Circle K at Veterans and Country Club to be considered

January 19, 2017
By JIM LINETTE ( , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

One of the main topics for discussion at Monday's City Council meeting is a proposed development of a Circle K convenience store with fuel pumps on the southwest corner of Veterans Parkway and Country Club Boulevard.

The planned development project with staff conditions and deviations on setback requirements was previously approved by the city Hearing Examiner. Construction includes a 4,968-square-foot convenience store with fuel pumps and canopy for up to 16 vehicles simultaneously. Auto repair and car wash facilities are not being proposed.

Council also will be asked to approve a city 10-year lease agreement with SalusCare, Inc., for city property at 1105 Cultural Park Blvd., in order to continue offering substance abuse treatment and counseling services. The ordinance acts as an extension of the current lease between the parties which expires in February 2018.

The extension request is being made at this time so SalusCare can expand the number of offices and make a significant financial investment in renovations to the building to meet an increase in demand for services.

Council will take up discussion of an ordinance delving into personnel regulations to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression regarding city employees.

The Mercer Group, a recruiting consultant firm, was hired by the city to seek out applicants to become the new City Auditor next month upon the retirement of current auditor Margaret Krym

Discussions will center on nine semifinalist candidates, four of whom reside in Florida. One candidate from Ontario applied with others hailing from Pennsylvania, Nebraska, South Carolina and Rhode Island.

Monday's meeting begins at 4:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall.
