Learn how little buses will work
The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority will host a public workshop about the new north county services from 6 to 7 p.m. July 26 at the Palm Harbor Community Center, 1500 16th St. PSTA staffers will answer questions about the new 16-person buses that will operate on regularly scheduled routes. Riders will be able to contact PSTA in advance to have the buses pick them up and drop them off up to three-quarters of a mile from the normal route. The buses will then connect riders with other PSTA, Hillsborough and Pasco transit services.
Staff: 'Life Flows Your Way' is fine
The city staff will ask Dunedin city commissioners during their meeting tonight to not make any further changes to the city's new logo. Commissioners in April approved a colorful logo and the slogan "Home of Honeymoon Island" but asked planners to work on a catchier secondary tagline than "Life Flows Your Way." Staffers will recommend against choosing either of two options to be presented tonight. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at Dunedin City Hall, 542 Main St. Among other agenda items up for possible approval: architectural plans for a new fire station, Jolley Trolley contract renewal, and a contract for Norfolk Street reconstruction. Copies of the full agenda are available at bit.ly/M94nkf or at the City Clerk's Office, 750 Milwaukee Ave.
Artist to stop by and sign calendars
Florida Highwaymen artist Robert L. Lewis will return to Antiques & Uniques this month to autograph copies of his 2013 calendar, which features some of his best landscape works. Visit the antiques mall at 303 Orange St. in Ozona from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 28. Calendars cost $15. Original paintings, numbered prints, mouse pads and other Highwaymen art will also be available.
Get free connection to perk up grass
Five more Clearwater neighborhoods now have access to reclaimed water, the highly treated wastewater meant for watering lawns. New service lines in the Glen Oaks/Palmetto, College Hill, Hibiscus, Osceola and Plaza neighborhoods will allow select homes to tap in. There is no fee to connect. More use of reclaimed water could save up to 10 percent of the area's drinking water supply. For information, call (727) 562-4600 or visit myclearwater.com/reclaimed.
