Discussion on a tower began in 2002, when mously approved the land lease to construct the cell tower at city hall to Florida Tower Partners LLC of Bradenton. The impetus for a cell tower was renewed by former Commissioner Gene Aubry, who said last year lack of cellphone service is a safety issue in times of an emergency.

In other business, commissioners approved an application from a group of residents on Cedar and Mangrove avenues to trim non-native vegetation and sea grapes in city property fronting their homes at Gulf Front Park. Sam Pakbaz, the group spokesperson, said they have been trimming the non-native vegetation for years, and now want to work within the recently adopted landscaping plan for Gulf Park.
