Transportation infrastructure improvements, including upgrades to the current standards for travel lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes and lighting; the replacement and expansion of aging public safety and law enforcement facilities and equipment; and upgrades to county parks and community amenities are now being scheduled.

Take Back the Tap! campaign

COS-Water-Poster-GirlAmericans spend nearly $15 billion annually on bottled water, in part because they buy into the myth of purity in a bottle and think that it is somehow safer or better than tap water.  The City of Sarasota is promoting a new Take back the Tap! campaign, which is designed to educate the consumer about the many benefits of drinking City water compared to bottled water.

boytakebackethetap1The City of Sarasota is committed to providing safe drinking water to all of its customers and wants everyone to know that City drinking water meets all Federal and State health and safety standards. Since 2009 the City has reinvested over $13.5 million in its water utility infrastructure to ensure that future generations have access to safe, affordable drinking water.
