THE HISTORY On May 14, 2008, the County Commission heard a presentation from Community Services Department staff regarding authori- zation to advertise a Request for Proposals (RFP) "to implement a proposed Beach Paid Parking Pilot Program at the Caspersen, Manasota, and Blind Pass Beaches," the offi- cial minutes say. Afterward, Commissioner Mercier moved to authorize the advertisement, but he stipu- lated the pilot program would include Blind Pass, Nokomis and North Jetty beaches as well as the Caspersen, Manasota and Blind Pass beaches. Patterson seconded that motion. With Staub's support, it passed 3-2. Commissioner Thaxton joined Barbetta in the minority. Shannon Staub stepped down from the County Commission in 2010.
