West Pasco briefs: Consultant sought to help Port Richey with visioning


Consultant sought to help with visioning

In an effort to bring the city's future into sharper focus, Port Richey officials are looking for a consultant to develop a vision and objectives for the next five years. City Council members, meeting as the Community Redevelopment Agency, will review proposals tonight from four consulting firms. One firm, Lyle Sumek Associates Inc. of Heathrow, offered its services for a maximum of $9,800. The proposals from three other firms — Beeman & Associates Inc. of Tallahassee, the John Scott Dailey Florida Institute of Government at the University of South Florida and Carvajal Consulting & Management of Tallahassee — did not include prices. The CRA meeting is at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 6333 Ridge Road. The City Council meets at 7:30.


Help School Board oversee use of tax

The Pasco School Board seeks volunteers to serve on its Penny for Pasco Oversight Committee. The committee has watched over how the district has spent its share of the local-option 1 percent sales tax since January 2005, when the county began collecting revenue on the voter-approved tax. Several original members of the committee are ending their terms, so the district needs some new blood. Want to be one of the six new committee members who will begin two-year terms in January 2009? The district is accepting applications through June 27. For information, call assistant superintendent Ray Gadd at (727) 774-2776, (813) 794-2776 or (352) 524-2776.
