[State]  Legislature Budgets Longboat Key Sewer Upgrade
Jacob Ogles, jacob.ogles@srqme.com

Piney Point isn’t the only environmental incident in the region that has earned the attention of Tallahassee. After a Longboat Key sewer main burst last year dumped 11 million gallons of sewage into Sarasota Bay, the Florida Legislature has budgeted $1.25 million to fix the problem.

The money will be matched by an equal $1.25 million in local dollars. State Rep. Will Robinson, R-Bradenton, said it’s an important state priority to protect area water bodies.

“This funding will provide some of the resources to allow a duplicate sewer line to be constructed to avoid another environmental disaster in Sarasota Bay like we had last year,” he said.

In an appropriations request filed by Robinson, he said he will likely need to come back over the next three years and seek more funding, This money specifically will be used for condition assessment, design and other related costs associated with replacing the 20-inch wastewater force main located between the key and Manatee County. The existing force main was constructed back in 1973. And only has a life expectancy of 50 years, meaning it should be replaced two years from now at the latest. Project planning and environmental permitting are already underway.

The frailty of the system was exposed on June 29, when a sewage leak was discovered within the mangrove fringe along the east side of the main in Manatee County, approximately 400 feet from Sarasota Bay.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection last year ordered the Town of Longboat Key to pay a $262,000 fine or provide a greater level of in-kind environmental enhancement on the wastewater system. The state will also monitor improvements.

The project was among significant environmental spending approved in the state budget including $250,000 for flood prevention improvements in Holmes Beach and $50,000 for a watershed restoration project in Dona Bay.

Lawmakers on Friday expect to conclude the 60-day legislative session. At that point, they must focus on advocacy and hope Gov. Ron DeSantis’ veto pen leaves funding in tact. This spending, though, may be safer than most as DeSantis has made water quality spending a priority of his administration.

[ShopTalk]  Sarasota's Earth's Ally Brings Organic Products to Home Gardeners
Brittany Mattie, brittany.mattie@srqme.com

This spring is proving there’s not only lasting interest in gardening, "with 18.3 million new gardeners as a result of the pandemic," according to Earth's Ally, but there’s also explosive demand for chemical-free, natural pesticides. The Sarasota start-up continues to make a name for itself in the organic agricultural industry by strictly and exclusively using 100% non-toxic and all-natural ingredients for its line of gardening products—including its Insect Control, Disease Control and Weed & Grass Killer formulas, which have even been proven more effective when compared to similar products that include chemicals and synthetics. Its complete lineup of Bee Safe all-natural gardening products has been scrutinized by independent laboratories and field-tested by farmers to ensure the brand really does what they say they do: support healthier plant growth for passionate and eco-minded home gardeners. 

With an alliteration-friendly mantra to remain safe for the four important P's: people, pets, pollinators and the planet, Earth's Ally has since expanded to meet the high demand this last year spent mostly at home or in our backyards—growing to nationwide reach in distribution and landing a game-changing Lowe's Distribution Partnership deal. You can now find Earth's Ally on the shelves of 500+ Lowe's locations nationwide, as well as online at HomeDepot.com, Amazon and various other gardening stores including its own e-shop here.

[GoodBite]  Bistro At Sarasota Art Museum Launches Brunch

Bistro at the Sarasota Art Museum of Ringling College, announces the launch of a new weekend brunch menu. Operated by a team of culinary experts from Constellation Culinary Group, Bistro’s new brunch menu draws inspiration from Florida’s regional fruit stands and farmer’s markets by focusing on locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. "We have a really beautiful restaurant which is perfect for brunch between the gallery-space dining room and the covered outdoor seating in the plaza,” said Executive Chef and General Manager Kaytlin Dangaran. “We wanted to create a brunch menu that was easily recognizable but still fresh and light and fun. Coupled with a carafe of mimosas, a bloody Mary, or an iced Irish coffee, we hope for people to come eat, hang out, and enjoy themselves at the museum."

[ASID FL West Coast Chapter]  Legislative Update: Ensuring interior Designers Maintain Their Right to Practice

On July 1, 2020, a new Florida State Interior Design Registry took effect to govern regulated interior designers in the state of Florida. ASID and IIDA (International Interior Design Association) worked jointly on ensuring that the practice of interior design largely stayed intact while the industry did support streamlined and more efficient regulation of the profession.

Since his election in 2018, Governor Ron DeSantis has made deregulation of various professions and occupations a priority of his administration and has worked closely with legislative leaders to support and pass deregulation legislation. Faced with near-certain full-scale deregulation, the professional associations worked with members, chapters, legislators, legislative consultants, and trade groups to successfully find an equitable solution that would protect the core tenets of interior design practice rights in Florida for commercial projects including the items highlighted on the left.

Since the interior design licensing law’s passage in 1994, the Act has been targeted for elimination several times, coming close to complete deregulation more than once. In the past two years, bills were introduced to eliminate ALL licensure, regulation, and practice rights of interior designers. The newly signage law streamlines the process for becoming a Florida Registered Interior Designer, reduces the fees, and eliminates the need of a separate business license. New applicants require only proof of passage of the NCIDQ Exam when applying with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, making registration less burdensome for those entering the profes- sion and moving to Florida from out of State. ASID is in support of the new regulations and feels that it is a win for practitioners who engage in commercial work and Governor DeSantis.
