Tarpon Springs voters approved all three ballot questions before them in Tuesday’s municipal election.
Referendum No. 1 will authorize the purchase of vacant property near South Florida Avenue. The 3.49-acre parcel will cost the city $728,000 and will be used for both stormwater management and land preservation. It passed with 82% support.
The second will require the city to conduct a public hearing before June 30, ahead of each year’s budget cycle. It passed with 88% support.
And voters OK’d the implementation of a strategic plan, requiring the city to update it every three years. That passed with 88% support.
