Voters will head to the polls March 9.


City opposes offshore oil drilling

The third meeting was a charm for a city resolution opposing offshore oil drilling, first discussed in December and passed unanimously by Dunedin commissioners Thursday night. Previous attempts to join other Pinellas cities in opposition were called too weak or outdated by commissioners, who said drilling could endanger the beach habitats that draw in millions of dollars of tourist revenue every year. The resolution urges state and federal legislators to oppose drilling expansion. "It took us a couple of meetings," Commissioner Julie Ward Bujalski said, "but it was worth the wait."
