Palmetto Bay Home Prepares for Halloween

This has got to be the most creative use I’ve ever seen for nature’s leftovers.  This Palmetto Bay home has giant ghosts floating playfully under their oak tree.  Except these ghosts aren’t made of sheets, plastic bags or crumpled up anything.  They are cleverly cut from the Royal Palm fronds that have fallen off the tree.

The palm fronds lend themselves naturally to this whimsical project.  They have that flowing fabric look.  You just trim the top round, paint them white and add black eyes and mouths and you’re good to go!  I LOVE these!

Palmetto Bay Mayor Sued

Redland Auction GavelPalmetto Bay Mayor Flinn was sued yesterday for not resigning his post as mayor before entering the race for County Commissioner.

The suit was filed by attorney Stephen Cody, a 30 year veteran of election law. According to Cody, one cannot be in office while running for a different office when one may end up serving both positions at the same time.

The lawsuit comes just days before the election. Palmetto Bay residents are left wondering why this is happening now. There will be an emergency hearing this afternoon to determine if his candidacy will be disqualified.  Read more details here.

Old Cutler Road Construction Will Cause Delays

Old Cutler Road Construction AreaPalmetto Bay and Cutler Bay residents who use Old Cutler Road please note that it will be shut down at the end of July for construction.  The South Florida Water Management District will be installing a flow-way tunnel beneath Old Cutler Road and this will impact the stretch between SW 156th Street and SW 162nd Street.

The road will be open to local traffic only.  If you don’t live in the area, make plans for a different route during construction.  SFWMD has stated that the project will take two weeks only and it is slated to begin no earlier than July 26th. Utility services and the popular bike path on Old Cutler may be impacted as well so plan accordingly.  Click here for more information.

Palmetto Bay Mayor Accused of Improper Use of Seal

GotchaAs a REALTOR who sells homes in Palmetto Bay, I like to keep abreast of what goes on in the area.  I came across this and found it interesting enough to comment on.
The Mayor of the Village of Palmetto Bay, Eugene Flinn, has been accused by a magazine editor of improper use of the village’s official seal.  I thought it was interesting that the first comment made on the post appears to be from an educated consumer who’s had some interaction with the mayor and wasn’t at all surprised at the accusation.  I’ll have to return later as I am sure it will garner many more comments.
The Village of Palmetto Bay is a fairly new municipality, having incorporated in 2002.  I suppose in politics, scandals (small and not so small) come with the territory.  Mayor Flinn had not yet responded to the accusation.  I’m keeping an eye out for updates…..
