Pre-Construction Meeting for Homeowners set for Nov. 13th

Representatives of Sarasota Public Works will be on hand on Tuesday, Nov. 13th at 6:30 p.m. to answer any questions residents have about the water line project due to begin construction along Jarvis and Lago. The project affects about 69 properties, but will also affect traffic along the corridor, drainage, etc. All are welcome, and affected property owners are encouraged to attend.

One item of particular interest for affected property owners is the possibility of joining together to do a unified deal with a plumber for hook-ups. Such a deal could result in a savings for homeowners.

The meeting will take place in the same room at Sarasota Baptist Church at Proctor and Hand Road that the Lake Sarasota Community Group uses for its general meetings, and on Nov. 13th a general meeting will follow at 7 p.m.

Here's the info from the coordinator:

We will be at the Sarasota Baptist Church on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 6:30 pm. We will have information about where the project will begin, how long the contractor expects it to take, what homeowners can expect to see during construction. It will be a good time for residents to ask questions.

I will have a detailed chart showing fees and charges. We won't know the final costs until the construction is complete but the original $4000 to $6000 estimate seems good at this time.

We will be asking them to place blue flags in the right-of-way where they wish the connection to be. The contractor will give them the flags at the appropriate time.
