The City has a number of committees that oversee the adoption, implementation and management of capital investment projects.
The Community Redevelopment Agency committee is made up of the sitting Mayor, City Commissioners and two Business Owner(s) and/or Resident(s). They oversee and approve the expenditure of annually budgeted and Grant funds for projects in the overlay / Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) district, such as the Pier and Bridge Street.
City project requests can come from the public, Commission, constituents, City staff as well as presentations made by product/services vendors. City staff identify, rank and present potential City projects to the City Commission for approval such as vehicle purchases, City park development, City projects outside normal operation, etc. Funding comes from the annual budget and Grant sources.
