city hall, park are council's main issues

Clearwater's elected officials will grapple with two big issues at meetings next week: where to put the next City Hall and what to do with Crest Lake Park. A City Council work session begins at 1 p.m. Monday in preparation for the regular meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday. Both will be held at City Hall, 112 S Osceola Ave. Both will be broadcast live on the Web at myclearwater.com and on television on Bright House Ch. 615, Knology Ch. 15 and Verizon Ch. 30. Fair warning: There's a long agenda, and the meaty stuff comes at the end.
