St. Petersburg Welcomes New Sister City

St. Petersburg welcomes Isla Mujeres, Mexico, as a new Sister City following a signing ceremony on Friday. The island city joins Takamatsu, Japan, which has shared a Sister City relationship with St. Petersburg since 1961.

Formalizing the former Friendship City agreement with the island city means Isla Mujeres and St. Petersburg may further explore similar economic and cultural opportunities, including trade, urban planning, marine preservation, tourism and the arts. The island city is a popular destination for travel, offering snorkeling, scuba and a history rich in Mayan culture. www.stpete.org/culturalaffairs.

No Restrictions for City Reclaimed Water Supply

The mandatory April 1 restrictions for Pinellas County reclaimed water customers will not affect reclaimed water usage in St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg’s supply of reclaimed water currently meets customer demand. However, because spring is typically our area’s driest time of year, customers are encouraged to continue to voluntarily limit watering to twice weekly and eliminate water use between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., when much of the applied water is lost due to evaporation and wind drift. For more ways to conserve water, visit www.stpete.org/water.

 

Flood Insurance Changes Increase Property Insurance Premiums

Beginning April 1, St. Petersburg homeowners will see increases to their property insurance premiums following mandated changes by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) administered through the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act (HFIAA) of 2014. How much of an increase each homeowner incurs is dependent on property location and the property's classification. The increased premiums will go into effect upon policy renewal. Homeowners will see no change in their deductibles. More information on the flood insurance premium increase is available here or at 727-893-SAVE (7283).
