Town hall meetings set for Pasco

HUDSON — Pasco County Commission Chairman Jack Mariano has scheduled a town hall meeting Tuesday at the Hudson High School Gymnasium, 14410 Cobra Way.

Mariano is expected to answer questions about the ongoing SunWest Park project in Aripeka and other issues affecting northwest Pasco.

A $3.4 million contract was signed two weeks ago to construct the park, which will include volleyball courts, a beach, a boardwalk and a wake-boarding ride. The park is situated on a lake. The facility is expected to open early next year, although Mariano said he's aiming for New Year's Eve in order to stage fireworks there.

The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m.

Separately, county officials have scheduled several town hall meetings to talk about the upcoming county budget and results of recent citizen surveys.

Those meetings are set for:

July 28, 6:30-8:30 p.m., at the historic county courthouse, 37918 Meridian Ave., Dade City.

July 29, 4-6 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., at the West Pasco Government Center, 8731 Citizens Drive, New Port Richey.

July 31, 6:30-8:30 p.m., at the Land O' Lakes Community Center, 5401 Land O' Lakes Blvd., Land O' Lakes.
