Regular Garbage Pickup WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY this week

Regular Garbage Pickup WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY this week.

Due to the Presidents’ Day holiday on Monday, your regular garbage collection on Tuesday shifts to Wednesday instead. So this week, your black cans will be picked up on WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY. Please lend a helping hand (or two) to any neighbor who is sick or infirmed and has trouble placing their garbage cans curbside and returning them after pickup. Thanks everyone and have a great week.

Perry Snell Monument and Lion Updates

Many thanks to our neighbors John Cappa, Josh Buttitta, Doug Ellingsworth and Scott Youngblood for getting the lion statue back atop its base at Toledo and Snell Isle Blvd last week-end. It had been knocked off its base in an accident some time ago and now it sits back on its base as it should! Thanks neighbors, we surely appreciate your help!

Also, as I’m sure you’ve noted the Perry Snell monument in our Parkway that was hit by a car back in mid January is now standing again thanks to the City with repairs made to its corners. The marble raised circle the monument sits atop is still under repair so I’m sure the City would prefer we just observe from afar. We’ll hear more about the additional improvements to that area as time unfolds but it’s certainly nice to see that monument standing again. Appreciation to our City for their quick work on this area!

C. Perry Snell Monument Update

Major damage was sustained when the C. Perry Snell Monument was hit by a vehicle in the early morning hours of January 13th.

Thanks to the City of St. Petersburg, the monument is on its way to being repaired. A company has been contacted to repair the damaged monument and the marble tiled circle. It is our understanding that pieces of the monument will be taken off site for the repairs. Once they are complete, the monument will be put back in place.

Barricades have been placed around the area. Please refrain from going near this end of the plaza until further notice. There are many hazardous areas that could cause serious injury.

During this time, we will be working with different City departments with regards to new landscaping, and the potential for a change in the traffic pattern to prevent future accidents such as this one or the several that have occurred at this location over the last few years. Hopefully a plan can be created that would not only be a safe alternative, but one that would also be aesthetically pleasing.

We thank the City and those involved for always working with us to make Snell Isle a wonderful place to live! Please visit our website, www.enjoysnellisle.com, for future updates and other information.

City assists "sensible sprinklers"

Communications Manager Bill Logan, St. Petersburg Water Resources

City assists “sensible sprinklers”

As we roll into the “dry season,” the City of St. Petersburg and the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) are helping encourage good watering habits through the “Sensible Sprinkling Program.”

This Program offers a FREE check-up to water customers with operable in-ground sprinkler systems using potable (drinking) water, reclaimed water, or well water. Selected participants will receive a sprinkler system evaluation with site-specific recommendations, a diagram of the sprinkler layout, installation of a rain sensor (if one is not in use on the site), water conservation information, and an automatic shut-off hose nozzle.

“It’s a great way to help our customers understand and enhance sprinkler systems,” said Water Conservation Coordinator Chris Claus. “This not only helps keep citizens’ lawns and gardens more appropriately irrigated, it helps save water -- our most precious natural resource.”

To participate, city residents need to complete the Sensible Sprinkling application and forward by e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.
