George Gardner's St. Augustine Report/City of St. Augustine re: Saving Tens of Thousands of Dollars By Not Wasting More of Our Money on Flubdubs

Table tabled in debate

Ed Slavin, a frequent speaker at City commission meetings, urged "table the table," and commissioners did just that Monday after discussing commission room designs - and costs.

The existing table has been on loan from Lightner Museum since 1972, and will be moved to the museum's new board room. A replacement table was estimated at $8,500, and room redesigns including a raised platform for commissioners, $20,000 to $25,000.

Facing uncertainty in fundraising for the 450th commemoration, and a smaller city budget for next year, commissioners decided not to tackle the table at this time.
