City may waive Studios' fees

At their 6 p.m. Wednesday meeting, Key West city commissioners will consider a proposal to waive all application fees for The Studios of Key West during the nonprofit's renovation of its new building.

The waiver, if approved, would not exceed $10,100 worth of city permit fees. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley sponsored the proposed resolution that states, "Improvements at The Studios of Key West property at 533 Eaton St. will serve a public purpose and directly benefit" Key West residents.

Commissioners meet at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Old City Hall, 510 Greene St.
