City may reverse vote

City commissioners are set to vote at their 6 p.m. Tuesday meeting whether to rescind their Dec. 3 decision that killed a proposed taxi ordinance to convert licenses for ADA-compliant vehicles.

The change would have allowed the Five Sixes taxi company to put its two ADA ready taxis on the streets full-time rather than available for reservations only.

Critics said the law would unfairly give Five Sixes new revenue. Commissioner Clayton Lopez wants to rescind the vote and bring back the issue. The meeting is at Old City Hall, 510 Greene St.


Brainstorming session

The city's planning department will host a brainstorming session as part of the process of amending the Land Development Regulations from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Harvey Government Center, 1200 Truman Ave. City staff is seeking public input and concerns. Anyone unable to attend may fill out a form available on by searching for "2014 LDR Overhaul." The form can be emailed directly to, or mailed to the city planner at 3140 Flagler Ave. 33040.


City's art board meets

The city's appointed Art in Public Places board meets the second Monday of every month. February's meeting is set for 3 p.m. Feb. 10 at City Hall offices at Habana Plaza, 3126 Flagler Ave.

The board was created in 2000 to help create and place works of art across the island. In November, the board recommended the city commission consider holding a competition for a monument marking swimming champ Diana Nyad's world record swim from Cuba to Key West that ended at Smathers Beach on Labor Day.
