Thank you, Bonnie Menge, and your committee: Jon Mead, Carol McMahon, and Shari Guzik, for all your hard work.  This check expresses just how much our community wanted the restoration of our landmark gazebo.

Thank you, residents for your generosity.  Now that the bridge is nearing completion, you will start to see progress being made on the island.    Thank you, everyone who contributed to the building of the new gazebo.

Palms of Terra Ceia Bay CDD




The Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Board of Supervisors met on October 12, 2021, at 3pm in the Back Bay dining room. 

Supervisor Weidner raised some financial questions:  

  1. Why is the reporting of meetings and payment for advertising inconsistent year over year?  It was explained that we changed the time of our meetings to 3pm last year after we had already published a list of the meetings at their original time of 5pm. The non-reporting of payment in the September financials was due to not receiving the invoice until October. 
  2. Why are we still paying RSS the monthly contracted fee when we have not had working gates in months?  It was explained that we are still paying for enrollment and monitoring, but our General Manager will investigate the possibility of lowering our planned maintenance bill.

Two emails were sent to the CDD asking for an accounting of monies spent for the island gazebo project.  Both emails were addressed in their entirety at the meeting.  For your information a full explanation of costs for the gazebo project can be found in Exhibit 4 of the agenda package located under “What’s New” found below the Chairman’s Message on this page.

Thank you for your patience!!!!  Monday was crane day.  Traffic was a bear.  We made two lanes out of one on the entrance side to allow for exiting traffic, since the crane took up a whole lane.  But the good part is the Gazebo parts were lifted and placed on the island, along with granite gravel which will make up a walking lane around the gazebo.  The gravel lane will be finished on October 13, the gazebo will be erected the week of October 18.  Bricks have been ordered and will be shipped out on October 18.  Outside benches to be delivered middle November.  Landscaping and sidewalk …date unknown but hopefully, soon after delivery.

I mentioned that Henry and I had a lunch bet…. not sure who will win, because the gazebo will be up by end of October, but it will be the end of November or early December for everything else.  We may have to do Dutch treat. 

Our next regular meeting will be November 9 at 3pm at Back Bay Grill.  I hope to see you there.

Judi O’Connor, Chairman
