Bill Loomis continued a discussion of previous concerns regarding a frontage road in Ridge Manor. 

A Spring Hill resident spoke about loose trash littering roadways following trash collection.


County Administrator Garth Coller advised Loomis and the public in general that he cannot compel a commissioner to answer a question immediately when posed during Citizen’s Comments.

Lucille Morano of Forest Oaks is still having difficulty with trash pickup. According to Morano, her trash was picked up at “the last commissioners meeting,” which was February 12, 2019.

Morano reported her weekly pick-up days to be Monday and Thursday.  Morano reports an incident when she called Republic Services about a missed pick-up, and was told Republic had no available trucks in the area, yet soon after the call, Morano reported seeing a Republic vehicle nearby.

Lucille Morano addressed the Board of County Commissioners about garbage collection problems she’s been experiencing for the past six years.   Republic’s new automated collection has not remedied Morano’s issues.
Mary Ellen Urban presented a safety map for Ft. Dade Ave and Citrus Way, thanking Scott Herring for his response to her earlier request.  Urban also asked about red flags in the right-of-way along Ft. Dade Avenue.
