FDOT Gulf Boulevard Landscape Project 2022Vice Mayor Mike Hackerson
Councilor Michael Hackerson

Morelli Landscaping completed the Florida Department of Transportation's (FDOT) Landscaping project ahead of schedule and really did a terrific job! They will be maintaining the newly planted right-of-way areas for the next two years as part of their contract. After that time, it will be the property owners' responsibility.

As a reminder, those of you that didn't get new plantings, it is still the property owners' responsibility to maintain the right-of-way in front of your property along Gulf Boulevard. Please check to make sure your irrigation systems are working properly and enjoy our beautiful new right of way.

We hope this adds to the beautification efforts that we focus on along Gulf Boulevard that makes Indian Shores what it is – a great place to live!

Please enjoy and drive, bike, and walk safely.

Office of the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections 

The Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Office reminds voters that Early Voting will take place Saturday, August 13 – Sunday, August 21 at the three Supervisor of Elections Offices for the August 23 Primary Election. The hours for Early Voting are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Supervisor of Elections Offices

  • Election Service Center, 13001 Starkey Rd., Largo (Starkey Lakes Corporate Center)
  • Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St., Room 117, Clearwater (first floor, north side)
  • County Building, 501 First Ave. N., St. Petersburg (entrance on 5th Street)

Voters can check early voting wait times online at VotePinellas.gov.

Florida has closed primary elections. Only voters registered with a political party may vote in that party’s closed primary election. 

There is one "Universal Primary Contest" in the August Primary Election. The Board of County Commissioners District 4 is a "Universal Primary Contest" because all qualified candidates are registered with the same political party. This means all registered voters, regardless of party, are eligible to vote in this contest. The candidate receiving the most votes will be the winner, and this contest will not appear on the November 8 General Election ballot. 

All registered voters may vote in nonpartisan contests, including the judicial and school board contests, that will appear on the August 23 Primary Election ballot. 

Voters may choose to vote by mail, at an early voting location or at their polling places on Election Day.

For more information or to request a mail ballot, visit VotePinellas.gov or call (727) 464-VOTE (8683).
