially after the failed business endeavor. Beebe fell behind on his mortgage payments and by April, he faced foreclosure on his Church Avenue home. Beebe said he had has since worked out a repayment schedule with his lenders and no longer faces losing his home.
