CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Commissioners voted unanimously April 22 to waive the policy on voting at work sessions and approved the appointment of Mark S. Woodard as acting county administrator.

Commissioner John Morroni was absent.

Woodard will take over the work of former county administrator Bob LaSala, who was terminated without cause on April 15.

“I’m glad he’s there,” said Commissioner Ken Welch. “He’s fully qualified.”

Woodard has worked for Pinellas County since 1988, most recently as an assistant county administrator. He began his stint at the county as a senior financial management analyst and then director of the Office of Management and Budget.

“I am gratified by the confidence shown to me by the Board of Commissioners,” Woodard said in a press release. “I have always been proud to serve the citizens of this county, and I look forward to working with the commissioners, staff and citizens as we continue to strengthen our community and enhance the quality of life we enjoy here in Pinellas County.”

Woodard had applied for the administrator’s position during a search that led to LaSala’s hiring after previous administrator Steve Spratt resigned. Woodard withdrew his application.

CLEARWATER - Pinellas County and Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority are making progress toward a final interlocal agreement to govern distribution of revenue from a 1 percent Transit Surtax.

Officials want an agreement in place prior to the Nov. 4 referendum on the proposed Greenlight Pinellas plan. If voters approve the use of a 1 percent transit tax in place of the current funding method of ad valorem taxes, the increased revenue would fund improvements to public transportation systems, including bus service and a future light-rail system.

CLEARWATER - With little discussion April 15, Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved a consultant’s plan for replacement of Beckett Bridge over Whitcomb Bayou in Tarpon Springs.

The decision was a long time coming. Officials have been looking for a way to solve problems with the aging bridge since January 2011 - the start date of a PD&E study by the county and Florida Department of Transportation.

MADEIRA BEACH - The city of Madeira Beach’s building department has apparently become the major moneymaker that had been predicted when it was created, just a year and a half ago.

The department’s revenue producing status was evident at the April 8 City Commission meeting, when a resolution was passed increasing the budgeted building permit revenue for the current fiscal year by $260,000. Another resolution took out $15,000 in expenses to run the building department.
