Concentrating on the environment

In keeping with a campaign pledge to increase recycling in St. Petersburg, Mayor Rick Kriseman will get details in two weeks on possible ways to enact a citywide service. Kriseman supported a citywide service during the campaign as then-Mayor Bill Foster favored a subscription-based service. After staffers provide details to Kriseman, a plan could get pitched to the City Council. “That is still a priority,” Kriseman said during a news conference, above, last week at North Shore Pool. “I’m looking forward to the presentation.” Kriseman made the declaration while promoting a geothermal project to replace 10 heat pumps needed to heat the pool. The project combines renewal energies like solar and ground water and will save $20,000 a year in energy costs to heat the pool.
