Avon Park mayor, CRA advisory chair ask for civility
AVON PARK — Deputy Mayor Brenda Giles asked for and got a special meeting of the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency set for Thursday.
Giles said Monday that issues brought up at last Friday’s Southside CRA Advisory Board meeting needed to be handled by the “Mothership Board,” the CRA board’s nickname among city officials.
She originally asked for today or Friday, but Councilman Garrett Anderson suggested the meeting be added to Thursday’s joint meeting with the Avon Park Police Pension Board.
Council members and staff agreed to add it before the meeting until Arnold Davis, an alternate for the Southside advisory board, asked to have it later to allow working people and parents a better chance to attend.
