  2. Dunedin City Commission candidates addressed key issues at a voter forum on September 14, providing mixed opinions on the city’s budget, development issues, and other city topics. said Jeff Miller, who is running for seat 4 Commissioners need to be more careful in government spending, noting that projects rarely stay within budget. Robert Walker, who is running for seat 2, believes there were many budget actions city officials could have taken and anticipates having to take a look at how the debt of the new City Hall is structured. Walker discount Stephanie Goins and Jeff Gow, who currently holds seat 4, did not agree that the city is overspending as they expect to see revenue growth. Check the article for full details of the meeting and information on the candidates. (Tampa Bay newspapers)
  3. As the new Dunedin City Hall nears completion, city officials begin discussing what will happen to the old building. They are currently inclined to demolish the building and create a garden. Other options can be very costly with specialists estimating that the building needs more than $620,000 to replace mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems plus another $600,000 in renovations, which would cost nearly the entire building to be replaced. They are trying to come up with a solution that avoids the extra costs of the city and does not create more parking problems downtown. (Tampa Bay newspapers)
  4. The City of Dunedin has released an update to its new City Hall building. You may have noticed dirt moving and digging up at the construction site. According to the update, they are preparing to install an underground drainage system. You can read more about the system and how it works on the city’s website. While there have been some delays due to supply chain issues and labor challenges, they still expect the project to be completed this fall. Follow Favorite
