Sarasota News Leader August 9 & 16, 2013 Page 37 Assistant County Administrator Mark Cunningham. Barbetta also pointed to the estimated cost of a regular bus stop shelter in that memo: between $27,360 and $37,360. During a Jan. 29 workshop with the County Commission, Carter had put the cost between $30,000 and $40,000, prompting Commissioner Nora Patterson to remark, "That's just nuts." "Now all of a sudden they've come down to $27,000?" Barbetta told the News Leader on Aug. 5. Asked whether he felt the lower price was just another indication — beyond those in the memo — that staff did not want to pursue the use of chickees, Barbetta replied, "I'm getting that feeling." A chickee stands on the Brighton Seminole Indian Reservation in Glades County.
