ZEPHYRHILLS — A sizzling summer is around the corner and the Zephyrhills City Council is considering building a giant covered shelter for Zephyr Park.
The topic was tabled at the last council meeting because council members wanted more options for the pavilion. A presentation is planned for tonight's meeting offering four options for the proposed $40,000 shelter.
Already budgeted for the project was $50,000 from the city's fiscal budget, according to a city memo. And if the project is given the green light, the 10-table shelter could be completed by the start of the summer, city officials said.
The council also will discuss using a secondary consulting company to avoid a conflict of interest with Kimley-Horn, the consultant now reviewing the city's traffic studies. So, the city is proposing to use another company, URS Professional Services.
Also, the election of Jodi Wilkeson to the council has left a vacancy on the city's planning commission. The council is set to appoint a replacement and an alternate for that seat tonight.
