City Christmas Tree Pickup Continues

Sanitation customers who missed having Christmas trees collected during last Saturday’s citywide free collection event may still dispose of their undecorated tree by arranging for a special collection. Customers may contact Sanitation Special Collections at 893-7398, Monday-Friday, from 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Customers calling after normal business hours may leave their address and trees will be picked up either at the curb or in the alley, depending on where trash is collected. Trees should be loose and not placed inside trash or recycling containers; customers should avoid placing trees against electrical poles, other trash containers, water meters, etc.  All collected trees will be turned into mulch, which is free to residents at the brush sites.

Cold Weather Shelters Open

Four cold weather shelters will remain open in St. Petersburg tomorrow and Thursday, Jan. 17-18. 

Shelters will open between 6-6:30 p.m. and accept guests all night before closing at 6 a.m. Guests will receive a hot meal, a warm, safe place to spend the night and breakfast. All shelters have limited capacity. Families will be placed in family shelters and should contact 211 Tampa Bay Cares, Inc., for information.

2018 Utility Rate Increase Information

Beginning January 1, St. Petersburg customers will see higher rates on monthly utility bills for water, wastewater, stormwater, and reclaimed water usage. Rate increases for stormwater will appear on January bills, while increases for water, wastewater, and reclaimed water will be reflected on February bills. The adjustments were necessary for maintenance and improvements to an aging infrastructure, as well as to offset higher market-driven operating expenses. A typical customer using 4,000 gallons of water per month will see an increase of $11.02; if reclaimed water is used, the increase will be $16.45. More info

Final Input Sought on Marina Master Plan

Citizens are invited to share input on the future design of the St. Petersburg Marina during a 5 p.m. open house Thursday, January 18, at the Sunshine Center, 330 Fifth St. N. The open house will gather community ideas for the Municipal Marina’s Master Plan, which seeks to improve the overall marina’s infrastructure design, including docks, accommodations for larger boats, and improved amenities, in keeping with the Downtown Waterfront Master Plan.
Citizens are encouraged to leave comments and suggestions for the new Marina through an online survey, available through January 31.  More info
